From ECF: Illinois now allows access to court documents for attorneys only!!! when will the public get access???

MaryGSykes.com

As evidenced by the numerous attorney employment acts, efiling Illinois is only allowing attorneys to access full court documents filed online.

The public still has to go to the courthouse, search for and pull up documents and then pay 50 cents to $2 per pay for access, despite the fact the taxpayers own the documents, and not attorneys, not judges or court personnel.

Dorothy Brown is still the clerk of court.  She should be filing for access to taxpayers and not attorneys or judges.

Read on below.

‘I would see him sitting in urine with no shoes on’

A Sydney nursing home found to have failed 24 counts of care standards has been allowed to continue operating.

Carino Care in the Sydney suburb of Russell Lea failed to manage residents’ medication, and has had people in its care die in pain and distress, as well as from malnourishment.

However, the new government watchdog has ruled the facility can stay open until November.

The family of former resident Luigi Cantali is outraged by the decision, saying the facility’s neglect “definitely” played a part in the 80-year-old’s death.

Speaking to Today, Cantali’s daughter Eva Rinaldi said she witnessed the mistreatment of her father when visiting him at the facility.

“I would rock up late at night, about 10pm, and I would see him sitting in urine with no shoes on, on the…

From NASGA: Another Probate Horror Story in

MaryGSykes.com

From Joanne:

I’m not sure that POA’s a trust and will could have protected the Daughter in gship.

A better route would have been to do a POA, trust and will and then put the trust and property into an offshore account which does not respond to US court orders.

I believe Barclay bank, which has branches in the US and other banks might have been better.  But the reality is, every adult 18 and up should have POAs for property and health care and a will at the basic minimum.  If finances are intertwined, get a lawyer to draft up a real contract.  Do this well before any signs of dementia.

A trust is a great vehicle to protect assets in a bank account, valuable jewelry, paintings and paid up autos and homes.  If the trust is offshore, many will not respond to US court orders.  Protect your loved…

From DF: The elderly and disabled are trapped in a system without any rights–just like the worst of slavery

MaryGSykes.com

by WorldTribune Staff, September 2, 2018

At least 1.5 million adults in the United States are under the care of guardians and, critics say, are trapped in a flawed system which controls everything from a person’s finances to visits with family members.

In North Carolina, Ginny Johnson described how, just three months after her 95-year-old father was placed in guardianship, she was locked out of the Raleigh home she had lived in for 53 years and her father was taken away.

“My father was a 95-year-old healthy man when this happened,” Johnson said. “The day before dad was abducted he was on the golf course hitting golf balls with me. He had just lifted weights for 30 minutes and biked for 30 minutes.”

Johnson said her father’s dying…

From FB: Lawyer sues state after abusive guardianship of mother

MaryGSykes.com

The Lawyer Who Sued the State of Michigan

Linda Arters experienced restricted visits with her legally blind and cognitively impaired mother Rosalyn B. Arters, who was allegedly surreptitiously relocated from Florida and eventually guardianized in Boulder County, Colorado.

“I attribute her death to the fact that she was continually denied proper medical care by the guardian,” Arters said.

Rosalyn Arters was among the 1.3 million adults that the National Center for State Courts has ventured to guess are under the thumb of a family or professional guardian who control some $50 billion of the adult’s assets.

The wrenching experience of being separated from her mother by the court appointed guardian lead Arters to become an advocate for other victims. “I wasn’t allowed to care for my own mother even though she wanted me to,” Arters said.

Once under a court appointed guardianship…
