On November 12, 2019, Miriam Solo (aka Soloveichik/Grienfield/Faskowitz) filed a Petition for Authority to disburse funds from the Estate of Ralla Klepak to various charities:

a. Victory Gardens Theater for $100,000

b. Steppenwolf Theater for $100,000

c. Northlight Theater for $100,000

d.  WFMT for $50,000,

e.  John Marshall Law School for $250,000, etc.

You get the point.  The petition was supposed to be presented on January 8, 2020. It was filed with a proposed order.

However the day before, on January 7, 2020, the Illinois state ATG filed an appearance in the matter, Kawme Raoul and Pasquale Esposito.

After a file check, it appears most of the file is missing, including any order from January 8, 2020.  In addition, it appears that the January 8, 2020 order never issued.  The Probate Clerk’s offices are investigating and looking for the order, if it was in fact issued.

No inventory has been filed in the case, but as the estate is an “unsupervised” type, no inventory is required to be filed.

I will inquire further of the state ATG and see if I can get them to provide any information on the distribution of such large amounts of cash to various charities.

Probate case No. 06 P 482, Circuit Court Cook County, Daley Center
In re Alice Gore, a disabled adult, age 95
Judge: Kowamoto
GAL: Miriam Solo (aka Soloveichik, Greenfield, Fisk)
Atty for Bev Cooper, daughter and prior guardian: Karen Bowes, Rinella and Rinella

Our story begins in April 2007. Mother Alice Gore is subsisting in an abusive nursing home chosen by the Cook County Guardianship court with the approval of numerous attorneys, including Miriam Solo and other courtroom vendors, including Benjamin Topp, MSW from Rehab Assist. None of these persons, during this story, appeared to report the egregious abuse to anyone, nor did they seem concerned at all that 95 year old Alice Gore was placed in a nursing home with inadequate crappy food, had no bed linens and was sleeping directly on a plastic mattress, had constant bed sores, and was often found dirty and smelly. The room she was in often had a pervasive foul odor of urine.

On April 3, 2007 Bev Cooper sent an email to her attorney Karen Bowes asking her to get a detailed invoice of the $6,000 per month from Lakeview Nurwing home for her mother’s care.

She notes that the food is insufficient in the amount and nourishment and the “caloric value is zero”. P. 1 This is of crucial concern because her mother, Alice Gore has lost some 48 lbs recently and she should be on a high calorie, highly nutritious diet.

At the time, Alice Gore is 95.

Mrs. Cooper further complains that the court has put in place her mentally ill daughter, Kimberly Cooper who has been in and out of mental facilities all her life and struggles with mental illness. She notes that Kimberly Cooper has had 54 placements over the years in metal health facilities.

She also notes that Alice Cooper has “failure to thrive” and was diagnosed with pneumonia. P.1

P. 2. Mrs. Cooper is concerned that the deliberate weight loss is so the nursing home may perform an unnecessary procedure and insert a feeding tube. Mother eats slowly and Bev Cooper has been faithfully chopping and feeding her mother which is a task the nursing home does not want to be bothered with.

P. 2, § 2, Bev Cooper is concerned that mother’s pinky finger is broken, black and infected.

At the top of page 2, she notes her mother has a bed sore on her back. Bed sores in nursing homes are considered malpractice and negligence per se.

Mrs. Cooper notes she saw a “gentleman in a wheelchair” who was left in place for six hours, two hours before she came, and four hours while she was there.

Page 3, Mrs. Cooper complains to her attorney Karen Bowes of Rinella and Rinella that her mother is not being fed properly and has been diagnosed with “failure to thrive”

She further complains that her mother is not being hydrated and does not have access to water or a water pitcher.

She complains that her mother (who has recently lost 48 lbs) is grossly underweight. Mother has no bed linens but sleeps on a plastic sheet. Mrs. Cooper notes this is a classic case of “elder abuse”. Page 4.

