The Register presents:
Selected docket items in the "Foreclosure / Mortgage Fraud" case from The Register's archives: an unofficial (but hopefully accurate) docket:
NOTE: This case relates the court action involving an elderly man who became homeless and had his life placed in peril due to mortgage fraud, in response to his responding to some lawyers who claimed to be willing to help him refinance his property & seek investors to save it from foreclosure. For those who remember, this is almost exactly like the 2009 'Mortgage Rescue' Scam case in which Lessie Towns became temporarily famous, and had a personal visit from former Gov. Pat Quinn (D-Ill.) to address her problem. (Google 'Paul Shelton' (who lost his license over this) and/or 'Lessie Towns' and/or 'Pat Quinn' and/or 'Mortgage Rescue Scam' to verify/clarify.) However, unlike Ms. Towns, Mr. Daniggelis did not actually sign away his house and was even more of an innocent victim (albeit with much less news coverage). For those of you unfamiliar with Mr. Daniggelis' case, you need only look at the initial filings by Gordon Watts in the LAW Division case below - denoted by Blinking DotthisBlinking Dot blinking dot; they are the most updated 'primary' filings. The 11/30/2015 Motion for Rehearing in CHANCERY, below, is also a very good read - and quite funny in parts!

Chancery Case: 2007-CH-29738, CHANCERY DIVISION, GMAC v. Daniggelis
10/17/2007 Complaint to Foreclose Mortgage
2007-CH-29738
CHANCERY DIVISION
GMAC v. Daniggelis
GMAC MORTGAGE LLC, Plaintiff, filed by Pierce & Associates
See pp. 1-4 of this 96-page PDF Public Records request. This filing is called the "NON OWNER OCCUPIED SINGLE FAMILY HOME OR CONDOMINIUM - FILED" on the Court's Chancery docket, but a document, titled "CONTRACT COMPLAINT FILED" was filed on the same date in the Law Division (same case number). This appears to be the self-same document. NOTE: GMAC v. Daniggelis, 2007-CH-29738, is currently in both the Chancery Division (which was appealed to the First Appellate Court) and in the Law Division. That this same case number is in 2 divisions is a constant source of confusion to the clerks in both divisions, as I personally recall, based on numerous phone conversations with many clerks, who often reply along the line of: "No, that is a Chancery case, since it has 'CH' in its title." -- Me: "Yes, it is a Law Division case; it's in both divisions: look at the dockets, if you don't believe me" ~Editor, Gordon W.

RICHARD DANIGGELIS, Defendant, filed by ANDJELKO GALIC, Esq.
Image not available here; see official court for this: This is just a 'Trial by Jury' demand, showing that Atty. Galic is asking for a trial by jury - something which might actually get justice for Mr. Daniggelis, whose house was stolen from him via forgery fraud - a key "landmark" on the timeline of the docket. This item, like those above, was also filed on the same date in the Law Division (same case number).

“In the exercise of this Court's supervisory authority, the Appellate Court, First District, is directed to vacate its order in GMAC Mortgage, LLC v. Daniggelis, case No. 1-14-2751 (09/24/14), denying Richard Daniggelis leave to file a late notice of appeal.

5/29/2015 REVIEWING COURT ORDER RECEIVED, Court Room: 2403
2007-CH-29738
CHANCERY DIVISION
GMAC v. Daniggelis
Judge: APPELLATE COURT
Appeals court denies bond, since no stay was entered, but (and this is very scary!) appellee (e.g., plaintiff, GMAC, the bank) is free to pursue removal of elderly victim of mortgage fraud. Why is this scary? Well: The plaintiff, GMAC, is excused (see point #3 of this order finding there are no pending claims against GMAC, which - of course - would be impossible had they kicked Daniggelis out of his home). Even more frightening: The trial court apparently used this order as an excuse to simply steal Daniggelis' house and give it to Atty. Younes, even tho no one in their right mind would accept their implied claim that Daniggelis just "gave it away" for free - and lost several hundred thousands of dollars of equity. Worse yet: My pleadings showed the court duplicate signatures --something that both of Daniggelis' attorneys overlooked -- which, of course, can only happen via photocopy (you CAN NOT sign your name exactly the same twice in a row), translation: Photocopy, thus felony forgery fraud. ~~Editor

