The Disciplinary Board of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania’s documented and advertised goals are to protect the public, maintain the integrity of the legal profession and to safeguard the reputation of the courts.

Protecting the Public? That’s great… um… but from WHAT are they protecting the public? What does this mean? I was clearly NOT protected. And there are many others who feel like me.

The Disciplinary Board consists of 13 members, of whom 11 are attorneys.

LAWYERS ARE PROFESSIONALLY FORBIDDEN TO TAKE ANY ACTION WHICH WOULD EXPOSE CORRUPTION OR ADVERSELY AFFECT THE INTEGRITY AND REPUTATION OF THE JUDICIARY, AND OF OTHER LAWYERS.

When you file any professional complaint against a lawyer or judge, your complaint is reviewed by lawyers. Lawyers who are professionally FORBIDDEN to take action which would expose corruption or adversely affect the integrity and reputation of the judiciary and of other lawyers.

YES, FORBIDDEN TO TAKE ANY ACTION. If they do, they are subjected to disciplinary action. (I am not certain if it is possible to request a non-lawyer investigator.)

The self-policed judicial branch of Pennsylvania government is prevented from taking any action to police itself. The Disciplinary Board and the Judicial Conduct Board are staffed with lawyers who must follow their twisted codebook. While failing to responsibly police itself, the Judicial Branch of Pennsylvania Government has become a delusional self-serving organization arrogantly determined to conceal, conspire and corrupt.

So we have the answer to that question… The Public needs protection from their aggressive maintenance and clandestine safeguarding of lawyers and judges. Their Rules of Professional Conduct which subvert and undermine any sense of justice; deny victims any explanation; retaliate with malice with the only possible escape being to return and be further victimized.

An Overview of THE PROBLEM
Lawyers and judges MUST report violations of the Rules of Professional Conduct,
EXCEPT WHERE the revelation of the corruption and crimes would negatively affect the reputation and integrity of lawyers and judges;
or possibly cause their clients to lose;
or expose their clients committing perjury or other crimes.

The high moral ground of the first phrase is rendered empty and meaningless after applying the three reasonable exceptions.
1) Protect the system.
2) Protect the client.
3) Do not self-incriminate.

So what has caused THE PROBLEM. Where do the three reasonable exceptions break to the point of undermining everything?


I went to Harrisburg. I knocked on doors. Supreme Court of Pennsylvania. Judicial Conduct Board. I wanted to speak to someone about what had happened to me. Something happened which can only be described as SERENDIPITY. The people I wanted to meet were unavailable. I wanted to speak to the people at the top of the organizations that ignored me, or their second, or third, or fourth. I wanted someone to see the face of their victim. They were unavailable also.

The people I met with did not turn their backs, hang up a phone, dismiss a complaint, ignore a request for help or parrot the NO JURISDICTION script.

My encounter with these people began AFTER the Attorney General’a office sent a man to meet me on a bench in a mall at the busy entrance to their office building. I squatted on the floor, while he wasted the predetermined amount of time, not listening, refusing to look at anything, and snarking remarks from the same script. Either I was being disrespected or I am expected to believe that Attorney General Kathleen Kane is taking complaints regarding corruption of the entire Montgomery County Judiciary and Courthouse in the middle of Strawberry Square.

This has been going on since 2007. Disrespect. Humiliation. Mockery. I have been forced to persevere while having to seek justice from the same judiciary responsible for injustice. As each judge sacrificed their integrity for the prior judges, they retaliated against their the victim for surviving. Showing respect to those who disrespect me does not diminish my dignity.

SERENDIPITY.
The Justice Center in Harrisburg seemed to provide the perfect environment. There were no false reports to security stations. There was no escort.
The people opened doors. They did not shout through glass.
They walked around glass walls, opened the door.
Greetings and introductions were exchanged in the same room.
Those contacted from hallway phones, did not dismiss the person seeking information.
They asked a man in the corner office to speak to the person in the hall.
He walked to the door and welcomed me in to his office to speak.
The entire emphasis was not focused on how to end the conversation.

I requested to meet with those at the top of the organizations. I wanted to explain how their system victimized me to the point of destruction. I wanted to assure them that IT DID HAPPEN. I wanted them to meet the victim. I wanted to present how, why, when where, who and what happened. I wanted to recommend a change so it would not happen again to another person.

Not one person was available. YET, the result of the day was the most successful day in years.

Genuine, honest and sincere conversations with interested, knowledgeable and responsible people. They had no idea of who I was. There was no liability to protect. They had nothing to cover-up. There was no secrecy, no whispers, no hiding. They listened to my story. They heard my story. When I presented the problem, they appreciated that I pointed to the cause and asked their advice to work on the resolution.

The header of this web site has said the same line since I started typing. “Every person in a position to help has acted improperly in direct violation of procedures and the law preventing the resolution of any matter… they each make the situation worse… NO ONE HELPS.” On August 1, 2013, I had finally escaped and spoken to people who had not been manipulated into a liability. During the last meeting of the day, the realization that I had broken free from the manipulation hit me. It was emotional.


THE PROBLEM

Rule 1.6 Confidentiality of Information applies across the full scope of the Rules of Professional Conduct.

Rule 1.6 on the surface seems reasonable. It maintains the integrity. It safeguards reputation. BUT, IT DIDN’T PROTECT THE PUBLIC because it didn’t protect me. It prevents the me from information. It excludes me from the discussion. It undermined justice. It prevented justice. It clearly denied the Court of any appearance of impartiality. It created Ex Parte situations between the judiciary and the lawyers to the exclusion of a Pro Se litigant.

