From KDD–very important case–$2.5 million verdict for atty whistleblower!

CHICAGO (AP) – A Cook County jury awarded $2.5 million to a former Chicago State University lawyer who claimed he was fired for reporting improprieties to the Illinois attorney general.
The Chicago Sun-Times reports ( ) 47-year-old James Crowley was awarded $2 million in damages and $480,000 in back pay. The jury also said CSU needed to reinstate Crowley to his position as senior legal counsel at the school.
Preston Pugh is an attorney for the school. He said they were considering an appeal and says Crowley wasn’t fired in retaliation. Instead, CSU says he was fired for misusing school money to pay for parking and directing scholarship money for friend, among other issues.
An Illinois Attorney General spokeswoman says the case may be the first whistleblower claim under Illinois’ decade-old ethics act.

Subject: Re: Next step – Save Mary Sykes!

In the 1940’s one of the radio shows commenced with the words: “the path of crime bears bitter fruit”
In reviewing this claim of JoAnne and discussing it with her it is abundantly clear that Mr. Larkin (and/or his surrogates) copied her blog with the only purpose of harassing her and attempting to intimidate her.  Certainly Larkin was and is aware that the Supreme Court of the United States made it abundantly clear that government cannot regulate content based speech.  To a limited extent it can regulate commercial speech, but, the call for an Honest Investigation of the elder cleaning cottage industry is protected by the core values of America and the First Amendment.   How therefore does Larkin and the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary commission download a single word from her blog (which is copy righted)?
Of course Larkin as an attorney who assumes the role of the moral compass of the legal profession is presumed to be familiar with the law and the limitations on government power that the Bill of Rights manifests.   He should be aware of the Citizens United case and the harsh words that define the broad scope of the First Amendment.   Why does he think that the Constitution does not apply to him?    Why does he think that copyrights protections do not apply to him and his minions?    People who act in derogation of the law cannot claim the ‘fair usage’ exception to the copyright laws!   Thus, Larkin is on the hook along with his cronies who slavishly *****.
As you are aware, Mary Sykes was removed from home and railroaded into a guardianship.   This guardianship was intended by the miscreants to be a kill of death.   Quickly they estranged her from her younger daughter and her siblings, removed her from her home and activities and enrolled her in an adult day care center.   This center was designed by **** to take active intelligent seniors who were living productive lives and convert them into zombies.  (Scott Evans employed his investigative skills honed by the United States of America and traced Mary down.   He reported this situation to the Court when Mr. Schmiedel bragged to the Court what wonderful progress Mary was making).
JoAnne and I have been calling for an HONEST complete, intelligent, and comprehensive investigation.   This call according to our miscreants (including certain governmental employees who are reported to be more than a little delinquent in filing ethics reports) is contrary to the ethics of the legal profession.   Ms. Farenga has copied hundreds of pages of JoAnne’s blog, the writings found in NASGA and Probate Sharks and forwarded the same to Larkin’s cronies.  (all of the whom receive substantial paychecks from the State of Illinois).   Farenga infringed repeatedly however, we recognize that the First Amendment protects the right to petition to the government (First Amendment).   This right exist even if you petition to the government to act in discriminatory and illegal form.  Farenga petitioned to the IARDC to deny JoAnne and me our First Amendment Rights!
We reason that Farenga copyright infringement is probably within the fair usage protection of the copyright law.   She therefore is not sued for her outrageous usurpation of the intellectual property rights that she obtained by her infringement.   An argument could be made that had the IARDC just adopted the intellectual property that Farenga mailed them in her successful efforts to violate our civil rights this suit would never have been filed; however, Larkin and the IARDC demonstrated once again their disrespect for American Core values by hiring an ‘expert’ to [provide software] do the actual infringing.   The IARDC under Larkin’s direction independently copied (infringed) the entire blog.    74 USCA 230 be damned!  Congress in enacting laws apparently has placed a clause in the law – this law applies to everyone except Jerome Larkin and those people protecting the cottage industry of elder cleansing.  [elderly cleansing has three elements 1) railroad a senior into a guardianship, 2) liberate the seniors life savings and other assets, and 3) effectuate an involuntary assisted suicide!
JoAnne and I have filed a civil rights suit against Larkin, Schmiedel, Farenga, and Stern.  You will find a copy on JoAnne’s blog or if you want a fax or an e-mail call Mr. larry Chambers at 847 600 3421 and he will furnish you with a copy.    This lawsuit is separate and sues only Larkin and his co-infringers.  Mr. Schmiedel and Mr. Stern according to our Rule 11 investigation appear to be innocent of this perfidy and thus as I have no interest in the blog or in the copyrights Mr. Schmiedel, Mr. Stern and I are not parties.   Ms. Farenga also is not a party as giving the ‘fair use’ exception an overbroad analysis we have applied it to her and she is also not a party.
What is so interesting is the fact that we begged Larkin and the guardian ad litems to join in us in our call for an INVESTIGATION.   You’d have thought that we were using ‘dirty’ words from the response.   Why do these people fear an Investigation!   Why is it so important to keep Mary Sykes hostage and isolated?    I am hoping that General Holder will do the appropriate investigation and we will get Mary freed while she still has time on Earth to enjoy her two elderly sisters and her younger daughter.

From Joanne;

I am NOT in agreement at all that Ms. Farenga can copy hundreds of pages of my blog ostensibly in an effort to “report me” to the IARDC for an investigation, when she is involved in a case 1) without jurisdiction–no evidence of service of summons or complaint upon Mary; 2) an improperly issued TRO that has lasted for 150+ ten day periods; 3) comingling of an estate with a trust where the trust held Mary’s home but the estate paid the mortgage; 4) an (unfair and grossly overreaching) attack on a settlement (Lumberman’s) which clearly belonged to Gloria for her home to be rebuilt and now it lies in waste and she is homeless and penniless whereas before Dec 7, 2009 Gloria had in excess of $250k in assets at her disposale; 5) cuffing Gloria to find out where these assets were and freeze them; 6) conveniently PS asserts he is owed over $200k in legal fees; the isolation of Mary from over half her friends and family; 7) placing her in a nursing home without court order; 8) no bond on the TRO…..  you get the picture.

