Although this is obvious, no person in this blog has been accused of any wrongdoing, crime or even arrested unless stated otherwise from a website reporting actual arrests and convictions. We are stating our opinions and we have the right to do this. In fact, Federal Law says that a website owner IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ITS CONTENT (47 USC 230–internet blogging/posting immunity act) so that the free flow of ideas and thoughts may provoke the crucial essence of a free society.
Only the particular author is responsible for his or her content. (So don’t blame me if you dislike some posts from someone else.) This site is newsworthy because it is picked up automatically by many other blogs and is therefore protected by the First Amendment of the US Constitution and the Illinois State Constitution of 1970 and violations will be taken seriously with charges under the Illinois Citizens Participation Act. We ARE participating in government here–we are lawyers trying to make a difference to make things better for grandma and grandpa. We don’t care how much money you’re making–directly or indirectly from Probate or a nursing home or home health care wired-in business. Do yourself a favor and get a different job, it’s not worth it. And if you’re someone filing ARDC complaints against this blog, we are all exercising our rights to disseminate important news to protect the rights of the elderly and respect their wishes. Again, go get another job–it’s not worth it.
PS – This blog is primarily for entertainment purposes only and please don’t file any pleadings or documents in court without checking with the sources for errors. No legal blog can take the place of hiring a competent attorney to work on your probate case, and that’s why this blog is for entertainment purposes only. My rate to review is $300 per hour. Sorry, but portions of this blog have to be entertaining so we can get the word out. CNN, Fox News, WGN News, CBS News, The Chicago Trib and Suntimes, NBC News, are no worse or better than this blog, and they hire and use plenty of attys licensed in Illinois that are NOT under investigation or a complaint by the Illinois ARDC. Horrible video games such as Postal, Grant Theft Auto and the like hire plenty of lawyers too to defend obscenity litigation, warning notice litigation and Brown v. Entertainment Media says this is an US Constitution Right to produce complete and utter morally deficient trash and horse feathers.
There is most certainly a great deal of (stinging) truth in it, esp. for the [special persons involved], the probate court and a society that ignores (thereby condoning) troubles, problems and issues occurring in certain legal fora, but everyone needs to understand, these are not pleadings, there is no Motion, Response and Reply set by any court, together with extended legal argument recorded by a court reporter and subject to a Motion to Reconsider if errors or new evidence is found. So don’t take it that way. Like a good reporter, do your own due diligence and check with the sources first.
For accurate details, contact the court reporters for copies of transcripts, go to the probate file and pull the pleadings and make your own copies, talk to the people that were there, etc., whatever, just don’t write me about how something was not as accurate as you wanted because you got it from this blog. (New York Times US Supreme Court case–see posts on that) Also, don’t write anyone and tell them that KD is an attorney for Gloria or me or any other attorney wrote something for Gloria that she filed because it is not at all true. Ken and I are posting suggested pleadings that Gloria (and others) can use if she wants to use it, but most of the time she just writes her own stuff or gets a paralegal to do it. Unless you see an appearance form filed by an attorney that was accepted by the court, it’s none of anyone’s business who an attorney represents, gives legal advice to or does not give legal advice to. All communications to an atty relating to a legal matter which are not publicly disclosed are subject to an attorney client privilege the client may claim at any time. So, unless it’s posted as “pleadings from circuit court” or “transcript from circuit court”, the rest are just impressions, feelings, understandings and BS–which is why it is for entertainment purposes only. Get a lawyer if you have a court case.
Honestly, I have to explain blogs to attorneys? Have they no life? Do they not know how to email me or use the “comments” section at all?
Also, if you don’t like what you like here, if it’s polite and minimally logical, please post a reply. The button is on every single post page. If you have a different or alternate view, post it here. But if you really don’t like it so much it upsets you, you’re taking it as a threat and your shrink says “no stress”, please don’t read this blog. You don’t need to be here. Don’t sign up for it and don’t read it is my advice. As many US Supreme Court cases say, “avert thy eyes.”
