Is Oakland City Attorney John Russo Above The Law?

Oakland City Attorney John Russo

Oakland City Attorney John Russo

Oakland City Attorney John Russo, the quintesential mayorial want to be, has committed political suicide by a self inflicted corruption wound to the temple and can never win an elected posistion with the revelation of undeniable evidence of criminal wrong doing as protest and demands for his resignation and payment of damages are insurmountable and gaining meteoric momentum!

Oakland City Attorney John Russo Must Be Prosecuted!

John Russo and the City Attorney’s office should be prosecuted for clearly constructing fraudulent fabricated evidence in 1999 and planting that evidence favorable to the defendants in the case files SIX years AFTER the case was closed, engaged in spoliation of the remainning evidence in the court files from 1991; provided the entire case files to defendants Stephan Barber and Ron Cook whom absconded with the files for nearly a year, after this unpardonable breach of the chain of custody of the evidence, allowed the court to subpeona the case files to make the tainted files a part of the official trial record, presented the spoliated evidence subjected to testimony at trial and engaged in acts to coverup these criminal litigation tactics.

For eight (8) years CSAA defense counsel Stephan Barber has denied that he had anything to do with the handling, disappearance, transportation, having possession, copying or returning of the City of Oakland case file in the al-Hakim matter from the 1991 backup. He has repeatedly stated that he “never touched the file” and “knew nothing about it”.
On January 28, 2000, defendant Cook advised Plaintiff by letter that CSAA-IIB was canceling the policy alleging fraud by al-Hakim and seeking the return of all benefits paid and refers to information he has from the City of Oakland litigation file that was not provided by al-Hakim. On March 30 , 2000 Cook reiterates those statements of having this information in letters to al-Hakim’s attorney, Michael Michel. On March 30 ,2000 in letter to the umpire of the appraisal panel, Ron Magin, COOK makes the statement of having the entire City of Oakland Litigation file in the backup matter against al-Hakim but will only produce part of the information as needed.(See letters under Exhibit D) Cook follows that statement with producing the City of Oakland files during the appraisal hearing(See appraisal transcripts from Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim Appraisal Hearing V.2 4/6/00 page 74L14-17 under Exhibit D), the appraisal panel admits the file and photos into evidence(See appraisal transcripts from Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim Appraisal Hearing V.5 4/11/00 page 205L13-24 under Exhibit D) and throughout the appraisal hearing questions al-Hakim, and his experts Robert Gils and Chris Kirschenheuter on the documents.
During the recent CSAA trial Ron Cook admitted on the witness stand that he received the City file from Barber before October 1999. Barber then admitted during the next break that he got the file from the City and arranged to have it copied by AKON Copying Service and that he had said file until June 2000. It was not stolen, misplaced, nor had he absconded with it, it was given to him by the City Attorneys office!!!

al-Hakim and his attorneys Michael Michel and Jeff Fackler, had attempted at least six  times to obtain copies of the City litigation file from November 1999 to June of 2000 and was told by the City Attorney’s Office, specifically, Jannie Wong and Anita Hong that the file was “missing” and was last requested by Ron Cook.(See appraisal transcripts from Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim Appraisal Hearing V.4 4/10/00 page 169L6-9 and V.6 4/12/00 page 106L12-21 under Exhibit E) Finally, after six months, in June 2000, Anita Hong called to notify Mr. Michel that the file had been returned and was available for viewing. At that time Mr. Michel was told that the file had been returned by  CSAA’s attorney. (See Michel letter dated July 5, 2005 under Exhibit E) al-Hakim called Ms. Hong and was told the file was back and available for viewing, and when asked who returned the file, she responded “it was returned by Steve Barber of Ropers Majeski”.

Barber’s admission now corroborates the story that was told to al-Hakim and his attorneys Mike Michel and Jeff Fackler in July 2000 by Oakland City Attorney’s Janie Wong and Anita Hong. However, since 1999 Janie Wong, Anita Hong and Russo have always mainitained that the files were missing and were last requested for viewing by defendant Ron Cook is also perjurious and deceitful. We now know that the December 1, 2005 written statement by Oakland City Attorney John Russo about Anita Hong leaving the case files at the office counter and no one coming to review them is willfully and intentionally perjurious, deceitful and fraudulent.

As a protective measure for his co-defendants, Judge Jon Tigar had ruled that Barber would have to testify and answer al-Hakim’s charges of spoliation of evidence and subornation of perjurious testimony stemming from his handling of the City file if there was more than one case file.

City Case Correspondance

***All Correspondance can be found in Documents Box***

In November 1999 al-Hakim contacted Janie Wong and Juanita Hong to get access to the City file and was informed that the file had been provided to CSAA’s attorney and could not be located. He contacted the City latter in June 2000 and informed that the file had been returned and when asked by whom he was told “Stephan Barber of Ropers Majeski”.

Herein is a letter from al-Hakim’s attorney Michael Michel stating that he contacted Janie Wong and tried to get access to the City file in March 2000 and was informed by Juanita Hong that the file had been produced to CSAA’s attorney earlier and could not be located. He was contacted latter in June 2000 and informed that the file had been found.

On September 2, 2005 al-Hakim called Randolph Hall regarding the handling of the City file and he was referred to Eliada Perez. al-Hakim called and left a voicemail for Perez but never received a return call.

After al-Hakim did not receive a return phone call from Perez, on September 20, 2005 al-Hakim sent a letter to Randolph Hall in regards to his response thru Sophia Lee to a voicemail al-Hakim left for him on September 16, 2005 regarding the handling of the City file.

On October 6, 2005 al-Hakim sent another letter via certified mail to Randolph Hall in regards to his nonresponse and that of Eliada Perez to the voicemail al-Hakim left for them on September 16, 2005 and the September 20, 2005 letter regarding the handling of the City file.

On October 7, 2005 al-Hakim received a fax from Hall sent by Sophia Li referring the matter to Anita Hong, suggesting that she has responded and he has no additional information.

On October 18, 2005 al-Hakim sent another letter via certified mail to Randolph Hall acknowledging his receipt of the certified mail of the October 6, 2005 letter in regards to his nonresponse to the voicemail al-Hakim left for Eliada Perez and him on September 16, 2005 and the September 20, 2005 letter regarding the handling of the City file.

On October 26, 2005 al-Hakim then called Michelle Abney to verify the chain of custody of the City files and discussed this very serious legal matter of breaking that chain of custody and spoliating the files, wherein she expressed her concern that the problems in the handling of the file was very serious and could only be answered by the parties involved. She said she would pass along the concerns and have the appropriate parties to address the issues. al-Hakim never received any response from anyone.

On November 28, 2005 al-Hakim received a letter from Mark Morodomi signed by

Michelle Abney stating the office has no records that are responsive to al-Hakim’s inquires and “Specifically, no “chain of custody” record exists”.

On December 1, 2005 al-Hakim sent another letter via certified mail to John Russo expressing his concern for the disingenuous response from Mark Morodomi signed by Michelle Abney stating the office has no records that are responsive to al-Hakim’s inquires and “Specifically, no “chain of custody” record exists”. This was a continuation of the evasive pattern of not answering by Randolph Hall, Eliada Perez, Janie Wong and Anita Hong in acknowledging Russo and Hall’s receipt of the certified mail of the October 6, 2005 letter in regards to his nonresponse to the voicemail al-Hakim left for Eliada Perez and him on September 16, 2005 and the September 20, 2005; October 18, 2005; and October 19, 2005 certified letters and al-Hakim’s October 26, 2005 call with Michelle Abney regarding the handling of the City file.

al-Hakim states he called Michelle Abney whom confirmed that there was in fact a process in place to verify the chain of custody of the City files and discussed this very serious legal matter of breaking that chain of custody and spoliating the files, wherein she expressed her concern that the problems in the handling of the file was very serious and could only be answered by the parties involved. She said she would pass along the concerns and have the appropriate parties to address the issues. al-Hakim never received any response from anyone.
al-Hakim further states that there could be no way the City could be in the business of litigating case if it had no process for the chain of custody for evidence in it’s cases and again asks that Russo respond to the issues raised in the certified letters received by him.

