Subject: Formal Complaint against Jerome Larkin, Administrator of the IARDC

After reading the Seth Gillman article in Crains and the Sun-times it became very clear meaningful health care is not possible unless that is a concerted effort by members of the public to dissect out the cancer that is eating away at our society.    Elder cleansing is not only here to stay, but has entrenched itself so firmly that the operators of this illegal cottage industry are openly and notoriously intimidating lawyers to keep silent.

As Jerome Larkin has gone to such extreme lengths to try to silence me – a four year suspension from the practice of law for writing to the Attorney General of the United States complaining that a 90 year old widow was being elder cleansed by some miscreant lawyers – it is time for all of us who want to avoid being victims to stand up be counted.    I therefore am filing a formal complaint against Larkin as is my right as a citizen.     The document that was faxed this morning to the IARDC states:

Formal Complaint

re: Jerome Larkin, Administrator, ARDC

Date:  May 28, 2014

To:   Law Enforcement

Subject:  Obstruction of Justice by Mr. Larkin and the IARDC i.e.  Punishing attorneys for compliance with 18 USCA 4.

From:   Kenneth Ditkowsky 5940 W. Touhy Ave, Niles, Illinois 60714,

Please be advised of the following facts:

18 USCA 4 states:

“Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.”  18 U.S.C.A. § 4 (West)

On or about April 2010, I was engaged to investigate the ‘railroading’ of a senior citizen – Mary Sykes into a guardianship.     My investigation discovered that 755 ILCS 5/11a – 10 the jurisdictional authorization for the guardianship act had not been complied.    In particular, a process required by said 11a – 10 had not been served upon Sykes.    No timely service had occurred.    Close relatives required to be disclosed and timely served had not been disclosed in the petition and not served. (11a – 10(e).)     Thus there had been no jurisdiction obtained.    Mr. Peter Schmiedel admitted that instead of hearing on the issue of Mary’s incompetency some proceeding occurred in relation to a ‘care plan.’     Other irregularities were also noticed.

That Commencing April 2009 a number of citizen complaints had been made to law enforcement and to the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission.    Mr. Larkin is the Administrator of the said commission and earns remuneration from the State of Illinois for administrating the said administrative body.    All documents filed by the said agency appear to be filed in the name of Mr. Larkin pursuant to Supreme Court Rule 137.    Amongst the Citizens who filed complaints was one Gloria Sykes.     Mr. Larkin and attorneys employed by the agency not only ignored the complaints but were discourteous and condescending in their responses.   One response stated that the attorney (Adam Stern) who was the subject of the complaint had been appointed as Ms. Sykes’ guardian ad litem.    The averment was untrue, and 17 days later after Ms. Sykes threatened suit, the senior attorney for the IARDC claimed that the averment was a “typo.”   However, no investigation occurred.     The averments concerning Mr. Stern were serious and involved felonies associated with the cottage industry of elder cleansing.

That numerous efforts were made to silence complaints to law enforcement pursuant to 18 USCA 4 and pursuant to the First Amendment to the United States Constitution.    Larkin being aware of the following facts instituted proceedings reasonably calculated intimidate and induce lawyers to ignore their legal, moral, ethical and 18 USCA 4 responsibilities:

Mary Sykes and others were being systematically denied due process and equal protection of the law.    In particular,  the Circuit Court proceedings in case 09 P 4585 were deficient.    a) The petition filed did not make the required disclosures. b) the jurisdictional criteria were ignored – put very bluntly – no jurisdiction was obtained and rather than address this lack of jurisdiction, vacate the void orders, Stern, Farenga, Schmiedel  in concert with Larkin and certain jurists refused to address the issue except in a manner reasonably calculated to intimidate.    As an example – attorney  Ditkowsky was sanctioned by a Court that knew it had no jurisdiction.   The Appellate Court vacated the sanction on this basis. c)  Mary was regularly abused – in particular she was barred from having contact with her two sisters, her younger daughter, her friends, her prior activities.  d) Mary’s estate had been pillaged.   Her safety deposit box had been emptied and the contents removed.  (Not one coin in the million dollars’ worth of coins was inventoried).

Persons who objected to the alleged criminal activities of Attorneys Adam Stern, Cynthia Farenga, Peter Schmiedel, et. al were being harassed, intimidated, and denigrated without any just cause.   In particular, Gloria Sykes was subjected to a denial of due process of law (full faith and credit of a valid judgment) by Judge Connors.   Later on, when she again complained too loudly, she was chained to a chair, threatened, and harassed until she disclosed where she had hidden her personal property.   (It is reported that at first Judge Stuart at first denied under oath this event, but later admitted it)

Attorneys who were engaged to represent the interests of Mary Sykes or the persons who were concerned that Ms. Sykes’ rights were violated were subjected to inappropriate and patently wrongful disciplinary proceedings.