On April 15, 2007, Bev Cooper complains the temperture in her mother’s room was 85 degrees and an overwhelming smell of stale urine in the room. Again, there is no sheet on her bed and Mother is sleeping on a plastic mattress cover. Page 4.

She complains that her mother is dangerously underweight, but gets low calorie and low fat and low protein meals.

Page 4A, Attorney Miriam Solo (aka Soloveichik/Greenfield/Faskowitz) threatened to file complaints against any attorney that tried to help my mother, gave guardianship and power of attorney for health care to my daughter Kimberly who has a long documented history of mental illness and has been psych hospitalized many times, threatened to put a feeding tube in Mother in retaliation for my complaints which would prevent her from ever eating again, threatened me and my lawyer, the judge will never listen to my complaints of egregious elder abuse my mother has suffered. Page 4A.

Bev Cooper complains her mother is constantly hungry, thirsty, filthy, smelly, ulcerated and underweight–in the nursing home which Solo arranged for Alice Gore which is far from daughter Bev Cooper’s home in Highland Park. The nursing home is on Diversey Parkway in Chicago. Page 4A.

On April 22, 2007, Bev Cooper complains to her attorney regarding the threats of inserting a feeding tube against Mother’s wishes and consent, that it would be a dangerous and ill advised procedure in light of her “distended bowel”. Page 5.

On page 6, the issue of bed sores or pressure sores continues. These are per se malpractice for any nursing home, yet Miriam Solo insists that Mother Alice Gore be kept in this nursing home.

Although the nursing home is being paid $6,000 to care for Alice Gore, instead of moving her to a competent nursing home near daughter Bev Cooper, the attorneys recommend a private duty nurse (paid for by the Estate) to come every day to care for Alice Gore. Page 6.  This drives up the cost to care for Alice Gore by thousands per month–money that is given to preferred court room vendors

Page 7, regarding the nursing home chosen by Miriam Solo, Bev Cooper responds “I would not keep my dog in [this nursing home]”.

Page 8, things improve at the nursing home, but Mother still is not provided with a linen sheet on her bed and she continues to sleep directly on a plastic mattress covering.

Page 8, a CNA explains the improvements were due to the fact the state was coming to inspect the nursing home, but the CNA warned after the inspection, things would go back to normal–no good food, dirt and filth and residents ignored for hours at a time with no assistance.

Page 9, on April 25, 2007 Dr. Baumash recommends that Mother Gore be transferred to a nursing home in Highland Park. This never happens.

Page 10. On May 1, 2007, Bev Cooper continues to complain to her attorney, Karen Bowes to insist that she advocate for Alice Gore because Mother is being abused at the nursing home. Case Manager, Benjamin Topp, MSW from Rehab Assist is involved and he is doing nothing about the situation.  The situation does not change at all for poor Alice Gore.

Page 11. On May 1, 2007, daughter Bev Cooper complains that her mother had been placed in a room with an ill patient that had created a “bio hazzard and contaminated room”. This was a dementia patient who for 7 hours continuously spewed vile language. The patient was tied to her wheelchair for 7 hours, until she managed to escape and fell to the floor.  It is not know if this person was ever helped after that and when they were helped.

On April 30, 2007, daughter requests her mother be weighed, but the weighing process was done with her mother in a sling with blankets and pillows and a result of 111 lbs. Despite repeated requests by daughter Bev Cooper to take Mother’s weight with the right procedure and the right equipment (a chair scale), this never happened.

On page 12, Bev Cooper’s complains that it appears the nursing home called the police on her for simply asking her mother be removed from a contaminated room with a vile roommate, a bio hazard situation and that her mother be fed fresh foods (see below).

On page 12 to 13, Bev Cooper complains that the puddings served to her mother have expiration dates of 2001-2002 and the food in the containers is clearly degraded.

Finally, on page 13, Bev Cooper notes that now Miriam Solo has brought an “order of protection” against Bev Cooper because she advocates for her mother and will not tolerate the filth, bad food, lousy living conditions of Lake View Nursing home. Co conspirators in the abuse, besides Mirima Solo include: Rehab Assist, Michael Elkes, etc.

