On Halloween — something scary — and real — a guardianship!

Just in the nick of time for Halloween, someone has sent me a very, very, very scary you tube embedded in an excellent article from The Pundint — a woman under a guardianship who is crying and sobbing she wants to go home, but the NY Probate court judge and GAL won’t let her:


Read the article.  I think it’s easier to be one of the undead- a vampire, werewolf or walking undead than it is to be a grandpa or grandma forced into a nursing home, chemically restrained, nothing to do, than it is to be one of those monsters.

How did our society get that way?  What of poor Alice Gore, Carol Wyman and others–forced into nursing homes against their will when loving family wanted to take them in.

Quotes from our very own Cook County Public Guardian’s Office:

Some old people just remain in the community far too long when they really should be put in [a locked down] nursing home.

and another favorite from yesterday

It’s really hard when they (the seniors) know what is going on, because then they don’t want to be in a nursing home.  No one wants to go there.  It’s much better when they are more out of it [read, mentally disabled] and they don’t know where they are or who they are talking to.

And this is when the people have advance directives (a POA) saying they never want to be in a nursing home!

Let me know if anyone hears of anything scarier than what our own OPG attys state in the hallways of the 18th floor.

The response from other attorneys on the 18th floor when I repeat such statements in court?  They tell the court that I shouldn’t be allowed to repeat anything than isn’t on a transcript!  Of course, my response to that is, if you are ashamed to have anyone repeat what you said, next time try not saying it in the first place.

I’m just wondering, who are these people anyway and when they notice that after their heart donation they were still walking and talking but apparently not thinking very much.

Yes, these are real live quotes from the OPG in Cook County Chicago.

Decison from Judge Tharp — Rudek/Hartman Decision against consumer

Please take a look at the Rudek Decision.

In this case, the patient suffered a stroke.  He was supposed to be transferred to rehab and Humana medicare insurance was supposed to pay for it.  But at the last minute, and on the way out the door, the patient (who had suffered a stroke) was handed a “Notice of Termination of Benefits” so when he arrived at the stroke rehab center, he had no insurance benefits.  The family appealed on an ASAP basis, but that took time.  Still, they won and the hospital blamed the insurance company and reported them to the state for wrongful action, and the insurance company blamed the hospital.

Judge Tharp said that the hospital and the insurance company had immunity and after years of paying for the insurance, it was strangely not consumer fraud!  Not only that, he did not particularly like that argument and wanted to focus on the Notice of Termination statutory requirements which are technical in nature–which means whether a senior lives or dies in the US will be based upon how and when some piece of paper is handed to a sickly stroke victim lying on a gurney on the way out the door to rehab.  Oh yeah, I prefer that way to decide this important case and others like it, don’t you?

See the decision


The only question is whether we will be filing a Motion to Reconsider which is due in 10 days from the date of the decision or by Nov 6 2014

Give us your thoughts. Don’t be shy.

How high can the scum in the cess pool rise to the top? Apparently to the very top, and here’s the reason why.

While I am pondering the decision from the 7th circuit today which while scathing, was not a surprise at least to me.  I am getting entirely used to the fact that the courts now rule 80% in favor of big business and big business interests and that the little guy does not stand a chance at all.

So from the 7th circuit we have fresh from yesterday:


and the 7th circuit decision can be found here:


In 7 pages of decision, not one mention of the First Amendment, not one mention of violation of Mary Sykes’ civil rights, not one mention that the blog and other concerned citizens and other concerned blogs have seen the summary removal of not one, but TWO probate judges and the scarcity of other attorneys involved.

Since this blog tells it like it is and there are the cases of not just Sykes, but also Gore, Bedin, Carol Wyman, Drabik, and a string of others, one wonders about this odd language:

In addition to misrepresenting the identity of his client, Ditkowsky and a colleague, attorney JoAnne Denison, launched a crusade against everyone concerned with the guardianship—Carolyn Toerpe, the judge, Mary Sykes’s guardians ad litem, and others. Through websites, petitions, emails, and blogs, they accused these persons of theft, bribery, and other misconduct. They did not, however, identify any evidence of crime; they treated their dissatisfaction with Carolyn Toerpe’s appointment as sufficient justi-fication for making sweeping and unsupported accusations.

The language is beyond odd, it is entirely bizarre.  How did I become “Ken’s collegue”?  Why are no other blogs mentions that feature Sykes, ie, NASGA and Probate Sharks, and how does the 7th circuit explain the disappearance of Judge Stuart from the scene?

We know the letter clearly says Ken was at the Rule 11 investigatory stage, we know that Judge Stuart said at first she never chained Gloria, and then she prevaricated on the witness stand and then I published a Bankruptcy transcript of PS and AS gloating Gloria had indeed been chained.

The other curious part of the decision is that it is pretty much absent of any law, which is extremely odd for a court decision, especially one from the federal circuit.

More odd, they claim I am not admitted to the 7th circuit when I clearly am.  How do they think I have an attorney ID to load up documents there?  How did that pleading get on Pacer for the 7th circuit.

It’s almost as if some lawyer goon or thug held a weapon to the 7th circuit and said “here, publish this–I’ll tell you the law and the facts”.

I guess they would be more convincing about “frivolous appeal” if they could have based it on the following:

1) while Ken was investigating, you are not to investigate any probate shenanigans if the GAL’s tell you not to (which AS and PS clearly said to Ken). All investigations of lack of jurisdiction and the railroading of a senior citizen must go through attorneys selected from the GAL list and they will decide, and not outsider attorneys, if and when Mary needed an attorney, and oh, by the way, she clearly did not, we can feel that in our bones.  Damn what Mary wrote on a video posted on the internet and damn what Mary said about her estate and it does not matter she appeared perfectly competent in one video–Judge Connors could decide elsewise if she wanted to.

2) Cite the law that seniors, as they get elderly have eroded human and civil rights, well because they’re elderly and fairly useless.  They don’t work, can barely walk and can’t feed themselves.  Surely the US Constitution does not cover the frail, the elderly and the weak.  The courts can decide their fate and that will be a locked down nursing home, chemical restraints and the stripping of their savings into accounts where probate judges and attorneys “know better” for them.  They board dogs and cats in cages for months on end, why not grandma and grandpa?  And while you’re at it, ban 90% or more of former friends and family.  They need to work and not waste time visiting an useless vegetable, right?

3) Cite the law that says if you don’t like a blog, if you don’t like emails, websites, faxes and mail, you can declare all of that a “vendetta” and then shred the First Amendment.  Ken wasn’t the only one worried, so were a variety of blogs and others–even numerous attorneys in the nation, worried, very worried about the “elder cleansing” scheme or trap that Mary and a host of seniors have fallen into, risking their very life, liberty, property and savings.  Cite the law that Mary’s beloved home which she wanted to live in “until she died” with Gloria had to be sold at 1/3 of its appraised value and rubber stamped by the Probate Court.  Please, do this for us.

4) Cite the law that permits Mary’s safe deposit box containing nearly $1 million or thereabouts in coins can be drilled without court order because, well Judge Connors’ team of attorneys in that court room told her repeatedly the coins didn’t exist.  Well, then why the secrecy in drilling the box, why the lack of investigation.  Why during my trial, it was a shock and sent the entire court into a tizzy when Gloria (who for sure was NOT permitted to testify) brought in subpoenaed documents (which took forever to subpoena because many miscreants did not want her to have this information), showing that a safe deposit box was drilled out, the contents emptied by the Plenary Guardian–without a court order!  None of the GAL’s or the Guardian’s attorney every told Judge Stuart about that.   So cite the law that the safe deposit boxes can be drilled, contents emptied and never inventoried.

5) Cite the law that a number of missteps in probate at some point doesn’t indicate theft, embezzlement, conversion and that does not dictate a full investigation.

6) The 7th circuit forgets Mary was not served with a summons and complaint, her safe deposit box was promptly drilled out by the Plenary Guardian without a court order and without an inventory, and the court appointed attorneys are careful not to allow anyone to ask any questions of the Guardian.  The Guardian has never been asked to inventory and swear to the inventory of that box.  The Guardian has never been asked why she drilled into a safe deposit box when signature cards on the box indicated it was in Mary’s and Gloria’s name.

A very curious decision by the 7th circuit.  Typically the Federal Court of appeals judges are not blind, deaf and dumb.  They look at all the facts alleged.  They look for the holes, they require District Court judges to think, act and scrutinize.

But not in the Mary Sykes case.  What these judges do is damn the facts!  Let’s go and just accuse the whistleblowers of having no facts.  And while we’re at it, we won’t cite any law.

It’s much easier to convince me that an appeal is frivolous, Lady and Mister Justices if you cite the facts, explain them away in some manner, find some law, even if it is worthless, lame and wrong or wrongly applied.

In this decision, there was none of that.  It was basically, we don’t like what you are saying, we don’t like your blog, your websites, your First Amendment rights, your vendetta (really? the truth is now a vendetta, come on now, you might not like the truth, it might be inconvenient, it might be embarrassing to Illinois, a top ten contender for most corrupt state, but vendetta via blogs and websites to release one poor railroaded grandma from guardianship purgatory, don’t you really think that’s a bit much?  Oh well, last time this “group” whatever group it is got Atty Melissa Smart to say the blog is like crying “fire” in a crowded theatre, so I guess vendetta is better).

Still, the lack of law and facts, the lack of just plain effort and the conclusory tone of “no one’s corrupt here, move along”, bespeaks a much darker side to all of this

Oh well, I was told that the nursing home corruption went “all the way up” and “it’s a deeply entrenched system that no one will ever believe”.  I didn’t think the 7th circuit was part of it, but come on now, that decision, are you kidding?


From Ken Ditkowsky–the Coopers write yet another to the ARDC that is wrongfully dismissed out of hand

As you will recall, 99 year old Alice Gore had 29 gold teeth onlays pulled and a feeding tube implanted in her so the nursing home did not have to deal with slowly feeding her.  Bev Cooper says her mom wanted to eat, she loved food and Alice did not want a feeding tube but wanted to eat real food.

All that was denied her by the Guardian and her attorney, ala permission of the 18th floor.

$1.5 million is also missing and not investigated by the 18th floor or the IARDC.

Dear Mr. Larkin,
Is it not time for your resignation!  (see forwarded attachment)
It is bad enough that you by your conduct toward Ms. Gore and the Coopers reflects a level of amorality not observed by the public since the War Crimes trials held shortly after WW2,  but you defame (or allow your subordinates) the core values of America.   Let me make this very clear – SENIOR CITIZENS AND THE DISABLED ARE NOT FAIR GAME FOR THE CORRUPT JUDICIAL OFFICIALS AND ATTORNEYS WHO ARE CURRENTLY CONDUCTING A WAR UPON THE ELDERLY AND THE DISABLED.
The public has no confidence in the legal profession for very good reason!   How can they when the action of gold mining an elderly widow’s teeth is acceptable conduct (according to the IARDC and the Supreme Court of Illinois), but the reporting of this terrible conduct is unethical and warrants a four year suspension of a law license.   If real senior citizens and real disabled people were not victims of your acting in concert with the elder cleansers the absurdity might be comical.
The ‘cover-up!’ has to end.   I copied law enforcement and am demanding from them a complete intelligent comprehensive investigation by a grand jury of at the very least the Mary Sykes case and the Alice Gore case.   (By a separate cover I’ve forwarded a copy of the Press release that Investigative producer Gloria Sykes authored and forwarded to the media)
Yours very truly,
N.B.   It has been reported that Illinois has a $3008 per capita tax to pay for the corruption that Illinois citizens endure!   Why should Illinois citizens paid six figure salaries to public officials who aid and abet corruption and other felonies!!!

