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.

Estate involvement:

1) Estate of Marjorie Ivy, a long time girl friend of brother Mordecai Faskowitz

On April 11, 2014, Chris Ivy, the nephew of Marjorie Ivy, files a Petition to become the Independent Administrator of his deceased sister Marjorie Ivy. Page 1

According to a October 11, 2013 article in the Chicago Tribune, Mordecai Faskowitz shared an apartment with 70 year old Marjorie Ivy, page 12. The Cook County medical examiner’s office determined that Marjorie Ivy died from multiple stab wounds and cuts in a homicide. Mordechai Faskowitz was held without bail on a murder charge.

Marjorie Ivy had been dead for days, because a man who had keys to the building discovered her body because he had not seen her for days and the apartment was emitting a foul odor. Page 12.

Mordecai F. Admitted to the crime but had to be tazed by police so they could arrest him. Page 13. A friend said of Ivy, that she was a very nice person “who was passionate about animal rights.”

The value of Marjorie’s estate in the Petition was listed as $850,000 by the nephew Chris Ivy.

On page 3, a listing of Marjorie’s assets shows a Vanguard IRA, a Drefus Crop investment account and a New York Life Insurance policy, all naming Moredecai Faskowitz as Beneficiary and/or his trust, Mordechai Faskowitz Supplemental Care Trust. Page 2, ¶ d indicates that it was Razel Faskowitz who created the MFSC Trust naming Miriam Greenfield as Trustee in 2006.

Page 4 shows that Mordecai was found Not Guilty by Reason of Insanity. Para. 10 relates that Marjorie died of more than 40 stab wounds.

Page 2 shows that the Estate of Marjorie Ivy attempted to reclaim all assets left to Mordecai on under the Illinois Slayer Statute which provides that “A person who intentionally and unjustifiably causes the death of another shall not receive any property, benefit or other interest by reason of the death…in any capacity.” Para 11.

Pages 9 to 11 shows that Marjorie Ivy has some 28 nieces and nephews with an interest in her Estate.
Miriam Solo then files an Affidavit with the Estate of Marjorie Ivy in which she explains: 1) she is the younger sister of Mordecai (page 15). That she met with Mordecai and Marjorie (Gayle) Ivy in June 2016 for Marjorie to “provide for each other” and “Gayle’s specific desire to add to the trust, of which I was the trustee.” ¶ 6.

Question: how is it that Marjorie dies October 13, 2013, Mordechai is put in jail, but then she and Mordechai are meeting with Miriam Solo in June of 2016 to move Marjorie’s assets into Mordechai’s estate upon her death? Why is Miriam Solo helping with this when Mordechai is her brother and she is the trustee of his “Supplemental Needs Trust”?  When Mordechai dies, his Estate flows into a Supplemental Needs Trust (again, Miriam Solo is the Trustee) (see below), but why would Marjorie Ivy want to leave her Estate to Avrohom Soloveichik whom she is not related to, upon Mordechai’s passing?

The Affidavit continues on with ¶ ¶ 8 to 33 detailing Mordecahi’s alleged schizophrenic episodes which led up to Marjorie’s death caused by over 40 stab wounds from Mordechai. The real question is, why was Miriam Solo acutely aware of Mordechai’s deteriorating mental health, but she did not make certain that he had his meds and was taking them. She was the only sibling living in Chicago at the time, and she had his POA and he was at her house sometimes during August to September 2013 and Miriam Solo knew his mental condition was extremely poor at that time, yet she did nothing about it.

The probate court, after briefing and hearing, the court then issues an Order that the Petition to disqualify Faskowitz under the Slayer Statute is denied. Page 28. This was based upon a Petition for Summary Judgment filed by Miriam Greenfield on December 7, 2017, page 53 to 63. Miriam Greenfield signed as “agent pursuant to the power of attorney for Mordechai Faskowitz”, p. 36.  How did Miriam Solo get this Power of Attorney when Mordechai has been incompetent for years and subject to shcizophrenic and dangerous episodes for most of his life?

A dispute ensues over Mordecahi being able to answer Interrogatory questions prior to hearing because he is institutionalized. Pages 29 to 34.

Page 37 show the beneficiary change request to Moredecai Faskowitz and a secondary beneficiary, Adrienne Russ, both listed as friends. This was done June 23, 2010 and not in June 2016

An Interpleader action was also filed over the the New York Life policy. Page 39.

It is not known from the court records if Mordecai’s deposition was ever taken.

It does not appear in either the court records or in the decision on Appeal, if anyone noticed that the standard to convict for an intentional homocide is “beyond a reasonable doubt’ in criminal court, but there is a much lesser standard of “more probable than not” to disinherit a person in Probate court.

By the time the Interpleader is filed, there are now 45 nieces and nephews claiming an interest in this estate. Pages 41 to 44.

The decision was based upon a Summary Judgment Motion which had argued that Res Judicata applied to the finding of NGRI, and therefore Mordecai was barred from inheriting from his stabbing victim Marjorie.

The Appellate court ruled at ¶ 30 however: A Finding of NGRI on a Charge of First Degree Murder Does Not Create an Irrebuttable Presumption Under the Slayer Statute.

The issue for Marjorie Ivy, stabbed to death over 40 times by Mordecai, was taken up on Appeal and the Illinois Appellate court ruled that the trial court’s decision that someone found “not guilty by reason of insanity” is not irrefutably covered under the Slayer Statute. They find that the use of Summary Judgment was inappropriate for the issues at hand, that is whether the killing was intentional. The court noted that admissions spoken to various doctors during examination could not be excepted from the hearsay rule and were not considered. No deposition was ever taken of Mordecai and since he died on May 15, 2019 (page 49), it is doubtful that there is any possibility of preventing his estate, his Trust, operated now by Miriam Solo, to go to the rightful heirs or the nieces and nephews of Marjorie Gayle Ivy.
No new pleadings have been filed as of that decision.  A status is set for Jan. 14, 2019.

The Appellate Court decision is located at:
https://courts.illinois.gov/Opinions/AppellateCourt/2019/1stDistrict/1181691.pdf

Note “Miriam F. Solo” is listed as an attorney on appeal, presumably for brother Mordechai Faskowitz. ¶ 15, “Respondent, through his agent” filed an answer to the Petitions to disinherit him under the Slayer Statute. Meaning Miriam Solo was the agent for Mordechai, but where is her Power of Attorney, when was it executed and how did she know he was in his right mind when it was executed. Or, is it a durable power of attorney that would survive Mordechai’s insanity and incompetence? In any case, Mordechai Faskowitz had been confined to the Elgin Mental Health Hospital since his criminal trial, and perhaps before that up until his death in May of 2019.

More important, the will Miriam Solo filed as Executor was prepared just days before the death of brother Mordecai and it no doubt had to be Executed and witnessed at the Elgin State Mental Hospital. Was Mordechai even competent at that time, not insane, not mentally disabled? After all these facts, that would be quite a stretch to say Mordechai was even competent to have a will. And what about the POA which was used to file all the documents and pleadings in this case? How could a POA be valid when Mordechai was regularly seeing demons and hearing voices? Was it a durable POA granted years earlier when Mordechai was more mentally stable?

