TO TEXAS LAWYERS
AND JUDGES AS A CLASS MAKE ME SICK

UPDATE:  DOJ Washington downloads story.  This is simple my dear readers - they will interview Judge Hanen and ask him if he invited Tony Martinez to his home  They will then ask if Tony offered his wife work. The documents posted by the BV show Diane Dillard [Hanen] is being paid by the city.  Judge Hanen will not lie - he knows it will lead to an obstruction of justice charge"

Original Post

I am beyond proud of my 20 plus years of work against the corrupt judiciary.  The same people who use my work against me as a weapon to discredit me, are also the same people accusing the judiciary of every crime under the sun.  I stand by my work.

Let me say "as a class" because there are many honorable lawyers and judges.

Bingo was going great tonight - we had a lot of fun although it has been months since anyone at our table won.  A woman across from us won twice tonight, and a woman two tables over won for the third week in a row.

But then I got several emails concerning meetings at Judge Hanen's home with Tony Martinez wherein Tony was making job offers to Diane Dillard, Judge Hanen's wife.  During this time Tony Martinez had no way of knowing what evidence the FBI had on his son, Trey Martinez - I will say it - he was trying to influence Judge Hanen.  Whether Judge Hanen was influenced I have no way of knowing.  But I do know his wife got money out of the city of Brownsville because of Tony Martinez. 

The second Tony Martinez offered his wife work, Judge Hanen should have thrown him out of his house and reported it to the FBI.  The FBI and DOJ now have the general story.  Because my sources are in fear of retaliation they will never be named - we shall see if Judge Hanen tells the FBI the truth.  If he lies he can be charged with obstruction - and he will not be the first federal judge to go to jail for obstruction.  The first federal judge I ever went after  did 33 months in federal prison for obstructing a criminal investigation into his conduct. See Samuel Kent  It should shock no one that Montoya, McHale, Barton, and the Imp have all assailed me for my work against the judiciary.  I am very proud of my years of work against Samuel Kent - it took a lot of complaints from a lot of people before the FBI  was finally willing to listen to a victim.  But it was those years of complaints which slowly told the FBI something was profoundly wrong with Samuel Kent.

I have already contacted my primary sources within the DOJ and FBI.  I will not give up either of my sources or go into further detail.  My sources are not primary, but very credible.  I am  certain at least one will never speak to me again - but justice if too valuable to be left in the hands of people like Tony Martinez and Andrew Hanen.

The issue here is not if Hanen was influenced, but that Tony Martinez knew exactly what he was doing - he was offering a federal judge's wife  money in hopes of influencing Hanen's rulings concerning his son.  It does not matter if not one piece of evidence was kept out - Tony had no way of knowing what the FBI had or did not have - he was buying insurance to protect Trey, his son.

Judge Hanen's abusive conduct is not in any rulings, but in his failure to immediately report the event to the FBI.  He sat quiet and allowed his wife to continue to collect the money, while failing to report the event to the FBI.

I have put the FBI and DOJ on a deadline, and then I will be in Washington with a lawsuit against FBI Director Comey, AG Holder, Judge Hanen, and Tony Martinez alleging  conspiracy to cover-up Tony Martinez's attempt at influencing Judge Hanen with money by and through the judge's wife.

The Villalobos trial is now so tainted I believe a new trial must be granted with a possible outright dismissal.  Here is a kicker - Tony Martinez works in the same old jail building as Villalobos' attorney Norton Colvin. (Note in the original I had Mr. Colvin's first and last names reversed]   Their next conversation should be interesting.  I am not saying Mr Norton did anything wrong - I am just saying it should be interesting to hear their next conversation.  But then maybe Villalobos was a beneficiary of some rulings in order to protect Trey Martinez.   The FBI needs to bring in new agents to investigate this entire matter - not one agent should be from Texas.

For some 7-8 long years I have developed a loyal readership.  Independent of anything the Imp has to say I know my readership will continue to grow for one simple reason

No sacred cows including federal judges.

That is fair and balanced.

