NATURE OF THE CASE/MATERIAL PROCEEDINGS BELOW
On November 19, 2018, and April 4, 2019, Rodriguez filed in the Circuit Court of Fairfax County a Verified Amended Petition for a Writ of Mandamus and Prohibition with Exhibits A thru V (“Plaintiff’s Ex.” Trial Court Record), for an order to the VSBDB to either:
(a) advise under what authority did it in 2006 revoke Rodriguez’s license for litigating to enforce his statutory property rights in a choate Virginia Attorney’s Lien under VA Code § 54.1-3932 (2017), and statutory rights as a Father (Plaintiff’ s Ex. D Trial Court Record); or,
(b) vacate the VSBDB Void Ab Initio Order and direct to stop violations of the Void Ab Initio Order Doctrine, Art VI VA Const, and VA Code § § 54.1-3915 & 54.1-3935.
On November 28, 2018, the VSBDB refused to accept service by the Sheriff. On December 26, 2018, Rodriguez filed a Verified Motion for Publication based upon the VSBDB refusal of service or the VSBDB not naming an agent for service.
On January 2, 2019, the Circuit Court issued an Order of Publication. The Washington Times filed a Notarized Affidavit confirming publication on January 10, 17, 24, and 31, 2019. On February 8, 2019, Rodriguez filed a motion for Default Judgement.
On February 21, 2019, the VSBDB filed its opposition to the Writ. The VSBDB filed Demurrers on April 23, and June 13, 2019. In both pleadings and at oral argument on June 28, 2019, the VSBDB admitted it was not a “court,” and its members were not “judges”, but that the VSBDB interpreted VA Code § 54.1-3909 and § 54.1-3910(1950-2017) to authorize it as a “parallel” administrative agency to a “court” with the power to revoke Rodriguez’s license for his litigating to enforce his statutory rights (Transcript page 2 second ¶,and page 8, Plaintiff’s Ex. D Trial Court Record).
Based on the VSBDB admitted circumventing the limitation and prohibitions under Art. VI § 5 VA Const., and VA Code § 54.1-3915 and & § 54.1-3935(1950-2016), on June 10, 2019, Rodriguez per VA Code § 18.2‑500 filed a Motion to Enjoin the VSBDB.
However, before the VSBDB filed any opposition to Rodriguez’s motion, on June 28, 2019, the Circuit Court granted the VSBDB demurrer, summarily denied Rodriguez’s motion, and enjoined Rodriguez from filing any future actions in Fairfax Circuit Court. Rodriguez noted specific objections under the Void Ab Initio Order Doctrine, VA Const, and VA Code. On July 16, 2019, a Notices of Appeal and Notice of the Transcript were filed.
STATEMENT OF FACTS
Based on the open express distrust of the drafters of the VA Const. regarding the motive of individuals in government generally, and the Judicial Branch expressly, the Citizens mandated the separation of power between the General Assembly and the Supreme Court of Virginia by ratifying Art. I § 5 VA Const.
To assure those restrictions be maintained the Citizens ratified Art. XII § 1 VA Const., reserved to themselves the authority to amend these constitutional limitations, prohibitions, and restrictions.
Consistent with these restrictions the General Assembly passed in 1932 the Act of the General Assembly p. 139 (“Act of 1932”) (codified as VA Code § 54.1-3915 (2017) § 54.1-3935(1950-2016) to establish in each County a decentralized attorney disciplinary system to be administered by courts.
Disregarding the Act of 1932, Washington D.C. Lobbyist/Lawyer Eric Holder and Jack Harbeston (“Eric Holder et al.”) in 2003 filed two complaints with the VSBDB against Rodriguez for his litigating: (a) to enforce his statutory Choate Virginia Attorneys’ Lien under VA Code § 54.1-3932 on a Sea Search Armada contract claim to Treasure Trove valued at USD 18 Billion on the sunken Spanish 1707 Galleon San Jose; and, (b) to enforce his rights as a Father under VA Code and Joint Custody Agreement.
Rodriguez challenged the VSBDB subject matter jurisdiction for noncompliance with the Act of 1932, and because Eric Holder et al.’s VSBDB complaints were the linchpin of a Common Law Conspiracy and Statutory Business Conspiracy VA Code 18.2-499 & 500 to damage Rodriguez’s international litigation practice, reputation, profession, statutory property rights.
Disregarding these objections, on November 27, 2006, the VSBDB issued a Void Ab Initio Order revoking Rodriguez’s license for litigating to enforce his statutory rights (Plaintiff’s Ex. D and G Trial Court Record).