On page 14, Bev Cooper again complains to her attorney about Benjamin Topp doing nothing about the elder abuse her mother is suffering. She asked Heidi Kronenberg, a case manager from Rehab Assist to also help end the elder abuse her mother is suffering and for the credential of Rehab Assist and were they properly licensed by the State of Illinois. She received no action and no response on an entirely reasonable request. Page 15.

On page 16, the court orders that Bev Cooper can only visit her mother with a court ordered supervisor, Jeanette Lounghein for a maximum of 5 days per week and that the supervisor can terminate visitation at any time she deems fit. Kindred Guardian Services will continue to provide a private duty nurse (at a nursing home? Really?) P. 17. A citation continues to remove Bev Cooper as Guardian of the Estate (for protecting her Mother from abuse). The court order mentions nothing about the abuse of Alice Gore. Pages 16 to 18. Order was entered Aug. 28, 2007.

On May 14, 2008, Bev Cooper writes to Judge Timothy Evans, the Chief Judge of the Circuit Court about the abuse of 95 year old Alice Gore. Page 19.

She complains about the continuing abuse of her mother and how both Miriam Solo and Judge Kowamoto have continued to aide and abet the abuse and/or cover it up by not allowing Bev Cooper to speak in court.

On Page 20, Bev Cooper complains bitterly about Miriam Solo’s complete lack of ethics and how she inserted herself into an estate in Florida, when it appears that Miriam Solo and her siblings are completely related to that decedent and she has directly, or indirectly appeared to have filed false affidavits and pleadings with the Florida court system;

Page 21, Bev Cooper has a chronic cough and finger nail fungus which is never treated at the nursing home. She continues on in detail about how her mother’s life has constantly been threatened by the inadequate care received at Lakeview Nursing home, and how the attorneys and judges aided and abetted the elder abuse as well as tried to cover it up in court.

Page 22, Bev Cooper notes that the cost of all the court room vendors, case managers and supervisors has run up the bill on the nursing home to $20,000 per month.

Page 23, Bev Cooper details how Miriam Solo wtihdrew her brother from an Estate in Florida because her brother, Mordechai, is on disability and she did not want him to lose his disability, but that is nothing but public assistance fraud.

Page 24. Judge Timothy Evans expressed in a letter to Beverly Cooper, he is not concerned about the situation with Alice Gore but has pushed the matter over to presiding judge Henry Budzinski. No assistance whatsoever comes from either Judge Timothy Evans or Judge Henry Budzinski for Alice Gore’s abuse and trauma at Lakeview Nursing home.

Page 26, on June 3, 2008, Bev Cooper writes a letter to the Chief for the Illinois Dept. Of Public Health complaining that they are wrong to do nothing about the egregious abuse and torture of poor elderly Alice Gore. They had sent photos and numerous documents to back up their claims of abuse at the nursing home.

Page 27, response letter from the Illinois Dept. Of Public Health, which regulates nursing homes. Page 28. The finding was “no violation” by Lakeview Nursing Home.

Page 29, Bev Cooper’s letter to the FBI dated June 16, 2008 in which she details the corruption in the Cook County Guardianship Court and the facts of her mother being abused while a ward of the state of Illinois. The FBI does nothing.

Page 31, Bev Cooper writes to the Chief Judge in Bartow, Florida about the fraud perpetrated by Miriam Solo and siblings in the Irving Faskowitz case. Judge Langford does nothing.

Page 32. On July 22, 2008, Bev Cooper is finally banned from seeing her Mother, due to all the complaints she filed with the ARDC, the Judges and Presiding Judges and Chief Judges and the Nursing Home regulatory agencies with the state of Illinois. Atty Miriam Solo is discharged but replaced by Atty David Martin.

Page 37. On July 14, 2008 Case Supervisor Annette Jungheim resigns but complains about “inappropriate comments” being made by Bev Cooper. No one ever says what the comments are or why they are inappropriate in or out of court.

