Commission No. 2011 PR00106


Oral Argument Requested

Lanre O. Amus Motion to Reconsider the Order of May 16, 2014 Suspending My
Law License for 3 Years and until Further Order of the Court Because That Order
Was Procured by Fraud. The Suspension Rationale that I made False Statements
about the Integrity of Judges is Absurd and a Pretext Orchestrated by Fraud in
Retaliation for My Complaining About Judicial Corruption. I Demand An
Independent Public Transparent and Videotaped Investigation into This Fraud and the
Immediate Reinstatement of My Law License and Compensation for Damages Caused.
Independent Investigation will Confirm that I Did Not Make False Statements.

must at All Times Be Persons With Good Conscience who are Honest,
Transparent, Accountable, Fair, Impartial and Act with Integrity in Discharging
the Duties of That Office. They must Be People Who Respect the Oath They
Took Before God and Man to Administer Justice Fairly and Impartially Without
Respect for Persons.

Unfortunately, Your Decision in this Case Has Raised Serious Issues About Your
Integrity and Your Ability to Administer Justice Fairly and Impartially Where an
Attorney, Lanre O. Amu, Discharged His Civic Duty by Complaining about
Judicial Corruption Concerning Your Colleagues in the Judiciary.

Your Decision To Date Indicate that You Have Simply Closed Ranks to Pervert
Justice by Retaliating Against Attorney Lanre O. Amu by Claiming He Made
False Statements about the Integrity of Judges as Pretext to Suspend His Law
License for 3 Years.

I Now Ask That You Reconsider Your Decision and Vacate the Suspension of
My Law License Immediately, and to Conduct a Transparent Independent
Videotaped Investigation into this Matter Because There Is No False Statement,
and No False Statement Will Be Found If an Authentic Investigation Was Done.

As Justices of the Illinois Supreme Court, You Are Not above the Law. None of
Us Is above the Law. We All must Be Transparent and Accountable under the
Law.

The paramount interest at all times is the Public Interest. We All Have the Duty
and Obligation to Act Solely in the Public Interest, Not Self-preservation Interest,

I Have Written Each of You an Open Letter Dated June 16, 2014, and I Strongly
Suggest That Each of You Read the Letter in Private and Reflect Seriously on
What Has Happened Here. We Are All Responsible for Our Conduct. For the
Reasons Stated in the My Open Letter to the Illinois Supreme Court Dated June
16, 2014 Which Is Incorporated as Appendix #1, I Now Ask That You Reconsider
Your Decision and Vacate the Suspension of My Law License Immediately, and
Remand this Matter on How I Will Be Compensated for the Harm Caused to Me.

I Am Not Aware of Any Principle of Law, Morality, Ethics, Logic or Reason That
in Fairness Justifies this Abuse of Power to Destroy another For the Sole Purpose
of Self Preservation, and Window Dressing.

10

In Appendix #1, I Have Detailed Examples That Show That I Am a Victim of


Race and Ethnic Prejudice. (Including in Appendix #1, Sections 61 to 65). If You
are Human Beings, I Do Not Have to Look like You or Be of the Same Race or
Ethnicity with You to Have You Respect My Rights as a Person Under the Law.
You Have a Moral and Ethical Duty to Respect My Human Rights and to
Discharge the Duties of Your Office Honestly, Transparently, Fairly, Impartially,
and with Integrity. A Failure in that Regard Indicates you are not Honorable
Human Beings but Imposters Wrecking Havoc in Our Society in Pursuit of Your
Self-Interests.

Having found me guilty of making false statements about the integrity of judges
and suspending my law license for 3 years, I now demand that you state which

statements about the integrity of judges I made are in fact false by answering the
following two questions:

i.

Specifically state each and everyone of my statements that is false

ii.

For each listed statement, please state how the determination was
LEGALLY made that the statement is false by CLEAR AND
CONVINCING EVIDENCE.

For Example:

(ii) How We Determined the Statement to


be False according to Law by Clear and

I Have Inquired of the Answers to These Same Questions from Your Agency, the
ARDC, Without an Answer.

13

Most recently, I attended the ARDC Ethics 2014 seminar in Chicago on June 4,
2014. I asked a variation of essentially the same question and gave the flyer
incorporated herein as Appendix #2 to the panel of lecturers in the afternoon
session, including Scott Renfroe of the ARDC. The panel of lecturers promised
me they would answer my ethics question by the end of the Ethics 2014 Seminar.
They did not. They have not answered the question as at today June 16, 2014.

In light of the evidence I detailed in Appendix #2, why am I being suspended?


Who has refuted anything I stated in Appendix #2? I Ask you Justices of the

Illinois Supreme Court, in Good Conscience and Consistent with the Oath You
Took Before God and Man to Discharge Justice Fairly and Impartially Without
Respect for Persons: Between ARDC and myself, Lanre O. Amu, Who Is
Making False Statements in Light of Appendix #2? This Perversion of Justice is
an Abomination to God and Cannot Stand Otherwise Each and Everyone of You
must Give Account to God for this Perversion of Justice on Your Day of
Judgment. Those Who Pervert Justice must Meet with Perversion of Justice in the
Affairs of Their Lives and the Lives of Their Children Because What Is Good for
the Goose Is Good for the Gander. It is appointed for man to die once, and after
that comes Judgment. Hebrews 9:27. On your day of Judgment, there will be no
Pretense, no Guile, and no Manipulation before the Omniscient God. When you
meet face-to-face with your Maker, I hope the anchor of your Soul will hold up
concerning your deeds on Gods Earth.
15

On June 4, 2014, I presented the Ethics questions to the following ARDC


personnel: Jerome Larkin, James Grogan, Scott Renfroe, Wendy Muchman,
Robert J. Verrando, and Steven R. Splitt. As at today, none of them has answered
the question. I would appreciate your providing answers to the questions in #4
above as part of your response to my motion to reconsider.

16

Your order suspending me from the practice of law for 3 years and until further
order of the court was procured by fraud. I now demand an open, public and
VIDEOTAPED investigation to expose this fraud so it does not happen to
someone else again.

and VIDEOTAPED investigation to expose this fraud. The answers to the
questions I asked in #4 above are in the public interest.

WHEREFORE Lanre O. Amu Moves the Court to Reconsider the Order of May 16,
2014 Suspending My Law License for 3 Years and until Further Order of the Court
Because That Order Was Procured by Fraud. The Suspension Rationale that I made False
Statements about the Integrity of Judges is Absurd and a Pretext Orchestrated by Fraud in

The Illinois Supreme Court Decision


Suspending Amus Law License : With All Due Respect5, Your Finding That I Made False
Statements about the Integrity of Some Judges is
Unprincipled and a Pretext. This Shows that You are
without evidence against Lanre O. Amu and commenced sham ARDC proceedings in tandem
with the ARDC Hearing Board, and the ARDC Review Board. I wrote to Mr. Jerome Larkin the
ARDC Administrator informing him of these abuses of delegated authority under his watch, but
he ignored all of my communications to him. Reminiscent of what Jesus Christ condemned with
one of his harshest statements in the Bible, Matthew 21:12-13, these people have effectively
turned the ARDC into the Attorney Railroad and Deceit Commission of the Illinois Supreme
Court, located in Crook County, Illinois. They give cover to corrupt connected judges and
lawyers, while persecuting the often seemingly clout-less solo attorney(s) who exposes their
corruption. They rehabilitate the corrupt by portraying the whistle blower attorney as a liar and
suspending his law license through their Kangaroo Proceedings-how cruel? One must be content
that Jerome Larkin, Robert J. Verrando, and Steven R. Splitt, and their children will meet with
the same calamity they visit on innocent attorney(s) because what is good for the goose is good
for the gander. God is a God of justice. Having no Conscience, they have compromised their
office, essentially replacing In God We Trust emblematic in the courtrooms with In Deceit
We Trust. Legitimate prosecution of attorneys by the ARDC are smoke screens for illegitimate
persecutions and cover ups. ARDC forgets that judicial corruption causes attorneys to stumble.

These ARDC hearing officers were not faithful to the Oath of Office. Commonsense
should not be suspended even at the ARDC. We suspend Commonsense when we want to act
corruptly and defraud another. They were puppets of the ARDC.
4

These ARDC review board officers were not faithful to the Oath of Office. Commonsense should not be suspended even at the ARDC. We suspend Commonsense when we want to
act corruptly and defraud another. A review of the 20-25 minutes audiotape of the oral argument
and their subsequent written opinion will reveal that they were mere puppets of the ARDC.

our profound national commitment to the principle that debate on public issues should be
uninhibited, robust, and wide-open, and that it may well include vehement, caustic, and
sometimes unpleasantly sharp attacks on government and public officials. Garrison v. Louisiana)

Intentionally Ignored Objective Truth in the Evidence.
You Are Not God Fearing. You Have No Conscience. You
Have Replaced In God We Trust that is Emblematic in
Our Courtrooms with In Deceit We Trust. Your
Decision in This Case is a Charade, a Whitewash, and a
Product of Race and Ethnic Prejudice Against Amu Who

That A1s Statement Is False and Suspend A1s Law License
With no Sworn Testimony from A2 and J. Where A1 Subpoenaed
A2 and J, the Supreme Court Obstructs Justice by Quashing A1's
Subpoenas. That in a Nutshell is this Case. How Can the
Supreme Court Deprive an Attorney the Means of Making a
Living for Doing His Civic, Moral and Religious Duty to Expose
Judicial Corruption That Negatively Impacts Him, and Our
Society? Where Is the Corrective Mechanism If an Attorney
Cannot Write a Complaint about Judicial Corruption?

You should articulate and/or show the Whole World on VIDEOTAPE giving Amu equal
opportunity to rebut on the same video, the EVIDENCE you have that Amu made false

M.R.26545

Dear Honorable Illinois Supreme Court Justices:


Your Decision is a Plot to Coverup Judicial Corruption Within Your Ranks & Silent Attorneys
1

With all due respect and in all humility, your Order of May 16, 2014 suspending my law
license for 3 years for allegedly making false statements concerning the integrity of four
judges in written complaints concerning judicial corruption that I filed between 2002 and
2011 (a 9 year period) is unlawful and unjust. For all of the reasons stated in this letter
and more, I demand that that order be reconsidered by you, and now vacated in the
Interest of Fairness and Justice Which You Were Sworn Before God and Man to
Uphold.

On three separate occasions, I have sent you written briefs debunking all of ARDCs
claims and arguments against me. You turned a blind eye to the true evidence because
you believe you are free to do what you want as the Justices of the Illinois Supreme
Court. I respectfully disagree with you. You are not free to do whatever you want. You
are bound by Oath to follow the law. You must respect the law. You cannot ignore the
evidence and the law while claiming the right to judge. That is lawlessness. I am not
aware of any principle of law, morality, logic or reason that supports what you have done
in this matter. The grand deception in your decision is who determines what is True or
False Statement? Should non-witnesses to the occurrence narrated by attorney Lanre O.
Amu be the determinants of what is True or False Statement? How does that make sense?
Do they have crystal balls?

Have you considered the psychological impact of seeing wrongdoing and not being able
to report it? An analogy: if I am going home and I see a drunk driver strike and kill a
pedestrian and drive off, and I am the only person who saw the license plate of the hit and
run vehicle. My morals demand that I report it to the authorities, otherwise, I cannot keep
silent and look myself in the mirror. The same holds true for reporting judicial
corruption. The public interest demands that such be reported; the attorney has to
maintain a sense of balance and look at himself in the mirror again; the attorney needs to
clear his conscience and level with his client that he has no hand in what just happened
and that he detests it; it is a waste of attorneys time, resources and an injury to the
attorney and his clients. There is a moral, ethical and legal duty to report judicial
corruption. It is the right thing to do. There is no authority anywhere for retaliation and
suspending a lawyers license for doing the right thing.