There is only one possible solution to the problem AND IT MUST be considered for immediate implementation into the Rules of Professional Conduct as this problem affects all Pro Se litigants.

1. Where one party in an action files an appearance to proceed Pro Se, RULE 1.6 CONFIDENTIALITY OF INFORMATION must be suspended for the duration of the matter. There can be no waiver of this suspension which is applicable to all persons who are subject to the Rules of Professional Conduct.

2. The 1.6 CONFIDENTIALITY OF INFORMATION is unconstitutional as it effectively denies a Pro Se litigant of State and Federally protected Constitutional rights.

3. The 1.6 CONFIDENTIALITY OF INFORMATION creates an administrative and professional burden upon the parties, agents, investigators, advisors and investigators involved in actions filed by Pro Se litigants.

4. In a nutshell, once you file to proceed Pro Se, you are excluded from any communication of lawyers errors or judicial when you go Pro Se, they can no longer speak with you about their ‘errors’. If they have no errors, you survive unscathed.

If they have no ‘secrets’ before you go Pro Se, you need to be aware that should lawyer violate a procedure. When the lawyer violates that procedure, the judge is not permitted to discuss it with you. You ask about it. You are ignored. The judge is required by 1.6 to maintain confidentiality.

Then, the real nightmare begins. If you report it to the Disciplinary Board. They will not communicate with you about it. The lawyer at the Disciplinary Board is required by 1.6 to maintain confidentiality.

Every petition and complaint causes more confidentiality. The courtroom, the Disciplinary Board, the Judicial Conduct Board. Lawyers who must follow the code. You will not be able to hire a lawyer. They will repeatedly tell you to hire a lawyer as if it would change anything.

1.6 denies you every civil and constitutional right. Apparently, the lawyers confidentiality rule is more powerful than your Constitutional Rights, State Ruights, Human Rights and evbery procedure and law in the land.

Rule 1.6 is Unconstitutional to Pro Se Litigants. It must be addressed. Every Pro Se victim that watched their life fall apart… does the above make sense to you. The worse it got, the more you tried, the harder it got, and the more ignored your situiation. The problem is now solved.

I’ve got 8 years of litigation where this explains everything. Apply it to your situation and respond to this post. hit me on Facebook. And let’s get to Washington… and get our families back.

There remains one question/issue/hurdle. I hope to have it addressed by Monday.

Tom Ball… Sorry, I didn’t find it in time.

We are long past the time where someone should make the call, accept the liability, stop the attacks, and address the situation. It is not going away until it is addressed. Someon has top take responsibility. To have integrity. I have arrived. Give me your best offer and we can end the nightmare dfor people all over the USA.


Complaints are not reviewed. Not investigated. This is not a cynical concept. It is the reality documented in the Rules of Professional Conduct. Everyone dismisses people who complain about the system. No one wants to believe the courts are that screwed up that. Their victim is the only one who must believe in the justice system. The victim returns time and time again to only find that once victimized further injustice is inescapable.

Somehow the victim has hope. Those without hope do not survive. Those with hope get destroyed.

Investigators have falsely stated they have reviewed my complaint. Do they mean reviewed as in cut and pasted a few sentences from the document into their dismissal letter? They summarily dismiss the complaint without addressing any of the reported issues. There is no reason provided for the dismissal. They send a 3 page letter full of absolute disconnected nonsense which indicates they dismissed it because they did. THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN DO TO MAKE THEM REVIEW THE COMPLAINT – OR DO IT RESPONSIBLY.

You cannot appeal their dismissal. DUH! This information is useful. It will prevent you from wasting time. There is no way you could appeal a decision when you have absolutely no information of what actions they took. They are NOT going to tell you they took no action. Ignoring the complaint is NOT an action. If an appeal process would be permitted, every appeal would be a resubmission of the entire complaint. There is no explanation. NONE. This prevents further questions.

Investigator Alan J. Davis had used “quotes” around the word “unethical” in his dismissal letter.

It is very clear why disciplinary counsel Alan J. Davis used “quotes” around the word “unethical”. The Rules of Professional Conduct require a special kind of “ethics” which clearly requires quotes to differentiate from real ethics.

In my opinion, Alan J Davis is an “idiot”. BUT, a special kind of “idiot”. See that. I learn quickly. I did it too!

His dismissal letter arrived within days of the complaint, and two days after I delivered the initial supporting documentation for each transgression. (Outlined Here) Alan misrepresents that “we have reviewed your complaint and extensive documentation in detail”. Their investigative process requires another person do the same. Kudos for that incredible efficiency – two reviews of extensive documentation in detail in under 2 days.

Does this arrogant “idiot” have any credibility? Alan refused to meet with me for a few minutes to review the complaint. I was in the lobby of his office. He was there. He was not in any meetings. He refused to permit me to simply hand him the “extensive documentation”. He “investigated” and dismissed the complaint in it’s entirety without addressing any specific content of the complaint. He used a form letter which he previously used in May 2011, but for some reason he left out the warnings about publicly revealing the complaint.

Alan, a more honest response could have gone like this…

Dear Mr Healy,
I am a “lawyer” and as such cannot investigate the crimes you have reported against lawyers and judges. If I did, the rules would require ME to be disciplined for doing so.
This is my important “job” to protect the reputation and integrity of judges and lawyers especially those who have NONE!
I did not wish to meet you personally, or speak with you because doing so would make me sad about my important job. It is easier for me to believe the victims of my dismissed complaints do not have faces, or families.
Therefore, I ignore and dismiss, while endorsing and encouraging the continued retaliation against victims like yourself terrorized by inescapable injustice to eventual suicide.
Very truly yours,
Alan J. Davis
Disciplinary Counsel


The following are some lines from the PENNSYLVANIA RULES OF PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT I had to check and confirm to make sure this document was real. It is the most twisted set of self-erasing rules I have ever encountered. At ninety pages long, it is a remarkable distortion and perversion of professional responsibilities which promote, endorse, guide and conceal activities by an attorney which any reasonable person might consider unprofessional, inappropriate, or “unethical”.

