Indifference to Injustice Tracker

After asking countless news organizations to cover judicial fraud, and invariably getting cold shoulder (and more — thinking that “public” radio, being funded by the public, should be more amenable to public’s concerns, I contacted my local station WNYC on-line and in-person, and kept sending communications with further evidence of judicial fraud to, among others, CEO Goli Sheikholeslami, head of programming Andrew Golis, and political anchor Brian Lehrer –,, — but instead of explaining their reasoning, WNYC blocked my e-mail addresses and phone numbers so I couldn’t contact them anymore; and their head of security called me and all but dared me to go on a hunger strike.)

Which is what I contemplate doing, but my friends object, telling me that I should instead be building up public awareness on the internet. While they don’t believe me, I tried doing that all along, and it was of no use; but since Covid-19 sharply reduced human contact without which the hunger strike would be even less fun than in normal times, I thought I’d start a sort of public diary of my attempts to contact others, keeping a tracker of public indifference. I think the below piece, “Is Justice Possible Under ‘Corrupt and Malicious’ Judiciary?” can serve as a manifesto of sorts — so I will send it to papers, and bloggers, and journalists for whom I can find contact information, and will report on results. While waiting for a vaccine, let’s keep track of indifference to injustice. (Sept. 1 NOTE — While when I wrote the article I surmised that the media refuses to cover judicial fraud because journalists and judges are in cahoots, I now think it may even be worse, the media seeing the judiciary not as part of the government, but as the check on it, and hence, as a benign force not needing to be scrutinized. Thus, the “government” journalists investigate is limited to the executive and the legislature. Press’ naive view of the judiciary helps the latter hide from the public the fact that it is often as abusive and corrupt as the other two branches of government can be — and in the absence of press scrutiny has become so brazen that it justifies its practices by arguing that in Pierson v. Ray judges gave themselves the right to act from the bench “maliciously and corruptly,” no less. This appalling naivety of journalists requires a complete paradigm shift in reporting — the judiciary has to be viewed as an integral part of government, and hence, be put on the radar and investigated for the bad and illegal things it does.)

NOTE: The article did get published in August 13, 2020 issue of Albuquerque Weekly Alibi, so instead of full text, I am providing here a link to the on-line version, and to download link to PDF of the print issue.

September 24, 2020 — saw New York Times’ invitation to send ideas to change Supreme Court, and e-mailed ( the following:

Thanks for inviting ideas on making Supreme Court impartial.
Like all other courts, Supreme Court gets for adjudication parties’ argument, but adjudicates judges’,  by introducing “sua sponte,” (their own) argument which parties cannot rebut, and which turns judges into parties to the case before them. This violates “due process of the law” which, in any interpretation, demands that judges be impartial, as Lady Justices shows them.
Deny judges the ability to use “sua sponete” argument, making them adjudicate parties’ argument, and you will no longer have “Trump judges” or “Obama judges.” Only then will you have justice and “rule of law” — the governing law being “due process of the law.” What we have now is not the “rule of law” but the “rule of judges” — a very different thing indeed.”

September 3, 2020 — As with previous issues of Alibi, checked today’s to see if there is a “letters” section and if so whether any letter mentioned my piece. And indeed, one of them did (on-line version and download link to PDF) — singling me out as the personification and epitome of bad writing among magazine’s guest authors (“P.S. While I cherish the right to free speech, it is not required to be printed or promoted by others. That being said, please do not print any more Lev Tsitrin mushy-peas writing. If his “article/essay” is any indication of the writing in his self-published book, he is not able to advocate cogently for his cause.”) I enjoyed both the editor’s tongue-in-cheek reply and, of course, the fact that someone was sufficiently roiled to address my piece. The letter is superbly written, and pseudonymous;  I wonder if the author is in the legal profession. If so, it is not surprising that I touched a raw nerve. Other than that, did nothing of substance — wrote and submitted to AT a blog entry on immigration (it was rejected), wrote (for umpteenth time) to The Jewish Week, and read and contacted the author of an article on Islamist ideology; he replied, so hopefully something will come out of it. But had no time for either tweeting or e-mailing.

