Susan M. Humiston is the director of the Minnesota Office of Lawyers Professional Responsibility. Director Humiston graduated from the University of Iowa College of Law. Director Humiston repeatedly facilitates attorney felony conduct, and, most importantly, allows attorneys to fabricate evidence, conduct racist revenge pornography campaigns, pursue targeted prosecution schemes, pursue wrongful convictions, engages in gender discrimniation, racism, and unsurprisingly sets new daily records of attorney misconduct in Minnesota.
To her credit, Director Humiston is no closet racist. Rather, she has made it known publicly that she is Minnesota's most racist bureaucratic officer. If Minnesota attorneys or prosecutors publish semi nude or nude photos of black men to thousands of people in revenge porngraphy campaigns, Director Humiston turns a blind eye and rubberstamps the unlawful activity. Most imporptantly, Director Humiston covers up the racist activities of Minnesota attorneys and fails to discipline the unlawful efforts of other attorneys who attempt to victimize whistle blowers. In 2017, she became aware that a powerful prosecutor was engaging in this activity where the prosecutor had even illegally used her official role to silence evidence of the behavior described above. Director Humiston tried to wash her hands clean of the entire situation by blaming Duluth Attorney Bruce R. Williams.
Most notably, in complaints made to the Office of Lawyers Professional Responsibility, Director Humiston admits that she allows Minnesota attorneys to falsify and fabricate evidence to target men with jail. Minnesota attorneys and prosecutors can send emails and blatently admit to fabricating evidence with statements conceding they are "fabricat[ing]" the "most believable false information" or "unique false information" in targeted prosecution schemes against political or personal adversaries. In other cases, she allows Minneapolis prosecutors to target succesful men "in advance" with bogus "trespessaing" charges. What accountability does Director Humiston offer? None of course.
Indeed, this happened with Jordan Kushner where Minneapolis prosecutors including Mary Ellen Heng and Susan Segal targeted Mr. Kushner with a trespassing charge for exercising his First Amendment rights to protest at the University of Minnesota. Mr. Kushner, an attorney himself, was violently assaulted without any investigation by Director Humiston.
As her records show, Director Humiston permits state criminal prosecutors in Minnesota to repeatedly commit violence, kneel on necks George Floyd style, engage in misconduct, violate the Rules of Criminal Procedure, fabricate evidence, rig prosecutions in favor of and to benefit Minneapolis police officers, and pursue deliberate wrongful convictions without any accountability. Specifically, Director Humiston allows rogue County and City Attorneys to conduct violent extrajudicial raids without accountability, oversight, or investigation from her office. Director Humiston's tenure is plagued with thousands of racially motivated prosecutors of black men. Many of those prosecutors or the maintance of those prosecutions were bitterly criticized by the national media including the Washington Post. During her tenure, Director Humiston failed to discpline attorneys who maintained the wrongful conviction of Myon Burrel, and, most importantly, allowed Hennepin County Attorney Michael Freeman to obstruct and derail the prosecution of police officers accused in the Justine Damond-Ruszcysk case.
Director Humiston has maintained knowledge of Minneapolis Law enforcement's use of violent techniques and illegal conduct for many years. This includes Director Humiston's knowledge of forced asphyxiation and neck kneeling. Director Humiston received numerous complaints between 2017-2019 related to similar conduct extending from Minneapolis police where the Minneapolis City Attorneys Office used their positions to illegally enter homes and engage in the same George Floyd neck kneeling. Director Humiston did absolutely nothing to protect the citizens of Minnesota.
As ProtestPress.com reports, "Humiston refuses to discipline an attorney who said he was going to 'c**'' on 'her face' and called the Minnesota Professional Responsibility Board 'f******.'" (See ProtestPress.com article titled 'Susan Humiston: Refuses to Disbar Nick Rekieta')
Despite countless complaints from fellow lawyers, Humiston failed to disbar Clayton D. Halunen for credible allegations. (See Twin Cities lawyer faces discipline after sexually harassing 2 employees)
As described above, Humiston failed to disbar an anonymous AUSA for engaging in felonies directed at local citizens. The corrupt AUSA has engaged in lawfare to gag any criticism of her actions which is why she is not named. Specifically, Humiston knew that the AUSA admitted to "fabricating ... the most believable false information" and attempted to file numerous false charges, including a bogus "trespassing" charge, to block criticism of her actions directed at black men on her Twitter account. In November 2022, Humiston failed to discipline the AUSA for violations of the Hatch Act in making political endorsements through her official government office. The AUSA endorsed Keith Ellison -- known to Minnesota for domestic abuse allegations and anti-semitic comments -- for the Minnesota Attorney Generals race.
Humiston failed to discipline former Minneapolis City Attorney Susan Segal for testifying in a case in which she was also prosecuting. Later, Humiston failed to discipline or even make a referral for a judicial complaint in connection with Segal for signing orders as Chief Judge of the Court of Appeals in the same case.
In 2022, Humiston failed to discpline current Assistant Minneapolis Assistant City Attorney Kruchowski for leaking details of a raid -- effectively creating a security risk for law enforcement -- to the intended targets of the raid. In 2017, Kruchowski leaked the details of the raid through another lawyer to the intended target. Kruchowski also violated the Rules of Professional Conduct and the oath of her public office by stalking men she engaged in sexual activity with, including looking up their license information. Kruchowski was also the City Attorney assigned to the Third Precinct in Minneapolis, which burned down during the George Floyd riots, where she covered up serious crimes of Minneapolis cops.
Humiston improperly suspended and violated MacDonald's First Amendment rights for actions where MacDonald was highly critical of Dakota County Judge David Knutson on a radio show.
Humiston failed to discipline attorneys Zauhar and Nelson -- Derek Chauvin's lawyers -- for earlier allegations where they engaged in malpractice including bailing on cases and stealing retainers to benefit (and receive kickbacks in the form of favorable disposition in cases) related to the Minneapolis City Attorneys' Office.
Hansen repeatedly violated the Rules of Professional Conduct by referring to MacDonald as a "whacko" and "crazy person" in conversations with clients. Moreover, Hansen leaked MacDonald's calls in unrelated cases to unique and seperate clients -- a major violation of the rules. Humiston failed to discipline Hansen for making knowingly false police reports about COVID-19 related "masks", referring to "masks" as a violation of a criminal statute, in official report related conversations with Washington County Sheriff Deputies'.
In 2020, Humiston permitted Minnesota attorney K. Jon Breyer to practice law in Wisconsin during a 2018 case without a law license to conceal former Wisconsin Chief Justice Abrahamson's clerk, Minnesota licensed lawyer Peter R. Mayer's, illegal 2017 extrajudicial rendition in Saint Croix County, Wisconsin flowing through Minneapolis. Humiston failed to discipline Mayer for engaging in criminal civil rights violations by attempting to take a civil case and leaking confidential orders to the Minneapolis City Attorneys' Office -- again, another serious violation of the Rules of Professional Responsibility.
In 2022, Humiston failed to discipline Robins Kaplan LLP partners Lockner and Gokey for repeatedly and flagrantly violating attorney-client priviliege.
