11th Complaint to Judicial Council, Superior Court, Judges Association against Tigar

Tigar Tampered With Witness Testimony of The Honorable Judge Leo Dorado

On March 26, 2008 al-Hakim had scheduled the witness testimony of The Honorable Leo Dorado, Judge of the Superior Court, County of Alameda at 3:00 p.m. However, at 1:20 p.m. al-Hakim found Judge Dorado in the hallway outside the courtroom. al-Hakim was surprised to find him there until he told al-Hakim he was asked to come there by Tigar. Judge Dorado expressed that he was certainly surprised that he were told to come and knew nothing about the reasoning or purpose for which he was required to be present.

Both al-Hakm and Dorado were not surprised Tigar had done so as they had discussed Tigar’s desire to interfer with Dorado’s testimony months earlier that stemmed from al-Hakim’s encounter with Tigar during trial reddiness proceedings.

On February 1, 2008 at 9:00 AM Judge Tigar held a Trial Readiness Conference with the parties allegedly for the purpose of discussing the status of the case to determine when the actual trial will begin under compliance with rule 4.6. Tigar instead proceeds to limine motions where al-Hakim objects to Tigar hearing the limine motions and al-Hakim argued that it was unfair and improper for the court to proceed with ruling on these motions when he had not seen the documents. Tigar goes into the motions and at one point expressed that though al-Hakim’s arguments were compelling enough for him to consider, HE COULD rule against al-Hakim, not because the argument lacked merit, MERELY BECAUSE HE WANTED TO! al-Hakim again objects to Tigar ruling on the limine motions, and Tigar threatens al-Hakim with contempt for his objections to the limine motions as slowing down the court and threatens al-Hakim that he must not mention Tigar’s perjury or misconduct to the jury during the trial or al-Hakim will be in contempt. al-Hakim responded with the fact that his objections just as his speaking the truth of Tigar’s lying under oath would not be silenced by threats of contempt as al-Hakim is not making some groundless attack upon Tigar and again challenged Tigar to meet him in any venue, forum, tribunal, etc., and al-Hakim would prove Tigar has lied under oath, committed perjury, been dishonest, deceitful, committed prejudicial misconduct, etc. Tigar’s constant insidious threats of contempt is a dangerous premise upon which a fair and impartial judge would build any trust and reasonable expectation of justice or faith in his ability to rule and preside in any matter. The importance of a plaintiff to object in a trial or any matter and the denial and full foreclosure of that protective right by Tigar is a lethal assault on al-Hakim’s due process and civil rights.
The importance of a plaintiff to object in a trial or any matter and the denial and full foreclosure of that protective right by Tigar is a lethal assault on al-Hakim’s due process and civil rights. The law books are full of case where a party failed to object to an event in court, a ruling, admission, etc. and as a result implied that they had waived that right to protection from that event or error that could have protected their rights and interests. Tigar here attempts to FORCE al-Hakim at the threat of contempt to forego any rightful objection and in the process waive any defense to his ruthless actions as the defendant deputy defense counsel judge. More startling, having made the threat that al-Hakim must not object or mention his perjury to the jury or he will be in contempt, Tigar never once responded to any of al-Hakim’s objections thereafter.
Tigar did not respond and then goes on and until he gets to Defendant’s limine motion #7.
al-Hakim objects to Tigar hearing the limine motion, as that motion is granted, wherein Tigar states he’s ruling on these limine motions in a vacuum- he stops. al-Hakim states “you just ruled on 18 limine motions in a vacuum, but denied my(al-Hakim’s) suggestion that it be continued”.
Tigar then states that he has a question regarding al-Hakim’s witness list and identifies Leo Dorado from the witness list and asks if that is the Alameda County Superior Court judge. al-Hakim responded “the very same” and immediately Tigar tries to justify his need to contact judge Dorado regarding his testimony and al-Hakim, trying to prevent any implied witness tampering by Tigar, stated twice to Tigar that “we will arrange that between ourselves”. Unable to finesse his way to legally cause the desired improper ex-parte communication with Judge Dorado, Tigar rules that al-Hakim must now make an offer of proof on each witness on the witness list including length of testimony and importance and Tigar may use whatever criterion he choses to decide if they can testify.

