National Forum On Judicial Accountability (NFOJA) is a grassroots, legislative initiative to vest randomly selected, trained, and rotating panels of private citizens with responsibility for state judicial disciplinary processes.  The concept has two basic premises:


  • The first is that “(r)estoring the Rule of Law when breached is an obligation of and should directly involve all Americans.”

  • The second is that for the judicial branch of each U.S. state to competently interpret laws, determine their meaning, and settle disputes -- their judges need not self-discipline.

Through community forums, NFOJA:

  • proposes a shift of America’s judicial oversight mechanisms to allow more direct citizen involvement in the resolution of judicial misconduct claims;
  • justifies that shift based on balance of power considerations between average Americans and judges;

  • makes clear that an imbalance of power results between judges and other Americans when judges directly or substantially control all the government processes for challenging their official conduct; and

  • distinguishes our concern about that imbalance of power from considerations of judicial corruption and related abuses of power.


NFOJA officially launched on October 29, 2009

I'm not sure exactly where and how to communicate the following for inclusion in the United Nations communication.  I understand that they don't want evidence of illegal oppression of individuals unless there are multiple victims. Thus, they are claiming that they don't want evidence of my being imprisoned with no evidentiary hearing, no criminal charge and no bail hearing, since this DOJ activity was unusual.  However, what I do have is emails to me from two different US Courts clerks explaining that there is a court policy of not allowing post judgment motions by pro se litigants.  That's a violation of the UN covenant I think as well as a violation of the Rules Enabling Act since these policies were not published for public comment or to warn pro se litigants.

This case went to Federal Court because of some Constitutional issues regarding the spouse and he felt he was being conspired against. Alabama Federal Court didn't think so, I try to follow weird cases like this because these things matter when it comes to fair and impartial courts. The judge later stepped off the case handing it over to one of the judges below him either way the guy was screwed.

My parents appeared before the judge in this case on a property dispute, this judge yelled at my mom and dad calling them "liars" in open court. This judge has also been known to throw chairs at counsel and litigants. My parents are good hard working citizens and by no means did they deserve the treatment they got from this judge. I don't follow this particular judges cases, but when they involve two judges within the same county, same court system I do. These two judges share cases passing them back and fourth between each other. I don't understand the whole process of the judicial system, but I am learning. I think that it is important to everyone within our society to KNOW whether or not they are being shafted so they can do something about it early on before they have to put their homes up for sale in order to receive justice.
