- I am of legal age and competent. This affidavit is made on my personal knowledge of all matters set forth and referenced herein. If sworn and called as a witness in this case, I could, and I would, testify competently as to each fact set forth and incorporated herein by reference.
- The June 19, 2006 national press release of the organization, Illinois Family Court Accountability Advocates (IFCAA), of which I am a member and have accepted a position on the board, resulted in a significant response. With the help of hired professionals and multiple courageous individuals and organizations within Illinois and across the country from New York to California, I have discovered and released to multiple entities the bank accounts, real estate holdings, trust accounts, and fake real estate deeds of multiple allegedly corrupt judges and attorneys involved in IFCAA members’ cases.
- I am of information and belief that the Operation Greylord investigation and convictions only touched a percentage of the total number of allegedly corrupt state and federal court agents in Chicago. Evidence indicates that an alleged organized criminal enterprise has evolved with judges and other state and federal court agents in partnership with the “X” Family of Phoenix, Arizona which is now dominating ongoing judicial bribery rackets in Illinois.
- I am of information and belief that the Arizona family founded by “X,” who was originally from another area of the country, relocated to Arizona to allegedly expand the criminal rackets within that state. For many years, the mafia held to their traditional lines of business. This generation of the “X” Family is referred to as the “Old Guard.” (“OG”)
- I am of information and belief that, subsequently, the sons of “X,” specifically, “X” and “X,” allegedly moved into traditional white collar crimes involving government monies and government officials including but not limited to judges. Evidence currently validates that fixing cases for large corporations was a far more lucrative enterprise and relatively unopposed and safe as compared to the traditional illicit “sin” rackets, e.g., prostitution, gambling, et al.
- I am of information and belief that the “X” Sons allegedly developed a thriving business of buying off attorneys, judges, and other state and federal court agents to fix cases. However, this new enterprise created a unique problem. It created large amount of monies that had to be hidden from the federal agents and the IRS in new and ingenious ways.
- I am of information and belief that to solve said problem, the family allegedly expanded and non-traditional, non-Italians became partners with the Arizona-based “X” Family. Allegedly seven individuals with expertise in the areas now needed by the “X” Family, e.g., expertise in the law, real estate, and traditional financial vehicles, joined the “X” Family business. This next generation criminal spin-off was born and named the East Valley Group. (“EG”) It is allegedly composed of the following individuals:
- I am of information and belief that the “X” Family allegedly hacked into the INSLAW software program and utilized its capabilities to wash private and government funds illegally accessed and obtained via the court system through traditional financial vehicles involving real estate properties across the country. This is allegedly accomplished primarily though the systematic code-based creation of fraudulent documents and identity theft.
- I am of information and belief that my fellow American, Dr. Sheila Mannix, has created a detailed summary supported with material evidence of the component of the organized criminal enterprise that has infiltrated family courts and child protective services across the country. Alleged criminal acts have resulted in alleged fraud against the U.S. Government through gross misappropriation of government funds for personal financial gain. Said binder of information has been distributed to multiple individuals including but not limited to civil and criminal authorities, including a connection to the Senate Judiciary Committee, and media contacts.
- I am of information and belief that alleged criminal judges and other players from the various state and federal courts co-mingle and funnel their illicit monies through two main Pure Trusts [Omega and Anchor], and then, ultimately, into personal individual Pure Trusts.
- With regard to my cases, I am of information and belief that the Chief Bankruptcy Judge of the Northern District of Illinois, Eugene R. Wedoff, allegedly joined the Arizona-based “X” Family in 1981 after he left the law firm of Jenner & Block. Over the years, Albert Jenner has represented many members of organized crime. Previously, John B. Swartz was Chief Bankruptcy Judge for the Northern District of Illinois. At the same time he held that position, he sat on the Board of the Bank of Cicero. Then, during the Clinton Administration, Judge Sonderby was appointed Chief Judge. However, in 1986, in a forced ouster lead by Judge Marvin Aspen, Judge Wedoff was appointed Chief Judge.
- I am of information and belief that in August 2001, my company, McCook Metals, was forced into bankruptcy by General Electric and my law firm, Seyfarth Shaw. After suing Seyfarth Shaw in May 2002, I discovered evidence that my law firm was allegedly paid handsomely by Alcoa via the “X” Family to conspire with Alcoa and General Electric to force McCook Metals into bankruptcy and wrest control of the company from me. Said alleged criminal acts have resulted in alleged fraud against the U.S. Government.
- I am of information and belief that in December 2004, I sat through five days of trial in the Seyfarth Shaw malpractice case during which witness testimony and evidence confirm the alleged malpractice and conspiracy claims against Seyfarth Shaw, GE and Alcoa.
- I am of information and belief that in August 2005, in the McCook Bankruptcy Case, Judge Wedoff issued a Memorandum of Opinion which he did not write. I am of information and belief that Seyfarth Shaw’s attorneys at Miller, Shakman & Beem along with the members of the “X” Family allegedly wrote the opinion and e-mailed it to Judge Wedoff for his signature.
- I am of information and belief that Judge Robert Gettlemen was removed from my litigation against Seyfarth Shaw by the Chief Judge Charles Kokoras and was replaced by Judge Mark Filip, an alleged member of organized crime.