Judge: APPELLATE COURT
Motions for waiver of court fees; leave for Amicus; and Motion to Supplement Record Instanter ~~ Supporting Record ~~ Proposed Orders. Note: filed on 8/16, but docketed on 8/17. The court entered this ruling on Sept. 11, 2015.
8/21/2015 NOTICE OF MOTION FILED
2007-CH-29738
CHANCERY DIVISION
GMAC v. Daniggelis
Court docket reflects: "Attorney: GALIC ANDJELKO," even tho this was filed by Mr. Watts.
The court's date (8/21) is slightly later than the actual filing (8/16), as with other filings. The court did not follow the rules and allow Mr. Watts to appear telephonically (as the rules of the IL Supreme court allow) either this time or any other time: See Art. II, Rule 185 (Telephone Conferences), R.Civ. Proceedings in the Trial Court, Rule 206(h)(Remote Electronic Means Depositions), etc. ~ Moreover, the online docket, for reasons unknown to myself, do not reflect the “Motion for leave to file Supplemental Record,” or the proposed order, just the Notice of Motion.

However, since I did not know if my items were received or not (due to the docketing error, listing Atty. Galic as the filer), I refiled on 9/10/2015: see below. ~Editor, Gordon W. Watts

I re-sent copies of the "8/21/2016" filings above, noting that they were being resent because the court had lost most stuff! In addition, I included a Time-Sensitive Judicial Notice of Adjudicative Facts – in semi-Emergency Fashion by OVERNIGHT FedEx and a Proposed Order for this case. -- NOTE: Looking above at the 8/21 entry (Notice of Motion) I gave the court timely notice of my intent to appear telephonically as the rules permit, but the court saw fit to disobey the rules. FedEx certified that my overnight deliveries to Craig in the Motions Department, who asked me to put it to his attention to that it didn't get lost again. (But it did!)

Since the docket reflected Atty. Andjelko Galic as the filer for the 08/21/2015 items (above), I thought that my filings were lost, and I resent them to the court (as described in my 10/29/2015 'correspondence' below). The "8/21/2015" entry and the "9/10/2015" entries were either lost or docketed incorrectly (or both!), but "the 3rd time will be a charm," and I think that these items were finally received and reviewed by the court.

To see the items filed, please refer to the 08/10/2015, 08/21/2015, and 09/10/2015 docket entries above.

PS: All 3 divisions are without excuse, as I communicated directly with all of them, as I was asked by multiple employees of the court:

11/23/2015 MEMORANDUM OF LAW FILED
2007-CH-29738
CHANCERY DIVISION
GMAC v. Daniggelis
Attorney: GALIC ANDJELKO
Docket says: "Participant: DANIGGELIS RICHARD," but the image is not available without a laborious, costly, and lengthy public records request.

UPDATE: I just purchased public records from the court. Holy cow!? Did you read that!? Atty. Galic admits, in so many words, that - basically - NO ONE has any earthly idea why the case was transferred (see point 3.) from the Chancery Division to the Law Division -- and that many records have been lost (see point 2.).

