Why Is No One Holding the City Solicitor Accountable?

Whenever any officer of the court commits fraud during a proceeding in the court, he/she is engaged in "fraud upon the court.” In Bulloch v. United States, 763 F.2d 1115, 1121 (10th Cir. 1985), the court stated, "Fraud upon the court is fraud which is directed to the judicial machinery itself and is not fraud between the parties or fraudulent documents, false statements or perjury. It is where the court or a member is corrupted or influenced or influence is attempted or where the judge has not performed his judicial function --- thus where the impartial functions of the court have been directly corrupted. Fraud upon the court has been defined by the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals to "embrace that species of fraud which does, or attempts to, defile the court itself, or is a fraud perpetrated by officers of the court so that the judicial machinery cannot perform in the usual manner its impartial task of adjudging cases that are presented for adjudication." Kenner v. C.I.R., 387 F.3d 689 (1968); 7 Moore's Federal Practice, 2d ed., p. 512, ¶60.23. The 7th Circuit further stated "a decision produced by fraud upon the court is not in essence a decision at all, and never becomes final."

What is the difference between a cop planting evidence to manufacture false evidence against a citizen and the City Solicitor manufacturing fraudulent evidence and submitting it to the courts in order to obtain rulings that are not based on the rule of law but the fraud committed by the Mayor's lawyers? Exactly, there is absolutely no difference whatsoever. Both are criminal violations. Despite that, reports are revealing that the City Solicitor has done this in hundreds of cases but what corrective action has the City undertaken to address this? None at all. Former City Solicitor George Nilson was not fired for misconduct but apparently for hiring a Nazi supporter in the law department. The Mayor has never answered for this. Shouldn't the citizens trust that their lawyers are behaving ethically and that they respect the "Rule of Law" as much as they say we must? If you are going to hang the corrupt cops, you are also going to have to hang their lawyers, as well.
