Former Fayette County (Georgia) Superior Court Judge Christopher Edwards is absolutely corrupt and unethical based on his handling of my lawsuit against the State Bar of Georgia & Georgia Supreme Court in my case of Sam Louis Levine v. William J. Cobb, Fulton Superior, CAFN: 2019-CV-328306.

During my case, Judge Edwards:

·        Failed to perform duties impartially and diligently

·        Failed to dispose promptly the business of the court

·        Presided over it with a conflict of Interest

·        Engaged in conduct severely prejudicial to the administration, which reflected adversely on the integrity of the court (i.e. fraud on the court, complicity with fraud on the court, retaliation, etc.).

I.       Judicial Canon and Rule Violations Committed by Chief Judge Christopher Edwards of Fayette County Superior Court As Fulton County Designate Court Judge By Way of Illegal Transfer, Judicial Assistance Request and Unilateral and Unauthorized Assignment by Chief Judge Geronda Carter of the Clayton Circuit in the Sixth (6th) Judicial Administrative District and His Disqualification from Presiding Because of Conflict of Interest Due to Being a Member of the State Bar Board of Governors and Substitute Justice of the Georgia Supreme Court

          On October 21, 2019, I filed a lawsuit in the above-styled matter.  Sam Louis Levine v. William J. Cobb, et al, Fulton County Superior Court, CAFN: 2019-CV-328306.  (see online case docket).

           Prior to the filing of this lawsuit, I filed two (2) motions with sworn affidavits to recuse the judges of the Fulton County Superior Court in my dispossessory case, the first on or about December 19, 2018 and the second one on February 19, 2019

          Neither of my two (2) motions to recuse in Georgia Alloy, et al v. Sam Levine, Dekalb Superior, CAFN:  2018-CV-1430, were ruled on within ninety (90) days as required under O.C.G.A. 15-6-21(b).  (see online case docket).   

          The failure of Fulton Superior Judge Thomas Cox and/or Fulton Designate Judge Arch McGarity to rule on my motions within ninety (90) days, constitutes grounds for impeachment under O.C.G.A. 15-6-21(d) (and disqualification).  

           In addition, the failure of the disqualified Fulton Superior Designate Court Judges to  select a replacement within the current as term as I filed both of my motions to recuse and within a reasonable time constitutes a violation of O.C.G.A. 15-6-13(a) and is further grounds for impeachment under O.C.G.A. 15-6-13(b). 

          Because Chief Judge Robert McBurney and Designate Court Judge Thomas Cox failed to timely select a replacement judge as mandatorily required under O.C.F.A. 15-6-13, it became the duty of the clerk of court under O.C.G.A. 15-6-14(b) to select a competent attorney to preside over the case.

          By Chief Judge Robert McBurney’s filing of his recusal, transfer and judicial assistance request order(s) to Clayton Superior in the instant case on December 5, 2019, following the failure of Designate Court Judges Cox and/or McGarity to rule on my previous two (2) motions to recuse/disqualify filed on December 18, 2018 and February 19, 2019, Judges Cox/McGarity/McBurney violated the Uniform Superior Court Rules 25.3 and 25.4 applicable to the duty and procedure to be used by the trial judge upon a motion to recuse/disqualify. (see  Applicable Uniform Superior Court Rules).

           By Chief Judge Robert McBurney’s filing of this same order on December 5, 2019 requesting judicial assistance without including the reasons for the request and the time period covered, he violated O.C.G.A. 15-1-9.1(2)(f). 

           By Chief Judge Robert McBurney’s filing of this same order on December 5, 2019 requesting judicial assistance where he specified the name of the Judge for the case to be assigned to (Judge Arch McGarity), he violated Uniform Superior Court Rule 25.5 (my motions to recuse/disqualify included Judge McBurney) and O.C.G.A. 15-1-9.1(2)(e).

           In addition to Judge McBurney usurping the power and authority of the Fulton Superior Court clerk under O.C.G.A. 15-6-14(b) to select a competent attorney to preside over this case under O.C.G.A. 15-6-14(b), he did the same in my dispossessory, defamation and interpleader cases. 