I have the right to say those things.  Fair use is only a handful of sentences within a paragraph and for research, educational  and non commercial purposes, not pages and pages of downloading and copying to “report someone” with reams of text that is clearly mundane and innocuous.  I would not recommend doing that to anyone, as an IP lawyer.  Only take what you need and leave the rest.  If you don’t, you clearly risk suit for infringement.

But the IARDC comes after myself and Ken for calling for an investigation. Writing the authorities (so you can see that SOME attorneys are honest and care about justice and ethics) and we show you how to do this.

The IARDC claims calling for an investigation of a highly troubled case is unethical and is “overly critical” of some golden boy and girl attorneys.

I still see attorneys going into Judge Stuart’s private areas–despite the Greylord orders prohibiting that.

We call for an investigation, we are investigate and they want this blog shut down.

The miscreants violate Greylord orders not to go talk to the judges privately and cut their deals, and the IARDC looks the other way.

And you wonder why many call this the “Crook County” court system.

Ken and I are here to clean it up.  To point out directly where compliance is sorely lacking.  We want YOU, the public to have confidence in the court system again.  We want the Greylord orders enforced.  We want the IARDC to go after the miscreants and not the messengers.  We have other attorneys now and a network helping us.

If you are an attorney, please write me and start your own blog about fighting for truth and justice in the courtrooms.

I will not stop unless and until I hear no more complaints about gross violations of ethics that the IARDC and the courts are ignoring.

Subject: Fw: Response to Motion

Enclosed please find our response to the Motion to Dismiss our civil rights lawsuit based upon Mr. Larkin, the Administrator of the IARDC, acting in concert with Guardian ad litems Stern, Farenga, and Attorney Peter Schmiedel to attempt to silence our call for an HONEST COMPLETE AND COMPREHENSIVE INVESTIGATION of Elder abuse, financial exploitation of the elderly, and the final step in elder cleansing – assisted involuntary suicide.
Mr. Larkin’s defense is to try to distort the facts and characterize the complaint as a lawsuit against the State of Illinois.   Except for being intellectually dishonest and part of the continuing pattern of misrepresentation and distortion that has been so obvious in the various ‘elder cleansing cases’ and in the ‘cover up’ of the corruption that the participants in the elder cleansing cottage industry indulge the Memorandum that we respond to is an interesting document.
If the miscreants are required to respond to the allegations of the complaint rather than some mythical document of their own making, Larkin has a number of problems that he cannot over-come, to wit:
1) We did not sue the Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission.   They are not a party to the lawsuit.   Thus, any claim of Sovereign immunity has not basis – Larkin may be part of the political royalty, but in the eyes of the law he is entitled to no special status.
2) The Rule of Law is promulgated by the Supreme Court of the United States, not Larkin and the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission.
3) The Commission can only act within its delegated powers.   In Loving the Court just knocked the IRS in the head for exceeding its delegated powers!    Larkin and his lawyers are aware that he cannot employ powers that no body of government enjoys – i.e. the effort to limit, impede, or hinder the First Amendment Rights of citizens.   As a lawyer, Larkin should be aware that Circuit Court Judges (state judges) are elected.  Larkin should be aware that as elected officials government cannot protect Judges from critical comment or even abrasive and totally false verbal attacks outside of the actual Court proceedings.
4) the Commission is demonstrating a disrespect for the Court by citing cases that it knows are no longer the law, or as they did in Sawyer totally misrepresenting the ruling of the Court.
In reading the documents filed by Schmiedel and Larkin it is apparent that for undisclosed reasons they have a desperate stake in preserving the cottage industry of elder cleansing.  With the specter of Greylord being raised again it is very sad that history is repeating itself and the funds of the State of Illinois are not being spent to protect the public, but to protect those who are separating our most vulnerable citizens – the elderly and the disabled – from their liberty, their property, their civil rights and their human rights.
[the legal profession disgraced itself by its conduct in Operation Greylord and in these elderly cleansing cases it is allowing history to repeat itself.   For the record I am complying with 18 UsCA 4 in reporting the 18 USCA 371 actions by Larkin, Schmiedel, Stern and Farenga and forwarding copies of this Memorandum to law enforcement. ]
Ken Ditkowsky

From Joanne:

And in my usual fashion of ensuring openness and transparency to you, my reader, I will be publishing all the Pacer pleadings on this blog.  We have 18 so far and I hope to have them all up in a few minutes. The suit Ken and I filed is about our civil rights.  All I have done is run a blog.  It should be protected by the first amendment.  It is clearly political speech imploring the court system to do a better job because there are a ton of a ton of a ton of (valid) complaints out there.

Here is the current drive:

And I will add to it often as possible.

Transparency and accountability.

I can hardly wait for discovery to open.  I have a ton of a ton of questions about the IARDC.  For example, how is it that JL is sued personally, but he has THREE attorneys working for a state agency defending him with public funds?  Those funds belong to the public and not JL’s private fiefdom.  Also, if you take a look at the 2012 Annual Report you will note that the IARDC apparently has some sort of slush fund of some $21 million in “investments”.  What exactly are they investing in, and why isn’t this disclosed to any attorney that they call in on a disciplinary matter?  Who decides what to invest in, how are they managed?  Are there kickbacks we’ll never know about because the IARDC refuses to comply with the 2009 Illinois Ethics Act?  I have a whole lot of questions.  I have seen and smelled the fish around this one for a long time.



Looking for today…….

1) Donations of office space.

2) M.D.’s who are willing to go against the powers that be in probate and tell the truth that certain wards have ample cognitive abilities and prepare reports.

3) CPA’s who can verify accounting statements are true and accurate when miscreants are willing to lie, cheat and steal over them.

Please email me if you know of any reputable, honest M.D.’s or CPA’s willing to help and provide court testimony.

We need to band together to reintroduce honest, ethics and morality into the Probate Courts.

