There were emails between risk manager for Los Angeles Superior Court Catheryn Glenn, Court Counsel Brett Bianco and Judicial Council Attorney Eric Schnurpfeil left in a case file for a “double sequestered” family law case. The emails were incriminating, in that they admitted a lack of attention or investigation to the allegations of file tampering.
When the emails were brought to the attention of the aforementioned people, they disappeared from the file once again.
Who left these emails in the file? Was it Cathy Glenn? Her email was the most forthright and least incriminating. Perhaps she does not want to lose her job, but she does not want to go to prison for being a part of a conspiracy to deny constitutional rights to a litigant. Ms. Glenn did not return phone calls in regards to the emails.
Was it Judicial Coucil Attorney Eric Schnurpfeil? The same questions could be asked of him as of Cathy Glenn. He also neglected to respond to email and telephone inquiries regarding the disclosures.
Was it Brett Bianco? His emails were the most incriminating. He said he discussed the case with Judge Elizabeth Feffer. He made unfounded, libelous comments about a litigant. Still, it is possible he has cut a deal with the authorities, the FBI or the JSID, and he is snitching on the other conspirators. Mr. Bianco’s response to questions about the possibly libelous statement was “file a lawsuit.” (He also said the taxpayers should foot the bill to defend court personnel who are sued personally for actions taken off the clock.)
There is a chance the emails were obtained legally by the aforementioned law enforcement agencies and they wanted to stir the pot a bit. It seems that once one player knows the others are folding, or that there is intelligence surrounding the case, the weak links start blabbing all they know. We have all seen this scenario on T.V. a hundred times. The king-pins may tell all the little guys “don’t worry, they know nothing”, but the little guys start wondering if it is worth going to prison to continue the cover-up.
If the emails were obtained legally by the FBI, for instance, how many other incriminating emails and phone calls have they been privy to?
Tips can be sent to [email protected] or call the FBI (310) 477-6565. Mention Judge Elizabeth Feffer or Commissioner Friedenthal, even if they are not involved in your case. When the FBI makes a bust, they usually have dozens of suspects indicted at once. I know the FBI is interested in Feffer and Friedenthal, because they took the time to send a couple special agents to my home to inquire.
