Judge James Kaddo

  1. 1. DOES LOS ANGELES SUPERIOR COURT JUDGE JAMES KADDO (JAMAL KADDO MOAWAD) HAVE TIES TO THE HEZBOLLAH AND THE ARAB AMERICAN TERRORIST SUPPORT NETWORK? I received a letter from a former client of Attorney William Gary Kurtz stating that Kurtz had raped her while she was mentally ill then he and Private Detective Steve Rombom, had her institutionalized to cover this up. Kurtz filed a libel suit against me when I posted this letter on the internet. After Judge Michael Harwin recused himself from the case I was assigned Judge James Kaddo. When I first began research on Judge Kaddo I came across an article in which his daughter accused him of having ties to the Hezbollah. Since this accusation was made in anger during a family dispute I figured his daughter was making things up. Then I did more research into Judge Kaddo’s past and by Allah what I did find? Even though the Judge was a Lebanese born Maronite Christian he did in fact have numerous connections to Islamic terrorism and terrorist support groups. His daughter was telling the truth. With this information in hand I prepared the following motion asked Judge Kaddo to step down.
  2. 2. AJ Weberman pro se 318 3rd Avenue #520 New York 10010 Gary Kurtz pro per 20335 Ventura Blvd Suite 200 Woodland Hills, Calif. Superior Court of California State of California County of Los Angeles ) Case No.: LC084486 Gary Kurtz, ) ) PEREMPTORY CHALLENGE ) Plaintiff, ) ) ) vs. ) ) ) A. J. Weberman, Defendant Alan Jules Weberman being duly sworn, deposes and says: That he or she is a party to the within action. That James Kaddo (Jamal Kaddo Moawad) the judge, before whom the hearing in the aforesaid action is pending (or to whom it is assigned) is prejudiced against the party or the interest of the party so that affiant cannot or believes that he cannot have a fair and impartial trial or hearing before the judge. JUDGE KADDO APPROVED OF DEFENDANT’S UNFAIR TREATMENT BY PREVIOUS JUDGE MICHAEL HARWIN This defendant is being sued by attorney Gary Kurtz for libel. The case was assigned to Michael Harwin. On September 25, 2009 Judge Michael Harwin stated in open court, ―Mr. Weberman you should know that I am also admitted as an attorney in New York State so if need be we will try it there.‖ Judge Harwin was serious in his tone and when I asked if he was a judge in both New York State and California simultaneously he told his clerk to hang up the phone. The law regarding personal jurisdiction in California indicates that a defendant can file an answer, demurrer, or motion to strike without waiving the right to contest personal jurisdiction. The law does not allow the defendant to ask the judge to recues himself and subsequently contest personal jurisdiction. See
  3. 3. CA Code of Civ. Proc. Section 418.10. (e) A defendant or cross-defendant may make a motion under this section and simultaneously answer, demur, or move to strike the complaint or cross-complaint. Judge Harwin knew that I was a pro se defendant was not familiar with the California Civil Code so he deliberately made this remark knowing that I would ask him to recuse himself and therefore loose an jurisdictional motions I might file. On December 8, 2009 Judge Kaddo, the Judge who was reassigned this case, informed me that by asking Judge Harwin to recues himself I had blown my jurisdictional defense. I was stunned. I thought to myself, ―So this was why Harwin made this remark, I was set up.‖ I asked Judge Kaddo what was I supposed to do after Judge Harwin, who previously recuesed himself, stated ―Mr. Weberman you should know that I am also admitted as an attorney in New York State so if need be we will try it there.‖ I told Judge Kaddo ―He tells me he is going to hang me! What am I supposed to do, go with hanging judge?‖ Judge Kaddo responded; “Well we don’t do those things anymore; we stopped before Thanksgiving” making light of the fact that Judge Harwin had set me up like a clay pigeon. This is just one reason why Judge Kaddo should recues himself. There are many more: JUDGE KADDO HAS TIES TO HEZB’ALLAH. According to the sworn testimony of his son-in-law Judge Kaddo had ties to the Lebanese terrorist group Hezb’ allah, also known as The Army of God. This group has thousands of Iranian missiles aimed at my country, Israel (I have dual citizenship) from Judge Kaddo’s native country Lebanon. The Hezb’allah connection first surfaced after Judge Kaddo decided to take the law in his own hands. Man Seeks Court's Protection After Judge's Threat L.A. County jurist said in child custody hearing that he would kill his daughter's boyfriend. By Jean Guccione LA Times Staff Writer October 20 2002 A 41-year-old man is asking the court for protection from his girlfriend's father, a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge who testified during a bitter child custody hearing that he would kill him. Judge James A. Kaddo testified in April that he would kill Fadi Nora because he didn't want the man near his three young grandchildren -- a remark the judge now says he regrets. "It was a stupid thing to say, but I was a grandfather in tears," said Kaddo, recounting the April 22 court hearing. Nora said the remark was just the latest threat that Kaddo has made against him in the last two years. In court documents, Nora said he is so afraid of Kaddo that he moved to an undisclosed location and quit attending services at his church. "I live
