From Gloria today—

If you all will please note my mother wants to die in her home, not the home of an named abuser.  It is her wish and like my father, she has that right.  All of my father’s care for the last two months of his life was paid for by either medicare or blue cross blue shield. No money was spent from his healthy estate and my mother didn’t have to pay one dime.  But then, the POA for Health Care naming me was like the petition for an order of protection my mother had verified by the State, was ignored.  Apparently and according to Toerpe, mother’s only wishes and dreams are the wishes and dreams Toerpe has for her — and as long as she and her partners in this crime financially benefit.  It’s sad when evil so obvious is ignored by the men and women of law enforcement who, by the way, are paid from our tax dollars.  Another words, they work for us and therefore, they should respond to our request.  In any event, this legal document the POA of Health Care is just another example of the competency and determination of my mother to free herself from the abuse and neglect Toerpe began to perpetrate upon her as started in 2005 when Toerpe took my mother to attorney Michael Hagerty and they worked together to draft a document that would confuse even another attorney at first sight, let alone a 85 year old woman.  That 2005 naked trust was vacated and a new will was generated, but Toerpe kidnapped my mother on June 30, 2009 with the help of retired Judge Gloria Coco and deputy sheriff at the Harrison Street Court and never served with the petition for guardianship, mother was denied legal counsel, was denied the right to pursue the order of protection petition against Carolyn Toerpe, and was denied her right to contest the guardianship: she was however, placed in the custody and care of her named abuser and financial exploiter and everything Toerpe did and is doing, Cynthia Farenga and Adam Stern is or has accused me of.  No evidence is needed and the evidence against Toerpe is swept under the table for a nice fee, I am certain.  

No person in the wrong can stand up to me, a woman in the right who keeps on a comin’!!!!  Of course, Cynthia Farenga, Adam Stern and Peter Schmiedel are probably planing another ambush where they get Sheriff Dart’s deputies to handcuff me to a chair and threaten my freedoms and liberties and spit on our Constitutions as if they are trained dog-fighting Pits.  Of course, all of these criminal acts and treasons against our Constitutions are sanctioned by the Court, by Judge Jane Louise Stuart and also, Chief Judge T. Evans.  And obviously Sheriff Dart’s deputies were given permission to aggressively remove me from my homestead based on a letter written to the lawyer for Dart’s outfit by attorney Peter Schmiedel who reported that there were not pending legal actions and that the stays in the bankruptcy court for the Homestead and equity were lifted.  That Sheriff Dart knowing his men were in the wrong has not done anything to correct the problem says that he is a hypocrite, too.  He spoke before at least 100 law enforcement and elder care men and women in 2010 and said he was prepared to do what is necessary to stop abuses of the elderly: in the Sykes case he is a co-****.

Also note in the letter she states that my mother is not living in her home: this is true because Toerpe kidnapped her on June 30, 2009.  I have a August 2009 digital audio recording of my mother asking me to pick her up and bring her home.  When I came to pick mother up, Toerpe had hid her at a McDonalds.  Kathie is witness to this horror.  I will make available the hour + visit digitally recorded for publication after I file the reply brief tomorrow.  Again, you will note how competent and rational mother is.  Toerpe, however held mother in a chair and would not let her up to move around.  Fred Toerpe kept his hand on her shoulder.  Again, Kathie witnessed this.  Toerpe and my mother was aware I was taping and Toerpe’s reply was, “It won’t make any difference”. This is evidence enough that the guardianship was a done deal.  I’ve been denied the right to bring evidence into the court of my mother’s extreme competency.  That said, I will make it public by the weeks end and I ask that all people post and cross post.  I will provide you with a series of photographs of my mother and me to lay over the top if anyone wants to put the visit on youtube. That said, it’s haunting.  It’s haunting.  The police were called and there was nothing they can do.  They found my mother hiding at McDonald’s under Fred Toerpe’s custody.  The police report found mother lucid but ‘confused’.  I’d be confused too, as Mother hadn’t been to a McDonald’s in over 50 years!  

 
Attached to the note from Cynthia Farenga is a copy of the POA for medical care.  The document was filled out by my mother in front of attorney Mr. Lippman, (he gave her the form: she met with Lippman on 25 June 2009 and vacated the 2005 trust and named her friend Marlene Kroll executor) and it was witnessed by neighbor and long time friend, retired LT from Chicago Fire Department, Chuck Maderer.  Kelly Yost notarized this document.  An affidavit by Chuck is also attached.  All of this can be posted as a reminder that the truth leaves tracks.  
 

That the Court sanctions these criminal acts against the elderly and disabled are crimes beyond comprehension.

“The Sodini notices were never served on my Aunt Yo, Aunt Jo, or me, and at no time was there a scheduled guardianship hearing: Carolyn Toerpe was appointed guardian based on an agreement between her and Cynthia Farenga and Adam Stern:: my mother was not present, but when she was present in court, she objected to the guardianship.  Cynthia Farenga when asked admitted my mother objected to the guardianship.  Cynthia Farenga also admitted my mother had not been served the 14 day notice: this acknowledgement was faxed to Judge Connors on or about August 26, 2009 and signed by Cynthia Farenga.”
Rather the vilifying everyone in sight – the expenditure of the same amount of time generates a Motion to dismiss using the above quote.    What is the big deal?
In the upcoming ARDC hearing I will want you to testify as to the quoted facts. If you have a copy of the acknowledgement I would like it.

