Update on the " Harriet Miers and the Judiciary" post of 10 October 2005:

According to the New York Post, "October 20, 2005 -- Brooklyn prosecutors are targeting up to 10 judges they suspect paid to get on the bench -- and told former Democratic boss Clarence Norman he'd better dish on alleged dirty jurists if he wants a plea deal."



Good odds that some more of Chief Judge Judith Kaye's black-robed bench brats will be acting up soon in the headlines. Can we expect Judge Judy to protest that the reports in the press about this one will cause the public to lose respect for the judiciary?

Never mind Harriet Miers, just watch out for all of those Brooklyn bench bums.

    Patentgate ~ I wonder if this recent concern of Proskauer in electronic evidence is a result of their attempt to suppress evidence against their firm in the matter of stolen patents from Iviewit technologies. The theft of the intellectual properties has led to court room requests for Proskauer to procure documents they have stored electronically and their refusal to submit such documents, case Palm Beach County, Proskauer Rose LLP v. Iviewit Holdings, Iviewit Technologies and Iviewit.com, Inc. It has also been uncovered that these corporations in this case were actually illegal set up by Proskauer to mirror their client, Iviewit's companies, in efforts to steal intellectual properties through an intricate artifice to defraud inventors and investors of their technologies. Further, Proskauer has converted these technologies by setting up an anticompetitive monopolistic patent pooling scheme commonly known as MPEG or MPEGLA, whereby Kenneth Rubenstein acted as counsel to Iviewit and then stole the technologies he was supposed to patent for Iviewit, to proliferate in his patent pool that he controls with Proskauer and others.

    The inventions were invented by Eliot Bernstein, Jude Rosario, Zackirul Shirajee and others and where Proskauer representing these inventors went about a series of frauds to steal them and monetize them through MPEG. The crimes are currently under investigation at the United States Patent and Trademark Office and the attorneys are under investigation with the United States Patent & Trademark Office Office of Enrollment and Discipline which requlates corruption by federally approved patent attorneys registered with the USPTO. Other law firms such as Foley and Lardner are involved in the missapropriations.

    Read the entire story at http://www.iviewit.tv or the blog Patentgate at http://patentgate.blogspot.com .

    Proskauer partners Steven C. Krane, former President of the New York State Bar Association and Stephen Krane who is married to Chief Judge of the New York courts Judge Judith Kaye have also been implicated in attempting to derail Iviewit's legal efforts through undisclosed conflicts of interest and violations of Supreme Court offices in New York's bar association.

    In order to tell the players apart you need a scorecard.

    Proskauer partner STEVEN CHARLES KRANE's practice specializes in ethics, and he did a sabbatical in Albany as Judge Judy's law clerk 1984 - 1985 [http://www.proskauer.com/lawyers_at_proskauer/atty_data/0399].

    STEPHEN G. CRANE is an Associate Justice in the Appellate Division, 2nd Judicial Department. He is not a Proskauer partner. [http://www.nycourts.gov/courts/ad2/justice_crane.shtml]

    Methinks you are confusing Justice Crane with Proskauer partner STEPHEN RACKOW KAYE, who IS Judge Judy's spouse. [http://www.proskauer.com/lawyers_at_proskauer/atty_data/0363]

    Do not confuse any of the above with the late STEPHEN CRANE who authored the classic tome "The Red Badge of Courage."
