UPDATE: 11/10/16 Despite Judge Evans corrupt acts described below he was retained by judicial retention ballot because public ignores this part of ballot & leaves it blank. Yet if only a few hundred to a 1000 people would vote no on each judge we could throw them out! Not ONE judge was removed, even Judge Pantle and others whom bar associations or other groups deemed unqualified.
Who bothers voting on a 2nd large ballot with dozens of judges names? – no one but judges and their lawyer friends.
UPDATE: 9/20/16 Of course Judge Evans was re-elected, just like corrupt Clerk Dorothy Brown won the primary. Please vote NO on all judges on judicial retention ballots. It is the only way we are going to get rid of a LOT of BAD judges (incompetent and/or corrupt)
Cook County Court Chief Judge Evans is up for re-election. However, in Illinois ONLY the JUDGES vote for the Chief Judge. Evans has been Chief Judge for 15 years and has placed his friends and corrupt judges in positions of authority.
Therefore, the election is fixed and he will continue to be the most corrupt Chief Judge in the country, presiding over a pay-to-play system of bribery of judges through contributions to election campaign funds for judges by attorneys.
Please contact your legislators (State Senators and members of Illinois House – legislature) and tell them we need the laws change so that citizens, not judges elect/appoint the chief judge.
He has tolerated a corrupt Black Line Call system for civil law cases, which is illegal as a case cannot legally be in more than one court at the same time and the Black Line System overturns illegally Supreme Court rules. This has resulted in 100s of of pro se plaintiff cases being thrown out on technicalities that actually were illegal.
He has tolerated de facto suspension of the right to petition for writ of habeas corpus.
He has tolerated abuse of the disabled.
He has allowed family court judges to be ruled by child representatives in divorce cases, when the statutes don’t allow such actions.
He has allowed continued elder abuse and exploitation, where court appointed guardians abuse and exploit elderly or disabled and judges ignore the evidence about this.
He has tolerated corrupt acts of Assistant States Attorneys – testi-lying in court cases when they make their summations to the juries and altering video tape evidence.
He has tolerated gross violation of fitness statutes.
He has tolerated gross abuse of bail laws and bails that are 3-10 times higher than around the country, as well as failure to use personal recognizance bail, which destroys litigants who are poor, in that they remain in jail pretrial due simply to poverty, ending up losing their homes, jobs, and marriages.
He has tolerated bribery of judges – attorneys paying into judges’ campaign funds at the time their cases are before judges in acts of improper influence.
He has failed to update the Circuit Court local rules so that they are out of date and unclear as to basic procedures (for example habeas corpus petitions – who hears them for Municipal Divisions? What is the procedure when the judge refuses to hear them? How do you complain about conduct of a judge?)
I have repeatedly documented on this blog reasons why Judge Evans should be removed. Summarized here.
I have repeatedly written letters to Judge Evans about misconduct, criminal conduct, and ignorance of Cook County judges and he has refused to act to replace them, place a supervisor judge to teach them, or re-educate them. Find some of my letters here.
I have evidence of all of the above acts of misconduct, ignorance, and maliciousness.
Mass support for Shelton in court and in letter writing campaign to stop retaliation against whistle blower
Encourage the press to cover this story of judicial bribery, judicial incompetence or maliciousness, wholesale violation of civil rights in Cook County Courts, and retaliation against a whistle blower.
Come to courtroom 506 2600 S California Ave, Chicago, IL, 10:00 AM on May 9, 2016 and every hearing date after this for case 12 CR 22504, where whistle blower and disabled defendant, Dr. Linda Shelton is on trial, having been illegal charged in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act for allegedly “touching an officer’s ear and pulling hair” during a PTSD flashback where she cowers, is confused, believes she is being beaten up, and swings her arms around her head to try and protect herself.
