Thanks, Jakkie, this is a good example of unfairness in the SC court system.
Maddaloni v. Piddanick

!. Fuge would not let me speak in temp hearing (date)
- He made up evidence (how did he do that?)
- He opened past files to use evidence unrelated to case against me
- Told me he will take away my child
- told me I was a whining ex that was out for money
- As I testified Fuge wrote what looked to be a grocery list
- Mis quoted me
- changed the verdict after the case and hiring
- Recusal himself and then unrecused himself
- As Regina, frank bolgra, Horton, and others rule the way he wants provided by a kickback system albert clay as proof of.
Much more please see my lawsuit, FUGE in VIOLATION OF THE FOLLOWING:
Canon 1: A judge shall uphold the integrity and independence of the Judiciary
A judge should participate in establishing, maintaining and enforcing high standards of conduct.
Deference to the judgements and ruling of courts depends upon public confidence in the integrity and independence of judges. The integrity and independence of judges depends in turn upon their acting without fear of favor. Although judges should be independent, they must comply with the law including the provisions of the code.
Canon 2: Judge Shall Avoid Impropriety and the Appearance of Impropriety in all of the Judge’s Activities.
- A judge shall respect and comply with the law and shall act at all times in a manner that promotes public confidence in the integrity and impartiality of the judiciary.
Public confidence in the judiciary is eroded by irresponsible or improper conduct by judges.

Cannon 3: A judge shall Perform the Duties of Judicial Office Impartially and Diligently

- A judge shall be faithful to the Laws and maintain professional Competence in it.
- A judge shall be patient dignified and courteous to litigants.
- A judge shall perform judicial duties without bias or prejudice, a judge must refrain from speech, gestures or other conduct that could reasonably be perceived as sexual harassment

A Judge shall NOT, while a proceeding is pending or impending in any court, make any public comment that might reasonably be expected to affect its outcome or impair the fairness of the trial (Fuge was said to have recusal Administrative Responsibilities. A judge shall diligently discharge the judge’s administrative responsibilities without bias, prejudice and cooperate other judges.
- D. Disciplinary Responsibilities
A judge who receives information indicating a substantial likelihood that another judge has committed a violation of this code should take appropriate action. (Cely Brigmann, the other judge who followed Fuge’s ruling).
A judge shall disqualify himself or herself in a proceeding in which the Judge’s impartiality might reasonably be questioned, including but not limited to instances where: Impartiality might reasonably be questioned. Or the judge has a personal bias or prejudice concerning a party.

You should get copies of these lawsuits and look them over.
- Went after me without having an order
- Followed me out of daycare at low country day to see if I buckled child in correctly. Stood and watched me. Harassment
Rule 1.11 Special conflicts of interest
(1) Since Marshall Horton is a magistrate judge in Beaufort s.c as I understand it, He should have been disqualified to represent a client within this jurisdiction without proper approval.
Rule 1.15 safekeeping.
(A)(b) A lawyer must keep your funds separate from others and my only place their own money in account for fees
Rule 3.3 candor towards judge
- Lawyer Marshall Horton lied to judge repeatedly
- Offer evidence that is known to be false. Facebook post was not mine. Facebook was cut and pasted in email to make look like a slender statement. Introduced evidence that was found to be false or before the date to the court order.
(4) legal arguments: lied to judge about Facebook post and past evidence that was found to be ungrounded. Also stated Fuge was recused when he wasn’t.
(5) offering evidence, can prove the evidence in Cely Brigman case was of past-dismissed claims and is double jeopardy in which Horton built his whole case around faulty evidence and the evidence was before the court order in question leaving it inadmissible evidence.
(8) lawyer must know evidence is false, yes Mr. Horton (Christopher Maddaloni’s) lawyer was providing evidence that was known to him to be false.
(12) lawyer must report fraud. Mr. Horton was part of the fraud with Peter Fuge.
Rule 4.4 respect the rights of 3rd party
Mr. Robertson was on my property to help keep me safe from Chris MADDALONI during exchanges. Mr. Horton harassed Mr Robertson by stating Robertson followed Chris Maddaloni when he had no proof and wrote letters to Mr. Robertson’s lawyer trying to file a restraining order against Mr. Robertson without cause.
Horton would write orders outside of verdict.

