Judicial Activism Goes Insane in Texas

No case in recent judicial history resembles more of a Stalinist show trial. The conduct appears to be more corruption than merely judicial activism and the litany of outrages occurring are almost beyond belief. If there is no intervention now, a precedent will be set with truly ominous implications for all Americans.

Yes my friends, even in Texas the liberal left is killing this country

This ruling in Texas is totally nuts. This is the reason that the court system was set up so the judges ruled on the law, not make law from the benches. That is what this activist judge did.

In a civil lawsuit that is pending in a Texas Federal Court, a constitutional nightmare is happening, that could have really scary consequences for all Americans.

In violation of the Constitution, this activist federal judge has made a U.S. business owner essentially a slave without any due process or hearing. And of course, you won’t hear of this in the media.

No case in recent judicial history more resembles a Stalinist\ trial. The conduct appears to be more corruption than merely judicial activism and the litany of outrages occurring are almost beyond belief. If there is no intervention now, a precedent will be set with truly ominous implications for all Americans.

From the article was this:

The case involves an Internet pioneer named Jeff Baron. In the early days of the Internet, one could register a domain name and monetize it to earn a few cents every time someone called it up with a search engine. Jeff designed an automated software to quickly register these domain names. However, in doing so. his company was responsible for the annual fee to re-register each name.

Jeff was doing quite well when he took on an ostensibly promising new partner who claimed quite convincingly to be developing a search engine to outmatch all others. What the partner didn’t mention was his history of indictments for fraud and theft. Jeff knew none of this, and companies were established to legally protect the assets of the stakeholders. However, it wasn’t long before money under the partner’s control, unawares to Jeff, started disappearing. And then the partner made an audacious move: he suddenly claimed ownership of the names Jeff had registered and paid for with his own money years prior.

Jeff now had to try to regain control of his company and fend off his duplicitous partner. Attorneys, quite naturally, were engaged-always expensive but not invariably competent. Legal experts who have looked at the behavior of the attorneys in this case have universally found their proceedings highly suggestive of corruption. When the famous trial attorney Norm Pattis was acquainted with the case, he exclaimed, “My Lord! What a mess!”

The obstreperous partner’s lawsuits failed in court after court until one controllable, activist judge was found. After Jeff paid one attorney over $400,000, the presiding judge, Royal Furgeson, inexplicably ordered ALL present and future income from Jeff’s company be turned over to his attorney. And to add more than a pinch of surrealism to injustice, the judge hurled threats from the bench:

THE COURT: You realize that order is an order of the Court. So any failure to comply with that order is contempt, punishable by lots of dollars, punishable by possible jail, death.

MR BELL: And death.
THE COURT: They do and I have jurisdiction, too. So I’ll tell you what…. You want to challenge the court order, I have the marshals behind me. I can come to your house, pick you up, put you in jail. I can seize your property, do anything I need to do to enforce my orders. I’m telling you don’t screw with me. You are a fool, a fool, a fool, a fool to screw with a federal judge, and if you don’t understand that, I can make you understand it. I have the force of the Navy, Army, Marines and Navy behind me.

Naturally, the attorney who had received all the income from the company, hundreds of thousands of dollars, wasn’t about to contest the judge’s order. More than one outside judicial expert suspects conspiracy.

Remember that federal judges are appointed for life. In this case, the judge made rulings without any conceivable basis in fact or law, acting as judge, jury and executioner, ignoring the constitution. Jeff felt he had no alternative but to put the company into bankruptcy (Jeff has never personally been in bankruptcy). And when he did, control over his company was lost. With the attorneys grabbing off more and more money in great, unjustifiable sums, Jeff reluctantly agreed to settle the civil suit with his double-dealing partner. And then a case that was unparalleled in its weirdness took another wild turn.

Although Jeff complied with all of the terms of the settlement agreement, the interested attorneys refused to file to have the case dismissed. The blood was in the water, and they were closing in for the kill. After Jeff had already paid ridiculous fees to lawyers in sums of millions of dollars and as the fees kept mounting in great baseless leaps, Jeff filed a formal objection to them-triggering an almost unimaginable round of retribution.

The attorneys bypassed any hearing process and met in secret with the judge to appoint a “receiver” over both Jeff and his company. In doing so, all of Jeff’s possessions and property were stripped from him-everything from his house and car keys to his exempt retirement account were immediately seized. He was further forbidden from working and keeping any money or owning any property or possession. Equally shocking, the sole stated purpose of the receivership was to prevent Jeff from hiring a lawyer. Obviously, the act was in violation of the constitution.

And the receiver himself? The receiver is Peter Vogel, an adjunct judge in the case and a friend of the senior judge. While still acting as adjunct judge in Jeff’s case, Vogel met with adverse attorneys, who requested the senior judge appoint him as receiver. Upon request, without any hearing, Vogel was immediately appointed receiver over Jeff and all his private holdings and possessions and has now been paid around a million dollars (including his law firm). Vogel continues to threaten Jeff with contempt and jail if he hires an attorney. Remember that a federal judge can act as judge, jury and executioner if they choose to ignore the constitution. This is exactly what is occurring here.