And while Marjorie Ivy’s estate is purported to go to the Special Needs Trust for Mordechai Faskowitz, his will at page 45 states that his Estate will go to the Special Needs Trust for Avorihim Soloveichik, another disabled individual. In these special needs trusts, however, the beneficiaries are incapacitated or incompetent, so who is overseeing the management of these funds?

More important, it would appear that Miriam Soloveichik back in 1994 was appointed the Guardian of Avohom Soloveichik, 94 P 10177. Despite the fact she was legally required to file an annual report on the ward, as well as an accounting if the ward held any personal property, Miriam Solo has filed just two annual reports on the ward, so how is then that Miriam Solo is qualified in any manner to manage a trust with $850,000 in it for Avrohom Soloveichik, a disabled person. (https://drive.google.com/open?id=1W-CwP1zSqtSZXGDIVA88xJHy8ZKL4WOo)

2) Estate of Mordechai Faskowitz

Right before the Appellate court decision of June 26, 2019 was handed down, Mordechai Faskowitz dies on May 15, 2019, page 49, and younger sister Miriam Solo Greenfield Petitions to become his Executor.

While all along during the Probate proceedings for Marjorie Ivy in which Miriam Solo was arguing on behalf of Mordechai Faskowitz that Mordechai was hopelessly insane, seeing and hearing demons, stabbing them and skipping his meds, we find that Mordechai Faskowitz, who never gave a deposition or answered critical Interrogatories, is now able to execute a will and is suddenly of “sound mind and memory”. Page 45.

Question, which is it? Was Mordecai hopelessly schizophrenic, seeing demons, stabbing at demons, or is he of “sound mind and memory.” Who is manipulating his pleadings in court?

On page 45, Miriam Solo Greenfield is appointed Executor of his Will and his entire inheritance is amazingly provided to Avrohom Soloveichik Supplemental Needs Trust, even though Mordechai has numerous nieces and nephews and Avrohom has been, for years, placed in an institution in New York as a disabled adult.

The witnesses are illegible, and not typed into this will but appear to be Miriam Greenfield at her address 6538 N Sacramento, and an attorney friend of hers, Jonathan Shimberg, 9003 Lincolnwood Dr, Evanston, IL 60203, Page 46.

NOTE: this will, likely created by Miriam Solo, is not notarized. The names of the witnesses are not typed out. No phone numbers are emails are provided for the witnesses.

Listed as heirs on Page 51 are Avrohom Soloveichik Suppplemental Needs Trust with Miriam Soloveichik as Trustee (now listed as M. Greenfield, Trustee), together with brother Moshe Faskowitz, and sisters Michele Triester and Brandy Tuchman. On page 52 it also lists Miriam Solo Greenfield. Avrohom Soloveichik is Miriam’s eldest special needs disabled son by her first marriage.

Further provided in this estate is an Affidavit of Heirship noting that Chaim Faskowitz (DOD Aug. 1997) and Razel (Rose) Jofen (DOD Dec. 2018) are the parents of the decedent Mordechai Faskowitz. Page 47.

In this Affidavit Chaim and Razel or Rose Faskowitz had 5 children: Moshe, Mordechai, Miriam, Michele and Brandy.

2) Estate of Irving (Isaac) Faskowitz (Fisk) and Sofia in Florida

On April 8, 1999, Sofia (Fisk) Faskowitz died leaving her entire estate to her husband, Irving Fisk.Page 100 and 98.

On June 22, 1999, Irving (Isaac) (Fisk) Faskowitz died, but his will only name his wife who had predeceased him. Pages 101 and 96.

Neither of the wills executed by Sofia and Irving Fisk named any other beneficiaries other than themselves.

A probate proceeding, PC 99-307 was opened in Florida and Rose Faskowitz, mother of Miriam Faskowitz Soloveichik Greenfield, promptly filed an Affidavit of Heirship (page 65) claiming that her husband’s name was Chaim, and that he was a cousin and uncle of the decedent, Irving Faskowitz. ¶ 15. This was because the decedent’s father was Isaac Faskowitz, and Isaac’s father was Mordecai Faskowitz. Mordecai had another Son Moshe. Son Moshe married the daughter of Mordecai, or in other words, Daughter Miriam supposedly married her uncle Moshe. They had four children: Chaim, Alter Mordecai, Breina and Beila. Only Chaim had children. Chaim married the Affiant, Rose Faskowitz, and they had four children: Moshe, Miriam, Brandy and Michel. ¶ 10.

During World War II, Chaim’s entire family was in Poltusk, Poland.

The Affiant, Rose (Razel) Faskowitz, then claims the rest of the family, other than her and Chaim, perished in a Nazi concentration camp during World War II.

However, it must be noted that while ¶ 10 of the Affidavit of Rose Faskowitz lists four children (Moshe, Miriam, Brandy and Michel); note that in the Estate of Mordechai Faskowitz, Rose suddently has a 5th child–Mordecai.

On page 50-51, the Affidavit of heirship for Mordechai’s Estate clearly shows 4 siblings: Moshe, Brandy and Miriam. Apparently on January 5, 2001 Rose (Razel) Faskowitz forgot she had a 5th child.

We know that Miriam Greenfield Solo was involved in this because she filed a Consent and Waiver and acknowledged a copy of the Petition to Determine Beneficiaries and waived notice to hearing on the Petition to Determine Beneficiaries. (Page 65). She also received a copy of the Fla. ATG Petition to Set Aside Finding of Beneficiaries.  Page 82.  While brother Mordechai was remembered when he hacked his girlfriend Marjorie Gayle Ivy to death, she forgot he had to be included in this estate of alleged Uncle/Cousin Isaac Faskowitz.

Nonetheless, the Affidavit of Heirship filed by Rose (Razel) Faskowitz turns out to be utter nonsense.

On August 2, 2001, the Attorney General of Florida investigated the Probate Case of Irving (Isaac) (Fisk) Faskowitz and concluded that none of the children of Rose Faskowitz were in fact related to Irving Faskowitz, the decedent. While the Affidavit of Rose Faskowitz tells a long tale of nieces marrying their uncles (the family tree that does not branch) and harrowing escapes from Nazi occupied Europe to the US, none of that is apparently true.

From ¶ 8 of the ATG letter:

The information provided by the discovery of the decedent’s birth certificate is inconsistent with the Affidavits in support of the Petition to Determine Beneficiaries as follows:

a) the decedent’s name at birth was Isaac Faskowitz, not Irving Faskowitz, as alleged by affiants.
b) the decedent was born in the Borough of Manhattan, City of New York, State of New York; not Poland as alleged.
c) The decedent’s parents were Harry and Anne Faskowitz, not Isaac Faskowitz, as alleged.
d) The decedent did not, nor did his parents, immigrate to the United States from Poland. The decedent’s parents immigrated from Russia, and the decedent himself was born in this country. ¶ 8, p.81 ¶

It should also be noted that Isaac Faskowitz was married to Sofia Faskowitz and her death certificate says she was born in Puerto Rico and therefore was an US citizen. Nothing was said of her in the Affidavit. Most likely decedent met his wife in the large Puerto Rican community when he was young in Manhattan. The decedent was an US citizen born in New York City.