Regina is in violation, a report was never done and my emails asking if Chris has done his therapy are not returned. PLEASE report her… Chris never did his therapy and is in Contempt.
She never wrote report on clients
She failed to call witness until I asked her every day
She failed to investigate
She ruled the way the judge wanted her too, with no true evidence.
Rich Ulrich Private Detective
Title 40 Professions and Occupation
Trustworthy, honesty business.
Rich, when he found out Mr. Horton was the opposing attorney, Rich stopped charging me claiming he wanted to help but in reality, Rich was not charging so he can use what he learned to sell and or give to opposing counsel. Sally Murphy has proof of this. I do not but Mr. Horton knew more than I ever told him when I realized it was Rich I stopped all communication. This put my child’s Life in jeopardy. He needs to be reported. SLED of SC
Mr. Hall prosecutor in state v Maddaloni
Rule 3.8 special responsibility of a prosecutor. The prosecutor must administer justice. Mr. He’ll shook Mr. Horton’s hand and Mr. Horton asked if they were going golfing. Then told the judge (Beth price, who was punished or having Mexicans do her legal work up) Mr. Hall lied to cover for Chris Maddaloni stating there was a shuffle that hurt the baby. The police reports that baby had knocked marks and Chris had 3 different stories to the cops to cover up his crime of child abuse and endangerment.
(5) prejudice statements… Mr. Hall told me I was changing my story when I protested
Rule 1.1 Competence: Brent was not prepared on the laws of Domestic Violence. He did not as the court to follow the law of abusers and visitation even though I screamed it at him. He chose to ignore me.
Rule 1.1 (5), would tell me that we would sit down and meet and he never allowed me to. Brent always called last minute to prepare and never followed through with his course of actions he was hired for. (filing my motion RTSC)
Rule 1.1 (6) Brent was not aware of the Domestic violence laws of 2008
Rule 1.2 (5) scope: refused to file suit against Maddaloni and Fuge
Rule 1.2 (10) Brent known the order against me were fraud and the opposing lawyer was fraudulent but never addressed it or stopped it out of unlawfulness.
Rule 1.3 Diligence: was not worried about working on my behalf, never followed through with motions and was always last minute with prep that we were hindered and I the client had to prepare the trial.
Rule 1.4 Communication
- Area of promptly informing client. I had asked Brent to appeal not do a motion 59
- Reasonable consult with client. Would never sit down with me a talk about decisions or outcomes nothing.
- Promptly reply for information. Still has not returned all evidence I have been asking for over the 6 months. Made an appeal process impossible
- No real explanation only his paralegal and I had to scream at her to get him on the phone when the law states the lawyer must explain to an extent to ensure the client understands. This was denied for me. Motion 59 was not something I wanted to do. I wanted a superseded but Brent was fraudulently working to help Mr. Horton because Mr. Hortons client was a millionaire and wanted the order not to be stopped.
The whole law Rule 1.4 was denied. I at one point have proof I thought my lawyer Mr. Kiker had dropped me and I reached out to other lawyers. Mr. Kiker, would not return calls nor emails or show up at office for lengths of time. Mr. Kiker withheld information at all times. As one example, Mr. Horton named Brent Kiker the trier of fact and I stated that’s the judge not a lawyer but neither lawyer would address what that meant.
RESPONSE: we need to go with something concrete such as changed transcripts, changed docket, exparte conversations. There is a rule that the client has the obligation to manage counsel and fire them when they don’t do their job.
Rule 1.5 FEES
(F) written agreement: Brent Kiker and I never had a written agreement and I have proof that I repeatedly asked for one and / or an invoice in which I never got but you better believe I was harassed for the money and when I was quoted a price for the filing
Of the RTSC motion (he never filed), Brent Kiker charged me $2,500 more than quoted and never filed my motion. I literally was running cash everyday to his door or checks so he would file it.
RESPONSE: Ask him for a detailed statement. Do you have proof you asked him to file a RTSC for the $2500 and he never did it? Then, you can go to the bar association and ask the money be returned.
Rule 1.6 Confidentiality
Brent allows Mr. Horton to know about my side of the case and repeatedly made it look like he, Brent was working when he would never ask certain questions that were contempts against Mr. Horton’s client during the trial, but Mr. Horton somehow knew everything about me. In my hearing with Judge Brigman, Horton admits to Brent telling all.
Did he betray and client/attorney secrets? Basic facts about your case already in the record don’t count.
Rule 1.7 Identifying Conflicts of interest: Material Limitations
A conflict of interest exists when something holds back the lawyer from doing his job. Brent Kiker would not follow through with certain issues, like domestic violence laws or filing my suite or report Horton for acting unlawfully or Judge Fuge due to his career.
Rule 1.9 Duties to former clients
Rule 1.10 imputation of conflicts of interest
(3) When loyalty to the client is in question. Due to Mr. Kiker not addressing me when contempt motions were sent to Kiker law firm when Brent was not retained and then sent to me when it was too late. Even though I was not in contempt. This was also a violation of Marshall Horton.
An attorney has a duty to provide the client promptly with all communications sent or received regarding the case, did he do that?
(4) Would not use the Domestic violence 2008 laws not 2015 in later court dates. If fact steered around certain questions. That was done by Brent.
1.16 declining or terminating representation
Brent failed to give me motions, letters from Fuge and letters sent from Marshall Horton stating contempt. This directly impacted my case by getting my appeal dismissed and being lead to believe a recusal had occurred.
Make a list of these and how he didn’t send them promptly to you (within a few days) and file a bar complaint
(9) Brent was fired nervous times and refused to remove himself
Rule 3.3 candor laws
(2) refused to push laws of domestic violence 2008. Law states the lawyer must fight for the client.
Rule 3.4 fairness to opposing counsel, a lawyer must not block clients right to evidence. Brent Kiker would not give me the motion 59. I asked all evidence be given back and I have yet to receive the 2014 transcripts of state v. Maddaloni and the cd of Chris admitted violence. I had to over and over call, text, beg, stop by and was met with no response.
That is definitely a bar complaint. Document the day the pleading was filed and all attempts to get the document from you lawyer.

Please add in: changed transcripts, blocked transcripts, changed or altered documents and evidence; exparte conversations; OC going into judge’s private area with you or your counsel
I also understand you cannot get transcripts, that the Clerk of Court is in charge of the court reporters in the court and she has told you verbally she will not give you the names of the court reporters. Please write her a letter, certified mail, and ask her for the names of all court reporters and their contact information for every transcript you do not have, then report that to the FBI.
