Judicial Watch and Geauga County…it’s serious now

We read with great interest the article posted by our patriotic friends at Auburntownship.org.


Published Tuesday, May 28, 2019

Judicial Watch (JW), for those who are unfamiliar with them, is a conservative, non-partisan organization in Washington, D.C. that promotes integrity in government. Their motto says it all: “Because no one is above the law.” They use the open records act to investigate and uncover misconduct by public officials.

On April 2, 2019 JW sent a public records request to the office of Prosecutor James Flaiz requesting information about part-time investigator, Craig Young. Ironically, it is similar, although more extensive that the one submitted by resident Susan Daniels, who filed hers on December 11, 2018. Her record request became Exhibit A in a Writ of Mandamus filed in February 2019 because Flaiz refused to respond to her entire request. (Record request & Exhibit A)

Flaiz’s outside legal firm filed an Answer to the writ and demanded a Jury Trial. A mandamus hearing is normally a simple hearing where a person is asked if they are entitled to the public records and, in this case, Flaiz would have been told to hand them over. By asking for a jury trial, Flaiz’s attorneys have delayed the hearing and turned it into a trial, which will cost the taxpayers another $1,200.

No hearing date was set until Daniels called the bailiff for Judge Paschke, where the case was assigned. Daniels was told that that the pre-trial hearing date is set for December 9th.

Last week Flaiz’s lawyers, from the law firm of Manzanec, Raskin & Ryder, filed a Motion for a Summary Judgment. (Summary Judgment) Why they included a record request from Daniels for the Sheriff’s Dept. has everyone scratching their head.(For those who do not know, Ed Ryder is the Chairman for the Geauga County Board of Elections.)

In the Summary Judgment, they claim that Daniels’ request was “overly broad” and the Writ should be dismissed. They do not want to give Daniels the records for which she asked.

However, on May 17, 2019, William Marshall received a letter from Flaiz’s office telling him they are preparing all the records for him. So the request from JW, which was more extensive, is not “overly broad” but the one for a tax paying resident is?

The buffoonery at the prosecutor’s office continues.


[LFC Comments: It appears that the elected officials in Geauga County have lost sight of who works for whom.  The politicians “lawyer up” with the taxpayers paying the bills.  Notice that they demanded a jury trial just to make it more expensive for the taxpayers.  It is past time for exposing our elected officials and entrenched bureaucrats]

  27. We never edit any responses from our reader. We are big believers in the first amendment….

  28. Judicial Watch? Wow! That is impressive. So it appears that perhaps the little guy is going to get some backup. I really hope that the Lake County CABAL is paying attention to what is going down in Geauga County. They all need to come down out of their ivory tower and remember who they work for. It’s way past time for the people to step into their power…way past time.

    I have had a records request into the Port Authority for a very long time…over 3 months. Their new Chardon attorney has said that he expects that he will receive the records soon…and then he will review and redact. REALLY? Redact what? They refused to produce what I asked for because it was “overly broad” too. I refined my request and STILL am waiting. That was the attorney’s term. Now where have I heard that before…oh yes…in the article above.

    The people have a right to know why the Better Flip project is over budget by 100 percent. They have a right to know why Rantala spent 3 times the going rate to shore up that foundation. They have a right to know everything about that disaster of a project…and frankly the entire board needs to be removed for nonfeasance. But, Jerry won’t do that…because it might be bad for business…MyBoard you know. A former Board member and stellar bean counter (Partner at Cohen and Company Chris Madison) is Jerry’s business associate. I was shocked when I read that article…just shocked!

    I did write some of our more visible congress folks in D.C. about what is going on here in Lake County…because those representing us are not good people in my opinion. And with Judicial Watch involved in Geauga’s situation…well let’s just say it looks like Northeast Ohio is now on D.C.’s radar…good! Now hear this politicians and cabal members…we are coming for you…and you should be very afraid.

    I read an article recently about some mayor in Putin Bay…McCann I think. Anyway, he was enriching himself and his family members…he was so conflicted…sounds a lot like Jerry Cirino and his MyBoard. Anyway, the whole thing started with a citizen letter to the Ethics Commission that was forwarded to the AG. Jerry needs to go back home and retire. WE don’t want him as a Commissioner or a Senator. Same with Sleepy Ron Young! They are no different than MAXINE WATERS OR NANCY PELOSI!