My legal analyses: The cross-claims of Atty. Younes, basically claiming that the elderly, 76-year-old defendant, Mr. Daniggelis, signed over his house, and just gave it to him - and gave up the hundreds of thousands of dollars in equity that others admit was lost, should not have been addressed in Chancery. The Chancery Division is a court of equities, and should have addressed the GMAC foreclosure complaint - and nothing else. The 'Contract Law' case, which is now in the Law division, was probably a more appropriate forum for such a complaint. Caveat: I'm not a lawyer. ~~Editor, Gordon W. Watts

I just mailed this off to the court and all parties and got signature confirmation and tracking for both the filing to Judge OTTO as well as the filing to the Clerk of the CHANCERY DIVISION of the Cook County, IL trial court. Not on docket as yet... (but should appear on docket soon - if the court/clerks don't lose my mail/filings once again!..) -- Oops - speak of the devil! Another screw-up: in that entire court, isn't there even one person to sign for what I mailed Priority Overnight to the Chancery Division or the Judge's chambers!? ~ Editor, Gordon W. Watts
UPDATE: I just spoke with Gerald Jones, Assistant Chief Deputy Clerk in CHANCERY, and he confirms my pleadings arrived safely. Gerald and his team are good guys who try to serve the public, even with the heavy workload they have. (I only wish the judges took their jobs as seriously.) Additionally, the U.S. Post Office confirms that both the service copy to Judge Otto (signed for by: 'J OBELHEIDE') and the service copy to the CHANCERY clerks (signed for by: 'G JONES') were received and signed for, and arrived safely.

PS: There is one small typo in my filing: I erroneously claim, on p.3, that I was finally able to file on August 10, 2005, but this is a clear typo: The case didn't even start until 2007, and I clearly meant that I was able to procure public records & file on Aug.10, 2015, not 2005. Sorry about that; however, this is the only 'major' typo (that changes the meaning) that I find after proof-reading.

CHANCERY DIVISION
GMAC v. Daniggelis

UPDATE: received by Court:
As filed: this link (original PDF), and, as docketed: this link (pp.1-9 of this 26-page PDF)

Gordon Wayne Watts, Pro Se
Notice of Appeal. NOTE: This notice contains several items, which are procedural and statutory requirements, but they're bundled together for the sake of simplicity: NOTICE OF APPEAL; NOTICE OF FILING; REQUEST FOR PREPARATION OF RECORD ON APPEAL; Rule 321 MOTION (SUGGESTION) TO BOTH COURTS to “Order Less”; and, "Rule 298. Application for Waiver of Court Fees," and, of course, the "CERTIFICATE AND AFFIDAVIT OF DELIVERY (aka: Certificate of Service)." ALSO: Since the courts keep losing my filings, and/or docketing them at a time different than the legal postal stamp (which is the standard for the timing issue), I'm including this scanned image to verify that I filed these using 2-day priority mail from the U.S. Postal Service: receipt-2007-CH-29738-Wednesday06January2016-NOTICE-of-APPEAL-GordonWayneWatts.jpg.

PS: Here's helpful “mortgage foreclosure-rescue fraud” case law re physical possession of property in both *.html Web-Page and PDF format, which suggests that the continued open and visible possession of the home by the scammed homeowner (Mr. Daniggelis') after being duped by the foreclosure rescue operator(s) may be sufficient to charge those subsequently acquiring title and security interests in the home with notice of the fraud, and thereby disqualifying them from bona fide purchaser status. DELIVERY NOTES: As of today, Wednesday, 13 January 2016, I note that I mailed all items on Jan.06, 2016, and got them postmarked. Both the Appeals Court and Judge Michael Otto got their copies, but there was a problem with the Civil Appeals Division copy, even though it was indeed addressed correctly. After some calls to the Post Office, I was finally able to convince them to both deliver it and get it signed for by a 'George Aridas,' who works in the mail room. So, my appeal, since it was time-stamped on time, is timely, and not late, according to Court Rules: Illinois Supreme Court Rule 373 says that they're ontime if they're postmarked on the due date, and, if they were "received after the due date, the time of mailing, or the time of delivery to a third-party commercial carrier for delivery to the clerk within three business days, shall be deemed the time of filing." (Rule 373. Date of Filing Papers in Reviewing Court; Certificate or Affidavit of Mailing) -- Since I used 2-Day Priority Mail, this qualifies, as "for delivery to the clerk within three business days," even if it actually took longer.

