Volunteers and donations needed!

If you want to help fight corruption in Cook County and the US, here is what we need:

  1.  Volunteer attorneys, paralegals and court corruption victims.  Help other pro se people.  As long as you don’t charge and just help people, you don’t run afoul of the licensed bar rules.  Try to take cases from the poor and indigent, like I do.  Start a charity or use mine, no problem.  If you have access to Westlaw and Lexis or even Fastcase, all the better.
  2.   Copy paper.  I go through a lot of copy paper. So drop off any packs you have or any left overs from packs.  We run thru paper like bankshees.
  3.  I just signed up at  Donate monthly.  You can do this anonymously.
  4.   Moving assistance.  I am looking at moving to a better, nicer office space that is brand new with state of the…

From FB: New film exposes civil rights violations in Guardianship

New Film Exposes Nationwide Abuses of Seniors and People With Disabilities, Calls for Reforms in Guardianships

“Pursuit of Justice” is a film (36 minutes) by Greg Byers which tracks the advocacy of civil rights attorney Thomas F. Coleman, clinical psychologist Nora J. Baladerian, and a growing network of activists as they travel the country promoting reforms in adult guardianship proceedings involving seniors and adults with various disabilities. The documentary is sponsoredby Spectrum Institute.

Like the recent Oscar-nominated film “Edith+Eddie”, “Pursuit of Justice”shows how guardianships can be manipulated to abuse the rights of vulnerable adults. While “Edith+Eddie” involves an interracial couple in their nineties, “Pursuit of Justice” focuses on adults of various ages who have different types of disabilities.

Stephen and Greg are autistic men in their twenties. Mickey, in his thirties, had an intellectual disability. Kay, in…

From KKD–What is testi-lying? Apparently the police know all about this term–you take the truth and stretch it out and out and out, until the truth is lightyears away.

From  Joanne:
Now you would think that with all the surveillance cameras, cell phones, dash board cams, body dams, the incidence of anyone lying would be practically nil.
Apparently not for the police.  Now studies show that psychopaths are drawn to jobs like police, judge, lawyer and we should be testing all those individuals first with a PET brain scan, but apparently no one cares that our professions are packed with lying, cheating scum the tax payers support.
For a new great video and series on psychopathy, see this lady.  She explains in detail how these people infiltrate, take control and then eventually ruin an entire organization.
We see that with judges at the Daley center, with the ARDC.  Apparently I am told that the JIB contains the names of a number of individuals that have the same last names as many judges on the bench and that seems to…

From KKD: Void Judgments, Larkin perfidy, etc.

I received an e-mail that I responded to with my comments in red.    I am forwarding the words and phrases as the problem is brought forward in a very straight forward manner, to wit:

From FB: Right to appear pro se, while not unconstitutional, is an important right in the US

In a criminal case, the 8th and 14th amendment confer the right of a defendant to appear pro se.  However, Sec. 35 of the Judiciary Act of 1789 confirms the right of a civil litigant to appear pro se.

From O’Reilly v. NY Times  692 F.2d 863 (C.A.2 (N.Y.), 1982):

We start with the proposition that the right to self-representation in civil cases conferred by Sec. 35 of the Judiciary Act of 1789, although not enjoying the constitutional protection subsequently afforded to the right of self-representation in criminal cases, Faretta v. California, 422 U.S. 80695 S.Ct. 252545 L.Ed.2d 562 (1975), is a right of high standing, not simply a practice to be honored or dishonored by a court depending on its assessment of the desiderata of a particular case. As the Court said in Faretta, supra, 422 U.S. at 830 n. 39, 95 S.Ct. at…
