Atty Ken Ditkowsky will be on air tonight talking about his wrongful discipline of a 4 year suspension for talking about the Mary G Sykes 09 P 4585 case in Cook County where an elderly 90 year old woman was held against her will in a 5 year guardianship, and after millions were stripped illegally from her assets, the money was gone and she was narcotized to death.

Subject: Our discussion scheduled for tonight.
Every lawyer when he is sworn in by the State Supreme Court agrees to and takes an oath to defend the Constitution. The lawyers who reside in the nadir of the profession have trouble finding jobs doing real live law work and thus the bottom level obtain employment at the Lawyer disciplinary commissions. It is thus to be expected that some of the lawyers at the IARDC and other disciplinary commissions fail to understand their jobs and their Constitutional responsibilities. Such is the only explanation that can be made for the recent assaults by the IARDC on basic core values and Constitutional protections. Even a pre-teen is fully aware that JoAnne Denision’s and my call for an HONEST INVESTIGATION is protected by the First Amendment and Article 1 of the Illinois Constitution. Indeed, the fact that you were even asked about your assembly with people like yours truly is outrageous. The First Amendment protects the right of association and assembly – and government inquiry into who your friends are, who you talk to, and who you associate with are improper inquiry.
The Civil Rights division of the Justice Department pursuant to 18 USCA 241 and 18 USCA 242 should investigate the use of public money to suppress Free Speech.
The Elder Cleansing scandal is enlightening as the law is so clear — in America such conduct is a felony and cannot be tolerated.
the guardian law is derived from the ancient Chancery doctrine of parens patrie. (Society has an obligation to protect those in society who cannot do so for themselves). The Chancellor dealt with this problem, however, her in America the legislature passed laws to protect the disabled person and to prevent the travesty that we now face. At the Federal Level the Americans With Disabilities Act was passed to provide a National mechanism to see that a disability did not result in a loss of core citizen rights, privileges etc. At the State level we had more specific statutes. Most states adopted the uniform acts. The Illinois law is found at 755 ILCS 5/11a – 1 et seq. This act limits the jurisdiction of the Court. The act explains:
(755 ILCS 5/11a-3)
(from Ch. 110 1/2, par. 11a-3)
Adjudication of disability; Power to appoint guardian.
(a) Upon the filing of a petition by a reputable person or by the alleged person with a disability himself or on its own motion, the court may adjudge a person to be a person with a disability, but only if it has been demonstrated by clear and convincing evidence that the person is a person with a disability as defined in Section 11a-2. If the court adjudges a person to be a person with a disability, the court may appoint (1) a guardian of his person, if it has been demonstrated by clear and convincing evidence that because of his disability he lacks sufficient understanding or capacity to make or communicate responsible decisions concerning the care of his person, or (2) a guardian of his estate, if it has been demonstrated by clear and convincing evidence that because of his disability he is unable to manage his estate or financial affairs, or (3) a guardian of his person and of his estate.
(b) Guardianship shall be utilized only as is necessary to promote the well-being of the person with a disability, 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 necessitated by the individual's actual mental, physical and adaptive limitations.

I’ve emphasized the important sections of the Statute! I do so because in the Mary Sykes case there was no hearing as to her competency, and the proceedings were by ambush rather than notice. Judge Connors at page 90 and following of her evidence deposition testified that if someone had informed her of the deficiencies (as to jurisdiction) she would have stopped the proceedings and corrected the technicalities – however, she would have reached the same result. [IN THE SYKES CASE THERE WAS NO SUMMONS, NO NOTICE, AND NO HEARING – Adam Stern admitted in an e-mail to Gloria Sykes that he got together with the 2nd GAL and the attorney for the petitioner, they drafted an order and Judge Connors signed it! ]
The aforesaid admission that she was ‘wired’ has given rise to no more notice than the Seth Gillman plea of guilty to over 100 million dollars in theft from the United STates of America in his personal health care fraud. The IARDC, the Judicial Inquiry Board and the press are silent and uncaring as to both assaults on citizen rights! Is it any wonder why our call for an HONEST INVESTIGATION promulgated disciplinary action by the IARDC against both JoAnne and myself!
