From FC: Did the Illinois Supreme court treat bio fathers as 2nd class citizens?

MaryGSykes.com

So I read this, and I thought, maybe those crazy father’s rights cases do have a point.

A single mother brings home baby from the hospital and she has constitutional rights.

Dad has to get a DNA test and even then his rights are conditional?

Why the difference?

From FB: Judge actually awards sanctions against lying DCFS workers who lied to remove kids and place them in abusive foster care system

MaryGSykes.com

http://www.fox5atlanta.com/news/judge-orders-largest-sanctions-ever-against-cps-for-lying-to-remove-kids?fbclid=IwAR2UJF6jlu3o3qJ9_VdatNVk-y6frmxXq_gJpGFRdR6O9p4N4I9G_iYde-4

 – “This is by far the largest sanction I’ve ever been a part of or ever heard of being imposed against CPS,” said attorney Dennis Slate.

Family Law Judge Mike Schneider says he would have made Child Protective Services pay even more but didn’t want to burden taxpayers.

The judge found CPS case worker Levar Jones and his supervisor Niesha Edwards lied in order to take Michael and Melissa Bright’s 2-year-old daughter and 5-month-old son away from them.

“I think people would be really concerned if they actually sat here and listened to all of these days worth of CPS covering up the lies they told,” Slate said.

The Brights’ 2-year-old daughter ended up being abused in foster care.

“We’ve got a little girl with a black eye…

Suburban account manager who stole from elderly clients sentenced to 4 years in prison

Clifford WardDaily Southtown

A retired nurse in her 90s testified how her questions helped uncover thefts committed by a west suburban financial institution account manager who was sentenced Monday to four years in prison.

Christine Lang, 48, of Summit, was sentenced Monday on a count of felony theft in DuPage County court. The former account manager at the Trust Company of Illinois in Downers Grove, stole $328,000 from the accounts of three elderly clients and spent much of the money at riverboat casinos, DuPage County prosecutors said.

One of the victims, a woman in her 90s, testified at Lange’s sentencing hearing that she called Lange in 2016 when TCI failed to mail her quarterly statements. Lange promised to send a statement but failed to do so, the woman said. TCI finally mailed her a…

Medicare Takes Aim At Boomerang Hospitalizations Of Nursing Home Patients

Deborah Ann Favorite sits in her Los Angeles apartment last month. Favorite’s mother died after a lapse in communication about the need to resume her thyroid medication. (Heidi de Marco/KHN)

“Oh my God, we dropped her!” Sandra Snipes said she heard the nursing home aides yell as she fell to the floor. She landed on her right side where her hip had recently been replaced.

She cried out in pain. A hospital clinician later discovered her hip was dislocated.

That was not the only injury Snipes, then 61, said she suffered in 2011 at Richmond Pines Healthcare & Rehabilitation Center in Hamlet, N.C. Nurses allegedly had been injecting her twice a day with a potent blood thinner despite written instructions to stop.

“She…

FERRIER FILES: Do criminals have more rights than parents in Tennessee?

(Fox 17 News)

FERRIER FILES: Do criminals have more rights than parents in Tennessee?

And even if you do absolutely nothing wrong, your children can be taken from you. It may sound like a ridiculous question but not when you consider what happened to a Williamson County, Tennessee, mom.

It all started when Tori’s 3-year-old son told her something inappropriate happened to him when he was with their father. The couple is divorced.

Tori followed the law and reported it to DCS.

“I was interrogated for two to three hours with no…

From JP: Interesting case quotes on Fraudulent Concealment, Fundamental Liberties, and Civil Rights

MaryGSykes.com

FRAUDULENT CONCEALMENT

  1. A few of the definitions of “fraudulent concealment” are discussed in: Woods v. Davis, 11 U.S. 271 (1812) quoting,

“Party having superior knowledge who takes advantage of another’s ignorance of the law to deceive him by studied concealment or misrepresentation can be held responsible for that conduct. Fina Supply, Inc. v. Abilene Nat. Bank, 726 S.W.2d 537, 1987. Knowing failure to disclose material information, necessary to prevent statement from being misleading, or making representation despite knowledge that

it has no reasonable basis in fact, are actionable as fraud under [the] law.” Rubinstein v. Collins, 20 F.3d 160, 1990.

Party in interest may become liable for fraud by mere silent acquiescence and partaking of benefits of fraud. Bransom v. Standard Hardware, Inc., 874 S.W.2d 919, 1994.

When circumstances impose duty to speak and one deliberately remains silent, silence is equivalent to false representation. Fisher Controls International…

ISOLATE, MEDICATE, LIQUIDATE: How to Fleece a Senior

Warning to Seniors: Rich or Poor, You’re Worth a LOT to Lawyers, Courts, and Service Agencies!

by Lonnie Brennan

It started out simply: a retired Boxford lawyer, Marvin Siegel, got along in years, and as he approached his 83rd year amongst his fellow men, he began to slip a bit, needing some help around the house. His family pitched in, and at one point, a service that provided checkups on the elderly would visit with Mr. Siegel and see to his needs.

As time went on, his needs increased and a family member related that it made sense for his youngest daughter, a lawyer like her dad, to move into the family home with her…