From the IARDC more pleadings and more rulings

Dear Readers;

After Gloria broke down and said that she did not want to provide any privileged or proprietary information, I asked the IARDC for a Protective Order, which are routinely granted, both in the TTAB and in the Federal District Courts.  Amazingly, when typically every case I’ve been involved in the parties just agree and submit an agreed Protective Order (this is actually what you are supposed to do at the TTAB), the IARDC denied the request for  a Protective Order!

This is the response from the IARDC.  In this Response Brief you will see that the ARDC never acknowledges that Gloria is a probate victim, should be given special treatment and is entitled to a Protective Order.  They go on about imaginary “violations of discovery” when in fact, this is normal and typical discovery for both sides.  If they can’t find a violation, they make one up and tell the tribunal it is true when in fact it is not.

I would be surprised by what they are doing, except when you investigate and look at their public records.  I am amazed that SCOI thinks no one knows they are fostering, aiding and abetting such an obvious CYA agency–in fact an agency that denies it is a state agency at all and when you ask them about Ethics reporting and salary publishing, they claim to be a private enterprise!

But as you know, I publish all, and I publish the truth, so look for yourself.


The Reponse from the IARDC:

The Order from the IARDC denying my (most reasonable and customary) Request for a Protective Order.

In dozens and dozens of cases, I have never had 1) a litigant deny the need for  a Proective Order and 2) balk at entering into one where proprietary information is involved.

If anyone can explain this, plmk because I am dumbfounded.

As the “Table of Torts” or “Table of Troubles for court”, the behavior by the Probate Court is one continuing series of events never before seen by many, many long practicing attorneys and I don’t mean this in a good way.  It’s despicable that this should happen in the US.


And the pleading in the IARDC proceeding are going the same way.

This is my complete ARDC pleadings drive of everything scanned in and saved.

I dedicate it’s extraordinary strangeness to the public for your review and consideration:

I will also post this link under ARDC pleadings

You will notice the IARDC does not do the same.  It does not share. It denies transparency and accountability.



From Gloria Sykes, her need for live Testimony on her side of the story

This is from Gloria today regarding her side of the story

Subject: Re: I’m being banned from testifying?  Or are they making it as difficult as possible?

I will be doing a LIVE testimony and people will be able to call in and ask questions after the formal testimony given. I will provide everybody with date and time- including the ARDC and Tribunal.

In America no person or animal should be tortured, deprived or otherwise handcuffed without due process and in particular by the courts meant to find justice no matter how great she hides.

My father was a vet too and although his appointments have been hero secret he had in his possession three medals if which two had to do with ‘sharp shooting’  I had found these metals and the papers which Toerpe found and destroyed as she stole and destroyed all of the writings, police reports and war related material my father saved and gave to me to write a book. These documents were kept in the attic in daddy’s black chest which Kathie found at Debby’s garage sale brought there by Toerpe.

Stealing memories and data of lived ones is a true sign of a sociopath who lives with delusions of grandeur and greed as my sister Carolyn Toerpe. That Judge Maureen Connors now on the appellate bench and Jane Louise Stuart has so eagerly empowered her is a reminder of Hitler who at a word hundreds of his army marched the elderly, disabled and a children into showers of toxic gas where they took their last breaths and then the same Hitler subordinates dragged the bodies into ditches that became the death beds so famously portrayed in photographs now hung at the Holocaust museum.   What is sad is that prior to the gas chambers Dr. Schmiedel injected the elderly, disabled, and young with highly toxic drugs where death was slow and painful. Dr, Schmiedel’s T-IV plan was a disaster to Hitler because it took too long to kill. It is also well known that the gold was removed from the teeth of the elderly and disabled prior to death but before all if their valuables were taken and bestowed on Hitler as gifts. The common name Schmiedel has one origin.

Attorney Schmiedel has learned much from his German origin and it is no wonder Fischel and Kahn is associated with Schmiedel.  There was simply no money in working for the non profit as he once did to right wrongs : his years with the Office of Public Guardian taught him well and Adam Stern and I believe judge ***** worked under Schmiedel.

Schmiedel is a war criminal by name and is now practicing in the probate courts and a person of the LIE. My parents survived the depression and built a good life for themselves and their family only for Schmiedel and company to steal all that was good and promising for his personal financial gain.

I will announce the date and time of my LIVE testimony in a week.

My prayers and live to all who suffered and are suffering because if People of the LIE in what Gail and I named the American Holocaust  in 2010 when we looked up and read Hitters t-4 plan (or maybe it was t-3) founded by and fulfilled by Dr. Schmiedel.

From Wiki: Hitler’s T4 program

Action T4
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This poster (from around 1938) reads: “60,000 Reichsmark is what this person suffering from a hereditary defect costs the People’s community during his lifetime. Fellow citizen, that is your money too. Read ‘[A] New People’, the monthly magazine of the Bureau for Race Politics of the NSDAP.”

Action T4 (German: Aktion T4, pronounced [ak?tsi?o?n te? fi??]) was the name used after World War II[1] for Nazi Germany’s “euthanasia programme” during which physicians murdered thousands of people who were “judged incurably sick, by critical medical examination”.[2] The programme officially ran from September 1939[3][4] to August 1941, and it continued unofficially[5] until the end of the Nazi regime in 1945.[6]

During the official stage of Action T4, 70,273 people were killed at various extermination centres located at psychiatric hospitals.[7] Evidence was revealed at the Nuremberg Trials that German and Austrian physicians continued the euthanization of patients after October 1941, and that a total of about 275,000 people were murdered under T4.[8] Based on files recovered after 1990, 21st century research provides evidence that at least 200,000 physically or mentally handicapped people were killed in gas chambers, by medication, or deliberate starvation between 1939 and 1945.[9]

see full article on Aktion T4 at and see the amazing poster of how Germany sought to end the lives of 60,000+ disableds, crippleds and undesirables that “cost too much”–after all, it’s YOUR money too!

Copyright infringement and the IARDC

On of the issues in my case is the massive copyright infringment of hundred of pages of my blog.