On Gloria’s ADA complaint–find it here

I will periodically monitor and publish pleadings on Gloria’s ADA case.

You will be able to find updated pleadings in this public drive


I have the docket sheet in there, and I also have the complaint, if you are looking to file a similar case.

The docket sheet clearly shows that answers in this case are overdue, that the summonses were served and so Gloria now has the right to file  a Motion for Default and set prove up of her damages.

She says she has not been contacted about an extension of time.

PRESS RELEASE from Gloria Sykes–Sykes v. Cook County Courts and Presiding Judge Timothy Evans and Probate Judge Aicha MacCarthy



CHICAGO ILLINOIS – October 27, 2014

Illinois Attorney General, Lisa Madigan and other public entities failed to appear and answer in a discrimination lawsuit under the Americans With Disabilities Act.  Chicago residents Gloria Jean Sykes and her disabled mother Mary have filed a disability discrimination lawsuit against the Cook County Circuit Court; the Cook County Circuit Court Chief Judge Timothy Evans; the Cook County Circuit Court, Probate Division; Probate Judge Aicha MacCarthy; the Office of the Illinois Attorney General, Lisa Madigan; the State of Illinois, Governor Pat Quinn; and, Carolyn Toerpe of Naperville, Illinois.  Filed on September 25, 2014 in the U.S. District Court under Title II of the Americans’ With Disabilities Act, the defendants were due to appear and respond on or before October 20, 2014 – and to date herein, the defendant courts, judges and other Illinois public entities have failed to appear and respond.

Joined in the lawsuit by a disability rights advocate and colleague from Indiana, Sykes says she is “not surprised that the defendants have failed to appear and respond because what these defendant public entities have done to her disabled mother is simply indefensible.”  According to Sykes, her colleague and the lawsuit “each of the defendant public entities are/were uniquely capable of finding the applicable regulations technical
assistance, and case law and recognizing the substantial likelihood of violating the federally guaranteed and protected ADA rights of the Plaintiffs …” – after all, the defendants are courts, judges and other public entities who know, make and enforce the law which makes their failure to timey appear and respond to the lawsuit even more intriguing.

Under Title II of the Americans’ With Disabilities Act, 42 U.S.C. § 12132 provides that, “… no qualified individual with a disability shall, by reason of such disability, be excluded from participation in or be denied the benefits of the services, programs, or activities of a public entity, or be subjected to discrimination by any such entity” and according to Sykes, her colleague and the lawsuit, the Cook County Circuit Court and other defendant public entities have discriminated against Mary Sykes and her daughter Gloria since 2009 when Mary, a lifelong resident of Norwood Park and the widow of a career City of Chicago police officer who dedicated his entire professional life to public safety, was placed under the supervision and control of an adult probate guardianship by the Probate Division of the Cook County Circuit Court.

Adult guardianship is a subject of significant public importance deserving of far more public discussion than it has received over the years.  According to Sykes and her colleague “adult guardianship is a complex legal and social issue which is being used more frequently as our “boomer” population ages and succumbs to the frailties of life’s incapacities.”  In 1987 the U.S. Congress issued a report on adult guardianship and referred to the practice as a “national disgrace”1 because failures in the system are widespread and pervasive in every state across the country.  Between 2004 and 2011 the Government Accountability Office issued five different reports,2 none of which reflects much confidence in how guardianship is administered daily in courts all across the country, and one legal scholar writing about probate guardianship refers to a legal process “where the law of liquidation has taken precedence over the law of preservation.”3

Sykes, et al. v. Cook County Circuit Court, et al. (Case No.: 1:14-cv-07459) has been assigned to the Honorable Judge John J. Tharp, Jr. who, in a previous case involving Sykes and her mother, wrote “… as unappealing as it sounds applied to a living person, she [Mary] is the res of an in rem proceeding”4 which, according to the recent lawsuit is one of the discriminatory practices and disparate impacts of a probate adult guardianship because to be a “res” is to render the person under guardianship – referred to legally as being a ‘ward’ — to a status of being less than a second-class citizen, less than even human and in fact, as a matter of law — to be viewed as a “res” is to be viewed as being “a thing” and according to Sykes, “it is simply shocking to my conscious to witness my mother being treated like she is some sort of thing and less than human.”

Sykes is certainly not alone in her experience and she finds no solace in knowing that collectively hundreds of thousands of U.S. citizens are under guardianship in most every state of the union.  Sykes, a 39- year veteran news magazine and documentary producer, reporter, and writer – mostly for NBC, and published author and national investigative reporter, she and her Indiana colleague and disability rights advocate, Tim Lahrman, are currently in production of a 60-minute film documentary on the subject of adult guardianship: the two attended the 43rd World Congress on Adult Guardianship held in Arlington VA this past May where the pair interviewed several law professors, former judges, professional guardians and international advocates from various foreign counties in attendance at the three day Congress. Sykes also attemded and videotaped John Marshall Law School’s Conference on Rights of Older Persons where she interviewed many international scholars and advocates.  Currently slated for release in the spring of 2015 Sykes says, “the documentary film is intended to be both educational, inspirational and likewise serve as the catalyst for a much needed public discussion about how and when a guardianship may well impact each and every one of us because, after all, it is simply inescapable that each and every one of us will grow old and perhaps be disabled someday.”

Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan maintains a public website dedicated to her concerns for and responsibilities to Illinois’ elder population.  Found online at    http://www.illinoisattorneygeneral.gov/seniors/   AG Madigan readily recognizes that  “… protecting older citizens continues to be one of the most important responsibilities of the Attorney General’s office”.  Sykes says, “there is little doubt that AG Madigan is well aware of my mother’s case, I have called the hotline countless times, I have written numerous letters, sent hundreds and hundreds of emails, spent hours upon hours on the telephone, the court files are voluminous, two Chicago attorneys who have spoken out on behalf of my mother have been publically disciplined and professionally humiliated over my mother’s case, one probate judge recently, suddenly and quietly retired without notice, another judge is now facing judicial discipline proceedings, one of the appointed guardian ad litems has closed their office and cannot be located, and yet with all the hue and cry, not a word from Lisa Madigan, not a single effort to investigate and protect my mother – and now, in the face of a federal disability discrimination lawsuit, the AG and other Illinois public entities do not appear and respond to even defend themselves.”

Subject: Blood money
Until I ran across Mr. Larkin and the Illinois Attorney Registration and Distortion Commission I believed that at least at some level the political elite and justice system worked.   Larkin has taught me in the Amu case that Jim Crow is not dead, but, has changed its name to “legal ethics” and a uppity man with a skin color that is a hue darker than Mr. Larkin’s warrants a three year suspension of his law license if he complains that a judge hearing one of his cases has tilted the playing field a bit.   In my case I learned that it was absolutely proper for corrupt judges and lawyers to railroad senior citizens into guardianships, isolate them from their loved ones, redistribute the seniors’ estates to themselves and some friends, and ultimately kill of the victim; however, to comply with 18 USCA 4 and report the felonies is a heinous ethical breach warranting a four year suspension of a law license.   Larkin further taught me in the Denison case that he does not believe that he is subject to the First Amendment or any law.   Then, I learned that even due process is irrelevant when Larkin is involved.

Thus, I decided to pay the ‘blood money’ that Larkin wants as his “costs”   The $1000.00 check number 4582 was mailed this morning along with the following letter, to wit:

Dear Mr. Jerome Larkin :

I am in receipt of your letter of September 26, 2014 notifying me of what appears to be an out of term time ex-parte judgment of $1000.00 entered against me in direct violation of the retaliation provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act and the First Amendment to the United States Constitution.

Without waiving any rights including the Right to seek remediation and prosecution for your continued aiding and abetting elder cleansing, enclosed please find a check for the $1,000 judgment wrongfully in inappropriately entered.    Please forward a receipt and satisfaction of judgment.


Kenneth Ditkowsky


cc:  Honorable Eric Holder, Attorney General of the United States of America, Americans with Disabilities Complaint Department.

Let me make the record very clear.    I am personally by this e-mail filing an ADA complaint for retaliation on the following basis:

1) Pursuant to 18 USCA 4 and other Federal and State statutes I complained pursuant to ADA and other statutes of the elder abuse and exploitation of Mary Sykes, 09 P 4585.   In particular I complained to Mr. Holder by letter (which letter was produced during disciplinary proceedings by Larkin, whose attorney asked me if I was repentant for writing the letter of complaint) concerning the attempted elder cleansing of Ms. Sykes.

2) That from time to time I have complained to law enforcement and demanded an Honest complete and comprehensive investigation of malpractice of Guardian ad litems Cynthia Farenga, Adam Stern, and others in that they have participated with Mr. Larkin in preventing certain disabled (senior citizens) from obtaining a reasonable accommodation for their alleged disabilities and have acting in concert with certain judges acted in concert with those judges (sans jurisdiction) to deprive disabled persons and in particular Mary Sykes of equal protection of the law and the reasonable accommodation to which the said senior citizens are absolutely entitled.   An example that I have given is the prospecting in the mouth of Alice Gore for her gold filings, the removal of the same and the non-inventory thereof.

3) That from time to time I have complained to law enforcement and demanded an Honest complete and comprehensive investigation of Mr. Larkin and various attorneys who receive public funds in their efforts to intimidate, and harass family members who have complained of the elder cleansings of various disabled and elderly persons.

The demand of Mr. Larkin and the Illinois Supreme Court of $1000.00 is a clear retaliation against me for invoking the ADA.   By a separate cover I will forward a copy of the check and my covering letter.   An Honest intelligent complete and comprehensive investigation of the violations of ADA complaints filed by myself and by others is requested.    We believe that a Grand Jury investigation of the Mary Sykes, Alice Gore and related cases is called for as the violations have been committed by Attorneys who know or should know the Law of the Land.

Thank you for your courtesy and co-operation

Subject: Viewpoint: Carol Marin “Did you really mean that “The job of reporters is to report???”

Dear Ms. Carol Marin: 

I read your view point on page 23 of Suntimes of Sunday October 26, 2014. The title is,” The job of the reporters (according to you) is to report” But is it? When you wrote [we] “report news where ever it takes us” you make it appear on paper that you are consistent in doing that. But is that impression really true? In fairness, that is not quite true is it? In truth, you report news selectively which amounts to entertainment, distortion and/or misinformation when all news are not being reported. We have sent you clear evidence of judicial corruption that impact on Social Justice Issues in Our Society. You turned a blind eye to it. So please when you report your selective news to the public, please try to be more precise and accurate in letting the public know that these are select news. Please disclose that there are no-go areas you are unable to report. Please report that there are truths that you turn blind eyes to as news reporters. That you will not touch the corruption in the court system for whatever reason. That way the public is not misinformed that you report all news that affect their lives.
The video link below and related information were sent to you several months ago. You simply ignored it. Whose interest is served by such “refusal to report some news?” The public deserve to be adequately informed. Is it because these types of news are not what you would like exposed? Three lawyers (Ken Ditkowsky-4 year suspension for speaking up about Judicial Corruption and Elder Cleansing and Guardianship abuse; ‘Lanre Amu-3 year suspension for speaking up about judicial corruption; Joanne Denison awaiting punishment for speaking up against Elder Cleansing, Guardianship abuse, and judicial Corruption. Deafening silence from Carol Marin?) These Courageous lawyers have been dealt with ever so severely by the Court system for having the Audacity to speak out about wrong doing within Our Court system. Your silence in all of this is deafening and impeaches your claim in your article on page 23, on Sun times of 10-26-14,”The job of reporters is to report”. As a reporter, you do have the “fair report privilege” that absolves you of liability, etc. Even if you are afraid, there must be a way you can help get our message out without exposing you and your company to liability. For example, help draw attention to what the attorneys are saying without exposing yourself and Suntimes to any liability if that is what you are afraid of. That the views expressed are not those of Carol Marin or Suntimes, but of those the three attorneys, etc. All it takes for evil to prevail is for good people and news reporter to keep silent in face of these atrocities.