For over 15 years I have practice law with High Distinction representing primarily
everyday people in Our Society including: the poor, the oppressed, the weak, the injured,
the damned, the voiceless, etc. These people run to the court for relief when they are
wronged or injured only to discover that corrupt judges and lawyers will gang up to deny
them justice in their Courtrooms. Their plight and mine in part informed my principled
stand to write the complaints I wrote about judicial corruption. My written complaints, if
seen in their totality and in the proper context, were in the nature of constructive criticism

of Our system for the administration. I offered alternatives or reforms from my personal
experience that will make Our court system more Honest, Transparent, Accountable and
Just. My prime motivation was the public interest in curbing corruption. Why I should
lose my law license for this and under these circumstances is baffling. I have done
nothing wrong. If there had not been judicial corruption, I had no basis to write
complaints about judicial corruption. Its also not about my receiving adverse rulings in
isolation as misrepresented by ARDC. I had received in 16 years of legal practice over
1,000 adverse rulings in our various courtrooms.
5

Civility codes must be applied by you in context given the totality of the circumstances.
A lawyer is primarily called to be Honest and work for justice on behalf of his clients not
necessarily to be civil with those perverting justice in the courthouse, but to expose them.
Judicial corruption is a violent crime even when perpetrated with just a judicial pen or
stamp, by a calm judge with no spoken words. The response to Judicial Corruption does
not necessarily have to be civil. For example, Jesus entered the temple courts and drove
out all those who were buying and selling there, and overturned the tables of the money
changers . . . He said to them, "it is written, 'My House shall be called a House of Prayer';
but you are making it a den of robbers." Matthew 21:12-13. Jesus Christ was not civil
with the corrupt money changers in the temple courts. We have the fundamental right to
confront Judicial Corruption aimed at enslaving us!

As a matter of principle, I am unapologetic in telling your Majesties that concerning the


question whether or not there is judicial corruption in Illinois, the Emperor is Without
Clothes! I humbly stand by my statements. My statements have not been contradicted by
anyone. Your attempts at covering up Judicial Corruption by conjuring that I made false
statements about the integrity of the judges is, with all due respect, incredible, socially
irresponsible, absurd, disingenuous, laughable, and futile. Akin to shutting the barn gate
after the horse has bolted. There is no hiding place on this one! The suppressed evidence
will spring forth in earnest only if your Majesties stop obstructing justice and allow a
videotaped evidentiary exchange (15 to 30 minutes) so the Whole World can weigh in on
this matter. Slavery has ended in America. 13th Amendment to the United States
Constitution. All schemes and guises to oppress people that do not look like you or are
not connected must now begin to fail and fail completely. We are all Created by God and
deserve to live on Gods Earth without man made shackles to keep us down and
oppressed.

With all due respect to your Honors, the question is not whether there is Judicial
Corruption in Illinois. The appropriate question is: how do we curb and/or eliminate
Judicial Corruption in Illinois. Whatever systems are in place at this time to curb Judicial
Corruption in Illinois are for lack of a better word,inadequate because there is
unchecked judicial corruption in Illinois. In Illinois, no one Judges the lawless Judges.
The justices sit in judgment of themselves and the lawyers who can expose judicial
corruption. There is need for reform in the Illinois Judicial system, the Illinois Court
System and the Illinois Legal System vis-a-vis curbing Court Corruption in Illinois. We

must fight to wrest our Courts from the strangle hold of special interest Judges, Justices,
Lawyers, big businesses, insurance companies, etc., and put the Best Interest of All of the
Peoples of Illinois First.
8

In the Courts of Illinois of today, especially when there is a lot of money at stake,
anything can happen irregardless of the evidence and the applicable law. The right to a
fair trial, the facts, the evidence and/or the law play second fiddle to special interests
consideration in a corrupt judges determination of the ultimate outcome of cases. There
is a proliferation of Kangaroo proceedings and sham trials in high stakes litigation aimed
at defrauding those who have no connection or clout in favor of special interests. Coded
legalese, spurious legal arguments, unlawful tactics, strings of citations to bogus case law
and/or statutes are often subterfuge for fraud in high stakes litigation. The more complex
the issues in the case the greater the opportunity for fraud. There is need for reform and
the establishment of a means of bringing court and judicial malpractice of these kinds to
the attention of authorities without retaliation so as to improve the quality of justice for
everyone in Illinois.

The People of Illinois Deserve an Honorable, Honest, Accountable and Transparent Judiciary
9

Integrity demands that we Act in the Best Interest of the People at all times. As such, in
writing this Sworn letter to you, I seek your indulgence to pardon my frankness in
communicating with you. I ask that you separate the Honorable office of the Illinois
Supreme Court from the actual individuals currently holding the office of justices of the
Illinois Supreme Court. We can all agree that everybody including lawyers and nonlawyers alike should respect our Court system and its judicial officers, including judges
and justices. But that being said, respect for a judge or justice is conditioned on the judge
or Justice respecting the Oath of Office he or she took to dispense justice honestly, and
transparently without respect for persons. I strongly believe that a Judge or Justice who
violates the Oath of office and perverts justice does not deserve to be respected, he or she
deserves to be Exposed. Such a Judge or Justice is a danger to Our Society far worse than
the drug dealer peddling drugs on the street, or the street gang that besieges a bank on the
street corner. Again, to avoid misunderstanding of my statements in this letter, we must
separate the unquestionable respect for the Office of the Illinois Supreme Court from the
conduct or the misconduct of the individuals holding that office. A Corrupt Judge or
Justice must be Exposed for the Betterment of Our Society given the Harm wrath by
Judicial Corruption. Exposure is a deterrent to Judicial Corruption. Without Exposure
Judicial Corruption will Flourish in Illinois to the Detriment of the Common People.
There Is a Place for Respectful Peaceful Confrontation Between the Erring Judge or
Justice Acting under the Color of Title or Position and the Wronged Whistle blower.

The People of Illinois deserve to have Honest and Faithful people occupy the office of
the Supreme Court of Illinois and other judicial offices at all times. The real danger here
is that the citizenry passively assumes that the court system functions properly and are
unconcerned until some crisis arises in their lives or in the lives of their loved ones. If or

when calamity strikes in the lives of these everyday individuals, and they run to the
Courthouse seeking Justice, its often too late at that point to realize in amazement that
Our Justice System in Illinois often caters to Special Interests ahead of the evidence and
the law. There are honest dedicated judges. But it is also true that there are corrupt
judges. Our Judicial system is often manipulated by Corrupt Judges to produce whatever
decision or outcome they desired irrespective of the evidence and the law. From personal
experience, this is often done by these corrupt judges with impunity. Where those who
man the machinery of the judicial system on a daily basis as Judges and Justices on
behalf of the People of Illinois are not Honest and not Faithful to their Sworn duties, we
have a Moral, Ethical and a Legal duty to Expose them so that the People of Illinois
know what is going on and can ultimately rectify the situation if they choose to. Exposing
what is going on relieves one of the burden of a heavy Conscience. At least they cannot
say they were not told. I Lanre O. Amu have fulfilled my duty to God and Man in all
good Conscience, and that is all that matters.
The Illinois Judiciary Must Not Operate Like an Organized Lawless Cabal
11

For the betterment of Our Judicial System and Our Society, we must respectfully speak
the Truth, even the uncomfortable Truth. The First Amendment to the United States
Constitution Guarantees me the Rights to Freedom of Speech, Freedom of the Press,
Freedom to Petition the Government for Redress of Grievances, and Freedom to
Exercise my Religion. Article 1, Sections 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 of the Illinois Constitution
Guarantee me those Same Rights. The Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments to the
United States Constitution Guarantee me the Right to Equal Protection of the Laws.
The 13th Amendment to the United States Constitution Guarantees Me the Right Not to
Be a Willing Victim of Race and Ethnic Prejudice.

Honest Lawyers and Judges Must be the Unrestrained Daily Vanguards Against Corruption
12

There is a Moral and a Religious mandate to Expose corrupt judges and to be


unapologetic about it in light of the harm caused by Judicial Corruption: Whoever says to
the wicked,You are innocent. will be CURSED by peoples and abhorred by nations,
but those who rebuke the wicked will have delight, and a good blessing will be upon
them. Proverbs 24:24-25. Take No Part in the Unfruitful Works of Darkness, but Instead
Expose Them. For it is a Shame To even Speak of the Things that they Do in Secret.
Ephesians 5:11-12.

The notion that a person inspired to make positive contribution to Our Society went to
law school, gets a law degree and gets a law license only to implicitly concede to
limitations on his ability to speak or write concerning the objective truth about what he
sees in Our Society is foreign to any concept of freedom and justice. The real motivation
for this limitation is to perpetuate the status quo. Under that logic, societal injustice can
never be confronted head on. And according to you, the licensed lawyer cannot even talk
or write about it. After all, the determination of what is false statement and what is not

false statement is exclusively yours to make as you like. Any embarrassing revelation is
automatically categorized by you as false statements to be punished by suspension of law
license.
14

What could I have written about the judges that is not true? What could I have written
that warrants a loss of my means of livelihood? If I made false statements arent the
judges themselves empowered to face me and to sanction me? Dont the judges have
recourse in civil court in the law of defamation? Cant the judges report me to ARDC?
Cant the judges participate in the ARDC process by testifying under Oath against me?
This consistent pattern of not recognizing the humanity of people that do not look like
you is inhuman. We have the right to challenge this. You have established a system that
impoverishes us and we cannot complain? Why dont you give me subpoena power so I
can subpoena the financial records of these people so you can see the correlation of
income vs education vs race so you can see how evil this system is and understand the
root of the problem and stop beating around the bush?

Lawyers Who Are Able to Decode Legalese Are Best Able to Expose Judicial Corruption
15

Suspending my law license because I complained about judicial corruption for the good
of Our Society is evil, it evinced a self preservation mind set. There is a conflict of
interest on the part of the Justices of the Illinois Supreme Court in this matter. An
attorney as an officer of the Court, has a right to Lawfully, Peacefully, and Respectfully
Confront those who abuse Government Power to foster a sinister agenda aimed at
destroying a black lawyer and enslaving folks of all races who have no connection in the
court system. This sinister form of Social Engineering aimed at enslaving the vulnerable
of all races in Our Society is unnatural and evil.

