    The corruption runs far deeper than within the Statewide Grievance Committee itself - as anyone who has dared attempt to find an attorney operating in an egregious manner within our state‘s broken and corrupt family court system will attest to. Never once has any attorney operating in that court ever been at fault for any violation of the Professional Rules of Conduct, no matter how egregious the offense. No matter if children are harmed in the process. We have had over 2,000 complaints filed against judges, mostly family court judges showing complete disregard for Judicial Canons and glaring violations of fundamental due process and the Constitution, and the judges are batting 1,000% and operate as untouchable Gods and Kings in this state as never once has a complaint deem to have any merit. The time for complete overhaul and reform is now. Corruption in the Judiciary and all three branches of our state government will no longer be ignored as business as usual in this state and as social media is shining bright lights onto the corruption and dysfunction.

    I agree with G. Bailey. Adherence to the CT Constitution—calling for 3 branches of government—has broken down. Why did the Executive Branch AG represent the Judicial Branch SGC in this legal action? And what does the CGA do when the SGC disobeys our laws? There are 2 legislative research reports saying that Bowler has been reinterpreting the law for years re attorney grievance procedures. Yet nothing is done about it.

    My suggestion is that Mr. Altschu0er, kick this to the Department of Justice in DC, for "investigation". Connecticut taxpayers pay the civil servant grievance committee. If there was no malpractice suit would he "have standing" to challenge a grievance proceeding? I do believe blocking a citizen&lsquo