I am leaving out one email from Gloria because it goes on and on over and over about how I am not her attorney and I don’t represent her.  While I have patiently explained to her before that it is obvious from the blog, there is already a disclaimer to that effect, her thoughts somehow get stuck on that topic on a fairly  regular basis.  So for the 100th time, I can’t represent a client and do a blog. It’s not possible.  I am doing the blog as an attorney, an officer of the court, and as a member of the press because my blogs and cross posts are nearly up to 10,000 views since November of 2011.  What is on this blog may or may not be in the court files.  Blank, unsigned and unstamped pleadings posted on this blog should be further researched unless the are clearly labeled as found in the court’s files.

And believe me, this is much, much shorter than what Gloria wrote.  Saved you all time!

From Cynthia Farenga– A special Request to Stop Helping her out

Dear Readers;
As you may or may not recall, [a special person] sent me a email whining there were “a lot of conflicts in the case” and she had no one to help her out.  Poor [entity].

So what did I do?  JoAnne to the rescue.  I drafted her a very nice Emergency Motion to Dismiss for Lack of Jurisdiction/Lack of Jurisdiction and emailed it to her and posted it here.

One would think she would say, “thanks for all the help, I appreciate it.”
But not [this entity].  See her response below.

take care

JoAnne

Dear [special person];

There is a disclaimer on the blog that no one is to believe anything was filed or not filed, or anything was prepared or not prepared and I don’t represent anyone involved in the Sykes case right on one of the front pages.

I believe I have a first amendment right to publish what I want and when I want.  I believe Ken has already treated you to a litany of First Amendment right cases where people get to publish whatever they want.

I am no longer on the case.  You disqualified me and ruined my relationship with my client with the severe disparagement from that one action, which as you are aware was bogus and wrongful in nature.

I will not forfeit my First Amendment Rights simply because YOU demand it.  I will write about and comment all I want on the Sykes case no 09 P 4585.

Any interference from you (or whining) will be taken as an action prohibited under the Illinois Citizen’s Participation Act.

Further, you whined at me you “had no help” in an email due to “so many conflicts”–so I helped you with the best thing you could ever do.

This is ONE AREA–jurisdiction–where there is no conflict amongst any of the attorneys involved.

And don’t get Ken going, he will send you and make you a list of dozens of first amendment rights cases from the Pentagon Papers, to Alvarez, to a litany of cases where people get to publish what they want and when they want.

If I were still on the case, I might be limited by my representation of Gloria, but you decided to file a Motion to Disqualify me which was rubber stamped by Judge [x].

So my participation in the case is as an officer of the court, and as member of the free press of the US.  You should note that my posts, cross posts and second blog are soon reaching 10,000 views.

I strongly urge you to file and present to the court that document I prepared for you on AN EMERGENCY BASIS.  Then the tide will turn and the next 10,000 views can be on a favorable basis.

thanks

From Atty Ditkowsky to GAL Atty Cynthia Farenga

A CALL FOR A COMPLETE INVESTIGATION

Ms. Farenga,
 
I thought about your last e-mail this morning and it occurred to me that you actually might not know that the Sykes case is not only a serious matter, but, an innocent senior citizen has in fact been deprived of her liberty, property, civil and human rights.    Indeed, it is possible that you might not know that the Illinois Legislature enacted the statute described and interpreted by Sodini to protect against exactly the type of situation that has occurred in Sykes.    (Indeed, it appears that jurisdictional protections appear to be honored by non-compliance in many cases such as Tyler, Wyman, etc  – the GAO report of September last confirms this theory)
 
The problem that you face – or will face is the fact that like Justice Sotomeyer the public is getting ‘sick and tired’ of lawyers claiming innocence for bad deeds that are clearly prohibited by statute.   Too often Judges have stated when confronted by a lay person – “ignorance of the law is not excuse!”   Members of the 2nd oldest profession also use the excuse of I did not know the law and other members are sympathetic as they impose strict standards on the public.    The Sykes’ treatment of Gloria Sykes is an example. Thus, while you, Stern, and Schmiedel ‘cut corners’ and act under color of statute to deprive Gloria and others of their civil rights you and the Court demand that people like Gloria Sykes strictly comply with the Rules.    Want an example?   You, Adam, and Schmiedel were well aware when you filed the sanction motion against me that the Court had no jurisdiction!   The net was you wasted your time, my time and the Court’s time.    Further you will spend hundreds of hours in defending a very viable civil rights suit that could result in a seven figure verdict against you personally.  
 
