From Ken Ditkowsky–new SCOTUS cases uphold broad interpretation of 1st amendment rights

With regard to the Lanre Amu case, a lawyer who discovered that Judge Lynn Egan was granting far too many motions to certain litigants appearing before her.  Attorney Amu discovered that certain litigants were being represented by Judge Lynn Egan’s brother’s law firm and this appeared to help that firm win many questionable motions.  Of course, Judge Lynn Egan isn’t supposed to have her brother or his law firm appearing before her.  That would be unethical.  So Crain’s Chicago Business conducted an investigation and found that not only that was true, but Judge Egan was sitting on the Board of various suburban hospitals and also hearing their cases and again,  motions were being won by the defendant hospitals far too many times.  The hospitals kicked Judge Egan off their Boards and apologized for the corruption.
Nothing has happened to Judge Egan for all of this, oh, and in addition, when Attorney Lanre Amu wrote to the Judicial Inquiry Board complaining about the corruption, that’s when the Illinois ARDC went after HIM, accusing him of lying, just as they falsely accused Ken and I of lying, and then put together the same type of court court with a lack of integrity and convicted us all—OF TELLING THE TRUTH.
The people who have done this, Jerome Larkin, Melissa Smart, Steven Splitt and Sharon Opryszek have absolutely no guilt, remorse, sympathy or empathy.  They are part of and assist in corruption at every level of the ARDC.  No wonder why the ARDC has not forced a single lawyer to turn over some 27 videos showing innocent South Siders being shot in cold blood by the CPD.
From Ken Ditkowsky:
Let’s do an analysis of the cases handed down by the Supreme Court of the United States last week.

3) Packingham v. North Carolina

Date Filed: June 19, 2017

Case #: 15-1194

KENNEDY, J., delivered the opinion of the Court, in which GINSBURG, BREYER, SOTOMAYOR, and KAGAN, JJ., joined. ALITO, J., filed an opinion concurring in the judgment, in which ROBERTS, C. J., and THOMAS, J., joined. GORSUCH, J., took no part in the consideration or decision of the case.

CONSTITUTIONAL LAW: Under the First Amendment’s Free Speech Clause and the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, North Carolina’s law making it a felony for a registered sex offender to access commonplace social media websites is unconstitutionally invalid because it suppresses lawful speech as a mean to suppress unlawful speech.

Respondent passed a law making it a felony for a registered sex offender to access commercial social media websites, such as Facebook and Twitter. Petitioner, a registered sex offender, had a parking ticket dismissed against him in state court. In response, Petitioner posted on Facebook under a pseudonym. A police officer saw the post and confirmed that it was Petitioner by checking court records and obtaining further evidence via a search warrant. Petitioner was indicted by a grand jury and the trial court denied Petitioner’s motion to dismiss on the grounds that the statute violated the First Amendment. Petitioner was subsequently convicted, but his prison sentence was suspended. Respondent never brought any allegation claiming that Petitioner had contacted a minor or performed any other illicit act while on the internet. Petitioner then appealed to the Court of Appeals of North Carolina which reversed determining that the statute violated the First Amendment and failed strict scrutiny review. The North Carolina Supreme Court reversed finding the statute was “constitutional in all respects.” Petitioners then appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court which granted certiorari to decide “whether the law is permissible under the First Amendment’s Free Speech Clause, applicable to the States under the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.” The Court determined that the statute was invalid. Using the precedent in Ashcroft, the Court reasoned that the law was overly broad in that it suppressed lawful speech as a means of suppressing unlawful speech.  REVERSED and REMANDED.

[Summarized by: Grant Elder]


While a lawyer and a sex offender are not quite identical, the point is illustrated that Jerome Larkin and the Illinois Supreme Court cannot prevent you from complaining about judicial corruption and in particular the very same factual corruption scandal that was reported in Crain’s Chicago Business!
How does therefore does Larkin justify any claim against you?     In a word – RACISM!    Rule 8.3 of the Canons of legal ethics demands that you do exactly what you did.   Thus, the proposition is presented that Rule 8.3 applied only to a particular group of lawyers and not other lawyers.    The interim suspension suggests that the discrimination is prima facia racial and due to your dark hue to your skin!

