Have You Ever Wondered?

Have You Ever Wondered Why a Judge Rules The Way He Does? 

Have you ever, whether proceeding in Propria Persona, or represented by an attorney, why the Judge ruled the way he did.  Many times, the ruling will be so obviously against what the law states, but the Judge ruled that way anyway? 

Well, if you are in Georgia, and in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia, you certainly have had bad rulings.  Especially, if you were Propria Persona, or going against a bank.  If you were both, forget it. 

Now, I am not saying don’t file the suit.  You must, you will not be able to live with yourself if you don’t.  But once the judge is appointed to you, do a search on that judge.  Find out all you can.  If it is available, find the financial disclosures.  Check over the investments really good. 

For instance, let’s look at N. D. Ga. Judge Julie E. Carnes for the year 2009 Financial Disclosure Report, filed May 2010.  It is a matter of public record.  I got it from:  http://www.judicialwatch.org/judge/  

On page 4 of 11, it reads like the investment page we would all love to have (NOTE:  I am only showing the Banking and/or Mortgage investments, there are many more that are not banking/mortgage related:

 Those are lines 1-56; then there is what she purchased, most within the parameters of this one beginning on lines 57 – 96 (only 1 Inv per line): 

Ga B&T:  Int rcvd:  $5000-$15,000; Amt Inv:  $50,000-$100,000; Cash

 Int rcvd =  Interest received; 

Amt Inv = Amount of Investment at the time of filing; 

Cash = they type of investment

 The following, I did not take the time to break down, but I think I got my point across.  Do you think this judge should ever sit on a case with any of the entities named?  Be sure to do a thorough search on the judge you get.  Most of them have this many investments.  Does your judge have a stake in the entity that you are suing?

 Sterling Savings Bank

HomeStreet Bank

FNB of the South

Huntignton

Capmark Bank

Sallie Mae Bank

Discover Bank

United Commerce Bank

Discover Bank

CitiBank

US Treasury Note

US Trsy Inflation Note

Remember, I did not list all of them, she has investments in hospitals, healthcare, schools, utilities.  You name it, and the judge you get may end up having an investment in that entity.