Did “judicial immunity” shield the “cash for kids” judge? No

Read a great article at:


and note the following

In the ‘kids for cash’ civil lawsuit, the court found that certain of Ciavarella’s actions were not protected under the judicial immunity doctrine, including Ciavarella’s participation in a conspiracy to enact zero tolerance policies. The court specifically found that while Ciavarella served as judge of the juvenile court, he enacted an administrative policy that dictated instances in which probation officers had to file charges against and detain juveniles in Luzerne County. In his order, Judge Caputo states, “Ciavarella’s enactment and expansion of a zero-tolerance policy dictating how probation officers were to handle violations of probation and other charging decisions fall outside the scope of judicial action … Because Ciavarella’s enactment and expansion of the zero tolerance policy were non-judicial acts, judicial immunity does not shield this conduct.”

I wonder if this is how the elder cleansing cases will end.  Now we have added this week the family of Mildred Willis and Stacy Willis to the list of the probate victims and all those involved were just perps “part of the scheme”.

Note we already had a comment today that all this should be considered RICO.  But for recent decisions tossing plaintiffs out of federal court with sanctions, RICO would be an appropriate action for what we are seeing and documenting.

Someday someone will put an end to all this horror and terror on the 18th floor, but when the music of chicanery stops, who will be left with a chair to sit on?

Behind all evil on the 18th floor—what names are found most in adverse publicity.

what I don’t understand is there are protests, but where are the voters?


According to its website, Robert Harris was appointed by Timothy Evans and Timothy Evans is selected as presiding judges by the judges themselves.


What about Quinn and her keeping Mildred in a nursing home against her will?

Quinn is an associate judge and she is appointed by the presiding judges.

So I guess we can’t directly blame the voters for this mess.

I want to thank the anti-eviction coalition for bringing this case to the attention of the public.  Thank heavens for blogs.


In Chicago, where the dead can vote–early and often!

Subject: October 25, 2014 –
What is amazing is the fact that we tolerate so many corrupt political and judicial officials.    For as long as I can remember Cook County Illinois has had corrupt political figures as part of our landscape.   Voter fraud was a tradition.   One political figure actually pointed out the philosophy of the political structure when he stated:

 “why should a person lose his franchise to vote just because he died!”

Indeed, the dead marched to the pols and voted for the party of their choice!     Similarly, we had some of the best judges money could purchase.    Prosecutors were quite candid during operation Greylord in their dismay at finding so many judges being purchased.    Two hundred dollars purchased the chief judge of the Chancery Division.

Today, the improvement is negative.    Openly and notoriously senior citizens and the disabled are being abused and exploited by judicial appointees whose avarice is unlimited.    The Bill of Rights is assaulted and gang raped at the Courthouse by blackrobed criminals who are protected by highly paid public officials such as Jerome Larkin.   In case you were not aware, Larkin was employed to protect the public from exactly the corruption that can be observed any day (Monday through Friday) on the 18th Floor of the Daley Center. [1]     Somehow Larkin got confused and he openly and notoriously acts in concert with the *****(censored!)

It may be beating a dead horse, but, a pollution that Jerome Larkin brings to the legal profession in aiding and abetting and/or acting in concert with the corrupt jurists, guardians, and assorted felons is intolerable.      I have been urging an HONEST intelligent, complete and comprehensive investigation of Larkin and his co-conspirators (including his over-paid attorneys at the IARDC) so as to root out and prosecute the elder cleansers who rob the elderly and the disabled of the American dream, but, in reality that is not enough.

The following article I copied from the internet makes the point:

Church should not fear change, pope says at close of Bishop’s gathering

Under a brilliant blue sky in St. Peter’s Square, Pope Francis beatified the late Pope Paul VI on Sunday. The lavish ceremony comes at the end of a two-week-long assembly of bishops that revealed


Corruption is like “bad breath,” says Pope Francis, “it is hard for the one who has it to realize it; others realize it and have to tell him.”

In an address to a delegation of the International Association of Penal Law this morning, Francis commented on a variety of troubling international legal issues, including the widespread problem of corruption, which he called “a greater evil than sin.”

According to Francis, remorse is possible only when one is aware of evil, which is not the case with a corrupt person.

“The corrupt person does not perceive his corruption,” the Pope said. “For this reason, it is difficult for the corrupt person to get out of his state through remorse of conscience. More than forgiven, this evil must be cured,” he said.

“The scandalous concentration of global wealth,” said Francis, “is possible through the connivance of political authorities.”

“Few things are harder than opening a breach in a corrupt heart,” Francis continued. “When the personal situation of the corrupt becomes complicated, he knows all the loopholes to escape as did the dishonest steward of the Gospel.”

“The corrupt person goes through life taking the shortcuts of opportunism,” said the Pope, “with an air of innocence, wearing the mask of an honest person, which he begins to believe.” The corrupt person “cannot accept criticism, discredits anyone who criticizes him, tries to belittle any moral authority who would question him, does not value others and insults anyone who thinks differently. If the balance of power permits, he persecutes anyone who contradicts him.”

Unfortunately, according to Francis, the problem is widespread.

“Corruption has become natural, a personal and social custom, a common practice in commercial and financial transactions, in public procurement, in any negotiation involving State agents,” he said.

The panorama is not pretty, and there are no quick fixes.

“What can criminal law do against corruption?” the Pope asked.

“Penalties are selective,” the Pope said. “They are like a net that captures only the small fish, while leaving the big ones free in the sea,” Francis added.

“Still,” says Francis, “the Lord never tires of knocking on the doors of the corrupt. Corruption is powerless against hope.”

[1] Not all the judges on the 18 th Floor are corrupt.      Unfortunately, the guardianship cases has exposed several judges whose corruption qualifies for a Nobel prize.      Judge Connors’ evidence deposition at pages 89, to the end demonstrates just how unjudicial the courts have become.    Her August 2009 and August 2010 utterances recorded in the Report of Proceedings in case 09 P 4585 are amazing and demonstrate the corruption of a judge who apparently administered a statute for 12 years without bothering to either read it or understand it.     Had she read it – as an example – she would have known in August 2009 that the petition before her to declare Mary Sykes was defective, no jurisdiction had been obtained, and that she had very specific and very procrustean obligations (pursuant to the Civil Rights Act) as to Mary Sykes.      The statement in her evidence deposition that if someone had called to her attention the lack of jurisdiction she would have vacated her order done things properly and come to the same result represents the apex of corruption and the nadir of the legal profession.

From Ken Ditkowsky–the fight continues

The following is in response from a probate victim (GM) whose husband was removed from the home against his will, drugged, placed in a locked down facility.  When she complained, they put a restraining order on her.  $600k is missing from that estate from a predatory Guardian.

 The crimes of elder cleansing go on without reprieve.   Corrupt Judicial Officials and their appointees, but those who aid and abet the criminal conduct feel immune to not only the Constitution, the core values of America, but, the Federal ADA and consumer acts.
My gripe is with the retaliation and attempted intimidation committed by Jerome Larkin and his cronies.  Larkin acting in concert with the criminal elements not only protects the felonies of elder cleansing, but, *****.      It should be noted that Larkin is reported not to have filed the Ethics (disclosure statement) required of all persons receiving public funds as remuneration for services.    His failure to provide that information suggests that he has something to hide!

Lookie here– I told Judge McCarthy NOT to appoint they OPG, they’re evil, and 3,000 petitioners and a case and family on the South Side agree!


I think this says it all.

How in the heck can the OPG get away with such violations of civil and human rights AND WHEN AGAINST THE ELDERLY?!?!?!

what foxes are guarding this hen house?  The OPG, that’s for sure.

Now poor Janie Thomas lives in a locked down nursing home and her family is isolated from from her.

I warned Judge MacCarthy about this and she ignored me.  She was elected by the voters of the south side and said in her videos she would be “fair and just”.  But then she appoints the OPG for Janie Thomas and says “she has no choice”

Well, yes she did.

It’s like the judges in Roman times throwing the Christians to the lions.  Read or reread the story of Perpetua and Felicity.


another good story left out of the “bible” for being too feminist. shessh.

From the corruption report–the Red Light ticket scandal and a politician pubicly against corruption

First the red light ticket scandal, where everyone got a ticket, red light or not, turns out to just be a money laundering scheme for the rich and connected:


and from Palm Springs, ONE conservator (guardian) is replaced after years of incompetence and abuse:


Interestingly enough, read the article carefully and this Conservator had many other clients being neglected by her, and the court did not order an investigation into those wards either.


And now we have the Allen Frake estate where millions of dollars in investment properties are unrented, a court appointed nimrod never returns phone calls and is not renting them out at all.  The son, Gary Frake wants to take over the property management, rent them out and ensure profitability, but the court just hands it back to the care nothing guardian of the estate where nothing got done for 20 months, ignoring the son’s and only heir’s pleas for competent management.

Business as usual.

And now from a singular politician who acknowledges rampant corruption and vows to do something about it.  Why aren’t there more?  Why do the American citizens suffer so much?

Looks like Bev Cooper stepped on JL/Myrrah’s last nerve!

I have to admit, I have never really seen such a letter from an allegedly professional organization.

As you will all recall, after 99 year old Alice Gore was guardianized, out of all the Gore/Cooper family members, a granddaughter was selected to become her guardian by the court and agreed to by the attorneys involved (see letter)–despite the fact the young woman had a long and extremely troublesome history of severe mental illness (which they were all informed of) and being in and out of psych hospitals and treatment!  Next Alice Gore is isolated for 10 months from over 20 long time friends and family, and the next time her beloved daughter sees her, 29 gold teeth (onlays, very expensive) have been pulled. She was perfectly capable of eating, she loved to eat!  With all teeth, she enjoyed steaks, hamburgers– you name it at age 99.  But, it takes too long for her to eat, so some miscreant tied in dentist (Bev has the name) pulls 29 gold teeth to mine them from poor Alice’s body while she is still alive, then they insert a feeding tube because she takes too long to eat.

Now, mind you, Bev Cooper offered to take her mother into her home and feed her herself, and take care of her–but those attorneys and the judge blocked that, instead opting for the mentally ill granddaughter, complete isolation of Alice Gore, pulling her teeth and forcibly putting in a feeding tube all because it takes too long for her to eat and the nursing home staff won’t be bothered!

So this is the response from the ARDC–Ms. Myrrah, who apparently squeals like a squish video victim so loudly it comes right thru in her letter, which I find to be amazingly unprofessional.  Ken’s comments are below too.


