Controversial Florida State Attorney, Angela Corey, Loses Counterclaim Suit Against Zimmerman Witness Ben Kruidbos…

The story of Ben Kruidbos (pronounced “Cried-Boss”) is a story of what happens when a man of integrity stands up against a legal authority built on corruption and political self-interest.

Yesterday a Florida Judge delivered a ruling, with extreme prejudice, against his former boss, State Attorney Angela Corey – thereby allowing a lawsuit filed by Ben to continue.

Those of you who followed the trial of George Zimmerman may remember Ben; those of you who are not familiar with the specifics might find a parallel to the current headlines of what is happening in Baltimore Maryland in the office of State Attorney Marilyn Mosby.

Ben Kruidbos was the Information Technology Director, the technology expert, within the office of the Jacksonville State Attorney Angela Corey ~Full Backstory~.  In his position he was charged with retrieving and reviewing the phone data contained in the cell phone of Trayvon Martin.

The office of Angela Corey held a vested interest in the content of Trayvon’s cell phone because, as we would later discover, the content therein showed how Trayvon’s mother, Sybrina Fulton, and his father, Tracy Martin, lied to state investigators about the details surrounding Trayvon’s activities prior to his encounter with George Zimmerman.

Conversely, George Zimmerman’s defense team also held a vested interest in the cell phone content because much of the public discussion therein was fraught with intentional deception on behalf of the Martin Family attorneys Daryl Parks and Benjamin Crump.

trayvon cell phone 1During the trials discovery phase, the FBI and various technological experts extracted data from the phone.  In addition the State Attorney’s office also extracted data – some very alarming data, some very controversial data, and much of that data the State did not want to hand over to the defense team.

Consequently, Angela Corey, and state prosecutor Bernie De La Rionda, tried to hide much of the phone data from the Zimmerman defense team.

Enter Ben Kruidbos, who was charged with extracting and analyzing the data and documenting the content therein.   Ben noted he was, and had, extracted far more data than was turned over to the defense during discovery.  Angela Corey was intentionally trying to hide explosive information from the Zimmerman defense team.

Ben was stuck in an ethical conundrum.  He knew data was being hidden by his boss, and yet simultaneously he would be putting his job in jeopardy if he questioned them about it. Ben tried unsuccessfully to discuss the issue with lead prosecutor Bernie De La Rionda, who wanted nothing to do with it because De La Rionda knew the inherent risks within the conversation.

Ben made the decision to reach out to another person for advice and counsel; a former prosecutor in the office named Wes White.

During the pre-trial ‘discovery phase’, Wes White was called to the witness stand by the defense and asked about the total of the phone content. Eventually this led to Ben Kruidbos also taking the stand, and the Corey ruse to manipulate evidence was exposed.

None of the details ever came out in trial, or in front of the jury.  Judge Debra Nelson told both the State and Defense teams she was going to address the unethical conduct and possibility for sanctions after the trial.  However, on the day the jury handed the not guilty verdict in the Zimmerman trial, Ben Kruidbos was fired by Angela Corey.

Several months later Ben filed a wrongful termination lawsuit, seeking whistleblower protection, against State Attorney Angela Corey.

In response Corey filed a counterclaim against Ben Kruidbos, essentially trying to put him into the legal grinder and wear him down.

Yesterday a Florida judge ruled that Corey’s 2-count counterclaim was dismissed with prejudice (a written order will probably take a month to be issued and filed).

Once the judges Order dismissing the counterclaim is entered, Ben Kruidbos’s suit will be “at issue”, which means the pleadings are closed and there will then be a trial order issued setting various dates for completion of discovery, motions for summary judgment, etc., and then a trial date.   That actual trial is probably not likely to occur until the end of the year.

However, to show how convoluted, corrupt, and dangerous a rogue State Attorney can be, we would like to direct your attention to paragraphs 10 & 11 of the allegations of facts found within her failed counterclaim:

[…] 11.  Even if the information Plaintiff disclosed to the defense during the Trayvon Martin case did not rise to the level of confidential work product, it was still information belonging to and considered confidential by State Attorney, and Plaintiff should not have disclosed it or authorized it to be disclosed to a third party, especially to the defense attorneys in an active prosecution being conducted by State Attorney.

Think about this paragraph.

