MORE IMPORTANT DOCUMENTS:
This page will contain a table of the most important links in this case:
1. Documents regarding lack of Sodini notices:
A. Declaration of ADULT SISTER NO. 1: YB:
(declaration redacted for private purposes)
A.2 Declaration of ADULT SISTER NO. 2: JD
Note at the bottom of this document it just says she is elderly and not well and cannot make it to court. Which is fine. Courts do not require the infirm and elderly to come to court. This sister is in her late 80’s and should not have to come to court. There are telephone and video depositions that can be taken instead.
B. GLORIA’S DECLARATION OF NO NOTICE/NO JURISDICTION:
see paragraph 9:
C1. The Sodini case, which states that notice of the time, date and place of the hearing for guardianship MUST be served on all adult siblings and children:
Here is a link to the case:
You will note that this case is very similar to the present case where Mary’s two adult sisters were never served notice of the hearing. Bummer. The Illinois Supreme Court has ruled that it is a jurisdictional defect necessitating a dismissal of the entire proceeding.
C2. The Tiffany case, which states that written notice is a necessity and not merely a formality.
Here is a link to the case:
The Illinois Court of Appeals, 6th division, reversed the decision of the circuit court of Cook County because the State did not comply with the notice requirements of the Mental Health Code (a Statute). Similarly, strict notice requirements are also present in the current case, where the court did not comply with the procedure set out in 755 ILCS Section 11a-10.
D. Carolyn Toerpe’s Defective Petition for Guardianship where she forgets about her mother’s sisters:
E. Current TABLE OF TROUBLE FEASOR ACTIONS
This table is a comprehensive list of all the troubles, misfeasance, malfeasance, troubles, issues, problems and other actions conducted by the miscreants in this Sykes (the IARDC says I can’t use the words “corruption” or “tortfeasor”.) Probate case:
F. LIST OF MISSING TRANSCRIPTS, DOCUMENTS AND PLEADINGS IN 09 P 4585!
There are currently 13 large appellate volumes containing complete sets of pleadings, transcripts and orders missing from the Probate files. If see anywhere, please contact the court and get them back there ASAP!
This means MORE THAN HALF THE FILE IS MISSING!
If missing more than half a huge court file AND lack of Sodini notices to adult siblings and children isn’t clear evidence of corruption, cronyism and tampering, I don’t know what is.
Someone is clearly cleansing the file and doing it in a methodical fashion.
The fact that Appellate volumes are missing clearly shows a pattern to obstruct justice. The rest of the file is poorly organized and it is difficult to put it in order and make sense of it.
But appellate volumes are unique in that generally all important documents in the file to date are included, in order and without pages missing.
If the judge only had the file for about 2 years under lock and key, and the appellate volumes came back from the court of appeals in early 2011, it does not look good for the court or court insiders, or the GAL’s who Gloria and Scott say often emerge from out the Judge’s private areas! How does this happen? The wolves are clearly guarding the chicken house.
E. COST OF CORRUPTION — now $273,213 to produce this blog and help others!
G. PROOF OF CLAIM — ATTYS FEES RE 09 P 4485
(you can deduct the Target vs. Sykes fees–that was definitely Predatory Lending–33% are you kidding? I have not been to Target since. I believe that HSBC was the lender and they’re pure evil! Just take a look at any Google search on all the crap they have pulled, let alone the 33% interest they charge.)
CT and Gloria have expressed an interest in wondering why I publish “Cost of Corruption” which is considered to consist of 1) My proof of claim filed with the BK court regarding In Re Sykes (see my forebearance agreement with Gloria below) and 2) Monthly accounting for my legal time spent on the Sykes Blog.
Cynthia says that my time spent on the Sykes Blog is not billable and I can’t bill at attorney rates for it regardless. But the reality is, it takes an attorney to make those comments and further, I only publish this blog from a legal standpoint primarily, so yes, it does take an atty to write, review and publish it, and so atty rates are applicable. Further, by filing the bogus disqualification against me back in January of 2010, and then continuing the tort by filing a bogus ARDC complaint, denying me use of my laptop in court, my grievances against her and the other miscreants are continually being renewed. And since she interfered with my representation of Gloria and since Gloria still does not understand the nuances of the DisQ, the action is continuing and my losses are continuing. The only way I am left with helping Gloria and Mary is to run the blog–all else has been and continues to be interfered with by the miscreants. Hence, running the blog is also my damages for their tortious actions.
With respect to my deal with Gloria, it is this: I will offer her forbearance on the following terms: 1) she speaks only in a neutral manner or better about me publicly or privately; 2) she takes both bills and files them in her Ad Pro as a “Damages Exhibit” against the miscreants and helps me collect. She can just black out and redact the Target stuff.
I will assume that if she believes that I am not going to sue her she has accepted this deal, and this deal only.
2. Amended Petition for Partition
Before any petition for partition is filed, it is common practice (and common sense) to do an APPRAISAL to see if the property in question is even worth partitioning. Did Peter Schmiedel do this? No. There are so many things in this case that are simply not done correctly. Here is a link to the Amended Petition for Partition filed by Peter Schmiedel on behalf of Carolyn Toerpe. Yes readers, this is ACTUALLY filed even before any appraisal was done. For all they knew, the costs of partitioning could very easily outweigh the benefits. But since this case is filled with corruption and incorrect procedures, this misstep went unnoticed by the Court.
