Re:   In re Estate of Mary Sykes, 09 P 4585

Dear Diane;

While the above case has a long, long history, much of which is documented on a blog to be found at http://www.marygsykes.com, the reality of the situation is that this probate proceeding boils down to garden variety theft, embezzlement, malpractice and malfeasance by attorneys and the court.  The court has clearly, for 3 long years, been working without subject matter jurisdiction.  In probate court, the Illinois legislature has stated in the Sodini case that in order to take jurisdiction, the court must ensure the following requirements have been met that notice on any hearing for incompetency: 1) be in writing; 2) that the Petitioner serve the notice; 3) that the notice contain the time, date and place of the hearing; and 4) that the notice be served upon “close relatives”–ie, adult children and siblings.

In the above case, the Guardians ad Litem, Cynthia Farenga and Adam Stern will admit that no proper written notice was ever served in the case and/or they cannot produce proof of service at all.  In one transcript (all transcripts are published on the blog), counsel for the Guardian admitted no Sodini notices were served upon “close relatives.”  Judge Connors knew at the time she was appointing the plenary guardian, Carolyn Toerpe, without proper notice being served, and Judge Stuart has admitted in her written notes on pleadings that it is “too late” to contest subject matter jurisdiction, which is utter nonsense since subject matter jurisdiction can be brought up at any time–even on appeal.

To add to the obvious corruption, cronyism, embezzlement (there is estimated to be $1 million in gold and silver coins missing from Mary’s estate),   when another attorney (Ken Ditkowsky) and myself complained about the lack of jurisdiction, the railroading of the proceeding without discovery–one of the GAL’s has filed ARDC complaints against us–merely for calling for an investigation.  Leah Black at the ARDC is handling that and has not given up.  The proceeding against Ken Ditkowsky is clearly another railroaded proceeding built upon corruption and cronyism and Leah Black has done nothing to clean up the court system.

See the attached “table of torts” the miscreants have engaged in.  See the attached list of missing files and know that more than half the file is missing because all of the appellate volumes are gone.

Someone is systematically cleansing the Probate files and Judge Evans and security is doing NOTHING about it.

No response.

And then when I go to court to blog about the case and the corruption and cronyism, the miscreants have the court bailiff tell me not to use or open my laptop!

When I first contacted your offices regarding corruption in the courts at the Daley Center you said you “needed proof” actual proof of corruption.

I don’t see how 70% of the file missing PLUS the lack of subject matter jurisdiction could establish any less proof to conduct an investigation.

And I know your buddies at the FBI could look at this case in minutes and come up with a determination that the plenary Guardian is spending tens of thousands of dollars on house remodeling and a fancy wedding for her daughter, whereas back in Jan of 2009 she was struggling with bills and her husband was out of work.  All we need is an asset search done in 2009-2012 for Carolyn and Fred Toerpe.

What more evidence do you need?

I will continue to publish the blog speaking out against corruption in our court system.

Please look at the attached and all the information I will fax you shortly.  This is a case that could be bigger than Greylord–what is being done to deprive grandma and grandpa of their civil rights and how the Probate court (routinely) operates.

Very Truly Yours,

DENISON & ASSOCS, PC

Sons of Greylord, born of the Illinois ARDC

We are all aware including the De-facto guardians ad litem that there was no petition that meets the Sodini requirements and certainly no notice.   The net effect is:

Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission
130 East Randolph Street
Chicago, Illinois 60601 -6219
 
Attn:  Leah Black, Esq.   RE:  JoAnne Denison in relation to Cynthia Farenga
 
Dear Ms. Black:
 
As you are allegedly investigating the spurious charges that Ms. Farenga generated against Ms. Denison, and that she and Ms. Stern generated against me,  it stands to reason one of the first items of business on the agenda of any person connecting an ‘honest’ investigation would be to ascertain if Ms. Farenga and Mr. Stern’s appointments were viable.     Holding oneself out to be guardian ad litem when the Court appointing you has no jurisdiction is not in the best traditions of the bar!     Indeed, it is a material misrepresentation of fact in the nature of fraud.
 