  4. 4. under a constant threat of death," he said in a declaration filed last month in Orange County Superior Court. Nora, who is living with Kaddo's daughter, Nadia Yammine, is asking the court to bar Kaddo from coming within 150 yards of him, his home, his car or workplace. A hearing is scheduled for Oct. 25. The Los Angeles County district attorney's office declined last month to file criminal charges against Kaddo, who was appointed to the bench by then-Gov. George Deukmejian in 1991 and is now assigned to Van Nuys. The 68-year-old jurist's statement is not considered an actual threat "because the specific intent necessary to commit the crime is lacking," the district attorney's investigation concluded. "Rather, his statement appears to be an inappropriate emotional response to a very charged issue." During the hearing, Kaddo urged Commissioner Ann Dobbs to deny his daughter's bid for custody of her three children, now 8 to 13. He said he didn't want his grandchildren near Nora, a friend of the Kaddo family for two decades until he began dating the judge's daughter. Kaddo testified that he told Yammine: "I can't stand to have that psycho around my grand kids. I'm going to do what I have to do to save my grandchildren," according to a transcript of the hearing. On cross-examination, Yammine's attorney, Wendy A. Herzog, asked Kaddo what he had meant. "If it means killing him, I will do it," the judge responded. "Killing who?" Herzog asked. "Mr. Nora," Kaddo answered. "Is there anything else that it could have meant?" she asked. "That's what I had in mind," Kaddo said. That's where the exchange ends in the court transcript. But Nora, Yammine and Herzog contend the court reporter did not capture Kaddo's final words on the subject. They assert in court documents, that Kaddo also said, "And I would do it with my bare hands if I had to." Kaddo's attorney, Theodore A. Cohen of Beverly Hills, denied all of the allegations against his client. He said the judge's testimony was misinterpreted. "What he intended to say was that anybody would do whatever they could to protect a child or grandchild," Cohen said. "He said what any one of us would have said" under the same circumstances. In addition to seeking a restraining order against the judge, Nora filed a complaint with the state Commission on Judicial Performance, which investigates allegations of misconduct and disciplines errant judges. No California judge has ever been publicly disciplined for threatening to kill another person, according to commission records. But an intemperate jurist was censured for threatening to jail a telephone company worker if the judge's phone service was interrupted. Another judge was removed from office for misconduct that included
  5. 5. threatening to give a police officer "a .38-[caliber] vasectomy" after he cited the judge for excessive use of her car horn. Yammine said in a declaration that the court should take the threats her father made against Nora "very, very seriously." Nora and Yammine said their dispute with Kaddo began almost two years earlier, when Nora, a family friend, helped Yammine with her divorce from a wealthy Lebanese businessman. Kaddo wanted Yammine to return to her husband. According to his declaration, Nora said the judge showed him four tire valves a few days after the tires on his Jeep were deflated in October 2000 in a secure garage, implying that the judge was responsible. And a month before the heated child custody hearing, Nora said he received an anonymous call from someone who told him in Lebanese that "my days were numbered." In court documents filed this week, Yammine accused her ex- husband of having ties to the terrorist group, Hezbollah. She said her father has sided with him in an effort to fulfill his political and business aspirations in his homeland. Yammine also accused Kaddo of conspiring with her ex-husband to keep her children, who are U.S. citizens, in Lebanon against her will. Cohen denied the allegations against his client. "The whole thing is just insanity," he said, noting that a Hezbollah sympathizer would never retain a Jewish attorney to represent him. Yammine signed an agreement permitting her husband to raise their children in Lebanon. When she tried to have the stipulation overturned, her father testified against her, and she lost. Santa Ana- based attorney Richard C. Gilbert, who is representing the couple, accused the justice system of giving Kaddo special treatment because he is a judge. "That transcript is troubling," Gilbert said. "The commissioner [Dobbs] does not report it to the Commission on Judicial Performance or the police ... Instead, she just changes the subject." Gilbert said temporary restraining orders are routinely granted in heated domestic situations like these. But Nora has been unable to get such an order, he said, without retaining an attorney and testifying in court with Kaddo present. "Could you imagine," Gilbert said, "what would happen if Mr. Nora had threatened a Superior Court judge?" During the custody hear, Judge James Kaddo testified as follows: Judge James Kaddo: "If it means killing him, I will do it." DA Herzog: "Killing Who?" Judge James
