MB Financial to Acquire $200 MILLION in “Guardianship Business” from JP Morgan Chase


MB Financial Bank recently completed its acquisition of the Illinois court-appointed guardianship and special needs trust business of JPMorgan Chase, according to Mitchell Feiger, president and CEO of MB Financial, Inc. (NASDAQ: MBFI), parent of MB Financial Bank, N.A. Terms of the deal were not announced. The acquisition added approximately $200 million of assets under management to MB Financial Bank’s existing guardianship business. Approximately five years ago, MB completed its acquisition of the Illinois guardianship and special needs trust business of U.S. Trust, Bank of America Private Wealth Management.

This more than adquately becries the depth of the problem–“$200 million in guardianship business”.  Many clients end up in probate with their assets dumped into a “pooled disabled trust” which is supposed to take no fees greater than normal, from from the accountings I have seen, that is a far cry from the truth and I’ve received many oa complaint over fee charged by banks.

MB financial has some $15 billion in assets, so this is but a drop in their mega corp business.

The question really is, do we want a mega corp owning grandma and grandpa.  This is one likely source of the push for “seniors for cash” in the court system.

Subject: How to Conduct your own real estate scam.
How to conduct your own Real Estate Scam.    (Three examples)
The Elder Cleansing cases (and in particular the Mary Sykes case) contains a text book example of how to separate a senior citizen from his or her real estate.
1.        Quick shot deed.       Take mother to a lawyer under the guise of helping her engage in estate planning and suggest a ‘living trust.’   This is a trust in which mother declares herself as trustee and beneficiary of a necessary trust.    The successor trustee is the person who desires to absorb the assets to the exclusion of mother and the other heirs.      With the help of an unprincipled and co-conspirator lawyer, mother is declared incompetent and the miscreant successor trustee is now the trustee and in control of the real estate.        As trustee the miscreant now can create deficiencies that allow the property to be sold at a bargain price and through a series of mesne transactions the proceeds find their way to more deserving beneficiaries.
a.        For this transaction to be consummated you need a series of strawmen.     It has been suggested that one of the guardian ad litem had (or has) a husband who regularly engages in such activities and that the real estate track book reveals a large number of such transactions.  The strawman provide for legitimacy appearance.    At the end of the transaction all the conspirators are rewarded with a generous payout reported on the 1040 tax form as a capital gain.   (No corrupt judge is required to cover up the perfidy.
b.      There are some interim steps.     Maintenance costs increase, mortgage payments fall into semi-defaults, esthetics are neglected *****.    A ragged throw rug, or a smelling rag left on the sink can turn off a prospective purchaser.     A broken window in the bathroom can reduce the value of a home to a prospective buyer by a $100k.   The smell of urine also does wonders.
2.        Poor mother has run out of money scam.      With the co-operation of a corrupt judge, corrupt judicial officials, corrupt lawyers the home of a person who has been subjected to a guardianship can be sold off by a judicially managed sale at a bargain price.    The difference between the Quick shot deed transaction and this transaction is that a corrupt judge provides the cover.    The Judge acts out of pretended compassion so that grandma will not have to be evicted from her exploitative nursing home or similar facility.     In Sykes money was short because about two million dollars escaped inventory.   Protests have gone unanswered.
3.       Friendly foreclosure.       In the Sykes case, Gloria’s payments were allegedly escrowed by the HOlder of the mortgage at the request of one of the attorneys for the guardian.    The escrowed funds were not credited to the mortgage and thus the mortgage went into default.     The guardian ad litem used her clout and a series of statements that were unfounded to tie up Gloria’s funds.    Thus, the mortgage holder was quite content.    It has the money and the security.    The lawyers having special relationship with the holder of the mortgage either purchased the note, or made a special fee relationship with the holder.    The net was the mortgage foreclosed and title cleared by the decree of foreclosure.     Again a series of mesne transactions yielded full value to the dwelling.     Of course a deficiency judgment is available to stop overt complaints by the victim as the miscreants are aware that in most instances the only bidder at a judicial sale is the holder of the mortgage.    If the property is particularly valuable you might obtain outside bidders.   At that point in time, the bank just bids in its mortgage, accrued interest, attorney fees and other costs and the chips fall where they may.
There are variation on these schemes including contesting title, lien claims etc.
    Right now in Florida Kevin P’s mother in law’s property in South Florida is being primed for such a sale.    Like the Mary Sykes case the property has value for high end development   The guardians for profit recognize the potential and you can bet your bottom dollar that a judge is going to order the property sold and bargains are going to obtained.    Why pay a fair price for a senior’s property when it can be stolen?       Offering the Judge’s family members such as the wife, daughter in law, et al a piece of the actions speeds up the transaction.     (This is what Janet is finding in California).

Affidavits and Statements regarding M,s. Stone’s abuse and horrifying deprivation of care
Rabbi Edwin Farber
(hebrew text)
I, RABBI ED FARBER being duly sworn, state as follows:
• I have served as the Rabbi of Beth Torah Synagogue in North Miami Beach for 18 years. Prior to my
serving as Rabbi, I was the Rabbi at Temple Samu-EI Or Olom for 16 years in S. Dade Miami.
• I began visiting Helen Stone in August of 2013. I had met her son and then later her daughter and
learned that Mrs. Stone and her family had been part of the Beth Torah congregation I serve for many
years prior to my arrival there as the Rabbi.
• I visited Mrs. Stone in her apartment in Aventura frequently which is very nearby my home and my
• From the very first visit I had many concerns about her care. At first I wondered why the aides, who
knew I was coming, didn’t make sure that Mrs. Stone was dressed and comfortable to receive her
Rabbi. She was always in pajamas and a type of bathrobe with her hair unkempt and she would
apologize to me about her dress.
• I told her it wasn’t important and that she should feel comfortable in her own home. But it seemed odd
to me that the aides had no concern about how she was dressed even in the middle of the afternoon.
• I observed that Mrs. Stone did not have adequate food in the house and she was painfully thin. I was
so concerned that following my visit, I ordered food to be delivered to the house. On subsequent
visits, there was never sufficient food.
• I also noted that Mrs. Stone was very unsteady on her feet and as she gave me a tour of the apartment
and told me the story of her upbringing in the Deep South and her move to Miami as a young girl I
asked her about a walker. She told me she didn’t have one. I looked around the apartment and indeed
there wasn’t one in sight. It was only after I indicated my concern that a few days later two walkers –
one with a seat and one without – appeared in the apartment.
• I asked Mrs. Stone if she was getting out on a regular basis and she told me she wasn’t. The guardians
indicated to me that she was taken out regularly – sometimes to a beauty parlor – and that Mrs. Stone
was just forgetful. Yet not one tifue when I visited her was her hair done so this caused me to wonder
what the accurate story was. I discussed all this with her daughter Barbara who was gravely concerned
about her mother’s care. .

North Miami Beach, FL 33180 FAX: 305-933-6955 http://www.btbrc.org
• In all my discussions with Mrs. Stone the biggest topic was her daughter. She was upset that she
didn’t see her daughter more often. She said that was her only really joy anymore as all her friends in
the building were gone and Barbara was her best friend.
• Mrs. Stone would talk about how good her daughter was but she lived in NY and didn’t have time to visit her that often. I didn’t tell her that in fact her daughter was right here in Florida but her visits were restricted. At one point Barbara had been here three straight weeks and was only allowed to see her mother once a week during that stretch oftime.
• Mrs. Stone also told me repeatedly that she would like her own lawyer. I did not know how to follow up on that but I did try to keep the court abreast of all that I had noted in my visits.
• One Friday I visited her to wish her a ‘Good Shabbos’ and she was very happy to see me and gave me the same tour and history lesson. She was very animated and asked about my family and my grandchildren. I told her I had to go to New Jersey for a conference and would see her next week
• I came back the following Wednesday and when I came in I found Mrs. Stone sitting on the couch unable to lift her head or utter a single sentence. She mumbled some words but they were incomprehensible. She was not sleeping – she was awake but not functioning. I could not believe that the aides had not called a Doctor or 911 as something was clearly very wrong with Mrs. Stone. The woman who was walking me around the apartment 5 days before and giving me a history lesson about her family in the Deep South could not lift her head, focus her eyes or say a sentence. I went to take a video of her to send to the guardians so they would see the situation and the aide called the guardian. I thought it was to alert the guardian to Mrs. Stone’s condition. As it turned out it was to alert the
guardians to the fact that I was taking a video and I was told to stop or to leave immediately. I stopped, left and composed a text to the guardians alerting them to Mrs. Stone’s condition.
• That text was sent on November 6″‘. I have a copy in my phone. I also alerted Barbara to the situation.
It wasn’t for another day and Y, until Mrs. Stone was hospitalized and was so weak that they had to put a feeding tube in her as she didn’t have the strength to swallow. That took nearly 36 hours to hospitalize her is beyond my comprehension. What did she do for food during those 36 hours? I cannot imagine that she was able to swallow in that condition.
• I continued to visit Mrs. Stone in the hospital and in the rehab at Palm Gardens. At that time Barbara was given by the court regular visiting hours every day and that was a great source of happiness to Mrs. Stone.
• Barbara was there during the entire time her visits were allowed. She devoted much time seeing to it that her mother ate and attended the rehab provided by Palm Gardens.
• Several times I visited her in Palm Gardens with Barbara there and the conversations were very animated.
• Mrs. Stone wanted to get out of bed to go to the bathroom but she was told she COUldn’t and this greatly agitated her. It was the aide hired by the guardians who told her this.
• We have people in our synagogue who belp us with visitation of the elderly and the ill. Those visits
were not welcome by the guardians and they came to an end rather quickly.
• I asked a few times to be able to talk with Mrs. Stone privately but the aides refused to allow me to do
that. I felt that Mrs. Stone might have felt intimidated by the aides presence and wouldn’t talk to me in
a direct fashion about how she was doing and bow she felt.
• Whenever Barbara visited her mother, she was actually “shadowed” by an aide. The aide literally
followed her less than I foot away. It was bizarre and a brazen intrusion on Mrs. Stone’s personal
space and greatly impeded her enjoyment of her visits from Barbara.
• After Mrs. Stone left Palm Gardens I was contacted by the guardians and told that I would not be
welcome to visit Mrs. Stone anymore and would not be apprised of her location. I was agitating her
they said my visits resulted in ‘pain’ and ‘anguish’ for Mrs. Stone.
• They of course had never been there during my visits and I can assure you it was anything but that.
Mrs. Stone enjoyed my visits and except for the one time she could not even respond which I
described above she was always very happy to see me.
• The reason the guardians didn’t want me to visit was that they were aware that I was writing to the
court about my concerns about the care Mrs. Stone was receiving. I asked them to arrange for another
Rabbi to visit but never received a response.
• So here we have them trying to first isolate Mrs. Stone from her daughter and then from me and from
anyone who tried to visit her from the synagogue.
• What we have here is an increasing isolation of Mrs. Stone from anyone other than her aides who I
can assure you paid little attention to her.
• At the previous hearing, instead of investigating the obvious neglect and abuse of Mrs. Stone and her
inexplicable emaciated condition, the hearing was centered around Barbara Stone.
• Further, throughout their oversight of Mrs. Stone, these guardians have ignored Mrs. Stone needs. It
was only after I raised concerns about her care that any attention to her needs was provided. She was
deprived food. She did not have a walker until I complained.
• Her medications were not posted anywhere in the house yet she had people administering medication
without any apparent knowledge of what she was being given. Mrs. Stone appear drugged and over
medicated on many occasions.
• It was over 36 hours before she was taken to the hospital when it was obvious she was in severe
distress. No, I am not a Doctor, but it doesn’t take a Dr. to see that a person is in severe distress. I
may not be a Doctor but I was a son for 55 years of my life and if I saw my mother like that I would
have dialed 9 I I in an instant.
The fact that by the time she got to the hospital she needed a feeding tube is an indication that her
caregivers and her guardians who were alerted by me to the situation simply allowed her waited
months to too long – way too long.
Mrs. Stone should not be isolated, neglected and abused. She needs enrichment, not deprivation and she
needs to see her daughter and to have her Rabbi visit her.

To the Honorable Judge Michael A Genden
From: Rabbi Edwin Farber
Re: Guardianship of Helen Stone
Dear Judge Genden;
I hesitate to write once again to you concerning Mrs. Helen stone but it is my obligation not 10
stand by silenfty while I watch what appears to me to be a sad case of neglect of the elderly and
the strange desire of the guardians 10 isolate Mrs. Stone from visitors. I have continued 10 visit Mrs.
Helen stone since her hospitalization In Aventura to her present stay at Palm Gardens Nursing
Home in Aventura. I remain astonished and concemed at Ihe behavior of the aides who are
attending to Mrs. stone. In order to provide Mrs. Stone with some human Interaction I have had
volunteers from my Synagogue visit her. They go there to engage her In conversation and offer
companionship. One is a professionally trained care giver and two others are very compassionate
women who I have seen take care of their elderly and ailing parents until their passing. To my great
distress and embarrassment all three of them were sent away by the aides hired by the guardian. It
is standard operating procedure In this community for volunteers from faith communities to visit the
eldeMy in our hospitals and nursing homes to provide them with seme very important social
interaction and to make sure they don’t feel alone and abandoned. Each person introduced
themselves as being representatives from the synagogue yet they were sent away. I was sending
them to visit when the daughter Barbara was not in Miami and at times when Barbara was not
pemnitted to visii. There is a very clear attempt to isolate Mrs. Stone who is very animated al),d
happy when visitors do come. I see no justification for this kind of behavior by the aides who are
acting under direction from the guardians. I know that because the aides got on the phone with the
guardians when the visitors came and then instructed them to leave.
On Tuesday, I visited Mrs. stone and was welcomed. However, when I indicated to the aide that I
wanted to speak privately with Mrs. Stone and to pray with her for her well being I was told tlilat this
was not possible. The aide could not leave Mrs. stone alone. I told herlhat In my entire car””,r I
had never met such a response. I then went with Helen and her daughter who was there at tile
time for a walk in .the hallway (wilh Mrs. Stone in the wheelchair) and to my astonishment thE\ aide
followed us and was taking notes throughout the walk. At about 5 minutes before 5:00 pm the Aide
began and out loud countdown for Barbara telling her every two minutes how much time she had
before she had to leave. Excuse the levtty, but I thought we were at a football game and were
getting the tWo-mlnute warning. At exacfty 5 pm the aide infonned me that I could stay but Barbara
stone would have to leave as her visiting hours were over. I asked her if she wasn~ seeing tljat
Helen was animated, laughing, telling me her life story and bragging about her very brilliant
daughter – that Helen was having a good time? She said – I need to enforce the visitation hows for
the daughter and they are up. I have visited people in jail and I remember how strict they were
there In enforCing the exact time of visitation but even there I saw some latilude. What the aide to
me was saying is: I am not here to see to the welfare and best interests of Helen Stone but to
make sure her daughter doesn’t spend one extra minute with her mother and that the mother not

aglfation to her Mom then that would be the aide’s responsibility. On this we all concur. But it’s the
opposite. Mrs. stone was clearly happy to be with her daughter and was smiling, laughing and tell
us all about her very smart and wonderful daughter.
I was also astonished when the aide refused to identify herself or show her credentials. We were
told that if we had any questions we couJd call the agency that sent her. That was such a bizarre
response that I don’t even know how to respond to it. I want to add that all three of the visitors who
after a short while were sent away by the aides indicated how perturbed they were at the hos~ lity
of the aide and how the aide seemed to have no interest in the good time Helen was having with
the visitors. She spent most of her time while we were there franticly writing notes which I suppose
.– .:: :.
were io report back to the guardians.
During the visit I asked Helen if there was anything she wanted that I eQuid do for her. She said, ‘I
want an attorney, I want honest people around me.’ She repeated that to me numerous times
during the visit. I implore the court to actively Investigate the care that Mrs. stone Is receiving at
‘this time by the aides assigned by the guardians, their apparent desire to keep her away froll],
visitors and the continued desire of the guardians to keep Helen away from her daughter as much
as possible.
Th,;nk you very much for your attention. It is most appreciated.

Re: Guardianship of Helen Stone
Dear Judge Genden;
As a Rabbi in the community [feel compelled to write this letter and pass on to you the
enclosed affidavit of a licensed Occupational Therapist – Harriet Collier – that was brought to
my attention concerning the condition of Helen Stone who in the earlier years was a member of
my congregation in N. Dade. I understand that Helen Stone is under the supervision of a
guardian appointed by the court and that it is with the court I should raise my concerns.
I had an opportunity to visit with Mrs. Stone on October 8th in her apartment and was
concerned about the following:
1) It was 1 pm and she had just gotten out of bed about 12 pm. She told me that she loses
track of time and her caregivers just let her sleep and don’t awaken her or encourage
her to get out of bed, dress and eat. She did speak of them kindly although indicated
that they do not engage her in anything at all during the day.
2) Her hair was completely disheveled and she was wearing a robe that was much too big
for her.
3) She thinks she had breakfast but didn’t remember what and the kitchen showed no
signs of any food having been served. The refrigerator didn’t have much in it and most
of it looked like it was fast food – perhaps that was the caretaker’s food.
4) I have visited ot her seniors in similar conditions and I always saw a chart of their
medications posted so that one caregiver would know what the other had done. I saw
no such chart and Mrs. Stone had no idea if such a think existed. Perhaps it was in a
hidden location but it was not on obvious display anywhere.
5) She told me that they hardly ever take her anywhere anymore and that the most
important thing to her each day is the call of her daughter and the anticipation of her
daughter’s Yisits from NY.
These observations along with the affidavit I have enclosed led me to think that someone needs
to check on this guardianship to make sure that Mrs. Stone is properly being cared for and that
there is some stimulus and engagement on the part of the caregivers and not just ‘baby-sitting’.
It appears to me that there is serious neglect in this instance which puts Mrs. Stone in a
dangerous situation. The small amount of food in the refrigerator gave me great pause and
although it isn’t surprising to see senior lose weight Mrs. Stone seemed very, very thin.
Hi Jackie,
I wanted to explain why I didn’t take your call while I was visiting with Helen
Stone today. Helen was very, very disoriented when I came to visit. She was
sitting in the couch unable to even lift her head off the couch. Her speech
was slurred and her eyes were unfocused. She would sometimes completely
‘tune out’ with a long distant look in her eyes and not respond to me. I didn’t
want at that t ime to talk in front of her or to walk away from her. This visit
was unlike any visit with her in the past including my visit just last Thursday.
She was always animated and was walking around the apartment showing
me pictures and telling me stories. The one recurrent theme was how happy
she was when her daughter Barbara visited with her. She told me about her
husband buying the apartment and setting it up so beautifully and how her
‘Daddy’ in Mississippi was so good to the blacks and taught her to be
respectful and kind to all people. Now I found a woman who couldn’t lift her
head, had glazed over eyes, couldn’t say a full sentence and thought she was
in NY last week. The deterioration was dramatic. What will she be like when
I see her in a few days? I don’t know but I left extremely concerned about
her. f did not want to express that In front of her and so I didn’t take your
call. I thought I had your number in my phone but I didn’t – so I couldn’t call
you when I left.
I will tell you that my singular purpose is simply to help her see her daughter
more frequently. There is no purpose in keeping them separated. Barbara
was here for over two weeks and only had the opportunity to see her Mom
twice. That is just incomprehensible to me. Every time I visit Helen focuses
on her daughter and the joy of talking with her on the phone and seeing her.
Until this visit today she was always able to tell me the last time her
daughter visited. This time she could not remember but as I indicated she
was not saying full sentences and was unable to focus and directly respond
to most of my questions. I was really shocked by her condition and can only
hope that it is temporary. I quite frankly don’t even know where she would
get the strength to eat based on what I saw today. I know that you will check
this apparent sudden deterioration out very soon.

