RE: Complaint regarding Attorneys Nathan Goldenson, Joseph Pieper, Julie Fontarosa. Ashley Coppola Probate cases no. 13 P 4339 (guardianship) and 15 P 3545 (decedent’s estate)
Dear Madam/Sir;
I would like to file a complaint against the above attorneys:
1) Nathan Goldenson.  Illegally broke a trust, filed false police reports for false arrest, illegally sealed a guardianship case without due process.  Nathan Goldenson broke a trust without due process to myself and my brother, who were beneficiaries of the trust.  We were never served, as shown by the records of Sheriff’s Department.  The building was ruined by Nathan Goldenson and the OPG by having a heating pipe cut, which allowed the pipes to freeze and torrents of water destroyed the building. He also allowed squatters to live in the building.  I was the property manager and when ever I tried to have squatters (who were drug dealers and gang bangers)  evicted, he interfered with the court process and had me falsely arrested.  Every time I was falsely arrested by him contacting the local police, the charges were dropped at the first hearing date.  I was falsely arrested numerous times when he called the police to try to have me illegally evicted from the premises, even though I was the beneficiary of the building land trust, together with my brother Mark Scully, who is disabled.
In addition, Nathan Goldenson had my powers of attorney sumarially terminated in court without due process–no notice, no hearing, no discovery, no petition ever filed.  The Illinois Power of Attorney act requires I be given notice and a hearing.  None of that happened.
In addition, he illegally had the guardianship case 4339 sealed as of the beginning of the case so that no one could obtain any court information.  This was done without due process, notice, a hearing, discovery.  It was not until Sept 2016 that I was able to unseal the file, and even then, the court records today show that most of the records still cannot be viewed or printed publicly.  All of these violations of due process occurred because of Nate Goldenson.
2) Julie Fontarosa took a file from the clerk of court.  Judge Malone and Judge Riley can attest to the fact that the guardianship file 4339 was missing for months .  One day, Julie Fonatarosa walked into the front door of the courtroom with the file–and no clerk was present.  She put it Judge Riley’s desk and when he came to the bench, he demanded to know where the file came from.  Nathan Goldenson was present, Ashley Coppola was present and so was Joseph Pieper.  None of the attorneys answered.  Mark Scully, John Bisbikas, Harold Scully and myself were present and no one said anything.  We were all shocked to see the file after it had ben missing for about 6 months. But there it was.  After i looked at the file, I noted that it was missing a lot of pleadings.  I eventually was able to obtain a copy of the entire file (except for missing items), but only after months of asking.
3) Nathan Goldenson and Joseph Pieper    While the Guardianship file was sealed, the Pieper law firm in addition was given numerous pleadings from the sealed file from the OPG attorney Nate Goldenson–in fact, they were even allowed to view a sealed court file.  In addition, these attorneys allowed a member of the public, Richard McGreal to view the sealed court file.  This fact was documented in a Pieper law firm bill under the initial JWP on page 1 of 9 on 5/23/17.  The date the papers were tendered was 5/27/15–well before the 9/16/16 date when the file was ordered unsealed by Judge Riley.
I am asking that all of the above attorneys be sanctioned and disbarred for breaking a trust without notice, terminating my Powers of Attorney without notice, stealing court records and documents and hiding them, illegally sealing files, trading information from sealed court files (as shown by the Pieper Law Firm’s billing records) and showing sealed court records to a member of the public.  None of these persons should be practicing law.  Additional details are given in the attached “Objections to Attorneys Fees” attached hereto and the billing records of the Joseph Pieper law firm.  Particularly egregious is the sealing of a court file, and then the attorneys involved (Goldenson, Pieper, etc.) admitting they were viewing and trading documents and using them in pleadings when the case was still in fact sealed by court order.
It should also be noted that my brother Mark Scully is disabled, has great difficulty in walking (he walks with a walker and brace on his leg, and he can barely speak).  He needs medical care not covered by his insurance and all the OPG did was steal from myself (I am disabled and on SSI due to a separated spine) and from Mark Scully, who needs funds crucial to necessary medical care.


Very Truly Yours,


Linda Scully


Protesters continue to block streets in Chicago over corrupt case of Laquan McDonald

Today I heard on the news reports for traffic that protestors continue to block Chicago streets, and espcially the shops on North Michigan Avenue, over the heinous shooting of a 17 year old child.

And in the wake of that cover up, we see another 13 videos that need to be released:

and we also see hundreds of protestors at the Board of Trade Building:

and protestors here:

States attorneys say the videos may prejudice the jury, but it does not seem that’s all they are worried about.  Videos are often dereguier during bond hearings, and they come out at that time in a public space.  Why, then, the need to suppress them when it might lead to more eye witnesses at the scene who can explain what they saw when a Chicago citizen, apparently unarmed, is gunned down by Chicago Police.

But what everyone needs to know, from Father Pfledger to Jessee Jackson, Jr, the leader of many protests, is that it is not just IDPR or the Internal Department of Police Review which is corrupted.  We have string of people covering up and refusing to prosecute corruption in derogation of their official duties from Lisa Madigan’s offices, who have refused to investigate the Mary G Sykes case and who wrote me a letter saying her offices “don’t do” court corruption to the same from Anita Alvarez (heavily implicated in the L. MacDonald cover up) to Diane Saltoun, the inspector general who must investigate thefts from the state, in this case, the millions due in tax liability to both the feds and to a lesser extent the State of Illinois.

Why it is that the State of Illinois is broke and cannot pay its debts, to the Federal Government which allows 20% of all children to live in the US in abject poverty, and no one collects the crimes that are 100% taxable, is unknown at this time.

Corruption affects us all, and for certain, with Jerome Larkin, head of the Atty Regn and Disc. Comm. forcing lawyers such as myself, Ken Ditkowsky and Lanre Amu to shut up on all corruption, never disclose it to the public, (despite the fact the GAO –US govt accounting office–writes entire booklets on it, and Chicago Crain’s Business confirms problems with sitting judges), lawyers are to keep all crimes, all strings of felonies covered up until others publish about them.

It is corruption and coverups like this, a code of silence amoung the cops, politicians and lawyers in Chicago that have directly led to the cover up of dash cam police videos, and the deaths of teens in Chicago for merely having the wrong skin color.

Insidious racism and discrimination must end.  LaQuan MacDonald is now dead for being a black teen.  Mary G Sykes was narcotized to death by the guardian and nursing home staff (the nursing home doctor would not even sign the death certificate, it had to be signed by a doctor that had no seen Mary G Sykes for years) because she was too old at age 95 so her estate had to be fleeced and the crimes covered up by the court and the ARDC.

The current Pope has made it clear that deaths of the very young and very old will not be tolerated because this is clearly immoral and unethical, yet Chicago covers it all up.

Write to the Mayor’s offices and let him know it is not accpetible to kill off the very young and the very old.  Their lives matter.

Mary G Sykes needs a tox screen and autopsy.  Her death and the loss of 90% of her assets needs to have an honest investigation.  The ARDC has to be investigation in all of this.

The Mayor admitted investigations have to go further than the police department, and that is true.  Where are the lawyers and judges in  all of this unethical and immoral conduct?  Why does the Mayor and the Illinois Supreme Court let the ARDC discipline lawyers for speaking up and speaking out that corruption is wrong and unethical and immoral?  Why can’t we get investigations into deaths all over the place by corrupt officials, incluiding the police and the court system?

At some point, the FBI has to acknowledge and investigate the police, the lawyers and the judges.  They are all guilty of hundreds of deaths per year, and a typical Chicago investigation just covers everything up.

We must return to a free, open and democratic society.  No more cover ups.  Lawyers that protest and disclose must be declared protected Whistleblowers.
