All In The Family: Nepotism in the New York Courts...CLICK HERE TO SEE FULL NEPOTISM SUBMISSIONS

Here are some Comments we have received regarding Nepotism: .....

--While some know that Lippman's wife Amy is an OCA employee most don't know that Lippman's childhood best buddy is Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver........

--OCA chief of employee relations, Lauren DeSole is the "niece" of her predecessor, Andrea Lurie.

--DeSole's boyfriend, former Supreme Court officers assoc. VP John Agnetti, was …appointed to an administrative job with OCA a few years ago after losing a union election.

--Nassau County chief court officer, Jim DiNapoli is the brother of State comptroller Tom DiNapoli.

--Staten Island Family Court chief clerk William Quirk is the brother of Dennis "King of the Courts" Quirk. Dennis Quirk's daughter also has a … job in NYC family court.

--9th JD court officer boss Bob Kane married into the family of court of appeals justice Joseph Bellacossa.

--Captain Alvin Benson of the 9th JD is the nephew of a Supreme Court judge in NYC.

--9th JD boss in waiting, Danny …Leddy is the little brother of former chief court officer Tom Leddy.

--Court officer Major Jeanette Jordan is married to OCA attorney Mark Jordan.

--Bronx court officer boss J.Mark Bodde is the nephew of former Supreme Court judge Tom Galligan.

--Galligan has two other nephews named Kelly who have … jobs in the Appellate Division.

--NYC Family Court boss Tim Shanahan is the nephew of judge Keating, who is retired and in charge of the state judicial institute.

--OCA deputy inspector general Greg Salerno is the son of Bronx judge George Salerno.

--IG investigator Bob Piazza is the son in law of former NYC criminal court chief clerk Arthur Reilly.

--…don't know who Bronx Supreme Court chief clerk Steve Clark is related to…?

--…Lippman's wife… also receiving a state paycheck… in 2000, the Association of Justices criticized Jonathan Lippman for trying to curtail political patronage in court system. Lippman wanted state judges to approve the hiring of lawyers, real estate managers and other professionals by receivers to help ensure that receivers' hiring practices are based on merit, not on political favoritism or NEPOTISM-- yet, that's what Lippman proposed... Think there's a DOUBLE STANDARD here?!?

---Question?….…Answer: Queens Civil Court Judge Anna Culley's husband, Kevin Culley, is a staff attorney at the Departmental Disciplinary Committee at 61 Broadway.

--legal question for all you lawyers out there …Is it nepotism if you get a job for your home's cleaning women's husband? I won't mention that the "boss" is a state employee who works at the appellate division 1st Dept. Can anyone say: "out of control?"

BUFFALO HAS FAMILY MEMBERS RANKING IN GROUPS OF 12 AND 13 IN SEVERAL COURTS AND ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICES WITHIN YARDS OF EACH OTHER. THESE GROUPS ARE ALSO SEVERAL IN NUMBER WITHIN EACH COURT AND HUSBANDS, WIVES, COUSINS AND IN-LAWS ARE RAMPANT IN THE SAME COURT! NO ONE SEEMS TO BE WATCHING THE NY COURT CHICKEN COUPS!

WELCOME to the INCEST CLUB, a full servicing organization if you know what we mean

Are there any nepotism laws on the books? And knowing that the rats know how to get around ANY rule, law or regulation, who is or should be monitoring this? And if there aren't any laws concerning nepotism in our all-important courts, why not? THIS IS HOW THE COURTS BECAME SO CROOKED !

fed up said...

They have gamed the system and are screwing everyone they can under the cover of the so-called LAW ---- ALL THE PIGS ARE EQUAL BUT SOME PIGS ARE MORE EQUAL!

we only have a chance if the FBI steps in, and an honest federal judge and monitor get involved!

happily in the family said...

You people are just jealous. You just wish you could fix tickets and lawsuits with one phone call to a friend or family member. If you want fair, unbiased, uncrooked judges, then move out of New York. It's about money people, when will you get it. If you stay, just keep quiet. And know you don't have a chance- it's OUR system of law, not yours. We own it, not you.

downstate watcher said...

Yo Buffalo, give your downstate friends some names, huh? We'd like to know how incestuous things are up there. Besides, I'm sure some of your peoples are related to some of our peoples in and around NYC. It's great that their STATEWIDE racket will now come to light. (Let's watch the rats run from the spotlight) I LOVE IT !!

with gratitude said...

