From Joel Handler who was not amused by lack of jurisdiction in 1804

MaryGSykes.com

As you are aware, an order was entered by Judge MacCarthy which rendered Joel Handler’s $4,000 judgment against Janie “unenforceable.”

When Atty Carrie Fung of the OPG was told by Judge O’Brien in 1401 that she was to give the key to storage to Atty Handler so he could assess and manage these assets–and he is a judgment creditor, it seems she did not like the order of Judge O’Brien, so Carrie Fung went and filed a 27 page 150 paragraph motion in court room 1804 to invalidate are more than 2 year old judgment that Atty Handler had obtained in June of 2014.

Hmmm.  Interesting.

Obviously I have to file objections to the entry of a void ab initio order (void from the outset) because I don’t want it to appear my client is condoning such behavior (and liability), but Mr. Handler says it well to Ms. Fung–what on…

From the front page of the NY Times–A dying Father’s last wish

MaryGSykes.com

This is a great article that does a wonderful job pointing out of the many fair and just issues that this blog was created to address–allowing seniors to die in their own homes instead of nursing homes.

I know that this isn’t the only blog posting that is entitled “A Father’s Last Dying Wish” but I am very glad that Joseph Andrey’s daughter, Stephanie was able to get some great publicity.  I wish her well and all the others that are trying to keep parents out of nursing homes when the parents never wanted to be there in their final days. Good luck to her.

Rauner’s nursing home deals may cost him

MaryGSykes.com

According to this article in the Chicago Tribune, before purchasing a nursing home, Rauner’s health care company had only $150,000 in total declared liabilites.

After some years of mismanagement his liabilities rose exponentially:

Jannotta, GTCR and other onetime owners of Trans Healthcare are defendants in the bankruptcy case, accused by plaintiffs’ attorneys of selling the chain in a complicated transaction to dodge liability for what grew to more than $1 billion in tentative wrongful death judgments secured by the estates of several nursing home patients. GTCR attorneys argue that the firm was far removed from the operation of the nursing homes in questionand contend the plaintiffs’ lawyers are on a fishing expedition to extract payouts from deep-pocketed businesses.

And perhaps that is the problem, everyone is “far removed” from taking proper care of nursing home patients.

Attorneys that are ISBA Pro Bono partners

MaryGSykes.com

As most of you know, I am completely dedicated to pro bono work and promoting it among attorneys. I believe cases should be taken on the merits and not on basis of money alone.  I know we all need to pay rent, utilities, staff and so forth, but there are many people with severe violations of human and civil rights, and loss of liberties too great to ignore.

I do believe that the courts should be provided with Public Defenders, according to income, where the loss of all money and housing is in question.

so the ISBA has an online pledge and I have taken it and I have also posted a bio on their website that features humanitarian legal services.

I hope other attorneys are inspired to do this and that the public encourages attys to do more pro bono or low cost legal work

the site:

Blogging at the IARDC – Trial of Bob Holstein

To: kenneth ditkowsky <kenditkowsky@yahoo.com>
Subject: Re: Robert Holstein’s trial
Date: Sep 24, 2014 1:21 AM
Dear Ken;

Robert Holstein was charged in two counts by the ARDC.  The first one was for not paying a law firm a $24,000 judgment and the second was not disclosing he had a credit card in a Citation Judgment proceeding.

But the trial determined the credit cards were not his, they were his girlfriend’s.  He continued to operate his law firm, paying bills, but not paying himself and did not pay the $24,000 judgement, tho he did repeatedly call the attorney and attempt to work out a payment plan.  The law firm refused any payment plan.

Bob Holstein’s position was, he had to pay the immediate debts of the law firm, –phone, rent, utilities, salaries, in order to survive.  I believe the Citation forms say a debtor can keep…

The Rape of the Ward

The assault on the First Amendment that has been promulgated in these guardianship cases by the Courts, the attorney regulators, the media, and others is particularly reprehensible.    It not only aids and abets the railroading of many seniors and disabled people into guardianships wherein they are segregated from their families, stripped of their liberty rights and their prior rights as they savings are redistributed to court appointed favorites.    These are the elements of elder cleansing when coupled with the assisted involuntary suicide of the ward.    The Code of Silence has allowed thousands of disabled and senior citizens to be ‘elder cleansed’ and their estates ravaged.     Billions of dollars have found their way from these incompetency estates to the miscreants and the other beneficiaries of this patronage.
What is most surprising is the fact that the tax man (Department of the Treasury/Illinois Department of Revenue) has…

From Judy Ditkowsky–what is really going on with the drug Cartels in Mexico

MaryGSykes.com

Read the article and you will see direct parallels to what is going on in probate, the zoning board, hospitals, senior centers, “in home” and “in institution” senior/disable servicing–you name it.

Direct Parallels.

1) Don’t fight with the authorities, instead recruit them (the higher the better) to be your enforcers.  In the elder cleansing model, that means recruit certain doctors, tied in agencies (you can never get away from them, they’re on secret lists) be sure all the lawyers are ex-states attorneys or ex-Office of Public guardian so no matter what they do, no one will prosecute their buddies or alumni, also keep them on secret lists.

2)  give the appearance of “all is well”, discount deaths as being something else or for the good of keeping the community safe.  The deaths of Lydia Tyler, DB, Steven Jaycox, Alice Gore will never be investigated because the attorneys involved (“the enforcers…
