From Ken Ditkowsky and Gloria Sykes–the cover ups continue

Posted with permission.  Please continue to pray for Gloria and her Mom and their family.  Gloria has been through far too much excruciating pain.

Dear Ken, and all CC’s and Bcc’s…

Today the U.S. Supreme Court announced a landmark decision which, grants equal protection and due process for a class of people we’ve labeled gay and lesbian – who like all of us have the right to love, associate and be with whomever he or she wants.  Similarly, I pledge today and moving forward, that all people, including the elderly and disabled should have the same equal protections under law and due process, and have the right to associate with whomever they want, including adult children as adult children of elderly or disabled,  should have equal protections under law and due process to associate with, right to love, and be with their parent or loved one who just happen to be elderly or disabled.   In sum, as gays and lesbians asked for dignity in the eyes of the law and today prevailed – I’m founding the Mary G. Sykes Foundation, Inc., will, in fact, be able to raise the funds we all need to further the cause, such as  ***.  Love must win when it comes to the overt discrimination against the elderly and disabled.

I was in this game because of the LOVE I have for my mother, and the LOVE she had for me and her sister, Yolanda.  Although my mother’s death was unfortunate and premature – she had miles to go and a long bucket list she was prevented from achieving—before she died, mother died for a good cause: I remain in the game in order to honor her.

In 1967 CBS news did a documentary titled, HOMOSEXUALS.  The network couldn’t get any sponsors or advertisers.  2 out of 3 American’s were disgusted by gay and lesbian  relationships – and so, men and women who LIVED and LOVED the same sex, hid their preferences.  I had a very dear friend who was gay and my parents, knowing this, treated him like they treated all of my friends, with great respect and love.  I never knew there was so much hate and discrimination alive then, and quite honestly, as I matured and became more independent, I never experienced the hate crimes, which were and continue to headline the media.   Love was never a ‘straight’ thing.  It was a human thing.  Today was a good day and the majority of justices, so called liberals – did what was right.  Equal justice prevailed today.  So much has changed in the last 50 years and today, no State can discriminate against a man or woman because of their sexual preference – because of the person they chose to love and associate with.

With this most historical decision today by the U.S. Supreme Court, and as important, the removal of the Confederate Flags that caused so much hate and hate crimes in the South, we, true advocates must stand together, arm and arm, and end Court sanctioned discrimination against the elderly and disabled, and the appointment of plenary GUARDIANSHIP  of elderly and disabled people: this conduct and actions of State agencies is not just violations of the Title II of the ADA, but also, HATE CRIMES  against a class of people who, not only lose all their rights protected under the Constitution to, among other rights, associate with, and love whomever they chose, but, like my mother, are intentionally isolated, over medicated, murdered, and in most cases, cremated and their wealth is distributed between the Cottage industry of attorneys who earn their living by preying on the elderly and disabled and abuse our judicial for personal financial gain, court appointed guardians, such as Carolyn Toerpe, and private institutions such as Silverado Memory Care Center(s) and Sunrise Senior Living, Inc. – as well as Hospice industry, and private medical professionals who get kickbacks.  It is time we  too progress forward arm and arm – no heroes, no agendas, no egos.

Guardianships are unconstitutional.  Who will join me and walk the talk of equal rights under law and STOP the use of our Probate courts and the appointment of guardians of Americas most vulnerable.  “Let America Be America Again, Let it be the dream it use to be.  Let it be the pioneer on the plan.  Seeking a home wher he himself is free.  America was never America to me.  Let America be the dream the dreamer dreamed.  Let it be that great strong land of love.  Where never kings connive nor tyrants’ scheme. Than any man be crushed by one above.  It was never America to me….” Langston Hughes, 1902 -1967.

There was no America for my mother the last 6 years.  This is a pain cut much deeper because Mary G. Sykes, is/was my mother and I know it was her LOVE for me and her sister Yolanda, that kept her strong and healthy for as long as she could and so, Carolyn Toerpe and her attorneys, Stern, Farenga, Schmiedel, et al, had no choice but to murder her ….

