Mass support for Shelton in court and in letter writing campaign to stop retaliation against whistle blower

leave a comment »


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 July 20, 2017 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! You know that I expose corruption in Illinois and Cook County, particularly family, probate, and criminal courts,  through my web sites including: https://cookcountyjudges.wordpress.com, http://chicagofbi.wordpress.com, http://illinoiscorruption.blogspot.com, and http://prosechicago.wordpress.com.

There has been a ten year attack against me in retaliation for above and I need public support in a huge way.

PLEASE WRITE THESE PEOPLE AND ASK THEM TO INVESTIGATE – SUGGESTED LETTER FOLLOWS:

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!

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 decedent’s trust) who had forged a signature of a decedent 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. The decedents funds and property were not even under the jurisdiction of the probate judge as they were in trust, but the probate judge essentially rewrote the irrevocable trust and issued orders as to who owns the trust property, without jurisdiction, in response to a bribe.

In addition the beneficiary presented to Judge Riley a transcript of testimony by the falsely alleged trustee that she and the decedent had testified in court several  years prior that the beneficiary was doing a wonderful job taking care of her father and that the fraudulently 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 and inherited home including all  property in it (estate and any of beneficiary’s property which the forger decided belonged to the estate) 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.

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?

For more details about this case read Exhibit E here and my Attorney Regulatory Commission Complaint against Peck, Bloom LLC here and evidence of the bribery in Exhibit M of previous link to habeas petition which is repeated here.

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

with 16 comments


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.

A video about promoting equal parenting and actor Baldwin’s new book about divorce and the need for equal parenting:

Hitler – Chief Judge Timothy Evans now has completely taken away our rights

with 3 comments


If corruption in family courts described in this blog is not enough including diverting funds from VAWA and Social Security Title IV-D to enrich judges, court-appointed attorneys, and court-appointed evaluators, now ADA accommodations are also at risk in the courts, pro se litigants are being deprived of equal protection in the courts, and we are being thrown back into the stone age in Cook County by new rules from Chief Judge Evans.  Please remember to demand fix to VAMA funding being diverted for corrupt purposes before passage. Many of our legislators are totally ignorant of what is actually happening with VAWA funds.

Chief Judge Evans enters order which prohibits cell phones in courthouses where criminal matters are heard is acting like Hitler.

Now defendants cannot contact their attorneys when their attorneys are late, cannot contact their families, cannot have their electronic calendars with them when they are representing themselves. The latest Illinois Supreme Court ruling requiring Court Clerks to allow the use of rolling scanning devices to allow persons to avoid huge page copy charges in the Clerk’s offices and in Court libraries are at risk with the bar on bringing in electronic devices.  The disabled who need assistance of electronic devices will have to ask for special permission to bring them into court buildings including palm pilots and cell phones. Many disabled persons take public transportation and need to have cell phones with them at all times to contact their doctors or others for assistance.  Now they will have to pay $3.00 to put them in tiny lockers at courthouses, but the courthouses don’t have enough little pay lockers to hold all the phones that people will have to lock up, that will no longer be allowed in courthouses.

In domestic and civil matters pro se litigants and their witnesses will be at a disadvantage.  This applies in courthouses where there are eviction cases, divorce cases and every other kind of civil case.

If they ban pro se litigants from having these devices, then they should ban the attorneys and judges from having them too so pro se litigants are not at a disadvantage.  If judges wants to go back to the stone age, then let everyone do this.  Their computer system is already in the stone age so that it is impossible to query so that the courts can cover up their corruption!

Help make a massive protest about this!! Hitler reigns in Cook County.  First the right to petition for habeas corpus has been denied, perjury by sheriff deputies is rampant, and my right to notice for a criminal trial, right to have dismissed legally insufficient complaints, right to speedy trial, right to compulsory process, and right to have access to my court file and pen and paper during trial has been eliminated – now this!!  See my new post coming soon about my recent misdemeanor conviction where all these rights were denied!

Help spread the word!