Integrity requires responsibility. Reputation is earned. Integrity based on sacrificing the integrity of others causes an inescapable injustice for the victim.


When a lawyer presents fraudulent information to the court, but does so at the request of the client. The lawyer is coerced into committing Fraud Upon The Court.
BUT, that’s OK!

The disclosure of a client’s false testimony can result in grave consequences to the client, including not only a sense of betrayal but also loss of the case and perhaps a prosecution for perjury. But the alternative is that the lawyer cooperate in deceiving the court, thereby subverting the truth-finding process which the adversary system is designed to implement. See Rule 1.2(d). Furthermore, unless it is clearly understood that the lawyer will act upon the duty to disclose the existence of false evidence, the client can simply reject the lawyer’s advice to reveal the false evidence and insist that the lawyer keep silent. Thus the client could in effect coerce the lawyer into being a party to fraud on the court.

Lawyers cannot do ANYTHING to expose corruption, crime or fraudulent conduct if it undermines the integrity of the judicial process.
CORRUPT JUDGES MAY NOT BE EXPOSED AS THEIR ACTIONS EMBARRASS THE OTHER CORRUPT JUDGES.

Preserving Integrity of Adjudicative Process
Lawyers have a special obligation to protect a tribunal against criminal or fraudulent conduct that undermines the integrity of the adjudicative process, such as bribing, intimidating or otherwise unlawfully communicating with a witness, juror, court official or other participant in the proceeding, unlawfully destroying or concealing documents or other evidence or failing to disclose information to the tribunal when required by law to do so. Thus, paragraph (b) requires a lawyer to take reasonable remedial measures, including disclosure if necessary, whenever the lawyer knows that a person, including the lawyer’s client, intends to engage, is engaging or has engaged in criminal or fraudulent conduct related to the proceeding.

Lawyers may not influence or secretly manipulate the judiciary’s impartiality, UNLESS THEY DO IT IN A WAY THAT COMPLETELY SUBVERTS THE LAW AND CAUSES THE JUDGES ACTIONS TO BE HUMILIATING WHEN EXPOSED, EMBARASSING TO ANYONE WITH A SENSE OF RIGHT AND WRONG, AND NEGATIVELY AFFECT THE INTEGRITY OF ALL JUDGES.
Then, IT’S OK.

Rule 3.5 Impartiality and Decorum of the Tribunal
A lawyer shall not:
(a) seek to influence a judge, juror, prospective juror or other official by means prohibited by law;
(b) communicate ex parte with such a person during the proceeding unless authorized to do so by law or court order;

The lawyer cannot be a witness to contested facts.
– When evidence was building which indicated to the Court that NO HEARING had taken place on the issue. Judge Page noticed that the testimony was indicative that a hearing had not taken place. When he asked Valerie Angst, AS A SWORN OFFICER OF THE COURT, she lied to the court with embellished coaching by Judge Page which assured that there was no evidence or record which could support her fraud.

Lawyer’s lies protect them from disciplinary action from the judges they protect and corrupt.

Rule 3.7 Lawyer as Witness
(a) A lawyer shall not act as advocate at a trial in which the lawyer is likely to be a necessary witness unless:
(1) the testimony relates to an uncontested issue;
(2) the testimony relates to the nature and value of legal services rendered in the case;
or
(3) disqualification of the lawyer would work substantial hardship on the client.
[1] Combining the roles of advocate and witness can prejudice the tribunal and the opposing party and can also involve a conflict of interest between the lawyer and client.

Lawyers may lie to ANYONE, at ANYTIME. It’s REQUIRED where telling the truth will violate a secret.

HONESTLY, Can you believe this is a code of conduct for the LEGAL Profession??

Rule 4.1 Truthfulness in Statements to Others
In the course of representing a client a lawyer shall not knowingly:
(a) make a false statement of material fact or law to a third person; or
(b) fail to disclose a material fact to a third person when disclosure is necessary to avoid aiding and abetting a criminal or fraudulent act by a client, unless disclosure is prohibited by Rule 1.6.

Lawyers MUST report the professional misconduct of lawyers, AND judges, UNLESS the misconduct results from manipulative actions by the lawyers planned in confidential conversations with their client. The reputation of lawyers, the integrity of judges, and the “confidentiality of their misconduct” MUST BE PROTECTED.

LAWYERS CRIMES MUST BE IGNORED TO PROTECT THE ‘ETHICS” OF THE PROFESSION.

Rule 8.3 Reporting Professional Misconduct
(a) A lawyer who knows that another lawyer has committed a violation of the Rules of Professional Conduct that raises a substantial question as to that lawyer’s honesty, trustworthiness or fitness as a lawyer in other respects, shall inform the appropriate professional authority.
(b) A lawyer who knows that a judge has committed a violation of applicable rules of judicial conduct that raises a substantial question as to the judge’s fitness for office shall inform the appropriate authority.
(c) This Rule does not require disclosure of information otherwise protected by Rule 1.6 or information gained by a lawyer or judge while participating in an approved lawyers assistance program.
Rule 1.6 Confidentiality
“approved lawyers assistance program” = IS THIS DRUG REHAB?

BREAK THE RULES AND SEE DISCIPLINARY ACTION. HA HA. NOT REALLY.
The history indicates that they only address the ridiculous complaints, usually from within their professional legal community, often for forgetting to take a class, or pay their professional registration fees.