A second example is the Sykes case itself.   You, Stern, and Schmiedel are well aware that the Petition to appoint Carolyn as plenary guardian is defective, and that the required jurisdictional notices were never written or mailed.    Thus, as a matter of law the Probate Court for over three years has operated without jurisdiction.   The ‘cover-up’ is the Son of Greylord and ultimately will result in some sort of serious prosecution of the culpable.   How could you not know of the jurisdictional problem?   Justice Sotomeyer’s decision in Jerman answers the question – you are presumed to know the law and that presumption is very strong.   Clout only works for a short period of time – it works until the ‘clout’ is required to account.   All that said, Gloria Sykes and Mary Sykes have a very viable civil rights suit.    [as the court has no jurisdiction there is no immunity and what would be absolute immunity for you as a GAL does not exist in the Sykes case]
 
There are many more examples of the Sykes guardian and guardian ad litem acting sans jurisdiction.   An injunction was entered without the prior filing of a verified petition and without the mandatory bond.   The citation proceeding is flawed!     You as a seasoned lawyer owe a duty to the ‘ward’ and to the ‘court’ to prevent such misconduct.   You have a great deal of temerity even suggesting that you are an innocent and that the only misconduct that you know of is that of Gloria Sykes.   Such a rationalization is obscene!   
 
A while back – after the decision of the Appellate Court throwing out the sanction for lack of jurisdiction – I offered you the simple proposition (Safe Harbor e-mails) of you reporting the facts to the Court in exchange for my just forgetting about the Civil Rights remedy that I am entitled.   Your rejected the proposition.   This of course was your right.   I called upon you to join with me and call for an honest, complete, and comprehensive investigation of the Sykes case – if you had nothing to hide.   Again you and Stern rejected the call.   A simple review of the facts, the docket, the transcripts of the Sykes case and the reason for the rejection is obvious.  
 
No, I am not going to make any more offers of settlement – I have written law enforcement and others demanding a full complete and honest investigation.    Mary Sykes is in her 4th year of captivity.  Over a million dollars in her assets have not been accounted for and certainly not inventoried.   (For the record – I was Mary’s attorney and wrote up her will – I know what her estate consisted of and I know exactly how many double eagles she had and what they were worth – I could care less whether the guardian – who had the safety deposit box drilled shared with you and Stern the ‘booty!’    By your e-mails and non-action you have aided and abetted Income tax evasion)   I am appealing to you as a human being to reach out to Gloria Sykes and the organizations that support Mary Sykes and ‘free Mary Sykes!’   Join with Ms. Denison, and the organizations that support Mary and Gloria Sykes and request a complete honest and comprehensive investigation of not only the Sykes case, but all the cases in which similar events as have occurred in Sykes are rampant!   
 
Right now you are ‘young’ and do not face the avarice that many senior citizens are confronted.   Instead of finding themselves in the bosom of loving families, they are confronted by children who cannot wait for grandma to die before seeking to loot her estate.  Even more troubling is the appearance Cynthia Farenga and Adam Stern who aid and abet the scenario and when confronted by the consequences of *** come forth with ” Gloria did it!”   The climate that you helped create is a cancer and will be something that you most probably will personally confront in your household as you have demonstrated to your children and grandchildren that it is OK to deny grandma her liberty, her property, her civil rights and human rights.    Newton point out that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction and this is one of the primary laws of nature.    Today we recite the law by – ‘what goes around comes around’    
 
Thus, the joining with me, Denison, Sykes and the Anti Elder Abuse organizations in calling for an honest investigation of the Sykes case you act in your own best long term interests.    Even at this point in time – doing the ‘right thing’ will provide you with great benefits; however, *****     The decision is yours and we all will fight the death to preserve your right to act inappropriately and in derogation of your own best interests.

And I need to add that Ms. Farenga, you need to do an Emergency Motion for Tuesday to non suit this Probate case due to lack of jurisdiction, attach YB’s declaration and Gloria’s declaration, although I’m sure Gloria will be there in court and Ken and I will be glad to draft up the order for you, and serve the Motion by personal service on each of the adult siblings and children as Illinois Probate Law dictates, and LET MARY GO FREE back to her own home!  You know there is no jurisdiction, AS knows there is no jurisdiction.  Perhaps the other sister’s affidavit will be in my mail today, I’ll go check.  Gloria will just testify.  Hopefully it won’t last an hour as she lambasts you and AS for your outrageous behavior!

Please draft the motion and personally serve it on Monday to all the adult children and siblings of Mary Sykes.

Ken, we need calls to Non Suit on an emergency basis and get the FBI/police to investigate bank accounts.  Where are the gold coins!

String of Emails between Ken and Cynthia tells it all…..

Dear Readers;

Something has happened that I never thought would happen, and that is a string of emails between Atty-GAL Cynthia Farenga and Atty Ken Ditkowsky!

I simply cannot believe that CF, a clearly ethics challenged atty is writing KD, an attorney that has been clamouring for an investigation since he first became aware of the Sykes Probate case 09 P 4858 and noted many problems with the case 1) an excellent long term care giver (Gloria) was chosen as guardian over a barely there, somewhat estranged sister (Carolyn), 2) the case was railroaded with a clearly deficient Petition not naming all close relatives (I just got a case like that and the response was oh well–oh well nothing, it’s jurisdictional, babe and an extremely serious fatal deficiency); 3) no discovery,e ven though discovery was asked for; 4) claims of gold coins being in the estate, safe deposit boxes drilled out and looted even though the Plenary Guardian knew that another sister’s name was one it—-oh go see my table of torts for further information of a long history of irregularities in the case.
So please read on below.  Cynthia is amazing in wondering and worrying about this blog.  The information on it is growing.  On Monday I should have up a page of “Important Documents and Evidence against the Miscreants” which will have things like my Table of Torts, the Declaration of Sister 1 saying there were no Sodini notices, etc.

My advice to you Cynthia (and this goes for Adam, the other GAL) is to waltz your butt into court on Tuesday with an emergency motion served to Gloria and the sisters by fax, email and personal delivery (yeah, pay the $50 to get the motion out to the burbs where these ladies live or drive them out yourself and apologize like a big girl) to nonsuit/dismiss and attach the petitions of Sister 1 and Gloria and ask the case be nonsuited because there is no jurisdiction.  There is absolutely no proof in the file that attorney Harvey Waller served Sodini notices, which are jurisdictional with the following 4 elements 1) it must be in writing; 2) it must be served on close relatives (adult siblings and children);  3) it must state the time, date and place of hearing and 3) It must be served by Petitioner 14 days in advance of the hearing.  None of this was done.  The GALs are supposed to attend to these details.  You and GAL Stern did not.  3 years of this nonsense against Gloria and her mother who do want to be together.
My advice to you is to nonsuit the case and join KD and myself in calling for further investigation and a complete asset search of CT.  Heck, do Gloria too and it will show she is not the miscreant in all of this. It will take an FBI officer minutes to look at bank accounts statements, balances, etc. over the last two years.  How did Carolyn pay for her daughter’s fancy wedding and finish up remodeling her house when she is a retired school teacher and her husband was out of work for years?  Pull the tax returns from the IRS and do a comparison!

Your job was and still is to ask questions and protect Mary.
You seriously failed in that.  But don’t wallow in pity–get going!

JoAnne

Subject: Re: Assorted

It is interesting that you think you did not do anything wrong.  You did and continue to do quite a bit wrong.  As an attorney and as a ‘human being’ you should know what you did wrong.   The first thing you did wrong was to have denied Mary Sykes her liberty, her property, her civil rights and her human rights.

Please allow me to be more specific.   [KD response start] The Statute requires that prior to a guardian ship proceeding being held Mary Sykes and all her close relatives are entitled to a written 14 day notice.   As an attorney you should be aware of this jurisdictional criterion.  Thus, it appears that the Probate Court lacks jurisdiction.  The de-facto appointment of Carolyn Troepe is therefore flawed. I trust that you are aware that this makes certain actions undertaken not only questionable but patently illegal.   As an example how could Mary (and Gloria’s) safety deposit box be drilled and the content’s removed.   The contents included jewelry and collectibles.   I estimate the value at over a million dollars.    As this million dollars was not inventoried it appears that someone other than Gloria dis something wrong.   It also appears that the total isolation of Mary from her sister and her daughter were also wrong.   [KD response start]The aiding and abetting this conduct was also wrong and in my opinion makes you and Adam Stern Accessories during the fact.    If you want details read the ADA complaint filed in Federal Court.    

[KD response con’t]Of serious concern are your statements concerning Gloria Sykes.  You cannot point to a single act of hers that was wrong.   As a citizen – you know one of those little people protected by the Federal and State Constitutions – she has every right to resist the attempts by you (plural) to deprive her of her liberty, her property and her civil rights.   The reason I am adamant in my defense of Gloria and Mary is the simple fact that I believe in the principles of American democracy!    I would be such as vigorous in defending and standing up for your rights!   If you had done a scintilla of due diligence you would have discovered that Gloria had a serious insurance claim.   Lumberman (Kempers) denied the claim and she sued.   After years litigation they offered her and she accepted a settlement.   As Mary was placed on the title by Gloria to complete her estate Mary was as an afterthought brought into the Lumberman case.    Mary had and has no interest in the property as she has (had) her own home and therefore with the aid of an attorney she signed away her share of the settlement.    As Gloria would say – the statements that you made to the Court were all intentional and knowing untruths (lies).

I do not care if you pay the taxes due for the breach of fiduciary relationship, nor do I give a damn if you got dime one of the ‘loot’ from Mary’s estate.   I will leave it to law enforcement to figure out you culpability.

You keep making statements about the corruption in the judiciary.   As you are constantly upon on the 18th Floor, you must have knowledge of who, what and where.   As my practice is general I would not be privy to whether or not your allegations of corruption are true or false.  I do know however the the Sykes case has a massive jurisdictional problem.   The entire guardianship fiasco in Sykes is clearly without jurisdiction.   Gloria and her aunts were not served with the 14 written notice.   Gloria has filed an affidavit to that effect, and I am informed that Aunt Jo has also provided an affidavit.  Mr.Stern in an e-mail disclosed that in lieu of written notice he, you, and Ms.Troepe agreed that Mary should have a guardian.   Mr.Schmiedel is quoted in the transcripts as pointing out the application for a guardian was also deficient and no written notices were sent out.

