"I was a victim, but I refused to be victimized"
On May 13, 2014, I beat two veteran litigators Ron Richards & David Eisen and defeated their attempts to sanction me and seal my deposition transcript.
This was the modern-day fulfillment of the Maccabbee victory against the Greeks: " You delivered the mighty into the hands of the weak, the many into the hands of the few, the impure into the hands of the pure, the wicked into the hands of the righteous." like David slaying Goliath. Fishel Cohen bombarded me with sex texting 24/7 while my husband was trying to me diane polonsky. It was a lose lose situation, I just prayed and prayed.
They attempted to bully me just like their sexually perverted client Fishel Cohen [Philip Cohen] tried to bully me, but as I recently told a reporter covering the case: "I was victimized, but I refuse to be a victim."
I stood up for my rights against my oppressor Fishel Cohen [Philip Cohen] and his hired guns (his 2 overpaid, unethical and pompous and arrogant lawyers Ron Richards & David Eisen) who turned out to be as vapid and as morally bankrupt as their clients.
Fishel [Philip Cohen] & Richard Cohen spent thousands of thousands of dollars and got nowhere in the case. In the end, I kicked ass, and stood for up for myself, and emerged victorious. I got the videotape of my deposition which they plotted so hard to suppress and prevent me from getting,
Imagine the shame and embarrassment of lawyers Ron Richards & David Eisen, that they were bested by little ol' me, a single mother of 4 on welfare. Imagine attorney David Eisen, a regional partner in his firm, returning from court on May 13, 2014, answering to his superiors, having to explain how his motions were denied and how he came home with nothing. How did he explain to his senior partners that he was bested by me, a non-lawyer? I'm sure he came up with millions of reasons and lame excuses why he lost, to save his job. But the bottom line is, that when he looks in the mirror, this pompous male attorney will have to come to grips with the reality that "Diane Polonsky bested him in court."
Here's the background:
In March of 2014, David Eisen of Wilson Elser representing Willco Construction went in on ex parte to the Superior Court of California to force me into a "very important" court order mandatory deposition.
Willco Construction (Eisen) and Philip Cohen via unethical Ronald Richards ran to Judge Elizabeth White ( lawyers cost lots of money), telling her they must force me into an immediate 14 hour deposition ASAP for whatever reason that was 'SO IMPORTANT'
But, as we can see from samples of my video transcript, and my 'opposition to sanctions', Willco Construction counsel and Philip Cohen, along with his unethical attorney wanted primarily to talk about sex and, oral copulation, sex with Barry Polonsky, how big or small Philip Cohen's penis size is, 'blow jobs', kissing, and licking. How embarrassing for unethical Ronald Richards to be heard first hand, what he sought and went to the courts for and declared as 'very important' subject material to depose me of!
Leaving the embarrassment aside of showing unethical Ronald Richards poor lawyermanship and seeking the courts support to endorse as 'important' and 'time urgency", it made me the victim, throw-up all night. It also made me vulnerable to sexual intimidation and harassment by Philip Cohen having the forum to hoover over me, answer his sick perverted questions of fantasies over and over again. I was refused a court ordered advocate, and I was unable to pay for an attorney to help shelter me from his talking and further sexual harassment of me.
They bamboozled the court with the urgency to issuing a forced deposition of me, for no other reason then to sandbag me, I believe sandbagging the court and Judge Elizabeth White as well.
Background - During my deposition, David Eisen, Willco's counsel told me that he would force sanctions against me if I didn't cooperate. Both Willco Construction counsel and Philip Cohen of Mansfield Equities counsel, unethical Ronald Richards jointly filed a request to the court to sanction me for not showing up to another round of their sexually gratifying charged questions of my body parts and how Philip Cohen liked having sex with me (totally sick and disgraceful).

Willco Construction (Richard Cohen - President) and unethical Ronald Richards (handholder of Philip Cohen and Mansfield Equities) with, probably their well padded shoulder suits, strutted into court on Tuesday, May 13, 2014 with their threat to me being hotly pursued, experienced seasoned lawyering, went into court that morning and got denied, as I opposed their motion. The Judges ruling is on the record.
RICHARD COHEN OF WILLCO & AXENT FAMILY BUSINESS
REPRESENTED BY COUNSEL DAVID EISEN
What happened on May 13, 2014 was 'blind justice'. Baruch Hashem our judicial system, while still swayed by human nature and some natural biases, the laws founded on our forefathers motives were still proudly based on 'all' being treated equally (in pro per or represented by counsel).
Shelly Mandel, David Eisen, unethical Ronald Richards, all well seasoned 'defense' attorneys have not won against me. I am three for three. Should David Eisen or unethical Ronald Richards, or their buddies, have an ego issue with this, they will continue to harass me, out number me, out man me, and with great financial backing, only continue to go after me, for no other reason then intimidation and harassment.