Statement of Dire and Imminent Danger
I hired Jacqueline Hertz who represented herself as a professional guardian and Blaire Lapides for my Mother because I
lived in another state.
My Mother has suffered extreme neglect, abuse and exploitation since Jacqueline Hertz and Blaire Lapides were
appointed her guardian.
I. Jacqueline Hertz and B1aire Lapides have isolated my mother, denied her pleas to see me, her daughter, deprived of
her of food, medical attention and other essential services and caused her to suffer from bruises and bed sores that
required medical attention.
2. Because of abuse and neglect and Jacqueline Hertz’s and Blaire Lapides failure to attend to my mother’s welfare, my
Mother was admitted by emergency to the hospital where she was diagnosed UPON ADMISSION with dehydration,
malnourishment, failure to thrive, infection and onset pneumonia.
3. Because Jacqueline Hertz and Blaire Lapides did not provide my mother essential life necessities, food and medical
attention and she was kept in isolation and confinement, my mother was forced to undergo an invasive surgery to have
a feeding tube implanted in her stomach. This is a very extreme measure for an elderly person to undergo.
4. Instead of using my mother’s limited means to provide her with the highest quality of care, Jacqueline Hertz and
Blaire Lapides have used my mother’s limited means to embroil her in litigation. This exploitation was used to drain
any money she has to care for her welfare.
5. My mother is “overseen” by unlicensed workers hired by Jacqueline Hertz and Blaire Lapides. Further, Jacqueline
Hertz and Blaire Lapides represented Helen Stone would be overseen by licensed practice nurses when in fact Mrs.
Stone’s care has been overseen by apparent thugs in whose care my mother has been beaten black and blue, has bed
sores, was not feed and subsists in diapers instead of having the
6. Not only have my mother’s needs been neglected by unqualified workers, they engage in a pattern of pursuing their
own personal and social agenda. Their time is spent on cell phones with personal calls, watching T.V, making
elaborate meals for themselves with total disregard for feeding or providing food to my mother and failing to carry out
their required duties to document Mrs. Stone’s food intake, medications and other medical attention.
7. Jacqueline Hertz and B1aire Lapides have admitted their fai lure to provide adequate care as they have terminated the
care agency, Caring Home Care they negligently retained.
8. I attempted to assess my mother’s dire condition because of the severe neglect and life threatening consequences.
9. My mother has now been secreted away in some undisclosed location. Any “care” is now completely ignored as my
mother subsists on a feeding tube, is kept in bed all day, has no services whatsoever, is toileted by virtue of a diaper
and a catheter.
10. This court appears to be more concerned with the Petitioner’s desperate measures to save the life of Petitioner’s
mother than failure of Jacqueline Hertz and B1aire Lapides to attend to the best interest Mrs. Stone, a
vulnerable 86 year old woman whose limited means are being used solely for the greed of Jacqueline Hertz and Blaire
Lapides and the vi le, abhorrent methods that Jacqueline Hertz and Blaire Lapides are employing to remove any
semblance of humanity and decency to Mrs. Stone

Hi Jackie,
I wanted to explain why I didn’t take your call while I was visiting with Helen
Stone today. Helen was very, very disoriented when I came to visit. She was
sitting in the couch unable to even lift her head off the couch. Her speech
was slurred and her eyes were unfocused. She would sometimes completely
‘tune out’ with a long distant look in her eyes and not respond to me. I didn’t
want at that time to talk in front of her or to walk away from her. This visit
was unlike any visit with her in the past including my visit just last Thursday.
She was always animated and was walking around the apartment showing
me pictures and telling me stories. The one recurrent theme was how happy
she was when her daughter Barbara visited with her. She told me about her
husband buying the apartment and setting it up so beautifully and how her
‘Daddy’ in Mississippi was so good to the blacks and taught her to be
respectful and kind to all people. Now I found a woman who COUldn’t lift her
head, had glazed over eyes, couldn’t say a full sentence and thought she was
in NY last week. The deterioration was dramatic. What will she be like when
f see her in a few days? I don’t know but I left extremely concerned about
her. I did not want to express that in front of her and so I didn’t take your
cal!. I thought I had your number in my phone but I didn’t – so I couldn’t call
you when I left.
I will tell you that my singular purpose is simply to help her see her daughter
more frequently. There is no purpose in keeping them separated. Barbara
was here for over two weeks and only had the opportunity to see her Mom
twice. That is just incomprehensible to me. Every time I viSit Heren focuses
on her daughter and the joy of talking with her on the phone and seeing her.
Until this visit today she was always able to tell me the last time her
daughter visited. This time she could not remember but as I indicated she
was not saying full sentences and was unable to focus and directly respond
to most of my questions. I was really shocked by her condition and can only
hope that it is temporary. I quite frankly don’t even know where she would
get the strength to eat based on what I saw today. I know that you will check
this apparent sudden deterioration out very soon.

Washington Examiner – By Barbara Hollingsworth I November 01, 2011 at 7:05 PM
Judges, lawyers use guardianships to prey on elderly
Think your well-tended nest egg will protcet you from the dcpredations of old age? Don’t count on it.
Little has changed since the D.C. Court of Appeals ruled almost a decade ago that Probate Judge Kaye
Christian abused her power by ordering retired economist Mollie Orshansky, creator of the federal poverty
line, removed from her sister’s care in New York and placed in a District guardianship against her will.
Even multimillionaires cannot prevent a j udge from appointing a total stranger to take compktc control of
their affairs — and banish family members who object. That’s what happened to five-term D.C. Council
member Hilda Mason and her husband, Charles, a Harvard graduate who traced his Iincage back to the
Plymouth landing. Despite Charles’ $22.5 million fortune, this power couple ended their lives in squalor.
mind, wheelchair-bound and suffering from diabetes and skin cancer, Charles spent his last days in dirty
clothing and worn-out shoes, with fingernails so long they curled around his fingers. “He looked like a
hobo,” one witness told The Washington Examiner. His frail wife suffered a broken collarbone when one
of her “caregivers” ran her over with a four-wheel-drive vehicle.
At the time of Hilda Mason’s death in 2007, debris and broken furniture littered every room of the couple’s
once-stately Shepherd Park homc. The roof leaked and the house was infested with rodents and insects. As
attorneys helped themselves to the couple’s assets, Episcopal Senior Minisbies reported that “there appears
to be no individual or group that is currently responsible for the cleaning/condition of the house.”
According to a Jan. 9, 2001, court transcript, a clearly competent Charles Mason tcstificd before the same
Judge Christian that he no longer wanted the Virginia attorney he had previously hired to represent him.
Less than three months later, Charles was declared incompetent after an adverse reaction to a psychotropic
cocktail landed him in Suburban Hospital’s psychiatric ward.
The judge refused to dismiss the lawyer, but OK’d a settlement agreement allegedly signed by Charles
Mason after he had been declared incompetent that prohibited his own wife from “interfering” with his carc.
Guardianship abuse is not limited to people with money, as Laura Fnmcois-Eugene, a supervisor at the
Department of Homeland Security, learned the hard way.
Her mother’s only f”mancial resources are her modest D.C. home and a small monthly Social Security check.
But after a fall left the elderly woman temporarily paralyzed., Probate Judge Franklin Burgess appointed a
conservator to handle her affairs despite the fact at her daughter had previously been named her legal
Francois-Eugene told The Washington Examiner she is forced to pay for her mother’s food, dentures,
medicine and clothing out of her own salary because the court-appointed conservator has been hoarding her
mother’s Social Security benefits.
The same thing is happening to another 91-year-old woman, a former D.C. Publie Schools employee forced
into a guardianship after Maryland lawyers characterized hcr daily walk as “wandering.” “Some lawyers
took all my money,” she told us, adding that she can’t access her own pension or Social Security benefits,
even to buy herself an ice cream cone_
The National Association to Stop Guardianship Abuse has documented hundreds of cases in which family
members arc denied any say in their loved ones’ care, even as court-appointed fiduciaries are given total
control. After the estate is sucked dry, the wards are often dumped onto Medicaid rolls — if they’re still
Advocates call the pattern “Isolate, Medicatc, Steal the Estate.” They’re meeting with Sen. Amy Klobuchar,
D-Minn., on Capitol Hill today seeking an end to well-intentioned guardianship laws gone horribly awry

Filing this meant Patty Reid had to lose visitation of her blind son–in Florida






“My name is PATTY REID I am a resident of Broward County, Florida, am over the age of 21,

have never been convicted of a felony or crime involving moral turpitude and am in all ways

competent to execute this affidavit for the Court.

I have spent more than half of my life taking care of individuals with disabilities, from children

to the elderly and currently volunteer at Senior Care facilities in Miami-Dade, Florida. I have a

child with special needs and serve as primary caretaker for my aged mother.

My job is to attend to dire health care needs of patients/residents with disabilities–at the Senior

Care facility I am now working as a volunteer. My life-long vocation, paid or unpaid, is in

healthcare and my skills are above most—because it matters to me. As a 30+ year healthcare

worker with the elderly/disabled, I rarely see a patient as distressed as I feel she has been.

Perhaps this is because she cannot get any answers to her questions. Helen is distraught over

being taken from her home and placed in a nursing home and the reason why the guardians

removed her from her home and forced her into a nursing care facility—remains unclear. My

guess is the same reason why BARBARA cannot see her mother or even receive information on

In thirty years of serving as a caregiver, I cannot recall more than a few cases where

institutionalization was necessary if the resident/patient had living family members—willing to

assist them in Activities of Daily Living. Once a person steps on this slippery slope, it’s an

avalanche in my opinion and I have watched Helen’s disturbing precipitous decline, frustrated

because it is all preventable with good care

I have never understood why Helen is prohibited from leaving the nursing home, can only leave

with aides. I have rarely seen visitors to Helen, so I visit her often. Like a broken record, Helen

seems fixated on the missing her daughter, missing her home, not understanding why her son and

niece would abandon her as she alleges they have done. I was asked to summarize my

observations and do so of my own free will herein.

1. Helen Stone appears tired, lethargic and/or over-medicated on a frequent basis. I do not

know why Ms. Stone would be given psychotropic drugs, but there’s no evidence she

needs anything like that.

2. Helen Stone appears confused and incoherent at times

3. Helen is often upset and lonely.

4. Helen has repeatedly asked me why Barbara cannot see her and let anyone who would

listen know that she wanted to see Barbara.

5. Helen has said she feels abandoned by her family and scared

6. Helen is not thriving in this placement, but on the decline.

7. Helen does not receive any form of occupational or physical therapy to my knowledge

and I am unaware of any such services being provided to Helen by the guardian or her

8. I have never observed any therapy being given to Helen since last October, 2014.

9. Helen Stone has all the signs of being “victimized” by elder abuse, neglect and/or

exploitation and the evidence is Helen herself along with the lack of records

demonstrating that Helen’s medical needs have been addressed.

10. She has stated that she feels disconnected and unloved and abandoned because she cannot

see her family. That statement surprised me because it demonstrates she is not

incompetent and baffled me as to why she’s in guardianship at all.

11. She has repeated pleaded to me that she wants to her daughter. I have repeatedly

brought that to the director of the facility and he said he said he would address this

with the caregivers but there has been no follow through. On other occasions when I

have addressed this with the director, I have been told to “divert” Mrs. Stone’s

conversation and to avoid talking about her daughter. Helen is suffering because her

guardianship (who are charged with addressing her needs) do not seem concerned

about Aunt Helen.

12. She does not want to be in the facility. She has expressed that bad things are

happening in the facility. She constantly asks “why am I in this place – I want to go

13. Helen becomes increasingly anxious by not being able to have visitors. Her Rabbi

attempted but was similarly turned away. Ms. Stone is not in isolation for infectious

disease, so why are guardians doing this to her?

14. Helen Stone often expresses that she feels caged. She has stated she feels she has no

options and why these bad things are happening to her.

15. Helen seems deeply sad or depressed and her existence is like a prisoner on death row

in many ways. The prison guards have simply become hired caretakers, but their

responsibility is to ensure no one trespasses.

16. Ms. Stone spends her days in a wheelchair or in bed with virtually no social

interaction, but certainly as it pertains to family and friends she wants to see.

17. In Mid March-2015, I was summoned to the facility because Helen was extremely

18. Aides hired to attend to Helen have been aggressive and even attempted to block my

Based upon my experience and training as a healthcare worker with the elderly and disabled, I

have no reasonable doubt that Helen Stone’s care is substandard, suggestive of abuse, neglect

and exploitation. I have no reasonable doubt that Helen Stone is being abused and restrained in

the nursing facility against her will. I have no reasonable doubt that Helen Stone wishes to see

her family, specifically her daughter and her wishes are being denied and diverted. This is cruel

beyond imagination—shocking that medical professionals would do this.

upset that she was being restrained against her will and not permitted visitors with

even her daughter, who she clearly loves.

access to Helen, when I am likely the only social interaction Helen is permitted.

Further affiant sayeth not.”

Patty Reid




Another harrowing probate case in Florida–Fran Grady Gilhooly, RN

then go to go fund me and make a donation to Patty and her blind son for her courageous efforts in fighting corruption in Florida


Another family who carefully cared for their handicapped, special needs son all his life has the son ripped from them, all because they reported a federal agent for covering up cocaine sales to a judge!

The penalty for being a whistleblower in Florida, if you are a woman, is to have your children ripped from your care and your visitation.

Another similar story is Patty Reid, now in hiding from the law, because she testified for Barbara Stone, another whistleblower in a case where Roy Lustig, attorney and Michael Genden, knew of severe abuse to Helen Son (rushed to ER with contusions, lacerations, pneunomia, bed sores, rashes, dehydration and malnurtrition, spent 3 weeks in the hospital) and incredulously Judge Genden returned Barbara’s complaints of abuse right back to the abusers–Atty Lustig and Guardian Lapides.  The day after Patty Reid testified that Lustig was a liar and abuser, her parental visitation rights were terminated.  She has left the state.

Please watch these two brave women who bucked the system and do what is right and for this they isolate them from their precious children.

Please pray for Helen Stone who has gone up and beyond her call of duty to stop corruption in the system of Florida by writing countless documents, pleadings and filing grievances with the judges, the courts, the judicial inquiry boards, the attorney disciplinary boards.  You name it, she has done it all to protect her mother.  And every time she finds more corruption and reports it, or more abuse and reports it, they jail her!

Right now Barbara is in jail and it’s for who knows what.  Typically, when Genden gets mad he calls his buddies at the state’s attorneys offices and makes a complaint and then they arrest  Barbara for “interferring with the care of disabled”, meaning she reported abuse.

Please pray for all these brave ladies.



PS–it should be noted that in mid-eastern countries when women fight for equal rights, the authorities likewise take away custody of the woman’s children.  It is indeed a sad day when you have to explain to a disabled person, a senior citizen or your own child that you are going to report corruption and fight it and therefore they must be prepared they might not see you again for a long time or ever, but it is something you have to do.

The code of silence is not working.

The day Terry Schiavo Died–how she looked (contents graphic)

An article by Terry Schiavo’s brother.  Terry Schiavo (like many of our seniors narcotized to death) had no diagnosis.  She didn’t voluntarily enter hospice to die, she was an involuntary assisted suicide sanctioned by a judge knowing not what he did.


The story is graphic and tells exactly what it looks like to have a sweet, vunerable woman die of dehydration and malnutrition over 10 days after her feeding tube was removed–BY COURT ORDER.

I’m not Catholic and I realize this is from a RCC website, but it makes correct points.

Someday this judge and all involved will cross over and there they will encounter Terry Schiavo asking why they pulled her feeding tube when all that happened was she was disabled.

This article is dedicated especially to Jerome Larkin, head of the IARDC when complaints were filed by family members to save Alice Gore, Lydia Tyler, Rose Drabik and now our dear Mary G Sykes, the sweetest woman you will meet who did nothing wrong, but when her money ran out (down to $5,000) she was narcotized to death.

The brave soldier Gloria Sykes, fights on for justice for her mother, tho post humous.

Attorneys Larkin, Farenga, Stern, Judges Connors, Stuart and MacCarthy all looked the other way as probate attorneys feasted on Mary’s estate and suppressed discovery on $1 million in valuable coins.  They can easily be found. Everyone in probate and at the ARDC fights it.  $160,000+ went to attorneys fees for Mary. The ARDC can’t deny what they sought to cover up and Ken and I are finally vindicated.  Mary said she wanted to die at home cared for by 2 daughters.  One daughter fought for guardianship and ignored that directive, dragging Mary to Naperville from Norwood Park in Chicago and then selling her home for 25% of value to some tied in real estate company.  Then soon as she got some money spent $97,000 on a nursing home when Gloria cared for Mary in Mary’s own home!  The Farenga-Schmeidel-Stern rip off team then went after Gloria’s own settlement funds for damage to her body, her home and property and of course got it–some $200,000 that went mostly to their attorneys fees.

Mary never wanted any of that.  How about Mary’s wishes?  Is that what Probate court does in Illinois–ignores the wishes of the disabled, in her own handwriting, in validly drawn up Powers of Attorney, in a number of videos posted on Facebook and on Vimeo and then tears apart Gloria?  Shameful Conduct that Larkin and company condones, covers up and supports.  The time is to end all of that.

Some believe our probate courts and ARDC have become hopelessly corrupt. I believe a few removals and escorts out the building of a few key personnel will get others to stand up straight again and yet about a 1/3 of the staff to applaud that justice was finally done when they were afraid to stick their own necks out.

Ken and I and Amu are the only attorneys in 83,000 who have the guts to stand up to this insidious evil and demand something more–that attorneys do their jobs and root out corruption.

Do we need a Terry Schiavo case in Illinois before it gets that far?  A disabled woman who’s feeding tube is removed so ex-hubby can get $800,000 and a judge with a heart of stone?

Why aren’t we requiring our judges and attorneys to take a test for psychopathy before,during and after they take the oath of office?  We have that scientific test now, let’s use it before we destroy all morality and ethics from the Core Values of the US.

We say we are a church going nation, and the Divine Ones clearly demand love, mercy and grace, so why do we expect people with none of that to provide it?

Please put Larkin, Opryszek, Smart, Splitt first down to take the test. Then you can move on to the rest of the IARDC, then to the Judges, then to every attorney and doctor licensed in Illinois.