Clerk: APPELLATE COURT
Letter tells me I have to file Notice of Appeal with Circuit Court (Civil Appeals Division, Hon. Patricia O'Brien, Chief Deputy Clerk, presiding; PH: 312-603-5406). I know that, hello!? However, pursuant to Rule 303(c)Service of Notice of Appeal: “The party filing the notice of appeal or an amendment as of right, shall, within 7 days, file a notice of filing with the reviewing court...," that is, the appeals court, here which is what I did. So, why the concern?

Note to self: I just got a call from Robt. J. More, another litigant in this case, alleging that the Chancery Court has incurred Felony Criminal liability for helping steal Mr. Daniggelis' home, and, in support of this, has cited Fayerweather v. Ritch, 195 U.S. 276; 25 S.Ct. 58; 49 L.Ed. 193, which holds that Daniggelis was deprived of Substantive Due Process because "we held that a judgment of a state court might be here reviewed if it operated to deprive a party of his property without due process of law, and that the fact that the parties were properly brought into court and admitted to make defense was not absolutely conclusive upon the question of due process...'The mere form of the proceeding instituted against the owner, even if he be admitted to defend, cannot convert the process used into due process of law, if the necessary result be to deprive him of his property without compensation.' If a judgment of a state court can be reviewed by this court on error upon the ground that, although the forms of law were observed, it necessarily operated to wrongfully deprive a party of his property (as indicated by the decision just referred to), a judgment of the circuit court of the United States, claimed to give such unwarranted effect to a decision of a state court as to accomplish the same result, may also be considered as presenting the question how far it can be sustained in the view of the prohibitory language of the 5th Amendment, and thus involve the application of the Constitution."

Note: "the forms of law were observed" refers to Procedural Due Process (PDP), whilst the obvious theft of Daniggelis' house refers to a lack of Substantive Due Process (SDP). So, the Supreme Court, above, apparently is saying that it's possible for a court to give PDP while, at the same time, depriving someone of SDP. The Court went on to say: "Upon what is this contention based? First, the silence of the judgment, which contains no findings to indicate upon what it is based...," which suggests that the Illinois Courts' lack of explaining its ruling was a violation of PDP, strengthening the claim the end result was a violation of SDP. Note: The Court's comment about "testimony of the trial judge, given on the hearing in this case some six years after his decision in the state court" suggests that state court judges may, indeed, be compelled to testify in Federal Court. Hmm...?

My thoughts: This pits Judicial Immunity against 42 U.S. 1983 violations for deprivations of Daniggelis under colour of law. This would be a hard thing to litigate, given the current political environment, but given the fact that the various courts did not offer any legal justification for snatching away Daniggelis' property (with hundreds of thousands of dollars of equity in it) and giving it away to one of their colleagues (fellow-attorney, Joseph Younes), this is suspicious at the least-and smacks of cronyism and "Chicago-style" backroom deals, even if no actual Quid Pro Quo bribe was given: If the courts thought they were justified in doing so, one would think that they would offer some sort of explanation, even if it was a bad one, but, so far as I can tell from the court record, they offered no explanation. Odd... Maybe some friendly "legal reporter" for local Chicago press can explain it to me? ~~Editor

The docket lists Mr. Robert J. More like this, misspelling his last name. Why would judge Otto set this for a hearing if he didn't set my more serious and applicable motions for a hearing? (This is within the court's discretion.) Also, since More admitted that he's trespassed, banned, & barred from the courthouse (read his motion carefully), why would the court even entertain such a motion? (Do the court or judge even read this stuff?) More-importantly, however, why did the court outright steal Mr. Daniggelis' home and give it to Mr. Younes without any compensation?? ~Editor

CHANCERY DIVISION
GMAC v. Daniggelis

Attorney: PRO SE
Participant: UNKNOWN/WATTS
After many screw-ups, not the least of which includes the court stealing Daniggelis' home and property, and giving it to a local rich lawyer for no legal reason (and not compensating Daniggelis for it), the court then ignored my Rule 298 poverty declaration. (See the bottom of page 2, of the 01/14/2016 Notice of Appeal - scroll up just a few notches - where I clearly stated, in the header "Rule 298. Application for Waiver of Court Fees," a statement that I qualify for Waiver of Court fees.)

