Profiles in Putrid Waste: Federal Pig Judge William Joseph Martinez
Puto Martinez Seeks Free Labor For One Year:
On November 21, 2012, Salon published a piece from Paul Campos, which was entitled “A judge searches for free labor.” Check out the following portion:
“William Martinez, a federal judge in Denver, is currently using the site to solicit applications for a standard year-long clerkship in his chambers.
While the requirements for the job look quite ordinary – excellent academic credentials required, two or more years of legal practice experience preferred – the position’s salary is not. More precisely, this job features a salary of zero: “This position is a gratuitous service appointment,” the posting announces, while going on to make clear that the successful candidate will waive any claim to salary, benefits or any other compensation, and that he or she can be fired at any time, for any reason, or no reason, during the course of the year-long appointment.
It gets better: Although Judge Martinez isn’t going to pay the successful applicant, and reserves the right to fire this person arbitrarily at any time, the judge is asking whoever takes the job “to morally commit to the position for one year.” (In other words, don’t think for a moment it’s OK to quit this non-paying job just because a paying job comes along.) As an added extra bonus, the posting states unequivocally that “there is no possibility of the position turning into a paid position with Judge Martinez.” [Emphasis mine]
Yes, after spending 20 years in formal “education” facilities, you then have the opportunity to work for a federal pig, but without any compensation! Isn’t that wonderful?!?! Of course, you also need to excel academically during law school - before you can be considered for this “prestigious“ position.
Campos delivers one more right cross to this porker’s snout, in his conclusion:
“Beyond the legalities, there’s the moral question of whether this is acceptable behavior. For high government officials to prey on the desperation of the lost generation in this way is a sorry sight – especially when one considers the structural effects of this kind of thing. Obviously, creating a class of prestigious door-opening jobs that don’t feature actual salaries is just another way of ensuring that only the children of the rich have access to such jobs.
Which brings me to the mordant punch line: Before becoming a federal judge, William Martinez was a lawyer for the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.”
The Bastard’s Background:
Back on December 21, 2010, the Denver Business Journal’s Mark Harden posted a story labeled “Martinez confirmed as Colorado federal judge.” Towards the end of the article, we gain a little insight into Pig Martinez:
“Born in Mexico, Martinez emigrated with his parents as a small child. He holds undergraduate degrees in environmental engineering and political science from the University of Illinois and a law degree from the University of Chicago.”
Presumably, this rat comes from a well-off, connected Mexican family. How many poor immigrants attend top U.S. colleges and law schools?!
The following biographical summary was supplied by the Federal Judicial Center:
“Given name at birth: Jose Guillermo Martinez Escalante”
Apparently, this ass-clown decided that it would be best to Anglicize his Hispanic birth name at age 20. I guess he figured that the owners would rather hire a transparent sell-out.
The Pueblo Chieftain published Robert Boczkiewicz’s piece “One of Colorado's vacant federal judge posts filled,” back on February 26, 2010. Read the following brief passage:
“Martinez, 55, immigrated with his family as a young boy to this country and is the first member of his family to go to college.
He specializes in employment and civil rights law at a Denver law firm where he is a partner.” [Emphasis mine]
Now, that is comedy gold! This supposed employment and civil rights attorney now demands free, committed labor for one full year - as a federal judge/bag-man. What a beacon of integrity, huh?!?!
Conclusion: William Joseph Martinez is a filthy swine. This sewer rat expects highly-educated, accomplished attorneys and JDs to bust their ass for him, for free! The bastard is exploiting desperate law grads. I recognize that judges provide the appearance of “fairness” and a “separate branch” of government. In the end, the political class serves the owners’ interests. However, even this development comes across as an atrocious bowel movement. Then again, the devils are starting to blatantly reveal their intentions. Do any of you lemmings still have your heart set on going to law school?!?!
