Former NY State Chief Court Clerk Sues Judges in Federal Court...CLICK HERE FOR FULL STORY

The former chief clerk for Onondaga County Family Court has filed a federal lawsuit alleging she was forced from her job because she would not conspire to spread negative information about a State Supreme Court candidate.

(Click on the Federal Complaint to the right)

Seems the former chief court clerk, Ms. Morin, didn't like that Administrative Judge James Tormey and former Executive Assistant John Voninski wanted her to spy on and provide dirt about State Supreme Court candidate David G. Klim who was a Family Court Judge at the time.

She alleges that her life was made unpleasant when she refused to conspire with the judges, including being made to fill-in for vacationing clerks in far away places. She was apparently asked whether or not she was a "team player."

This latest peak at procedures on the inside of a New York State Judicial District's administrative office follows The Westchester Guardian report just a few weeks ago that a criminal investigation was called for involving the alleged improper actions of Westchester County Surrogate Judge Anthony A. Scarpino and New York City Administrative Judge Jacqueline W. Silbermann.

Seems like honest people are feeling a little bit more empowered by the presence of Chief Administrative Judge Ann T. Pfau.

Extortion is one of the weapons that Judges use all the time, one way or another.

I'm comforted in knowing that the corruption in and the abuse of the New York court system is everywhere throughout the state.

How'd this happen?!?

the rule of law stopped over 50 years ago in the state of new york that's when the gangster/lawyers-judges took over

We'll find out very quickly if Ms. Judge Pfau is a "team player" or a justice-saving reformer.

I'm beginning to lean with the Boss Tweed connection with the current Judicial-Disaster-Kaye state of affairs. Sad, it's very sad. I'm not very optimistic.

So every day another outrage from our courts....from every court and from every part of the state.

There's no "peak" into how some administrative judges (read: thugs) bully people around. Some do it right in the open. It's their way or the highway.

If Judge Pfau tries to correct, or even discuss, the misdeeds of certain powerful OCA people, she'll be toast. And she knows this.

New York's court system is broken and it will remain that way. Spitzer and Cuomo know this too, and they are afraid to act because they know the consequences.

The Empire State is really the State of Retaliation... you play by the corrupt rules of a bunch of bums, or they will get you. Plain and simple.

watching from the top said...

Serious allegations, supported by documentation, against top Administrative Judges Tormey, Nicolia and Silberman. Seems like there's a problem at the top of the power grid. And these people want raises?

what's a voninski? said...

MAKE SURE YOU READ THIS LAWSUIT !!! So Chief Court Clerk Ms. Morin "pisses off the wrong people" and gets re-assigned to cover a clerk's office 100 miles away.

Who is this jackass VONINSKI. Yank him off the bench, take away his law license and re-assign HIM to westchester county where Admin Judge Nicolai can show HIM a hostile work environment!

this is standard fare for those of us that labor in the courts for tinhorn judges

Anonymous said...

I just read the Morin lawsuit. This is child's play compared to what has been going on in Westchester County. The King of the County (Hon Nicolai) could show those people in Syracuse a thing or two about knocking people around who don't submit to their dumb power-driven demands. Also, if I'm not mistaken that Administrative Judge Tormey's ancestors were the people to conceive of the concept of TORMENTING people; they'd be proud of him.

power corrupts and total power corrupts totally and then they have the nerve to demand pay raises

The Kaye legacy will someday show corruption under her far worse than any Boss Tweed could have imagined. From the top, all the way down. Thank you, dear useless Chief Judge Judith Kaye. You, too, have sold your soul for greed and power.

Anyone counting how many days left we have under her?

Anonymous said...

Please keep us updated on this lawsuit. Thanks. 3 Cheers for Ms. Morin!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

I heard there will be another lawsuit like this one within a few weeks...big names in top court jobs being sued by a state court employee.

Think there's a problem here, dear Judge Kaye?

I sadly agree that the corruption under Judge Kaye can, in fact, be compared to what existed under Boss Tweed. 4 words: Out Of Control Corruption!!

I want to follow this story and maybe write to the judge. Does anyone know the newspaper that'll be covering it? And how do you write to the judge? Thanks.

This is a great story. A federal agency should be the ones to speak to her. I'm sure they would get detailed information that could go along way to cleanup some of the current situation.

Hope that the Judge(s) that did this get screwed to the wall, that way they will stop screwing with people.

And this thug of a judge is in charge?!?

What's going on here? We need to really expose this group of bums for treating this woman the way they did. Shameful.

Anonymous said...

This garbage is going on all over the state to good and honest state employees. I too applaud Ms. Morin for confronting the cowards.

Think about the fact that this could happen to anyone. If it happen to you what would you do? My heart goes out to Ms. Morin.

I AM A LONG TERM ATTORNEY WITH A GREAT RECORD (27 YEARS) WHO FILED A CLAIM AGAINST JUDGE SUSAN KNIPPS AND THE SUPREME COURT OFFICERS IN NYC FAMILY COURT FOR BEATING ME UP AFTER PUTTING ME IN A HEADLOCK AND BODY LOCK IN OPEN COURT JUST AS WE WERE STARTING THE DAY. THE NY AGENS. OFFICE IS DEFENDING THIS. I SERVED NOTICES OF INTENT TO SUE AND THE CLAIM ITSELF. KNIPPS WAS A CLERK TO KAYE. HER COURTROOM IS SOMETHING OUT OF A BAD MOVIE. WAS ATTACKED AGAIN IN FRONT OF JHO PALOS IN A RELATED SUPPORT PROCEEDING AFTER HE SHUT OFF THE TAPE RECORDER. HAVE WITNESSES TO BOTH. THAT ATTACK WAS THE BEGINNING OF AN ONGOING ATTACK AGAINST ME AND MY CLIENTS, ALL WHISTLEBLOWERS. PS. NEITHER THE EDNY IN LONG ISLAND OR BRKLYN ARE ADA COMPLIANT FOR THE DISABLED. HOW DID THEY GET A C/O?

I heard about the Brooklyn incident,WOW what a story. This will put a very bad stink on OCA and DA`s office.

June 13, 2009 What are the particulars of the Brooklyn incident?

Anonymous said...

Erie County Surrogate Court Judge Barbara Howe is beyond corrupt. She blatantly ignores the law and parties rights. Her favored attorneys firm know this and use it to the hilt. When she is asked about her blatently unfair rulings her stock answer is, "you can appeal that". She does what she does because she can. Both her ties to Appellate Divison Fourth Dept. judges should be investagated.
