Just Released Public Records from the Attorney General

These documents were just released by the Washington State Attorney Generals Office. They paint a picture of just how corrupt the AG’s office with the diversion of public funds to aid and assist the “non existent” association of Superior Court Judges.

The violation of the public trust perpetrated by this association, which unlawfully uses my name, is obvious but has flown under the radar of almost everyone for years and years.

They collect money from each and every county in this state under the guise of a “association membership due” however there is no association. In 1933 the legislature created “The Association of the Superior Court Judges of the State of Washington” as the Constitution prohibits the legislature from creating a corporation (See Article XIII Section I of the Washington State Constitution) the act created a new State Agency subject to the Legislative branch.

The Judges have then charged the counties annual dues of $1000 per Judge and $500 for each and every Commissioner (whether Constitutional or otherwise), in King County this amounts to over $50,000 per year. This money is then largely used to hire a private lobbyist named Tom Parker from Spokane ($100,000+ per year).

The Judges however like to “walk the fence” between a private entity and a public entity. In 2011 the Judges or some of them filed a lawsuit against Barbara Jo Fulton and prevailed in obtaining a $450,000 judgement, in favor of the non existent entity payable to then Pierce County Superior Court Judge Linda “CJ” Lee (Lee now serves as Division II Court of Appeals Judge as appointed by Gov. Jay Inslee) and/or Pierce County Superior Court.

As these documents released from the AG’s office demonstrate they also like to get the free legal services of AG Deputy Jeff Even.

Lots of questions and only foggy answers to who and what these people are.

Notice on many of these official filings that address listed is the address of the AOC building in Olympia and the group “SCJA” did not legally exist until June of 2012.

What this means is that these lobbying efforts were conducted in contrast to many State laws, and where did the money come from?


Welcome to the SCJA

The SCJA is short for Superior Court Judges Association a Washington State licensed business, we are in no way affiliated with or a agency of the State of Washington, we provide fee based and no fee based Judicial accountability consulting, but here all you will find is plenty of free citizen focused resources all designed to enlighten the average person concerning the activities of our Judiciary.

Given the requirement we the people have for information about what our government is doing and how it conducts the business of the people this resource is born. The foundation of our republic is based on the principle that our government is for the people, of the people, and beholden to the people who created it not the other way around.

The last couple decades have brought enormous change to one branch of our government that has gone mostly unnoticed and has largely escaped public scrutiny, the Judiciary. Formation of many sub-groups from the “Board of Judicial Administration” (BJA), the “Administrative Office of the Courts” (AOC), to the re-animation of long since dormant associations (District, Municipal Court Judges), and “The Association of the Superior Court Judges of the State of Washington“.

The most powerful tool available to the average citizen is knowledge, simply put one cannot control abuse of power if that abuse is shielded from inspection, what information posted here should be considered bread crumbs because the Supreme Court in our state has decided, under the color of law, that they are somehow immune and exempt from the single most powerful tool created in the last 50 years by the people- The Washington State Public Records Act (codified as RCW Title 42.56).

RCW 42.56.030 The people of this state do not yield their sovereignty to the agencies that serve them. The people, in delegating authority, do not give their public servants the right to decide what is good for the people to know and what is not good for them to know. The people insist on remaining informed so that they may maintain control over the instruments that they have created. This chapter shall be liberally construed and its exemptions narrowly construed to promote this public policy and to assure that the public interest will be fully protected. In the event of conflict between the provisions of this chapter and any other act, the provisions of this chapter shall govern.

Nothing contained on this website nor any comments are intended to be legal advise and should not be confused for such, the legal arena is a complex and often confusing place, will a lawyer help you or become part of the problem for your specific case I can’t answer that question. Knowledge is power and if you have to interact with the legal system learn everything you can, it is cheaper online than in front of a black robe. If you need legal help for your case please seek those professionals, usually a phone number for one can be found on the back of most transit buses.

Many mistakenly believe our Justice system is Adversarial in design and construction between only the litigating  parties, do not fool yourself because everyone in the Courtroom is your adversary and deserves to be treated as such, including all Judicial Officers present.

Protection of your rights is your responsibility, never forget. No Judge or Lawyer should ever be relied on to protect you and your family from abuse or deprivation of rights, question this statement- just ask any father who has been through the Family Law system in our State.

Whether your visit here today is based on being thrown into a unfamiliar and frightening family law courtroom, a legal researcher, a member of the Judiciary, or simply have a passing interest in our Judicial branch of government please accept my warm and sincere welcome and comments are always appreciated.
