KCSC Judge James Doerty Lawsuit

In our legal system there is a doctrine called the Appearance of Fairness, it is spelled out in statute several places and Judicial Cannons require it. but it is by implication included in every single one, it is fundamental in application. Case law on this can be found in the 1972 case of State v. Madry, in which the following decision was offered by the Washington Supreme Court:

“—at 70: The appearance of bias or prejudice can be as damaging to public confidence in the administration of justice as would be the actual presence of bias or prejudice”

“Next in importance to rendering a righteous judgment, is that it be accomplished in such a manner that no reasonable question as to impartiality or fairness can be raised”

So in following this doctrine (or NOT), Judge Jim Doerty filed a lawsuit in and through his legal counsel (Mark Leemon 12-25-12 WBAR Lawyer Directory Mark Leemon and Craig Vernon 12-25-12 WBAR Lawyer Directory Craig Vernon) in King County Superior Court, cause number 12-2-25288-2 SEA 12-25-12 KCSC Doerty Docket. The case has been assigned by Presiding Judge Richard McDermott to be ruled on by Judge Julie Spector.

To illustrate this defect an examination of the hierarchy at KCSC:

12-25-12 KCSC McDermott Employee Detail

12-25-12 KCSC Inveen Employee Detail

12-25-12 KCSC Doerty Employee Detail

12-25-12 KCSC Spector Employee Detail

Judge Dick McDermott is the Chief Presiding Judge and according to the employee detail he is the only Judge in King County who reports to the People who elected them, Judge Laura Inveen Chief Civil Judge reports to Dick, Judge James Doerty reports to Dick, Judge Julie Spector also reports to Dick.

One big happy family down there and clearly the defendants in this action stand little chance at equal protection under the law.

Judge Doerty had options as the documents indicate, he could have simply filed this action in Federal Court (about three blocks from the King County Courthouse) he could have filed it in Snohomish County or Pierce County as the Court Rules allow, but he didn’t he used his position of authority to send a clear message to the defendants “pay up because me and my friends will take care of this case”. Threats and Intimidation, sounds like the Doerty I know.

Now moving off the massive procedural defects present we examine the substance of Doerty’s lawsuit; He was so physically and mentally damaged he feels entitled to some (large) financial settlement, he states he was on constant medication (assuming pain relief medication like OxyContin – Street name Oxy or OC which is best described as synthetic Heroin) for the pain, Found it hard to function at his Job (he still ruled on years and years worth of cases) many Seattle Lawyers I have spoke to about Doerty call him “unpredictable at best” even stating “He is the most overturned Judge in the State at the Court of Appeals”.

So we have a sitting Judge admittedly on constant drugs, perpetual pain to the degree he found it hard to function at his job, and suffering from ongoing and serious emotional damage.

I have first hand experience with Doerty and not as a litigant as he has never ruled on any case which I was a party, if I were to describe him I would say out of control, biased and unaware of his professional responsibilities, criminal, totally devoid of any personal acceptance of accountability, just an angry man.

The good news is that Doerty is set to retire from the bench within the next couple weeks, the bad is that he will do so getting a full judicial retirement salary.

Another example why the Judiciary should not be self governing nor self policing.

    Judge Doerty took over my family law case at the last minute from Judge Alsdorf. When I arrived late, Judge Doerty denied my order of protection. I’d sustained facial injuries from my ex’s fist needing reconstructive surgery. I have a child. My ex is decidedly gay & made porno films, yet I was denied protection order and custody. Child support paid=$40,000. Child now grown heroin addict collecting welfare in her Dad’s $500,000 house (paid off in 5 yrs). Gay parnter’s income not considered when calculating support. He’s Starbuck’s most successful corporate accountant. http://info.kingcounty.gov/Assessor/eRealProperty/Detail.aspx?ParcelNbr=7228502435
    I’m merely a decorated Veteran. No one protected me or my child.