What Ms. Denison is asking is whether or not the ARDC was interested enough in the facts of the Sykes case to ascertain if the ‘jurisdictional’ protections that are mandatory statutory criterion were complied.     Our investigation of the docket and the record indicate that 1).  The petition filed by Ms. Troepe was defective in that it did not disclose all the close relatives, 2) Mr. Schmiedel and Mr. Stern both admitted that there was no compliance with the Sodini requirements    – an ‘ambush’ in which another subject is to be discussed does not meet the Sodini requirements, and as these requirements are intended to protect an alleged incompetent (disabled person) from exactly what has happened in the Sykes case, the requirements cannot be waived.   Indeed, if Mary was indeed incompetent she did not have the capacity to waive the requirements.  3) there is no notice of incompetency proceedings and/or proceedings for the appointment of a plenary guardian filed in the court record and no return of service is reported on any of Mary Sykes’ close relatives.
 
Thus, unless the ARDC was able to in its search of the record to ascertain something we could not find that contradicts the admissions of both Stern and Schmiedel Ms. Farenga and Mr. Stern are not duly appointed anythings – they are at  best volunteers!       The proceedings in the Sykes case without  are extra jurisdictional.     If the ARDC did an investigation the ‘declarations’ that you refer to in your letter would be in your file.     In the documents that you furnished me there were no such pleadings, petitions, motions and/or certificates of service.      As you affidavit suggests that you did a complete search the net effect is that Ms. Farenga’s complaints against Ms. Denison are not only inappropriate but ‘fraudulent!’    How such action by Ms. Farenga  is condoned and allowed to continue is *****.
 
Of course, if as we suspect that the Sykes incompetency proceeding is one of those proceedings reported by Solzhenitsyn the facts are secondary to the result!       The record of intimidation and frugality with the truth by the ‘de  facto’ guardians’ ad litem is now legend.     Just about every ‘internet site’ that exposes ‘elder abuse/ financial exploitation of the elderly’  has posted examples of the perfidy that has taken place in the Sykes case.     Mr. Stern and Ms. Farenga are feathered players in the vitiation of ‘grandma’s rights.’   Ms. Denison and I individually and as her attorney would appreciate copies of any statements that were taken by ARDC investigators  that could give any credibility to any claim that the protections that were mandated to be provided Mary Sykes and other persons similarly situated were indeed provided.    As of this moment 100% of the evidence points to the fact that the mandate of the Illinois Legislature and the Appellate Court of Illinois are being ignored and senior citizens – such as Mary Sykes – are systematically having their liberty, property, human rights and civil rights confiscated.   It also appears that any attorney who complains of the abrogation of justice is the subject of either ARDC discipline or harassment.    This creates another wonderful image for the legal profession and the administration of justice.   In fact it is the ‘son of Greylord!’ 
 
Of course, it the Sodini protections were not afforded Mary Sykes there was no jurisdiction in the Circuit Court of Cook County and the ARDC  (and its Administrator) under its own rules and under the Supreme Court rules is mandated to bring charges against the attorneys who have ‘railroaded’ Mary Sykes into a situation in which she has been deprived of her liberty, her property, her civil rights, and unfortunately even her human rights.   I have previously called upon the ARDC to join in the call for a complete, honest and comprehensive investigation of the Sykes matter.    The silence is deafening!
 
