Disability Rights – NYAV

Washington, D.C. 20530

REGARDING: Systemic violation of due process rights in Cook County Courts, including ADA rights, habeas rights, right to reasonable bail, right to compulsory process, right to present a defense, as well as abuse of disabled detainees by Judges and Cook County Sheriff Staff.

NOTE: Please refer to evidence on enclosed CDs

To Whom It May Concern:

I am writing this in regards to numerous persons mentioned in this document, including myself, as well as numerous unmentioned persons. The enclosed motions, petitions, complaints are just the tip of the iceberg. They include individual complaints as well as complaints concerning classes of litigants and defendants who are abused by the courts in Cook County and Illinois, not just me, but many others in our loosely associated group of citizens who are victims of court corruption (some of this evidence is not in this letter or attachments, but the people I name here have it – as well as many have already given info to the FBI or U.S. Attorney).

These issues include those who are victims of mortgage fraud, those falsely alleged to be unfit for trial and sent to secure mental health facilities without any due process whatsoever, those who are parents falsely alleged to be unfit to parent individually and forced to pay child support, without due process, out of their Social Security Disability income, or those elderly adults who are improperly placed under guardianship so that they are removed from their homes and property and their property sold, without due process, and someone else decides their property and care issues to their detriment , excluding relatives who have done nothing wrongessentially court sanctioned theft of estates by often un-needed court appointed child representatives, counselors, and guardians. If the Bill of Rights means anything, you will carefully review the enclosed and interview everyone mentioned in this document.

Checking your internal FBI database you will see they have FALSELY defamed me using a history of false arrests and lies about my mental health to prevent FBI intake workers from taking me seriously. This is NOT a joke; I am NOT mentally ill contrary to the rumors and false statements made by the Cook County Sheriff, improperly influencing the U.S. Marshals and federal judges– see attached psychiatry reports from top U.S. forensic psychiatrists; this documentary evidence proves what I say and the CD contains medical and psychiatric records proving the rumors about me are FALSE. Do not believe the sensational hearsay you have about me that is being used to defame me and cover-up what I can prove – this defamation is meant to discredit me so you do not review these documents! – As well as meant to be retaliation against me complaining about conditions at the Cook County Jail and judicial corruption – see the many complaints I have already made to your office. You need to investigate and take down the corrupt officers, attorneys, and judges in Cook County, as well as severely reprimand certain U.S. Marshals as well as investigate several federal judges. This is much larger than simply “Greylord 2”.

As you know, since I worked for Orlando Jones (Cook County Board President Stroger Sr’s Godson and major actor in corruption, when our contract group opened Provident Hospital of Cook County, which the FBI raided and confiscated documents), before he committed suicide and therefore, you could not indict him, as well as due to the evidence I gave to AUSA Joan Laser regarding violation of civil and disability rights by Sheriff Staff, I am well informed about Cook County and Illinois government corruption. In addition, over the last many years I have discovered, through insiders in the Cook County Courts, the Court Clerk’s Office, and the Chicago Department of Health, about a lot more corruption.

I document, with evidence on enclosed CD and on enclosed documents, such extensive ignorance/ incompetence and/or corruption of judges, officers, the Illinois Attorney General’s office, Cook County States Attorneys, and Public Defenders in the Cook County court system, of administrators and attorneys at Elgin Mental Health Center and the Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services, as to make the court system in Illinois, particularly Cook County, either so full of patronage and corruption or a criminal enterprise that on a pervasive, institutionalized basis denies civil, constitutional, and statutory rights of litigants and defendants, in many cases for monetary gain or even just for prestige.

For example:

  1. The ADA is ignored and violated on a systemic basis by Cook County Court Chief Judge, Cook County Court judges, and the Cook County Court Disability Coordinator. The Court Disability accommodation system operates in violation of recommendations of Justice Stephens in his opinion in Lane v. Tennessee (2004). Several people have suffered exacerbation of medical problems and in one case a stroke, when the courts have ignored ADA accommodation requests.
  2. Excessive unconstitutional bail is set by Cook County judges for indigent persons, in violation of Illinois’s bail statute, 725 ILCS 5/110-1, et seq. (“the Statute”), which require courts to set a monetary bail for pretrial arrestees unless there is a meaningful inquiry into the person’s ability to pay and in amounts in excess of what the person is able to pay. Plaintiffs and the Plaintiff classes in Cook County Court class action case number 16CH13587complain that this practice violates their rights under the Equal Protection and Due Process Clauses of the United States and Illinois Constitutions, U.S. Const., amend. XIV, Ill. Const.1970, art. I, § 2, and under the Excessive Bail and Sufficient Sureties Clauses of the United States and Illinois Constitutions respectively, U.S. Const., amend VIII, Ill. Const. 1970, art. I, § 9. Steps have begun to make bond court come into compliance-though not very effective. YET, States Attorney Foxx is refusing to review the excessive bail already set for those out on bail or even discuss the matter– despite her claims she has fixed this problem. See Motion to Reduce Bail attached.
  3. I clearly document de facto suspension of the right to petition for writ of habeas corpus in Cook County – a violation of the Suspension Clause and Illinois Statute, 735 ILCS Article X (see 9 habeas petitions that have never been heard, – even Chief Judge Evans is refusing to remedy this issue);
  4. I clearly document bribery of Judge Riley by attorneys, so as the control of a $2 million Illinois estate was stolen by a mentally ill person living in New Jersey and converted to attorney fees under the influence of a corrupt law firm in Illinois, Peck Bloom, LLC and their accomplices including attorney Aaron Gole (this appears to be a systemic problem as due process is denied in many cases I have heard about so that estates can be stolen by conversion to widely excessive and unnecessary attorney fees) see case 10 P 6117 and the evidence of huge payment to judicial campaign committees (10% of the total campaign contributions other than from the candidate loaning his campaign money) that appear to be bribes as the judge at the time he received them ignored testimony and proof of bribery, forgery, and fraud upon the court;
  5. I clearly document a policy of denial of the right to a jury in criminal cases involving fitness, thus loss of liberty without due process, as well as denial of the right to compulsory process, the right to an attorney, as well as the right for the litigant to testify (THIS IS SYSTEMIC AND INVOLVES MOST OF THOSE COMMITTED TO ILLINOIS STATE SECURE MENTAL HEALTH FACILITIES FOR A “FINDING” OF UNFITNESS FOR TRIAL – Illinois Statute and case law require that defendants, who ask for a jury, receive a jury trial that can only be waived by the defendant and not the defendant’s attorney – See on CD Memorandum of Law – Fitness for case law and statutes);
  6. I clearly document that the courts are denying discovery of critical evidence with statements by fiat that the evidence is not relevant to the case, essentially barring legitimate defenses at trial (see case 12 CR 22504 documentation, including federal habeas petition and exhibits on CD – NOTE: this federal judge denied a federal habeas petition stating the litigant did not exhaust state remedies, DESPITE THE FACT that the IL Supreme Court denied a habeas petition in the case);
  7. I clearly document the oppressive fees charged to pay court appointed attorneys, child representatives, and psychologic evaluations, in divorce cases, as well as the federal felony funding fraud by the Illinois Department of Family and Human Services, Child Support Division, who receive money to help receive evidence to calculate child support obligations, but refuse to do this important service.
  8. I clearly document that the corruption is so extreme that it can be said that probate cases, divorce cases, and some criminal cases are being heard without a due process trial – even though this is hard to believe (witnesses stricken, important pretrial motions such as to obtain a HIPAA protective order stricken, and thus evidence barred, litigants illegally sanctioned and not allowed to file motions and memoranda of law or offers of proof – so as to prevent them preserving the record, indigent persons denied preservation of the record for appeal as there are no court reporters provided in Cook County in civil cases – thus denial of access to appeals, as w ell as the Court Clerk losing parts of court files).

Unbelievable as it may seem:

  1. I have even been forced to have the sentencing phase of a wrongful contempt charge held in the lock-up visiting room in a courthouse, thus denying viewing by the public or even friends in violation of the Sixth Amendment right to a public trial– the judge eventually came to his senses and had the conviction and allegation “purged”, but ignored motion that purge was not appropriate term and it should be corrected to say stricken (Cook County Circuit Court case no. 11 MC1 6000086-01),
  2. I have been unconstitutionally, in violation of the Suspension Clause and U.S. Supreme Court holdings[1], in violation of many Illinois statutes, sentenced to 16 months for contempt without a trial, been denied statutory good time jail sentence credits, by a judge, without legal authority to do so, who should have recused himself for the contempt trial (on 3 cases, which legally were three charges in one case per 720 ILCS 5/3-3, with the fraudulent allegation by Judge McHale that I violated law [legal act] by filing next-friend habeas petitions[2], Cook County cases nos. 10 HC 00006 & 10 HC 00007, as a NON-attorney and verbally defended my right to do so by telling the judge he was committing a criminal act (See FN 1 and transcripts on CD from 2010) – Cook County Case nos. ACC100083-01, ACC 100093-01, and ACC 100094-01);
  3. I have been fraudulently declared unfit with the state psychiatrist testifying later I was never unfit (although this was later changed to fit) in sham “trials” without any due process of law and sent to a secure mental health facility, which was not the least restrictive situation as required by law, denying me bail for the purpose of the fitness hearing IN VIOLATION OF STATE LAW, WITHOUT ANY testimony that I was unfit by any professional or person except the judge, denying my statutory right to be present for the fitness trial and to testify, and denied notice of the fitness trial. This was a PERVASIVE, GROSS VIOLATION OF STATUTE BY THE JUDGE, not even objected to by the State’s Attorney and Public Defender (thus they were both either so ignorant of law or so criminally malicious as to ignore their oath of office to uphold the law and report violations of it to the Judicial Inquiry Board and prosecuting federal authorities) – appointed over my objection again in violation of statute (See “Memorandum of Law – Fitness”, on CD, for case law and statutory authority supporting my statement & transcripts on CD),
  4. I have been denied accommodations for my disabilities including several judges refusing to hear motions for accommodations, refusing to read any medical documents I produce or discuss in detail my need for accommodations, and refusing to sign orders for accommodations in violation of the ADA, as well as refusing to sign orders for a HIPAA protective order, quashing my subpoenas involving the court disability coordinator, so as to prevent me from finding out the names of witness Sheriff Staff she informed about disability accommodations, also as required by federal HIPAA law, thus impeding my defense and in fact prohibiting my defense in violation of law. Read transcripts in 12 CR 22504 on CD – contact me and I will point out the sentences. (See Memoranda of Law – Right to Present a Defense, as well as the motion for HIPAA Protective Order and for Accommodations for Disabilities on CD, as well as court transcripts documenting court orders refusing to hear these motions or refusing to grant HIPAA protective order), and
  5. I have been repeatedly beaten , medically neglected by the guards, medical staff, and nutritional staff at the jail – DESPITE US Attorney’s 2007-8 investigations, findings, and agreements – including my pony tail grabbed and used to bang my head against a wall, my hands handcuffed to a bench and not allowed to use the bathroom so that I would have to pee on the floor, my chin forcibly pushed to my chest despite extensive cervical spine surgery that reconstructed my spine, a knee placed on my chest during an asthma attack, duct tape put on my mouth during an asthma attack, guards falsely told I have HIV and was a “spitter” so that a hood was put on me-despite difficulty breathing and claustrophobia, my asthma medication withheld, held down and kicked by guards with their boots leaving 4 X 6 “ bruising witnessed by my attorney – J. Nicolas Albukerk, and even transferred to an unlawful imprisonment without my medical records and the guards told to tell the prison that I was faking my medical problems so that when I had trouble breathing they put me on the psych unit and withheld very needed medication for cardiac, pulmonary, neurological, and PTSD disease, nearly 8 hours until the jail doctor contacted the prison and asked why they had not called him about severe unusual medical problems. I have notes about all of this so you can find the names of the guards – the worst were Charles Johnson, Ruby Jackson, and a small black female named Levi, and several un-named supervisors – Sgt. Hernandez told me in confidence that Sgt. Salemi (who committed perjury so I would be wrongfully convicted of felony battery for bumping an officer with my broken wheelchair), only attacks women, but he would not testify for me. Most of this was videotaped since 2008, as the senior supervisors at the Cook Co. Jail ordered that whenever I was moved I would be videotaped to protect them against frivolous suits – note that none of my suits were frivolous, despite District Court judge’s rulings that the cases were dismissed – most on technical details.

Due process is denied as a matter of policy and procedure in Cook County Courts and retaliation against complaints is the norm (no trial or sham trials with one party missing in divorce and probate cases, no hearing of habeas petitions in misdemeanor cases and some felony cases, no witnesses, no notice, evidence suppressed, no HIPAA protective orders, no written accommodations of disabilities by order, etc. – REGARDLESS OF WHAT IS WRITTEN ON PAPER, IN COURT WEB SITES, STATED IN NEWS SOURCES, OR STATED BY COURT REPRESENTATIVES OR JUDGES – LOOK AT WHAT THEY DO NOT WHAT THEY SAY!!)

I strongly encourage you to put together a task force who interviews other similarly situated persons and persons I have assisted as a pro bono paralegal named in this document– (follow the trail of money paid court appointees) including:

(1)DB (declared dangerous to his kids and denied unsupervised visitation based on the fact he was an ex-Marine and was therefore “dangerous” and on hearsay – denied a trial; wife CB is a drug addict and addiction counselor who steals drugs from her patients and from a disabled neighbor whose house she had a key for in case of emergency – he has an affidavit from the neighbor, which was included in his court pleadings – the judge refuses to address the addiction issue on the record), as well as ORDERED TO PAY CHILD SUPPORT DESPITE SERIOUS INJURY AT WORK, causing him to have $0 INCOME FOR A PROLONGED PERIOD AND NO SAVINGS OR ASSETS,