Rodriguez filed civil tort actions for damages based on the VSBDB void order in both Virginia and Federal Courts violating the Common Law, Art. VI §§ 1, 5 & 7 VA Const., VA Code 18.2-499 & 500, and Virginia Tort Claims Act VA Code ‘ 8.01-195. But, Rodriguez was systematically denied access to an impartial common law trial and court to challenge the VSBDB void order violation of the Act of 1932 and the Void Ab Initio Order Doctrine (Plaintiff’s Ex. G Trial Court Record), use to assess taxes in 2006 higher than permitted by striking litigation expenses (Plaintiff’s Ex. Qi and Qii Trial Court Record), and use in 2006 to deny Rodriguez unemployment compensation benefits (Ri, Rii, T, and U).
But, Rodriguez has been systematically denied access to an impartial common law jury trial and the court to secure accountability for the VSBDB void ad initio order and Business Conspiracy.(Isidoro Rodriguez v. Jane/John Does of the Virginia State Bar Disciplinary Board et al., U.S. Dist. Ct. E.D. VA 12‑cv‑663‑JAB (4/12/2013), aff’d 4th Cir USCA No 13-1638 (Nov. 2013) (nationwide Federal pretrial injunction of actions for violation of the VA Const., VA Code, and the Void Ab Initio Order Doctrine); (Isidoro Rodriguez, Esq. v. Editor-in-Chief, Legal Times, et al., DC Dist. Ct. No 07-cv-0975 (PF), DC Ct. App. N. 07-5334, injunction denied SC Ct. No. 07A601, cert. denied US Sup Ct. 08-411(2008); and (Isidoro Rodriguez, Esq. v. Hon. Hassell et al., Fairfax Cir. Ct. No. CL-2007-15396, VA S. Ct. No. 081146, cert. denied 08-574 (2008)) (Complaint to the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) (P-926-16)); (Petition with the United Nations Committee on Human Rights for grant of “impunity”); (Petitions to the General Assembly, Plaintiff’s Exhibit D, G I Trial Court Record) http://www.isidororodriguez.com).
In response, Rodriguez filed petitions of grievances for the violation of the Void Ab Initio Order Doctrine, VA Const., and VA Codewith his NOVA representatives to the General Assembly (See http://t.co/sLv7pz3zD5). But, rather than investigating and taking corrective action in accordance with the Act of 1932:
O On January 9, 2017, in violation of Art. XII § 1 VA Const. amending procedures and Art. VI §§ 1, 5, & 7 VA Const. separation of power and due process, the General Assembly enacted VA Code § 54.1 3935 (2017) to ex post facto retroactively “conform the statutory procedure [under the Act of 1932] for disciplining of attorneys” to the 1998 rules issued by the Supreme Court of Virginia; and,
O On January 9, 2019, House Bill No 2111 was introduced as Special Legislation in violation of Art. IV §14 ¶4(18) VA Const., by seeing to give immunity to the VSBDB from civil liability for the Business Conspiracy.
The VSBDB admitted: first, to it being neither a “court” nor its members “judges” in apparent “conflict” with the mandates of VA CODE §§ 54.3915 (2017) & 54.1 3935 (1950-2016), and Void Ab Initio Order Doctrine; and, second, to interpreting VA CODE §§ 54.3909 & 54.1 3910 (2017) to establish it as a “parallel” centralized attorney disciplinary administrative agency in conflict with the limitations and prohibitions under ART. I §§ 5 & 9 VA Const., ART. VI §§ 1, 5 & 7 VA CONST., & ART. XII § 1 VA CONST. (VSBDB Brief in Support of Demurrer June 12, 2019, at page 2 second ¶ and oral argument) (See Brief in Opposition May 28, 2019, page 1, 11; See also Isidoro Rodriguez v. The General Assembly of Virginia, et al., VA Sup Ct Record No. 190579, Response in Opposition to the Petition at page 2 second full paragraph; Transcript of 02/21/2019 hearing pages 33 and 34, Fairfax Ct Cir Ct No 2018-16227, Responsive Pleading to Petition, page 5, (December 18, 2018).
On June 28, 2019, disregarding the above evidence, the Circuit Court granted a demurrer, etc.
AUTHORITIES AND ARGUMENT
I. THE CIRCUIT COURT ERRED IN GRANTING A DEMURRER HOLDING THAT PETITIONER ISIDORO RODRIGUEZ (“RODRIGUEZ”) LACKED STANDING FOR A WRIT TO THE VIRGINIA STATE BAR DISCIPLINARY BOARD (“VSBDB”) FOR VIOLATION OF THE VOID AB INITIO ORDER DOCTRINE, VA CONST. AND VA CODE. (Assignment of Error No. 1)
A. The Standard of Review Is De Novo.
“The legal question presented by a circuit court’s decision to sustain a demurrer requires the application of a de novo standard of review.” Cline v. Dunlora South, LLC, 284 Va. 102, 106, 726 S.E.2d 14, 16 (2012) (citing Glazebrook v. Bd. of Supervisors of Spotsylvania County., 266 Va. 550, 544, 587 S.E.2d 589, 591 (2003)). “On appeal, a plaintiff attacking a trial court’s judgment sustaining a demurrer need only show that the court erred, not that the plaintiff would have prevailed on the merits of the case.” Tronfeld v. Nationwide Mut. Ins. Co., 272 Va. 709, 713, 636 S.E.2d 447, 449 (2006).
