To Sarah Dozier: Fraud Against Kathryn Johnston Estate

(28 paragraphs, 10 links)      This is an open letter to Sarah Dozier, niece of 92-year-old Atlanta police murder victim, Kathryn Johnston (pictured left) - revised 2/14/11. I have urgent news for you as administrator of the estate. YOU WERE DEFRAUDED OF $13.1 MILLION BY THE COCHRAN FIRM FRAUD.

After Johnnie Cochran died, The Cochran Firm seemingly became a pseudo-government agency to spy on and defraud minority citizens across the United States. When black and brown citizens retain The Cochran Firm after being victimized by government entities or New World Order companies, The Cochran Firm works against its clients to limit or prevent monetary compensation, especially when police murder minorities like elderly Kathryn Johnston and my handicapped brother, Larry Neal.

On November 21, 2007, The Cochran Firm told you and the world that it filed a lawsuit against the City of Atlanta on your behalf regarding your aunt’s November 21, 2006 murder by former Atlanta police officers in a no-knock warrant home invasion. That is a lie, according to a records search at State Court by Telisha Blackshear*. The Cochran Firm did not really file lawsuit on behalf of Kathryn Johnston’s estate. Your lawyers worked behind your back to prevent a bona fide lawsuit from being filed against the City of Atlanta in order to leave you at the mercy of the City to pay you whatever it wanted to pay, or nothing at all.
* If you did not check to verify this information when it was reported in August 2010, court records will likely be doctored.  I was the "irate black woman" when I went to Superior Court and State Court to see the Dozier vs. City of Atlanta  lawsuit.  I wanted to make sure that no clerk or customer in either court could ever forget that I was there and that there was absolutely no record of the Dozier  lawsuit in State Court or in Superior Court on August 19, 2010.  I told all the clerks that since the missing lawsuit had been "settled" and once I wrote about the missing lawsuit, "they" would sneak it into the records at the supposed court of origin.  I have discovered that court records in Georgia often "change."  For instance, in Neals vs. The Cochran Firm, Superior Court reportedly lost The Cochran Firm's Motion to Dismiss which was filed in September 2005.  I saw that document secured in Neals court file when I reviewed the file in the presence of a court clerk in February 2006.  The file was in order and every document on the docket was indeed in the file.  The judge should have ruled on Defendants' Motion to Dismiss within three months of Defendants' filing date, but that motion was granted in May 2006 - after discovery ended and when it was time to proceed to jury.  In Neals vs. The Cochran Firm in USDC, pro se counsel was not notified when MARTA became a movant in the case.  MARTA became a movant because it carried advertising for the Atlanta office of The Cochran Firm, and The Cochran Firm denied having any Georgia and Tennessee offices in court. The Cochran Firm called its own advertising fraudulent regarding those offices (ads on MARTA, television commercials, phone books, billboards, through legal referral services, and the firm's Internet site) in order to avoid facing a jury trial after defrauding the Neal family.   

On August 17, you were induced to accept a $4.9 million settlement on the $18 million lawsuit that you thought The Cochran Firm had filed. Authorities knew that any jury convened in Atlanta would be mostly comprised of African Americans who were very sympathetic to plaintiffs in the Johnston civil action. Three of the former police officers involved in murdering Kathryn Johnston and framing the innocent, elderly black woman as a drug dealer are already sentenced to prison, so jurors would have had no doubts about Kathryn Johnston’s wrongful death. That is why The Cochran Firm made sure your case never went to jury trial. SUE THE COCHRAN FIRM FOR THE OTHER $13.1 MILLION THAT YOUR CASE WOULD HAVE RECEIVED IF YOUR LAWYERS HAD REALLY ACTED IN YOUR BEST INTEREST AND TAKEN THE CASE BEFORE A JURY.

