Catalano & Plache: The Cochran Firm Fraud


THE COCHRAN FIRM apparently defrauds other law firms as well as its clients and some of its partners. See an excerpt of an article in New York Law Journal, dated October 29, 2012:

Two prominent civil rights firms in New York are accused by a three-lawyer Washington, D.C., firm of cheating it out of a significant fee as part of a $3.75 million settlement in a wrongful death case. Catalano & Plache claims that [Cochran] Neufeld Scheck & Brustin and Emery Celli Brinckerhoff & Abady submitted court documents on settlement terms without naming Catalano as a participating firm.

"The defendants engaged in a pattern of conduct to defraud and deceive plaintiff," Catalano argues in the Manhattan Supreme Court suit, Law Offices of Catalano & Plache v. Brustin, 157248/2012. "Defendants are scheming and attempting to avoid their legal, moral and ethical obligations."

The complaint said Cochran Neufeld & Scheck, a predecessor firm to Neufeld Scheck, agreed to jointly represent Emil Mann's estate in a New Jersey court. (See the full article in New York Law Journal)

One might wonder if The Cochran Firm also cheated its client, Mann's son, in the wrongful death civil action. (This article has eighteen(18)  links.) Emil Mann was a member of the Ramapough Mountain Indians. He was shot and killed by New Jersey Park Police Officer Chad Walder in April 2006 in Mahwah, N.J. The Cochran Firm showed The Ramapough People no mercy years later when it mishandled the Ramapough's lawsuit against Ford for toxic waste dumping on the Ramapough's land, causing sickness, deaths, and pollution. The unethical lawyers settled the Ramapough's civil action for a mere $12.5million although the lawsuit was valued at $3billion. The CoIntelPro lawyers also neglected to file suit against the Environment Protection Agency (EPA) for its part in the environmental pollution that lasted over 40 years, with Ford continually dumping paint sludge on the Ramapough's property. The EPA issued an order to Ford in 1983 to clean the Ramapough People's land within 10 years, and Ford ignored its responsibility to clean the land by at least 1993. The EPA had a responsibility to enforce its order but neglected to do so. The land was still contaminated in 2006, thirteen years after Ford's deadline. Therefore, the EPA shares a responsibility with along with Ford for sickness and deaths resulting from land contamination after 1993, because the EPA neglected to enforce its own deadline. I am confident that The Cochran Firm never told the Ramapough People that they also could make a case against the EPA, because after Johnnie Cochran's death, The Cochran Firm seems to have become a CoIntelPro agent.

After the alleged fraud against Catalano & Plache, "Cochran" seems to have "disappeared" from the name and presumably from the law firm that is now named Neufeld Scheck & Brustin. (Neufeld may be left holding the bag.) The Cochran Firm is famous of its "now you see us, now you don't" magic tricks. The Cochran Firm's office in Atlanta actually got Judge Wendy Shoob to say there is no Cochran Firm office whatsoever within the State of Georgia and dismiss my fraud lawsuit against the scoundrels based on that perjury (Neals v. The Cochran Firm, Georgia Superior Court, 2005). The Firm got Judge Timothy Batten to rule it "immaterial" that The Cochran Firm's defrauded my family to protect Memphis Shelby County Jail after the secret arrest and wrongful death of Larry Neal (United States District Court, Norther District of GA, Neals v. The Cochran Firm, 2007). See "WRONGFUL DEATH OF LARRY NEAL" http://WrongfulDeathOfLarryNeal.com . I was very offended by the courts' deicsions and did not learn until years later that "black men have no rights white men are bound to honor" (Dred Scott decision) and that African Americans are not "real" citizens who owe the nation allegiance and have PROTECTED rights. I did not learn about the Black Codes in school, so I believed for over 50 years that I had regular U.S. citizenship when in fact, every 25 years Congress votes on whether blacks can continue to vote and serve on juries. If Catalano & Plache has many black attorneys and staff, nothing is likely to be done about the firm being duped by The CoIntelPro Cochran Firm lawyers. The Cochran Firm fraud against minorities has many unexpected accomplices, including numerous black people.

