Constitutional law attorney Leon Koziol has filed a parental civil rights lawsuit alleging willful and harmful violations of the US and New York Constitutions and civil rights laws by New York courts and government agencies involving their mistreatment of parents and children. After reading the very long list of complaints regarding alleged corrupt and illegal actions by judges, government employees, and police officers and a pattern of retaliation against Koziol for exercising his First Amendment free speech rights to criticize government officials and the people they employ for their pattern of abuse and misconduct, it appears the pattern of retaliation for legitimate complaints is remarkably similar to what is done to many other parents who go up against criminals employed by the government.
Koziol has lost his children, his legal career, and much of his income and property apparently due to the systematic abuse alleged to have been executed by several of the defendants as they attempted to terrorize, harass, threaten, and coerce Koziol to stop his complaints against them.
The defendants include a long list of primarily New York state and county government officials but also includes US federal government Secretary DHHS Kathleen Sebelius:
- Jonathan Lippman – Chief Administrative Officer of the New York Unified Court System
- New York Unified Court System
- State of New York
- New York State Supreme Court Judge John Grow
- Family Court Judge Charles Merrell
- Child Support Magistrate George Getman
- Judge Michael Daley
- Justices of the Appellate Court Divisions 3 and 4
- Fifth Judicial District Grievance Committee
- Gregory Huether – Chief Counsel of Fifth Judicial District
- Mary Gasparini – investigator/attorney for Fifth Judicial District
- Kathleen Sebelius – US Secretary of Health and Human Services
- Brian Wing – Commissioner of the Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance
- David Swarts – Commissioner of Motor Vehicles
- Lucille Soldato – Commissioner of Oneida County Department of Social Services
- Darlene Chudyk -“investigator” for Oneida County
- Kelly Hawse-Koziol (Leon Koziol’s ex-wife)
- Keith Eisenhut
- William Koslosky – “child’s attorney”
- Judge Martha Walsh-Hood
- C. Duncan Kerr – Deputy Tax Commissioner
- Donna Costello, Charlotte Kiehle, and other as yet unknown tax agents of New York state

A press release style cover letter explains the filing:
In what may be described as the most sweeping challenge to date upon our nation’s draconian child control laws surrounding Title IV-D of the Social Security Act, New York Civil Rights Advocate Leon R. Koziol, J.D. has filed a comprehensive test case in United States District Court in Albany, New York. Named in the action are judicial and law enforcement officials, including New York’s Chief Justice and Unified Court System. The lawsuit, served upon select parties this week, takes aim at “custody” and “child support” laws which alienate children from their parents as part of a government money generating scheme. A 39 page, 24 count civil complaint sets forth the manner in which lawyers and forensic agents feed off of manufactured controversies in domestic relations courts to harm parent-child relations and the financial stability of mainstream households. According to Koziol, it is a process which is harming the productivity of an entire nation.
Until his public stance against the legal profession in recent years, Mr. Koziol enjoyed an unblemished 23 year career as a constitutional rights attorney. His accomplishments include six figure jury verdicts on behalf of race, gender and free speech victims. In 2004, he secured a final judgment in New York Supreme Court declaring unconstitutional the operation of the largest casino in that state. He has appeared on the CBS Program “60 Minutes”, New York Times and CNN, among other national mediums. The current action provides a startling look at the manner in which government actors are suppressing free speech, due process and the People’s liberty interests in childrearing. Mr. Koziol is seeking similar victims of courtroom abuses to join this action and transform it to class action status. Support is needed behind his sacrificial cause on behalf of “parents similarly situated”. As the holiday season approaches, Mr. Koziol hopes to target family preservation issues and the scheduling of a national parenting rights convention.

Below is part one of a three part video featuring Leon Koziol speaking about the “separate but unequal” family law policy practiced across the United States in violation of the US Constitution. This video and others like it are apparently part of the reason for the government’s retaliation against Koziol. He criticizes their conduct that causes immense harm to children and parents and they aim to destroy him for publicly expressing his legitimate and accurate opinions that expose their terroristic and abusive actions.
Government in the US often operates under the premise that if somebody exposes a wrong, discredit and destroy that person rather than fixing the wrong. This is one important reason why American government has no moral authority today.

This lawsuit stems from how Koziol himself has been targeted by New York government agencies illegally engaging in retaliatory conduct and subsequently abusing child support laws in violation of agreements between him and his ex-wife to further harm Koziol and his children. He also believes that they retaliating due to his work with some of their other victims to challenge the unconstitutional family law courts and child support system and other illegal police actions against parents in the area.
The police, tax agencies, and other government employees have involved themselves in this conflict to harm Koziol, including harassing him at his residence, theft and vandalism by seizing his cars in violation of a warrant and damaging one of those cars, and filing reports naming him as a domestic violence perpetrator because he had a professional process server serve legal papers on his ex-wife. Koziol has previously filed a lawsuit against their employers in New York’s Oneida County and Town of New Hartford  regarding some of these alleged violations of the law by government employees seeking to harm him.
While I don’t personally know Leon Koziol, what his lawsuit alleges is standard practice for family courts and county and local government agencies across the United States. Criticize them and they will retaliate by harassing you with false accusations, arrests, and seizures of property and records. They move on to revoking your licenses, including professional licenses and your driving license. They damage you emotionally and psychologically to the core by this pattern of continuing harassment, and deprive you of the ability to make an income. Then when you cannot earn anything due to their terrorism, they will label you a “deadbeat” and put you in jail for being unable to pay child support for the children they wrongly prevent you from seeing.
This government terrorism happens to many thousands, perhaps even millions, of parents and children every year in the United States. In light of this, it is entirely accurate to view the United States as one of the foremost violators of human and civil rights in the world. Until American government stops violating the law and people’s basic rights, it has absolutely no more legitimacy or moral authority than Saddam Hussein, Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, and countless other despotic criminals who have inflicted immense harm upon many tens of millions of people around the world. In some ways, those tyrants are morally superior to many of the government officials active today in the United States. For one, they did far less to hide their truly evil nature than the many American judges, CPS social workers, police officers, and politicians we have claiming to “protect families” while they destroy them for profit and job security for their friends and themselves.