Despite the fact that the ATG of Florida researched the probate estate and found the heirs to be a fraud, no action was taken by the Florida Probate Court and on December 2006, the Estate was finally distributed with a total of $1,592,456 for 4 beneficiaries, or $398,114. Not bad for finding a similar name and cooking up affidavits.

On page 89, An agreed order was entered determining the beneficiaries to be Miriam Greenfield, Brandy Tuchman, Michel Triester and Moshe Faskowitz. No mention of brother Mordechai.

On page 91, it appears that Moshe Faskowitz, Rose Faskowitz and Dr. Jean Jofen were already to testify there were 4 children of fake Uncle/Cousin Mr. Isaac Faskowitz and not 5.

On page 93 is the Proof of service of final accounting and petition for discharge. Again, no mention of a 5th sibling in the Faskowitz sibling group. Mordechai is missing his hundreds of thousands of dollars. And Miriam Solo Soloveichik Faskowitz Greenfield is part of it.

3. Estate of Ralla Klepak

On May 3, 2019, Miriam Solo Greenfield files a Petition to become the Executor of her friend, Ralla Klepak, who passed on April 25, 2019. Page 118.

She lists the value of Ralla’s personal property at $1 million and her real estate at 2046 W. Addison Ave, Chicago for $250,000, despite the fact that Ralla’s office building, which she owns, is worth easily over one million dollars. In addition she owns a home on Addison Ave and a home in St. Petersburg, Florida.

The decedent, Ralla Klepak, has told many people that she adopted a Mexican son, however no “son” is mentioned in her will at Page 102. A Jorge Bautista at 5158 N Ashland is listed in the will, but he is not mentioned as a son. According to Instantcheckmate.com there is a person named Jorge Bautista at 5156 N Ashland and an address in Tampa, Florida. However he is 71 years old and clearly not a “son” which Ralla met and adopted at age 10 some decades back.

The bulk of the Estate is given to Miriam Solo. All the contents of Ralla’s home. Third ¶ p. 103. Jorge Bautista $500,000. Miriam Solo is given Ralla’s Puerta Del Sol South Apartment in St. Petersburg, Florida. P.105, FOURTEENTH ¶ , the rest and residue of her estate to the Ralla Klepak Trust for the Performing Arts, and Miriam Solo is to get $75,000 per year for managing the trust. Page 109, Article4 (sic). Large amounts are given to various charities on p.110. $100,000 to Victory Gardens Theater, $100,000 to Steppenwolf Theater, $100,000 to Northlight Theater, etc. Page 110

The Will appears to have been quickly drafted with tons of typos.

A typical will has the Testator initial every page of the will. No pages are initialed in this Will.

The will has an attestation clause by witnesses, but it is not notarized, as a will typically is notarized.

Sharran Greenburg is a witness, and mentioned in the will.

The will is executed 2 months before she died. Just like some others…..

4. Guardianship of Alice Gore

Cooper’s Corner show.

here is a video with a lot of detail about MS:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mG8FZhBJGXI

Bev Cooper (the host of the show) is the daughter of 99 year old Alice Gore.
Miriam Solo (aka Soloveichik, Greenfield, Fisk, Faskowicz), was the Guardian ad Litem for Alice Gore.

11:18 – MS brought false charges against Bev Cooper and obtained a false Order of Protection
Bev Cooper had to pay to see her own mother at Warren Barr Pavillion, a nursing home 20 miles from Bev Cooper’s home. Bev Cooper loved to take care of her mother and told Miriam Solo she wanted to take her mom home and take care of mom — for free.

12:19 – Nursing home is owned by a cousin of MS

13:10 $1.5 million is billed by attorneys in fees during 3 years of guardianship

13:15 – Alice Gore loves to eat, but against her will a GI tube is inserted so she can never eat again.

14:40 – MS chooses a mentally ill granddaughter, with multiple psych hospitalizations to become the guardian of Alice Gore, over the objections and petitions of Bev Cooper to become the guardian of her own mother

15:50 – Bev Cooper cannot visit her own mother

16:08 – Bev Cooper states than MS is an animal, inhumane, and evil

In conclusion

There are now two wills (Klepak, Mordechai, Ivy) which all have the following similarities:
1) not notarized, witness signatures have no typed or printed names next to them so their names are easily read and known to others.
2) the decedent dies days or weeks after the will is allegedly executed (Mordechai, Klepak)
3) disabled individuals are used to move substantial amounts of money via a Trust mechanism, which is essentially a private device with no court oversight and little accountability, especially where the beneficiary is mentally deficient or incompetent. Who is looking out for this disabled person? Where is the accountability and oversight when the Beneficiary is disabled or mentally infirm himself?

From Ken Ditkowsky–the Barbara Stone case is a horror show–demand her immediate release today

Barbara is a true heroine and should be reinstated with honors as an attorney in both New York and Florida.

She showed what the system was–money grubbing, despicable and onerous.

From Ken Ditkowsky:

The Barbara Stone case is representative of the ELDER CLEANSING/HUMAN TRAFFICKING SCANDAL and illustrative of the corruption and total disregard for America’s core values that has become an epidemic amongst our ‘ruling class!    The elite are so used to ignoring us – the great unwashed – that the South Florida POLITICAL ELITE fresh from victories over the public in the condominium scandal feel empowered to run roughshot over any who oppose their dictates.
Like all scandals the ‘power players’ all have ‘warts’ and some of the good guys do and say things that are bad strategy, bad form, and downright stupid.     The Political elite HAVING THE UNDYING LOYALTY of their knee jerk supporters and the media thus frame the aggreived in the worst possible light.   So obnoxious and amoral are the elites that they and their supporters have no compunction and no conscience  – they can even rationalize the killing for profit of 12 elderly residents of the Hollywood Hills nursing home and blame Governor Scott for the carnage.   The fact that that so as to rob Medicare of a few dollars these miscreants nursing home operators could not transport (or call 911 for the town of Hollywood Florida to transport) the helpless elderly a few yards across the street to safety.   The fact was that transporting the victims across the street to a safe environment would have cost the operators of the nursing home a few dollars and THEY HAD TO WEIGH the safety of their human commodities over the dollar loss – the dollar loss won!   12 people died.
We have the very same situation in the guardianship of Helen Stone and the persecution of Barbara Stone.      We just do not approve of overt discourtesy toward our revered institutions, its servants, or law enforcement.   We believe we are a NATION OF LAWS and even though every one else is a ******, we have to uphold a STANDARD.   Dissenting  – does not mean descending into immaturity and they very type of conduct that is exhibited by the corrupt Political elite.    We, the great unwashed are better than that!
Now let’s look at the facts.   Helen Stone, an elderly human commodity, became an object of profit for a corrupt guardian and jurist who were actively pursing ELDERLY HUMAN TRAFFICKING.     She  (Barbara Stone)  interrupted the isolation and dehumanization process of her mother and did so openly and notoriously.   As has been disclosed on numerous blogs once a human trafficking victim falls under the control of the ELDER CLEANSERS that individual has to be stabilized.   To obtain maximum HEALTH CARE DOLLARS and the greatest Medicare payment the most efficient warehousing technique is the goal.  Opioids are routinely employed to induce a ‘zombie’ effect, but while these chemicals are performing their function i is necessary to address nutrition and delivery of services.    
Routinely therefore the opioid serviced individual is fitted with a feeding tube and a Cather so that bodily functions do not require too much human attention.    Thus, nutrition and excretion require minimum costs are substantially reduced and other services also reduced to their lowest common denominator.   For instance, physical therapy does not require a technician –  wheeling the elderly person into the hallway meets the criteria and a hours PT can be billed to Medicare at full rates.  The cost to the facility is nominal.  
Barbara Stone, interrupted the orientation of her mother.   She without warning and permission removed her mother from the feeding tube routine and demonstrated the falsity of the medical authorizations for the same.  She took her mother out to a restaurant and enjoyed a meal with her.   The entire orientation process approved by the Court was demonstrated to be FRAUDULENT and by her action Barbara Stone jeopardized the economic prospects of the Judge, the guardian and other members of the Political elite.     The entire guardianship for profit scenario was placed in jeopardy!
This aforesaid act by Barbara Stone was so reprehensible that the Judge was duty bound to extract the most harsh penalties against Stone and make an example of her so that such travesties would not occur in the future.    Ms. Stone resisted and worse yet formed alliances with the some of the most radical individuals – these individuals lost all sense of proportion – some demanded HONEST INVESTIGATIONS and one of said individuals exposed on her blog (MaryGSykes) judicial corruption.
As I personally am one of the miscreants who objects to the HUMAN TRAFFICKING in the Elderly by those who prosecute Barbara Stone and other who object, Governor Scott, President Trump I as a member of the great unwashed demand an HONEST INVESTIGATION and the restoration of the Equal Protect of the Law to all citizens including the elderly and the disabled.
From Joanne:
It turns out there is absolutely no evidence, no clinical study that a feeding tube and catheter is better than feeding a patient who so desires, any food they want. (see prior blog post on this).  But it is routine in nursing homes to plunk down a tray and pick it up 15 minutes later.  Joy Ketelhut, in observing the feeding of her mother at Warren Barr Nursing Facility in downtown Chicago, noted one day she was late to feed her mother.  So she asked one of the nurses there about her mother’s meal and why wasn’t she being fed?  The answer, a huge lie, “oh she ate earlier”–but then she found her meal on the cart, untouched with her name on it.
Every years thousands of elders in nursing homes are admitted to hospitals due to malnourishment and dehydration, my nursing friends tell me.  Sometimes it’s on purpose because the hospital needs to fill beds.  If a nurse complains or files a complaint, they are fired on the spot and blackballed.  No one ever investigates the malnourishment and dehydration of an elder in a nursing home.
Similarly, I am told they often die.  Funeral directors must fill out a “condition of the body” report.  These reports are filed and no one does anything with them, I am told by funeral directors.
No one cares about the elderly and disabled, if it weren’t for the blogs.
The sad part is, the ARDC is fighting this blog.  See my prior post where they claim this blog is a lie, I make judges and attorneys cry when I call them on the carpet for perfidy and mendacity in the probate courtroom.
This is not my job.  I’d love to return to engineering and patents and all that fun stuff, but I will not and cannot when there are seniors and disableds at risk and attorneys at the ARDC like Larkin, Opryszek and Smart patently allow our elders and the disableds to be abused.
Barbara Stone is a heroine. She showed how her mother did not need a feeding tube.
She took her mom out for shopping and a meal and the two were happy.
But this interfered with the state’s plan to medicate, isolate and then terminate her for her money.  Go look at the Stone dockets I recently posted. It’s all about the money.  All the money items are sealed.  Reported the brother stole some $600k from Mom, and I see that’s not resolved either, tho it was years ago.
Barbara Stone must be immediately released and Roy Lustig and the crooked judges who put her there should be disbarred and removed from office.
Joanne

Demand Lawyer Activist Barbara Stone be released and Judges Genden, Bailey and Labarga and Atty Roy Lustig be disbarred.

From ECG and Stone on Stone, this is what they had to say about the Barbara Stone Case:

STONE
ON STONE
REPORTING FROM
SOUTH OF THE BORDER
<http://82.221.129.208/.zl0.html>

I have many times said the U.S. prisons are packed with innocents. Here’s proof.

○ When a real estate attorney discovered her mom was rapidly deteriorating due to neglect at a nursing home, she took her mom out for a meal at Denny’s (where she was arrested) because a prior court order stated her mom HAD TO stay in the nursing home.

Barbara’s saga began in 2013, when, alarmed at the condition of her mother in a facility into which she had been remanded by her court-appointed guardian, Jacqueline Hertz, Barbara took Helen out of the facility and to lunch at a nearby Denny’s. Barbara was then arrested and charged with a multitude of crimes, including custody interference, elder abuse and kidnapping.

Barbara, who was a real estate attorney in New York, had no prior criminal history before she took her Mom to lunch and has accumulated over 500 in-jail days since the “Denny’s debacle.”

SO GET THIS: They let crack heads, car thieves and murdering illegals run amok, and jail a real estate attorney for taking her mom to Denny’s just because a court said she had to stay in a particular nursing home and never leave.

I have said numerous times here that a majority of the people in America’s prisons are highly productive law abiding people that are in there for the sole purpose of feeding work into the prison labor system. They don’t want anyone who is actually worthy of jail in jail because that dilutes down the quality of the prison labor force. So the cities are cesspools and illegals run amok, getting acquitted after they shoot and kill people on a pier or wherever else.

HERE IS
THE PUNCH LINE
THAT PROVES
WHAT I SAID ABOVE IS TRUE:

This woman has gone on to blog against nursing home abuses, and is part of a group of bloggers that are trying to change the corrupt situation of abuse in nursing homes, AND SHE WAS TOLD SHE’D WALK COMPLETELY FREE RATHER THAN FACE THREE ADDITIONAL YEARS IN PRISON IF SHE GAVE UP THE NAMES OF THE OTHER BLOGGERS, SO THEY COULD BE JAILED FOR ONLY TRYING TO STOP THE CORRUPTION IN THE NURSING HOMES BY POSTING ABOUT IT TO THE INTERNET

Speaking from Florida, Dr. Sam Sugar, who is the head of Americans Against Abusive Probate Guardianships, a grassroots advocacy group, had this to say about the recent actions in Barbara’s case:

○ The reports that a defendant in a criminal pleading was offered a reduction in sentence in return for unmasking the identities of Americans exercising their First Amendment Rights online with comments about abusive guardianship courts are a chilling reminder that the Gestapo tactics of Nazi Germany have found a new home in Miami Dade courts – the real secret society!

HERE IS
SPECIFICALLY
WHAT THIS WOMAN WAS BLOGGING AGAINST:

The nursing homes have become an industry which seizes the assets of the people who are put in them, (houses and whatever else). They then liquidate those assets, and price their care at astronomically high levels, until the total value of the assets is used up. Once they are used up, they then cause the death of the people they are supposed to care for.

Her mom’s assets ran out, and they were trying to kill her with neglect. So she took her mom to eat elsewhere, and because the court ordered that the nursing home now owned her mom, the police went to Denny’s and threw her in prison. She has now lost everything, including her career as a real estate attorney.

And that, dear folks, is precisely why America has the world’s highest prison population, all the while the real thugs continue to rape rob and murder unabated. They’ll throw a real estate attorney in jail for protecting her mom, and let an illegal who shot and killed a woman on a San Francisco pier be totally acquitted and walk free. There is no question that the real motiviation for this is to feed high quality people into a prison labor system, which happens to be the largest prison labor system in the world. THAT IS EXACTLY HOW THEY GET THE PRECISION GUIDED BOMBS, DRONES, AND CRUISE MISSILES MADE BY QUALIFIED PEOPLE. Those are mostly made by a prison work force. That’s f^**ed UP.

If you doubt this, check this out from Counterpunch <https://www.counterpunch.org/2013/09/05/war-profiteers-slavery-and-the-hypocrisy-of-imperialism>

Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, General Dynamics, Boeing, and BAE Systems all use prison labor to manufacture military equipment. Prisoners are often forced to labor under sweatshop style conditions, and when they are paid they often receive meager wages like 23 cents an hour.

Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, General Dynamics and others ONLY MAKE HIGH TECH WEAPONRY. This quote took approximately 7 seconds to find at Counterpunch <https://www.counterpunch.org/2013/09/05/war-profiteers-slavery-and-the-hypocrisy-of-imperialism>

Another even more damning report on the topic is HERE-<https://www.alternet.org/story/150777/defense_contractors_using_prison_labor_to_build_high-tech_weapons_systems> and this issue has been a pet peeve of mine for DECADES.

They are jailing high quality people on the most spurious of charges and using them to manufacture high tech weapons. Maybe that’s why all the software companies had to hire people from India – too many of America’s white male engineers were stuffing the prison labor system on horse shit charges usually related to the family court system. That way, the people who are seeking to destroy the United States can wipe out families and the best of people in ONE WHACK – at the same time they get the weapons built which they intend to destroy much of the rest of the world with. And they get that done via virtually free skilled labor. A WIN WIN WIN for disgusting low life tyranny.

Look folks, if they are jailing bloggers for uncovering corruption in nursing homes, THE SKY IS THE LIMIT. see this at Activist Post. <https://www.activistpost.com/2018/01/woman-refuses-give-list-fellow-activists-gets-three-years.html>

and in this case, you can find the docket sheets for these cases online.

most popular docket entry for a case?  petitions for fees, hearings for fees and fees, fees, fees granted.  All over the place.

QUESTION:  IS A GUARDIANSHIP PROCEEDING MERELY A MONEY LAUNDERING OPERATION FOR JUDGES, ATTORNEYS AND COURTROOM VENDORS?

take a look at these docket sheets I just downloaded:

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1DNg3_EjF9EDVKNM2G0FrwBWA5wuFcKn1

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1SAdHUMHLLENTXE4kng8KhRJfJ_MKMT9Z

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1DNg3_EjF9EDVKNM2G0FrwBWA5wuFcKn1

Just about every other docket entry (other than Barbara Stone complaining about how her mother is being abused in probate) is about Atty Roy Lustig and his cash cow firm getting paid.  AND MANY OF THE ENTRIES ARE SEALED.

Now you all know from this blog, the courts are supposed to be open and democratic, nothing is supposed to be sealed unless it is of the utmost dire urgency.  Not even state secrets can be sealed more than a few days after being declared a state secret well, because, that’s just old news someone’s got someplace on the internet.

More important, where is the constitutional requirement that every document be examined and there be a hearing and findings of fact and conclusions of law placed on record as to why the document was sealed and that must be public information on file with the clerk of court.  WHERE THE F IS THAT?

So the real question is, why are attorney fee petitions and fees granted illegally and unconstitutionally sealed in Miami Dade?

Because the judge is corrupt, the attorney is corrupt and both need to be disbarred, that’s why.

Both put Helen Stone in an abusive situation where she ended up with malnutrition, dehydradation, lacerations, contusions and broken bones and multiple infections in ICU for THREE WEEKS.  NONE OF THEM WENT TO JAIL FOR THAT–JUDGE GENDEN, ATTY LUSTIG GUARDIAN BLAIR LAPIDES OR THE 2 HATIAN CAREGIVERS–BUT THEY SHOULD HAVE.

Meanwhile, Barbara Stone is rotting in jail for crimes she did not commit.

Please pray for her and to DEMAND HER RELEASE.

Joanne

What the public (and most lawyers) do not understand is that when the ‘fix is in’  the decision is going against you.   Your arguments mean nothing and the fact that you are right is irrelevant.   You are just not going to beat the fix.
In JoAnne and my cases, a letter was revealed in Joanne’s case (and not mine) from Cynthia Farenga to Larkin 18 USCA 242 Conspirator Lea Black complaining of the fact that the Probate Sharks blog had reiterated our call for an HONEST INVESTIGATION.   Days later proceedings commenced against me in an effort to intimidate me and shut me up.    I knew instantly when Farenga was writing directly to Black ***** that I had no chance.   You saw exactly the same thing on a regular basis in In re: Mary Sykes 09 P 4585.   (Even without jurisdiction or a hearing Mary was condemned to being elder cleansed and any attempt to obtain her Constitutional Rights was thwarted).
With the ‘fix in’ and Larkin and his gang of 18 USCA 371/18 USCA 242 co-conspirators threatening disbarment for lawyers who comply with Rule 8.3 or 18 USCA 4 few lawyers are willing to risk their licenses.   Large law firms are full of timid lawyers who do not want to make waves.   Look at the American Bar Association.   They published the Non-Muslim ISIS violation of JoAnne’s First Amendment Rights pointing out that he was attempting the censor her blog AND MADE NO EFFORT WHATSOEVER to stand up and be counted.   What they did when members of the public wrote in horror that such could occur was to remove the comments from their website.
There is so much illegal money to be garnered in elder cleansing that the Fix appears to extend into the highest levels of government.   Take a look at the nursing home business!  How many billions of dollars does it generate in single month?   Take a look at the pharmaceutical business?   CVS purchase Omnicare for 10.4 billion dollars.    JoAnne found in one of the *** homes a sign offering “finder’s fees” of **** dollars for patients.   I understand several guardian at litem ***** have interests in nursing homes, and by magic elder cleansing victims wind up in those homes.
It is my opinion that public figure Jerome Larkin is well paid to protect these vested interests from gadfly attorneys who cannot sit quietly and watch the corruption of the American legal system.   These attorneys (like me) are spitting into the wind!   Only by honest law enforcement doing their job and enforcing the law will the fix be broken.
NB.  With Illinois on the verge of Bankruptcy, public pressure should be put on the Illinois Department of Revenue and the Illinois Attorney General to collect the State Income taxes due from Jerome Larkin and his co-conspirators.   In Florida, California, Washington, Ohio, etc he has counterpart who is acting in concert with the elder cleansers – they also should pay the Federal and State Income taxes, interest and penalties due.   At the very least the public would not have to be taxes for the indulgences of criminals in public office.