16

In a Fair and Just Society, the Justice Department, the United States Attorney, the Illinois
State Attorneys, the Illinois Attorney General, the Executive branches of our
governments, the Legislative branches of our governments, and all good people of
Conscience will support me in my struggle in getting you to vacate your Order and
reinstate my law licence immediately because: 1) an attorney has a Moral, Ethical and
Legal duty to write a complaint about judicial corruption when he observes it because
Judicial Corruption causes serious damage in Our Society. (If an attorney sees something,
he must be able to say something without the fear of retaliation and losing his law
license); 2) I have a Religious Obligation to report judicial corruption when I observe it
given its destructive impact on Our Society. Take No Part in the Unfruitful Works of
Darkness, but Instead Expose Them7. Ephesians 5:11; 3) Your decision imposes a code
of silence on attorneys vis-a-vis their duty to report judicial corruption; 4) an attorneys
loyalty ultimately is to the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the

State of Illinois and not to an errant judge or justice; 5) Your finding that I made false
statements is an absurd pretext with no (Zero) evidentiary basis; 6) You are guilty of
obstruction of justice and abuse of power for self preservation purpose when you quashed
the Subpoenas I issued to the 213(f)(1) and 213(f)(2) witnesses, judges and lawyers,
involved in the judicial corruption to testify under Oath. Judges and lawyers involved
have testified in similar cases before the ARDC. Why not Amus case?8; 7) The ARDC
proceedings against me were shams-no human being testified my statements are false; 8)
No judge filed a complaint against me that I made false statements concerning him or
her; 9) If for the sake of argument, an attorney made false statements concerning the
integrity of a judge, the judge has recourse in the power to sanction the attorney; to hold
the attorney in contempt; to file a complaint with the ARDC; and/or bring a lawsuit for
defamation in civil court-none of these has ever happened to me in this case. I have never
made false statements to justify being sanctioned or held in contempt of court by the
judges themselves; 10) In ARDC cases involving similarly situated White attorneys
charged with making false statements concerning the integrity of a judge, the judge or
someone with personal knowledge of the alleged falsity of the statement made files a
complaint against the attorney with the ARDC, the judge and the opposing attorneys
{213(f)(1) and 213(f)(2) witnesses} usually testify at the ARDC hearing (Please see
ARDC Hearing in In re John Dore 2009 P 0122; In re Brian Sides 2011 PR 00144),
not so in my case. No one filed a complaint against me. No one with personal knowledge
has testified I made a false statement concerning any judge. So how did you arrive at the
absurd finding that I made false statements and then use that as the pretext to suspend my
law license for 3 years?; 11) your decision violates my Right to Equal Protection of the
Laws, and my Right not to be subjected to Kangaroo ARDC Proceedings; 12) Your

The given rationale for quashing the subpoenas is that a judge may not be asked to
testify as to his or her mental impressions or processes in reaching a judicial decision.
Questioning a judge about the process by which a decision has been reached would undermine
the judicial process-so they said. I beg to differ. Why should mental processes immunity be a
refuge for a judge decreeing 2 + 2 to be anything but 4 on a case? In addition, there are questions
relevant to judicial corruption at issue independent of inquiry into mental processes. For example
Judge Lynn Egans presiding over the case in which her brothers law firm was the defense as
outlined in this letter. What was the reason for quashing the subpoenas issued to the lawyers?
Where is the immunity or privilege for that? In cases where these judges and lawyers felt they
could not be Exposed, they have testified under Oath at the ARDC. See In re John N. Dore
2009 P 0122; In re Brian Sides 2011 PR 00144. The same judge(s) that now hide under
immunity has testified under Oath in similar case(s) where there is no threat of Exposure. It=s a
sham. It means a judge can engage in corruption without challenge. The judge gets to select
which accusation of corruption he or she will opt to testify under Oath concerning. Do we
need to wonder any more why these judges moved to quash Amu=s subpoenas and refused to
testify at Amu=s ARDC trial? Commonsense should not be surrendered anywhere including at
the ARDC and at the Illinois Supreme Court. The accused judge and lawyers get to opt or
select which subpoena to honor and which to appeal to the Illinois Supreme Court to quash?

act Faithfully, Honestly, Transparently, and with Integrity in the discharge of the duties

of all of the People of Illinois concerning their right to have a corruption free judiciary.
Your Decision Must Provoke a Crisis of Conscience in the Illinois Supreme Court
17

Your Order of May 16, 2014 confirms that an attorney who exposes judicial corruption in
Illinois, where a connected judge and/or connected attorney is involved, is not protected
from retaliation by you. ARDC will simply set up a sham hearing to conclude without
evidence that the attorney made false statements concerning the integrity of the
connected judge. You the Illinois Supreme Court Justices will simply rubber stamp the
ARDC conclusion and suspend or disbar the attorney. This is an act of self-preservation
and is contrary to what is in the best interest of Our Society. License suspension or
disbarment is a terrible price to pay for belling the cat. It sends a strong message as to
who controls attorneys, and imposes a code of silence on attorneys. Under this
arrangement, corruption is unchecked and no one is protecting the Publics Interest in
having an Honest, Transparent, and Accountable Judicial System and Court System. I
suggest that the legal profession and the judicial profession should act as checks and
balances to one another. There is a need for reform to curb this flagrant abuse of
government power.

18

As a Christian, your decision infringes on my ability to freely exercise the dictate of my


religion as guaranteed to me by the First Amendment of the United States Constitution
and Article 1 of the Illinois Constitution. You suspended my law license under false
pretenses in a way that prevents the exercise of my Moral obligation and duty to make
complaints when I observe judicial corruption given the harm it causes to Our Society.
Ephesians 5:11-12. When I obey the mandate of my religion, you turn around and
accuses me of making false statements without evidence i.e., defame me that I am
breaking Gods Commandments: Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy
neighbor. Exod 20: 16. There are six things which the Lord hates, seven which are an
abomination to Him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a
heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who
breathes out lies, and a man who sows discord among brothers. Proverbs 6:16 I can
conceive of few more serious accusations that can be brought against me WITHOUT
EVIDENCE in this matter. In making this decision you are uttering blasphemy and
showing a lack of reverence for God who warns you: not to pervert justice Leviticus
19:15; not to bear false witness Exodus 20:16; not to devise wicked plans Proverbs 6:16;

not to engage in evil. Proverbs 6:16; not to be a false witness who breathes out lies
Proverbs 6:16. For all these perversions you and your family stand to face the wrath of
God if you do not revisit this matter and think straight. A court that convicts the innocent
and acquits the guilty through false pretenses perverts Justice. I expect Justices of the
Illinois Supreme Court to be principled persons of Integrity and High Moral Convictions.
With all due respect, your decision in this case, rather than dispel any notion of judicial
corruption, only confirms judicial corruption. It shows you do not bother to read the
briefs filed in your court, you care less what the facts are, you care less whether there is
evidence to sustain the charges, you are recalcitrant in your ways and will decide matters
in any manner that suits your fancy without regard for the facts, the evidence and the law
you must abide by. Only a corrupt judiciary will falsely accuse an innocent lawyer of
making false statements concerning the integrity of a judge WITHOUT EVIDENCE and
then suspend the innocent lawyer from the practice of law for 3 years. Your action
effectively sweeps ARDC corruption succinctly articulated in three separate briefs I filed
before you under the rug.
19

Apparently, just as the ARDC ignored my unchallenged testimony in their Kangaroo


proceedings, you also ignored my three prior briefs, any of which informed you
succinctly why my law license should not have been suspended under the circumstances
of this case. With all due respect, Consistent with the Oath of your office, you have no
right to ignore my written briefs explaining to you my side of the issue. You have no
right to deny me a fair hearing in this matter. I have a fundamental right to a fair hearing,
so far you have denied and continue to deny me a fair hearing in this matter. Racism and
Ethnic Prejudice Have No Place on the Illinois Supreme Court. You Cannot Gang Up,
Endorse Kangaroo ARDC Proceedings, to Deny Me My Human Rights and My Civil
Rights Just Because I Am Not One of Your Kind and I Have Dared to Expose Corruption
Within Your Ranks. If You Will Not Allow Yourselves or Your Family Members to Be
Enslaved, Then You Have No Moral, Ethical or Legal Right to Enslave Another Person.
Judicial Corruption Destroys Society, an Attorney Is Duty Bound on Oath to Report it
When He Observes Judicial Corruption-that Is What I Did. You Are Bound on Oath
Never to Cover up Judicial Corruption among Your Ranks, but That Is What You Are
Doing by this Decision. You Are Retaliating Against an Attorney That Filed
LEGITIMATE Complaints Exposing Corruption Within Your Ranks by Summarily
Suspending Him from the Practice of Law for 3 Years. The Message You Are Sending to
All Attorneys by this Decision Is Loud and Clear - Expose Our Judicial Corruption at
Your Own Risk! Your Decision in My Case is for Want of a Better Word, Absurd. It

Reason, Conscience and Is a Brazen Betrayal of Your Oath of Office, Exposing the True
Caliber of Those Sitting in the Highest Court in Illinois. I Stand My Ground in this
Matter. I Stand up for My Rights And Demand That You Respect My Human Rights and
My Civil Rights as You Were Sworn on Oath Before God and Man to Do or Face the
Wrath of God as it must Descend upon You and Your Families. You Suspended My Law

Ethnic Cleansing Is Illegal and Criminal. It Is a Crime Against Humanity. If You Cannot

Our Society is filled with paradoxes. The very same mens rea or scienter (knowledge of
wrong doing) for which you send criminals to prison are being exhibited by you Justices
in this case in light of the fact that you ignored three separate briefs I filed informing you
of the true facts and ARDC corruption in this case, yet, no one is prosecuting you for
perversion of Justice. You are still getting your salaries while you ganged up to destroy
the 16 year legal practice and career of an innocent attorney for doing his civic duty for
the betterment of Our Society consistent with the Oath he took as an office of the Court.
It is really sad. So, some group in society get to go to prison for wrongdoing while some
sit on the Illinois Supreme Court while engaged in similar wrongdoing? You are no better
in real terms than those whom you convict and send to jail in droves. Its the same mens
rea. An apology to these people is in order. Many of them after all were born without
opportunities. You however have all of the opportunities they did not have, but are
engaged in the same thing you punish them for.

As an African Immigrant, a Yoruba, the most concise statement that I can find that
succinctly captures the absurdity of the Illinois Supreme Courts decision in this case is
in a Yoruba (African) Proverb which states,. . . I tt ml, ole mlko . . . Best
translated into English as,. . . a farmers failure to timely apprehend the thief who
encroached on his farm will end up being apprehended as a thief by the thief. . . Here
we see the same thing: a lawyer who fails or who is unable to timely apprehend a
corrupt judge will soon be apprehended by the corrupt judge(s) as a corrupt lawyer.
(turning the table as a coverup). This shows the need for reform in lawyer disciplinary
matters. This is further summarized in Yoruba language in one word as, Jbt
meaning Fraud. In one word, this is what the Illinois Supreme Courts decision in this
case is: FRAUD!. A square deal in court demands that 2 + 2 must equal 4 anywhere,
everywhere, ARDC and Illinois Supreme Court inclusive! The ARDC or the Illinois
Supreme Court has no Moral Authority to issue decisions or decrees that essentially
states that 2 + 2 equal 3, 5 or anything else but 4-such a ruling is Corrupt. A corrupt
judiciary will scheme to turn the table and discredit an attorney who blows the whistle on

judicial corruption, and accuse the lawyer of making false statements-imposing severe
punishments and implicitly sending a stern message to other attorneys to think twice. The
system to police judicial corruption in Illinois must be reformed. The ARDC is a part of
the corruption problem. The Judicial Inquiry Board is a toothless bull dog that essentially
throws most of the judicial corruption complaints into the waste paper basket. We must
not wait until the Feds, the FBI and the United States Attorneys decide to wake up and
intervene in the atrocities perpetrated on defenseless unconnected everyday people in Our
Society. Those who see the danger to Our Society and stand on Principle are being
crushed with impunity by the corrupt use of government power by miscreants. Where is
law enforcement in the midst of judicial lawlessness? Who will judge the lawless judges?
When was the last time there was housecleaning in the courts? The Illinois Judicial
Corruption scandal of 1969 that ensnared even Illinois Supreme Court Justices who had
to resign from office was over 44 years ago. Operation Greylord in which judges went to
jail for judicial corruption was over 20 years ago. Operation Gambat Court Scandal in
which a judge went to jail and another judge committed suicide when the law closed in
on him, was over 20 years ago. Can we conceive of what our society will look like if the
Criminal courts only opened the courtroom doors to convict anyone once in 20 years?
How many innocent victims of crimes would have been buried alive without
consequences? The notion that the judiciary is filled with nobles who can self regulate
and also regulate lawyers able to observe their corruption is a flawed concept that must
be reformed for the judiciary to improve its record on corruption.
22