That Attorney JoAnne Denison and Attorney Kenneth Ditkowsky when threatened by Attorney Adam Stern, Cynthia Farenga, Peter Schmiedel, Lea Black,  etc. refused to stop complaining concerning the continuing elder abuse/financial Exploitation (elder cleansing) that Mary Sykes was being subjected.    Ergo, at the direction of Farenga, Stern, Schmiedel, Larkin  and others, disciplinary proceedings were commenced against Ditkowsky and Denison by the IARDC attorneys well knowing that every statement made by either attorney was verified by either an affidavit, testimony in Court, a statement in Court by Farenga, Stern, Schmiedel et. al, or affidavit.      The aforesaid attorneys were also well aware that every statement, every letter, every posting of statements made by the aforesaid attorneys was content related speech protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, Article 1 section 4 of the Illinois Constitution and the public policy of the State of Illinois as set forth in 735 ILCS 110/5.

18 USCA 371 states:

If two or more persons conspire either to commit any offense against the United States, or to defraud the United States, or any agency thereof in any manner or for any purpose, and one or more of such persons do any act to effect the object of the conspiracy, each shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than five years, or both.  18 U.S.C.A. § 371 (West)

To protect senior citizens and the disabled the Congress of the United States of America has enacted laws to protect citizens including the Elder Justice Act, Americans with Disabilities, 42 USCA 1983 etc.     The breach of fiduciary relationship is a taxable event.   Thus, when a benefit was obtained by the raiding of Mary Sykes’ safety deposit box, or the mining of Alice Gore’s teeth,  Federal Income  taxes became due and payable.   As the items were never inventoried it is assumed and therefore alleged upon reliable information and belief that the Federal Income taxes were not paid.

That Ms. Denison and Mr. Ditkowsky have called upon Mr. Larkin and the IARDC to join with them in calling for an HONEST intelligent complete and comprehensive investigation of the elder cleansing of Mary Sykes and dozens of other senior citizens that have routinely occurred in the State of Illinois and in the United States of America.   Mr. Larkin’s answer has been to prosecute both Ditkowsky and Denison for making said request pursuant to law.

In light of the growing fraud scandals that are being reported in the Hospice industry, the nursing home industry, and the strong suggestions of involvement by lawyers  – and the continued prosecution by the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission of lawyers who have spoken out against Judicial corruption  the undersigned herewith files this written demand  and complaint.

The undersigned as citizens of the United States of America and the State of Illinois herewith demand that government including State of Illinois, the United States of America and the Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission do an HONEST complete intelligent and comprehensive investigation of the ‘elder cleansing’ cottage industry and in particular the role of Larkin, Stern, Farenga, Schmiedel, Black, and such other and different attorneys who aided and abetted their attempts to obstruct justice and discourage attorneys 18 USCA 4 reports to law enforcement.

Respectfully Submitted.


Kenneth Ditkowsky

This Complaint is also filed against Adam Stern, Peter Schmiedel, Cynthia Farenga, Lea Black and all other attorneys who have participated directly or indirection in the obstruction of justice that has been promulgated by Mr. Larkin and the IARDC in their attempt to Cover –up and impede citizen reporting of felonies to law enforcement.    There is no excuse for Attorneys licensed to practice law to not follow the law as set forth by the SCOTUS in its decisions and/or deny a citizen of his/her First Amendment rights and privileges.

The unsubstantiated allegation has been made that one or more of the miscreants has an investment in the nursing home industry and therefore has an independent profit from the elder cleansing industry.




I retain no copyright on this document and give my permission to whomever desires to copy, republish post etc.  My desire is to motivate all the victims of elder cleansing and their families to pursuant to 18 USCA 4 report the violations of the law to law enforcement, name names, and specify the acts of elder cleansing.


All attorneys as well as all public officials take an oath to defend the Constitution.    Part of defending the constitution is to root out those who are denying our fellow citizens of their Constitutional rights.    When MS orchestrated the mining of Alice Gore’s teeth for the gold filings each of us was made poorer!    We substantially lost our because each one of us did not report to law enforcement this outrageous act of stealing the gold out of the teeth of a senior citizen.   I personally lost out in that I did not write a letter to Mr. Larkin – which he would have ignored – demanding an HONEST complete and comprehensive investigation of attorney MS and her role is this disgusting event.  (The fact I was not educated concerning the event at the time is irrelevant as such went on in my City, my community and could have effected those I love).