What exactly IS the definition of theft? LB was asking Scott the other day.

I am told that during Scott’s deposition the other day, he was asked if he thought the non inventorying of $1 million in gold coins constituted theft (objection–witness is not a lawyer and cannot formulate legal opinions).

I can’t believe LB asked Scott if he considered the noninventorying of $1 million in gold coins to be theft or not!  that’s a complete hoot.

first of all, you’re right about who cares if scott knows the legal definition of theft, but second of all, it begs a better question and that is, why would LB want to even consider bending the legal definition of theft.

okay, so if I see a million dollars in a safe deposit box with your name on it, can I just use it for a little and put it back, or,
maybe if I move it here for awhile or there for awhile, you won’t mind now will you,
or I’m just using it for a bit until Mary is no longer incompetent and then she’s gonna get competent and say what I did was fine because she likes me and I’m her beloved daughter Carolyn.

hmmm.  i’m not impressed.

if it looks like a  theft, sounds like a theft, smells like a theft and quack liks a theft, then it’s a duck?

You will in testify – I cannot envision the ARDC acting so overtly to protect Stern and Farenga et al that they would even attempt to have you barred from testifying.
I was wrong!   A petition came in in today’s mail.   Even though you have gone through hoops and gone the extra mile to accommodate, Ms. Black wants to bar your testimony.   I am sorry – she wants to prevent me from calling you as a witness.   As you are on her witness list, she still can call you.
The incentive to join Farenga, Stern, et al in the corruption is must be incredible.    I estimated the gold coins at about a million dollars in value; however, I must have underestimated the value as the harassment continues unabated.   We have to have an honest, comprehensive and complete investigation. It appears that we hit a nerve and the Constitution has been suspended!   The Administrator of the ARDC’s petition to bar your testimony in a trial in which I am the respondent is not only outrageous but a declaration that if you oppose the denial of liberty, property, civil rights and human rights in the eyes of the Illinois Judiciary you also lose your rights, privileges and immunities.   I find that concept totally unacceptable and I will not walk quietly into the gas chambers!   It is my intention to continue to fight for ‘grandma’s rights’ and win, lose, or draw I have no intention of allowing my civil rights to be compromised.
For your information I prepared a draft of a response to the petition filed by the Administrator.      It states what I wish to say:
Response to Motion to Bar Respondent’s witnesses based upon failure to Administrator to comply with Rule 201(k)
The Petitioner’s prayer for relief reads:
“The Administrator’s motion is Allowed/denied.  Respondent is barred from presenting Gloria Sykes as witness at the hearing in this matter.”
The motion of the Administrator does not allege any wrong doing on the part of the respondent or that Gloria Sykes is not a person named on the Administrator’s witness list and/or an independent person and citizen entitled to her liberty, her property, her civil rights and her human rights.     Indeed, the relationship between the respondent and the potential witness Gloria Sykes necessary for the Administrator motion to be viable was abrogated in 1865 with the adoption of the 13th Amendment to the United States Constitution.    The respondent is a bystander in the discovery dispute between Ms. Sykes[1] and the Administrator.
It is respectfully submitted that the  Petition of the Administrator to Bar use by respondent of the Testimony of Gloria Sykes reveals that the only action of the respondent in the dispute between Ms. Sykes and the Administrator were the attempts by the respondent to assist the Attorney for the Administrator in reaching an accommodation between her acrimony toward Gloria Sykes.      [Ms. Sykes is disclosed by the Administrator as one of his potential witnesses.]   The Respondent was not involved in the discovery dispute that is the subject matter of the Motion.    It is further respectfully suggested that in the United States of America there is no precedent for any duly constituted judicial body or panel barring an opponent’s witness because a discovery accommodation cannot be accomplished by the petitioner (plaintiff) with a witness.     It is respectfully suggested that the inappropriateness of these proceedings, the Administrator’s bias and lack of concern for due process and the Rule of law is evident in the Motion and mandate that the panel re-examine it prior rulings in relation to dismissal of the proceeding.
Under American Law , the respondent has no duty to ‘blackjack’ or intimidate persons who have knowledge of the falsity of the Administrator’s disciplinary complaint to appear for discovery depositions conducted by the Administrator.     To require such a duty would be in derogation of the civil and criminal laws of the State of Illinois and the United States of America.     Every person, regardless of race, color, National origin, or status in the case of in re: Mary Sykes is entitled to all the privileges and immunities of the United States Constitution, the Illinois Constitution of 1970, and the human rights declared by the mesne Nations of the World.     There is no exception that reads:  “except Kenneth Ditkowsky” or “except the witnesses of Kenneth Ditkowsky” or “except Gloria Sykes.”
 It is significant that the Administrator does not seek to enforce the subpoena served on Ms. Sykes, but instead seeks sanctions against the respondent[2] .     The Administrator cites no authority for punishing the respondent for his own failure to conduct a meaningful 201(k) conference with Ms. Sykes or his failure to attempt to enforce his subpoena.   Rule 219 addresses discovery sanctions and the cases interpreting those cases provide that in order to seek enforcement the petitioner must allege a meaningful attempt to resolve disputes pursuant to Rule 201(k).      The draconian sanction against the respondent (who is involved only tangency in this discovery dispute between the petition and a witness who appears on the Administrator’s witness list  is directly contrary to the mandate of the Appellate Court of Illinois to wit:
Because the purpose of these sanctions is to effect discovery, rather than to punish the dilatory party (Jones v. Healy (1981), 97 Ill.App.3d 255, 52 Ill.Dec. 695, 422 N.E.2d 904), a “just order” under Rule 219(c) is one which, to the degree possible, ensures both the accomplishment of discovery and a trial on the merits (White v. Henrotin Hospital Corp. (1979), 78 Ill.App.3d 1025, 34 Ill.Dec. 349, 398 N.E.2d 24). For these reasons, default judgment or dismissal of the action, being the most drastic sanctions, are ones which courts are reluctant to impose and should be imposed only as a last resort in cases where the actions of the party demonstrate a deliberate, contumacious and unwarranted disregard of *374 the trial court’s authority, all other enforcement powers at the court’s disposal have failed to advance the litigation, and which may be set aside where a trial on the merits could be had without hardship or prejudice. (Kubian, 178 Ill.App.3d at 196-97, 127 Ill.Dec. at 407, 533 N.E.2d at 25.)     Martinez v. Pfizer Laboratories Div., 216 Ill. App. 3d 360, 373-74, 576 N.E.2d 311, 320 (1991)
Fairness, which apparently is a foreign word that is unknown in certain legal circles, usually requires that documents and circumstances be reported in context and that completely.    It appears that some of Ms. Sykes’ communications have not been submitted as part of documentation.     This morning one Ms. Sykes’ e-mails to Ms. Black appeared on the net.    It is attached hereto and made part hereof as exhibit 1.
Wherefore the respondent moves that the Motion of the Petition be denied and that the deposition of Gloria Sykes go ahead as scheduled, to wit:   July 27, 2012 at 10:30 AM at the Chicago Holiday Inn and Suites, Chicago, Illinois.
[1] Ms. Sykes is on the Administrator’s witness list, yet the Administrator seeks only to bar the respondent from using her as witness.     This conduct is consistent with the Administrator’s ignoring 735 ILCS 110 et seq,  The First Amendment, land the recent Alvarez case decided by the United States Supreme Court.    Ms. Syke’s testimony is expected to disclose the unusual events that have occurred in the Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois, the unusual conduct of several of the Administrator’s witnesses who apparently claim to be judicial officials, confirm the words and phrases of one of the Judges of the Circuit Court in December 2009 that is most troubling, and the significant facts recited in her affidavit that verifies the respondent’s answer and counterclaim.    In addition Ms. Sykes is a signatory on a American Disabilitly Act complaint filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois that is consistent with whatever statements the Administrator claims were stated by the respondent pursuant to his First Amendment and Article One rights.     Picking a ‘discovery dispute’ with a person on his own witness list and seeking to bar ‘his own witness’ from being called by the respondent is not only a obvious attempt to ‘salt’ the evidence but a further demonstration of the improper conduct that respondent has attempted to have law enforcement honestly, and comprehensively investigate.     The Administrator in filing this instant motion places the legal profession is total dispute and demonstrates why there is reputedly a Spanish proverb to the effect that mouse would rather be assigned to a ‘cat’s mouth’ rather than a “lawyer’s care!”
[2] Rule 219 specifically provides that nonparties are subject to discovery sanctions for noncompliance.1 When faced with a refusal to comply with discovery by a nonparty, the primary sanction available to the trial judge is a finding of civil contempt and a corresponding fine. This sanction is designed to coerce compliance with court orders or subpoenas to testify at depositions.10 Ill. Prac., Civil Discovery § 19:21 (2011)

Subject: RE: Lea Black filed a motion to have me banned from testifying after she wrote

Lea Black filed a petition to have me banned from testifying because I am an ‘uncooperative’ witness and ‘unneeded’ according to her paralegal. This came after I wrote her and asked her to call me on Friday to resolve this matter.  I changed all my plans this week in order to testify and Scott holds no weight in this matter.

Ken you suggested I find a hotel and I did.  Then Lea Black faxes me a letter she claims she mailed to me on the 16th: I never received such a letter!  She then claims she can’t fax me, and refuses to e me.  She then says that she cannot fax me because it’s filled up.
Then she offers me to take the depo at an attorney’s office that will allow Shaggy, and since I fear ambushes and with all that Peter Schmeidel,, Adam Stern, Cynthia Farenga, and Deborah Jo Soehlig have been able to accomplish, I asked Mr. Larkin to step in.  He refused.
I am scared to death of our Judicial and the Officers of the Court and now the ARDC, who are suppose to protect the public from attorneys such as those I mentioned above.  I know that Lea Black needs to have me disqualified or banned as my testimony stands between my mother’s life being saved and being slowly murdered by a Probate Division and the officers of the court for greed.  Since I cannot afford an attorney in this matter I am pro se, and obviously, Lea Black can get away with ‘murder’ and ***.
I have jumped through hoops Ken to schedule a convent place as you suggested, and since Hotel’s no longer have ‘conference rooms’ but banquet halls, which I cannot afford. (There are business centers, but not good for meetings). That said,  I was going to have the Suite set up as a conference room.
Yes, Lea Black and the ARDC have caused me much pain and suffering and yes they have intimidated me.  On Monday they filed a motion to have my testimony banned and this comes after I asked Mr. Larkin to step in and/or Lea Black to call me (pursuant the letter, which I did not have a copy of when I wrote the first letter on Friday).  I have filed a complaint with the U.S. Postal inspector for stolen mail, but I did not get this letter of the 16h or any letter from Lea Black.  What is evident is that Ms. Black will go to any extent to prevent me from doing this deposition.  She and the ARDC do not want the truth and that is a matter of fact.  I don’t know what to do except to write a letter to the Commissioners and file another affidavit, as now it’s understood the questions they asked Scott Evans, who, unfortunately cannot testify to my mother asking for an attorney, the gold and silver coins, or even the Sodini requirements/notices.  The ARDC would have to have my Aunt Yo or Aunty Jo or even me testify to that.  Had I not been so terrorized by the Probate Division and Peter Schmieel, Deborah Soehlig, Adam Stern and Cynthia Farenga, who area sanctioned by the court to LIE and live above the law, I would have quickly agreed to allowing Ms. Black to arrange for one of her attorney friends offices.  As it is, and after yesterday where Toerpe defied the courts instruction and stole all my property, *****.
This is America Ken is it not?  I’m not scared to death to come near Chicago and the Crooks of the Court as officers of the court are protected by the ARDC and the Illinois Supreme Court to do great harm to innocents.  This is witness tampering.
(Apparently and according to Black’s paralegal, they’re satisfied with Scott Evan’s testimony as the only witness in your case Case.  Unfortunately, Scott’s testimony is simply hearsay, and he cannot testify to mother asking me to find you Ken, mother repeatedly asking for an attorney, any of the digital recordings (including audio recordings of August 2009), or the Sodini requirements.  Let this email stand to my  testimony that (1) I never received notice of a guardianship proceeding and was in court on the 26 August 2009 I, and mother’s sisters, Josephine DePietro, and Yolanda Bakken, (along with family Kathie Bakken and dear friends Scott Evans, Doris Evans, and Suzanne) were in court on the petition for the order of protections authored by and verified by my mother, Mary G. Sykes on June 9, 2009.  That on December 10, 2009, without notice, Carolyn Toerpe, the named respondent to a petition for a protective order was appointed guardian of Mary G. Sykes (and this was done even though Mary G. Sykes objected profusely to such a guardianship) by an agreement between Toerpe, and attorneys Adam Stern and Cynthia Farenga.  That even the docket is evidence that there were no notices, which are jurisdictional, and that the order clearly testifies to the ‘agreement’ between Toerpe, Stern and Farenga.  That there is NO ORDER setting a guardianship hearing because there were no 14 day notices.  The Petition or the order of protection is still pending and Illinois Statue clearly states that if a ‘respondent’ to a “petition for an order of protection’ is a guardian a ‘temporary substitute guardian SHALL be appointed”.  Given that the court lacks jurisdiction, and that Toerpe is a respondent to not only (now) two petitions for an order of protection, but also a contempt order for not complying with a court order, it is unfair and unreasonable to believe that the ARDC would go to such extremes as to prevent the one testimony that would save my mother’s life, but instead, protect the lawless and evilness of attorneys Adam Stern, Cynthia Farenga and Peter Shcmiedel.  I don’t know how high this ‘corruption’ goes, but it must be very deep and powerful.
That said, I will not be intimidated and will do what I need to do to testify, Ken.  I have that right and you have a right to call me as one of your witnesses.  I have cooperated, but Lea Black and the ARDC have done everything to stop and prevent the deposition as they do not want the truth on record.  With what happened yesterday, indeed I am scared to death, Ken, that Peter Schmiedel, Adam Stern and Cynthia Farenga will go to any extreme to cause me pain and suffering for their financial benefits.   Lea Black is conveniently not in today and Mr. Larkin has repeatedly redirected
Please advise.

