Lawyers Seeking Court Order to Seize
High-Level Corruption Related to Major National Disasters
On January 3, 2007, the Pasadena lawyer John Guerrini filed a motion for a court order seizing the books written by former federal agent Rodney Stich with input from many other former government agents. These book reveal insider information about corruption and related human tragedies that are a greater source of harm, and a great threat, to the people of the United States than the terrorists from outside the country.
For years, these courageous insiders have foolishly sought to protect vital U.S. interests, and the many victims of the corruption, without any help from the public.
The consequences of this is that many tragedies, some fatal, have occurred that could otherwise have been prevented. And that especially applies to the hijackings of four airliners on September 11, 2001, the insider information on the primary area of blame, and corruption, not yet revealed (except in Unfriendly Skies: 20th and 21st Centuries, and Blowback, 9/11, and Cover-Ups.
The way that the latest attempt to seize the books was carried out was to file a sham lawsuit in a remove South Carolina court, where local judges do the bidding of large law firms. They used as the plaintiff Steve Gratzer, formerly of Elko, Nevada, and now believed to be a prison guard in South Carolina. Gratzer's wife, Doris, was murdered. Buts before she was murdered, the distraught woman told an Elko physician (the National Guard medical officer) that if she was found dead, it would be her husband who did it.
This information was put into the book, Drugging America. Although the book did not imply Steve Gratzer killed his wife, the South Carolina law firm of David Collins used Gratzer to file the lawsuit seeking to seize the books. That doctor's information was never made known to any investigators in the murder of Doris Gratzer. However, the information makes Steve Gratzer a primary suspect.
It is ironic that a possible murderer is being used in the latest attempt to seize the books, and thereby keep the public from learning about the vast areas of criminal activities in certain government offices that Stich and a group of other former government agents discovered as part of their official government duties.
Stich filed an objection to the seizure of the books (January 3, 2007), but this will be ignored because numerous California and federal judges are criminally implicated through cover-ups and obstruction of justice.
That filing, objecting to the seizure of the books, also highlights the tactics used to block the public from learning about these matters. (MS Word) (Adobe PDF)
Facts Surfaced In Legal Newspaper
Article That the
Law Firm Had Close CIA or Other Government Ties
The facts strongly indicate that Collins and his law firm were acting for unknown sources in government, not only against Stich, but against those who were exposing President George Bush's delinquent air national guard record. Similar acts were done to discredit Operation Tailwind. (Operation Tailwind is described in detail in the book, Defrauding America, quoting in detail the activities of one of the participants in that operation.)
Sham Lawsuit against
Former Federal Agent And
Whistleblower by South Carolina Law Firm
With CIA Connections
Shortly before the hijacking of four airlines on 9/11, Stich again attempted to report the criminal activities and obstruction of justice that had played major roles in prior airline disasters and with adverse effects upon national security. That lawsuit threatened to expose the obstruction of justice tactics by dozens of lawyers and California and federal judges. (MS Word) (Adobe PDF)
Shortly after that action was filed, another sham lawsuit was filed that sought to seize the books that had been previously published revealing the corruption, the tragedies, and the people involved in cover-ups and obstruction of justice. That lawsuit required, as in the past, the cooperation of many lawyers and judges. The lawsuit was filed against Stich and the corporation that published and distributed the books, by the Charleston, South Carolina, law firm of Smith and Collins, and their attorneys, David Athell Collins and Steven L. Smith.
Although the lawsuit was directed at Stich and the publishing company, people who would be harmed by it would be those who are victimized by the corruption Stich seeks to publicize through his book publishing. That includes the victims of fraud related to air safety; the victims of the arrogant and corrupt was on drugs; the victim of the bankruptcy court fraud; and the victims of the many other criminal activities implicating people in key government positions, federal and California judges, and many others.
That same lawyer and law firm several years later filed a lawsuit seeking to discredit CBS 60-Minute exposure of President George Bush II Texas Air National Guard record, further suggesting links to government sources.