Rodriguez has Standing for a Writ
The General Assembly responded to the holding in Legal Club of Lynchburg v. A.H. Light, 137 Va. 249, 250, 119 S.E. 55 (1923), citing Fisher’s Case, 6 Leigh (33 Va.) 619 (1835) (“[t]he power . . . make suspension or revocation of license effective in all other courts of the Commonwealth must be conferred by statute,” (Emphases added), by enacting the Acts of Assembly p. 139 (“Act of 1932”) (codified as VA Code §§ 54.1-3915 (2017) & 54.1‑3935 (1950-2016), under its exclusive power to grant judicial authority, establish courts, and appoint judges by establishing a County court decentralized statewide attorney disciplinary system. The General Assembly explicitly denied the Supreme Court of Virginia any power to directly discipline attorneys by requiring it to appoint a three-judge panel from the Court of Appeals, City of Richmond.
Finally, under Art. VI § 5 VA Const., and VA Code § 54.1 3915 (1950-2017)-the Supreme Court of Virginia was prohibited from promulgating court rules or regulations in “conflict” with VA Code § 54.1‑3935 (1950-2016).
Under the Common Law, Sir Edward Coke stated “an action would lie for the conspiracy to issue and enforce a void order,” because,
[W]hen a Court has. . . no [judicial authority or] jurisdiction of the cause, there the whole proceeding is [not before a person who a judge], and actions will lie against them without any regard of the precept or process. Case of the Marshalsea, 77 Eng. Rep. 1027 (K.B. 1613), (Emphasis added); see also 4 William Blackstone, Commentaries 140 at 141.
Regarding the Rodriguez standing for a Writ, consistent with this Virginia recognizes two tort claims for civil conspiracy – one under the common law and the second under statutory Business Conspiracy statute found in VA Code §¶ 18.2-499 & 18.2-500 of the criminal chapter of the Virginia Code – since the violation of § 18.2-499 is a class 1 misdemeanor. VA Code § 18.2-500 (a) & (b) statutory Business Conspiracy statute provides for the specific remedy of mandatory three-fold damages, cost of suit, reasonable attorney’s fees, and an injunction.
Thus, as early as 1888, the case of Crump v. Commonwealth, 84 VA. 927, 934, 6 S.E. 620, 624 (1988) recognized the viability of a claim for “a conspiracy or combination to injure a person in his trade or occupation is indictable.” In 1933, Werth v. Fire Companies’ Adjustment Bureau, 160 Va. 845, 854, 171 S.E. 255, 258-59, cert. denied, 260 U.S. 659 (1933) (citation omitted), acknowledged the ability for a plaintiff to sue atcommon law for civil conspiracy in noting that:
A conspiracy consists of an unlawful combination of two or more persons to do that which is contrary to law or to do that which is wrongful and harmful towards another person. It may be punished criminally by indictment, or civilly by an action on the case in the nature of conspiracy if damage has been occasioned to the person against whom it is directed. It may also consist of any unlawful combination to carry out an object not in itself unlawful by unlawful means. The essential elements, whether of a criminal or actionable conspiracy, are, in my opinion, the same, though to sustain an action special damages must be proved.
Consistent with this Virginia’s Business Conspiracy statute-VA Code §¶ 18.2-499 & 18.2-500 was enacted.
Turning to the evidence this action was filed because the VSBDB void ab initio order was issued in furtherance of Eric Holder et al.’s Business Conspiracy in violation of VA Code § 18.2.499 & 550 to damage Rodriguez’s business, reputation, profession, and property rights (Plaintiff’s Ex. D Trial Court Record). Also, the action was filed because the VSBDB void order was used in 2006 to assessed taxes greater than permitted by law and to deny unemployment compensation benefits. Finally, the action was filed for violation of the amending procedure under Art. XII § 1 VA Const.
Under, Howell v. McAuliffe, 788 S.E.2d 706 (Va. 2016), Rodriguez has standing because of these “sufficient interest” based upon the VSBDB Void Ab Initio Order Doctrine and “the parties will be actual adversaries.” Id., 788 S.E.2d at 713 (quoting Cupp v. Bd. of Supervisors, 318 S.E.2d 407, 411 (Va. 1984)). Rodriguez needs only “demonstrate a personal stake in the outcome of the controversy,” to assure a court, “that the issues will be fully and fairly developed.” Goldman v. Landsidle, 262 Va. 364, 371 (2001).