Our civil liberties, right of free passage, right to live with-out fear of retaliation, threats, or harassment, whether it stems from a domestic partner, an employer (big company versus the little guy who can't afford to fight back), has bequeath me the honor of success. The availability of the internet, Google search has opened up the doors for any individual who needs case law, to just "google it" and find what information lawyers have been privy too, and have used in the courts to win their case.
David Eisen and unethical Ronald Richards, walked out of court May 13, 2014, mumbling rubbage about the woman who opposed their motion for sanctions, and won, who only has an AA degree.
"The Laws of Diminishing Returns". How much do you think it is going to cost these high paid $700 an hour lawyers, and their support staff to seek maybe $8,000 - $10,000 worth of reimbursement? And from a woman who is on welfare, as they fired her.
Just a simple cost analysis would indicate, that it would cost Richard Cohen, President of Willco Construction and Philip Cohen, his son - just how much more money to seek filing fee's and copier cost recovery?
The only reason for Willco to fund paying more legal fee's to seek nominal fee's from a woman on welfare, who they know will never be able to actually pay, would simply be to cause 'infliction of distress' and harassment. In layman's term, they would walk over a dollar to pick-up a penny just to mess with me, to make my life miserable, and possibly to boost their dominant male egos.
Willco Construction, represented by David Eisen, partner of 'Wilson Elser , told me at the end of my deposition, and email after email thereafter, that this could all go away, if I would just sign this little piece of paper they wrote up for me.fi
The paper stated that unless I sign and dismiss the case with prejudice, and acknowledge that they did not give me any incentive -money (a settlement financial offer to show any guilt on their behalf), they will sanction me.f
I refuse to sign under threat of sanctions, they followed through on their frivolous and retaliation threat. They filed, and both of these smug lawyers jointly came to court on Tuesday morning, May 13th, and lost their 'sure bet' of getting a motion of sanctions against me, as I opposed it with my opposition. For why else would they go through the embarrassment of losing, and costing their clients thousands of dollars seeking money they know they will never get, if they didn't think they would win?
In my opinion, this is just Philip Cohen and his father Richard Cohen's efforts to bury me, and destroy the critical damming evidence against Philip Cohen's behavior. The families marketing efforts to preserve their families honor and reputation, at my expense. As a cover-up for Richard Cohen's son's improper and bad bad behavior. For as it says, "When you have no basis for argument, abuse the plaintiff" Cicero.

A personal note: I was under (and still am now) a great deal of duress. I lost everything, my husband, my house, my business. I sold all my jewelry, and everything I could, in order just to have food on the table. For four months I had no money for food, and Philip Cohen gave me a hundred bucks.
Debbie Summer worked very hard to get us Tomchai Shabbos for food money, as we were only living on pasta month after month. We were lucky if we had chicken for Shabbos. I went to Jewish Family Services who told me to wait in line on the sidewalk, with the homeless from the city, to get food from the food pantry if I needed their assistance for food.
Debbie Summer was diligent and it took four months to get services started by her support and efforts. I would also like to mention that a woman who was recently divorced by the name of Lauren Mayesh, helped stock my freezer with leftover Shabbos food that she had manage to collect from strangers , to help give us protein and something other then pasta.
During that time, my trips to welfare took delays due to me being constantly going to criminal court for the stay away violations that I was subpoenaed to be there, as well as Shelly Mandell, BP's attorney, trying to force the courts to allow BP to go back into our home.
During all this time, I was bombarded by Philip Cohen and his promising me marriage and home, and protection, and raise my children. He once said to me "I had a vision of putting (blank) son, on my shoulders and dancing around with him sitting on my shoulders during Simcha Torah".
From the entire heart and being, I would like to thank Debbie Summer, Tomchai Shabbas, and Lauren Mayesh for helping put food on our table, when we only had pasta to live on. Thank you Debbie, Lauren, and Tomchai Shabbos (more to follow).
Aish HaTorah Rav Moshe Cohen sent me back to this: (which he was aware of as noted above)
Barry Polonsky regularly punched holes in the walls and knocked down any door between him and I.
There were blood stains on my bedroom wall.
Barry Polonsky arsenal of illegal guns and live ammunition, the police had nearly two dozen stock piling of guns. The week before I got the Domestic Violence restraining order, he had gone to Big 5 and purchased bullets for these guns.
Rabbi Moshe Cohen of Aish Los Angeles, and Rabbi Shlomo Goldberg were aware of Barry Polonsky being a drug addict. Aish HaTorah Rav Moshe Cohen and Rabbi Shlomo Goldberg spoke almost weekly about taking my kids away from me and blaming me for Barry Polonsky's being an angry drug addict, and their remedy was for me to fix it!
