House Judiciary Committee
2138 Rayburn House Office Building
Washington, DC 20515
Dear Congressman Sensenbrenner:
Millions of Americans are losing faith in the American legal system. The courts have, in many respects, become places where the hope of justice is illusory because the law has become the exclusive province of an elite "priesthood" of lawyers who the average person cannot afford to hire for any serious problem.
Pro-se litigants are not treated with respect in the courts, and neither the law nor the courts are user friendly.
I am a lawyer in the Boston area with 24 years of experience and am fairly well accomplished and recognized (see www.grossack.com). I also coach pro-se litigants and counsel legal reform organizations.
I assure you that widespread dissatisfaction exists at every level with our justice system. Such issues as gender bias in divorce, the deserved mistrust of lawyers, the lopsided power of major law firms, the elitist attitude of a segment of the judiciary, the maltreatment of dissidents, including dissident lawyers, the refusal of federal courts to address abuses in state courts-- these all contribute to what some experts now call "legal abuse syndrome." Because of widespread immunity granted to government officials, judges and court officials, redress is increasingly difficult.
Legal abuse has hit my household as well, with a loved one suffering a
stroke from false accusations.
I am writing to ask your committee to hold hearings on "Citizen's
Grievances Against the American Legal System" and on "Legal Abuse."
Our Institute will provide witnesses to give testimony about this crisis. Democratic institutions cannot survive a dysfunctional justice system. It is for all practical purposes a national crisis.
Can I please coordinate with your committee so these hearings can be
scheduled as soon as possible?
David C. GrossackLike David Grossack above, I too years ago offered to appear before Congress along with seven attorneys to testify as to the judicial corruption of the courts. Results: No Response! Not even an acknowledgement. At the time, I did not see the conflict of interest which I now see in appealing to Congress about judicial corruption.By way of foundation of this conflict of interest, I shall refer to the quote of Thomas Jefferson, "Let no more be heard of confidence in men, but rather bind them down with the chains of the Constitution." Now I shall use the illustration of prisoners and guards, Congress being the prisoners to be bound down through the judges using the Constitution, and who are the guards. In petitioning to Congress, you are petitioning to the prisoners (Congress) that the guards (the judges) are not doing their prescribed constitutional duty to bind down the prisoners (Congress) who are being given too much liberty by the guards (judges).Everyone must ask themselves why Congress would be interested in enforcing the Constitution by requiring judges (their guards) to bind them down with the chains of the Constitution? Obviously, Congress wants to take liberties with our Constitution, not less. So Congress returns a "kick-back" (bribe) to the judges (their guards) by rewarding their guards with untold power and protections. Now you are objecting to this sweet-heart deal between Congress and the Judges, and now you want Congress to "take action."So Congress and the Courts each share hand-in-glove the benefits of ignoring the Constitution to the peril of every Constitutional principle, and to the certain peril of all People. This explain why Congress shall never exercise or devise a workable remedy to the judicial problem. And should Congress appear as if they were interested in doing so, it will only be for window dressing and public consumption by giving the judiciary a cosmetic paint-job called "Judicial Reform." They will even argue vehemently the issue back and forth ad nausium to look like they are doing something, but even this is for public appearance. They know nothing is going to change by themselves.This is why the solution to the judicial problem must come directly from us, the People, and not from the government. Hence, J.A.I.L. directly from the People is the only cure, which remedy should have been included in our Constitution back in 1787. It is just too bad that Thomas Jefferson was not privy to the principles now known as J.A.I.L., for had he been, he would have surely made a most vehement argument therefor. Further, there could have been no sound reasoning for any of our Founding Fathers refusing his argument to include it in our Constitution.-Ron Branson - J.A.I.L. Author
