I got an email today for “the courts” showing information on filing a complaint against a Federal Judge. The manifest injustice is, as anyone who has ever filed a complaint against a federal court judge knows, that the complaint will go to “the chief judge of the court in which your complaint is filed”
In other words, if you file a complaint, let’s say against Judge William S Duffey, Jr who is at the US District Court for the Northern District of Georgia, Atlanta Division, the Chief Judge from either there, or the 11th Cir. Court of Appeals, which is right around the corner, gets the complaint.
Now, who in their right mind, thinks this a fair way to handle a complaint about a Judge? Be real!
So this article comes in as Manifest Injustice of the WeeK!
Filing a Complaint Against a Federal Judge
July 08, 2010
A new document on uscourts.gov explains the process for complaining that a federal judge has committed misconduct or has become disabled.
The document, which can be found here (pdf), also discusses what you should include in a complaint, and explains what happens after a complaint is considered.
In most instances, the judge who considers your complaint will be the chief judge of the court in which your complaint is filed. That judge may conduct a limited inquiry, interviewing witnesses and examining other available information. You may or may not be contacted during this process.
If the chief judge orders that your complaint be dismissed or otherwise concluded, you may petition for review of that order. Most often, your petition will be heard by the judicial council of the federal appeals court in which the complaint is pending.
The response that everyone gets, after filing a complaint is that the complaint goes to the merits of the case. What a crock!
Washington, D.C.-based Fannie Mae’s (NYSE: FNM) stock was down 45 percent Wednesday morning to 51 cents and McLean, Va.-based Freddie Mac’s (NYSE: FRE) stock was down 47 percent to 65 cents. Both continued to fall.
Both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have offices in metro Atlanta.
The companies’ regulator and conservator, the Federal Finance Housing Authority, ordered the companies to delist Wednesday morning after Fannie Mae fell below the NYSE’s $1 trading requirement for more than 30 days and received a delisting notice from the exchange. The agency also ordered Freddie Mac to delist, as its price was trading near the $1 mark.
The delistings will be effective around July 8, 10 days after the companies file a notice of delisting with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
The companies will still post filings with the SEC and investors will still be able to buy and trade the stock on the Over-the-Counter Bulletin Board.
By trading Over the Counter, the stocks will lose a lot of liquidity they enjoyed under the NYSE, which has a specialist assigned to each stock on the exchange, explained Bert Ely, a monetary policy consultant with Alexandria-based Ely & Co. The specialist maintains an inventory of stock that they buy or sell to help fill orders, which helps reduce the bid-ask spread and allow for large trades.
After switching to Over-the-Counter, the trading volume will likely drop, prices will deteriorate further, price volatility will increase and it will become more difficult to trade a large number of stocks, he said.
Does the delisting make it less likely that Fannie and Freddie will ever emerge from conservatorship as private companies?
“It probably reduces the odds from one-in-10 million to one-in-11 million,” Ely said. “There’s no way they can earn their way back to health and return to the government the huge investment it has made in them. There’s no future for these companies as private enterprises.”
So far, Fannie and Freddie have gotten some $127 billion from the Treasury Department.
Freddie Mac spokesman Douglas Duvall declined to comment on what impact the delisting would have on the company.
In a securities filing, Fannie Mae said it does not expect the delisting “will affect, in any way, Fannie Mae’s ability to fulfill its mission to provide liquidity and stability to the mortgage market.”
The above link will take you to where the article that states: “Not just above the law, this administration seems to be saying that it IS the law.”
Damn, it’s about time someone, other than most of America, finally realizes it!
Pro Se litigants are among the most discriminated people within the Court system. The only people that I have seen more discriminated against, are disabled pro se litigants.
Feel free to add your thoughts and input!
As a Pro Se litigant, it is often difficult to know or understand what a Motion, Objection, etc. is supposed to look like. So, what I have done is uploaded to two different websites some of the legal filings we have filed in Probate, State, Superior, District, Court of Appeals of GA, US Court of Appeals and the US Supreme Courts.
Feel free to check out the filings, they are very useful and informative. Feel free to use the case law, it has all been checked and is what it says. Feel free to contact us should you have any questions.
PLEASE KEEP IN MIND… WE ARE NOT ATTORNEYS, WE DO NOT GIVE LEGAL ADIVCE!
We supply this information only as information in hopes of a better United States and in hopes of combatting the corruption within the legal system and courts!
It never ceases to amaze me the amount of corruption at Superior Court Stone Mountain Judicial Circuit.
Now Judge Becker, the same Judge that we have a case against in Federal Court, and who refuses to recuse from the Superior Court case, has set a Summary Judgment hearing for GA Power.
Because she is defendant in a case in federal court along with GA Power and two of the attorneys representing them in the Superior Court case, she cannot legally preside over the Superior Court case. She refuses to recuse.
How in the hell is anyone to have a fair and impartial tribunal in that Court system? The day after she was properly served with Summons and Complaint, she dismissed with prejudice our case against GA Power leaving only their counterclaim.
This is truly a sign of the done deal syndrome!
Keep in mind, Judge Scott has had an Appeal and Void Judgment in front of him for over three years. He set it for Jury Trial that was to begin January 26, 2009. He failed to send Notice of trial to any of the parties.
Monday, January 26, 2009 in a wheelchair, I attended a “Jury Trial” calendar call in Superior Court before Judge Mark Anthony Scott for an Appeal from Probate Court, which was filed three years ago. When my name was called I responded; Judge asked if I was ready for trial, I responded that I was. Judge asked if I was proceeding Pro Se, I responded that I was. Judge asked if I was represented by counsel, I responded that No, I am proceeding Pro Se. The Judge asked me two more times if I was represented, and/or if I was proceeding Pro Se, I responded that I am proceeding Pro Se both times.
The clerk, very quietly spoke to the Judge. The Judge stated that there are “technical difficulties” in the file. I asked what the technical difficulties are. The Judge, very irritated stated to the Bailiff “take him out back!” I stated to the Judge: “All I did was ask what the difficulties are”; Judge responded: “I didn’t like your tone of voice!”; I responded: “I am in constant pain, I wasn’t rude”; Judge said: “Why didn’t you tell me that to begin with, I was having you arrested for contempt!”; I said nothing. The Judge then said: “Bailiffs take him out of my Courtroom!”
At that point the Bailiffs, one grabbing the handles of my wheelchair physically removed me from the courtroom. I waited outside approximately 30 minutes, decided I should go in case this Judge decided to have me arrested for contempt. I have heard nothing sense.
I don’t know about the rest of yall, but I have had about enough of the corruption within the Judicial System. I see that it’s not just in Georgia, but all over the whole country.
It’s just a damn shame that the greatest country in the world is riddled with such corruption and apparently everyone knows it and nothing is done about it.
I guess this is one way to fight back. There still has to be more.
If anyone else (I’m not speaking of attorneys, or law students, I am speaking of those of us forced to fight for our Rights in the Courts as Pro Se litigants) if anyone else has ever sat back and read case after case after case for caselaw, it is obvious that what is going on goes against everything our country was created for. The Supreme Court in many cases goes through and analyzes what it was that the “framers intended” when they made laws.
I can tell you…. the framers did not intend justice to be only for the rich, only for those who can afford attorneys, only for friends and family of Judges. They never intended the Judges to be bias/prejudice and treat litigants without dignity, to treat them as idiots, to humiliate them.
We have studied the law diligently for four years now. No, not at college, but studied in the same way one would study in college. We are not idiots, and we will not quit, we will not go away!
