22 bankers boxes
Five year divorce and counting (2007-2013?). 7 year span calendar.
Community property value: $3.5 mil
Now in bankruptcy
Spent approximately $1.5 mil on lawyer fees, court fees,
transcripts fees, appeals, psychologists, CPAs, corporate lawyer, minors
counsel, business evaluators, traveling cost over 87 times to faraway
courts for hearings, trials, family mediation, paper filings, research
fees, and more none of them providing any results after 5 plus years!
Each banker's box = $55,000 up in smoke. A double tax opportunity by the
US Treasury. Same money taxed twice!

A small portion of this man's story is posted below:
The Ellsworth-Dugan-Snell Divorce Court cover up. My story.
This story is about the triumvirate or "tag team," of two judges
(Sherrill Ellsworth and Becky Dugan) and one lowly Commissioner, employees of
the Divorce Court (renamed Family Court), a lower court in Riverside County also
known as "Superior" court. In the mix is a less than savory and greedy
opposing attorney, Tim Pittullo, already known for his disingenuous manipulation
of the courts ("Without Honor" by Ray Heninger) and of the laws, who
oftentimes cites contradictory points and authorities depending on which case he
It is about me the DL or "Designated Loser", whose case was handled by
13 judges in 5 years (Wagner, Codrington, Mandio, Ellsworth, Bermudez, one pro
tem, Dugan, Snell, Monterosso, Snell, Lucky, Warren, to be named). I was
so-named (sub rosa if course) only after having received very fair judicial
attention from two prior good judges Carol Codrington and Mark Mandio, was
thrust in mid-proceedings into the hands of a judge known as the "hanging
judge" Sherrill Ellsworth, who according to the Press Enterprise sentenced
a black man to 1,330 years in jail for molesting a 4 year old. How much more for
rape? Rather typical of her sentences. Rotated into divorce court from criminal
Ellsworth with prodding and communications from opposing attorney she was
incapable of making the distinction between criminal males and Fathers in the
process of a painful divorce. She was clearly ill-disposed in my case and
ill-suited. This lack of legal specialization generally unknown in progressive
and larger counties only hurts the balanced execution of justice as no one can
be an expert in the field of Family Law without knowing tax, corporate, labor
and constitutional laws, altogether a lacunae with most lawyers even those who
are certified in so-called family law. There is no schooling to become a
judge unlike more progressive countries like Germany. The rotation between
various court types makes the facilitation of manning the overriding focus
rather than the learned application of the law.
Each if these judicial officers selected by the powers that be for their
propensity to bias a case in order to please in the hope of advancement
(Ellsworth and Snell) thus passed the baton to compliant colleagues as they were
exposed for their biased rulings - in a case that has begun to attract attention
in higher courts and the internet - exposing what is seen by this litigant, and
others in the know, as a corruption of justice. When I finally recused Commissioner
Snell on Sep 27, 2012, after much chamber consulting with his superiors Snell
dropped out properly letting his legal department of lawyers decide what to do
and whom to assign in my case. Will the tainted baton be passed to finish the cover-up? No one yet knows. To date there are orders pending for months that have
not been sent. In two prior instances the court clerks signed they had sent the
Statements of Decision to my address when they hadn't. This court collusion with
malfeasant actions was to preclude my lawyer (Summers) and myself later in pro
per to receive notice and prevent us from appealing. Their next move was to
sanction me for dating to file an ex parte notice to protect my children and then
to have me declared vexatious an action to completely muzzle a self-represented
I cannot but help being reminded of the similarity of my legal case with the US
Army cover-up in the case of the fratricidal death of Pat Tillman, the Ranger
volunteer in Afghanistan and former NFL player great.
To quote Jon Krakauer, the respected liberal journalist in his investigative
book "Where Men Win Glory" the Army brass in a collusive action forced
their junior officers to lie about the truth of Pat's "death by friendly
fire," an appellation that could euphemistically be applied to my divorce
court who should have been friendly and not delivering "fire."
While the parallel of our stories which may seem to many to be a
dramatized and unworthy comparison somewhat grandiloquently contrived in that
Pat and I led very different lives, with his receiving a great deal of attention
given his NFL fame and his walking away from a $9.6 million contract to enlist
in the Rangers, the process of deception by the ruling organizations is too
eerily similar to miss.
In page 358, Colonel Nixon who eventually reported on Pat's death as a
fratricidal engagement said:
"and it took a considerable time to get the truth" out of the higher
Krakauer opined that "all of these officers continued to read from the same
patently disingenuous script, reciting a series of self-serving rationalizations
intended to justify what was actually a very calculated effort to deceive not
just the Tillman family, but also the American public - which of course was the
real target of the misinformation campaign."
Somehow, I find a parallel between my Divorce court and Pat Tillman's Rangers of
the US Army, two branches of an American government, fully funded by tax payers,
who see it as their overriding duty to, after having given destructive orders
that resulted in his death by friendly fire, to cover-up the resulting
consequences when an affected individual starts to spill the truth.
As with the US Rangers in the Tillman death cover-up they have tried to muzzle me
by punishing me further and threaten with with far more nefarious consequences
and then when realizing their misdeeds might be getting the attention of the
American public then react by closing ranks by trying to concoct with their
respective legal departments a course of action to do damage control as to what
happened. In court they simply dismissively say this is just "loser's sour
grapes" as Dugan said even before the case is even concluded.