- The ruling from Judge Wedoff’s bankruptcy court combined with the Judge Filip ruling in my malpractice case dramatically diminished my faith in the U.S. judicial system. Prior, my belief in the system was well-grounded given the fact that in 1999, as Chairman of McCook Metals, I sued Alcoa for anti-trust and won. In June 2005, I confronted my attorneys, Gene Murphy, Roy Brandys, Tom Cronin, Robert Crummins and Michael Duffy specifically about the probability of judicial corruption in Illinois being the cause of the unlawful rulings of Judges Wedoff and Filip. My attorneys acknowledged that there was corruption and, moreover, that it was systemic. However, they acknowledged that they thought that the Seyfarth Shaw case would settle due to the overwhelming amount of evidence and testimony against the firm.
- I requested that Gene Murphy, a former Assistant State’s Attorney, and Robert Cummins, former Board Member of the Judicial Inquiry Board, to go to the US Attorney’s office to report the judicial corruption. They refused to do so and resigned from representation of me.
- I am of information and belief that the gross judicial misconduct of federal trial court Judge James B. Zagel outlined in my “Verified Motion to Vacate the Orders of the Honorable James B. Zagel Entered on July 25, 2006 & August 2, 2006 Concerning the Defendant, Cummins & Cronin, LLC, and Other Relief” entered in Case No. 1:06-cv-03751 highlights the alleged illicit relationships between bench and bar. Judge Zagel recused himself on August 7, 2006. The August 2, 2006 order granted the Motion to Dismiss by my former law firm, Cummins & Cronin, with prejudice and met the level of fraud upon the Court as the order stated that a motions hearing had taken place which was an abject falsehood. The matter had been removed from the motions call on said day.
- In early 2006, I hired an expert in federal fraud to investigate the McCook Bankruptcy records and the expert found some stunning alleged facts including but not limited to the following:
- I am of information and belief that Judge Wedoff (and other judges) allegedly use LaSalle Bank in Chicago and Wells Fargo and Northern Trust Bank in Arizona to hold and process their alleged illicit monies. A family member of the “X” Family is allegedly employed by LaSalle Bank. Money is allegedly wired or deposited into LaSalle Bank and then allegedly washed into real estate and Pure Trusts in Arizona. Wells Fargo Bank is allegedly the depositary bank in Arizona. Allegedly fraudulent corporations and individuals open bank accounts and the illicit monies are allegedly deposited into these bank accounts. The alleged illicit monies are then allegedly laundered through real estate as mortgages that really never exist. All the real estate having been allegedly bought with cash via the alleged bribery funds. The alleged illicit money is then further washed from the fake mortgage proceeds into an alleged illicit Pure Trust. Those alleged illicit monies from the alleged illicit Pure Trust are allegedly used by the corrupt judges, attorneys, other court agents, or the mafia. Allegedly through the illicit use of the INSLAW software, these records conveniently disappear. Allegedly no taxes are ever paid.
- I am of information and belief that in my McCook Metals’ Bankruptcy Case, the $40 million “Wedoff Bribery Fund” sits at LaSalle Bank in an account whose number I have turned over to multiple entities.
- I am of information and belief that these funds will be dispersed only after the “Lynch Group” opposition has been suppressed and the case is closed. The “Lynch Group” is the name that has allegedly been given to the courageous Americans who have taken on the apparent infiltration of organized crime in the U.S judiciary.
- I am of information and belief that the EG is very active in Judge Wedoff’s bankruptcy courtroom and allegedly engaged in allegedly illegal acts with Judge Wedoff in the United Airlines bankruptcy case at great cost to the American people.
- I am of information and belief that Lieutenant “A” and Alcoa attorneys, John Wilson and Russ Porter, write and edit Chief Bankruptcy Judge Wedoff rulings including but not limited to the Memorandum of Opinions in my personal bankruptcy case and the bankruptcy cases of my companies, Longview Aluminum and McCook Metals.
- I am of information and belief that Lieutenant “B” has access to the Federal Court Building via false Federal Marshall credentials.
- I am of information and belief that US Trustees Joseph Baldi , David Leibowitz and Gus Palioan are allegedly active partners with the EG and Judge Wedoff.
- I am of information and belief that Chief Bankruptcy Judge Wedoff allegedly hides his bribery monies in Pure Trust called ERW and uses the alias of John Williams, as his own trustee.
- I am of information and belief that Chief Bankruptcy Judge Wedoff also is a participant with other judges in Pure Trusts called Anchor and Omega Holdings.
- I am of information and belief that multiple lawyers of prominent law firms are allegedly members with multiple judges in the Arizona-based organized crime enterprise.
- I am of information and belief that organized crime has allegedly infiltrated not only the U.S. judiciary but has also allegedly infiltrated federal criminal investigation and prosecution agencies. I have disseminated evidence regarding the identities of these individuals.
- I have attached to this affidavit a smattering of material evidence which support my factual allegations herein.
- I am of information and belief that the following individuals are allegedly engaged in criminal acts in concert with an alleged organized crime enterprise:
