ALDERMAN EDWARD BURKE USES JUDGES AS HIS WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION

Here is a man who authored and orchestrated every Civil Rights Act perpetrated by Judges and engineered Treason offenses violating every provision of the KU KLUX KLAN ACT of 1871 at an innocent man of color.

Alderman Edward Burke has utilized every member of the Democratic Party to help him frame an innocent man of impregnating a woman who was in fact impregnated by her natural biological father who was a Police Officer, this was the second daughter he impregnated;

Alderman Edward Burke used African American Judge R. Morgan Hamilton as she perjured and falsified court documents aided and abbeted in a criminal conspiracy as Burke had a CTA attorney in Ronald Bartkowicz manufactured a warrant against CTA employee Badge 26115 saying he was not an employee to prevent CTA from paying him back wages resulting from his work-related injury because members under the Daley administration stole his wages while off injured on duty;

Because R. Morgan Hamilton was a good servant for her Messiah in Ed Burke he made her a permanent Associate Judge never to be voted for retention on the bench.

William Stewart Boyd was perhaps the slickest deceptive manipulator ever to wear a robe negotiated an Associate judge position out of Edward Burke because he knew I never owed child support and was aware of all criminal acts of the parties who was responsible for framing me kept his mouth shut.

Alderman Edward Burke had appointed legal aid attorney who was the former Senior attorney in legal aid refused to provide me any legal representation saying their were too many judges involved, Burke assigned him to my case where he placed me in Contempt of Court for Allegedly owing child support.

Alderman Edward Burke had access to medical records of my families medical history where therapy was being provided had Donald Jonker to assist him the same DCFS attorney who was responsible helping him take an African American child from her mother.

Alderman Edward Burke orchestrated DCFS to manufacture abuse charges against myself as my daughters therapist (Marcia Ward) provided altered medical records impersonating a Doctor and not a therapist.

Alderman Edward Burke has made it his mission to destroy me and my family at all costs had my sick brother arrested and placed in Cook County jail because the United States Attorney refused to prosecute my brother for allegedly spitting on President Obama’s Secret Service, hew was transported to St. Bernard Hospital spent 2-3 weeks hospitalized, he was not out 3-4 days before he was arrested name placated all over the media.

Rosemary Higgins was in Juvenile court where DCFS lodged bogus charges against my mother for child Lock-out which was not true a lot of irregularities had took place in that case but Judge Higgins ignored them never provided her with a court order, as for myself I had been before her Aunt Lauretta Higgins who refused to address the wrongful Acts of Perjury Fraud etc., Judge Higgins said she had no jurisdiction., the matter was appealed before the 1st Division where her husband Warren D. Wolfson was the Judge Denying every motion presented before the courts.

Rosemary Higgins became the Judge in my brothers case had him locked up for 6 months behind a cell in prison on June 6, 11 two Doctors testified he was unfit to stand trial, initially Public defender was removed from the case, a Shelli Blair (Air Head Public Defender) was assigned when I suggested that a Motion be filed substituting Judges Monday June 10, 2013, her reply, you guys had a lot of bad luck with judges or misfortunes but I assure you she is not with Warren D. Wolfson anymore, my reply, don’t care.

Tuesday June 11, 2013, Theresa Nelson was back on the case, the States Attorney was arguing my brother was unfit for trial mentally, but the Public Defender was arguing he was fit; needless to say Judge Higgins agreed with the States Attorney finding him unfit mentally very smart but the Doctors testimony was to compelling.

Under the present administration of Democrats with the Political Machine they find ways to oppress people of color by whatever means necessary so as to generate revenue for all white attorneys as blacks and Hispanics are used as a means of income for Terrorist running the City.

No white person under any magnitude is subjected to this level of Terrorist treatment in this city.

COUNTY OF COOK         )
                                                              AFFIDAVIT
Joe Louis Lawrence being first duly sworn on oath deposes and states as follows:
1.)    I am Joe Louis Lawrence, Counsel Pro Se.
2.)    That on June 2, 3 Craig Fulton was witnessed by neighbors and Police in the neighborhood stealing Appellant’s personal effects from home (10058 South Vernon) where a U haul truck was involved.
3.)    Monday June 4, 2013, Appellant attempted to file a Police report but was informed by the desk Sergeant in order for a crime to be established, Appellant had to first contact the landlord and request all personal effects because he could have moved the possessions into storage;
A.)  Sergeant reviewed Appellant’s court documents and said he had no right removing any of your “sh*t” but before a crime is established, he have to refuse to return all of your possessions;
B.)  Pursuant to the Sergeant’s directive said Notice was texted to Craig Fulton “Craig Fulton consider this proper notice seeking all personal property effects at 10058 South Vernon, You are to inform me where and when to pick up all my property and effects immediately, you have never responded to any pleadings or filed an appearance in the Appellate Court”. Respectfully submitted, Joe Louis
4.)    That Craig Fulton never responded a Police Report was filed (RD# HW 305160) said officers said the court was to be notified and that Detectives would be in contact with the Appellant within 5 days of filing the report;
5.)    That on January 18, 2013, near and around the hours 10:00am and 10:30am Cook County Sheriff were witnessed by Police personnel and neighbors using a Battering Ram forcibly entering the residence of 10058 South Vernon, locking him out of said home with all noticeable personal effects visible;

