NJCDLP emerged in late 2004 with these opening words:

    National Judicial Conduct and Disability Law Project, Inc. was developed and
    is being operated by people who understand that at this time in America,
    successfully litigating for the public good can require more than clever legal
    arguments and compelling facts. NJCDLP founders assembled and laid the
    foundation for recruiting some of the most formidable legal scholars, civil
    litigators, investigators, public relations and marketing experts, journalists,
    fund raisers and special events coordinators to oversee a virtual ADVOCACY
    MACHINE for representative victims of legal abuse. The objective is legal
    reform through litigation, galvanized by every imaginable form of advocacy
    that can lawfully and effectively help preserve the "rule of law" in the United
    States on a case by case by case basis.

    At NJCDLP, we do not chase crowds and big budgets. We construct them
    from available resources. Our strength is the collective strength of
    conscientious people. We do not borrow our creed from the familiar phrase,
    “from each according to his ability to each according to his need”.

    Come to NJCDLP, expecting to “get by with a little help from (your) friends".
    Yet the goal of that help is real, measurable relief.  NJCDLP is geared to
    strike a balance as best it can between the lofty pursuit of positive,
    government reform and the provision of immediate relief to victims of past
    and present malefactors. The divide is much smaller than many people think.

NJCDLP is still "geared to strike a balance as best it can between the lofty pursuit of
positive, government reform and the provision of immediate relief to victims of past
and present malefactors."  And "(t)he divide is much smaller than many people think."

For now it is simply imprudent to think NJCDLP can meet its original goals through
litigation, but its founders' concerns if not their strategies and corresponding
priorities remain the same.  When NJCDLP began, it explained:

    Nearly three decades ago,** Congress enacted what is now Title 28 U.S.C.
    §351 et seq., (the Judicial Improvements Act, formerly the) Judicial Conduct
    and Disability Act, by which anyone can file a complaint against a federal
    judge, charging him or her with misconduct or a disability impeding the
    judge's job performance. The statute is one component of a larger self-
    policing scheme for local, state and federal judges that apparent consensus
    deems ineffective. National Judicial Conduct and Disability Law Project, Inc.
    (NJCDLP) was accordingly created to help regulate America's judiciary by
    duly increasing its exposure to professional discipline, civil damages
    awards, and/or criminal prosecution for the knowing participation of judges in
    abuse of the American legal system.

    Legal abuse occurs when any officer of an American court or quasi-judicial
    agency abandons the "rule of law"; knowingly transgresses the U.S.
    Constitution; ignores the civil rights of any American; usurps power from an
    executive or legislative branch of government; and/or commits a crime in his
    or her official capacity. Legal abuse manifests itself in a variety of ways.
    However, NJCDLP focuses on a potential obstacle to its exposure – perhaps
    the most grave form of the corruption – judicial collusion. Judicial collusion
    results from an illicit conspiracy or conspiracies involving a judge or judges
    in their official capacity. It may display itself through cronyism, political
    connections, and/or blatant bias. While confirmed judicial collusion is often
    traced to bribery, NJCDLP primarily tracks it to and through relatively subtle
    but compelling evidence that is a matter of public record.

    **Now, a little more than three (3) decades have passed.

NJCDLP generally challenges judicial collusion through its projects NFOJA,
POPULAR, and/or OAK -- links to which appear to the top right of this page.  However
it occasionally addresses such matters directly for
Friends of Justice.
