Why Did Judge Jill A. Pryor Recuse – After Oral Argument – in this $826 Million Dollar Ponzi Scheme?

Judge Jill Pryor apparently recused herself AFTER oral argument, however, apart from a footnote in the final 2-panel opinion, there is nothing on the docket to suggest Jill Pryor recused, either by order or notation on the docket.

LIT COMMENTARY

In this 11th Circuit appeal sat a 3 panel of Judges William Pryor, Jill Pyror (no relation) and a judge sitting by designation. Judge Jill Pryor apparently recused herself AFTER oral argument. Apart from the final order (a footnote confirms her recusal) affirming the conviction of the lower court for disgraced Florida Attorney Livoti, there is nothing on the docket to suggest Jill Pryor recused, either by order or notation on the docket. We would have expected such as it is an untimely recusal, so late in proceedings.

The same was true in the Burkes’ case (19-13015), where she denied the first recusal in an order and then immediately sealed the Burkes recusal motion – to which the Burkes refiled a 2nd recusal and to which she refused to respond, yet in the interim another 5 appellate judges would be assigned at some point to the Burkes case. Weird huh. We think so, it’s what you do when you’re trying to cover up FRAUD. That’s right, what they affirm in this sentence below for Livoti, they do themselves, “Fraud Upon Fraud” is the term judges seem to use today.

What’s even more interesting in the oral arguments is Aileen Cannon, then a prosecutor, was presenting oral argument before the 3-panel and she is now a sitting judge as of January 1st, 2021 – supposedly replacing retiring Senior Judge Ken Marra at S.D. Fl. Marra’s feet are stuck in glue and the same is true as regards the Burke’s complaint with now Chief Judge Bill Pryor – yup, that’s right – the same Pryor in this panel…the Burkes complaint looks like it’s heading for it’s first annual anniversary of percolatin’.

Read on and watch the video towards the end of this article…it’s confirmation that federal judges practice the ‘rule of law’ when they feel like it and become mob Outlaws in Robes (legal term is committing a conspiracy) when it concerns the judiciary.

That’s why judges judgin’ judges is a very, very bad idea.

WHY DID JUDGE JILL A. PRYOR, 11TH CIR., RECUSE AFTER ORAL ARGUMENT?

Broward lawyer gets 10 years in prison for $826 Million Dollar Scam

April 1, 2014 | Republished by LIT; Jan 26, 2021

Well-known South Florida lawyer Anthony Livoti Jr. was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison Tuesday for his role in a massive life insurance investment scheme that defrauded 30,000 investors worldwide.

He was also ordered to pay more than $826 million in restitution.

Shackled and dressed in khaki jail scrubs, Livoti showed the emotion of a scared man fighting to save himself from spending the rest of his life in prison — but he also displayed the skills of a tough attorney who fought for his clients in more than 40 years of lawyering.

“I had a life that was always filled with joy. I now have a life that is filled with sadness,” Livoti said, speaking of the three months that he has already spent locked up in the Federal Detention Center in Miami since his conviction.

Livoti, 65, of Fort Lauderdale, was best known as a police union lawyer and for his advocacy work for the gay community. He was convicted in December after a three-month trial.

The Ponzi scheme bought out life insurance policies at discount prices from seniors and people who were dying of AIDS, cancer and other terminal conditions. In what became known as the Mutual Benefits Corp. scam, led by Joel Steinger, (who received 20 years jail time out of a possible 50 year sentence) the policies were sold to investors who expected to make a profit by receiving the full insured value when the beneficiaries died.

Jurors took an extraordinarily long eight days of deliberations to find Livoti guilty of four charges, including conspiring to commit fraud and money laundering, but found him not guilty of 20 related counts.

Livoti, the only defendant who went to trial in the case, finally acknowledged his guilt in court Tuesday after long denying it.

“I lost my way and I wish I could go back and change it,” Livoti said, apologizing to the victims for what he called the “terrible wrong” he committed.

Livoti insisted that he had thought he was innocent of the charges until he went to trial and heard all of the evidence against him. He said he had thought that the problems with Mutual Benefits were caused because medical advances were helping people with AIDS live longer than expected and even survive.

Sentencing guidelines suggested a punishment of 80 years. Assistant U.S. Attorney Karen Rochlin recommended a 30-year term and the defense asked for six years in prison – twice the punishment that Livoti would have received if he took the last plea agreement prosecutors offered before he went to trial.

Livoti, the son of a New York state judge, told U.S. District Judge Robert Scola Jr. that he had already lost his reputation, his career and his freedom.

He begged the judge to give him hope, which he said he had lost, that he would not die in prison and could some day be released to spend the rest of his life with his husband, Michael Porter. He said he also wants to try to make amends for his crimes. The felony convictions mean he will lose his law license.

