CHIEF JUDGE SMITH TO RULE ON RECUSAL OF COLOMBO IN FLUKER CASE; MERS FORECLOSURES DECLARED ILLEGAL | VOICE OF DETROIT: The city’s independent newspaper, unbossed and unbought
“Judge Colombo renegotiated his own home mortgage with RBS in very favorable terms while presiding over this case,” Fluker’s attorney Jerome Goldberg argued May 13. “He negotiated a $65,000 reduction in the principal from $200,000 to $135,000 in 2009. That is the the issue. We discovered this fact on March 1, 2011. Judge Colombo’s extreme actions against my client triggered our investigation.”
Unless I’m remembering his first name wrong, this is the judge who knew nothing about corporate statutes when the corporation I owned majority stock in was sued by a minority shareholder.
The minority shareholder was the former majority shareholder, who had made payable-on-demand loans to the corporation without their being any liquid assets to satisfy those loans.
Colombo took parties – separately – into chambers. He wouldn’t let me show him the statutes that made those loans lawless. The book of Michigan corporate statutes was within his arm’s reach.
Had Colombo let me show him the statutes, he would have had to dismiss the suit. But he’d already made up his mind. He wouldn’t even listen to an alternate and equally valid argument for estoppel – regular $2K repayments of the loans indicated the plaintiff’s acceptance of installments.
The frivolous fray went on for years, killed the company and deprived me a way to support my daughter, and damn near killed me with a seizure – during proceedings – that damaged my memory exponentially longer than any other seizure before it.
When I was trying to look up the now nearly 27-year-old case online for a quick document to provide for a physician who believes I imagined this fray (as well as its predecessor and its successor), I found January 2014 activity on the case.
The company’s name and assets were purchased out of bankruptcy by an amicable competitor. I can’t imagine Doug having any reason to initiate any action, and action by any other party would be as frivolous and lawless as the initial suit against the company.
That, in a nutshell, is public misconduct fray #2.
Fray #1 was initiated by a lawless probate judge Kenneth Mackness, who awarded custody of children taken away from their parents to the Michigan Department of Social Services only until Michigan taxpayers footed the bill for rights termination, foster care, medical care, etc., at which point Mackness would rescind custody from the DSS and award custody of children to a private adoption agency, which promptly profited from placement. The DSS had its own adoption agency, and I adopted my then-three-year-old daughter through it, incurring the retroactive wrath of Mackness, resulting in a fray that lasted years and cost taxpayers a fortune in battling for all sides – with the involvement of the Michigan Attorney General on our behalf, going all the way to the state supreme court. The fray cost us the very roof over our heads … the only way we could pay the attorney was to hand over the keys to our lakefront home.
Fray #3 was initiated in Florida by lawless Melbourne Police Department officers and detectives as well as lawless Palm Bay Police Department officers who decided this law-abiding citizen had fewer rights than a law-breaking citizen. The fray escalated to include the notoriously corrupt 18th Judicial Circuit State Attorneys Office and its most notoriously corrupt former prosecutor, Judge John Dean Moxley. It’s now in its 13th year. This, too, cost me a waterfront home, and damn near killed me.
I have a vivid imagination, an imagination that had one colleague comment that I think so far outside of the box that I don’t even know where the box is.
But that imagination designs interiors and exteriors. Not conspiracies.