On a level playing field a Judge first checks to see if he/she has jurisdiction and then if he/she does not it is ‘game over!’   Why this has not occurred in Sykes is a mystery.   It should not be as the Sykes case has two Guardian ad litem who are aware that the jurisdictional criterion has not been met and each has a duty to report that fact to the Court.   It would seem to me that that failure is not only wrongful but a serious breach of fiduciary relationship on you part.  You are not alone however – Mr.Schmiedel as an officer of the Court and Mr. STern as a guardian ad litem also are culpable.

If there is a word that you do not understand, Ms. Sykes can explain it to you.   I understand that she was an elementary school teacher in another life.    Your ‘clever’ repartee is not appreciated.   The Sykes case is a serious matter.   A senior citizen has been isolated from her family, her activities, her friends and her life with the aid of two guardian ad litem.    This same senior citizen has had too many trips to the emergency room and too little contact with her former life.   There is serious question as to whether this senior citizen was incompetent – it is my believe that she was indeed competent but railroaded by clearly unconscionable means into the loss of her liberty.

Ms. Farenga – if you had a scintilla of ‘good faith’ you would join with me in requesting law enforcement to do an honest, complete and comprehensive investigation of the Sykes case.

Dear Ken,
I  know that you believe your friends throughout every level of law enforcement will soon be at our doorstep. I happen not to believe that since as far as I can tell, the only one who may have acted inappropriately is Gloria. I note you did not answer the question of why you are so eager  to protect Gloria when Mary was allegedly your client.Just what is it about Gloria that impels you to violate your ethical duty to Mary in the event of even a potential conflict between them? Again, using your own logic, how do we know you all aren’t in a a conspiracy to share any funds that Gloria may recover in this litigation?  [KD response start] I have a very viable civil rights (42 USCA 1983) claim against you, Adam Stern and Schmiedel.   As you singled me out and filed a sanction motion against me in a Court that lacked jurisdiction – under color of statute you violated my civil rights.   That should be a 6 or 7 figure verdict. [KD Response end] Very odd. Only you and JD have been paid, but JD continues to post invoices left and right claiming  hundreds of thousands of dollars of fees, yet we are supposed to think that all of your hands are clean? Running a blog is not a legal task. Who is the client that JD proposes to bill upwards of $55k plus interest for running a blog?  [KD response start]Why is that any of your business.  The use of a Blog and communication is a FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHT.      It is my understanding that the National Socialists do not have any candidates running in the current election cycle – ergo, their proposed legislation has not been enacted and the Citizens of the State of Illinois are still free to object to the acts of denying a senior citizen of her liberty, her property, civil and human rights.  [KD Response end] [JD response—the reason you have not been paid is because you are acting without jurisdiction and engaging in malpractice and malfeasance and breach of fiduciary duty.  It’s hard to get paid when you are ultra vires and committing continuing torts on a routine basis.]
You will all continue to run off at the mouth. There will be no nice view of the prison courtyard for us because We have done nothing wrong. The corruption of Greylord proportions, the corruption of the entire probate division, judges and attorneys, the accusations against Judge Evans and Justice Connors–this is all your imagination. JD’s and Gloria’s. One day in court at the beginning of this mes (sic) Gloria told me she’d pay for care giving in order to bring her mother home pending the resolution of the guardianship. She retracted the offer the next day. You can post, email, fax, blog and do whatever, but in the end, I feel sorry for you. There is not a single fact of wrong-doing you have found (as opposed to your made-up accusations), nor will you. There is none.  [KD response start]Last I heard, it was a crime to take possession of ‘grandma’s’ property without her consent.    Indeed, according to Justice Sotomeyer lawyers are supposed to know the law and to be aware that Court operating without jurisdiction issue void orders!    Persons who knowingly  act pursuant to void orders get free orange jumpsuits! [KD Response end]  
Though I’m busy writing my own book, I feel the need to let you know  that we realize these accusations are all phony. In the meantime, when the IRS knocks on my door, I’ll invite them in for tea and crudites, answer their questions and sit them down to read all of the lunatic postings that are on line. I will be glad to pay tax on the income from my book, however. [KD response start]Unfortunately and unhappily the averments that have been made are all true and correct.    You can blame Gloria Sykes for the troubles of the world, but that does not solve any of them.    My dear friend – if you look in the mirror you will see the person who bears the greatest culpability for Mary Sykes loss of her liberty and her property.   You also will see in the same image the person who failed to report vital information to the Court and/or condoned conduct that is deplored by all civilized peoples.    I sincerely hope that when the IRS comes calling you can be glib and confident; however *****[KD Response end]

Ms Farenga,

Please send me the file that you have from the Secretary of State.  The information that I have that in late 2008 or early 2009 Mary and Gloria were going to California and Mary needed her license renewed.   She could not do so as it had lapsed.   Therefore she was required to take the written as well as the driving test.  She passed the written test with flying colors but had to retake the driving portion.  It is interesting (but not unusual in Illinois) that this little fact does not appear on the Secretary of State record.