Other than Judge Hanen remaining silent about the meeting in his house there is zero evidence of wrongdoing. He knew Martinez had no what of knowing the FBI maybe had nothing on his son - but Hanen's wife still got the money

Any federal judge or his/her staff who sign on to the internet do it through Richardson Texas - apparently someone in the federal court house is reading today's post

I agree with you.Villalobos trial now appears tainted . Judge needs to dismiss or order a new trial. I also agree with you that agents from outside the area should investigate.The AUSA 's family getting jobs etc. thanks to ODLF never sat well with me .

I'm sorry, but I just don't see what the hubbub is all about here. Am I missing something? What evidence involving Trey did Hanen rule on? Why would that be sufficient to grant Villalobos a new trial? Do you have any evidence that Trey was even a target of the grand jury? Seems like a lot of assumptions.

As far as the DOJ, the public integrity section out of main justice has exclusive jurisdiction to investigate and prosecute federal judges. Local doj, including local FBI wouldn't be involved at all. But I just don't see what the alleged crime is and why DOJ would investigate. At the worst it seems like an ethical violation, but, based on facts you laid out, even that seems like a stretch.

Is there something more?

BobbyWC said...

This is how I know the entire above post is a distraction

[1] from square one I made a big issue of Hanen's issue as appearance only - so any suggestion that there is criminal conduct by Hanen I am not sure where that came from - I did an entire piece explaining the appearance issue and if you clicked on it the author pointed out how hard it be to prove on vagueness grounds.

My big issue in this post is and remains Tony Martinez went to Hanen's home at Hanen's invitation and during their discussions Martinez suggested Hanens wife for work.

I went out of my way with a Pacer search to show Martinez and his law partners have no cases before Hanen - I wanted that issue off of the table.

If we do as you say and not use assumption - then how in the hell does the justice department ever prosecute a case with circumstantial evidence? - the entire case against Villalobos required the jury assume the money order money was kick-backs - pure assumption not one piece of evidence -

I raised the issue that Tony was trying to buy insurance for his son Trey - Tony had no way of knowing what if anything the FBI had on his son - so you buy insurance just in case. I never said the FBI has anything - but Tony had no way of knowing what they had or did not have - so offer the judge's wife a job and hope for influence. This does not mean hanen was influence - but by not throwing Tony out and reporting it to the FBI he showed poor judgment

The DOJ Public Integrity unit would not be the one to investigate Tony's intent.

The federal panel which oversees judicial conduct would never take his case because appearance is so subjective it is up to how the people choose to see it.

I know from my responses from lawyers at the court house over the last two days that they are sickened by this

Judge Hanen did not have to rule on anything which helped Trey because he agreed to nothing - he just sat there and allowed Tony Martinez to offer his wife work knowing full well Tony's son Trey was Limas right hand man in his campaign . I heard the tapes which were used involving Trey

Nothing for a father to proud of.

So based on all of the above your entire post is bogus and designed to distract

My focus from square one has been appearance as to Judge Hanen and it remains at appearance

You seem to think it is 100% acceptable for a federal judge to sit in his home and do nothing while an attorney/mayor offers his wife work at the same time the attorney/mayor knows the judge may be looking at damning evidence against his son.

So sir, Brownsville does not agree with you. But then appearance is a subjective issue

Even if this has legs, Do you think the DOJ would do a legitimate investigation that might undermine a high profile victory? Considering their prior "investigation" into their own ausas receiving bribes from Oscar de la Fuente..

Just be careful. Look at the prosecutions of Barrett Brown, leakers, and the treatment of greenwald, Miranda, Laura piotras. The federal government doesn't take kindly to journalistic criticism, first amendment or not.

I love Monday Bingo - we laugh - I get real confused with the numbers and get behind - they post the next number on the screen before they call it - to win they have to call it - so I am trying to mark the number they did call while people are calling out the next number - and then the cell phones drive me nuts - and the talking none stop

So I go and relax - miss numbers and hope one of the old ladies are keeping an eye on my cards.

One of these ladies asked if I was in fear of getting arrested for what I do - I said I can use the vacation - my health would require the medical ward - I sleep with a CPAP - no CPAP I die in my sleep - plus the medications

people like me sometimes get in protective custody and get a private room and shower

I said I am cool - I can use a 30 day vacation of quiet

I fear nothing - God has my back - if he needs me in jail he has his reasons and I will embrace that result - my faith is pure

With my faith I fear nothing because I know God walks with me and guides me - and if I mess up it is because I was not listening

Whoa! Calm down buddy. Don't take it so personal, I wasn't trying to distract I was just curious as to your evidence and reasoning. Again I just see wild assumptions.