So, of interest is the following case:

In this particular case, Princeton Review had to pay $52,000 for its continued use of copyrighted SAT test questions and agree to a license agreement.  That’s after the defendant allegedly spent $600k in attorneys fees.  In addition, it’s founder, Mr. Katzman is banned from testing sites for 2 years since he allegedly took tests only with the intent to copy them and use them in his own buiness.

Another interesting case is Castle Rock Entertainment Inc. v. Carol Publishing Group, 150 F.3d 132 (2nd Cir. 1998), was a U.S. copyright infringement case involving the popular American sitcom Seinfeld. Some U.S. copyright law courses use the case to illustrate modern application of the fair use doctrine. The United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit upheld a lower court’s summary judgment that the defendant had committed copyright infringement. The decision is noteworthy for classifying Seinfeld trivia not as unprotected facts, but as protectable expression. The court also rejected the defendant’s fair use defense finding that any transformative purpose possessed in the derivative work was “slight to non-existent” under the Supreme Court ruling in Campbell v. Acuff-Rose Music, Inc., 510 U.S. 569 (1994). (from Wiki article)

From Law360: a college test company in Texas had to pay the SAT people $1 million to settle an infringement suit.

Apparently test questions are a hot bed of litigation.  Just taking some of those questions with permission or a license agreement can get a company into some real hot water.  So the real question is, why do these companies take such as risk? Many are online companies, but you would think they would find a online website (like mine) that explains JUST SAY NO TO COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT.


In yet another case,

What is the Elder Justice Act of 2010?

The Elder Justice Act of 2010 was passed by Congress and signed into law by Pres. Obama in 2010.  It provides for a wide range of programs to protect elders after it was noted that 11% of seniors over age 60 were subject to some form of abuse each year.

The National Center of Elder Abuse defines elder abuse as “any knowing, intended or careless act that causes harm or serious risk of harm to an older person – physically, mentally, emotionally, or financially.” 

It is part of the Affordable Care Act and provides federal resources to “prevent, detect, treat, understand, intervene in and, where appropriate, prosecute elder abuse, neglect and exploitation.”

For more information on the Elder Justice Act, please refer to the following publications:

From Ken Ditkowsky — 60 minutes exposes Russian government corruption

And he notes the erie parallels to the elder cleansing situation here:

It is an excellent program explaining how government officials confiscated corporate ownership documents of Bill Browder, changed them  to their own and then proceeded to take income without paying taxes.  Next thing, Bill Browder and his staff are arrested, tortured and one is even murdered in a Russian jail.

Many of the instances of forging documents, hiding money, courts that don’t care and look the other way have parallels right here in the US.

Bill Browder now works in London to investigate and expose the corruption on his website.

After making his money, he has the financial resources to effectively fight, investigate and expose.  There is a warrant for his arrest, death threats and fear, he continues to expose the corruption in a hopes to eliminate it.

You go, Bill Brower!

And 60 minutes, you need a few cases, we’ve got them for you.

America gained its success by being a no-holds barred Nation wherein we wore our heart, our prejudices, our vanity, and our stupidity all on our sleeve and right out in the open.  It was a ‘love me, love my dog’ and if you did not like – tough turkey.
The immigrants who came to America bought into the scenario and joined in the politically incorrect melee.   We as a Nation were uncouth!    Today, the same bias exists except we are two faced and just as brutal as before, but we mask it with more hypocrisy.    Mr. Amu, the actions Mr. Larkin and the IARDC and their reports do a poor job in masking the racial bias manifest.   You are reacting to it as any American immigrant by spitting in Larkin’s face by telling him and his cronies that you are an African.
Like HELL!   you are an American!   Yes, you have an heritage that takes you back to somewhere in Africa, but, you are one of us!    That fact you cannot get away from and like or not when push comes to shove the legacy that you provide your children is the same as is provided to mine.   I want my children to grow up in an America that I can be proud of, not the America of the miscreants!
The America we decree to our children must not prey on the elderly, prey on the helpless, and it must not strip itself of honor, dignity, and our core values.   Our America cannot remain silent for a minute when public institutions exhibit racism, sexism, or dishonor.  I urge you to accept Bev Cooper’s offer and speak out today, tomorrow, Wednesday and everyday for the principles that you I and our brothers (including our sisters) stand for.    The fact that Jerome Larkin does not agree with them should not deter you in the slightest!   He is not your friend and he has demonstrated that he does not respect Rule of Law.   Lets revive our heritage and give the bad guys their due in spades, doubled and redoubled.  (yes I know that statement is not politically correct! – who give a damn)

An open letter to Mr. Lanre Amu–stand up proud and report those who overlook, engage and promote unethical and immoral behavior in the courts!

Dear Readers;

This morning, Mr. Amu provide Ken Ditkowsky with a copy of his brief to the Ill. Supreme Court.  Atty Ditkowsky expressed his disappointment that Mr. Amu didn’t mention the most important right he has — and that is to unfettered non commercial speech under the First Amendment to the US constitution.  (Sawyer, Alvarez, Citizen’s United, etc.)  Apparently some people are telling him that if he “lays low”, goes along with the program, shuts up and does not mention “corruption” or the fact his judges have public records indicating reasons for their bias, or further investigate the root cause of the corruption which he alleges–all will be forgiven.

Then Mr. Amu says he will not go on the cable TV show “Cooper’s Corner” because it would further inflame his situation with the IARDC.

NOT.  This is the road to perdition.  The slippery slope. The wedge with the edge. It’s when the devil comes to you directly and says “do what I say and I’ll fix everything for you, I have the ‘easy’ button.”

The devil does not.  If he asks to you look the other way, do not speak, do not tell on miscreants and scallywags, it IS the road to perdition for sure.

You will note that JL, MS, SO, MG, LB, SA, etc. are NOT your friends.  In my case they have gone out of the way to tamper with witnesses and obstruct justice (Gloria and her service dog, Justine Sia Rosa and her testimony).  Ken and I are suing JL, AS, CF and PS for gross violations of our civil rights.  The IARDC is a slavish copyright infringer.  They can cite no case for “fair use” in litigation.  That is because the first amendment will run up head on with copyright laws.



