ARDC claims contributing to judge’s campaign committee to influence a decision is not bribery – What do you think?
In this past election in Nov. 2012 the law firm of Peck, Bloom, LLC , their attorneys and family members contributed $10,000 to the campaign committee to elect Justice Theis as a Supreme Court justice. She won the election.
Then Peck, Bloom, LLC , their attorneys and family members contributed $3,150 to the election campaign of Justice Theis opponent, Judge Riley, a probate division judge in Cook country.
This was at the time that Judge Riley was supposed to make a decision on a case where they represented a client (who was falsely alleging to be the trustee of a decadent’s trust) who had forged a signature of a decadent while he was on his deathbed on a trust document, presented the trust as valid – even though a required signature was missing in a second spot required for the trust to be valid, and these lawyers made grossly false statements about the beneficiary who was challenging this trust document. The beneficiary filed a trust challenge to invalidate this version of the trust and re-instate the only valid version where the beneficiary was trustee.
In addition the beneficiary presented to Judge Riley a transcript of testimony by the falsely alleged trustee that she and the decadent had testified in court several years prior that the beneficiary was doing a wonderful job taking care of her father and that the alleged trustee was mentally ill and needed the help of her sister, the beneficiary.
Peck, Bloom, LLC attorneys Kerry Peck and Timothy Ritchey also lied to Judge Riley and said the beneficiary did not provide them discovery. They asked Judge Riley to dismiss the trust challenge based on this lie and asked that the beneficiary’s inheritance be turned over to them to pay their fees as a sanction for filing a “frivolous” trust challenge.
The judge ignored the above forgery evidence, the court testimony evidence and granted Peck, Bloom LLC attorneys every request, falsely stating on the record (without ANY trial or evidentiary hearing on the issue) that the beneficiary did not take care of her father and exploited and abused him, despite the fact that the Dept. of Aging and police investigated and found that these allegations were “UNFOUNDED.” Judge Riley dismissed the trust challenge.
Judge Riley order that the beneficiary’s $245,000 inheritance be turned over to these corrupt attorneys, as a sanction for filing a “frivolous” trust challenge essentially condoning their criminal acts and therefore committing official misconduct and a criminal act himself. (which essentially eliminated the beneficiary’s inheritance after she cared for a dying father for years as well as allowed exorbitant attorney fees).
The beneficiary was Dr. Linda Lorincz Shelton. The client was Alice Lynn Lorincz Dale. Shelton is appealing these orders.
GIVE YOUR OPINION IN A POLL!
For too long now, the corrupt in government have been trashing the Constitution and de facto eliminating our Constitutional rights. The 1 % and greedy are abusing the rest of us getting richer while making us poorer, denying education to the masses, denying health care, denying access to knowledge, denying the freedom to speak our mind and the justice of the courts. Multinational corporations now control our governments. Our Constitution has no weight. Our U.S. Supreme Court even refuses to enforce its own rulings. When the courts trash our rights, we no longer have remedy.
ANONYMOUS – a secret society of hackers around the world dedicated to a free and open Internet [able to hack into anything], in response to the murder of Aaron Swartz , an Internet genius and proponent of free access to knowledge paid for by taxpayer dollars, has now decided to use their last resort and act. The line has now been drawn in the sand. They have reluctantly decided to act as a last resort due to the tyrany we now experience.
The Internet War against government corruption has now been unleashed. They have launched the first missile.
I support it. I also ask ANONYMOUS to help us by publicizing the systemic lawlessness of the courts in Cook County and Illinois that I have revealed on this web site.
Please view the video in this link that announces the beginning of the Internet War to reform our corrupt government.
May God Help us! Tyrants in the Cook County Courts and in our government must be exposed, removed, and reform must occur. There is no other option.