Rule 8.4 Misconduct
It is professional misconduct for a lawyer to:
(a) violate or attempt to violate the Rules of Professional Conduct, knowingly assist or induce another to do so, or do so through the acts of another;
(b) commit a criminal act that reflects adversely on the lawyer’s honesty, trustworthiness or fitness as a lawyer in other respects;
(c) engage in conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit or misrepresentation;
(d) engage in conduct that is prejudicial to the administration of justice;
(e) state or imply an ability to influence improperly a government agency or official or to achieve
results by means that violate the Rules of Professional Conduct or other law; or
(f) knowingly assist a judge or judicial officer in conduct that is a violation of applicable rules of judicial conduct or other law.

My absolute favorite twisted rule has got to be the most clearly designed to cover up any real disciplinary activity… and deliberately deny the information from the public. It won’t even show up on the Courts web site which falsely suggests you can search attorneys who are admitted to practice in Pennsylvania, and obtain information such as an attorney’s status or whether an attorney has been subjected to public discipline.

If a lawyer IS ACTUALLY disciplined by the Board
AND the lawyer admits and accepts the Disciplinary Penalty – suspension, sanction, etc
The Disciplinary Board will conceal ANY RECORD OF THE INFRACTION AND IT WILL BE KEPT CONFIDENTIAL AND NOT INCLUDED IN THAT COOL SEARCH ENGINE THE COURTS MAKE AVAILABLE FOR PEOPLE TO CHECK OUT THEIR LAWYERS.

You may have been wondering about those who do get disciplined. Read the Opinions. Suspended for missing a class or forgetting to update their registration. NOTHING REAL THERE. ALL SMOKE AND MIRRORS.

If Valerie Angst got spanked for her deliberate actions which attempted to manipulate Judge Haaz into issuing an order without jurisdiction or authority, if she admitted it, IT WOULD BE KEPT SECRET. It would also delay the hearing until she wasn’t suspended any longer.
Perhaps for 6 months, during which time the court fails to schedule the hearing; the court fails to respond to letters regarding the delay; and accrues potential DAILY penalties against the Defendant. AS LONG AS SHE ADMITTED HER MANIPULATIVE MISDEEDS IN VIOLATION OF THE RULES, The Disciplinary Board would NEVER publicly announce the matter.

Now you might say, BUT the RULES say she must tell opposing counsel involved in pending litigation of the suspension.

Valerie Angst couldn’t get disciplined where it would reveal the complicity of the judiciary in failing to inform the Defendant.
So they hide it, she lies, the judge is forced to covers for her. But the issue is exposed in court, on the record.
The Judge prevents Defendant from asking any question which would explain the delay and potentially expose the suspension.
The Judge absurdly orders a homeless Defendant, unemployed since 2007, to pay over $300,000 in penalties for non-compliance with a Court Order.
The Judge ignored that the Defendant had complied with THAT order, and all prior orders.
The Judge ignored the evidence that the order he was enforcing was Void Ab Initio. Admitting this would expose the malice of Judge Carluccio.
The Judge ignored that the Plaintiff had committed perjury during the hearing.
The Judge ignored that the Plaintiff had never complied with ANY Court Order.
The Judge ignored that since commencement of the matter each attempt to enforce Plaintiff’s compliance with court orders was denied, ignored, dismissed or NEVER scheduled for a hearing.
Judge Page wanted to BURY the Defendant so deep in debt that he would never recover, lose hope and commit suicide.
Judge Page provided an opportunity for an Appeal to Superior Court because of his absurd order.
The new Appeal revealed the obstruction of justice and abuse of power under color of law by Judge Carolyn Carluccio who blocked the prior Appeal.
Then, Judge Page went ALL OUT – Abuse of Power under color of law, acting without jurisdiction, obstruction of justice, manipulation of court reporters, concealing exhibits presented during the hearings from the Superior Court.

The Disciplinary Board of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania’s documented and advertised goals are to protect the public, maintain the integrity of the legal profession and to safeguard the reputation of the courts. They unashamedly fail to protect the public. They focus on maintaining integrity of the legal professionals who lack integrity. They safeguard the reputation of judges whose injustice and corruption shame the Court. They conceal endorse and contribute to a ever growing injustice which attacks the public one person, one family at a time.

The Pennsylvania Rules of Professional Conduct lacks ethics, legality or any sense of honor. It delivers an ever expanding injustice while ignoring its victims. It tolerates, creates and protects corruption. It guides a self-policing branch of Government to ignore law, denies rights, and abuses it’s power without taking responsibility for it’s complete failure to deliver justice while projecting an delusion of integrity upon itself to hide it’s shame.

The Pennsylvania Rules of Professional Conduct – YOU CANNOT POLISH A TURD.

THE ONLY WAY OUT OF PENNSYLVANIA’S JUDICIAL CORRUPTION IS TO BRING IN THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.

Once again, paperwork has been delivered… Matka Boska, there’s always more paperwork.

Issue: Where are the Certificates of Service?

– Angst & Angst lawyers did not deliver the petitions to the Defendant
– Assured a lack of jurisdiction for the judge
– Lack of jurisdiction = Abuse of power under color of law


Issue: Where are the Scheduling Orders for the Hearings?