As my mother’s death marks not just a turning point in our history, it’s a reminder of the wrongful deaths of too many elderly and disabled people trapped in financially exploitive, abusive, discriminatory guardianship, where thus far, no person has been able to prevail under any Federal court and sadly, a bad pleading by Mr. Struck (Struck v. Cook County Public Guardian), a young man who himself had a disablility, only want to LOVE and associate with his mother who was under guardianship, is being cited, along with Sykes I and Sykes II U.S. District Court decisions – although very, very good pleadings – there was no America for my mother, for Annie’s mother, for Struck’s mother, for Rudy’s mother, for countless other loved ones who were wrongfully appointed plenary guardians and discriminated against.

Let me close by saying this.  For Cook County law enforcement, and the Naperville Police who elected to turn a blind eye to the truth, you now have an opportunity to do right.  For the people who have elected to do what you must to discredit me, now is your time to rethink your positions, and do the right thing.  And for the rest of you who have either elected to stay uninvolved, or simply didn’t understand, your contributions, whether volunteer, or monitory, or even just signing a petition, it’s time to step up.

To quote Mr. Hughes, “Say, who are you that mumbles in the dark.

And who are you that draws your veil across the stars?

I am the poor white, fooled and pushed apart,

I am the Negro bearing slavery’s scars.

I am the red man driven from the land,

I am the immigrant clutching the hope I  seek,

And finding only the same old stupid plan

Of a dog eat dog, of mighty crush of the weak.

I am the young man, full of strength and hope

Tangled in that ancient endless chain

Of profit, power, gain, of grab the land!

Of grab the gold! Of grab the ways of the satisfying need!

Of work the men!  Of take the pay!

Of owning everything for one’s own  greed!

I am the farmer, bondsman to the soil.

I am the worker sold to the machine.

I am the Negro, servant to you all.

I am the people, humble, hungry, mean –

Hungry yet today despite the dream,

Beaten yet today – O, Pioneers!

I am the man who never got ahead.

The poorest worker bartered through the years.

Yet I am the one who dreamt our basic dream.

In the Old World while still a serf of kings.

Who dreamt a dream so strong, so brave..

That even yet its mighty during dings

In every brick and stone, in every furrow turned

That’s made America the land it has become…


The question is?

Who wants to help create the America we all can live free?

Who wants to join me, and create an America where there are no Guardianships of people who are elderly or disabled people, and all people have equal protections under LAW and where Title II of the Americans With Disabilities Act is upheld and no person, elderly or disabled,– or their loved ones, are discriminated against. No one should be isolated or denied association with their loved ones(s) just because he or she is elderly or disabled.

The court sanctioned HATE CRIMES must stop now.

In my mother’s name, HELP ME CREATE A BETTER AMERICA …

Healthy Regards,

The allegations that Ms. Sykes makes are very serious.   They are consistent with not only events that have been alleged in other Illinois Probate cases, but, with other events that have occurred in the Sykes case 09 P 4585.    The very same misconduct has been ignored and ‘covered up’ by Jerome Larkin, Melissa Smart, Sharon Opryszek, Lea Black and others at the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission.    Pursuant to 18 USCA 4, 371, 241, 242, 1341 et al we have demanded an honest investigation.    As attorney misconduct has been noted herein pursuant to Rule 8.3 the IARDC has been notified.   The reaction has been for Mr. Larkin and his co-conspirators to file intellectually dishonest pleadings and prosecutions designed to cover up the criminal activities being perpetrated against Mary Sykes and others similarly situated.

I am forwarding this material to law enforcement and once again Demanding an HONEST INVESTIGATION OF THESE ENTIRE SITUATION.

This situation includes but is not limited to:

1) Mary Sykes 09 P 4585

2) the theft of Gloria Sykes’ claim proceeds from Kemper Insurance

3) the false imprisonment (chaining of Gloria Sykes) and the criminal intimidation of her by judicial officials.