    Please please please help me! I just had the worst court experience with this person (Doerty). My kids are about to pay the price for this man’s craziness. Whoever wrote this…. please contact me at [email protected]. I can use any information that you have. This man is ruining children’s lives and it has to stop and I am ready to go public with this.

  5. Vicki Taylor says:

    I am appalled. My Daughter was in his court room today. I was with her so she could get a visitation modification. Her father was assigned a supervisor for visits. The father of her child is abusive, kidnapped her child and then got a restraining order so she couldn’t see the child. As my Daughter’s father was out of town, we requested that I be the supervisor, and he wrote a letter recommending me. I have no criminal history, not even a speeding ticket. It was denied, even though it was Christmas Eve day, because the abuser lied and said I was an unfit. A few days ago, he said it was ok. The judge didn’t listen to any thing my daughter had to say and she was never served papers so that’s why she was asking for a modification. The judge is a mean, crotchety, heartless man who should please retire.

    To The Judicial Commission of Washington State & All Others~

    I am writing the Washington State Judicial Commission to address a severe injustice perpetrated against me and my son starting in June of 2015, and beginning earlier that year in January 2015. I am requesting relief from this burdensome criminal injustice committed against me and my son, and also an investigation into the matters I am about to explain.

    I am a single mother of a young toddler boy who is currently 29 months old, but whom I have not been able to see or hold since September 16, 2015, since he was 20 months old. My child was forcefully removed from my physical and legal custody by purposefully rushed and falsified legal proceedings that should have never been allowed to occur by standards of Washington’s State Family Law RCW Code, the Federal Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction Act (UCCJA), Parental Kidnapping Prevention Act (PKPA), and Washington State’s Judicial Commission Code of Conduct and Canons. I am concurrently also requesting a Federal Audit into all proceedings that have occurred dating back to my son’s birth, January 14, 2014, and all future proceedings that will occur with this case and subsequent counter lawsuits pertaining.

    {“The Supreme Court has warned, “Because of what appear to be Lawful commands [Statutory Rules, Regulations and -codes–ordinances- and Restrictions] on the surface, many citizens, because of their respect for what appears to be law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their rights, due to ignorance… [deceptive practices, constructive fraud, barratry, legal plunder, conversion, and malicious prosecution in inferior administrative State courts].” (United States v. Minker, 350 U.S. 179, 187, 76 S.Ct. 281, 100 L.Ed. 185 (1956);”}

    I am attaching further information and evidence that was submitted to the courts but was then disregarded illegally as far back as August 2015. This information shows through official evidence and documentation all within the WA State law, that the hearsay claims against myself from my domestic abuser and his lawyer to effectively kidnap my child and conceal him over state lines for over 10 months, have been knowingly false, erroneous, illegal and felony maneuvers allowed through by local and state officials the whole time.

    This includes the documented domestic abusers themselves, (Adam Lewis and Lawrence Lewis), as well as the lawyer (Nathan Cliber), WA State prosecutors (Dan Satterberg, Jamie Johnston, Jordan Marken), Seattle detectives (Luke Hillman and Garski), and specifically and especially, several judges (James Doerty [RETIRED], Susan Amini, Barbara Linde, Kathryn Fields [RETIRED-30 YR FAM LAW LAWYER], Canada-Johnson, Carlos Velategui, SVETSKY, Larry Besk [RETIRED], Svetkey[Oregon Judge], and finally the major violator of his own Judicial Canons, Richard Eadie). All this will be documented through court transcripts which are not to be tampered with and is yet another felony action, if found to be done and “tweaked” to commit these crimes.

    All these individuals, whose salaries are paid for by taxpayers, all who knowingly and maliciously committed fraud, obstruction of justice, and RICO-like racketeering together to forcibly and violently remove my child from my arms under false, illegal, and defaming principles and assertions. Claims that had no legal barring and none of which was held up by legit evidence.

