part IIHow do I find this on the web? I can't seem to get any answers!
Robert Calli, a lawyer in a prominent firm in Utica,
took the case over after some discrepancies. Robert
Calli sought help from the law offices of Julian and
Pertz; another law firm who had experience in medical
malpractice cases. This law firm claimed to seek
expert medical help from a physician in Maine.
However, this law firm instead used one of their own
law partners, Richard Pertz to impersonate the physician
from Maine and proceeded to perform a phony
physical examination on the officer in the back room
of the law office. Pertz stated that there was no medical
malpractice on behalf of the doctor who performed
the botched surgery.
The officer's current lawyer, Randy Scharf and he
went to Maine. They spoke to the real physician who
stated he had never examined the of officer.The real
physician did take a look at the medical records and
found at least ten instances of medical malpractice.
Robert Calli and the law firm of Julian and Pertz
destroyed any hope of medical malpractice case
against the doctor and hospital where the surgery
It is now known that the doctor who performed the
botched surgery was not certified to perform the surgery
that left the officer disabled.-
Robert Calli then "attempted" to sue the City of
Utica for lack of treatment and payment for the officer's
injuries. It.was during this time that Robert Calli
deposed the wife and daughter this officer for a possible
trial with the City of Utica. Over a period of time,
Robert Calli "claimed" to have settled a lawsuit for the
officerwith the City of Utica. Robert Calli claimed that
an account was set up with Wachovia Bank to disperse
funds. Two payments were made to the officer
before he felt that something was not right. Mr. Scharf
discovered that the entire lawsuit against the city was
phony and monies were taken out of Robert Calli's
escrow account to cut checks to the officer.
When the officer's current attorney, Randy Scharf
brought suite against Thomas Soja and Robert Calli,
it took three Supreme Court Judges to fmally find one
who would take the case. The first judge, Judge Siegel
held hearings for over a year before finally reCUSing
himself from the case. It is interesting to note that
after several hearings were held in this judge's chambers,
no written records were ever taken of them. The
next judge recused himself citing a conflict. The third
judge, Michael Daily was an ADAin the county where
these activities took place, "and dUring pre-trial hearings,
the judge took improper action I felt were
One of the lawyers defending Robert Calli and
Thomas Soja is now the President of the New York
State Lawyers Association.
At this time I -am scheduled to go to Appellate
Division- Fourth Department in Rochester, on
October 30, 2009.
I feel that by the time we reach Rochester the politics
will already be in place and my chance for a fair
hearing will have been compromised.
The Utica Bar Association was contacted, but they
hung up on me.
The political climate in our area is so distorted that
not even the newspapers or the TV media will touch
this story. I need help getting this story out so this
type of corruption can not be allowed to happen anywhere
Lawyers, like Police Officers take Oaths to Serve and
Protect the People. These lawyers used their practices
and influence within the legal and political communities
to commit breach of contract, legal malpractice,