(2) SM who unlawfully lost custody of her boys (her son finally took pictures of his father’s drug stash to blackmail him into letting him live with his mother, without informing the court – the court had illegally without good cause taken away her custody of her children in retaliation for her whistle blowing and advocacy activities against family court corruption),

(3) JG (the court took away his custody without good cause simply because he is ill with a repaired aortic dissection in violation of his ADA rights, denied a continuance when he became ill resulting in a stroke),

(4)KM (the court extorted huge sums of money from her to pay unnecessary fees from court appointed persons – see slide show presented to IL legislative committee on CD),

(5) SP (court illegally ordered large child support amount from Sandra “because she is a doctor” – despite the fact that she took a leave from her residency to raise the kids while her husband finished an anesthesiology residency – so she is not licensed and he is not just licensed as a physician, but is making a huge income she is now homeless; Sandra has evidence of mortgage fraud by her ex-husband and the court is refusing to consider it and no one is investigating it – court is actually covering it up; she lost custody of kids illegally because now rich ex-husband was able to hire an attorney who snowed and manipulated the court) ,

(6) GB who lost custody of her kids to the really bad father (who helps runs Sexpo Conventions and encourages his daughters to prostitute – per rumor, he has lots of money that he used to obtain a lawyer to fix the case – her kids are seeing her on the sly because the courts won’t let her see them),

(7) CS, and so many others whose names and contact information these persons can give to you to pay outrageous court fees to court appointed unneeded counselors and child representatives ($400-$500 per hr. and sometimes for multiple attorneys at the same time – IL Rep. Lou Lang told me to my face that he will never allow the state to pass a law limiting attorney fees although the state had limited death penalty defense fees to $150 per hr.) who totally disregard the best interest of the children, but do regard the best interest of their wallets in excessive fees and unnecessary prolonging of their services – assisted by donations to judges campaign funds so that their every wish is granted without regard to law. (See slide show on CD “M******* Presentation” – about Cottage Industry corrupting family court and extorting money from families) [NOTE: that the IL House of Representatives is run dictatorially by the Speaker Madigan and a handful of his powerful lieutenants that prevent any bill from reaching the floor without his permission – subverting democracy.]

(8) Non-custodial parents are consistently ordered to pay more child support than allowed by federal law, especially if disabled and receiving social security disability (child support is illegally taken from their social security income or from the children’s college funds)(talk with JG and DB).

(9) With the prosecutor failing to explain why a significant portion of the video tapes were missing, Tiny (5 ft. tall with very tiny hands) grandmother Robin Johnson (who is now very fat in prison due to depression and poor diet, consuming huge quantities of bread and cookies) was wrongfully convicted of wrestling a large gun from an officer (> 6 ft. tall and large), killing him and sentenced to life in prison (during a fugue-like epileptic seizure where the officer grabbed her neck and banged her head against a bus that the court refused to allow her to talk about or present her long-term treating physicians or medical evidence) who was very large and experienced, but HER HAND IS TOO SMALL TO HAVE HANDLED THE GUN, she has no understanding of the working of gun safety switches, and she has no experience or training in self-defense or aggressive physical attack methods that would have allowed her to grab a gun from an officer, remove the safety, and fire it so as to shoot him in the head, while her head was being bashed against a bus by the officer and then she was thrown to the ground by him as testimony verified, in the middle of a fugue like seizure which she had a very long history of suffering from – YOU REALLY NEED TO INVESTIGATE THIS ONE – there is no evidence she held a gun (mysteriously minutes of the videotape are missing) and the gun mysteriously disappeared & reappeared so fingerprints not examined !! –

this was another case of an INNOCENT BLACK PERSON being shot full of holes (Robin was wounded 22 times) by white officers, falsely defamed as an “angry person”, when she’s just an average but very poor nice grandmother – she had 22 bullet wounds (received as she was trying to protect herself by sliding under a car and holding her hands in front of her) and barely survived nearly having an arm amputated – by overzealous officers who likely killed their own officer (I personally examined her hand and asked her non-leading questions about guns – which proved she is extremely naïve and inexperienced and have some experience in forensic pathology about these things as I rotated in forensic pathology as a graduate student for six months and in psychiatry as I was medical director of a psychiatry group practice, in addition to receiving training in psychiatry during my pediatric residency)!

Enclosed is a CD and documents containing a lot of evidence supporting the above statements pertaining to my cases and the case of DB

but this is only the tip of the iceberg.

I have not enclosed evidence concerning most of the other persons mentioned above. Many of them have provided to the Chicago FBI office evidence that appears to be ignored.

Please investigate this information thoroughly.

I am asking under the presentment clause for you

to present as much of this as possible to a grand jury for prosecution.

I believe the information I have sent you and the others I mention have sent you or could provide to you would make this case much bigger than Greylord and if investigated would make a big dent in correcting the corruption in Cook County, by forcing the judges, attorneys, and police to be better educated and supervised, as well as to FOLLOW THE LAW.

you will realize that I have no confidence in the FBI or U.S. Attorney in Chicago, who appears to be knowingly covering up the above. I am just writing this letter and sending you this evidence and these complaints to document that you have been fully informed. Should you surprise me and actually investigate, I thank you for your time. Eric Holder pledged to fight government corruption. He clearly has failed to do so. I, along with a dozen of my acquaintances, have been waiting for over eight years to discuss all this personally with high up officials in your office and we and our complaints have been ignored. THE FBI office in Chicago continually refuses to discuss the above with me in detail and refuses to accept my evidence – now several times when I went personally to their office to complain! I complained to the U.S. Marshal inspector general (or similar unit) and was ignored, never receiving a report despite FOIA requests. Why has the Chicago FBI decided to refuse to accept evidence or complaints of federal crimes and misconduct for federal Marshals?

Sincerely,

Linda Shelton

PLEASE contact me directly at picepil@aol.com if you want copies of evidence

Attachment: CDs containing evidence and Numerous documents

[1] A person, including a non-attorney, may file an habeas petition on “behalf of another”. 735 ILCS 5/10-103, U.S. ex rel. Toth v. Quarles, 350 U.S. 11, 76 S.Ct 1 (1955) and Boumediene v. Bush, 553 U.S. 723, 128 S.Ct 2229 (2008)

A judge may not order denial of statutory good time jail credits. Jurisdiction for removing Good Time Jail Allowance (credits) lies with the Department of Corrections – or persons appointed by the county sheriff and NOT the court or judge, 730 ILCS 130, People v. Russel, 237 Ill.Epp.3d 310 (1992); People v. Prater, 158 Ill.App.3d 330 (1987); Kaeding v. Collins, 281 Ill.App.3d 919 (1996).

It is forbidden to sentence for more than one count of contempt representing same motive or state of mind during one trial or case. Illinois sentencing statutes require concurrent sentences for the same conduct or acts occurring during the same state of mind in the course of one act or one series of acts – 720 ILCS 5/3-3. You may NOT order separate contempt cases and sentences for each repeated similar act during one trial even on different days or if one hearing is continued over several days. People v Brown, 235 Ill.App.3d 945 (1992)

Sentences exceeding 6 months individually or aggregate for contempt require a jury trial as a constitutional right. You may not sentence a person for contempt several times in one trial and then make the sentences concurrent for more than six months without a trial. A contempt sentence more than six months requires a jury trial. Bloom v. Illinois, 391 U.S. 194 (1968); Duncan v. Louisiana, 391 U.S. 145 (1968); The Court held that in a contempt case it required a jury trial when the trial judge awaits the conclusion of the proceeding and then imposes separate sentences in which the total aggregated more than six months. Codispoti v. Pennsylvania, 418 U.S. 506 (1974); It was held that when the punishment in a criminal contempt case in federal court is more than the sentence for a petty offense, the Court drew the traditional line at six months, a defendant is entitled to trial by jury. Cheff v. Schnackenberg, 384 U.S. 373 (1966)

A jury trial is a constitutional right if contempt sentence is summarily imposed on a day other than the day in which the contemptuous act occurred, In re Marriage Betts, 200 Ill.App.3d 26 (1990); Winning Moves,Inc., v. Hi! Baby, Inc. 238 Ill.App.3d 834 (1992); Kaeding v. Collins, 281 Ill.App.3d 919 (1996)

Defending a contempt charge by vigorously quoting law is not contemptuously insulting the court, “[T]his Court, if its aid be needed, will unhesitatingly protect counsel in fearless, vigorous and effective performance of every duty pertaining to the office of the advocate on behalf of any person whatsoever.” Sacher v United States, 343 U.S.1 (1952); People v. Siegel, 68 Ill.Dec.118; People v. Powell, 187 Ill.Dec. 774; United States v. Oberhellmann, 946 F.2d 50,

When a judge is embroiled in controversy with litigant he must recuse himself for a contempt trial and be replaced by another judge. Mayberry v. Pennsylvania, 400 U.S. 455 (1971); Kaeding v. Collins, 281 Ill.App.3d 919 (1996), See also Johnson v. Mississippi, 403 U.S. 212 (1971); Holt v. Virginia, 381 U.S. 131 (1965). [Even in the absence of a personal attack on a judge that would tend to impair his detachment, the judge may still be required to excuse himself and turn a citation for contempt over to another judge if the response to the alleged misconduct in his courtroom partakes of the character of ”marked personal feelings” being abraded on both sides, so that it is likely the judge has felt a ”sting” sufficient to impair his objectivity. Taylor v. Hayes, 418 U.S. 488 (1974).]; Offutt v. United States, 348 U.S. 11 (1954) [In a situation in which the record revealed that the contumacious conduct was the product of both lack of self-restraint on the part of the contemnor and a reaction to the excessive zeal and personal animosity of the trial judge, the majority felt that any contempt trial must be held before another judge.]; A judge called upon to act in a case of contempt by personal attack upon him, may, without flinching from his duty, properly ask that one of his fellow judges take his place.Cornish v. United States, 299 F. 283, 285 and Toledo Newspaper Co. v. United States, 237 F. 986, 988;

