Whistleblower Puts Virginia Supreme Court on Trial
June 5, 2003
Yesterday seven Justices of the
Virginia Supreme Court were put on
trial in their own court by attorney Linda
Kennedy who was disbarred
The Justices had the spotlight
turned around on them when Kennedy
addressed them from the podium. Kennedy
was there to appeal her
disbarment for violating the First Unwritten Rule of
Ethics: do not embarrass the Virginia Bar by blowing the

Kennedy began by throwing Chief Justice Leroy Rountree Hassell,
guard. She complimented him saying she heard him preach the Gospel
Jesus Christ at Regent University. Maybe he momentarily forgot that
similar tactic was used by the Apostle Paul to subdue King Agrippa.
Justice straightened up and beamed with pride as he was reminded of
distinction that Regent bestowed upon him in the eyes of his
community by honoring him as a professor of law and

silenced a third Justice by interrupting his question and
asking that the
Justices not ask her any more questions. She said they
had a copy of her
written brief, and she wanted to use her entire 15
minutes to explain to them
in person how their legal system has become
disgracefully corrupt. And if
that did not convince them, then nothing
moment later a fourth Justice, another woman, interrupted
to ask if she
understood correctly that Kennedy did not want to answer
perhaps implying that Kennedy had something to hide.
But Kennedy rebuked her.
Kennedy said it could not have been made any
plainer: "no questions." The
Justice pushed herself back in her chair
showing consternation, but she had
nothing more to say.
Having silenced the Justices, Kennedy then proceeded
--- shall we say
"earnestly" --- to "chew their butts" as plain folk in
Good for you, Kennedy, because the buck stops
here. These Justices are
the senior officers of the Virginia Bar whose
lawyers are trying to
cover up the fact that Kennedy caught them red-handed

audiotapes that prove what the Ethics leader really said,
in his own recorded
voice. But the trial court cut out the part of the
record where the trial
judge refused to allow those audiotapes to be
played. Ironically, the trial
judge's comments were falsified in the
record claiming he said he would have
exonerated Kennedy if only she
could have proved what the audiotapes in fact
Talk about smoking guns. But this is just one of the more
cases. It is an open secret that records are being falsified
in cases all over the state and all over the country while the
courts hear it with a deaf ear. Zed McLarnon, a forensic
expert, has documented that transcripts in Massachusetts courts
altered with the knowledge of court personnel. In Indiana,
Rohrs has conclusively documented literally thousands of alterations
hearing transcripts in a child custody case. "This is
misconduct," attorney Eugene Wrona says of similar practices
Pennsylvania, "and these people belong in jail."
Further, it is
notorious that lawyer whistleblowers can all expect to
share Kennedy's fate.
Law students are misled like the public, being
told in law school that law is
an honorable profession. Not until they
begin practicing do they discover how
money really changes hands. Only
after they have invested years in their law
school education are they
taught that they must maintain an unwritten code of
secrecy. Then they
shut up --- or they are disbarred.
15 minutes, Chief Justice Leroy Rountree Hassell, Sr.
told her the time was
up. Kennedy announced that there was no need for
her to listen to her
opponent's excuses or comment on them. Then she
walked out with some of the
30 supporters who accompanied her including
pastors and lawyers.
Justices in this case will pronounce a verdict on themselves.
order a full investigation and a new trial of Kennedy's
disbarment, then the
Justices will have pronounced their innocence.
Otherwise, Regent ought to
reconsider whom they allow to preach to our
