According to Wikipedia the RICO ACT is a United States Federal Law that provides for extended criminal penalties and a civil cause of action for acts performed as part of an ongoing criminal organization. The RICO Act focuses specifically on racketeering, and it allows for the leaders of a syndicate to be tried for the crimes which they ordered others to do or assisted them, closing a perceived loophole that allowed someone who told a man to, for example, murder, to be exempt from the trial because they did not actually do it.
Reports from the December, 2009 California Judicial Council Report to State Legislature and May, 2009 CSAC Summary of SBX 2 11 show that 90% of the 1,900 Superior Court judges in 34 counties have taken judicial benefits [illegal payments – descrobed bu Richard Fine as “bribes”] in addition to their state compensation.
Richard Fine described the judicial offenses involving 90% of California Judges among them as:
- Repeatedly taking illegal payments from parties appearing before them
- Denial of Due Process by failure to disclose those payments to litigants
- Obstruction of Justice
- Misprison of Felony
- Extrinsic Fraud