Dorado and al-Hakim’s Relationship

Judge Dorado, an over 40 year friend, college sports teammate at Cal, resided in the same college dorm complex, and al-Hakim’s computer company handled the information systems software and computers for Dorado’s family accounting business for many years. They are family friends, dining together, and recently both participated in a basketball camp for former Cal star and NBA Champion Boston Celtic, Leon Powe. Dorado, a former pro basketball player in Europe, and al-Hakim founded the business of Sports and Entertainment Management and Marketing as the first Super Agent, have a very long and very close, personal and professional history together. Dorado was one of the several judges around the nation that reviewed al-Hakim’s Federal complaint filed with the United States Attorney General, Department of Justice, of a hate crime of Islamophobia and Xenophobia committed against him during a trial in Superior Court of Alameda County, California. See Federal Complaint by clicking here.USAGBrief-pdf

It was Dorado, then an Alameda County District Attorney prosecuting capital murder crimes, that al-Hakim went to when he knew his computer store was being burgularized by members of the Oakland Police Department and he could not complain to the police! That lead to an investigation directed by Matt Golde conducted by the DA’s office of these rogue police activities, with the trial conviction and gulity plea of two police officers. Matt Golde is the son of former Judge Stanley Golde. There was evidence of the involvement of over 15 police officers in these series of burgularies of businesses and the “fencing” of the stolen property. The problem was so rampant, even the Chief of Police George Hart had a stolen computer on his own desk at the station!!!

Tigar’s Indictment For Cause

al-Hakim informed Judge Dorado that he was being manipulated, and neither was not surprised, that this was Tigar’s way of trying to abort his testimony, to provide a way out for the defendants key witness not to testify and paint a picture of al-Hakim being an incorrigible scrouge and liar as a pretense to conduct his own investigation to establish the same.
Tigar’s assertion that Dorado’s staff contacted his staff was his ingress to fulfill his coveted and covert motive to conduct his improper investigation. The court was already set for Dorado’s testimony with the time that he personally chose to fit his own busy schedule at 3:00 p.m. There would have been no need to change or confirm anything with the court since he was al-Hakim’s witness, not the courts, and they- Judge Dorado and al-Hakim, not the court, arranged that time. al-Hakim’s records show that there were three letters(two faxed, two hand delivered), two emails with responses, two voicemail communications between the offices, and one personal meeting to arrange Judge Dorado’s testimony.
Tigar’s questioning of Judge Dorado being subpoenaed and if he could have come at a different time was his attempt to further demonize al-Hakim and one could not help but notice the complete shock on Tigar’s face when Judge Dorado responded that he was not subpoenaed and was testifying of his own volition!
Tigar’s inappropriate inquiry as an unjudicial foray upon al-Hakim’s integrity failed to justify that means so he resorted to save face by stating after Judge Dorado left that he found that Dorado could have come at a different time and as such al-Hakim was lying to the court. Both al-Hakim and Judge Dorado already knew that it was not true.

Judge Dorado Supported Charges Tigar’s Questioning and Inappropriate Inquiry Was Unjudicial Foray Upon al-Hakim’s Integrity
Tigar states in his answer to his 4th Challenge for Cause that “I have not had or sought to have any improper ex patte communication with any witness or other judge in this proceeding. In particular, Plaintiffs allegation that I sought to have an improper ex parte communication with Judge Dorado is false. (Striking Order page B-6, ¶ 12) “Click here to view or download the 4th Challenge For Cause Against Dishonored Judge Jon Tigar For Disqualification”
Again, this answer is knowingly false, perjurious, and fraudulently that seeks to avoid Tigar having to give truthful answers that would incriminate him. To be precise the unanswered charges and evaded citations mentioned herein are all true and verified by Tigar’s intentional omission as they are unopposed, uncontroverted, irrefutable, uncontested factual evidence support and demand his disqualification.
Tigar engineered the investigation into the availability of Judge Leo Dorado, Dr. Michael LeNoir, and lawyer/economist/accountant Michael Ferguson and Marvin Tate at trial under the guise of determining if they could have appeared at another time to testify in his efforts to stash witness Ron Cook.
His staff later contacted Judge Dorado and he was forced to appear before Tigar in a hostile environment hours before he was scheduled to appear to testify. Judge Dorado informed Tigar that he was appearing of his own volution and he had selected the date and time.
Tigar states in his answer to his 4th Challenge for Cause that “During the February 1, 2008 hearing, I was attempting to anticipate all of the case management issues that might present themselves during the trial. Once I determined that plaintiff intended to call Judge Leo Dorado, I anticipated that Judge Dorado might attempt to prevent or defer his testimony because of the limitations on judges’ ability to testify. (See, e.g., Evid. Code, * 703.5 [judge in proceeding generally not competent to testify concerning that proceeding]; Code Jud. Ethics, Canon 2B(2) [judge shall not testify as a character witness]; see also D. Rothman, California Judicial Conduct Handbook (3rd ed. 2007 [suggesting that judges avoid testifying in a contested proceeding to avoid giving the appearance that the judge is lending the prestige of the office to one side or the other, and suggesting that judges consider alternatives to testifying in person].) (Striking Order page B-6, ¶ 13)”

