A CALL FOR A COMPLETE INVESTIGATION
I thought about your last e-mail this morning and it occurred to me that you actually might not know that the Sykes case is not only a serious matter, but, an innocent senior citizen has in fact been deprived of her liberty, property, civil and human rights. Indeed, it is possible that you might not know that the Illinois Legislature enacted the statute described and interpreted by Sodini to protect against exactly the type of situation that has occurred in Sykes. (Indeed, it appears that jurisdictional protections appear to be honored by non-compliance in many cases such as Tyler, Wyman, etc – the GAO report of September last confirms this theory)
The problem that you face – or will face is the fact that like Justice Sotomeyer the public is getting ‘sick and tired’ of lawyers claiming innocence for bad deeds that are clearly prohibited by statute. Too often Judges have stated when confronted by a lay person – “ignorance of the law is not excuse!” Members of the 2nd oldest profession also use the excuse of I did not know the law and other members are sympathetic as they impose strict standards on the public. The Sykes’ treatment of Gloria Sykes is an example. Thus, while you, Stern, and Schmiedel ‘cut corners’ and act under color of statute to deprive Gloria and others of their civil rights you and the Court demand that people like Gloria Sykes strictly comply with the Rules. Want an example? You, Adam, and Schmiedel were well aware when you filed the sanction motion against me that the Court had no jurisdiction! The net was you wasted your time, my time and the Court’s time. Further you will spend hundreds of hours in defending a very viable civil rights suit that could result in a seven figure verdict against you personally.
A second example is the Sykes case itself. You, Stern, and Schmiedel are well aware that the Petition to appoint Carolyn as plenary guardian is defective, and that the required jurisdictional notices were never written or mailed. Thus, as a matter of law the Probate Court for over three years has operated without jurisdiction. The ‘cover-up’ is the Son of Greylord and ultimately will result in some sort of serious prosecution of the culpable. How could you not know of the jurisdictional problem? Justice Sotomeyer’s decision in Jerman answers the question – you are presumed to know the law and that presumption is very strong. Clout only works for a short period of time – it works until the ‘clout’ is required to account. All that said, Gloria Sykes and Mary Sykes have a very viable civil rights suit. [as the court has no jurisdiction there is no immunity and what would be absolute immunity for you as a GAL does not exist in the Sykes case]
There are many more examples of the Sykes guardian and guardian ad litem acting sans jurisdiction. An injunction was entered without the prior filing of a verified petition and without the mandatory bond. The citation proceeding is flawed! You as a seasoned lawyer owe a duty to the ‘ward’ and to the ‘court’ to prevent such misconduct. You have a great deal of temerity even suggesting that you are an innocent and that the only misconduct that you know of is that of Gloria Sykes. Such a rationalization is obscene!
A while back – after the decision of the Appellate Court throwing out the sanction for lack of jurisdiction – I offered you the simple proposition (Safe Harbor e-mails) of you reporting the facts to the Court in exchange for my just forgetting about the Civil Rights remedy that I am entitled. Your rejected the proposition. This of course was your right. I called upon you to join with me and call for an honest, complete, and comprehensive investigation of the Sykes case – if you had nothing to hide. Again you and Stern rejected the call. A simple review of the facts, the docket, the transcripts of the Sykes case and the reason for the rejection is obvious.
No, I am not going to make any more offers of settlement – I have written law enforcement and others demanding a full complete and honest investigation. Mary Sykes is in her 4th year of captivity. Over a million dollars in her assets have not been accounted for and certainly not inventoried. (For the record – I was Mary’s attorney and wrote up her will – I know what her estate consisted of and I know exactly how many double eagles she had and what they were worth – I could care less whether the guardian – who had the safety deposit box drilled shared with you and Stern the ‘booty!’ By your e-mails and non-action you have aided and abetted Income tax evasion) I am appealing to you as a human being to reach out to Gloria Sykes and the organizations that support Mary Sykes and ‘free Mary Sykes!’ Join with Ms. Denison, and the organizations that support Mary and Gloria Sykes and request a complete honest and comprehensive investigation of not only the Sykes case, but all the cases in which similar events as have occurred in Sykes are rampant!
Right now you are ‘young’ and do not face the avarice that many senior citizens are confronted. Instead of finding themselves in the bosom of loving families, they are confronted by children who cannot wait for grandma to die before seeking to loot her estate. Even more troubling is the appearance Cynthia Farenga and Adam Stern who aid and abet the scenario and when confronted by the consequences of *** come forth with ” Gloria did it!” The climate that you helped create is a cancer and will be something that you most probably will personally confront in your household as you have demonstrated to your children and grandchildren that it is OK to deny grandma her liberty, her property, her civil rights and human rights. Newton point out that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction and this is one of the primary laws of nature. Today we recite the law by – ‘what goes around comes around’
Thus, the joining with me, Denison, Sykes and the Anti Elder Abuse organizations in calling for an honest investigation of the Sykes case you act in your own best long term interests. Even at this point in time – doing the ‘right thing’ will provide you with great benefits; however, ***** The decision is yours and we all will fight the death to preserve your right to act inappropriately and in derogation of your own best interests.
And I need to add that Ms. Farenga, you need to do an Emergency Motion for Tuesday to non suit this Probate case due to lack of jurisdiction, attach YB’s declaration and Gloria’s declaration, although I’m sure Gloria will be there in court and Ken and I will be glad to draft up the order for you, and serve the Motion by personal service on each of the adult siblings and children as Illinois Probate Law dictates, and LET MARY GO FREE back to her own home! You know there is no jurisdiction, AS knows there is no jurisdiction. Perhaps the other sister’s affidavit will be in my mail today, I’ll go check. Gloria will just testify. Hopefully it won’t last an hour as she lambasts you and AS for your outrageous behavior!
Please draft the motion and personally serve it on Monday to all the adult children and siblings of Mary Sykes.
Ken, we need calls to Non Suit on an emergency basis and get the FBI/police to investigate bank accounts. Where are the gold coins!