We are Anonymous. We are Legion. We do not forgive. We do not forget. Expect us
This is my response to the death of Aaron Swartz [an Internet and computer genius who invented RSS at the age of 14 and founded Reddit, who worked tirelessly for Internet freedom]:
Aaron’s death has devastated me. I and many others before and presently have tried to improve the world by working to right the wrongs that we bump into so annoyingly. Aaron in terms of Internet access to knowledge that our taxes paid for; me to make our courts transparent and information in our court system open to all so that we can bring to the light of day the corruption that is destroying us, most of all destroying children, elderly, families, and those of us who are working so hard, sacrificing so much, and mostly caring about others especially our children’s futures as well as the many before us and after us that will do the same. Yet our own government is used to destroy us in order to keep knowledge, justice, and freedom in the hands of the 1%, as well as in the hands of the corrupt, instead of in the hands of the people. I have also been arrested on fraudulent and excessive charges apparently in efforts to try to shut me up and shut down my blogs. I know exactly how Aaron felt. The hopelessness and despair are hard to fight. I pray that all those who knew Aaron and heard of him will help continue what is a fight, in the case of Aaron and likely soon in my case to the death. I hope his friends will pursue his cause with a vengeance, as well as try to help others, like me and our group of whistle blowers and activists who are seeking to bring more transparency and justice to the world, as well as stop the cover-up of the corruption that is lining the pockets of the corrupt, the connected, and the exclusive 1%, at the expense of the 99%.
If corruption in family courts described in this blog is not enough including diverting funds from VAMA and Social Security Title IV-D to enrich judges, court-appointed attorneys, and court-appointed evaluators, now ADA accommodations are also at risk in the courts, pro se litigants are being deprived of equal protection in the courts, and we are being thrown back into the stone age in Cook County by new rules from Chief Judge Evans. Please remember to demand fix to VAMA funding being diverted for corrupt purposes before passage. Many of our legislators are totally ignorant of what is actually happening with VAMA funds.
Chief Judge Evans enters order which prohibits cell phones in courthouses where criminal matters are heard is acting like Hitler.
Now defendants cannot contact their attorneys when their attorneys are late, cannot contact their families, cannot have their electronic calendars with them when they are representing themselves. The latest Illinois Supreme Court ruling requiring Court Clerks to allow the use of rolling scanning devices to allow persons to avoid huge page copy charges in the Clerk’s offices and in Court libraries are at risk with the bar on bringing in electronic devices. The disabled who need assistance of electronic devices will have to ask for special permission to bring them into court buildings including palm pilots and cell phones. Many disabled persons take public transportation and need to have cell phones with them at all times to contact their doctors or others for assistance. Now they will have to pay $3.00 to put them in tiny lockers at courthouses, but the courthouses don’t have enough little pay lockers to hold all the phones that people will have to lock up, that will no longer be allowed in courthouses.
In domestic and civil matters pro se litigants and their witnesses will be at a disadvantage. This applies in courthouses where there are eviction cases, divorce cases and every other kind of civil case.
If they ban pro se litigants from having these devices, then they should ban the attorneys and judges from having them too so pro se litigants are not at a disadvantage. If judges wants to go back to the stone age, then let everyone do this. Their computer system is already in the stone age so that it is impossible to query so that the courts can cover up their corruption!
Help make a massive protest about this!! Hitler reigns in Cook County. First the right to petition for habeas corpus has been denied, perjury by sheriff deputies is rampant, and my right to notice for a criminal trial, right to have dismissed legally insufficient complaints, right to speedy trial, right to compulsory process, and right to have access to my court file and pen and paper during trial has been eliminated - now this!! See my new post coming soon about my recent misdemeanor conviction where all these rights were denied!
Help spread the word!

Judge Coglin, now retired, has destroyed families by giving numerous children to male abusers, many with political connections who cover-up the abuse of their children. Professionals including teachers have lost custody of their children due to his illegal rulings that also destroy family income. The problem of judicial corruption is systemic in Illinois especially C[r]ook County Illinois.
VAMA and Social Security Title IV-D funds are being diverted to enrich judges, court-appointed attorneys, and court-appointed evaluators. Demand fix to VAMA funding before passage.
Now the Presiding Judge of Markham Courthouse Judge Marjorie C. Laws, sister of Public Defender (ret) Judge Cunnngham has banned all electronic devices in Markham courhouse – including all cell phones, laptops, ipods, palm pilots, electronic calenders, etc. So witnesses and pro se individuals cannot even bring their electronic calenders into the courthouse!!!! She is stacking the cards against citizens and the innocent and making sure that what goes on in courthouses is kept quiet with no witnesses, no recordings, no court watchers, etc.
The county already does not provide court reporters in family court so the poor have no record of corrupt acts by judges and lose appeals because “they did no [pay court reporters] to preserve the record”!
Totalitarian Hitler like tactics are now being used by Judge Laws to keep the corruption quiet and out of the press!!
Write a protest letter to the press, the U.S. Attorney, your senators and representatives, the Governor, Chief Judge Timothy Evans (Rm 2600 Daley Center at 50 W Washington, Chicago 60602) and anyone else you can think of!!
