I would estimate that about 70 to 90% of the Sykes file on appeal has “added material”–that’s right, stuff that was not there in the original appeal. You can tell because the original appellate bates numbering system was first lined out with thick black marker so new numbers could be put on for the new numbering system.
Click on the page where you can find the “appellate records” on this website. You will see that about 70% to 90% of pages were “added” and bear no thick black marker redactions.
How does this happen when court files are supposed to be inviolate and the ultimate in trustworthiness?
That’s right! Is this crazy or what? You will note that items that were copied and sent on the first appeal have a bates number that is simply blacked out by the clerk with marker. I would estimate that 90% of items found in those first volumes DO NOT HAVE ANY BLACK MARKER REDACTIONS OF THE ORIGINAL APPELLATE BLACK MARKER meaning tons of items were “recently added” for this appeal.
How DOES that happen, Ms. Dorothy Brown, clerk of court!?!?!?
The younger daughter is esp furious over the fact the “notice of rights” to Mary Sykes was sent to Naperville, once again, bringing up the question, WHY IS MARY BEING SERVED NOTICES TO THE WRONG VENUE from the Cook County Clerk of Court (logically, the case should have been transferred to Naperville), and why did Judge Stuart and Connors say repeatedly they “did not look at things in the file” and yet the notice to Mary says, of course, write to the Presiding Judge if there are any problems in your guardianship.
GJS has written to the Presiding judge over and over. Mary has letters placed in the file asking (begging) for an attorney so her rights may be protected. The court repeatedly ignored these. the Presiding Judge was informed by GJS about these.
Why bother to send out these notices and waste good postage if the is only a lip service provided by the Cook County Court system?
It’s amazing that when all of these miscreants start to lie and fudge, again, I note that a 10 YEAR OLD GIRL SKIPPING SCHOOL CAN DO A BETTER JOB FORGING A NOTE FROM MOM SHE WAS SICK than Farenga and Stern can lie about the court having jurisdiction and the court strictly following the Probate Act.
Note to miscreants: your (obvious) tracks will be exposed. There will be many, many things you will not remember to cover up and many you will not be able to even if you wanted.
I want to personally thank Ms. Pat O’Brien, Chief Clerk of Appeals for bringing this serious file fudging and tampering issue to light. Ms. O’Brien is doing her job.
What Ken and I want to know is WHY ARE WE BEING PROSECUTED AND PERSECUTED, when the miscreants get a “free parking/get out of jail” card?
