…up the ladder does it go? In New York State the State Reporter is the one responsible for publishing court decisions that appear online, on websites such as westlaw, or justia.com. Appellant decisions from the appellant courts are mandated to be published pursuant to Judiciary Law 431. In western New York that would be the 4th department in Rochester (as well as the Court of Appeals). However, when it comes to county, supreme, town and village courts, known as trial courts, Judiciary Law 431 states that “any cause determined in any other court which the state reporter, with the approval of the court of appeals, considers worthy of being reported because of its usefulness as a precedent or its importance as a matter of public interest.”, or “unless otherwise directed by the court deciding the cause”…guess which lower court case was published?… Continue reading
On August 31, 2017, a victim of the overwhelming corruption that has been uncovered in Cattaraugus County New York, home of the most corrupt court system in the State of New York and possibly the United States was told by Cattaraugus County Court Clerk Jane St John he was not allowed to review his court record anymore because it was in appeal. First of all it was not in appeal and second the public has the right to review any court record they please. There are some exceptions to this right such as family court and sealed records where the general public is not allowed access to, however the parties involved are.

Cattaraugus County Chief Court Clerk Verna Dry Rigs Jury case. ONE JUROR DEAD SINCE 2010. 50% of the jury were local government employees, and another 16% were related to them, or had a predisposed bias. The ‘judge’ even appointed a county employee the jury foreperson who lives in the small town of Portville New York, the same location of the Assistant District Attorney is from to ensure guilty verdict. You haven’t seen a rigged jury until you sit in on a trial in Cattaraugus County New York…. Judge Claims it’s a Conspiracy and he doesn’t swear in the jury! This is all on the certified public record folks, and then some….
We have a fellow citizen, Stephen Schindlbeck, who lost his life at the hands of our public servants. He was going to be charged with a two felonies yet he had harmed no one, unlike Catherine Ensell who is a very violent individual and her daddy John always covers up for her. This alleged suicide occurred in the Olean Jail. Do we remember the three suicides in the Cattaraugus County Jail that took place in a period of six months in 2014 and not a word about what became of it? And what about the Metcalf murder investigation that ‘DA’ Lori Rieman is in ‘charge’ of? There are some very concerning twists in the recent ‘suicide’ in the Olean Jail… Continue reading
02MAY17: “Deputy” Tonya Dry at it again. She is related to Verna Dry, the Cattaraugus County Chief Court Clerk and Joseph Dry, the former Little Valley Town Justice who initiated CPL 730.30 proceeding against Mr. Christopher Kochan that led to his false arrest and sending to two separate mental health facilities which Mr. Kochan was promptly released within 24 hours and the Doctor of record admonished the judge who signed the order for sending Mr. Kochan there. Tonya Dry acts a dictator at the Cattaraugus County Building when citizens attempt to exercise their rights, which Mr. Kochan was attempting to exercise his JL 255 and FOIL rights. In the later part of April 2017 Mr. Kochan went to inspect the court files with a witness concerning two separate ongoing cases against Mr. Kochan at the county court level dealing with the same charges for the same “transaction” pursuant to CPL 40.20, which is a violation of Mr. Kochan’s double jeopardy rights. Mr. Kochan noticed a blonde female public employee who works for the District Attorney’s Office appear in the Court Clerks Office when they were inspecting the file. The same public employee appeared on may 2nd, 2017 when Mr. Kochan “visited” the courthouse to ask Chief Court Clerk Verna Dry to sign a JL 255 certification letter she had forgot to sign concerning CD disks that were missing from the file 19720….

Their latest conduct will cause more lawsuit issues and more burden on the taxpayers of this County… Their latest escapades is one for the history books… Continue reading