Yours very truly,
 
 
 
Kenneth Ditkowsky
 

Lumbermen’s vs Gloria Sykes: exparte orders (not on file) and Peter Schmiedel’s threats and lawlessness

From Gloria:

I can’t help but feel that God is watching us from above every time we sit on the toilet.  I also beleive that God watches sporting events, occasionally guiding tennis balls to the edges of lines and baseballs out of the arenas:  God watches used car sale’s people sell damaged goods and our Political Leaders *****.  He sees, with much angst, people like attorneys Peter Schmiedel, Adam Stern, and Cynthia Farenga, who believe they’re entitled, to LIE, cheat and steal from the elderly and disabled, or anybody they damn well want to steal from!  God knows when people are dishonest and corrupt, and like Santa, He knows which people are good and when they’re bad.  In fact, I think that all people live ‘under’ God, like a deity peering down on us like the store  manager of Whole Foods atop the customer service desk.  I also beleive that most people are ethical to a certain extent: some people make more ethical decisions than others, I think, because most people make decisions based on what he or she feels is right.  That said, if in fact the society i which we presently live has redefined ethics i such a way as to separate it from morality, there’s no doubt in my mind that it therefore makes the importance of morality ad moral behavior in our lives and in society must less important than when ethics and morality were linked.  We have substituted one of the other — or both — for power and money — and therefore, many people are unhappy people.   In my lifetime, I’ve met many unhappy people, but none so obviously unhappy than Peter Schmiedel, Adam Stern, Cynthia Farenga and their client Carolyn Toerpe.  The last time in court I paid particular attention to their faces, their body language, and wasn’t surprised to detect a full range of deceit oozing from each one:  Peter Schmiedel backed off from Dr. Shaw, his arms hardened and crossed tight across his chest, biting his lower lip, noting not even Peter Schmiedel believed what he was saying!  Cynthia Faregna, her face twisted, snarled, always with lifted brow and tightened jaw.  Adam Stern, he like Carolyn Toerpe, sit without expression, pretending to be in control, but their micro expressions are still obvious.  Toerpe’s shoulder twitches forward, her lips turned downward, her glassy stare at nothing: Adam Stern, also stares at nothing, his mouth buttoned  tight, Call these people what you like, but they’re unhappy people who create illusions of grander to feel accepted and when on the verge of exposure, like wild animals in a cage, they attack with no though or concern for what is wright or wrong, just because they can. 

On the 29th day of September, and 2nd day of October 2008, four attorneys, Finn and McInerney on behalf of Lumbermens’ the Plaintiff, and Salam and Moskowitz, on behalf of me, the defendant, had pre trial chats wtih Judge Mulhern in the Lumbermen’s case.  I paid close to $1000 for the transcripts.  On pafe 53 Salam discuses ‘secondary property damages’ …””*** to the jury would be teh cost to fix the house, the loss of the use of the house, the cost ot fix and replace the personal property, the loss and use of the personal property, and your typical damages related to that… expenses she incurred related to, you know ****”  She is Gloria Jean Sykes, me, and the home damaged needed to be fixed up in 6016, where I lived, I had the only insurance policy and I was the true owner (who was talked into putting mom on for joint tenancy for survivorship by an attorney claiming that should something happen to me, Carolyn Toerpe can’t bring it into the Probate Court and stake a claim.)  My mother “Mary” is only discussed twice during the many hours of pre trial discussions.  Page 71/line 15 – 24/ PAGE 72 LINES

MR. SALAM: We agree to the extent we’re not claiming physical injury apart from emotional distress under the intentional inflicton of emotional distress claim, so…

THE COURT:  Does that satisfy you, Mr. Finn?

MR. FINN:  Right. But then Mary Sykes is not — she doesn’t have an intentional —

MR. SALAM:  No. she does not.

THE COURT:  NO.  She’s on there only because she’s a title holder.

MR. SALAM:  Yes exactly.

THE COURT:  All right. So this is granted.

Mary G. Sykes is considered only a ‘title holder’ who filed no claims and had no insurance on the property — or lived in the property.  Yes, Judge Mulhern also understood that Mary Sykes was just a title holder and a title holder is not necessarily  the actually owner, and this is how the system works, except in the Sykes case, where PS, AS, CF create illusions in order to mask the truth that they would cheat Mother Terressa out of every penny she raised to help the unfortunate if in fact, the attorneys were looking to get paid!  But now I’m a head of myself.  In the about 250 pages of transcripts in three columns, my mother Mary is only mentioned once!  Once!  I seem to recall that there is a transcript where Finn asks the court if Mary Sykes has filed any damages, and Judge Mulhern says, “No.***” but those transcripts are now in the possession of Carolyn Toerpe.

