Lawsuits filed against Pennsylvania Supreme Court: Entire Pennsylvania judicial system alleged to be unconstitutional

Two separate lawsuits were leveled against the Pennsylvania Supreme Court and other defendants Thursday, September 4.

Congressional candidate for Pennsylvania’s Eleventh District, Andy Ostrowski, was the first to file against the courts, in the United States Middle District of the Third Circuit. The second to file is Ed Bogan, who submitted his case in the United States Eastern District Court. He also named the Pennsylvania Supreme Court and the Office of Disciplinary Counsel as defendants, among others.

Besides the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania, Ostrowski named as defendants the Pennsylvania Disciplinary Board, Paul Killion, Robert Fulton, Deon Turner, Robert Snook, Capitol Police, Officer Sloan, 1–25 John/Jane Does, and Dunmore lawyer Brian Cali.

Ostrowski lawsuit

Ostrowski’s lawsuit features as a prime grievance current disciplinary proceedings taking place against Don Bailey, which constitute a case of pure retaliation for Bailey’s speaking out against judges, according to Ostrowski.

Don Bailey is a former United States Congressman and PA Auditor General who was stripped of his law licence in October 2013.

Article 5, Section 10(c), of the Pennsylvania Constitution grants the Pennsylvania Supreme Court exclusive plenary authority over all aspects of the Pennsylvania judicial system. Such extensive authority violates the separation of powers and checks and balances needed in a representative democracy, according to Ostrowski.

What is needed, said Ostrowski, is for “the federal courts to enter a declaratory order to effectively strike down Article 5 Section 10C of the Pennsylvania Constitution, which is in direct violation of Article 4 of the United States Constitution. The entire judicial system of Pennsylvania is unconstitutional.”

If Ostrowski prevails it will force either the Pennsylvania legislature or the United States Congress to act.

This is the perfect issue for Congress, demanding congressional actions, said Ostrowski. “That is why I am running for Congress.”

In the case of Bogan, he asserts his ex-wife and her attorney falsely testified concerning his whereabouts at a critical time, claiming to witness him being in one place, when, in fact, he was at work at the maximum security prison where he is employed. “So I exercised my rights in accordance with the law,” said Bogan

Attorneys, before entering upon the duties of their office, are sworn in before an individual authorized to administer the oath pursuant to 42 Pa. Consolidated Statutes §2522 (Oath of Office), which reads:

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support,
obey and defend the Constitution of the United States and the
Constitution of this Commonwealth and that I will discharge
the duties of my office with fidelity, as well to the court
as to the client, that I will use no falsehood, nor delay the
cause of any person for lucre or malice.”

“Any person refusing to take the oath or affirmation shall forfeit his office,” the statute states.

“The lawyer perjured herself; I reported her. They refused to protect the public, i.e., me,” said Bogan.

“Coming from a family that is employed in the law enforcement, judicial, and legislative sectors I/we placed a lot of faith in the court system. I can say (and also my family, i.e., parents, uncles, etc.) that it shocks us/me, how corrupt the Pennsylvania court system really is.

“The faith that I once did have in the Pennsylvania court has dwindled away to nothing.”

The Independent Gazette is continuing its ongoing series, “Custody for Cash,” an exposé documenting the family court system in Pennsylvanian and other locations in the country. Our next issue prints Monday, September 8.

So  if  You were to Author an Act / Law  that were similar to the Anti Sedition Act .....  The Anti Bill of Rights Act would make it a  Jail Offense based on a Scale of High Crimes and Misdemeanors for Government Employees , Officials, Law Enforcement, Judges and Prosecutors to NEGLIGENTLY and or Intentionally  violate the Human and Civil Rights  ( Bill of Rights ) of Americans and People Generally. I am 100%  in stripping the  COURT CREATED  Immunities ..... The  Immunities themselves are a  VAST  CRIME  SCENE.    But seriously  How would this  Anti Bill Of Rights Act  work and what provisions should it contain ?   For  Bill  Sharpe    https://www.facebook.com/groups/1577242979164235/

I think a  Treason Act  for Violating the Bill of  Rights is a  SUPER IDEA. Violating the  Bill of  Rights is after all  a  Human Rights Violation.    We  Start  a  FaceBook  Site ......  Your  Idea  is a  SOUND  and  APPROPRIATE  One  ......   I am on board 100%    Judson Witham

@jurisnot I believe we all have to do our part, there is no accountability for these criminals,who hold office in this country, they have no honor, they have no morals,and if we the people do not raise our voices in anger, and objection to their activities, who will stop them. The only time a politician loses his job, or is held accountable, is when he screws over another politician with more power, by doing and saying nothing we then condone these actions, you are not alone, join as many patriot groups as you can, join the fight.  Thank you for your reply   bill sharpe

@jurisnot I believe that the US Supreme Court has listed what is Treason in separate decisions in 1821 and 1978.