From Ken Ditkowsky to the Coopers who are shocked with outrage by the tenor of this letter:


same letter with my sticky notes:


This is exactly what I have been complaining concerning.    Why is Mr. Larkin and the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission so complacent when serious crimes are committed by the attorney mentioned in the attached letter!
I submit that when a 90 year old woman is isolated from her family, her 1.5 million dollar estate is ravaged, her civil rights have been forfeited, and he teeth prospected for he gold filings at least one felony has been committed.  The corruption at Mr. Larkin’s Attorney Registration and Distortion Commission of the Supreme Court of Illinois is documented by the attachment!    If Mr. Larkin felt the need to do the job that he is paid six figures to do, he would have discovered that the Alice Gore estate was so badly mismanaged and ravaged that the attorneys from the offices of the last guardian appointed were impressed by the obvious felonies that had been committed and were ignored by the authorities.  Of course Larkin recognizing the names of the miscreant attorneys just swept the felonies under the table.    An investigation as to why is more than called for!    18 USCA 4, obstruction of justice, conspiracy, fraud, and malfeasance of office are the first set of charges that come to mind that local and Federal authorities ought to consider bring against Larkin and those who act in concert with him.
Robbing the estate of a elderly person, who has been found disabled, is a violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act.   As Larkin has been informed of this conduct his culpability certainly is an issue!
Equally important in this case the suggestion that I personally received from a confidential source that the placing of Ms. Gore in a nursing home resulted in a ‘kickback’ for the orchestrating guardian ad item.    This ‘kickback’ is believed to be substantial.    N.B.   The kickbacks to guardians and guardian ad litem is something that Larkin is reported to be aware of for some time.    I suggested the same in an e-mail that Larkin received.    Why did averment (in light of the Gillman case) was not investigated is just more evidence of Larkin’s being an accessory to these criminal acts against the elderly.
Copies of this e-mail have been forwarded to law enforcement.   Health Care fraud and in particular guardian fraud has been ignored way too long!    Illinois is reported to suffer from a per capita fraud tax of $3008.   Public Officials such as Larkin who aid and abet these fraud by either incompetence, acting in concert, or otherwise must be brought before the Bar of Justice!    The attached letter is a gross insult not only to the taxpayers of the State of Illinois, but to every honest citizen.    Thumbing an official nose at the core values of America can not be forgiven!   Larkin should be made an example of, and the Alice Gore (like the Mary Sykes case) are posterboard examples of the perfidy that exists in Illinois!  (N.B. Please note – Larkin has used his office for the purpose of trying to stifle Attorney reports pursuant to 18 USCA 4. It is time for a demonstration by the United States of America that the First Amendment has meaning and that the United STates of America will not sit on its hands when the disabled and the elderly are being ravaged!

You don’t have to go to the Mideast to find lawyers severely disciplined for protecting Human and Civil rights

Yep dissidence in the ranks of attorneys protecting human and civil rights is firmly dealt with by the likes of Jerome Larkin, head of the Ill. Atty. Discipline Commission, and not even the U.S. Sup. Ct will move a quill pen to stop it.

Thank you for thinking of me.  I view the suspension of my law license as a badge of honor.   As a lawyer grows to the maturity of having practiced law for over half a century, the lawyer looks back on the practice and wonders if he/she has made a difference and in what way.   It is very discouraging to recognize that the impact is significant only to you, your family, and your clients.    Thus, the lawyer wonders whether things would be different if he had to make clear stand between “right” and “wrong.”
In my case, when Adam Stern and Peter Schmiedel called me and made outrageous threats in April 2010 I had a choice.   I could walk away from a situation in which an elderly widow was being ravaged by a corrupt judge and her appointees to the point where she had been railroaded into a guardianship (sans jurisdiction, was isolated from her family, deprived of every civil liberty and her prior life, and her estate was being pillaged or I could stand up for the “core” principles of America that gave rise to our Constitution and our Bill of Rights.    To the benefit of my self esteem, I had no hesitation!   I waded in with both feet.   I did my mandatory investigation and when the information my clients gave was verified I requested Law Enforcement do an Honest, intelligent, complete and comprehensive investigation!    The result was I woke up in what appears to North Korea, and received from the Illinois Supreme Court a four year suspension from the practice of law – and grudgingly I am seeing some minute progress being made to re-mediate the health care fraud and to punish the miscreants.
It is abhorrent, but the most ethically challenged individuals that I’ve had contact with in my half century in the 2nd oldest profession still continue their assault on my First, Fifth, and Fourteenth Amendments and the elderly widow (Mary Sykes) is still be exploited and treated as a non-human.   I’ve written to law enforcement every day in the hope that the words and phrases of the Congress and the Illinois Legislature will be given some force and effect.    I intend to write every day until the ‘cover up’ of elder cleansing ends.
Tom – thank you for not forgetting about me.   The retaliation by the miscreants and in particular those judicial officals who ignore the Core values of America is disheartening.   Lawyers (and public officials) take an oath!   As illustrated by the campaign ads that are no flooding the media – tooooooooo many of the public officials (including judicial officials) will say anything to get elected.   Here in Illinois we have a Senator who is running for election.  I wrote him concerning the elder cleansing holocaust.    He sent me a copy of some stupid speech he gave before congress on social security!!!    I have no doubt he will be re-elected!    We get the government we deserve!

Iran bans human rights lawyer from practicing law
AP | Associated Press
Published October 19, 2014 08:28AM EDT
TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran’s semi-official ISNA news agency says a court has banned a prominent human rights lawyer from practicing her profession for three years.
Nasrin Sotoudeh claims that her country’s Bar Association has been under pressure to cancel her license to practice law since she was released from jail in 2013.
Sotoudeh, a mother of two, was sentenced to 6 years prison in 2011 on charges of spreading propaganda and conspiring to harm state security. She was granted an early release in September 2013, three months after the election of moderate President Hassan Rouhani.
—– Comment That I Posted —–
I am familiar with several U.S. attorneys (ex. Doug Schafer @ http://www.dougschafer.com and Ken Ditkowsky @ http://www.ditkowskylawoffice.com) who feel that they have been suspended or barred from the practice of law in the U.S. for similar reasons.  As Doug has explained online, he was disciplined in retaliation for exposing and bringing about the removal from the bench of a corrupt Washington State Superior Court judge.  Unfortunately, there are many U.S. attorneys and judges who have acted unethically, even criminally, who have never been disciplined.  I personally have conclusive evidence of this, but what is even more important (and needs to be reported) are the questions which I pose online in the 2-page PDF file at http://tvfields.com in connection with a Dallas, Texas case which ABC News and others reported.  I strongly encourage readers of this comment to go to http://tvfields.com, follow the link there to the 3-minute video from this case which ABC News broadcast, consider the questions posed there, and consider writing me (tvfields@oh.rr.com) for more information related to this questions.

From Glenda Martinez and Kenneth Ditkowsky on the need to report

From Glenda Martinez:

Dear Ken,
When I repeatedly reported the abuse of my husband Col. Alan Smith, to the APA, Ombudsman, and finally had to report his last injury to the local Law Enforcement agency, the results were:  RETALIATION BY THE VICIOUS GUARDIAN AND HIS EVIL ATTORNEY:  To isolate Alan from me,  by the guardian immediately requesting a fraudulent stay away order in the court.   This order was issued not even two weeks after my having law enforcement come to see the latest serious injury to my husband.
And I have not been permitted to lift it, the judge refuses to hear me, and my two attorneys….!    As a matter of fact, I could not even testify at that false hearing…later on I heard that my attorney was concerned that they had that day two bailiffs in the courtroom, and one woman bailiff, and they were going to proceed to arrest me….
In conclusion “retaliation” is what happens each time when I reported abuse, I reported it knowing that the guardian would retaliate, because it needed to be done, uncertain of consequences I would have to suffer.
**the guardian’s retaliation will escalate until they get you arrested, by the same law enforcement that was supposed to have looked into the incident of abuses!  My husband now has been deprived of all food and water, and a force feeding peg food put into his stomach!
In our case, the abuse reported was a half inch round shaped laceration to Alan’s right eye, with 6 steri strips put on it,  with severe black and blue all around the eye!
This was something serious enough,  for the police to see and investigate and so something about it, since this was the sixth injury reported to APS, elder abuse hotline, DCF,  ombudsman, and several other agencies each time it happened, with no results.
What came out of the “investigation” by the police, was nothing other than the guardian being called up and he and his cohort attorney, lying with complete fabrications, to the detective, who afterwards told me that “i had not told the truth, and that nothing had happened” even with the pictures of that and other incidents, and even after the police actually saw the injury, and even after the lieutenant told me,  “If it had been my wife, I would have had a whole squad there to investigate, you did the right thing”…his words…!
And the same thing happened with the state attorney investigation…a reply  letter sent to me with seriously wrong information on it.
I have even gone to the grand jury to testify, and never officially heard back from them…!
I have gone to the state reps, congressmen, all types of official agencies and entities, and no results…
My research into abuse by these deviant guardians, attorneys and judges goes into hundreds if not thousands of phone calls, web sites, addresses, etc. I can share the list with anyone who needs it.
**furthermore, the weirdest thing that has happened to me, is being stopped by two police cars with lights on following me  after I  recently visited a person under house arrest, having also to do with guardianship abuse!!!
Cannot name the person I had visited that afternoon,  but the police followed me as I left their parking garage,  and stopped and abused me with 3 huge false tickets. But from my auto I called an attorney, who instructed me to stay calm, and sign the tickets.
I really think that these corrupt young officers were under instructions from the guardian of this person under house arrest to follow and provoke me, and they thought I was going to be provoked sufficiently by that incident that they would have a reason to arrest me…..!  But I remained very calm, and casually did ask them, “why are you doing this, you know these are false tickets, and this is fraud…” I had called internal affairs and chief of police at that city, and they said they would investigate…
So now I had to go to yet another attorney, to defend me with this new matter!!!! the abuse just continues…
Anyone can call me with any questions…or comments or anything that may help me to see my husband which I
Have not seen now in months…! thank you…
Dear Glenda;
Thank you for sharing that painful story of abuse in Probate in Florida.  We will all keep you in our thoughts and prayers.

There is no excuse for not reporting to law enforcement and in particular the United States of America, Department of Justice the incidents of Elder Cleansing that are being experienced by you and your loved ones.   The retaliation is also a matter that should be reported.
Yes, I am aware that for demanding an Honest complete and comprehensive investigation of Elder Cleansing in the Mary Sykes case I was suspended from the practice of law for four years by a corrupt public figure (Jerome Larkin) who acts in concert with other corrupt public figures in the pro-active promulgation of elder cleansing.   The fact that I have not been silenced demonstrates to everyone that you are not alone and the First Amendment is still alive and well.  It also demonstrates that each person affected by the elderly cleansing cottage industry has a person duty to themselves to stand up and be heard.
To make a complaint you do not need a form, you do not need to jump through any hoops, all you have to do is put your complaint in writing and communicate it to law enforcement.   If you send me a copy I will forward it.   Dr. Sugar, Ms. Barbara Stone, Attorney JoAnne Denison and others will also forward it to law enforcement.   Please include the following in your complaint:
1) your name, and the identity of the person affected by the abuse, exploitation, or cleansing.
2) contact information
3) chronological concise statement of the facts upon which your complaint is based.
4) such other information as you feel is important.
Retaliation by corrupt Judicial,and Political people is just as criminal as the act of separating a citizen from his/her liberty and stealing their savings!    As an example, 18 USCA 4 requires that felonies be reported to law enforcement and thus, Mr. Jerome Larkin (administrator of the IARDC) in attempting to thwart the reports by attorneys is an accessory, obstructing justice, aiding and abetting, and acting in concert.    His retaliation against me is an independent offense.    I’ve made complaints to the Justice Department and law enforcement and I am prepared to join in the prosecution.
There is no magic in this situation.    The assault on the Bill of Rights and the Elderly (and disabled) by a small group of corrupt Judicial and Public figures cannot be tolerated.   The retaliation, if any, that has occurred is similarly unacceptable and has to be dealt with vigorously and without further delay.
I hope by these e-mails I am setting an example as to what is required of an American citizen when faced with a domestic ISIS attack on our and America’s core values by people who we trusted and owe us a duty of honesty and honor, but have dishonored themselves!   We honor our heritage by the simple act of reporting to law enforcement the  acts of people such as public figure Jerome Larkin and demanding that Law enforcement do its job and require a Grand Jury to do an Honest Complete Intelligent and comprehensive investigation of individuals such as Larkin, his role in the obstruction of justice, and whatever pro-active promulgation of the War against the Elderly and the disabled he has in fact participated.  In particular we want to know why Larkin and the IARDC was so upset with the Call for an Honest, complete and comprehensive Investigation.   We want to know why Barbara Stone was jailed for being a good daughter.   We want to know why Gloria Sykes’ insurance settlement was literally stolen from her.   We want to know why *******

Dear  Ms Denison,
Thank you for your email. May I suggest that you helped make my point. The corrupt professionals you reference can only be successful because they are trusted.
I want it known that in the 33 years that I have operated and   maintained  my private practice, neither I nor any of my associates have never sought to be appointed as a guardian, guardian ad litem or conservator. I have also never acted an executor. I have always acted as he lawyer advocating for my client.
Elder abuse is a scourge that our society needs to eradicate. Unfortunately the Elder Justice Act has been grossly underfunded as a large number of  conservative members of Congress believe  that elder abuse should be a handled as a family issue without government intervention.