Released On 12/12/2012

Chief Judge Evans December 17, 2012, interview with CBS 2 Chicago on cell phone ban.
Circuit Court of Cook County Chief Judge Timothy C. Evans today announced beginning January 14, 2013, the public will not be permitted to bring cell phones and other electronic devices into any Circuit Court of Cook County courthouse facility except for the Richard J. Daley Center Courthouse.  The ban will affect only those courthouse facilities in which criminal matters are heard.*

Included in the ban are all electronic devices capable of connecting to the Internet or making audio or video recordings, including laptops and tablet computers. Chief Judge Evans said, “Judges brought their concerns to me that people attending court proceedings were using their cell phones to photograph witnesses, judges, jurors, and prospective jurors.  They also said persons appeared to be texting testimony to witnesses waiting their turn to testify outside the courtroom, while others were attempting to stream live to media comments by judges from the bench.” “The court is sending a strong message to gang members and others that any attempts to intimidate witnesses, jurors, and judges in court will not be permitted,” said Chief Judge Evans.  “The ban will help to make sure that justice is properly done by preserving the integrity of testimony and maintaining court decorum.” Anyone violating the ban could face prosecution for contempt of court. The new ban on cell phones and electronic devices in all courthouse facilities in which criminal matters are heard is taking place pursuant to General Administrative Order 2012-8 entered by Chief Judge Evans today, December 11, 2012. Cell phones and electronic devices will continue to be allowed into the Daley Center but the order restricts use of all such devices to public areas, away from courtrooms.  Primarily civil matters are heard in the Daley Center, along with some quasi-criminal, misdemeanor, and traffic offenses. In addition, the order exempts persons on official business with proper identification who will be allowed to bring such devices into courthouse facilities in which criminal matters are heard.  The use of all such devices by these persons will be restricted to public areas, away from courtrooms.  The following persons are exempted from the ban: current or former judges; licensed attorneys; all law enforcement officers; all government employees; persons reporting for jury service; jurors (subject to the authority of the trial judges); building and maintenance workers, equipment repair persons and vendors; and anyone authorized by order of court. Members of the news media are also exempted from the ban.  Following the anticipated approval of the circuit court’s application for extended media coverage by the Illinois Supreme Court, the media will also be allowed to use their electronic devices in the courtroom. The new policy also provides for judges to be able to enter orders permitting the use of electronic devices in any courtroom in any court facility as they deem appropriate.

*There are 13 courthouse facilities into which the public is prohibited from bringing cell phones and electronic devices as follows:
  • The George N. Leighton Criminal Court Building at 2600 S. California Ave., Chicago
  • The Cook County Juvenile Center, 1100 West Hamilton Ave., Chicago
  • The Domestic Violence Courthouse, 555 West Harrison St., Chicago
  • The Second Municipal District Skokie Courthouse, 5600 Old Orchard Road
  • The Third Municipal District Rolling Meadows Courthouse, 2121 Euclid Road
  • The Fourth Municipal District Maywood Courthouse, 1500 Maybrook Drive
  • The Fifth Municipal District Bridgeview Courthouse, 10220 S. 76th Ave.
  • The Sixth Municipal District Markham Courthouse, 16501 S. Kedzie Parkway
  • 5555 W. Grand Ave., Chicago (First Municipal District criminal branches 23 and 50)
  • 2452 W. Belmont Ave., Chicago (First Municipal District criminal branches 29 and 42)
  • 155 W. 51st St., Chicago (First Municipal District criminal branches 34 and 48)
  • 727 E. 111th St., Chicago (First Municipal District criminal branches 35 and 38)
  • 3150 W. Flournoy St., Chicago (First Municipal District criminal branches 43 and 44)

Better Business Bureau Complaint against Peck Bloom, LLC law firm and Judge James Riley for corruption

with one comment


Beware of Peck Bloom, LLC law firm regarding probate matters and trusts.  They will laugh all the way to the bank after they set you up, encourage dissent among beneficiaries after you die, and then eat your estate up in their fees while the beneficiaries get nothing but their bills. Slimebags of the upteenth degree! Tell me your stories, gather your evidence and let us take them down with criminal charges and attacks against their law licenses! Send emails to picepil@aol.com.