Page 38. A Motion to Terminate Visitation is also filed by Miriam Solo. The fax date is 8/6/08. The inappropriate comment is that people were trying to “kill” Mrs. Gore. But it would appear by placing her in a contaminated, bio hazard room, and by ignoring her severe weight loss of 48 lbs, and feeding her bad food, inadequate food, etc. it would appear that people were abusing and torturing Alice Gore and that at 95 she could easily end up dead from the abuse and torture that no one ever seemed to correct or care about, from the Presiding Judge of Cook County, to the presiding Judge of Probate in Cook County, to the guardianship judge, Lynn Kowamoto. § 7 seems to indicate that speaking truthfully about a severely abused elderly woman, is somehow “emotional abuse” and requires that Bev Cooper seek therapy. Page 39, second paragraph. Of course, no one thinks that Judge Evans, Budzinski, Kowamoto, or Attorney Miriam Solo or the social workers from Rehab Assist are the real one who need therapy because they do not seem to take action or care when an elderly person is being tortured and abused at a crappy nursing home like Lakeview.

Page 44. Miriam Solo claims that Bev Cooper appears to have “serious problems” because she wants to protect her Mother from abuse. Miriam Solo appears to be asking attorneys Michael Norris and Phillip Tortorich to help her to cover up the abuse and not let Bev Cooper into Lakeview nursing home to check on her mother’s well being.

Page 45. Incredulously, Miriam Solo, as GAL petitions the court to put Kimberly Cooper in place as the Guardian for 95 year old Alice Gore. Miriam Solo has been told about Kim’s long history of mental illness, her frequent psych hospitalizations and the fact that she is psychotic, engages in reckless and dangerous behaviors. Miriam Solo puts Alice Gore in harm’s way with this court filed document.

Page 47, a sister warns the court that Kimberly Cooper is psychotic and should not be appointed the guardian of anyone. Sister Shannon Sandow is concerned that her grandmother is “dying and not receiving proper care.”

Page 48, Beverly Cooper files a Motion to vacate her removal as guardian. She states that the “evidence” used to remove her were unspecified allegations which were not made under oath or supported by any evidence.

I would like to than Bev and Ken Cooper for sharing these documents with us.

 

 

 

 

From FB: Rebecca Fierle, professional guardian arrested for causing death of elderly man

Rebecca Fierle, guardian accused of causing death, arrested in Marion County

MARION COUNTY, Fla. — A professional guardian who was under criminal investigation for the death of a man under her care has been arrested in Marion County Monday night.

The guardian, Rebecca Fierle, is being charged with aggravated abuse of an elderly person and neglect of an elderly person.

Fierle captured headlines across the state after she was accused of issuing a do not resuscitate order for a person she cared for without the court’s permission.

The Price of Protection

Investigations showed Steven Stryker, a 74-year-old man who was under Fierle’s care, did not want a do-not-resuscitate order (DNR) and stated several times that he wanted to live. Despite the elderly man’s request, as well as wishes of the man’s family, Fierle ordered his doctors to “not perform any life prolonging medical procedures,” according to a release from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

FDLE issued a warrant for Fierle’s arrest and on Monday, she was arrested by the Marion County Sheriff’s Office.

PREVIOUS COVERAGE:

Investigators said Fierle also demanded that the elderly man’s feeding tube be capped, which happened on May 9, 2019. Days later, Stryker choked to death while at the hospital.

FDLE says investigation will continue and the case remains active.

From KKD: The Sallas case is a legal travesty of justice

Why won’t the probate court leave this poor couple alone?  They divorced them and looted assets left and right and harassed this couple when they wanted no state interference with their affairs.

From Ken Ditkowsky:

 

A diligent judge should dismiss case 19 CH 13960 sua sponde.

A judge who supervises guardians, and or mortgage foreclosures should sua sponde supervise the parties appearing before him to protect the public and in particular people who are protected by remedial statutes.