Needless to say, this receivership, as confirmed by several attorneys, is a flat violation of numerous articles of the constitution. Jeff has in effect been reduced to servitude. His personal bank accounts, his home, his IRA, his other business interests, a charitable trust for diabetes-all of which had nothing whatever to do with the case at issue-were seized. Jeff has been barred from hiring an attorney, and the court is forcing Jeff’s appellate attorney to work without compensation.

Any attorney Jeff has had contact with in the past has been cajoled to file claims-even more claims-against him. When Jeff filed an objection, the interested attorneys had their friend, the judge, seal it, thus hiding it from the public and preventing it from appearing in the court record. These deeply interested attorneys have thus far enriched themselves to the tune of more than five million dollars prior to the receivership, and now the attorneys are trying to take the rest of Jeff’s money through force. Dispite the enormous amounts of money Jeff has paid to lawyers, the lawyers “claim” they were defrauded and have made claims that are totally groundless and in many instances fraudulent. An expert observer called it “a court-sanctioned gang rape.”

If a judge, as in this case, is allowed to seize all of a person’s assets and make him a servant to his friend in clear violation of the constitution, the implications for all Americans is ominous. If not overturned, decisions such as these set precedent and become part of the “common law” that all Americans are bound by.

Jeff is not an aristocrat. He does not live in a palatial home or drive a sports car. His car is twenty years old, and Jeff lives in a modest condominium in a working class neighborhood. He has been forbidden a livelihood and even denied funds for a health-imperiling medical condition. The attorney-judge cabal not only wants his assets. They want his life.

The sad part about all of this, is that we have allowed the bench to do this, even though it is unconstitutional to do. We have allowed our judges to do this. We have allowed our media to tell us things that are not the truth. We have allowed our politicians to do what they want, with no consequences to any of them. And this has got to stop. My friends, and you who do not agree with me, listen. This country is at stake.

Now for you liberals, you may not care, but think of this. America ceases to exist and our enemies come and attack, you will be part of the America that disappears. The enemy of this country does not care if you are liberal, democrat, independent, Conservative moderate or Republican. The enemy of this country does not care what you are, except that you are American and therefore, their enemy. And with this ruling, I would say the enemy includes the activist judges who rule from the bench, instead of enforcing the law, and the constitution.

I have said over and over again that we have to stop voting for the democrats. We also have to stop voting for anyone, no matter what party, who does not love this country and does not want to defend her to the fullest degree. We do that, and we will see America come back to her former glory and greatness, so we can start helping the world again like we used too.

    This is outrageous! I live in Texas and I had heard nothing about this case until now. Thank you for this expose, Robert. Hopefully, the article you quoted will get Jeff Baron’s case out into the open and justice will finally be done for this poor man. I do disagree with one thing in your post. Even though the presiding judge, Royal Ferguson, clearly violated the Constitution, I don’t think this is a case of a liberal judge legislating from the bench. Rather, this is a case of pure, unadulterated greed and corruption run amuck. Let’s not be too hasty to blame every judicial atrocity on liberal judicial activism. Sometimes it’s just human wickedness unrestrained.
    reply from Robert: I agree with your disagreement, but I think that Liberalism and pure unadulterated greed and corruption are the same thing. *ss*

    WorldNetDaily has an article on this story: http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.printable&pageId=362537

    which has a quote from the volunteer lawyer representing Baron in an appeal: “…there are a bunch of dishonest attorneys who have tried, literally, to conspire together to steal money from Jeff”.

    That seems to sum it up, It’s one thing for lawyers to conspire against someone, but when the judge does it too… People will kill for greed, but when they do it “legally”, our system needs fixing.

    There’s also a really shameful article written by TexasLawyers about this case, trying to justify the judge and lawyers actions. If you look at the court documents, the lawyers in the case got paid over $5 million and counting, but the TexasLawyers article blames Baron for allegedly not paying the “poor poor” lawyers anything. Really misleading. Is $5 million not enough?

    You’d expect a publication like TexasLawyers to advocate for lawyers, but that article is so lopsided it’s not funny.
    reply from Robert: When I was growing up you would never hear of anything like this. Now whether you didn’t hear of these things then, because they didn’t happen or were just not reported is something else. But to me this shows that the founding fathers were wrong in this one. Having a judge appointed for life I think is something that plays too much into the power corrupts thing, where if you have a position for life, you have no consequences to your actions. Yet, there is one thing that they did put in that no one is looking at. They can be removed. But that is something that has to be started before it can happen.

    Maybe you can, since your in Texas, *I gather* start a petition to get this judge removed from his “lofty perch” of ruling from the bench. Thanks for all this information sir.