Crimes against humanity, the elderly and disabled must stop.  The time is now. A call for action and justification of the $20 million + budget of the ARDC is in order.  A call for justification of judges making $150,000 per year or more is in order. Clear the benches of the Daley Center and then move on to 220 S. Dearborn and the federal courts.

If a judge can’t cough up a tear, a bit of sympathy, compassion and understand s/he should not be sitting on the bench and the taxpayers paying for it.  It’s obscene.

Instead of psychiatrists Shaw, Rabin and Amdur declaring every wealthy senior incompetent because they don’t know the name of the President, etc., why are they testing the attorneys and judges in court first for being psychopaths and narcissists?  And then they can undergo the testing.


From Ken Ditkowsky–America must return to its Core Values

I am proud to stand with you, and am proud to use my own name and likeness in advocating for a return to a justice system that we can be proud of and a rebirth of the ‘core’ values of America.      I have no intention of allowing anyone to deprive you, me, or any other citizen, including those who are elderly and/or disabled of our Constitutional Rights and liberties.     Indeed, it may not be politically correct to stand up and be counted when the elite political figures have determined that x or y is not on the approved list, but, if we intend to preserve the America that our forefathers gave us = and fought and died for – we have no choice.
It may be a racist thought to call a public official appointed by the dominant political party a racist because he bars an icon of the Civil Rights movement from an open hearing, and/or complains to the Supreme Court that a lawyer who has a dark hue to his skin is a ‘clear and present’ danger to public safety because he objects to a ‘white’ corrupt jurist.   The fact is the public official is the very model of a modern racist whether he has the seal of approval or not and his conduct is so reprehensible that seal of approval or not – he should be removed from all public funded programs.      Those who act in concert with him should also be removed.   (Yes, I am talking about Jerome Larkin and his lynch mob!)        Until the IARDC reverses it actions in regard to Attorney Amu and makes amends to Diane Nash they will not be able to sweep their perfidy under the rug.
America is a Nation of Laws.    We have a system in which we have sovereign States that are united in a Common Union.    Each state yielded to the Federal Government a portion of its sovereignty in an effort to better protect Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.   (These are the words the ‘compact’ uses).    To better protect the rights of individuals the First Ten Amendments to the Constitution were enacted (Bill of Rights).     Every State has as part of its Constitution a similar statement of core values.   In Illinois it is Article 1 of our Constitution.     The law and the Constitution apply to everyone including those persons who are old, infirm, disabled, and/or targeted by the political and judicial elite for isolation, abuse, exploitation, and finally involuntary assisted suicide.     The law also prohibits the politically ‘gifted’ from exercising their ‘clout!’       Mr. Larkin and those people he acts in concert with may have temporary immunity from the laws of the United States of America – but our job (and the job of all good citizens) is to induce law enforcement to bestow upon all the miscreants a healthy respect of Law and Order.     Quashing their avarice is a prime quest!
We have a smorgasbord of relevant and enforceable laws that are designed to protect you and me and all the other citizens including the elderly and the disabled.    The fact that miscreants such as Larkin and those he acts in concert with him have thwarted the application of these laws does not mean that they are not viable and/or are unenforceable.    They are!     For instances 320 ILCS 20/4 gives immunity to persons who report matters such as occurred in the Sykes and Gore cases from prosecution including disciplinary Actions.    735 ILCS 110/5 is a legislative statement that deplores exactly the actions that the Sykes and IARDC co-conspirators have taken.    The guardianship act 755 ILCS 5/11a – 1 et seq, and in particular 3b, and 10 make it very clear that situations like Sykes, Gore, et al cannot and should not occur.      On the Federal level 42 USCA 1983, 18 USCA 241, 242, 18 USCA 4, 18 USCA 375, 47 USCA 230 **** again outlaw the conduct of the miscreants and the IARDC.
Yes, the law is thwarted over and over again and the miscreants are handsomely paid with public money for their infamy.     Yes, the miscreants are wrongfully protected by the Courts, court agencies, law enforcement, elected officials and others in authority way too often.     Yes, government funds are used to support the miscreant’s War on the Elderly and the Disabled and yes it appears that government is ignoring one pernicious and unconscionable act after another.     Some of us think that our government is rotten to the core and we are surrounded by such corruption that the quest for honor, honesty and fair play is hopeless.     Many more of look at the scenario and believe that the situation is less extreme and given the right combination of events success in defeating the advocates of elder genocide is possible.         I am proud to be in the latter group and to lend my name to the efforts to act within the law to bring Jerome Larkin ***** and all who act in concert with him, including, the public officials in Florida, Ohio, California, **** who have made growing old a dangerous situation to Justice.
Previously on many occasions I have as a citizen demanded that law enforcement do an HONEST investigation of the entire elder cleansing scandal.      I’ve said (and meant it) – take nothing for granted, do not believe me or anyone else.   Examine the facts yourself.     If you find that the facts are as I am others have claimed, then bring the miscreants and all of them before the Bar of Justice.
Yes, I am aware that  Attorney Denison, Attorney Amu, ***** and I have all been prosecuted by the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary commission and the Supreme Court of Illinois has found that this call for an HONEST investigation of the genocide, abuse, and exploitation of the elderly is so unethical that long multi=year suspensions are appropriate.       Yes, I am aware that a lawyer who has little clout who actually abuses or exploits the elderly and the disabled (and breaches his fiduciary relationship) is not considered a threat to the public safety and if punished at all get a slap on the wrist.
In my half century in the practice of law I’ve recognized corruption in the judiciary of Cook County, Illinois and have fought it when it arose to threaten the rights of my clients.      I dealt with some of the jurists who when to jail and/or had to resign because of the Operation Greylord scandal and I death with some of the jurists who escaped punishment.     I am coping with the corrupt jurists, judicial officials’ et al who are engaged in the current scandal and I will continue to fight under my own name and stead to address this corruption.    Certain First principles still prevail.
1)      American Democracy depends on an HONEST and independent judiciary.     What this means is that the trier of fact has to be not only knowledgeable, but willing to apply the facts to the law even if it is not politically correct.     Thus, if a Dred Scott decision were to come before the Court we are looking for a judge to stand up and say that the word “All” means all.    All includes people of color, people who are infirm, people who are old, people who are in our jurisdiction by accident etc.     This also means that we want a judge who is not afraid to disagree with both you and me and the very same time.     In addition we want a judge who will be so independent as to blaze a new trail if it is warranted by the facts and the law.
It should be noted that we have to first address issues of justice in the ‘lower courts’ as the Appellate process is limited and only in exceptional circumstances can one Court ‘second guess’ another.     The rationale is to obtain an independent, honest and knowledgeable decision the litigants are going to have to accept some decisions that they feel are wrong.      We want an honest judiciary and this means that some of the HONEST decisions will go against our position and have to be accepted by us.
In a perfect world there are no Judge Connors, Judge Stuarts, or similar judges who would overlook that lack of compliance with due process and the jurisdictional statutory compliances that occurred in the Mary Sykes case.      In a perfect world no judge would ever have allowed the miscreants to prospect for Gold in the mouth of a 90 year old citizen.
Even the Court order of a corrupt jurist means something.       When Judge Connors In the Mary Sykes case 09 P 4585  (Cook County) knowing she had no jurisdiction – because of the patent fact that 755 ILCS 5/11a – 10 had been intentionally violated by the two guardian ad litem, the guardian and her respective attorneys in every way possible including obviating a hearing, service of summons, service of prior notice, denial of representation  entered an order finding Mary Sykes so incompetent to have every right and privilege forfeited that order was entitled to full faith and credit until it as properly addressed.     That order even though entered without the required hearing was still meaningful.      Yes, it was an inexcusable breach of the Judge’s duties and obligations, but, it was a governmental act.
It is also inexcusable that almost a decade has gone by and Law enforcement has allowed the miscreants to not only get away with their perfidy, but, they continue to ignore the law and reap the benefits of their disrespect for America’s core privilege.     So obscene is the scenario that  Larkin, the two guardians, the guardian, the attorney for the guardian and all who act in concert with them are even given immunity from paying the income taxes that all of the rest of us peons have to pay.      Watch the government allow Mary’s million dollar home (which was sold a judicial sale for a fraction of its value to a crony of the miscreants) be sold at capital gains rates by the thieves.        Watch as no one in government gets excited that another million dollars was stolen by Court appointed fiduciaries from a senior citizen and the appropriate taxes were never paid!     Then turn on the television and listen to the political sponsors of this modern terrorism decry the need for more taxes to be assessed against the public to pay for this very type of government.     No mention will be made that Larkin and his co-conspirators should have contributed as fair share of the deficit, if any.
2)      It takes strength of character to stand up to government and disciplinary commissions that have the power to take away law licenses.      It is no secret that Gloria Sykes employed a score of attorneys, and except for JoAnne Denison and myself every one of the attorneys has run to hide in the woods when the co-conspirators have called to threaten them.     One even turned on her to save his own skin and *****.       Pursuant to Attorney Rule 8.3 I have pointed out that Jerome Larkin, as his overt act in support of the Conspiracy of elder cleansing, has misused his office to attempt to silence both JoAnne and myself.     The Cynthia Farenga letter attaching the copy of the Probate Sharks blog (publishing the demand for an Honest investigation) is stark evidence of the unholy relationship between the miscreant lawyers, corrupt jurists, corrupt judicial officials and corrupt public officials.
3)        The money that is out there to thwart any attempt to rid the system of corruption is just short of incredible.      The tie in to the corrupt health care industry and its huge clout with the political community is a real force and can literally destroy careers.      Few political people will risk such an event.     The industry has major money to invest in candidates, reward its friends, and punish its enemies.   The 700 percent fraud sur charge that the industry charges all health care patients and payers funds a massive violation of civil rights.      I observed in the Brewer case how the nursing homes literally elected an alderman in Chicago.     The most qualified candidate had absolutely no chance even when he hired the most prestigious and most effective election helpers.       It did not even matter that the incumbent was unpopular and polls indicated little support beyond the party faithful.    Indeed,  No one was and is interested.   During the last election nursing homes transported their wards to polling places and made certain that each resident cast his/her vote for the “correct candidate.       Early voting, motor voting, absentee voting, and non-ID voting make certain that the nursing home operator (member of the cabal) can deliver the votes to the candidate of his choice.
The money was readily available to payoff all the opposition and anyone who might make a difference.    What is  very troubling is the fact that much of money is paid directly by the government to the miscreants.
The proceeds that we receive are meager.    The gratitude is microscopic.       The success is fleeting, but, it is labor of love to get the word out and for me to every day I write an “essay” that alerts others to the issues and tries to raise the questions that must be asked’      I could not induce Jerome Larkin to apologize to an Icon of the Civil Rights movement (Diane Nash) for what appeared to be his intentional violation of her civil rights. (He refused her admittance to a public proceeding!)      My personal failure is magnified as not a single media publication even mentioned the fact that a famous icon of the Civil Rights movement and promulgator of the Selma and Washington civil Rights movement was denied entry into a public hearing by Jerome Larkin.   Such is frustrating but it does give me another legitimate complaint that one day I hope will be recognized for what it is, to wit:     A repudiation of the Equal Rights doctrine by the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission and a clear and unequivocal statement of their rejection of the very oath that each attorney accepting employment as an attorney has taken.
I urge the near bankrupt governments to collect the income taxes legitimately due by each and every member of the conspiracy against the elderly and the disabled.      As the fiscal problems become more and more intense it is my hope that our government will govern with an eye toward EQUALITY BEFORE THE LAW and not give special dispensations to the miscreants with clout who are preying on our elderly and disabled.   A good start would be to    MAKE JEROME LARKIN pay his Federal and State Income taxes in the same manner that government makes John and Mary Doe pay their taxes!

From Eliot Bernstein–his thoughts on the Barbara Stone case

Recently Barbara Stone was defaulted on a defamation case by Roy Lustig–but only after a Federal judge kicked the same case out of his courtroom in another jurisdiction.

A witness for Barbara Stone in another courtroom as a handicapped child and the judge, in retaliation took all rights from the mother, so she grabbed the child and left Florida.  Let’s pray for them to be safe.

This is Eliot’s response:

Yes Candice, attorneys are threatened when they speak up and write affidavits like Rochlin, Esq. stating Judge Genden threatened her to get off Barbara’s case and then who more bravely testified to same in a Federal Court only to get slapped with a bar complaint for doing the heroic and RIGHT thing as required by her attorney conduct codes.  She deserved it anyway for helping Barbara.  As for Patty who also wrote affidavit in support of Barbara and more important stating her mother’s plight first hand she should also be targeted and fired from the facility where she was giving Helen hope whilst visiting hell and so serves her right that her son is targeted for removal and torture at the hands of another of goons, bet ya saw that coming.  Then local counsel after seeing what happened to the first attorney then refuses to file further pleadings and thereby precluding you from representing Barbara who gets creamed with NO DUE PROCESS and all this sounds so predictable and kosher in our courts, we should all be proud we have such judicious courts.  And then, lest we not forget the judge who basically terrorizes you at the opening of a hearing for a mistake and threatens you repeatedly with big bad sanctions and a smack bottom baby and rudely interrupts your proceedings with your witnesses basically terrorizing them and silencing them with his compassion and kindness.  Oh yeah, let us not forget Judge Pearlman a true pearl of a judge who reviewed Barbara’s pleading and expressed sympathy and the need for Barbara to get protection for her whistleblowing and who was then filed on for disqualification by PIG ATTORNEY ROY LUSTIG, who was found guilty of FRAUD ON A COURT and LYING and more by the 3rd DCA and thus forced this lovely judge off the case, perhaps a gun went to her head or she was threatened from that Top Judge, ya know Labarga, who disbarred Barbara for her whistleblowing but she deserved it too as she was compassionate to Barbara and so stated on the record.

However, I am shocked you knew people would be targeted for trying to help Barbara, especially since that extortionary behavior is committed by JUDGES and ATTORNEYS who are torturing her mother and her.  And oh, by the way, these esteemed and honorable Judges and lawyers are PSYCHO KILLER CRIMINALS of a mob nature who deserve the respect of the people and Barbara because they are so dignified and act so above the law.  So in a corrupted court system with protection to the top of justice and down, well I guess the odds were good that everyone would cut bait and run from Barbara now that the heat is on, instead of facing sanctions or prison or more to help her, let’s just blame her and Patty and Rochlin.  I guess doing the right thing for Barbara will cost Patty the kid and everyone can say it was her fault for helping Barbara, she deserved it too and her kid.  Just like I have heard in these rants that its Barbara’s fault for speaking truth to power her way, in your FACE, won’t back down.  Or it’s her fault for her not being an obedient girl and playing by the dirty judge murdering her mother for greed, and even worse for her talking back to the judges and exposing them to the bar.  So I guess she had it coming and she should have her mother murdered for that and she should rot in prison and we can all say well her mother had it coming for Barbara’s acts and Barbara should have done what all the others here do and watch their loved ones killed and their families wealth stolen instead of rocking that apple cart or making the big bad judge mad.   Makes me wonder if those affidavits everyone says do nothing and showing up in court in support that everyone is too busy for may actually be having profound effect in Barbara’s case in showing how scary and dangerous these mobsters are and how they will retaliate against anyone in their way.  This is why they need to be put down like rabid dogs, as in criminally tried, convicted, fried and then stripped of all their ill-gotten gains.  Makes me think of what heroes all these people who stood in support of Barbara and did the right thing and did not cower like you and do not turn on her now but in fact yell louder and fighter harder at any cost and for that Patty is added to my HEROIC PATRIOTS, anyone else wanna join?  Now my question is who is not afraid to help Barbara and fear no evil or repercussion and be next up to be hunted by the judges and corrupted to the core lawyers (criminals disguised as lawyers who fear the light and exposure?

Anyone of the disbarred lawyers or lawyers in this rant want to help Patty Pro Bono on character, I know she needs it bad. eb

from Eliot Bernstein.

Please note, I constantly have to remind these victims who are terrorized by corrupt officials, judges and attorneys that they are NOT responsible for anyone’s evil or bad deeds.  As Sarah Barrielles says, “what good has silence ever done you?” and she wants us to speak the truth and be Brave too.

Too many victims feel guilty when they stand up to crooked judges, attorneys, a probate system, their idiot family members who shut up and look the other way in a feeble “hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil” manner that creates and fosters a code of silence.

Well, 18 USC sec 4 does not allow ANYONE to shut up when a string of felonies are being committed.  Many lawyers, in fact, recently have been proseucted by the feds for shutting up when they knew a crime was being committed and did not report it. (Note the atty disciplinary boards and esp. Jerome Larkin in Illinois loves it when lawyers shut up when they see a string of felonies in probate.  It seems this is the real definition of “probate exception”–let judges and attorneys steal and abuse and do nothing.