The standard is easily satisfied given the extensive record of Rodriguez challenges to the VSBDB void order issued to aid and abet Holder et al. Common law and statutory Business Conspiracy by violating the separation of power under Art. I § 5 & 9 VA Const., and Art. VI §§ 1, 5, & VA Const. (Plaintiff’s Ex. G and V Trial Court Record).
The injury and damage to Rodriguez are “actual or imminent, not conjectural or hypothetical.” Id. at 460, and both concrete and particularized to Rodriguez given the systematic denial of access to and impartial court and Common Law jury trial to challenge the VSBDB Void Ab Initio Order.
Therefore, the Circuit Court erred to holding the Rodriguez lack standing by failing to comply with the Void Ab Initio Order Doctrine given the particularized damages by the VSBDB Void Ab Initio Order violating Art. I §§ 5 &9 VA Const. and Art. VI §§ 1, 5, & 7 VA Const. Rodriguez has standing and stated a cause of action where relief to challenge and attacked at any time, Adirectly or collaterally@ can be granted both as an attorney and as a citizen of Virginia injured by the VSBDB void ab initio order. Rook v. Rook, 233 Va. 92, 95, (1987).
II. THE CIRCUIT COURT ERRED IN GRANTING A DEMURRER BY HOLDING THAT THE COURT LACKED SUBJECT MATTER JURISDICTION FOR A WRIT TO THE VSBDB FOR A BUSINESS CONSPIRACY IN VIOLATION OF THE VOID AB INITIO ORDER DOCTRINE, VA CONST. AND VA CODE. (Assignment of Error No. 2)
It is a fundamental doctrine of due process under the common law, Art. I & VI of VA Const. VA Code § 54.1‑3935, and the 14th Amend to U.S. Const., that Rodriguez as the party adversely affected and damaged by the VSBDB void ab initio ordermust have his day before a validly constitutionally created impartial court and common law jury trial. Marbury v. Madison, 1 Cranch 137, 140 (1803); Renaud v. Abbott, 116 US 277, 6 S Ct 1194 (1886).
This right to a Common Law trial by jury is guaranteed by the VA Const. and the 7th Amendment to the United States Constitution. It gives subject matter jurisdiction to the Circuit Court to issue a Writ of Mandamus for acts outside the scope of employment and legal authority. See Katia Gutierrez de Martínez v. Lamagno and DEA, 115 S.Ct. 2227 (1995).
Under the Void Ab Initio Order Doctrine first discussed in Marbury v. Madison, 1 Cranch 137, 140 (1803),
“[c]ourts are constituted by authority, and they cannot beyond the power delegated to them. If they act beyond that authority, and certainly in contravention of it, their judgments and orders are regarded as nullities. They are not just voidable but simply void, and this even prior to reversal.”
This is consistent with the twin doctrines of separation of power and due process within both the Commonwealth of Virginia and the United States republican system of government.
In sum, an entity such as the VSBDB, having neither constitutional authority, nor legal power, nor jurisdiction to render any act or order, the 2006 VSBDB void order is void ab initio—as not lawful, not subject to stare decisis/res judicata, and not enforceable being a complete nullity from its issuance, and is to be impeached directly or collaterally at any time, or in any manner. See also, Collins v. Shepherd, 274 Va. 390, 402 (2007); Singh v. Mooney, 261 Va. 48, 51‑52(2001); Barnes v. Am. Fertilizer Co., 144 Va. 692, 705 (1925); Rook v. Rook, 233 Va. 92, 95, (1987).
Virginia Civil procedures the Circuit Court has subject matter jurisdiction under VA Code §8.01-195.3, to hold judge or government attorney accountable for tort outside of the scope of employment or judicial authority or jurisdiction (relief from tort liability apply only to actions within “official capacity” and “acting legally within the scope of their employment,” Sayers v. Bullar, 180 Va. at 229 and 230, 22 S.E.2d at 12 and 13 (1942).
Similarly, under the Business Conspiracy statute, the Circuit Court has subject matter jurisdiction to grant equitable relief to enjoin a criminal enterprise outside of legal authority. Thus, under Christopher V. Harbury (01-394) 536 U.S. 403 (2002), 233 F.3d 596 (reversed and remanded), Rodriguez must have access to an impartial Circuit Court and common law trial by jury to challenge the VSBDB void order.
