The following is the fourth installment of this series, which recounts what many people who have not (yet) experienced our wonderful legal system will find totally unbelievable.  It is a portion of a criminal complaint that I've tried to put in front of the special grand jury.  The person I'm writing about in this particular segment, Louise DeCarl Adler, is a judge for the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of California.

Lies Told

Judge Adler lied to me in the March 18, 2021, telephonic conference when she said she was “first hearing of wrongdoing” by Mihelic.  This is completely false.  I informed her of wrongdoing during the hearing of January 14, 2021; in my petition for writ of mandamus filed on January 20, 2021; in my OBJECTION TO “PLAINTIFF UNITED STATES TRUSTEE’S SECOND MOTION TO EXTEND DISCOVERY DEADLINES AS TO THE UNITED STATES TRUSTEE” dated March 3, 2021; in my REPLY TO “UNITED STATES TRUSTEE’S RESPONSE TO MOTION TO COMPEL DISCLOSURE AND FOR SANCTIONS, AND REQUEST FOR REIMBURSEMENT OF EXPENSES” dated March 4, 2021; and in many other court pleadings and related documents.

Judge Adler lied to me in another telephonic conference when she said, “This isn’t a criminal trial.  You don’t get a lawyer appointed to you,” or something very similar.  However, 28 U.S. Code § 1915(e)(1) says otherwise: “The court may request an attorney to represent any person unable to afford counsel.”  Moreover, the U.S. Supreme Court case Maness v. Meyers made clear that the appointing of counsel for low-income people in certain civil cases is not optional—but mandatory—and “that counsel must be appointed for any indigent witness, whether or not he is a party, in any proceeding in which his testimony can be compelled.”  Judge Adler had already compelled my testimony.

Regarding the above federal law, Judge Adler also lied in her tentative ruling of March 29, 2021, when she said, “Sec. 1951(e)(1) [sic] is not relevant here as it relates only to prisoners.”  In this same ruling, she also lied about me not communicating with Mihelic.  Yet again in this same ruling, Judge Adler lied about the date I filed my Motion to Compel Disclosure and for Sanctions.

The lies continue unabated in the same tentative ruling—just one ruling peppered with at least nine lies, five of which are shown here.  Judge Adler said that “evidence he attaches in support (an email chain) has been altered to make it appear that he offered deposition times beginning at 10:00 AM.”  She also repeated the lie but in a different way when she said that Defendant “stated he was only available from 7:00PM through 10:00 PM.”  Once again, this is entirely untrue.  I have the email sitting in my sent mail folder that proves it.  I did in fact offer times at 10am.  See attached proof on page 24.  What I did was copied and pasted evidence from two emails onto one page with regard to the “UST’s status report [ECF 74]” to which Judge Adler is referring—and which Mihelic previously submitted.  The Department of Injustice falsely accused me (yet again).  So, what we have here now is one of the criminals lying and the other swearing by it.  Judge Adler has lied many other times, but these are not included in order to keep this complaint as brief as possible.

Unlikely Mathematical Odds

Perhaps the most striking evidence against Judge Adler is that she has ruled twenty-two consecutive times against me whenever Mihelic has opposed me.  Odds of this purely happening by chance and without bias or external influence are 1 in 4,194,304, or less than 0.00002 percent.  Incidentally, all told since the beginning of the civil case in Massachusetts, the world’s largest crime syndicate has ruled against me fifty-one consecutive times whenever I have been opposed.  Odds now become 1 in 2,251,799,813,685,248.  The chance of hitting Powerball is 7,706,328 times greater since the odds of winning that particular lottery are only 1 in 292,201,338.

Conclusions of Law Based Solely on False Claims by Mihelic

Judge Adler repeatedly relied on false information from Mihelic to make rulings and issue orders.  In effect, she has made conclusions of law based on Mihelic’s lies.  One such example concerns a ruling entered on April 29, 2021.  This is just one example.

Predetermining the Outcome of the Case without Evidence

Similar to WWE, Judge Adler has played the role of Vince McMahon in predetermining the outcome of my case.  She did this by ignoring facts and evidence and relied solely on lies from Mihelic to prevent my discharge and quite likely received a phone call from Michaud.  I knew nearly a year ago exactly where this case was going based upon the extreme level of fraud and corruption manifesting itself once again.

Mihelic’s Misconduct and Criminal Acts Not Only Condoned.....but Me Chastised for Bringing Them to Light

The evidence I’ve presented in the case thus far, including this complaint, the court record, and elsewhere, reveals Judge Adler’s cavalier attitude towards misconduct and criminal acts—offenses that are perfectly fine if the offender is on the “right team.”  She simply doesn’t want to hear about any wrongdoing by government personnel, although she is quick to falsely charge me every chance she gets.  This alone is more than sufficient to sanction the judge, if not mandate suspension and/or immediate removal from the bench.  Perhaps best illustrating Adler’s detestable attitude towards me is my favorite quote by Doctor Ron Paul: “Truth is treason in the empire of lies.”