July 17, 2020 — Received, via an e-mail, a Washington Examiner oped titled “Iran’s impregnable regime” and asked the following email to be forwarded to the author: ”

Dear Mr. Levinson,
I read your “Iran’s Impregnable Regime” with interest, and in one respect found it fascinating: while you admit the central role of “ideological zeal” in regime’s survival, you do not suggest an attack against Iran’s ideology. In fact, this is a very typical attitude: I hear from everyone I contact that it is useless to fight religion, that they are just fanatics and suchlike.
And yet, their ideology is extremely vulnerable. I wrote a book on the subject some 15 years ago, titled “The Pitfall of Truth: Holy War, its Rationale and Folly” (a differently-titled first version of which appeared couple of years before 9/11), which shows that the entire edifice of Islamic ideology ultimately rests on a single hidden premise: that the “true believer” has the ability to know that God was communicating to Mohammed. As I showed in the book, all such two-step, three-party communications are inherently unreliable; as a result, a “true believer,” by ascribing to himself the abilities he does not have, turns himself into idol-worshiper. (I once talked to NYU religion professor who instantly understood my argument and fully agreed with it — but was utterly appalled when I suggested that we we should publicly state that ayatollahs and their followers are idolaters. Her political instincts overwhelmed her sense of reality — which is what I suspect happens to everyone I attempt to convince).
I wonder what you think about it. I have a site which I stopped updating for a decade or so; you can find more information there, Please take a look:
I look forward to hearing from you.”

July 16, 2020 — Read New York Times’ opinion by Linda Greenhouse, ”The Many Dimensions of the Chief Justice’s Triumphant Term” which clearly confirms the absence of “due process of the law” — if not in that many words, than by admitting that “it’s not surprising that the ambitious and accomplished people who make it to the Supreme Court have some goal or goals in mind, some way they would like to move the law or, in the case of liberal justices in recent decades, to prevent it from moving in an unwanted direction.” So per the New York Times, it is not parties’ argument, but political ambitions of judges that motivate judicial outcomes; hence, judicial fraud. Wrote to that effect to her ( On August 13, sent her a link to the article.

July 16, 2020 — In my e-mail got an article by NYU Professor Alon Ben-Meir titled “The Pandemic Of Racism In America.” Predictably, he wrote that “The whole socio-economic and cultural system is lopsided, as it lacks the fundamentals of justice and equality. … Although the US judiciary is considered to be just and impartial, in most court hearings race is present albeit it is not spelled out. It is as though Black men inherently have no equal rights and to this day, 230 years since the constitution was written, injustices still exist in both federal and state courts.” I just had to reply (, pointing out that “The problem with the justice system is that judging is arbitrary. It has nothing to do with race; it is universal. It is not that judges are racist, but that judicial decision-making process is not guided by any “due process of the law.” The problem is system-wide, encompassing blacks and whites and everyone else.” On July 17, got a reply stressing well-proven variation in sentencing that disfavors blacks. Wrote back that this is not what I am talking about — that judicial fraud is replacement of parties’ argument done by judges in civil cases.

July 15, 2020 — Read in the New York Times a fascinating story of Harvard Professor Steven Pinker being bashed by lesser academic stars for his openness to ideas that fall short of super-strict political correctness.

Forwarded again my messages to Senator Simkha Felder (, Assemblywoman Helen Weinstein ( and Councilman Chaim Deutsch ( Got a call an hour later from Councilman Deutsch’ office advising that no funding is provided to WNYC in 2021 from his discretionary funding (i.e. funding allocated to each council member.)

July 14, 2020 — Heard on WNYC an interview with Washington Post Media Correspondent Margaret Sullivan and e-mailed her ( asking why judicial fraud is not being reported.

Received a very cordial reply on August 10, essentially confirming my experience, and conclusions. On August 13, e-mailed them the link to the article.

July 13, 2020 — A friend sent me links to futuristic articles discussing Artificial Intelligence algorithms eventually replacing judges. I contacted, via a form, Stephanie Condon, author of: “AI in the court: Are robot judges next?;” Rana Rajput, author of “Can AI Be Fairer Than a Human Judge in the Judicial System?” (I could’t find a direct e-mail address on the page and e-mailed the site,; and Christopher McFadden (via site’s “contact us” form), author of “Can AI Be More Efficient Than People in the Judicial System?“, pointing out that the picture of judicial process painted in the articles is too simplified, altogether omitting judicial fraud — and that AI would indeed be a huge improvement over the current, “corrupt and malicious” decision-making process since it would preclude judges’ ability to inject his or her argument into the decision-making process. No replies so far.