However, Patricia O'Brien, the Chief Deputy Clerk of the CIVIL APPEALS DIVISION said I needed specific paperwork filled out. When I asked her what it was, she did not know, and said each division is different, and to check with Chancery. After many calls, I finally got a hold of Chief Deputy Clerk, Cynthia M. Eddington, who sent me this court form, which I promptly filled out and then mailed back to Chancery, as I was asked to do. Ms. Eddington promises to forward this promptly to Judge Otto, who we expect will rule on it, one way or the other.

After all the screw-ups and lost paperwork (not to mention theft of my friend's house for no legal reason - and without compensation), you can bet that we will be tracking this package more-so than NORAD track's Santa's sleigh as it flies on Christmas night! (Maybe, this time, we will get justice. We will see.) ~Editor

UPDATE: As of today, Wed. 02-17-2016, FedEx reports that my poverty declaration was received & signed for late yesterday - apparently by Ms. Eddington. ~Editor

Order from Law Division judge on the 02/11/2016 poverty application in this Chancery case.

Order reads: "PETITIONER LACKS STANDING TO BRING SUIT ON BEHALF OF ANOTHER."

Two things wrong with this: First, why is a Law Division judge ruling on this matter. I know that this case was transferred to the law division, but the appeal is from the underlying Chancery Division. However, what is even more troubling is the clear obvious fact: The judge is either unwilling or unable to read: I did not bring suit on behalf of ANYONE, but rather filed a friend of the court brief with the appropriate motion to supplement the record on appeal. #BigDifference - #LearnToRead - #HonestyPlease - #LiberalActivistJudges

One last thing: Since there was probably only a small chance that the appeals court (who also was unfriendly regarding supplementing the record) would likely have upheld the unjust rulings in question, I don't see why this judge did not simply follow State Law regarding 298 Poverty applications, and simply forward on the appeal. He must have been really paranoid: It's not like it would have used that much judicial resources to address what, clearly, was/is a grave injustice in the theft of Mr. Daniggelis' house, without any compensation to him, whatsoever.~Editor

Amended Notice of Intervention by right, and, in the alternative, Petition for Intervention by Non-attorney, Robert J. More. This call on Nov. 13, 2015 to the voice-mail of Judge Tailor's chambers clarifies one aspect of misunderstanding: Mr. Daniggelis told me that Judge Tailor referred to 'Robert More from Florida,' as if to imply that Mr. More and myself are the same person, but I'm the guy from Florida, and he's the guy from Chicago. Therefore, this voicemail clears up the confusion that Judge Tailor obviously had -and verifies & proves that claim. ~Editor, Gordon W. Watts

Additionally, he has plenary rights as an Amicus Curiae, as Watts, himself argues here. So, the court is without excuse in denying Watts and More participation. Lastly, Watts - like Mr. More - is attempting to help Daniggelis get his house back, and is on the same side as Atty. Galic.