NOTE THAT SINCE THE BBB REFUSES TO LOOK AT THE COMPLAINT UNTIL IT IS ADJUDICATED, I HAVE COMPLAINED TO THE ILLINOIS ATTORNEY REGISTRATION AND DISCIPLINARY COMMISSION AND THE COMPLAINT IS STILL PENDING.

I have made a complaint against attorneys Kerry Peck (photo at right with glasses) , Timothy Ritchey (photo at right – younger guy no glasses) and Katie McClanahan, of Peck Bloom, LLC to the Better Business Buruea for bribing Judge James Riley in the Cook County Probate Division by contributing to his election campaign for the Illinois Supreme Court, which he just lost, in order to make Judge Riley illegally, immorally, criminally, and in violation of his oath of office, ignore two transcripts from 2007 from my sister Alice Dale and father, the late Allan Levente Lorincz, M.D.. They first contributed $10,000 to the election of Judge Theis for Supreme Court who won.  Then at the time of an inportant hearing in this case they contributed $3150 to her opponent Judge Riley the judge on my probate case to fix the case and ignore the forgery of a trust and fraud upon the court (false statements proven by transcripts from 2007).

NOTE THE PICTURES OF THESE TWO SLEEZY SCUMBAG ATTORNEYS WHO SUB JORNED PERJURY, COERCED THEIR MENTALLY ILL CLIENT TO LIE, MADE FRAUDLENT AND FALSE STATEMENTS TO THE JUDGE AND BRIBED JUDGE JAMES RILEY! Note young Ritchey’s permanent smirk!

Two partners in their law firm, Peck Bloom, LLC, Cameron “Camie” DeGuerre and Peter Coolas also paid into the Judge Riley Election Campaign Committee.  Note  pictures of the two partners who likely also were trying to assist their partners in fraudulently influencing Judge Riley. The Chicago Council of Lawyers determined that Judge Riley was “not qualified” to be an Illinois Supreme Court judge.  Why would they contribute to the campaign of an arrogant, incompetent, judge who accepts bribes?

I am also pleading with the public to write the U.S. Attorney General and ask him to investigate this, as it does not only affect me.  This law firm is known for stretching out cases by making false statements and bribing judges, by encouraging arguments among beneficiaries thus increasing their fees, and then getting unreasonable sanctions imposed on beneficiaries by corrupt judges like Riley in order to enrich themselves.  We must stop them.  Ask your attorneys to make complaints too.

Many attorneys know about corruption but are failing to make complaints to the ARDC (attorney regulatory and disciplinary commission) or JIB (judicial inquiry board) because they are afraid if they complain that they will get adverse rulings from judges (which is true – if you don’t condone corruption as an attorney in Chicago, you won’t have any business). However, there is an Illinois Supreme Court decision (Himmel) that says that if an attorney fails to report corruption that he is aware of, then he is guilty of condoning it.

Alice and my father both had testified in another case several years ago that my sister is mentally ill and cannot take care of family affairs outside  her immediate family, that I moved in with my father in 2006 as he was deteriorating from Parkinson’s disease after my mother died 10 years prior, and I had been eating dinner with him daily for those 10 years and helping him with his house and personal affairs. I will post the transcripts shortly.

The bribe was used to cause Judge Riley to dismiss my challenged to this forged and incomplete trust and custodial claim without a trial based solely on hearsay and these false statements.

The bribe was also used to influence Judge Riley to ignore the fact that my attorney, Robert Held from Harrison & Held, LLP (at outstanding and honest law firm that is reeling from this corruption and has made a complaint to the Attorney Regulatory and Disciplinary Commission [ARDC]), which I will post shortly, gave  them discovery  – while illegally converting this hearing on the motion to dismiss for discovery violation into a de facto trial on the issue of the trust challenge (denying notice and due process which are constitutional rights), ruling instead that Held had failed to provide them discovery and therefore Judge Riley illegally dismissed my statutory custodial claim and trust challenge and ruled that I had not cared for my father, had not loved him, had verbally abused him and exploited him, and that my claims were frivolous. The transcript where they lied will be posted shortly.