On December 2, 2005 al-Hakim received a letter from Russo stating the office has timely and thoroughly responded to al-Hakim’s requests, that the files were destroyed between February and August 2005, and Anita Hong recalls that a request was made to review the file, it was retrieved from off-site storage and made available for viewing but no one appeared to review them so they were returned to storage. Russo further states that Mark Morodomi infromed al-Hakim that there are no records that are responsive to al-Hakim’s inquires and “Specifically, no “chain of custody” record exists” applicable to their document retention policy and are destroyed seven years after closing the file.

Russo’s Media Presence

John Russo.com

As the byline on his website John Russo.com, in his brassy, self-touting manner, Oakland City Attorney John Russo refers to himself as “The Leader for Government Transparency and Civic Reform!” – and the standard bearer of – Pragmatic Progressive Leadership!

Russo further describes himself as passionate that all Oakland citizens have a right to a safe community, good job opportunities, a thriving economy, and a responsible and transparent government.

John Russo sells himself as “The Leader for Government Transparency and Civic Reform”, yet al-Hakim has contacted Russo and the Oakland City Attorney’s office several times by registered mail, phone and fax, while having previously served multiple deposition and trial subpoenas on John Russo and ALL the parties named above and they have ALL failed and refused to answer any request for information or appear to testify EVERY time.

Russo has engaged in acts to coverup his criminal litigation tactics, failed and refused to disclose to the court, nor inform the Judge of the City Attorney’s improper and illegal transgressions regarding the fact the defendants alleged absconding with and taking custody of the City of Oakland case files for nearly a year and allowed the trial to proceed knowing their liability and the legal impact of their fraudulent fabricated evidence in 1999 and planted that evidence favorable to the defendants in the case files SIX years AFTER the case was closed, engaged in spoliation of remainning evidence in the court files from 1991 where during the trial, testimony revealed that there were numerous documents and photos of a very damning nature to the defense that were missing, altered, or incomplete, and their unpardonable breach in the chain of custody of the City files.

Russo’s “Oakland Open Government” Public Service Announcement

In his Public Service Announcement entitled Oakland Open Government Russo touts his staff and points out Mark Morodomi and Michelle Abney, self-described as The Advocate for the Public. Morodomi states Citizens have a right to see documents. Russo explains the City motto is “Jus Por Popolo” meaning “Law in the Service of the Public” to give you the tools and the resources to compete fully in our local democracy.”

Russo proclaims he is passionate about his belief that “it is the government’s job to conduct the peoples business on behalf of the peolpe, accountable to the people, and in full viewof the people. That’s why I created Oakland’s first “Open Government” program.”

If City attorney John Russo and his proud personal appointee Mark Morodomi honestly believe “Jus Pro Populo-translated to Law in the service of the public”; that they truly are employees of and work for the Public as shareholders of the corporation called the City of Oakland; that the public is entitled to City records; they truly beleive in government accountability, transparency, and full disclosure in the publics right to know; that Russo wants to restore the publics faith in Government; why did Russo, Mark Morodomi, Randy Hall, Eliada Perez, Janie Wong, Anita Hong, Sophia Li, Elizabeth Allen, Erica Harrold, Demetruis Shelton and Michele Abney provide the case file to the defendants Stephan Barber and Ron Cook for nearly a year and then failed and refused to notify the court of this unpardonable illegal breach in the chain of custody of the file; while Russo and all the City Attorney’s employees has failed and refused to provide the information sought by al-Hakim, and further all have failed and refused to appear under court ordered subpeona for deposition testimony on two occassions and under court ordered subpeona for trial testimony?