Its humiliating to me for you to by fiat find that I made false statements against anyone.
It is also a personal insult. Your title as Justice of the Illinois Supreme Court does not
give you the authority to make such reckless conjecture. You will not agree for you or
your children to be judged by the same standard you are judging me. Please be reminded
that there is nothing in people voting for you to occupy the public office of the Justice of
the Illinois Supreme Court that confers superior Knowledge, Education, Intellect, Morals,
Standards, Ethics on you compared to me. Nothing in your education or knowledge base
empowers you to discern whether or not my sworn statements are true or false when you
are not a witness to the event I wrote about. You are not my teacher, and I am not your
student. You are a professional. I am a professional. You are no more educated than I in
these United States under any measure or standard. There are due processes of law
known by men worldwide in which we investigate matters and transparently, fairly,
honestly and with integrity get to the bottom of controversies and expose lies. You have
skipped all of that and imposed a Kangaroo proceeding. You surmise by virtue of your
title as Justice that I made false statements what an insult! None of you is on the
Illinois Supreme Court because of superior Intellect or superior Education or knowledge
base to Lanre O. Amu or because of higher Moral or Ethical Standard to Lanre O. Amu.
You are on the Illinois Supreme Court as a Justice simply because you contested election
for the position and the People of Illinois voted you into the position. Period. People
voting for you into office in an of itself does not confer Integrity, Morals or Ethics. Just
to be clear, more important than my education or your education is the need for Honesty,
Righteousness, and Integrity in the discharge of Sworn duties by you and I. I have kept

my end of that bargain but unfortunately you have NOT kept your end of that bargain.
Its a slap in the face and an insult for you to gang together, use and abuse the weight of
your office, and mail clearly absurd decisions to me from behind closed fortified
chambers just because I am not one of your kind and because you are in the position to
do that with impunity. That is racism and ethnic prejudice of the highest order under the
color of government title and position. This form of social engineering is evil,
disgraceful, and reprehensible mindful that you are using the authority of the government
to cynically implement an illegal and immoral objective no different from Adolph Hitler
did in Nazi Germany. Your Might does not Make you Right. I am created by God and I
have the fundamental human right to make a living on Gods Earth. You have no Moral,
Ethical or Legal authority as a Justice of the Illinois Supreme Court to infringe on my
Human and Civil rights as a Human Being made by God on this Earth unless you can
articulate publicly and show the World the evidence to justify such action. If you claim I
made false statements, then you have a Moral, Ethical, and Legal OBLIGATION to show
the entire World how you arrived at such finding. You have failed to do that to date. You
have shown by your conduct that you are a respecter of persons, title or position. Please
note that I have a God who is a just Judge. My God is no respecter of persons, titles or
position. According to the 13th Amendment, Slavery has ended in America. Corrupt
practices and wicked schemes under the color of title or position by those in authority
designed to circumvent the laws in the books to the effect that slavery has ended and we
have equal rights is evil and must be resisted by all. The aim of such practices is to
perpetuate the attributes of slavery under another guise. He who will not agree for him
and his children to be enslaved has no Moral Authority to enslave another or to erect
schemes that essentially effectuates the enslavement of another. Each and everyone of
you is a Justice of the Illinois Supreme Court simply because you contested for that
position and people voted you in. Your being a Justice of the Illinois Supreme Court does
not make you more educated than I, nor does it confer superior Intellect, superior Moral
values or Ethical standard. No! Nothing in that voting exercise enables you to credibly
surmise that I made false statements. You certainly have not explained to the world how
you arrived at the conclusion that my statements are false by clear and convincing
evidence. I have asked your agents at the ARDC Jerome Larkin et. al the same question
on how they arrived at the conclusion that my statements are false by clear and
convincing evidence in this case. I did not get a response. I need a public response or you
reinstate my law license immediately.

hindsight now appears to be mere double speak geared toward winning the peoples votes
to get on the Illinois Supreme Court:I represent working families as their lawyer,,
People want Courts that dont favor the rich and the politically connected. They want
Judges who have commonsense and a commitment to fairness . . . -Thomas L.
Kilbride. With all due respect, an authentic man should be a man of his Words. The
ruling in my case is not consistent with Justice Kilbrides words. Apparently, once Mr.
Kilbride won the votes to be on the Illinois Supreme Court, he reneged on his words, and
joined the club. Now a commitment to fairness is not a priority to him; Commonsense
can now be suspended by him on the Illinois Supreme Court; Courts can now favor
corrupt judges and the connected attorneys; briefs can now be ignored. The gap between
our pronouncements and our conduct is a true measure of our Integrity or lack thereof as
human beings, not title or position. You are a justice not because of superior intellect or
higher moral values. No!. You are a justice simply because you chose to contest election
for the position and the people voted you in. Nothing in that voting exercise enables you
Thomas Kilbride to credibly surmise that another lawyer, Lanre O. Amu, no less
qualified, no less Moral, no less Ethical, and no less Educated than you made true or false
statements concerning matters you have no personal knowledge of. You simply believe
because you are White you can impose it on someone who is not White. That is Illegal in
America the land of all Immigrants, you and I inclusive.
25

I have practiced law as a Black lawyer in the Quad Cities where Justice Kilbride
practiced law before he became a Justice of the Illinois Supreme Court (including Rock
Island County). The Quad Cities has a significant black population. In over 5 years of my
legal practice in the Rock Island Courthouse, I have only seen at most two black lawyers
in the Rock Island Courthouse. Blacks are that under represented. Justice Kilbride did not
think twice about voting to remove a Black lawyer that serves the undeserved Black
population in Rock Island based on false accusations. How is that Socially Responsible?
Its very easy to turn a blind eye to social issues and make rash decisions just because the
ramifications have no effect on himself, his own children, his family and his own White
community. Yet you parade yourself around as the Justice of all of Illinois while
simultaneously decreeing ethnic cleansing under false pretenses solely because you have
the power to do that with impunity. This is the height of social irresponsibility.

26

Here is the danger: Today it is Lanre O. Amu, it could anyone else tomorrow. Virtually
anyone and everyone can be railroaded and found guilty of making false statements by
ARDC and the Illinois Supreme Court if they dispense with burdensome evidentiary
requirement and the burden of proof MANDATED by the due process right to a fair
hearing. In resent memory, it happened in Nazi Germany. Virtually anything can happen

ARDCs Propaganda in Kangaroo Proceedings to Take Amus Law License


ARDCs Whitewash states in part:
His open letter followed an appeals panel ruling that upheld Judge Lynn
Egans decision vacating a default judgment against his client in a personal
injury case against a food store. The judge, according to the ARDC, had vacated
the judgment after the store owners had argued that notice of the legal action had
not been properly served.
Amu, however, asserted that Judge Egan and lawyers for the store had fixed
the case and that the proceedings were a sham. As alleged proof, Amu
claimed that the judges brother worked at a law firm hired by the stores
insurance company to defend it against the suit.
Amus Concise Response:

28

The above two paragraphs of ARDCs findings are


distortions of the true facts, whitewash and lies. Mind
you, this is the ARDC claiming Amu is the one making
false statements, and getting Amus law license suspended
for three years on that basis. How ironic? Now read the
true undisputed irrefutable proved and again
provable facts which ARDC ignored below:

The Truth that ARDC is hiding (Irrefutable Evidence is there Even Tomorrow):
ARDC in its charade, ignored the chronology of events, took matters out of
context and focused on Amus complaint while covering up the wrongdoing that
led to Amus LEGITIMATE complaint to begin with. A fair and impartial arbiter
will not cover up the initial wrong while focusing on another persons reaction to
a prior wrong! In the Face of Harassment and Misrepresentations, Amu has a
Right to post his side of the issue anywhere including on his website-that is legal
under the First Amendment Freedom of Speech. Moreover, Amus open letter is a
public document filed in Court just as the judicially corrupt ruling secured by
fraud is a public document available on the web. Has Judge Lynn Egan denied
under Oath that any statements I made is false? No! Why did Judge Lynn Egan
refuse to honor my subpoena to testify under Oath on whether or not she acted
corruptly in my case? Why did the Illinois Supreme Court quash my subpoena to
Judge Lynn Egan and the defense attorneys to testify under Oath? What standing
does ARDC have to second guess my statements as a lawyer on matters in which
the ARDC has no personal knowledge? Apparently, none of the ARDC attorneys
have any commitment to fairness, Transparency, and Integrity. What is the basis
of this humiliation and ridicule concerning my unchallenged statements? I stand
by what I wrote. I repeat: Judge Lynn Egan and the lawyers for the store had
FIXED the case. The entire proceedings was corrupted and amounted to a sham.

ARDCs claim that as proof, Amu claimed that the judges brother worked at a
law firm hired by the stores insurance company to defend it against the suit is a
distortion. More correctly: Amu alleged that Judge Lynn Egan colluded with the
defense law firm to FIX the case well before Amus private investigation revealed
about two and half years after Judge Lynn Egans corrupt ruling that: an Equity
partner of the defense law firm Pretzel & Stouffer, Chartered, was Matthew Egan,
Judge Egans brother. Is that just a coincidence? Lynn Egan was brazen enough
not to come clean and disclose this conflict of interest even in face of Amus
protest of corrupt ruling while blinded by the inherent conflict? Is it not dishonest
for ARDC to propagate the distortion stated above in this section? The defense
attorney was aware of the conflict, Judge Lynn Egan was aware of the conflict,
they kept Amu and his client in the dark during 9 months of contentious litigation
before Judge Lynn Egan. In those 9 months, the defense attorneys were paid;
judge Egan was paid; Amu and his client were unpaid but compelled to be
parading the court going through the motions and chasing shadows at $0 per
hour for 9 months. Despite Amus protest of corrupt ruling, they still kept the
Conflict of Interest a secret until exposed two and half years later? Why should I
lose my law license for that? What have I written that is not true? What have I
written that is not in the Public Interest? Who has denied my statements
concerning corruption? Where is the false statement? The Illinois Supreme Court
Justices cannot ignore these serious issues! You must respect our Rights as
Human Beings entitled to Utmost Fairness in the Peoples Courts! Your being
elected as Justice of the Illinois Supreme Court gives you no Moral, Ethical or
Legal Right to trample on other peoples Human Rights.

Consequences of Judicial Corruption


Judicial Corruption is a matter of Public Concern and should be an issue of concern to
everyone in Illinois. Judicial Corruption Reimposes a New form of Slavery on a lot of
People in Illinois Even When the Law in the Books States That Everyone Is Free and
Slavery Has Ended; Judicial Corruption Perpetuates Artificial Constructs in Virtually
Every Area of life in Our Society, including: the Prisons, the Boardrooms, the
Professions, the Homeless, the Jobless, etc.; Judicial Corruption Enriches its Perpetrators
and Impoverishes its Victims (Income Inequality); it imposes a Corruption tax on all of
the Peoples of Illinois whether they know it or not; it Destroys Lives; it Frustrates
Governments Sincere Desire and Obligation to Alleviate Poverty and Narrow the Gap
Between the Poor and the Rich; it contributes to the Under Representation of segments of
Our Society in the Affluent Circles; it Destroys Businesses, it can Send the Innocent to
prison; it causes bankruptcies; it causes Misery; it contributes to Crimes; contributes to
Family Breakdowns; Divorces; Ruins Careers; and Enthrones Mediocrity.