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

18 USC sec 4

I and this blog continually relay information concerning the corruption in US governement with a string of emails to the FBI.  You too can send along your concerns to: askdoj@usdoj.gov or get the local FBI office email for a particular dept. by calling them. You should be able to get an email to court corruption and to civil rights.  If you are a victim, go there with a list of the statutes violated and demand to file a complaint and don’t leave until you get a complaint number.  That complaint number will give you victim’s rights.  It might be worthwhile to hire a lawyer to draft up a criminal complaint to hand to the FBI so all they have to do is investigate and then file with your affidavit or declaration the statements are true.



from Candice Schwager:

If I ever had a question about Barbara Stone’s case I’d say the Defendants have cleared it up. My witnesses have been threatened and retaliated against for testifying and to keep them from helping Barbara. Her criminal lawyer was 2000 miles away the day before a critical hearing and told me he was withdrawing immediately. Deborah Rochlins law license was threatened after the judge called her cell. And the day before my federal court hearing everyone left the state on vacation to Alaska and far away destinations. Now a witness has been told they’re taking her son but won’t say where. My local counsel refused to file my pleadings and told me her office was closed down for medical emergency indefinitely

Date: Aug 26, 2015 4:34 PM
In my early years in the practice of law I was drawn to the issue of abuse of children.   I thus did some work for the Juvenile Protective league and joined Kiwanis.   What I ran into was absolutely shocking.   Juveniles were housed with delinquents and the charities would not accept parens patrie jurisdiction without a court order.   Thus, a child in need of help was turned away by the faith based institutions.
One of early cases involved an Evanston, Illinois policeman who saw a five year child late a night wandering the streets.   His parents had tossed him out of the home.   He knew from experience that the children would be a burden on any police station that he brought him, and would probably not even receive a meal.   Thus, he took the child home with him where they clothe, bathe, and gave the children a clean place to sleep.   Yes, he violated regulations, but he did what any human being would do.   The next morning he brought the child into the station and turned him over the DCFS.    (It was also against regulations for a white policeman to become a foster parent for a child of some other race).   He was given a 30 day suspension without pay.
The Lerner Newspaper editor called me and asked me if there was anything I could and/or would do.   Within the hour I was standing before the Chief of the Evanston Police Department confronting the Police Union representative and the Police command.   Within minutes of my arrival my anger was demonstrated by a deep voice and clenched fist.   The suspension was reduced to a week with pay, and finally when the policeman’s wife stated that she wished to adopt the boy – zero, provided that gambit was never mentioned again.
The frustration that I endured was incredible and I went from playing basketball once a week to twice.   The social workers I dealt with cried when they told me NO.  I read the riot act so often that it lost it actually lost its effectiveness; however, Mary Audy (Wife of the man they named the juvenile facility after) provided me with credibility and enhanced my effectiveness.   She also gave me courage to go nose to nose with the charities.    
The problem that we faced in 1962 etc was parents who could care less about their children and found that they were an unwanted burden.   Many were surprised that their sexual activities produced a product.  Contraception was frowned on by the orthodox Catholics and Jews, and **** (you know the drill).   The pre-school children were literally growing up on their own, and when they reached school age everyone expected the teachers to be teacher and parent.   Responsibility was non-existent in many homes.
there were also poor families that barely had survival money.   The newspapers and the media made it worse when they highlighted welfare cheaters, some who literally had children so that they could collect Aid for Dependent Children handouts.   Some woman had large numbers of children all by different fathers.
social workers had a short lifespan before they burned out, and case loads that were intolerable.   700 active cases was an average load for a beginning worker.   The traffic court was more efficient than the juvenile court.
Diligence cases were also assigned to the depend children social workers and many were even more heart rendering.   Beautiful children were placed in institutions where they trained to become hardened criminals.   The sheer volume was staggering.
As an attorney for the Chinese American community I was asked by one of the patriarchs of the community to appear in a juvenile proceeding involving a young man who became a bit friendly with his girl friend and her father – a local political figure *****.    While I was waiting for my case to be called, I wandered into the courtroom.   The ‘defendant’ was a nice looking 9 year old.   The Judge asked the States Attorney: “can I see his rap sheet?”   I snickered and every eye turned to me.   The States Attorney handed a copy of the rap sheet to the Judge and one to me.   It contained multi pages and listed his arrest and convictions  – juveniles do not have convictions – but I cannot recall at this time what they were called.   The one that stuck out in my mind was a ‘rape’ charge.   I did not know that a 9 year old knew the difference between boys and girls.
Elder Cleansing cases are easy pickings compared to these juvenile proceedings.   The sheer volume of matters so so obscene that Solomon would tear his hair out by the roots.   A judge who tried to do his job properly would be more abused at the end of day that Mary Sykes was after a year.   A judge would did not care would do irreparable damage which would haunt him/her forever.    The task is impossible – but it has to be done.
I hope that you all can work out a solution for this problem – One full day in juvenile court and the “Chinese” limitations on pregnancy start to look attractive.   How does society protect itself from irresponsible people who bring unwanted children into this world to be abused, exploited and isolated in juvenile facilities and/or jail.    
I burned out after a couple of years.   I continued to work at Kiwanis until I had a CEO of a charity tell me that the reason that he had such a large salary was “without him” the charity would collect no money.   therefore 80% of the collections went into administrative costs.




Throughout history, mankind has been faced with the problem of what do you do with someone when they have lived beyond their useful life.    As most people did not live long, it was a minor problem; however, the advent of modern health care, better nutrition, and a bunch of other factors people started living longer and longer.    The problem is become acute and move and more people suffer heinous illnesses and require greater and greater care.     This problem masks a new industry that has developed.    The least desirable people in our society have discovered respectability without pain and without resort to overt criminal activities.

After WW2 as part of fringe benefit packages companies offered ‘health insurance.’  Suddenly one of the poorest paying professions became one of the most lucrative.    The dedicated physician who donated his time to free clinics for the poor wherein anybody with a problem was welcome disappeared.   The concept that anyone who felt ill could go to the nearest hospital and receive treatment free disappeared to be replaced with insurance cards, Medicaid cards, etc.     The idea of refusing care to a human being was foreign; however, today, the University of Chicago hospitals avoids having a trauma center because it allows it to avoid treating gun shot victims – who might not pay for services.    St. Francis Hospital (where my father and uncle donated thousands of hours of time) will not treat a patient who has no insurance, no welfare card, and no visible way of paying for services.

However, if you could pay the ‘coverage’ of the carrier is the limit.    The twentyfive dollar aspirin is not rare.     Rare is the hospital bill that a patient could pay out of pocket – though individual practitioners are not necessarily compensated dollar for dollar.

The urge of hospitals to be profit centers gave rise to another industry – the nursing home.    This facility at first was a poor relative to the hospital and competed directly with ‘home care.’    Home care being defined as care administered by the family out of love or necessity.      The nursing home industry grew with the advent of insurance and government subsidy.     The hospital still was a profit center, but, the nursing home increased its importance and profitability by in essence becoming an ‘old folks home.’     If Johnny wanted to warehouse grandmother, it and ‘day care centers’ grew into vogue.     Long-term insurance and easy to reach assets made it practical.

(NB.  I am going to assume a degree of knowledge as to the operation of these facilities.    The group of operators who dominate the industry in a particular locale are referred to as the cabal.     These operators are politically savvy, very ‘smart,’ and very knowledgeable.   They hire very clouted lawyers and have the ability to fix any case that might be filed in the Court system.)

The nursing home abuses and role in the saga of ‘elder cleansing’<zzz!–[if !supportfootnotes]–=””>[1]<zzz!–[endif]–> has been a systemic element in the health care industry growth.    Hundreds of seniors find themselves in ‘care’ and are warehoused for the benefit of the nursing home owners.    So competitive is the business that ‘finder’s fees’ are quite common in the industry.   The Federal government watching from the sidelines periodically calls these gratuities “kickbacks” and indicts a small operator.    The program conducted in the nursing home is so foolproof that the criminally insane in many instances are housed right next to grandmother.   Both are drugged out of their skins.

Supply of patients is a problem for the avarice of the operators.     Warehousing costs between $1000.00 to $1500.00 a month and routine nursing home charges are approximately $8000.00 a month.    To keep a supply of patients (at $8000 a month) it is not usual for select lawyers and judges to be selected for rewards.    Investing in a nursing home owned by one of the cabal of top tier operators is also very lucrative.    A limited partner (who invests upwards of $100,000) is usually promised a 16 percent return on investment.     For approximately ten years the profit flows, however, thereafter, it reduces itself dramatically until it is gone.   The original investment is usually returned upon the sale of the facility.

Friends of the cabal are rewarded handsomely.     Enemies are punished.      The corruption is absolute and you are either a friend of an enemy.

The guardianship relationship  755 ILCS 5/11a – 1 et seq (in Illinois) is a vehicle for certain favored lawyers to 1) make a living, 2) service favored nursing homes and hospice facilities, and 3) maintain control in the Courts so that the cabal does not have to reinvent the wheel each time they are sued or a hue and cry is raised as to nursing home conditions.      It is also a method for dishonest lawyers and judges to profit from the troubles of others as well as cash in on the fact that so many of the elderly have large estates that a just prime for the taking.

Starting at square one.

“ Guardianship shall be utilized only as is necessary in promotion the well-being of the disabled person to protect  him from neglect, exploitation or abuse and to encourage development of his maximum self-reliance and independence.   Guardianship shall be ordered only to the extent necessary by the individual’s actual mental and adaptive imitations.  “ (Illinois Probate Act)

The Americans with Disability Act provides for “reasonable accommodation” for the disabled person, and the Constitution worries about due process, liberty, freedom of speech, protection of property etc.     It is very difficult to operate a predatory health care facility or other enterprise under such circumstances, Ergo a new cast of characters  is brought into the mix.     To protect the dishonest judges and lawyers the Attorney Disciplinary Commissions are recruited.      Their job is to protect the miscreants from HONEST investigations by law enforcement.      They do so by filing disciplinary actions against any lawyer who wanders in the Probate Division of the Circuit court and is upset sufficiently to communicate to law enforcement what he observes.

The code of silence is necessary because contrary to the clear statement quoted supra concerning the nature of the guardianship and the Federal limitations of the Americans With Disabilities Act an adjudication of incompetency is a death sentence for the elderly or the disabled person.    The senior or the disabled person becomes a non- person.     Routinely,  the guardian isolates the victim from his/her prior life and family and places the ward (victim) into a facility wherein contact with the outside world is severely limited.    The assets are stripped from the victim and every dime that can be extracted from the victim’s insurance or other benefits is removed.     A dwelling is ordered sold by the dishonest judge, and it is sold to a ‘friend’ of the cabal.     The price is a fraction of the value, thus, when there is a legitimate sale further down the line the gain is a capital gain.    The purchase price of the sham sale is usually awarded to the miscreants as attorney fees.

The Sykes case 09 P 4585 (Circuit Court of Cook County) is a text book example of ‘elder cleansing.      Mary Sykes was an active articulate and very competent elderly lady of advanced years.    She conducted her own banking, drove her own vehicle, and was active in her church and garden club.     Mary discovered that her elder daughter was stealing from her and wound up in the Circuit Court seeking a protective order against the daughter.

This case was ripe for the picking and the miscreants did not miss the opportunity.    The daughter filed a guardianship proceeding after forcibly removing Mary to DuPage county.    The guardian ad litem and the attorney for the daughter orchestrated the guardianship proceeding so that all dissent was eliminated.    755 ILCS 5/11a – 10 is Illinois’ senior protection against such conduct.    It requires 14 days prior notice of any incompetency hearing  to not only the alleged incompetent but the closest family members, i.e. children, spouse, siblings etc.          In the Mary Sykes case – even though 5/11a – 10 is jurisdictional it was totally ignored.     The younger daughter and Mary’s two sisters (siblings) were not notified of any hearing.     In fact no competency hearing was held and no determination as to the degree of assistance Mary might need was ever  made.      The hearing was obviated by an agreement between the petitioner, her attorney and the two guardian ad litem – they got together and submitted a draft order to the corrupt judge who signed it<zzz!–[if !supportfootnotes]–=””>[2]<zzz!–[endif]–>.

When Gloria Sykes complained, one of the guardian ad litem accused her of stealing about a million dollars from her mother.    It appears that Gloria had recovered an insurance settlement from her homeowners carrier and was using the money to repair to covered casualty.      Arbitrarily the GAL claimed that this money was Mary’s and should not be used to repair the home.       Gloria’s attorneys were frightened off.   JoAnne Denison appeared on the scene – she was not frightened so the Guardian ad Litem arbitrarily claimed that she had a conflict of interest – it appeared that she once notarized a document that Mary signed.     Ms. Denison was disqualified.   Some similar technique was used to make certain that Mary was not afforded any legal representation.

The guardian ad litem complained to the corrupt Judge that Mary was agitated when she saw her family, and the Judge ordered supervised visitation.    A corporation related to the cabal was designated as the supervisor.    This corporation’s fees were outrageous and patently obnoxious.    Amongst the charges approved were charges relating to a dog that Mary allegedly owned.    Mary’s assets were expropriated.    Over a million dollars in gold coins disappeared when removed from a safety deposit box.    The Guardian did not have a key because only Mary’s name and Gloria’s name appeared on the box so she drilled out the lock and did not report any of this activity or inventory to the court.  Value antiques and cash disappeared  – they were partially inventoried.  *****

As similar scenario was followed in the Alice Gore case.     The Gore case was particularly horrid as it sunk to some new lows.     The Guardian ad Litem promulgated the prospecting for Gold in Alice’s mouth.  29 teeth were removed so that the gold could be harvested before Alice’s death was arranged.     The family was so carefully isolated from Alice that they did not discover her death for about a week after she died.   Inquiries by family were ignored.    The gold was never inventoried.

The Jaycox case was another Illinois fiasco.     Mr. Jaycox was never incompetent.    He was admitted to a nursing home because there was no one to take care of him and he had severe leg cramps which were debilitating.      It turned out that a benign medication that Jaycox was administered had a side effect of severe cramps.     (Had anyone read the bottle supplied with the medication Jaycox would have been cured).     Jaycox had severe depression as at 80 years old he lost every dime of his substantial estate in a Con scheme.    He and his significant other were essentially wiped out!      Our health care community did not take the time to look for side effects of preventative medications as the cause of Mr. Jaycox’s illness.

The nursing home augmented the problem.     It is common practice for nursing homes to administer chemicals designed to “keep the patient calm.”      Doping is necessary as live people require live caregivers and complain about the quality and quantity of food, housekeeping, and quality of life.    A zombie can be wheeled into the hall and such called Physical Therapy,  or visited by pseudo medical personnel etc.      The ‘dope’ also had a side effect of severe leg cramps.

Thus Jaycox was in agony most of the time.   The cabal (nursing home) found that it was no long before Jaycox’s insurance stopping paying, and a search discovered that his assets were in the hands of a criminal who was being prosecuted for his crimes in the Federal Court.      Thus, a guardianship was called for.     Jaycox was not incompetent, and did not want a guardian.    He hired me.     With my appearance the guardianship started to go South!     It was useless to ‘talk to me’ and intimidating me was already known to be very difficult.     Thus, the miscreants were compelled to go to Court.     Unfortunately, I demanded a hearing and the Judge assigned the case was not going to put her neck on the line.

On the date of the hearing Jaycox fell out of bed and  hit his head.       He could not attend, and I would not waive his presence.    The Judge ordered the hearing to be held in Jaycox’s room at the nursing home.     Fortuitously, a day or so before the hearing Mr. Jaycox again fell and this time he broke his hip.     He was in surgery at Swedish Covenant Hospital.

The hearing was removed to the Hospital.    Jaycox was wheeled into the room, but he was in such pain that he could not testify or observe the proceedings.      The  Shrink who certified that Jaycox was totally incompetent and unable to manage his affairs had made a special trip to the hospital and the Judge wanted to accommodate him.    I agreed.

The hearing was wild.   The cabal’s attorney did not know how to present an expert witness and the Court had no choice but to sustain each objection.    Rather than prolong the hearing the Judge asked me I would object to her examining the witness.   I had no objection.    The Judge did a masterful job of presenting the Cabal’s case and it was very clear that in the opinion of the expert Mr. Jaycox had no mental capacity whatsoever.

When a proceeding is conducted in a manner that follows the rules, even the ‘likes’ of yours truly is afforded the opportunity to ‘play lawyer’ and cross examine the witness.     I did!    I asked a couple of benign questions and then got to business.    A person who undergoes surgery must consent to the surgery.    A hospital cannot helter skelter go around cutting people up.    Thus I inquired as to who authorized the surgery on Mr. Jaycox.     Mr. Expert testified that Jaycox had.     I shut up and moved for a finding.

By that motion, I cost Mr. Jaycox his life!     Robert Jaycox almost immediately contacted an Aspirated pneumonia which is fatal!

There was no inquiry, no protest, quickly Jaycox was cremated and as there was no estate *****.

This is the future!   Unless law enforcement does it job and protects us from the corrupt lawyers, judges, judicial officials and corrupt public officials.     The attempt to shut off protest or discussion of this problem has been very successful.     Lawyers who speak out have their licenses to practice law pulled.    A judge who complains becomes once again a private person.     Law enforcement people who do not toe the line are walking a beat in Far Rockaway.      The time for an HONEST investigation and Honest and vigorous law enforcement is now before it is too late.

The remedy is quite simple.     In Sykes about two million dollars is unaccounted for.    The Department of the Treasury (IRS) and the Illinois Department of Revenue are each owed substantial taxes and penalties by the co-conspirators.   (See 18 USCA 371 for the definition of conspirator).      Each uninventoried dollar most probably was not reported on the 1040 tax form.      Thus, I suspect that substantial income taxes, interest and penalties are due.    Conspirators have joint and several liability not only for the damages, but for the taxes, interest and penalties.     In Illinois Mr. Jerome Larkin and some lawyers employed by the IARDC have committed overt actions in pursuance of the conspiracy.    An assessment of the taxes, interest and penalties (civil) will stop the ‘cover up’ and send a message.  NB.  In civil tax collection the taxpayer has the burden of proof.     Without the protection of Mr. Larkin and the IARDC the miscreants will be at the mercy of the Rule of Law.

Elder cleansing is defined as  a combination of the isolation, abuse, and exploitation of a senior citizen.   It is usually followed by an involuntary assisted suicide.

The Sheriff of Cook County, Illinois could find in his files and in the Court file no evidence that Mary was ever served with summons in the incompetency proceeding.    The particular summons required by 755 ILCS 5/11a – 10 was not a printed form of the Clerk of the Circuit Court.    The required summons was never filed in the Court.

From Atty Sassower in New York–policing the judiciary and eliminating rampant corruption

the link:
Published on Aug 25, 2015

“New York’s court-controlled system of attorney discipline cannot survive an evidentiary presentation, ” declared Center for Judicial Accountability Director Elena Sassower. In powerful testimony at the August 11, 2015 public hearing of New York’s Commission on Statewide Attorney Discipline, Sassower offered up boxes and folders filled with evidence that New York’s attorney disciplinary system is “dysfunctional, politicized, and corrupt”. Will the Commission confront this and other evidence? – consistent with its mission of a “top-to-bottom”, “comprehensive” review? Based on this footage, what do you think? And what do you think about the documented evidence presented by Sassower and others? You can examine it, for yourself, from the Center for Judicial Accountability’s website, http://www.judgewatch.org, accessible via the prominent homepage link “Confronting the Front: The Commission on Statewide Attorney Discipline” or via this direct link: http://www.judgewatch.org/web-pages/s… You be the judge – and share your comments below. And you can watch Sassower’s post-hearing interview here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJKZa…

A must see video.  In 18 minutes this wonderful, wonderful woman makes a ton of excellent points.

Why isn’t the NY Bar association audited by an independent auditor to determine that valid citizen complaints are not being routinely dismissed?

Can’t we have that in Illinois?

Ms. Sassower is a second generation whistleblower.  Her father was disbarred for reporting corruption and standing up to a judge where corporate assets went missing and undistributed to those that were owed them.  Her mother was indefinitely suspended without notice, hearing, complaint, trial, appeal or even a chance to appeal. What justice is that?

What an invigorating and eye opening video.  Apparently Ms. Sassower worked for years to get a public hearing. What did they giver her?  Onlly 15 minutes and then the state bar walked out and security came right away to tell her to leave.

This is the treatment the public gets for a shopping cart chock with files that should have been studied?  Honest complaints that should have resulted in discipline?

Shame on the New York bar.

But I like the idea of a public hearing, of public accountability.

In the end, Ms. Sassower had to bet for a few more minutes, but all she got was security to escort her away.  And in the end, the NY State Bar staff walked out on her and did not support her.  The audience applauded her efforts.

What a heronie.  Or wait, was she just one of the few attorneys in NY actually doing her job?

A huge thanks for Eliot Bernstein to send this link to me.

And please watch or hear the 18 min. video then post a comment of support for Ms. Sassower’s wonderful efforts to clean up New York


From Eliot Bernstein on the importance of Personal Jurisdiction

Treason Ruling
“We (judges) have no more right to decline the exercise of jurisdiction which is given, than to usurp that which is not given. The one or the other would be treason to the Constitution.” –Cohens v. Virginia, (1821), 6 Wheat. 264 and U.S. v. Will, 449 U.S. 200.