Dear Mr. Bahrawy;

My blog and most of the focus on what we do is not elder abuse from individual members of the public, but on the professionals that prey on the elderly–probate attorneys, professional GAL’s, tied in service providers that bill but are not needed but do not perform, guardianships by non relatives that deplete the estate and are not wanted by the alleged ward, guardianships without jurisdiction–no summons or complaint to the alleged ward and family.

These situations cause millions of dollars to fall off inventories and accountings.

Further, the “symptoms” you report are common in nursing homes where wards are placed against their will and homes are sold–are de regiueur in for profit nursing homes in Illinois.

The problem isn’t so much an individual spouse that is elderly that neglects, or a child that neglects to ensure safety, food, medicine, etc. for aging mom and dad, but it’s mostly our own probate system, I have found that causes the problem, and since it’s “professionals” that are involved they know how to take the money and run and cover their tracks.

Sykes–$1 million missing in gold coins, no jurisdiction, no summons or complaint, advance directives ignored by tied in court; Wyman– husband wanted to get rid of wife and concocted a deal with probate attorney Sharon Rudy to place mom in worst nursing home in Rockford where she was beaten and sexually abused near daily and the court granted guardianship without jurisdiction first–summons and complaint (read his book), Fracke – placed in nursing home against his will, millions in real estate not rented out for 2 years by professional guardian, hip problems not investigated by guardian after constant complaints by him and family, court ignores (to be published today on my blog), Alice Gore had 29 gold onlays mined from her after she was isolated first from 20 friends and family for 10 months, Alice Gore took “too long to eat” in nursing home so they put in feeding tube, etc., etc. the list goes on (see my blog).

Those are the most disgraceful, insulting cases there are and authorities refuse to investigate, no action is taken against the actors, except for the embarrassment from my blog.

The few cases the public sees–a spouse that is elderly, a child that is neglectful of his or her duties–those are rare and not much of a problem compared to many, many cases my blog and supporters see each and every day.  NASGA and Probate Sharks blogs and my blog currently work together in this fight to publish and expose, publish and expose because the authorities do NOTHING.  Our own ARDC or Atty Discipline Commission does nothing at best, and at worst goes after any attorney that exposes the corruption.

The media won’t publish because they are threatened with lawsuits from powerful judges and attorneys.

The only attorneys I know that will speak out against the corruption are myself, Ken Ditkowsky (suspended for 4 years for telling the truth about Sykes), Mr. Amu (suspended for 3 years for telling the truth about the Law Division judges) Tom Gearhart and myself who is awaiting my discipline from the ARDC for telling the truth about Sykes and other horrendous cases such as Gore, Bedin, Spera, Wyman, Sykes, Drabik, Tyler–all horrendous, unresolved and uninvestigated cases.

thank you for listening.

may I publish your original email on my blog?

Subject: Re: Read last line…to all of us who tried to report our story of – Abuse, Neglect, Financial Exploitation

Excellent information. However it is important to remember 2 important facts 1. most elder abuse is perpetrated by someone the elder knows and trusts, and 2. financial institutions are potentially on the front line when it comes to reporting suspected elder financial exploitation . Yet, unfortunately. many  financial institutions fail to recognize both their liability in failing to report suspected financial exploitation and their customer service responsibility to report suspected elder financial exploitation.

I believe it is going to take a mega lawsuit to get financial institutions to recognize that it is in their  interests to report elder financial exploitation.

Three Indisputable Facts about Elder Abuse:
Other than the victim’s age, elder abuse is a CRIME which is indiscriminate in choosing who it strikes,  Factors such as one’s socio-economic status, gender, race, ethicity, educational background and geographic location do not provide an impregnable barrier against its broad, horrible reach.
Elder abuse victims often live in silent desperation, unwillinging to seek assistance because they
unfortunately believe their cries for help will go unanswered and they fear retaliation from their abusers.  Many remain silent to protect abusive family members from the legal consequences of their crimes or are too embarrassed to admit that they have fallen victim to predators.  Others fear that no one will believe them – chalking up their allegations to the effects of old age.
Thus, it may take the courage of a caring family member, friend or caretaker to take action when the victim may be reluctant.
With your vigilance, care and cooperation, elder abuse can be stopped and its perpetrators arrested and prosecuted.  In the past four years alone, social service and law enforcement resources have expanded dramatically to meet the growing need.  Help is available.
REMEMBER:  If you suspect abuse, report it!
Confused or extremely forgetful
Helpless or angry
Hesitant to talk freely
Isolation of an elder is an insidious tool used by many abusers.  Accomplished with the systematic exclusion of all real outside contact, the elder victim is eventually driven to distrust
friends, doctors and even close family members.  Ultimately, the elder victim becomes a pawn –
manipulated into trusting only the abuser.
Family members or caregivers have isolated the elder, restricting the elder’s contact with others, including family, visitors, doctors, clergy or friends.
Elder is not given the opportunity to speak freely or have contact with others without the caregiver being present.
Physical assault
Sexual assault
Unreasonable physical constraint
Prolonged deprivation of food or water
Inappropriate use of a physical or chemical restraint of psychotropic medication
NEGLECT includes:
Failure to assist in personal hygiene
Failure to provide clothing and shelter
Failure to provide medical care
Failure to protect from health and safety hazards
Failure to prevent malnutrition or dehydration
Self neglect
Verbal assaults, threats  or intimidation
Subjecting an individual to fear, ISOLATION or serious emotional distress
Withholding of emotional support
The existence of any ones or more of these does not necessary mean that abuse has occurred.
Instead, treat them as signs that diligent attention or investigation is needed.
Uncombed or matted hair
Unkempt or dirty
Poor skin condition or hygiene
Patches of hair missing or bleeding scalp
Any untreated medical condition
Malnourished or dehydrated
Foul Smelling
Torn or bloody clothing or undergarments
Scratches, blister, lacerations or pinch marks
Unexplained bruises or welts
Burns caused by scalding water, cigarettes or ropes
Injuries that are incompatible with explanations
Any injuries that reflect an outline of an object, for example, a belt, cord or hand
Any person who suspects that abuse of an elder has occurred should report it.  When in doubt, always err on the side of caution and report.
Abuse can continue and often ESCALATES it there is NO INTERVENTION.  Known or suspected
cases of abuse should be reported to the appropriate agencies or to local law enforcement.
I tried my hardest.   All I heard this is a family matter (law enforcement, this is a sister vs. sister (my first attorney)….
Intervention can often save the assets, health, dignity or even the LIFE of an elder.
If a known or suspected incident of elder abuse has occurred in a long-term care facility, the report should be made to the Long-Term Care Ombundsman, the local law enforcement agency or the Bureau of Medi-Cal Fraud and Elder Abuse.
If abuse has occurred anywhere other than in a facility, reports should be made to the local county Adult Protective Services agency or to the local law enforcement agency.
The reporting person is protected from both criminal and civil liability.

Subject: Organizing talkshows into a media force and rallying point for honest judiciaries and public accountability

Strategic thinking to turn a talkshow into a rallying point for those who have experienced judges’ unaccountability and consequent riskless wrongdoing, and who can implement a realistic plan of action to expose judges’ wrongdoing, outrage the public, and cause it to make such wrongdoing a decisive issue of the mid-term and presidential elections From a talkshow to a civic movement that brings about public servants’ accountability to We the People:

A. An anecdote that shows a talkshow’s potential
for empowering the People

  1. The following anecdote provides a realistic basis for a strategy that shows how a talkshow host and guests on a show dedicated to the issue of judges’ unaccountability(* >jur:21§A) and consequent riskless wrongdoing(* >jur:5§3) can turn what normally is a one-off event into a series of shows and then a regular program that serves as a venue for ever more judicial wrongdoing victims to rally and gradually grow into a civic movement that asserts.

2. “[1] This is how Author Larry Hohol’s homepage, www.TheLuzerneCountyRailroad.com, describes his talk with Host Sue Henry as part of a Barnes & Noble Author Event about his book The Luzerne County Railroad on judicial corruption in Pennsylvania: “The scheduled 20 minute appearance was extended to two hours after the switchboard lit up solid with phone calls from listeners”.

3. It is quite rare for media stations to throw off their carefully matched schedules of shows and sponsors to respond on the fly to even overwhelming audience reaction to their current show. That this happened demonstrates that even within the limited geographic reach of an FM station, i.e., WILK-FM, 103.1, his story of judicial abuse of power and betrayal of public trust stroke a cord with the audience. This experience supports the reasonable expectation that people elsewhere would react likewise to similar accounts because judges have been allowed to engage in such conduct with impunity long enough to have victimized and outraged many people everywhere. They have become Judges Above the Law.”

4.  This anecdote with my comment on it appears in my study of the Federal Judiciary titled Exposing Judges’ Unaccountability and Consequent Riskless Wrongdoing: Pioneering the news and publishing field of judicial unaccountability reporting.*

All (parenthetical) blue text references herein are keyed to the several parts and pages in that file. This article is at * >ol:146.








5. A leader giving direction out of a problem, not a beggar asking for pity

a. You, Advocates of Honest Judiciaries, should use your time on a talkshow to make a professional presentation of the subject rather than of your personal cases. It should appeal to the most people in the audience because it explains the underlying circumstances and forms of judges’ wrongdoing so that as many individuals in the audience as possible feel that you are enlightening their understanding of a most confusing situation:

b.They went to court for justice, but came out abused. They will feel thankful to your for reassuring them that they did not do anything wrong so that it was not their fault. It was the judges who took advantage of them.

c. Compare that approach of giving to the audience to the one where you concentrate on the details of your personal experience and demand that the audience give you their time and attention to show interest in your case and in addition give you their support. This is the attitude of beggars preying on the audience’s pity.

d. You and your colleagues are leaders. You take people to a new understanding of their predicament and show the way for them to deal with it under your guidance. This requires strategic(ol:6) thinking to craft a concrete and realistic plan of action.

6. Appearance segments: problem presentation,

plan of action, audience reaction

a. You can conceive your appearance in three well-defined, purposeful, and integrated segments.

b. Scene setup: presenting causes and forms of judicial wrongdoing

1. Connivance between politicians and judges: At the root of judicial wrongdoing is the connivance between judges and politicians. Politicians help put on the bench people of the same ilk as themselves. They recommend, nominate, confirm, appoint, endorse, donate to, and campaign for, judicial candidates on whom they have something and who will never forget to whom they owe their office.