Tigar sat back in his chair and asked Judge Dorado if he had selected the time he was to testify, whether he could have come at a different time, whether he was subpoenaed, if he was willingly to testify of his own volition.
Judge Dorado supported al-Hakim’s charges that Tigar’s questioning and inappropriate inquiry was an unjudicial foray upon al-Hakim’s integrity and his desire to portray al-Hakim as a liar! Judge Dorado had selected the time he was to testify, and he alone decided whether he could have come at a different time, stated he was not subpoenaed, and he was willingly to testify of his own volition. He confirmed that over a course of three months the records show that there were three letters(two faxed, two hand delivered), two emails with responses, two voicemail communications between al-Hakim and Judge Dorado, and one personal meeting to arrange his testimony. Dorado also said that he had reviewed the questions al-Hakim had prepared before he appeared and found them acceptable and saw no reason judicially why he could not testify.

Tigar’s Nulification of Trial

Tigar’s Attempted to Provoke and Taunt al-Hakim at Sidebar During Judge Leo Dorado’s Testimony With “I’m Judge Dorado now!” Comment

When al-Hakim resummed the actual testimony of Judge Dorado, Tigar then attempted to provoke and taunt al-Hakim at sidebar during Judge Leo Dorado’s testimony.

At one of the sidebars during Judge Dorado’s testimony, Tigar decide that he did not want Judge Dorado to testify about the LaCerte software exhibit because the defendants claimed that they feared that Dorado may answer questions regarding matters that the court had feared al-Hakim might go into. Tigar had previously voiced a great fear of Dorado’s answers relative to the many illegal actions of other Judges and attorneys in this and the underlying case. After Tigar repeatedly denying Judge Dorado’s testimony, even on his own exhibits, in his grandest effort to provoke and taunt al-Hakim, during one sidebar Tigar leaned back in his chair with a big grin and said “I’m Judge Dorado now!” Reiterating the fact that he was in control of Judge Dorado’s entire testimony and was effectively aborting it. al-Hakim asked Tigar to repeat what he said and he merely ignored al-Hakim, as al-Hakim said “I wished the microphones were working to record these statements.”

Tigar must answer “did he make the I’m Judge Dorado now!” comment at sidebar during Judge Leo Dorado’s testimony? If so, why?
Tigar must answer “what was the purpose the “I’m Judge Dorado now!” comment at sidebar?
Tigar must answer the charges that al-Hakim asked Tigar to repeat the “I’m Judge Dorado now!” comment and he merely ignored al-Hakim, as al-Hakim said “I wished the microphones were working to record these statements.” ?
Tigar must answer al-Hakim’s charges that Tigar’s questioning of Judge Dorado being subpoenaed and if he could have come at a different time was Tigar’s attempt to further demonize him as some reckless, out of control, lying, angry n*##&^ who is causing trouble in the judicial ranks?
Tigar must answer al-Hakim’s charges that Tigar’s questioning and inappropriate inquiry was an unjudicial foray upon al-Hakim’s integrity and his desire to portray al-Hakim as a liar that failed to justify that means so Tigar resorted to save face by stating that he found that Judge Dorado could have come at a different time and as such he determined al-Hakim was lying to the court!

