RE: Formal Complaint Against New York State Employees Involving 
Constitutional Violations, including widespread illegal wiretapping

Dear Mr. Moossy,

In researching and reporting on various acts of corruption in and about the New York State Court System, specific reviewed evidence supports allegations that over a ten-year-plus period of time, certain NYS employees participated in the widespread practice of illegal wiretapping, inter alia.  As these individuals were in supervisory positions at “ethics oversight” committees, the illegal wiretapping largely concerned attorneys and judges, but their actions also targeted other individuals who had some type of dealings with those judicial and attorney “ethics” committees.

The NY state-employed individuals herein complained of include New York State admitted attorneys Thomas Joseph Cahill, Alan Wayne Friedberg, Sherry Kruger Cohen, David Spokony and Naomi Freyda Goldstein.

At some point in time shortly after 9/11, and by methods not addressed here, these individuals improperly utilized access to, and devices of, the lawful operations of the Joint Terrorism Task Force (the “JTTF”).  These individuals completely violated the provisions of FISA, ECPA and the Patriot Act for their own personal and political agendas.  Specifically, these NY state employees essentially commenced “black bag operations,” including illegal wiretapping, against whomever they chose- and without legitimate or lawful purpose.

To be clear, any lawful act involving the important work of the JTTF is to be applauded.  The herein complaint simply addresses the unlawful access- and use- of JTTF related operations for the personal and political whims of those who improperly acted under the color of law.  Indeed, illegally utilizing JTTF resources is not only illegal, it is a complete insult to those involved in such important work. 

In fact, hard-working and good-intentioned prosecutors and investigators (federal and state) are also victims here, as they were guided and primed with knowingly false information.

Operations involving lawful activity- and especially as part of the important work of the JTTF and related agencies- are not at issue here. This complaint concerns the illegal use and abuse of such lawful operations for personal and political gain, and all such activity while acting under the color of law.  This un-checked access to highly-skilled operatives found undeserving protection for some connected wrong-doers, and the complete destruction of others- on a whim, including the pre-prosecution priming of falsehoods (“set-ups”).  The aftermath of such abuse for such an extended period of time is staggering.

It is believed that most of the 1.5 million-plus items in evidence now under seal in Federal District Court for the Eastern District of New York, case #09cr405 (EDNY) supports the fact, over a ten-year-plus period of time, of the illegal wiretapping of New York State judges, attorneys, and related targets, as directed by state employees. 

To be sure, the defendant in #09cr405, Frederick Celani, is a felon who is now regarded by many as a conman. Notwithstanding the individual (Celani), the evidence is clear that Celani once supervised lawful  “black bag operations,” and, further, that certain NYS employees illegally utilized access to such operations for their own illegal purposes.  (Simple reference is made to another felon, the respected former Chief Judge of the New York State Court of Appeals, Sol Wachtler, who many believe was victimized by political pre-priming prosecution.)

In early February, 2013, I personally reviewed, by appropriate FOIL request to a NYS Court Administrative Agency, over 1000 documents related to the herein complaint.   Those documents, and other evidence, fully support Celani’s claim of his once-lawful supervisory role in such JTTF operations, and his extended involvement with those herein named.  (The names of specific targeted judges and attorneys are available.)

One sworn affidavit, by an attorney, confirms the various illegal activity of Manhattan’s attorney “ethics” committee, the Departmental Disciplinary Committee (the “DDC”), which includes allowing cover law firm operations to engage in the practice of law without a law license.  Specifically, evidence (attorney affidavits, etc.) supports the claim that Naomi Goldstein, and other DDC employees supervised the protection of the unlicensed practice of law.  The evidence also shows that Ms. Goldstein knowingly permitted the unlicensed practice of law, over a five-year-plus period of time, for the purpose of gaining access to, and information from, hundreds of litigants. 