– No hearings are scheduled
– Court has no intention of holding hearings
– Prevents preparation by the Defendant


Issue: Secretly Cancelled Hearings

– Cancel hearings by email/praecipe to Court Administration WITH NO NOTICE TO THE PARTIES
– When caught (ON THE RECORD), Reschedule
– Cancel by email/praecipe AGAIN WITH NO NOTICE TO PARTIES
– Keep one hearing on schedule, if Defendant appears, prepared for all, cancel and call security.
– Keep one hearing on schedule, if Defendant does NOT appear, default DISMISS ALL PETITIONS. Failed Attempt.
– Ponder why Plaintiff did not appear even though they wrote to the court asking if the date was cancelled


Issue: The NEW Illegal Local Rule permits this to be done by email

– The certificate on the County Site corrupts security on local computers
– Grants access to all devices disks and peripherals
– The County site indicates the litigants who have permitted their computers to be corrupted
– Anyone can hack into the litigants computers to prevent email from delivery
– Attempts by the Court to create ‘no shows’ have been so clearly deliberate, now the Court can do so by email failure and blame their victim for not knowing about the hearing when their system clearly enables the action. DELIBERATE CORRUPTION BY DESIGN! ANY IT PROFESSIONAL COULD SEE THIS FAILURE TO THE PROCESS. NORRISTOWN WANTS TO CLEAR THEIR DOCKETS AND HAS THE CRIMINAL TOOLS TO DO SO. Ask Gabriele Drexler about email security.


Issue: Petitions have been withdrawn after Judge issues order granting EVERYTHING.

ISSUE: The Order of September 23,2011 Failure to conduct heariugs/permit testimony

The Protracted hearing on September 23,2011 was ordered on July 18, 2011

“A Protracted Hearing on Plaintiffs counter Petition for Sanctions filed July 14, 2011 is scheduled for Fnday September 23, 2011 fi-om 10 30 a: in until noon”

1.5 Hours were scheduled for the hearing.

NOW READ HOW THOSE 1.5 Hours get loaded up to the point where issues could not possibly be addressed. The judge had no intention of HEARING anything. The plan was to ignore and terrorize… All filings by defendant were necessary. Unfortunately, they were ALL ignored by the judge who demonstrated her fraud, corruption, conspiracy to deny justice and complete denial of civil, human and property rights. Judge Carolyn Carluccio decided to push her victim to suicide. And I wouldn’t oblige. This INFURIATED her… and her stupidity and malice was documented, on the record and completely out of control.

The docket shows that there was no Certificate of Service for the Plaintiff Counter Petition for Sanctions filed 7/14/2011


On July 21, 2011 Defendant filed
PETITION REQUESTING AN IMMEDIATE STAY/RESCHEDULING REGARDING TUE ORDER OF JULY 18, 2011 AS THE INCOMPLETE WRITTEN ORDER PLACES THE DEFENDANT IN JEOPARDY

The Court had issued a verbal order into the record.
The transcript would not be available for weeks.
The Defendant believed be would be subjected to arrest for following the verbal order as the available printed documents indicated he must vacate the property.

Police were called when Defendant was photographing the Plaintiff’s dissipation of assets August 2011 and September 2011. Just photographing my possessions being thrown away resulted in police being called. I was not on the property. I remained across the street, so police coulsd not say I had not vacated the property and arrest me.

On August 17, 2011, the Short List was scheduled for September 20, 2011


On August 15, 2011 Defendant filed (concurrent with the filing of a NOTICE OF APPEAL)
Petition to Proceed In Forma Pauperis
On August 15, 2011, Defendant filed an Appeal of the Defective Order of May 9, 2011 (Divorce Decree & Equitable Distribution)


On August 19, 2011 Defendant filed
Petition Requesting the Scheduling of Outstanding Petitions

This Petition recapped the number of petitions which remained unheard by the Court

Since the August 12, 2010 discovery of a Secret Ex Parte, Undocketed and Undistributed Order issued by Judge Rhonda Daniele, Petitions submitted by the Defendant were no longer heard.


On August 30, 2011 Defendant filed
Petition Requesting Distribution/Docketing of Ex Parte Court Order
While seeking Police intervention of the Plaintiffs dissipation of Assets (which was denied), Defendant learned that Montgomery Township Police were requested by the Montgomery County Deputies to assist in ensuring that the Defendant had vacated the Property on June 9,2011

Montgomery County Sheriff Eileen Behr has CONFIRMED her deputies being dispatched to the house, BUT she has neglected to provide any information as to WHY, or at who’s request they were dispatched. Sheriff Behr was surprised during our face to face conversation when the system also had no explanation for the deputies being dispatched. Though I had set her expectations when she asked for the information to be printed and delivered to her.

Petition for the Recusal of Judge Carolyn Carluccio


On September 6, 2011, on the faxed Request of the Plaintiff, Judge Carluccio IMMEDIATELY continued the hearing scheduled for September 20, 2011 to September 23, 2011 to accommodate the Plaintiff’s inability to appear.
– On August 17,2011 The DEFENDANT PETIflON REQUESTING AN IMMEDIATE STAY had been seheduled for September 20, 2011
– Closing Date for the house had been set on JuIy 24, 2011 and signed/accepted by Plaintiff on July 27, 2011
– The Closing date was scheduled for September 20, 2011
– Plaintiff intentionally prevented the Defendant from knowing the closing date A violation of Power of Attomey Law
– Real Rstate Agent, Chris Grucella had dehberately and intentionally prevented the Defendant from knowing the closing date
– Keller Wilhiams Real Estate has deliberately and intentionally prevented the Defendant from knowing the closing date
– Their conspiracy to commit the fraudulent sale of the home is undeniable
– It is not unreasonable to suggest that Plaintiff had rnformed Angst & Angst of her reason for being “unable to attend” on September 20,2011
– Angst & Angst were deliberately and intentionally creating an appearance of unpropnety for Judge Carluccio
– Judge Carluccio did endorse and encourage the an appearance of impropriety by her immediate response to the faxed continuance request without any opportunity for the Defendant to object

On September 23, 2011, whzle reviewing the above information, when the appearance of impropriety became undeniable and clearly evident, Judge Carluccio interrupted the Defendant’s review of information LOUDLY denying any wrongdoingprior before the accusation had even been suggested let alone defiantly made.