Absurdity Tutorial
During the Window Dressing Session at the Scapegoating Department
*Courtesy of the Foxes Dutifully Guarding the Hen House
31

There is an inherent Conflict of Interest in the Illinois Supreme Court justices sitting in
judgment of a lawyer who exposed judicial corruption within their rank. The Illinois
Supreme Court Justices cannot be fair and impartial in this case due to their own need for
self preservation and window dressing. In this case, they have simply closed ranks with
the accused judges, and advanced an absurd pretext to cover up the corruption within
their ranks. This is not in Our Societys best interest.

32

In light of the orders from the Illinois Supreme Court on August 6, 2013, and May 16,
2014 in this case, and having practiced as an attorney in virtually every departments of
the Illinois Court system for over 15 years, I am convinced that the Illinois Supreme
Court Justices are unable to credibly adjudicate complaints of judicial corruption among
their ranks due to the inherent Conflict of Interest. There is a need to clean up the Illinois
Courts because often the Court system is not acting in the best interests of all of the
Peoples of Illinois. The Court is often serving a narrower agenda. There is a tendency
towards self preservation on the part of some of these judges, and this contributes to a
lack of transparency and a lack of accountability. For example here, the two orders
entered by the Illinois Supreme Court Justices suspending my law license contain no

M.R.26545

written opinion explaining the logic behind their conduct. The answer? There is no
logical reason behind the Illinois Supreme Courts orders. In three separate briefs, the
Justices intentionally turned blind eyes to evidence that informed any fair and
impartial arbiter that they cannot suspend Amus law license under these
circumstances. There is a corrupt judicial cabal at work to destroy an attorney who dares
expose judicial corruption. So we see that the interest of the lawyer who altruistically
exposes judicial corruption for the betterment of Our Society is in direct Conflict with the
interest of the Illinois Supreme Court Justices who want such embarrassing exposures
suppressed as it is contrary to their window dressing agenda.
33

I personally observed the corruption I complained about and my observations have not
been contradicted. Just to be clear, I am not saying that all judges in Our Courts are
corrupt. I am simply saying that some judges that I have personally appeared before and
practiced law before are corrupt, some are even brazenly [emphasis added] Corrupt. I
Can Provide Evidence of this Corruption at a Videotaped Hearing Even Tomorrow.
My determination in this regard is objective. It has nothing whatsoever to do with my
subjective feeling on whether I win or lose, receive favorable or unfavorable ruling from
any judge on a case. I never pander to any judge to win any case because I strongly
believe cases should be won or lost based on the evidence and the law. Both sides on a
case should honestly and forthrightly inform the judge so he or she can make the right
decision objectively. The People of Illinois are entitled to a judiciary that is Transparent,
Accountable and at least corruption policing if not totally corruption free.

34

Attorneys who are in the courtrooms everyday are in the best position to know what is
going on in those courtrooms. In over 15 years of practice in our courtrooms, I have
never seen an Illinois Supreme Court Justice or the ARDC inside the trial courtrooms I
practice in-they are not in the courtroom trenches to know first hand what is going on
there. Attorneys who have first hand experience of the courtrooms occurrences are thus
best positioned to police judicial corruption therein because: they are trained in legalese,
they can decode legalese unlike the uninitiated public not trained in the nuances of the
law, they are in the courtrooms virtually on a daily basis, and they can see what an
individual with a single case in court cannot easily see or know. The system of regulation
of lawyers should be reformed to remove lawyer regulation away from the ambit of the
judiciary - i.e., the Illinois Supreme Court Justices via ARDC. There should be complete
independence in the two professions vis-a-vis the operation of Our Court system. If
attorneys cannot effectuate reform by speaking out without risking their law licenses and
livelihood, then there is no incentive to expose judicial corruption and improve the
system of Administration of Justice in Illinois Courts. Without lawyers input, the Judges
are thus left to police their own corruption-but experience has shown that the judges are
unable to police their own corruption-they simply cover it up; the lawyers in the best
position to see corruption and expose it cannot due to the risk of suspension or
disbarment; the Feds who have the responsibility and authority to prosecute judicial
corruption are neither in the courtrooms at all times nor involved in the nuances of any
case to know what is happening; the media will not expose judicial corruption of the

connected judges and lawyers for fear of reprisal; so no one is policing judicial
corruption. Judicial Corruption is not effectively addressed in the appellate review
process. Experience has shown that it is simply excused and covered up. Judicial
corruption in Illinois is effectively a closed System. Judicial Corruption Is the 500
Pound Gorilla in the Room Which Everyone Ignores. Who Will Bell the Cat? The
connected Judges will in fact find ways to cover things up. The Illinois Supreme Court
Justices have just done that in this case by absurdly decreeing without evidence that Amu
made false statements concerning the integrity of the judges (by clear and convincing
evidence!) and suspending his law license for 3 years. There is a need for reform on who
regulates lawyers who speak up concerning judicial corruption. The current system puts
the fate of the lawyer who exposes judicial corruption for the good of Our Society in the
very hands of the judiciary whose corruption he exposes. There is something inherently
wrong with that picture. With respect to our courts, lawyers can keep judges in line just
as judges can keep lawyers in line for the best interest of the courts and the People of
Illinois. As such, the regulation of lawyers should not be in the hands of the judiciary or
any agency controlled by the judiciary. The judicial profession should not be regulating
the legal profession if there is to be checks and balances in policing judicial corruption in
Illinois courts.
35

Corrupt Judges acting in tandem with corrupt lawyers have a way of covering corruption
within layers of thick briefs, legal opinions, and transcripts knowing that no one in the
public will sacrifice the time to dig through things to unearth their corruption. They know
that finding their corruption in layers of thick briefs, legal jargons, transcripts and
dubious written opinions is akin to a search for the needle in a haystack. For the poor
who cannot afford to have court reporters, this makes things even worse as there will be
no record. The corruption will be virtually impossible to uncover unless an insider
attorney blows the whistle and provides the lead. But then the attorney risks losing his
law license and livelihood for making false statements concerning the integrity of a
judge. Remember there is an almost irrefutable presumption that the judge is not corrupt
to begin with. So unless the lawyer has a videotaped confession from the corrupt judge,
the lawyers narration of the corruption will simply be brazenly swept under the rug by
the ARDC, and the Judicial Inquiry Board (JIB) under the disguised label that this is
the complaint of a disgruntled losing party. How circular and ridiculous?

There Was No Justification for the Immediate


Suspension of My Law License by the Illinois Supreme Court
On August 6, 2013, I was waiting for a Chicago bound bus at the Davenport, Iowa
Trailway Bus station after attending Court proceedings on behalf of some clients in the
Quad Cities when I received a telephone call from a Clerk of the Illinois Supreme Court.
The Clerk of the Illinois Supreme Court told me that an Order was entered on that date by
the Justices of the Illinois Supreme Court suspending me from the practice of law
effective immediately. That I can no longer practice law from that very minute. On that
date, as a solo attorney in private practice for 16 years, I had over 200 active clients that I

was representing. What could I have done to warrant this level of wickedness and
callousness?
37

The charges are that I made false statements in written complaints I filed concerning four
judges over a 9 year period (2002-2011) and in 16 years of legal practice. The Illinois
Supreme Court Justices simply ignored my briefs detailing why my law license should
not be suspended. What justifies the immediate suspension of my law license? What have
I written that I must be suspended over? And suspended immediately by telephone call
from the Illinois Supreme Court? Is suspension the least obstructive way of resolving
whatever the issue is? A pretext was intentionally conjured to take my law license
immediately. In essence, I was framed by the ARDC. I did not make any false statements.
The evidence is there even tomorrow. Three separate briefs that I have filed in the Illinois
Supreme Court clearly articulating and proving why my law license should not be
suspended were simply ignored by the Justices of the Illinois Supreme Court without
affording me any opportunity of a hearing. The intent of the August 6, 2013 decision of
the Illinois Supreme Court is to destroy my practice, plunge me into financial melt down
and wipe me off the face of the Earth. There is nothing justifying my suspension if the
Illinois Supreme Court Justices took the time to read any of my written briefs wherein I
articulated that I am the victim of corrupt orchestrations. There is nothing justifying an
immediate suspension of my law license because I have done nothing wrong.
Nonetheless, the Illinois Supreme Court Justices chose to ignore my briefs and even
confirmed on May 16, 2014 that I should now be suspended from the practice of law for
3 years for making false statements in writing against the integrity of 4 judges over a 9
year period. Please be mindful that in those 9 years, I have appeared before no less than
200 judges.

38

As at today, no one has ever denied any of the written complaints I made. So, how did the
Illinois Supreme Court or the ARDC conjure that my complaints narrating what
happened in courtrooms where they were not present was false when no witness has
testified they are false? Why did ARDC bring a disciplinary complaint against me when
no one filed a complaint with the ARDC that I made false statements? If not racism and
ethnic prejudice, why would the ARDC file formal charges against me without first
calling me for a face to face discussion about my written statements and seek a resolution
of my complaints prior to filing formal charges? When in defending my Honor and
Integrity against the false charges ARDC brought, I subpoenaed the judges and lawyers,
213(f)(1) and 213(f)(2) witnesses to the occurrences, why did the judges and lawyers
involved refuse to participate in the ARDC proceeding and confront me under Oath that
my statements are false? Why did the judges and lawyers who are 213(f)(1) and 213(f)(2)
witnesses to the charges that ARDC has leveled against me move to quash my
subpoenas? Why did the Justices of the Illinois Supreme Court quash my subpoenas to
compel sworn statements from the judges and lawyers who are 213(f)(1) and 213(f)(2)
witnesses to matters I complained about? Is this not racism and ethnic prejudice? After
all for White attorneys facing similar charges of attacking the integrity of judges, there is
a complaint filed at the ARDC by a complaining witness who is personally
22

knowledgeable about the matter; and then the 213(f)(1) and 213(f)(2) witnesses lawyers
and judges testify under Oath at the ARDC hearing; and then where the White attorney is
in fact found to have been guilty the punishment is only six months suspension, and there
is no immediate suspension of law license (see ARDC cases In re John Dore, 2009 P
0122; In re Brian Sides 2011 PR 00144); In my case, I am innocent and I am getting
immediate suspension, plus 3 years suspension, plus until further order of the court. Is
this not racism and ethnic prejudice? After curtailing my rights to Subpoena witnesses
and compel them to testify under Oath, why should the ARDC and the Illinois Supreme
Court then claim I made false statements in my written complaints despite my insistent
that my statements are true and correct.
39