The allegations in the lawsuit were immediately disproved by the facts to which they referred. By filing the lawsuit in a state court where judicial corruption is even worse than in federal courts, and where one-time state judges act to reward certain legal friends, the chances of Stich prevailing were virtually nil.
The law firm knew that Stich had no assets to pay for legal counsel 3,000 miles away, before a judge who is often in the pocket of certain law firms and attorneys. They knew that the publishing company had no assets other than the books, and that it was literally a non-profit operation. Their goal apparently was to obtain a default judgment and then seize control of the books and the name of the books. This scheme would protect the California and federal judges, the legal fraternity whose involvement in the corruption goes back 40 years, as stated in each of Stich's books, would protect Justice Department personnel, members of Congress, and the corruption at United Airlines that caused such brutal consequences for the victim of its fraud.
Using Possible Murderer as Plaintiff in
Lawsuit Against the Former Federal Agent
In the lawsuit filed against former federal agent Rodney Stich in South Carolina, the law firm and lawyers used as the plaintiff, Steve Gratzer, who formerly lived in Ely, Nevada, until his wife was found murdered. A week before her murder, she confided to her doctor, Jed Cserna, M.D., that "If I'm ever shot, Steve [her husband] did it." A week later she was found murdered. Her husband, a friend of the sheriff, moved from Nevada thereafter and moved to South Carolina, where he is reportedly a prison guard.
No Basis for Jurisdiction in South Carolina Court
Judges in South Carolina insured that the sham lawsuit would succeed. They had to ignore, and violate the following:
Attorney David Athell Collins
first contacted Stich through a June 8, 2000
letter, falsely stating:
Imprisoning A Doctor On Perjured Testimony
In 1997 I started receiving information from a physician who had been targeted in a similar gun-charge. Dr. Jed Cserna was an MD with a private practice in Ely, Nevada, and a Lt. Colonel in the Idaho National Guard, with 16 years of military service behind him. His problems started in Ely, Nevada, where he was a physician. Cserna told me how it appeared to start. While he was treating a patient, Doris Gratzer, she told him, "If I'm ever shot, Steve [her husband] did it." Dr. Cserna told this to the hospital staff and they said that she always had problems, and this occasion was no different than others. A week later, she was found dead, killed by a bullet wound to the head.
Cserna said her husband, Steve Gratzer, was influential in the town, especially with the sheriff, who was responsible for conducting an investigation into his wife's killing. Cserna was now a danger to Gratzer. According to Cserna, false statements were made by a government informant, seeking to justify his position and pay, that resulted in a raid by ATF agent Doreen on his doctor's office. His home was broken into and possessions disappeared. Participating in the ATF raid was the sheriff who he referred to as Burnie (Ronero), who would soon participate in sham charges filed against the doctor.
Government agents arrested Cserna a short time later and charged him with possession of a machine gun and a short-barreled rifle. The guns in question were an AR-15 that was not an automatic, and a Uzi 9mm that had been sold to him with a folding stock and various barrels. He had used both guns two and three times a week at the local police firing range and was never questioned about their legality.
The question arises as to whether Gratzer was forced to allow his name to be used in the lawsuit to avoid possible prosecution in his wife's murder. The question applies to the over one-dozen lawyers and half a dozen law firms that got involved in carrying out the scheme, the latest bring Pasadena, California lawyer, John D. Guerrini, and his law firm, The Guerrini Law Firm.
Another person with the Gratzer name, a resident of Nevada,
was charged with the Las Vegas murder of casino owner Binion. (It is not known
whether there is a relationship between that Gratzer and Steve Gratzer.)

