The absence of oversight of Superior Court judges is appalling.  Just as with mortgage brokers, appraisers and the rest of the circle of conspiracy, oversight is at best a window display.

Virtually nobody has any authority over Superior Court Judges.  They work in a vacuum of anonymity, immunity and secrecy.  Any wonder why banks have no fear of them? 

Still researching this, but have pretty much concluded that judges, although highly compensated with public funds, operate with no scrutiny or accountability whatsoever.  This has been confirmed to me by many attorneys passing by the courthouse, while I'm protesting out front.

This begs for a Federal investigation, if mortgage fraud courses through the courts freely at the State level, yet Federal taxes are used to bail out banks, it's justifiable that Federal authority to monitor State courts should be actively excerised and routine, random audits conducted to protect the public from unscrupulous judges.

Stephen, the only entities "watching" the Supremes seem to be the party bosses, making sure their unlimited supply of cash continues to flow.  Here is an entertaining blog comparing Pennsylvania's Supremes to characters in the famous Alice In Wonderland tale...

A newspaper in Wonderland will culminate in Jabberwocky

Paul Carpenter

February 22, 2009

The bewildering Wonderland of symbiosis linking certain parts of our judicial system, as Alice might put it, gets interestinger and interestinger.

In the latest chapter, Alice is played by the Scranton Times L.P., which owns The Citizens' Voice newspaper down in Rabbit Hole, the part of Wonderland also called Luzerne County.

As we read on Friday, a lawsuit against the newspaper company resulted in a $3.5 million judgment favoring a businessman who did not care for stories about federal raids targeting him and William D'Elia, widely referred to as the reputed head of the Bufalino mob family. (Think, respectively, of the March Hare and the Knave of Hearts.)

Now, court documents say the judgment by Rabbit Hole Judge Mark Ciavarella was fixed, with the complicity of Judge Michael Conahan (sequel characters Tweedledum and Tweedledee come to mind) and Conahan's cousin, court administrator William Sharkey Sr.

Ciavarella and Conahan face prison after pleading guilty to taking millions in payoffs to imprison children, on the flimsiest of grounds, in for-profit juvenile detention jails. Cousin Sharkey pleaded guilty to embezzling public funds.

Those convictions, however, have nothing to do with the newspaper case, at least not as far as we know.

D'Elia, the Knave of Hearts, is already behind bars, on a nine-year bit for money laundering and witness tampering. Other members of the Bufalino mob were convicted of fixing a jury for the Mad Hatter, aka Louis DeNaples, a convicted felon who owns a slots casino in Monroe County.

(To write a book on how DeNaples got a Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board license, we'd need someone with an imagination wilder than that of Lewis Carroll.)

Apart from all that, Tweedledee (Conahan) and the Mad Hatter (DeNaples) worked together, The Citizens' Voice reported, on the board of a Dunmore bank.

I read the whole 26-page court petition challenging Ciavarella's $3.5 million ruling, and it is just as entertaining as any Carroll book.

It said Ciavarella and Conahan collaborated to finagle that ruling after Cousin Sharkey ''steered the assignment of the trial to Judge Ciavarella.'' Various pieces of evidence, it said, ''strongly suggest that the $3.5 million non-jury verdict was fixed.''

An unidentified witness is quoted as telling of ''direct connections between D'Elia and Judge Conahan and/or Judge Ciavarella.''

The Citizens' Voice stories, the petition observes, told of a federal investigation of D'Elia and businessman Thomas Joseph, the March Hare, including raids on their properties. Federal affidavits said the two ''are involved in and/or have knowledge of various federal criminal investigations.''

The petition then asserts that Ciavarella disregarded evidence upon which the newspaper relied -- even that in federal search warrants and affidavits -- when he decided the newspaper had defamed Joseph et al.

The petition appeals his judgment to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, which is where this fantastical tale takes a truly bizarre turn.

The Supremes (you may think of the Dormouse, who can sleep through anything, including the wanton trashing of the Pennsylvania Constitution) are the very people who paved the way for the DeNaples crowd.

They also preside over the state's entire judicial and legal systems, which have a national reputation for ethical lapses, corruption and a lack of disciplinary sanctions (exclusively handled by the high court).

In earlier columns, I've reviewed links between all sorts of judicial and political figures -- former state Attorney General Ernie Preate (who did time on a corruption conviction), the Supremes (a long history of scandal), Sen. Vincent Fumo (now on trial), and the Queen of Hearts, Gov. Rendell (who took big money from the Mad Hatter).

I'll go out on a limb (I fancy myself the Cheshire Cat) and predict that when the Supremes uphold the Ciavarella/Conahan/Sharkey ruling (as they surely will), their written majority opinion will make Alice's poem, Jabberwocky, seem sensible by comparison.