Evidence also supports the widespread illegal use of “black bag operations” by the NYS employees for a wide-range of objectives: to target or protect a certain judge or attorney, to set-up anyone who had been deemed to be a target, or to simply achieve a certain goal. The illegal activity is believed to not only have involved attorneys and judges throughout all of the New York State, including all 4 court-designated ethics “departments,” but also in matters beyond the borders of New York.

Other evidence points to varying and widespread illegal activity, and knowledge of such activity, by these and other NYS employees-  all of startling proportions. For example:

- The “set-up” of numerous individuals for an alleged plot to bomb a Riverdale, NY Synagogue. These individuals are currently incarcerated.  The trial judge, U.S. District Court Judge Colleen McMahon, who publicly expressed concerns over the case, saying, “I have never heard anything like the facts of this case. I don’t think any other judge has ever heard anything like the facts of this case.” (2nd Circuit 11cr2763)

- The concerted effort to fix numerous cases where confirmed associates of organized crime had made physical threats upon litigants and/or witnesses, and/or had financial interests in the outcome of certain court cases.  

- The judicial and attorney protection/operations, to gain control, of the $250 million-plus Thomas Carvel estate matters, and the pre-prosecution priming of the 
$150 million-plus Brooke Astor estate. 

- The thwarting of new evidence involving a mid 1990‘s “set-up” of an individual, who spent over 4 years in prison because he would not remain silent about evidence he had involving financial irregularities and child molestation by a CEO of a prominent Westchester, NY non-profit organization. (Hon. John F. Keenan)

- The wire-tapping and ISP capture, etc., of DDC attorney, Christine C. Anderson, who had filed a lawsuit after being assaulted by a supervisor, Sherry Cohen, and after complaining that certain evidence in ethics case files had been improperly destroyed. (See SDNY case #07cv9599 - Hon. Shira A. Scheindlin, U.S.D.J.)

- The eToys litigation and bankruptcy, and associates of Marc Dreir, involving over $500 million and the protection by the DDC of certain attorneys, one who was found to have lied to a federal judge over 15 times.

- The “set-up” and “chilling” of effective legal counsel of a disabled woman by a powerful CEO and his law firms, resulting in her having no contact with her children for over 6 years. 

- The wrongful detention for 4 years, prompted by influential NY law firms, of an early whistleblower of the massive Wall Street financial irregularities involving Bear Sterns and where protected attorney-client conversations were recorded and distributed. 

-  The blocking of attorney accountability in the $1.25 billion Swiss Bank Holocaust Survivor settlement where one involved NY admitted attorney was ultimately disbarred- in New Jersey. Only then, and after 10 years, did the DDC follow with disbarment. (Gizella Weisshaus v. Fagan)

Additional information will be posted on

The allegations of widespread wiretapping by New York’s so-called “ethics” committees were relayed to New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo on February 15, 2013, and to the DDC Chairman Mr. Roy R. L. Reardon, Esq., who confirmed, on March 27, 2013, his knowledge of the allegations. (Previously, on March 25, 2013, I had written to DDC Deputy Chief Counsel Naomi Goldstein, copying Mr. Reardon, of my hope that she would simply tell the truth about the improper activity, inter alia.) 

New York judges and lawyers, and obviously the public, deserve immediate action to address the widespread corruption in and about New York’s so-called “ethics” oversight entities. 

Please take immediate action regarding this troubling issue, and so as to continue the DOJ’s efforts to help all New Yorkers restore their faith in their government.

Of course wiretapping etc was offered for use in a litigation case against OCA in upstate NY.
The solicitor of the upstate wiretap provider was a female supervisor in a lower ct and an executor director of the district with the consent and knowledge of the Administrative Judge and other female supervisors and NYC Administrative authorization staff.
The names are known and the conversations about the setup were heard.
So Judges and litigators throughout NY State should be aware thatg they too have been tapped and taped, among other IP hacking.
OCA's counsel's office is a participant and should be investigated heavily.
The problem is extensive and the crimes numerous...people should know this is the truth and has been obstructed from exposure!

This is a very good start with some specific allegations but it is way overdue and overdue means justice denied to those impacted.