Americans. For instance:
California Judges Heavily Implicated
In Events Leading Up to 9/11
The record-setting violations of substantive and procedural due process by California judges from the lowest courts to the California Supreme Court, had to have been orchestrated at some unknown powerful source in the federal government, and in unison with the CIA-front law firm. In the process, these California judges knowingly blocked Stich and his group of other former government agents from reporting the criminal activities that were continuing to inflict deaths in airline disasters arising from the misconduct in the government's aviation safety offices (the area of primary blame for the successful 9/11 hijackings), and responsible for continuing the corruption in such other offices as the FBI-DOJ and CIA--where the area of secondary blame existed for carrying out the 9/11 scheme.
This court has received notice from the Superior Court of Contra Costa County that you are seeking to appeal the superior court's judgment or order. This court has determined that you were previously found to be a vexatious litigant. Pursuant to Code of Civil Procedure 391.7, you may not appeal to this court.
Dear Mr. Stich: Returned unfiled is your petition for writ of mandate received today because as a vexatious litigant you are required to have a prefiling order beforehand.
The only litigation Stich had in
the California courts arose from the sham lawsuit filed by the San Francisco
CIA-front law firm of Friedman, Sloan and Ross. That lawsuit was barred by,
and violated dozens of California statutes and Supreme Court decisions, and
federal statutes and U.S. Supreme Court decisions. Judges repeatedly issues
orders without personal or subject matter jurisdiction. Every time that
Stich exercised a defense specifically provided by California law, the
California judges* protecting the CIA-front law firm labeled it a frivolous
filing and declared Stich a vexatious litigant. In the process, Stich was
stripped of his multi-million real estate assets, made homeless, and
converted from a multi-millionaire to a state of poverty.
Pasadena Lawyer John Guerrini Joined the Scheme
On July 20, 2006, Pasadena lawyer John Guerrini took over to exert efforts to halt Stich's exposure of the corruption that included that which made 9/11 possible. How he would proceed was to be seen, as:
Prior to Guerrini joining the "enterprise," another attorney, Mark Wray of Reno, was asked to take over the collection of the judgment. During a telephone conversation on August 8, 2003, Wray advised Stich he would have nothing to do with the action.
Seeking Court Order to Seize
Corruption in Multiple Government Offices
Guerrini filed several motions in the California courts at Martinez, California, one of which was a motion to seize control of the books. On January 3, 2007, Pasadena lawyer John Guerrini filed a motion for a court order seizing the books that exposed decades of corruption implicating key people in government―including dozens of lawyers, California judges, and federal judges. It was, essentially, another obstruction of justice tactic that started with the sham lawsuit filed in 1982 by the CIA-front law firm of Friedman, Sloan and Ross in San Francisco.
Although Stich had no hopes of prevailing before the hostile California judges that had to also protect the California judges previously implicated in the obstruction of justice tactics, Stich filed an objection to the seizure of the books (January 29, 2007). (MS Word) (Adobe PDF)
Saga of David vs. Goliath Battle Amidst Public Apathy
For years, a former federal agent has fought a one-man battle attempting to expose the continuing corruption in certain government offices and operations that were inflicting grave harm upon the people and upon the country. Initially, the corruption involved airline disasters, specific airline disasterssome occurring in his immediate area of federal aviation safety responsibilities. Not a single person came to help, and that includes the families of those who were killed in fraud-related air disasters. Then came the hijackings of four airliners on 9/11, the hijackings made possible by the arrogance and corruption of key people in the government's aviation safety officesand made possible by the many people who attacked the former federal agent to silence him (mainly judges and lawyers), and the people who knew of these charges and were too lazy to help.
Now, at 83-years of age, in the terminal stages of advanced heart disease, that former federal agent is again under attack by the legal-judicial fraternities, and again, not a single person offers to assist.
He is unable to even get into the courts. California judges—who became an integral part of the scheme to halt Stich's exposure activities—issued orders calling him a vexatious litigant (for exercising statutory defenses against the record-setting violations of state and federal laws, and is thus barred for the remainder of his life from exercising the protections of law. Federal judges have upheld this due process travesty. California Code of Civil Procedure § 391 provides that if any judge rules that a pro se plaintiff's action is without merit, the judge can rule the person a vexatious litigant and that litigant is barred for life from exercising legal and constitutional remedies in the court. And if that person hires an attorney, that attorney has to put up money to pay for possible loss of the suit.