           In response to Chief Judge Robert McBurney’s filing of his December 5, 2019 recusal, transfer and request for judicial assistance order, Chief Clayton Superior Court judge, Geronda Carter filed an order with the court on January 23, 2020 improperly assigning the case to a judge outside the Clayton Circuit, Chief Judge Christopher Edwards, the Chief Judge of Fayette County located in the Griffin Circuit of the Sixth Judicial Administrative District, which violated O.C.G.A. 15-1-9.1(2)(e), because it is the responsibility and duty of the transferee chief administrative court judge, Judge Geronda Carter to assign the case to another judge within the Clayton  circuit (i.e. Judge Robert Mack – as Judge Carter did in Sam Levine v. Mark Anthony Scott, et al, Dekalb Superior Court, CAFN: 2019-CV-9808 or Judges Shana Rooks-Malone, Aaron Mason or Judge Kathryn Powers).   

          Chief Judge Geronda Carter was not authorized under O.C.G.A. 15-1-9.1(2)(f) to assign the case to another Administrative/Chief Judge in a different circuit – Chief Judge Christopher Edwards of the Griffin Judicial Circuit and her doing so violated O.C.G.A. 15-1-9.1(2)(e) and U.S.C.R. 25.4.

           Chief Judge Geronda Carter also should not have assigned the case to a Judge, Christopher Edwards who was disqualified because of a conflict of interest because of being a member of the State Bar Board of Governors and a substitute justice for the Georgia Supreme Court, both Defendants in this case.  Judge Edwards’ reluctance to report the judicial misconduct of another judge in his court several years ago as I documented in one of my recent case filings also in my opinion, called in serious question his ability to be fair and impartial.  Because of Judge Edwards’ involvement as a member of the State Bar Board of Governors and a substitute justice for the Georgia Supreme Court, he should not have presided over the case where it was a forgone conclusion that he would not be able to be fair, impartial and neutral, which is exactly how is involvement as presiding judge in this case transpired.

           Ultimately Chief Judge Christopher Edwards presided over my case despite actual knowledge of and in violation of the procedural rules and failed to comply with the law and in doing so, he overstepped his power, jurisdiction and authority and failed to comply with the law, including with the Uniform Superior Court Rules and applicable rules governing recusal and disqualification. 

           Judge Edwards further took it upon himself to preside over the case without jurisdiction, power or authority, without proper assignment and without being fully clothed.

           As a result of the above, Chief Judge Christopher Edwards intentionally and knowingly failed to comply with the law as follows:

           1)      Violation of Judicial Recusal/Disqualification Rules;

           2)      Violation of Uniform Superior Court Rules;

           3)      Violation of O.C.G.A. 15-1.9.1 (requirements to be fully clothed to preside over a case);

           4)       Violation of O.C.G.A. 15-6-21(b);

           5)      Violation of O.C.G.A. 15-6-13;

           6)      Usurpation of the Power of the clerk of court to appoint an attorney to preside over the case under O.C.G.A. 15-6-14.

                   In doing the above, Chief Judge Christopher Edwards also:

           1)      Failed to Comply with the Law (Rule 1.1); and

          2)      Failed to Promote Public Confidence in the Judiciary (Rule 1.2)

           Based on the above, Chief Judge Christopher Edwards violated the following judicial canons/rules as follows:

           1)      Rule 1.2(A): (Judges shall act at all times in a manner that promotes  public confidence in the independence, integrity and impartiality of the judiciary);

           2)      Rule 1.2(B): (An independent and honorable judiciary is indispensable to justice in our society.  Judges shall participate in establishing, maintaining and enforcing high standards of conduct and shall personally observe such standards of conduct so that the independence, integrity and impartiality of the judiciary may be preserved.  The provisions of this Code should be construed and applied to further that objective);

           3)      Rule 2.1: (The judicial duties of judges take precedence over all their other activities.  A judge’s judicial duties include all duties prescribed by law.  But primarily, judges serve as the arbiters of facts and law for the resolution of disputes);

          4)      Rule 2.2: (Judges shall dispose of all matters fairly, promptly and efficiently);

          5)      Rule 2.3: (Judges shall perform their judicial duties without bias, prejudice or harassment);

          6)      Rule 2.4(B): (External Influences on Judicial Conduct; Judges shall not permit family, social, political, financial or other interests or relationships to influence the judge’s Judicial conduct or judgment);

          7)      Rule 2.5: (Performing Administrative Responsibilities; Judges shall perform judicial and administrative duties competently, diligently and without bias or prejudice);

          8)      Rule 2.6(a)(b): (Ensuring the Right to be Heard and Prompt Disposition of matters);