4) the Alice Gore case

5) the hundreds of elder cleansing cases in the Probate Court

6) the ‘cover up’

7) the failure of the miscreants to inventory and report literally hundreds of millions of dollars of assets stolen from disabled estates – incluidng kickbacks to nursing homes etc.

8) the rampant violation of law by judicial officials and those acting in concert with them.

9) the cover up – and violations of State, Federal and Constitutional law.

10) the failure of attorneys and others employed at the IARDC to not disclose their assets as required by State Law for all public employees

11) ******

The breach of a fiduciary relationship is a taxable event and incurs State and Federal Tax liability.    A conspiracy creates joint and several liability including the tax liability.    Jerome Larkin and those who work in concert with them thus have joint and several liability for the millions of dollars stolen from these estates  – whether inventoried or not.    The use of the IARDC commission for illegal and nefarious purposes is unacceptable.

Democracy is not a spectator sport and is fragile.    The actions described by Ms. Sykes and others is a terrorist attack on America!   It cannot be tolerated any longer.

Subject: RE: The Cover -up – The letter that allegedly got Journalist and Investigative producer Gloria Sykes a ‘beating’ that the States Attorney of Cook County would not prosecute.

Dear All,

I recently located the email below that attached a copy of a letter/complaint I sent to the ARDC about attorneys Deborah Jo Soehlig and Peter Schmiedel.  Burried in the letter is a notation that I found the lack of the ARDC’s interest to investigate wrongdoers, such as Soehlig and Schmiedel, attorneys who misuse the judicial for their personal financial gain, was like the John Wayne Gacy case, where numerous parents and interested people filed complaints with the Chicago  Board of Education regarding Gacy, but all complaints went uninvestigated if not simply ignored and tossed in the trash.  WELL MY MOTHER SUDDENDLY DIED on May 23, 2015 at 2:47 a.m, and Peter Schmiedel was actively involved in covering up the cause of death, claiming she “died of natural causes because she was old” and of Alzheimer Disease.But now I ahead of the story.

On May 22, 2015, I received a phone call from Carolyn Toerpe: it was about 3 p.m. on Memorial Day Weekend. I was driving on Lake Shore Drive, just north of the City when my phone rang and I thought hard about not answering it — but I did, because I thought that it was my mother.  It was Toerpe who commanded that if I wanted to see my mother I had to be somewhere by 5 p.m., I couldn’t tell any other person, and by the way, “Mother took a turn for the worse”.  Naperville is a good 60-90 minute drive on a normal business day at 3 p.m. but on a Friday holiday weekend.  Toerpe text me the address: it was of Silverado Memory Care.

I arrived at 4:55 p.m., and leaving Shaggy in the car as I thought I’d have but 5 minutes with Mom, I was stopped by people at the front desk, who would not let me know the room number, but instead, had a young woman escort me back — the young woman had never met my mother, and was a “day social worker”.

When I arrived at “the room” the number on the room was concealed, and the room, dark.  I ran in to see my Aunt Yo and Kathie at my mother’s side: my mother’s sister Josephine at the foot of the bed.  Two or three strangers sitting or standing on the opposite side of the room next to another bed, where Carolyn Toerpe was sitting, and her husband Fred standing close by.  My mother laid, fully dressed, in the bed, with oxygen in her nose, but I thought she was dead.  I dropped my purse on a chair, and climbed in bed with my mother, and began to kiss her, and gently placed my hand on her cheek: She was breathing beautifully and showed no signs of death.  I placed my hand on my mother’s left hand and she squeezed it.  She then held my hand as I held hers, and I cried out, “What the hell is going on here?  I’m the POA of healthcare… ” and Toerpe cut me off saying, “Well, you know Gloria, Mother has dementia.” I argued back, “Dementia doesn’t put a person in a coma like state.  What medications are you giving her?”