Therefore, the Circuit Court has subject matter jurisdiction to issue a Writ to secure accountability and removal of VSBDB for acts outside of their jurisdiction and legal authority. This is logical since to enforce the Void Ab Initio Order Doctrine a void order can be impeached directly or collaterally at any time, or in any manner by Rodriguez. As explained in Collins v. Shepherd, 274 Va. 390 (2007),
An order that is void ab initio is a complete nullity that may be impeached directly or collaterally by all persons, at any time, or in any manner. (quoting Singh v. Mooney, supra.) Furthermore “[a]n order is void ab initio rather than merely voidable, if ‘the character of the judgment was not such as the court had the power to render, or because the mode of procedure employed by the court was such as it might not lawfully adopt'” (quoting Evans v. Smyth‑Wythe Airport Comm’n, 255 Va. 69, 73(1998); Morgan v. Russia and Triangle Assocs., L.L.C., 270 Va. 21, 26‑27, (2005).
See also Barnes v. Am. Fertilizer Co., 144 Va. 692, 705 (1925); Rook v. Rook, 233 Va. 92, 95 (1987).
As explained in Pennoyer v. Neff, 95 US 714, 733 (1877),
Since the adoption of the [VA Const.] and the Fourteenth Amendment to the Federal Constitution, the validity of void judgments may be directly questioned, and their enforcement in the State resisted, on the ground that proceedings in a court of justice to determine the personal rights and obligations of parties over whom that court has no jurisdiction do not constitute due process of law. . . . To give such proceedings any validity, there must be a tribunal competent by its constitution‑‑that is, by the law of its creation‑‑to pass upon the subject‑matter of the suit.” (Emphasis added)
Thus, the Circuit Court committed reversible error by willfully obfuscating and refusing to comply with the Void Ab Initio Order Doctrine by holding it lacked subject matter jurisdiction in violation of the Void Ab Initio Order Doctrine under VA Const. and VA Code.
III. THE CIRCUIT COURT ERRED IN ORDERING AN INJUNCTION AGAINST RODRIGUEZ AND DISMISSING RODRIGUEZ’S MOTION UNDER VA CODE §§ 18.2-500 TO ENJOIN THE VSBDB’S BUSINESS CONSPIRACY IN VIOLATION OF THE VOID AB INITIO ORDER DOCTRINE, VA CONST. AND VA CODE. (ASSIGNMENT OF ERROR NO. 3)
Consistent with the intent of VA Code §§ 18.2-499 & 500, this Court in Gelber v. Glock, Record No. 160500 at p. 38, (June 22, 2017), confirmed that liability for civil liability is to spread “liability to persons other than the primary tortfeasor” once there is as here evidentiary proof that the underlying tort was committed by borrowing from Illinois law, to hold that “[t]he function of the conspiracy claim is to extend liability in tort beyond the active wrongdoers to those who have merely planned, assisted or encouraged the wrongdoer’s acts.” Id. at 38. Almy v. Grisham, 273 VA. 68, 80, 639 S.E. 2d. 182, 188, (2007).
VA Code § 18.2-500 (a) & (b) provides for the specific remedy of mandatory three-fold damages, cost of suit, reasonable attorney’s fees, and an injunction.
Here the evidence is indisputable. In 2006 the VSBDB issued a void ab initio order as the linchpin to Eric Holder et al. Common Law and statutory Business Conspiracy. The VSBDB void order was also used in 2006 to deprive Rodriguez of his right: (a) not to be taxed higher than permitted by the Internal Revenue Code; and, not to be denied benefits unemployment benefits by the violation of the Void Ab Initio Order Doctrine, VA Const. and VA Code.
The VSBDB void order has damaged Rodriguez’s business, reputation, profession, and property rights establishing the existence of the elements of both a Common Law Conspiracy and statutory Business Conspiracy by “concerted action, legal malice, and casually related injury . . . set[ting] forth core facts to support the claim.” Kayes v. Keyser, 72 Va. Cir. 549, 552 (City of Charlottesville 2007) (quoting Atlantic Futon v. Tempur-Pedic, Inc., 67 Va. Cir. 269, 271 (City of Charlottesville 2005)); see also M-Cam v. D’Agostino, Civil Action No. 3:05cv6, 2005 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 45289, at **7-8 (W.D. Va. Sept. 1, 2005) (plaintiff’s allegation that the defendants combined to effect a “preconceived plan and unity of design and purpose, for the common design is the essence of the conspiracy”). (Emphasis added)
Under VA Code §§ 18.2-500(b), Circuit Court has subject matter jurisdiction and the duty to protect Rodriguez from the VSBDB void ab initio order issued as part of a Eric Holder et al.’s Business Conspiracy. Pennoyer v. Neff, 95 US 714 (1877); See also Jordon v. Gilligan, 500 F.2d 701, 710 (6th Cir. 1974)(“a void judgment is no judgment at all and is without legal effect”) (Emphases added). The validity of the VSBDB void order is at issue, it can be attacked in any court as exceeding legal authority under Art. VI VA Const. and the Act of 1932. See Rose v. Homely (1808) 4 Cranch 241, 2 L ed 608; Windsor v. McVeigh (1876) 93 US 274, 23 L ed 914; McDonald v. Mabee (1917) 243 US 90, 37 S. Ct 343, 61 Led 608.