GMAC v. Daniggelis

UPDATE: received by Court:
As filed: this link (original PDF), and, as docketed: this link (pp.10-26 of this 26-page PDF)

Attorney: PRO SE; Participant: WATTS, Gordon Wayne
This is my motion for rehearing. It's on its way to the court, as I speak. ~~Editor
UPDATE: My motion for rehearing was signed for and received on Monday, December 21, 2015 at 3:54 pm (CST) in CHICAGO, IL 60602 by a "J DUK" (or: 'KUK' - see handwriting) in Judge Tailor's chambers, in suite #1912, and it was also signed for and received on Tuesday, on December 22, 2015 at 11:42 am in CHICAGO, IL 60602 by a "G (George) ARIDAS" in the Law Division at the Circuit Court in 50 W. Washington Street. Tho they were received after the Wednesday, 12/16/2015 deadline, they were not late: Illinois Supreme Court Rule 373 says that they're ontime if they're postmarked on the due date, and, if they were "received after the due date, the time of mailing, or the time of delivery to a third-party commercial carrier for delivery to the clerk within three business days, shall be deemed the time of filing." (Rule 373. Date of Filing Papers in Reviewing Court; Certificate or Affidavit of Mailing) -- Since I used 2-Day Priority Mail, this qualifies, as "for delivery to the clerk within three business days," even if it actually took longer.

Even if they actually get their after their intended date, then, since, of course, both Judge Tailor's copy and the Law Division's copy were sent via "Priority Mail 2-Day," then they are timely, and not late. (The rule only demands that they were sent "for delivery to the clerk within three business days," not necessarily 'actually' delivered within that time, and 2-day priority easily meets that standard. (But since the clerk's office keeps losing stuff, and then, even when it arrives, judges hand down "bone-headed" rulings, reminiscent of the infamous 'Dred Scot' ruling, I don't know how much I can trust them to deem my filings as timely!)

Actually, since you don't count the day of the act (or weekends), then Thursday was day-1, Friday was day-2, and Monday was day-3, and thus the judge (and thus, the court) got my motion for rehearing ontime, and not late. Actually, I waited until the "last minute" to file it because neither the court, clerk, nor lawyer who proposed this ruling (who actually had the legal duty of service) served me a copy of the court's ruling. Can you say 'comedy of errors!'

UPDATE: As of today, Friday, 08 January 2016, my motion for rehearing is still Lost & Missing: not on docket. However, while I think they're normally not supposed to do this, Pam Sumpter, in the Law Division, was good enough to ask me to email her the stuff that they lost three (3) other times: I sent the judge's chambers a copy of my Rehearing Motion, as well as the Law Division, and I even emailed them a courtesy copy. I hope that this time (the 4th time) they get it right, docket it, and that the judge doesn't enter another bone-headed ruling in this time-sensitive, life-or-death case! ~Gordon W. Watts

UPDATE: As of yesterday, Tuesday, 12 January 2016, the Law Division finally docketed my motion for rehearing, here, but dates it as '12/21/2016,' and the entry is below. Editor, ~Gordon W. Watts

The law clearly allows me to Intervene, so I was stupid to ignore this option early-on, but I was simply hoping that an Amicus Curiae ("Friend of the Court" brief) would be less invasive and more acceptable. Not sure why Illinois courts seem to hate Amici briefs, but it is what it is. FILED: Along with a Notice of Motion, a [ Sworn, Witnessed, and Notarised ] AFFIDAVIT OF GORDON WAYNE WATTS, as well as the three (3) exhibits included with the Affidavit, as follows:

*"Infamous-POA-reply-Shelton.pdf" (Interesting email exchange with disbarred IL Attorney, Paul L. Shelton, dated 05/16/2017)
*"MiscEXCHANGE-Shelton-Watts.pdf" (Another 5/16 email and my 5/17 reply to Shelton)
*"POA-Law.pdf"(My 5/18 reply where I school the attorney on POA limitations, but, hopefully in a respectful tone, as he was quite helpful on a number of points)

Younes v. Daniggelis
Attorney: PRO SE
The court's docket only has this one entry, but it refers to all 3 documents: The Affidavit, the Notice of Motion, and the "3-in-1" above, namely the Motion, proposed Amicus, & Exhibits. As with other entries, the court's date is off a little bit: This item was filed on 8/3/15, but the court's docket reflects 8/10/15. ~Editor