Judge Carolyn Carluccio accused the Defendant of requiring 7 deputies around him because of him being intimidating. She neglected to mention her false report to the deputies office in May. The defendant quite clearly told her that HE was NOT intimidating, however, the truth and the law were very intimidating and as the law and the truth were clearly against her, she likely found that very intimidating.

As part of her continuance Order, the following petitions were additionally scheduled for September 23,2011. NO ADDITIONAL TIME WAS ALLOCATED.

not properly served,
and withdrawn on September 28,2011 at 4:59 PM
SUPERCEDED ALL other petitions and prevented any testimony or presentation of evidence on the other petitions scheduled to be heard.

THEY ILLEGALLY SOLD MY HOME, THREW OUT ALL OF MY POSSESSIONS, CONSPIRED WITH THE JUDGE, AND REVEALED IT ALL IN COURT WHILE I WAS SURROUNDED BY 7 DEPUTIES THEY WANTED AN ANGRY REACTION WHERE THEY COULD JAIL ME.

Judge Carluccio wanted to beat me up, in public, on the record, in front of a packed courtroom. To bully a Defendant who had been robbed of everything except his integrity and his dignity.

Judge Carluccio wanted my suicide. I did not oblige. She was going to make me pay for forcing her to cover her fraud and corruption.

BUT THERE WAS MORE… Valerie Angst proceeded to blackmail the judge into giving her an additional $11,000.
– when showing the judge the invoices for attorney fees.
– A COPY TO REVIEW WAS DENIED THE DEFENDANT.
– A COPY OF THE DOCUMENT WAS DENIED TO THE DEFENDANT.
– The Ex Parte Document exchanged between Valerie Angst & Judge Carolyn Carluccio was not provided to the defendant BECAUSE IT LISTED OUT THE EX PARTE MEETINGS AND CALLS WHICH SET THE STAGE FOR THE KANGAROO PROCEEDING.
– They were granted $14,000 where they had requested $3,000.

Remember, the matter was under Appeal. The Judge had acknowledged that on the record.

Remember, the lawyers REPEATEDLY FAILED to follow due process which prevents the judge from having jurisdiction. This was deliberate and intentional and designed to manipulate the judges. The tactic succeeded on ALL but one judge. He saw through it, REACTED APPROPRIATELY, AND THEN NEVER HELD THE HEARING, AND WAS REASSIGNED MYSTERIOUSLY AND INEXPLICABLY 6 MONTHS LATER. That was Judge Haaz – formerly of the Supreme Court of PA Disciplinary Organization.

YET, the judges have continued to retaliate against the Defendant, ME, for surviving their 8 years of terror. Attempting to protect the integrity of a judiciary which lacked integrity. And Boldly, Deliberately and Proudly demonstrated their lack of integrity because the next judge would cover for their failures and sacrifice his own integrity at that time. It’s a slippery slope. Ask the 18 judges on the Montgomery County Bench. All but 2 lacked integrity. Judge Haaz as mentioned above, and Judge Dickman who passed away in 2007 – thought the notes on her orders seemed to indicate she knew the types of malicious and vexacious and destructive lawyers involved. Valerie Angst and Robert Angst.

Judge Carolyn Carluccio and the 17 prior judges in this mattrer had been manipulated into fraud, abuse, conspiracy and corruption by Angst & Angst. Lawyers who would throw them under the bus at the first opportunity. Each time they pointed out the judge’s crimes. the judge recused or ordered against the Defendant.

No Judge has held the Plaintiff accountable for failing to follow EVERY Court Order. They had leverage. AND THEY WERE NOT AFRAID TO USE IT.

Judge Garret Page issued an enforcement order for payment of over $300,000 to a Defendant who had been unemployed since 2007 and left homeless by a void order while failing to address the lack of jurisdiction of the void order based on a void based on a void defective order.

On Appeal, Judge Page initially ignored the Petition to Proceed In Forma Pauperis. After an entire day of judges refusing to hearing the IFP, Judge Page granted the petition. Judge Page then requested a concise statement of issued being raised on appeal. Upon being provided with that listing, Judge Page (without jurisdiction) revoked the IFP. There was no hearing. There was no explanation.

When asked for a hearing / explanation. Judge Page denied petitions for the same.

Unable to appeal a denial of an IFP because the Prothonotary would not accept an Appeal without an IFP. Judge Page intentionally issued orders without jurisdiction knowing there would be no way around his actions.

Judge Page, with full knowledge of what was being challenged in the Appeal, then contacted the court reporters and instructed them to NOT provide the transcripts for the hearings required for the Appeal to proceed. Judge Page was intimidating at least one of the court reporters who regularly worked with him. THAT reporter also neglected to submit exhibits along with previously transcribed transcripts.

Judge Page is acting to prevent the Appeal of his order, because it exposes the denial of access to the courts and the denial of an Appeal filed on August 15, 2011. That Appeal was blocked by Judge Carolyn Carluccio. Who refused to hear the IFP at that time, while acknoweledging the appeal and preventing transcripts from being produced at that time. At the time Defendant was appealing a defective divorce decree which left Defendant homeless and disposed of ALL of his property while conspiring with the Plaintiff and her attorneys to deny and delay hearings.

This all occurs after 8 years of divorce litigation where the Defendant has been denied prompt custody hearings, and denied any enforcement actions against the Plaintiff. Causing the Defendant to be in tremendous debt, and not being permitted to see his children for years.