State Attorney Corey’s position is not only convoluted, but it demonstrates a fundamental misunderstanding of our Constitution.  The DEFENDANT’S (Zimmerman’s) rights, like the right to a fair trial, in a criminal proceedings are superior to any arguable right that she has to shield negative information that might harm her case.

Corey has an obligation under the law to disclose any material facts which might support, OR IMPUGN her case.  She represents the state, and the State’s goal is the lawful application of justice; regardless of who wins/loses.

Think about the ramifications in all of State Attorney Angela Corey’s responsibilities if she, or anyone, is allowed to hide evidence which exonerates the accused, and achieve a guilty verdict despite the transparency of innocence, which only she is privy to.

What does that say about the integrity of the office?

See how dangerous it can be to have such legal authority in positions of power?

Yeah, I think we all can find current parallels:

        After reading her complaint, I get the Wicked Witch/Wizard of Oz inferences. I agree she needs a bucket of water. IF only it were that simple… What a great movie, that we are still talking about it now! And, we all know who the “Wizard” is, or is not.

        I believe buckets of water now belong to the EPA/Gubmunt. Put in your request, and we will see how long it takes. Start the countdown clock so we can watch too, and get the popcorn ready.

        I want to know what Bernie, the alleged Lead Prosecutor has to say about this. What was his counsel to Ben K? Where is his depo? And the depo of the other “Tech Expert” she said she used to try and replicate Ben K’s report.

        So the Queen complains that they gave all of this info to the Defense, correct? It was up to them to find the needles in the haystack. It’s not her fault if they can’t/don’t find pix, video, docs, and correspondence that WOULD SHOW THE WORLD/SHINE THE LIGHT on the true life and family of her alleged victim, Son of The Oh? She was going to continue the BIG LIES, IF, and UNTIL she got caught.

        Is that accurate?

      • Quite so. As long as there are no repercussions for their crimes, this behavior will continue. It’s not enough to administer a slap on the wrist and have them escape after issuing an insincere “Mea Culpa”. Let these criminal prosecutors face the same sentences that they are trying to wrongfully subject their victims to.

        How many people have rotted for decades in prison, or even been executed, because of this type of Shenanigans? Zimmerman faced LIFE i prison had he been convicted.

          Exactly… and quite literally. We need to enact state and federal STATUTES that authorize pretty much that exact penalty. Sort of the “eye for an eye” thing.

            That’s precisely what “eye for eye” meant in one of the three instances where it was used.

            If a malicious witness arises to accuse a person of wrongdoing, then both parties to the dispute shall appear before the LORD, before the priests and the judges who are in office in those days. The judges shall inquire diligently, and if the witness is a false witness and has accused his brother falsely, then you shall do to him as he had meant to do to his brother. So you shall purge the evil from your midst. And the rest shall hear and fear, and shall never again commit any such evil among you. Your eye shall not pity. It shall be life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot.
            — Deuteronomy 19:16–21

            Seeing such a law implemented in this country has been something of a dream of mine for several years.

      We need to have racketeering legislation against these collaborators, based on the available mountain of evidence. All that the racketeering charges need to get going is the pattern of criminal behavior of civilian gangs, or the continued pattern of unethical behavior by justice workers. They will fight tooth and nail though – seek revenge even.

    A victory for the good guy Ben Kruidbos! It’s appalling that Corey/BDLR/grunts can drag out the suit to drive up the cost Kruidbos will owe his attorney. Corey can just use taxpayer dollars to defend her corrupt office, hopefully Kruidbos’ Civil Suit/Attorney was taken on a contingency.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if that skank Corey wanted a “confidental settlement” to tamp down the bad publicity she’ll recieve, but Corey may not want to settle for the price Kruidbos’ attorney demands, now that would be Justice.

  30. Angela Corey. I have a story for you. An 12 year old had a baby boy. Her mom was a crack head. Both mom and baby put in foster care. Mom left at legal age than her son was given to the mom. Step father beat that sweet little sole. Over and over again. School noticed his bruises one day. Taken to the hospital broken ribs and more. Where were you for him. You failed him. You said it was your job to protect the children. This child you failed striks out. The anger of abuse and neglect of this twelve year old child you failed To protect, killed his 2 year old little brother. See, you have now failed two babies. I’m crying for this child as you fight to lock him away for life. The crime is how angry you became when three attorneys fought for this baby and stopped you from locking away the child for life that you failed.
