L.A. Times Thug Henry Weinstein Repeats Vicious Slanders Against Federal Judge for the Umpteenth Time

Filed under: General,Scum — Patterico @ 12:57 am

Back in June 2004, I laid out extensive evidence that L.A. Times staff writer Henry Weinstein never, ever passes up an opportunity to repeat the nasty and false things that Stephen Yagman has said about Judge William D. Keller, for whom I clerked from 1995 to 1996.

Read the post for the details. Suffice it to say that Yagman said plenty of nasty things about Judge Keller. All were untrue. Yagman has since apologized. Yet Henry Weinstein never tires of repeating these defamatory statements.

By my count, The Times, virtually always in articles by Weinstein, repeated Yagman’s vicious slanders against Judge Keller sixteen times over the course of five years. It didn’t matter that the falsehoods were frequently irrelevant to the story. It didn’t matter that Yagman, hardly a guy prone to glib contrition, later apologized to Keller for the slanders. Most fundamentally, it didn’t matter that Yagman never produced evidence for outrageous statements such as his accusation that Keller was “drunk on the bench.”

Weinstein just likes repeating Yagman’s smears, because he doesn’t like Judge Keller. So, with the utter arrogance characteristic of journalists drunk on their own power, Weinstein repeated the spurious charges — again, and again, and again, and again, and again.

Read through the block quotes in the post linked above. They are all set out — all sixteen of them — by date. Just scan them quickly. You’ll see what I mean. This thug Weinstein just absolutely revels in the opportunity to take a shot at Judge Keller — every chance he gets.

Today’s article on Yagman’s indictment gives Weinstein a chance to repeat the slanders, and of course, he does not disappoint:

In 1994, a special disciplinary committee of the U.S. District Court in Los Angeles suspended him from practicing in the federal courts for two years for accusing U.S. District Judge William D. Keller of being anti-Semitic. Yagman also called Keller “dishonest … a bully and one of the worst judges in the United States.”

Why repeat that now? Doing so is completely unnecessary and a total cheap shot. In other words, classic Henry Weinstein.

The real bully in this story is hardly Judge Keller. The real bully is Henry Weinstein, who misuses the power of his position to repeat baseless calumny, because it so evidently gives him a cheap thrill to do so. Why else quote this slime so often?

He must really be smarting over the fact that his hero Yagman is facing an indictment.

  1. Is Keller by any chance related to Bush ? Just thought I’d ask. It all seems so familiar.

  2. “Asserting that federal charges are rare for the conduct alleged in the 58-page indictment, defense lawyer Barry Tarlow…”

    Federal charges in bankruptcy fraud, income tax evasion and the attendant money laundering that inevitably accompanies such charges is not rare. It is actually quite common.

    I also notice that ‘ole Harvey ommitted any reference to the Matasareanu case. I may be making a mountain out of a mole hill, but I think this ommission is intentional. The public was outraged by Yagman bringing chgarges against the LAPD in the North Hollywood shootout case and I think Harve knows that reminding the public of Yagman’s role in that case won’t win him any sympathy with the public.

  3. […] The guy who lionized Steve Yagman (the same Yagman who is now indicted for money laundering and tax evasion)? The guy who never missed a chance to slander the conservative judge I worked for? That guy . . . is a raging liberal?!?! […]

  4. The 9th circuit simplified concluded:
    the fact that judge william keller called the defendant wife and children, no provocation….”props”, is OK.
    the fact that judge william keller deny the jury the knowledge of a lesser law is OK.
    the fact that judge william keller allowed the prossecutors to open alone before weekend, is OK.
    the fact that judge william keller used body language and facial expressions againt the defendant to influance jury, is OK.
    the fact that judge william keller actively and boldly assist the prossecutors, is OK.
    judge william keller sentence of the defendant (a claim inocent no prior record) is too severe and reduced it.
    they know that the judge was accused before by attorneys of being racist and a bully.
    5 min of argument given

    I concluded that the 9th circuit court is not HONEST! and is not intelligent as much as they publish themselve.
    and the may be doing it again and again and again.

  7. why many attorneys call him killer keller?
    keller from my experience is exactly the way Yegman described and if you make a poll you find out the true keller is a man with agenda

  9. Between 1996 and 1997 I had at least 10 practicing lawers in Los Angeles stating the Federal judge William D. Keller is a racist that hate minorities and people of color! it is obvious that Attorney Stephen Yegman that stated “Keller is A racist and the worst judge in the history of the US” was broke down to submission by Kellers powerful conservative supporters.So if the system is realy honest it should poll the people how are working with keller and ask themself how come none of the rest of the Judges was accused like keller nick named “Killer Keller” by his peers?

  10. When I arrived to Federal building to have a judge assigned to my case I saw my attorney face She was white and clearly in fear I noted that but could not say a word.
    She was not there anymore when I meet Guy Iverson.
    He told me straight: there are 67 judges 65 of them are OK. one is senile, and one is a RACIST!!! you got him the notorious “Killer Keller” sorry, your case is going to appeal You got no chance.
    Then I Heard about an article in the LA Times:

    Los Angeles Times – federal judge William D. Keller
    – Venice civil rights lawyer Stephen Yagman contends that he violated no canon of ethics and should not be sanctioned for his withering criticism of U.S. District Judge William D. Keller, whom he accused of being anti-Semitic, drunk on the bench, ignorant, dishonest . . . a bully and one of the worst judges in the United States. Los-Angeles Times Tuesday, June 21, 1994″

    Then another attorney I’ve meet in MDC told me “Keller is a racist he hate minorities and people of colors”.
    Then I meet some more who told me more of the same.

    Now from my personal experience with Judge William D. Keller it fits the bill.
    He called me a liar after one question even though the supreme expert on lies Paul Ekman
    Claims in his books that there is no definite answers even for experts… but Keller can tell.
    Keller in the course of the preliminary hearings and 2 weeks trial constantly and actively assisted the prosecution which he headed so I heard for 35 years.
    He told them in the beginning they got no case, but instructed them how to make one!!!
    And I was naïve enough to believe that the role of a judge is more like a… referee.
    He displayed total ignorance of the law in respect. And ignored a relevant misdemeanor law in favor of a severe felony with mandatory jail sentence for a first time “offender” who claimed strongly for innocence (lesser included). And by doing so and his demeanor on the bench, his body language, and the disrespect he displayed to the defender and family (yelling at the defender wife after one time show that he know why she came:”to be a PROP. he was actually mislead the jury and manipulated them to convict.
    He excessively punished the defender a prominent artist an animator (http://www.eshkol.com), to the 9th circuit opinion who gives 5 minutes to my attorney to argue my complaints???????
    He was constantly threaten my attorney to send “him” to jail.
    The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, do not apply to him!
    All in all I Think the Judge William Keller is a shame to the proud American justice
    And since I do not have any respect to him or the system he serve for life and back him up.