6.) That because Craig Fulton never legally owned the property but has been very successful with incredible support induced reliance on a number of entities could not access the authority of a licensed and bonded locksmith, to enter the residence  had the Sheriff to act outside their jurisdiction by committing a felony (breaking and entering into a home);

7.)    That this is not the only time judges within the Cook County have acted outside their jurisdiction Judge Bartkowicz (former workman’s compensation attorney with CTA) appointed to case 88 D 079012  issued a Bogus warrant primarily to prevent Appellant from returning back to work with the CTA from a work-related injury, to prevent him from receiving back wages see unlawful1.blogspot.com, Post 7-23-2012 how both judges corroborated their roles in a Criminal Terrorist Civil Rights Conspiracy;
8.)    That Appellant never owed CHILD SUPPORT but certain judges without jurisdiction noted in said Chronology of Unlawful Contempt Charges, see unlawful1.blogspot.com, Post 8-30-2012, how Judges engaged in a plethora of Racist Civil Rights Acts unlawfully incarcerating Appellant for standing up to Racial Injustice;
9.)    That certain Cook County judges, State Judges do not honor the State or Federal laws but exercise fraternal laws of their order demonstrating above the law tactics used their influence and intimidating tactics against certain CTA administrators making sure they did not reinstate Appellant back to work from a work-related injury, see Post 8-9-2012, said Post gives a meticulous account on the heinous deceptive practices Powerful Corrupt white men exhaust oppressing an innocent Appellant simply because of his ethnicity;
10.)    That because Alderman Edward Burke (it is no secret!) is the orchestrator and manipulator of all judges assigned where the Appellant is concerned has manifested a vengeance against him for standing up to the Democratic Political Machine;
11.)    That allegedly under the authority of Alderman Edward Burke Judge George Sculley, Jr.and Leonard Murray ignored every document Appellant has presented to the court demonstrating “FRAUD” “TERRORISM” “CORRUPTION” “TREASON” allowed Craig Fulton and all related Terrorist conspirators to do whatever they desired against an innocent Appellant;
12.)    That on March 5, 2013, Appellant’s Affidavit recorded “That Appellant has been many times denied and ignored by the likes of judge Thomas Hoffman et al., see unlawful1.blogspot.com April 11, 2012 Post how certain judges ignore the laws and act outside their jurisdiction”.
13.)    That Judges under Alderman Edward Burkes control do not honor the laws of the United States Constitution as they engage in Tyranny Acts of Mass Destruction they are America’s Al Qaeda as they commit Acts of Terrorism wearing robes; 
C.)       Properly alleged facts within an affidavit that are not contradicted by counter affidavit are taken as true, despite the existence of contrary averments in the adverse party’s pleadings. Professional Group Travel, Ltd. v. Professional Seminar Consultants Inc., 136 ILL App 3d 1084, 483 N.E. 2d 1291; Buzzard v. Bolger, 117 ILL App 3d 887, 453 N.E. 2d 1129 et al.
D.)       The above is Basic State Law—Alderman Ed Burke lacked an intelligent understanding of Constitutional law; thereby, engaging in a plethora of corrupt Civil Rights violations so as to prove his KINGSHIP over the Democratic Political Machine and cover-up where they are intellectually challenged in the laws!
14.)    Judges under Alderman Burkes authority  openly with vicious arrogance for the laws ignored the United States Constitution violated all of the following federal Laws of  Section 1983 of U.S.C.S. contemplates the depravation of Civil Rights through the Unconstitutional Application of a Law by conspiracy or otherwise. Mansell v. Saunders (CA 5 F 1A) 372 F 573, especially if the conspiracy was actually carried into effect, where an action is for a conspiracy to interfere with Civil Rights under 42 U.S.C.S. 1985 (3), or for the depravation of such rights under 42 U.S.C.S. 1983, if the conspiracy was actually carried into effect and plaintiff was thereby deprived of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured by the United States Constitution and Laws, the gist of the action may be treated as one for the depravation of rights under 42 U.S.C.S. 1983, Lewis v. Brautigam (CA 5 F 1a) 227 F 2d 124, 55 Alr 2d 505, John W. Strong, 185, 777-78 (4 the ed. 1992).
A.)   Jennings v. Patterson, 488 F. 2d 442, equal access to public facilities. The court found that the plaintiffs had been “denied the right to hold and enjoy their property on the same basis as white citizens.” Jennings suggests the potential usefulness of the equal benefit clause in guaranteeing full and equal enjoyment of public property and public services.” Developments in the Law section 1981, 15 Harv. Civ. Rts. —- Civ. Lib. L. Rev 29, 133 (1980).
B.)   Scott, 377 Mass. 364, 386 N.E. 2d 218, 220 (1979) See Lopez-Alexander, Unreported Order No. 85-279 (Colo. May 3, 1985) (Judge removed for, inter alia, a persistent pattern of abuse of the contempt power. The Mayor of Denver accepted the findings of the Denver County Court Judicial Qualification Commission that the judge’s conduct could not be characterized as mere mistakes or errors of law and that the conduct constituted willful misconduct in office and conduct prejudicial to the administration of justice that brings the judicial office into disrepute). Canon Ethics where there is a pattern of disregard or indifference, which warrant discipline.
C.)  That all Judges complicit with Alderman Ed Burke has further violated other legal Constitutional citations of the laws, The Supreme Court of Georgia removed a judge from office for disregarding defendant’s Constitutional rights, including refusing to set appeal bonds for two defendant’s in timely fashion, issuing bench warrants without probable cause, and forcing a defendant to enter a guilty plea in the absence of Counsel. The Court stated, that the judge’s “cavalier disregard of these defendants’ basic and fundamental constitutional rights exhibits an intolerable degree of judicial incompetence, and a failure to comprehend and safeguard the very basis of our constitutional structure Id at 735 See also In re Hammel, 668 N.E. 2d 390 (N.Y. 1996). (Judge removed for improperly jailing defendants for their alleged failure to pay fines and make restitution which the judge had imposed, disregarding the defendant’s basic constitutional rights).
D.)  That because every Judge who has signed orders against Appellant denying him relief falls outside their judicial authority and because they have committed “FRAUD” the following law is applicable here Adoption of E.L.. “A VOID JUDGEMENT OR ORDER” is one that is entered by a court lacking jurisdiction over the parties or the subject matter, or lacking the inherent power to enter the particular order of judgment or where the ORDER was procured by “FRAUD”.
 .  A judge’s disrespect for the rules of court demonstrates disrespect for the law. Judges are disciplined under Canon 2A for violating court rules and procedures. Judged ignored mandated witness order in attempt to accommodate witnesses’ schedules; Citing Canon 2A the court noted, “[a] court’s indifference to clearly stated rules breeds disrespect for and discontent with our justice system. Government cannot demand respect of the laws by its citizens when its tribunals ignore those very same laws”)
As a non – white man this is how members of the Democratic Political Machine have infiltrated the Democratic Party waging war and committing genocide on innocent Free Born & raised United States Citizens in the aforementioned.

