Environmental Advocate Sharon Kramer ~US DOJ Lying Experts~Cal Courts & Mold~ Not a pretty story!!
Advocate for Integrity in Health Marketing, Sharon Noonan Kramer, cannot rest until it is acknowledged that officers of the California courts framed her for libel while concealing the evidence that the plaintiff committed perjury to manufacture a needed reason for malice. The plaintiff is a toxic tort expert defense witness for the United States Department of Justice. She can’t rest until the scientific fraud that was penned by the plaintiff in 2002, and mass-marketed into public health policy –that she first exposed in a 2005 writing, is made to cease to harm thousands. She can’t rest until the eighteen Calfornia judges and justices are punished for aiding toxic tort defense witnesses of industry and the federal government to discriminate against the environmentally disabled — by criminal means in the California SLAPP suits of Bruce j. Kelman and GlobalTox, Inc. vs Sharon Kramer (2005 to 2013) & Bruce J. Kelman vs. Sharon Kramer (2010-2013).
May 30, 2013 Confidential letter from the California Commission on Judicial Performance, who did NOTHING to stop the fraud upon the court in SLAPP used to cause mass discrimination of the environmentally disabled, nationwide.
I, Sharon Kramer, authored a publication in 2005 regarding how a scientific fraud was mass marketed into US public health policy for the purpose of misleading U.S. courts to deny liability for causation of a specific environmental injury. I named those who I knew at the time were involved in the scam. I now know there are many more. In relevant part, my accurate writing states,
“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 ManhattanInstitute, 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 building
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]”
Kelman and five additional owners of GlobalTox, now known as Veritox, sued me for libel in May 2005, in the San Diego Courts for the sentence, “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.” Their claims was that it was a maliciously false accusation of perjury.
First officers of the San Diego Superior and Appellate Courts systematically fixed the SLAPP suit to the false finding of libel by making my writing appear to have made a false accusation that it did not make. I.e. that I accused Kelman of lying about being paid to author the ACOEM version. Wrong. I correctly exposed that he was paid by a think-tank to author the U.S. Chamber’s version.
See Justice Judith McConnell’s 2006 anti-SLAPP Opinion acknowledging that Kelman altered his under oath statements when faced with a prior testimony; while making it appear that I falsely accused Kelman of lying about being paid to author the ACOEM mold statement. (the anti-SLAPP opinion is chalked full of mistatement of fact) Then see how they systematically fixed the case again in my 2010 Appellate Petition for Review — which of course, was denied.
Veritox are toxic tort expert defense witnesses for the U.S. Department of Justice. They’ve been paid over $1,000,000.00 for their services to the federal government.
Many court documents were falsified along the way causing the jurists to be conspiring to defraud without subject matter jurisdiction, and thus having no immunity from prosecution for the criminal acts.
In 2008, Judge Lisa Schall and her clerk, Michael Garland, falsified the Judment document after trial, causing it to be void to be used for any purpose. The local jurists, Kelman and his attorney, Keith Scheuer, continued to use Schall’s falsified legal document for five more years to harass me, while knowing it was fraudulent and void; and that they had no subject matter jurisdiction.
San Diego District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis has REPEATEDLY refused to prosecute the county’s judges, justices, Veritox or their attorney for falsifying court documents — as the falsified court documents have continued to be used to harass me in the San Diego Courts. See 2013 Notice to Justice McConnell, Justice Benke and DA Dumanis to “Stop harassing me, you have no jurisdiction“
In addition to fixing the SLAPP suit to the false finding of libel, officers of the San Diego courts REPEATEDLY concealed that Mr. Kelman committed perjury to manufacture an alleged malicious reason for my exposing his FRAUD. A second suit was then filed in 2010 by Kelman and his attorney, Scheuer, to try to silence me of the fraud upon the local courts in the first suit, aiding the continuance of scientific fraud in courts, nationwide. DA Dumanis knows it, but REPEATEDLY refuses to prosecute to stop the public fleecing!
Note the file stamps on the below linked documents, meaning the courts have all of the below concealed evidence of plaintiff Kelman’s perjury to manufacture a reason for malice in the SLAPP suit, to be able to continue defraud the public with scientific fraud when serving as an expert defense witness in courts all across the country:
1. Bruce J. Kelman’s perjury, found in declarations submitted to the courts three times in Kelman & GlobalTox v. Kramer between 2005 and 2008 to manufacture a false reason for malice and to frame the scope of the trial in Judge Lisa Schall’s court, so his underlying scientific fraud could not be discussed in front of the jury, August 2008.
