ARDC claims contributing to judge’s campaign committee to influence a decision is not bribery – What do you think?

with 3 comments


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!

Should contributing to a judge’s campaign committee while you have a case before a judge be illegal and considered a bribe?

  1. Yes I agree that contributing to a judge’s campaign while a case against them is pending is a form of bribery and should be prohibited. Maybe you can get DOJ to file a complaint against this guy. Contact the Public Integrity Office of DOJ.

  2. Worried about child support , maybe you should worry about court abusers who use the system to harass protective parents ,
    By filing motion afterotion to deplete the other parent of their life savings while creating a hostile environment for children , now maybe you should do something about that .
    If your concerned your not being heard in court , your children are getting a loud and clear message . There must be a good reason why no joint custody , uncivilized people can not engage civilly enought to have joint custody
