    Here is a copy of this person's 2009 complaint downloaded from Pacer. You be the judge.


    Read it..

    The court won`t waste it`s time with something like that..

    I skimmed through the 2009 document. It was painful to read. Obviously the man is hurting. I wish he wasn't representing himself, because it appears he is doing himself a disservice. It appears information is mentioned as evidence that is not really pertinent to the issue at hand.

    Interesting that it's a civil case for violation of civil rights, not a criminal one.

    So would the burden of proof be less? Would the plaintiff have to prove a violation of RICO occurred (which requires proving criminal intent)?

    Why is RICO being brought up, if it's a civil case? I have so many questions.

    Does anyone know if the status listed ("pending") means the court is proceeding with the case, or does that mean the decision hasn't been made yet?

    You might all be surprised what you can learn in 6 years as far as litigation and self representation. We will have to find out how our Protagonist fares.

    Oh dear. Sounds like the person could use an advocate, social worker, or case manager....and an attorney.

    Apparently not. I have won every single court case I have ever found myself in. I represented myself every time. So I guess the piece of wisdom you quoted was made by a lawyer looking for another paycheck, someone like Dr. Monica Applewhite no doubt..