2. From those judges politicians expect that they at the very least uphold the legislation that they have passed or will pass to enact their political agenda; and that they be lenient toward the politicians if on charges of their own corruption they have to appear in court before those judges or their peers.

3. For their part, judges depend on politicians to be reelected or elevated to a higher court, for they do not have the power to promote their own to a higher court. They are connected by a mutually beneficial relation that is essentially inimical to the fair and impartial application of the law to Joe Schmock, the kiosk on the corner, and you, one-time, run-of-the-mill parties from whom judges cannot expect any problem, never mind any benefit.

4. The question whether appointing, electing, or other form of selecting judges is preferable should be left unanswered. At this point, the only concern is to expose the nature and gravity of judges’ wrongdoing and their practice of it in such widespread, routine, and coordinated fashion as to constitute their and their judiciary’s institutionalized modus operandi. This should outrage the public and stir it up to force politicians to investigate and hold judges accountable and undertake reform.

a. Pervasive secrecy: Judges operate in pervasive secrecy by holding all their adjudicative, administrative, policy-making, and disciplinary meetings behind closed doors. Such pervasive secrecy breeds abuse and ensures their riskless wrongdoing. What is not known cannot be controlled. Uncontrolled power is the hallmark of ‘absolute power, the one that corrupts absolutely’28, 32.

b. Retaliation of judges: Judges can retaliate against politicians that authorize or allow investigations against them by declaring their laws unconstitutional17a or interpreting them in disregard of their black letter or intent. the power of retaliation that judges wield against politicians who allow investigations against wrongdoing judges to be conducted. In addition, judges retaliate through many forms of chicanery, petit forms of harassment or disregard of procedural requirements that can doom a case and exhaust a party financially and emotionally(Lsch:17§C). This is judicial power wielded as a sword.

c. Forms of wrongdoing: Judges gain material213(jur:27§2), professional69(56§§e-f), and social benefits(62§g; a&p:1¶2nd) from their wrongdoing. This is judicial power wielded as a spoon.

d. Laying out a concrete and realistic plan of action

In this segment, you can briefly describe what you propose to do to establish a fundamental principle underlying the exposure of judges’ wrongdoing

In a democracy, We the People are the source of all public power and the masters of all public servants, including judges, who are hired to perform services for the benefit of the People and are accountable to their masters for their performance. The People did not entrust, and it is unreasonable even to think that they would ever have entrusted, a portion of their power to servants who in turn would make themselves immune to accounting to their masters for their exercise of such power.

e. Hence, you can state that your objective is to bring about judicial reform based on transparency, accountability, discipline, and liability to compensate the victims of judges’ wrongdoing(Lsch:10¶6).

f.  Those principles can be implemented through citizen boards of judicial accountability and discipline(jur:160§8).

5.  Your and the audiences’ experience of judges’ wrongdoing

a. Your experience to illustrate different categories of wrongdoing

b. Each of you and your colleagues can briefly describe, in two minutes or less, a different kind of judicial wrongdoing experience had by you or another person, such as:

i.  foreclosure on mortgages;

ii.  execution of wills

iii. handling of criminal cases and sentencing;

iv. dismissal of complaints against judges

v. appointment of guardians for children or the elderly;

vi. divorce cases involving custody of children or partition of matrimonial assets

c. Take calls from the public

i.  Then the host can open the line for him to take calls from those in the audience who want to give a brief account of their experience with wrongdoing judges. You and your colleagues can comment on it as appropriate to try to highlight what is the most important feature: patterns of wrongdoing that point, not to individual rogue judges, but rather to coordination between judges who thereby make their wrongdoing more riskless, effective, and profitable (jur:122§§2-3)

2.  Using the talkshow to appear as professionals and leaders

Appearing on a talkshow is a great opportunity for you and your colleagues to demonstrate that the problem is not with you: You are not a bunch of sore losers in court; you are not ‘disgruntled litigants’ who have nothing to offer but the hot air of your bumbling pro se handling of your own cases in court.

3. Rather, you are professionals. You have studied the problem and understand its causes and forms: Judges who are held unaccountable by politicians and media people much less courageous than the host(jur:81§1). As a result, they engage in riskless wrongdoing that benefits themselves and a clique of insiders.

4. Neither you nor your colleagues can wing it. To begin with, you should only take to the meeting with host two or three of the most articulate, self-controlled, and knowledgeable people. If you take more, everybody will want to put in their piece of performance and you end up with a discordant mob of people whining about their personal problems. It will make a terrible impression.

5. Remember, this is not an opportunity for you or your colleagues to vent your frustration and anger at the judges.

6. Rather, this is an occasion for you and your colleagues to show to the host that you are a group of highly polished civic movement leaders. You are people who can attract the attention of the thousands and thousands of people out there who have been victimized by judges but who can do little more than scream the pain of the injustice that they have suffered.

a. Thus, be professional.

b. Hold yourself to high standards of professionalism.

c. Make a highly organized and informative presentation of the issue. Practice your roles!

d. Discard personal trivia and choose content that will inform, outrage, and stir up into action the largest audience.

e. Show that you are capable of leading a movement to coalesce all victims of wrongdoing judges into a civic movement. The Tea Party is precedent therefor. However, your main concern is not lower taxes, but rather Equal Justice Under Law administered by judges accountable to We the People.

D. What the talkshow host stands to gain

1. new audience to be tapped and developed

2. At the meeting with the host, you should convince him that there is an untapped audience who can regularly listen to his program and to you and your colleagues. The passionate commitment of that audience in search for justice can attract sponsors. The latter may be regular commercial advertisers or civil rights organizations and foundations willing to underwrite his program. You need to show that you are business people.

3. You show concern for the host’s money-making needs and he takes care of your need to establish an avenue of communication with the public through which the latter can also communicate with you. This is part of strategic thinking. This audience can also express themselves on a website opened by the host and you that can be developed into a money-making center by selling advertisement and receiving donations. You need money to spread your message widely, cover travel expenses, organize presentations and conferences, etc.

4.Launching a generalized media investigation of judicial wrongdoing.

5. The host together with your support can contact journalists that to let them know there is a story worth investigating and an audience avidly awaiting their reports: the story of judges’ wrongdoing. This work needs your leadership.

6. Eventually, it can become a self-reinforcing process because the more the audience share their experience of judicial wrongdoing victimization and journalists report their findings, the more public outrage will be provoked and the stronger the demand will be for more investigation and reports.

A. That is how you can launch a Watergate-like generalized media investigation of judges’ wrongdoing. It can be guided by a query with a proven devastating impact in that it caused the resignation of President Nixon in 1974 and the incarceration of all its White House aides(jur:4¶¶10-14). It can be reformulated thus:

1. What did President Obama and the Supreme Court Justices know about Justice Sotomayor’s wrongdoing –suspected by The New York Times, The Washington Post, and Politico- with the complicity of the other justices, judges, and staff of the Federal Judiciary, and when did they know it?

2. Consider the case of Former Arizona Superior and Appellate Court Judge and Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor and the alleged corruption in Arizona courts144d

3. Hold out the prospect that the public outrage provoked by the audience’s experiences and the journalists’ findings can turn judicial wrongdoing and reform into a dominating issue of public debate that be-comes decisive of the impending mid-term election campaign, which will lead right into the primaries and the 2016 presidential election campaign. An outraged public can force politicians to:

a. take a public, unambiguous stand on judges’ wrongdoing;

b. call for official investigations of judges’ wrongdoing

c. undertake judicial legislated(jur:158§§6-7) judicial reform that imposes concrete duties of transparency, accountability, discipline, and liability on judges and their judiciary to compensate their victims.

There is no doubt that your meeting with the host and eventually with other media people like him offer a great opportunity to turn it into a multiplier of your presentation to the public and journalists of the causes and forms of judicial wrongdoing and the need for reform. It can be the beginning of the formation of a civic movement that forces politicians to undertake such reform and holds judges accountable: the People’s Sunrise(ol:29).

You can be the leader in building with hosts and journalists a Coalition for Justice that multiplies those presentations.

I look forward to hearing from you all and in light of the facts discussed at ol:19§D, will appreciate it if you would acknowledge receipt of this email.

Dare trigger history!(jur:7§5)…and you may enter it.

Sharing from a Probate Victim–the Frake case

Dear Readers;

Since it is entirely rare I get to share with you a letter from a probate victim to a court, I wanted to especially thank the Frake family for allowing me to do this and they encourage others to do the same.

The letter can be found here and after reading all of this, ask yourself, why is the probate court allowing James Stouffer to visit with Allen Frake at all?


Note the allegations in the case of missing money, false testamentary documents, wrongful actions, coercion, duress, etc. and the family’s objections to Stouffer’s visiting AF at all.

And a special thanks to Mike Messner, nephew for writing this and for sharing it with us all.


Free Speech is a must for College Campuses

And in the style of Jerome Larkin and managing Illinois Attorneys, we have the following new article:

Students passing out Constitution say Southern Oregon University threatened them

By United Press International October 17, 2014 11:56 am
Print    Tell a Friend    

Text Size: A A A
Four students at Southern Oregon University claim they were threatened by campus officials while protesting the school’s free speech policies.
The students were passing out copies of the Constitution and asking for signatures on a petition to end SOU’s “free speech zone” policy, which limits protests to one spot on campus……
“[The students] were not forced to move to the free speech zone, nor were they prevented from continuing to hand out their literature,” said Ryan Brown, Southern Oregon University’s Head of Community and Media Relations……
In videos obtained by Campus Reform, director of university housing Tim Robitz can be heard asking the SCC students to move their protest elsewhere.
“I would very much like you to leave………”  he says in the video.
The university considers the spot where SCC was protesting a “residential area” because of its proximity to several dorms.
Robitz also can be heard telling the SCC students that he would prefer they explain both sides of the issue to the people they asked for signatures.
“When you open it up to free speech that means anyone anywhere can come on here and do that and that might create some other challenges for this campus that we’re not prepared to manage.”
I just had to publish the above 4 quotes because they are the acid that clearly was thrown to erode Free Speech as guaranteed by our US Constitution, and the University is allowing some petty bureaucratic satraps from giving the due full length and breath of our First Amendment the breathing room it deserved.
To ask a protestor to “present the other side” clearly does not get and does not care enough to understand the nature of the concept of free speech.  To be required to present the other side at best is giving credence to people too lazy to protest, and at worst it preserves the status quo and completely erodes the concept of free speech and free thinking.  Who wants to have forced speech or to think like someone else? And then just whom are you forced to think like? The university?  the goverment?  your mom?  the creepy guy down the street that always wears a parka in 80 degree heat?
from Ken Ditkowsky:
 Artificial restraints on the First Amendment Rights no matter how rationalized are illegal.   The University is aware of this and its sophomoric excuses in like of the recent Supreme Court decisions are inexcusable.   Most seriously, while the article does not indicate that this limit on Free Speech was not enforced as to policies that the University approves of, all too often the restriction is on something that is not politically correct.
The purpose of a University is to make well rounded individuals.   Teaching the core values of American society is not something that can be overlooked.    A core value is Free Speech and the right to advocate unpopular causes.    These students are standing up for their rights – Where is the 2nd oldest profession when it comes to their right of free speech and the First Amendment.    Larkin gets away with ‘covering up’ felonies by corrupt officials because the 2nd oldest profession does not have the courage to deal with our personal national socialists!    This obligation to a broader society is required to be understood by teenagers who wish to enter high school, but not known by lawyers earning six figure incomes.
Ken Ditkowsky