  6. 6. Kaddo: "Mr. Nora." DA Herzog: "Is there anything else that it could have meant?" Judge James Kaddo: "That's what I had in my mind." According to Nora’s sworn declaration, Judge James Kaddo also threatened to ―get gang members that he has done favors for as a judge to harm him.‖ This indicates the Judge has a proclivity toward violence and would associate himself with like minded people. See ATTACHMENT A and see Los Angeles Superior Court Nora V Kaddo B166045 The argument that because Cohn was Jewish Judge Kaddo could not have Hezb’allah connections is fallacious. Other Jewish attorneys have represented members of Hezb’allah. Information about Mohamad Youssef Hammoud is available in a powerful and detailed 85-page federal affidavit filed in late July 2000 in the U.S. District Court in Charlotte, North Carolina, based on the reports of six cooperating witnesses and five secret informants, physical surveillance, financial records, and much else. Hammoud, it seems, received military training in Hezb’allah camps in Lebanon and boasts of being "well-connected" to Hezb’allah leaders. One informant calls Hammoud "100 percent Hezb’allah." Another thinks him dangerous because he "would likely assist in carrying out any action against United States interests" if Hezb’allah asked him to. A third says Hammoud "would not hesitate" to commit a terrorist act in the United States for Hezb’allah. Hammoud was represented by attorney Stanley Cohen, a Jewish traitor.1 Aside from his former son-in-law who as a successful businessman in Lebanon has to deal with these murdering Islamist descendants of apes and pigs Judge Kaddo has other connections to the Hezb’allah: Judge Kaddo is a leading member of the Lebanese American Foundation as is Wafa Hob’allah. Hob’allah wrote, ―I have been called Ms. Hezbollah by judges in court. Sometimes, it’s an honest mistake, but you can tell when someone does it to be sarcastic. That hurts. I am Lebanese, but I am really a citizen of the world. I don’t present myself as a Lebanese Arab Muslim. I am a professional.‖2 Hob’allah’s cousin, Hassan Hob’allah is head of the international relations section of Hizb’allah's political bureau. Issam Nasrallah was master of ceremonies at an anti-Israel rally at UCLA and was introduced by Judge James Kaddo, who said: "How sweet it is to hear the words that our beloved south is free again [from evil Israeli occupation].‖ Hassan Nasr’allah is Secretary General of the Hezb’allah. Issam Nasr’allah is a relative and Face Book friend of this terrorist. See ATTACHMENT B. Suzan Fakih is a friend of Issam Nasr’allah and she is also a Face Book friend of Zeinab Moghnieh who is related to Hezb’allah military commander Imad Moghnieh killed in Damascus in February 2008. 1. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,244002,00.html 2. http://www.middleeastlaw.com/text/Press/LosAngelesDailyJournal.pdf
  7. 7. In July 1985 Judge Kaddo showed his true colors when he called for the release of Hezb’allah terrorists held by the Israelis. The Los Angeles Times reported: ―James Kaddo is a Maronite Christian and chairman of the Los Angeles-based United American-Lebanese Committee. Although he is a Christian, Kaddo said he is concerned that Americans are beginning to lump all things Middle East together. That's the reason he participated in a press conference held here last week by Arab-Americans calling for the release of both the hostages and the prisoners held by the Israelis, he said. "The Arabs are being mistaken for the Iranians," he said, referring to the fact that one group holding a few of the American hostages [the Hezb’allah] is thought to be financially supported by the Iranian government. In fact, Iranians and Arabs are ethnically different, and speak different languages--Arabic and Persian. During the crisis, Kaddo said he had been in contact throughout the Southland with Lebanese of many different persuasions. "All of the factions have been contacting me [including the Hezb’allah] and feel we should not sit on our hands because we don't want to have Americans feel that we have a loyalty problem," he said.3 The United American Lebanese Committee AKA The United American Lebanese Federation sponsored a speech by Jack Shaheen whose publisher is Olive Branch Press. Olive Branch Press has published numerous books by David