Consequently, the Circuit Court erred in issuing a prefiling injunction preventing Rodriguez from seeking redress and erred in dismissing Rodriguez’s motion for the immediate issuance of an injunction under VA Code § 18.2-500(b), to enjoin the VSBDB void ab initio order depriving Rodriguez of procedural and substantive right to due process and equal protection of the laws. In Re Ruffalo, 390 U.S. 544, 550-51, 88 S.Ct. 1222, 1226 (1968); see also Mississippi State Bar v. Young, 509 So. 2d 210, 212 (Miss. 1987); Office of Disciplinary Counsel v. Campbell, 345 A.2d 616, 620 (Pa. 1975); See Commercial Bus. Sys. Inc. v. BellSouth Serv. Inc., 249 Va. 39, 48, 453 S.E.2d 261, 267 (1995) (citing Middlesboro Coca-Cola v. Campbell, 179 Va. 693, 702, 20 S.E.2d 479, 482 (1942)).
The VSBDB void ab initio order and record of the Fairfax Courty Circuit Court’s systemic denial of access to an impartial judiciary by defying the limitaiton and prohibitions under the VA Cosnt. and VA Code confirms the wrongdoing by government attorneys and judges, as well as the Virginia Bar Association. The Virginia Judicial Branch has permitted a Common Law and Statutory Business Conspiracy to damage Rodriguez’s business, reputation, profession, and statutory property rights.
This evidence of retaliation against Rodriguez for being an independent advocate by the use of political influence and structural cronyism underscores the dangers warned by James Madison, that,
“[t]he accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few, or many, and whether hereditary, self-appointed, or elective, may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny.” The Federalist Papers, No. 48, Feb. 1, 1788
The record evokes the regrettable history of the sorry acts of German judges, lawyers and law school’s in the 1930’s violating the rights of citizens under the German Constitution–which was a crucial part in aiding both the rise of the National Socialist Party and the in human acts under German law, because,
the murder of the six million Jews and other persecuted minorities was done completely within the framework of German law.” Professor Michael Bazyler, The Legacy of the Holocaust and Lessons for Today: Research for a New Textbook Holocaust, Genocide, and the Law.
Thus, this Court must grant review, and remand to enjoin the VSBDB void order.

However, where is the check on the power of the judiciary? If we fail to check the power of the judiciary, I predict that we will eventually live under judicial tyranny. (Emphasis added)

 The “extraordinary remedy of a preliminary injunction is appropriate in the instant case given the extensive record of willful oppression under color of law, obstruction of justice, and systematic denial access to a common law trial by jury to consider the evidence of a violation of Art.

GOOD MORNING, MAY IT PLEASE THE COURT.
I AM ISIDORO RODRIGUEZ. MY BENCHMARK FOR ARGUING FOR THE GRANTING OF THE WRIT WAS SET IN 1964-MORE THAN 55 YEARS AGO-WHEN I TOOK THE OATH TO JOIN THE U.S. MILITARY. THIS OATH NEVER ENDED TO DEFEND OUR REPUBLICAN CONSTITUTIONAL SYSTEM AGAINST BOTH “FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC ENEMIES.”
THUS I AM SEEKING REVERSAL AND REMAND TO THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THIS DECLARATORY JUDGEMENT ACTION FOR THE VIOLATION OF THE VA CONST. AND VA CODE, AS WELL AS THE COMMON LAW EXCEPTION TO THE USE OF SOVEREIGN IMMUNITY FOR ACTS OUTSIDE OF LEGAL AUTHORITY AND THE VOID AB INITIO ORDER DOCTRINE PROHIBITION OF THE USE OF RES JUDICATA UNDER PER MARBURY V. MADISON AND VIRGINIA CASES, BECAUSE RESPONDENTS ACTS IN DEFIANCE OF CONSTITUTIONAL OR STATUTORY LIMITATIONS ARE VOID AB INITIO.
THIS IS CONFIRMED BY RESPONDENTS’ OWN ADMISSION:
FIRST, INTERPRETING VA CODE §§ 54.3909 & 54.1 3910 (2017) AS THE BASES FOR ESTABLISHING THE VSBDB AS A “PARALLEL” CENTRALIZED ATTORNEY DISCIPLINARY ADMINISTRATIVE AGENCY IN DELIBERATE DEFIANCE OF THE LIMITATION AND PROHIBITIONS UNDER THE MANDATES OF SEPARATION OF POWER AND DUE PROCESS OF ART. I §§ 5 & 9, ART. VI §§ 1, 5 & 7 VA CONST, & ART. XII VA CONST.;
SECOND, ADMITTING THAT THE VSBDB IS NEITHER A “COURT” NOR ITS MEMBERS “JUDGES” AS REQUIRED UNDER THE VOID AB INITIO ORDER DOCTRINE AND IN “CONFLICT” WITH VA CODE §§ 54.3915 & 54.1 3935 (1932-2009).
