Here are a few current matters we are reporting on and investigating that might be of interest. Take a look at some of these antics disclosed. The documents referred to have been retrieved from court files and from other sources in the public domain.

A New York and Wisconsin Plastic Surgeon

Jim, our founder, a plaintiff in these cases, will not comment to us at this time, on this first matter, due to a supposed “gag” Order, issued by Supreme Court Judge Beeler in December 2005. One can only wonder why there should be a gag order in connection with a litigation of this type were a defendant owes an agreed-to large sum of money to a plaintiff. What does the defendant doctor have to hide? Shouldn’t a doctor pay his obligations? More >>

George & AntoniaPavia

A New York Lawyer

A self-styled elitist, a lawyer and a supposed partner of Italian owned law office Pavia & Harcourt and documented schemer. Did he manipulate the law? Did he compromise a presiding judge? Did he compromise and bribe employees and others with the New York Department of Buildings? Did he cover up his and his wife Antonia and lawyer daughter Allison’s illegal activities? Who did he bribe? Did he scheme to steal rent stablization rights belonging to Jim Couri? More >>

Jay Itkowitz & wife/partner Michelle Maratto

A New York Lawyer

A New York lawyer recruited by the George and Antonia Pavia to engage in self-styled “gamesmanship.” Ikowitz advertises his expert gamesmanship over legal integrity. A political ferret who it appears, did not disclose all as required. Why? Did Ikowitz function as a “liaison” with a state court judge to allow the Pavias a compromised field to steal rent stabilization through tampering? Ikowitz prides himself at emptying homes for unscrupulous landlords. More >>

Joe Burke

A New York Lawyer

Is Burke a manipulator, schemer, liar and a corrupter? Did Burke engage in ex-parte electronic communications with court officers and a Referee and others? Did Burke willfully and systematically manipulate New York Court Referees and cause and or write illegal Orders to be generated in a scheme to obstruct justice? Did Burke cause a cover-up and engage in fraud to insulate his client, a plastic surgeon? More >>

Kenneth V. Gomez, Esq.

A New York Lawyer

A New York lawyer and partner of Joe Burke, who took over the Pavias’ Rent Stabilization scheme when it became too hot for Attorney Ikowitz. Did Gomez conspire with the courts to cheat Jim Couri and to steal his rights and money? How did they convert $6,500 and in two weeks and make off with over $125,000 of Jim's medical malpractice settlement? Through fraud, deception, a forged confession of judgment, and judges in New York Courts willing to ignore Secured Creditor Laws and forgery? More >>

Leona Helmsley

New York Real Estate Magnate Company

Helmsley Enterprises, Helmsley Carlton House and Harold Miriam were all reported by Jim in 1993 for conducting with others an illegal gambling casino in the Helmsley Carlton House on Madison Ave. and 62nd Street in New York City; on the same floor where Jim maintained an apartment. The Criminal Investigation Division of the Internal Revenue Service and other Agencies swarmed in. More >>

Adrian Zuckerman

A New York Real Estate Lawyer

A New York lawyer and a former employee and lawyer for Helmsley, who was caught and confessed to his forgery of Jim’s signature on court filings before Unified Court Justice Richard Lowe, in 1995. What was Zuckerman's role in this Pavia/Gomez theft of Jim's medical settlement? Remember, Zuckerman admitted to his lying in New York Courts. More>>


If the answer is yes to many of these questions presented, the parties reported here and all in concert with them are guilty of obstruction of justice, fraud and possible RICO Act violations. The common thread that winds its way through the activities outlined here point to the compromising of the Unified Court System. The patterns of Decisions and Orders beginning with JSC Madden from 2002 appear to be a systematic manipulation toward deprivation of a level playing field. The cover up and the failure to acknowledge wrongdoings, perpetuated by certain attorneys who have routinely tampered with court officials, agencies and others is despicable, but yet it continues. Acts of judges who will preclude evidence, rewrite statutes and other acts of misconduct to aid one litigant and deprive another appears to be a part of this judicial “process”. Permitting the theft of medical malpractice recoveries through this judicial bias and favoritism and judges ignoring corrupt acts seems commonplace. Condoning perjury, fraud, tax evasion seems to be part of this in New York Courts as well. These acts reported here have been well documented, some reported along with documentary evidence to the Commission on Judicial Conduct in New York. This was another waste of effort up to now.

The question to be asked: Did this “gang” individually and together cheat, lie, compromise, interfere, manipulate and corrupt the judicial process in New York Courts in order to obtain unjust enrichments and convert money (a lot of money). Did the Pavias’ along with their lawyers Jay Itkowitz and Kenneth V. Gomez wrongfully obtain from Jim his rent stabilized rights implementing corrupt acts and obstruction of justice, while navigating the New York Courts?

Where big bucks are in the balance, watch your back and watch your pockets. When you uncover suspect Judicial conduct and report it, the “culprits” will gang up on you, so be careful. Always remember, “in unity there is strength” and that Scamraiders is “a new voice for the voiceless”.
