10-09-19 Correcting False Reporting by the Los Angeles Times re: Release of Richard Fine

Subject: Correcting misleading reporting by the Los Angeles Times in re: Release of Richard Fine

To the Editor:

Please accept the correction, below, to your misleading September 18, 2010 report "Attorney Richard Fine
spent a year and a half behind bars on contempt-of-court charges. Is that justice?" [1]

The report provided the readers false information, starting with its first sentence: "Richard Fine -- was
released Friday from Los Angeles County Jail after spending a year and a half behind bars on contempt-of-
court charges."

The true facts in the matter are that Richard Fine was both taken into custody and released from custody
with no due process of law and with no valid and effectual court records to provide the legal foundation for
the conduct of Sheriff Leroy Baca in this matter.

Isn't time that the Los Angeles Time start responsibly reporting regarding the conduct of the justice system in
this county?

[1] Attorney Richard Fine spent a year and a half behind bars on contempt-of-court charges. Is that justice?
Former US Prosecutor Richard Fine released last night - with no due process of law - additional evidence of false

Los Angeles, September 18 - 70 year old, former US prosecutor Richard Fine was released last night from a year and a half of solitary
confinement with no evidence that his release was the outcome of due process of law. California law is explicit in stating that the
Sheriff must not take any person into custody, or release any person from custody, without valid court orders to such effect. The
release of Richard Fine with no evidence of court order to that effect, however, matches his taking into custody with no warrant and
with no judgment/conviction or sentencing ever entered in his case.
Combined, Richard Fine's taking into custody and his release with no due process of law provide evidence of false imprisonment
through collusion of Judge David Yaffe, Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles, and Los Angeles County Sheriff
Leroy Baca.
As documented in court actions filed by Richard Fine over the past year and a half, such conduct was fully patronized by the United
States courts - national tribunals for protection of rights - from the US District Court, Central District of California, through the US
 Page 2/2 September 19, 2010

Court of Appeals, 9th Circuit, to the Supreme Court of the United States.
Richard Fine had shown that judges in Los Angeles County had taken "not permitted" payments (called by media "bribes"). On
February 20, 2009, the Governor of California signed "retroactive immunities" (pardons) for all judges in Los Angeles. Less than two
weeks later, on March 4, 2009 Richard Fine was arrested in open court, with no warrant. He is held ever since in solitary confinement
in Los Angeles, California. No judgment, conviction, or sentencing was ever entered in his case.
Richard Fine attempted to have his habeas corpus reviewed by the United States courts, from the US District Court, through the US
Court of Appeals, to the Supreme Court of the United States; however, all United States courts involved in the matter denied Richard
Fine access to valid judicial review; instead, Richard Fine was subjected only to pretense judicial review, while false and deliberately
misleading dockets were published online, affecting the pretense that Richard Fine’s case was indeed accorded valid and effectual
judicial review and was duly denied.
