We are Anonymous. We’ve come to deliver an important message regarding the trial of accused Anonymous Hacktivist Jeremy Hammond. We believe a great injustice is occurring in Jeremy’s trial and that the public and media deserves to be aware of it. Jeremy is entitled to a fair and public hearing by a competent, independent and impartial tribunal established by law. Under the current circumstances, that cannot be possible.
Now we will explain: Jeremy Hammond is a political activist that is being charged with involvement in the December 2011 hack of Stratfor. He is accused of releasing the Stratfor information to WikiLeaks.
The judge presiding over Jeremy’s case is named Loretta Preska. During Jeremy’s bail hearing Judge Preska portrayed Jeremy as a terrorist more dangerous than murderers and sexual predators, denied his bail and, before Jeremy and a gathering of his friends and family, announced the sentence he would face if found guilty: 360 months to life.
What Judge Preska did not disclose at this hearing was that she is bound by law to recuse herself of this case due to a direct conflict of interest.
On September 11, 1983 Loretta Preska married one Thomas J. Kavaler, currently a partner at the lawfirm Cahill Gordon & Reindel LLP. If you examine the Stratfor database, which was published by Wikileaks, you will find on Starfor’s clientele list the e-mail address:
[email protected] This address can also be found on Cahill.com, the website of Cahill Gordon & Reindel LLP, on a bio of Thomas Kavaler Judge Preska’s husband. Judge Preska by proxy is a victim of the very crime she intends to judge Jeremy Hammond for. Judge Preska has failed to disclose the fact that her husband is a client of Stratfor and recuse herself from Jeremy’s case, therefore violating multiple Sections of Title 28 of the United States Code.
Judge Loretta Preska is impartiality is compromised by her Husband’s involvement with Stratfor and a clear prejudice against Hammond exists, as evident by her statements. In the interest of justice, the public and media should demand Judge Preska remove herself from Hammond’s case or if she will not, demand a superior court provide a writ of prohibition forcing her to step down. Without justice being freely, fully, and impartially administered, neither our persons, nor our rights, nor our property, can be protected.