At that point I looked at this white haired woman who stood stoic in the back of the room and asked her who she was. She told me she was the “Administrator” who “knows” my mother “well” and a “patient very special to” her.  I responded, “I don’t know you.  You don’t know my mother and please get out and leave family some private time”. She not only refused to leave, but two other people from the center came into the  room and stood or sat in the room, while Toerpe smirked at me: yep, Toerpe showing she was “in control”.

Looking around the room I noticed three family photographs hanging, or staged on two walls.  A picture with mom, dad, Toerpe and her husband and his two children above the bed, with a picture of Toerpe, me and our brother Edward when we were children and a wedding picture of mom and dad.  Nothing else appeared to belong to mother, except for her gym shoes, which looked as if they had been recently worn, and placed, as my mother would, near the bed but not in her way.  Mother didn’t have her wedding and engagement rings on, and didn’t have the 18 Ct gold chain and the many 14 or 18 ct gold pieces which she wore all the time and ever day.  Mom was wearing a brown turtle neck sweater and black slacks and white socks.  I checked her feet and ankles and noted no swelling: they were warm.  I continued to hold and stroke mother’s hand, and speak to her.  “Where are her hearing aids?” I asked.  The Administrator and the day social worker looked at one another and the day social worker said, “I know nothing about any hearing aids.”  I said, “Well, she has a pair of high end, digital hearing aids: find them.  Put them in so she can hear me.  Toerpe shook her head, “no”.

Kathie Bakken suggested we play mother’s favorite music, “Ave Maria”  I pulled out my IPhone and Kathie was checking her phone, when I noted Toerpe speaking to the Administrator who came over to me and told me to put my phone away. “I have an order from the court” she said.  And I replied, “I don’t give a damn about any orders from the court….”  I was told to put my IPhone away or I’d have to leave.  I responded, “You won’t even let my mother have any dignity or enjoyment, Carolyn” You are simply evil”. However, Kathie continued to look for mom’s favorite songs, and the Administrator stood near by, to make certain we couldn’t or didn’t take any photographs.  I placed Kathie’s phone close to mother’s good ear and all of a sudden, my Mother’s eyes began to move rapidly and she tried to speak, “I”, “I”, she said, and the Administrator announces that its time for me to go.  I said, “I am staying here as long as I want” to which the Administrator said, “Really, it’s time for you to go”.  I didn’t leave and we played songs for mother and twice more she tried to speak and squeeze my hand.  An hour and 30 minutes passed and Kathie reminded me I had Shaggy in the car and it was very warm outside.  I said I was going to bring Shaggy in and at first the social worker said it was ok but then the Administrator told me that since I didn’t bring him in when I came in, I couldn’t bring him in. I repeated that he was a service dog and that I didn’t think I had but 5 minutes with mother.  She said no and it was time for me to leave.

I kissed mom and told her that she should go and be with God and daddy and her son Edward, and her mother and father, and that she needed to get away from all this evil.  I told her I’ve tried everything and that I would continue to do whatever I could in her honor.  I told her I had to leave again, that Toerpe was forcing me to leave and then I kept crying and kissing her and telling her how much I loved her and I had to go.

The Administrator walked me put and as I approached the locked doors, I saw a family talking to an employee of the center and they were talking about placing their father in their care.  I said, “Do your homework. This is not a safe place for your loved one.  Do not place him here….”  And the Administrator threatened to call security, and I said, “I welcome you calling security.”  I made a purposeful scene and let the five or six people in the lobby know what the Administrator had done to my mother, and left by saying, “And they won’t even give my mother her hearing aids…imagine that?”

At 2:45 a.m. the next morning I woke with a stay and had this huge smile on my face.

At 8:30 am I called Silverado and asked about my mother and I was told that I had to call Carolyn Toerpe.

I spoke with Maryanne who told me to fax over the POA of healthcare and then she’d tell me anything I want to know.

At 10 a I faxed over the POA from Staples so I’d have a good record.