So I guess the allegation is that the brownsville mayor tried to bribe a federal judge. Ok. What leads you to this conclusion other than his wife was hired by the city and Martinez visited the house?

When did this meeting occur (would be very relevant)?

What makes you think Trey was involved in anything illegal or improper? Way makes you think Tony thought that there might be evidence again his son? Or that this employment offer would influence Hanen in anyway?

What makes you think that Hanens wife didn't earn this job on her own merits?

Does hiring a spouse of a federal judge automatically equal to a bribe? Can spouses work? If dont know what evidence the FBI has on my family members, if I hire a spouse of a local federal judge for a job that she's qualified for does that = a bribe?

You said you heard the tapes involving Trey? So the judge ruled they were admissible? Inadmissible? What did they say?

Again just seems like wild assumptions. Fighting corruption is obviously important, but this is just reckless and borderline defamatory.



BobbyWC said...

First of all the spouses of federal judges get hired all of the time - Sandra Day O'Conner recused herself in every case her husband's firm had before the Supreme Court

Every word out of Limas mouth was vulgar - he called the woman killed by Livingston the whore who got him in trouble.

I could not even type what I was hearing because it was so vulgar - and Trey was on the phone listening to him like normal conversation.

here are my trial notes from May 13 on Trey - he was not on trial so his recording was not what matter - but here is a summary

"Trey Martinez showed he was willing to play dirty. Peter Zavaletta who wants everyone to believe he is the hero in this case is recorded helping run cover for Limas.

Neither of these two are on trial and their testimony really matters very little so I am willing to comment on them. The tapes were more about what Limas knew and when, than what Trey Martinez or Peter Zavaletta knew or did not know."

This is the tape we know about - we have no way of knowing if there were others kept out - but that is not the point - all Tony Martinez knew was Limas was talking - he had no way of knowing what was on any tapes - so you buy insurance.


But because you want to play the distraction game you seem to not want to discusss the issue

No one knows what they had or did not have - I have said that over and over and over again - but it does not suit your narrative so you ignore it.

Tony had no way of knowing what they had - all he knew is they had enough to get Limas to confess -

People buy insurance all of the time they do not need.

You believe hiring the wife of a federal judge while that judge is looking at evidence which involves your son is okay - fine my readers know your standards

I believe rational people find that unethical - Tony had no idea what if anything they had on Trey - I have never said they had anything on Trey - and no one knows what was kept out

It is very well possible Tony bought insurance when he did not need it - but you seem to think under the facts it is okay for a father to hire the wife of a federal judge at a time that judge may be reviewing evidence involving father's son - again Tony had no way of knowing what if anything they had - all he knew is Limas was giving everyone up - so buy insurance

But even that does not mean Judge Hanen was going to allow himself to be influenced.

Like I said from square one - bad judgment and major appearance problem

This is where this begins and ends.

But you want to bring in questions of actual criminal conduct when you know full well no one will ever get access to all of those files for review other than the parties.


Again the issue is appearance

This isn't a case where a spouse's employer is counsel or a party to a case. This isn't a case where a spouse's employer was a witness at trial. Hell this isn't even a case where a spouse's employer was involved at all. If that's all there is I don't see the appearance problem.

But that would be a legitimate question and a legitimate post. But instead of stopping there you take giant leaps to the FBI needing the question Hanen and his exposure to instruction of justice charges (?). That villalobos' verdict should be overturned (still curious on that one). With the biggest assumption being that the city would only hire Hanens wife as a bribe (how insulting to the wife!). And that Hanen either knew or should have known that no one would hire his wife without it being a bribe.

And you say that you don't accuse Hanen of criminal conduct, but your post belies that. It reminds me of the person who says I'm not racist but...(insert racist comment) News flash, it's a crime for a federal official to knowingly accept a bribe (or insurance or whatever you term it) as your post directly implies.

And if you want to know if Hanen rejected evidence related to Trey, it's easy to find out. Find the proposed exhibits lists, counsels objections, and Hanens rulings. It's all public record. And if for whatever reason you can't find out that crucial evidence, maybe you should consider that before throwing out wild accusations against innocent people that you can't walk back.