After defrauding the Neal family and the family of 92-year-old police victim Kathryn Johnston, and lying in Georgia Superior Court (denying that Cochran Cherry Givens Smith & Sistrunk law office is in any way connected with The Cochran Firm or its Memphis law office), the managing partner of the Atlanta office of The Cochran Firm, Hezekiah Sistrunk, was REWARDED by being inducted in the prestigious Gate City Bar Hall of Fame. See the embedded video below and at http://youtu.be/VpllACRJxeY YouTube link. Count how many times CCGSS denies any affiliation with The Cochran Firm in this Response to Interrogatories which it filed in Georgia Superior Court while it continued to advertise and contract with unsuspecting clients under that same identity http://www.wrongfuldeathoflarryneal.com/docs/Ex05_CCGSSRogResponses.pdf   When the Neal family sued The Cochran Firm for its fraud in federal court, The Cochran Firm proceeded to deny having any law offices whatsoever in Memphis, Tennessee. My 89-year-old mother said, "But that is where we signed contract." I said, "I know, Mama. The Cochran Firm is allowed to do perjury in courts of law."

The Cochran Firm frauds are not usually reported except in legal journals. Mainstream media, state bars, courts, legal search engines, the BBB and other consumer protection agencies, etc., censor these lawsuits so The Cochran Firm can continue to misuse Johnnie Cochran's name and defraud other minorities like Mr. Mann and the Ramapough People and my family after my mentally, physically handicapped brother's 18 days of secret arrest and murder in Memphis Shelby County Jail. It seems that the law firm's main purpose now is to defraud its own clients by reducing or eliminating payouts by to its clients by government entities and major corporations. The Cochran Firm is sued regularly by its own attorneys as well as its defrauded clients.

Catalano & Plache may not be the first law firm that sued The Cochran Firm for fraud, but censorship keeps most civil actions against The Cochran Firm out of news reports, and judges ordinarily prevent the frauds from going before a jury. The Cochran Firm is a repeat offender, and I hope all of its fraud victims will come forward, unite and sue the unethical law firm partners under the RICO Act (assuming that blacks will not be interned in concentration camps without any criminal charges and with no opportunity for defense under NDAA.) People who persist in seeking justice after falling victim to a Cochran Firm Fraud may be subjected to gangstalking, censorship, financial persecution, and burglary. My home was burglarized in August 2011, and the only things stolen were two boxes of Neals v. The Cochran Firm lawsuit files and evidence I was not permitted to put before a jury. In preparation for a RICO action against The Cochran Firm frauds, I have followed numerous cases and invite you to review ten(10) listed below along with their links.

1. COCHRAN FIRM FRAUD IN CA SUPREME COURT
http://marylovesjustice.blogspot.com/2012/10/cochran-firm-fraud-in-ca-court-of.html
The Cochran Firm was sued by black employees who contracted with The Cochran Firm to represent them against their employer in a race discrimination lawsuit. The Cochran Firm had the workers to sign a confidentiality agreement for mediation. The Cochran firm then removed the signature page from the confidentiality agreement and used it in a settlement agreement without its clients' knowledge or permission and settled their lawsuit for a miniscule sum.

JOHNNIE COCHRAN was apparently surveilled by noted civil rights era photojournalist and CoIntelPro agent, Ernest Withers - a former Memphis policeman who was also assigned to gain Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr's confidence and keep the government apprised of King's plans (Withers is pictured on the left in the photo above). "They" have Cochran's law firm now, and his name. LISTEN to former Cochran Firm attorney Shawn Chapman Holley speak to NPR about racism and fraud against former Cochran Firm attorneys who refused to defraud black clients after Johnnie's death and were forced out of the firm by the new owners http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=12171473 (IF cyberstalkers corrupt the link, Google "Shawn Chapman Holley at NPR re Controversy at The Cochran Firm.")

MaryLovesJustice would like to extend gratitude to Don DeBar for making us aware of the latest Cochran Firm Fraud lawsuit. When "leaders" let us down, new leaders arise. When mainstream media fails to report, we look to media like Community Progressive Radio. Thanks, Don!

REPEAT OF PARAGRAPHS 1 AND 2 in this article that has eighteen(18) links: - THE COCHRAN FIRM apparently defrauds other law firms as well as its clients and some of its partners. See an excerpt of an article in New York Law Journal, dated October 29, 2012:
