Altered court orders, fabricating attorneys, the saga continues

Dear Readers;

While Gloria was kind enough to email me the attached orders today, and of course, she had more than a few choice words for all the shenanigans of the miscreants, she has not provided any commentary for publication–yet.

As you are aware, I was in court on that fateful day, August 16, 2012 when Gloria brought her Motion to Dismiss for lack of Jurisdiction (Sodin), and the miscreants, of course, came up with 3 big lies about it 1) numerous prior court orders existed denying Gloria’s Motion to Dismiss; 2) PS said the issue was taken up on appeal and it was argued and the appellate court affirmed the trial court–big lie no. 2, I published the order dismissing for formating non-compliance–not on the merits and the best one, 3) Gloria’s exhibits and testimony were barred.

Going back to last Thursday, I believe 3 orders were drafted up on those 3 issues 1) the Motion to Dismiss (and Gloria asked the judge to add in the grounds and she did–numerous Motion to Dismiss had been denied; 2) a motion to enter and continue Dr. Shaw’s testimony; and 3) I believe Amanda wanted the judge to issue another order firmly barring all of Gloria’s evidence and testimony.

Orders one and two are linked below:

Nothing like the time honored true fashion of if you don’t like what the order said when the parties agreed, just get the judge behind closed doors and get her to alter it.  And do it messily and have two “entered” stamps on it.

Even a grammar school child can forge a parental note with more skill and care than the minimal amount which was taken in this matter to cover up the tracks of their torts by these bumbling miscreants!

And look where they are throwing their excreta?  Right at Judge Connors, who, btw, was sitting in a deposition taken by the ARDC in KD’s complaint.  KD says he got Judge Connors to admit a number of missteps, most likely the deficient Petition for Guardianship not naming all the relatives, the defective service on Mary, etc.  Further he got her to admit she knew about the Sodini case!  Amazing.  Apparently where you can find plenty of manure just back shovel onto someone sitting on the hot seat already.  Nevermind the fact this case has been dancing around in 1804 for nearly 2 years with Judge Stuart and no investigation into jurisdiction then.

JoAnne

PS–Hey Adam, good call on the preamble about the denial of Gloria’s Motion to Dismiss Non suit where it says the issues was brought up on appeal of the Dec 2009 order and the appeal dismissed.  Good job there on the frugality with truth where you had the foresight to leave out the most important phrase “on the merits.”  Good thinking that no one will notice the operative fact that it was dismissed on other grounds, most notably formatting issues and 341 compliance.  Yep, if you’re going to be an expert at misleading the court, always be sure to only write the first half of a sentence and conveniently forget the rest of it.

Of course, when you get caught, the judge might really get ticked off at you and never trust you again, but………

From Atty Ditkowsky–another call for an investigation and the reasons why

Subject: Re: Scott’s note – RE: 2009 P 4585 In Re The Estate of Mary G. Sykes – Aug. 16, 2012 court order

The ‘Son of Greylord’ is worse than the original.    17 judges went to jail and dozens decided to retire. [More than 50 attorneys went to prison also, and many more surrendered law licenses instead]. The integrity of the Court system was seriously threatened.   Jump forward a decade and take a look on the 18th floor of the Daley Center.     If the Sykes case and some of the similar cases tell us anything, the tell us that if you do not learn your history you may relive it.     Everyone should ask to see the file in Sykes and read the transcripts that were complied and sent to the Appellate Court as  the Court record.   Start with late September and Early Oct.
This is the first act-  Mr. Waller and Ms. Faranga spuriously complain to the Court that Gloria stole 1.3 million dollars.   (This is the settlement from the Gloria’s claim against the Lumberman Insurance company that was approved by Judge Mulhern of Circuit Court over a year previously).     Waller and Faranga and the presiding judge all know that they are in the wrong Court.    If Gloria did anything wrong – which she had not done – the place to Challenge the award was before Judge Mulhern pursuant to 735 ILCS 5/2 1401.    This of course was not done by either Waller or Farenga as they would have to demonstrate two major facts:  1) due diligence and 2) a meritorious cause.     They had neither, thus, a probate judge was an easier target.      (When lawyers such as appointed GALs et al. are frugal with the truth – we call it ‘selling the judge.’)
The judge entered a restraining order totally ignoring the fact that the Lumberman judgment was entitled to ‘full faith and credit” and ambush injunctions are frowned upon by the Constitution.
JoAnne this is embarassing!    The material that I am going through is what the Chicago Public Schools teach in 2nd grade civics.    Justice Sotomeyer in the Jarman case (speaking fof the US Supreme Court) suggested that lawyers and judges are presumed to know the law.    This radical concept is refuted when your read the Sykes case.
The ‘sua sponte‘ illegal injunction was issued without bond, without a proper petition, and without notice or any of the legal criterion required.    No matter a week later Ms. Farenga on ‘information and belief’  filed a scurrilous petition claiming that Gloria stole 1.3 million dollars.     This was the vehicle for interfering with Gloria’s mortgage payments and her use of her money.     The record also reveals that Gloria was barred from making repairs to her home.    As the home was in joint tenancy,  Ms. Farenga’s actions should be considered as a ‘breach of her fiduciary relationship’ to Mary, and intentional interference with Gloria’s property.     The order entered by the judge directed ‘waste’ to occur and the interest of Mary to be damages and/or destroyed.     Imagine this!    A judge ordering the destruction of the ward’s property!
By comparison that activity was tame.     We have numerous instances in which a Judge knowing (or should know) that she had no jurisdiction generating void orders – or more appropriately stated – acting in concert with ***** to deny Mary Sykes her liberty, her property, her civil and human rights.   Take a gander at 42 USCA 1983.     The lack of jurisdiction – presumed to be known by the Judge and the guardians obviates any claim of immunity.     It is expected that the Federal Court will say that the judge has immunity but,  Justice Sotomeyer’s decision in Jerman is to the contrary.   Expect an exception to the presumption –
Just for the record:    everyone knows three facts:  1) the Petition for guardianship (and to declare Mary incompetent) is defective in the it does not disclose the nearest and closest relatives of Mary Sykes.  [Once that was presented in court, the judge should have asked if all the close relatives have been served to CT and the GAL’s 14 days in advance of Dec. 7, 2012, but she did not] 2)  That Gloria, Aunt Jo, and Aunt yo were all entitled to 14 days notice, and 3 That Gloria, Aunt Jo, and Aunt Yo did not receive the notice.   Ergo as the Appellate Court of Illinois ruled that this simple requirement was jurisdictional the Court has no jurisdiction.   No jurisdiction equates to void orders and the GALs are not properly appointed.    The plenary guardian was not properly appointed.
The foregoing is the ‘dirty little secret’ of the Sykes case.         As there is approximately a million dollars that has found its way out of the Sykes estate and has not been inventoried there is a strong incentive for all the perfidy that you describe.     Sykes is only one estate, and the loot totals a million dollars more than is inventoried or disclosed.
I’ve suggested that the two GALs do their job and report the irregularity to the Judge.     The miscreants had ‘kittens’ and my suggestion was reported to the ARDC and constitutes the bulk of the disciplinary complaint against me.    Apparently it is ethically challenged activity for a lawyer to admonish such ‘august’ people as Farenga, Stern et al. to do their jobs.
I’ve called for and continue to call for a honest complete and comprehensive investigation by law enforcement.    I challenged both the ARDC and the GALs to joint with me my call for the investigation – if they have nothing to hide.     The result is a very loud silence (and disclosure by the ARDC that someone violated Ms. Denison’s copyright.)
Ken Ditkowsky
Thanks, Ken, but the reality is, when CF copies and sends off tons of the blog to the ARDC, she is violating Federal Copyright Laws.  She can send sites, she can send portions that are necessary, but she cannot send page after page of blog.  That’s copyright infringement and I am asking you to email me the tons of pages.  If your writings and teachings are in there, then she violated your copyright too, should you proceed to litigate against her.  Scott has also provided postings and Gloria and I have checked with them, and they have not given CF any permission to download, print out, copy or otherwise disseminate their writings and teachings in whole or part.
As soon as I get your materials, I will be filing a copyright for the last 3 months of the blog, and once I receive the registration, if this case is not over, I will file suit in Federal District Court for copyright infringement, as long as my claims against CF have matured (ie, this case is over and she is no longer continuing torts against me by filing groundless complaints, sending out cease and desist letters willy nilly, etc.)

The Continuing Saga of Courtroom Lies, and more Courtroom Lies and PS and AS spouting them like the Buckingham Fountain–all sparkly with colors and lights too!

Dear Readers;

As you are aware, yesterday, when confronted with the awful truth that 1) There are no “numerous” court orders of denying jurisdiction based upon Sodini notices to close relatives of the guardianship hearing 14 days prior thereto; and 2) there is equally no prior court order barring Gloria from presenting witnesses and testimony at either of the Partition Action OR the Petition to Set Aside the Apportionment Agreement, GAL Adam Stern and Atty Peter Schmeidel were at a loss for words.

I challenged each of them on the way out of the courtroom, with a fresh stack of all court orders–direct from the clerk of court with a dated receipt Aug 16, 3:43 PM– from Jan 2011 to the present to find those court orders.  They chose not to go there.

Following up on Atty Schmeidel’s explanation for Big Lie No. 1 (there are numerous orders denying Gloria’s Motion for Lack of Sodini Jurisdiction and I argued that issue myself on appeal, your honor and the Court of Appeals affirmed the trial court on the merits)–at this point Gloria squawks out the word “LIAR”) BUT in support of Gloria, I have to post:

https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B6FbJzwtHocweWo0bmRUWXl0aHM

https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B6FbJzwtHocweWo0bmRUWXl0aHM\

The order clearly states that the appeal was NOT dismissed on the merits, but due to section 341 compliance (margins and number of pages).  PS was lying to Judge Stuart.  Big lie No. 1.

Judge Stuart in court rightfully admonished GAL Adam Stern he was the “eyes and ears of the court” and she expected him to provide the court order barring Gloria’s witnesses and testimony by the next day, which of course, was today, August 17, 2012 (A day that will reside in infamy).