The Cochran Firm withheld filing a lawsuit for Kathryn Johnston’s death, but they pretended to have filed one in State Court, Georgia. I checked with that court and Superior Court on Tuesday, August 18, and no such lawsuit was on record according to court records search.  On January 9, 2008, The Cochran Firm opened a civil action in United States District Court, Northern District of Georgia and pretended to "remove" the lawsuit (that had never really been filed) to federal court.  Your attorneys defrauded you and federal court to induce you to settle for one-third of the amount you believed The Cochran Firm had demanded in a lawsuit that was never actually filed. This was done to you to prevent you from going before a jury and getting the entire $18 million.

I was so excited to learn that State Court had no record of Dozier v. City of Atlanta on file on August 18, 2010, that I made this post longer than need be - full of repetition.  One interesting question is why would Dozier have been filed in State Court instead of Superior Court, anyway?  Secondly, why would your attorneys use your Complaint to put forth a defense for police who killed your aunt?  Sistrunk wrote that police acted on an informant's tip about drugs being sold in Johnston's home when they did the home invasion.  We all know that lie was exposed by the man who police planned to cover for them a year before the Complaint was ever filed in court.  Last time I looked at Dozier in federal court, there were records of several attorneys withdrawing from the case.  I don't blame them. Sarah, go see an attorney about irregularities in your lawsuit.  Other people who have/had lawsuits handled by that firm should do likewise.

When my mother and I sued The Cochran Firm for defrauding my family and helping Shelby County Tennessee Jail escape accountability for killing my handicapped brother, Larry Neal, our lawsuit was thrown out of Georgia Superior Court and federal court due to more perjury and fraud. "When you have no defense, just say you don't exist!"  See http://wrongfuldeathoflarryneal.com/  - The Cochran Firm protects the system, and when the law firm faces lawsuit, the “injustice” system reciprocates and protects the COINTELPRO law firm. However, the Cochran Firm’s record looks clean, because authorities protect their reputation. The Atlanta Better Business Bureau refused to take a complaint against The Cochran Firm. The FTC and FCC refused to investigate my complaint that The Cochran Firm advertises its Georgia law office continually, but the courts disclaim its existence when wronged clients serve a lawsuit there. It is a New World Order conspiracy against minority Americans.

Some clients manage to get part of their money when they sue The Cochran Firm for fraud, so please try. The firm recently had to pay a Latino woman, Ana Margarita Martinez, $287,000 after failing to recover $27.1 million for her that she had already been awarded. At least The Cochran Firm had to pay her something – less than 15% of what they made her lose. Please try to recover some of the money they made the Johnston estate lose by working with your defendants behind your back.  See my article about the fraud against Ana Margarita Martinez at the link below.  I also wrote about Kathryn Johnston in the articles below. I never let authorities forget that your family was waiting for justice for our elder's death.

I wish you and your family all the best, Sarah. I cannot congratulate you on getting justice for Kathryn Johnston’s murder, because you were defrauded of $13.1 million, plus you will have to share half of the small settlement you accepted with your fraudulent attorneys unless you fight them. Trust NO ONE who led you to The Cochran Firm. Many of them were rewarded for misleading you. TRY to call me and I will tell you more. Please be aware that my phone is tapped.  They control our outgoing and incoming calls, even when we change phone companies and numbers.  Sometimes, they have a false message on our phone saying the number is not in service.  Other times, they direct all calls to our voice mail but prevent us from getting the messages people leave.  They no longer allow any computers to go online from my home address.  But we trust in God.   Please listen to a National Public Radio interview with Shawn Chapman Holley, a former attorney in the Johnnie Cochran Firm.  She confirms that after Johnnie Cochran's death, his NEW partners fired or forced out attorneys would not go along with the program of delivering bad legal services to minority clients.

Be strong, Sarah. I hope my readers will help ensure that you get this information, because mainstream media (and even black journalists) will not tell African Americans and other minorities that there is a law firm set up to defraud minorities, especially in cases of murders by police.  Once you learn what was done to your family, I hope you stand and fight the good fight of faith. God is with you.
