In furtherance of the EB podcast: Why is the Catholic Church obtaining land via probate (guardianship and decedent’s estates)

If anyone has any information on what this is going on, please contact me, or 773.255.7608. I would love to hear about it.

I just don’t understand how the Catholic Church can sue 2 elderly Christian ladies to take farmland from them. Who does this? Why is this happening?

Here is one such case going on now in Abingdon, Illinois, Knox County Courthouse, Judge Curtis Lane, who threatened the defendants, two elderly women with jail THREE TIMES, and was not recused, and the transcripts do not show any good reason why.

Here is the Motion to Recuse the Judge for Cause because he threatened two elderly women with jail in the courtroom:

Here is the Answer to the Second Amended Complaint:

Motion to Dismiss Second Amended Complaint

Here is the Motion to Substitute Judge Curtis Lane for Cause for yelling at the elderly Williamson sisters he will send them to jail. Can anyone read the transcript and tell me for what? It is not at all clear from the transcript. I understand Judge Curtis Lane in Knox county is appointed, not elected, so that might explain it.

Here are the exhibits to the Motion to Substitute Judge Lane for Cause

Now if anyone can tell me why 1) Judge Lane keeps on yelling at the Williamsons and he’s always harsh and demanding on them, but he treats attorneys Robertson and Mangeri like landed princely gentry and 2) why is the Catholic Church suing the Williamsons over a farm and timeberland dispute. The Williamsons want to keep the land as it is. If the Catholic Church gets ahold of it, they will likely log it and remove thousands of beautiful old trees. I do not understand this case, but people are complaining to me about it.

  1. Hi Joanne, Tell the people who care they have to either: 1. get it on their local tv or 2. all show up in court wearing the same color t-shirt to show support. A person in No. Cal. was saved the first way.

    A lady in Oakland was saved the second way, members of her church showed up and shamed the judge into releasing her. Judy

    • great ideas, but in this case the jury showed up wearing camouflage outfits to show support for the Galesburg Rifle Club and OSF tshirts to show support for the Catholic church. I hope you are doing well

  2. This same judge was recently assigned to a guardianship case pertaining to my children and because he didn’t like my answer of i wasnt ready to disclose who will represent me as counsel because I haven’t hired anyone held me in direct criminal contempt and has ordered I serve jail time. This judge is by far the WORST judge Ive ever come across. The power of being a judge has definitely gone to his head.

  3. I now fear for the well being of my children that I’m being put on trial to fight to keep when I’ve done nothing wrong.