John Russo “My Word- OpEd”,

“Police’s lawsuit against Oakland is shameful”

Also on his website is an “opEd- My Word” article as it ran printed in the Oakland Tribune newspaper October 21, 2008 by John Russo entitled “Police’s lawsuit against Oakland is shameful”, in which Russo laments the hard fact that a class action lawsuit, “instigated” by Mike Rains alleges “the lawsuit amounts to little more than a shakedown” and “if the lawsuit is successful, Oakland taxpayers will be on the hook for untold millions of dollars” in overtime to cops. Russo described it as “a particularly costly and brazen” lawsuit against the City of Oakland by Oakland Police Officers then complains “Incredibly, three of the lead plaintiffs were fired for cause: One for threatening an elderly couple with his service handgun, one for watching pornography while on duty and one for providing police investigation information to the criminals under investigation.” He further states it is ” a shameless move, a nickel and dime limesuit that Oakland has spent $317,000 defending and pleads with the public “Please don’t hesitate to contact me about this or any other issue”.

If Russo feels that it was proper to fire a police officer for giving police information to criminals under investigation, he should resign and pay punitive damages, restitution/sanctions and/or be fired for giving the entire case file to defendants Stephan Barber and Ron Cook for nearly a year and has engaged in acts to coverup these criminal litigation tactics, failed and refused to disclose to the court, nor inform the Judge of their improper and illegal transgressions regarding the fact the defendants alleged absconding with and taking custody of the City of Oakland files for nearly a year and allowed the trial to proceed knowing their liability and the legal impact of their fraudulent fabricated evidence in 1999 and planted that evidence favorable to the defendants in the files SIX years AFTER the case was closed, engaged in spoliation of remainning evidence in the court files from 1991 where during the trial, testimony revealed that there were numerous documents and photos of a very damning nature to the defense that were missing, altered, or incomplete, with their unpardonable breach in the chain of custody of the City files and as a direct and proximate result have caused al-Hakim and family to be forced from their $1+ million home, office, foreclosed from an over $20 million law suit, and multi million business for 12 years.

Russo’s Article “Stepping in to fill Oakland’s Power Vacuum”

by Byron Williams, Oakland Tribune

In an article printed in the Oakland Tribune July 12, 2008 by columnist Byron Williams entitled “Stepping in to fill Oakland’s Power Vacuum” he discusses Oakland City Attorney John Russo and City Auditor Courtney Ruby press conference unveiling their five-point reform package aimed at restoring public confidence in local government in the wake of allegations of nepotism and interfering with an ongoing police investigation by the former city administrator.

Russo’s “Real Oakland Administrative Reform” (ROAR)

According to Russo’s Web site, Real Oakland Administrative Reform (ROAR) is designed to “make city government more accountable, more transparent and more effective for the taxpayers of Oakland.”

ROAR includes:

1. A whistleblower protection ordinance.

2. A strong anti-nepotism ordinance.

3. Reform of flawed personnel department procedures to reduce taxpayer liability.

4. Reform of the city’s inadequate records management practices.

5. A new employee ethics program that includes mandatory ethics training for all supervisors.

Nothing like a few charges of ethics violations by a top city official splattered onto the front pages to get elected officials in a good-government frame of mind.

Though Russo, Ruby and Councilwoman Patricia Kernighan made it painstakingly clear the unspoken subtext of the press conference was to answer the question: Who is leading Oakland?

It was one of those nonverbal mutually agreed upon moments in a press conference when the journalist asks a question knowing in advance he or she will not get a straight answer and the elected official does not feel any obligation to step out of character by responding forthrightly.

Citing his role as an elected official, along with the city auditor, Russo sees both offices as independent watchdogs for the City. Russo reiterated that the reforms he and Ruby are proposing have been issues plaguing the city for years.

Ethics reform is not sexy stuff. It is only in the midst of ethics violations that it becomes an above-the-fold news item. In a city where frustration is trumping hope, Oakland is willing to grasp onto leadership wherever it can find it, even if it surrounds such mundane issues as ethics reform.

Why have they all failed and refused to provide the information sought by al-Hakim, and further failed and refused to appear under court ordered subpeona for deposition testimony twice and under court ordered subpeona for trial testimony?

