2017CV001644 - Unethical Judicial conduct concerning unposted hearings

Judge Gasiorkiewicz,
Attached you will find your addressed  letter and relating documents in support of this letter. 
We have met in many venues, including Wis. Attorney General Brad Schimel's opioid epidemic meeting in Mt. Pleasant this last summer where you asked intelligent questions. 
Sad to say in this case you have reached a low point for the advocates of the first amendment and public record seekers.
Adjournment of all hearings that the public has a right to attend  in this case would be in order until your court can tame and control the WCCA monster you have created.   Thousands of citizens every day utilize WCCA records for court information and the business of the court.  Business of the court includes WCCA postings of future hearings.   How is your court  going to be compliant with state laws and the rights of citizens to have access and knowledge of court business if there is no notifications thru WCCA?
I have taken steps to secure the transcripts of yesterday's hearing.  I believe your written court records concerning public vs. sealed hearings does not match your spoken words during the September 25th.hearing.  
Double talk, politics and complitic behavior have no business in any courtroom.

Re: 2017CV001644 (SEALED CASE)

Judge Gasiorkiewicz,

As an advocate for open records and free speech
(1st. amendment), I try to be a vigilant watchdog of selected court cases and proceedings.

After recently sitting in your courtroom hearing on Sept. 25th, it came to my attention through your doubletalk you had violated a most basic court procedure - failing to publicly post notice of the Sept. 25thcontempt hearing. Further, the future contempt hearing scheduled for Oct. 3rd is not posted for public notice as well. To knowingly conduct such public hearings without proper public notice is a serious breach of judicial conduct. (Please see attached WCCA captions and day of court hearing posting). The present WCCA format does not provide proper notice of such hearings. It is your judicial duty to assure that proper notice of any public hearing involving your court is timely and properly posted for public view according to state law.

Since you do not exercise proper procedures that are used in a daily basis to conduct court, it begs one to question your judgment and conduct during sealed hearings.
I strongly suggest you adjourn the Oct. 3rd hearing until you can provide proper public notice of such hearing.

In the very short time of monitoring this case, I have noted many errors, omissions and acts of judicial misconduct. As a Judge, you now have serious credibility gaps being your words do not coincide with printed court documents. I do not believe I need to school you on Wisconsin Statutes 757.14 and other equally important statutes that protect public access to the courts. Nor should I have to remind you of Wis. SCR’s and Statutes that regulate judicial conduct. Since you are an (honorable?) Judge, please conduct all future hearings in full compliance of Wisconsin laws.

You have been put on notice.

Respectfully submitted,
Legal Stranger