I’ve asked CF, AS, and PS for a copy of the claim my mother filed or proof she had insurance on the property … but they can’t seem to find any documentation, just like they can’t find proof that Aunts Yo or Jo or I were served and Sodini requirements met.  What is also interesting, that I have the original Lumbermen’s lawsuit in front of me and no where in that suit is Mary Sykes mentioned:  in my counter-complaint, I am the only Defendant/Counter-Plaintiff, and in the Motion for Summary Judgement, again, at all times the heading to the breif reads, GLORIA SYKES, Defendant/Counter-Plaintiff.

But sine Adam STern, Cynthia Farenga and Peter Schmiedel barred me from bringing in any witnesses or presenting any evidence, and they also waived my attorney / client confidentiality with attorney Kevin Salam (yep, first question by Peter Schmiedel was answered by Salam who reported to the court that “Gloria Sykes didn’t want her mother to get any of the settlement funds”.   Of course, in cross, Salam backed off and corrected his statement that he could not answer the question because of attorney client privileged/confidentiality. What is interesting, attorney Peter Schmiede summoned attorney Kevin Salam for the sole purpose to have him give testimony that would give the appearance t hat I financially exploited my mother and swindled her out of the settlement money.  That means, that attorneys Kevin Salam and Moskowitz, Finn and McInerney, and Judge Mulhern were in on the financial exploitation.  Kevin Salam was appropriated $250,000:  Gene Moskowitz was appropriated $250,000.  Legal Funds were appropriated about $100,000.  Expert witnesses were paid from the settlement funds as was Purofirst.  But AS, CF, PS and CT, however, are only going after me!  Hell, Judge Mary Mulhern was in on the scam, too!

So to answer the question how much longer can the fiasco continue, as long as law enforcement, the States Attorneys Office and the Court allows attorneys Peter Schmiedel, Cynthia Farenga, and Adam STern to LIE to the court, and Carolyn Toerpe to hold my mother hostage, isolate her, drug her and not comply with court orders to turn over my mtoher’s bank statements from 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, this will go on forever.

And my mother suffers because she’s been denied access to the courts and silenced.

Yep God is watching all of us and there will be a judgment day.  I pray my mother survives this guardianship holocaust so she and I can travel the States and speak to any person who will listen that what has happened in the Sykes case can happen to any person .. as long as there are unethical, mean-spirited, lying attorneys like Adam Stern, Peter Schmiedel, and Cynthia Farenga living free lives and an ARDC that doesn’t care about the truth or the lives of innocents like my mother Mary G. Sykes.

I know that attorneys Gene Moskowitz and Kevin Salam know the truth, too.

Comments from Ken:

The spanish proverb comes to mind – a mouse would rather be in the mouth of the cat than in the hands of a lawyer –
What has happened in the Sykes case is tragic, but consistent with the greylord scandal and Illinois’ new tradition of governors going from the State house to the big house.    Only  a hypocrite can defend the fact that Mary Sykes is being held in isolation by Stern, Farenga, Troepe and Schmiedel illegally.    It is illegal because these National socialists did not give the jurisdictional notices that were required.   The August 31 transcript words and phrases of the judge are an indictment of the judge and indicative of a very sorry state of affairs.  The Sodini case points out that the Circuit Court has (had) no jurisdiction!   Thus, the covering court orders are void and *****.
Whether the ‘good lord’ judges the miscreants in this drama or not it is apparent that if America is to survive it has to honor its basic principles – liberty, freedom, and fraternity.   The specter of the First Amendment being trashed is a pure horror only topped by the fact that Mary Sykes and others like her are now routinely deprived of their liberty, property, human and civil rights while law enforcement and particularly the legal profession fiddles and defends the miscreants.
Peter Schmiedel, Cynthia Farenga, Adam Stern deserve to be ‘unhappy!’   When Law enforcement finally gets around to doing an honest, complete and comprehensive investigation they will have to face ‘man’s justice!’    All who aid and abet them will also attone for their part in the gulag.   The good lord has a much more unhappy solution which in my fifty years of practice I watched.   It is summed up in the phrase “what comes around, goes around!”   Some of your friends will witness one or more of the miscreants enjoy the loving care that is bestowed by Peter Schmiedel Jr. on Peter Schmiedel Sr as he separates Sr from his friends, his family, and systematically deprives him or his liberty, property, and human rights.  (Schmiedel, Farenga and Stern have taught their children well and rest assurred each will enjoy ****
Right now we need that investigation!