Prior Complaints to the JCB have been ignored, not investigated and summarily dismissed while the judiciary continues to terrorize the Defendant. All actions designed to conceal the initial malicious order, kept secret for 3 years, issued by Judge Rhonda Daniele without hearing, without being distributed to the Defendant, and without ever meeting with the Defendant. That SECRET Order was used to leverage the judges to misdeed, which once discovered and documented resulted in their prompt recusal and the injustice being moved to the next judge’s courtroom.

6d20d857635bced3009af54adfc1d87f_1024
8 Years.

18 Judges.

ONE TERRORISTIC DIVORCE.

The inescapable injustice is documented.

Oh, President Carter you have no idea of the damage they have done. Not just in the surveillance, but in the efforts to prevent their unconstitutional and unconscionable actions from being exposed.

I’ve had a few chances to speak with Former President Carter in the past. He was always a friendly and sincere man. No matter where the encounter took place Jimmy Carter was personal and genuine. Whether at Independence Hall in Philadelphia or an early morning in Chicago’s O’Hare Airport, he was just himself.
Former U.S. President and Nobel Laureate Jimmy Carter gestures at the 21st Hay Festival
A truly respectable quality. A truly respectable leader.

And in an age of political slander and dirty tricks, I am reminded of what was done to President Carter on his last day in office. They negotiated with terrorists in an attempt to humiliate the man. They failed.

You can never take away the quality of character demonstrated by President Carter. They only demonstrated how low they would venture using innocent people as political tools.

NSA affair: Ex-President Carter Condemns U.S. Snooping
By Gregor Peter Schmitz, from Atlanta

Ex-President Carter: “The invasion of privacy has gone too far”

The Obama administration has tried to placate Europe’s anger over their spying programs. Not so ex-President Jimmy Carter: The Democrat Carter sharply criticized U.S. intelligence policy. The disclosure by the whistleblower Snowden was “useful.”

Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter was in the wake of the NSA spying scandal criticized the American political system. “America has no functioning democracy,” Carter said Tuesday at a meeting of the “Atlantic Bridge” in Atlanta.

Previously, the Democrat had been very critical of the practices of U.S. intelligence. “I think the invasion of privacy has gone too far,” Carter told CNN. “And I think that is why the secrecy was excessive.”

With regard to the NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, Carter said his revelations were “likely to be useful because they have informed the public.”

Carter has repeatedly warned that the moral authority of the United States has declined sharply due to excessive curtailment of civil rights. Last year he wrote in an article in the “New York Times” that new U.S. laws have allowed “never before seen breaches of our privacy by the government.”

Woke up thinking of my ‘Great Aunt’ Suzie. To her my name was one syllable… ‘Ternz’. We always had good laughs together.

She passed a few years ago.

She was one of the very few that kept in touch with me. Even though she was in Belfast and was thousands of miles away, she never let me feel isolated.

I miss her laugh.

Spent the day at Superior Court making copies of the files which were transmitted from the Norristown Prothonotary.

Always a game, or tactic, or demonstration of the inability for anyone in Norristown for follow rules, procedure and law. The files were to have been delivered to the Superior Court by June 28, 2013.

They were received on July 8, 2013 at Superior Court. The swagger of the Montgomery County Courthouse demonstrates the tremendous arrogance to believe that the rules do not apply to them.

There are also several missing items, exhibits, transcripts, etc… Of course they would not send everything. The Rules of Appellate Procedure don’t apply to Montgomery County. Oy!

It is a simple concept. How difficult could it be to get an error corrected? I’ve been trying to be heard since May 2011. BUT, I had to wait for a petition that I could respond to.

The tricky part is getting in front of a judge. The phrase “provided the party is properly before the court”. is an important one.

When Judge Carluccio was notified in writing in a petition AND an emergency petition, … I wasn’t able to get ‘properly before the court.’

When Judge Carluccio refused to hold a hearing on her void order… I wasn’t able to get ‘properly before the court.’

When Judge Carluccio held a short list conference where she ridiculously listened to the title of the piece of paper and completely ignored the content of the document, … I wasn’t able to get ‘properly before the court.’

When Judge Carluccio held the bully session on September 23, 2011, … I wasn’t permitted to testify or present any information about the void order… while Judge Carluccio issued a third void order. I wasn’t able to get properly before the court.

Properly before the court in July 2012, Judge Haaz addressed the deliberate actions of Angst & Angst which would cause a lapse in jurisdiction. Judge Haaz recognized that the issues would not be resolved in a short list conference. He ordered a hearing which was never scheduled.

However, when Judge Page conducted the hearings in February 2013, I was FINALLY properly before the court and the issue of the void order was very relevant to the petitions being discussed. Judge Page IGNORED the challenge to jurisdiction and ordered an absurd enforcement of a void order based on a void order, based on a void order, based on a defective divorce decree.

The issue is that while they deny me access to the courts, there is no way to retroactively provide jurisdiction to the defective divorce decree. So the delays only serve to harass, intimidate and threaten while my life passes by waiting for justice. I persevere.

A void judgment which includes judgment entered by a court which lacks jurisdiction over the parties or the subject matter, or lacks inherent power to enter the particular judgment, or an order procured by fraud, can be attacked at any time, in any court, either directly or collaterally, provided that the party is properly before the court.

Agency best kept secret in law enforcement
Shrouded in anonymity, a crime-fighting government agency has had its headquarters in Newtown Township for nearly 20 years.
By LAURIE MASON

Prosecutors in Michigan and Kentucky know about it. So do police officers from Canada, New York and Ohio.

Detectives from more than 700 law enforcement agencies from all over the Northeastern United States journey to Newtown Township to use it every day. Its employees have helped solve some of the highest profile crimes of the past two decades.

Yet MAGLOCLEN gets none of the credit.

figure5_1And that’s just the way the agency, located in a nondescript brown building in the far, far back corner of an industrial park off Newtown-Yardley Road, likes it.

MAGLOCLEN stands for Mid Atlantic-Great Lakes Organized Crime Law Enforcement Network, a little-known arm of the federal government. It has quietly played a part in some of the most infamous crime investigations in recent memory.

The agency’s walls are lined with photos, charts and graphs used at the trials of convicted killers. They include millionaire eccentric John DuPont, who murdered Olympic wrestler Dave Shultz on his estate in Delaware County, and Arthur Bomar, who raped and murdered co-ed Amy Willard during a carjacking on the Blue Route in 1997.
Reports detailing the inner workings of Jamaican and Russian organized crime sects, as well as the latest statistics on prison gangs and satanic cults, lay in neat piles on countertops.

In super cool, air-conditioned laboratories, 6-foot tall computers – including a database stuffed with the names of the most-wanted criminals in the United Sates and beyond – beep and whir behind locked glass doors. In every office, tall dividers block desks from view as hushed voices discuss unsolved crimes.

A massive conference room can be glimpsed from the hallway. It contains hundreds of chairs ready for one of the 60 training sessions that MAGLOCLEN hosts for police officers each year. Topics covered at these member-only conferences include computer forensics, money laundering, and the proper use of surveillance devices.

Visitors from the media are rare – and most rooms are off-limits. The agency’s written reports, with tantalizing titles such as “Domestic Threat Groups” and “Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs” are not public record and therefore not furnished to reporters.

MAGLOCLEN’s secrets are shared only with law enforcement officers from the agency’s list of members, which include the Bucks County District Attorney’s Office and most local police departments.

MAGLOCLEN holds no press conferences and will not answer questions from the general public. It is there solely to serve its members, says spokesman James Gallagher, the agency’s first deputy executive director.

“We like to keep a low profile. It’s our member agencies who do all the work, so they deserve all the credit when a crime is solved. We’re just a service agency,” he said.

One of six in nation

Founded in 1981, MAGLOCLEN is one of six government-funded Regional Information Sharing System agencies that share a $20 million annual budget. Eight states – Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Ohio, Maryland, Michigan and Indiana – as well as the District of Columbia and two Canadian provinces, are served by MAGLOCLEN.

There are five other regional RISS offices throughout the nation.

RISS began in 1974, following a crime wave by a group called the Dixie Mafia, Gallagher explained. The gang, a band of Southern-bred armed robbers, was terrorizing victims in several states. Unable to catch the robbers on their own, a group of law enforcement officers from different agencies took the unprecedented step of sitting down together to share clues.

“That wasn’t really done back then, and to some extent is not done today. It was and still is a very parochial business.” Gallagher said.

But the Southern cops’ efforts paid off, and the Dixie Mafia was shut down. Soon after, Congress mandated that an information-sharing network be created and RISS was born.

Newtown Township was chosen as the MAGLOCLEN site because of its close proximity to I-95 and the Pennsylvania Turnpike, as well as its centralized location between New York City and Washington, D.C.

The agency’s executives are former law enforcement officers, and the FBI and the U.S. military trains much of the staff. Security is nearly as tight as the Pentagon, and staff applicants must pass a battery of background checks.

“It’s quite extensive,” Gallagher said of the checks. “We go way back into their lives.”

HELPING LOCAL POLICE

MAGLOCLEN employees assist law enforcement agencies nationwide.

Much of MAGLOCLEN’s services are handled by phone and computer. Members from all over the nation call the office daily seeking information on suspects and crime trends. Information and updates also are sent out over an Intranet, a secure e-mail system shared exclusively by member government agencies.

MAGLOCLEN agents also hit the road each week, assisting at crime scenes or gathering information to share with members.

The agency’s work can be seen every day in Bucks County courtrooms. Aerial shots of crime scenes and accident reconstruction sketches are refined and drawn to scale at MAGLOCLEN, then made into huge posters. The posters, photo montages of suspects and hierarchical charts that organize drug gangs from the kingpin on down, are designed to make evidence more easily digestible to jurors.

“You can have a wealth of evidence, but it’s of no use if the jury doesn’t understand it. That’s where photos and charts come in handy,” said Steve Tori, MAGLOCLEN’s analytical staff supervisor.

But by far the most requested service of MAGLOCLEN staff is help with computer crimes, Gallagher said.

“There’s been a great surge in these crimes over the last decade,” said Gallagher, “but our staff has been able to keep up. It’s a very technical and legally complicated issue.”

So complicated that the slightest mistake can ruin a case.

In a child pornography investigation, for example, police must be careful to make a mirror image of the computer hard drive and not touch the actual information because it is evidence.

Since a computer can’t be cross-examined, prosecutors come to MAGLOCLEN to learn the legally correct way to glean information from the machines. One wrong move, Gallagher explained, and a computer case could be thrown out of court.

MAGLOCLEN staffers also teach technical nuances, like the proper way to seize a suspect’s computer.

“We once had a case where the officers picked up the machine and carried it out the door, not knowing that there were magnets lining the doorway. All the information was erased,” Gallagher said.

MAGLOCLEN employees won’t discuss specifics of local cases they’ve helped solve, but Gallagher said the agency has been involved in many high-profile Bucks County cases. Staying out of the limelight helps its staff do the job better, he explained.

“We don’t want the headlines. In fact, we try to stay out of them,” Gallagher said. “We do our best work behind the scenes.”
