Appellate Judge stops invited member of the public from speaking to the Commission on the Structural Alternative for the U.S. Courts of Appeal Chicago "Public Hearing".

Marshals secure room and bar the public's re-entry. Visibly shaken judges make hasty exit to "security area". Justin Garriott, reporting

On April 3, 1998, at a "public hearing" in Chicago, a panel of appellate judges meeting with the public about ways to improve the Appellate Courts heard more than it was ready or willing to hear. After reminding the panel of Senator Joseph Biden's remark in 1990 that "the courtroom doors are closed to the American public", Chicago pro se Peter Jon Simpson told the judges that those doors "are now permanently welded shut". In a often scathing report which he was invited to deliver, Simpson attempted to relate several cases of blatant intellectual dishonesty, judicial misconduct, perjury, and obstruction of justice that, named numerous federal judges in several districts currently on the bench. Simpson's message was so unsettling and unwelcome that the judges were visibly unnerved and Judge Gilbert Merritt ultimately cut Mr. Simpson off, "recessing" a public hearing then barely two hours old.

Apparently the message frightened them as well. One minute into Simpson's remarks, a federal marshal left the room, returning with five more. The marshals moved closer to Simpson when he asked Judge Merritt why he couldn't extend his remarks, when licensed attorneys were allowed to extend theirs. Judge Merritt and his associates, Judge Rymer, U. Virginia law professor Daniel Meador and a staff member exited quickly after denying this member of "the public" a hearing at this allegedly "public hearing". While in recess, the marshals told Simpson, his family and this reporter to "take it out into the hall". When all immediately complied with that order, the Marshals stood in front of the doors, preventing re-entry.

Judge Merritt promised the full text of Mr. Simpson's remarks would be posted on the Commissions website. Said Mr. Simpson later, "It will probably be an air-conditioned day in Hell before that happens". "We the people" shall soon see, even though "We the people" cannot be heard. Mr. Simpson's complete presentation follows.

Address to the Commission on the Structural Alternatives for the Courts of Appeal @ Chicago, April 3, 1998, Peter Jon Simpson Christian Legal Education Association & Research 4842 N. Magnolia Chicago 60640-4710 773-878-0681 voice 0682 fax

I am Peter Jon Simpson, an American with firsthand knowledge of the Federal Judiciary today. Thank you for your invitation. Restructuring the Appellate Courts involves 3 questions:

1) What does a non-lawyer litigant in America have to do to get his case read by a judge who understands the law and a Constitutional question before him?

2) What does a non-lawyer litigant in America have to do to get his Appeal placed before a panel of judges who will a) read it and who b) understands the law and the Constitutional question before them?

3) What do Americans have to do to experience good, old fashioned legal reform? History notes in 1066 William The Conqueror landed in England, burned his ships behind him and lost half his army in the 1st battle he fought. He conquered England anyway. Why? Because as the retreating English King sent for the people to come to the defense of the King & the fatherland, the people refused his call.

Why? They ignored the invasion of their own country because the corrupt federal judges of their day had reduced them to slaves on the land. There were 2 set of rules, one for the King's cronies, another for the people. The people, facing a legal system that worked solely for the benefit of the privileged elite, stood by as the invaders marched.

Do you know why many today would not lift a finger if an enemy came to these shores and threatened you members of this panel, your cronies, and the silk- stocking lawyers and judges that surround me in this room? Do you know why many would pray for the success of the invaders? Do you know why many disenfranchised Americans would actually help the invaders, hoping for a better deal from our enemy than the deal they've received from the corrupt and reprehensible reprobates who parade as federal judges today?

In the legislative history of the Judicial Improvements Act of 1990, Senator Joseph Biden remarked "... the courthouse door is closed to the American people". Believe me, it is now permanently welded shut. I am the living embodiment of that. Can any of you explain why today, non-lawyers like me who study and raise constitutional questions in Federal courts, are laughed at, ignored or worse?

Kilgore wrote in Judicial Tyranny, "Tyranny cannot come to America until judges become intellectually dishonest".

