    It's sad, BUT, it is most deffinantly happening, even in Illinois Chicago, court rooms;MISconduct by judges AND attorneies!

    NOTE: What do you think about the Illinois ARDC not adherring to attorney Blake Horwitz and his partner, Erica Faaborg, who committed misconduct and when a complaint was filed against horwitz(lead atty.), with the ARDC, a litigant was told(oddly), that, "because Horwitz had never been prosecuted, he won't this time either".

    ATTN: WHEN, did it become non prosecutorial to prosecute an attorney because he has been getting away with MISconduct in other situations?

    MANY, has been charged and sentenced for the first time, but that doesn't mean they should not have been years ago, because they've been COVERED by copprpt judges!

    ALERT! WHEN, does judge James EGAN(in courtroom 2205 at the Daley Center), become UNtouchable, because he LIED, stating (during a Tribunal), that "You can't sue the city of Chicago";"The city of Chicago, can't be sued".?

    ATTN: WHEN, is it proper of professional, for Illinois AG, LIsa Madigan, be UNtouchable, for being prosecuted for 'TREASON'(charged by Dr. Linda Shelton), because she has been HIDDING behind SA Anita Alverez?

    Madigan KNEW, that I WON a criminal case(I'm Certfiied and will NEVER allow ANYONE to tamper with my Credentials),, YET, she had the AUDESITY to send Ia letter, stating that, "because I was charged with Battery, 50% of my winnings, would be deducted", then interferred in I CONSOLIDATING ALL of the court cases surrounding that 2 1/2 year battle with that case, NOT having representation because every lawyer I asked for help, heard her name and RAN, like a chicken with their head cut off!

    ATTN: I STILL, have the oportunity to take BOTH cases to the U>S>S>C>, for I have NOT done so yet.

    These "judges", MUST be stopped for until they are, they will always have the excuse of cases causing a "backlog"!

    ALERT! The SECOND Police Accountability HEARING, will take place on tomorrow:

    Date: Saturday, 02.23.2013

    Time: 11a to 5p

    Location: 1212 E. 59th Street, at the Ida Noyle Hall, at the University of Chicago.

    These JON BURGE/Peterson "cops", MUST be monitored/prosecuted and be made accountable for their MISCONDUCTS!

    ALL are WELCOME!

    It is now time for the convicted justice to spill the beans on just how corrupt the entire Supreme Court of Penna. really is. These people are serious and they have taken down you and your family. For the sake of the Commonwealth speak out.

    Vegas line is the JCB pulls the trigger. Why should anything change.

  • ?????

    Believe you me, she will not be deciding cases or writing opinions for the States Highest Court from a jail cell in Muncy because that is where her recent plane ticket is taking her. Theft of Services is infamous and a crimen falsi adjudication i.e. crime of deceit which is contrary to public trust. There is no way she will get her seat back in the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania. The Melvin Era is over-