I grieve for you as to your tale of woe having allegedly not been paid.  Being part and parcel of the looting of a senior citizens’s estate is a breach of fiduciary relationship and a taxable event.  I know what Mary sykes had –  remember I did her Will.  She discussed her Estate with me and I remember a good amount of detail.  I even know the number of gold coins!   Your aiding and abetting the non-inventory of the assets of the estate makes you an accessory!   I let the US Attorney explain to you the consequences at a proper time and place.

Unfortunately Attorney fees must meet the criterion of being ‘necessary’ and provide some benefit to the ward.    The services that you performed were worth absolutely zero to Mary in that:

1) The simple protections that the State affords to Mary – as Mr. Stern reports in an e-mail – were obviated by you, Stern, and Troepe agreeing to appoint Carolyn as the plenary guardian.  If you have been reading JoAnne’s postings at this point in time you have been educated to Sodini and know that this technicality is jurisdictional.   As you should know – no jurisdiction no ‘cover’ of statute and the ‘loot’ is taxable!   

2) you aided a abetted three plus years of abuse to Mary, including an episode that placed Mary in the emergency room having lost ten percent of her body weight.

3) you aided and abetted Mary from having contact with her sister and her younger daughter.

4) you aided and abetted  efforts that were calculated to kee Mary from being represented by counsel and having a day in Court.   I would call this aiding and abetting the deprivation of Mary Sykes’ liberty interests.

5) you aided an abetted in the ‘rape’ of the civil and human rights of Gloria and Mary Sykes.

As the Court has no jurisdiction (Sodini) you are at best a ‘de facto’ GAL and as such you have no immunity.  Of course to the extent that your conduct violates the law you are culpable and have to answer to law enforcement.   As to Gloria, JoAnne, and myself at a proper time and place you will answer in damages.    (Had you seen that the Sodini protections had been afforded Mary – we would have no remedy against you personally – but using Stern’s words – this “technicalilty” *****

Ms. Farenga – a while back I asked you to join with me and requesting a complete, honest and comprehensive examination by law enforcement of the Sykes and related cases.   You and Mr. Stern refused.  It should be very clear that you do not have the ability to intimidate Ms. Sykes, Ms. Denison or myself.    We are not going away and win, lose or draw before the ARDC and where-ever you choose to complain for you and Mr. Stern (and Ms. Troepe and Mr. Schmiedel) this is not going to end.   Ms. Sykes, Ms. Denison and yours truly have no intention of meekly marching in a ‘box card’ to be later herded into the gulag.   EVERYONE KNOWS THAT A TERRIBLE WRONG HAS BEEN COMMITTED BY FARENGA, STERN, SCHMIEDEL AND OTHERS WHO HAVE AIDED AND ABETTED THEM in denying Mary Sykes and Gloria Sykes their liberty, their property, their civil rights and human rights.

Tomorrow is a new day – Sykes, Denison and I do not seek revenge or even recrimination – we seek the freeing of Mary Sykes and that she be allowed to live out the few days that she has left in the bosom of those who care for her.  How can you as a human being rationalize that Mary has been and is being separated and not allowed contact with her younger daughter and her younger sister!   (The million dollars in assets that have been taken from Mary is irrelevant to Gloria, JoAnne.   It may not be to the IRS or IDR.

If you recall several years ago Gloria begged you to join with her to free Mary and get Mary out the abusive Gulag!   You responded with one of your “Gloria did diatribes.”   At that point in time it was no harm, no foul situation however, you rejected Gloria’s magnanimous offer.   Too bad.

One more point – I do not know what the United States Department of Treasury’s policy is on those who aid and abet the evasion of Federal Income Taxes; however, I suspect that they will be fair and just.

Ken,
Just as soon as I return from visiting my hositalized relative, I’ll send over the secretary of State’s file on Mary’s driver’s license issue dates and test dates. Presumably you haven’t seen the file, because Mary did not take a test in 2009 and her last license was issued in 2005 (working from memory, or 2006 at the latest).
How ironic that Adam and I have in fact been working without payment of a dime thus far, while you and JoAnne have both stated in open court that you have received fees. JD said she received $20k or $25k. [JD response—and I have also done about $180,000 in work or more to root out corruption—time I could spend on other cases and other matters, while you two fiddle on 3 years in a case without jurisdiction]
You can fabricates more “facts”, as you all will, but I continue to question why you, who once allegedly represented Mary, are so anxious to see that Gloria gets all of the settlement money w/o expressing any reservation. Maybe, Ken, you folks are the ones who have a financial interest in this matter and seeing to it that Mary does not receive any money so that Gloria can.Perhaps you are expecting to share with Gloria? [JD response—that’s inane, KD and I call for an investigation and you do nothing.  If we call for an investigation one or all parties can be investigated.  We never said only investigate CT.  You are twising words] Your  theory about Adam and me makes no sense, as we have said before. Adam and I did not know about any alleged money trove, be it gold coins or cash in the mattress and frankly, why would we? Gloria’s OWN cross-petition does not disclose such assets.  [JD Response—Gloria has complained over and over and I know I sent you emails about the gold coins and YOU AND AS REPEATEDLY TELL THE COURT “IT IS A FICTION OF GLORIA’S IMAGINATION”, and you do not tell the judge that Ken Ditkowsky, who did the estate planning for the Sykes for years, lists those gold coins in his estate inventory which lists and information are business records and should be brought to the court’s attention for further investigation]