If John Russo and the City can complain to a judge that “it is unconscioable to allow a tenant to go a single winter without heat, that their conscienioius would not allow them to do so”, how can he, Mark Morodomi, Randy Hall, Eliada Perez, Janie Wong, Anita Hong, Sophia Li, Demetruis Shelton, Elizabeth Allen, Erica Harrold and Michele Abney cause al-Hakim and family to be forced from their $1million plus home and office, foreclosed from an over $20 million law suit, and multi million business for 12 years thru the Oakland City Attorneys violation of the business and professional codes, extrinsic fraud, subornation of perjurious testimony, while committing these acts under the color of law with unclean hands, and should not be prosecuted to the full extent of the law!

Oakland City Attorney John Russo, Mark Morodomi, Randy Hall, Eliada Perez, Janie Wong, Anita Hong, Sophia Li, Demetruis Shelton, Elizabeth Allen, Erica Harrold and Michele Abney provided the case file to defendants Stephan Barber and Ron Cook for nearly a year and failed to notify the court of this unpardonable illegal breach in the chain of custody of the file in full participation and complicity in the defense’s litigation strategy as part of Russo’s self touted tactic of “lending the muscle and support of the city municipality to their case” in an effort to defeat al-Hakim; they all failed and refused to provide the information sought by al-Hakim, and further failed and refused to appear under court ordered subpeona for deposition testimony twice and under court ordered subpeona for trial testimony and have caused al-Hakim and family to be forced from their $1million plus home and office, foreclosed from an over $20 million law suit, and multi million business for 12 years thru the City Attorneys violation of the business and professional codes, extrinsic fraud, subornation of perjurious testimony, committing these acts under the color of law with unclean hands, and should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. He did this with the aid of this same army of City Officials!

If Oakland City Attorney John Russo sincerely feels “litigants should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law!”, should he, Mark Morodomi, Randy Hall, Eliada Perez, Janie Wong, Anita Hong, Sophia Li, Demetruis Shelton, Elizabeth Allen, Erica Harrold and Michele Abney not be prosecuted for their providing the case file to defendants Stephan Barber and Ron Cook for nearly a year and failed to notify the court of this unpardonable illegal breach in the chain of custody of the file; evading the many court ordered subpeonas to testify regarding their providing the case file to the defendants Stephan Barber and Ron Cook and failed to notify the court of this unpardonable illegal breach in the chain of custody; failing and refusing to provide the information sought by al-Hakim, and further failing and refusing to appear under court ordered subpeona for deposition testimony twice and under court ordered subpeona for trial testimony and have caused al-Hakim and family to be forced from their $1million plus home and office, foreclosed from an over $20 million law suit, and multi million business for 12 years thru the City Attorneys violation of the business and professional codes, extrinsic fraud, subornation of perjurious testimony, committing these acts under the color of law with unclean hands, and should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. He did this with the aid of this same army of City Officials!

As one can easily tell from the evidence provided herein Oakland City Attorneys John Russo, Mark Morodomi, Randy Hall, Eliada Perez, Janie Wong, Anita Hong, Sophia Li, Demetruis Shelton, Elizabeth Allen, Erica Harrold and Michele Abney has, as Russo put, “stayed on script” regarding their evading the many court ordered subpeonas to testify regarding their providing the case file to the defendants Stephan Barber and Ron Cook for nearly a year and failing and refusing to notify the court of this unpardonable illegal breach in the chain of custody of the file and avoid prosecution for violation of the business and professional codes, extrinsic fraud, subornation of perjurious testimony, while committing these acts under the color of law with unclean hands, and as a direct and proximate result have caused al-Hakim and family to be forced from their $1million plus home and office, foreclosed from an over $20 million law suit, and multi million business for 12 years thru the City Attorneys violation of the business and professional codes, extrinsic fraud, subornation of perjurious testimony, committing these acts under the color of law with unclean hands, and should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. He did this with the aid of this same army of City Officials!