From Ken Ditkowsky on the Washington Post Article on my copyright suit

I read with interest your comments concerning Ms. Denison’s blog and the prosecution of her by Mr. Larkin and the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission.  Then I noticed that amongst your other accomplishments was you taught students about the First Amendment.
As you are probably aware, there has been a concerted effort by Mr. Larkin to silence Ms. Denison’s blog and lawyer complaints against the corruption in the Illinois Courts in reference to elder cleansing.  Elder cleansing being the railroading of a senior citizen (or disabled person) into a guardianship, the isolation of the disabled person from family, friends, and prior life, the systematic looting of the estate, and finally an involuntary assisted suicide of the victim.    Backed up by affidavits and investigation Ms. Denison and others have made demands for an Honest complete and comprehensive investigation by law enforcement of this American Holocaust.   (The GAO report to Congress and reports from all of the United States discloses that the assaults on the disabled and senior citizen community are epidemic.)
Your article deal with whether or not Ms. Denison had a copyright so as to prevent the IARDC from using the blog in evidence at her disciplinary proceeding.   It is my suggestion that based upon the recent Supreme Court of the United States decisions the Disciplinary Commission had no jurisdiction to attempt to interfere with Ms. Denison’s speech as a first principle.    See: Alvarez, Brown, Ashcroft, Synder, Citizens United, McCutcheon.
While I am not an intellectual property lawyer I cannot understand how the IARDC copying poems by Janet Phelan that were part of the Blog copyright could be considered as not an infringement.  I also cannot understand how it is not chilling and not a violation of 735 ILCS 110 et seq, the First Amendment, 18 USCA 4, 18 USCA 371 for any governmental agency to attempt to silence a blog dedicated to disclosing corruption especially in a State that has the reputation that Illinois enjoys.   A recent article pointed out that we are number 2 in the Nation and have a corruption tax of $3008 per capita.
While we are on the subject, even though Larkin in his effort at censorship (using the IARDC as a vehicle) claims that statements are untrue, not one of the statements contained in the blog could be proven to be untrue.   Every statement made is verified by either the record in the Sykes case 09 P 4585 (Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois) or by affidavits of the people who have actual knowledge.    In addition on the blog are videos taken of Mary Sykes that demonstrate unequivocally that the suggestion as to her incompetency was grossly exaggerated.    (Mary prior to the appointment of a guardian did her own banking and her own audit disclosed that the person appointed as her guardian had stolen $4000.00 from her.   Mary went to the Courthouse and sought an order of protection.   This order of protection was shunted aside to appoint the person accused of the theft as Mary’s guardian).
As you are aware as a Constitutional Lawyer, guardianship has the potential to deprive an elderly and/or disabled person of some basic Constitutional Rights.    Thus, just about every State in the United States by statute has delegated to the Courts only such jurisdiction as might be necessary to reasonably accommodate the ward so that the Ward can enjoy the full fruits of American Citizenship.   Similarly Congress in enacting title 2 of the Americans with Disabilities Act has written into law a mandate to public institutions including the Courts to make the reasonable accommodation.
Thus, our Court have translators, ‘signors,’ wheel chair ramps and a host of other procedures set up strictly to ‘reasonably accommodate’ the disabled.   The Regulations are very specific and prohibit a shifting of costs or the excuse that making the reasonable accommodation is too expensive.
The key words are:  “reasonable accommodation”
Putting this situation into perspective, abusive guardianship’s are not reasonable accommodation!    Thus, when the Court sat on its hands and allowed Alice Gore’s mouth to be prospected for its gold filings, such was not a reasonable accommodation.   How then does the Court determine what is a ‘reasonable accommodation?’    Every state places a strong burden of proof upon the petitioner who seeks a guardian.   Not only does by statute the petitioner have to prove that the elderly person is incompetent, but the extent and nature.   Thus, the limitation of guardianship in Illinois found at 755 ILCS 5/11a – 3 (b) is accommodated.
In the Mary Sykes case and in thousands of other cases that found their way into the Courts (across the Nation) the statutory delegation of jurisdiction is ignored and Guardianship means “open season.”   Taking the Mary Sykes case as an example, Illinois has Procrustean due process standards. (see 755 IlCS 5/11a -10)   The common=law record in Sykes is very clear in demonstrating that these standards were almost totally ignored.  (Ergo – railroading of Mary)   Nowhere in the record is there any indication that there was a scintilla of evidence presented to the Court by any qualified person as to 1) Mary’s incompetence, and 2) the extent and nature.
Nevertheless, Mary was herded off, isolated from her loved ones and her former life including her younger siblings, her younger daughter, her friends, her neighbors, her garden club, her church etc.   No only was Mary physically removed, but, one of the guardian ad litem complained that Mary was agitated when she had contact with her prior life.  The Court then required supervised visitation of Mary.
I submit to you that agitation would be expected from any competent individual subjected to this outrage.  Putting it mildly – only a stone would not exhibit agitation and using a normal reaction as an excuse for isolation is unthinkable abuse. Indeed, the Americans with Disabilities Act has been violated and a felony committed! In these elder cleansing cases this is only the beginning!
The primary objective of the guardianship is the looting of the estate.   Mary had an estate that her younger daughter has estimated at 1.5 million dollars plus some valuable real estate.  Included in this estate was a gold coin collection valued at about a million dollars.    This coin collection happened to be in a safety deposit box in the name of Mary and her younger daughter.  (see Gloria Sykes affidavit).   Not one coin was inventoried; however, the guardian’s pecuniary situation improved from being a chronic insolvent with a unemployed husband to that of a person having the affluence to host lavish parties, display expensive jewelry and personal property, and do attractive remodeling to her home.
Mary’s home prior to the guardianship had an appraisal of approximately $700,000; however it was sold for less than 1/2 of the prior appraisal.  The sale was accomplished by a surrogate of one of the politically elite.
Mary’s sister and younger daughter (and others) have complained to the Mr. Larkin and the IARDC concerning the conduct of the two guardian ad litem, the judge and other lawyers.  The Communication from Larkin was quite interesting.   Mr. Larkin made his position very clear.   It was perfectly all right to steal Mary’s money, but complaining about it was ethically challenged.   (I was a complainer and I received a four year suspension.  Had I participated in the theft and became the scapegoat six months to a year would have been a maximum suspension. My crime was writing to the Attorney General of the United States).
Larkin’s aiding and abetting of these felonies associated with the elder cleansing of Mary Sykes, Alice Gore and a host of other victims taxes the patience of the families of the victims who every day are reminded that they and the disabled (elderly) victims are being denied the core principles of America and the lawyers that they seek help from are being intimidated by the very organization that advertises that it was formed to protect the public from dishonest lawyers (including those who were black robes).
For the record – as I have practice law for over fifty years not only was I not intimidated by I have taken up the fight against this assault on the core values of America as essentially a full time endeavor.    These core values are too precious to allow miscreants such as Larkin to destroy.   It is not a reasonable accommodation of a disability to destroy the life of the elderly or disabled person, loot his/her estate, and then provide them with a final solution.
Unfortunately, the saga of Mary Sykes is repeated almost daily.   It has occurred all over the United States with some instances so obscene that the word justice has become an oxymoron.   Florida with its guardians for profit has allowed its miscreants to punish objection to elder cleansing in the case of Barbara Stone with criminal proceedings!
Let me put the following proposition to you.   What kind of person would JoAnn Denison or I be if we stayed silent and did not report and/or attempt to disclose the American Holocaust aided and abetted by Jerome Larkin acting in concert with  ******.   (I can fill in names if you or law enforcement wants them.  However, they are all on the JoAnne Denison blog, NASGA, Probate Sharks **** blogs.    Ms. Denison is a hero for standing up to felons who prey on the elderly and disabled including those employed by the Illinois Attorney Registration and Distortion Commission f/n/a IARDC.


Well, this blog made the Washington Post, even if my copyright case was dismissed, Ken, Janet and Gloria can still sue for copyright infringement and so can many others of you.


My comment:

I am the attorney in question, and I can assure you that I am not the only one writing about the Corruption in the Mary G Sykes case. The blog can be found at http://www.marygsykes.com and http://www.justice4every1.com.  Since beginning the blog, we have had numerous people provide information, assist in an investigation actively blocked in the court by the attorneys involved (Peter Schmeidel, Harvey Waller, Adam Stern and Cynthia Farenga).  Judge Stuart “suddenly retired” from the bench after she lied at my trial and the transcript was changed.
This blog and the writing of myself and probably more than 50 other individuals are crucial to stopping corruption in the State of Illinois where we have had more governors in club Fed Med than all the states combined.
The 18th floor of the Daley center in the probate division is one of the most notorious and troubled areas there is  No lawyer (except myself, Mr. Ken Ditkowsky and Mr. Lanre Amu) will speak out and stop the corruption.
And for all of you that say journalism doesn’t make a difference, I note that many troubled attorneys are now rarely seen on the 18th floor of the Daley center.  And the judge in charge when Alice Gore was isolated for 10 months and 29 gold teeth (onlays) were removed from her mouth by a tied in dentist “suddenty retired”.  The judge in the Sykes case recently and “suddenly retired.”
I AM one of the few attorneys making a difference and it’s through the blog.  What a bunch of weenies you all are is all I can say.  I am not in flames  I AM THE FLAME.  The Washington Post journalists should be in awe of my simple blog and my followers to work hard, very hard to stop corruption in its tracks by simply talking and publishing about it.

From Ken Ditkowsky–the status of Elder Cleansing in affidavit form

he Isolation of the Elder Cleansing victim from family, friends, and past life.

As Florida victim’s families are writing their affidavits that will be submitted to law enforcement as complaints against an assorted group of corrupt judges, their appointees, various lawyers, and those who had and are currently aiding and abetting the felonies associated with elder cleansing, the excuses that are advanced to curtail social intercourse between the families and the designated victims.

The common trend is to suggest that there is an interference with the ‘order’ of things by the family members who protest the isolation, the usurpation of the liberty and property Constitutional Rights of victim and family, and the studied and systematic deprivations of the victim to hasten death.      In each case wherein ‘elder cleansings’ are the goal of the miscreants guardian makes some form of application to the Court to bar or punish the vocal protesting family member.   Retaliation for protest is swift for not only the protester but the victim as well.

The Statutory authorization for guardianship recognizes that guardianship is not benign, but an active intrusion on the core Rights of American citizenship of a targeted elderly or disabled person.   The guardian is thusly delegated only those rights which are absolutely necessary to reasonably accommodate the deficiencies that the disability has created in the ward.    In this regard the Court is only able to obtain jurisdiction when and if a petitioner who alleges a disability can prove by clear and convincing evidence that the ward has a disabling disability that needs reasonable accommodation as a starting point.    The petitioner must prove the disability and its extent and nature.   Then and only then can to court determine who, if anyone, should address the disability and manner in which it is to be addressed.

Corrupt Judges and their appointees regularly ignore the Constitutional protections afforded by the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendment and ravage the estate with generous remunerations for a host of appointees and their attorneys.    In Illinois a guardian ad litem is appointed ostensibly to be the eyes and ears of the Court.    In the Sykes case Cynthia Farenga and Adam Stern were appointed.   They refused to report to the Court a large number of emergency room trips by Mary Sykes including one that the plenary guardian admitted was caused by neglect.    In point of fact it is fair to suggest that they and Attorney Peter Schmiedel acted as a cadre of attorneys for the plenary guardian.   In an effort to prevent me from investigating the Sykes case they filed a Sanction Petition against me knowing that the Court had no jurisdiction over me.    The corrupt judge entered the sanction finding against having actual knowledge of a lack of jurisdiction.    (I had to address the matter before the Appellate Court of Illinois to vacate the sanction).    In the Gore case, Guardian ad Litem Miriam Solo has been accused of orchestrating the appointment of a plenary guardian who was herself disabled and had a guardian appointed for herself.    (Gore is the case in which 1.5 million dollars disappeared and Mrs. Gore’s teeth were prospected for their Gold filings.)