Younes v. Daniggelis
Attorney: PRO SE
On 08/16/2015, I filed a 'Notice of Motion,' a 'Motion to Supplement Record,' and a 'Proposed Order,' and sent these items by certified FedEx to document delivery. In fact, I served ALL parties, both in my Monday, August 03, 2015 filings and my Sunday, August 16, 2015 filings. However, the court lost these items filed on the 16th! {{{See e.g., Civil Division Case #: 2014-M1-701473 (JOSEPH YOUNES v. RICHARD DANIGGELIS) * Official Court Docket * Cached copy}}} Nonetheless, I was permitted to refile them, and the court docketed them with a date of '9/11/2015,' as reflected below.

CIVIL DIVISION
Younes v. Daniggelis
Attorney: Gordon W. Watts, PRO SE
As you can see, this Letter to 3 Civil Division judges, dated Friday, 02 October 2015 is listed here on my online docket. However, the court's docket (links at top of page: CIVIL DIVISION) do not have this. AGAIN: The Court loses stuff. But, I did file it: All the judges as well as the clerk & all the other parties were served via USPS, including, of course, Hon. Judge Diana Rosario, the Civil Division judge assigned to hear this case.

The court is in a sad state of affairs, continually losing and/or refusing to process & file life-of-death pleadings, such as this, which deal with the elderly, 76-year-old friend of mine whose house was stolen in a "mortgage rescue scheme," making him homeless, which is not good for an elderly person.

* USPS TRACKING DATA - this was timely received by the following recipients:
*The filing to the Clerk of the CIVIL Division was delivered and signed for by a 'G ARRIDAS'.
*The filing to the Hon. Judge Patrice Munzel Ball-Reed (Associate Judge, LAW Division) was delivered and signed for by a 'V BROWN'.

*The filing to Atty. Joseph Younes, Esq. was sent by standard First Class U.S. Postal Mail (in duplicate: note the 2x$0.49 = $0.98), but not by expensive 'Signature Confirmation' because he was insubordinate & rebellious regarding receiving service the last time, as evidenced by this documentation, showing "Shipment Refused by Recipient," from FedEx TRACKING.

1st MUNICIPAL DIVISION
City of CHIGAGO v. Younes, et al.
Participant: GORDON WAYNE WATTS
Whoops!.. What was that? I heard unconfirmed rumours that my Motion to Intervene was denied because Mr. Daniggelis (allegedly) didn't want me to intervene. [That is false, as he's said that he doesn't mind, so long as I don't rock the boat or otherwise cause trouble.] Moreover, it matters not what he thinks, as both statutory and case law says my rights to intervene are absolute, so long as I meet certain criteria: It doesn't depend on his views, but simply a matter of fact, as he admits he owes me for certain research; and, like any other lien placed against a property, it matters not what the owner thinks. Another (more believable) rumour has it that my motion was struck because I failed to appear "in person" to present my motion. While "in person" presentation is the norm, not all motions are heard in person, as I argue in my notice, here. Lastly, since I demonstrate in my notice, here, that the court didn't even **receive** my motion until after the hearing time (FedEx had a late delivery), it seems quite impossible that I could have been denied a motion that hadn't yet been received by the court. What seems more likely is they were probably discussing my 04/22/2017 legal memo, and since others seem to have gotten my email service of my 05/17/2017 filing, they might have been discussing that, and the judge may have commented on that--even tho she had not gotten her service copy, due to FedEx being late.
* FedEx and USPS TRACKING DATA - this was timely received by the following recipients:

Burse, Mail Room Manager (to deliver filings to both the LAW Division clerk and the judge's chambers) signed for by: "S.FRIEDER" on Delivery date: July 10, 2017, @ 11:00am CST, at the Receptionist/Front Desk of 50 West Washington Street of the courthouse, and for delivery to Judge Shelley's chambers. (Probably, however, it was signed for by M.Salome, looking at the signature, and probably the other signature was one on file with FedEx.)