If Oakland City Attorney John Russo truly believes “people are interseted in whats happening at City hall!” and Russo was “tharted from enacting change by the previous administration”, why didn’t he simply comply with the many written requests for information from al-Hakim or the demands of the three court ordered subpeonas for John Russo, Mark Morodomi, Randy Hall, Eliada Perez, Janie Wong, Anita Hong, Sophia Li, Demetruis Shelton, Elizabeth Allen, Erica Harrold and Michele Abney to testify at deposistion and trial regarding their providing the case file to defendants Stephan Barber and Ron Cook for nearly a year and failed to notify the court of this unpardonable illegal breach in the chain of custody of the file in full participation and complicity in the defense’s litigation startegy lending the muscle and support of the city municipality to their case in an effort to defeat al-Hakim; all failing and refusing to provide the information sought by al-Hakim, and as a direct and proximate result, have caused al-Hakim and family to be forced from their $1million plus home and office, foreclosed from an over $20 million law suit, and multi million business for 12 years thru the City Attorneys violation of the business and professional codes, extrinsic fraud, subornation of perjurious testimony, committing these acts under the color of law with unclean hands, and should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. He did this with the aid of this same army of City Officials! This would not have required any change from the previous administration and certainly was of interest to the public and al-Hakim.

if If Oakland City Attorney John Russo can claim “as licensed professionals in their field the Oak City attys can not claim ignorance”, that “they were warned and aware their behavior was illegal by al-Hakim, everybody knows that committing crimes and throwing a family out of their home for no reason is wrong”; why didn’t they simply comply with the many written requests for information from al-Hakim? How does he justify his, Mark Morodomi, Randy Hall, Eliada Perez, Janie Wong, Anita Hong, Sophia Li, Demetruis Shelton, Elizabeth Allen, Erica Harrold and Michele Abney evading the many court ordered subpeonas to testify regarding their providing the case file to the defendants Stephan Barber and Ron Cook for nearly a year and failing and refusing to notify the court of this unpardonable illegal breach in the chain of custody of the file and avoid prosecution for violation of the business and professional codes, extrinsic fraud, subornation of perjurious testimony, committing these acts under the color of law with unclean hands, and as a direct and proximate result have caused al-Hakim and family to be forced from their $1million plus home and office, foreclosed from an over $20 million law suit, and multi million business for 12 years thru the City Attorneys violation of the business and professional codes, extrinsic fraud, subornation of perjurious testimony, committing these acts under the color of law with unclean hands, and should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. He did this with the aid of this same army of City Officials!

Russo’s incredulous display of Racism, Bigotry, Hate, Islamophobia and self-annointed White Male Socio-Economic Class and Priviledge

Now lets view this video and disect Russo’s egreious display of extreme rascim and inhumanity; his repulsive display of cruel horrifying bigotry, hatred, and islamophobia; and regurgitate Russo’s incredulous display of self-percieved, self-annointed White Male Socio-Economic Class and Priviledge. Russo verbally exercises these demons as:

1) Russo feels that if he, as a white male City Attorney wrongs a black man, all Russo has to do is apologize, he tells the blackman to move on with his life, the matters forgotten and Russo goes on unscathed to harm others with his racist ways;

2) but Russo feels if the blackman is wrong, he will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. How more blantantly racist can Russo be!? Shouldn’t Russo also be prosecuted to the full extent of the law for his crimes? Why can’t the blackman simply apologize like Russo feels he can if he’s wrong? Russo was elected to enfocer equal justice under the law, not to evade and obstruct investigation nor offer apologies when he gets caught breaking the law. Russo is verbally excercising his perceived white male upper class priviledge and social economic status while engaging in selective prosecution and feels he’s above and immune to the law!

3) John Russo takes a blatant bigoted swipe at Muslims and Islam with a well known referrence of terrosist rethoric as Russo laughs while mocking muslims with this common referrence at a time when many feel it’s patriotic to slaughter Muslims around the world. This is a great display of John Russo’s bigotry, insensitivty, and true feelings of inhumanity toward man.

These revealing examples of the real John Russo that clearly exhibit his true beliefs as they pretain to blacks, minorities and racism; his being above the law with his self-percieved White Male Upper Class and Socio-Economic Priviledge; Bigotry and inciting Islamophobia in feeding fear and hatred of Islam and Muslims.
