Circuit Court of Cook County
50 W. Washington, Rm 2600
Chicago, IL 60602
Dear Judge Evans:
Thank you for your response letter of April 20, 2009. I understand your concerns not to involve yourself in judicial decisions concerning other judges. However, decisions on indigency petitions are not judicial decisions. They are administrative decisions. As chief administrator of the courts you are responsible for the employees under you including the judges, the clerk, and the court reporters. As you have now willfully refused to do your job and actually are condoning many criminal acts committed by judges under you, the Sheriff’s staff, the Court Clerk, and the Court Reporters, I MUST NOW ASK ON BEHALF OF THE CITIZENS OF COOK COUNTY FOR YOUR RESIGNATION. It is not acceptable for the Chief Judge of the Circuit Court of Cook County to engage in willful denial of due process on such a large scale, and at the same time to abdicate his responsibility as an administrator. The net result of your crimes is that you are participating in running the Circuit Court of Cook County as a criminal enterprise.
It is clear from your previous responses to my concerns that you have no intention of doing your job as an administrator. Your court reporters have defied and still are defying court orders to prepare and file transcripts in 05 CR 29530 [correction - 05 CR 12718]. The Illinois Appellate Court has also violated their oaths of office and the law by failing to enforce Judge Kazmierski’s order to prepare free transcripts and file them. Therefore, Federal Judge Coar has ruled in 09 C 105, a habeas corpus petition on this case, that the Appellate Court through their actions has waived the right of the State of Illinois to insist I exhaust State remedies with direct appeals and a petition for habeas before the Illinois Supreme Court. He is hearing my habeas petition on this [wrongful] conviction where a Cook County Correctional Officer, Sgt. Anthony Salemi, attacked me, falsified his records, perjured himself in court, and the Judge, Kazmierski, committed gross judicial misconduct and the prosecutors, Andrew Dalkin and John Maher committed gross prosecutorial misconduct resulting in an unfair trial denying me due process. Then Judge Kazmierski illegally sentenced me to two years in IDOC, refused to stay sentence pending appeal, in violation of U.S. Supreme Court Holding in Cunningham v. California, 127 S. Ct. 856 (2007). I fully expect to be vindicated and for the Sgt. to be arrested and convicted of official misconduct and other crimes and for the prosecutors to be charged with prosecutorial misconduct and punished appropriately. Judge Kazmierski should be disciplined and I intend to find a way to hold him accountable in a court of law or before the JIB and press.
Judge Maddux is running a criminal enterprise called the Law Division, which denies pro se litigants in particularly the constitutional rights to redress of grievances and due process. He does this by running an illegal and unconstitutional operation called the “Black Line Trial System” of which you are fully aware and condone. He also illegally denies indigent petition and then violates law by ordering his clerks not to promptly give the litigant a copy of their petition and his order concerning the petition. I have now publicized this misconduct and criminal RICO violation on the Internet. As you know Sheila Mannix has also documented and publicized the RICO operation run by the Family Court Division and its judges, which you apparently also condone. See:
Judge William D Maddux, in collusion with Sheriff Dart and Clerk Dorothy Brown, as well as with approval of Chief Judge Timothy Evans runs the Law Division of the Circuit Court of Cook Count as a Criminal Enterprise in violation of RICO. The following has been provided to the FBI and posted on my blogs:
Circuit Court of Cook County Family Division is Criminal Enterprise and committing RICO violations. See federal RICO suit brought by Dr. Sheila Mannix:
Dorothy Brown’s Clerk’s Office has violated Supreme Court Rules and failed to transmit a notice of appeal in a criminal case, as well as has refused to pepare a record of appeal in that case, along with permitting and condoning her staff in stealing court files from pro se litigants, extorting money from indigent litigants, and causing false arrest of indigent llitigants, as noted in above Internet blogs. As you are fully aware of these crimes and have failed to act to stop further crimes and remedy the above, you are aiding and abetting in such criminal acts, as well as attempting to cover them up.
You are also fully informed that Judge Schultz, Gainer, Alonso, Pantle, Beibel have blatantly violated law, including Illinois Supreme Court Rules and United States Supreme Court Holdings. I also have evidence of misconduct of at least a half dozen other judges including Judges Kuriakos Ciecil, Brosnahan, Petrone, and Donnelly.
As Chief Judge of the Circuit Court you are responsible for referring judicial
misconduct to the JIB and you have failed to do so. You are also responsible for judicial assignments, yet you leave judges who blatantly violate the law in positions of authority and supervision over other judges. Your failure to do you job is not only irresponsible, but I believe purposeful.
I have also fully informed the FBI about the above schemes and crimes, as well as your refusal to do your job. I believe these acts amount to felony theft of honest services, felony conspiracy to violate rights under color of law, felony violation of rights under color of law, obstruction of justice, extortion, fraud, official misconduct, and wire fraud, as well as other crimes including felony RICO violations.
