Insider trading refers to the collusion between different parties to profit from illegally obtained information that is non public.
So what can you call collusion between members of the justice system who have sworn to uphold the law of the state and protect citizens’ rights but who choose to ignore the laws on the books and prefer to uphold their own laws?
Perhaps Insider Judicial?
That seems to be the case inside the courtroom of the Honorable Judge Lawrence Joseph O’Neill of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California, which is located in Fresno, California.
As a former Police officer with the City of San Leandro from 1973 to 1976, Judge Lawrence J. O’Neill would seem to be the perfect candidate to sit on the bench and render the most fair and equitable decisions for the people who appear before him.
Judge was appointed as a Federal Magistrate Judge in 1999 and served out his full eight year term until 2007, when he was elevated by former President George W. Bush to the Federal Judiciary ranks on September 6, 2007, receiving his commission on April 17, 2008.
Notwithstanding his outstanding achievements, Magistrate Judge Lawrence J. O’Neill had already started to show his inclination for disregarding the law of the land by making decisions that were not within his judicial power to make.
In 2006, before ascending to District Court Judge, Magistrate Judge Lawrence J. O’Neill exceeded his own authority and issued an illegal search warrant against a California resident. When motion was filed that the warrant was illegal, Magistrate Judge Lawrence J. O’Neill denied the motion, again exceeding his authority. Not until it was pointed out to him that Magistrate Judges do not have the authority to issue such orders that he finally relented and vacated his very own orders.