8 Judges Rated Poorly By 2 Or More Lawyer Groups

Bar To Their Re-election?

8 Judges Rated Poorly By 2 Or More Lawyer Groups

October 23, 1998|By Abdon M. Pallasch, Tribune Staff Writer.
    • 204

More than a quarter of the 261 full circuit judges in Cook County–72 in all–could lose their jobs on Nov. 3.

Every six years, county judges must come up for retention and get 60 percent “yes” votes from voters to keep their jobs. In addition, 44 lawyers are running for 25 vacancies on the bench.

Eight of those up for retention were “not recommended” by two or more bar groups, which rate the judges before the election. They include:

– Judge Susan J. McDunn, who ordered a rare hearing for an uncontested adoption by a same-sex couple.

“Why are we doing something differently because the adopting parents are gay and lesbian couples?” asked adoption attorney Rick Lifshitz, who has followed the case.

McDunn said she could not comment on a pending case.

– Judge Jeffrey Lawrence has made inappropriate comments to women attorneys who practice before him in divorce court, according to the Chicago Council of Lawyers.

Lawrence denies that. “I am a respecter of women,” he said. “My wife is an accomplished hospital administrator.”

– Judge Edna Turkington “exhibits on occasion a wholly inadequate grasp of the legal issues before her” according to the Chicago Council of Lawyers. Turkington declined to comment.

– Judge Llwellyn “Lynn” Greene-Thapedi “can be indecisive and inconsistent in her rulings,” the Chicago Council of Lawyers said in its evaluation. “Fully half of the lawyers we interviewed who have appeared before Judge Greene-Thapedi in her current assignment recommended against retention.”

Greene-Thapedi declined to comment.