That is why, rightfully so, many people are "more than upset" with the Blog and Blog owner for some time now.

QUERY: IF the US Attorney knows all of this, Where is the Federal Monitor that people were promised for years?

Good that you finally mentioned organized crime.

But this Blog and Blog owner was giving a Path to connect DiTomasso to the political heart of Albany.

The same DiTomasso of Interstate Industrial who just got "let off the hook" in the Bronx with No Jail time despite being tied to Organized Crime from New Jersey in the Bernard Kerik case, off the hook for Perjurng himself about paying off and givng value to Kerik, no jail time. See today's NY Post.

What does that say about what is Really going on with the NY Courts and Fed system in NY?

People who have likely Risked their lives coming forward and giving information to you and this blog who get promises of Federal Agents that never show up and No Accountability for where the Information went.

And where is the Iviewit case for Lord's sake ( or whatever spiritual or religious entity is equally important ).

That is only Attempted Murder covered up for how long?

And all we get all these years later are Feds likely bumbling on the Bruno case, Boyd Johnson and Michael Garcia sailing off to the Cushy Wall Street world, and a "big bust" on Senator Smith and some County lackeys for a 100,000 bribe where Iviewit is in the Billions to Trillion and Attempted Murder.

I mean really, good start but where are the others in the DOJ doing anything here?

Where is the Federal monitor?

And why the hidden conflicts over the years while lives remain destroyed.

Sure, herculean efforts but this was never supposed to be a "one man" or "one person" show.

6 years ago you reported that DC was sending more Agents to NY for Iviewit alone.

Where are they?

Great start but still a lot of explaining to do to catch up on credibility and trust with many.

But good start finally and some details finally.

But don't cry when people get disgusted, been a very long time.

And what is the Definition of a "lawful" "black bag" operation?

Isn't "black bag" unlawful by its terms when used in that context?

Sort of got confusing there.

How many more DOJ types have to get notified before NY sees some Results? And what about NY Kids for Cash?

word correction:

"blog owner was" "given" ( as in provided ) , Not "giving".

But good to see Carvel back in action and Anderson.

And by implication Gizella.

What about Suzanne Mc Cormick and so many others?

Isn't enough is enough here?

Do we have a Federal Govt?

Yes I was obviously very concerned about that too Eliot.

I mean, after all, a Car Bomb is a Car Bomb right?

Geez Louise! ( oh, that is funny for a lot of reasons, the phrase that is and ) .

After all i thought that your situation and Iviewit was a primary driving force of any action with the DDCs, First and Second Dept, Cahill and crew.

So I didn't forget.

How many years has it been? Petition to the White House went in Feb. 2009.

How many lives trampled, loved ones lost does it take?

Eliot it is interesting as he made reference to Margarita Walters case and glad he did but a few years back when trying to get his attention then for Margarita it was nowhere to be found.

So very odd that yours is not mentioned anywhere. A Car Bomb is a Car Bomb after all and Related case to Anderson would seem to be important.

But maybe this is just a draft or prelim letter that obviously needs some editing and additions

What about all the related cases to Christine Anderson that Shira threw out with the bath water? Wonder if all of them were subjected to illegal wires? If these 'public employees' were engaging in acts mentioned who was watching them? Big Brother is watching and Little Brother is listening!!!

This is one of the most difficult stories I may ever have to write. The children involved are about to trade their privacy for protection. It is about the failure of a handful of individuals to protect two small children from the alleged sexual, physical, verbal and emotional abuse at the hands of their politically connected father.

