1. A COMPLETE AND UNBIASED PHYSICIAN AND MENTAL EXAMINATION OF MARY SYKES TO BE CONDUCTED AT THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO CENTER FOR ADVANCED MEDICINE OR NORTHWESTERN UNIVERSITY. This examination must be conducted by real doctors, not doctors who are willing to sign certificates of incompetency without examining the patent – the record in this case reveals such a physician. It also reveals that the plenary guardian signed one of the certificates representing that she was a PhD. She is not!
2. A COMPLETE INQUIRY AS TO THE PETITION THAT WAS FILED BY MARY SYKES WITH THE AID OF COURT PERSONNEL SEEKING AN ORDER OF PROTECTION. It is amazing that this serious proceeding was totally ignored by the Circuit Court of Cook County and the two guardian ad litem who were assigned to this case. Incidentally why are there two guardian ad litem and what is their role – except to prevent Mary from having legal representation?
3. A COMPLETE INQUIRY AS TO THE ESTATE PLANNING DOCUMENTS THAT WERE PROMULGATED THAT ESSENTIALLY DISINHERITED MARY’S YOUNGER DAUGHTER. This should have been a red flag for the guardian ad litem. Since the plenary guardian was the named abuser in Mary’s petition for a protective order this situation should have been investigated. Demands for the notes on such inquiry by the GALs have resulted in nothing being produced.
4. A COMPLETE INQUIRY INTO ALL FACTS SURROUNDING THE APPOINTMENT OF A PLENARY GUARDIAN FOR MARY SYKES THIS SHOULD BE COMPREHENSIVE AND SHOULD FOCUS UPON SUCH ISSUES AS WHY THE SODINI NOTICES WERE NOT HAD, THE AUGUST 31 2009 TRANSCRIPT, THE APPOINTMENT OF TWO GUARDIAN AD LITEM, THE DISQUALIFICATION OF JOANNE DENISON, THE ATTORNEY EXCLAMATION OF BEING RAILROADED, THE ACTIONS OF THE GAL IN PREVENTING MARY FROM HAVING LEGAL COUNSEL. The Sodini case makes these notices jurisdictional. Will there by a “cover up” of the admitted failure to serve the Sodini notices? If there is , what is law enforcement going to do about it.
5. A COMPLETE INQUIRY INTO THE REMOVAL OF MARY’S ASSETS FROM HER HOME AND FROM HER SAFETY DEPOSIT BOX – INCLUDING THE UNDERSTATEMENT OF THE ASSETS IN THE INVENTORY. This is the heart of the criminal conduct and the unifying thread of this case and the other guardianship abuse cases. This thread also extends to the nursing home financial exploitation cases. Millions in tax revenue is lost by not requiring the guardians to report the ‘loot’ received as ordinary income.
6. ALL FACTORS INVOLVED IN THE ISOLATION OF MARY SYKES FROM NOT ONLY HER YOUNGER DAUGHTER BUT HER SIBLINGS, FRIENDS, AND ACTIVITIES. There is no justifiable reason why Mary’s 80/90 year old friends and relatives cannot freely and in an unfettered manner visit with her and communicate with her. It is important that law enforcement ascertain the motivation for the GALs acting in a concerted manner to perpetuate the isolation. Indeed, the demonization of Gloria Sykes by Adam Stern and Cynthia Faranga (GALs) is not only unjustified but evidence of gross impropriety. Ms. Sykes is a published author and journalist.
7. other and different aspects of the financial exploitation and elder abuse.
I suggest that everyone call/fax/email the court investigators (there are the federal ones or the FBI in the Dirksen building, 219 S. Dearborn Ave, and the are also state investigators in the Thompson center. You can also try to visit them with your petitions. Gloria, can you get their phone/fax/email and we can post that tomorrow? Everyone needs to email them with how Gloria lovingly cared for her mother for 10+ years while Carolyn idly stood by. Also, if you have information on assets, that would be great and can substantiate Gloria’s claims of gold coinage and cash in the mattress and what people inherited in the family and then died, that would be great. And finally, if you can substantiate how Mary has pled repeatedly to get an attorney and go home, that is very helpful too.
