San Diego County District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis has been catching a lot of justifiable heat lately for her propensity to practice politics over upholding the law. On May 7, 2014, the San Diego Union Tribune published an article titled, “Dumanis accused of unreported meals, DA has prosecuted others for similar alleged omissions” The article states that:
“The second [complaint] claims Dumanis wrongly failed to report a 2012 trip to Washington D.C. sponsored by the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce. ‘Photographic evidence shows that Bonnie Dumanis was on this trip and dined at various breakfasts, luncheons and dinners,” Walker alleged. ‘There is no public record that Bonnie Dumanis paid for these meals or other aspects of the trip….In terms of the chamber’s Washington trip, Dumanis was not the only local elected official not to report it on state disclosure forms. County Supervisor Ron Roberts, San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer and Councilman Todd Gloria were among those who did not include the event on their filings.”
Also on May 7th, San Diego Free Press published an article titled, “San Diego Goddam! The June 3rd Election And Why You Should Care” The article discusses Dumanis’s use of the DA office (and your tax dollars) to hold others to a higher legal standard than she holds herself and her local politico friends. To quote from the Free Press article:
“The Really Serious Stuff is all local this time around. Today I’ll touch on three of those contests: District Attorney, the race for Superior Court Judge, seat 20….What we’re looking at here are fifty or so free meals with a total value of $4583, according to the story. The on-line version of the UT also has a handy-dandy photo gallery of Dumanis at some of these events, including:…September, 2012 (Registration + Dinner) Chamber of Commerce DC Lobbying Trip….Politics, not the law, is what rules the roost in the County District Attorneys office these days….
Voice of San Diego recently examined what’s coming up with the judicial set for the June election and found plenty of reasons why you should care…..Carla Keehn is the former prosecutor who has stepped up to challenge San Diego Superior Court Judge Lisa Schall…Challenging a sitting judge is a big no-no in local politics. They’ve been some serious double dealing backroom type deals made and then (sometimes) unmade as local politicos have attempted to enforce the ‘Thou Shall Not Challenge a Sitting Judge’ rule.”….The incumbent [Judge Lisa Schall] was endorsed by DA Bonnie Dumanis (an endorsement since removed from her website)…
Why did DA Dumanis endorse, then unendorsed Judge Lisa Schall? And what does that have to do with Dumanis not disclosing her Chamber of Commerce affiliated (and funded?) lobbying trip to DC in 2012?
We happen to know first hand that DA Dumanis is covering up one of the biggest frauds ever played on the American public involving Schall and the US Chamber. Dumanis refuses to prosecute Schall and other local jurists for falsifying court documents and concealing plaintiff perjury, in nine years worth of Strategic Litigation Against Public Participation (SLAPP) on behalf of the financial interests of affiliates of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. We think that maybe she unendorsed Schall in March, when our little blog started getting a lot more local hits and news outlets started writing of some of the unethical behavior we’ve helped to uncover. (like the Schall/Dumanis endorsement/unendorsement)
We will state it directly: It would strongly appear to us that DA Dumanis is political prostitute extraordinaire on behalf of soiled white collars, white coats and black robes – and we can PROVE it! Here’s how:
In 2003, the Manhattan Institute Center for Legal Policy paid toxicologists, Bruce Kelman and Bryan Hardin of Veritox, Inc., no less than $25,000 to author scientific fraud on behalf of the affiliates of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Institute for Legal Reform. “A Scientific View of the Health Effects of Mold” claims it was scientifically proven by Kelman, Hardin, and Correen Robbins of Veritox along with Dr. Andrew Saxon of UCLA that:
“Thus the notion toxic mold is an insidious secret killer…is junk science unsupported by actual scientific study.”
The above is bunk. It is well established microbial toxins can do serious harm to human health and sometimes even kill. That’s why they weaponize the stuff for biological warfare; and why so many people can’t tolerate moldy buildings.
In addition to being bribed to pen scientific fraud for the Chamber; Kelman and Hardin forged the name of Andrew Saxon, MD UCLA as their co-author of the paid for hire Chamber publication. Thus Kelman, Hardin, the Manhattan Institute and US Chamber forged the imprimatur of the University of California on the medico-legal policy paper. This was for the purpose of lending undue credibility to their scientific fraud in the eyes of the courts.
The UC Regents are Well Aware of how the UC name has been misused in US courts on behalf of Chamber affiliates via the UC name being forged on the Kelman and Hardin paid for hire Chamber deceit. It’s an intricately woven cost shifting scheme involving many “non-profit” organizations to make tax-payers pick up the tab for the cost of environmental injury and death of workers and all citizens. Its sole purpose is to save money for US Chamber affiliates (aka Bonnie’s traveling buddies) who have caused environmental injuries/deaths.
But what does the above US Chamber and their cohorts’ forgery, bribery, scientific fraud, and public and court defrauding have to do with DA Dumanis and Judge Lisa Schall?
What it has to do with it, is that Dumanis knows the major public fleecing is continuing by Schall and other local court officers falsifying court documents in a SLAPP suit (2005 – 2013); and then falsifying more court documents when trying to cover up what they have done. The SLAPP suit is over a 2005 writing (mine) of how the fraud of Veritox – formerly known as GlobalTox — came to be accepted science in policy and courts with the unethical aid of the US Chamber, think-tank money, and the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, ACOEM.