Congratulations to the family of Daniel Ross–let’s hope that Mary’s Justice comes in time for her to enjoy it.

From NASGA, a belated story of happiness for one family member that continued on the fight for others in a conservatorship that just want to go home. Justice in this case came too late, tho. If you do not read the entire article, what this state Supreme Court said is that Daniel Ross just wanted to go home and his guardian had to listen to his wishes.

Mary G just wants to go home and have Gloria care for her. The situation is ridiculous where she is sitting in an unhappy home in Naperville where she was ripped from her home and family, friends, garden club she knew since the 1950’s. Her Plenary Guardian, when she is working, sends her to adult day care where she sits idly with low functioning adults.

Please help her and sign our petitions and see the videos (info below). Mary wants to go home. Gloria wants her there and has said she will care for her. Gloria has now been evicted from the home and all her assets frozen. Mary will be put in a nursing home (mark my words on this) and the house sold and put in a trust Carolyn benefits from. Don’t let this happen. It’s the nadir of our justice system. ~~from JoAnne Denison

Hi Ken,
You may not have ever heard of the Daniel Gross case (an interstate conservatorship involving CT and NY and a massive -and costly- tug of war between the two states – at Daniel Gross’ expense and to his detriment), but you will enjoy this article and appreciate the victory and the weight of such a victory. See the below article written by Rick Green, reporter for the Hartford Courant, who has followed the Daniel Gross case for several years. Perhaps you can use it in your advocacy efforts for Mary Sykes.
Dee King (Daniel Gross’ daughter) is a NAGSA member. We’re all celebrating this victory with her today!

The state Supreme Court stood up Friday for a simple right that matters deeply for all, but especially to the old, sick and disabled.
The job of a lawyer appointed by probate court is to fight for the client, whether he is healthy or a stubborn 86-year-old man.
In a unanimous ruling in the long-running civil rights case of Daniel Gross, the justices ruled that court-appointed lawyers do not have immunity from lawsuits if they abuse their clients. The court also ruled, in a divided opinion, that conservators appointed by probate have limited immunity. The justices also ruled that a nursing home does not have immunity from lawsuits in probate cases.
The ruling has far-reaching implications for our troubled probate court system. It means that a court-appointed lawyer, and to a lesser extent the conservator — who is appointed by probate when a person can no longer live independently — cannot ignore the wishes of a client. The message to probate court is clear: Lawyers and conservators must be held accountable.
For probate courts, this has huge implications because many of the unsettling and outrageous cases I have been writing about for the past six years stem from abuse by conservators and court-appointed lawyers and judges who don’t pay enough attention.
Although Gross died in 2007, his civil rights case lived on. The lasting lesson is that the old or disabled — even if they are unwell and cranky — have the same rights as the rest of us.
“It means that if you get a court-appointed lawyer, that lawyer cannot have any doubt that the lawyer’s job is to listen to you,” said Sally Zanger, the Connecticut Legal Rights Project lawyer who represented Carolyn Dee King, Gross’ daughter. “It’s what the lawyer is supposed to be doing.”
Amazingly, that’s been the problem in the probate cases I’ve been telling you about since 2006. Gross’ was the first and most heartbreaking case I stumbled upon, when a Legal Aid lawyer told me an unbelievable tale of an old man from Long Island being held against his will in a Waterbury nursing home.
Elderly but still independent, Gross became ill while visiting his daughter in Waterbury. He was hospitalized, and while his children fought over his care and who should control his finances, Waterbury Probate Judge Thomas Brunnock approved his involuntary conservatorship.
Gross wanted to go home to Long Island. He wasn’t told of the hearing where he was ordered conserved. His court-appointed lawyer, Jonathan Newman, failed to object to the conservatorship, even though Gross just wanted to leave Connecticut. His conservator, Kathleen Donovan, had him placed in a locked, restricted ward at Grove Manor Nursing Home in Waterbury. His roommate was violent.
Later, when Gross was on a day visit to his Long Island home, he was hospitalized. Donovan brought him back to Connecticut in an ambulance against the wishes of Gross’ New York doctor.
In June 2006, Superior Court Judge Joseph Gormley, at a dramatic writ of habeas corpus hearing, ordered Gross freed, declaring that “a terrible miscarriage of justice” had taken place and that the man had been “deprived of his liberty.”
King, Gross’ daughter, filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against Brunnock, Donovan, Newman and the nursing home. Brunnock, as a judge, could not be sued, but the U.S. 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals sent the question of immunity for the others back to the state Supreme Court for a ruling. King’s lawsuit against Donovan, Newman and the nursing will now go back to federal court.
Newman’s lawyer — who argued to the Supreme Court that his client’s role was like that of a lawyer for a child — did not respond to my call. A lawyer for Donovan, Richard A. Roberts, said the ruling might mean that conservators and court-appointed lawyers will be forced to go to a judge for every decision they make.
But Fairfield Probate Judge Daniel Caruso, president of the association of probate judges, said that his colleagues will welcome the ruling.
“When the Supreme Court articulates and provides brighter lines as to what is and is not within the bounds of immunity, it helps everyone,” he said.
Public-interest lawyers hailed the decision because it provides new accountability to a court system that critics say still lacks oversight.
“Our legal system has safeguards. Even when you are appointed by the court you are accountable for what you do,” Tom Behrendt of the Connecticut Legal Rights Project told me.
When I reached King, she reminded me of her father’s humiliation before a court that was supposed to protect him.
“He was robbed of his humanity at the end of his life,” King said. “He was used as a pawn. They just ignored him.”
We can’t change that, but the elderly man’s lasting legacy is a powerful one. If you are old or disabled, probate court is a less-frightening place thanks to Daniel Gross.