July 10, 2020 — Sent a pitch to Public Citizen ( On July 15, received a reply “Thank you for your email. However, we do not have a forum appropriate for publishing your article”

July 10, 2020 — Considered the suggestion to contact Brennan Center for Justice — which I contacted multiple times many years ago, and discovered that they don’t care about justice one bit, and are unwilling to talk about judicial fraud. But attitudes change with time, and people change, too. So e-mailed them (,, suggesting that they consider noticing the elephant in the [court] room that is judicial fraud. No replies so far, so on August 13 e-mailed them a link to the article.

July 10, 2020 — At friend’s suggestion, checked FreedomWorks, and contacted them through their form, suggesting that they write about judicial fraud, and offering my help. No reply so far, so on August 13 repeated the procedure sending them a link to the article.

July 10, 2020 — At friend’s suggestion, read “Structural Reforms to the Federal Judiciary – Restoring Independence and Fairness to the Courts” from Center for American Progress. It lists many suggestions for reform – rotating judges, limiting terms, expanding Supreme court, diversifying the bench – but has not a word on the elephant in the room, the absence of “due process of the law” in the judicial decision-making process. So the real solution — to eliminate judges’ ability to inject their own argument into their decisions, limiting them to evaluation of parties’ argument, is missing. Contacted – via respective forms – its authors, Danielle Root and Sam Berger suggesting that they add it to their document. No replies so far, so on August 13 repeated the procedure sending them a link to the article.

July 10, 2020 — Read New York Times’ “A Conservative Court and Trump’s Own Appointees Declare Their Independence” and attempted to post a comment when there were just 83, 121, and 134 comments. It was not approved (CORRECTION — it was posted at 174 comment count, some 3 hours after original attempt. Still, I am grateful!). My comment read:

“We constantly hear about “independent courts.” The question is, “independent of what?”

In my experience, federal courts are independent of law – if constitutionally-guaranteed “due process of the law” is a law. As I learned in my own litigation (Overview Books v. US) the “process” employed by federal judges is: upon receiving parties’ argument, replace it in decision with bogus argument of judge’s own concoction, so as to decide the case the way judge wants to, not the way he has to.

This cannot possibly square with “due process” under which judge must be impartial – no one is impartial to one’s own argument. Nor can judge’s argument be rebuffed – it appears for the first time right in the decision.

As to “equality before the law” – when I sued judges for fraud they argued that they in Pierson v. Ray they gave themselves the right to act from the bench “maliciously and corruptly”, and were thus immune from prosecution.

So, yes, judges are independent – but is that good, if their independence is from law, procedure, facts, basic decency?

The press refuses to cover the fact that full third of US government, its judiciary is officially and proudly “corrupt and malicious” (my op-eds go nowhere, and journalists I spoke to are horrified by the suggestion that they report it); out of  sense of duty I started my own site, Coalition Against Judicial Fraud.

I wonder why the fact that we have not the “rule of law” but the arbitrary “rule of judges” is not worthy of news article.”

Also, emailed those quoted in the article: Carrie Campbell Severino (, President of the Judicial Crisis Network, Brian Fallon (, the executive director of Demand Justice, Tom Goldstein, ( publisher of Scotusblog, and Richard Primus (, a constitutional scholar at the University of Michigan Law School. I was unable to locate email address for the reporter of the story, Peter Baker, and had to tweet at him (@peterbakernyt) offering my help with understanding of what is wrong with federal courts. No replies so far. No replies so far, so on August 13 sent a follow-up, with a link to the published article, re-tweetingt Peter Baker too.

July 8, 2020 — heard on WNYC’s “The Takeaway” an interview with Reuters journalist Michael Berens headlined “Judges Around the Country Have Troubling Records, Yet They Still Serve on the Bench,” read his report and e-mailed him, his co-author and three law professors they cite in their report (,,,, No replies so far, so on August 13 sent a follow-up, with a link to the published article.

July 7, 2020 — when googling “hunger strike,” came upon a great site dedicated to Defending Rights and Dissent and thinking that “due process of the law” being a constitutional right, the folks there should be interested in the fact that no such thing exists in the judicial decision-making process. I called them, was told to e-mail Susan Udry (, and did so. No replies so far, so on August 13 sent a follow-up, with a link to the published article.