Dear Lanre

I agree wholeheartedly with Ken.  You got some very, very bad advice where ever it came from.  You will note that in my trial I am using it as a showcase that the Sykes case was fixed and tied in, that there is a system of corruption that is ignored and even CYA by the IARDC, and right on up the ladder, that Gloria, Kathie, Scott and Yolanda will testify the case is filled with problems and issues and Mary was railroaded (no service, no discovery, ignoring Gloria’s POA and just issuing an order trashing it contrary to the ILPA sec. 45/2 which requires notice, a hearing and findings).

why are you shying away from the media anyway?  you are a smart, handsome, well spoken attorney and if you get on that show you will show the world you are NOT a nut case.

it would be one thing for you to go on the show DURING your trial to TALK about some witnesses when others still haven’t testified, but even then THE IARDC HAS NO RIGHT AND CANNOT CONSIDER YOUR MEDIA ENDEAVORS TO CLEAR YOUR GOOD NAME.

There are 2 amazing and important avenues of justice in this country.  One is the court system.  In your case, the IARDC has woefully failed you.  It was a kangaroo court making the decision ipso facto you are a liar and all the judges are saints.  What utter nonsense.  The second one is a free and open press.  Media can often put pressure on crooked govt officials to stop the nonsense.

And I don’t know who told you that advice (lay low, don’t tell, sweep the dirt under the rug), and perhaps you will not reveal it, but either the person is naive, young or stupid and should not be giving any sort of advice about IARDC proceedings OR HE IS A PLANT!

Both Ken and I have been “planted”.  That means a “nice attorney” will show up at our door or in our email box and tell me, you know if you only complied (take down the blog, shut up, stop emailing your elected politicians, the FBI, the states attorney, etc.–all the people I in fact have a duty to report to as an attorney), perhaps the IARDC will take pity on you and eventually give you your license back.

So that means I am to turn my back on corruption and harm to the disableds and elderly and poor?  Are they kidding?  Mestopheles has enough souls, kindly thank you very much.

Don’t you see how they are leading you into perdition?

You HAVE to report to the authorities–Misprison of Felony 18 USC 4 provides you have to report corruption.  As an Attorney, you should be pulling public and non public records and consulting with a good PI to investigate the corruption and get rid of it.  You should ask for a new trial based upon these judges are frauds and scallywags and their dirt was hidden and it took you awhile to find it.

If you don’t have a spine, take out a loan and get one, is my advice.

You do not have the right to be stupid in this lifetime (I’m sure you can find a biblical quote for that).  All the great leaders in the bible stood up to corruption–Ruth, David (as in the Goliath story).  He got his stones and threw them back.  The truth is the writing on the wall (OT) and the writing in the sand (Mary Magadalene was a saint and not a sinner and was wrongfully accused of adultery when a Roman soldier courted her and it turns out he had a wife and 3 kids in Rome.  The Mrs. wrote a letter to his commander so what did they try to do?  stone HER and not HIM.  It was not MM’s fault, she did not know.  Yeshua stopped that nonsense with the famous “writing in the sand.”)  All the heroes and heroines of the bible had one thing in common–they repeatedly stood up to corruption.  And they NEVER hid the fact they were going to expose it and eliminate it.  The three men in the fire survived their ordeal and you will too.  Ken and I will and we get to go back with all our tail feathers.  Don’t be a  wuss.

I know you have strong faith and convictions to do truth and justice.  You need to do prayer and meditation to get your answer and what I’m hearing right now is YOU NEED TO GO FOR IT!  Go full bore, media, blogging, your church groups for support–everywhere.  Beat the bushes and drum the drums.  Don’t hide that light of yours someplace to appease the IARDC and the Crook County Court system.

First step, do Ken and Bev’s show.  Go look at mine and Ken’s on YouTube

Bev and Ken are saints to do this week after week after week.

I also have disks for you. Bev, can you send Mr. Lanre as many disks as you can find of myself and Ken on your show?

Use what you can to fight this.  Doing so after the fact will weaken your position.

I send you all my best.  We are in this together.  WE ARE A formidable force when we band together.  My blog has 45,000 hits so far, Probate Sharks gets 70,000 per year, NASGA gets 140,000 and Janet Phelan just announced an amazing quarter million per post and she is actively posting on a regular basis statements about myself and Ken.  Gloria does protests outside the Daley Center and the probate court and attys know it and have seen it.

The secret is out.  The Code of Silence talked about in the Greylord books is gone.  We are now discussing billboards, print and other media ads, John Wyman has a book about all this corruption, Gloria is soon to finish a book/movie/documentary and is going to California momentarily.

The devil is a sexy, lusty temptress and her pretty red lips are whispering in your ear “don’t tell, don’t be mean to my friends, I will satisfy your desires.”  Don’t go lusting after that road.  It’s the wrong path.  Next thing you find, your wallet is gone, your wife and family hate you, you have a disease and it hurts to pee!

Subject: Fw: WestlawNext – Jones v. R.R. Donnelley & Sons Co.