Tigar tampering with witness Judge Leo Dorado was predicted by al-Hakim and that fact was shared with Dorado nearly two months earlier, that Tigar never wanted him to testify and he was going to manufacture a way to tamper with him as a witness and furtively created a way to do so without any justification. Tigar ruled that al-Hakim must make an offer of proof on each witness on the witness list including length of
testimony and importance and Tigar could use whatever criterion he choses to decide if they could testify.
Weeks before Tigar stated in open court that according to the laws and the Canons that he planned to assert Evidence Code 1101 and Judicial Cannon 2(b)(2) while ruling judge Dorado could not effectively testify regarding any issue in this matter and if al-Hakim were to ask any questions that attested to his character, credibility, or any other relevant matters Tigar found objectionable that remotely delved into any issue that solely in his discretion was a gray area, he would interpret that as al-Hakim’s willful act of contempt, whether it was or not, and al-Hakim would be willfully ignoring a court order and subject to contempt on the spot and punishable with jail! Judge Dorado testified that he reviewed the questions and had no problem with them as a judge or civilian. Tigar said this after he noticed that Leo Dorado was on al-Hakim’s witness list and asked directly if it was Superior Court Judge Leo Dorado, to which al-Hakim replied: “the very same”.

al-Hakim Letter to The Honorable Leo Dorado

(click here to see letter)

On March 28, 2008 al-Hakim faxed and mailed a letter to The Honorable Leo Dorado, Judge of the Superior Court, County of Alameda regarding his witness testimony at trail, why he was being manipulated, that this was Tigar’s way of trying to abort his testimony, to provide a way out for the defendants key witness not to testify and paint a picture of al-Hakim being an incorrigible scrouge and liar as a pretense to conduct his own investigation to establish the same.

Here is an excerpt from a letter al-Hakim to Judge Leo Dorado after his testimony:
DATE: March 28, 2008
RE: Denied Trial Testimony
Dear Judge Dorado:
I want to humbly “Thank you” again for taking your very precious time on Wednesday, March 26, 2008 to appear in an attempt to testify on my behalf at the CSAA insurance company bad faith trial. There are no words that can describe my sincerest gratitude for your support. As you were made aware over a month ago, Judge Jon Tigar in Department 21 of Superior Court, County of Alameda, never wanted you to testify and he was going to manufacture a way to tamper with you as a witness and furtively created a way to do so without any justification.
Unable to finesse his way to legally cause the desired improper ex-parte communication with you, Tigar rules that I must make an offer of proof on each witness on the witness list including length of testimony and importance and Tigar could use whatever criterion he choses to decide if they can testify. In a futile gesture as such, you were allowed to take the stand but not to answer any questions. Weeks before you took the stand he stated that according to the laws and the Canons that he planned to assert Evidence Code 1101 and Judicial Cannon 2(b)(2) while ruling you could not effectively testify regarding any issue in this matter and if I were to ask any questions that attested to my character, credibility, or any other relevant matters he found objectionable that remotely delved into any issue that solely in his discretion was a gray area, he would interpret that as my willful act of contempt, whether it was or not, and I would be willfully ignoring a court order and subject to contempt on the spot and punishable with jail. Let me give you some background on the conduct of Tigar, some of which you know, in the next five instances as follows:
I was surprised to see you at 1:20 p.m. in the hallway outside the courtroom until you told me you were asked to come there by the judge. You certainly were surprised that you were told to come and knew nothing about the reasoning for which you were being manipulated. I told you then this was his way of trying to abort your testimony, to provide a way out for the defendants key witness not to testify and paint a picture of my being an incorrigible scrouge and liar as a pretense to conduct his own investigation to establish the same.
When he had you sworn and began his questioning of you by prefacing his comments with the assertion that your staff contacted his staff to ascertain what time the court wanted you to testify was his ingress to fulfill his coveted and covert motive to conduct his improper investigation. How did the contact come about between the two offices? Did someone pass on a message for your office/staff to contact Judge Tigar’s staff? We were already set for your testimony with the time that you personally chose to fit your own busy schedule at 3:00 p.m. There would have been no need to change or confirm anything with the court since you were my witness, not the courts, and we- you and I, not the court, arranged that time. My records show that there were three letters(two faxed, two hand delivered), two emails with responses, two voicemail communications between the offices, and one personal meeting to arrange your testimony.

His questioning of your being subpoenaed and if you could have come at a different time was his attempt to further demonize me as some reckless, out of control, lying, angry n*##&^ who is causing trouble in the judicial ranks! You could not help but notice the complete shock on his face when you responded that you were not subpoenaed. His cockiness dissipated even more so when you responded that you were going to testify willingly of your own volition! His inappropriate inquiry as an unjudicial foray upon my integrity failed to justify that means so he resorted to save face by stating after you left that he found that you could have come at a different time and as such I was lying to the court. Although I already know that you know that is not true, let me tell you what happened.”