– Judge Leida J. Gonzalez Santiago had only seven years’ experience practicing law when she was slated for her seat by her husband, Miguel Santiago, a former alderman being tried in federal court on ghost payrolling charges.

The Chicago Council of Lawyers and the Chicago Bar Association said Gonzalez Santiago, who sits in divorce court, has little grasp of the law. She declined to comment.

The other three who received “not recommended” ratings from two or more groups are Judge William D. O’Neal, who sits in the Markham suburban court, Criminal Court Judge Janice R. McGaughey and Judge Dorothy F. Jones, the only judge who refused to participate in any bar group’s evaluation process.

Leaders of the city’s legal community urge voters not to take a “throw the bums out” approach to judges because “some of the best and the brightest” are on the ballot, said Chicago Bar Association President Leonard J. Schrager.

Presiding judges found “highly recommended” by some bar groups for cleaning up some troubled courts include Nancy Sidote Salyers at juvenile court; Timothy C. Evans at divorce court; and Patrick McGann at traffic court.

Eight bar groups unanimously found 63 of the 72 judges running for retention recommended.

In an effort to boost voter interest in the often-ignored judicial retention elections, the Chicago Bar Association is printing up 300,000 copies of its judicial evaluations to pass out to voters before the election, Schrager said.

Concise and calling for the public to wake up. Keep the heat on Mark ! Not surprising that Mr Berrios’ name comes up when property tax “irregularities” are brought out for his acquaintances. Curious about the special exemption that judge took since I could not locate a word about it on the assessor’s website – or is it just for the “connected”.

The Crook County courts are the worst! Judge Nancy Katz had a case before her but then her Lesbian partner died and she was allowed a paid sabbatical for months. She has the reputation of being a man hater and has a practice & pattern of Alienating Parents from their children. In one instance one of her cases was sent to the court room to Judge Jacobias (removed since from family court) who in open court stereo typed a Hispanic father as “macho and violent” by just looking at him. Stopped visitation of his child who identified abuse at hands of step father. Jacobias sent her to therapist (friend) Beth Wilner who contributed to Alienation and advised medicating child who attempted suicide numerous times and pleaded with all professionals to be with her father. Judge Katz had final hearing 3yrs later & made final decisions & forced bankrupt father to pay child support to abusing Parental Alienator. Father has not seen child for 2yrs. Child remains institutionalized. Court room cartel destroying our children! No one is watching or doing something about abuse by Judges.

NO JUSTICE NO PEACE's avatarNO JUSTICE NO PEACE· 1 day ago

All Family Court and Probate Court Judges – look to maximize money for lawyers, GALs, therapists, etc. who are friends of the judge.

Judge Katz – lesbian with a cause.

Judge Mathein – hates anyone who fights for justice.

Judge Nega – believes that the law and the Constitution do not apply to family court. Never wants to hear the law, just character assassination.

Judge Haracz – Plain stupid. Afraid to make a decision.

Judge Lopez – believes that the impossible is easy. (“You want a Modification in child support, just ask for it.” But show me a judge that will actually grant it.)

Judge Fernandez – In her own little world.

None of the judges we identified returned our phone calls.

December 7, 2013 § Leave a comment

For many of us, the only image we have of a judge comes from movies or TV shows. For the next four nights, we’re going to show you a lot of them by asking a simple question: Who is judging the judges?  You might be surprised. Our joint WGN investigation with the Medill Watchdogs of Northwestern exposes where the majority of least qualified judges are coming from.

For the first time ever, as the curtain draws back allowing cameras in Illinois to peek into some courtrooms, viewers are getting a glimpse at the absolute power behind the robe.  Cameras have yet to be allowed in Cook County and unless you are before a judge, you probably can’t name any of the 400-plus judges or which ones you voted for in the last election.

Two decades ago, the leaders in Springfield tried to fix the problem of too many unknown judges by breaking up the massive list into smaller bite-sized subcircuits. It seemed like a win-win, these subcircuits. Neighbors could meet the judicial candidates because they lived there. The winning judge would be from their community bringing more minorities to the bench. In Cook County, that even meant Republicans. A good idea with good intentions, but like the old proverb says, the road to hell is paved with good intentions.

When asked what he thought of subcircuits, Anton Valukas, a lawyer and Chairman of Jenner & Block said, “I think they’re terrible.”

Nearly 30 years ago, Valukas as U.S. Attorney oversaw the prosecution of one of the largest court scandals in the United States: Operation Greylord. Charges of bribery, fixing a murder case, even a wiretap in a judge’s chamber led to 92 indictments including the conviction of 15 judges. According to Valukas, “All of a sudden everybody got religion, as they say in the trade. So I would say corruption is not the issue right now.”

Instead, Valukas says the problem is weak judges created by the subcircuit system.

