Judge: Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Committed “Fraud Against the Court”

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Francis Allegra (courtesy wikipedia.org)

Former ATF agent and whistleblower Jay Dobyns filed objections Thursday to a report from a special master appointed to review allegations of government misconduct arising from his case against the Bureau. As reported in this column, Dobyns had sued his former employer for failure to properly investigate an arson attack that destroyed his home and endangered his family, and for reneging on protection agreements over death threats he received after ATF withdrew his cover identity following his undercover investigation of the Hells Angels. Senior Judge Francis M. Allegra [above] of the United States Court of Federal Claims had characterized the behavior of Department of Justice and ATF attorneys as . . .

“fraud upon the court,” after allegations that they had engaged in witness intimidation and withholding information from the court emerged. Judge John M. Facciola was appointed as special master, with specific instructions which Dobyns insists were ignored.

Among other arguments raised in Dobyns’ objection is Facciola used the wrong standard of review, he refused to consider misconduct allegations and his report contains legal and factual errors. As such, the court is being asked to “entirely reject the Special Master Report for any of the several independent and sufficient reasons set forth herein.”

“If you publicly call out our government they will use infinite financial and manpower resources with unlimited time in the courts to break your spirit and your bank,” Dobyns explained to this column. “They don’t win against us on truth or justice. They win because they get challengers to give up or go bankrupt.”

Supporting exhibits were also filed with the objections, including depositions from Dobyns and his attorney James Reed, as well as relevant email correspondence and court filings that have recently been ordered unsealed.

        That’s what happens when they get in over their heads and have to farm out their work to the Feral Bureau of Incineration.

    The ATF committed fraud against the court? Welcome to the club, judge. The ATF has been perpetrating a fraud against America for 40 years. I hope you enjoy being sodomized, ’cause that’s what the ATF does.

    Wishful thinking but I hope this brings an end to the ATF.

      Doubtful, as this is minutia in the grand scheme of things. Pun intended.

    Is this the guy from Above the Law with Charlie Sheen? That movie was awesome.

    1. avatar B says:

      Crap, googled it. Its Beyond the Law. Still awesome.

      1. avatar Ralph says:

        Yeah, Above the Law was Seagal. Best quote: “You guys think you’re above the law. Well, you ain’t above mine.”

      Wasn’t that movie called “Winning”?

    3. avatar FedUp says:

      That was a cop, not a FLEA.
      Name is Daniel Horrigan.

        Darn it, I confused the movie plot with real life. Sheen played a undercover cop. The real life story behind the movie was of Daniel Horrigan, a drug user turned Confidential Informant, and mostly an informant for the feds.

    Truth that applies in so many ways to so many problems with our government.

      “Truth that applies in so many ways to so many problems with our government.”

      Isn’t that a disgusting reality that Americans have allowed, because some are too content in their greed. No wonder the world hates WE comfortable cowards, and why many Americans have become disillusioned with the continuation of corruption.

    Ditto to the judge – and to his apparel choices! Wow!

      Father Guido Sarducci found another career after SNL, and is apparently eating well.

    I’m confused. Was there a published ruling? What is the name of the case? It sounds to me like a employment case involving the BATFE. Can someone provide more information on the case itself?

    1. avatar B says:

      I’m pretty sure he was the informant on fast and furious in the shady as crap New Mexico branch. He got fired and his protection removed after his whistle blowing.

    O.K. I know it’s late ( as writing this) I’m puzzled, and/ or missing something.

    headline;
    Judge: Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Committed “Fraud Against the Court”

    so………. if the Judge stated the BATFE committed
    [“fraud upon the court,” after allegations that they had engaged in witness intimidation and withholding information from the court emerged. Judge John M. Facciola was appointed as special master,
    with specific instructions which Dobyns insists were ignored.]

    Question;
    So was the Judge given special instructions to follow? or was the BATFE given special instructions to follow and provide “?” to the court, which was not done?

  9. avatar andy says:

    I was originally thinking (reading the headline) this might be about ARES Armor
    Records seizure by the BATFE .

      Does your name, by any chance, mean “garland of flowers” in thai?

  12. avatar askeptic says:

    You actually expect the ATF to follow the rules and procedures that bind the rest of us?
    Where did they find this fool for a judge?