So Atty Adam Stern emails Gloria early this morning with the attached two orders dated Mar 30, 2012 AND NO WHERE IN THESE ORDERS DOES IT BAR GLORIA FROM PRESENTING ANY TESTIMONY OR EXHIBITS.

https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B6FbJzwtHocwcTMwYnVLdWtHdWs

https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B6FbJzwtHocwcTMwYnVLdWtHdWs

Gloria could not be in court on Mar 30, 2012 and she told PS that.  The judge told PS to put a copy of the Order in the mail to Gloria.  He says he did that.  Gloria says she never received it.  Neither PS nor AS can back that up with an email and attachment to her, so I rule that point is moot.  Both of them have enough money for fancy copiers and scanners to send a valid email.  PLUS, PS did NOT attach his certificate of service to Gloria indicating he mailed her a copy of the court order and his exhibit/witness list on 03/30/12.  I give that one a “dead in the water vote”, wouldn’t you?  Let’s see if he mocks up a lie and files it with the court.  I absolutely love after the fact, late mailed Certificates of Service.  They’re fun to rip apart.

And PS and AS email Gloria all the time when they have a scab to pick with her, but that’s beside the point.  Even CF emails me right away when I get her panties in a bunch over something fun I post about her.

Gloria figures since it doesn’t say that, she can’t do that.  But oh, my little buttercup, that is not how the court works.

First of all, if, as PS alleges, Gloria did not exchange a witness list and exhibit list, PS had to either 1) ask the court leave to file a Motion to Bar her Exhibits and Witnesses and give Gloria time to respond to that motion OR 2) he would have to have a prior court order stating “If either party fails to provide a witness and exhibit list to the other party, the party failing to provide the information will be barred by court order to put on any exhibits and witnesses.”

Local Rule 2.1 provides that all motions must be in writing, properly noticed and served upon opposing counsel.  PS got Gloria’s subpoenas by email.  He received his constructive notice of her witnesses.  But he failed to inform the court of that, instead he lied.

KD will agree with this assessment.

PS has no such court order.  And Gloria says she has the emails to PS in which she attached copies of subpoenas for the witnesses she intended to present at the hearing.  Realistically, if she did email PS a copy of her subpoenas by March 30, 2012, then he WAS put on reasonable notice as to her witnesses and exhibits and they should NOT be barred at all.  Further, if he has no timely Certificate of Service for the Mar 30, 2012 order, it’s a total do over.  He knows that.  AS knows that.

Okay, now what do the miscreants do at this point?  Well, they could buffalo Gloria into thinking that she didn’t do what PS did with a clear list filed with the court, yeah, that might work and she had to do it and since it doesn’t say in a court order she CAN put on witnesses, like PS got, then maybe she can’t.  Oh, I’m not an atty and I don’t know, she might think that.  But aw, shucks that pesky KD and JD will tell her nope, that’s not required.  What is wrong with those two–speaking the truth.  They’re not getting paid, why are they soooo mean to us?  We’re just trying to make a few (illegal) bucks!  Darn it all.

I know, we’ll just lie about it. And we’ll lie about it over and over until we convince ourselves and the court.

See the following court order entered in July, 2012 where PS replicates the lie like a bad clone in an Austin Powers movie–

https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B6FbJzwtHocwS3hSM2g0REVESnM

https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B6FbJzwtHocwS3hSM2g0REVESnM

see item no. 4 “As Gloria Sykes has been barred from presenting evidence, the parties intend to hold arguments at the end of the hearing.”  (And just when did THAT happen, prey tell?)

Interestingly enough, this order was drafted by GAL Adam Stern who is obviously the obedient b***h boy of PS!  How interesting.  AS and PS know perfectly well on July 6, 2012 that no such order was granted and no appropriate motion filed.  How convenient.  But AS now knows the court is acting without jurisdiction, so he’ll play along as the obedient puppy he is, since both the puppies are peeing on the judge’s carpet and she’s ready to give it a whiz too!

And if you’re all waiting for the piece de resistance today or the highlight, when Gloria or Scott went to court first thing to pick up the 3 orders I saw drafted from about 4:15 pm yesterday, no surprise, but Judge Stuart was off work for the day and her clerk was assigned to another courtroom and no one knew anything about getting orders from yesterday.

TOLD YOU.  And we’re going to try to order the last two transcripts too, but Gloria says she never got a quote for it.  Annie says she never did either.

Another TOLD YOU ALL.  And today’s transcript will go the same path.

Flush that toilet!  It’s right down the hall.

PS–one of the fun things AS did (because he can’t find the order he said existed barring Gloria’s witnesses and testimony), you will note he sends her a hard to read scan.  Oldest trick in the book.  If you can’t read it, here is what it says:

This matter coming to be heard on presentation of (sic) Amended Second Current Account and Disclosure of witnesses and documents and Caroly Teorpe appearing through counsel Fieschel and Kahn, Ltd. and also present GAL Cynthia Farenga also being present and Gloria Sykes having informed the court by fax that she was not appearing, it is hereby ordered that

1) guardian to mail accounting and report to Gloria Sykes this Mar 30, 2012 to last known address;

2) Gloria Sykes has until April 20, 2012 to file and serve any objections to accounting and report;

3) Guardian has to April 27, 2012 to respond to objections and

4) Gloria Sykes has until May 7, 2012 to Reply; and 5) case set for status on objections and Partition report on May 11, 2012 at 10:00 AM
End of Order;

Second Sheet (not numbered 1 of 2 as it should have been)

This matter coming to be heard on disclosure of witnesses and documents in advance of the April 13, 2012 hearing on the apportionment agreement and the court having previously set Mar 30, 2012 as a date for presentation in open court of the witnesses and documents and Carolyn Toerpe through counsel having complied with the order by disclosing witnesses and documents and Gloria Sykes having failed to appear and having failed to comply with the Feb 22, 2012 order directing disclosure of witnesses to be made on March 30 2012 in open court:  It is hereby ordered that

1) April 13, 2012 hearing will proceed at 2:00 pm with witnesses disclosed and documents disclosed by Guardian Carolyn Toerpe.

2) counsel for Guardian shall mail disclosures to Gloria Sykes to her last known address; and

3) subpoena on Kevin Salam is entered and continued to 4/13/12 at 2:00 pm;

4) hearing to proceed on 4/13/12 at 2:00 pm.

End of Order
So where does it say Gloria’s evidence has been barred?  her witnesses barred?

It really looks more like they will deal with that later–and not by barring her evidence, but giving her a chance to put her stuff on after Carolyn’s and more time to disclose.  I think they screwed up in writing up the order, but that’s their problem and not Gloria’s.  Further, both PS and CF lied to the court by not saying Gloria emailed them subpoenas.  It’s really bad when CF emailed Gloria back with an “I’m going to have better witness subpoenas than you, dummy.”

The order from Feb 22, 2013 reads, in it’s pertinent part

“3. The parties shall exchange a written list of the names of the witnesses and copies of any documents to be relied on and/or produced by the parties and their witnesses in open Court by March 30, 2012 at 10:00 a.m.”
Gloria says she emailed copies of the subpoenas to PS and CF, and it seems that should be sufficient.  She has dated email copies.  It appears that if PS and CF did not disclose this to the court in an honest and open fashion, as he should have, the order does not bar her from evidence or witnesses, it does not say the penalty is to bar witnesses (and CF again drafted a typed up order on this, NOT Gloria), then it seems PS should have properly asked for leave to file a Motion to Bar and waited for Gloria’s response which would have been “I already emailed my stuff to you dummy.”

I guess she should have added to her email “And when you go to court on March 30, 2012 don’t lie about it to the judge.”

I presume that PS and CF are attys you just have to tell them not to lie, otherwise they assume the court and any opponent* are fair game.

And the worst part about this is, Gloria says when she emailed a copy of all her subpoenas and witnesses to PS and CF, CF sent a reply email that she had subpoenaed a surprise witness on Gloria–Gloria’s financial advisor.  So Gloria knew that CF got the subpoenas and CF, being supposedly impartial, should have told the judge that and shown the court the subpoenas she received.  PS too, but you know how that goes…

Now for a joke for PS–

On the stand, the tough prosecutor was relentlessly grilling a witness about finding the loot.

The prosecutor asked, “so what did you do after finding the loot in the trunk of your car?”

Answer:  “I did exactly what any honest, law abiding citizen would do.”

Prosector, “So what was that exactly?”

Answer:  “I didn’t think you would know.  I’m not surprised.”

* note Gloria is not supposed to be CF’s opponent.  CF is supposed to be the “eyes and ears of the court” and is supposed to be fair and impartial.  Fat chance (pun intended).

Cynthia Farenga using the Illinois ARDC continues to violate the First Amendment rights of Atty Kenneth Ditkowsky

KD is an honest attorney who knows of the Sykes estate and that it contained $1 million in gold coins, according to his business records!

Attorney Cynthia Farenga, on the otherhand, is an attorney that continues to prosecute the 09 P 4585 probate case against Mary Sykes, where there has been a complete lack of Sodini jurisdiction for THREE YEARS!  In a case clearly lacking jurisdiction, she has participated directly in an ultra vires, evil plan to terrorize Gloria and render her penniless and homeless–all illegally.  She gets the judges to rubber stamp her evil plans.  She goes into the judge’s private areas on a regular basis, presumably to plot and plan.

