While I think you all know that in the US we have the right to association, the right to have people draft up letters and emails for us, and the right to associate with them, the control freak attitude of the ARDC does not acknowledge those rights.
For those of you that forgot your US history, it was commonplace in the colonies for the British to sue people, throw them in prison, take away rights and liberties–all without due process of law. They would also impose gag orders and orders against associating with rebels who would organize citizen protests.
All of that was simply disposed of with the drafting and implementation of the US Constitution in 1790 and more recently enforced by the Illinois Consitution.
Apparently the ARDC has not read these plainly worded doucments. See the incredulous letter I recently received and my/our response to it. Yes, I still talk with, email and associate with KDD even though the ARDC wrongfully disqualified him as my counsel. I can do this because the US Constitution says that I can.
Note how our Constitutional rights, when understood protect our basic human and civil rights. These are not mere writings on an ancient piece of paper but they serve us well even today — and even against such august and venerable attorneys that spend their work hours at the ARDC.
Once again, KDD and I are calling for honest, ethical and complete investigations of the Sykes, Gore, Tyler, Bedin, Wyman, Spera cases and that charges by the ARDC brought against us only to protect the honeypot of Probate be dropped.

Re: Complaints against KDD and myself, and the Sykes, Gore, Tyler and Wyman Complaints
Dear Attys Larkin, Opryczek and Haspel;
This is in response to your recent letter I received in the snail mail late yesterday.
Let me set the record straight for you. As a citizen I have the right to the attorney of my choice. Because of your ethically challenged and the improper actions initiated by you, Ken and I have been wrongfully forced to petition the Supreme Court of Illinois for a supervisory order. Mr. Ditkowsky is my attorney and my friend and confidant in relation to the matter before the Supreme Court of Illinois. If I want to call him, email him, visit with him, have lunch with him–that is my right and his right also. It’s in the US constitution, if you have not read it recently, it was a fine document carefully drafted to alleviate the long sufferings of people under the highly oppressive monarchy of England. These drafters knew their oppressors and how they rip apart society causing great harm and suffering to a land of people without rights. We no longer have court in the US that are secret courts, secret off with your head courts, gag orders preventing us from disclosing certain topics, restraining orders preventing our association with other honest citizens to fight an oppressive government in a civilized orderly manner. Because if we do not have those rights, society otherwise deteriorates into civil war and lawlessness.
Telling me that I adopt KDD’s writings, that I include him in correspondence and my cc’s and insisting that I not associate with him smacks of over reaching and restraints not imposed by our venerable US and Illinois constitutions. It’s bullying, pure and simple.
Even if KDD is disqualified, all that means is that he cannot appear in court and speak for me (he can be my friend in the galley and watch), he can in fact write for me, but I have to sign the pleading when filed and review it. He cannot speak to you on my behalf. But if I adopt and approve of his writings, I can then send them to you. The reality of the situation is, he does more to help the ARDC understand and appreciate the law than any of you and the other ARDC attorneys combined.
This morning Mr. Ditkowsky drafted and sent to the ARDC a Himmel complaint in which you all are the attorneys who are referred to for discipline. The reason that you all are involved is the fact that pursuant to Rule 137 prior to bringing the disciplinary action against me the attorney for the ARDC was required to do some kind of investigation. It is has been called to your attention that the Probate Division had no jurisdiction in the Sykes and therefore the assertions made against me were totally meritless. The statement that I made any untrue averment was totally false and a direct violation of Rule 137 and a demonstration of your ethically challenged behavior. Indeed, if you had done a scintilla of due diligence you would have discovered that 1) you are intentionally violating not only my First Amendment Rights, but 2) my fifth, sixth and 14th Amendment Rights as well. The Federal Constitution plainly and directly prohibits the action that you are prosecuting.
All that aside, even if the ARDC has jurisdiction the averments made against me are not sustainable and without merit and you either know or should know that fact. Ergo, this morning Mr. Ditkowsky filed a Himmel complaint against you all and forwarded to the Administrator a disk that reproduced by scanning the first four volumes of the Sykes common law record. The record clearly demonstrates that the Supreme Court and Legislative jurisdictional mandate are being continuously ignored by you. I respect you, and therefore I am sending you the FRCP 11 ‘safe harbor’ letter demanding that you immediately dismiss the meritless proceedings filed against me. (Mr. Ditkowsky is not so generous – he is requesting that the United States of America investigate and prosecute those persons who have violated my civil rights, Mary Sykes’ civil rights, Gloria Sykes’ civil rights and the Civil Rights of all persons similarly situated–including Josephine DePietro and Yolanda and Kathie Bakken who are continuously and vigorously being isolated from a family member they held dear and visited frequently and called on a near daily basis).
