From DS: Cook County Office of Public guardian bans husband from seeing his wife of 50 years!

MaryGSykes.com

This couple has been unbelievably isolated from one another for over 18 months by the Office of Public Guardian.

There is no court order to do this. There is no reason to do this. He has never been investigated by APS or ever accused of a crime regarding his beloved wife.

Dean Sallas is about to be 84. He needs his wife.

The nursing homes have finally opened up. He goes to visit wife (who has been placed in a nursing home against her will by the Office of Public Guardian and she wants to see her husband he wants to see his wife (who is about the same age, maybe a few years younger).

This is the note he gets when he visits:

Dean Sallas
You may not visit Amelia Sallas until you have talke to Lisa Casanova and we have permission for visitations.   THIS IS A DIRECTIVDE FROM…

Circuit Court Clerk touts transparency with new bill. Critics say it’s not what she promised.

ByJosh McGhee|April 7, 2021

SHARE:PrintEmailCook County Circuit Court Clerk Iris Martinez

Alex Nitkin for The Daily Line

Cook County Circuit Court Clerk Iris Martinez speaks at a press conference at the Daley Center on Wed., April 7.

Cook County Circuit Court Clerk Iris Martinez has walked back a campaign pledge to give the public more access to records from her office under the state’s Freedom of Information Act.

The clerk is the official record keeper for the Circuit Court and is responsible for collecting and distributing tens of millions of dollars in court fines and fees. But the agency is not subject to the state’s open record laws. That exclusion means the public has largely been kept in the dark about the operations and funding of one of the largest unified court systems in the country.

From KKD; Harassment by the ARDC in revealing corruption by the Office of Public Guardain is not acceptible

MaryGSykes.com

I think your attorney harassing Dean Sallas with a subpoena is not only
outrageous but an embarrassment to the entire legal profession. Dean at 84 is
not and never has been an attorney and his dealings with x, y, and z are NONE OF
THE IARDC’S business.
The over-reach by your IARDC attorney cannot be swept under the rug as it is so
beyond propriety it should be a termination offense! In fact her total
disregard for the CONSTITUTIONAL PROTECTIONS of citizen DEAN SALLAS should
result in termination of her LAW LICENSE. iNDIVIDUALS in the public sector
who so blatantly thread on the Constitution cannot be allowed public license.
Respect for the RULE OF LAW and the Constitution are not to be taken lightly.
Please let me make an observation – Ms. O did forward a letter she apparently
received from Attorney Elizabeth Casanova. This letter was similarly grossly
inappropriate…

Michigan high court rules that parental rights may not be terminated for absences from school

MaryGSykes.com

https://www.wilx.com/2021/04/05/michigans-top-court-sides-with-dad-in-parental-rights-case/

DETROIT (AP) – The Michigan Supreme Court unanimously overturned the decisions of a Kalamazoo-area judge who terminated the parental rights of a poor couple after their two children had missed 25% of school.

While the absences in 2017-18 were higher than the school’s average, there was no evidence of resulting harm or neglect, thecourt saidFriday, a key threshold when a judge decides whether to take jurisdiction over children.

The case was closely watched by advocates for poor families, especially during a pandemic when education has been significantly disrupted.

“In 2017, over 230,000 children were chronically absent,” Tim Pinto, an attorney for the father, said during arguments in March. “I’m positive that those stats are much worse today.”ADVERTISEMENThttps://0a667e7f654a162c79b85f21ab0f25c9.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-38/html/container.html

Texas Judge orders $128k in sanctions against CPS for wrongful removal of Children

MaryGSykes.com

Protective Services, forcing the state to come up with new training for its workers and pay more than $127,000 for wrongfully removing a couple’s children and allegedly lying to the court about it.

Now, attorneys for parents Melissa and Dillon Bright are calling for the firing of the CPS workers involved and asking for prosecutors to investigate and consider criminal charges.

“They lied in their affidavit, they lied in their sworn removal testimony and they have – when questioned about those lies – taken the Fifth,” said family lawyer Dennis Slate.ADVERTISEMENThttps://5a60f16b30b52e0c8a57eb9b13beed1f.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-37/html/container.html

“When the Harris County District Attorney ran for office said that she would investigate perjury claims within the Harris County courts. She needs to live up to that campaign promise and look into this case and bring the appropriate action.”

The judge’s ruling late Thursday came weeks after caseworker Lavar Jones shocked the courtroom by pleading the Fifth repeatedly…

Question from Quora, actually answered right re: false complaints to DCFS

MaryGSykes.com

In recent years, DCFS throughout the nation has been targeting perfectly good parents and slamming their kids into foster care where they languish and sometimes even die without their parents. Ripping kids from their parents has to have a better process and procedure and rights for good parents. Currently the proceedings are held in secret and parents are routinely denied their court file, the state’s attorneys’ files and even their own attorney’s files.

This has to end. But until it does, listen up:

Someone threatened to report me to CPS because she heard my child screaming. The screaming was just her having a tantrum. How do I prevent her from making a report?

I knew someone in a similar situation. She spoke to an attorney immediately. The attorney advised her to take her child somewhere, such as to her own mother’s house, and stay there until her child’s pediatrician’s office…

Request from FB: Sample Motion to Vacate Gag Order as being Unconstitutional violation of First Amendment rights

MaryGSykes.com

See below. In far too many corrupt cases, GAL’s Child Reps and attorneys are asking the judge to place gag orders against Facebook Blogging, posts and pages. All of this is highly unconstitutional under the First Amendment to the US Constitution. Below is a sample Motion to Vacate a Gag Order. In most states, you have to file a Motion to Vacate based upon “good cause” in 30 days, or where a gross mistake of law was made, within 2 years.

Gag orders are considered immediately appealable because they are injunctions in effect. Illinois has a 2 day shortened period to appeal with a decision being made in about a week, or the aggrieved party can file a normal Notice of Appeal in 30 days and ask for an expedited briefing schedule.

Other states may have different rules for appeals of gag orders.

Sample motion:

From KKD: 17 Improperly stored bodies found at NJ nursing home

MaryGSykes.com

An Article from April 16, 2020 – Why has the media censored the wanton killing of the elderly at these sheltered care facilities – WHO IS PROFITING?

AS I listen to the hourly commentary on the toll of the virus, which apparently has now been surplanted by the debacle in Washington yesterday, it interesting to note how little emphasis had been root causes of the deaths of so many senior citizens. Why the censorship of a key aspect of the pandemic?