And federal judges have issued orders permanently barring Stich from filing any papers in federal court, thereby depriving him of due process in the federal courts—while concurrently blocking him from reporting criminal activities under the federal crime reporting statute.
Under these conditions, he will go to his grave deprived of the most basic constitutional defenses while being overwhelmed by the criminal misuse of California and federal courts by corrupt judges acting with corrupt lawyers and law firms.
It may seem remote, but these were the tactics used to keep Stich and the other former federal agents from reporting the corrupt conditions in the government's aviation safety offices, the CIA, and the FBI, that were the areas of primary and secondary blame that enabled the four airliners to be hijacked and enabled the scheme to continue when the scheme was known.
The same culture exists; wait for the next series of catastrophic acts to occur, compliments of the corruption in the United States as detailed here, and the indifference of the people.
Possibly the American public deserves what it has, is, and will continue to suffer as a result of its pathetic response to these and related corrupt acts!
Lawyers, Judges, Conspiracies, and TragediesFormer federal agent Rodney Stich and his coalition of other former government agents and insiders had sought to report the corrupt activities in the government's aviation safety offices related to a series of specific airline disasters, and also criminal activities in other areas of overt and covert government activities. The authority for doing this was the federal crime reporting statute and the statute that permits any citizen to seek a court order requiring a federal official to perform a mandatory duty and halt unlawful conduct.
In response to these efforts, large numbers of federal judges, Department of Justice personnel, and over 50 lawyers and law firms embarked on multiple schemes to block the reports of the high-level corruption and silence the former federal agent acting as a whistleblower to expose misconduct resulting in major harm, many deaths, and a series of catastrophic events. Click here for more introductory information.
The first of numerous attempts were made in the late 1970s, as Rodney Stich filed papers in the federal courts at San Francisco to report the criminal activities in the FAA and NTSB to a federal judge that he had discovered during his official federal duties. The reports of the federal crimes to a federal judge were required by the federal crime reporting statute. Failure to have made such a report would have been a criminal offense.
As a matter of criminal statutes, federal judge must receive any report of a federal crime reported to them as part of their mandatory executive responsibilities and not their judicial responsibilities. Their responsibility then is to turn the information over to the proper federal department, which is usually the U.S. Department of Justice.
Any failure or refusal by federal judges to receive report of a federal crime would constitute an obstruction of justice crime by the judge. Every time that federal judges blocked the reporting of existing criminal activities, the crimes continued, along with the resulting harm. In the aviation sector, that consisted of continuing crashes and deaths. So with every judicial cover-up, subsequent federal judges had to also commit the crime of cover-up to protect the earlier obstruction of justice and related harm by earlier federal judges.
Evidence of Corrupt Powerful Force
In Government Affecting Lives and National Security
By obvious "coordination" between California and federal judges, numerous orders were rendered barring Stich from exercising any of the many defenses guaranteed by the laws and Constitution of the State of California and of the United States to the multiple schemes to halt Stich's reporting of the criminal activities that were subverting national interests and causing to be inflicted great harm to the United States, including many deaths. And these corrupt outrages were done in full view of hundreds of lawyers and law firms, who knew the harm being inflicted upon the United States.
There obviously existed a
werful Force in Government Orchestrating The Multiple Cover-Ups and Retaliatory Actions
To understand the following subject, take a look at the introduction to systemic corruption in the United States, the efforts of several courageous former government agents, and the enormous number of people and groups protecting the guilty. That will help understand the existence of a powerful group in government that was orchestrating the retaliatory actions to prevent the information becoming known to the American people.
The evidence indicates that a powerful force in government was orchestrating the multiple parallel actions that blocked the reporting of high-level corruption, and that force was properly key people in the U.S. Department of Justice. Examples of these indicators included the following:
Years of cover-ups by Department of Justice employees when informed of the corruption.