Case #: 15–1293

ALITO, J., announced the judgment of the Court and delivered the opinion of the Court with respect to Parts I, II, and III–A, in which ROBERTS, C. J., and KENNEDY, GINSBURG, BREYER, SOTOMAYOR, and KAGAN, JJ., joined, and in which THOMAS, J., joined except for Part II, and an opinion with respect to Parts III–B, III–C, and IV, in which ROBERTS, C. J., and THOMAS and BREYER, JJ., joined. KENNEDY, J., filed an opinion concurring in part and concurring in the judgment, in which GINSBURG, SOTOMAYOR, and KAGAN, JJ., joined. THOMAS, J., filed an opinion concurring in part and concurring in the judgment. GORSUCH, J., took no part in the consideration or decision of the case.

Full Text Opinion: https://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/16pdf/15-1293_1o13.pdf

FIRST AMENDMENT: The disparagement clause of 15 U. S. C. §1052(a), which forbids the registration of trademarks containing possible “disparage . . . or bring . . . into contemp[t] or disrepute” to any “persons,” is viewpoint regulation of private speech that fails First Amendment scrutiny.

Respondent’s trademark application was denied by Petitioner, the Patent and Trademark Office, because it contained an historically racially offensive slur: “The Slants.” Petitioner cited to 15 U. S. C. §1052(a) (the “Disparagement Clause”), which forbids the registration of trademarks containing possible “disparage . . . or bring . . . into contemp[t] or disrepute” to any “persons.” The Federal Circuit Court of Appeals determined that the Disparagement Clause facially violated the First Amendment, because it regulates expressive conduct in a manner that does not satisfy strict scrutiny. The U.S. Supreme Court agreed. The Court, by majority, determined that trademarks are private speech and not government speech, because Petitioner does not create the content that it reviews in trademark registrations. The Court also noted that once the trademark is registered, Petitioner is prohibited from removing the trademark based on viewpoint. The remainder of the Court’s analyses regarding other narrow doctrines of the First Amendment (including: government subsidy doctrine, government program doctrine, public forum doctrine, and commercial speech doctrine) were split four to four, but the full Court concurred in judgment that the Disparagement Clause would not pass the scrutiny required by any of the doctrines argued. AFFIRMED.

It may be disparaging to tell the truth about elected judges who pay large sums of money to be slated for the office of judge and it may not be politically correct in Chicago or any large City to disclose corruption – especially in the judiciary, but if I can call an Asian person a name that is disparaging and be within the Constitution protections, I certainly can call a ‘spade’ a ‘spade’ and a corrupt judge “corrupt!”
Indeed – all the facades have been lifted and the naked truth has been exposed!    Lanre Amu was targeted.    First he was targeted because he exercised his CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS.   How dare a Man with a dark color hue to his skin – who is a naturalized American who immigrated from Africa – complain just because a corrupt judge, who just happens to be on the Board of a defendant seeking adjudication in her courtroom will not recuse herself!   How dare such an individual should complain because the defendant’s law firm happens to employ the brother of the judge!   How dare a respected business publication make the same complaint as this *****!
Mr. Amu – to me this situation creates the impression of very serous racism, and with coupled with the discourtesy afforded Diane Nash (a civil rights icon) I can only conclude that JEROME LARKIN and his 18 USCA 371 co-conspirators are the worst kind of racists.
I’ve written to the IARDC, Jerome Larkin and prominent members of the political community demanding Justice for Lanre Amu many times and no relief has been afforded.    I therefore as a REASONABLE MAN must conclude that RACISM AND JIM CROW are the POLICY OF THE STATE OF ILLINOIS!   SHAME! SHAME!