March 27, 2008, Declaration of Bruce J. Kelman . This is regarding a testimony, that in reality he never even gave in my family’s mold litigation of 2002 -03 when he was retained as an expert defense witness for Mercury Insurance. “Mercury case.” The perjured declaration in the SLAPP suit was for the purpose to make me appear to be a disgruntled litigant. In reality, I received approximately $500,000 settlement in the Mercury case; and Kelman never even gave the testimony in the Mercury case, that he claimed he did in his perjured declarations in the SLAPP suit.
Corroborating that he knew he committed perjury in the above 2008 declaration; it is changed slightly from his 2005 & 2006 declaration in Kelman & GlobalTox v. Kramer. In his perjured declarations submitted in the SLAPP, Kelman falsely stated that I was claiming in Mercury that my daughter and I “acquired” life threatening disease and that he, Kelman, testified in Mercury that this was not possible. I never made any such claim in Mercury and my daughter was born with a life-threatening disease, Cystic Fibrosis. One does not acquire that from a water damaged house or anywhere else. CF is genetic.
What Kelman actually testified to in Mercury was that a physician with knowledge of the child –my daughter with Cystic Fibrosis and Allegic Bronchopulmonary Aspergillosis — would have to be consulted regarding the safety of the home. Bruce J. Kelman July 2002 letter to Mercury’s attorneys, Hiles and Stone.
The following is criminal perjury by U.S. DOJ contractor, Bruce J. Kelman, to manufacture a reason for malice in the malicious, Strategic Litigation Against Public Participation, Kelman & Globaltox v. Kramer:
MR. KELMAN”S PERJURY IN SLAPP SUITS TO MAKE UP A REASON FOR MALICE:
“She [Defendant Kramer] apparently felt that the remediation work had been inadequately done, and that she and her daughter had suffered life-threatening diseases as a result. I testified that the type and amount of mold in the Kramer house could not have caused the life-threatening illnesses that she claimed.”
2. His attorney, Keith Scheuer’s, suborned the perjury three times: in his 2005 and 2006 anti-SLAPP brief, directly. (In the 2008 MSJ Opposition Motion, he just slying referred to Kelman’s perjured declaration) Scheuer’s suborning of Kelman’s perjury:
MR. KELMAN’S ATTORNEY SUBORNING THE PERJURY TO MAKE UP A REASON FOR MALICE:
“Dr. Kelman testified in a deposition that the type and amount of mold in the Kramer house could not have caused the life threatening illnesses that Kramer claimed. Apparently furious that the science conflicted with her dreams of a remodeled house, Kramer launched into an obsessive campaign to destroy the reputation of Dr. Kelman and GlobalTox.”
3. When in deposition in DECEMBER 2007 and JULY of 2008 in Kelman & GlobalTox v. Kramer, Kelman was unable to remember what his testimony was in Mercury, the sole reason given for personal malice in Kelman & GlobalTox v. Kramer. These dates, Dec 2007 and July 2008, are BEFORE & AFTER his MARCH 2008 declaration submission stating under oath that he did remember exactly what he had said in Mercury– as he lied in the declarations to manufacture a reason for malice for yet a third time.
4. July 22, 2008 Deposition of Bruce J. Kelman, he couldn’t remember his involvement in Mercury after using perjury to defeat the March 2008 MSJ and the 2006 anti-SLAPP on the issue of malice. (And that, folks! is proof of known perjury in Kelman’s declarations submitted under oath to manufacture a reason for malice while litigating over a writing, mine in 2005, of how his scientific fraud over the mold issue was mass marketed into policy for the purpose of misleading U.S. courts.)
Evidence of Kelman’s perjury that trial judge, Lisa Schall, suppressed in 2008 post-trial motions:
1. October 2008, Declaration of John Richards, Esq. my attorney in Mercury who took Kelman’s deposition in October of 2003. No such testimony was ever given by Kelman in the Mercury case as is falsely stated in his SLAPP declaration to manufacture a reason for malice. We received sizable settlements totally approximately $500K and I never “launched into an obsessive campaign to destroy the reputations” of anyone involved in the matter or anyone else. I just want to stop the fraud. There was ZERO evidence ever presented in Kelman & GlobalTox v. Kramer that I had even said a harsh personal word of Kelman before I wrote of the mass marketing of scientific fraud in 2005.
2. September 2008 Declaration of William J. Brown III, my first attorney in Kelman & GlobalTox v. Kramer and my attorney in Mercury. The Appellate Court has known since June of 2006 that Kelman was committing perjury and Scheuer was suborning it to manufacture a reason for personal malice in SLAPP over a matter impacting public health. The trial courts have known since Sept of 2005 via my declaration.