I know that you are imagining these “facts” [JD Response–how do you know that—have you investigated?  Nope, not one piece of discovery has been served on Carolyn—and you could have done that back in Jan 2010 and prevented misery for all of us, esp. Carolyn because at that time she could have put them back and not spent them], but I occasionally feel the need to tell you that we know they are demonstrably untrue. And you should be ashamed to be putting the law license of a young lawyer, Annie, in jeopardy, as yours and I would guess JoAnne’s will be [JD Response—this is really interesting, it shows how little CF investigates.  Annie is a law clerk and that is on our website.  Cynthia, do you ever read anything?  Annie will be please tho that you think she writes well enough to be a lawyer.  I think her non-lawyer status is clear from her writing, but *****]. Now J has this young woman on the bandwagon commenting on an area of law she seems to have no background in, and parroting JD’s tone when she makes blog entires (sic). You really should be responsible enough to leave this phony expose to yourself and JD and not to stain a young lawyer’s reputation. If you are so sure you’ll be winning a gold medal for your Greylord- like expose, leave her out of it now and promise her the credit in the future. [JD Response–Cynthia, if you don’t do the work and don’t use your own name, then there will be no credit in the future for you.  Plus, it is important that if someone writes for the blog, that person is identified.  Anyone can write and post anon junk.  The web is filled with cyber junk.  I encourage integrity.  And it’s obvious all you’re trying to do is intimidate and bully around another person–not going to happen, babe.  Annie has read the Probate Act end to end and she has read Sodini.  If you have something to say to Annie, put it on the blog.  But right now you and AS have no jurisdiction to do what you’re doing and the world knows it.]]

Subject: Jurisdiction

The State of Illinois does not have jurisdiction in Gary Indiana, Cleveland Ohio, or even Milwaukee Wisconsin.    A subpoena stops at the State line.   An Illinois Judge’s order stops at the State line.   An Illinois judgment cannot be enforced in Indiana.

Our friends in writing threatening letters to people outside the jurisdiction of the Illinois are acting without any immunity whatsoever and it is my opinion can be prosecuted in the County of the State where the victim resides.    It is further my opinion that as the Sodini requirements for jurisdiction to vest in the Circuit Court Probate Division have not been met there is no immunity for their acts even though authorized specifically by a judge’s order.    The judge to act as a judge must have jurisdiction.    this is the reason most judges make inquiry as to jurisdiction as issue one.

The fact that a guardian ad litem sends an unauthorized subpoena does not vest the Court with jurisdiction over the person.    A subpoena must be served and must be served within the territorial jurisdiction of the court.

In re: Sykes is a case for the ages.  I have never seen so must ultra vires conduct in any case prior and have never seen so much disconnect on the issue of jurisdiction.   Since Jerman the presumption of lawyers knowing the law is in the forefront and all these actions undertaken without jurisdiction are going to have serious consequences.

An Elderly Sister signs a declaration-Proof that the proper Sodini Notices were not SERVED

An elderly sister of Mary G Sykes has signed and mailed her declaration back to our office stating that she did not receive proper Sodini notice. This is GREAT news because now we are one step closer to proving how corrupt and unjust the case truly is. JoAnne has already faxed copies of this Affidavit to Lea Black. Now we wait anxiously as we wait for Mary’s other elderly sister  to mail us back her declaration.  Justice MUST prevail!

Re: JoAnne M. Denison ,  In relation to Cynthia Farenga’s Complaint AND
Kenneth Ditkowsky, the Sykes Probate matter 09 P 4585
PLUS my request to open an investigation against Cynthia Farenga, Peter Schmeidel, Adam Stern, Harvey Waller
Request for subpoenas!

Dear Ms. Black;

Without waiving my representation by Mr. Ditkowsky, who is aware of this communication, attached are two declarations for signature by the adult sisters of Mary G Sykes, namely, Ms. Josephine DiPietro and Ms. Yolanda Baaken.

Their addresses are as follows:

Ms. Josephine DePietro
222 Park Avenue
Bloomingdale, Illinois 60108

Yolanda M. Bakken
1600 N. 39th Avenue
Stone Park, IL

I would appreciate your transmitting these to these ladies to inquire if the declarations are in fact true, and they were never formally noticed by the Petitioner in the above Probate matter as to the Dec 7, 2009 Petition for Guaradianship of Mary G Sykes which was filed by Carolyn Toerpe.  This would make the entire matter–the freezing of Gloria’s $272,000, her subsequent eviction, the partition action filed against her home, her continued harrassment by the miscreants–void ab initio.

Thank you for your continued attention and investigation of the above matter.