That Hanens wife works for the city is newsworthy and raises some worthy questions. The rest of the junk in your post is reckless and distracts from your credibility on subjects important to the community.

BobbyWC said...

You simply refuse to accept everything I did to take the issue of a bribe off the table - if Judge Hanen knew in his mind Martinez would get no favorable treatment Judge Hanen is not involved in a bribe

he sees this as his wife being allowed to work

I do not even have a problem with her working for the city - except it was not the city commission or city mananger who hired her - it was Tony

remember this is the same Tony who failed to tell the city commission that his law partner represented the seller in a major real estate deal with the city

As to judge Hanen all we have is an appearance issue - he allowed Tony to play his game because he knew - "my wife is allowed to work" and yes she is

What you absolutely will not acknowledge is this is not about rulings - I took that off the table when I said Pacer shows Tony's firm has no cases before Hanen -

This is not about what the feds had - this is about Tony knowing Limas was telling on everyone and he just wanted to be nice to the judge by giving his wife some work.

As to Villalobos - I said it could go either way - it could be he was hurt by a ruling or maybe helped by a ruling.

Here is another one of your cons - yes I have seen some witness lists but I also know there are endless sealed filings I cannot see or comment on.

This is why I put so much of this entire story on the appearance issue and went out of my way to point out Tony has no cases before Hanen and it is really about no one knowing - especially Tony - so you buy insurance

From Judge Hanen's point of view the fact you do not see it is disturbing that Tony is offering his wife work at a time he has to rule on evidence which could "not will" make his son look bad is very telling you are defending Tony Martinez

No my dear - Judge Hanen should have excused Tony from his home and reported the exchange to the FBI and both the DOJ and Vilallobos counsel

and you know what - maybe he did in one of the many, many sealed documents - but his wife still got the money

I have done nothing but praise Judge Hanen for his handling of the trial - I was there - this is why I refuse to push an argument beyond poor judgment and appearance

It would shock me if he did anything favorable for Tony

Judge Hanen just figured this is so small no one will notice and the record will show he made no rulings favoring Trey Martnez

But that is not the issue - it is the appearance - which causes the people to not trust the judges

Another thing on Tony - I reject 90% of the leads I get on him - it is very clear at every level of city government they hate him and want him gone - I am fed garbage all of the time

I stayed out of the firefighters issue because I know virtually everything Montoya and Barton were reporting was all bullshit - neither had an interest to get to the facts.

As a mediator I have mediated enough cases, represented enough plaintiffs, and enough defendants to know that you can have an insurance rep who will listen to no one - the insurance company wants to send a message - they do not settle - and it worked - in Dallas good luck finding an attorney to take a car accident case unless you have broken bones or ended up in surgery for something.

I get that Navarro is not making the calls on what settles and what does not - it is a policy decision of the Administration and a stupid one at that. So what? navarro should turn down the business because of a stupid policy made by the city administration - not the elected officials

My point is - I can write on Tony every day - but I know I am being fed a lot trash based on a hatred of Tony - so I just delete the emails and they move on to other bloggers

Your 2nd post in the comments here directly accuses judge Hanen of committing a crime: "He knew Martinez had no what of knowing the FBI maybe had nothing on his son - but Hanen's wife still got the money"

If a federal official knowingly accepts money offered as a bribe that is a crime.

It doesn't matter if you preface that accusation by saying you're not accusing Hanen of criminal conduct; you still made that accusation. It's like saying I'm not accusing johnny of a crime, but he stole that money from the store.

You keep saying this is only about appearances (despite then impliying criminal conduct/) but trey wasn't a party, a counsel or even a witness in any of the cases. You admit that you have no evidence that he was involved in anyway with the cases, but then make a wild assumption that there was evidence that could make him look bad.

You have no evidence of that! You havent even referenced any evidence of why it would be reseasonable for tony to believe his son might need "insurance." And despite that you are willing to defame a federal judge and his innocence wife, not to mention the martinezs.

BobbyWC said...

here is the proof you are about defending Tony and his family and have no interest in the facts - you said "but then make a wild assumption that there was evidence that could make him look bad."