BASED ON RESPONDENTS’ ADMISSIONS IT IS IMPORTANT TO REMIND THE COURT:
- THAT THE ACT OF 1932 ESTABLISHED A DECENTRALIZED COURT BASED ATTORNEY DISCIPLINARY SYSTEM WITH “COURT” HAVING EXCLUSIVE JURISDICTION PER VA CODE §§ 54.3915 & 54.1 3935 (1932-2009).
- THAT ART. VI § 1 RESTRICTS THE POWER TO GRANT JUDICIAL AUTHORITY AND CREAT COURTS TO THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY[i];
- THAT ART. VI § 5 PROHIBIT THE COURT FROM PROMULGATING RULES IN “CONFLICT” WITH VA CODE;[ii]
- THAT ART. VI § 7 RESTRICTS ON THE POWER TO APPOINT JUDGES TO THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY;[iii]
- THAT UNDER ART. XII §1 VA CONST., ONLY THE CITIZENS OF VIRGINIA, CAN AMEND THE VA CONST’S SEPARATION OF POWER AND THE RIGHT TO DUE PROCESS UNDER ART. VI §§ 1, 5 & 7 VA CONST.
DESPITE THESE PROHIBITIONS, THE CIRCUIT COURT GRANTED PROTECTION TO RESPONDENTS FROM ACCOUNTABILITY FOR THEIR ACTS OUTSIDE OF LEGAL AUTHORITY BASED ON VARIOUS GROUND BUT ESSENTIAL THE DOCTRINES OF SOVEREIGN IMMUNITY AND RES JUDICATA.
BUT LOGICALLY AND LEGALLY NONE OF THESE GROUNDS CAN EXTEND “IMPUNITY” TO RESPONDENTS FOR THEIR ADMITTED WILLFUL ACTIONS VIOLATING THE LIMITATIONS AND PROHIBITIONS UNDER THE VA CONSTITUTIONS REPUBLICAN SYSTEM OF GOVERNMENT. THERE CAN BE NO GRANT OF “IMPUNITY” FROM CHALLENGES BASED ON THE EVIDENCE OF VIOLATION OF THE VA CONSTITUTIONS BECAUSE NEITHER A VA STATUTE NOR COURT RULE CAN SUPERSEDE THE LIMITATION AND PROHIBITION UNDER THE VA CONSTITUTION.
THIS IS BECAUSE ANY OTHER RULE OF LAW WOULD MAKE CONSTITUTIONAL LAW SUBSERVIENT TO RESPONDENTS WILLFUL UNLAWFUL ACTS. SEE DEPARTMENT OF REVENUE V. KUHNLEIN, 646 SO.2D 717 AT 721 (FLORIDA SUPREME COURT 1994),
THEREFORE, THE CIRCUIT COURT ERRED IN ITS SYSTEMATIC DENIAL OF ACCESS TO AN IMPARTIAL COURT AND IMPARTIAL COMMON LAW JURY TRIAL TO SECURE ACCOUNTABILITY FOR RESPONDENT VSBDB 2006 VOID AB INITIO ORDER (PLAINITT’S EX D) AIDING ERIC HOLDER ET AL.’S COMMON LAW AND STATUTORY BUSINESS CONSPIRACY VA CODE 18.2-499 & 500 TO DAMAGE MY BUSINESS, REPUTATION, PROFESSION, AND STATUTORY PROPERTY RIGHTS.
THIS SYSTEMIC DENIAL IS ADDITIONALLY CONFIRMED BY THE EVIDENCE THAT RATHER THAN TAKE CORRECTIVE ACTION AS REQUESTED FOR THE VIOLATION OF THE VOID AB INITIO ORDER DOCTRINE, VA CONST., AND VA CODE, FROM 2003 TO 2018 THE RESPONDENT OFFICE OF THE GOVERNOR, RESPONDENT OFFICE OF ATTORNEY GENERAL OF VIRGINIA, AND RESPONDENT GENERAL ASSEMBLY, PARTICIPATED IN THE BUSINESS CONSPIRACY BY:
FIRST, VIOLATING OF ART. XII § 1 VA CONST., BY ENACTING AND SIGNING ON JANUARY 9, 2017, VA CODE § 54.1 3935 (2017) TO EX POST FACTO RETROACTIVELY “CONFORM THE STATUTORY PROCEDURE FOR THE DISCIPLINING OF ATTORNEYS” TO 1998 COURT RULES THAT “CONFLICT” WITH ART. VI §§ 1, 5, & 7 VA CONST. AND VA CODE §§ 54.3915 & 54.1 3935 (1932-2009); AND,
SECOND, VIOLATING ART. IV §14 ¶4(18), BY MY REPRESENTATIVE DELEGATE MARCUS SIMON (HOUSE DISTRICT 53), ON JANUARY 9, 2019 INTRODUCING HOUSE BILL NO 2111 AS SPECIAL LEGISLATION TO GIVE IMMUNITY TO RESPONDENTS FROM CIVIL LIABILITY FOR THE BUSINESS CONSPIRACY.