How can the ARDC and the Illinois Supreme Court conspire to find that I made false
statements and suspend me from the practice of law immediately when no witness ever
testified I made a false statement? What justifies my immediate suspension? What
justifies the suspension of my law license in light of my articulation of my side of the
issue? Am I not a human being entitled to a fair and impartial hearing by a fair and
impartial judicial officer by law? Where is the Moral, Ethical or Legal authority for these
atrocities in light of the Oath taken by the Justices of the Illinois Supreme Court to
Honestly, Faithfully, and Transparently discharge the duties of public office? In light of
the harm that Corruption inflicts on Our Society, and an attorneys duty to report
corruption, where is the authority to suspend an attorney for writing a complaint about
the corruption he observed? Cutting to the chase, the Illinois Supreme Court should now
set up a 15-30 minute videotaped proceeding and give me the opportunity to appear and
tell the Seven Justices of the Illinois Supreme Court why my written sworn statements
are true and correct, why they have no basis for finding that I made false statements and
suspending my law license. Let the People of Illinois then watch the video and judge for
themselves who is Faithful to Sworn duties between Lanre O. Amu, the ARDC, and the
Justices of the Illinois Supreme Court concerning this matter. Commonsense must not be
suspended or surrendered anywhere, including in the Illinois Supreme Court. In our
Pluralistic Society, we are all human beings created by God, and we deserve to live. It
must be live and let live in Our Society. Those who occupy positions of power in
government have no Moral, Ethical or Legal right to abuse the power to the detriment of
those who are not in power or who do not look like them. It is barbaric to abuse
government power in this fashion.
Your Order Shows You Pay Lip Service to In God We Trust

In each of our courtrooms the emblem states,In God We Trust. With all due respect
those should not be mere empty slogans in the courtrooms. You must put meaning to
those words in your conduct. That same God says very clearly, These also are the
sayings of the wise: Partiality in judging is not good. He who says to the wicked,You
are innocent, will be cursed by peoples, and abhorred by nations; but those who rebuke
the wicked will have delight, and a good blessing will be upon them. Proverbs 24:23-25.

innocent and that I am guilty without evidence. An analogy would be the corruption
laced conviction of a falsely accused criminal defendant who is subsequently exonerated
through irrefutable DNA evidence. Having been exonerated by DNA evidence, then there
is a need to retrace the steps of the sham criminal proceedings to expose how the white
collar fraud could have been orchestrated to lead to the conviction of an innocent person.
This case of mine will now serve as an eye opener to you that I did not make any false
statements. I am indeed very sorry to inform your majesties that the presumption of no
corruption in the Illinois Judiciary as a farce. If you are still confused or there is a
dispute about anything then enable a 15 to 30 minute videotaped hearing (anybody else
can be present, including the media). I will expose the corruption I complained about
once again and in fact expose a couple other judicial corruption incidents I have
witnessed since the ARDC hearing in 2012. I now ask you to Honor your Oaths of
Judicial Office and Correct your error in this case, vacate my suspension and reinstate my
law license immediately. Consistent with the Oath a lawyer takes as an officer of the
court, a lawyers loyalty must be to the Constitution of the United States, the Constitution
of the State of Illinois, for the betterment of Our Society, and to the Glory of God, and
not loyalty to a corrupt judicial cabal. Your decision of May 16, 2014 has created a
conflict in a lawyers ability to fulfil his ultimate duty to Our Society, God, and Mankind.
A lawyers loyalty cannot be to an errant judge, errant Justice or errant ARDC. A similar
example is Nazi Germanys loyalty to an individual Adolph Hitler even when Hitler
himself was disloyal to God. There is a need for Soul Searching in this matter. The Public
Interest must be paramount and the Judiciary is not the exclusive vanguard of that Public
Interest.
41

A faithful judge will judge based on the Evidence. Who (out of the 213(f)(1) and
213(f)(2) witnesses) has stated that Amu made a false statement about anyone? Answer:
No one. What evidence did ARDC have that Amu made a false statement? Answer: No
evidence. How then is it fair to suspend a persons law license his means of livelihood?
Where is the fairness? None.

42

Your decision in a nutshell is this: Amu made false statements because the ARDC
Hearing Board says so, the ARDC Review Board says so, and the Illinois Supreme Court
affirms. Unfortunately, making judgment that a person made false statements because
some persons who are not witnesses to the occurrences said so does not comport with due
process. It is illogical and circular in reasoning. There must be evidence to support any
credible finding that Amu made false statements. ARDC Hearing Board, ARDC Review
Board, and the seven Illinois Supreme Court Justices are not 213(f)(1) or 213(f)(2)
witnesses to any of the occurrences narrated in Amus statements, and they have no
standing to conjure in Kangaroo proceedings that Amus unchallenged statements of the
occurrences are false. As Judges, they must be neutral and hear both sides of the
controversy before making any decision. In this case, Amu was present for trial, the other
side was a no show. So if not railroading, how do you find Amu guilty when the other
side with knowledge refuses to take the Oath to testify and be cross-examined? This is

reminiscent of the Dred Scott v. Sandford9case, and the movie to Kill a Mocking Bird in
which Justice is turned on its head to reach bizarre results.
9

In 1857, in the case Dred Scott v. Sandford, 60 U.S. 393 (1857), the United States
Supreme Court composed exclusively of white men ruled that black people of African descent
imported as slaves into the United States and continued to be held as slaves (and their
descendants, whether or not they were slaves) were not protected by the United States
Constitution and could never be Citizens of the United States. The United States Supreme Court
also held that the United States Congress (the House of Representatives and the Senate
combined) had no authority to prohibit slavery in federal territories and that, because slaves were
not United States Citizens, they could not sue in Court. (i.e., Africans have no access to the
Courts in America to secure basic rights to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. Yet European
Americans under various guises and pretexts can go to Africa, have access to its wealth and
resources, and are treated as human beings by Africans in Africa-treatment they institutionally
deny Africans here in America) Furthermore, the United States Supreme Court ruled that slaves,
as chattels or private property, could not be taken away from their white owners (masters)
without the due process of law. As at today, in my humble view, the plight of the African
Immigrants in our Courts (including the notorious sham jury trials that are reminiscent of the
movie To Kill a Mocking Bird) have fared in substance no better than in the Dred Scott days
some 157 years ago. While today Africans can in fact technically sue in courts in the United
States of America by paying the fees and have the Clerk of Court file their papers, appear in
court, etc., there are corrupt systems in place to deny justice and nullify those court filings in
many cases. While in the past these wrongs were open and legal. Now these wrongs are latent
and the government and some judges turn blind eyes to the violations. By then, it may be
virtually impossible for these people to relocate back to Africa. The real term implications of this
state of affairs for these new African Immigrants in the United States is devastating. But no one
is addressing this issue. The whole World should know what is now going on in America the
land of immigrants. The double standards, the deceptions, the contradictions, witchcraft,
wickedness, sharp practices, and all. There is a wide gap between the freedom America markets
or promises to African Immigrants and the freedom America actually delivers to African
Immigrants in America. A real question is raised whether America lures Africans into America
not to coexist as equal immigrants like immigrants from Europe, but as a permanent underclass
to be exploited in a new form of slavery. The sad part is that it takes decades before the true
picture of the African Immigrants situation in America dawns on the African Immigrant. This is
in fact an institutionalized means of Social Engineering in America. African Immigrants now
need to quickly learn that the statistics that show under representation of blacks in America in
the professions (e.g., law, medicine, engineering, the sciences, etc.) and over representation in
sports, entertainment, crime, and prisons are not by accident. They are by design. They are in
fact a direct result of complicated neo-slavery phenomenon which are: institutionalized
oppression and racism, access denial, no different from what Amu is complaining about here. In
one way or the other, corrupt judges are a part and parcel of those who engage in cynical Social
Engineering in our Society impacting on these unfortunate statistics. Under Neo-slavery, there
are no visible chains on the Blackmans legs and wrists, but there are invisible chains denying
the Blackman his rights and keeping him down in America just as during slavery.

Lanre O. Amus Solemn Charge to the Justices of the Illinois Supreme Court
43

Honorable Chief Justice Rita B. Garman, Justice Charles E. Freeman, Justice Robert
R. Thomas, Justice Thomas L. Kilbride, Justice Lloyd A. Karmeier, Justice Anne M.
Burke, and Justice Mary Jane Theis, each and everyone of you was Sworn on Solemn
Oath of Public Office to Faithfully, Honestly, and with Integrity discharge the duties of
the Office of Justice of the Illinois Supreme Court to the best of your abilities, so help
you God. It is on the Authority of that Solemn Oath that each of you took that I now
request that you reconsider this case. As a human being, you have the light of Conscience
within you and I believe you know the ramifications of violating Conscience. In this case
you suspended my law license on interim basis based on false accusations without
evidence of wrongdoing on my part. You have now confirmed that suspension without
any hearing, without any written opinion without any explanation of your reasoning in
light of the over 50 pages of briefs I filed exposing ARDCs orchestrations against me.
You cannot suspend a persons law license and means of livelihood without an
articulation of wrongdoing in face of denial of wrongdoing by the accused person. You
took an Oath to discharge the duties of your Office Faithfully, Honestly, Transparently
and with Integrity. I am one of the intended beneficiaries of the Solemn Oath you took to
assume that office. This unfair treatment of me by you cannot stand otherwise you have
to face God a Higher Judge concerning the inconsistencies between your Conduct and the
Solemn Oath you took to be Faithful, Honest, Transparent and act with Integrity upon
assumption of the office. A solemn Oath on Earth is also a Covenant Oath in the
Heavenly Court. By your Words you will be Justified, and by your Words you will be
Condemned. Matthew 12:17. If you think as Justices you can abuse your positions and
orchestrate lies to oppress me, then you are mistaken. God is a Higher Judge than you
and He is a God of recompense. Gods Word says whatsoever a person sows, s/he will
also reap. Galatians 6:7. Our God is no respecter of persons, titles or positions. Acts
10:34, and Romans 2:11. Those who use their position to oppress others or pervert
justice must ultimately meet with perversion of justice in their lives and those of their
children because what is good for the goose is good for the gander. It is appointed for
man to die once, and after that comes Judgment. Hebrews 9:27. On your day of
Judgment, there will be no pretense, no guile, and no manipulation before the Omniscient
God. When you meet face-to-face with your maker, I hope the anchor of your Soul will
hold up concerning your deeds on Gods Earth. Ultimately, we must entrust these matters
to God who judges justly.