I repeatedly said Tony had no way of knowing if there was anything and that in fact he may have been buying insurance for no reason - hence i am not saying there was no known evidence which made Trey look bad - I am saying Tony had no way of knowing if such evidence existed - all he knew and everyone knows this but you - Limas was giving up everyone.

And for the record I have made clear I did not believe a word from Limas - he could have accused Tony and Trey of everything under the sun and I would have said "I do not believe Limas."

As to your first part - one I see nothing which Diane Dillard did wrong - she was offered a job and she took it - it's her right

Judge Hanen knew Trey Martinez was a key witness in terms of Abel Limas - they went out of their way to play a tape of his conversation with Limas - we have no way of ever knowing what did not get in because of all the sealed documents.

For me it is bizarre that if someone offers someone's wife a job under the guise of a favor that constitutes a bribe

I have made clear - I do not believe Judge Hanen ever considered doing anything for Tony - but any appellate lawyer knows how nearly impossible it is to overturn an evidenciary ruling and Judge Hanen knows this - evidenciary rulings are the easiest place to hide biased rulings.

If Judge Hanen never intended to act for Tony's son where is the bribe - an offer is not an acceptance

His wife has a right to work - so she works - like I said had the city manager hired her this would be a different story - unless it could be shown he did it under command of Tony Martinez her hiring would be meaningless.

My issue remains and the overwhelming support I am getting in posts, emails, phone calls and the halls of the court house is Judge Hanen showed really bad judgment.

He is a popular judge which is why so many are shocked by his poor judgment

But to say because someone may offer money to do something wrong - which for the record I have never accused Tony of doing outright "judge we will hire your wife if"

She has a right to work - this is the easiest con in the world to hide.

It's not in the closet anymore

And if you think I have hurt Tony's reputation you have not been to city hall - they would break out in celebration if he resigned - Pat Ahumada is a hero in the eyes of the city workers compared to Tony Martinez - he destroyed his own reputation and no one else.

Now it never occurred to me, but if the COB has any cases before Judge Hanen he certainly needs to recuse himself - I will do the Pacer check - at this point it is not worth the cost

I think the point is made.

Thanks for letting me make my point. Just so you know I could not care less about the Martinez's or the Hanen's. Not every fact or argument that doesn't fit perfectly in your worldview is indicative of bias, coverups, or nefarious motives as you often suggest. What's more concerning is your frequent habit of shooting first and asking questions later, facts and innocent people be damned.

BobbyWC said...

First I do not think it is Trey Garza- he has no problem letting me know when he is posting.

But as to the above comment - shooting from the hip and ask questions later - really?

I verified they were married - did not trust the source - I verified she does work for the city - did not trust the source - I posted an entire article to help my readers understand the key issue "appearance of improprierty" so they knew the focus is not about a bribe but appearance -

I went out of my way to show Martinez and his firm have no cases before Judge Hanen

I repeatedly praised Judge Hanen for his courtroom manner in the Villalobos trial and stated I saw nothing which indicated bias

According to the poster this is shooting from the hip and asking questions later

No - you simply refuse to accept that it looks bad and as a consequence it makes Judge hanen look bad - not his wife - she has every right to work - Judge Hanen showed incredibly bad judgment - does this mean he is corrupt? - no -

When you become a judge you know the deal - and you must always be on the watch for these things - an innocent act can cause the people to lose confidence in the judiciary - and that is bad

A judge in Dallas sold his sail boat to a lawyer who had a big case before the judge - the appearance problem cost him reelection

When you are a judge you never - ever - do business with someone who might have business before your court - a simple rule which avoids all appearances of impropriety

You verified that Hanens wife works/worked? for the city. If the extent of your post was that fact and the logical question s that arise from that relationship it would have been a great and ethical piece of investigative journalism.

Unfortunately you gave in to your worst temptations and started wild unfounded accusations. that this had to be a bribe. That judge Hanen knew or should have known it was a bribe and should have kicked tony out of his house and called this FBI. That the FBI will question Hanen for his activity and investigate martinez for this bribe or you will sue everyone. That hanen has exposure to possible obstruction of justice charges. That Villalobos now "must" be granted a new trial and have his case then possibly dismissed. That poor ms Dillard was the conduit of an attempted bribe of a federal official.

That's shooting first with no verification of what you allege.