Read on to Ken’s response:

The core of the American Judicial System is the First Amendment.     The lynch pin of American Freedom is the First Amendment and the right of citizens to speak out.
I do not know who reads the ‘blogs’ but I do know that Farenga and Stern do.    Today I received from the Ms. Black at Illinois ARDC a packet of papers that was about five inches high.    Contained in the packet were a large number of pages that appear to be printouts from the NASGA, Probate Sharks and J Denison authored blogs.    In the packet was also a letter from Ms. Farenga that points out the fact that she wishes the ARDC to stop my protests to the authorities concerning the theft of approximately a million dollars in gold and silver coins from Mary Sykes’ safety deposit box.      She says that I am threatening her with arrest and prosecution.    It is unfortunate, but I do not have the power (jurisdiction) to cause her arrest for her part in the non-inventory of these assets.      Ms. Farenga (and apparently the ARDC attorneys) that she is a judicial official and therefore her conduct and that of Stern is in the same category as the Divinity!     Being such an ‘august person’ being critical of Farenga is ‘ethically challenged.’
As is my policy, my files in connection with the Sykes file and these ARDC proceedings are open to law enforcement – including the United States Treasury Department.    The most recent production by Ms. Black and the ARDC is also open for examination and copying.
The mailing of this packet of material to me at this point in time, and the letters and material contained therein authored by Farenga are a ‘red flag!’    The fact that no investigative report has been produced that the ARDC could have relied upon to make its terrible allegations against me is another red flag.    If I recall, two red flags is a Hurricane Warning.
I’ve copied Ms. Farenga and Mr. Stern on this e-mail as I want them to know that they will not silence me nor will they directly or indirectly stop me from the full exercise of my Constitutional Rights and in particular my First Amendment Rights.      I also want them to know that their characterization of the gold coins as imaginary is wrong and a deception.    There were a large number of gold coins in the safety deposit box and another bunch obtained from Mr. Albert Biddy.    Ms. Gloria Sykes has immortalized the truth of allegation that there were Gold coins in her affidavit filed with the ARDC.     A close relative reported the same in open court.   She described the packet in which they were contained as a ‘bag about a foot in height and six inches wide, filled more than 1/2.     Mary herself made statements concerning the coins.     Had you, Ms. Farenga or you Mr. Stern done your job or cared that you were a fiduciary you would have reported this information to the Court rather than misrepresenting to the ARDC that I was lying!     Indeed, had the ARDC done due diligence it would have brought its disciplinary action against you rather than me.     That fact speaks volumes.
Ms. Farenga, Mr. Stern, and Mr. Schmiedel are fully aware that the final chapter is not going to be written by them or by me, but by law enforcement if they do an honest, complete and comprehensive investigation.     Indeed, as far as I know the Constitution of the State of Illinois and the United States of America is intact and has not been revoked in whole or part.    Similarly the tax laws are still in full force and effect and as at this point in time over a million dollars in taxes, interest, and penalties is due and payable the delinquent taxpayer and those who aided and abetted her in the evasion of the taxes due are culpable.   Ms. Farenga – tell the IRS that the non-inventoried coins are ‘imaginary!’     The fact is they are not and no matter how you shade the truth the United States of America and the State of Illinois are entitled to their tax money.
Let me make this point – I offered Ms. Farenga, Mr. Stern and Mr. Schmiedel to join with the friends and families of the guardian abuse victims and request an honest, complete and comprehensive investigation.    Instead they and apparently certain employees of the ARDC began searching the blogs for anything that they could use to intimidate.     IT DID NOT WORK!      If in fact, Farenga, Stern, Schmiedel et al have nothing to hide, and indeed have done nothing wrong – join with me and the friends, family, and persons interested in Mary Sykes and the persons who are allegedly  being victimized by Court appointed guardians in calling for law enforcement to do an honest, complete and comprehensive investigation of the Mary Sykes case. 09 P 4585.

GOOD JOB!  and Ken, I am behind you 100%.  I am proud to publish your emails calling for an investigation.  And if you chide or rib the miscreants about wearing orange jumpsuits, that IS your constitutional right.
I hope Gloria files something good in the probate court for tomorrow so this all gets kicked.  I have given her numerous suggestions.  She has affidavits, she has CT’s defective petition for guardianship.

I will be there, rooting for her and seeing if I can use my laptop, again!

Silly me, guess what I forgot to post? Carolyn Toerpe’s defective Petition for Guardianship

Dear Readers;

I just feel soooo terrible because while I was wondering why Cynthia Farenga and Adam Stern and Peter Schmeidel haven’t filed the “Motion to Dismiss/NonSuit for Lack of Jurisdiction for Failure to Serve Notice (Sodini)”, I just realized I have not posted the CT’s defective Petition for Guardianship in which she states that Gloria is her only “close adult relative” despite the fact that Mary has two adult elderly sisters!
If you have not read the Sodini case, please google it and read it now.  It is a popular case.  I would post it, but I’m not sure about the copyright issues.

Here is a link to find a case

http://il.findacase.com/research/wfrmDocViewer.aspx/xq/fac.19880726_0001145.IL.htm/qx

http://il.findacase.com/research/wfrmDocViewer.aspx/xq/fac.19880726_0001145.IL.htm/qx

You will note that this case is very similar to the present case where Mary’s two adult sisters were never served notice of the hearing.  Bummer.  The Illinois Supreme Court has ruled that it is a jurisdictional defect necessitating a dismissal of the entire proceeding.

So take a look at Carolyn’s Defective Petition here:

https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B6FbJzwtHocwdWhYX2V2WHBCWGM

https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B6FbJzwtHocwdWhYX2V2WHBCWGM

And if you see Cynthia Farenga, Adam Stern or Peter Schmeidel, you might want to ask them why they haven’t filed a Motion to Non Suit or Dismiss because none of Gloria or the two sisters received any 14 day advance notice sent by Petitioner of the time, date and place of hearing for appointment of CT as plenary guardian.

take care

Questions to Dr. Shaw, Thursday, August 16, 2012 pm in courtroom 1804

One of the things that will happen on Thursday (assuming that neither Gloria nor CF get their act together and file, notice and serve an appropriate Motion to Dismiss/Nonsuit for lack of Jurisdiction (Sodini)–which I highly doubt at this point.)  Gloria has informed me she will NOT take any actions any licensed attorney suggests or helps her with, she prefers to run trial strategy in the time, manner and rhyme or reason she develops, and CF, well, I have no idea what her excuse is.  I guess she is just hoping everything goes away and no one ever notices the mess because, well, Gloria likes the school of hard knocks and the rest of the family won’t or can’t stand up to CF and CT.

And poor Mary suffers, but that’s beside the point.

In any case, since Gloria would prefer to waste 2 to 3 hours asking questions of Dr. Shaw, I think these would be the questions I want to know answers to:

Dr. Shaw testified to a “mini mental” given in years passed to Mary, going back to 2007 and 2008.

1) can you explain what a mini mental is?

2) how and when was it designed and what was it to be used for?

2) how is it used today?

3) who uses these?

4) are they reliable?

4.5) how long do they take?  (10 min) how many questions (30)

5) how much reliability do you get in 10 min. and 30 quick questions  to assess cognitive impairment?

6) what studies have been done on 10 min. and 30 quick questions to indicate reliability?

7) are there different forms of the test (yes, there are, acording to Wikipedia, there are copyright issues–what else–with the test, and so unless you get and pay for the original PAR version, there are a lot of copycats out there.)

8) show him the wikipedia article and ask him if he agrees or disagrees with it.

9) ask that it be entered into evidence based upon new and unknown testimony. (Probably won’t get this, but it will be fun to watch them all squirm).

10) ask him if it’s true that the article says it may not be very effective on the deaf and blind

11) ask him if in the notes mary’s hearing and vision was checked first.

12) it’s easier to spell world backwards if you have pen and paper, was she provided with those?

13) isn’t it true that some people just can’t do simple  arithmetic or math no matter what test they are given?

14) isn’t it true that some people don’t read the papers or calendar and don’t care what time or day it is?

15) isn’t it true that 100 years ago most people did not read and did not know what time or day it is?

Show him the book “A world lit only by fire” and highlight the paragraphs that indicate how 100 to 200 years ago no one read, no one knew the date or time and no one cared.

16) Ask him if Dr. Patel checked mary’s blood pressure before each mini mental.  If he checked blood sugar, did a cbc or blood panel first, etc. (I think she asked these already).

17) Ask him if he knew that Mary was writing checks, doing yard work and why didn’t he ask you those questiosn?

18) Ask him if he read the blog and if he saw that posted there?

19) ask him if he saw the videos of Mary speaking her mind on Vimeo.
20) Ask him if he knew that she was told that Mary getting new hearing aides isn’t enough for her to hear properly.  She needed to go through hearing school to learn how to hear again

21) Ask him to read the part in the article on Wikipedia that the test may not be recommended as appropriate for someone that is deaf or hard of hearing.

I think that’s all the questions that come to my mind for the time present.

And what does this really mean to all of you, my dear readers?  Perhaps you should just REFUSE to take mini mentals when you get older.  They can be used as sua sponte binding proof in our august Cook County Court to strip you of your rights, let an abusive guardian take control over you and then invalidate contracts going back years.

Now of course Peter Schmeidel lied to the court and told the court that the Apportionment agreement was not a court order, but it was.  It was part of the settlement agreement and entered and approved by the court at the termination of the Lumberman’s case.

I have no idea how PS gets away with these blatant lies.  CF and AS back them up.  CT stands around like an empty headed goose and pretends she has no idea what anyone is talking about.

Blatant, evil money grab is all this is.

So my advice right now is, if you doctor is doing mini mentals, stop those right now.  They can be used against you later.  Get to your doctor today and demand that they all be destroyed.

JoAnne

PS–If you are searching for a way to prevent Alzheimer’s, cancer and dementia, be sure to take your B vitamins, C and D3.  If you haven’t had your D3 tested do it today and get it to optimal levels.  Get your supplements from Whole Foods or another quality health food store.  Be forewarned that what your doctor prescribes you might be non-bioavailable and slightly toxic and may do you more harm than good.  It is okay apparently to take synthetic ascorbic acid or ascorbate (vitamin C), it works just as well.  BUT use a lyposomal or LypoSpheric version, available on Amazon and Ebay.  Also add in a good probiotic.

I just was told by a woman the other day that her mother started losing it (getting confused, getting lost, etc.) and her doctor gave her vitamin B and C shots, got her D3 tested and gave her a good supplement (not D2–that is synthetic and slightly toxic), put her on probiotics and her mother actually “came back” in about a week.  Neurologists (MD’s) are currently curing autism and other brain disorders using similar methods.  So don’t think this has to happen to you.  It doesn’t.  Just think vitamins B, C, D3 and probiotics and make sure these items are bioavailable and natural.

Rudy B. noted it is common practice for Courts and GAL’s to isolate wards–which he thinks they have no jurisdiction to do so, despite caselaw to the contrary.

