Gloria Jean Sykes on Justice Served Radio

Editor's note: Your ProbateShark suggests any person having guardianship problems with the probate court system would benefit from listening to the archive recording of the Gloria Sykes program aired live this evening at the link below.  Gloria presented the horrendous misfortune that befell her mother and herself from first hand experience.  Gloria,  keep up the fight!  Lucius Verenus, Schoolmaster,
Tune in tonight at 6 p.m. eastern time (5 central) for the interview of Gloria Jean Sykes, which provides the back story to the great interviews by disciplined lawyers Ken Ditkowsky and Joann Denison covered last week about the Mary Sykes guardianship situation.

I want to thank Andy for giving me the opportunity to be on his show and speak candidly about guardianship and what I believe-- after great research and first hand experience- is the only way to limit the abuses against the elderly and disabled in our probate and family courts. And I hope my message provided hope that adult children have the tools to stand up and say NO YOU CANT DO THAT. My other Hope is that for those who believe new legislation is the solution understand that unless such legislation begins and ends with the wordsIN COMPLIANCE WITH THE ADA AND REHABILITATION ACT all you are found is stuffing an already crowded pile of paper that will be ignored by the cottage industry of attorneys who prey on the elderly and disabled but also, you will individually and collectively be no more tooled to abolish guardianship or protect your loved ones and forever remain in the rabbit hole of the Pribate exception:Rooker FELDMAN doctrine: Younger abstention and Struck v. Cook County Public Guardian and M.G,S. v. The cook County circuit Court (2012). You don't have to believe me but look around you. Thus far the only person who has towered over and prevailed in federal court is Linda Reed v The State of Cook County, (2015) though she did not argue associational discrimination --the reasonable accommodation of the probate court allowing the adult Ward a family members informed perspective and emotional support(-- which most of us were denied-- 

 Let's take a breath and go beyond the emotion. We all have choices. We can be they victim or we can defy the evil by playing their biggest fears: having the tools --ADA and RA.  It took me a very very long time to fully understand but as soon as I did I owned my actions. 

Again thank you Andy and Cynthia.
