Seriously. I get a choice? Please be with KDD on Friday in his time of need…

Friday at 11 am with oral argument, that’s when Ken goes before the Review Board at One Prudential Plaza, 15th floor with the ARDC Review Board over his case where he did NOTHING wrong except try to investigate the Sykes case, met up with two nasty GAL’s, one of whom told him outright, you investigate this case and I will ensure you are disbarred–just like a wise guy, and the rest is history.

What did we all find after that fateful investigation?  A probate court without jurisdiction–operating now for 4 years, no discovery permitted by the younger daughter Gloria and millions of dollars in gold coins missing, a safe deposit box in the name of Gloria and Mary drilled out in early 2010, GAL’s that told the court repeatedly “the coins are imaginary, your honor”, GAL’s that told a tribunal “they investigated” by serving subpoenas and then the Record on Appeal comes out and it shows that there were no subpoenas served in fact, no return of service, no certificate of completeness.  I can go on and on about Sykes, but I won’t.

Then we get an ARDC that says no atty can talk about corruption or we have to apologize at the same time we do that and try to convince people it doesn’t exist–despite the fact that most of you, my readers, come from the probate blogs and know that the probate blogs have been ablaze for years on corruption — corruption that goes to the highest levels, from the trial courts up to your state supreme courts and with no explanation and no relief.  Millions of dollars in uninventoried assets missing, tens of thousands that “fall off” inventories and yearly accountings and the judges look the other way and the GAL’s and guardians and conservators rub their hands together and cackle with glee. They get what percent for doing that?  Now I have an experienced investigative reporter from Westchester New York, former atty Dean Loren, telling me that it looks like the loot is going to campaign contributions and both parties are doing it!  I have Janet Phelan, an experienced reporter telling me to pull property records and in her case she found definite trends of money laundering from the dirtiest judges in Calfornia–and got them off her case.  She found pulling Judicial Ethics and Financial disclosures–which must be detailed by law, is the best way hands down to get rid of the dirt.  Then there are the people who ask me their judges that are absolutely awful and unjust were never elected.  What’s up with that? Then I am told by my sources that the powers that be have an honest and clean attorney elected to be a judge, suddenly he retires after a couple months, and then what is appointed is dirt.

So I guess attorneys have to apologize for talking about corruption, and I am sorry I have to do that.  I really am.  I can’t practice law effectively, I can’t explain this to my clients, because they turn on me and ask what are YOU doing about all this.  I have no answer. Ken and I can write to the AG’s the FBI and we can blog, but that’s about it.  We are not prosecutors, true investigators with databases handy at our fingertips, etc.

At some point, the system just gets caught up in itself and there is no answer.

Ken’s oral argument is Friday, my trial is on October 28, 2013 and I got told by a former ARDC attorney that the ARDC never gives up, they keep on going until they get you–despite all evidence to the contrary!  I’ve been an attorney for 27 years and I’ve always believe in truth and justice, and when it turns out your client’s case is a dud, graciously get rid of it or get yourself out of the case.  Don’t ever get involved in injustice because it’s just bad karma and the universe WILL make you pay for that, and the longer you go on, the larger the repayment will be.

It’s always easier, I have found to tell the truth, to act with justice and honor, to tell your clients you are an officer of the court and as such you won’t suborn perjury, fight a useless fight for their own greed and evil, and their case just fell apart and you recommend a stipulated dismissal with prejudice.

I’m not going to tell the ARDC what to do, but if this truly is their policy–go after honest and ethical attorneys, don’t stop when you are faced with the undeniable truth–it’s bad karma and never works out in the end.

But the other thing I know is that you can’t interfere with someone else’s karma and you can’t control people.  That’s up to the universe who will always be a much stricter school marm than you or I will always be.

In the meantime, Mr. Ken Cooper of Probate Sharks, another famous Probate Blog that decries the lack of justice in our nation’s probate courts, provides us today with the following sentiments:

There are times and events where individuals and small groups of people stand fast against tyranny and corruption. Some of the heroes are historical figures and many are lost in the fog of history.  Famous notable examples are the Spartans at Thermopylae, The Alamo, von Staufenberg of “The Hitler Bomb Plot” and Sir Thomas Mann.
Few, will note or remember the sacrifice of the “Students against Hitler”, Hildegard Gruenigan, Krisof Probst, Axel Denk and Klaus Schneider. This heroic group printed flyers denouncing Hitler and his evil cabal.  They all paid for their efforts with their lives and died in concentration camps. The evil they fought against was ultimately exposed and destroyed.
All of the above paid severe penalties for their heroism and courage but made their mark in the ultimate victory against tyranny an corruption  We in Illinois, have our own examples of courage in Ken Ditkowsky and JoAnne Denison and we are morally responsible to provide them with every support possible.  Please be with them in their time of need…tomorrow.  KC

I made the choice on November 28, 1961 – I have a need to be able to look into the mirror and like the person who is reflected therein.    I have from time to time been offered ‘bribes’ to back off from a legal position and have refused in every case.    Intimidation has not worked either, and it certainly is not going to work now.
The material uncovered warrants an HONEST complete and comprehensive investigation.   The hearing panel finding that Mary’s two sisters had knowledge of whatever competency hearing was allegedly held – there was none – needs investigation.      As neither sister was called, how could a panel consisting of two lawyers reach such a conclusion?   Lawyers know about evidence.    What is even more serious is the fact that the hearing panel never stated that the knowledge was ‘prior’ knowledge!

But this goes to the very core of the problem. “Sell out and we will ensure your continued viability. Stick to your guns and you are sooooo…outta here.”
And it works so well, with most people. Who wants to spend the rest of their lives scrapping for a living, having to explain their lack of professional standing? Who wants to live in a cabin on a mountain in Mexico?
Most people are grounded in their economic and professional status. When people are otherwise grounded, in a moral or ethical belief system, they become dispensable.

So I’m talking to E*******, a former ARDC attorney and she said I probably  have to make a choice whether I like my law license better of if I want to blog about and expose corruption and clean up our court system.SERIOUSLY????

Is there a choice there?

That might be great for an opening argument.  Who in their right mind asks a question like that, and it was coming from a former ARDC attorney!!!

The real question, is how do I explain all of this then to my clients.  Well, I used to blog about corruption so we could clean up the courts so that you, my client could get a fair shake in this courtroom today, but then the ARDC asked me to make a choice between my law license or cleaning up the court system, and so that’s why when we get to court EXPECT THE JUDGE AND OPPOSING COUNSEL TO BE UTTERLY CORRUPT AND THE ARDC HAS MANDATED THIS WITH IMPUNITY.

She really just wanted to get off the phone after she realized where the entire conversation was going and how there was no real answer to any of this.  Her excuse was that she has never done a case blogging about corruption and I should find an attorney with experience in that!

another day in ARDC paradise.