What are Ms Dillard's qualifications? Did it ever occur to you that she was offered the job because she was the best candidate? What exactly are her qualifications? Maybe you should have looked that up before hurling accusations.

And about that "appearance" problem. What exactly was trey Martinez role in any of these cases? He wasn't a party. He wasn't counsel. He wasn't a witness. If trey was a party or a counsel and Hanens didn't recuse himself then yes there would be an appearance problem. But that's not the case here.

BobbyWC said...

first of all, Trey was a witness at the trial - his recorded conversations were evidence considered by the jury

Second you totally refuse to even consider the point

Tony had no idea what Limas was telling the feds - why do you refuse to accept this - again an insurance policy

As to Diane Dillard - why would I question her qualifications? - it was meaningless to the story - she could have been the most qualified person on the planet and it would change nothing

Further, lawyers reading this were able to read her filings for the city and see that she is very competent -

Her qualifications meant nothing to this story - she individually means nothing to this story

It begins and ends with as a judge you know you never do business with lawyers who may have an interest in your court

Tony had no way of knowing what Judge Hanen would or would not see

Limas was talking and Tony knew that -everyone knew that -

Again just because someone tries to get me to do something does not mean I accept - there is zero evidence Judge Hanen ever intended to act on Tony's con - but that does not mean there should not be an investigation

As I have said their is zero evidence Judge hanen did anything criminal - his mistake was not reporting it - which is not a crime

I am certain other people have tried this same con with many judges - and the judges just smile and move on

But they should not - they need to report it

You are going no where with these endless posts - have you noticed no one is coming to your defense or the defense of Tony Martinez

As to Judge Hanen - all I can say the lawyers I saw at the court house were saddened because he is truly liked and considered fair and honest

I bid you adieu. I think my point was made. The sad part here is that I think there actually is a newsworthy story here about Hanen's dealings with the COB. What frustrates me is that story is drowned out by all the other conspiracy theories and wild, unfounded accusations. People are going take one look at your post and instead been concerned and asking more questions about what happened between hanen and Martinez, they are going to dismiss all of it because of all the irresponsible speculation. And that's unfortunate.

What you don't understand is that all of the unfounded accusations and defamation makes you lose credibility on some of the real, verified, and important work you do. That's what I was trying to get across; but if you want to believe that I'm part of some conspiracy to protect people I've never met and don't care about be my guest...keep on tilting at windmills

BobbyWC said...

Sir, you simply refuse facts

I from square one made it clear Judge hanen was fair and honest during the trial

I did not go into his wife's qualifications because it was a non issue - her filing proves that

I never accused hanen of agreeing to work with martinez on anything

It is all about appearance - that was my focus to the point of doing a special post to help my readers understand the appearance issue.

I stopped my readers from speculating about martinez getting favorable rulings from Hanen by pointing out he had no cases before Hanen.

Where is the defamation? - none -

It is your position that when someone offers the spouse of a judge a job while in the judge's home it is no big deal - it is

The facts are the facts which you do not want to face

Tony Martinez like everyone else had no idea what the feds had -

Trey Martinez was heard by the jury making light of the endless vulgarities made by Limas

I'm sorry but no good Catholic would give the time of day to someone who speaks like Limas - I was so offended I could not even type his words - but for Trey Martinez it was business - I was raised in a home to walk away from anyone who speaks how Limas speaks.

This is fact all heard by the jury

While it is nice to be remembered . . . I have not posted till now . . . Bobby has just made some pretty wild accusations against several people for whom I have tremendous respect. I have had the honor of representing many clients in front of Judge Hanen over the years, he has never done anything to lead me to believe his is unfair or dishonest . . .EVER!

Trey Martinez and his father Tony are both very intelligent and successful lawyers, and yes they are people whom I respect tremendously. I do not believe a word that Bobby has posted so far.

As for Diane Dillard, I have met her many times and she has always been a wonderful person who loves her family more than anything else. It is a shame that Bobby has drug her into the public light, she has never asked for it. She also happens to be an extremely qualified real estate attorney.

I think Bobby is walking in a no mans land of Blogidociousness . . . thats right I said it Blogidociousness! I want to be credited with creation of the word B-L-O-G-I-D-O-C-I-O-U-S-N-E-S-S . . . It means that his blogging life has led to him to believe wild and crazy conspiracy theories which cannot possibly be supported by the facts.