[2] The petitions were on behalf of Annabel Melongo who at the time was at the beginning of being jailed for two years on an eavesdropping case, later declared unconstitutional, Cook County Circuit Court no. 10 CR 8092, and remote computer tampering – false allegation by criminal CEO of Save-a-Life Foundation, Carol Spirrizzi, after Melongo was fired from this company, Circuit Court of Cook County case no. 08 CR 10502-01, which Ms. Melongo won, and which had been fraudulently brought against her to cover-up the criminal acts of funding fraud by Save-a-Life Foundation and several politicians who failed to use due diligence in donating public funds to this phony foundation, suggesting money laundering, including Lisa Madigan, Arne Duncan, Jan Shankowski (sp?) and many others, which has been exposed extensively in the news by Emmy award winning reporter, Chuck Goudie, and on the Internet. It is shocking that the U.S. Attorney has not yet indicted Ms. Spirrizzi. FBI Special Agent Depooter testified at Melongo’s eavesdropping trial, which ended in a hung jury, prior to the case being called unconstitutional and dismissed, that Melongo did present some evidence about SALF to the FBI.

Activists ask U.S. Supreme Court to appoint special master to review and correct lawlessness in Cook County Courts

with one comment


This motion to the United States Supreme Court requests that the high court consolidate the issue of lawlessness (denial of civil rights including right to petition for writ of habeas corpus, due process, compulsory process, trial by jury, right to counsel, speedy trial, substitution of judge for cause [bias] and ADA accommodations) in three cases before the court: 12-6561, 11-10814, and 11-10790. It exposes the pervasive and systemic ignorance, maliciousness, cover-up of corruption, and denial of civil rights by judges throughout the Circuit Court of Cook County.

The cases which the activists, Linda Lorincz Shelto, PhD, MD, and Mr. David Bambic are requesting to be consolidated over the issue of appointing a special master to investigate the Cook County Courts and institute systems of oversight of the judges and judicial education including civilian, non-court related oversight include the following three cases:

Motion to consolidate cases over issue of lawlessness in Cook County Courts exhibited by Judges: Michael McHale, Joseph Kazmierski, David Haracz, Peggy Chiampas, Jorge Alonso, Veronica Mathein, Kathleen Pantle, Marie Kuriakos Ciesil, Mary Margaret Brosnahan, Kenneth J. Wadas, Colleen A. Hyland, Noreen Daly, William D. Maddux, Timothy Evans, and E. Kenneth Wright Jr.

Original Petition for Writ of Mandamus for violating habeas corpus rights and holding persons for trial without probable cause.  Case No 12-6561

Exhibits for above: Volume 1, Volume 2, Volume 3.

Original Petition for Writ of Mandamus in United States Supreme Court due to Trial Court (Judge  Peggy Chiampas) ignoring due process and civil rights (speedy trial, compulsory process, ADA accommodations, substitution of judge for cause [bias]).  Case No 11-10814

Motion for rehearing of 11-10814 after dismissal without comment.

Motion to add two more questions for rehearing concerning refusal to allow petition for writ of habeas corpus to be filed and heard in 11-10814

Dr Shelton asks U.S. Supreme Court to appoint special master to remove corruption in Circuit Court of Cook County

with 5 comments


On this site and in their pleadings before the Circuit Court of Cook County, the Illinois Appellate Court and the Illinois Supreme Court, Dr. Linda Shelton, Dr. Sheila Mannix, David Bambic, Milijana Vlastelica, Frank Epstein, Sandra Padron, Karyn Mehringer, Mic Gerhardt, Maisha Hamilton, Vernon Glass, Naomi Jennings, Annabel Melongo, Davy Cady and many others have shown that the Circuit Court of Cook County has allowed its judges to disregard constitutional rights such as due process, speedy trial, the right to petition for writ of habeas corpus, the right to receive notice and discovery before trial, the right to have enforced state laws as to trial and court procedure, and the right to confront witnesses against them and not have court decision made based on hearsay.

The extreme lawlessness that Shelton has documented on this site is now before the United States Supreme Court in three Petitions for Certiorari and for Mandamus and five more are in preparation. You can read them in the links at the end of this post.