This important communication was also posted on my blog at http://www.marygsykes.com, and http://www.marygsykes.blogspot.com, so if you lose it, it will be available there.  Also, if you do not want to retype it, today’s post provides a convenient link so you can just download a Word file to change as you please or just print out..

PS–this is also being sent to you as part of my (our) continuing duty to report serious and flagrant violations of the rules of ethics and relevant state and federal laws to the ARDC.

PPS–I am told by a little bird that Josephine thinks “being allowed” to visit her sister once every two months and a phone call once or twice per month is okay because neither Yolanda or her daughter Kathy Bakken–family members once very, very close to Mary G Sykes–were told they “took the wrong side” in the dispute and therefore they are not allowed to see Mary.  I find such conduct of an officer of the court deplorable, but ****.  So you might make Josephine aware it is part of her civic duty to step forward and tell the truth–the court has no jurisdiction and Mary is able to go free and go back and live in her own home if she wants.  And, no a Guardian ad Litem is not supposed to “take sides”, but report fairly and honestly.  Mary G’s sisters used to phone each other all the time.  Gloria held parties for her all the time.  Now CT keeps her in near total isolation with just handful of visits/phone calls.  I am told at a favorite niece’s wedding, the sister’s family table was only about 5 relatives when that side of the family used to have dozens of extended family members visiting Mary (see the Christmas tape links on Vimeo – the links are on the home page of http://www.marygsykes.com.

What’s the deal with the [agency] complaints taking sooooo long to be dismissed

Dear Readers;
One of the issues I have been struggling with is that the [agency] complaints against Ken and myself for simply running a blog about the Sykes case.  I just can’t figure that one out.
It’s clearly a blog, it’s clear neither Ken nor I represent Gloria or Mary, we’re just concerned.  I also have known Gloria, Carolyn, Fred, Mary G, Scott, Doris and other friends and family for years.  I don’t get that.  Ken was the family attorney, so why is Ken accused of lying about all of this?  If anyone should know about $1 million in gold coins and cash in the mattress, Ken would know.  I also checked directly with the friends and family and the gold coins and cash are well known.  No one is amused by the cash grab by the miscreants.  All the family–with the exception of the miscrants–agrees that Gloria was doing a great and loving job of taking care of her mother for 10+ years.
There’s little to dispute in this case–outside of the 18th floor, where the case suddenly enters the Twilight Zone with time, space and perception being dramatically warped into something bizarre, twisted and unreal.  And out of that twisted, warped court room media has flowed a story that is strangely not investigated at all by the [agency] prior to filing a public complaint against Ken Ditkowsky.
So here is his most interesting explanation below.
take care all,
JoAnne Denison
Now from Ken Ditkowsky:
My theory on why the [agency] complaints against us prosper is that fact that there is a great deal of money involved.   The value of the commodity goes down if there is a risk of disbarment.   Lets take an example.   A [entity] for being deaf and dumb and running cover for the [entity] is promised a fee of $100,000.00.   this 100,000 can be paid part in taxable currency (check and/or court award and part in under the table funds – or all in under the table funds) The under the table funds can be a discount on a vehicle, discount on real estate, some fungible, gold coins etc.
A referral fee of 1/3 is paid to the sponsor.   In Sykes [it may be] believe it is a political person who is receiving ‘nursing home dollars.’    In that case it would be a campaign contribution.   (Gloria unearth a bunch of campaign contributions to the person she suspects as being the ‘clout!’ – she has come to her conclusions from a different angle and would probably resist my analysis.)
If the political person receives campaign contributions he/she incurs no taxable income until she/he elects to pay the taxes on the funds.    As no one knows that our [entity] has received dollar one he is not going to tell anyone.   He has a windfall.    All that happens is the disabled person’s estate is reduced and no one is the wiser.
In the Sykes case about a million dollars is not inventoried.   Shut you up, me up, Gloria up and no one has to pay dollar one in Federal Income Taxes!    Let us go one step further.   Why do the [entities] fear an investigation.  A trained investigator is going to ask questions.   Questions lead to answers.   Answers lead to more questions and in the investigator is independent someone is going to have to account for about a million dollars of inventoried treasure trove.
The [entities] for the plenary guardian have filed numerous complaints with the [agency] concerning you and me.    Ask yourself why?   Ask yourself if the regulators are ‘pure!’    The GSA scandal of recent days should give a clue to the right answer!    Also ask yourself why my ‘safe harbour’ (settlement) e-mails were taken out of context and are the basis of the [entity] complaint against me filed by the [entity].   Why is unethical for me to offer the [entity] a release from the Civil Rights claim that I have against them in exchange for them just doing their jobs?   As you know I wrote the [entities] and suggested that if they had nothing to hide join and ask for an independent investigation!   We have a better chance of having the President appointing either one or us  Secretary of State
Of course the [entities], et al all might be pure, sweet and a virgin.   It might just be a coincidence that the [entity] complaints against us are given credence even in the face of massive evidence to the contrary and the complaints against the [entities] for the plenary guardian are just tossed!   As I said we have a right to differ and I will fight to the death to protect your right to disagree with me.
Do not fall down a rabbit hole!