The key in just about every case is the isolation of the elderly and/or disabled victim from their prior lives.     The most common excuse accepted by the Court for this act of abuse is that certain protesting members of the victims’ family are agitating the disabled and elderly victim.    The Court then in horror enters orders that restrict contact between the loving family and the elderly or disabled victim.   Thus, when a Barbara Stone observed the horror that had befallen her mother she was ripe to be charged with bogus criminal conduct that the Court knew or should have known was not only a violation of Federal and State law, but a crime against humanity.     Cynthia Farenga complained that Mary Sykes was agitated after talking to her younger daughter.    Similarly, excuses were found of a similar nature to prevent Mary’s younger siblings from even having telephone contact.   Ditto in the Gore case and hundreds (if not thousands) of others.

Agitation of the elderly or disabled victim is an interesting concept.     Why would an elderly or disabled person not be agitated by being separated from his/her family, friends and prior life?    The elderly person might have a bit of a hearing loss and even a bit of memory loss, but, to lose one’s freedom and be subject to the whim and caprice of a 3 rd person is quite a devastating situation.   Reasonable accommodation for a hearing loss is not appointment to two guardian ad litem, a plenary guardian, and rape of the estate and the incarceration of the elderly person – it is a hearing aid!

A basic concept of human existence is “for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.”     Thus, it is not unusual that medications have side effects.    One of the most common side effects is a malady that interferes with some prior activity.    Pain, memory loss, and other intrusive side effects are all together more common to the aging population.     It is indeed an agitating event to recognize that you lost your freedom because you took a prescribed medication and the cure is worse than the disease.

To give you an example of the side effects work.    Several decades ago, I had a corneal transplant.   To ward off rejection I was given a commonly used medication.    Among the side effects listed on the label of the medication was manic behavior.    Another was Depressive behavior.     For about a month the drug had no visible side effects and then very manic behavior set in.    I was happy as lark!    Pollyanna had nothing on me; however, without warning and extremely suddenly I woke up one morning thinking of suicide.   Fortunately for me I recognized that something was wrong and got off the medication.    The termination of the medication restored me to the equilibrium that I enjoyed prior.     Had I not been shocked by the fact that I had an episode that was foreign to me – such could have been an excuse to elder cleanse me.    You can bet your bottom dollar I would have been agitated!

Nevertheless the corrupt judges are ignoring the facts and in most cases not holding the type of hearings that are necessary to determine if 1) there is a disability that needs attention and 2) the extent and nature of the disability.     It is tragic that there are judges who are so corrupt that they do not take their responsibilities seriously due either to incompetence or unauthorized remuneration.   It is tragic that these judges appoint as guardians their cronies to positions that inherently deprive the elderly and the disabled of their constitutionally guaranteed rights, privileges and immunities for profit.    It is even more tragic that there are lawyer disciplinary groups such as the Illinois Attorney Registration and Distortion Commission administered by Jerome Larkin that openly and notoriously obstruct justice, aid and abet, and act in concert with the miscreants in the quest for pecuniary wealth of the elderly and disabled.    It is tragic that health care funds are being stolen from Medicaid, Medicare and other State and Federal programs by these individuals.

The Holocaust directed at the elderly and the disabled cannot be effective if the Court enforce the Constitutional limitations on guardianship and the directives of the Americans with Disabilities Act.     The facade created by the disreputable for profit guardians and their corrupt fellows of needing to isolate the elderly and the disabled because family agitates the victim has to be addressed as a ‘red flag!’ depicting the discrimination of elder cleansing.

From a copyright firm–that infringes copyrights!

Here is the article, and here is my response


I asked to post in  nutshell, 1) the ARDC also infringed the copryights of Janet Phelan and Gloria Sykes who are award winning journalists and JP already has her book out “Exile” and the ARDC never bought a copy of that; 2) others have posted not expecting or giving the ARDC perission to use their creative writings either.

How do you explain the fact that these published and non published authors had their creative writings essentially stolen by the ARDC?  They did not give permission.  The ARDC did not buy their books, nor did they promise to even buy a future copy of movies, books and documentaries?

Further, no case law reporter puts copyrighted materials on a website, but the ARDC does just that.  It’s not transformative.  It’s just theft.

The ARDC copied 8000 pages of my works, and the valuable works of others, not paying one dime to anyone. The N.D. Ill. Judge St Eve just rubber stamped what they wanted and didn’t give a whit it was nothing but theft.

Not a one of the authors–Phelan, Gloria Sykes, myself, KKD, Rosanna Miller, John Howard Wyman, Dominic Spera, Janet and Delores Bedin, and many many other abused in probate, were just not paid at all for their stories or writings, but the ARDC took them all–far in excess of what they needed for trial and without regard to the suffering of these individuals.

But the kicker?  This professor also put on HIS blog, 4 of my proprietary images put into a header.  I paid $700 for the artworks in that header and he just steals them.  Never contacts me and never asks any permission.

I get it.  He is at a big lawfirm, I am nothing.  I make very little money, I struggle day to day to provide free or low cost legal services to those victims of civil and human rights violations and probate victims.

The publication of his article, and the kicker to steal my little bit of intellectual property (book and paintings) is just like a further kick in the stomach.

Please visit his website and leave a comment that what he says is wrong, dead wrong, and the probate victims are opposed to the theft of their works by the ARDC and now by a megal legal firm that has money and power.


PS —  You will note that I did not use the Foley and Hoag logo in this post to promote my blog, or their artwork.  Foley and Hoag are nothing but base infringers, don’t use them.  No morals, no ethics.

Does “no knock” really work and is it worth the life of a 19th month old baby

first some Halloween fun.  Now I used to make up masks like these for Halloween, but it scared the little kids, so now I just do “really strange” like a Katie Perry wig, silver skin and a sparkly blue dress and gold top hat and boa.  They giggle.  Little kids won.


Next for something Halloween scary and real:

A flash grenade thrown by police in Georgia left a 19 month old toddler fighting for his life when it was thrown into the crib to scare residents during a “no knock” raid on a house for guns, drugs and cash.  The result?  No guns, drugs or cash.  Normal family–now with $1 million in medical expenses.

I hope these police officers realize that the life of one toddler IS worth stopping the “no knock” nonsense.

Any idiot can turn in a false report, and now it can be done by text and emails.

Please pray for this family and that our (idiot) legislators realize that “no knock” simply does not work. The judges aren’t careful enough, and the police don’t have a clue, but then again, do any of us.  If you’re going to do something dangerous like that, you’d better be sure that you know there are no women and children around and that the perp has an actual sighting inside the house and the perp is judged more dangerous than the lives of others living inside the house.

That was not done.  Now the taxpayers have to pay for a stupid lawsuit and this family is perhaps ruined forever?  The perp?  A nephew that never went to that house anyway.


The venality of the situation defies description.  There was a time once when we valued the lives of women and children living in a home, now we have turned back into Neanderthals.

“No Rest For The Wicked… New Problems Detected At Berwyn Rehabilitation Center By Pearl Griffin on February 13th, 2009 Posted in Abuse In Chicago Nursing Homes & Other Communities Within Illinois

Days after the Chicago Tribune ran an investigative piece on Berwyn Rehabilitation Center, a new inspection report was released by the Illinois Department of Health demonstrating that the facility has a long way to go to improve conditions at the facility.  In an unannounced visit to the facility, state inspectors found six violations relating to nursing home care.  Among the conditions discovered by inspectors and cited in their report:
  • A resident with “a long reddened area” on the right cheek who received no attention from the staff four hours after a nursing home inspector brought the condition to the staff’s attention
  • The staff failed to inspect and treat open wounds.  Inspectors noted a large sore on the side of a woman’s mouth with dried blood, yet there was no intervention by the staff.
  • Faulty equipment.  For 10 days a  mechanical lift used to transport residents from their beds was not working.  Consequently, residents sat in their beds without being moved or showers for up to 10 days.
  • Improper administration of medication.  There were reports of the staff failing to provide pain medication as ordered by physicians and failing to timely administer medication.
A quick glance at the just the number of citations issued to Berwyn Rehabilitation Center, may appear as though the facility is making significant improvements.  Compared to a similar unannounced visit last year, when the facility had 29 violations– six violations this time around seems pretty good.  The reality is that the violations against this facility are not minor.  The violations indicate the staff at this facility is still not focused on correcting potentially dangerous conditions. Any of the above conditions cited to in the inspectors’ reports could prove life threatening if left unremedied.
Berwyn Rehabilitation Center is a for-profit nursing home located at 3601 South Harlem Avenue. The Centers for Medicare have rated the facility one-star out of a possible five.  The facility is owned by Eric Rothner, a manager of Berwyn Rehabilitation, LLC.”
From Joanne–
So, we know there are troubles with nursing homes in the Chicago area.  In the Thomas case, the judge is told Janie smells of urine, has not been bathed, and is left in the bathroom dazed and unattended.  What does she do?  Hand the case off to the OPG (Office of Public Guardian) where an “isolation order” is issued to caring family members. (prior post).  In the case of Allen Frake, he complains about hip pain for months, is apparently in a wheel chair after whatever happened to his hip, the family asks for an MRI and appropriate medical care, at the next court date, the appointed attorneys when confronted with the continuing request for an investigation, mumble something about how the nursing home doc sees residents once per month so there must not be a problem. When a continuing problem is reported and a further problem with suspected chemical restraints (drooling and confusion and lowering of the head) is reported, what does the judge do?  Send it back to the “guardian of the person” the same person that did not notice/did not care in the first place!
Freaking unbelievable.  And just how many Ill. governors do we currently have in prison? perhaps if we really want to make Ill. governors fearful of engaging in corruption we should threaten them with the punishment of probate court and an Illinois for-profit nursing home!

From Janet Phelan–games and tricks when she tries to file evidence of corruption in her case

As many of you know, Janet Phelan is a trust fund beneficiary, and like many cases stuck with crooked lawyers in crooked courts, tens of thousands of dollars fall off of her accountings.

Here is her filing:


As with other court room victims that approach Ken and I for advice, we tell them to write ASAP to the authorities (states attorneys and FBI) and news media and to the judges and lawyer’s disciplianary boards until justice is done.

But see the games they play with these issues and how it all appears to be rigged and tied in.  Why can’t Janet file without charge evidence of corruption and Fraud upon the Court by Attorney Eggbratten?  Isn’t this one of the most crucial issues today?  Integrity of the courts, judges and lawyers?  Is this a central feature of dozens, if not hundreds of blogs today?  YES, YES and more YES.

Allegations of corruption, lost funds and manipulation of accounts in probate should be given the highest priority by the courts.

George Cifu in the Probate Division denied receiving your or my emails. Furthermore, after his senior gave me permission to email the file, George told me it would not be accepted via email.

Furthermore, George is now saying (in contradiction to the information I was given by his senior and also his supervisor) that I may not apply for a waiver of fax filing fees (the waiver form was attached to the pleadings and filled out according to instructions).
I was able to get the fax sent again late in the afternoon yesterday. I am not terribly concerned at this juncture whether or not they say they receive it or whether or not they falsely deny my filing due to the waiver issue.  They have violated so many laws here that a few more isn’t going to faze me that much.
