A reader says that the court has to make sure that attorney fees are really paid to outside paid attorneys, or else crooked lawyers would file a lot of frivolous lawsuits for which there is some hope of getting attorney fees. If courts make sure that attorney fees are paid to outside lawyers and at least two lawyers are in on a scam, then there is some chance that one of them will backstab the other.
I don't believe that the judge (Comm. Joseph) in my case has any interest in catching crooked lawyers. I caught my ex-wife's lawyer, Miss Jennifer J. Gray, lying under oath in order to defraud me out of some attorney fees, and the judge would not even let me have my constitutional right to confront the witnesses against me. His answer was just to pay her $10,000, no questions asked.