My advice, to make sure you loved ones aren’t some day isolated from you is to SEE A LAWYER and give that lawyer clear directions that you do not want your children, grandchildren and certain people from being isolated from you.  You can put a clause in an advanced directive that any guardian who does so will be automatically disinherited!  Do it.  Keep your funds in a trust with an accounting to the court and a trustor that is an honest person.

Tom,
More and more cases are coming to light wherein estates of the elderly are looted by the 2nd oldest profession.     The cottage industry that is now in place designed to strip ‘grandma’ of her liberty, her property, her civil rights and her human rights is not only well established but has the support of many of regulators of the lawyers.     As lawyers ‘rise from the dead’ and look at the Courts that foster the abuse and exploitation of the elderly and their protectors the ‘seniors’ and their supporters will see a glint of light – it is obvious that our elected representatives and the media are totally disinterested and like happened in 1936 will be too little to late to prevent the disaster that is coming down the pike.    Today, the incidents of cases like Mary Sykes is still in manageable proportions, but a decade from now it will be routine to steal from grandma – or if the family does not get there first, the predators in the legal profession will do the dirty deed.
In Cook County, Illinois in the mid-part of the 2Oth century, if the ‘old folks’  (who at that time were in their 50’s) wanted to put something away for a rainy day a bank vault the last place that you put your gold coins, and other fungible valuables.    What you did was build a secret place.     My grandfather had a secret room off the bedroom.   I was six years old when I found it.    I saw some light coming from the wall and tracing the light I walked into a room that was not for the public.   My two aunts, who had lived in the house as children and young adults, had no idea that the room existed.     When I discovered the room, I was attracted to a ‘colt revolver’ that was hanging on a hook near the door.    I pulled the weapon down, and just a real cowboy I strapped it on.    It was heavy, but that did not matter.   Off I went to play with my friends.   Fortunately for everyone I ran across my grandmother before I got out the front door.    The six shooter was confiscated and for my ingenuity I was rewarded with a sound spanking!
After I became a lawyer (a lot of years afterwards) I directed executors and heirs to examine walls, ceilings, attics, and even stairs to look for valuables that the old folks hid.   Mary Sykes had horde of cash in a Mattress.  (This was not inventoried).   A client hid $250,000 in a stairway.   Another made a false wall in a closet.    etc.     smaller sums were hidden in sugar containers etc.     The Mary Sykes generation were a generation of savers.    When a client of mine found the cache I more than once lost favor of the client by suggesting that the item be inventoried and if taxes were due that they be paid.     (I could not and would not advise the violation of laws).
The depression habits and the fear of government generated a great deal of cash and other valuables not being placed in safety deposit boxes or banks.     The abrogation of the requirement that the county treasurer be present when a decedent’s safety deposit box be opened made safety deposit boxes more practical.    (The banks at that point in time stopped sealing the safety deposit boxes of a decedent)    Thus, there is a great deal of cash and other collectibles available for predators.
Old fashioned dishonesty by financial institutions including but not limited to banks, insurance companies and the like is another age old problem.   The type of dishonesty that you describe is sometime cured by asking the same question more than one time.    An inquiry from a lawyer, followed by an inquiry from another source, and possibly a third works wonders.    Very recently I found in a real estate closing statement a 700,000 dollar escrow at Chicago Title and Trust Company.     I wrote a letter asking for the money (for my clients).   I received a letter back telling me that my demand was pre-mature and I had to wait a year.    A year later I wrote the title company and was told that the previous year they received a demand and had paid the money.   They did not claim that they paid the funds to me.   I contacted the person who the title company paid the funds to and he denied receiving them.    I took him to court, and we decided to both confront the people at CTTC.     The supervisor we talked to ran us through hoops until I handed him a subpoena.    He then found the records Houston, Texas and I had a check for my clients.
Corruption in the Courts is a real bummer.    Cook County Illinois is no stranger to it.    In the Greylord investigation by the Fed,  it is reported that 17 judges[and 50+ attys] went to jail.    With the number of complaints that are being aired on the blogs the ‘Son of Greylord’ when and if properly investigated is going to help fill our prisons.     Illinois has two successive governors in jail!    All at the same time.

A crazy exchange of emails between Cynthia Farenga, Ken Ditkowsky and myself

Dear readers;

This is indeed the strangest email yet I have received from CF.  In it she complains that Gloria hasn’t paid (about $200+ each) to have supervised visits with her mother over the last 2 years, but then again, Gloria’s money was frozen by the court going back to late Dec. 2009, so who was supposed to pay that huge (and wired in court supervisor bill).

Well, no one ever explained that one.  They (wrongfully) froze all of  Gloria’s money.  Carolyn claims the estate was broke, despite KD’s business records regarding Mary’s estate and ownership of $1 to $2 in gold coins and other valuables in a safe deposit box, so I don’t get all of this.

Read on below.

Dear Cynthia:

Are you kidding? You can’t just say “I don’t believe” you when the Sykes’ family lawyer says this was reported to him as a business record and in the ordinary course of business.  Other You have to INVESTIGATE as it really was your fiduciary duty.

With respect to the “stupervised” visits, are you kidding? Didn’t you render Gloria homeless and penniless?  How is she supposed to pay for those visits?

You put that family in a position where Gloria, a long term, excellent caregiver, was removed, Mary was stripped from her home by a second estranged daughter that complained, moaned and groaned each time she took Mary to give Gloria some relief.

Now the court has no jurisdiction, and has operated on no jurisdiction for years.

What a mess.

But YOU can fix it and do the right thing.

thanks

Joanne

A million imaginary dollars
. I cannot imagine why Gloria would rather not see her mother, even while claiming   that she is neglected/abused, because she refuses to pay for a supervised visit. Nobody would think  less of her for accepting this requirement while she is in the midst of litigating, but to not see your own mother for years. I feel sorry for all of you.

I understand that on Thursday the ‘Son of Greylord’ is going to make its debut.

when the grand opening occurs I will believe it – however, if not now = soon!      Gloria has put in her bid to play CF in the ‘movie!’       I told her that she is too tall – but you know Gloria.     No one wants to play MS!     I am actively recruiting ****, but ******.

Mr. W is working on getting 60 minutes interested in the scandal involving ‘elder abuse’ and ‘exploitation of the elderly.”    The year 2012 -13 should be very interesting – maybe we can remediate some of the damage that has been done to our society by the avarice that has been exhibited and documented.      It is time that the Son of Greylord be exposed to the clear light of day light.    I wonder when the IRS and IDR will appear on the scene to collect the accrued taxes, interest and penalties – in Sykes it is well over a million dollars at this point in time.

But the best email yet is from Gloria herself who knows how to compose the most compelling pleas yet.  And she makes some excellent points. Why is it CF and AS want her to pay for a “visitation supervisor” when she would rather pay for a “deception expert” to examine carefully CF, AS and CT.  Now THAT would be money well spent!

Cynthia Farenga and Adam Stern,

 
I just received notice that Cynthia Farenga is commenting on and about my rights of association with my mother and ability to visit with and or speak to on the telephone.  Let me remind both of you Adam Stern and Cynthia Farenga that noted (and now highlighted) in the December 7, 2009 and February 2010 transcripts are instructions by Judge Connors that Carolyn Toerpe is to allow for free and unencumbered visits and phone calls between my mother and all of her family and friends.  That the guardianship is a fraud, since there were no 14 day Sodini notices, I am certain that your need to have ‘supervised visits’ which, even Judge Stuart ordered that I did not have to pay for any visits, if again we are to believe that the court has jurisdiction to order a glass of water in the Sykes case, which it doesn’t, then you two and your client are again in contempt of court for not complying with such orders.  To wit, it is no coincidence that your client Carolyn Toerpe STOPPED all visits and phone calls too (any why can’t I talk to my mother on the telephone?), after you Cynthia Farenga were party to an email to you written by Carolyn Toerpe notifying you that the service was ‘blotched’ and that I was served with a “Pizza Flyer”.  My cousin Debby was copied on that email and told me.  There is also no coincidence that I had three wonderful loving visits with my mother, miniature golfing, long walks, games of canasta, attending church, and bowling!  At all times my mother was engaged, active, and highly competent which flies in the face of your friend, Dr. Shaw who has lied under oath twice … claiming that my mother was incompetent in 2008 and therefore she is incompetent now.  Your quest to have your buddies ‘supervise’ visits and return to the court with negative and malicious reports that I ‘agitate’ my mother and have done her harm, in order to continue your quest to financially exploit both my mother and me is quite interesting.  I do not have to pay to see my mother: neither does she have to suffer because the two of you have instructed your client Carolyn Toerpe to perpetrate undue influence upon my Mother, telling her that I have “abandoned” her and claims that I have abused my mother! 
 
I have told you both in the past that if you have such proof then why didn’t you turn this ‘evidence’ to the State’s Attorneys Office!  You have no proof and the only people of disillusion are the two of you.  If I recall, Cynthia Farenga, and the transcripts are proof enough, that when I told you that Toerpe has stolen money from my mother, et al, you went before the Judge the first day you entered the case, and asked to have the order of protection entered against me.  You were denied.  
 
I call my mother every day and when able, (if Toerpe’s VM is open for messages) I leave messages.  Tell your client to let my mother pick up the telephone and talk to me today.  As long as I can talk to her and she can talk to me during this litigation where I will prevail Adam Stern and Cynthia Farenga, she, my mother will have hope and in that hope she will stay strong and healthy knowing that I will get her returned to her home, with the people she loves and trusts, and in a community where she thrived.  I recorded visits with my mother under the protections of Rehab Assist and Rehab Assist reported to the court that I ‘abused’ my mother and that she “never asked” to come to court.  The digital recordings will be all public soon, Cynthia Farenga and Adam Stern.  MY MOTHER NEEDS TO TALK TO ME TODAY. 
 
Show good faith and tell your client to pick up the phone and allow my mother to talk to me.  There is no court order as she told the Naperville Police stating that my mother can’t talk to me on the telephone.  Nor is there any court order stating that I need supervised visits.  Cynthia Farenga and Adam Stern just want to make certain that the loving and active mother-daughter visits are reported to the Court as hostile and abusing visits.  As I asked you Ms. Farenga and Mr. Stern, I would pay for a deception expert, but you refused.  Now who is afraid of the truth?????
 
