Allegations that judge pro tem lawyer Paula Salinger committed obstruction of justice crimes against
an indigent, unrepresented pro per have gone viral throughout family court reform social media.

DOCUMENTS (16)

Whistleblower leaked records from a Sacramento Family Court case indicate that criminal acts were committed
by family law attorney and temporary judge Paula Salinger against an indigent, unrepresented, pro per family
court party. The pro per was a victim and witness in a family court criminal contempt case filed against a Salinger
client, and the pro per also is a domestic violence victim, according to court records. Family court reform
advocates say the case is another example of the complete lack of oversight and accountability of attorneys
who engage in egregious misconduct against disadvantaged, pro per litigants who can't afford legal
representation.

As Sacramento Family Court News previously reported, Salinger has been caught in several scandals
including filing counterfeit documents in court, violating state laws and court rules, illegally attempting to
obtain a final divorce judgment while an appeal in the same case was pending, and obtaining a questionable
waiver of the requirements to become a temporary judge. Salinger also obtained from controversial Judge
Matthew Gary an illegal order for more than $10,000 in attorney fee sanctions against the same contempt and
domestic violence victim. To benefit Salinger, Gary also illegally attempted to use fee waiver law to obstruct an
appeal of several orders he issued for Salinger in the same case. Salinger's firm, Woodruff, O'Hair, Posner &
Salinger Inc., previously was sued for legal malpractice in a case alleging more than $1 million in damages.

8/23/2014 Sacramento Family Court News: Criminal Conduct by Woodruff, O'Hair, Posner & Salinger Inc Partner Paula D. Salinger Alleged and Documented in Lea
The new, criminal allegations first surfaced last month on social media, including Facebook and Twitter, where
several posts linked to supporting documents posted at Docstoc and Calameo. Due to the serious nature of the
claims, SFCN did not report on the assertions pending authentication of the records. SFCN has now verified the
accuracy of the documents and posted the complete set at our Scribd account. The Scribd document set is
embedded below.

Obstruction of Justice
The records indicate that Paula Salinger, a Sacramento County Superior Court sworn temporary judge and
officer of the Sacramento Bar Association Family Law Executive Committee violated California Penal Code
sections prohibiting witness intimidation and deceit of a witness. Under California law, both offenses are
designated as obstruction of justice crimes. The circumstances also reveal new collusion between Salinger and
Judge Matthew Gary.
As reflected by page one of the document set, at an unrelated court hearing held three weeks before the date
calendared for the contempt case, in open court Gary disclosed to Salinger that he would deny the contempt
claims, even though Salinger had yet to file a response to the contempt pleading. Garys prejudgment of the
contempt matter was a clear violation of the California Code of Judicial Ethics, the state laws governing judge
conduct.
The state Commission on Judicial Performance has publicly disciplined several judges for acting in a way
that manifested prejudgmentA trial judge should not prejudge the issues but should keep an open mind
until all the evidence is presented to him. In one CJP judicial discipline case, Judge Bruce Van Voorhis was
disciplined for creating "the appearance of prejudgment in your discussion of the case in open court by
improperly predicting the outcome of the case," according to CJP records. Click here for a compilation of CJP
disciplinary decisions about prejudgment.
Salinger then used the judge's unlawful disclosure in a threatening letter to the unrepresented opposing party:
"As the court indicated at the hearing on October 27, 2010, your Order to Show Case (sic) Re:
Contempt does not contain sufficient factual basis to sustain the contempt. At the hearing on
November 17, 2010, I intend to request the court dismiss the matter and order sanctions
pursuant to Family Code section 271 for proceeding with the contempt...Should you provide
written proof (a copy of a confirming letter to the court) by Monday, November 1, 2010 at 5:00
p.m. that the above matters have been dropped, I shall withdraw my requests for sanctions
pursuant to FC 271," Salinger wrote in a letter to the contempt victim and witness. Page one of the
document set below is an authenticated copy of the threatening letter.
The alleged criminal acts were committed after the
indigent, unrepresented pro per filed a criminal contempt of
court allegation against a Salinger client. The contempt
filing charged several violations of the Standard Family Law
Restraining Orders, which are issued in all divorce
proceedings. SFLRO's are automatically ordered against
both parties when a dissolution of marriage is initiated in
family court.

As page one of the document set reflects, Salinger illegally


threatened the victim and witness with financial harm in the
form of attorney fee sanctions if they did not drop the
criminal contempt case. As page three and four reflect,
Salinger concurrently filed an illegal responsive declaration
in the contempt case with a demand for $1,000 in attorney
fee sanctions against the contempt victim and witness.
As the page two legal reference reflects, under California
law the response to a contempt allegation may only be

the contempt on appropriate grounds. Requesting
"affirmative relief," including attorney fee sanctions, in
response to a contempt allegation is prohibited by law. As page five of the document set shows, Salinger's threat
coerced the victim and witness to drop the contempt matter.

Witness Tampering Law


As reflected by pages 6-16 of the document set below, Penal Code 133 makes it a crime to use fraud or deceit
to affect the testimony of a victim or witness. Penal Code 136.1(a) & (b) make it a crime to maliciously prevent
or discourage a witness or victim from giving testimony at a judicial proceeding. Salinger has not been charged with

either crime, disciplined by the State Bar, Supreme Court or Judicial Council, or otherwise held accountable for
the misconduct. Pro per advocates call the absence of accountability more proof that attorneys are effectively
immune from punishment for egregious misconduct against unrepresented pro pers who can't afford a lawyer,
and make up 70 percent of family court litigants. Civil law statutes, including wrongful use of civil proceedings,
and abuse of process may also apply to Salinger's lawbreaking acts. In addition, an attorney who intentionally
deceives a party to a court case is subject to misdemeanor criminal prosecution under Business and Professions
Code 6128. SFCN is completing an in-depth investigative report on the criminal contempt incident and other
troubling proceedings and documents from the same case. Our report will be published in the near future.

unenforced by j udges, prosecutors, and State Bar Chief Trial Counsel Jayne Kim.

Family court reform advocates say the latest revelations are additional proof that the court operates effectively as
a racketeering enterprise that deprives the public of the federally protected right to honest government
services. Court watchdogs assert and have documented that judge pro tem attorneys receive kickbacks in the
form of rubber-stamped orders and other preferential treatment from family court judges and employees. The
divorce lawyers who also hold the Office of Temporary Judge operate the family court settlement conference
program in exchange for the kickbacks and emoluments, watchdogs charge. California Penal Code 94 makes
receipt of an emolument by a judicial officer a crime, and several federal criminal statutes prohibit similar
conduct. The 2014 documentary film Divorce Corp designates Sacramento Family Court as the most corrupt
in the United States. For our complete coverage of the movie, click here.

The news analysis and opinion content at Sacramento Family Court News is partly based on the legal references and treatises used by judges and attorneys. Click here for a
description of our newsroom law library and the publications we use to research and report Sacramento Family Law Court issues. Most family law attorneys belong to the
Sacramento County Bar Association Family Law Section. The section is headed by the Family Law Executive Committee, also known by the acronym FLEC. The committee is
composed of CHAIR RUSSELL CARLSON, VICE CHAIR ELAINE VAN BEVEREN, TREASURER FREDRICK COHEN, and SECRETARY PAULA SALINGER. Family court watchdogs charge that the
committee acts as a shadow government controlling most operations, including dictating local court rules in Sacramento family law court.