At about noon, I called when I got to Naperville and was told Maryanne was not there and the guy told me he got the POA and it’s a fraud and hung up.

At 1 p.m. I met Scott Evans at the Naperville Police and called 911.  An officer told me that he was very familiar with the case and that I was harrassing Toerpe.  I then said I wanted a standby police to get Hannah and the same officer met me at Toerpe’s home, that looked as if the place was vacant.  At about 3 p.m. Toerpe returned with Fred and parked the car in the driveway and said nothing to me.  I got a call from Kathie who told me my mother was dead. I spoke to the Naperville Police officer and he told me that the Naperville Animal Control wrote him an email that said I abused Hannah.  The Naperville Police went into the home and returned telling me that Hannah belonged to Toerpe.

Scott and I left in separate cars and I drove a few blocks away and parked the car.  I collapsped in tears. Then as if my mother was sitting next to me in the car, I found all this strength and I called the DuPage County cororner’s office. I was told everything and in particular, that Mom was at Suerths Furner Home, where she wanted to be laid out.  I called Suerths, and spoke to Dennis, one of the twins who own the place and both who I went to grammar and high school.  I told him not to touch mom that I was going to have an autopsy.  He told me mother arrived there at 11 a.m. and that Toerpe demanded she be embalmed. I went to Suerths where I visited my mother.  Her hair was chopped off as if recently cut to stop me from pulling out any hairs for testing.  Her lip had a recent sore and was swollen, which wasn’t there at 6:30 p.m. when I left eight hours before her death.  Her ankles were not swollen or purple, and either were her fingers: she showed no signs of death or long time terminal disease.

Dennis told me that he would not move mother without a court order.  I retained an attorney, who Dennis told the same to, but we couldn’t get a death certificate.  No one had a death certificate.  It took over two weeks before Kathie got a death certificate which I sent to my attorney: on it, mother’s date of birth was wrong and the spelling of her maiden name was wrong.  There are other very suspicious things on the Death certificate Kathie got from DuPage, however, my attorney went into DuPage to get an order for an autopsy and Peter Schmiedel was present and told the court that Toerpe entombed mother on June 4.

I will say no more at this time other than if mother truly had late stage dementia and died from, let’s say, starvation because her brain stopped sending signals to eat, which could be a late state dementia, then Schmiedel and Toerpe would have sat back and laughed at me, let me spend the thousands of dollars for an autopsy and Toerpe could have had the final laugh.  In stead, just like Toerpe and Schmiedel isolating mother from all family and friends in order to keep the truth that mother was healthy, articulate and fully sane and ***, they first quickly destroyed all evidence of the drugs by the embalming, and then, did not publicize mother’s death so friends and family could say goodby, but had a very very small service (mother’s friend and priest was not there) and entombed her quickly.  Toerpe didn’t even spend any money for flowers or living plants and there’s no sign of any ceremonial at the crypt.

On the same day or soon after, Schmiedel went to Judge MacCarthy and filed a motion for his fees.  The guardianship is over and all Toerpe can do is collect, but not pay out, and  yet, without any family being notified or having an opportunity to contest — not that that would make any difference — on the same day Schmiedel filed his papers, he was given at least $45,000 from (my) assets held at the Probate clerks’ office in the Estate of Mary G. Sykes.  Further, Toerpe’s accounting for 2014 was approved, and of course, no one was able to review the accounting except for I’m certain Adam Stern and Peter Schmiedel… but wait, the guardianship was not closed, but continued 60 day — again when it should have been closed within 30 days of mother’s death.

And none of the Cook County law enforcement agents beleive that something didn’t go terrible wrong and that Schmiedel and his troops didn’t claim all the assets for mother’s care somehoe ended up in their back pockets… with Schmiedel and the lawfirm he is associated with receiveing over $175,000 and Stern, over $60,000 with Cynthia Farenga absent from court in this case for over two year… but it is beileve she got $30,000 with Harvey Jack Waller getting $17000. and of course, Toerpe getting the rest of the estate with over or close to $1 million of assets.