“Judge, I am a life worth saving,” Livoti said.

The couple, who met in 1999 and later married in New York, lived a relatively modest lifestyle, Porter told the judge. They shared a 1,350-square-foot home in Fort Lauderdale that Livoti bought in the 1970s, and Porter works as a teacher in the Broward County School District, defense attorney Joel Hirschorn said.

Porter wept as he told the judge how much he respected Livoti’s long history of advocating for gay rights and talked about the charitable work they both did for people with AIDS, having both lost many close friends to the disease.

“Please take into consideration all of the good Tony has brought into the world,” Porter asked the judge.

The defense acknowledged that Livoti received $900,000 over about 10 years for his work for Mutual Benefits, but Porter said the couple never lived an extravagant lifestyle.

Dozens of supporters crowded into the courtroom and many more wrote letters urging leniency for Livoti, who they said worked for free or greatly reduced rates for police officers, gay causes and charitable groups. One former employee wrote that Livoti secretly refused to bill for low-income juvenile defendants he was court-appointed to represent because he hoped to make a difference in their lives.

Retired Broward County Judge Robert Zack, a 30-year friend, was one of the supporters who spoke on Livoti’s behalf in the federal courtroom in Miami.

“He has an impeccable reputation,” Zack said. “He’s a lawyers’ lawyer,”

Union representatives from the Fraternal Order of Police praised Livoti’s dedication while other members wrote separately to say they were disgusted by what he did and were upset that the union was officially supporting him.

Federal prosecutors said Livoti abused his position as an attorney and violated the public trust.

Steinger, a convicted felon who pleaded guilty last week to his ringleader role, hid his involvement in the fraud by installing a figurehead executive to operate Mutual Benefits, prosecutors said. Steinger and his co-conspirators, including Livoti, raised more than $1.25 billion from investors until they were shut down by federal regulators in 2004, according to prosecutors.

Starting in 1994, Mutual Benefits fraudulenty marketed the insurance policy death benefits, known as viatical settlements, by promising a fixed rate of return with low risk, investigators said. Money from new investors was used to pay premiums on life insurance policies that were purchased by earlier investors and to repay investors who wanted their money back, prosecutors argued.

Scola gave Livoti credit for his long history of charitable work and for his “significant community service,” but said the massive fraud was “something that’s way above the norm.”

Livoti played a third-tier role — below Joel Steinger and others — in the Fort Lauderdale-based scam, but it was still a significant role for a lawyer, Scola said.

When he finally heard his fate, Livoti looked down and silently cried, tears dripping from his face.

At the end of the sentencing, Scola asked the lawyers the routine legal question of whether they had any objections — but it was Livoti, not his defense team, who replied.

Livoti made an unusual request for the judge to immediately reconsider the sentence he had just imposed.

“That’s a long time for me,” Livoti said.

Scola replied that he had sentenced Livoti to one-eighth of the sentence recommended by the guidelines and said the victims “will probably not be celebrating my sentencing.”

“That’s basically my life,” Livoti replied, going on to list the ages at which his parents and other family members had died — mostly in their 60s and 70s — as Porter and some supporters sobbed.

Appellants and Denied Lower Court Intervenors Give Notice to Eleventh Circuit About Judge Jill Pryor

It is obvious the Burkes intend to file a second motion to disqualify Judge Pryor based the on new facts raised (sealing the motion to disqualify and refusing to unseal with ‘one-liner’ orders) and after the court denied the Burkes’ first motion to disqualify.

Every Tom, Dick and Harry Wants to Seal Records, But That’s Not How the Courts’ Work. Well, Theoretically

Secrecy is fine at the discovery stage, before the material enters the judicial record. But those documents, usually a small subset of all discovery, that influence or underpin the judicial decision are open to public inspection unless they meet the definition of trade secrets or other categories of bona fide long-term confidentiality.

Motion to Intervene is a Right of The Press and the Public

The public thus has a right to access complaints in pending cases, in the weeks before an answer is filed, in the months while a motion to dismiss may be pending, and after any motion to dismiss is granted.

Why is there no recusal recorded in order or note form anywhere on the docket for Judge Jill A. Pryor? And why did she only recuse AFTER oral argument?

Laws In Texas is a blog about the Financial Crisis and how the banks and government are colluding against the citizens and homeowners of the State of Texas and relying on a system of #FakeDocs and post-crisis legal precedents, specially created by the Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit to foreclose on homeowners around this great State. We are not lawyers. We do not offer legal advice. We are citizens of the State of Texas who have spent a decade in the court system in Texas and have been party to during this period to the good, the bad and the very ugly.
