INFORMING THE SUFFOLK COUNTY LEGISLATURE & SUFFOLK COUNTY VOTERS:
Resolution #1576-2017 --
August 30, 2017 -- Suffolk Co. Committee on Gov't Operations -- meeting agenda
attached July 8, 2016 letter pertains to this year’s district attorney
salary increase for which Suffolk County is liable. It is for all
Suffolk County legislators, executive officers, the treasurer/comptroller,
as well as for Suffolk County Attorney Dennis Brown. Unless I hear
from you to the contrary, I will assume you have forwarded this e-mail on to
them, as I request you to do.
To assist Suffolk County in taking protective steps, I am also directly sending this e-mail to Suffolk County District Attorney Spota so as to reinforce his duty to promptly furnish his fellow Suffolk County public officers with his findings of fact and conclusions of law with respect to the citizen-taxpayer action Center for Judicial Accountability, Inc. v. Cuomo, et al. (Albany Co. #1788-2014). Does he deny or dispute its rock-solid evidentiary showing that the judicial salary increases, on which his own district attorney salary increases rest, are statutorily-violative, fraudulent -- & unconstitutional? How about our June 21, 2016 corruption complaint based thereon, filed with Albany County District Attorney Soares? Does he deny or dispute its sufficiency for founding criminal indictments for violations of the penal law – and convictions?
For the convenience of all, the direct link to CJA’s webpage for the attached July 8, 2016 letter, from which all referred-to correspondence and substantiating evidence are accessible, is here: http://www.judgewatch.org/web-pages/searching-nys/budget/budget-2016-17/7-8-16-ltr-to-counties.htm .
Feel free to call with any questions. "

CJA's July 14, 2016 FOIL REQUEST -- "RE: Salaries & Other 'Compensation & Non-Salary Benefits' -- for District Attorneys and Other Full-Time Elected County Officers
"This follows up the Center for Judicial Accountability’s July 8, 2016 letter to the counties entitled:
Your duty to repudiate & challenge the state-imposed district attorney
CJA’s website, www.judgewatch.org, posts that July 8, 2016 letter – and our July 14, 2016 and August 8, 2016 FOIL requests to the counties, designed to further assist you in evaluating the situation, including with respect to state reimbursement for district attorney salaries. These are accessible from a menu webpage entitled 'HOW MANY D.A.s DOES IT TAKE TO CONFRONT EVIDENCE & ABIDE BY ETHICAL RULES?'. The direct link is here: http://www.judgewatch.org/web-pages/searching-nys/budget/budget-2016-17/how-many-das-menu.htm.
Where are your district attorneys’ findings of fact and conclusions of law with respect to the evidence furnished?How about the findings of fact and conclusions of law of each county attorney? Have these been furnished to each county’s legislative board? To the county executive officers? To the county treasurer/controller? Has the July 8, 2016 letter been placed on the agenda of your county’s legislative board meetings for discussion and vote? And what about your organizational and lobbying entities – the New York State Association of Counties and the County Attorneys’ Association of the State of New York? What kind of leadership have they been providing?
Please be advised that in the absence of any substantive response from you to the July 8, 2016 letter, CJA has had no choice but to continue to proceed alone on behalf of the People of the State of New York and the public interest. On Friday, September 2, 2016, we commenced a new citizen-taxpayer action in Supreme Court/Albany County (#5122-16) pertaining to the state budget for fiscal year 2016-2017. In addition to embodying ALL the evidence that CJA’s July 8, 2016 letter furnished you to establish the counties’ duty to take steps to void the district attorney salary increases arising from the December 24, 2015 report of the Commission on Legislative, Judicial and Executive Compensation and the August 29, 2011 report of the Commission on Judicial Compensation, it presents a tenth cause of action (¶¶85-110) to void the “grants to counties for district attorney salaries” in this year’s Aid to Localities Budget Bill #S.6403-d/A.9003-d.
As the counties are directly affected by the tenth cause of action, this is to give you notice of your right to seek intervention as to that cause, in particular – and, additionally, as to the sixth, seventh, and eighth causes of action to void the December 24, 2015 and August 29, 2011 reports (¶¶59-80). Attached is plaintiffs’ formal notice of today’s date of your right to seek intervention. Plaintiffs’ order to show cause for a preliminary injunction to enjoin the state from disbursing monies to the counties for district attorney salaries, signed on September 2, 2016, is returnable in Supreme Court/Albany County on Friday, September 16, 2016. It, too, is attached. These documents – as, likewise, the September 2, 2016 verified complaint and the transcript of the September 2, 2016 oral argument – are all accessible from CJA’s menu page for this second citizen-taxpayer action: http://www.judgewatch.org/web-pages/searching-nys/budget/citizen-taxpayer-action/2016/menu-2nd-citizen-taxpayer-action.htm.
Feel free to call with any questions. I am available to assist you, to the max, in discharging your duty to your counties’ taxpayers.
Thank you. "