“The issue right now is competence and the fact that you continue to have politics involved in this process always opens the door to the potential of corruption in the future. So why have a system that does that?” he says.

He added that unlike judges who run countywide, the candidates who run for one of the 15 smaller subcircuit seats rarely face tough challengers. Most are always backed by the Democratic Party, they rarely have to prove their judicial chops to win.

“I think it probably has not been the best way to improve the quality of our judiciary,” said Cook County Commissioner Larry Suffredin. Suffredin is also the attorney for the Chicago Bar Association, a group that rates the qualifications of judicial candidates. “I think if you look at the judges who have had problems in the last 20 years, a greater percentage of them have been elected from the subcircuits than have been elected countywide.  I think those who are elected countywide are vetted in a much different way.  It’s a tougher race to run.  I mean this is a huge county.  And they have to present their credentials to a lot of different people,” said Suffredin.

Like the Chicago Bar Association, a host of other legal watchdogs judge the judges on integrity, legal knowledge, temperament, and even punctuality. We checked the rankings and last year, a half-dozen judges elected to the bench failed to win the approval of three or more groups and five of those were subcircuit judges.

According to Suffredin, “I think what they do is create an artificial world in which people run.  One of the things we see is that the candidates who run in the subcircuits in a greater proportion choose not to be evaluated by the Bar Association, choose not to present their credentials to a broader group of citizens to determine why they would be good judges or bad judges.” In other words, they’re avoiding being judged.

Newly-elected Judge Daniel Degnan from the 3rd subcircuit didn’t bother to submit his qualifications. His dad was a top strategist for Mayor Daley. Prior to Election Day; one by one all his opponents dropped out, including a sitting judge. Degnan waltzed unopposed to the bench. Judge Kimberly Lewis was never vetted failing to submit her credentials to any legal watchdog. She beat out a sitting judge ranked qualified.

In 2010, four judges failed to win approval, three of them from subcircuits. In 2008, six out of seven judges not recommended came out of the subcircuit. And in 2006, five out of six judges were also from a subcircuit which raises the question, who’s judging the judges? According to Valukas, “No one! In the subcircuits even fewer than no one if that’s possible. You’re talking about in the subcircuits the likelihood of the person who is judging the judges and most likely to make the decision who’s going to be elected judge is some political boss.”

Take the case of Judge Leida Gonzalez-Santiago. She benefited from the subcircuit law which you recall encouraged neighborhood diversity. She was the first Hispanic woman elected to the bench even though the Tribune reported a Hispanic Bar Association called her unqualified.  Yet she won with the backing of House Speaker Mike Madigan and her own husband, a state representative. And once a judge is elected, it’s pretty much a job for life no matter how competent. Six years later, she won again even after a lawyers group blasted her for putting kids at risk during custody battle cases.

Valukas called it, “A crisis in your world. They’re before a judicial system asking somebody to make a decision on something that could be incredibly important to them. Anything from a divorce case, a child custody case to a property damage case you name it and they are before someone who may not even know the rudiments of the law and whose temperament maybe an absolute disaster. That’s not a way you have a system.”

None of the judges we identified returned our phone calls. The issue of qualification is only one subject we examined. Tomorrow we’ll look at how a system designed to bring minorities to the bench is being abused.

MOTION FOR SUBSTITUTION OF JUDGE LEIDA SANTIAGO

Comes JXXXXXX A. XXXXXX, Petitioner, prose (Here after “JXXX”), pursuant to 735 ILCS 5/21001(a)(3) et seq. and moves this Honorable Court for a Substitution of Judge Leida Santiago for cause.  Relevant parts of the rules of civil procedure are as follows;

(735 ILCS 5/2 1001)

Sec. 2 1001. Substitution of judge.

(a) A substitution of judge in any civil action may be had in the following situations:

(3) Substitution for cause. When cause exists.

(i) Each party shall be entitled to a substitution or substitutions of judge for cause.

(ii) Every application for substitution of judge for cause shall be made by petition, setting forth the specific cause for substitution and praying a substitution of judge. The petition shall be verified by the affidavit of the applicant.

(iii) Upon the filing of a petition for substitution of judge for cause, a hearing to determine whether the cause exists shall be conducted as soon as possible by a judge other than the judge named in the petition….

1.   The Illinois Appellate Court has held that once a motion for substitution of judge for cause is properly brought, trial judge loses all power and authority over case except to make necessary orders to effectuate change.  People v. Bell, 276, Ill.App.3d 939, 658 N.E.2d 1372, 1378 (1995).

