Why Chief Cook County Court Judge Evans should be removed

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.

50/50 parenting should be the default position in divorce – think about it!

Divorce courts in America are destroying any chance of maintaining the children’s mental health by interfering with parenting, promoting conflict by discouraging mediation and encouraging that a divorce should be an adversarial proceeding, as well as encouraging the racketeering that goes on when judges enrich court-appointed attorneys, counselors and therapists by appointing them in an open-ended instead of limited fashion and only  when necessary.

Courts are the wrong place for divorce decisions to be made as they are inherently an adversarial proceeding.  We need mediation outside of the court to be the default position in any dissolution of a marriage, particularly if it involves children. We need a complete  overhaul of laws related to dissolution of marriage, as well as about probate issues such as guardians for elders – another area of court abuse of families.

Judges, lawyers, and most of the court-appointed hacks knows as GALs, child representatives, and evaluators (often who make their business promoting conflict to draw out their appointment and make more money in this cottage industry) end up raping the estates of families and even taking the children’s college funds to pay for their fees.

Instead of promoting stabilization and financial security, the judges and lawyers work hard to end careers, teach children to be entitled and view parents as only deep pockets, promote parental alienation and defamation, as well as destroy the very stability necessary for a child to cope with divorce.

We need to ask Pres. Obama to make a task force on dissolution of marriage, paternity issues, and probate issues so that our country can advance socially as much as we have advanced technologically. We need to stop the court abuse of children, the elderly, and families in general.

Sign a petition to ask  President Obama to appoint a task force to study divorce, child custody, family mediation, and ways to take divorce out of the courts, end court abuse, and let parents decide how to parent. Cleck here for petition.

With the dissolution of the family, the mobility that is breaking up the family, and the greed of the divorce cottage industry, we have a very big crisis in America, and around the world.  We need to lead in solving this problem.  Write President Obama and ask him to make this task force his priority in his second term.

The following two videos are powerful messages about the role of fathers and the need for equal  parenting.
