Did you know the judges sitting on the FISA court are appointed exclusively by the Chief Justice of the United States, without any supplemental confirmation from the other two branches of government? John Roberts has named every member of the current court, as a well as a separate three-judge panel to hear appeals, known as the Court of Review.
Justice Roberts’ Shady Dealings
This is how John Roberts handled the Leader v Facebook case. In Leader Technologies’ Petition for Writ of Certiorari submitted to Roberts, he failed to recuse himself since he:
(a) had a personal mentor relationship with Facebook’s appeals attorney, Thomas G. Hungar of Gibson Dunn LLP,
(b) he had substantial holdings in Facebook financial interests,
(c) failed to demand conflict of interest recusals pursuant to the Code of Conduct from the three-judge panel in Leader v. Facebook since each judge held substantial Facebook financial interests. Federal Circuit Judges and Clerk Alan D. Laurie, Evan J. Wallach, Kimberly A. Moore, Randall R. Rader, Jan Horbaly,
(d) failed to set aside the Federal Circuit ruling in Leader v. Facebook once it was discovered that Weil Gotshal LLP attorney Edward R. Reines entered an appearance in Leader v. Facebook on behalf of the Federal Circuit Bar Association (in which the judges were members) while he was simultaneously conspiring with Federal Circuit Chief Judge Randall R. Rader to fix cases (Rader was removed from the bench; he had done nothing to police the multiple breaches of ethics of the Leader v. Facebook panel),
(e) had previously recused himself in a case involving Microsoft, who was and is a notoriously-known principle stockholder and technology provider to Facebook, therefore his Microsoft holdings gave him a recusal-able conflict of interest in Leader v. Facebook,
(f) failed to disclose his common membership and association with Hungar’s partner Theodore B. Olson in the Senior Executive Service (SES) Association shadow government,
(g) failed to disclose his conflict-level camaraderie with Gibson Dunn LLP’s Theodore B. Olson in the former U.S. Solicitor General’s club. Roberts (1992 Plum Book), Olson (1984 Plum Book),
(h) failed to order release of Zuckerberg’s 28 computer devices from his Harvard period (2003-2004) after it was discovered in another case that Facebook had lied about their existence, saying they were “lost,” then magically found to be in the possession of Facebook’s appeals attorney Gibson Dunn LLP the entire time.