2. Judge Santiago’s actions throughout these proceedings have been contrary to the Illinois Code of Civil Procedures and the IMDMA Act, which has deprived JXXX of his right to due process of law. Judge Santiago on numerous occasions has allowed Respondent’s counsel to make baseless allegations against JXXX for 10-20 minutes at a time, while at the same time denying JXXX the opportunity to respond or prove the allegations false.  The judge then made substantive rulings and orders based on those one sided hearings.  In the many appearances in this case, Judge Santiago has shown bias and prejudice against JXXX and a disregard for JXXX’s rights.

3. Against JXXX’s wishes, on several occasions, Judge Santiago has held secret meetings in chambers with attorneys only, specifically denying JXXX the right to attend and/or his court reporter. In these secret hearings, substantive decisions are made without JXXX having the opportunity to attend or to hear what has been discussed.  JXXX has the right to attend all meetings concerning his own case before this court.

4. In open court, Judge Santiago displays an unprofessional camaraderie with opposing counsel, Marcy Newman, and at the same time displays a blatant animosity towards JXXX, and his previous attorneys.  Judge Santiago (a female) engages in discriminatory banter with Newman (a female) aimed at JXXX (a male) often during these proceedings, in what clearly appears to be a man hating club.

5. Judge Santiago has allowed Respondent to file numerous “Emergency” Petitions that were not emergencies at all. These false “Emergency” petitions were ruled upon without an opportunity for JXXX to respond or present facts and evidence in opposition.  The judge has allowed Respondent to use these false emergencies as a litigation strategy that has run up attorney fees and deprived JXXX of valuable marital assets.  With each false emergency motion filed, the judge never inquires, or cares, as to whether or not any attempt has been made to contact JXXX and settle the alleged emergency.   Judge Santiago’s allowance of these multiple false Emergency Petitions has in fact denied JXXX of his due process rights under the law and assisted the Respondent in fraudulent legal practices.

6. Throughout these proceedings, Judge Santiago has abused her discretion to the detriment of JXXX.  Some of the many abuses are as follows;

7. Under threat of contempt, Judge Santiago forced JXXX to sign a quitclaim deed of the marital residence over to Respondent, during one of the false “emergency” hearings.  The single family home represented the largest single asset of the marriage and was arbitrarily handed over to the Respondent without the benefit of trial, or witnesses, or evidence presented. JXXX never received any agreement as to the price of the home or the terms of split.  This constitutes a fraud upon JXXX and Judge Santiago is a coconspirator.  Judge Santiago entertained Respondent’s counsel’s numerous false claims, false allegations, and outright lies that resulted in JXXX’s signature on a quitclaim deed and loan agreement that has now made JXXX liable for a 30 year loan of $171,000, all in a divorce proceeding to which JXXX is supposed to end up independent and separated from the Respondent.  Judge Santiago blindly accepted Respondent’s counsel’s  unsubstantiated lies, while dismissing JXXX’s repeated pleas for facts and proof before he signed loan papers.

8. Under threat of contempt, Judge Santiago forced JXXX to sign the Quit Claim Deed under the premise that he would be getting his half of the money for the home from the proceeds of the Respondent’s alleged loan.  After signing under duress, JXXX received nothing.  Judge Santiago then allowed Respondent to hold the proceeds in an escrow account with no accounting to JXXX or his previous attorneys, and allowing JXXX’s funds to be considered subject to Respondent’s income tax liabilities, Mary Doheny’s legal fees, Kerry Smith’s fees, etc.  It appears that Judge Santiago conspired with Respondent’s Counsel to force JXXX to sign new loan papers on a property that they were taking away from him to finance the legal costs of the divorce.  Or in simpler terms, to line the pockets of the attorneys, who are in the same club with Judge Santiago.

9. In an earlier hearing, Judge Santiago found JXXX guilty of Contempt of Court for alleged Discovery violations that were in fact no violation at all. Respondent filed a Motion to Compel Discovery that did not contain any “statement” that “reasonable attempt” was made to “resolve differences”, as per  Supreme Court Rule 201.  Respondent made no attempt to contact JXXX concerning discovery, nor was any list of specific items of discovery presented to the court.  Regardless of the mandates of Rule 201, Judge Santiago held JXXX in contempt of court, without ever giving him a chance to provide whatever the Respondent allegedly needed.  It is an abuse of discretion to disregard the requirements of a Supreme Court Rule and the contempt order against JXXX is void. However, this void order remains hanging over JXXX’s head until JXXX can seek a remedy in the Illinois Appellate Court.