In the pleadings that follow, David Bambic and Linda Shelton are asking the United States Supreme Court to review this extreme lawlessness that has caused wrongful decisions in their cases, but that also is so pervasive that hundreds if not thousands of divorce cases, orders of protection cases, criminal cases, probate cases, and child custody cases must be overturned or retried.

The state of anarchy in Cook County due to judicial ignorance, corruption, misconduct, arrogance, and maliciousness is so extreme, so harmful to children, families, the elderly, and innocent accused of crimes particularly whistle blowers who are being retaliated against, as documented in these three U.S. Supreme Court proceedings that Shelton has requested the U.S. Supreme Court to appoint a special master to review the policies and procedures of the Circuit Court of Cook County and to institute a judicial education and supervision program so that the right to petition for writ of habeas corpus, the right for a speedy trial, the right to compulsory process, the right to notice and discovery before trial, as well as other rights guaranteed by the Bill of Rights including due process or following the statutes and rules of the state and the federal codes and rules are preserved and no longer violated pervasively.

Shelton now calls for Cook County Board President Tony Preckwinkle to fire Chief Judge Timothy Evans for failure to ensure that the judges in the Circuit Court of Cook County follow the Constitutions of the United States and Illinois and the laws of the State of Illinois and these United States.

We can no longer allow this pervasive, malignant lawlessness to run our courts in Cook County and be steered by the corrupt government officials and police officials that have been doing so.

Wrongfully Convicted Asks Jurors to Read Appeal – Then Help Correct Their Error – Brought on by Extreme Prosecutorial Misconduct

leave a comment »


I want to publicly ask the 12 jurors who wrongfully convicted me to read my appeal, find out what was withheld from them illegally; find out what lies were told by the prosecutor and what judicial misconduct was done by the judge that denied me a fair trial. Then tell me they still think I’m guilty. 

I believe jurors should be held accountable and should have to read the appeal.  If they then think I should have been found innocent, they should speak out about the corrupt system and how prosecutorial and judicial misconduct was used to bias them and wrongfully convict me.

My appeal can be read at the following link:

The jurors names and general place of residence are as follows, which is public record, as they were stated in open court and their names are signed on the guilty verdict form. I wrote them after the trial asking them to review information that was withheld from them and to tell me if this would have changed their decision. NOT ONE had the courtesy to write me with an answer. I promised not to write them again, so I am simply putting this on the Internet and hoping their conscience bothers them enough to read it and correct their harmful mistake as the right thing to do:

Shelton Requests Chief Judge Evans Resignation

with 6 comments


STOP ILLINOIS CORRUPTION

Linda Lorincz Shelton, Ph.D., M.D.,

Founder and Chief Executive Officer

708 952-0040

 

April 19, 2009

 

Chief Judge Timothy Evans

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:

 http://illinoiscorruption.blogspot.com/2009/05/judge-maddux-runs-law-division-cook.html

 Circuit Court of Cook County Family Division is Criminal Enterprise and committing RICO violations. See federal RICO suit brought by Dr. Sheila Mannix:

 1:09-cv-00103

 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.

Sincerely,

Linda Lorincz Shelton, Ph.D., M.D.

Incompetent Illinois Appellate Judge Sheila O’Brien Again Violates U.S. Supreme Court Precedent

with 2 comments


Illinois Appellate Court First District Judge Sheila O’Brien should be impeached for official oppression and extensive violationof her oath of office. See all posts on this blog relating to her.

As is described in my other posts, I am appealing a criminal case against me for a fraudulent Illinois charge of Medicaid vendor fraud in regards to the jurisdictional issues, not in regards to the not guilty jury verdict. See:

https://cookcountyjudges.wordpress.com/2009/04/24/judge-paul-p-biebel-jr-violates-constitutional-right-illegally-withdraws-notice-of-appeal/

Ignorant Presiding Criminal Court Judge Paul P. Biebel Jr. and Trial Judge Jorge Alonso lost jurisdiction for everything except ordering the transcripts after I filed a Notice of Appeal on March 9, 2009. Yet Judge Biebel, without jurisdiction, sue sponte ordered the Notice of Appeal not to be transmitted to the IL Appellate Court in violation of Supreme Court Rules requiring the N of A to be transmitted within 5 days, and . This also closed the case and the Court Clerk then told me the record of appeal would not be transmitted to the IL Appellate Court. Judge Biebel should be removed form the bench for violation of his oath of office and violation of my constitutional right for an appeal and redress of grievances.

After I hand-carried the N of A to the IL Appellate Court, the Clerk of the Court, David Ravid, docketed the case and told me that Judge Biebel’s order does NOT apply to the IL Appellate Court. Then I showed the docket sheet to the Cook County Criminal Clerk and she said she therefore would transmit the record on appeal to the IL Appellate Court as per the IL Appellate Court the case was now active.