 

A serious problem exists in Illinois – it is the human trafficking in the elderly.        As noted in the blogs AAAPG, NASGA, MaryGSykes, Probate Sharks *****problem is national and acute.        As is abundantly clear the ‘intimidation’ and ‘coercion’ exhibited by the miscreants and the corrupt judges who make the ‘elder cleansing’/human trafficking viable and effective has made a mockery out of the 14th Amendment and in particular the first paragraph.

755 ILCS 5/11a – 3 sets the limits as to for whom a guardian can be appointed.     These limits are not only strict and very limited, but access is limited.      NB Such is true if you read the statute as it is written and intended.      The jurisdictional criteria are also procrustean and failure to comply with 755 ILSCS 5/11a – 10 deprives the Court of jurisdiction.        Unfortunately, with the corruption in the Illinois Courts it is the rare instance when the RULE OF LAW and the statute is complied with.    Indeed, in the Mary Sykes case 09 P 4585, there was no summons of summons as required by statute, no prior notice to next of kin (jurisdictional) and no hearing.       All that existed was miscreants appeared before a corrupt judge who signed whatever orders the Guardian ad Litem put before her.      Mary was thus, isolated, segregated and stripped of her dignity, assets, civil rights, human rights and ultimately her life.     Anyone who complained was ‘addressed!’        Lawyers who complained were given the short shift by the Illinois Disciplinary Commission, and individuals rare intimidation.

The Sallas case 07 P         is another wonderful example of Illinois corruption, with a twist.       Dean Sallas, who is quite competent, and an old-time realtor is resisting the corruption, but, he too has run into a wall.      Not only was Dean stripped of his attorney, but, the guardian in concert with the Byline Bank is engaged in a quite inventive fraud.

The Illinois legislature is fantastic in providing legislation designed to protect the public.    755 ILCS 5/11a ==1 et seq.   is well designed to protect the citizen from abuse not only from the system, but from outsiders who prey on the elderly.      Under Illinois law reports by the guardian appointed are regular and mandatory supervised by the appointing judge who is supposed to be aided by a Guardian ad Litem.    Illinois’ law as to fiduciaries of strict and direct.      A guardian is held to an objective standard.      A guardian who is not diligent or does not meet the standard of fidelity and integrity demanded by the Court and the Statute pays the penalty from his own pocket.      The standard is not only objective but measured by the clear light of hindsight.    EXCEPT when corruption raises its ugly head.

The Byline Bank vs. Sallas 19 CH 13960 (related to 07 P 6360 Amelia Sallas) is example.         Under quite suspicious circumstances Amelia Sallas was adjudicated an incompetent.      Under suspicious circumstances, Dean Sallas was provided the short end of the stick, deprived of his legal counsel and systematically deprived of his marriage rights (including property and consortium rights).     In essence, Dean Sallas’ marriage to Amelia interfered with the agenda of the ‘human traffickers’ and he received a DE FACTO divorce (without his consent, his wife’s attornment, or the Rule of law).

He foregoing extra judicial events however provided little progress toward enriching the miscreants thus more inventive objectives had to be employed.       To eliminate the marital equity in the marital homestead (including homestead rights, etc.) the guardian had to be more inventive that most.     The half a century marriage had to be VOIDED!         (As there is no legal method for involuntary dissolution of marriage – the judge reins over a de facto divorce segregating not only the person but the finances of the couple and preventing any right of consortium to exist)

Thus, the guardian used his position to induce the refinancing of the marital home.      Homestead rights and marital rights being recognized in Illinois meant that either the Court approve a refinancing agreement, or a little trickery be employed.   (We usually refer to this conduct as fraud).      Both the incompetent and her husband had to sign mortgage documents.         Apparently this feat was accomplished.      The guardian assured the ‘couple’ that the current payment method would be continued and all that would happen would be a refinancing of the existing loan.      The guardian DID NOT (it is believed and therefore alleged) inform either Mr. or Mrs. Salas of a statute that prohibited the transaction to wit:

 

    (755 ILCS 5/11a-22) (from Ch. 110 1/2, par. 11a-22)
    Sec. 11a-22. Trade and contracts with a person with a disability.
    (a) Anyone who by trading with, bartering, gaming or any other device, wrongfully possesses himself of any property of a person known to be a person with a disability commits a Class A misdemeanor.
    (b) Every note, bill, bond or other contract by any person for whom a plenary guardian has been appointed or who is adjudged to be unable to so contract is void as against that person and his estate, but a person making a contract with the person so adjudged is bound thereby.
(Source: P.A. 99-143, eff. 7-27-15.)

