Dr. Richard Cordero, Esq.
59 Crescent Street, Brooklyn, NY 11208
Dr. Richard Cordero holds a Ph.D. in law from the University of Cambridge in England, where his doctoral thesis dealt with the legal and technical aspects of creating a European banking system. He also holds a law degree from La Sorbonne in Paris, where he concentrated on monetary regulation and financial integration in the European Union. Likewise, he earned a Master of Business Administration from the University of Michigan, where he emphasized the study of the new technologies of telecommunications and the use of computer networks. He worked researching and writing analytical annotations on federal business regulatory law as a member of the editorial staff of Lawyers Cooperative Publishing. Dr. Cordero is a member of the bar of the State of New York. For the past 5 years he has been involved in 11 federal bankruptcy cases, which he has appealed from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, WBNY, to the U.S. District Court, WDNY, to the Court of Appeals, CA2, and to the Supreme Court of the United States.
In keeping with his academic and professional experience as a researcher-writer, his statements in Judicial-Discipline-Reform.org, in general, and his call for a class action against federal judges engaged in coordinated wrongdoing, in particular, are based on the solid evidence found in publicly available documents filed in those courts as well as in official statistics, letters exchanged with federal officers, and judges’ speeches in addition to their decisions. He has collected and posted all these supporting documents on the website. Each of them has been summarized in a descriptive paragraph and all the paragraphs have been organized thematically and chronologically in 3 main lettered sets (C; A; D>Add>Pst) that correspond to the 11 cases.
So described and organized those documents are the subject matter of the PDF downloadable Tables of Exhibits for his fundamental claim, namely, that the judges have shown bias and disregard for the rule of law in order to support or tolerate a bankruptcy fraud scheme, and that they have both made it possible and been encouraged to engage in such wrongdoing by ensuring for themselves immunity through the systematic dismissal of complaints against their conduct, which shows coordination as a self-reinforcing cause and effect of their wrongdoing. This claim is discussed in his Statement of Facts, which he supports with numerous references to the documents posted on the website and listed in the Tables of Exhibits. The latter can be accessed through the hyperlinks on the posted versions of the Tables of Exhibits and Statement of Facts.
That Statement provides the foundation for Dr. Cordero’s strategy to expose and prevent the judges’ coordinated wrongdoing. It is presented in his Programmatic Proposal, which calls on the many entities and individuals that complain on the Internet, talk shows, and e-mails about the judges’ abuse of power and bias, to unite in order to use their resources effectively in the common mission to restore integrity to our legal system. The Proposal puts forth three concrete objectives achievable through specific activities:
1) to create a virtual firm on the Internet of investigative journalists and lawyers to
2) make the public aware of how and why judges abuse their rights by exposing evidence of their wrongdoing through a media campaign and a class action against wrongdoing judges aimed at gaining the public’s support to
3) force executive and legislative authorities to launch official investi-gations into coordinated wrongdoing in the judicial branch leading to public demand for, and passage of, reform legislation that creates an external body for administering judicial discipline and inspecting the judges’ use of public funds.
Through this program of activities the entities and individuals can embark on a common mission to deal effectively with the cause of their complaints: the judges’ unlawful, intentional failure to discharge their self-discipline duty, which enables them to eliminate punishment as a deterrent to wrongdoing and to engage in coordinated wrongdoing that leads to abuse and corruption in our legal system.
