Judge Edward M. Chen, a federal district court judge in the Northern District of California, demonstrated very real bias during a hearing in 2017. Chen’s bias came through loud and clear when he made a statement captured on an iPhone when he thought no record was being made.
Federal court rules require judges to schedule a court reporter to record hearings, or, at a minimum, switch on the court’s recording equipment. Chen did neither because Judges don’t always want a record of what goes down in federal court.
The incident of bias occurred on July 29, 2017, when Judge Chen was presiding over a routine case management conference in the lawsuit Paul Somers v. Digital Realty & Ellen Jacobs. Plaintiff, Paul Somers, appeared in court without representation because his lawyers at Outten & Golden had mysteriously quit after a single phone call with Digital Realty’s lawyers. They quit despite holding a large chunk of Mr. Somers money as a retainer. Outten & Golden was being paid hourly and had just started representation. The same thing happened with other law firms. In total, it happened four times with four separate law firms. Somers later discovered evidence that Digital Realty’s insurance company, Chubb, was defending the lawsuit on Digital’s behalf. The two companies decided it would be cheaper to pay off Mr. Somers lawyers that it would be to lose the case. It’s just one of many illegal tactics used by Chubb, Digital Realty, and their lawyers Seyfarth Shaw.
Chubb and Digital Realty didn’t stop at tampering with Somers lawyers, they also induced Judge Chen to help them illegally end the case without having to go to trial. Judge Chen’s statements below are part of a growing stack of evidence proving he engaged in case fixing.
Chen was obligated at that point to step down but failed to do so. This example is one of many actions that prove Chen was not acting fairly or impartially. For those who do not know, a motion for summary judgment is a chance for your opponent to get a judge to rule on a case without having to go to a jury trial.
This is what Judge Edward M. Chen said to Brian T. Ashe, the lawyer for Digital Realty/Chubb. It is highly improper for a judge to coach a defendant to end a lawsuit. This is what Chen said in an open courtroom:
“I mean the first opportunity is often a motion to dismiss under Rule 12, but we’re beyond that at this point so normally we reserve that and once I reset the schedule, um ah, hopefully at that point you’ll move for summary judgment…”Judge Edward M. Chen, July 29, 2017.
He tries to correct himself but it was too late:
“um ah, hopefully at that point you’ll move for summary judgment…it sounds like you’re going to move for summary judgment and that will probably happen as a series of motions at that point.Judge Edward M. Chen, July 29, 2017.
Judge Chen’s slip of tongue required that he immediately withdraw from the case yet he continued to preside over the lawsuit. When a judge presides over a case in which he does not have the ability to do so, it is said that he’s acting without jurisdiction. This means that the he final 2 1/2 years of the case he had as much of a right to act as a judge as your next-door-neighbor.
Because Judge Chen did not step down, it appears that he has joined sides with Digital Realty and Chubb. There is other damning evidence against Judge Chen that points to this same conclusion.
It’s unthinkable that a judge is at ease engaging in criminal activity that harms the person looking to him or her for justice.
In this instance it’s likely that Jewish organized crime arranged to bribe the judge. It’s also possible that hate group called the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai Brith has a file on Chen which they could use use to blackmail him into doing what they want.
Either way, we know that Judge Chen intentionally deprived Somers of his Constitutional right to a fair and impartial judge because has a vested interest in the outcome favoring Dig
