Anyone who has read Gustavus Myers book,The History of the Supreme Court of the United States,knows about the failure of the judiciary from the beginning to protect the man in the street,but these judges of today have taken it to such a level of debauchery,they make the original jurists look like the myth they and the court have become.
[....On Aug. 25, 2000, F. Gary Davis, 21-year veteran and acting director of the Office of Government Ethics (OGE) issued a tortured 13-page advisory opinion on mutual fund reporting. This advisory introduced the ludicrous notion that fund manager writings in prospectuses (and not actual fund holdings) would govern decisions about disclosing potentially conflicting stocks in a mutual fund. Given the notoriously known penchant for brokers to lie, surely Davis’ 21-years of experience told him this was a bad idea. Was David lining his retirement pockets with Cartel favors?
Following on Davis’ heals seven months later, on Mar. 14, 2001, the U.S. Judicial Conference introduced sweeping changes to the Code of Conduct for Judicial Employees. These changes cleared the way for federal employees in the justice system to use Davis’ ethics advisory to hide their stock in litigants under a euphemistically defined “safe harbor” exemption.