Bobby, you claim you are document driven, yet your entire theory is based on the alleged conversation between two people that you did not even witness . . .at Judge Hanen's house, where I am sure you have never been. What document supports this theory? NONE!

Sorry my blogging friend, you are way out there on this one. I wish you would retract your story because it is seems to be total crap.

BobbyWC said...

First of all Trey - I have said nothing to suggest that Diane Dillard is anything but a good lawyer - so your implications otherwise are only in your mind.

I posted the document to show she did work for the city which proves she did work for the city - so again your claim it is not true is only in your mind because of your bias for Tony Martinez.

You are not helping yourself Trey -Judge Hanen has already verified the meeting - you are making a fool of yourself - but your comments that it could not have happened only tells my readers that if it did happen then it is bad.

Judge Hanen has already verified the meeting to those who needed verification.

I went out of my way to make the issue appearance - you seem to not even want to acknowledge that

I never mentioned Diane Dillard in a negative light - I never said anything about her work - period - I never said anything about her as a person - this only exists in your mind

I made it a point in my posts to repeatedly state Judge Hanen is a good man and a good judge - so your claims are only in your mind

You need to take off your blindfolds

A man who use to hunt and hang with your grandfather the judge has told the story many times

He use to say "I have so much power I do not even know what to do with it." This man would take your grandfather bfood when he was working out of his house with a clerk - that is when I met him - they were friends until the day he died.

Trey you seem to have no idea what is going on with judges and how they think.

What is sad is, Judge Hanen has already verified the meeting - so you have only served to make a fool of yourself defending Tony Martinez

You remind me of the parents I met after the Dallas Diocese case - even in the case of a priest who confessed to molesting her son, the mother said "No it is not true, the priest is only confessing so my son feels better." Some people cannot handle facts because they are blindfolded.

And Trey you are a liar with your blindfolds - you know as well as I do - Tony Martinez had no way of knowing what the feds had on his son - you know that - but you will never admit to it because it does not serve your world of ignoring judicial misconduct.

Everyone in the courtroom was offended by Judge Limas language while talking to Trey Martinez - I heard it - did you - everyone in the court was offended - but not Trey he just kept on helping Limas - it says a lot about you that you think this makes Trey a good man.

Now Trey's brother the priest is a great man -

Every member of the city commission save Gowen stated Tony withheld from the city commission his partner has handling a million plus dollar deal for a client with the city.

It is clear you worship Tony Martinez and no amount of evidence will convince you otherwise.

My source contacted me tonigh concerned if I would release the names of my sources - I said no and the FBI knows it - but I also told him I know Judge Hanen well enough to know it would never come to that because he would tell the truth and that would end it - bad judgment and everyone moves on

Judge Hanen is a good man and will not lie to investigators and that will end it.

"Judge Hanen is a good man and will not lie to investigators and that will end it."

Then why cast aspersions? Bobby, you just made the case against you.

I wish you had never written the original post . . .it has done significant damage to any credibility you may have had.

Trey Garza said...

Please leave Al Senteno out of this.

BobbyWC said...

Trey you refuse to address the facts - I repeatedly went out of my way to make this an appearance issue and it is - to a lawyer at the court house they were disappointed to learn the story - I have never met a lawyer who did not like Judge hanen - I have repeatedly stated he is a good and fair judge

Why - because it shuts down those who want to allege corruption against him

And Trey you know as well as I do - I have sent you posts I never posted because they were personal attacks on you - you know I am careful about this - the story is solid - the documents prove Diana Dillard got work with the city. the document also shows she is good at her job.

You do not want people to know how the system works - so you attack those who speak out

Not one lawyer in the court house gave me a negative comment about the research or story - they get the appearance issue and it bothered them

But again - I repeatedly went out of my way to say Judge Hanen is a fair judge - I went out of my way to note he had no cases with Tony martinez, I went out of my way to say he was very fair during the Villalobos trial

With the exception of the appearance issue I defended him at every turn as an honest judge.