I respectfully therefore, as a citizen on behalf of the people of Cook County ask for your resignation as Chief Judge of the Circuit Court of Cook County.

I’ve only had one experience with this judge who says the following about herself:
”I’m detail oriented,” Petrone said, when asked about her strengths. ”I think I can listen well, take good notes, try to have a good temperament, yet keep control of the courtroom and stay abreast of the law.”
I strongly disagree with her statements. She is unfair and immoral in my book. She is high on her horse and needs to be brought down a few notches and given a piece of humble pie.
On October 10, 2007 I was unlawfully arrested by Sheriff staff including Sgt. Rachel E. Wright at the entrance to the Clerk’s office at 555 W Harrison courthouse, when I had gone there to simply pick up a paper from the Clerk for a pending case.
I successfully went through the magnetometer without it beeping or lighting up. The officer at the scanner looked in my bag and saw my hand-held nebulizer with battery pack and back-up cord, the liquid medication I carry for it, an EpiPen I inject myself with (auto-epinephrine injector for medical emergencies) and she took it out and eyeballed it. I had an order from another judge in another courthouse allowing me to bring in this critical medical equipment. I cannot use regular “nebs” because I have a chemical sensitivity to the gas propellant in them.
I noticed a plain clothed middle aged black gentlman of medium build looking at the monitor as I was passing through the security entrance. After the deputy put the electrical cord back into my emergency medical bag (which I have had to use several times in courthouses before an ambulance arrived) he yelled that a person can’t bring a cord into the courthouse. I thought he was a nut case and yelled that this was none of his business and that the cord was medical equipment and I had always been permitted to bring it into courthouses, and that this medical bag never leaves my side.
He confronted me at the Clerk’s door with a male deputy and then Sgt. Wright who had NOT seen me go through the security entrance successfully. I actually have obtained a video showing the magnetometer DID NOT light up and that the deputy handed my medical equipment back to me and didn’t stop me from leaving the security entrance and entering the courthouse.
Sgt. Wright arrested me for trespass to state-supported land which is a facially invalid complaint as they had no statement on the complaint about the REQUIRED second element of such a charge – that the person was interrupting someone’s use of the building – and the video showed I wasn’t interrupting anyone, but simply was being harrassed and illegally arrested by Sgt. Wright – who had seen me MANY times bring the medical bag into the courthouse. During the arrest the plain-clothed man identified himself as the Asst. Chief Sheriff in charge of the courthouse – A/C Gary Allens.
Sgt. Wright committed perjury in another case saying that the magnetometer beeped and that I tried to sneak in a cord. My bail was revoked on the other case because of this testimony! I clearly tried to sneak in NOTHING – as the video shows the deputy handling the cord and giving it back to me. I also showed the judge in the other case the medical bag, back up electrical cord, equipment in it, and the order form another judge allowing me to bring in this equipment! Judge Joseph Kazmierski in a grotesque act of judicial misconduct refused to view the video – that I got from the Sheriff’s office by court order! He should be removed from the bench.
Judge Petrone a short time later set bail at an obscene $25,000, and ordered me held without bond until brought the next day before Judge Kazmierski on the additional charge resulting from this of violation of bail, without stating a reason for giving a handicapped 53 yr old woman with no criminal record except for a recent wrongful conviction for battery of an officer (I was convicted of kicking a larger male officer from my wheelchair with my partially paralyzed right leg like a ninja – a physical impossibility for me – see:
) and refused to view the medical equipment, or order form another judge allowing it in the courthouse, or allow me to talk about it.
Judge Petrone was impatient, rude, arrogant, and simply rubber-stamps the prosecutor no matter how ridiculous the lies with total disregard of the defendant.
I will be filing a petition for adjudication of criminal contempt against Sgt. Wright and civil rights suits for false arrest and malicious prosecution.
As an indigent and handicapped person who is a whistle blower against corrupt judges and police, it is clear that Judge Petrone has no independent or impartial and fair bone in her body. She has ten years experience as a prosecutor and clearly intends to rubber-stamp their wishes without question.
She simply aided and abetted the illegal arrest and malicious prosecution in retaliation for my whistle blower activities against her buddies. She should be held accountable for this judicial misconduct – characterized by this excessive bail for a misdemeanor – for a person who had PERMISSION to bring the alleged “cord” into the building, was ill, has strong ties to the community, and assists in the care of an elderly parent, and has no convictions except for one bogus felony where I was convicted of the impossible – attacking a larger male from a wheelchair and causing “soreness” to the chest.
Judge Petrone owes me an apology and should throw the book at the State and Sgt. Wright for this prosecutorial and police criminal misconduct.
I find it obscene and highly inappropriate to put Judge Petrone in felony court and allow her to set bail and rubber-stamp more prosecutor’s cases with bias, arrogant, and misconduct.