ACOEM is not a college. Its a “non-profit” trade association made up of occupational physicians, aka work comp doctors. See 2007 Wall Street Journal article regarding ACOEM’s role in the debacle with Veritox: “Court of Opinion, Amid Suits Over Mold, Experts Wear Two Hats, Authors of Science Paper Often Cited by Defense Also Help in Litigation“
Schall and other court officers collusively framed me for libel for the accurate words, “altered his under oath statements” in my accurate 2005 writing to make the exposing of the massive fraud, appear to be a lie. They were trying to stop the cat from getting out of the bag. My writing was published eighteen months before the above WSJ expose’. And Dumanis knows it. I am on tape in her office with Deputy DA James Koerber, for three hours in 2010, explaining it to them and providing them the direct evidence of how the greater fraud continues via the fraud upon the local courts in the SLAPP. From my completely accurate 2005 writing, that they NEED to appear as being a lie or many politicos’ and jurists’ heads will roll for covering up the fraud by criminal means in SLAPP:
Dr. Bruce Kelman of GlobalTox, Inc., a Washington based environmental risk management company, testified as an expert witness for the defense, as he does in mold cases throughout the country. Upon viewing documents presented by the Hayne’s attorney of Kelman’s prior testimony from a case in Arizona, Dr. Kelman altered his under oath statements on the witness stand. He admitted the Manhattan Institute, a national political think-tank, paid GlobalTox $40,000 to write a position paper regarding the potential health risks of toxic mold exposure. Although much medical research finds otherwise, the controversial piece claims that it is not plausible the types of illnesses experienced by the Haynes family and reported by thousands from across the US, could be caused by “toxic mold” exposure in homes, schools or office buildings.
In 2003, with the involvement of the US Chamber of Commerce and ex-developer, US Congressman Gary Miller (R-CA), the GlobalTox paper was disseminated to the real estate, mortgage and building industries’ associations. A version of the Manhattan Institute commissioned piece may also be found as a position statement on the website of a United States medical policy-writing body, the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine. [ACOEM, which writes the work comp guidelines for CA]
Dumanis also knows that San Diego county workers, (and thus county taxpayers), have been cheated by the fraud being used in work comp claims in the county to deny and delay restitution and needed medical treatment. She has used Fraud Assessment Commission funds to falsely advertise that she prosecutes for causes of work comp fraud in the county — but she won’t prosecute those who are at the root of aiding a massive one to continue by criminal means via SLAPP, i.e. her friends in the local courts.
A mere sampling of what DA Dumanis has known since 2010 of the local jurists colluding to defraud with Bonnie’s traveling buddies at the Chamber of Commerce. To quote:

Re: Investigation of ten San Diego judges and justices ignoring evidence of criminal
perjury by an author of policy on behalf of the US Chamber of Commerce, while
strategically litigating against the first person to publicly expose a deceit in US health
policy – adversely impacting injured workers in San Diego county.
District Attorney Dumanis,
This is a formal request for investigation of ten San Diego judges and justices for
aiding and abetting interstate insurer fraud on behalf of the affiliates of the US Chamber
of Commerce, by their failure to stop strategic litigation carried out by criminal means;
and using the courts to retaliate against a whistleblower of the insurer fraud – errors of
their courts. This request for investigation includes Justice Judith McConnell, who is
currently running for Presiding Justice of the San Diego Fourth District Division One
Court of Appeal.
I have already gone on record with the District Attorney’s office over this matter.
While I was sincerely hoping this was just an error of the courts as the case went from
court to court; an unpublished Appellate Opinion in September followed up by a
modification in October, leaves no doubt that this is not an accident. As Mr. Koerber,
Deputy District Attorney suggested, I did file a complaint with the California
Commission on Judicial Performance. However, I am not anticipating any action taken
against these judiciaries from that government entity. Justice McConnell Chairs the
As the elected official in San Diego county, who oversees proper behavior and laws
being followed by all elected government officials in San Diego county, please
investigate how it has occurred that ten San Diego judges and justices just cannot seem to
grasp that it is criminal to use perjury while strategically litigating over a matter of public
Something is terribly wrong in Justice McConnell’s Fourth District Division One Court of Appeal, when six justices cannot grasp the law, that one cannot use perjury to make up a reason they were supposedly accused of perjury while strategically litigating on behalf of the interests of the insurance industry and the US Chamber of Commerce.
As this litigation has cost my family everything we own to defend the truth of my words for the public good; in the face of unbridled strategic litigating being rewarded in the San Diego county courts; and because of this situation being indicative of the courts having a different set of laws when the interests of the US Chamber of Commerce is involved; please investigate the following ten San Diego judges’ and justices’ roles in aiding and abetting insurer fraud to continue by their failure to stop a strategic litigation carried out by criminal means:
Justice Judith McConnell, Justice Patricia Benke, Justice Cynthia Aaron, Justice Richard Huffman, Justice Alex MacDonald, Justice Joan Irion, Judge Michael P. Orfield, Judge Lisa C. Schall, Judge Joel Pressman, Judge William S. Dato”
Judges Pressman and Dato, who aided to conceal the 2008 void Schall judgment, are among the “all 125 San Diego Superior Court Judges” now endorsing Schall for re-election – just like Dumanis was before we started getting some local traction of our blogging about Dumanis covering up for Schall’s felony court doc falsifications being used to fleece the United States public.
READ MORE of Bonnie covering up for her compromised buddies in the local courts and their role in aiding her Chamber buddies to fleece the public, nationwide. Excerpts:
Under the law, Schall’s void judgment cannot be used for her fellow jurists to feign their courts’ subject matter jurisdiction. Yet they have kept on using the fraudulent legal document while knowing it was void. A court with no subject matter jurisdiction while the officer of that court is committing criminal acts under the color of law, translates into no judicial immunity from prosecution for the court officer conspiring to defraud. Although the above is the law, it is only law in legal theory in San Diego County as long as Dumanis is the DA.
Also only theory in the county until Dumanis is removed as DA, its a felony for San Diego jurists to falsify court documents to commit fraud on behalf of the affiliates of the U.S Chamber. This is a bad joke funded with your tax dollars (not the mustache, the billboard):