Like Dr. Bennet Blum stated in a 20009 interview, when adult children are involved, the one who is appointed guardian normally will over medicate, suffocate, and MURDER the elder and then creamate.  We don’t know if somehow Peter Schmiedel had my mother creamated to truly destroy all the evidence.

Yep, all these complaints, all of Ditkowsky’s, mine and other people’s request for investigation, and just like Gacy, my mother had to die, to be murdered, in order for someone to now investigate.  It is being investigated, BTW, and so, the end of the documentary and the book is not one which I had hoped.


I was told this on day one when I was in court with an attorney for the Order of Protection mother filed to stop Toerpe from doing all she did: a person my the name of Linda *** came up to me and said, “If you don’t get your mother freed soon, she will murdered and die a pauper”.  I didn’t believe her.  (Linda was harassed, harmed, and ended up herself in treatment for depression, et al, and her mother suddenly died, just like my mother…”)

Healthy Regards,

Subject: The Cover -up – The letter that allegedly got Journalist and Investigative producer Gloria Sykes a ‘beating’ that the States Attorney of Cook County would not prosecute.
We’ve heard, but have not verified the accusation that Mr. Jerome Larkin has some sort of financial relationship with the Attorney that journalist Gloria Sykes wrote to the IARDC complaining.     Of course as Larkin does not file the ETHICS STATEMENT that is required of all persons receiving remuneration in the form of salary from public offices of the State of Illinois such remains a secret.   So much for ethics at the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission.

RE: Attorney Deborah Jo Soehlig of Fischel & Kahn

To Whom It May Concern,

Yesterday, February 17, 2012, attorney Deborah Jo Soehlig stood before a federal bankruptcy judge, (Pamela Hollis) and LIED.  This is not the first time she (and her colleague of Fischel & Kahn–Peter Schmeidel) misrepresented the facts to a FEDERAL JUDGE, or even a STATE JUDGE, but this time she did it with vindictive retaliation in order to further ‘bully’ me and dispossess me from not only my property “Homestead”, but also all property of my bankruptcy estate and procure a favorable ruling in order for her to have a huge financial gain.  It is a matter of fact that:

(1)  Deborah Soehlig will NOT get paid one penny for her unethical and lawlessness services provided to her client Carolyn Toerpe, the Plenary Guardian, unless she successfully does me great harm (renders me penniless and homeless in order to silence me);
(2)  Deborah Soehlig is giving Carolyn Toerpe legal advice on how to financially exploit, willfully deprive, and otherwise, perpetrate egregious and deadly elder abuses against my mother, Mary G. Sykes,
(3) Deborah Soehlig knows she is before a Federal Judge without standing: that she or her client, are not “creditors” and she is willfully interfering and abusing me in a proceeding that she does not belong involved in;
(4) Deborah Soehlig knows or should know the law(s) and the Bankruptcy Codes and the Rules of procedure, but still, she pretended that she had me served notice regarding her Motion to Adopt she (allegedly) filed with the U. S. District Court in re the Estate of Gloria Jean Sykes, when in fact I was never properly served and the Affiant lied;
(5) Deborah Soehlig knows or should know that her client is a ‘fraud’ and that there is but a “Naked Trust” or the trust property was improperly claimed in the Mary G. Sykes Trust rendering it thereby invalid, and that her client has no right to possession of the property at 6014 N. Avondale (“Subject Property” or “Homestead”) in whole or in part: that said, Deborah Soehlig knows or should know that the illegal and wrongful eviction perpetrated against me dictated that I be dispossessed of the second floor only and that her client LIED to the Deputy Sheriff, creating false statements against me, in order to have me forcibly removed from the entire Subject Property against my will or consent.  Deborah Jo Soehlig knows or should know that the Sheriff placed their purportedly legal sticker of dispossession on the second floor but that her client changed the locks on the first floor in order to dispossess me of the entire premises–an action which was false and unwarranted under the allegedly proper court order the Sheriff had attained color of authority thereunder.