From: kenneth ditkowsky [mailto:kenditkowsky@yahoo.com]

Many of the acts complained of by Jerome Larkin, head of the Ill. Atty and Discipline Comm, Sharon Opryszek, Leah Black Guiterrez and Stephen Splitt, senior litigators there do not consider what they do treasonous (dismissing scores of valid consumer complaints regarding corruption in the courts–situations of fraud, conversion, theft (civil) embezzlement (civil) and other tortious actions) because they will not go after clouted attorneys (Peter Schmeidel, Deborah Jo Soehlig, Cynthia Farenga, Adam Stern (Sykes case, et. al) CP, TR (Al Frake case for knowingly drugging him and using chemical restraints on him, selling his home when he wants to go home, etc.) Lyle Harrison (for allowing Judges Flannel and Broach to imprison him for 7 months, his brother Andrew for 2 months and their past brother Pastor Roger for 2 weeks merely for filing counter claims, while pretending it was something else (UPL) and thus violating their civil rights.

These victims and others consider these to be highly treasonous acts (not upholding the US and Illinois constitutions, watching others commit a string of felonies against innocent citizens and doing nothing.  Then actively participating in trials to deny myself and Ken Ditkowsky our Constitutional rights (US and Illinois) to warn the public of this behavior soon as it occurs.

Now we are right.  Mary Sykes was just narcotized to death on May 23, 2015 and dumped in a grave without a funeral but with quick embalmning soon as the money ran out ($5,000)

Someone came to me yesterday and said that he worked in a nursing home to pay his way thru college and everytime the family could not pay, everytime the govt shut off checks, the staff were told by accounting to narcotize the senior!

How many times does this go on each and every day.

We need a federal law that once a senior has no assets, that they be given no narcotics, place in no hospice until reviewed by a hospital committee that the act is not in fact murder.

(This contrasts with Europe where a couple of countries in a T4 Hitler like style have passed involuntary euthanasia bills).

The murder of our seniors and disables is nothing but murder. Those who participate or, worst yet, cover up (Larkin, Opryszek, Smart, Splitt, Sykes case attys, Drabik case attys, Tyler case attys, Al Frake Attys (attempted murder), etc. may also be found guilty of treason and conspiracy 42 USC sec 371)

What they are all thinking, I don’t understand.

Ken and I were right about the Sykes case. Mary is gone, having been murdered soon as the money ran out.  About $150,000 went to attorneys fees.  $200,000 of Gloria’s money was stolen for attorneys fees.  Another $90,000 went to nursing home fees–a place Mary specified in her advance directives she did not want.  This was judges Connors, Stuart and MacCarthy.

Ken and I were right.  Mary would be murdered when the money ran out and her estate would go to attorneys fees and a nursing home.  NOT for anything she wanted in her estate plan.  That was tossed aside by a greedy guardian and her greedy attorneys and the judges that act in concern with them.

MacCarthy went storming down the halls screaming at Gloria she wanted to jail her merely because Gloria brought her service dog to court.  He is trained to bark as a last resort when stress levels indicate lasting damage to Gloria.  MacCarthy has just denied Gloria’s ADA request for accommodation to Gloria and her mother and her Service dog and did so in a nasty and wrongful manner.  Why is this woman still judge?

The blood of Mary is now on the hands of Larkin, Opryszek, (not so) Smart, Splitt, Guiterrez. We warned them.  How could anyone kill or endanger a 95 year old widow?

It is time for Larkin to go to the Illinois Supreme Court, apologize to myself and Ken and drop and withdraw all the charges.

Otherwise, a serious evil and corruption permates our probate hallways.


Illinois Approves Camera monitoring in nursing homes…


The only problem is, the senior and the roommate must consent and you know that these “professional” guardians (of death) will never consent.  Also, there will be sign posted the room is electronically monitored, so it will be interesting to see if more seniors die more quickly in non-monitored rooms.

The nursing homes should love this because they will know right away whom to blame and whom to fire if there is a problem.

It also does not say if the family members will get a real time feed of what the staff is really doing to their loved one.

It also does not address the problem of seniors being narcotized to death and then there is no tox screen and no autopsy, no preservation of hair and nails for long term drugging.

All that needs to happen too.

Illinios must keep its seniors safe.  The narcotizing of seniors for money has to end.

So far the looting of estates, missing assets and the repeated quashing of service to the senior and family members (Sykes), the fact that the head of the Ill. ARDC Jerome Larkin and his staff (Opryszek, Smart, Splitt) looks the other way when seniors are narcotized to death (Sykes, Gore, Drabik, Baker, etc.) is all wrong.  It has to end.

Prayers for Barbara Stone–another Illegal, Unconstitutional arrest by corrupt courts in Florida!

Please everyone pray for Barbara Stone.  All she has done is try to protect her mother.  She is not responsible for this evil in her life.  She has been wrongfully imprisoned just like Andrew, Lyle and Pastor Roger Harrison in Illinois for merely filing counterclaims in a very, very corrupt case.  Randy Robinson is still under threat of imprisonment because he is trying to protect his mother from a very abusive guardianship and “professional atty guardian” (of death)–Mary Rowan in Detroit.

Also, please find out what you can send her and if you can, send her books and letters talking about the case.  Encourage her to file grievances for her wrongful imprisonment.  The more jailers know she is a law abiding citizen just trying to see her mother and protect her from evil and harm, the more likely they will drop the method of imprisonment.

Lyle and Andrew went to court last Friday and did not get imprisoned again, despite the fact Lyle filed a Motion to Reconsider the dismissal of his counter claims.  The judges (Flannel and Broch) have threatened to put him in jail for the rest of their lives if they file counter claims against his corrupt friends who stole 1400 acres ($14 million) in prime farmland fell off the inventor of Harry Harrison, who died without issue and the property should have passed to the father of 14 children, including Lyle and Andrew.  Now Hardware State Ban and US Bank owe these children about $43 million in damages for the theft.

These are shameful cases.

Now that I am not practicing state law, though, I am going to try to help these victims all write books and get them published.

The books are on my website.  Check out Probate Pirates by Ms. Krisi Hood, Against her Will by John Wyman and others, all available on Amazon.

Gloria Sykes is working on her probate book and documentary soon.  I hope she gets finished so that will be on this website.

Take care


From Glenda Martinez in Florida

Dear friends for Barbara,

just received the information of Barbara Stone’s location after her arrest.
Robert Sarhan informed us that she is at the Metro West Detention Center, located at 13850 NW 41 st., Miami, Fl .  Robert does not know how long she is being detained for.

Barbara’s detainee number is 15014-1471. She is allowed visitors on Sundays 4 to 9pm, no phone calls and no laptop allowed.

Robert said Barbara Stone  has a Hearing Monday (tomorrow) at 9 am at the 1351 NW 12 ave. Criminal Court, Miami, Fl. at that address.

Hope some of us can help her out and bring her things, now that we know where she is.

Glenda and Alan Smith

From the Wall Street Journal–the more offensive the speech, the more it must be free

From the Wall Street Journal yesterday.


And in the time honored Jerome Larkin, the article describes in detail why Melissa Smart was citing improper case precedent when she started out my trial with this blog is “like yelling fire in a crowded theater”.  Of course, this blog is not the same as that and that standard quote by Justice Holmes was made at the turn of the 19th century and had to do with war time speech and divulging war strategy information.  It since has been replaced with the speech must incite its audience to imminent violence, and in fact do so.

One more case misquote from the ARDC who dismisses out of hand the complaints in the Sykes case (where everyone predicted Mary’s assets would be liquidated primarily for attorney’s fees–they were, she would be put in a nursing home a place she did not want to be–she was, her estate would be drained and then she would be narcotized to death).

This blog is someone wrong.  But killing a senior when the money runs out is not.  Nope, no reason to investigate that.  But we have a long line of cases in Illinois–when the money runs out, the senior must die–Sykes, Tyler, Gore, Drabik, Rector, Jaycocx, Baker, etc.

Seniors that know better run and hide when the money runs out.

Seniors heavily drugged and still at risk and the ARDC looks the other way:  Thomas and Frake.

From Ken Ditkowsky:

Is it not time for an investigation into why JEROME LARKIN and certain Justices of the Supreme Court of Illinois appear to have so much invested in the corruption that exists at the Daley Center in Chicago, Illinois.
The petition by the IARDC claiming the public would be harmed by allowing JoAnne Denison and Lanre Amu to practice law while the wired cases (coverups) continued against them has to be itself investigated.   The Wall Street Journal article is clear that such speech is protected.

Taking away a patient’s right to sue via the Arbitration Clause


from Ken Ditkowsky

The article from the Register addresses the situation in which a senior is placed in a nursing home = it does not specifically address the placement by a guardian for profit (i.e. a Court appointed guardian).

It you follow the political news, when political figure finds himself/herself in an unfavorable limelight the weaseling begins which results in the drip, drip, drip torture of expose after expose.   The ‘elder cleansers’ all have been playing the system for a long time and the growth of opposition parties to the War on the Elderly and the Disabled has not gone un-noticed.
These are very smart people.   The have enlisted cadres of corrupt jurists, judicial officials, and public officials to do their dirty work.     As Trump and Clinton both have pointed out – dollars talk.    Here in Illinois a simple request for an HONEST INVESTIGATION gathers outraged ire and even disbarment of the attorneys making such a First Amendment Request.   Not even the Court’s of last resort have the integrity to resist the miscreants.   The State is bankrupt, but tax collectors look the other way as billions of dollars are extorted, more billions are stolen, and government coffers are raided for additional billions.  The Watchdogs of the public house are deaf, dumb, blind, and out to lunch.
The state of affairs is about to change.   Even without media attornment or publicity the general public is learning that Mr. Jerome Larkin (as an example) owes taxes on his conspiratorial receipt of billions of dollars stolen from seniors and disabled people by the corrupt lawyers and judges he protects. The public is upset that Larkin is immune from paying the very taxes that they would have pay and little by little outrage is building.
The promulgators of the health care fraud syndromes whether nursing home operators (and owners) or just run of mill criminals know that once the public gets to know the facts they will be the focus of some very aggressive law enforcement.   In the last century tar and feathers was a favor method of dealing with the miscreants.   Thus, their ‘wired’ Courts are going to either do the jobs that the public expects or become unwired.
These facts may be obscured to us, but not our opponents.   Thus, they are ‘short circuiting’ the outrage by redirecting it.    Janet Phelan alerted us to the licensing gambit.  (NB. licensing only the guardians for profit and providing the public with another benign regulatory body that is designed to protect the elder cleansing industry).    The arbitration ploy with proper safeguards to protect the pre-determination for the health care provider is a easy sell.    
Who could complain to the following formula:
1) the parties agree to pick from a panel of arbitrators their arbitrator – i.e. a retired judge!
2) from a panel of arbitrators each side picks an arbitrator and the two arbitrators pick a third.
Think for a minute?   Who do you know who is an arbitrator?    For that matter – who do you know who is lawyer who does arbitration?    Let me assure you – the nursing home operators know quite a few of those fellows.   The well is “salted” from day one.
Let’s go a step further.   YOU are not a party – the party is Grandma.   She has been adjudicated incompetent and her guardian – appointed by that corrupt judge – is going to pick the arbitrator.    Do I have to draw the picture any further!
The object is to frustrate your protestations and create a delusion – suggesting that your complaint is frivolous and you are ‘nut!’     Article alerts us to yet another aspect of the War on the Elderly and the Disabled and why we have to urge Attorney General Lynch to start making some meaningful indictments that will encourage the health care industry (and in particular the elder cleansers) to just follow rule of law.
As I’ve stated many times before – I like the idea of Jerome Larkin and his co-conspirators being required by the Civil branch of the Department of the Treasury to just pay the income taxes, interest and penalties that they owe jointly and severally.   

From Ken Ditkowsky–a letter to the Illinois Treasurer–collect the taxes on ill gotten gains

Dear Mr. Freichs – Illinois treasurer.
Why is Illinois refusing to collect the taxes due from the miscreants who are using our courts to isolate, abuse and exploit the elderly and the disabled.   A breach of a fiduciary relationship is a taxable event.   A conspiracy to breach a fiduciary relations is taxable jointly and severally for each member of the conspiracy.

Now let’s get down to specifics.   Here in Cook County acting in concert two guardian ad litem, a guardian, an attorney, a judge and some other miscreants failed to inventory or report a million dollars in gold coins that we removed by the plenary guardian from a safety deposit box of the Ward and the younger daughter of the Ward.  (See Cook County case 09 P 4585)    A total of approximately $3 million dollars was stolen.

Jerome Larkin jointed the conspiracy when I and several other lawyers called for an HONEST investigation.   The Honest investigation was refused, but when we persisted at the urging of guardian ad litem Farenga and Stern the IARDC making obviously false and untrue statements sought and obtained our suspensions from the practice of law.    Pursuant to 755 ILCS 5/11a – 10 no jurisdiction over Mary Sykes or her estate was ever obtained – however, by obfuscation and a quite of bit of frugality with truth, Larkin and his co-conspirators assiduously sought to keep the truth from surfacing.

Illinois is in a financial crisis – it law enforcement and the IDR does its job the crisis is solved as Sykes is not the only case in which this type of fiduciary theft (by conspiracy) has occurred.    It is so obscene that in the Alice Gore case the miscreants actually when prospecting for gold in the mouth of Alice Gore – the found gold and harvested it!    Of course their booty was not inventoried – so it is very clear that it was never inventoried and no taxes were paid on the loot.

Mr. Larkin and his co-conspirators covered up this outrage as well.

I invite you to read the MARYGSYKES, Probate Sharks, and NASGA blogs.   Mr. Larkin will not approve, but even though Illinois government does recognize Article 1 of the Illinois Constitution or the Bill of Rights most States in the United States do – We invite you to do your job and protect the elderly and the disabled.  (Americans With Disabilities Act title 2). 

And now a feel good story–http://cyberseniorsdocumentary.com/

I hope someday this blog will turn into an endless string of these.

This week I saw one story in Oregon where a man planned on painting a senior’s home that had become decrepit, put the plan on his Facebook and thousands turned to support him, help paint an and pay for supplies!

Today, Kris Hood (thanks Kris) had on her Facebook the following story and a must watch video:


These are seniors learning FaceBook to communicate with their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.  How wonderful is that?

Take a couple of minutes and look at this amazing video trailer of teens teaching seniors who have never used a computer how to write and read email and access Facebook and Youtube where a world of information awaits them.

All good news, all feel good.

We need to stop asking “what’s in it for me” but rather “how can I save the world, one day at a time?”


Finally, in the mainstream media, one ward gets out and speaks out about an abusive g-ship

While the likes of Jerome Larkin and Sharon Opryszek are running around and saying the Sykes case was not a lie and a scam, it was, one brave woman in Florida was able to escape and this got in the mainstream media for a change–abc


Mary Sykes is now dead.  All her money went to attorneys or over priced nursing home bills when she wrote in her POA for health care specifically she did not want to live in a nursing home, she wanted to stay at home.  The Connors-Stuart-MacCarthy team ignored all that, forced her to live in a nursing home and took away all her rights to be and live with her daughter Gloria.

Eventually she was narcotized to death.

The ARDC and Larkin say I was lying, the flying monkeys in probate say I was lying, but the world knows better now.

I am still suspended, but the truth is now out.

The ARDC has turned black into white and white into black–like a house painter.

For Mary G Sykes, the 09 P 4585 proceedings were a death trap in a place she did not want to live, with nearly a million dollars in valuable coins stolen, all discovery quashed, and then she was forced to live in a nursing home–a place she specifically said she did not want to be in.  All the money ran out, and she was narcotized to death.

Mary is now in a far better place, but her poster child like story lives on on this blog, and the ARDC, Jerome Larkin and Sharon Opryszek have not reversed their positions in light of the truth.

Larkin is getting older, and like his brother will be in need of a guardian.  Perhaps the time is now when black is white and white is black for him, protecting all his cronies.

The only one thing the lawyers of Illinois are asking him, and the public also, is to do his job and get rid of all these flying monkeys.  Stop harassing and persecuting those attorneys like myself that work primarily for free for truth and justice and to preserve and protect the US and Illinois constitutions.

Right now, the lawyers he protected in Sykes–the Farenga, Stern, Schmeidel and Waller team have not been investigated and they prey on more elderly and disabled.

The nearly $200,000 legal bill for the Sykes case is a disgrace.  Farenta, Stern, Schmeidel and Fischel and Kahn should be ashamed.  They are a disgrace.  The $87,000 spent on a tied in nursing home (and I would like to see the kickbacks that were paid for this given the fact that Sunrise Park Ridge is advertising a $2,000 kickback for every senior), was specifically prohibited by Mary.  Moving her to Naperville, when she allegedly suffered from dementia was also a disgrace.  As pointed out in a recent article on dementia, why are we isolating seniors and moving them to nursing homes without their permission when in fact, as shown by the monkey with the wire mother experiments of the 50’s (you can youtube these, they’re disgusting animal experiments), seniors and disableds need their families more than ever, to be in their own homes and with the people they have known and loved for years.  If children do not flourish, and in fact go crazy with a wire monkey mother, why do toss our seniors to the “wire monkey caregivers”?

This afternoon I plan on publishing the final accounting in Sykes.  It is a disgrace and nadir of the legal profession.  If anyone doubts her POA specifically prohibits what happened, I will publish that too.

I want subpoenas served in the Sykes case on all sources of income from the GAL’s, I want to see their tax returns for 5 years, I want to see who is paying off any mortgages and loans they have as well as any interests in nursing homes, or beds in nursing homes, etc.



From Candice Schwager in Texas — more blood on the hands of probate appointed attorneys–Ruby


Buyer’s Remorse: When a “deal” for Mom’s freedom goes bad


Just when I think I cannot get any more disgusted with these reprobate lawyers, they hit a new vomit, want to punch someone in the face decibel. Sarah Pacheco is about the worst of the reprobate and cannot even see it. There is any icy cold feeling of PURE ARROGANCE in the room when she enters. She is the most despicable of them all, so be glad Terry. But the two of you could really do some damage! Russ Jones is right up there. And this is my opinion, you den of thieves. I hope you like it HOT!

Today in Court, I was shocked at the freudian slip of the century out of the mouth of a true sow: Sarah. Unbelievably, after  getting sanctioned $15,000 for screaming too loud to save Ruby Peterson’s life as Silverado Senior Living, Sarah Pacheco, Josh Davis, Russ Jones, and Jill Young were holding Ruby and drugging her to death, Sarah and Ruby’s good for nothing lawyers accuses me of bad behavior. All I did was represent my client, Ruby, but no one would allow me to be her lawyer.