Violations of the Code of Conduct for United States Judges (hereinafter “the code”) are now described in the following subsections.

Canon 2: A Judge Should Avoid Impropriety and the Appearance of Impropriety in All Activities

Section “A” of this part of the code clearly states, “Respect for Law.  A judge should respect and comply with the law and should act at all times in a manner that promotes public confidence in the integrity and impartiality of the judiciary” (emphasis added).  Because of Judge Adler’s overt bias in the instant case and because she has disregarded both federal statutory and case law and trampled the U.S. Constitution multiple times, she has obviously violated this canon.

Additionally, section “B” of this part of the code states, “Outside Influence.  A judge should not allow family, social, political, financial, or other relationships to influence judicial conduct or judgment.  A judge should neither lend the prestige of the judicial office to advance the private interests of the judge or others nor convey or permit others to convey the impression that they are in a special position to influence the judge” (emphasis added).  Rest assured that unredacted phone records from March 1, 2020, to July 1, 2020, if they could be obtained, would reveal an outside influence.  Judge Adler is concealing the fact that she communicated with Michaud, probably within the first couple weeks of my bankruptcy filing, when he contacted her and asked her to block my bankruptcy as a favor to him.  I know a call was made and state this not only based on the evidence presented in the Violation of 28 U.S. Code § 1930 (f)(1) subsection above but also based on the evidence presented in statement number 10 on page 3.

Canon 3: A Judge Should Perform the Duties of the Office Fairly, Impartially and Diligently

This canon of the code mandates that “The judge should perform those duties with respect for others, and should not engage in behavior that is harassing, abusive, prejudiced, or biased” (emphasis added).  From the preceding in this complaint, it is quite clear this canon has been violated.  Subsection (A)(1) of this canon goes further: “A judge should be faithful to, and maintain professional competence in, the law” (emphasis added).  Once again, from the preceding in this complaint, there is no question that this canon has been violated.

From subsection (A)(4): “A judge should accord to every person who has a legal interest in a proceeding, and that person’s lawyer, the full right to be heard according to law.  Except as set out below, a judge should not initiate, permit, or consider ex parte communications or consider other communications concerning a pending or impending matter that are made outside the presence of the parties or their lawyers.  If a judge receives an unauthorized ex parte communication bearing on the substance of a matter, the judge should promptly notify the parties of the subject matter of the communication and allow the parties an opportunity to respond, if requested” (emphasis added), it is evident this canon has been violated.

If the minutes of the phone conferences between Judge Adler and me are reviewed, it will become apparent that she has consistently shut me down and prevented me from making my claims and submitting evidence, which is contrary to this portion of the canon.  Regarding ex parte communication, it is a near certainty that this has happened between her and Michaud.

The wording of subsection (B)(6), “A judge should take appropriate action upon receipt of reliable information indicating the likelihood that a judge’s conduct contravened this Code, that a judicial employee’s conduct contravened the Code of Conduct for Judicial Employees, or that a lawyer violated applicable rules of professional conduct” (emphasis added), dictates that judges should act whenever information is given about a lawyer who violated rules of professional conduct.  During the phone conference of January 14, 2021, I informed her that Mihelic has repeatedly lied and perjured herself at least once.  Proof of her wrongdoings can be found not only previously in this complaint but also at http://www.stloiyf.com/mihelic/complaint.htm.  Judge Adler gave no indication that she would take any action and instead completely ignored what I said.

Under subsection (1) of section (C), Disqualification, the canon reads as follows: “A judge shall disqualify himself or herself in a proceeding in which the judge’s impartiality might reasonably be questioned…” and continues under subsection (a) of this subsection: “the judge has a personal bias or prejudice concerning a party…” It is crystal clear that Judge Adler hates me because, of course, I hate injustice, yet she has made no effort to disqualify herself from the instant case and furthermore has wrongly denied my motion for recusal.


I am fighting to stay financially afloat and hanging by the thinnest of threads.  I earn less than 1/12 of what Mihelic and Judge Adler make.  They are doing their very best to force me to live on the street, which I do not want to do.  They are not concerned with justice and are trying their hardest to ignore all evidence of true fraud and corruption regarding my bankruptcy and its predecessor, a civil case in the Taunton District Court in Massachusetts, in order to protect their new friends in Rhode Island and Massachusetts.  Just because they refuse to acknowledge fraud, corruption, and crime does not mean fraud, corruption, and crime do not exist.  In fact, they are active participants in all such wrongdoing.  The evidence is overwhelming and crystal clear as can be seen at http://www.stloiyf.com/blog/post/corruption-in-the-massachusetts-courts/; in the open letter found at the third link provided in this complaint; on pages 32, 46, 51, 52, and 224-229 of Stack the Legal Odds in Your Favor; in many of the Massachusetts court records; and in the evidence and pleadings I have submitted to the bankruptcy court, some of which have been provided as part of this complaint.