10. Judge Santiago also found JXXX guilty of willful contempt regarding non payment of support in the amount of $850 per month. The amount of support is more than JXXX can afford and was based on the false claim that Respondent earned no more than $40,000 a year, when in fact her 13.3.1 disclosure filed April 2007, showed she earned $80,000 net income in her hair cutting business.  JXXX filed a motion to modify support, but the motion was arbitrarily thrown out by Judge Santiago as a punishment for the above mentioned false Discovery violation. Judge Santiago ignores material facts, but accepts blind allegations made, not by witnesses under oath, but by Respondent’s counsel’s rhetoric.  Another abuse of discretion.  Additionally, JXXX has been disabled for many years and unable to work and earn enough to pay the amount of support.  Judge Santiago has arbitrarily declared JXXX to NOT be disabled, despite JXXX being qualified as disabled by the Social Security Administration as of October of 2007, and despite the professional opinion of a highly qualified Cardiologist.  It is an undeniable fact that JXXX suffered a catastrophic aortic dissection and anuerysm which has left him disabled, but due to bias against JXXX, Judge Santiago arbitrarily disregards these supported facts, and instead, accepts the unsupported rhetoric of Respondent’s counsel.  Judge Santiago issues rulings against JXXX almost exclusively based on unsupported rhetoric.

11. On a regular basis, Judge Santiago makes faces, rolls her eyes, groans, sighs, and makes utterances negatively toward JXXX and his previous counsel.  Judge Santiago has stated, “I have a migraine, you would be better served if you came to an agreement before you appear before me.”

Judge Santiago’s attitude and mannerisms reflect an extreme arrogance and display a dismissive attitude towards JXXX and a complete lack of respect.  But NEVER toward the female Respondent or the female Respondent’s attorney. Judge Santiago dismisses JXXX as a peasant “pro se” who “must follow the rules”, but at the same time, both the judge and Respondent are allowed to ignore all the rules of civil procedure.

12. On December 16, 2010, JXXX appeared before Judge Santiago concerning no less than 11 pending motions and responses.  Judge Santiago and Respondent’s attorney again engaged in critical banter and derogatory comments directed at JXXX for bringing a court reporter into the proceedings, but made the negative comments before the court reporter was set up.  In a ridiculous order, Judge Santiago set all 11 motions for a 30 minute hearing on January 11, 2011. Among the motions is JXXX’s Motion to Compel Discovery.  In the 3 ½ years of this litigation, Respondent has refused to give JXXX the most basic financial records of BDZR’s sole-proprietor business, BDZRs Hair Design, needed for trial on February 22, 2011.   Judge Santiago has ignored and brushed aside JXXX’s repeated pleas for help in obtaining discovery from the Respondent. As of this date, JXXX does not have the necessary financial records from Respondent to litigate at trial, yet Judge Santiago acts too busy to care. This blatant violation of JXXX’s due process can only have been accomplished with the help of a judge that is bias against JXXX.  JXXX’s Motion to Compel has been pending for over 6 months and is now set to be heard one month before trial which will not allow JXXX reasonable time to use the discovery to prepare for trial.  Even worse, Judge Santiago stated that if the 30 minute hearing on January 10th  was insufficient time, then she will hear the remaining motions the day of trial. However, ruling on JXXX’s Motion to Compel Discovery the day of trial is meaningless, and an abuse of discretion. This is the work of a judge that is out to defeat JXXX and assist Respondent.

13. Judge Santiago has been made aware of the fact that Respondent has been carrying on an intimate relationship with another married man prior to December of 2009. Although this violates several court orders and ethical conduct, it is most detrimental to the 4 minor children involved in this case.  The following are but a few of the violations allowed by Judge Santiago;

a. The minor children have had the married man, and other unrelated males, forced on them.

b. Respondent allowed the married man to sleep in the marital home with the minor children present several times in December of 2009.

c. Respondent allowed the married man to take the youngest 7 year old boy home with him and sleep in the same bed.

d. Respondent and the married man told the minor child to lie to his father, JXXX, about what had happened.

e. Respondent allowed the married man to take the 7 year old child to bars multiple times while he drank alcohol and smoked cigars.

f. Respondent encouraged the married man to threaten and harass JXXX on the phone and through texts from Respondent’s phone and the married man’s own phone.

g. Respondent allowed the married man to threaten and physically accost JXXX, the oldest son who is 17 years old, on multiple occasions.

h. Respondent allowed the married man to bite the 7 year old son and the 11 year old daughter on the legs while they were in bed at a hotel room trying to go to sleep.

i. Respondent and the married man drink excessively in front of the children.

j. Respondent allows the married man to smoke cigars regularly in front or the children.

k. Respondent has become so inebriated she cannot walk or stand up without assistance in front of the children while drinking with the married man .