These are the words on little slips of paper, the girl holds up one at a time in the video:

I'm 13 years old
I love to dance
I have a little brother
He is ten
We need help
We have been hurt
my brother got a bloody nose
We both have gotten our arms (hurt) too
I got a black and blue
and my brother got a
sexually transmitted disease on his butt
I wish Faith Herman CPS worker Lisa Towns
Nancy? Other Cps workers
lots of other CPS workers
& I don't remember names
Thanks to them my dad
Who was the cause of all this
has full custody
I want to go back to my moms
Who did nothing wrong and
she is safe
my attorney-Joy Jorgenson
she wouldn't help us at all
she wouldn't even call my brother in to talk about his
bloody nose and he was in the waiting room

Here's a hint. (today's NY Post)

"Stern [Moses “Mark”] routinely gets close to pols to demonstrate status in the class-conscious world of New York’s Hasidic communities, sources said.

“He used to target every politician. They all knew him. When [Eric] Schneiderman was running for AG in that primary, Stern took him all around Monsey and Spring Valley,” said the source."

It should be made clear to the entire state of NY and those dealing in their Judicial Systems, that any litigant against OCA in the past 10 years has been wiretapped and hacked etc.
All people whose lives were affected need to know this is not just about Judges and Lawyers
Innocent NY-American Citizens have been victimized by a Judicial System that feels it could invade all means of a Democratic society's personal privacy, with total disregard and criminality that could go unpunished forever with knowledge of the Federal Government and all their..yes all their entities!
How did this happen,how was it allowed to destroy lives for so long...when the FBI ,DOJ etc have known most of the 10 yrs this has operated!
My questions are with the Federal Gov did you let this go on and possibly still take place.
I want answers from our alleged Democratic National Government..and also...the 3rd World American Media!

Ironically the only and last major politician to put any focus on the Courts was Spitzer circa 2007 or so in both Times Union and NY Times calling the "last bastion" or stronghold of patronage and at least talking about dismantling the CJC.

Well we know what happened next.

But at least he "talked" about it as Governor.

Not a Single Gov or major Pol has even mentioned this in the 6 years or so since but yea, keep on waiting.

also spitzer reminded everyone that he and the other 50 state governors wrote to bush and warned of the housing/banking scams and scandals. (ie M.E.R.S.) then boom hookers!

while maybe "allegedly" doing a lot of background work, the Feds have been non-existent in the Courts of Corruption and systemic oca corruption and the FBI in many areas of the state have been given ample info but nothing so the statement above about a Fed Court Judge finally doing something about this is like, yea right, believe that one when we see it. what's that? another 20 yrs from now?

One of the prominently stated purposes of this blog after first posting links at the Times Union was allegedly to address problems with FBI and US Attorney.

where is the action?

Anonymous said...

The comment about the Federal Judge was sarcasm..can't you was the FBI's stupid advice so they would appear not responsible for investigating Judicial Corruption..and as stupid as asking a Judge to do work as a Detective...couldn't stop laughing when the FBI even mouthed it..was asking a Judge to do work outside of the job they barely do in the first place.
The Feds have no interest in Judicial corruption and Cuomo is even more he is into corruption as much as everyone else.....Cuomo is not a positive for NY never be Pres?

According to Preet Bharara:

"... U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, told the Citizens Crime Commission, "No single fix will get us far down the road to reform and nothing will really change until people undertake a fundamental reform of a corrupt culture."

Which seems particularly amusing because neither he nor his office seems to be doing anything when given specific information about corruption in other parts of the government of NYS.

Anyone ever contact this "Citizens Crime Commission"?

It is well documented that the New York FBI works closely with Brooklyn New York Child Protective Services ("CPS") or ("ACS") headed up by Marie Vilus to silence complaints about child abuse, child neglect, child pornography, child exploitation, and child victimization because the United Nations is in New York City, and all those foreign diplomats need Child Prostitutes when they are visiting the United States.

And where do these children victims come from?

From poor low income disadvantaged socioeconomically Brooklyn New York, where it is perceived by the NY FBI and Brooklyn NY CPS and ACS that no one will complain or miss the kids that are lost within this system when they are turned over for beatings, rapings, molestings, force drug use, murders, child pornography, child abuse, and other horrible crimes against children.

Hillary Clinton of the US State Department openly allows this because she is "doing her part" to make "foreign relations" strong and robust.