Ray Griffen who writes that the U.S. government caused or deliberately allowed the attacks of 09/11/01 to take place and that the collapse of the twin towers of the World Trade Center was caused by a controlled demolition (bombs planted in the buildings prior to the planes striking the buildings). He hallucinates that the Pentagon was not struck by American Airlines flight 77 or any commercial jet, but was hit by a guided missile and the commercial jet that crashed in Pennsylvania was hit by a heat-seeking guided missile launched by the government to silence the hijackers who could have exposed government complicity. Of course Bush knew in advance that the attacks would take place because after the attacks began he stayed talking to children in a classroom. The Presbyterian Jew-hating missionizing4 Olive Branch Press also publishes the work of Phyllis Bennis. Bennis defends Iran and challenges White House concerns that Iran intends to build nuclear weapons, going so far as to argue that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s calls to ―wipe Israel off the map‖ were misinterpreted and that really, ―the threat is the other way around‖ because Israel is pushing for a war against Iran. Judge Kaddo admitted that there was a question about his State Department security clearance but claims he was granted it after a year-long investigation: ―Upon completion of my Army service, I intended to go into the State Department or the Foreign Service, 3. http://articles.latimes.com/1985-07-03/news/vw-10378_1_divided-loyalty?pg=4 4. http://www.adl.org/PresRele/ChJew_31/4537_31.htm
  8. 8. hopefully, to serve at an American embassy in the Middle East. Unfortunately, the background check, which was mandatory—both in the United States and Lebanon— took longer than expected and by the time I received clearance, I had almost finished one whole year of study at the University Of Southern California School Of Law. I then decided that I might as well finish law school and, thus, gave up a career in the Foreign Service.‖5 Why didn’t the Judge finish law school then go in the State Department? I believe he is lying about having been granted a security clearance. JUDGE KADDO SUPPORTS THE TERRORIST GROUP THE PALESTINIAN LIBERATION FRONT (PLO). In 1987 Immigration authorities arrested Khader Hamide and Michel Shehadeh with five other young Palestinians and a Kenyan woman--dubbed the "LA 8" by the media--on charges of being affiliated with the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, then the second-largest faction of the terrorist Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO). The government claimed that the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine advocated world communism, making affiliation with it a deportable offense under the McCarran- Walter Act. Attorney James Kaddo handled the case for these terrorists and was able to get them off the hook by using the same US Constitution these terrorists wished to replace with a Communist dictatorship. He stated that Congress had passed a law that was intended to ―misguide and misdirect the American people from airing views and making a lucid decision on the Middle East.‖ ―Lucid decision‖ means abandon Israel and support its enemies sworn to destroy it. In September 2003, after American learned what terrorism was really about the government announced it would seek their deportation under the Patriot Act for distributing Palestinian magazines and raising ―humanitarian aid‖ in Los Angeles more than twenty years ago. America had come to its senses that people like Kaddo had pulled the wool over its eyes. See ATTACHMENT C. Judge Kaddo was close friends with Dr. Sabri El Farra who along with terrorist and murderer Yassir Arafat had organized a terrorist cell, under the guise of a Palestinian Youth Movement, when both attended the same secondary school in Egypt. See ATTACHMENT D. JUDGE KADDO IS A PART OF THE ARAB AMERICAN TERRORIST SUPPORT NETWORK Judge Kaddo is a leading member of the Arab American Anti-Discrimination League. See ATTACHMENT E. In 1980, James Zogby6 joined with former Senator James 5. http://www.lasuperiorcourt.org/courtnews/uploads/13200728113023gaveltogaveldiversity2006 .pdf 6. In 1984, Zogby served as deputy campaign manager for fundraising for the Reverend Jesse Jackson’s presidential campaign Zogby has come to the defense of the Muslim Brethren, Hamas, and Islamic Jihad, arguing that these groups are merely “politically” or “religiously” opposed to the peace process. He defended the American Muslim Council. James Zogby criticized President Clinton’s January 1995 executive order classifying a number of Islamist organizations as terrorist groups. Zogby rejected outright in the pages of a pro-Hamas publication, that fundraising within the Arab-American and Muslim American community is in any way connected to any Middle Eastern terrorist groups “Not enough has been done to explain Islam in the