Respondent has also passed out from alcohol consumption while with him.

l. Respondent allows the married man to make direct derogatory statements about JXXX to the children.

m. Respondent has allowed and facilitated the married man in threatening JXXX mentally, physically, and emotionally in front of the other children and in private.  Respondent and the married man have exhibited physical, mental, and emotional abuse on JXXX in the presence of the other children.

n. Respondent has broken down 3 doors in the marital home in anger and fits of RAGE and possible drunken or drug-induced RAGE. JXXX’s office door was obliterated twice with wrenches and hammers, JXXX’s bedroom door was broken down with Respondent’s body flung against the door to gain access so the married man could verbally assault JXXX all in front of the other minor children. The kids observed all of this and called 911 to report it.

o. Respondent has sent JXXX hundreds of harassing, disparaging and racially hateful texts and phone calls.

p. Respondent has filed multiple false police reports against JXXX and JXXX, their oldest son.

q. JXXX has e-mails from the minor children to JXXX and their attorney, Mary Doheny confirming what they hear, experience and detailing what is going on at the home.

14. Judge Santiago has full knowledge of the above mentioned violations of previous court orders and 750 ILCS 501/, but has done nothing to stop it, or to protect JXXX or the children. Again, this is blatant abuse of discretion, not to mention bias against JXXX.

15. JXXX is currently forced to act pro se because Judge Santiago has allowed the Respondent to file numerous false “emergency” petitions and many other frivolous motions that have used up all of JXXX’s financial resources.  JXXX now acts with a legal disadvantage directly due to Judge Santiago’s negligence in recognizing and stopping Respondent from filing false documents in this case.

16. Judge Santiago has given Respondent an unfair advantage by allowing her to argue her Motions or Petitions out of order and before Petitioner’s Motions that had been first filed, and then assessing penalties against Petitioner which disallow JXXX to defend himself against the allegations by Respondent.

17. Judge Santiago ruled in favor of the Respondent filed another Emergency Petition with this Court on December 16, 2010 to recover a @$4000 refund check as part of the proceeds of $12,000 she was hiding in these Divorce Proceedings from this Court, JXXX, and the IRS. The money represented left over funds that Respondent denied existed on JXXX and BDZR’s 2008 US Federal Income Tax return and 2 separate Petitions to this Court.  Judge Santiago agreed with Respondent that there existed an emergency that Petitioner, JXXX, may abscond with the refund proceeds by forging BDZR’s signature on a 2 party check and ordered the money be returned to Respondent and held in Respondent’s counsel’s escrow account.

18.    Judge Santiago has ignored police reports concerning Respondent breaking into JXXX’s home office [twice] and stealing business records. These business records were originals with no other copies available, resulting in complete loss of valuable and necessary records. Additionally, Respondent has deleted valuable and necessary computer files and Judge Santiago does nothing to stop it.

19. Judge Santiago’s favoring toward Respondent has allowed Respondent to dispose of Marital assets without hearings, and without compensation to JXXX, including assets that were exclusively valuable to JXXX.

20. Judge Santiago, at a court appearance in March 6, 2009, threatened JXXX with a remark of even more punitive rulings if JXXX forced a hearing on this matter. Judge Santiago made it clear to JXXX that if JXXX did not accept her ruling, he really wouldn’t like the next one. Judge Santiago’s words, “I’m sorry, did I just not rule in this matter? and “you may not like the next one even more” sent a clear message to JXXX of her intentions and bias.

21. Judge Santiago allowed Respondent’s counsel to question a court reporter, JXXX hired to record a hearing on whether JXXX would be forced to unjustly sign a quit claim deed and other loan documents. The original proceeding was immediately dropped even though it had already started without JXXX present in the courtroom, after Judge Santiago was informed there was a court reporter present. Judge Santiago then called the attorneys into her private chambers for a private meeting. JXXX’s court reporter was denied access despite JXXX’s requests and protest otherwise. When the lawyers and judge re-emerged from Judge Santiago’s chambers and entered the courtroom, Judge Santiago allowed Respondent’s counsel to question and harass said court reporter about who she was, where she was from, how much she was paid, who paid her and who hired her for court that day, over JXXX’s attorney’s objections as to the whole line of questioning and behavior.

22. Judge Santiago, by her rulings and actions in this courtroom, has jeopardized JXXX’s health and his share of the marital assets, including the 2000 Chevrolet Suburban vehicle, and the property located at 179 Downing Road, Buffalo Grove, IL, the marital residence, and his position or standing as far as child custody and arrangements.

23.      Judge Santiago’s prejudice against JXXX is so egregious that it is impossible for JXXX to receive a fair trial, or any fair pretrial hearings.  Judge Santiago’s actions and inactions has caused JXXX to pay tens of thousands of dollars in unnecessary legal fees over the past 3 ½ years.

PRAYER FOR RELIEF

Wherefore, JXXXXXX XXXXXX, Petitioner, prays that this Honorable Court enter an order granting the motion for Substitution of Judge Santiago, and appoint a new fair and impartial  judge to preside over this case.