3. Actually, longer. The first judge in Kelman & GlobalTox v. Kramer was the same judge in Mercury, Judge Michael Orfield, who signed three of the settlement agreements worth about $450K. He retired two weeks before the August 2008 trial in Kelman & GlobalTox v. Kramer shortly after denying the MSJ Motion where Kelman’s perjury and Scheuer’s suborning of it, to establish false theme for malice was again used; and the evidence it was perjury was again ignored. Lisa Schall then stepped in as the trial judge.
3. August 18, 2008 Court Transcript when Judge Schall was framing the scope of the trial (as taken from my 2009 Appellate Brief). The court officer suborned perjury to manufacture a reason for personal malice in the anti-SLAPP/MSJ was then used to frame the scope of the trial so the science fraud could not be discussed in front of the jury. Without being able to understand the underlying fraud, the jury couldn’t understand the reason behind why Kelman “altered his under oath statements” when testifying as an expert defense witness in a trial in Oregon. He “altered his under oath statements” to try to shut down a line of questioning and was obfuscating when discussing how it became a scientific fraud in U.S public health policy that it is proven biotoxins in moldy buildings do not harm…for the purpose of misleading U.S. courts.
4. October 2008 Declaration of Dr. Harriet Ammann, toxicologist and co-author of the National Academy of Sciences, Institute of Medicine “Damp Indoor Spaces and Health”. Because of the perjury to manufacture a reason for malice framing the scope of the trial in Schall’s court; Dr. Ammann could not testify in trial, including that Kelman could not have given the testimony he claimed he did in Mercury, as a toxicologist with a PhD.
Dr. Ammann flew from Washington state and sat in a Vista, Ca hotel room for two days hoping to be able to testify. (Besides never claiming to have “acquired life threatening disease”, we made no claims of illness from toxicity in Mercury – the only thing that PhD toxicologist Kelman can profess expertise to testify to the probability of.) In the Mercury case, we just wanted our cross-contaminated house fixed after a botched remediation so we could safely go home again. Our insurer sued us for not accepting $30K. We counter sued and received the large settlement.
4. What Kelman actually testified to in Mercury was that a physician with knowledge of the child –my daughter with Cystic Fibrosis and Allegic Bronchopulmonary Aspergillosis — would have to be consulted regarding the safety of the home. Bruce J. Kelman July 2002 letter to Mercury’s attorneys, Hiles and Stone.
5. October 2008 Declaration of mold advocate, Mary Mulvey Jacobson. She flew from Boston to San Diego in August of 2008 to testify in Kelman & Globaltox v. Kramer, but there was no point in her testifying in trial since the mass marketing of “Garbage Science” could not be discussed in front of the jury.
6. October 2008 Declaration of my trial attorney, Lincoln Bandlow, Esq., submitted to Schall after I substituted in as my own counsel. The declaration is regarding that “over his strenuous objects” the science could not be discussed in trial and that he found out after trial that false hearsay documents got into the jury room that were not discussed in trial, causing a verdict for Kelman (I prevailed over Veritox/GlobalTox).
7. October 2008 Declaration of Juror #5, Shelby Stuntz, Esq, submitted to Schall and regarding false hearsay documents that somehow got past Schall’s clerk and into the jury room. They are emails calling me a “cyberstalker” (for something I never said) and not discussed in trial, that were read aloud in Schall’s jury room causing a verdict for Kelman.
8. December 2008 Declaration of Jury Foreman, Reverend Roy Litzenberg, stating the jury was told by trial judge Schall, that “yes” they had to follow the “Plaintiffs’ Special Jury Instructions Definition of Actual Malice” and instructions one – six to make the finding of libel with actual malice.
The jury instructions were phrased to make it appear it had been predetermined that I failed to investigate and that I had personal malice for Kelman when I wrote in 2005. (I didn’t then, but I sure do now for his lying under oath to try to destroy me and shut me up of his involvement in defrauding the U.S. public!)
9. In December 2008, the trial judge, Lisa Schall, refused to even hear oral argument for a new trial. In September of 2008, she was publicly admonished by the CJP – then chaired by McConnell, who fixed the anti-SLAPP opinion while concealing Kelman’s perjury.
10. Justice Judith McConnell was the first appellate justice to conceal Kelman’s perjury to manufacture reason for malice in the 2006 anti-SLAPP opinion and the last in 2013 when refusing to be disqualified from the case.
11. Fourteen key lines are missing from the middle of the transcript of Kelman’s Oregon testimony that I was writing of in March of 2005; in the 2006 anti-SLAPP and 2010 “review” Appellate Opinions. This was to make it appear that I failed to investigate and published with reckless disregard for the truth (actual malice).