  9. 9. Abourezk to form the ADC. The ADC has 18,000 members and is the largest grass roots Arab-American organization and claims that its mission is defending the political rights and promoting the cultural heritage of the more than three million Americans of Arab descent. Senator James Abourezk is a terrorist sympathizer – he was willing to testify for Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman7 but was prevented from doing so. The Blind Sheik Rahman’s attorney, Abdeen Jabara, was honored with the James A. Kaddo Award for furthering terrorist support groups in America. The ADC is part of the Islamists ―Terror Lobby‖ and uses civil liberties issues to make it easier for Islamists to operate by lobbying against ―anti-terror‖ legislation on the highest levels of government. After Islamist Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab attempted to kill 300 human beings on a flight landing in Detroit the United States Government decided to screen travelers coming from Yemen, Pakistan and other terrorist breeding ground with a full body search. Nawar Shora, the legal director at the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, said the rule wrongly implied that all citizens of certain nations are suspect. ―I understand there needs to be additional security in light of what was attempted on Christmas Day,‖ Mr. Shora said, adding that he intended to file a formal protest on Monday. ―But this is extreme and very dangerous. All of a sudden people are labeled as being related to terrorism just because of the nation they are from.‖ This is an attempt to security strip America making it easier for terrorists to carry out their dastardly deeds by making it easier for terrorists to get on airplanes. This was not the first attempt of the ADC to facilitate the work of terrorists as they have attempted to eviscerate certain provisions of the Patriot Act. See ATTACHMENT F JUDGE KADDO IS A SUPPORTER OF JESSE JACKSON AND RALPH NADER. Mr. JAMES KADDO (ATTORNEY), (Zip code: 90004) $1000 to JESSE JACKSON FOR PRESIDENT '88 COMMITTEE on 05/14/88.8 Jackson called Jews ―Hymies‖9 Among Jackson’s most damning quotes: that although "Zionists who have controlled American policy for decades" remain strong, the "decades of putting Israel's interests first" would end once Obama became president.10 West and to deal with those passages in the Qu’ran that some in the West find troubling. One easy way to do this is to invite those who ask the questions to read the entire Qu’ran and read the entire Torah and then see which is the bloodier scripture.” 7. USA v Rahman Doc.

  10. 10. Judge Kaddo is part of the Arab American Lawyers Association of Southern California that sponsored a speech by Ralph Nader. Lebanese American Ralph Nader stood by his characterization of the White House and Congress as "puppets" of the Israeli government, in a letter sent to Anti-Defamation League national director Abraham Foxman. This is not much different than the Nazis contention that America is living under a ―Zionist Occupational Government‖ or ZOG. SEE ATTACHMENT G DEFENDANT HAS DUEL ISRAELI AMERICAN CITIZENSHIP AND IS ACTIVE IN FIGHT AGAINST TERRORISM AS A LEADING MEMBER OF THE JEWISH DEFENSE ORGANIZATION It comes as no surprise that Judge Kaddo was assigned to my case after Judge Harwin deliberately sabotaged it by luring me into making a motion for recusal. I am a researcher for and member since its inception of the Jewish Defense Organization which has been the target of numerous actions brought about by Steve Rombom and his attorney and Plaintiff in this case Gary Kurtz. The website in question contains numerous references to the Jewish Defense Organization; in fact the letter accusing Kurtz of raping a mentally ill client of his was mailed to the Jewish Defense Organization post office box. See ATTACHMENT H. Of all the judges in Los Angeles why did a Jewish militant end up being tried by a judge who is anti-Israel and who has clear links to terrorist groups within Lebanon? This is not a matter of you Judge Kaddo being prejudice against Jews, it is a matter of you having a long record of support for Palestinians and an anti-Zionist bias. Additionally this case does not belong in the Los Angeles judicial system as the lawsuit is all about corruption of that very system. FinalIy I was deprived of my right to be tried in New York City by an arrogant, tricky, deceitful and duplicitous Judge Michael Harwin and now I went out of the frying pan and into the fire with a pro-Palestinian Hezb’allah connected judge who should not only not be trying this case. It should be noted here that Judge Kaddo will not grant this motion because by doing so he would tacitly admit that the allegations in this motion have merit. POINT OF LAW: ―CCP 170.1. (a) (iii) A person aware of the facts might reasonably entertain a doubt that the judge would be able to be impartial. B) Bias or prejudice toward a lawyer in the proceeding may be grounds for disqualification.‖ DECLARATION OF AJ WEBERMAN