I never questioned Diane Dillard's competency - there was no reason to - she has a right to work - the filing I post showed she is very competent

Facts do matter

Trey is a part of the problem .He jumped on Emma too.He told her"to get over it!" It is obvious that he wants business as usual...... You hit the nail on the head ;He wants you to quiet down.It is a shame that he is basically saying let the people have their Constitutional rights shat on .You and Emma should just get over it and shut up.Trey , It is you who needs to "Get over it" and shut up.You are a disgrace to the court that was named after your grand daddy! Shame on you!

Trey Garza was raised around the privileged class - he sees them as beyond reproach - his blindfolds make reality difficult

he is the general standing with the dictator as the peons take control asking, "but why?"

For Trey the privileged class is not to be assailed - hence privileged

I have rejected tons of accusations agsint him and even sent them to him for a heads up

I will continue to reject comments against him - I rejected one already this morning

I have never told anybody to "shut up" or quiet down. Especially not Emma or Bobby. Zeke, if you must know, I was misinterpreted. I had originally intended to joke with Emma about her trying to not get overwhelmed. That comment then spiraled into a direction that was clearly antagonistic towards me, but that is fine, I learned my lesson. If I am going to be willing to comment then I have to be willing accept any misinterpretation or criticism that follows.

That being said, I am assuming this is Zeke, because of a conversation I had with Luis Saenz about you earlier this week.

Furthermore, I am not sure what "business as usual" means. If "business as usual" means doing the best you can for your clients on a daily basis, then I am fine with that.

Lastly, my comments above are critical of BWC's original post concerning persons whom I know and respect. BWC has always welcomed open debate and discussion, even if it means criticism of his own posts.

Zeke, I am sorry that my sister-in-law was elected to a city commission post that you could not run for because of some reason or another (I think there was a Brownsville herald story about it), but I have never done anything to deserve your comments above.

Bobby, please do not interpret my criticism of you in this thread as an attempt to shut you up or quiet you down.

Do you know for a fact that Judge Hanen admitted to the meeting? He has earned my respect;but he should have recused himself from the start.The appearance only issue still taints the picture.Re: Trey ,he just needs to stop whining like a spoiled little brat .He is after all a grown man and capable of knowing the difference between right and wrong..Maybe you can lend him your balls,since he appears not to have any... Keep fighting for justice Bobby!

don't feel sorry for anyone here especially the mayor and his kid.I guess for years he has been under the radar now that everything he does is in the light people are really starting to figure him out.MAYOR WANTED to be a rock star now he has to deal with it its not like the past where every deal was hush hush.

BobbyWC said...

I almost rejected the balls comment - but I do not know - my view is anyone willing to put their name to their comments does not have a balls problem
I just dislike the comment - gonads would be better since both men and women have gonads

My source is telling me that Judge Hanen is being honest

Why I got hard about T Garza's comments about Diane Dillard is because she only took a job - that is it - I do not want anyone thinking bad about her - she took a job - that is not the problem

The problem is simple - Tony Martinez had no way of knowing what the feds knew or did not know

personally in my opinion he knew very little about Judge Hanen and insulted him by offering his wife work.

I have been so careful about stressing appearance because as to Judge Hanen that is all we have - as to his wife - she is just a part - with zero evidence she did anything wrong and zero reason to question her competency.

I know the appellate court - at most they might say "yes poor judgment, but harmless error"

I think Judge Hanen will be a lot more careful in the future - I would be shocked to see a repeat of this

Based on everything I know about him this was 100% out of character for him - at the time he may not have even seen the problem - oh but he does now

I am not Zeke.I am just a concerned citizen.You did tell Emma to "uugh get over it" and then you asked her "why was she so angry?" And "who wronged her?"and then you whined about how hard it is for you and how corruption sucks.... Then you went after Bobby for trying to make a point regarding Judge Hanen's error of judgement.Business as usual is shitting all over the people's rights...you told Emma that "you wish you were more than you were" seems to me that you realize you should step up but you do not have the gonads to do so ...so why try to silence Emma and Bobby when they show that they do? In my very humble opinion,you owe it to your Grand Daddy's legacy to take off the blind fold.

I don't think putting your name next to those posts proves you have balls.It does little more than prove Emma and Bobby's points.It also shows that you choose to blind yourself,that way you don't have to use your balls .and you choose to silent the voices that actually have the balls to seek justice.Thank You Trey for your " inside point of view".