Apparently the Supreme Court of the United States decisions are a nuisance to Stern, Farenga, Schmeidel.    The attached case holds that civil rights suits are governed by a 4 year Federal Statute of Limitations not the shortest State Statute.   In addition please note:
1. Legal Standard for Rule 12(b)(6) and Statute of Limitations
123 A defendant may raise the affirmative defense of statute of limitations via a Rule 12(b)(6) motion when the facts that give rise to the defense are clear from the face of the complaint. Smith–Haynie v. District of Columbia, 155 F.3d 575, 578 (D.C.Cir.1998). Because statute of limitations issues often depend on contested questions of fact, however, the court should hesitate to dismiss a complaint on statute of limitations grounds based solely on the face of the complaint. Firestone v. Firestone, 76 F.3d 1205, 1209 (D.C.Cir.1996). Rather, the court should grant a motion to dismiss only if the complaint on its face is conclusively time barred. Id.; Doe v. Dep’t of Justice, 753 F.2d 1092, 1115 (D.C.Cir.1985). If “no reasonable person could disagree on the date” on which the cause of action accrued, the court may dismiss a claim on statute of limitations grounds. Smith v. Brown & Williamson Tobacco Corp., 3 F.Supp.2d 1473, 1475 (D.D.C.1998) (citing Kuwait Airways Corp. v. Am. Sec. Bank, N.A., 890 F.2d 456, 463 n. 11 (D.C.Cir.1989)).   Lewis v. Bayh, 577 F. Supp. 2d 47, 51 (D.D.C. 2008)
2.We thus hold that the Illinois five-year statute of limitations applies to statutory claims brought under the Civil Rights Acts. Jones v. Jones, 410 F.2d 365 (7th Cir. 1969), cert. denied, 396 U.S. 1013, 90 S.Ct. 547, 24 L.Ed.2d 505 (1970), is hereby overruled.   Beard v. Robinson, 563 F.2d 331, 338 (7th Cir. 1977)
 3.  Holdings: The Supreme Court, Justice Stevens, held that:
1 cause of action is governed by federal “catch-all” four-year statute of limitations if the claim was made possible by a post–1990 enactment, and
2 employees’ hostile work environment, wrongful termination, and failure-to-transfer claims were governed by federal “catch-all” limitations period.   Jones v. R.R. Donnelley & Sons Co., 541 U.S. 369, 124 S. Ct. 1836, 158 L. Ed. 2d 645 (2004)

From Ken Ditkowsky

In 1933 a funny looking no-account rose to power in Germany and by 1936 had International acceptance was a ‘world leader.’    In Russia a similar situation was occurring.  The world was fully informed of what was going to be tagged as the Holocaust, but, nothing was done.  Today, many countries exist with hostile neighbors on all sides and our Department of State overlooks hostile acts.   Americans watch, moan a bit, and contribute money to the very people who promulgate the outrage [munitions dealers].

Elder cleansing is not a new scenario.   The Bible reports incidents, do you think that our Churches do not know that some of their congregants are victims or family members of victims?   do you think that the ACLU is not aware of cases like Mary Sykes/Alice Gore etc?   Bev Cooper, Janet Phelan, Gloria Sykes, JoAnne Denison and many others have been screaming from the roof tops to law enforcement and others concerning the new American Holocaust.   An advertisement in a newspaper is talking to same dead audience that is refusing to go into a pro-active mode to protect their own individual First, Fifth, and Fourteenth Amendment Rights.
What did it take to get public interest in the NSA situation?    What is it taking to get public interest in the IRS targeting of conservative groups?    What is it taking *****.     Going back to 1936 – what did it take to get public interest in the wholesale killing of innocent civilians?
If I had the answer I would provide it.    That does not mean that your idea does not have merit and should not discussed; however, we need a pro-active approach with some sex appeal.  JoAnne and I have filed a Federal Civil Rights lawsuit against the two guardians, the administration of the Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission of Illinois and the attorney for the miscreant plenary guardian in the Sykes case.    Previously Gloria filed an Americans with Disabilities case in Federal court alleging that these same defendants had deprived Mary Sykes of a citizens access to the Courts.  (The case was unsuccessful).    JoAnne and I are seeking to protect our parochial civil rights from the use by the miscreants of the ARDC to punish us for speaking out.   Many of us have written to elected officials and agencies such as the Justice Department and the Department of the Treasury.
We have an election coming up in November in which the stakes are very high for a bunch of public officials who would like to get re-elected.   In Illinois we have Senator Durbin.   Senator Durbin is famous for receiving a complaint from a citizen and his office sending a copy of a speech that he allegedly gave in Congress.   When I wrote him about Mary Sykes I got a copy of a speech he gave on Social Security.    Imagine what pro-active message we would send if we could defeat Durbin’s re-election bid.  Or on the other hand, if we could get Durbin to lead the fight for an HONEST complete, intelligent, and comprehensive investigation of these elder cleansing cases.   
This is not partisan political issue.   Senator Durbin could have one or more of our miscreants in his future!!   He could wind up lying in his own urine in a ***** nursing home.   The irony is the fact that everyone of us (including the miscreants themselves) could wind up in a ‘hell hole’ nursing home with one or more of the miscreants as a guardian to be elder cleansed! 
the foregoing notwithstanding it is very clear that Mr. Snowdon is not interested in leaking that information and the NSA is not monitoring our e-mails.  The request that we make is very modest – all we want is an HONEST intelligent, complete and comprehensive investigation!   The reaction is amazing.  The IARDC wants to suspend my license for four years for making such a suggestion and God knows what punishment they desire for JoAnne for publishing a blog that contains the suggestion of an HONEST complete and comprehensive investigation.

From Linda Kincaid — Info on World Conference on Guardianships

see below:

The World Congress on Adult Guardianship will be held in Washington DC, May 28-30.  This event is the most important meeting this year for advocates such as ourselves.
The World Congress will discuss the both problems and solutions in guardianship.  There will be sessions on person centered care and the move from surrogate decision-making toward supported decision-making.  There will be discussion of rights in guardianship and recommendations for oversight of guardians.
There is a LOT we can learn and bring back to our communities.  We may have opportunities to share our own experiences and seek guidance from leaders in the field.
Bring an open mind and plenty of paper for taking notes.  Details in the attached brochure.

From Gloria–another important file portion missing!

see below, and if you know of the whereabouts of this file, please let Gloria know.

I suggested she contact the “help desk” and see if she can get it scanned in there and back online. I would do it for her, but I know she is fearful of all attorneys after my (bogus) disqualification and her subsequent treatment by them.

 Subject: Re: Illinois General Assembly – Full Text of HB4216
 The entire file from the petition for an order if protection June 9,  2009 is gone from the domestic relations court and never copied and or fully transferred to the probate court.
 I filed a petition for protective order against Carolyn Toerpe and Fred Toerpe in March/Feb of 2012 and The Toerpe’s showed up with an attorney in the Domestic Relations Court and got it transferred to the probate case 2008 p 4585 and I filed copies of the PO to be heard and no files are with  the probate court or the domestic relations court. Stuart ignored the filings. This was filed after the Toerpe’s pushed and shoved me during the first attempt for me to move out my property.
 The petition for an order of protection against Fred Toerpe filed at the Niles Courthouse after he beat me up in and about April 2012 was denied and now also missing from the files.
 And finally the criminal complaint against Fred Toerpe filed by the Cook County States Attorneys office and to be heard march 11, 2013 is listed but with no case number and the files with the complaint I signed and with police reports are missing in its entirety. That the case was never given a case number and I was shuffled off to sit in the wrong courtroom and Toerpe’s representation was a recent Cook County states attorney who just left the CCSA office, and the CCSA said I was not in court and again was said to be transferred to the probate division. That all these public records and case filings are missing and point to The Toerpe’s who are holding my mother hostage under a court sanctioned guardianship should be of serious interest as the destruction of said documents are a felony.
 And you JD want to know why what I sent is important which draws me to the conclusion you simply don’t get it!!!
 These people including the court have destroyed court files which are public documents that point directly to Carolyn Toerpe’s criminal behavior as a disreputable person who upon an agreed order appointing her guardian of my mother is in violation of the Probate act and law enforcement cares little…
 That I’ve been accused of everything and every wrong doing Toerpe perpetrated including destroying the files should be of interest to the Tribunal that the missing records evidence Toerpe is a dangerous person who is protected by the courts, the states attorneys office and the IARDC. .

50 ILCS 205/4   from Ch. 116, par. 43.104

Another great article on the Situation in Probate, Cook County from a wonderful reporter

Please google :”no country for old men probate article” and scroll down.

This blog makes inroads to the fact that guardianships far too many times ARE NOT WORKING.  They drain estates, they stir up troubles in families for fees from persons tied into the system, and they subject to just as many abuses than if the person had been let alone.  The Sykes case is a classic example of railroading, no jurisdiction, sisters not served, a $272k bank account of Gloria’s frozen under a TRO lasting for 150 ten day terms, a $400k home in Norwood Park laid to waste for 4 years, one sister evicting another sister from the family home, it now appears the $272 bank account will mostly go to Schmeidel who has a $200k plus legal bill on the estate.  Mary will go to a nursing home, even though her POA was summarily invalidated without due process, briefings and a hearing and findings.

I have updated my famous table of “torts”, but the IARDC doesn’t like the words “corruption”, “tort” or whatever so now it will be a table of pain, woes and agonies–for Gloria.

Gloria, Kathie Baken, Scott Evans and Yolanda Bakken have their side of the story and this blog has the right to publish that.  The miscreants (whom ever they are–there has been no investigation, but we know AS, CF and PS never told the court the appointed plenary guardian never drilled out the safe deposit box in April 2010)

The GAL’s and PS have told their story on the transcripts published on this blog. They are welcome to provide this blog with their comments, observations and more of their side of the story, but their side of the story is fairly present on the transcripts.

It’s been a very tough road for Gloria, Yolanda, Scott and Kathie. Let’s keep them in our thoughts and prayers

Immediate Funding/Office Space Needed for our new charity–Justice4 Every1, NFP

Please call your friends today and see if you can find me office space.  I need it reasonably priced, and the landlord must be flexible on rent OR in need of legal or other services in exchange (I teach violin, keyboard and crocheting).

While I am busy helping numerous people per day, I do need office space to take on pro bono clients and put together their packets for the authorities and refer them to local counsel.

The work we do is important and it fights the troubles, issues and problems (TIPS) in probate!

I now have a staff of 5 people I would like to thank–Alyece Russell, Jim Simms, Michael Nofsinger and Ginny Johnson of Ginny O’s who are also working hard with me to get funding, help various people with their probate and TIPS problems, and provide support and strength for these often long and expensive battles.

So please contact your Chicago Realtor and Broker friends today and we will scour the neighborhoods for office space which is a better fit for me today!


From Tim Lahrman, why is the process so different in Probate?

Sent: Feb 6, 2014 11:56 AM
Subject: Re: let me suggest: if there are any Judges that think the elder cleansing cases are violating the principle stated in this case


in the administration and supervision of a guardianship, the judge is performing a ministerial duty and function — supervising the judges own agent.
may I also suggest that judges are not free to expand the defined class of persons intended to be served by the guardianship statutes, and do so by judicial fiat —  but it is being done all the time by these judges that believe simply being old is good enough reason to appoint a guardian.
one last thing I want to point out here — the civil practice of law —- the procedure by which a court views the process — as civil law is practiced routinely and customarily —- as applied to guardianship —– is unconstitutional because the policies, practices and procedures create a unconstitutional presumption of incompetence/incapacity …….  think about,
a petition is filed —–
in normal practice an attorney would likely file a motion to dismiss —– the court would then read the petition as presumptively true
and the burden would then be on the proposed ward to stop the machine —-  except that the proposed ward is already presumed to be incompetent/incapacitated/disabled.
add to this the fact the ward will MORE THAN LIKELY NEVER have access to a review and appeal process —–
and guardianship is a proving ground for fraud ….
From Tim Lahrman, a probate victim himself, and one who is now dedicated to helping others, he hears these stories all the time, as I do.
And I have to agree with Tim.  Normal court procedure is a Complaint, followed by strenuous Motions to Dismiss, briefing schedules, hearings, then discovery, then depositions, then expert discovery and depositions, then trial on the merits.
I would have to say this process is skipped in probate about 90% of the time, and yet the process completely strips away human rights and liberties.

 Special Prosecutor Dan Webb wrote a report in which he disclosed serious favoritism that occurred with Mayor Daley’s nephew was involved in the death of another individual.   The nephew pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter.    Almost Daily the media is drawing conclusions concerning the transaction that suggest that we have two classes of people in Cook County, i.e. the political royals and the rest of us.
Gloria Sykes, Bev and Ken Cooper, the two Mary’s, John Wyman, Steven Schwartz and dozens of others have written to the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission concerning the ‘railroading’ exploitation, and deprivation of liberties of senior citizens (elder cleansing) by a small group of lawyers and judges.   Like the infamy that Special Prosecutor Webb disclosed the very people who are paid substantial public money to protect the public and the concept of equal protection of the law are totally disinterested when the political royals are involved.
Mary Sykes was not on a drinking spree on Rush Street!   She and the other victims of elder cleansings were totally innocent.   Mary was using the Courts to seek a protective order from the very person who was appointed her plenary guardian.   So obscene is the perfidy that is disclosed in the Sykes case 09 P 45 85 (Circuit Court of Cook County) that to ‘cover up’ the actions of the miscreants that Mary’s daughter was chained right in the court house and intimidated with threats of terrible consequences unless she *****.  Attorneys who were not scared off with threats (such as JoAnne Denison and myself) are being prosecuted for doing such terrible things as calling for an HONEST complete and comprehensive investigation of the elder cleansings and the fact that citizen complaints are not investigated as the list of victims grows.
It may not be good press to make public the fact that dozens of senior citizens across the United States are being herded into abusive guardianships and denied their basic liberties as they are stripped of their savings for the benefit of a few miscreant “judicial officials”
The drain of the treasury continues daily to the detriment of the public.

Some Judges just need an award for outstanding efforts–Here comes “Bully on the Bench”

BULLY ON THE BENCH,  a weekly activist show heard around the world….

Every week we want to hear about a Bully-On-The-Bench ™ .  The “winning” Bully will be awarded a certificate suitable for framing. (We will not provide frames; but what judge would not be proud to display such a distinguished award on their “I love me wall”.)  We would like to personally award the certificate in a photo op; but as those of us on the Cook County “judicial terrorist watch list” know, the odds of doing that more than once will probably result in false criminal charges.


Join us on the Radio every Friday from 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM.  So far the radio station is very pleased with our listener base and our callers.  (Last week we had listeners from the Czech Republic and Germany – don’t ask me why, guess they are just radicals.)  We need you to tune in and call to keep the show going.  I know they have us set up for Facebook and probably those other social media things.  (I need to really learn all that stuff.)  And I will let you know as I know.

Just in — Hurray for Dorothy Brown–efiling in Probate!

Let’s give the clerk 10 gold stars for non corruption today!

There is absolutely nothing more assuring and satisfying that e-filing!  It’s a huge step in the right direction.

Now we just have to get the documents loaded up on the internet for the public to view and download for a RESONABLE COST, similar to Pacer (the system used in Federal Court across the nation) for 8 cents per page, but I guess that can wait for next month.

We have demanded this, and it has come.  Thanks so much to the Clerk and Presiding Judge.  Now you can demand that they be put online and printed out for 8 cents per page–just like Pacer.

The public owns these documents and not Cook County.  We deserve immediate and reasonable access to all court filings and we should insist on just that!

The Clerk of the Circuit Court of Cook County launched eFiling in the Probate Division on Wednesday, January 29th bringing the this service to six out of the seven civil case types in the Cook County Circuit Court.

eFiling is now available in the Child Support, Chancery, Civil, Domestic Relations, Law and Probate Divisions.

The incident that you are describing is surreal.   Unfortunately it fits the pattern of most of the ‘elder cleansing’ cases.   It also fits the pattern that the Illinois legislature and that of every single State of the Union seeks to eliminate.
Once again I invite law enforcement to not believe a single word that is written by you or by me.   Do an independent intelligent HONEST complete and comprehensive investigation.   If you find that the statements that we make have credibility then we pray that you (law enforcement) impanel and grand jury and being the miscreants to the Bar of justice.   As our government is going broke over health care costs – the miscreants should be requested to pay back to the government every single penny that they obtained for the mistreatment of the very people who they are licensed to help.    
As outrageous conduct such as you describe cannot exist without 18 USCA 371 violations by attorneys you should report the attorneys to the local disciplinary commission and the judges who aid and abet this action to the local Judicial Inquiry Boards.  
The Illinois model (755 ILCS 5/11a – 1 et seq) guardianship statute is in force in most of the States of the Union.  Each legislature has made it clear that guardianship is not a sentence of death.  The guardianship is supposed to supply to the disabled person the help that he cannot furnish himself ( 11a – 3(b))    Over-reaching is prohibited and clearly prohibited; however, in cases like Sykes and Gore we see large estates ravaged and the alleged disabled stripped of his/her humanity, liberty, property and human rights.  Reports to law enforcement to comply with 18 USCA 4 and to protect the rights Congress has required government to protect pursuant 42 USCA 1983 are not protected.
The watchdog commissions over lawyers and judges are the first line of defense as we cannot have our own local national socialists and Stalinists  use the authority of Buck vs. Bell to create a holocaust of senior citizens.  (Maybe Mr. Larkin the administrator of the Attorney Registration and Disciplinary commission can help you in referring you to the people in your state who are dedicated to the defense of the Bill of Rights!)

In the Sykes case, Gloria was not present in court, and PS got an Order issued regarding her TRO.

However, it did not comply with the Rules of Court:

e. Under Illinois and federal law (735 ILCS 5/11-101 and FRCP 65(b)) any order granting an ex parte TRO must:
i. be endorsed with the date and hour of signing
ii. be filed immediately in the clerk’s office
iii. define the injury and state why it is irreparable
iv. explain why no notice was given
v. expire by its own terms, not to exceed 10 days
vi. set the motion for a preliminary injunction for hearing at the earliest possible time

and what happened was, Gloria showed up on or about Mar 18, 2011 and was sandbagged and handcuffed to a chair in Judge Stuart’s ante room for THREE HOURS.

Thank you.
Unfortunately there is no shortage of cases.  These cases are important and are fuel that keeps elder cleansing alive, but, they are all distractions – except to the victims, their families and the miscreants who obtain a few dollars.
The problem is that there are levels of corruptors.   At the bottom we have the bottom feeders.  In the Sykes case we have our miscreant friends.  The next level up consists of friendly judges, regulators, and assorted attorney who would sell their souls for a buck.   These individuals are visible and the ones who get sued and are expendable.   Mr. Stern as an example is a pawn.   Everyone but he is fully aware of it.    (Yes, if he…