12. By deleting these 14 key lines, the Appellate justices changed the color of Kelman’s testimony in the Oregon case to make it appear that he willingly clarified about the think-tank money. When the transcript is viewed in complete context, it shows that Kelman and the defense attorney trying to shut down the line of questioning; and that Kelman was then flip-flopping back and forth about the connection of U.S. medical policy via the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine (ACOEM), to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and Manhattan Institute think-tank — when influencing policy and courts over the mold issue with garbage science.
13. June 2, 2013, Another fax to the Commission on Judicial Performance regarding more information that they don’t want of the California courts being in deep trouble for conspiring to defraud – and them too, if they pretend they don’t know that these conspiring judiciaries need to be thrown off the bench and put behind bars for the thousands of lives they have KNOWINGLY devastated – corum non judice.
And that! folks! is just the Tip of the Iceberg of what I know of the mechanics of HOW the U.S. government, State of California, several medical universities, profitable non-profits and private sector industries have worked in concert to defraud the public over the mold issue – with judges and justices in the San Diego courts caught red handed aiding it to continue by criminal means.
This, as the fraud continues to play on in policy and courts to harm the lives of thousands, i.e. that it is scientifically proven by Kelman & Hardin that mold toxins in water damaged buildings could never reach a level to harm and any individual; and I continue to experience a wrath of retaliation for refusing silence — including but not limited to false imprisonment and a false criminal record courtesty of Sheriff Willam Gore for refusing to sign a false confession under oath. The debacle has caused our financial ruination for my refusing to be coerced to say this is not happening in the courts of California to aid the scientific fraud to continue in U.S. policy and U.S. courts over the mold issue.
So PLEASE raise your hand if you understand perjury, suborning perjury and jailing someone for refusing to be coerced into perjury are criminal acts even if you are a judge or a contracted expert witness for the U.S. Department of Justice.
I am so sorry to hear of your residence causing such severe problems and no one willing to help you. I wish I could say that this is the first time that I have heard of such a situation — but it isn’t. I can’t tell you what to do because I have no science or medical degree, and no ability to cause gov’t agencies to act. If it were me, and I was concerned that new buyers will be harmed in the future from the sellers’ non-disclosure of a mold problem, I would contact the listing agent IN WRITING, and let my concerns be known. I would NOT go into my mycotoxin tests, deaths of prior inhabitants, etc., because that could get me into court having to prove my claims as a defendant. I would briefly and simply state that there is a mold problem, a few details about it, and that I believe it needs investigation and attention. That puts the real estate broker in the position of having to make the full disclosure to potential buyers. Good luck!
I lived in a house that killed one of its original owners, killed my mother and my daughter and I have liver and kidney disease caused by 1 of the 5 Mycotoxins in the house. The molds can’t be remediated due to the house being built in to 2 sloping hills that pressurizes the water into the cinderblock. The owners have built a gutter system to route the water behind the drywall to hide the airborne mold out of sight and has put the house on the market for someone else to die from. I contacted EPA, Dept of health, and Natural Resources, and no one cares if residential homes are sold with deadly mold. I plan to help the new owners sue the seller, but need an attorney that is an expert on mold in, or willing to travel to the Rapid City, South Dakota area, Please help, I don’t want to see anyone else die in that house. I have the medical records of my mother, my own, and the Myotoxin reports, as well as recorded testimony and court documents of owner knowledge of mold in the home.
I have unfortunately been the victim of toxic mold since moving into my apartment owned by #Aimco . I had a professional test completed and found that I have been exposed to 10 different toxic mold!! The inspector said it has been around more that a year. #Aimco this greedy slum lord had been getting away with these egregious practice of systematically NOT DOING LEGITIMATE REPAIRS THAT HAVE RESULTED IN TOXIC MOLD.
They have a reputation across this nation as they left wreckage of renting inhabitable dwellings, properties infested with bed bugs, the usage of toxic building materials etc. Please just do a search you can read the devastation that #Aimco has caused families, ,#Aimco has pitted residents against local and federal government as #Aimco continually lies to governmental officials, state judges while lining their pockets own pockets by continuing these illegal practices.
If you are in Maryland please respond as #Aimco needs to be stopped! #Aimco was already sued in California and they have complaints that chis-cross this nation.,
Interesting read. I am kind of a nerd but love to read anything that has to do with mold. Maybe because I’ve made it my profession to do so. Thanks for the informative post keep it up
Mary, notify landlord and have them run ERMI or EPA test to find out. If landlord refused, you can exercise your tenant right and stop paying rent. Contact tenant rights organizaiton for your state law and do all the request and communication in writing and document everything.
We have just moved from an apartment we suspect has hidden mold. This has been and is a horrible experience. The health department will not get involved in mold cases. Any suggestions? We are still leased until the end of July.