I will call my mother every hour on the hour today until I speak with her,  If I do not speak to her, then I will call for a wellness check.  Obviously, if Toerpe refuses to allow me to talk to my mother on the telephone, there must be something wrong?  Thanks for your help in making the telephone conversations — daily — start up again.  Regarding visits, my cousins Kathie, Art, Richard, Tim, Greg, Jerry, et al, they have all agreed to ‘supervise’ as so Adam Stern was instructed to allow friends or family … and I can have visits “approximately every two weeks”: it’s been approximately 17 months since I last visited with my mother: it’s been 16 months since your Client allowed me to speak to my mother on the telephone.  The last telephone conversation, mother asked me to help her.  She was visiting at my Aunt Jo and when I called to which my Aunt Jo a happy holiday, she handed the phone to my mother: my Aunt Jo gave my mother and me a Christmas gift of talking to each other.
 

Also, please find out what happened to my mother’s salvation and beloved pooch, Hannah.  I was told Toerpe overmedicated Hannah and abused her and she is dead (just like the Toerpes killed their pooch TJ years ago because they medically neglected him).  Then prove your allegation that I’ve abused my mother…. when in fact, you are protecting Toerpe from all she is doing and all she had done and is doing, you are pointing the finger at me…. FYI stop threatening my family, CF and AS.  

Gloria Jean Sykes

 

 

From Ken Ditkowsky–Why is his ARDC proceeding as obviously slanted as the Sykes 09 P 4585 proceeding? It looks like another wired, railroaded proceeding.

Subject: Son of Greylord

Every day brings new surprises.
As you are aware I sent to Lea Black a request to produce documents.   She responded by apparently copying her file and adding a bunch of duplicates to reach a production of over a 1000 pages.    It had been years since someone tried that ploy on me, but, I accepted the documents silently and Larry is busy scanning them into the computer.   (I went over every document).
My document request was very broad and only the kitchen sink was deleted from the request.   My request was an opportunity for the ARDC to fill my office with every complaint or paper that mentioned the name of Farenga, Stern, Ditkowsky etc.  If I received a copy of every one of Gloria’s complaints against Farenga, or Stern, or Schmiedel, or Brodsky there was not a word of complaint that I could utter.    Instead I got a carefully culled series of duplicates and pleadings designed not to inform me of whatever I am charged with by the ARDC.
today Ms. Black filed an objection to my motion in limine to prevent her from now coming up with the documents that should have been produced and were not.    In addition Ms. Black objected to the 237 notice that required her to appear to be called as an adverse witness.    This notice requires the production of the material I should have gotten by the Discovery (214) request – and the originals.   On a level playing field in a none wired proceeding the rule would be that as Ms. Black has been verifying the documents she has made herself a witness – In the 237 notice I noticed her to come to Court and testify.  She now wants to back away  – however, if she knows enough to verify documents she should know enough to testify.
If I recall correctly the reason I wanted the Request to Admit to be verified was the fact Ms. Black on behalf of the Administrator denied that no hearing had been held as to Mary Sykes’ competency.    In fact, if Ms.Black had done any due diligence she would have recognized that not only was there no hearing, but Adam Stern in an e-mail admitted that the way that a guardian was appointed was that he, Farenga, and Carolyn (or her attorney) had agreed to it and Judge Connors entered an order.    (who cares about the facts – I’ve made up my mind approach).    (Stern stated that Gloria or her attorney had also agreed, but,  that statement has no credibility what so ever – Harry Reid was not the author of that statement and he did not assist Adam in making it).   The Sodini protections were not afforded Mary and therefore there is no jurisdiction in the Circuit Court of Cook County and NO IMMUNITY!     The taking of Mary’s money was a garden variety theft!     (If an African American teenager had taken a dime out of Mary’s purse you would see the local police with guns drawn and panting!    Middle age matron finds before it is lost a million dollars in assets and it is ho hum time.)
It occurs to me that Ms. Black at this point in time is realizing that taking advice from Farenga, Stern, Schmiedel and participating in their efforts to thwart any investigation into the Sykes matter is placing her (Black) in serious jeopardy.   With a corruption investigation of the Chicago courts a sure thing, Ms. Black can quickly be the ‘poster girl’ for the ‘Son of Greylord.’
There is no way that -even in Illinois – law enforcement can allow senior citizens (like Mary Sykes) to be stripped of their liberty, their property, their civil rights and their human rights.     There is no way that a 93 year old grandmother is going to be denied access to her 80 plus year old sister for almost a year and no hue and cry is going to raised!    There is no way that a mother – who lived closely with her younger daughter – is going to be denied all access to the younger daughter without some type of drama.     Indeed, all the Illinois Department of Revenue or the Internal Revenue have to do is to make one telephone and they will have all the information necessary to collect over a million dollars in taxes, interest and penalties.    The fact that our friends the guardians may have destroyed the inventory that was kept in the box is interesting but not irrelevant.   On the civil level of tax collection the burden is on the taxpayer.   Thus, as Mary had a meticulous inventory of all the coins if the record was destroyed the IRS can claim two million in value.   Our guardian friends then would have to prove that there were not 2 million in value.    /// CONSPIRACY TO EVADE FEDERAL INCOME TAXES IS a serious matter.
Ms. Black has had experience with this group.    Joel Brodsky is reported to have claimed that he received advice from Ms. Black.    Ms. Troepe has a reputation of not being bothered with facts.    She was reported to have told Mary (aged 90 at the time) that the money removed from a bank account was removed as an investment in an IRA account.    Ms. Black may be given credit for *****.    (I do not remember what advice was allegedly given to Brodsky – it might have been to part his hair on the right rather than the left!     however, I tend believe it was much more substantive.)
The ARDC administrator now has three attorneys representing him but he has no answer to Alvarez 132 S.Ct 2537 or Nelson v Streeter 16 F3d 145.   These two cases are in my opinion coffin nails in the scurrilous and merit-less disciplinary complaint filed against me.    In light of the Himmel case and the clear and unequivocal words of the First Amendment it is very clear that the failed sanction motion filed by Farenga, Stern, and Schmiel and dismissed for want of jurisdiction and this disciplinary case is a bold attempt to silence my calls for an investigation and for the Department of the treasury to collect the now more than a million dollars in taxes due from our guardian friends.

Subject: Fw: forgot something…. – son of greylord

It is interesting everyone complains of corruption in the political system of Illinois and in particular Cook County and in these Elder Abuse and Financial Exploitation cases with all the perfidy on the table, with the miscreants being challenged from many sources to tell the truth,  and with the world watching the miscreants are immune from investigation, immune from punishment, and even immune from criticism.     A super secret vitiation of the First Amendment has been imposed and a scurrilous witch hunt is in full force reasonably calculated to silent any citizen and in particularly attorney who objects to ‘grandma’ being stripped naked of her liberty, property, civil rights and human rights .
Greylord was a parallel to the current situation.    17 judges went to jail in Greylord!    In recent months 2 Illinois Governors went to jail.   Scores of other political figures have been domiciled in Federal prisons.     Where is the Illinois government!     Where is the Attorney General?     Where is the States Attorney?      We know where the legal profession is – they are either hiding or they are protecting the miscreants.     The State of Illinois motto should either be changed to ‘corruption’  or  ‘shame.’
Unfortunately, Illinois is not alone and this epidemic has infected just about every one of the 50 states.     The Sykes case is a perfect case for prosecution, as by my calculation over a million dollars in Federal and State Income taxes have not been paid.    ( I am assuming that assets not inventoried were not reported as income on tax returns).      Ms. Sykes indicates that the isolation of Mary Sykes still continues in full force and effect and her family (including her daughter and siblings) do not know if she is alive of dead!     If Mary is dead the odds are very good that she was ‘murdered!’    I’ve copied the Naperville, Illinois  Police Department so that they can do a wellness check.     We certainly do not want another situation (like in the Bush case) that cremation was quickly attempted so that the acceleration of death would not be detected.      It should be noted that the pre-cover-up interpretation of the law was that if you accelerated the time/date of death of another person it was a homicide.    If your action was intentional it was a murder.    Buck vs. Bell is not the law of the United States of America, but you were never know it when you examined the Gulag that is the Sykes case.
If law enforcement does not have anything to hide let us have an honest, complete and comprehensive investigation of the Sykes case right now!   It is time for Illinois to do something to re-mediate its terrible reputation and demonstrate the at least Illinois citizens and their elected officials have respect for the Rule of Law and will not tolerate the exploitation of the elderly by Court appointed predators.

Dear Ken;

You bring up an excellent point, as the Sykes family attorney, you knew about the coins for years.  Has any law enforcement called you about their disappearance?  I bet not one.  CF and AS keep on telling the court they are Gloria’s imagination.  The miscreants do not mention you were the family attorney, you did the Sykes family estate planning and those assets were disclosed to you in an inventory in the normal course of your business.  why is there story A for court and story B for the rest of the family and attys trying to help the family?

Why do AS and CF keep on telling the court one story and not the other?   Why doesn’t law enforcement look into all of this?  Where did the money come from for what the Toerpe’s have spent?  Okay, maybe this is all innocent and they won the lottery legally, but where is the investigation?

Any FBI or Illinois law enforcement officer could easily do an asset search in minutes, get credit card statements in minutes.  Figure out the laundering of this.  Where were the gold coins sold?  What is the path of their cash dealings?

And a better question is, how is it I keep on faxing Diane Saltoun, Executive Director of the IAG, Hon. Judge Timothy Evans, Presiding Judge of the Cook County Circuit Court, Atty Leah Black at the Ill. ARDC and others screaming the Sykes case has gone on without jurisdiction for 3 years since Dec 7, 2009, and I get nary a response?  How is this happening?
Yesterday, I saw in the SunTimes paper Lisa Madigan wrote an entire article (or perhaps wasted it) on student loan predatory lending practices and mentioned numerous well known offenders–as if this is news.  Heck, unless you’re brain dead, everyone’s been clamouring about that for years and years now.