Attorney, Deborah Jo. Soehlig, not unlike her ethically challenged colleague attorney Peter Schmiedel, have violated the same codes of ethics and professionalism and so the ARDC only need to refer to my numerous prior complaints against attorney Peter Schmiedel to pursue their investigation.  Deborah Jo Soehlig knowingly has committed serious torts and criminal acts no less than that amounting to acts of civil terrorism against both my mother and I for her own greed and financial gain, and she told me yesterday that she will “dictate when or if I get my personal property, my tools of the trade and intellectual property,  and or any of my confidential legal documents– including evidence much needed to prevail in the Federal Cases”, back into my possession. She LIED to the federal judge yesterday when she knows that the Order of October 25, 2012 is being appealed and that the court lacked jurisdiction to address that order — and yet, Attorney Deborah Jo Soehlig created the false and improper illusion that I was a “dangerous” person and her client was “in need of protection” and therefore a security company was hired to protect Carolyn Toerpe and Toerpe’s property at the Subject Property.  Deborah Soehlig knows that none of the property currently housed at 6014 N. Avondale belongs to her client, or has ever in fact belonged to her client.

I have submitted numerous claims and requested protection under the ARDC’s Client Protection Program and I have been repeatedly denied. The loss of the properties of my estate, the egregious lies  narrated by attorney(s) such as Deborah Jo Soehlig have caused me (1) loss of money and property as a result of the intentional dishonest statement by attorney Deborah Jo Soehlig;
(2) that Deborah Jo Soehlig has wrongfully misappropriated or converted, is using, and withholding my money and my property;
(3) that these loses occurred while Deborah Jo Soehlig was acting as Carolyn Toerpe’s lawyer and in a fiduciary capacity related to the practice of law (attorney for the alleged Plenary Guardian of the Estate of Mary G. Sykes);
(4) that because of the huge losses of property, income, et. al, due to Attorney Deborah Jo Soehlig’s deliberate fraud on the court which she perpetrated in several court proceedings, she must be investigated and disbarred, or at least suspended;
(5) that I have made reasonable efforts to pursue civil remedies and as late as yesterday, in motioning the U. S. Bankruptcy Court for a Rule to Show Cause based upon numerous misrepresentations, half truths and even outright lies, attorney Deborah Jo Soehlig, after court in the hall when I once again attempted to “work things out” and “set up a cooperative time to procure my properties while we work out the adversary proceedings– the Appeal, the ADA claim and the section 2-1401 that her client will be served today or tomorrow by the DuPage County Sheriff’s office–she has REFUSED TO OFFER ANY ASSISTANCE OR REASONABLE COOPERATION WITH THE INTENT TO BULLY ME, TO CAUSE ME MUCH PAIN AND SUFFERING in an attempt to silence me!

My losses have been massive since Attorney Deborah Jo Soehlig first became involved in these court proceedings relating to the Estate of Mary G. Sykes and these losses are due in full to her negligence, her lack of reasonable investigation into the facts and affidavits previously placed on file with the ARDC and posted on this blog,  and her gross malpractice (rather than intentional dishonesty).
Some of those losses (financial and emotional), occurred because she and her client is not in fact an ‘creditor’ of my Estate in Bankruptcy.  Rather, because she is falsely parading around in the Bankruptcy court as such, my claim is for lost profits, consequential damages, and costs to recover my personal, professional, and legal litigation properties. (Deborah Jo Soehlig has and continues to obstruct justice and she further instructs and advises her client on how to obstruct justice as well, inter alia).

To ignore the egregious and wrongful conduct of Deborah Jo Soehlig, who has LIED on motions filed, verbally LIED to state and federal court judges (the transcripts of proceedings where she has appeared are replete with such lies) and yesterday, she lied again to Judge Hollis in order to influence a Judge and discredit me for her own financial gain.  Attorney Deborah Jo Soehlig’s motivation is simple: greed and money!  She made an agreement with her client Carolyn Toerpe that the only way she will get paid is if she does me great harm, renders me penniless and homeless, and in doing so, illegally sells my mother’s home (and forces the sale of my home — “No, hell no I won’t let her do that and neither should the ARDC”), for her own personal financial gain.

