When I decided to file a civil rights complaint against Pocono Regional Police and CYS in Monroe County, I was told I couldn't do it myself I needed a Lawyer. Then I filed the civil suit for 16 Million Dollars and I was told it wouldn't go anywhere. Soon after I filed for motions court and the first Judge told me I needed to learn the law and the system to go home and come back better prepared. I filed several motions court appearances due to the defendants failure to appear or respond, and still the Judge laughed and told me to give them more time. I finally filed for default judgement because the defendants never bother to answer or appear. I immediatelly go try to execute my judgement and defendants decide to file all sorts of petitions, and arguments, guess what the judge meets them without my presence and makes a decision. I decide to File a First amendment Complaint aI then and was told that it would be tossed out, and I then appear in argument and was never given a proper response or requested documents. I finally filed to Appeal to Superior Court and was laughed at and told that the higher court will never see my case or even given the opportunity to argue without an attorney, but you know what HERE I AM at Superior Court with a 16million Dollar Judgement and ON MY OWN, when I was told I couldn't. YES I CAN, YES I WILL, and YES I DID less »