Please be advised that the fact that you are an attorney employed by the State of Illinois as part of the ARDC staff does not insulate you from your responsibilities as a lawyer and as an officer of the court. The pending petition is not privileged as you and the Administrator are both aware that there was no delegation under American law to you or the ARDC to regulate my First Amendment Rights. Indeed in the New York Times vs. Sullivan case the specific prohibition is clearly stated. In the recent Alvarez and Brown cases the prohibition is reiterated and in Hunter the Virginia Supreme Court explains very clearly that ‘content’ based speech is protected. Let me make it very clear – this is not a ‘game’ and the stakes are very high. Mary Sykes has had her Constitutional Rights, civil rights, property rights and human rights taken from her by the Attorneys who have promulgated these complaints against me that the ARDC is pursing. The attempt to silence me is certainly not authorized by any delegation to the ARDC and clearly a violation of 42 USCA § 1983. I call upon you as an alleged ethical and honest attorney to comply with your oath taken when you were sworn in as an attorney and your responsibilities inherent to your role as an attorney and DO THE RIGHT THING. Dismiss the ARDC actions against KDD and myself and conduct a complete, thorough and honest investigation of all miscreants involved in jurisdictionless proceedings in Probate–Sykes, Wyman, Taylor, Gore. Conduct a thorough investigation as to why Atty Sharon Rudy swiped $150,000 from join accounts held in the names of both Dominick Spera and his mother, leaving Dominic on the streets for over a year–sleeping in the park and on the streets of Rockford, eating out of trash cans, all the while SRR swiped $150,000 with impunity and unnoticed out of joint accounts by the GAL Peter Savitsky or Judge Fabiano. How does this happen in the US? A relatively well off gentleman is rendered homeless and penniless by the Rockford Probate Court system. I just pointed this out to Atty SRR and got him $5,000 “until next month” when she has all the facts and records. Disgusting.
You challenge myself and KDD with lying, yet all I have found in the Probate system when people complain via my blog is just what is stated, uninvestigated garden variety theft, embezzlement, conversion, (elder financial exploitation) isolation (elder abuse), lack of jurisdiction–all attorneys acting badly and judges acting badly and corruption. A clear deviation from the laws, cases, thoughts and opinions that is in any sense of the concept of justice.
The Probate system is so utterly devoid of justice in some cases, I have people “secretly” calling me with verified inventories in the hundred of thousands, homes sold, forced nursing home placements, they escape and live in boarding and rooming houses, hiding from the Probate court. They call me and engage in complicated, lucid thoughts clearly establishing competency. They talk of stories of court sanctioned murder plots. Of course, I would never believe them EXCEPT FOR THE FACT, I have found instances of court sanctioned murder. Forced nursing home placements, slapping DNR’s and holding people down to inject them with strong psychotropic drugs so they start and dehydrate, plus the sales of expensive homes–all to go to probate atty and tied in servicing fees.
You might think you can shut these people up and their relatives, but you cannot. There is the internet and they post not just on my blog but a myriad of other long established blogs. I bring no disrepute to the legal profession with my blog because all of the miscreants I have mentioned have been long and well established as “miscreants” on other probate blog sites. The difference is, I can help explain court procedures and methods to people who really need this advice and cannot afford it.
I hope you will consider all of this seriously and get some relief for these probate victims.
Quit you job and work for me. You will not have money or insurance, but you will have ethics and a great sense of self esteem. Saving the world is the highest calling anyone can undertake.
Working at the ARDC and being told to prosecute and persecute honest attorneys is no way to live. It only ends in abject misery.
cc: I will also deliver to you soon paper copies of everything because you insist on killing trees and putting as large a footprint as you can on the environment. However, please be aware, if I email or fax you THAT IS ONLY CC SERVICE to ensure you get the papers I mail or deliver. IT IS NOT THE ACTUAL SERVICE.
I will continue to deliver/mail service you with cc’s via fax and email.
So please do not write me and tell me I am serving you by email/fax. That is only your cc. You WILL get everything on paper and just let me know if you don’t get it and I will resend over more paper.
