For all of you out there that have been waiting for my blog trial–a trial that consists of nothing but an attorney blogging about probate and other legal issues on a real time basis with real thoughts and feeling and impressions, unvarnished and fully raw, for some reason I received an Order in the mail, no trial for me or this blog next week!
A welcome relief since there are many, many things to do for a 4 day trial. And I’m not even sure it will not run longer than that with all my evidence–4 fact witness, Gloria, Scott, Yolanda and Kathie that are willing to come and testify the blog is the truth, then 4 or more expert witnesses–Atty Ken Ditkowsky on constitutional law, Bev and Ken Cooper on running a blog and local area weekly cable show, John Howard Wyman, the author of a popular and highly rated probate victim book — Against Her Will, available on Amazon, Sylvia Rudek from NASGA. All highly excellent and competent witnesses who will confirm that what I say, as unbelievable as it may seem, is not only accurate, but has been and is currently experienced by many, many people across the nation! Mary Sykes is not alone and I am not crazy. What I relate to you, my dear reads is not fiction or imagination.
But what caused all this? No one said, but here is what happened last week.
On October 15, 2013, both parties were to file their Motions in Limine (pre trial motions) and exhibits. My clerk was suddenly out of the office, his father suddenly and unexpectedly died, so I filed by mail. I used the same exhibits I used in the Gloria-Scott-Yolanda-Kathie deposition and just added one more, a $60,000 tax lien that was found on [an entity’s] property. Hmm, this is indeed a serious ethical violation. So maybe that is a problem.
On Thursday, Oct. 18, 2013, I received a large box of documents from [an entity] which purported to contain 33 exhibits and 10 Motions in Limine to bar all my witnesses and exhibits–an excessive and abusive amount, if you ask me.
Curiously, when I look at what was actually included, there was in fact only ONE motion in limine to bar KDD, and the other motions, nos. 2 to 10 were missing!
So right away I call and fax [the entities] warning them–Houston, we have a problem.
No response. So Monday I call up the ARDC and talk to the clerk’s offices. Yes, she confirms the filing she has only has one motion in limine to bar KDD, and the rest are missing from her copy. I ask for her name, and I think she said [***}, so I ask her to spell it out and rather than do that she says I should speak to [an authority] and she puts me thru without answering!
[an entity] actually answers the phone, but it is weird. I identify myself and start to ask about the box of documents, but she starts excitedly demanding “how did I get through?” “you’re only supposed to go to voice mail” “I don’t want to talk to you because you always turn things around on me when I talk to you on the phone.” which is indeed very interesting because I have never spoken [this entity] on the phone before this, I only spoke to her once before at my deposition.
She must be a little excited today, I figure.
In any case, here is my fax to her:
and here is the only one Motion in Limine that I got from her and she never sent along the others:
and here is the order to reset the trial dates, mailed to me and no one had the decency to call me on Monday:
So let’s wait until Oct. 28, 2013 when we are supposed to have another conference call with the tribunal and see what happens.
