OPINION AND EDITORIAL
New documents filed in the civil litigation (apparently held en camera and under seal by the court) against the purported founder of CrowdSource The Truth — Jason Goodman — allege his involvement in an obstruction of justice scheme that may have violated 18 U.S.C. § 1503.
Many observers believe that a criminal Section 1503 charge for conduct in a civil lawsuit hearkens back to another infamous Southern District of New York (SDNY) lawsuit:
The new allegations of corruptly influencing federal judges dates back to the fall of 2018 when Jason Goodman created and distributed podcasts on the 13 social media CrowdSource The Truth outlets called the “COUNTER LAWFARE REPORT“.
This podcast series featured Goodman side-kick Brian Vukadinovich, a pro se litigant with a mysterious connection to a retired judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit — Hon. Richard A. Posner.
The “COUNTER LAWFARE REPORT” usually featured Vukadinovich re-hashing purported corruption of federal judges, in particular the Hon. Philip P. Simon of the Northern District of Indiana.
Questions are orbiting the Jason Goodman libel, slander and defamation case about the techniques, tools and practices (TTPs) used by Vukadinovich to win his federal lawsuits in Indiana.
Questions remain if some of these unorthodox TTPs could be viewed in the light of Section 1503 as “corruptly influencing” the administration of justice.
Vukadinovich also self-published a book of his experiences with Judge Simon.