But one little old lady and nothing.  Nada.  Barely a peep.  Mary has been suffering for 3 years now, tossed out of her home, her daughter whom I know she loves dearly and whom Mary wanted to live with her for 10 years–Gloria.  What happens when CT gets appointed Plenary Guardian–she evicts her own sister?

Is this the kind, caring person you want to be for your own guardian.  Someone that would evict her own sister that has been a long time caregiver of mom for 10+ years.

Who runs a Probate Court and provides laws that condones that type of desperate human cruelty?

Are these not our duly elected officials?  Aren’t they all attorneys who know how important it is to have jurisdiction (an important constitutional right belonging to Mary G Sykes)..

You park in a bus stop in Chicago, and the ticket is $100 and is doubled in about 2 weeks and the collections efforts are relentless by the city, but dozens of faxes, emails, cries for help for one elderly grandma, and everything is IGNORED, IGNORED, IGNORED.

I have a lot of questions, but no answers.

thanks for another excellent post.

Draft Statutory of Power of Attorney for Health Care and Probate Rider

Dear Readers;

As many of you are aware, there are tremendous problems in Probate Court, Cook County, Illinois, regarding many issues that make life extremely difficult for the disabled.

While this document most likely won’t even solve a portion of those problems, at least it 1) makes people aware these are severe problems, 2) perhaps the Illinois Legislature can give its grace to some of these clauses and provisions and 3) we need to figure out a way to solve the current crisis where people are declared incompetent, they want an atty but are not brave or strong enough to tell that to their abuser–esp. when the abuser is the Guardian and/or the GAL, and we need to warn people up front to make an inventory of valuable personal items and give it to your insurance company and attorney.

Use the Reply section if you can think of anything else.

I’ll post this from time to time to see if there are improvements.

AS ALWAYS, HAVE AN ATTY REVIEW ALL DOCUMENTS YOU SIGN!

thanks

JoAnne

PROBATE COURT RIDER

Dated this _____ day of __________________ 20___

I hereby declare that I do not agree with all aspects of how the Probate Courts function in most states, and in particular the Illinois Probate Court.

I therefore am leaving specific instructions to my Power of Attorney (POA) Agent for Health Care appointed in the foregoing Rider:

My close relatives are as follows: (list all adult children and siblings and their addresses).

____________________________(name) ______________________(relationship) _______________________________________________________(address)

____________________________(name) ______________________(relationship)  _______________________________________________________(address)

____________________________(name) ______________________(relationship)  _______________________________________________________(address)

______ a separate sheet attached hereto names additional persons I desire to be informed of any hearing to have me declared incompetent

I direct that no one shall be appointed as my legal Guardian unless and until these individuals have been properly served notice of any hearing to have me declared incompetent in accordance with relevant laws.

I further direct that none of the above individuals shall ever be barred from contacting me by any and all means, including, but not limited to: mail, phone, fax, in person, as long as I indicate a desire to see those individuals.

Exception: ____________________________________________________(names)
No Guardian of mine shall ever ban a person from seeing me on the grounds it “agitates me”–as long as I indicate a desire to see, phone, email, etc. that person.

I shall not be banned from using a phone to call a family member.  I shall be provided with my own cell phone at all times.

No Guardian shall keep me apart from my family or isolated.  If a family member comes calling during reasonable visiting hours (noon to 8 pm or ___________________state otherwise), they shall be given access to me that day or the day following if I am at home.

I shall not be forced to take  “psychotropic drugs” to “calm me down” if I am not in fact violent or a danger to myself or others.

I shall not be placed in a nursing home as long as I have funds to stay at home with a hired nurse.  My house may be further encumbered to provide funds.  Any Guardian that attempts to sell my home to place me in a nursing home will NOT inherit under my will, and they may be immediately removed by any relative willing to take me in.  That relative will have an increased share in my estate, as further specified in my will.  (Note this provision must also be put in your will.  See a lawyer to have this done).  I direct that if I am a wander risk or a fall risk, that I stay in my home and my Guardian purchase appropriate electronic alarms so I do not leave without supervision, and I do not get out of a chair or bed without assistance.  These are NOT reasons to place me in a nursing home).

I direct that even if I am declared incompetent, that I stay in my home and that the following relatives may continue to live in my home and will not be evicted by the Probate Court:

_______________________________________________________________________
(you may wish to list a spouse or minor children or grandchildren).

If any Guardianship is filed against me, I do not want a court appointed lawyer to represent me, I desire the following attorneys have access to me for the purposes of fighting the guardianship and determining that my Guardian acts in accordance with my wishes:

_________________________________________________________(name & address)

if that lawyer cannot or will not act, then please contact:

_________________________________________________________(name & address)

________ (initials) No lawyer I name shall be disqualified because he or she drafted a document for another family member, engaged in litigation for another family member, notarized a document, etc.  I hereby waive any such conflict to the fullest extent the laws allow me to do so.  Any relative presenting or advocating such a conflict will not inherit under my will.  (Provision must also appear in your will–see a lawyer).

_______ (initials) I further direct that my lawyer ensure that no GAL or judge be used on my Estate who has been listed on NAGSA’s website pages entitled “WANTED!”  My attorney is directed to seek/remove any such GAL or judge involved in my case.

I have carefully inventoried my valuable possessions and have taken photos of these items and provided them to my attorney.  I promise to update my inventory on at least a yearly basis.  If they are missing, I ask that law enforcement investigate.

I herewith approve this Rider as further advance directives and as if fully incorporated in the foregoing Power of Attorney for Health Care.

How to stop the flow of money into the Probate/Nursing Home evil cabal

Dear Readers;

While KD is exploring breaking up the nursing home game in the US and in Chicago (and that’s the real reason he and I have ARDC complaints against us that are totally bogus in nature), we are thinking about quicker ways to solve the problem and stop all of this nonsense in its tracks.  Ken assures me the nursing home/probate game is a racket, tied into a small cluster of evil and greedy people that need not be mentioned here, well, because it would only give energy to this nastiness.

However, one thing I was thinking about that would help immediately, is putting a “drop dead” clause in an advance directives form.  These are currently called Statutory Power of Attorney Forms for Health Care and you can find them on a number of websites.  If you don’t have yours completed and put in a safe place with copies to everyone that holds this Power, please do so now.

Drop Dead clauses are typically found in wills where the Testator (no, it’s not some person with testicles, it’s someone who made a will), states “if you challenge my will, you are automatically disinherited.”  They’re an effective plan to stop the kids and/or grandkids, ex spouses, whatever, from arguing over a will in Probate.  The Illinois Supreme Court has said these are legal, so I would imagine the same thing said in a Power of Attorney (POA) for Health Care should be legal too.

Currently, there are waaay too many people in nursing homes because someone put them there (including the Public Guardian) and did not try to keep them at home and have a visiting nurse.  Many of these people are poor and elderly.

But it makes absolutely no sense to institutionalize someone for that reason.  In an institution, these people are warehoused and don’t like it.  We know because they complain there.  I have seen it over and over.  They can’t get out, they can’t get around, the food is bad and not nutritional (no Whole Foods in a nursing home–yet), and they are subject to being charged exorbitant fees for all sorts of things from dispensing an aspirin at $7 per pop, to $50 rides to doctors’ appointments at local clinics and all sorts of shenanigans.

The reality is, a patient in his or own home who is provided with a visiting nurse or live in nurse, as required, when it becomes necessary, will live an average of 7 years longer.  The same person placed in a nursing home lives only 3 years longer!

You see the ads for attorneys left and right crying to hear of nursing home abuse cases, and we know it is a constant dilemma under the current system of stacking grandmas and grandpas there.

I wonder if we can put in our POA for Health Care that no relative is to be “barred from seeing me” by the Probate Court (list the relatives) because they agitate me? Would that be legal?  After what I’ve seen in many, many cases, I want that.

Seniors should have the right to get agitated if they want to see their children and grandchildren, but can’t.

Okay, that gives me a great idea.  And you can email me with more great ideas.  Maybe the Illinois State Legislature WILL put these in its Statutory form POA for Health Care.

I’m tired of this nutty stuff going on, aren’t you?  Doesn’t it tick you off to no end that this has to be spelled out in your POA for Health Care?

Judge Connors ignored Gloria’s POA and invalidated it–without a hearing or findings.  But I guess it doesn’t matter, because all the orders she issued after Dec 7, 2009 are void ab initio, because that’s when the court lost jurisdiction by its failure to serve Sodini notices properly.

As Gloria points out, Peter Schmeidel has admitted that.

take care and I’ll draft something up for you all.

Maybe I should put Cynthia Farenga’s name on it and suggest SHE use it for all her bad karma on the Sykes case?  Hmmm. Gotta think about it.

JoAnne

Just Doing Cynthia Farenga’s work–more stuff I WANT HER TO FILE ASAP

Dear Readers;

Since the posts to Cynthia Farenga were soooo popular and have bumped up readership so very much, I have decided to help Cynthia Farenga even more.

She whined she had no help.  Well, I love to help and rescue people, so see below.  I will post the .wpd and .rtf files later or if CF emails me directly.

BUT HERE IS SOME DISCOVERY THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN SERVED ON CAROLYN TOERPE, AS THE EVENTS OCCURRED.

Now it’s sooo much later, there’s a lot of it to respond to.  Sorry, not my fault.

And please don’t write me and say I can’t publish pleadings I want CF to file, or some other such nonsense.  Ken’s published many a case and many a diatribe on our First Amendment right to free speech, and if you are part of the press (and this blog is, it is up to about 10,000 views now), there is even wider latitude to publish cyber junk.

This IS commentary, some of it is satire, but mostly it is to get the GAL’s to do their job.  Investigate the Plenary Guardian and remove her for lack of jurisdiction and all the crap she’s pulled in the clear abuse and corruption of that position.   Sheesh.

JoAnne

DISCLAIMER: GO READ THE DISCLAIMER PAGE

You will know when this has been filed or served upon a true miscreant, because KD and I will post a video of us dancing on this blog!  Fer sure, for real.  Come on, Cynthia, make us (honest) attorneys dance.