In 1991 my daughter was removed from my home at gunpoint, without any court process whatsoever as required by state law. She was then assaulted and sexually molested by government bureaucrats and their agents. Ignoring a direct warning of the United States Supreme Court, I foolishly appealed to justice, filing a Federal Civil Rights Lawsuit. It was summarily dismissed after 58 docket entries in 60 days. I have waited over 7 years for my constitutionally guaranteed "day in court". I am still waiting.

Mr. Justice White, can you explain to me how I get my $120 filing fee back. I paid for trial by impartial jury, not summary dismissal. I drew Federal Judge Scott O Wright, known in Missouri as "Judge Scott All Wrong", the District's Chief Judge. He has risen to his level of incompetence. Scott All Wrong is as intellectually dishonest as the worst of despots.

Can any of you learned judges explain to me why Judge Wrong has done absolutely everything in his power to keep me from bringing those who molested my daughter to trial? Absolutely everything?

Can any of you learned judges explain to me why the Federal Prosecutors laughed in my face when I asked for a grand jury investigation of the crimes visited on my then innocent three year old daughter?

Please, save your suggestions about hiring a lawyer for someone who knows less than I do about our "caste-system legal system".

Can any of you learned judges explain to me why no lawyer-- not one-- dared lift a finger to help me? They all told my father as he waived his checkbook at them, "we wouldn't touch this case with a 10 foot pole".

Mr. Justice White, can you explain to me how I can get my daughter's innocence back? Can you please tell me how I can stop the nightmares from waking her, how I can make her not flinch whenever she sees a cop?

My 1st go at the 8th Circus Court of Appeals won a summary reversal. Since then, the 8th Circus judges have gone out of their way to deny me relief unless & until I surrender my daughter to the very bureaucrats who assaulted & molested her. Can any of you learned judges explain this to me?

This panel has already learned live & firsthand that in the 11th Circus no pro se petition ever reaches a judge's desk. Those opinions are decided and written by clerks or staff lawyers. From my experience, the same is true in every Appellate Circuit. Can any of you learned judges explain to me why?

Is this what we the people pay federal judges $100,000+ per annum, plus perks to do? Is this what passes for "intellectual honesty" in the Federal Appellate Courts these days? Can any of you learned judges explain any of this to me?

An eyewitness to this commission's Atlanta March 23rd meeting wrote me: "Peggy did a fine job during the Commission Hearing. I sat in the back and observed Senior Judge Hatchett who sat in the back mid section. He started freaking out, looking back at the U.S. Marshall, not once or twice but times. When Peggy mentioned the thousands of 372 Complaints, he got up and called in extra U.S. Marshals. I JOKE NOT. By the time the Marshals arrived, the hearing was adjourned."

Can any of you learned judges explain to me why this distinguished panel does not possess the integrity to place a true and exact copy of Peggy Dadic's complete remarks from that hearing on its web-site? Will my remarks appear?

Is this panel aware of the revelations surrounding 7 U.S. Supreme Court receiving expensive trips & cash honoraria from West Publishing Co. while West litigated in actions before that Supreme Court? I have seen nothing from N Lee Cooper, Esq. or his private country-club American Bar Association about such conduct, conduct that would make the most depraved South American Dictator blush. Can any of you learned judges explain why? Is Mr. Cooper too busy?

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune and the American Spectator magazine had the integrity at the time to publish the facts. Did Mr. Cooper miss those reports because they're hard to read through the cigar-smoke in the back rooms where most cases are decided and "the fix" is arranged?

Do you members of this Commission know what regular Americans, especially non-lawyer litigants, face in these federal courts every day?

The 8th Circus Chief Judge is Richard Arnold. He sits on that alongside his brother Morris Arnold, in willful & premeditated violation of the very law they both swore to uphold, the Anti-Nepotism Statute @ 28 U.S.C 458.

The 8th Circus lies to Congress, falsifying the number of Complaints filed and responds that this is a problem for the legislature. Is it not true that it wouldn't matter anyway, as today's Federal Judiciary simply ignores the Congress with impunity and writes law on its own? In our "caste-system legal system", like England's in 1066, there are two sets of rules today: one for me and my family and regular Americans, and another set of rules for the privileged elite like Richard and Morris.