Ignorant and malicious Judge Alonso denied my motion for free transcripts for appeal despite declaring me indigent. This is a violation of U. S. Supreme Court holdings and stare decisis. Judge Alonso is blatantly violating case law and violating my constitutional right to an appeal. This is called official oppression or official misconduct and he should be criminally prosecuted and removed from the bench for violation of his oath of office, for this as well as for allowing the prosecution against me to proceed without ANY personal or subject-matter jurisdiction.

I filed three motions to the IL Appellate Court. One for indigency which today was granted by IL Appellate Court Judge Sheila O’Brien, but she added an order sue sponte against my wishes appointing the State Appellate Defender to be counsel for the case. I intend to  pursue this appeal pro se. There was NO motion for appointment of the State Appellate Defender. 

The State Appellate Defender can order transcripts free, but the Circuit Court of Cook County Reporter is more than a year behind in providing transcripts and therefore is impeding MANY appeals as they cannot be written without the transcripts being filed.

Incompetent and careless Judge O’Brien also denied the following two motions to order Judge Biebel to vacate and expunge his illegal, unauthorized order prohibiting the clerk form transmitting the N of A and therefore preparing the record on appeal. Judge O’Brien is violating law by ignoring IL Supreme Court rules and case law which state that a lower court loses jurisdiction once a N of A is filed and that the N of A MUST be transmitted by the clerk as a matter of law.

Judge O’Brien also violated case law and costitutional right by denying motion to order Judge Alonso to order the transcripts to be prepared free of charge by the court reporters and filed with the Clerk of the Circuit Court of Cook County. Judge O’Brien MAY NOT overturn constitutional rights to a direct appeal in a criminal case and for redress of grievances by ACTIVELY, WILLINGLY AND KNOWINGLY depriving an indigent defendant of transcripts. This denies due process and is a violation of Judge O’Brien’s oath of office. It also is the criminal act of official oppression and official misconduct.

The next step is to request an IL Supreme Court supervisory order to intervene and overturn Judge O’Brien’s unconstitutional and either incompetent or malicious, arrogant orders. I will also move the 7th Circuit Federal Court of Appeals for an order that the illegal actions of Judge O’Brien serve as a State waiver of the State’s right to insist I exhaust state remedies, where my petition for habeas corpus is pending a request for a certificate of appealability after it was denied for failure to exhaust state remedies. I have requested review under the public interest exception to the mootness doctrine and I’m challenging the ruling that I didn’t exhaust state remedies as I did present the jurisdictional issues to the IL Supreme Court twice in a direct appeal and in a habeas petition regarding a criminal contempt finding by the Trial Court in the vendor fraud case, where I allege that since the vendor fraud case lacks jurisdiction and is null and void ab initio, then the criminal contempt finding cannot be held to stand in the presence of a null hearing. The Illinois Supreme Court twice CHOSE to deny leave to appeal and leave to file petition for habeas on these issues. They should NOT be given a third bite at the apple.

MOTION TO ORDER JUDGE JORGE ALONSO TO VACATE HIS ILLEGAL ORDER DENYING INDIGENT DEFENDANT FREE TRANSCRIPTS FOR APPEAL AND THE PREPARATION OF THE RECORD ON APPEAL

 

            NOW COMES, Linda Shelton, Defendant, Pro Se, who respectfully moves this Honorable Court to order Trial Court Judge Jorge Alonso to vacate his illegal order denying indigent defendant free transcripts for appeal and the preparation of the record on appeal. In support of this motion Defendant states as follows:

            Defendant, pro se, filed Notice of Appeal (Exhibit A attached to concurrently filed motion) with the Clerk of the Circuit Court of Cook County (“Clerk”) on March 9, 2009 and requested the Clerk to prepare the Record on Appeal.

            Defendant, pro se, filed Motion for Free Transcripts to be prepared and for Court Clerk to Prepare Record on Appeal without charge and presented this motion to Judge Alonso on March 20, 2009. Judge Alonso orally denied the motion without legal basis and in violation of established law. (Exhibit B) Trial Court previously declared Defendant indigent.

            It is clear from Stare Decisis, Illinois Supreme Court Rules, and common knowledge that indigent defendants must be granted free transcripts of the proceedings and free preparation of record on appeal for transmission to the Appellate Court. Failure to do so denies the defendant’s constitutional right to due process and redress of grievances.

            Therefore, Judge Alonso has violated the constitution, Illinois Supreme Court Rules, and higher court precedent in denying free transcripts and preparation of record of appeal.

 

            WHEREFORE, Defendant, respectfully moves this Honorable Court to issue an order reversing decision of Judge Alonso denying the record of proceedings and record on appeal without cost to indigent defendant.