Violating the Bill of  Rights  is  a  Human Rights Violation. I AGREE ....  a  Treason Act  would be a  GREAT  THING.   I support it  100%.   We  Need a  FaceBook Site ..... Are  You Going To Do It  OR SHOULD I   ?    Thanks  SUPER  IDEA

What we need in The United States of America is a bill called the Treason Act. It would be used to control our politicians and political parties. It would define what treason is and would have to be signed by the politicians before they could hold any position in office. It should have the definition of treason and also the penalties. The penalties should not be limited to death. It should includeall the money that the treasonous person including their family and extended family members have acquired in their lifetime in this country or any other country, including any and all properties such as stocks, bonds, corporations and any financial holdings. The definition of treason should include noncompliance of the Constitution, anything that hurts any citizen who is unable to take care of themselves due to age or sickness. I'm sure that if this bill was created to control and make our politicians accountable we would have a better country. This is just an idea to help make this country better. I'm sure that there are many other American citizens who could add even more to this. It would be used to protect all American citizens from corrupt, immoral politicians who take money or gratuities from corporations, private individuals and or other governments. This should be a requirement for all elected politicians only. If you have any ideas or thoughts pass this on or add to it.

Yes Paul, I have heard this. If I were still on the court I would try to get you all the details, but I think that might be difficult. But I'll try if you can't get satisfaction. I suggest you call Justice Owens. Karen Unger is her friend and she (Owens) recused from her case for that reason. She knows the details or could get them. Let me know what you find out. While I was on the court I tried mightly to change the rule which says if the lawyer loses he pays the bar's reasonable attorney fees, but if he wins the bar doesn't pay anything. You also might call Karen's lawyer. Like I said if you strike out I'll try to help myself. Great to hear from you.

When I first heard about this, a long time before you contacted me, I was outraged. Still am. I was also told the same attorney at fault is still employed by the bar. See my last message for further action.

Ask your Law Enforcement Folks what THEY HAVE DONE to preserve protect and defend the constitution. If the answer is they are following the orders of a judge, 


ASK IF THEY SEE THE PROBLEM WHEN THE JUDGE IS IGNORING YOUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS.


Everyone has Constitutional Rights up until they don’t. And then, there’s nothing you can do about it. No where to turn. No politicians to help. The lawyers are mandated to ignore you. The non-lawyers ask their lawyers what it’s all about… and are misinformed into ignoring you.

@TeranceHealy The Factual Aspects are suppose to be a JURY Question and ONLY a Fact Finder's Prevue to answer.  The problem is that Police Protect Judges and Judges Protect Police.  The  Government KNOWS when Self Interests are what THEY need to be protecting. This is EXACTLY WHY We Common Folk need to stick together and Protect Each Other.

This is good.  Time to kick bricks out of PA corruption.  Corruption in zoning is deep and a way of life in Philadelphia.  Mayor Nutter, District Attorney Seth Williams are already being sued for taking homes. But it doesn't stop there. The political machine in Northwest Philadelphia dug up a contaminated site next to my house and caused permanent damage. The judge didn't care about the demolition , excavation and environmental violations and crimes.  This was a very politically connected project.   District Attorney's best friends directly involved.  City Planner who worked 30 years with City Council wrote the City had engineered a conspiracy against me.  They have been terrorizing me, landing me hospital numerous times, lying and covering up their crimes for years.   The top officials lied a lot during the aftermath of the Market Street demolition deaths. They pretended they didn't know anything about demolition safety even though they knew all about my problem and put great effort in "offing" me. Deputy Mayor Alan Greenburg  had received 1st rate demolition protocol  and safety from Baltimore at a Public Interest Law Center Symposium in 2011.  Plus years of notification of violation at the site next to me and reference to their own rules, state rules and what other cities had,  They didn't care.  They were trying to kill me so their cronies could go ahead and build their project. Today it came out that a Philly cop filed lawsuit against the police department for corruption and exposes what we all know and what the police did to me.   Ly about situation and set people up. The 14th district endanger4ed my life many times as did every single member of the city counsel and the District Attorney directed colluded with the crimes against me.  They are ruthless and brutal and will kill and cover up their crimes in favor of politics and cronyism and dollar bills.

This is great! The attorney being called out on pergury. Thought I would never see it since it is commonplace for them to get away with this over and over. I have evidence of these types of violations with many folks involved in our cases. I tried to file against the custody evaluator and can prove that he perjured himself but the state shut down that investigation. Good luck to both of you. If PA continues to deny PA citizens their rights and continues

their corrupt BS, we all lose.
