Mark Stopa | Hon W. Douglas Baird – Another Motion to Disqualify Judge… For Lying?


“The undersigned was, respectfully, quite upset. After all, the Judge could not have reviewed the Amended Motion to Dismiss because, for unknown reasons, it had not been filed. As such, it was, respectfully, the Judge had been caught in, at best, a misrepresentation, or, at worst, a lie. As such, the undersigned told the Judge words to the effect of “respectfully, Judge, you couldn’t have reviewed the Amended Motion to Dismiss because it had not even been filed.”

In response, the Judge looked at the Court file and said “here it is,” or words to that effect, pointing to the Amended Motion to Dismiss. However, the undersigned immediately told the Judge that the copy of the Amended Motion to Dismiss that he was looking at was attached to the Motion to Vacate, which was filed after the Order was entered. Hence, it was clear the Amended Motion to Dismiss had not been filed as of the date of the Order.”


Another Motion to Disqualify Judge

I had a disturbing hearing today before a local judge.  By way of background … this is the only judge in this area who rules upon (and, nearly always) denies motions to dismiss without a hearing.  Candidly, I’ve often suspected that the judge does not read these motions to dismiss as carefully as he should.  I hate to say it, but I’ve sometimes wondered if he reads them at all.

Anyway, at today’s hearing, I argued that his prior Order denying the Motion to Dismiss should be vacated because he had not ruled on my Amended Motion to Dismiss (which was drafted specifically because he tends to rule on motions to dismiss without a hearing).  When he tried saying he had reviewed the Amended Motion and had intended to deny it through his “inartfully” drafted Order, I had no choice but to inform him, in open court, that he could not have read the Amended Motion to Dismiss prior to his Order because the Amended Motion to Dismiss was not even in the Court file.

    Mark please post the order denying disqualification and the 2nd DCA order denying writ of prohibition. It may awaken those who think we still have a fair and impartial judicialry.

    Proof that absolute corruption corrupts absolutely. ALL non-Judicial foreclosures should be halted. They are UNCONSTITUTIONAL therefore they should be ruled illegal by their Supreme Court. Michigan is trying to stop them because it looks like maybe they are starting to realize, non-judicial foreclosures are highly illegal and there could be serious legal and monetary consequences soon because of the lack of due process and the rampant mortgage fraud such as MERS that clearly poses a serious threat of major lawsuits and lengthy litigations to the criminals robbing all of us and the State and local Govts.. All foreclosures should be halted. There are so many who do not know what is being done to them it is just awful even in judicial states..A Nationwide Foreclosure Moratorium is well over due.

    I know of many liar judges in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court (Cleveland, Ohio).

    I also know of crooked and liar judges/magistrates in Berea, Ohio.

      Do you now how to get rid of a NYSC Judge that took a bribe from title attorneys from Fidelity National Title and Coronet Title when they knowingly insured two forged deeds but rather than indemnify and pay, paid the judge instead.