 

The foreclosure is based upon the ‘contract’ signed in direct violation of section a, and foreclosure proceeding ignores section b.       It should be noted that under law (and especially Chancery procedure and Law) the foreclosure has two serious defects, to wit:

a)     Unclean hands

b)     Mrs. Sallas pursuant to 755 ILCS 5/11a -22b cannot be sued – ergo, as she is a NECESSARY PARTY it is clear that the foreclosure suit must be dismissed – a complete adjudication is impossible.       The Byline Bank knew or should have known that it was entering into a prohibited transaction.    The guardian of Ms. Sallas similarly knows or should know that a Class A misdemeanor has been committed and his not raising the same is a serious breach of his fiduciary relationship.   It is also evidence of his culpability and collusion.

 

The guardian has exposed himself.        He has attempted to coerce Dean Sallas into accepting a settlement – A reverse mortgage that Dean reports will have a maximum cash flow of $20,000.    This plan was presented in the probate court.   Law Center LLC 79 W. Monroe has estimated the market value of the wrongfully foreclosed dwelling at $425,000.00.     The balance due on the wrongful mortgage is approximately $150,000.00

The foregoing is redundant.      I’ve mentioned it before; however, what I’ve not stated before is the fact that the CIRCUIT COURT JUDGES in both the Foreclosure and the Probate Court are not appointed to the bench because of their good looks.      Each judge took an oath to uphold the law.

Whether the lawyers represent their clients properly or not – or are competent or not the JUDGES’ oath is to uphold the law.    The words:

 

    (755 ILCS 5/11a-22) (from Ch. 110 1/2, par. 11a-22)
    Sec. 11a-22. Trade and contracts with a person with a disability.
    (a) Anyone who by trading with, bartering, gaming or any other device, wrongfully possesses himself of any property of a person known to be a person with a disability commits a Class A misdemeanor.
    (b) Every note, bill, bond or other contract by any person for whom a plenary guardian has been appointed or who is adjudged to be unable to so contract is void as against that person and his estate, but a person making a contract with the person so adjudged is bound thereby.
(Source: P.A. 99-143, eff. 7-27-15.)

 

Are in no need of interpretation – they are clear.       Once Mrs. Sallas was adjudicated an incompetent she could not directly or indirectly enter a CONTRACT.      Renewal, extension etc. are all contracts and all are prohibited.      This is not to say that the guardian = with application and approval of the Court – could not enter into a contract affecting the same subject matter – BUT Mrs. Sallas’ participation was prohibited for two reasons, to wit:

c)      It is a crime, and

d)     If she has the capacity to enter into the contract then the guardianship is highly suspect!       Indeed, it is an acknowledgment that the guardianship proceeding is  ultra vires and probably wrongful nunc pro tunc.

are clear and concise – and very understandable.

 

ERGO -THERE IS NO EXCUSE for the words not being honored and the foreclosure judge not sua sponte dismissing with prejudice the mortgage foreclosure lawsuit 19 CH 13960.        There  is further no just cause for the Judge in the guardianship  cause sua sponte determining if the guardian has violated his oath of office and committed a criminal contempt.

 

The Judge in not recognizing the possible criminal activity of the guardian and the bank is in breach of his/her fiduciary duty.       Such is a serious corruption – IF IN FACT SUCH IS THE FACT.

 

Pursuant to my ABA Rule 8.3 and my statutory duty pursuant to 18 USCA 4.    This information is forwarded to Law Enforcement and appropriate authorities’
