Welcome to NFOJA's Learning Center!

Scroll down to read background reports, proposed legislation . . .

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.

The need for effective citizen oversight of the judiciary as well as other problems with the justice system is well outlined.  For some unknown reason, the 10th Amendment is largely neglected.

There is no rule of law without meaningful citizen oversight. For those who figure our way takes too long . . .

For appropriate judicial accountability in America, we Americans rely on government systems controlled by people who have little incentive to provide us appropriate judicial accountability. It’s imperative to reconcile that control with our U.S. Constitution’s delegation of power. Beyond some limited provisions for sovereign immunity, the power to insulate itself from accountability is not specifically delegated to U.S. state or federal government by our U.S. Constitution. So, government may seize upon that power in America, beyond our Constitution’s specific provisions for sovereign immunity, only to the extent necessary to properly function, i.e. function in accord with the Constitution. When U.S. government (which is different from rogue government agents) persists in exceeding those bounds, American citizens can collectively acquiesce to the situation or redress it by lawful means. Proper recourse does not include resorts to mob rule whereby “the people” control America’s judicial branches in disregard for the function(s) prescribed to and/or envisioned for them by our U.S. Constitution. Like it or not, as a group, lawyers and judges are very influential in defining that function or those functions — some lawyers/judges more than others.

Many people seek our help in overcoming organized U.S. legal system abuse. Yes, we must wage those fights, but they are much like tackling brick walls, and that fact alone violates America's human rights treaty obligations. The U.S. is pledged and…