          9)      Rule 2.7: (Judges shall hear and decide matters assigned to them, except those in which they are disqualified); 

          10)    Rule 2.11: (Disqualification and recusal; Judges shall disqualify themselves in any proceeding in which their impartiality might reasonably be questioned – Judge Mack completely ignored my motion to recuse which he had an obligation to immediately act on under U.S.C.R. 25.4);

          11)    Rule 2.12(B): (Judges with supervisory authority for judicial performance of other judges should take reasonable measures to assure the prompt disposition of matters before these judges, along with the proper performance of their other judicial responsibilities);

          12)    Rule 2.15: (Judges who receive information indicating a substantial likelihood that another judge has committed a violation of this Code should take appropriate action.  Judges having knowledge that another judge has committed a violation of this Code that raises a substantial question regarding the         judge’s honesty, trustworthiness or fitness for office shall inform the appropriate authority; Failure to Respond to Judicial and Lawyer Misconduct by Bar Counsel, the Justices and their staff for drafting and filing fraudulent documents with the court);                                  

          13)    Canon 1: (Judges shall uphold the independence, integrity and Impartiality of the judiciary and shall avoid impropriety in all of their activities); 

          14)    Canon 2: (Judges shall perform the duties of judicial office impartially, competently and diligently);

          By Chief Judge Christopher Edwards presiding over this case while without being fully clothed under O.C.G.A. 15-1-9.1 because of deficiencies in the recusal, transfer and judicial assistance request order and while disqualified with a conflict of interest because of being a member of the State Bar of Georgia Board of Governors and a substitute justice for the Georgia Supreme Court, both Defendants in this case, there was no chance whatsoever that Judge Edwards was going to or could rule on and adjudicate this case in a fair, neutral and impartial manner, which is exactly how it turned out.  According to Judicial Canon 3.(E)(1), a judge shall disqualify themselves in any proceeding in which their impartiality might reasonably be questioned.  Judge Edwards being member of the State Bar of Georgia Board of Governors and a substitute justice for the Georgia Supreme Court is an example where is duty and allegiance was to the Bar and Georgia Supreme Court and not to justice.

          The above unquestionably created the appearance of impropriety and constituted malpractice, malfeasance, oppression, tyrannical partiality towards me under the color of his judicial office in violation of O.C.G.A. 45-11-4(b)(1)(2), thereby also violating the judicial code of conduct.

          The following judicial discipline cases apply here:

·        In re: Inquiry Concerning Judge Eric W. Norris, Ga. JQC, Complaint No. 2019-277 (2020);

·        In re: Inquiry Concerning Judge Terrinee Lynette Gundy, Ga. JQC, Complaint No. 17-246 (2019);

·        In re: Inquiry Concerning Judge Eddie Anderson, Ga. Supr. Ct., Case No. S18Z1333 (2019);

·        In re: Inquiry Concerning Judge Tammy Stokes, Ga. Supr. Ct., Case No. S19Z0269 (2018); 

·        In re: Inquiry Concerning Judge Robert Crawford, Ga. JQC, Complaint Nos. 221-17C, 362-17-C; 2018-115 (2018);

·        In re: Inquiry Concerning Judge Anthony Peters, Ga. Supr. Ct., Case No. S11Z1336 (2011); 

·        In re: Inquiry Concerning Judge Barbara J. Mobley, Ga. JQC, Docket Number: 2010-25 (2011);

·        Jones County, et al v. A Mining Group, LLC, et al, Ga. Supr. Ct., Case No. S09A0846 (2009);

·        In the Matter of Inquiry Concerning Judge Dorothy Vaughn, JQC Nos. 94-8, 94-64, 94-74, 95-44, 95-56, Ga. Supr. Ct., 462 S.E.2d 728,  (1995);

·        In the Matter of Inquiry Concerning Judge R Joseph Hammill, JQC Nos. 01-44, 01-73, 01-89, 01-90, Ga. Supr. Ct., 462 S.E.2d 728, No. S02Z0893 (2002);

          As shown above, Chief Judge Christopher Edwards committed multiple acts prejudicial to the administration of justice against me and demonstrated bias, lack of neutrality and lack of impartiality resulting in the violation of the above-referenced judicial rules and canons.

         Judge Edwards is extremely unethical, should never serve in a position of public trust and should be brought up on and charged with felony crimes against public administration, violaiton of oath of office and other crimes.
