I was honored to represent seven Indian Probate Judges against the U.S Department of the Interior -- independent Administrative Law Judges who were harassed, intimidated and threatened with firing for resisting illegal pressures on their judicial independence. The judges were denied their fair day in court and denied an independent Administrative Law Judge to hear their case by the oxymoronic U.S. Merit Systems Protection Board during the first Bush Administration. The case was featured in the November 1991 ABA Journal cover story, and in a peer-reviewed scholarly article that I wrote for the ABA Judges' Journal.
Workplace bullies are sociopaths. Current laws do not protect us. Local workplace bullies like former St. Augustine City Manager WILLIAM BARRY HARRISS and his progeny, including Sheriff DAVID SHOAR, are a stench in the nostrils of the Nation. It's time for them to go. We need free democratic labor unions to help employees to stand up to the bullies, miscreants like St. Johns County Administrator MICHAEL DAVID WANCHICK and St. Augustine Beach City Manager BRUCE MAX ROYLE.