Ruby said “hire two lawyers” and her sons hired me. If you are presumed competent, end of story, right? Wrong. Judge Wright appointed two morons: Jill Young (to represent Ruby’s best interests, which apparently was to be drugged to death and kept from her family) and Russ Jones was appointed to be her lawyer (duty to represent HER WISHES, which was to leave Silverado). But, Jones fought Ruby and let her die there. So both were useless and actually want to get paid!

I did not attend mediation or sign the oppressive agreement which my clients signed to save their mother’s life. I’m sure I would likewise have signed anything because Ruby was dying before our eyes and it was the only way we could save her life. In the duress/extortion, a few i’s and t’s were missed and the thugs took full advantage of it, but they fell in their own traps they set for others. Isn’t that what God’s word says?

After Ruby died at Silverado because they would not “LET RUBY GO!” Sarah actually thought she could hold my clients to extortion and accused us of backing out by not giving her the equivalent of more extortion. We were then sued for breach of contract, which is appalling. Seeking to hold us to this illegal contract, she told the judge it did not matter if we were having “BUYER’S REMORSE!” SAY WHAT!! Are you kidding me? I SCREAMED!

So that’s what the mind of a psychopath is like: it’s blind. I was accused of filing frivolous claims and bad behavior for telling you on blogs. Hard to believe these depraved, heartless lawyers would accuse me of bad behavior. Her lawyer buried himself by telling everyone on the record that he had been throwing innocent people to the wolves for 30 years right before he had a freudian slip too, stating that this was all in Ruby’s best interests! WT? Ruby is dead. We objected to that mischaracterization. This guy is so reprobate it’s obscene and I cannot write the disgust I feel. Watching someone die does that to you.

This is what happens in a Code that rewards the gestapo for robbing and killing the elderly, who are mere property in their eyes–worthless. Funny how we pay so much if they are worthless. My clients gave it all just to save their mother and Pacheco didn’t honor the “settlement agreement” that she now seeks to enforce. Go for it.

If I understand what you are saying, you feel that my suggesting Honesty, Honor and fidelity as a solution to the problem of guardianship for the indolent, obnoxious, incompetent and uncontrollable elder or disabled person who now needs social services is naive.    Indeed, in a vacuum it does seem to be Pollyannaish.   But, it is not.    It is not because we do have good people out there and the Jerome Larkin et al conspirators are a minority – but growing.
This is the reason we need the media, the legal profession, and citizens in general to defy the conspirators (including but not limited to Larkin, and his group) and clean up the mess now before it become metastatic.   Larkin and his 18 USCA 371 co-conspirators have unilaterally revoked the Constitution of both the US and the State of Illinois for not only lawyers, but all members of the class of people who are called elderly or disabled.
Last night after I talked with Bev Cooper on her program it occurred to me that Larkin and his co-conspirators have made a massive intrusion on our liberty that is even greater than we observed.   They have set up an alternate justice system so as to better assault the Bill of Rights.    Let me explain.   The members of the legal profession are the last rallying point for defense of the constitution.   Right now as an example fair minded people have looked at Hillary Clinton’s foray in the cyber world of e-mails and are thinking – if that had been me, the jail house is in my future; however, lawyers are out there making certain that she is not persecuted because she is Hillary Clinton, or that she does not get a pass because she is Hillary Clinton.    (Ditto for Chancellor Wise of the University of Illinois).
Defending the constitutional rights of citizens is the sacred duty of every single member of the legal profession.   The obligation is a birth right and one of the obligations that if you shirk you lose your self respect.   (This is the reason that I lobby daily for a HONEST investigation of the Mary Sykes and similar elder cleansing cases  – my personal self respect requires it).
Larkin first based his rationalization that he had a right to censor the call for an Honest investigation on the Sawyer case.    Had he and his co-conspirators read the case they would have found that the last paragraph negated their argument.   After I quoted the last paragraph as an argument against Larkin’s position he in his usually intellectual dishonest way dropped citing the case.   Prevarication and subterfuge were substituted for honest legal argument.
The most recent example was found in the JoAnne Denison documents wherein the IARDC tortured the Alvarez case and distorted its reasoning to suggest that an argument that the Supreme Court of the United States rejected was the basis of the decision.  (Alvarez held that even false statements are protected by the First Amendment –  Alvarez claimed to be a medal of honor winner – he was not)
The disciplinary proceedings against both JoAnne and myself were based upon our calling the Justice Department for an HONEST investigation.   (see Cynthia Farenga letter – Ms Farenga read the Probate Sharks blog and found a call for an Honest investigation of the elder cleansing cases.   She notified Ms Black – a stooge of Mr. Larkin – and shortly afterwards disciplinary proceedings followed against first me and then JoAnne)
Why are the miscreants so upset by an Honest investigation.   An honest investigation would cause the prosecution of the dishonest judges involved as well as the dishonest guardians, guardians ad litem, and other judicial officials.    An Honest investigation would lead back to political figures (including nursing home operators) who are reaping in billions of dollars in loot!     An Honest investigation would result in capital gains on property stolen from wards becoming ordinary income, and worse yet an Honest investigation would end the very lucrative War on the Elderly and disabled.    The the Conspirators assaulted the First Amendment.
If you recall my hearing.  The IARDC attorney held a copy of my letter to the Attorney General of the United States in his hand and asked me if I was repentant for writing it!
The legislature and the Congress worked long and hard to address the plight of the elderly and the disabled.  Previously the Courts developed the doctrine of parens patrie.  All of the above was designed to address the problem of even the most incorrigible senior et al.    In fact they worked.    Or at least they worked into our miscreant conspirators discovered the amount of money that was available by elder cleansing.
My solution is not to throw the baby out with the bath water, but to get rid of the scum of the legal profession starting with the administrator of the IARDC.   I suggest that we send a message – TAX THE BASTARDS!   let them pay all the interest, penalties and taxes due.
Our state needs the money – the money Larkin himself owes would make a great contribution to the pension crisis and send a message.   There is going to be claimed an $800,000 capital gain on Mary’s house.    That should be a One million dollar ordinary income report!    The other 2 million dollars stolen is also subject to income tax.    
Why is Larkin and his miscreant co-conspirators being given a pass?
The short answer is found in the word “corruption”   If we just enforce our laws there is a place of accommodation for the elderly and the disabled. 

From the Probate Blog–the fight to save Casey Ksem


Kerri Kasem, the daughter of the late American Top 40 DJ, Casey Kasem, has been on a mission to make sure what happened to her and her siblings does not happen to others. When her father’s health deteri  orated from Parkinson’s disease, it sparked an ugly court battle between his children and his wife, Jean Kasem, which did not end until he died.  By then, Casey Kasem was suffering from serious bed sores, a urinary tract infection, and sepsis.   Casey-and-Kerri-Kasem-300x277

Kerri Kasem feels that her father’s death could have been prevented if she and her siblings had been able to see him and monitor his care better, but there were not sufficient protections in the law to help.

Like many other adult children in her shoes, Kerri Kasem went to court to be able to see her father and make sure he was protected.  She faced a very difficult time doing so in California.  First, she and other friends and family members of Casey Kasem staged protests outside his house, begging for the right to visit.  Next, Kerri and her siblings filed for conservatorship (which is what guardianship proceedings are called in California), eventually winning the right to visit and have contact with their father, after initially being denied those rights.

Finally, Kerri’s lawyer convinced a California judge to remove Jean Kasem — Casey Kasem’s wife — as his decision-maker, and name Kerri in her place.  Once Kerri was appointed as the conservator, she rushed to try to protect her father.   But, by then, it was too late.  Casey had been moved around to various states, his health deteriorated, and he died shortly thereafter.

Kerri and her relatives pushed for elder abuse charges to be filed against Casey’s widow, Jean Kasem, contending that removing him from a nursing home against medical advice, and moving him around the country, caused or contributed to his death. After Casey died, Jean then had Casey’s body moved to Canada and finally to Norway, where he was eventually buried – without an autopsy having been performed.

Recently, the L.A. District Attorney’s office announced it would not prosecute the case due to lack of evidence of criminal neglect or abuse.

More on Fraud on the Court and reporting crimes against disableds and seniors

They are not immune from acts outside of the color of law like felony criminal or misdemeanor acts.  This is why I suggest before filing fraud on court or in conjunction go to the local PD department first and file a criminal complaint as Barbara has done against Genden.  Get a FORMAL COMPLAINT NUMBER, make sure they intake properly and DO NOT let them push you to the bar or JQC who have no jurisdiction over criminal matters.  Your criminal complaint should have:

  1. Code sections you are complaining about from Statutes, ie Obstruction, Aiding & Abetting, Fraud, etc.
  2. Brief description of each crime (usually take code and rewrite to fit to crime against you) and no more than two paragraphs.
  3. One to two of best evidence, not all, set traps if you can as you will next be dealing with PD trying to evade investigating judges and attorneys
  4. Name and address of each accused party, do not title them unless forced to, so don’t say Judge Genden or attorney Lustig, just names.
  5. Tape entire conversation
  6. If they refuse intake, move up ladder to supervisors and take notes of what they are saying
  7. The process should take NO MORE than 20 minutes
  8. DO NOT SELL YOUR WHOLE STORY AT THIS TIME, BREVITY IS THE KEY, you can add to it later and add evidence.  Telling your whole story here will get them room to wiggle out “oh that’s a civil matter” is common evasion, just say the civil allegations are in the civil courts and these are criminal statutes violations that the Civil Court CANNOT touch and demand docketing and intake.
  10. Same if you are going to fed with criminal acts.
  11. Once that is complete now Fraud on the Court is a part of criminal Fraud too.

Barbara should do another petition to have Michael Genden’s Criminal Complaint investigated according to Florida and US statutes and force PD to investigate now that she is getting run around and claims that Judges are not investigateable and “above the law” but she has done great job of documenting this and this too is a crime.

Comment: I would like to add in, for Fraud on the Court, also go to your local FBI and states attorneys and demand to file a grievance against the court and attorneys involved.  Get a case number and the email for your local FBI office’s court fraud unit AND civil and human rights unit.  Also go to the joint task force on Medicare fraud and file a complaint and get their local fraud unit.  Forcing a person to live in a nursing home when they can live at home with a caretaker there IS medicare fraud.  Killing a senior when the money is gone by narcotizing it is also medicare fraud.  Putting a senior in hospice to die without a diagnosis of an immediately terminal illness so they can be narcotized to death is also medicare fraud.

If the victim is dead, insist that the cororner perform an autopsy and a tox screen for letal levels of opiates and check for dehydration and malnurtrition or evidence the senior was starved to death.  No “guardian” or other relative can narcotize a senior to death or withhold food and water without a court order, and I have never seen anyone either ask for such a court order or any court order be granted to narcotize a ward, or withhold food and water till death.  I have heard of relatives and guardians saying it’s okay to do this, but it’s not–it’s wrongful death.

Subject: RE: Florida State House and Senate: Impeach Michael Genden a probate judge who is using the courthouse to run a racketeering enterprise


It is my belief that we must focus in on the “immunity” doctrine as a “Fraud upon the Court” and is “VOID”.

The GREATEST FRAUD UPON OUR SOCIETY — the “Judicial Immunity Doctrine”

by Bill • August 11, 2015 • 0 Comments






Today we cannot sue certain individuals for the harm they inflict upon their victims because they have one of several types of immunity from suit — “propsecutorial immunity” for prosecutors who fabricate evidence and engage in perjury; immunity for officials engaged in “judicial-type” functions, such as administrative hearing officers; and “immunity” when judges give out immunity to such others as board members and other governing officials.

These “immunities” have their root source in the “judicial immunity” doctrine that was given life by the U.S. Supreme Court in its decision in Stump v. Sparkman 435 U.S. 349 (1978). And once “judges” gave themselves “immunity” they were on the hook to start giving out immunities to others or be exposed. WHY should “others” get immunity if they are not “judges”, you ask? Because the Supreme Court’s ruling is a fraud and those who engage in the act of defrauding need to be protected by others or their fraud will sooner or later be disclosed.

The first group of individuals to be bribed with immunity are prosecutors. And for good reason – although not a legal reason. Prosecutors are the only “ENFORCEMENT” segment of government that can “prosecute” criminals. Clearly if the Supreme Court Judges have committed a criminal act in granting immunity to themselves they risk having a brave Prosecutor sue the judges who established this ‘fraud’ of judicial immunity and send them to jail or at least put an end to the fraud. For this reason the Supreme Court Judges needed to expand their “immunity” to the “prosecutors”. Otherwise “prosecutors” may prosecute the judges for their criminal act in establishing immunity.

What makes the “judicial immunity doctrine” unlawful? The doctrine violates 28 USC 455, which PROHIBITS a judge or “JUSTICE” from sitting in a case in which he or she has an interest, or his or her impartiality may be questioned. Let’s ask this as a questions…. How does a “judicial immunity doctrine” flow from a civil lawsuit in which a “judge” is a defendant? Is it not true that “judges have a direct interest” in the “powers of judges”? If the answer is YES, then all “JUDGES AND JUSTICES” cannot decided such a case because they are “DISQUALIFIED” under 28 USC 455 for the very fact their “IMPARTIALITY” can be questioned due to their “INTEREST” in their own power. Clearly the Supreme Court Judges used the case Stump v Sparkman to further their own powers and immunites — an act that violates 28 USC 455

Our Society has suffered so much because corrupt judges and lawyers get away with unlawful conduct because of the “IMMUNITY DOCTRINE” — the FRAUD UPON SOCIETY.

Once again it seems true that “At the core of our rotten government we find lawyers”!

Excellent Article–Fraud on the Court!

Judicial Fraud Upon the Court


Fraud upon the Court

Fraud Upon the Court is where the Judge (who is NOT the “Court”) does NOT support or uphold the Judicial Machinery of the Court. The Court is an unbiased, but methodical “creature” which is governed by the Rule of Law… that is, the Rules of Civil Procedure, the Rules of Criminal Procedure and the Rules of Evidence, all which is overseen by Constitutional law. The Court can ONLY be effective, fair and “just” if it is allowed to function as the laws proscribe. The sad fact is that in MOST Courts across the country, from Federal Courts down to local District courts, have judges who are violating their oath of office and are NOT properly following these rules, (as most attorney’s do NOT as well, and are usually grossly ignorant of the rules and both judges and attorneys are playing a revised legal game with their own created rules) and THIS is a Fraud upon the Court, immediately removing jurisdiction from that Court, and vitiates (makes ineffective – invalidates) every decision from that point on. Any judge who does such a thing is under mandatory, non-discretionary duty to recuse himself or herself from the case, and this rarely happens unless someone can force them to do so with the evidence of violations of procedure and threat of losing half their pensions for life which is what can take place. In any case, it is illegal, and EVERY case which has had fraud involved can be re-opened AT ANY TIME, because there is no statutes of limitations on fraud. This is a trillion dollar “justice industry” just waiting to be tapped

“Fraud On The Court By An Officer Of The Court”

And “Disqualification Of Judges, State and Federal”

1. Who is an “officer of the court”?

2. What is “fraud on the court”?

3. What effect does an act of “fraud upon the court” have upon the court proceeding?

4. What causes the “Disqualification of Judges?”

1. Who is an “officer of the court?”

A judge is an officer of the court, as well as are all attorneys. A state judge is a state judicial officer, paid by the State to act impartially and lawfully. A federal judge is a federal judicial officer, paid by the federal government to act impartially and lawfully. State and federal attorneys fall into the same general category and must meet the same requirements.

 A judge is not the court.

People v. Zajic, 88 Ill.App.3d 477, 410 N.E.2d 626 (1980).

2. What is “fraud on the court”?

Whenever any officer of the court commits fraud during a proceeding in the court, he/she is   file:///C|/Users/Jeff/Internet/The-Matrix/fraud-upon-the-court.html (1 of 4) [7/24/2008 1:17:07 PM] Fraud upon the court engaged in “fraud upon the court”. In Bulloch v. United States, 763 F.2d 1115, 1121 (10th Cir. 1985), the court stated “Fraud upon the court is fraud which is directed to the judicial machinery it elf and is not fraud between the parties or fraudulent documents, false statements or perjury. … It is where the court or a member is corrupted or influenced or influence is attempted or where the judge has not performed his judicial function — thus where the impartial functions of the court have been directly corrupted.”

“Fraud upon the court” has been defined by the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals to “embrace that species of fraud which does, or attempts to, defile the court itself, or is a fraud perpetrated by officers of the court so that the judicial machinery can not perform in the usual manner its impartial task of adjudging cases that are presented for adjudication.” Kenner v. C.I.R., 387 F.3d 689 (1968); 7 Moore’s Federal Practice, 2d ed., p. 512, ¶ 60.23. The 7th Circuit further stated “a decision produced by fraud upon the court is not in essence a decision at all, and never becomes final.”

3. What effect does an act of “fraud upon the court” have upon the court proceeding?

“Fraud upon the court” makes void the orders and judgments of that court. It is also clear and well-settled Illinois law that any attempt to commit “fraud upon the court” vitiates the entire proceeding. The People of the State of Illinois v. Fred E. Sterling, 357 Ill. 354; 192 N.E. 229 (1934) (“The maxim that fraud vitiates every transaction into which it enters applies to judgments as well as to contracts and other transactions.”); Allen F. Moore v. Stanley F. Sievers, 336 Ill. 316; 168 N.E. 259 (1929) (“The maxim that fraud vitiates every transaction into which it enters …”); In re Village of Willowbrook, 37 Ill.App.2d 393 (1962) (“It is axiomatic that fraud vitiates everything.”); Dunham v. Dunham, 57 Ill.App. 475 (1894), affirmed 162 Ill. 589 (1896); Skelly Oil Co. v. Universal Oil Products Co., 338 Ill.App. 79, 86 N.E.2d 875, 883-4 (1949); Thomas Stasel v. The American Home Security Corporation, 362 Ill. 350; 199 N.E. 798 (1935).

Under Illinois and Federal law, when any officer of the court has committed “fraud upon the court”, the orders and judgment of that court are void, of no legal force or effect.

4. What causes the “Disqualification of Judges?”

Federal law requires the automatic disqualification of a Federal judge under certain circumstances. In 1994, the U.S. Supreme Court held that “Disqualification is required if an objective observer would entertain reasonable questions about the judge’s impartiality. If a judge’s attitude or state of mind leads a detached observer to conclude that a fair and impartial hearing is unlikely, the judge must be disqualified.” [Emphasis added]. Liteky v. U.S., 114 S.Ct. 1147, 1162 (1994).

Courts have repeatedly held that positive proof of the partiality of a judge is not a requirement, only the appearance of partiality. Liljeberg v. Health Services Acquisition Corp., 486 U.S. 847, 108 S.Ct. 2194 (1988) (what matters is not the reality of bias or prejudice but its appearance); United States v. Balistrieri, 779 F.2d 1191 (7th Cir. 1985) (Section 455(a) “is directed against the appearance of partiality, whether or not the judge is actually biased.”)