Years of cover-ups by members of Congress when informed of the corruption.
Repeated cover-up by federal judges when former federal agent Rodney Stich filed federal actions under the federal crime reporting statute seeking to report to a federal judge the major corrupt and criminal activities in key government positions associated with a series of major aviation disasters and later involving national security harm.
Series of sham lawsuits filed by a hoard of lawyers that involved massive and unprecedented violations of state and federal laws, followed by repeated additional violations by a large number of California judges.
Unprecedented judicial retaliation for exercising legally-prescribed defenses.
Repeated protection of the massive violations of state and federal laws by federal judges.
Series of illegal and unconstitutional orders by federal district and appellate judges permanently barring Stich from filing any papers in any federal district or appellate court. These orders knowingly blocked Stich and his coalition of former intelligence and law enforcement personnel from reporting as required by law the federal offenses that they discovered during their official duties, and blocked Stich from defending against the massive violation being inflicted by a hoard of lawyers and California judges.
Corruptly, and in gross violation of federal laws and constitutional protections, federal judges corruptly seized, without a hearing and without cause, the $10 million in assets that funded the attempts to halt the tragedy-enabling high-level corruption.
Charging Stich with criminal contempt of court for attempting to report criminal activities that were enabling to occur a series of major aviation disasters—and other harm—and would make possible several major terrorist attacks, including the 9/11 hijackings. That retaliation against Stich enabled the corruption that had already enabled many deaths to occur, enabled the corruption in such areas as the government's aviation safety offices, the FAA, responsible for preventing aviation disasters, including terrorist attack, and within the Department of Justice to continue. Evidence that is little-known to the American people shows gross misconduct in these two groups as having been the primary enablers of a series of horrific terrorist attacks, including the hijacking of four airliners on September 11, 2001.
30-years of federal judges blocking the reports of high-level criminal activities in which they themselves become complicit through cover-ups.
Repeated complicity, from 1980 to 2005, by the Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court, as they aided and abetted each of these and many other instances that were brought to their attention through legal filings and letters.
For these monumental repeated violations of criminal statutes, of major civil and constitutional rights, to continue, knowingly sacrificing lives and national security, required a powerful force in government. And that is believed to be primarily within the U.S. Department of Justice, easily accommodated by a culture of systemic corruption and systemic cover-ups in the United States.
The lawyers, whose actions hindering the exposure of the high-level corruption by activist Rodney Stich, paralleled the block by federal judges and Department of Justice personnel, appeared to be acting for a powerful force somewhere in the federal government. Their actions were similar to the thugs in Egypt hired by the government officials in power, called "Baltagiya," or the hired thugs in Iran called "Basij."

One Day's Consequences on 9/11: 3,000 Dead!
One of the most unrecognized causes of most of the nation's prior tragedies is the ripple effect, sometimes called the "butterfly effect." For simplicity, let's look at the events of 9/11 and the 3,000 people who were horribly killed, and look at the many people who hold a complicity role in those events:
The people with the
legal responsibility for preventing airliners from being hijacked are the
people in the government's aviation safety offices: the FAA. This area has
been carefully avoided during congressional hearings and by the 9/11
Commission members. This is one of the key areas of
that Stich sought to report, for which lawyers and
judges joined together to halt Stich's exposure actions and to retaliate
against him for attempting to make such reports. All of them committed
criminal acts that were involved in thousands of deaths, in only one of
the affected areas!
Secondary responsibilities for the 9/11 hijackings were with the FBI-DOJ and CIA. Although the 9/11 Commission blamed them for neglect, they covered up for the criminal culture in these two groups. It was the corrupt culture in the FBI-DOJ that blocked individual agents from completing their investigations of the terrorists. It was the corrupt CIA culture that devoted more time to their corrupt actions that were crimes against the United States than they spent in trying to find intelligence relating to the scheme to hijack U.S. airliners.