Judge  Riley then to really destroy me ordered me to forfeit my inheritance to pay their fees (so far $245,000) and ordered that they may evict me, a disabled person whose inheritance was supposed to go into a special needs trust and the house was supposed to go into the special needs trust. I will post the trust document (forged and valid) and the orders shortly.

I have an appeal pending in the Illinois Appellate Court which I will post on line.

You can read my motion for stay of Riley’s orders to the Illinois Appellate Court here that they immorally and illegally denied. I am filing papers with higher courts.

You can make complaints with the Better Business Bureau here. My complaint is as follows:

Peck Bloom, LLC
105 W Adams St Floor 31
Chicago IL 60603-6227

Complaint Description:
Kerry Peck, Timothy Ritchey, & Katie McClanahan represent my mentally ill sister, & they are manipulating her into lying to the probate court that my gravely ill father who died in 9/7/10 changed his trust on his deathbed & removed me as trustee & made her the trustee. The trust was not signed by my father in both required spots – HIPAA release & signature.

The signature was forged & I have proof because his signature was normal & not a smudge just a few weeks prior. They did this to take over the trust & steal my father’s estate with attorney fees.

They also bribed the judge with contributions to his election committee within weeks of him making an adverse decision against me dismissing my trust challenge & statutory custodial claim without a hearing based on fraudulently presented “discovery violations.” They claim my attorney did not give them discovery which is a lie & both my attorney & myself have complaints pending with the ARDC & JIB.

The bribery made the judge ignore 2007 transcripts in a court case where my now deceased father and sister (falsely purported trustee) both testified that I lovingly cared for my father, moving in with him in 2006, after eating dinner with him after my mother’s death for the previous 14 yrs, took care of him and his property & estate, & even took care of my sister’s family’s finances, & she testified that she is mentally ill & her doctor told her to stay away from problems & family affairs as she can’t handle them.

The judge ignored these transcripts and faked in open court that he believed the lies from Peck Bloom attorneys that I didn’t live with my father, didn’t love him, financially exploited him & physically abused the aides, as well as verbally abused him. This is completely false & we have many affidavits as well as aforementioned transcripts to prove this but we never had a trial as the judge after he was bribed (the election commission web site proves these attorneys contributed to his election campaign for justice of the IL Supreme Court at the very time he was making these rulings) made this immoral & illegal ruling dismissing my trust challenge & claim & then ordering me to forfeit my inheritance to pay their fees saying my claims were “frivolous”.

My father had made a special needs trust for me as a disabled person to be funded with a 1/4 of the estate at his death. He had bought a house for my brother who has bipolar disorder & paranoid delusions about me & had verbally abused our father & sexually abused me as a teenage. He had contributed $300,000 to my sister’s house who has severe borderline personality disorder, has tried to kill herself many times & has squandered all the money given to her.

That is why she wants to steal my inheritance. My father said in all the trust documents for the past 20 years that I was to inherit his home which was to be put into my special needs trust. The Trustee was supposed to pay the mortgage on this home & a condo as the first act after his death & sell the condo. His estate was worth about 2 million, but my sister has squandered most of it & the rest is going to these unscrupulous attorneys. Now they are trying to evict me.

They also ransacked my home & stole everything of value including my passport & wallet & house keys during the last month of my father’s life while I was in hospital.

I am still trying to fight this with an appeal in court, but am losing because they refuse to have a hearing & the judges are corrupt & against me because I maintain a web site exposing their corruption & felony conduct & I am trying to have the FBI arrest them by giving them evidence.

See: https://cookcountyjudges.wordpress.com & http://illinoiscorruption.blogspot.com

So based on lies and fraud, my father was abused & died in a hospital instead of at home with me at his side, & they have stolen my inheritance & home & property & are putting me on the street. This is political as I have evidence against the IL Attorney General & several judges [of corruption and felony crimes and they have to shut me up. They have to shut me up.]