But who exactly do we send our big "thank you" to for the big mess the entire state court system is in?

Anonymous said...

This is buffalo again! the names of the massive groups of nepotism folks are the same as many of our local politicians that have been around since i was a child and i am over 50. it also includes females and males that had sex with politicians and now their relatives have unmonitored and secured employment. yes, same-sex situations are a nasty twist to this story. The person who wrote and thinks he knows the courts are about money, i want to say, add sex and power and then get concerned. if our courts continue to corrupt, all taxpayers will suffer in many ways throughout their daily lives...the courts are inserted in almost everything we do, everyday! the more outraged the masses become the quicker we will succeed in dismantling what is there now...this can be done with those knowledgeable about the courts..which i am....and the support of the FBI, federal court and the media ! please stay aware and concerned about this issue!

supplier of info said...

Amen to you, previous commentor! Please do what I did. I emailed this blog some great stuff which they forwarded to the FBI integrity unit who is investigating.... I was interviewed there about one month ago. Email your stuff.... it doesn't always get posted on the blog, especialy if you don't want it to, or if you just want it to get to the right people (FBI)without giving your name. THE END OF THE WIDESPREAD CORRUPTION IS REALLY NEAR..... Watch out you rats, bums and thugs in the courts.

fed-up taxpayer said...

this is going on in all the courts in every corner of the state, who's kidding who.........this is the tip of the iceberg.

NYS to FBI: SOS....HELP !

Anonymous said...

I have watched the iceberg form in the courts for 30 yrs plus. fortunately for the taxpayer, i can connect many of the dots and have already spread the information and paperwork to multiple taxpayers, media, FBI and GOV. agencies. OCA has been on the watch list for awhile...just people gathering information and facts. you all should sit tight, but continue to inform if you can...the time for the actual entity addressed as the JUDICIAL SYSTEM, will soon be formed! watch your backs....OCA has participated in many illegal civil and criminal acts to prevent exposure...get yourself an excellent group of well-trained investigators with inside tracks!

Who can you thank for the present state of corruption...uhhh....'judge" judy kkkaye, "judge tri fi "can i"....
"trificanti, "judge jan, is he a man, plumadore et al...meaning their underlings as in lauren , no soul, desole, judy, rat girl, ratner and don't leave out their legal dept. ...they cue them on all the legal ins and outs to manipulate the system to screw the taxpayers and employees...for real! did you ever wonder why ny courts are so very, very private about who runs for judgeships, if they get to that point, why cameras were barred for so many years...don't want to see the ass of any court employee engaged in a sex act..which i have seen as stated,and also what hacks are in in $100,000 jobs with no education or court experience, but daddy or judgy are my family and lovers! so as i have seen it flourish, these are the ones responsible, that really set the true corruption in motion. if judy kaye stopped ratting her hair, you might be able to see the treachery in her empty head....she was a rich hack with connections and not much ability! so thank the above in writing...but don't sign your name..sign it with a politcian you hate!

this nothing less than organized crime.

I have been an attorney for
20 years and have tried for
the past 7 years to obtain a
job with the court system.

Having had no luck, not even
one interview, I started to
think the system was corrupt.

Thank you for confirming my worst fears about the NYS Courts.

the abuse in the court system is out of control. when is kaye forced to leave because she's too old? does she think she's done a good job? lol it'll take years to uncover the true extent of the damage she has reigned over, and all the criminal acts she's ignored. good work judy.

Anonymous said...

it's shocking how brazen some of these jackasses (corrupt judges) can be. see today's new york Post www.nypost.com look at the article: Dem's Ex defeats "abuse" by Divorce Judge by Janon Fisher.

Here, proudly, we had the CHIEF MATRIMONIAL JUDGE Jacqueline Silbermann (another slug)getting blasted by the appeals court because she (corrupt judge Silvermann) gave the husband everything (including the kids!) WITHOUT THE WIFE KNOWING SHE WAS BEING SUED FOR DIVORCE.

Note that this is the f***ing top NYC matrimonial judge Silbermann here doing the dirty work. SHE'S IN CHARGE and pulling this crap.

Another one whose fat ass should be yanked off the bench...

.judy Kaye is part of the criminal acts...just because she is old doesn't mean her money didn't afford her the power to use crime to continue the worst corruption you can imagine. yes it is organized crime and they have used subpoenas to view adversaries bank records, tapped their phone lines and attempted to run them off the highway! this is just a tiny bit of information on what has happened within the past two years. so, kaye will stay as long as she is not uncovered and all the less than mediocre legal minds employed by OCA, continue to think they can use the law against those that have knowledge! this is why we need lots of people to uprise and force the court to re-convert itself into a fair, honest and ethical gov. agency! it can and will happen..so stay positive and pass this along to everyone you know in any and all states...the contagious corruption will be coming to them in the near future!

Counselor..you will never get an interview with OCA! i have never known OCA to interview a non- political atty. OCA is afraid you will see what they are up to and report same to other atty's practicing in state courts and then..... EXPOSED!
this is how OCA hires for jobs. the administrator of non-judicial employees gives the hiring hack a list of about 5 really big hacks and they must choose one of them. they interview about 10 hacks total and the pick for the job is done long before the interviews. hacks are also allowed to apply days after the closing date used only for the unsuspecting public or non-hacks....amazing! this is done every time, all the time at least since kaye took over from the freak whackler. if that man wasn't so weird, his story would be hysterical. so if 100 people apply and 90 are very able, they will never see the interview process, ever! it was not you...they never looked at your application or abilities!
the civil service test is another corruption. i have seen mentally challenged people get high paying jobs stating they passed very difficult tests taken by thousands claiming they scored in the top 3! one lady failed a court clerk test ,but being married to a top divorce lawyer, she asked to review her test and ended up scoring 98 after that review!, and was hired. she works for OCA today with an upgrade, but since she divorced this atty. she has ended up being harassed daily. her job has been threatened by a supreme ct. judge and she sees a doctor for severe stress and anxiety.
so sir, getting hired at this judicial agency is impossible for anyone not a hack!

When you read all this and think about it all, this is the tip of the iceberg. You have to wonder what is really out there?

Nothing will change until Judith Kaye is removed from her seat as the top judge.

Anonymous said...

Maybe you should just write to judy kaye and call her "unfit and incompetent"....the words she likes to use against those, when she wants to destroy them. the tougher you are with 'bee-head" kaye the better...she deserves the wrath of all ny state taxpayers...now! drop this devil to her knees!

Why do you think downstate is where the corrupt judges are?? As an upstate native, graft is the rule and not the exception given the 'wired' nature of many upstate legal communities. Cases in point: Diane Fitzpatrick, wife of the DA in syracuse, appointed to the court of claims after a substantial gift to the local gop. Also, she dumped her DA husband and was smart enough to keep her mouth shut. Qualifications--bottom of her law school class and a stay at home mother. syracuse city court: a cesspool of patronage and corruption. Cases in point---attorneys regularly receive 18B assignments which they are unqualified for and routinely plead their clients out when many have valid defenses. Collections up there---serve your papers, then ten days later file them and receive a default judgment the same day. Note a defendant cannot answer the complaint when there is nothing on file. You think it is worse in NYC??!! NO WAY!!!!!!!!

John bonanno captain in family court eaten island , close with Dennis quirk , forced himself on a 22 year old girl named Vanessa cupo . He had sex against her will in the Baron Dekalb knights of Columbus , where he was working on the side. Police were called to the scene and the young lady was threatened and scared , told not to press charges, John Bonanno continues to work in Staten Island family court . He was married at the time and was divorced by his then wife . He had the divorce case placed into Staten Island , even though the couple resided in Brooklyn . This was a cover up so no one would find out. John Bonanno is a disturbed person and should not be able to carry a fire arm . It's all coveted up , but the 911 calls are all recorded . Vanessa is still living in a state of shock and has never returned to the happy young lady she was.

Vanessa said...

Court officer John a bonanno is still working as a captain in family court in Staten Island . This is a man that can not be trusted . During 9/11 he was stealing donated supplies from areas that were intended fr rescue workers . He was involved in a sex /rape at the Aron Dekalb with a young girl . Police were called and report was aken by victim . The victim was threatened to lose her city job and did not follow through with charges . Feel free to contact the president of the knights of Columbus Baron Dekalb to verify incident. John Bonanno is deranged and should not carry a firearm. He speaks so badly about ppl he works with referring to the president of the union as a greedy fat obese SOB and workers as weasels , he can not be trusted , he is a horrible person and back stabber . Don't take my word for it just watch him Closely .. Anything he does he makes sure everyone knows about it, of course not the bad stuff . Please watch your back .