(“Section 455(a) of the Judicial Code, 28 U.S.C. §455(a), is not intended to protect litigants from actual bias in their judge but rather to promote public confidence in the impartiality of the judicial file:///C|/Users/Jeff/Internet/The-Matrix/fraud-upon-the-court.html (2 of 4) [7/24/2008 1:17:07 PM] Fraud upon the court process.”).

That Court also stated that Section 455(a) “requires a judge to recuse himself in any proceeding in which her impartiality might reasonably be questioned.” Taylor v. O’Grady, 888 F.2d 1189 (7th Cir. 1989). In Pfizer Inc. v. Lord, 456 F.2d 532 (8th Cir. 1972), the Court stated that “It is important that the litigant not only actually receive justice, but that he believes that he has received justice.”

The Supreme Court has ruled and has reaffirmed the principle that “justice must satisfy the appearance of justice”, Levine v. United States, 362 U.S. 610, 80 S.Ct. 1038 (1960), citing Offutt v. United States, 348 U.S. 11, 14, 75 S.Ct. 11, 13 (1954). A judge receiving a bribe from an interested party over which he is presiding, does not give the appearance of justice.

“Recusal under Section 455 is self-executing; a party need not file affidavits in support of recusal and the judge is obligated to recuse herself sua sponte under the stated circumstances.  ” Taylor v. O’Grady, 888 F.2d 1189 (7th Cir. 1989).

Further, the judge has a legal duty to disqualify himself even if there is no motion asking for his disqualification. The Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals further stated that “We think that this language [455(a)] imposes a duty on the judge to act sua sponte, even if no motion or affidavit is filed.” Balistrieri, at 1202. Judges do not have discretion not to disqualify themselves. By law, they are bound to follow the law. Should a judge not disqualify himself as required by law, then the judge has given another example of his “appearance of partiality” which, possibly, further disqualifies the judge. Should another judge not accept the disqualification of the judge, then the second judge has evidenced an “appearance of partiality” and has possibly disqualified himself/herself. None of the orders issued by any judge who has been disqualified by law would appear to be valid. It would appear that they are void as a matter of law, and are of no legal force or effect.

Should a judge not disqualify himself, then the judge is violation of the Due Process Clause of the U.S. Constitution. United States v. Sciuto, 521 F.2d 842, 845 (7th Cir. 1996) (“The right to a tribunal free from bias or prejudice is based, not on section 144, but on the Due Process Clause.”).

Should a judge issue any order after he has been disqualified by law, and if the party has

been denied of any of his / her property, then the judge may have been engaged in the Federal Crime of “interference with interstate commerce”. The judge has acted in the judge’s personal capacity and not in the judge’s judicial capacity. It has been said that this judge, acting in this manner, has no more lawful authority than someone’s next-door neighbor (provided that he is not a judge). However some judges may not follow the law. If you were a non-represented litigant, and should the court not follow the law as to nonrepresented litigants, then the judge has expressed an “appearance of partiality” and, under the law, it would seem that he/she has disqualified him/herself.

However, since not all judges keep up to date in the law, and since not all judges follow the law, it is possible that a judge may not know the ruling of the U.S. Supreme Court and the other courts on this subject. Notice that it states “disqualification is required” and that a judge “must be disqualified” under certain circumstances.

The Supreme Court has also held that if a judge wars against the Constitution, or if he acts without jurisdiction, he has engaged in treason to the Constitution. If a judge acts after he has been automatically disqualified by law, then he is acting without jurisdiction, and that suggest that he is then engaging in criminal acts of treason, and may be engaged in extortion and the interference with interstate commerce.

Courts have repeatedly ruled that judges have no immunity for their criminal acts. Since file:///C|/Users/Jeff/Internet/The-Matrix/fraud-upon-the-court.html (3 of 4) [7/24/2008 1:17:07 PM] Fraud upon the court –both treason and the interference with interstate commerce are criminal acts, no judge has immunity to engage in such acts.

From ALJ Kessell–An award of Thousands of Dollars in fines for isolating a senior

Obviously someone is listening and the flying monkeys better take notice to either leave or dip deeper in those pockets for bribes (and maybe it isn’t worth is any longer?) because the ALJ’s in Medicare complaints are cracking down.

April 10, 2015 case of sykesblog-081015-NMSHealthcarev.CMS-nursinghomerights

the ALJ Kessel made it clear that he would not tolerate violations of Medicare regulations and he fined the facility thousands of dollars for isolating an elderly woman from one daughter based upon a POA from another daughter that the facility enforced.

 However, she eventually cooperated and returned. Id.
The resident was moved to the locked unit of Petitioner’s facility upon her return on January 22, 2014. From that date and thereafter, the resident was confined behind a locked door that denied her egress from the wing on which she was confined and from the facility itself. Petitioner not only confined Resident # 4, it restricted her access to members of her immediate family and to other individuals, including an attorney who sought to provide her with legal counsel. ……………. In November and December of 2013 members of Petitioner’s staff confronted an attorney with whom Resident # 4 was consulting and ordered him to leave Petitioner’s premises. CMS Ex. 67 at 2–3, 38–39. After being confined Resident # 4 complained that she wanted to speak with an attorney but that Petitioner would not allow her to. Id. at 9. Beginning in at least 2012 Petitioner’s staff restricted one of the resident’s daughters from visiting the resident. CMS Ex. 9 at 17, 23, 115.
When interviewed, Resident # 4 expressed a desire to leave the facility and complained about the restrictions on her freedom of movement. CMS Ex. 67 at 40. The resident’s desire to leave was known to Petitioner’s staff. Id. at 13.
The only reference in the resident’s treatment record to the decision to confine her is a social services note dated January 22 that says, laconically: “Resident moved to room 418B.” CMS Ex. 9 at 132. The clinical record suggests no basis for confining Resident # 4 against her will or for restricting her access to family members and an attorney. Nothing whatsoever in the record suggests a change in the resident’s medical or psychiatric condition prior to or on January 22, 2014 that would support confining her. To the contrary, the record of the resident’s mental status shows her to be calm and cooperative and not to be deteriorating in the nearly three years prior to her being confined. CMS. Ex. 9 at 52–110. There is no physician’s report supporting confining the resident or restricting her access to visitors. There is no comprehensive assessment suggesting a need to change her status. Nor is there anything in the resident’s care plan that either records the change in status or addresses how it is to be managed.
Similarly, there is no explanation in the resident’s treatment records as to why the particular restrictions employed by the facility were clinically necessary. Why, for example, were certain individuals excluded from the facility? Petitioner has no assessments or explanations of the medical or clinical reasons for this decision.
There is, however, a reason for Petitioner’s actions and it stands without rebuttal. Petitioner confined Resident # 4 and restricted her access to visitors at least in part because Petitioner’s daughter, (“JF”), who held a power of attorney (POA), wanted her mother to be confined and the restrictions to be imposed. Petitioner took the actions it took in part because JF requested that it take them. The only reasonable conclusion that I can draw from the undisputed facts of this case is that Petitioner acted on JF’s desire that her mother be confined without making any determination as to whether confinement and visitor restrictions were clinically justified or whether seclusion and restrictions were the least restrictive and most reasonable means of protecting Resident # 4.

Let’s give a hand to Judge Kessell for being honest about what happens in nursing homes on a day to day basis and how the probate courts across the nation support the isolation and human rights violations of nursing homes on a day to day basis, merely because many nursing homes allow both the judges and the probate attorneys to “invest” in the homes–and not always by means of public stock certificates, and there are kickbacks paid (according to Brightstar owner) of $2,000 to $3,000 per month for any relative who participates in keeping a resident there and isolated against his or her will.

Jerome Larkin knows this and does nothing.  He has $1.2 million in unexplained mortgage payoffs on his public records.  He has been challenged to release bank records showing who paid his mortgages off.  He does nothing.  Same for my prosecutor, Sharon Opryszek.  Not only was she caught witness tampering in the Hogan case and the witness still wants to testify against her (Justine McGinty), but she also has an unexplained $250k mortgage payoff.

None of this is every investigated by the state authorities and Diane Saltoun says she won’t investigate state corruption, but as the Inspector General, she is bound to investigate bribes of state employees and kickbacks.

Read the case, the language is a bright shining star in a sea of depravity at the nursing homes and in our 18th floor probate court and probate courts across the nations.

From Dr. Cordero–a format for justice–and my response

I think what you wrote is good, but it would help to be more specific for pro se’ers.  For example, most people do not know that you can get a judge recused for the following behavior:

Rude behavior, scoffing at, making noises, making faces while you are talking or saying you cannot speak at all without an attorney and then letting the other side go on and on and on and not letting you respond.

The standard in most jurisdictions for recusal of a judge is that you have a reasonable fear that you will not get a fair trial or hearing and the judge will be biased against you.

Obviously, issuing contempt and Body Attachment orders in a civil case gets you there–those are unconstitutional. Gag orders  or “you must not talk about X” are also unconstitutional and will get you there (motion to recuse).

A recusal is not an admission of wrong doing by a court or the judge–it just gets you another judge that you might find you have to recuse.

Barbara Stone is on a streak of recusals because she wants justice in probate in Miami Dade county.  None of the judges there seem to understand that  probate is not a grab the cash and let the elder suffer and be isolated and drugged and on a feeding tube she does not want.

Subject: Template for presenting case information on judicial wrongdoing

Dear Mr. Grundstein and Advocates of Honest Judiciaries,

Thank you for your prompt reply.

I would most certainly like to have a description of the federal court’s behavior in your case against the WA state bar.

  1. Template to present case information on judicial wrongdoing
  1. Since you are a lawyer, you can do what pro ses are most unlike able to do, namely, distinguish between, on the one hand, wishful thinking expectations that when not realized are unjustifiably characterized as wrongdoing by the judge, and, on the other hand, either indisputable violations of the law and disregard of material facts or conduct that is so suspicious, for instance, because it entails highly improbable coincidences, as to raise probable cause to believe that the conduct was intentional in disregard of a legal or ethical duty of the court.
  1. The above hints at a format for your description that I respectfully suggest to you: a table with substantive columns together with referential ones:
  1. description of the case;
  1. wrong, suspicious, improper, unethical, and wrongful behaviors;
  1. quotation of the text and citation of the legal or ethical provisions that were violated. An unethical behavior can involve, for example, the Code of Conduct for U.S. Judges(* >jur:68fn123a);
  1. reference to the page of the brief, motion, ruling, decision, or other document introduced in evidence or reliable enough to carry evidentiary value, that supports the claim of wrong or wrongful behavior;
  1. name(s) of the judge(s) involved; the address of the court; and their respective phone numbers (to make it easier for independent and impartial third parties, such as journalists(* >ol:250) or the staff of presidential candidates(ol:292) investigating the case, to contact them and ask for their side of the story);
  1. text of any question presented on appeal.

All (blue text reference) are found in my study of the Federal Judiciary and its judges, the models for their state counterparts, titled:

Exposing Judges’ Unaccountability and Consequent Riskless Wrongdoing:

Pioneering the news and publishing field of judicial unaccountability reporting(* >jur:1)

  1. The attached template for exposing judges’ wrongdoing
  1. The attachment hereto contains a template for presenting the above information in the form of a table. The information must be concise, to the point, and convincing. A table is a device that allows vast amounts of information to be distilled to its essential elements and to facilitate comparison; see:
  1. jur:10, 1, 15, 16
  1. jur:31§a
  1. jur:65fn107c
  1. ol:280 and 282, which are tables proposed as templates.
  1. It is not reasonable to expect people, particularly non-lawyers, unremunerated lawyers, and even journalists, to wade through the scores or hundreds of pages of a single case to figure out on their own whatever it is that supports the unsubstantiated allegation of a party, by definition biased to its side of the story, of wrongdoing on the part of a judge…and repeat the process with each of the other cases in a set of cases presented to establish a pattern of wrongdoing of a judge, never mind of all the judges of a court.
  1. No judge or judiciary promises to be able and willing to conduct a perfect trial, but only one that is fair and impartial. Likewise, not every minute error or mistake amounts to wrongdoing. Listing all of them does not make the claim of wrongdoing more credible; it only makes the presentation boring as a result of the meaninglessness of its elements. Such shotgun presentation betrays the indiscriminate handling by a pro se of alleged instances of judicial wrongdoing, neither able nor willing to assess the merits of each instance.


  1. Connecting excusable mistakes into a pattern of wrongdoing


  1. The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations provisions at 18 U.S.C. §1961(5)(jur:111fn249) defines a ‘‘pattern of racketeering activity’’ as consisting of at least two acts each of which constitutes racketeering activity within ten years. This shows that in order to establish a pattern what matters is not the large number of wrongful behaviors, but rather the wrongful nature of at least two of them.
  1. However, individual behaviors of an excusable nature can become inexcusable when ‘the totality of circumstances’ surrounding them is assessed in a reasonable, common-sensical way, and all the more so when the assessment relies on statistics
  1. Indeed, a wrong behavior may be a clerical mistake, such as an entry in the case docket bearing the wrong date. However, if all or the great majority of such ‘clerical mistakes’ and other similar mistakes by the same clerk or other clerks and people benefit one party and injure the opposing one, though statistically they should be evenly distributed(ol:19§D), then it is reasonable to suspect the totality of them of being intentional. They are not just wrong, but rather wrongful.

It falls to the presenter to articulate all those individually excusable mistakes, two or more of which could conceivably be deemed coincidences, into a set revealing an intentional pattern of wrongdoing.

  1. Template as source of categories of wrongdoing, a periodic publication, and persuasion for others to dare expose judges’ wrongdoing

You, Mr. Grundstein, as a lawyer, have the opportunity to fill out the template and thereby make a concise, to the point, and convincing presentation of your case that serves as example for others, particularly the pro ses. For an example of information of judicial wrongdoing so presented but outside the columns of a table, such as that attached hereto, see ol:19fn2 >ws:76§1.

The information that you and other advocates provide by using that template will make it possible to identify categories of wrongdoing and suspicious behaviors that subsequently other parties, especially pro ses, can consider in assessing the behavior of the judge in their respective case. Such categories can be placed on the Y axis of the table, that is, as headings of rows.

The information gathered through filled out templates(jur:122§2) can eventually lead to the composition and publication of the Annual Report on Judicial Unaccountability in America(jur:126§3).

The filled out template that you and other similarly situated parties compose can be used as a professional device to persuade journalists(ol:250) and presidential candidates(ol:296) to investigate and expose judicial wrongdoing in the context of Election 2016, as proposed at ol:271.

  1. Interception of advocates’ emails: the need to alert them

Since Friday, July 31, I have not received any emails from advocates of honest judiciaries with whom I have been emailing for months or even years. I have not received emails even when their names appeared in the emails that I had sent them during the previous few days.

Are our emails being intercepted to prevent advocates from joining forces to expose wrongdoing judges and advocate judicial reform? There is probable cause to believe that is the case(* >ol:227§1). Such interception violates our First Amendment right “to assemble peacefully to petition the government for a redress of grievances” as well as our freedom of speech and of the press(jur:130fn268).

* http://Judicial-Discipline-Reform.org/OL/DrRCordero-Honest_Jud_Advocates.pdf

The motive for the interceptors lies in their interest in covering up wrongdoing by hindering advocates’ joint effort to:

  1. audit the rulings and decisions of the same judge that several parties have had in their respective case and which they jointly search for commonalities that reveal patterns of the judge’s wrongdoing(infra and at ol:274);
  1. reach out to presidential candidates, who are in desperate need to stand out in an overcrowded field so that one or more of them can strive to become the Champion of the huge(ol:272¶4) untapped voting bloc of all those dissatisfied with the legal and judicial system(ol:271); and
  1. contribute evidence to a test case being prepared for appeal to the highest New York State court grounded on a claim of deprivation of victims of judges’ wrongdoing of their right to due process and equal protection of the law by judges who hold themselves unaccountable and not liable to compensate their victims(ol:296).

If you have sent me an email since July 31, please send it again under the above subject line to the bloc of my email addresses provided below, and keep sending it until you receive a reply from me consistent with my emails. Share your and this email with all other advocates of honest judiciaries and as widely as possible to alert advocates and the rest of the public to the interception of our emails.

I look forward to hearing from you.

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

  1. Anecdotic allegations v. pattern evidence of judges’ wrongdoing


  1. A party to a lawsuit cannot merely allege in court that the judge is biased or is engaged in other wrongdoing and thereby cause a judge to recuse herself or have her disqualified. The party must provide evidence of his allegations; otherwise, the allegation will be dismissed as impressionistic and anecdotic, and the party will be disparaged by being labeled ‘a disgruntled loser’.


  1. The most convincing way of making such allegations is by identifying in one’s case an instance of conduct, an event, statement, position, person, name, address, date, number, quantity, etc., that is the same as, or similar to, another in the same case or in several of them, or better yet, in a statistically representative sample of related cases, e.g., those presided over by the same judge or in the same court or jurisdiction: These are commonalities.


  1. When connected, they form a pattern of wrongdoing(* >ol:154¶3). It is like finding in a judge’s conduct and written or oral statements dots with a common color or shade that when connected reveal a figure: the face of a wrongdoing judge(* >jur:10:Nature of…).

  1. Pattern evidence is the picture in, “A picture is worth a thousand words” of mere allegations of parties, never mind pro ses. That is what auditing a judge means.


  1. So a party can either:


  1. whine about allegations without evidence, which are unconvincing and self-defeating; or


  1. think and proceed strategically(Lsch:14§3;   ol:52§C;   ol:8§E;   jur:xliv¶C) to expose the judge’s disregard of facts and the law, bias, conflict of interests, etc.; obtain relief now; and for the wrong done to the party by the judge as well as by the judiciary that failed to supervise and discipline her obtain perhaps even compensation from both in future.


  1. A party that chooses the latter, strategic course of action can:


  1. gather raw data, e.g., judges’ calendars, rulings, and decisions or even the whole record of cases to glean her statements from transcripts, dockets, party contact information; and


  1. examine them and compare notes with other parties in search of commonalities that reveal patterns of wrongdoing that deny parties due process and equal protection of the law in violation of the state and the U.S. constitutions, the laws thereunder, court rules, etc.;


  1. use such pattern evidence in an appeal to the highest state court and thereafter to the U.S. Supreme Court, where it hardly ever reaches because most pro ses do not know how and cannot afford to appeal, so that a case that does make it there can become a test case; and


  1. additionally produce concrete, verifiable evidence of wrongdoing(jur:5§3) reasonably calculated to attract the attention of journalists(ol:197§1) in search of a scoop(ol:199§H) and so outrage the public(ol:193§D) as to stir it up to force politicians to call for judges to be held accountable and investigated at nationally televised hearings (ol:273¶¶5-7).


  1. Exposing judges in court with convincing evidence does not mean obtaining relief from the presiding judges. Relief can come through its publicity effect on outsiders(ol:271):


  1. The all-too many presidential candidates that have entered the 2016 Campaign are in dire need to be among the limited number of them who will be invited to the candidates’ debates, and survive the early primaries. Whether honestly or opportunistically, they can choose to become the champions of the huge(ol:272¶4) untapped voting bloc of people dissatisfied with the legal system, especially those among them most passionately committed to exposing wrongdoing judges: their victims.