The officers were informed about her flashbacks and to “back-off” as recommended by her psychiatrist during the flashbacks until she “recovers her equilibrium”, but instead grabbed her, literally lifting her off the ground, and then when she touched the officer innocently, likely due to her medical problems including serious lack of balance and the PTSD, Sheriff staff took advantage of the vague and likely unconstitutional Illinois battery statute to charge Shelton with FELONY battery, which could carry a sentence of 3 to 14 years in prison.
For extensive details – Large federal pending habeas petition and 100s of pages of evidence of corruptio of the Sheriff staff and Cook County Court judges – read here
This is outrageous, immoral, and unconstitutional. A large grass roots effort is needed to challenge this outrage. The following is repeated on Shelton’s Facebook page here. Mass public pressure needed for justice and to fight government corruption and attacks on whistle blower.PLEASE WRITE THE SUGGESTED LETTER TO THE FOLLOWING OFFICIALS!

And ask them to help me to make an appointment with an investigator in the FBI/US Attorney’s offices to file criminal complaints. I need mass involvement in order to obtain justice.
My property and home, as well as father’s estate for which I am trustee were all stolen to destroy me and shut me up as whistle blower. I live in Oak Lawn, IL.
SUGGESTED LETTER: Please help Linda Shelton to make appointments with the FBI and U. S. Attorney to deal with corrupt judges in Cook County, corrupt peace officers, numerous false arrests in retaliation for her whistle blowing and in violation of the American with Disabilities Act.
Her issues cross state lines and expose corruption at the highest political levels in Illinois.
She has helped many of us in exposing corruption in the family courts, probate courts, and criminal courts and now she needs our help!
She is disabled and her illnesses are making it harder for her to act alone.
The theft of her home and money is outrageous and was done by those who had her falsely arrested to get her out of the way so they could do their evil and illegal acts. The situation involves:
1) forgery and fraud upon the court in making a fraudulent deathbed trust. Illegal eviction without the sheriff using the Oak Lawn Police – who knew they could not evict without the Sheriff in an eviction case which was DISMISSED – while the eviction case was pending – now they won’t let her into her house without threat of arrest and are selling the house
2) Theft of her personal property and a $2 million estate for which she is trustee transferred to a person in New Jersey and to unscrupulous attorneys taking advantage of this mentally ill person in New Jersey to convert it to attorney fees.
3) Bribery of a probate judge to write an order saying they own the property and can evict her – when ONLY a forcible entry and detainer action can evict someone – or it is an unlawful lockout, breaking and entering, trespass, wrongful conveyance, theft, etc. The probate judge made orders in the probate case on the issue of a trust – which was not before him so he had no jurisdiction!!! This is criminal action by that judge.
4) False arrest for “touching an officer’s ear” during a PTSD flashback TRIGGERED PURPOSELY BY SHERIFF STAFF – thus a charge of FELONY battery to an officer where they are seeking a 3-14 yr sentence!
Shelton is disabled and had a court disability coordinator agreement that the officers would not use info given them to trigger a flashback and if there was a flashback, they would back off while Shelton was confused, cried, cowered and appeared terrified. Instead they grabbed her and carried her to jail, charging her with this fraudulent felony.
They are the criminals for violating the agreement.
Battery requires intent and they knew there was no intent during a flashback as she was confused and having an altered state of consciousness consistent with a flashback – where she relives in a dream like state attack against her by police where she went into a respiratory arrest.
She needs an officer to obtain search warrants and recover her property.
Can you ask the FBI and US Attorney to investigate and to assist as it involves a person in New Jersey – thus crime crosses state lines! Shelton has documentary evidence to prove all of the above.
Of course, the Oak Lawn police won’t arrest themselves.
THANK YOU TO ANYONE WHO WRITES, ATTENDS COURT HEARINGS, OR HELPS ME AND OTHERS FIGHTING COURT CORRUPTION IN ANY WAY!

The Illinois Judicial Inquiry Board said it is not a bribe.
It happened in my case with Judge Riley – read here.
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%.
