CLEVELANDURANNEWS.COM-CLEVELAND, Ohio-A comprehensive investigation by Clevelandurbannews.com and Kathywraycolemanonlinenewsblog.com, Ohio's most read Black digital newspaper and Black blog, reveals that Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas Judge Nancy Margaret Russo is covering-up public corruption as to falsification of public records of criminal felony cases on her docket by County Clerk of Courts Nailah Byrd, and Byrd's subordinates, and by prosecutors, and corrupt fellow common pleas judges such as Judge Joseph Russo, whose cases are sometimes transferred to her docket after he quits them following documented impropriety.


The investigation by Clevelandurbannews.com and Kathywraycolemanonlinenewsblog.com reveals similarities to the motion picture movie 'Mississippi Burning,' regarding the height of racial discrimination and Civil Rights violations and the attack on the Black community by White supremacists, including judges, police and other law enforcement authorities, and corrupt and racist prosecutors.


A high tech lynching it surely is, and against the Black community with an undisputed vengeance, due process be damned.


Nancy Russo, 60 and a seasoned common pleas judge, is also illegally releasing secret grand jury testimony that is to remain hidden per state law with appointed indigent defense counsel from the office of the county public defender, led by Asst Public Defender Scott Roger Hurley, and using it against Black defendants to try and get plea deals in cases where their poor Black clients are falsely accused of assaulting White police officers accused of harassing them. (Editor's note: Judge Nancy Russo is also is refusing to remove indigent counsel such as Scott Roger Hurley who are accused of colluding with the court and the prosecution against Black defendants, even when such indigent counsel, Hurley in particular, violate her own court orders for discovery and to conduct proper pretrial investigations for their indigent clients. Instead, the judge seeks to proceed to trial to ensure illegal and unconstitutional convictions of misrepresented poor, Black defendants).


The illegally released grand jury testimony is that of corrupt White cops who have lied to the grand jury to get innocent Blacks indicted on charges they assaulted them, including from Lt Dale Orians of University Heights, an allegedly deranged cop who has stalked Black female residents and broken into their homes, stealing their property with the support of the city and county prosecutor and Mayor Susan Infeld, whom voters ousted in November for alleged theft in office, assisted theft of homes of Black residents, and racism against Black residents.


The falsified case docket entries, also called journal entries of case proceedings, are crucial and can determine whether cases are dismissed and whether maliciously prosecuted people, mainly Blacks, are falsely convicted and imprisoned with one of the 34 largely White judges of the general division court of common pleas at the helm.


In one instance the clerk's office lies on the case docket and says a Black defendant accused of assaulting White cops was arrested the day of the alleged incident, the judge colluding with the prosecution and cops to deny the Black defendant's motion for correction of the case docket on this matter.


Data also show that Judge Nancy Russo is denying motions or requests by maliciously prosecuted Black defendants to correct corrupted criminal case dockets of her colleague Judge Joe Russo, whom chief common pleas court Judge John Russo protects by assigning his cases to Judge Nancy Russo, after Judge Joe Russo quits the cases after the Black defendants file complaints against him with the Ohio Supreme Court to seek his removal from the cases for documented bias and malfeasance.


 

In one case Judge Joe Russo, after doubling a Black defendant's bond after it had been paid just to keep the defendant in jail who was accused of assault of some White cops, actually had Clerk of Courts Nailah Byrd falsify the case docket to say the defendant at issue had escaped. This was to cover-up that the case must be dismissed because the defendant at issue was denied a preliminary hearing within 10 days in custody in the county as required by state law, and was not indicted prior to that 10 day period.


Judge Nancy Russo's corruption comes less than three weeks after an FBI and IRS raid on Cleveland City Hall and as to a continuing FBI probe over the last nine years that has netted some 61 guilty pleas or guilty verdicts, including prison for two former common pleas judges, a 28 year prison sentence for racketeering and other crimes in office to former county commissioner Jimmy Dimora, and a 22-year prison sentence to Dimora's sidekick,  former county auditor Frank Russo.


Most of the aforementioned are Democrats as Cuyahoga County, which is roughly 29 percent Black and includes the city of Cleveland, is a Democratic stronghold.


In a particular case in which a female Black defendant is accused of assaulting but not touching or harming four White and burley University Heights cops who came to her home slinging guns and rifles and calling her a nigger, all without a warrant or a 9-1-1 call to police dispatchers, Judge Nancy Russo denied a motion by the defendant to correct the  case docket lie that the defendant was arrested the day of the alleged assault, a lie fed to the grand jury to help get an illegal indictment.


Such indictment originally charged the defendant with two counts of assault on the two White cops, whom she did not even touch, police say,  and two counts of obstructing official business.


But Clerk of Courts Nailah Byrd upped the charges by falsifying the case docket to four counts of assault on a police officer and four counts of obstructing official business, all without a court order or amendment, and all illegal and unconstitutional activity that mandates dismissal of the case per the criminal rules and the Ohio Constitution. (Editor's note: Judge Nancy Margaret Russo seeks to cover up fixed indictments that mandate dismissal of the cases  by proceeding to trial and ensuring the appointment of indigent counsel, like Asst County Public Defender Scott Roger Hurley, that will not fight for dismissal for poor Black defendants. Her view, apparently, is to falsely imprison Blacks via ineffective assistance of counsel and illegal convictions, and then to take photographs with them for the media if and when when they are later released for false imprisonment or via the early release reentry program she chairs).


Also at issue is foreclosure theft by foreclosure magistrates and common pleas judges like Judge John O'Donnell, and the sheriff's office, impropriety, in fact, with JPMorgan Chase Bank and other big banks and mortgage companies, hundreds and thousands of homes stolen and Blacks and others who complain sometimes maliciously indicted at the hands of former county prosecutor Tim McGinty and current county prosecutor Mike O'Malley.


A former chief deputy under former county prosecutor Bill Mason, O' Malley reneged on a campaign promise he made in 2016 to Black leaders to institute reform measures in the prosecutor's office and to do right by Blacks and others if they helped him defeat McGinty, a fellow Democrat.


A retired common pleas judge who clashed with virtually everyone and who protected White Cleveland cops that erroneously gunned down Blacks like Tamir Rice from prosecution, McGinty was ousted last year as county prosecutor by Black voters and his own county Democratic party, after he accused common pleas judges, mainly Democrats, of corruption and complained to the Ohio Supreme Court about their behavior.