You can easily check on all of these facts.  Deborah Jo Soehlig cannot prove or show that she has been paid for her services over the past two years she’s represented Carolyn Toerpe.  Her and her firm are waiting to sell the Subject Property and my home as well (“my Homestead”) by forcing a partition proceeding when she knew or should have known that I paid for the home in full, paid the mortgage and I was the only individual residing on the premise and that this arrangement was well known by reputable (that is, most all) of my family members–not those who stand to financially gain by the sale of my Homestead.

The financial exploitation, the willful deprecation of both my mother and myself is so blatant, that even a challenged child can see the FACTS that Attorney Deborah Jo Soehlig is using her position and office as an attorney, and using the courts in order to not only churn assets of our estates, but also to set a course that will ultimately ‘murder’ my mother. And inasmuch as Deborah Jo Soehlig threatened my life and livelihood yesterday outside the Courtroom of Judge Hollis in a direct pursuit of  what attorney Peter Schmiedel wrote in an email to my one time attorney Joel Brodsky, that the law firm of Fischel and Kahn will do whatever they must to render me penniless and homeless for their own benefit (to get paid).

The legal profession depends upon the public’s trust.  It’s been over two (2) years since I first filed a complaint against attorney Peter Schmiedel who appeared for the first time as Toerpe’s client on February 10, 2010 and I reported to the Probate Court that he was going to sell my mother’s home and my home too for his own financial advantage and gain.  Because the ARDC has failed to act, failed to investigate, et al, Peter Schmiedel and Deborah Jo Soehlig’s wrongful acts amounting to little more than civil terrorism, I am now homeless and penniless and without any of my personal and professional property as well as my intellectual properties needed to generate an income, and of course all my legal documents.  That said, attorney Deborah Jo Soehlig, if not stopped, she will assuredly not only instruct her client Carolyn Toerpe not just on how to murder Mary G. Sykes, but also on how to murder me as well.  You at the ARDC continue to laugh, continue to charge innocents like Kenneth Ditkowsky or JoAnne Denison, and while ignoring the obvious, you are empowering criminals wearing legal suits and carrying legal briefcases and pleadings to do great harm to the exact people and general public that you, as a oversight agency, were lawfully appointed by the State of Illinois to protect.

I am extremely fearful for my life. I fear for my mother’s life.  Meanwhile, Attorney Deborah Jo Soehlig continues to LIE to Illinois Judges in order to obtain rulings that will fill, or which may be currently filling her pockets with the hard earned money of good American citizens who have repeatedly  reached out to the ARDC pleading for basic legal protection afforded to all.

I, and I’m certain other innocents, live in fear for their lives every day because of attorneys like Deborah Jo Soehlig.

FYI I have not received any confirmation that the ARDC is dong any investigation on attorney Peter Schmiedel after so many complaints were filed against him, that it appears that this is a John Wayne Gacy situation, that the ARDC will do nothing until many die — and then, it will be simply too late.

The last words Deborah Jo Soehlig said to me yesterday as I ‘begged’ to arrange for a cooperative time for me to get my properties from the Subject Property, are “You can’t dictate to me.  We will dictate when, how, and if at all you get your property back.” She then turned on her heels and with her buddy, attorney Peter Schmiedel, simply walked away from me.  Other attorneys heard this and a couple walked up to me in shock!  Hitler is still alive and well…. is the ARDC going to allow Deborah Jo Soehlig to walk me (and my mother) into the Showers, too?

Right now, we’re both living in this Concentration Camp stage of hell on earth, and we can see not too far afield the Shower buildings which is assuredly the next step in this grisly process perpetrated with the assistance of the Schmeidel team.