    I was stalked and also cyberstalked online over the course of several months, prior to and after the illegal kidnapping of September 16, 2015. They proceeded to use this information to skew and manipulate artistic and expressive endeavors to get my son back, for the purposes of constructing a false case and narrative around why they committed these crimes against me and my child months prior. All this was done maliciously and through cunning and calculation by those people I have named above. There are others involved, but these individuals were the major offenders and felons.

    This was done in hopes of justifying their “illegal adoption” of my own biological child to our abuser, who was forcefully removed from my arms months prior and without legal wherewithal, through a major trafficking and extortion venture. This was set to take place under the radar here in King County, WA and Multnomah County, OR, and over the course of a year or more to attempt to make the crimes less perceivable by the general public and oversight divisions. Alas, the evidence I first presented in August and throughout the proceedings still rings as Truth, as well as the large paper trail of crime done to and involving me and my child, still exist along with this Truth, which will not remain covered for much longer.

    The goal was to deny me legal assistance throughout this process, rush hearings, and deny evidence from social workers, doctors, and PhD’s who all were trying to put this abusive attempt by Adam Lewis to use the courts for extortion, domestic and child abuse, in context for the courts. These individuals mentioned above-used manipulation to take advantage of poor judicial oversight and a corrupt court environment they had constructed, and used seemingly “legal channels” to do so (against Judicial Canons and Codes of Conduct), which we now know to be anything but “legal”. Again, this was all done AFTER my son was taken, to create a false narrative to justify their initial illegal kidnapping.

    I am requesting a deep and thorough investigation and federal injury into these major felonies committed against myself and my child. I am requesting my child be placed back in my full and legal custody immediately, and out of the way of danger, where he currently resides in Portland, Oregon with his abusive father. I have had a First Amendment Right social media campaign going strong the whole time this has been going on, and thousands of people, friends and family, also including the media, social media, the FBI, and other federal bureaus agencies, as well as state and local officials all watching and well aware of the events that took place, and some of them, as they were happening.

    I expect this to only grow larger with this investigative request, and those thousands of people will be eagerly awaiting your response and inquiry assessments, as they too are all well aware of evidence presented, as well as the WA State RCW statutes, Federal Laws, and WA State Judicial Canons obliterated during this process of stealing my only child from my arms for money. I imagine I am one of many dealing with this severe abuse of our justice system to enact crimes against fit and loving mothers and small children, in an attempt to fight as a Pro Se litigate for the lives of our children against this horrendous abuse. I know so, and talk with those other mothers frequently. I know it is only a matter of time before we band together to take this on VERY publicly. I believe it is in everyone’s best interest that this movement for mother’s rights and parents rights begin right here in Washington State with this case: #15-500228-8 SEA and my son River Roland Anderson and a judicial inquiry and investigation, because the movement against political corruption within our judicial environment has already begun with the same.

    I do not have any record, or even points on my license prior to this atrocious white collar crime done to me and my child in September 2015. Adam Lewis, whom my child was given to and remains concealed with, does have a record, as do all of his witnesses against me (ie. Carol Hough, Jennifer Barbee), and from the research I have done, so do all of the individuals I named above, have quite a history of malfeasance and even facilitation of child and domestic abuse and extortion, when they themselves could somehow be the beneficiaries of such crimes.

    I encourage you to do the right thing and what your position and the law requires, and begin an investigation immediately into the information I am bringing to you through this letter and subsequent evidence. I am more than ready and willing to provide any additional evidence needed to back up my assertions. I am also requesting an emergency hearing to bring my son home and dismiss the illegal actions already taken so far, which has removed him from my loving care and custody.

    Please let me know how I can be of assistance to your process.

    Thank you, beyond words, for taking the time to look into this and correct these judicial attempts to inflict pain and suffering on a young mother and child, for no other reason whatsoever than to illegally facilitate domestic abuse, child abuse, and extortion through our own King County Court System here in Washington State.