A lawyer can act to protect his clients right to justice by confronting judicial corruption
even when it is unpopular to do so. That is no reason to take a lawyers law license. Of
what use is the lawyer to his client if the lawyer cannot hold the judge with the delegated
power Honest, Accountable and Transparent? No reasonable person on Gods Earth who
reads my briefs and ARDCs brief will not know that the ARDC hearings I was subjected
to were shams and abusive. The ARDC hearing officers at both the Hearing Board level
and the Review Board level and the ARDC attorneys were violating their Oaths of office
by orchestrating those sham hearings. In my written briefs before you, I debunked in

writing all false allegations ARDC made against me. A single word denied to over 50
pages of my brief leaves one with the impression that you simply ignored everything I
wrote and chose to rule as you subjectively want. In so doing you are denying me of my
fundamental right to a fair hearing before you. The very thing I have previously been
denied since the ARDC commenced its proceedings against me in 2011. This with all due
respect is not consistent with what is right and what comports with Honesty, Integrity and
Good Conscience. Each and every one of you was Sworn under Oath before God and
Man to uphold the law, to act Honestly, Truthfully, Transparency and with Integrity.
Fairness demands that you explain in a clearly written opinion your reasoning justifying
the suspension of my lawyer license. With all due respect, no one has the Moral, Legal or
Ethical right to suspend my law license under false pretenses and sham orchestrations at
the ARDC. My law license needs to be restored immediately I need to make a living to
support myself and my dependents. No one has established I made any false statements
about anything. I am being harassed unnecessarily, and provoked in hopes I will violate
the law. But I know better not to take the bait. I am law abiding. I am peace loving. God
be my witness. No human being ever testified that I lied about anything. So how on Earth
can you take my law license/livelihood just like that? On trumped up and false charges?
Why am I being treated differently from White attorneys facing the same charge? Why
this aberrant departure from established legal protocol and the dictates of the law books?
Given the implications of this development for African Immigrants, why should the
whole world not know about this real situation?
The Synopsis of Lanre O. Amus Alleged Conduct
45

I filed complaints about judicial corruption in pleadings or letters in four separate


instances in 16 years of legal practice10. I was accused by the ARDC of making false
about the integrity of four judges. There is no complaining witness stating that anything I
said is not true. Sham hearings were orchestrated against me at the ARDC in which no
single individual testified that anything I said is not true. I subpoenaed the judges and
lawyers involved to question each of them under Oath, they all moved to quash my
10

Judge Lynn Egan made corrupt rulings and presiding over a case where her brothers
(Matthew Egans) law firm is the defense law firm. 2) Judge Irwin Solganick who in less than 15
minutes of ever learning about the existence of a 4 year medical malpractice case made a
monumental ruling on a motion on the case without knowledge of the case and without even
reading the motion or briefs he was ruling on, when the judge who dutifully presided over the
case in those 4 years was available to entertain the motion. 3) Judge Francis Dolan who later
changed the corrupt ruling on reconsideration making the matter moot. 4) Judge Thomas Chiola
who was ruling in favor of Romanucci and Blandin, a case of corruption, and influence peddling.
Romanucci and Blandin boasts of settlements and verdicts of $250 Million (Yes!, $0.25 Billion
Dollars. Money talks before the corrupt judges!) in 15 years of practice as a small law firm. Amu
repeats, there is corruption in the Illinois Judiciary. I know as a matter of fact that some judges
are corrupt-I can establish it even tomorrow! I do not say that all judges are corrupt because I
have no evidence of that.

subpoenas, you the Supreme court complied with their requests and quashed my
subpoenas11. At the ARDC Hearing, I was the only witness and I stood by my written
complaints unchallenged. About six months later, I received a decision from the ARDC
Hearing Board recommending that I be suspended for three years for making false
statements against the judges. The mystery: how did they legally determine that my
statements are false by clear and convincing evidence when they are not witnesses?
Are the ARDC Hearing Officers more credible than I on this issue simply because they
were chosen to hear the case? Are the Illinois Supreme Court Justices more credible
than I on this matter simply because of their titles? Who says? Is that the legal
standard and legal protocol we follow? I should lose my law license for three years
under this standard? I appealed the recommendation to the Review Board. Any person
that plays the 20-25 minutes audiotape of the oral argument before the review board will
have no doubt that there is no case against me. Yet, a few weeks later the review board
affirmed the hearing board. You have simply summarily affirmed the same. This is
unjust, unfair, and cannot stand.

ARDCs Alleged Evidence Against Lanre O. Amu

46.1

A visit to the ARDC website for the Hearing Board decision, page 2, paragraph #3 lists
the totality of the evidence ARDC has against Lanre O. Amu in this entire matter as
follows:
The Totality of ARDCs Evidence Against Amu According to ARDC
1e) The Administrator called Respondent as an adverse witness. 2e) Additionally,
Administrator's Exhibits 1 through 9 were admitted into evidence. 3e) Respondent
testified on his own behalf and 4e) presented the character testimony from Three
Witnesses. (In simple English, the entire ARDC evidence is my testimony and my
written complaints-which I stand by. Nothing more)

46.2

According to the ARDC on its web site, the entirety of the evidence presented at the
ARDC hearing that resulted in my suspension from practice of law, and suspension for
three years are as detailed above in 1e), 2e), 3e), and 4e). Nothing more. There is no
disagreement on that. There is noting in all of the evidence presented at the ARDC
Hearings to suggest my statements are false.

46.3

Now let us analyze the evidence upon which Amu is being suspended from the practice
of law for three years: 1e) that is Amus sworn testimony maintaining that he did not
make any false statements; 2e) Exhibits 1 through 9 are Amus sworn pleadings and
writings-Amu affirmed the truth of what he wrote in Exhibits 1 through 9; 3e) that is

Amus sworn testimony narrating the circumstances under which he wrote Exhibits 1
through 9 and again maintaining that he did not make any false statements; 4e) are three
character witnesses Amu brought to the proceedings (two are Amus pastors and two are
lawyers) who vouched for the fact that they have known Amu for over a decade each and
they do not know him to make false statements. Evidence closed.
46.4

Given the evidence as outlined by the ARDC above and as agreed to by Amu, how is
ARDC able to conjure that Amu was lying? What will be the justification for suspending
anyones law license with this evidence or lack thereof? What is the basis of conjuring
that I am making false statements? Where is the false statement? False statement about
what?

47

Some Precedent for The Types of Atrocities Engaged in by the Illinois Supreme
Court Justices Show that Might does not Make Right! And that Even Justices are not
Beyond the Reach of a Just God. We All Reap What We Sow

47.1

King Ahab, Jezebel, Prophets of Baal, Naboth, & Prophet Elijah, 2 Kings 21 Example

Analogy:

In the days of Elijah, there were two worthless men who brought false charges
against Naboth so as to disposes him. However, in this case of Lanre O. Amu,
there is no complaining witness bringing any charges. There is no person
testifying against Amu at any Hearing. Yet, you have taken his means of
livelihood from him for speaking the irrefutable Truth that can still be established
tomorrow?

Jezebel:

Proclaim a fast and set Naboth at the head of the people. And set two worthless
men opposite him, and let them bring a charge against him, saying: You have
cursed God and the king. Then take him out and stone him to death. 1 Kings
21:9

Worthless men:

And the two worthless men brought a charge against Naboth in the
presence of the people. Saying,Naboth cursed God and the king. 1
Kings 21:13

Prophet Elijah:

Thus says the Lord,Have you killed and also taken possession? . . . In
the place where dogs licked up the blood of Naboth shall dogs lick up
your own blood. . .

Lord! 2 Samuel 7, 14.


Amu to Illinois Supreme Court:

King David schemed to destroy Uriah. In the same way you


are engaged in perversion of Justice and a cover up! By this
deed, you have deviated from the Oath of office. You shall
reap what you sow! No one is above the law and the
consequences of perversion of justice.

48

What we have learnt is that might does not make right. Those who abuse their position of
power to wrath injustice on others will meet with injustice in the affairs of their lives and
the lives of their descendants. What is good for the goose is good for the gander.

49

This matter exposes the fallacy in expecting Illinois Supreme Court Justices to police
themselves or expose the corruption within the judiciary. I am entitled to a fair and
impartial hearing before a fair and impartial arbiter before you can take my law
license, my source of livelihood. No one has the Moral, Ethical or Legal Authority to
orchestrate a sham hearing as a ruse to suspend my law license and means of
livelihood. I am innocent of your false accusations! What this shows is they will rather
cover things up and suspend the lawyer that dares expose their corruption rather than take
a hard look at the evidence. Where is the Moral, Ethical or Legal Authority for the
Justices to suspend a lawyer for saying the bitter truth about corruption within their
ranks? Other than self preservation?

50

Your decisions of August 6, 2013, and May 15, 2014 defy logic, defy basic
commonsense and amount to an abuse of judicial power to crush anyone that exposes
judicial corruption. It cannot stand. No one is above the law. Everyone in our society
including the Justices of the Illinois Supreme Court is bound to follow the law, be
Ethical, be Moral, be Accountable, Transparent and Honest. You cannot conspire among
yourselves to roll back the clock on another persons Civil Rights just because they do
not look like you or they are not connected. That is classic abuse of the judicial Authority
entrusted to you.

Charge to Every Person Reading this Letter


Today, it is Lanre O. Amu. Tomorrow it can be you or your loved ones! We must stand
together against evil in Our Society. Evil can only prevail in Our Society, when good
people sit down, do nothing and say nothing. Each and everyone of us must be
Transparent, Honest and Accountable.

I have told the truth and I have not misrepresented anything. Rather, ARDC has
orchestrated false accusations against me. If you doubt what I am saying, then please set
up a meeting, and I want the encounter to be VIDEOTAPED so the whole world can
weigh in on this matter. I promise you before God and Man that the entire Illinois

Supreme Court Justices and the ARDC starting from its Administrator Jerome Larkin
will be publicly disgraced and humiliated before the entire world. It will confirm to the
World that I told the truth after all.
53

We must be able to complain about corruption because it has adverse impact on our lives.
It reduces us to slaves in the modern world.

54

Tell a judge she is wrong and you risk the suspension of your law license. If a lawyer
who is in a position to observe a judges conduct cannot criticize wrongs in our courts,
then who can? A lawyer ought to be able to speak out about problems concerning the
administration of justice in Our Courts. Who observed daily how things operate in the
court? ARDC? No. Supreme Court Justices? No. Amu? Yes. So on what basis is your
verdict that I made false statements were you there? Would you rather be judged by the
same standard you judge Amu? The system as it currently is is so lopsided and
imbalanced. None of the established institutions, ARDC or JIB, sounded the alarm before
any of the prior court scandals.

55

Where was ARDC in the Judicial Corruption Scandal of 1969 that Forced Illinois
Supreme Court Justices Ensnared in the Judicial Corruption to Resign? ARDC was
nowhere to be found.

56

Where was ARDC in the Operation Greylord Judicial Corruption Scandal that ended with
Several Judges going to Jail for Judicial Corruption? ARDC was nowhere to be found

57

Where was the ARDC in the Operation Gambat Judicial Corruption Scandal that ended
with a Judge going to Jail and another judge committing suicide when the law closed in
on him? ARDC was nowhere to be found.

58

Where is ARDC in the Judicial Corruption complaints of today? ARDC is where it has
always been. Nowhere to be found. ARDC has perfected the art of window dressing,
whitewash, and self-preservation by orchestrating Kangaroo (with sincere apologies to
the Kangaroos) Proceedings to coverup judicial corruption and destroy the whistle
blower(s). Illinois Supreme Court Justices work in tandem with the ARDC to
rubberstamp ARDCs corrupt bidding.

the judiciary is to live in denial. To be certain, I have met honest and altruistic judges in
the court system. I have also met crooked and dishonest gangster type judges in the court
system. As a lawyer, you expose these powerful cabal at your own risk. That is a risk I
took that now resulted in the Illinois Supreme Courts seven Justices taking my law
license under false pretenses. This is a glaring reason why there must be fundamental
reform in the Illinois Judicial System, Illinois Legal System, and the Illinois Court
System. The Judiciary cannot police itself exclusively - if so where is probity,
accountability and transparency today? Neither should the Judiciary police the lawyers
who are learned in legalese, able to decode legalese, unmask fraud, and expose judicial
corruption for what it is. Court decisions often are no longer established on transparency,
honesty, truth and righteousness but on how our New Earthly Lords feel, and their
unrighteous decisions cannot be questioned by lawyers without risking suspension or
disbarment.
60

There is a Conflict of Interest when the ARDC set up by the Illinois Supreme Court
polices lawyers who expose judicial corruption. It leads to sham proceedings at the
ARDC and rubberstamp by the Illinois Supreme Court Justices. There is a structural
imbalance here. A lawyer fraudulently suspended by the Illinois Supreme Court is
automatically suspended at the United States District Court without second guessing the
basis for suspension in the Illinois Supreme Court. That same lawyer is also
automatically suspended at the United States Court of Appeals without second guessing
the basis for suspension in the Illinois Supreme Court. Something is terribly wrong with
this picture. Relief by means of a cause of action in federal court to challenge the
fraudulent suspension of the lawyers license is also barred by the Rooker-Feldman
doctrine which prohibits lower federal courts from reviewing state court decisions. The
chances of getting a writ of certiorari challenging the fraudulent suspension granted in
the United States Supreme Court is slim, not to mention the expenses, time and labor.
This injustice needs to be addressed.