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!

Ken Ditkowsky’s Answer to the Complaint filed against him by the ARDC via Cynthia Farenga

Link below to KD’s Answer, Motion to Dismiss and Affirmative Defenses to the bogus ARDC complaint filed against him for merely calling for an investigation and emailing those that can investigate or help in that and posting to this blog! Imagine posting to a blog to get an investigation started is an ARDC complaint!

https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B6FbJzwtHocwR1lBd3NjMVVLdVU

Dear Readers;

As you are probably aware, Ken Ditkowsky and I are so far the only Illinois lawyers to protect Mary G and publicly fight the grave injustices done to Mary G Sykes, a woman ripped out of her home by a relative she rarely visited, and now lives isolated in a remote suburb of Naperville.  The daughter Gloria who cared for her mother admirably for the past 10 years–an arrangement well known in the family–has been evicted from her home, she was ordered (without a hearing or any due process or service) to stop working on her home to make it habitable after mold damage, then the court froze her $200,000 in Indiana so she is now homeless and penniless.

Why?  So the other sister can sell both homes, put the money in a trust that she benefits from!

Watch the video links shown below, sign the petitions, let the world know that you will not stand for an Illinois grandma and American citizen to be abused like this.  In the videos she knows what she wants.  She wants to live at home until she passes, she wants Gloria to care for her and she wants her property divided equally between her daughters.  She is NOT incompetent to that extent.

Kend Ditkowsky and I have been caught up in all of this because we have been working tirelessly on this blog and to inform others of this situation–and those attorneys who will churn fees at hundreds of dollars per hour–want us silenced.  They apparently have a lot of clout in Probate and even with the ARDC.

Two complaints remain against myself and Ken Ditkowsky–mainly for publishing the truth about the situation on this blog and in emails, and also to call for an investigation of elder abuse.  Apparently, when it’s the court and clout connected attorneys doing the abuse, it’s no longer abuse.  And when you stand to be awarded with tens of thousands in attorneys fees, you get to loot what you want from the elderly.

Please read the attached Answer to the ARDC’s complaint and help us out.

thank you.

JoAnne Denison

From Ken Ditkowsky

Dear Gloria and JoAnne;
Sorry that you did not receive this answer, motion to dismiss, and affirmative defense that I filed in relation to the spurious complaint filed against me by the ARDC.    As you are aware I have very sensitive to any attempt by anyone that is reasonably calculated to shut me up.   What is most disturbing is the fact that in reference to the Request to admit that I served on the ARDC that required them to either admit or deny the basic facts that they claimed were in the e-mails and which were untrue, the ARDC admitted that the administrator had no information to either admit or deny the fact.   Indeed, if they have no information they cannot reasonably suggest that anything that I said.
It gets worse.   The first pleading that I filed was a motion to dismiss pursuant to 735 ILCS 5/2 619.   This motion had three affidavits attached in support.   The first affidavit was Gloria’s affidavit.   The second was Scott’s affidavit.   The third was the ADA verified complaint filed in the United States District Court.   All of these affidavits confirmed the fact that every word that I wrote in the various e-mails referred to ARDC complaint filed against me was in fact true and accurate.    To my utter surprise the attorney for the ARDC worte in her response to the Motion that there were no affidavit attached in support of the Motion.    (This is the very same attorney who without my permission called my client JoAnne.  Then when I objected to such an obvious breach, instead of just saying I’m sorry it was mistake she tried to **** her way out of it)
The ARDC has published their spurious complaint against me on their website, therefore, I assume that they will also publish this answer, and thus make available to law enforcement and others the information contained therein including but not limited to discriminatory enforcement of the ethical rules in such a manner as to thwart lawyerly complaints of corruption.
As I state in my answer, Illinois has a wonderful set of laws; however, they mean nothing as no one cares to enforce them.    Thus, Mary Sykes has lost her liberty, her property, and her human rights, and Gloria Sykes who has stood strong and tall in attempting to protect her mother has been subjected to the loss of her property, her liberty, and intimidation and harassment.    It should be noted that every single lawyer who Gloria has sought help from has been ‘talked to’ by Farenga, Stern, and/or Schmiedel and they have either been turned, or frightened off except you JoAnne and yours truly.   The ARDC has received complaints against both of us, and is prosecuting me as I by complaining about the elder abuse/financial exploitation and the theft of Mary’s property am tending to bring the profession into disrepute.    Of course the people who are participating are ‘model and ethical lawyers!’
There is a humorous aspect to the ARDC complaint.    Even though I am a stranger to the Sykes litigation and have not filed an appearance for anyone and there is no way that I could profit one way or another, the complaint echos the Alice in Wonderland averment that I complain about the theft of Mary’s property and Gloria’s property to secure an advantage in the pending litigation.   Indeed, except for the possibility of falling down the rabbit hole there is no possibility for this to occur.
Please publish the Answer etc.

And I would like to note (JMD) that if you follow the money trail, it leads directly to the Plenary Guardian, the GALS’s Adam Stern and Cynthia Farenga, and the Guardian’s attorney’s Harvey Waller and Peter Schmeidel/Dorothy Soehlig!

I have not received a dime from Gloria in years.  I am doing this blog for free.  Ken has tirelessly written emails, letters an d posts from this blog–all without pay!

It would appear that Mary G has been fleeced–of her home, about a million in gold coins numerous other relative can verify, as well as other property the family can and would verify if given a chance.

thanks for what you can do for Mary G, 93 years old and professionally abused.

JoAnne

Title:

Watch Mary G Sykes–a victim of elder abuse, probate abuse and financial abuse who was declared “incompetent” speak her mind clearly!  Amazing footage of what the Illinois court considers “incompetence”!

Amazingly enough, she is supposed to be incompetent and her GAL’s Adam Stern GAL and Cynthia Farenga GAL have conveniently arranged a guardianship where her desires are NOT being carried out. She wants to live at home and have her daughter Gloria care for her in Mary’s home until she dies. Carolyn Toerpe had her execute a will where once Mary’s home is sold the proceeds are put in Trust and Carolyn Toerpe takes it all upon Mary’s death. Now Carolyn Toerpe has had Mary declared incompetent and is seeking to have both Mary’s home and Gloria’s home sold and the proceeds put in Carolyn’s trust. All of this has been done under the authority of the Probate Court of Cook County and GAL’s Cynthia Farenga Attorney and Adam Stern, Attorney. This proves that evil never sleeps.

Is the new Jim Crow in American’s Law Enforcement with regards to Senior Abuse and Probate abuse

From Ken Ditkowsky–all good questions for Law enforcement to consider and reconsider!

APPEAL TO LAW ENFORCEMENT
JIM CROW IS ALIVE AND WELL
At all times relevant Mary Sykes was a well-adjusted female, aged 90 years old.    In approximately 2005, Mary’s older daughter took her a lawyer.   When they emerged a series of documents surfaced that were deceptive and misleading; however, the intended effect was clear.  The older daughter was to have full and complete control over the mother’s substantial estate.
Unfortunately for the older daughter Mary discovered what had happened to her when she examined her bank account and discovered that $4000 had been removed from her account by the older daughter.     Mary confronted the daughter and was told “mom, I invested your funds in an IRA”      Even Mary knew that at her age she was not eligible to invest in an IRA and after an altercation Mary sought an order of Protection in the Circuit Court.    The Court personnel helped her prepare the verified petition.
The daughter responded with a Petition to have a guardian appointed for Mary Sykes.     Even though Mary’s treating physician refused to sign the ‘doctor’s report’ the Judge advised the older daughter to find another doctor.     An ethically challenged doctor who would attest to both President Obama and President Bush being in need of a plenary guardian – such as the older daughter- was quickly found and he executed the documents.
The Court appointed two guardian ad litem.   These ‘clout’ rich miscreants immediately joined with the older daughter in her quest and they submitted an agreed order to the willing judge who promptly appointed the older daughter as the plenary guardian with authority to separate Mary Sykes from her liberty, property, civil rights and human rights.     The entire story is set forth in the probate file of Mary Sykes housed in the Circuit Court of Cook County 69 W. Randolph Street, Chicago, Illinois.
This saga is repeated every single day in Probate and orphan’s courts across the United States of Illinois.    Alleged abusers and other miscreants are given absolute control over seniors with little or no concern for civil rights, human rights, statutory protections or common decency.    In the Sykes case all the protections afforded by Law have been ignored.   A simple precaution such as naming and serving all the close relatives prior to an incompetency hearing for Mary Sykes was ignored and two years later continues to be ignored.
Just for the record the incompetency hearing provides for standard of proof referred to as ‘clear and convincing.’    The agreement of three interested people to the detriment of the alleged incompetent is disingenuous.     Other protections most of which are jurisdictional have been equally observed by avoidance or just distorting the truth.
One of the easiest ways for a dictator or a criminal to destroy dissent is to have opponent ‘put away’ as crazy, incompetent, etc.        Today, as reported on the Blogs and the Report of the United States Government Accounting office is the rampage of Elder Abuse and Financial Exploitation of the Elderly.    Sheriff Dart (Cook County) sponsored a conference that addressed this serious problem.     The most vicious of these criminal conspiracies is promulgated by the appointment by the Courts of avarice motivated clout heavy individuals who are not burdened by the Judio- Christian Ethic that permeates American Law.    By Court orders, as occurred in the Sykes case, a plenary guardian is appointed (whether the individual needs such assistance of not) and this plenary guardian exercises complete control over the person and property of the victim.
With the aid of a ‘rubber stamp’ Judge, who approves whatever whim and desire of the guardian put before him (the judge) the senior’s liberty and human rights are forfeited.      As long as the money holds out the senior is kept from obtaining his/her final resting place; however, as is indicated in Scott Evan’s affidavit the interim between the guardian’s appointment and final reward may be a living hell!
Lincoln freed the slaves!    You and I by our procrastination have made our senior citizens the new victims of an even more vicious Jim Crow than existed in the 1860’s.       The new Klu Klux Klan headquarters in our probate courts.   A written order signed by judge substitutes for burning a cross or a worn bed sheet.
I urge Law Enforcement and particularly the Sheriff of Cook County and the States Attorney of Cook County to independently and fully investigate the Sykes case   My office will co-operate fully as will friends, neighbors, and family of Mary Sykes.
There are hundreds of people similarly situated who are literally dying for Law Enforcement to investigate the incarceration and looting of their mothers, fathers, brothers et al estates by Court appointed miscreants.    The ‘rape’ of the seniors in the United States is a National disgrace.    The ‘cover up’ is outrageous and a testament to the breakdown of the American culture.    The terrorist threat is from us!    We by our failure to root out the criminals who take advantage of the Justice System to destroy the lifetimes of saving and hard work of our mothers, father’s et al are disingenuous.   Every day that the guardians appointed in the Sykes case continue their nefarious actions is a sad day for every single citizen and another lesson to our children and grandchildren that if you have ‘clout’ it does not matter what the law says.