  1. Patterns can be expressed in percentages of all cases of a given type, e.g., how many times a commonality pointing to bias was detected, such as how many times a judge dismissed a case brought by a pro as compared to similar cases brought by a represented party where she denied a motion to dismiss. Patterns can be represented in charts(jur:9); tables(jur:10,11,15,16); and classic graphs of X,Y coordinates(jur:12-14).


  1. There are many forms of visually representing sets of values, e.g., side by side columns to compare percentages; bell curves for normal distributions; pie charts for shares of a whole, time lines that indicate fluctuations over time as well as trends; intersecting circles for shared characteristics, etc. These are statistical concepts that go from the very simple, which parties may be using without knowing it to represent the ups and downs of their income and their home budget, to the more sophisticated.


  1. The above describes how the pursuit of an unconventional, strategic course of action in court by go-getters can provide support for, and lead to, an out-of-court strategy(ol:236) for exposing judges’ wrongdoing and bringing about judicial reform at a politically favorable juncture.



  1. The use of statistics in court was introduced by Then-Attorney Brandeis


  1. Statistics have been used in courts for a very long time since the first time, one which provides an illustrious precedent: Before Louis Brandeis became a justice of the Supreme Court in 1916, he was an effective litigator advocating progressive causes. He won his cases, not only by arguing the law, but also by writing briefs where he presented socio-economic data and treated it with as much rigor as if it were legal evidence.


  1. The best known of such briefs of his was filed in Muller v. Oregon, 208 U.S. 412, 28 S.Ct. 324 (1908). There Then-Attorney Brandeis used social and economic studies to argue successfully to the Supreme Court that it should uphold statutes limiting workdays for women to a maximum of 10 hours. His briefs were so innovative and persuasive that they gave rise to a new type of brief: the Brandeis brief. They contributed to ushering in a more just society and thus, to making history. In time, Brandeis became a justice.


  1. Programs such as Excel and PowerPoint turn massive amounts of numeric data into color graphs that Brandeis could not dream of and that substantially enhance their understanding(cf. dcc:11).



  1. Parties joining forces to audit judges so as to advance their common cause


  1. Each party need not work alone to examine the data concerning the judge in his or her case in search of pattern evidence of wrongdoing. Parties who have appeared before the same judge or have an ongoing case before her can join forces to do so. These similarly situated parties can form a group of strategic thinkers and doers, rather than remain as isolated whiners and losers.


  1. Parties will not be joining forces to search for pattern evidence so as to form a class that brings an action in court against judges. That is a futile exercise, doomed to fail at the hands of the defendant judges’ peers, colleagues, and friends, who will preside over their trials and any appeals, and protect their own and themselves(ol:158).


  1. Rather, it is an exercise in gathering evidence in support of the two-pronged approach(supra ¶4c,d; ol:248) to exposing judges’ wrongdoing.


  1. The parties must join forces to advance a common cause rather than each one work alongside others only to benefit his or her own personal case. They should realize that it is useless for each of them to take on coordinated(jur:88§§a-c) judges in their turf, the courts, where they arbitrarily handle and make rules as they go, and their staff, who must execute their wrongdoing orders lest they be fired without recourse(jur:30§1).


  1. It is foolhardy to take all of them on with the arms of a pro se: ignorance of the law, TV notions of court procedure, lots of self-defeating, disruptive, blinding emotions, and wishful thinking that is no substitute at all for strategic thinking.


  1. How a party can go about locating others wronged by the same judge


  1. A party looks up the list of cases on the calendars of the judge in its case, which are:


  1. posted on the court’s website or the judge’s webpages on that site; or


  1. affixed on the wall outside the judge’s courtroom every motion hearing and trial day and of which a picture can be taken with a smartphone or tablet.


  1. The party extracts from the calendars party names and case docket numbers to find:
  1. briefs


1) on the court’s website to download them;


2) in the court’s research room or law library, where they are in paper form;


3) through computer research in the legal databases of:


  1. a) PACER (Public Access to Courts Electronic Records), https://www.pacer.gov/, accessible through any computer;


  1. b) Westlaw, http://web2.westlaw.com/signon/default.wl?vr=2.0&fn=_top&__lrguid=i1eb21045275b4acf89cde9be245fb745&rs=WLW15.04&bhcp=1, and


  1. c) Lexis, http://www.lexisnexis.com/en-us/legal-solutions/default.page,


which are accessible through computers and WIFI at the court and public and law school libraries or a subscription later on bought by a group of parties.


4) Those briefs have the contact information of similarly situated parties. Most likely they will be persons, not companies. Ordinary cases brought by persons, even if represented, neither hold as much interest for judges nor command as much of their respect for due process as those filed by the likes of Pacific Coast Docks against NY Association of Importers, represented by big law firms and top lawyers ready to appeal and embarrass sloppy and wrongdoing judges(jur:45¶86).


5) Pro ses are trampled. Their cases can be identified by the absence next to their names of an attorney’s name. Person cases and pro ses are easy prey for wrongdoing judges; and


  1. their phone numbers.


1) The phone numbers of parties are not on calendars, but should be on the cover page of their briefs; otherwise, the party names found in the calendars can be used to look up their phone numbers in the phone book or the Internet white pages.


  1. The party uses a well-rehearsed brief message to contact those similarly situated parties, e.g.:
  1. I have a case before Judge Z and found out that you do too. She has disregarded the facts and the law in my case. If you feel that way as to your case, you, I, and others like us can join forces to expose her by detecting common points of her wrongdoing that reveal a pattern of wrongdoing. That is convincing evidence to be used in a test case to go before our highest state court and as an incentive for journalists and politicians to expose her.


  1. You and I can find other parties using the method I used to find you. When there are five of us, we can meet at a party’s home to search for common points. I can share with you an article explaining this search(ol:274) and templates(ol:280,282) for organizing our work.



  1. Meetings of parties are sessions for division of labor and getting work done


  1. Meetings are not social occasions where people who do not want to be alone come together to commiserate. They are not for chatting, so wasteful of time and effort. Sobbing together as they pass the box of Kleenex is not the same as professionally gathering the data, detecting their commonalities, and using them to establish patterns of judges’ wrongdoing.


  1. Meetings are occasions for working. Everybody should come to the meetings with a laptop, a tablet, or a yellow pad and a smartphone. The best meeting place is where there is a large table where people can sit at in business-like fashion. There should also be power strips to plug in all the electronic devices so that nobody need stop working because their device ran out of battery power.


  1. It should be a quiet place. A pool table in the back of a bar on a Saturday night is not conducive to working. The box of Kleenex is for the group members’ profuse sweating, but not because the place is hot and stuffy.


  1. The invitation to the meeting must set forth the preliminary work that each party should have done in preparation for the meeting; and the agenda of the meeting; at the end of it, the agenda will provide the measure of what the group accomplished.


  1. Everybody must bring their documents organized chronologically in a binder or on a pdf, not thrown together in a supermarket plastic bag.


  1. Documents yield the most information when they have been scanned into a searchable pdf. Then when a group member proposes key terms to search for a possible point of commonality, such as a name of a lawyer or a clerk or a date, all group members can open the pdf’s binocular icon and enter those key terms in the search box to look for that term in all their documents.


  1. Rummaging a hundred or hundreds of pages manually and visually every time a term must be searched is time-consuming, exhaustive, and unreliable.


  1. Moreover, pdf’s can be annotated with electronic sticky notes that do not deface the document and can be searched with the search function. Ideas can be committed to writing, not to memory.


  1. The parties should bring their documents preceded by a table listing each one’s title, sender, addressee(s), date, and page number, and bearing a note on whatever makes that document relevant; cf. the summarizing title of this article(ol:274).


  1. A well-prepared table of documents serves as a summary of a party’s case. It can be shared with the group by email in advance so that as the members read it, they can spot a possible point of commonality to search.


  1. See the table of documents template(* >ol:280); see also the table of documents of the main file(* >ToC:i) and its bookmarks.

* http://Judicial-Discipline-Reform.org/OL/DrRCordero-Honest_Jud_Advocates.pdf >280


  1. Meetings are also opportunities for the parties to realize that they eventually will have to contribute financially to the effort to find commonality points; establish patterns; bring them to the attention of journalists(* >ol:250) and politicians; appeal to the highest state court and the U.S. Supreme Court; publicize their effort through intense mass-emailing and social media use.


  1. The parties who agree to join forces must proceed methodically. They can elect a meeting leader. The latter can organize group work by applying the fundamental principle of any organization, i.e., division of labor in accordance with each person’s skills and preferences and the organization’s needs and objectives.


  1. Some members may be more adept at searching for parties’ contact information; if so, they may pass on that information to those members who are more articulate and can communicating with others on the phone or in person.


  1. Every effort should be made to contact and attract the attorneys of represented parties. Their knowledge of the law is priceless.



  1. Tasks of the group of searchers of judicial wrongdoing pattern evidence


  1. The initial task of the group is to:


  1. identify each instance of apparently disregarded or falsely alleged facts, and the law, court rules or any ethical or professional[fn.123a] provision deemed to have been violated by the judge, clerks, and other insiders[fn.169]; and apparently relevant characteristics of people, which may later on prove to be correlated, e.g., dismissals and form denials are signed on Fridays when the judge leaves early to play golf at his country club with some lawyers;


  1. tabulate the data in a table:


1) with a top horizontal row of labels for classifying facts and provisions:


  1. a) facts, e.g., deadline alleged missed, affidavit missing; date manipulated by clerk; ex parte meeting with opposing counsel; unadvertised auction of assets; prevented or cut short examination or cross-examination of witnesses; and


  1. b) provisions and their citations: v. judge appointing spouse, Rules of the NY Chief Judge, 22 NYCRR Part 36.2(c)(3); and


2) in the vertical column on the left are listed the characteristics of people, e.g.:




  1. a) pro se


  1. b) represented by counsel


(1) a solo practitioner


(2) law firm with between 2-10, 11-50, 51+ lawyers


  1. c) parties income range


  1. d) parties educational level

  1. From groping for sense in a fog of data to becoming Champions of Justice


  1. Auditing a judge’s decision is an investigative exercise. At the beginning, the group will not know what is a commonality point or, if so, whether it has any evidentiary value. Patterns are not even suspected until much later, when sense starts to emerge from the points’ relatedness.


  1. To perceive meaningful commonalities, the group must apply the two key elements of social intelligence to understand the dynamics between parties, judges, clerks, lawyers, etc.: what makes people tic –power, money, love, hate, safety, fear, job insecurity, etc.– and what makes the world turn around –interpersonal relations, clan mentality, tradition, values, ideals, the economy, politics–.


  1. This will allow identifying harmonious and conflicting interests between parties so as to recognize who is an ally and who is a foe(* >Lsch:14§2; ol:52§C; dcc:8¶11).


  1. The effort to find commonalities in cases, parties, and judges can reveal a pattern of bias, conflict of interests, dysfunctionality in the court, turf fighting, schemes among connected people, prejudice, etc.


  1. The tabulation is a data organizing exercise. In its initial stage, the group will not know what is statistically relevant: what happens so frequently or infrequently for that judge, other judges, or people generally that it can only have happened intentionally. So it is a commonality point that forms part of a pattern of some form of wrongdoing(Lsch:17§C).


  1. This requires that at the outset everything be listed. Later on the data will be sorted out into what is or is not a commonality point showing wrongdoing; see the table of commonalities and patterns template(* >ol:282).

  1. At the end of each meeting, the agenda for what the members should do at home and what they will do at the next meeting should be set. That includes growing the group; getting documents; and networking to be able to present at the right time any incriminating audit results to journalists and presidential candidates(ol:269§2).


  1. The meeting will have been a success if the consensus is, not ‘that guy is a lot of fun. I wish him well’, but rather, ‘Our group leader is a slavemaster… but we got a lot done. We’re gonna get that judge! I’m coming to the next meeting with my friend’.


  1. Working together breeds enthusiasm and optimism. It can coalesce ineffective single parties into a team of achievers with valuable skills that they can teach others in their own and the public interest.


  1. The members will be asked to invest effort, time, and resources to grow the group of parties before their and other judges; and to spot insiders who can be persuaded to become confidential informants(jur:106§c). That is how they can become the organizers of their court’s questers for justice. As such, they will organize other courts in their city, in other state cities, and in other states.


  1. A group that first met in an apartment garage and had to put their computers on a door resting over two trash cans can grow to become a Tea Party-like entity: a national civic movement of people who pursue strategically and with determination their conviction that We the People are the masters of all public servants, including judicial ones, and are entitled to hold them accountable and liable to their victims.


  1. We can become the People’s Champions of Justice(ol:235§C).

NOTE 2: Watch the interview with Dr. Richard Cordero, Esq., by Alfred Lambremont Webre, JD, MEd, on the issue of exposing judges’ wrongdoing and bringing about judicial reform, at:



Dr. Cordero: U.S. Judiciary goes Rogue – 99.82% complaints vs. Judges are dismissed; U.S. Justice Sonia Sotomayor hides assets with impunity.

NOTE 3: All my replies are shared with the group that I am trying to form to expose wrongdoing judges and advocate judicial reform, and the national public that I am trying to inform thereof.

If you wish to engage in private communications with me, you must first retain my consulting services; otherwise, your communications are part of your contribution to advancing our common cause of judicial wrongdoing exposure and reform.

NOTE 4: For consulting services, I charge $350 per hour plus expenses and incidentals to be deducted from a retainer of $7,500-$10,000 paid in advance.

The fee for an appearance as an expert witness in a court in New York City is $1,500 per half a day in addition to preparation and any written statement for it, transportation, and any other expenses and incidentals. The fee for appearing in a court outside New York City is determined by the amount of time that it will require plus transportation, hotel, meals, and communication expenses and incidentals.

You can determine the quality of my legal research and writing by examining the articles that I post and my study of the Federal Judiciary and its judges, the models for their state counterparts(* >jur:1):

To evaluate my oral advocacy skills, please watch the interview referred to in NOTE 2 above.

I trust that I am helping all victims of wrongdoing judges and advocates of honest judiciaries with my analysis, strategy, and proposals for action in my articles. But attaining our objectives requires that we all join forces to implement those proposals. Will you join in your own as well as the national public interest? If so, please let me know.



From Harpersville, Georgia–a Judicially run extortion racket–ABA Journal reports


Depositions indicate that criminal defendants appearing in the Harpersville Municipal Court

“have been subjected to repeated and ongoing violations of almost every safeguard afforded by the United States Constitution, the laws of the State of Alabama, and the Rules of Criminal Procedure,” Harrington wrote in an order (PDF) issued Wednesday.

Harrington temporarily enjoined the city from incarcerating individuals on probation or in post-conviction proceedings unless it first holds a hearing and then obtains his permission. He also said individuals who are convicted must have at least 30 days to pay fines and court costs without being assessed additional fines.

Harrington said the constitutional violations are “so numerous as to defy a detailed chronicling in this short space.”

Defendants are placed on probation with the company, he said, when they are unable to pay the entire amount of assessed fines and court costs on the day of trial. Defendants are jailed, without adjudication, for failure to pay fines or appear in court. Because of the failure to appear or pay, there is a new criminal charge for contempt of court with incarceration and additional fines, again without adjudication. In some cases, fines and fees amounts to “thousands upon thousands of dollars.”

. “When viewed in a light most favorable to defendants, their testimony concerning the city’s court system could reasonably be characterized as the operation of a debtors prison,” he wrote. “The court notes that these generally fell into disfavor by the early 1800s, though the practice appears to have remained commonplace in Harpersville. From a fair reading of the defendants’ testimony one might ascertain that a more apt description of the Harpersville Municipal Court practices is that of a judicially sanctioned extortion racket. Most distressing is that these abuses have been perpetrated by what is supposed to be a court of law. Disgraceful.”

Let’s hear it for the brave judge to buck the system and say the Emperor has no clothes.  For certain, someone tied in is getting kickbacks to get this predatory criminal system into the court system.

It is most interesting the ABA turns off comments.  You will note when my suspension for blogging about corruption resulted in an avalanche of posts coming to my defense, denigrating the behavior of MacCarthy’s flying monkey team, the ABA pulled all of those comments.

They, however, were saved on this blog and you can search for them.

I applaud the ABA for publishing the truth of what the court systems have become in recent decades.  Ken and I will tell you that before there was a great deal of integrity.  But my research shows that the court system, the attorney registration boards have become infiltrated with mob types.

That has to end. We have to reclaim our state and US constitutions.

Lyle Harrison was recently in prison, they refused to treat a broken tooth properly, they drugged prisoners against their will for filing grievances, and they fed the prisoners a diet of 1,000 calories or less–to grown men.  I asked the 4th district to investigate and they returned my Motion to Appeal as denied but not signed by any justice in particular–just the clerk.   (Moultrie County, Illinois)  Both Lyle and his brother lost significant weight.  Andrew, a grown man of taller than average size went down to under 100 lbs in the prison system after 2 months.

And Lisa Madigan, Anita Alvarez and Diane Saltoun “don’t do” court corruption, or any other corruption it seems.

Only from Texas–Can granny stand her ground and shoot?


Now I want you to know, I didn’t write this and I don’t advocate violence.  I certainly don’t advocate shooting all the miscreant GAL’s and “professional guardians” out there by grandma and grandpa, but probate blog followers certainly are creative and imaginative.

I have published on this blog (somewhere) the name of a grandpa, who, when targeted, the miscreants (court appointed jerks) showed up at his door step with a court order and police and told he had to leave and go to a locked down nursing home.  What did grandpa do?  Get on his motorcycle and smash into a tree down the block at 60 mph. Worked.  He was dead on the spot.

But what if he stood his ground and argued (correctly) the order was unconstitutional, it violated due process, the 14th amendment for equal protection, the Americans with Disabilities act and draining an estate, isolating a senior and drugging him, and wrongfully imprisoning him in a locked down nursing home entitled him to “stand his ground”.

Others argues that the Geneva Convention on preventing torture of prisoners (false imprisonment, drugging, isolation, etc.) violate that international treaty.  Janet Phelan, a renown international investigative reporter is working on that.

So what are all the laws and what if granny stood her ground? Would she be acquitted?  Apparently victims of domestic abuse are not supposed to be charged with murder when they finally get the upper hand, but they routine are, and only a handful since the domestic abuse and criminal prosecution actions were published have been exonerated–may times they were only acting in self defense.

So the Texans are apparently working on this point.  I guess if you’re going to have guns and violence, it must be Texas and it must be a senior with a gun.

The truth about what happened to Casey Kasem–daughter breaks silences and advocates for parental visitation


If you read the story, by the time the daughter got a court order to see her own dad, from an evil second wife and guardian, dad was too sick.  Typical story of bedsores, neglect, fluid filled lungs–belonged in a hospital weeks ago.

He could not be saved, but the kids could visit.

She now supports visitation laws and enacting them across the country — as does the Catherine Falk Organization so that ailing parents do not have to be isolated from caring loving children.  Let’s pray for them and their work.
