Los Angeles, CA The U S Supreme Court twice denied a hearing to court corruption fighter and jailed attorney Richard I. Fine (Fine vs L A County Sheriff Leroy Baca Case No. 09-A827 and No. 09-1250) During a four week period in April and May 2010 the Court denied the two appeals without comment indicating they are disposed to ignore the long held U S Supreme Court precendent case IN RE FARR, where in 1974 Justice William O Douglas limited to five days the time that a person can be held in solitary “coercive confinement” for civil contempt of court. Fine has been held in those conditions since March 4, 2009.
JUDICIAL CONFLICT ADMITTED IN COURT TESTIMONY
Although Fine has never been charged or convicted of a crime he was jailed following an attempt to disqualify Judge David P. Yaffe from sitting on a case where he had accepted payments from a party to the case. The fact that Judge Yaffe refused to step down from the case and instead presided on the case where he himself was involved and then ordered Fine to jail has been verified by the Judge’s on Court Testimony citing the conflict, and stating that he was “troubled” by the fact that he was being called as a witness in Fine’s contempt case where he himself was sitting as the judge.

ATTORNEY PLANS TO WIN HIS FREEDOM
Described in the video below are the circumstances that led up to Dr. Richard Fine’s decision to keep on fighting from his jail cell even after the Supreme Court refused to consider the illegal payments made to Judge David Yaffe who ordered Fine held indefinitely in contempt of court following Fine’s exposing the court’s corruption.
