|Fairness in America an illusion||Jan Lightfoot||Jun 03 2006 17:42:46|
Now comes the petitioner to set forth the theory that “Fair and meaningful ACCESS TO The Courts for all American citizens”, is the bases of freedom. Or as Robert J Grey Jr. President of the American Bar Association, recently sums up this thought
It’s not just my theory. It the bases upon which the founding fathers of the USA proposed. That meaningful access to all Courts be had by rich and poor alike. Democracy is not based on finality of decisions, based on technicalities of pleadings.
In this particular case I ask you to examine “I felt the adversarial lawyer, to be more- fair and open-minded then was the Justice
There are web sites open to the discussion of unfair lawyers. With all the respect due, this topic of unfair actions by the Courts is gaining in the public awareness. Denial of meaningful use of the courts to the poor, is becoming public knowledge.
The esteem Judicial system demanding Pro-se’s has an artificial standard level of the technical knowledge of the law, of an lawyer. This places the entire class of people who can not afford a lawyer into a category where they must be better than a first year lawyer.
The working class must be as learned as an attorney who has been practicing for 7 years or more. While working hard at another job, the people who are the backbone for the American way of life are lucky to be earning $7.50 an hour. These folks who stock and ring up your food, who fix the automobiles of Doctors and lawyers, lacks both the energy and the time to go to law library to study or to quote case-law. They can work for lawyers, yet lack the funds to hire one to plead their cause.
This is a constitutionality impressible arbitrary criterion, because it is vague. Its a criteria which denies meaningful access to the courts for anyone who cannot afford an attorney. ....
Maine Supreme Court,PO Box 368, Portland ME 04112
Dear Chief Justice Leigh Saufley:
I am one of many persons who is aware of an appeal brought by Jan Hoag, SOM-06-145 asking you honors examine an alleged unlawful practice of lower courts. We are informed judges more often than not are dismissing cases brought without hiring a lawyer. These cases are tossed out of court -on purely technicalities.
I not only want Maine Courts to have the appearance of Justice. But Maine Courts should be a place where an impartial decider of fact, actually hears the case. I will not just be watching to see the result of this case, I will have hope that Maine Supreme Court, provides justice, for those who cannot afford a legal advocate.
I am aware of an appeal which could have an out come affecting half of all Mainer’s. While it arises from a car accident case not being heard, this appeal should have a community impact on Maine’s “quality of Justice.” While you might only receive a handful of communication on this issue, its more than you usually receive. I will be informed of the changes and rulings on this case.
It has been brought to my attention that judges are dismissing many cases in which one strives to represent themselves.
This is not hearing the facts of the cases are contrary actions in the name of Justice. It is merely a false impression of justice. I ask you to fix this injustice
I will watch to see how this case affecting the working poor, and the lower middle classes turns out.
You can also send a copy to myself at PO Box 62 Hinckley ME. 04944, the Portland Herald and your local newspaper so you are not dependant upon myself to update you. Or you can phone the court at 822-4146 for an update. The pen is more powerful then the sword its time NOW to pull out your pen. JAN