Everything I have done regarding the instant case has been pro se—not by choice but because no lawyer will take it.  There is just too much corruption, and system members like to pretend that corruption in their industry does not exist.  This is true particularly for lawyers since they view accepting such matters and acknowledging the corruption as biting the hand that feeds them.  The government has a team of several people working against me, but they still manage to reply tardily to my emails and file late.  I emailed a set of interrogatories and a request for production of documents to Mihelic on November 7, 2020.  A partial response arrived on January 3, 2021, nearly a month late.  On the other hand, I am a team of one, yet I manage to file everything timely or early.  Anything that I have not filed “timely” in the eyes of Mihelic or Judge Adler has been because of errors/misbehavior on their part.

The difference between me and any other party associated with the five or so cases related to the civil matter that initiated this whole saga, the civil case in the Taunton District Court in Massachusetts, is that I can prove 100 percent of everything that I am putting forth—not 75 percent, not 90 percent, not 99 percent—but 100 percent.  No other party associated with any of these cases will be able to prove 100 percent of their claims—not even close.

I am tired of Mihelic’s and Judge Adler’s lies, violations of the rules and law, and other transgressions.  Judge Adler has taken no action against Mihelic and, in fact, has not ruled against her once in eighteen rulings because they are friends.  They illegally worked in concert to steer their adversarial proceeding in my bankruptcy in the direction they wanted it to go.  When things seem to be coincidences in the legal system, they are usually not.  To the contrary, they are usually well orchestrated.  As I get older, my tolerance for injustice and corruption wanes more and more, whether directed at me or anyone else.  Punishment for those entrusted with upholding the law should be more severe than that of the average person, not less severe (or non-existent) as it is when administered directly by the system itself.

My bankruptcy case should have never gotten out of the starting blocks.  That is because the fraudulent judgment should have never been issued in Massachusetts in the first place.  However, it has.  Nonetheless, Mihelic should not have filed the adversary proceeding against me.  If she or Judge Adler had any real interest in justice and was not part of the entire fraudulent scheme, both would have looked into the evidence I offered to provide as I stated in my email on May 13, 2020, and that I did provide in the third link in this complaint via the open letter to the court.  See attached proof on pages 36 and 37.

According to the U.S. Attorney with whom I spoke on January 11, 2021, crimes can only be prosecuted after evidence has been presented to a federal agency and that agency then submits a case to the attorney’s office.  However, the known crimes that have been committed after the filing of my bankruptcy petition—and some beforehand—fall within the purview of the Department of Injustice, which is the very organization responsible for some of the crimes, or the Federal Bureau of Iniquity, which is the very organization that refused to investigate the criminal complaint I filed back in July of 2017.

The evidence that fraud and corruption have spread from the originating case in Massachusetts into the instant case is indisputable.  I was aptly given fee waivers all eight other times after filing my bankruptcy petition.  I was unjustly prevented access to records containing phone numbers and duration of calls both in a subpoena and in my request for production of documents.  At least seven pleadings related to preventing discharge have been filed by “creditors” I do not even know, but the only criminal/“creditor” I listed in my petition—and who fought me relentlessly and illegally in Massachusetts—has not made a single peep and has filed nothing whatsoever with the court.  If still not convinced, the icing on the cake is the fact that the government is fighting tooth and nail, although now in vain, to prevent me from coming before a jury in order to keep the fraud and corruption hidden.  They know that I will expose everything and that they will have no chance of winning if I do and as I have now evidently done with this complaint.

Judge Adler has violated the U.S. criminal code and is responsible for a mountain of misconduct.  The problem I’ve faced throughout my bankruptcy and even in prior related cases is that none of the entities responsible for the fraud, corruption, and crime are willing to investigate themselves or their sister organizations.  Today’s American legal system can’t possibly consist entirely of criminals—there’s no way.  There has to be at least some small fragment of individuals with morals remaining.  I am hopeful of this but not certain.  I am hopeful because I have better things to do than fight the world’s largest crime syndicate all day long.  I’ve spent well over 7,000 hours of my life doing it.

The courts have failed me.  The system has failed me.  The government has failed me.  None of these entities have shown any interest in justice or the desire to do the right thing.  I am asking you good people of the jury to do the right thing now and not sweep this travesty of justice under the rug like the system has done for well over a decade.  Please simply look at the evidence, which is as plain as day, and act according to it.  If you do, it will become apparent that the only way justice can be served is to punish Judge Adler and Mihelic—if not by bringing criminal charges against them then perhaps by recommending that they be removed from office or that they at least be suspended for a minimum of one year so that they can get a glimpse of what it is like to struggle as I have over the last several years.  Judge Adler—truly a criminal in a black gown—should be significantly sanctioned monetarily along with Mihelic.  Adler should be removed from the bench and Mihelic should be fired from her position, if not both thrown in prison where they belong.

This story and much more will be in my upcoming book, Our American Injustice System, which launches April 1, 2022.  A 1-question survey about this entire case is available on this web page.