THIS EVIDENCE CONFIRMS THAT RESPONDENTS’ COMPOUNDED THE BUSINESS CONSPIRACY BY A CLASS 2 & 6 FELONY TO “RESIST THE EXECUTION OF THE LAWS UNDER COLOR OF AUTHORITY.” (VA CODE §§ 18.2‑481 AND 482).
FOR THESE REASONS THE CIRCUIT COURT ERRED:
FIRST, BY VIOLATING THE COMMON LAW EXCEPTION TO SOVEREIGN IMMUNITY FOR RESPONDENTS ACTS OUTSIDE THE SPHERE OF LEGISLATIVE AUTHORITY, SCOPE JUDICIAL AUTHORITY, AND SCOPE OF EMPLOYMENT BY THEIR DEFIANCE OF ART. I §§ 5 & 9, ART. VI §§ 1, 5, & 7, ART. XII § 1 VA CONST., BY THE ENACTMENT OF VA CODE § 54.1‑3935 (2017) TO RETROACTIVELY EX POST FACTO ADOPT THE 1998 COURT RULES ISSUED IN VIOLATION OF VA CODE § 54.1‑3915 (1950-2017), VA CODE § 54.1‑3935 (1950-2009), AND THE VOID AB INITIO ORDER DOCTRINE.
SECOND, BY NOT IMPANELLING A SPECIAL GRAND JURY TO INVESTIGATE AND REPORT ON THE EVIDENCE OF CLASS 2 & 6 FELONY UNDER VA CODE §§18.2-481 & 482 TO “RESIST THE EXECUTION OF THE LAWS UNDER COLOR OF AUTHORITY” AND MISDEMEANOR BUSINESS CONSPIRACY UNDER VA CODE 18.2-499 & 500.
THIRD, BY VIOLATING THE VOID AB INITIO ORDER DOCTRINE BY USE OF RES JUDICATA.
FOURTH, BY GRANTING RESPONDENT’S DEMURE BASED ON A MISNOMER, LACK OF STANDING AND FAILURE TO STATE A CLAIM.
FIFTH, BY HOLDING THAT RESPONDENT GENERAL ASSEMBLY AS AN ART. III AND VI VA CONST. ENTITY IT CANNOT BE SERVED UNDER COURT-ORDERED PUBLICATION VA CODE §§ 8.01-316(B) & 318.
REGARDING THE ABOVE VIOLATIONS I RESPECTFULLY REMIND THE COURT THAT PATRICK HENRY, WHO WROTE,
“[P]OWER IS THE GREAT EVIL WITH WHICH WE ARE CONTENDING. WE HAVE DIVIDED POWER BETWEEN THREE BRANCHES OF GOVERNMENT AND ERECTED CHECKS AND BALANCES TO PREVENT ABUSE OF POWER. HOWEVER, WHERE IS THE CHECK ON THE POWER OF THE JUDICIARY? IF WE FAIL TO CHECK THE POWER OF THE JUDICIARY, I PREDICT THAT WE WILL EVENTUALLY LIVE UNDER JUDICIAL TYRANNY.” (EMPHASIS ADDED)
IN THAT CONTEXT THE WRIT SHOULD BE GRANTED BECAUSE OF THE EVIDENCE OF RESPONDENTS’ CONCERTED UNLAWFUL ACTS TO DENY CITIZENS OF VIRGINIA ACCESS TO AN INDEPENDENT LEGAL PROFESSION WILLING AND ABLE TO LITIGATE AGAINST STATE ACTION IN VIOLATION OF THE VA CONST. MANDATES OF SEPARATION OF POWER AND DUE PROCESS.
I CLOSE AND MOVE FOR THE EMPANELING OF A GRAND JURY, AND FOR AN INJUNCTION OF VA CODE § 54.1‑3935 (2017). I ALSO MOVE FOR THE LIFTING OF THE CIRCUIT COURT’S INJUNCTION TO PERMIT THE THE FILING OF AN ACTION FOR DAMAGES BEFORE A COMMON LAW JURY BASED ON THE 2006 VSBDB VOID AB INITIO ORDER.