Your Desired Resolution:
I want the attorney regulatory and disciplinary commission (ARDC) and judicial inquiry board (JIB) as well as the policing authorities to act and arrest these attorneys and the judge and a new judge to remove my sister as trustee and restore my access to the estate funds and property so that I can divide it up, take care of everyone the way my father had instructed me to do and make sure no one else is abused and exploited by this corrupt law firm (Peck is politically powerful and was the president of the Chicago Association) and this corrupt judge. Thank God he lost the election.

This needs to be exposed in the press. I don’t think you will get involved because it is political and your Chicago/Illinois office will get repercussions if you get involved, but I want to inform you about this.

I probably will get clobbered because corruption is now the norm in this country and especially in Illinois. So all I can do is fight in the courts knowing that the IL Appellate Court will ignore law and fact and back these corrupt attorneys and judges and that the IL Supreme Court and U.S. Supreme Court will not take the case as they don’t have to and it is not important enough for them.

This will just prove that American Justice is a Myth. I suppose I will have to go to a women’s shelter in Canada as a dual Canadian American citizen and then I may be able to get health care.

I have already informed the ARDC of this law firms fraud upon the court and I am forwarding this data on bribery too.

My reply to the BBB on 11/9/12 :

“Am I to understand that you are not interested in investigating and exposing when a law firm bribes a judge to fix a case!?!?

Bribes paid to fix case and elect Judge James Riley to the Illinois Supreme Court

with 2 comments


This is a page from the Illinois Election Board web site showing the contributions made for the election of Judge James Riley as an Illinois Supreme Court Justice in the 2012 election.

It also reveals that attorneys Kerry Peck, Timothy Ritchey, Peter Coorlas, and Cameron DeGuerre of Peck Bloom LLC each contributed to the Committee to Elect Judge Riley.  This was a week before Judge Riley upon the motions of these two attorneys ignored forgery and fraud in my probate case concerning the estate of my late father and made an adverse ruling against me as a disabled person, illegally dismissing my trust challenge due to this forgery and fraud, and ordered that my entire inheritance of $250,000 and a house be forfeited to pay their fraudulent attorney fees.

They are representing my crazy sister Alice Dale. See my motion to the Illinois Appellate Court for a stay of court orders which was illegally denied. Read my motion for stay that gives proof of the forgery and fraud. They forged my father’s name on an amended will and trust on his deathbed and then they lied in court that I did not live with my father, take care of him for three years, and they also made the dispicable lie that I didn’t love him and extorted and abused him.

This is how Illinois Corruption works.  They steal estates of the disabled, elderly, and mentally ill in a systemic fashion, laughing all the way.  You should see how Judge Riley and attorneys Ritchey and Peck wink at each other and smile in court.  It makes me puke.  When is the FBI  going to arrest them?

Please write U.S. Attorney Eric Holder and ask him when they are  going to believe Dr. Linda Shelton and her fellow whistle blowers, and come and interview us and review the evidence we have.

In order to discover the bribery and corruption all you have to do is find out the names of the judge’s and lawyer’s associates, wives, children and relatives and the names of the litigants and then cross-reference them with the contributions made to elect judges and officials.  Most of the bribery is laundered through election campaign committees.

Money is also laundered through real estate transactions in other states where the properties are bought for ridiculously low amounts with case – for example the dozen or so  properties bought by IL Attorney General Lisa Madigan in Maricopa County Arizona for $1.  Then cash changes hands secretly.  The FBI could follow the bank deposits if they wanted to.

Then money is also laundered through phoney foundations such as Save-A-Life-Foundation where Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan gave this foundation $50,000 out of the Illinois Attorney General’s budget (your tax dollars) and it was never accounted for, yet no charges have been brought against its CEO. Some of this is explained in this petition for writ of mandamus presently pending before the U.S. Supreme Court.

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:
