Finally–relief from the ARDC!

Note:  Apparently, today both Ken Ditkowsky and I received a notice from the ARDC that attorney Peter Schmeidel had filed a complaint against the two of us and that the ARDC was taking no action!  Way to go Ms. Black!  We are not getting paid for all of our help on this case.  Ken and I are outraged at the complete lack of procedure, protections and assistance to Mary G Sykes, a 93 year old woman ripped from her own home so that her one daughter Carolyn could sell the house and put the money in a trust fund Carolyn benefits from.
Now, from Ken Ditkowsky:
I have to file my 253 notice and the Answer on or before April 27.  There will be another telephone conference concerning discovery on May 4 at noon.   The ARDC will want to take some depositions.   The only deposition that they have mentioned to date is that of Gloria Sykes.   However, I assume that they will want to take my deposition and that of Scott Evans.    To take those depositions they will have to subpeona witnesses.   I will not furnish anyone, except me.
arranging for the discovery will eat up about six months.   In the meantime I have outstanding interrogatories, request to admit, and a request for documents.  The administrator is in a bind.  He has not done the required investigation required by the Civil Practice Act.   It is apparent that the ARDC complaint was intended to frighten me and get me to put in my horns and go the way of all flesh.
It looks like Ms. Black is getting an education.    ON april 4, 2012 Schmeidel filed yet another complaint against Ms. Denison and myself.   the complaint was another attack based upon the fact that we reported his ethically challenged conduct.   Ms. Black sent PS a letter on April 11 telling him the ARDC was not interested.
This letter is important as it is an admission that the ARDC complaint filed against me was filed for a wrongful purpose – had it not been, it should have generated yet another count.   Thus, two things are disclosed  1) the ARDC is recognizing that Stern, Farenga and Schmiedel are using it to cover up the fact that:
1) the Court lacks jurisdiction to interfere with Gloria Sykes Lumberman award and to continue the Probate fiasco that involves Mary (Sodini) and
2) that we are in 21st Century America and there are in fact Civil Rights that citizens enjoy and
3) that the US Attorney is alive and well and available to prosecute lawyers, judges and others who think that justice equals clout and criminal conduct is going to be overlooked by who is your clout.
The denial of PS’s latest complaint hopefully is an indication that we are recruited Ms. Black to the cause of equal protection of the law for senior citizens!

We don’t care how much money you’re making–directly or indirectly from Probate or a nursing home or home health care wired-in business.

PS – This blog is primarily for entertainment purposes only and please don’t file any pleadings or documents in court without checking with the sources for errors. My rate to review is $300 per hour.  Sorry, but portions of this blog have to be entertaining so we can get the word out.  There is most certainly a great deal of (stinging) truth in it, esp. for the GAL’s, the probate court and a society that ignores (thereby condoning) the sleazy world of probate, and in particular the 18th floor of the Daley Center in Chicago, but everyone needs to understand, these are not pleadings, there is no Motion, Response and Reply set by any court, together with extended legal argument recorded by a court reporter and subject to a Motion to Reconsider if errors or new evidence is found.  So don’t take it that way.  Like a good reporter, do your own due diligence and check with the sources first.  Honestly, I have to explain blogs to attorneys?  Have they no life? Do they not know how to email me or use the “comments” section at all?