Irrefutable Evidence of the Denial of 5th and 14th Amendments Rights to Equal Protection of
the Law. Given Similarly Situated Attorneys, Whites Protected, and the Black Unprotected
61

All three similarly situated attorneys named in the chart below were charged with making
false statements about the integrity of judges. Amu a Black attorney was not guilty yet
was railroaded and given 3 years suspension under a Kangaroo Proceedings. At issue
now is which of Amus statements are false, and how did they determine by Clear and
Convincing Evidence that they are false when Amus testimony was not contradicted at
the Hearing? The two White lawyers who were found guilty got 6 months and 5 months
suspensions. The lawyers and judges with personal knowledge testified in the case of the
White lawyers. No one testified in Amus case. Amus subpoenas to the judges and
lawyers he accused of corruption were quashed by the Illinois Supreme Court Justices. If

Amu, then what is it? Must we dispense with commonsense just because we are in
Illinois Courts? A guilty White attorney (who is less likely to face race and ethnic
prejudice in court) gets 6 months suspension while a falsely accused innocent Black
attorney (who is more likely to face race and ethnic prejudice in court) and who is denied
a right to a fair trial gets immediate suspension, plus 3 years suspension, plus until further
order of the court? Is this not reminiscent of the disparities in sentencing for those Blacks
found with cheap crack cocaine and Whites found with expensive powdered cocaine?
How is this not barbaric in 2014? If this is not race and ethnic prejudice, then what is it?

Soul Searching Questions: How is Amu suspended without a witness testifying against
him? Without a complainant? Why would the Illinois Supreme Court quash Amus
subpoenas to have the judges and the lawyers involved testify under Oath when in the
cases of the White attorneys, the judges and the lawyers involved in fact testified under
Oath? A White attorney found guilty of making false statement concerning the integrity
of a judge gets 6 months suspension while an innocent Black attorney decreed guilty
under false pretenses gets immediate suspension plus 3 years suspension plus Until
Further Order of the Court. This ought to go down in the Guinness Book of World

Only a Corrupt ARDC establishment and Illinois Supreme Court Justices will find

witnesses, and there were no 213(f)(2) witnesses. The Subpoenas Lanre O. Amu issued
to cut to the chase and compel the Judges and lawyers he accused of corruption to
testify under Oath were resisted by the Judges and lawyers when they filed motions in the
Illinois Supreme Court asking the Illinois Supreme Court Justices to quash Lanre O.
Amus Subpoenas. The Illinois Supreme Court Justices quashed Lanre O. Amus
subpoenas to compel the Judges and lawyers he accused of corruption to testify under
Oath. Under these circumstances, on what authority are you able to find me guilty of
making false statements?
ARDC Ethics 2014 Seminar: Amus Ethics Question Remains Unanswered by ARDC
64

Lanre O. Amu was in attendance at the ARDC Ethics 2014 Seminar held on June 4,
2014 at the Hilton Chicago Hotel. During a question and answer session, Amu asked the
panel of lecturers what steps an attorney can take where he observes Judicial Corruption
and Corruption at the ARDC, Amu then gave the panel members or lecturers Appendix
#2 so they can read it and answer the question within that context. The Ethics panel
promised to answer the question before the end of that session. They did not answer the
question. Every other mundane question was answered, but they did not answer or
address Amus question. I later went and gave the same question and Appendix #2 to
ARDC officers: Jerome Larkin, James Grogan, Scott Renfroe, and Wendy Muchman. As
at June 16, 2014, none has answered Amus ethics question.

Further Debunking ARDCs Propaganda


I have read the following in ARDCs propaganda reports:

66.1

Amu poses a risk of harm to his clients, to the profession and to the integrity of the legal
system Amus Response: Where is the evidence to reach such absurd conclusion? None.
Rather, it is judicial corruption that Amu complained about and the ARDCs sham
hearing process that pose dangers to clients who are defrauded in court, danger to the
legal profession as attorneys are caused to stumble and get into trouble, and a danger to
the integrity of the court system.

66.2

ARDC again misrepresents in Propaganda reports:


ARDC accused Amu of making false statements about the integrity of several Cook

M.R.26545

County judges he appeared before in his representation of different clients Amus


Response: how on earth did ARDC arrive at the conclusion that Amus statements are
false? Who testified that they are false? Amus Response: Nobody. Who filed a
complaint with ARDC that they are false? Amus Response: Nobody.
66.3

ARDC again misrepresents in Propaganda reports:


The panels recommendation stems from a four-count complaint the ARDC
administrator brought against Amu in 2011 and accused him of misconduct for making
statements that challenged the integrity and fairness of Cook County Circuit Court
judges Irwin S. Solganick, Thomas R. Chiola, Francis J. Dolan and Lynn M. Egan.
Amus Response: Of what use am I to my client if I cannot challenge the judicial
corruption that deprives them of a fair and impartial hearing on their life issues? Why
should I lose my law license for that where no one has disputed the written sworn
statements I made challenging the integrity and fairness of these four judges in separate
cases within a 9 year period? Why should I lose my law license and livelihood under
these circumstances?

66.4

ARDC again misrepresents in Propaganda reports:


In the complaint, the ARDC asserted that Amu knew the statements to be false,
unfounded and baseless in violation of Illinois Supreme Court rules. Amus
Response: isnt this absurd? How did the ARDC conjure that I knew that my own Sworn
statements are false? How are they false? Who has testified that they are false? Amus
Response: Nobody. How does the ARDC meet the Clear and Convincing Evidentiary
Standard where Amus testimony is not contradicted? This is indeed Crook County!

66.5

ARDC again misrepresents in Propaganda reports:


The statements in question were made following adverse rulings rendered against
Amus clients in various cases between 2004 and 2011. Amus Response: In 16 years of
legal practice Amu has had over 1,000 adverse rulings. What has adverse ruling standing
alone got to do with whether or not the judges acted corruptly? Who has testified that the
statements are false? Amus Response: Nobody. Isnt the aim of every judicially corrupt
ruling to pervert justice?

66.6

ARDC again misrepresents in Propaganda reports:


In 2004, for example, Amu called Dolan a very sophisticated scam artist judge and a
henchman for the defendant insurance company after Dolan barred witnesses from
testifying against a business that Amus clients were suing, according to the ARDC.
Amus Response: Why did ARDC wait from 2004 until 7 years later (2011) to bring a
complaint on a matter Amu reported to the ARDC in 2004 and in which Amu asked for a
hearing and ARDC told Amu that ARDC will not proceed because ARDC cannot meet

its burden of prove by Clear and Convincing Evidence? What has changed? Cant
judicial corruption be sophisticated white collar crime? Why did Judge Dolan not file a
complaint against me if what I said was not true? (After all, Judge Dolan filed a
complaint with the ARDC against another lawyer John N. Dore 2009 P 122, when he felt
Dores accusations against him were not true?) Why did Judge Dolan change his ruling
after my challenge to his conduct? Why did Judge Dolan not come to the ARDC Hearing
to testify against me for making false statement? (After all, Judge Dolan testified at the
ARDC Hearing against Mr. Dore on similar charges when he felt the accusations were
not true?) Why should I lose my law license for this?
66.7

ARDC again misrepresents in Propaganda reports:


In another instance, the report states, Amu in 2011 posted a 23-page document on his law
firms website titled An Open Letter to the Illinois Appellate Court, in which he
accused Egan of racial bias and corruption. Amus Response: The Open Letter is a public
document filed in court. It is not a secret document. Amu must be able to state his side of
the story in face of harassment and misinformation by the corrupt cabal. Is ARDCs fraud
induced suspension claiming Amu made false statements not on the web? So why is Amu
not able to equally tell his side of the story? What makes Amus statement false? Has
anything stated by Amu been denied by anyone? No.

66.8

ARDC again misrepresents in Propaganda reports:


His open letter followed an appeals panel ruling that upheld Judge Lynn Egans
decision vacating a default judgment against his client in a personal injury case against a
food store. The judge, according to the ARDC, had vacated the judgment after the store
owners had argued that notice of the legal action had not been properly served.
Amu, however, asserted that Egan and lawyers for the store had fixed the case and
that the proceedings were a sham. As alleged proof, Amu claimed that the judges
brother worked at a law firm hired by the stores insurance company to defend it against
the suit.
The ARDC Hearing Board in May found these and other accusations Amu lodged
against the judges to be so reckless as to be considered a knowing misrepresentation.
Amus Response: The appeal panel and ARDC rulings are cynical futile attempts at
whitewashing and coverup of judicial corruption. You must remember we are talking
about white color crime here. How did the ARDC Hearing Board determine that Amus
statements are reckless or knowing misrepresentation? Were they there? Which witness
testified they are misrepresentations? Who has denied Amus statements? Why should I
lose my law licence over this?

66.9

ARDC again misrepresents in Propaganda reports:


Before the Hearing Board, Amu stood by his statements and argued that they should be
held to be true as none of the judges opted to testify in the matter. He said his statements
were constitutionally protected speech and maintained that he, as an African immigrant,
was a victim of racial discrimination. Amus Response: is this not absurd? This is a
misrepresentation of Amus argument. None of the judges opted ? when did subpoena
become a matter of option to comply? Who has denied Amus statements? Amu
subpoenaed the lawyers and judges to the hearing? They all moved to quash the
subpoenas. The Illinois Supreme Court sided with them and quashed all the subpoenas I
issued. So, why am I guilty? Who has testified that I made a false statements?

66.10 After the matter went to the Review Board, it upheld the recommendation for discipline.
. . Amus Response: On what basis did the Review Board uphold a false finding? Did
they have personal knowledge of what transpired in the courtroom that Amu wrote
about?
66.11 In its report, the Review Board found precedent has established that statements by
lawyers against the integrity of a judge does not fall under the umbrella of protection
offered by the First Amendment.Amus Response: how is this so in this case?
He repeatedly characterized the judges as corrupt, the report states. His statements
were not merely expressions of opinion or of disagreement with the courts rulings.
Amus Response: Amus written statements have not been denied by anyone. No one. So
how do you conjure that Amus statements are false? You were not there!
66.12 The Review Board also agreed with the Hearing Boards finding that an attorney who
repeatedly takes adverse rulings in client cases personally and who is inclined to believe
he was racially discriminated against whenever he feels he was treated unfairly poses a
danger to our court system. Amus Response: 4 complaints in 16 years of legal practice

ruling personally? What is the basis for that finding? In 16 years of legal practice, Amu
has had over 1,000 adverse rulings. Who has denied Amus written statements?
66.13 But it asserts that sanctions are necessary, saying it has concerns that if Amu were
allowed to continue practicing, he would continue to engage in similar misconduct if
faced with an adverse ruling by a judge. Amus Response: 4 complaints in 16 years of
legal practice hints at a pretext. So you must suspend for three years for a first ever
encounter with ARDC where no one testified to deny Amus statements? Is this not
railroading? Amu stood by his statements? What is the basis of this finding that Amu
made false statements? Where is the support for this in the evidence? Three years
suspension from the practice of law for written statements defending the rights of my