56.    That you were the Respondent in a Petition for an OOP in 2009.
57.    That prior to being appointed as Plenary Guardian you did not properly inform Judge Connors of this fact.
58.    That when you were appointed Plenary Guardian in Dec. 2009, you did not inform Judge Connors that the jurisdictional 14 day notice of hearing was served upon the two sisters of MGS.
59.    That when you were appointed Plenary Guardian in Dec. 2009, you did not inform Judge Connors that the jurisdictional 14 day notice of hearing was never served upon sister Josephine.
60.    That when you were appointed Plenary Guardian in Dec. 2009, you did not inform Judge Connors that the jurisdictional 14 day notice of hearing was never served upon sister Yolanda.
61.    You have never informed the court it has been acting without jurisdiction.
62.    PS has never informed the court it has been acting without jurisdiction since Dec 2009.
63.    HW has never informed the court it has been acting without jurisdiction since Dec 2009.
64.    A competent attorney would have promptly brought this issue to the court’s attention promptly after having been discovered.
65.    KD and Gloria have been repeatedly informing you that the Probate Court is acting without jurisdiction.
66.    HW has admitted that no 14 day notices were timely served on sisters Yolanda and Josephine prior to the hearing appointing CT.
67.    HW has admitted on the record that no 14 day jurisdictional notices were timely served on Gloria prior to the hearing appointing CT.
68.    That the doctor’s report presented with CT’s Petition for Guardianship in July 2009 was legally deficient in that it was not signed by a medical physician that actually conducted the examination.
69.    That Dr. Motckya who signed the CP211 form was in fact a PsychD.
70.    That Dr. Motckya who is a PsychD cannot sign a CP211 pursuant to the Probate Act for the purposes of presenting a Petition for guardianship.
71.    That you signed a CCP211 as a “PhD” when in fact you have no PhD.
72.    That counsel for GS repeatedly asked for discovery prior to your being apointed a Plenary Guardian in Dec 2009.
73.    That GS was repeatedly denied any requests for discovery prior to appointing CT as PG in Dec 2009.
74.    That you did not tell the court that GS was entitled to discovery in this case in Dec 2009.
75.    That you have never, in fact told the court GS should be allowed discovery.
76.    That AS knowingly filed a wrongful petition for sanctions against KD.
77.    When AS filed a petition for sanctions against KD, both GAL’s knew he never had appeared in the Probate Court.
78.    That the filing of ARDC complaints against KD and JMD for expressing opinions on a blog constituted a violation of the Illinois CPA. 735 ILCS § 110 et. Seq.
79.    As a GAL, the filing of that ARDC complaint against KD brings substantial liability to the Estate captioned above.
80.    A GAL that brings liability to a ward’s estate should immediately report it to the court and be removed.
81.    The reason why AS was not sanctioned by the Probate Court for filing a false Petition for Sanctions against KD is because the court is wired–or it sure looks like it.
82.    The reason why AS’s Motion to Disqualify JMD was rubber stamped by Judge Connors is because the court is wired.
83.    AS filed a Petition to Disqualify JMD as counsel for Gloria because as CF said JMD will assuredly “paper me [meaning the GAL’s to death].”
84.    JMD accordingly became the subject of a Motion to Disqualify (“MTDQ”) filed by AS and endorsed by CF because she is a competent attorney.
85.    CF and AS knew that the filing of a MTDQ JMD was wrongful and in derrogation of well established law.
86.    CF and AS misrepresented to the court they had sufficient grounds to file the MTDQ when in fact they did not.
87.    That in Dec 2009 GS had filed a number of pleadings, and AS asked the court to strike all the pleadings of GS because she was pro se.
88.    That those pleadings in Dec 2009 were in fact filed pro se and so there was no reason to strike those pleadings.
89.    That you have been informed by numerous family and friends that Gloria took excellent care of her mother for 10+ years.
90.    You have been informed that Gloria returned from California after her father died to take care of her mother.
91.    You have been informed that Gloria provided Mary with designer clothes to wear.
92.    You have been informed that Gloria provided Mary with monthly trips to the salon for hair and nails.
93.    That the Probate Court trashed Gloria’s care plan on purpose and because the proceeding was wired.
94.    That Gloria’s care plan was more than adequate and similar or exactly the same as yours.
95.    That while Gloria didn’t know the name of Mary’s one hypertension medication, she knew what a CBC was and the judge didn’t.
96.    Most people know that a CBC is a Complete Blood Count or Blood Panel and it is an essential part of a regular physical.
97.    One of the reasons the court trashed Gloria’s care plan was because Gloria lived upstairs and Mary lived downstairs at 6014 N. Avondale (“White Mary House”).
98.    CT has a two level home with a basement.
99.    The court did not have a problem with the fact that Mary’s bedroom was on the second level and the other living areas were o the first floor of CT’s home.
100.    In 2009, Mary lost 10% of her body weight due to a sore throat that lasted a week before CT dropped Mary off with Gloria.
101.    Mary subsequently required several trips to the emergency room which were not reported to the court.
102.    Gloria recognized that something was very wrong with Mary and took her to the doctor the day Mary was dropped off.
103.    That CT represented to the court that family would care for Mary during the day when she was at work.
104.    That subsequent to the appointment of CT, her daughter Kristen moved out of the home.
105.    That subsequent to the appointment of CT, FT did not want to care for Mary during the day.
106.    That subsequent to the appointment of CT, FT did not in fact care for Mary during the day.
107.    That Dr. Rabin signed and submitted a report to the court indicating Mary was incompetent.
108.    That Dr. Amdur signed and submitted a report to the court indicating Mary was incompetent.
109.    That Mr. Motckya, PsychD signed and submitted a report to the court indicating Mary was icompetent.
110.    That you reviewed these reports and agreed with their accuracy.
Each of the following questions refer to the “Doctor’s Reports” of Amdur, Rabin and Mr. Motckya, PsychD and the “Competency Examination.”
111.    You either knew or should have known at the time Mary wore custom hearing aids.
112.    Mary’s hearing was not tested before the Competency Exams were completed.
113.    You knew or should have known at the time Mary suffered from time to time with hypoglycemia or low blood sugar.
114.    A CBC or Blood Panel was not conducted immediately before any Competency Examination.
115.    That Mary’s blood pressure was never check before any competency exam.
116.    That in derogation of CT’s care plan, Mary had been put in “adult day care” for low functioning adults.
117.    That while Mary was in “adult day care” she could have been living with Gloria in her own home.
118.    That prior to this, Mary wrote checks, was involved in the neighborhood gardening club, walker around her neighborhood nearly every day, walked to and from her doctor’s office and was very involved with her community.
119.    That Mary is now isolated with limited phone calls and visits from family.
120.    That you claim that Mary is upset by Gloria when in fact Mary is upset when Gloria is around because she wants to go home.
121.    That you claim Mary is upset by Gloria when in fact Mary asks Gloria to get her an attorney so she can go home.
122.    You only saw Mary only a few times per year before summer of 2009.
123.    You only filed a Petition for Guardianship because Mary filed a Petition for a Protective Order for wrongfully withdrawing $4,000 from her Pullman bank account.
124.    That you drilled out Mary’s safe deposit box at Pullman Bank and removed gold and silver coins from the box without reporting it on any inventory filed with the court.
125.    That Gloria was also listed as a joint owner of the safe deposit box.
126.    That you have been told that valuables amounting to an estimated $1 million  were found missing from the safe deposit box.
127.    That the GAL’s have not investigated the missing contents.
128.    That you have not informed the Probate Court that you drilled out a safe deposit box owned by Gloria without her permission and removed all the contents therein.
129.    That you have not informed the Probate Court that you drilled out Gloria’s Chase safe deposit box without her permission and removed all the contents therein.
130.    That the contents of Gloria’s safe deposit box was approximately $5,000.
131.    That you have not obtained the records from Pullman (now US Bank) regarding the drilling of Mary and Gloria’s safe deposit box and provided them to the court.
132.    That you have not obtained the records from Chase regarding the drilling out of Gloria’s safe deposit box and provided them to the court.
133.    That you believe you are the Successor Trustee (“ST”) in the Mary G. Sykes Trust dated 2005(“Mary’s Trust”), when in fact you are not because Mary’s personal care physician, Dr. Patel would not sign a certificate of incompetency.
134.    That Mary’s Trust names Mary as the initial Trustee and also the Trustor which violates the Statue of Uses and renders the entire Trust document invalid.
135.    That KD and Gloria have repeatedly informed the GAL’s that Mary’s Trust is invalid because it violates the Statue of Uses.
136.    That you filed an eviction proceeding against Gloria based upon your position as ST under Mary’s Trust knowing that this trust was invalid for violating the Statue of Uses.
137.    Because you were not in fact the ST of Mary’s Trust, the eviction was wrongful.
138.    Your wrongful eviction action against Gloria has created substantial liability upon the Estate of Mary Sykes.
139.    You also turned off the gas for the White Mary House where Gloria was living in 2010, which in fact violated the CRLTO.
140.    Because you violated the CRLTO, you have brought upon the Estate a possible violation fine of $200 to $500 per day.
141.    Because you violated the CRLTO for several months, CT has brought upon the Estate a possible violation totaling more than $5,000.

142.    Because you violated the CRLTO for several months, CT has brought upon the Estate a possible violation totaling more than $10,000
143.    The GAL’s should have filed a Petition for your Removal for shutting off the gas where Gloria was living based upon these violations of the CRLTO creating massive liability to the Estate.
144.    Because AS and CF failed to remove CT for wilfully violating the CRLTO, they should have been removed as GAL’s.
145.    You are aware, In winter of 2010, PS called Chase, Gloria’s mortgage holder and told Chase the Brown Gloria House was abandoned.
146.    PS convinced Chase to “secure the property” while in fact, they trashed it.
147.    Gloria arrived home one day to find herself locked out of the Brown Gloria House, her security cameras were disabled and the security system disabled and tampered with.
148.    This is clearly inconsistent with “securing a home.”
149.    Gloria arrived home to also find that interior walls in her Brown Gloria House were trashed, rendering the property completely uninhabitable–well beyond any remaining mold remediation.
150.    Gloria arrived home one day to find all of the furnishings remaining in her brown home were put in the snow behind her home.
151.    When Gloria’s home was locked and trashed, the GAL’s were promptly informed and failed to investigate.
152.    The GAL’s have told the Probate Court the Estate has a valuable interest in the Brown Gloria House and it should be partitioned.
153.    The prior statement is in fact a complete fabrication because the GAL’s have been informed repeatedly that Gloria owned the Brown Gloria House and Gloria only put Mary G on title as a joint owner as a testamentary convenience.
154.    That all the Sykes family members that should have been listed in Exhibit A to the Petition for Guardianship, except you, agree that the Brown Gloria House is Gloria’s and the White Mary House is Mary’s.
155.    That Gloria paid the mortgages on both homes for approximately ten+ years.
156.    That you were told repeatedly Mary’s income for ten+ years was approximately $1900 per month which was insufficient for her to pay her $1000 per month mortgage, plus utilities, clothing and other expenses.
157.    The GAL’s failed to investigate the severe destruction of the Brown Gloria House because they, as well as PS, desired to ensure Gloria was rendered utterly homeless for the purpose of intimidation.

158.    The GAL’s failed to investigate the severe destruction of the Brown Gloria House because they, as well as PS, desired to ensure Gloria was rendered utterly homeless for the purpose of intimidation.
159.    The GAL’s failed to investigate the severe destruction of the Brown Gloria House because they, as well as PS, were operating in a wired courtroom.
160.    The GAL’s failed for file a Petition to Remove Carolyn for violating the RLTO because they were operating in a wired courtroom.
161.    On May 11, 2012, you informed the Probate Court that Mary’s $1 million in gold coins was “Gloria’s fiction.”
162.    At that time, you did not inform the Probate Court how sister Yolanda could confirm Mary’s ownership of the coins and how they were in the safe deposit box before CT drilled it out.
163.    At that time, you did not inform the Probate Court how sister Josephine could confirm Mary’s ownership of the coins and how they were in the safe deposit box before CT drilled it out.
164.    At that time, you forgot to inform the Probate Court how sister Yolanda could confirm Mary’s ownership of the coins and how they were in the safe deposit box before CT drilled it out.
165.    At that time, you forgot to inform the Probate Court how sister Josephine could confirm Mary’s ownership of the coins and how they were in the safe deposit box before CT drilled it out.
166.    That the GAL’s have not conducted a complete and independent asset search of your accounts or all accounts you control.
167.    That the GAL’s have not conducted a complete and independent asset search for FT’s accounts or all accounts he controls.
168.    That Mary wrote in her own handwriting (“Mary’s Directions) in Sept. 2009 that she wanted an attorney and wanted to live at home until she died.
169.    That you told the Probate Court that Mary’s Directions were dictated to her by someone else and she did not know what she was writing and this was a false statement
170.    That videos were posted on youtube.com and Vimeo.com which firmly confirm Mary’s Directions (“Videos”).
171.    Those Videos show Mary writing once again she wanted to live in her own home until she died and to have Gloria and Carolyn care for her there.
172.    You are aware that Gloria holds the last valid and enforceable Power of Attorney for Health Care from Mary. (The “POA”)
173.    This original POA document was produced in court in December of 2009 and the court ignored it.
174.    You initially told the court that this original POA document was a fake.
175.    When it shown to you and the court and it was determined it was an original and valid, Judge Connors summarily invalidated the document, without findings or a hearing.
176.    Judge Connors quipped it had to have been produced sooner–yet Gloria had mentioned it to her in several prior court status hearings and Gloria’s requests to effectuate this document were ignored.
177.    That filing a Motion to Disqualify JMD for merely notarizing a document is improper and you were aware of this at the time, but you instructed your counsel otherwise.
178.    That the notary clause in the document only stated the person appearing before the notary was in fact known to the notary to be that person and nothing more.
179.    That the GAL’s misrepresented to the court that JMD would be used to testify to show Mary’s competence or incompetence in August 2008.

180.    That JMD was never called to testify regarding the competence level of Mary.
181.    That the issues regarding the Lumberman’s funds disbursing payment in August 2008 (“Lumberman’s Settlement) are full and final and may not be attacked in any court of law.
182.    That 735 ILCS § 1401 provides in its pertinent part that an attack on a judgment must be brought within 2 years of the date of entry of judgment and therefore the Lumberman’s Settlement may no longer be attacked.
183.    That Gloria’s funds were illegally frozen in 2009, and the wrongful freeze continued to the date of this pleading.
184.    That in August of 2012 the GAL’s should have asked the court to unfreeze all of Gloria’s funds because the time to attack the Lumberman’s Settlement had passed.
185.    That in Dec 2009, HW wrongfully caused all of Gloria’s funds at Chase to be wrongfully frozen, rendering her penniless for more than a week.
186.    That the freezing of all of Gloria’s accounts in Dec 2009 in excess of the Order entered by the court was wrongful, bringing substantial liability upon the Estate.
187.    That the freezing of all of Gloria’s accounts in Dec 2009 should have created cause for the GAL’s to remove CT as plenary guarding for the wrongful actions of her counsel.
188.    That a guardian is legally responsible for the wrongful actions of her counsel.
189.    That the mortgage on Gloria’s Brown House of approx. $200,000 is likely more than the home is worth.
190.    That it is not worth partitioning this house.
RESPECTFULLY SUBMITTED,

Subject: Re: Joanne Denison’s Contrived “Motion to Dismiss/Non Suit for Lack of Sodini Jurisdiction”

The hard truth is this: Cynthia Farenga and Adam Stern agreed to disregard, cover-up, destroy the ‘truths’ in the Sykes case in order to comply with an agreement between them and Toerpe and Toerpe’s attorneys for financial gain. ” [Gloria’s comments, Ken’s reply]
taking these words out of the context of the sentence that they were in, these words could be defamatory.    (Let us ignore innocent construction and the opinion arguments -also let us ignore the fact that Farenga and Stern are public officials – the spurious ARDC complaint against me verifies that statement)    Can we prove these words?    Yes, we can do it by strong circumstantial evidence reciting the following facts:
1) Cynthia Farenga is obsessed by who is getting paid and what.
2) Cynthia Farenga squeezes the buffalo on the nickel so hard that the Animal Rights groups are suing her for cruelty to animals, however, she has filed no fee petition.
3)  Cynthia Farenga knows all about the million dollars in assets that we taken from the safety deposit boxes and the assets that we taken from the house and has not reported the same to the Court.   At the very least Farenga was aware of the serious allegation and could have verified the same with a scintilla of effort, yet she never reported the same as an allegation.
4) Cynthia Farenga refuses to join in an investigation of the Sykes case, ergo she and Stern are hiding something.
If you need more proof of a cover-up,  Brodsky suddenly turned on Gloria when she refused to sign a ‘settlement agreement’ that essentially was a concession agreement.   He was so upset that he went around trying to recruit family members to join in reporting to the Court that Gloria was bi-polar.    I suggested that Gloria would have been proven more than bi-polar if she had signed the settlement agreement.   That of course earned me a bunch of complaints to the ARDC.
Members of choir – like it not it is my opinion  – that  I would not be surprised if at some point in time Farenga or Stern confirms the ‘hard truth’ of the statement in brackets below:.
[WHAT WE NEED IS AN HONEST, COMPLETE, AND COMPREHENSIVE INVESTIGATON BY LAW ENFORCEMENT SO THE OBJECTIVE TRUTH WILL BE ON THE TABLE FOR ALL TO SEE, HEAR AND PONDER.    JoAnne Denison called for Cynthia Farenga to do the ‘right thing’ and inform the court that the Sodini protections were not afforded Mary Sykes and therefore as matter of law the Probate Court had no jurisdiction to appoint Troepe as plenary guardian or to do some of the terrible things that it has done.]

ARDC Petition to BAN Gloria as a witness in Ken Ditkowsky’s case against ARDC

As hard as it to believe, LEA BLACK has filed a petition to BAN GLORIA from testifying at Ken’s hearing against the ARDC. And the ridiculous reason they gave was that Gloria has been “uncooperative” in regards to setting up a time and place for her deposition even though Gloria attempted to appease Lea Black by renting a suite and agreeing to convert one room into a conference room among many other accommodations. The basis of this

Ken puts in eloquently about what the ARDC has essentially done by filing this petition:

I know it is difficult to believe that the ARDC filed a petition to punish me for complaining about judicial corruption in Cook County and in particular:
 
1) objecting to Stern, Farenga, Schmiedel et al denying Mary Sykes (a senior citizen age 90 plus) of her rights, privileges and immunities guaranteed under the United States Constitution
 
2) Circuit Court Judges and court appointed lawyers ignoring the jurisdictional limitations of the Courts and in particular those designed by the legislature to protect senior citizens.   A judge has a duty to determine if he/she has jurisdiction.   In the Sykes case it appears that (using the words of Adam Stern) ‘it is a technicality!’  I just hope that at some point in time Adam Stern, Cynthia Farenga et al have to personally address that technicality.
 
3) Objecting to the non-inventory of over a million dollars in assets belonging to Mary Sykes!    LG asked Mr. Evans if he considered that theft!   It makes no difference if Mr. Evans considers it theft or not!   Theft is unauthorized control and except in these probate cases that is unauthorized control    It is also a taxable event.    I calculate that with the taxes due, interest and penalties at this point in time the conspirators owe in excess of a million dollars to the United States of America.  (Mr. Dubow – the accountant informs me that the interest is 5per cent per month up to 25% of the tax due.    The fraud penalty – for the breach of fiduciary relationship and the concealment – is 50%.    The tax is 30%.  Ms Toerpe should be sleeping very well at night knowing that at this point in time she and the conspirators to evade the legitimate income taxes owed to the United States of America can help Mr. Obama make a dent in the debt!”
 
Below is the motion filed by the ARDC. Feel free to laugh at the ridiculousness of the basis of their motion. I have also attached Ken’s response to the motion. It should not be long from now that we receive news that the ARDC’s motion BE DENIED if the justice system even has a drop of justice in it.
