Judges Are for Sale — and Special Interests Are Buying

A new report details how big business and corporate lobbyists are packing courts with judges who put special interests ahead of the public interest

TIME-

The Occupy Wall Street movement is shining a spotlight on how much influence big-money interests have with the White House and Congress. But people are not talking about how big money is also increasingly getting its way with the courts, which is too bad. It’s a scandal that needs more attention. A blistering new report details how big business and corporate lobbyists are pouring money into state judicial elections across the country and packing the courts with judges who put special interests ahead of the public interest.

A case in point: West Virginia. In 2007, the West Virginia Supreme Court, on a 3-2 vote, threw out a $50 million damage award against the owner of a coal company. Funny thing: the man who would have had to pay the $50 million had spent $3 million to help elect the justice who cast the deciding vote. The West Virginia ruling was so outrageous that in 2009 the United States Supreme Court overturned it. But that was unusual. In most cases, judges are free to decide cases involving individuals and groups that have paid big money to get them elected.

    You sure got that right that Judges are being paid by Title Companies, in particular Fidelity National Title and someone
    who calls themselves Coronet Title.

    Before it became common knowledge that it was Title Companies
    that was behind all the illegal foreclosure judgments so that the Title companies didn’t have to indemnify the forged deeds they were insuring, it was next to impossible to figure out why Judges were ruling against our property rights clearing given to citizens of this Nation by the 5th and 14th amendments of our US Constitution.

    And it the attorneys for the Title companies and the Banks that have infilterated our Land Record Registrys with there false documents.
