Tracy Cogan and Lee Solomon: Christie Scandal Continues

Continuing where we left off… At first glance, it could be said Tracy Cogan manipulated Judge Lee A. Solomon into harboring a personal vendetta toward Bruce Aristeo, simply by whispering sweet nothings things in his ear; Tracy Cogan is well known for lying to judges, and why that conduct is tolerated is no mystery when the lie being told is known by both parties.  The conduct is only part of the dog and pony show… for the record.


Tracy Cogan, the demoted Domestic Violence Section Chief, under the supervision of the former Camden County Prosecutor Warren W. Faulk, rendered the special bail application and presented it to Judge Lee Solomon.  Since there is no record of Solomon meeting with Tracy Cogan, or whether Judge Lee Solomon and Prosecutor Faulk spoke prior to signing-off on the application, indeed, the subject of their discussion must have been substantial.  But for the highly political Judge Solomon to sign an application that would place his position as a judge under scrutiny, the substantial reason must have been politically motivated.


What is documented are both Tracy Cogan and the Judge Solomon’s blatant violations of the Rules of Professional Conduct, and of both the United States and New Jersey Constitutions, articles that Tracy Cogan and Lee A. Solomon swore to uphold.  It is clear Judge Lee Solomon conspired with Camden County Prosecutors to conceal misconduct behind a retaliatory prosecution.  If not, then Solomon was too ignorant to recognize he was being used.

When taken, the NJ Oath of Allegiance is stated as:

“I, Lee A. Solomon, do solemnly swear that I will support the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of New Jersey, and that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same and to the Governments established in the United States and in this State, under the authority of the people So help me God.”

But Judge Solomon didn’t stop there.  He signed Tracy Cogan’s Asset Forfeiture Motion for seized property; Whistleblower Bruce Aristeo’s computers and computer devices.  This gave the Camden County Prosecutor detectives an opportunity to rummage through and delete information regarding a potential lawsuit against them.

Based on the actions of Camden County Prosecutor Tracy Cogan, Detective Christopher Auletto, and High Tech Crimes Unit Commander Thomas Di Nunzio, the objective of the Forfeiture Motion and Communications Warrants was not to “sneak-a-peek” into Bruce Aristeo’s files, but to erase and/or destroy information.


Did Gov. Chris Christie intend to place a republican in the high court who had no qualms about violating the people’s constitutionally protected rights?  Based on Judge Lee A. Solomon’s conduct, he is not the “poster-boy” of an independent judiciary, nor is he a model judge to uphold the confidence and respect of the general public.  The Republican party is no stranger to corruption; they have made their culture of corruption the norm.  Nevertheless, Christie admitted:

“This judicial independence thing is a crock, it’s a complete crock.”  Gov. Chris Christie even went on to say he would continue to criticize the court as he saw fit.  He then emphasized “I believe I have a First Amendment right to do it, and I am obligated to do it as governor of New Jersey.”
