                                                                                                                                                                                                 RE: Case No. 15-CA-001568

 Dear Judge Duryea,

            My name is John Wells, and as you may already know, I am the President of Extend a Hand For Justice.  We have previously filed Friend of The Court Notices in your court in the above referenced case specifically notifying you of the numerous civil right violations and the related and important information that needed to be disclosed.    As such, we are not beholding to you or the court or subjected to your authority in any way, as we are not a party of the litigation involved.  We are an outside party who has witnessed a substantial amount of improper, unethical, unlawful, and unprofessional conduct perpetrated by various parties involved in the above litigation and are compelled to speak out against such activities.  Said activities have been inflicted against the Defendants in this matter for over two years without any attempt to justify the improper actions and correct the serious violations inflicted against them.

             We have just learned that you made a ruling in that case which completely contradicts the information you had from the information we submitted to you.  Not only was said ruling erroneous, it contradicts legal case law and the US Constitution in its entirety. Just where did you go to Judge school?  We also were apprised that no Officer, Director, or Religious Community Member was informed of what appears to be a secret hearing in your courtroom on November 15, 2016, and that there is no recording or transcript indicating what transpired at said hearing.  We find this action to be deplorable and a serious dishonest act of Judicial Misconduct, and we intend on filing a formal complaint with your Florida Judicial Commission and will seek an investigation of your actions.

            In your Order signed on November 30, 2016, you stated “After reviewing the court file, case law, and having heard the arguments of Counsel, the Court found that the evidence points to the fact that there was due process provided, but they slept on their rights as the new proceeding was going forward.”  Yet, you completely ignored the information that was given to you.  That statement not only contradicts the information submitted to you, specifically all of the documents attached as Exhibit 9 in Issue # VIII of the SUPPLEMENT TO THE NOTICE TO THE COURT FILED NOVEMBER 8, 2016 BY A FRIEND OF THE COURT, but evidences the disregard you have for implementing justice within your jurisdiction and the continuous denials of Due Process of Law and Access to their Court.   The documentation therein noticed to you overwhelmingly evidences the consistent and continuous objects, complaints, and appeals, as well as notices of improper activities and procedures.  The members of The Nelsen Residence Inc. are not attorneys or Members of a bar, and their objections, complaints, and appeals, in artfully as they may be, must be held in less stringent standard than Members of any attorney or Bar.  Such objections, complaints, and appeals are totally in contradiction to your statement that “they slept on their rights.” Our specific request that you take Judicial Notice of specific information and documentation was apparently ignored.  Additionally, said notices to you, substantially contradicts your statement that “they slept on their rights as the new proceeding was going forward.  Your erroneous findings and ruling was a very dishonest and Un-Christian thing to do.  Your actions have now threaten the trust and discipline that makes our Judicial system strong.

             We further contend that you, after receiving said Notices from us, intentionally, spitefully, and vindictively retaliated against The Nelsen Residence Inc. in your dishonest ruling.  Extend a Hand For Justice has lost all respect for you and will not treat you with the respect a responsible Jurist is due.  You have shown little regard for the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, and we intend on disclosing these activates to the respected parties.  A willingness to abide by the Constitution is not hypothetical; it is, instead, a grave duty for an Officer of the Court such as you to perform.  Your actions have shown an utter lack of respect for the citizens of your community, and are a serious threat to our Constitution.  As such, we fully feel that you are not familiar with the Constitution of The United States that you have sword to uphold and protect.  We are therefore submitting a Complimentary Copy of said CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA for you to read and abide by.  We persistently request that you pay attention to the First and Fourth Amendments of said Bill of Rights as they apply to your actions.  

             Please do not attempt to justify your ruthless actions as some form of performing your judicial duties because they are contrary to common sense.   The Court does not have the privilege to lie or falsify its findings.

            We cannot nor will not interfere with your Court’s operations; however, we can, and will adamantly give notice to all appropriate authorities and the public at large all issues of Judicial Misconduct and improper activities of all parties as an outside third party.  We therefore adamantly request that you seriously take judicial notice of all of the information and documentation therein supplied.

             As a separate issue, we have received information, although not as yet verified, that various members of, and the Law Firm of Henderson, Franklin, Starnes, & Holt, P.A. itself contributed financially and assisted in your election as Judge for the Court.  If this is in fact true, it leads to believe that there may be a serious conflict of interest and a bias and predisposition to the parties involved in the above reference case.  Normally such assistance is acceptable as long as impartiality is maintained.  However in lieu of your decision and order, it raises concerns of preferential and biased treatment.  We are not going to elaborate on all of the numerous acts of Judicial Misconduct alleged as our Notices to you are self-explanatory, and your refusal to take appropriate judicial notice is by itself, a serious additional Denial of Due Process of Law.  However, some of the acts are as follows:

 1.)        We had dutifully informed you that we contend that the case before you is in fact a SLAPP litigation, which in itself is unlawful.  It is well apparent that the Defendants have consistently denied The City’s allegations and argued that the City filed the lawsuit for “the purposes of harassing” and “extorting” them so they would eventually settle to avoid having their reputation tarnished, Your deliberate failure or refusal to properly address this issue is another act of Judicial Misconduct.

 2.)        We had dutifully informed you that the Plaintiff in this case has continuously refused and  failed to provide required discovery documentation, including, but not limited to their refusal to provide a transcript of their alleged hearing, which in turn thwarted the efforts of the Defendant’s ability to appeal any adverse decisions or rulings.  Your deliberate failure or refusal to properly address this issue is another act of Judicial Misconduct.

 3.)        We have dutifully informed you that the Plaintiff has continuously refused and failed to provide the taking of depositions of the responsible parties who inflicted gross violations of both Constitutional and Religious Rights.  Your deliberate failure or refusal to properly address this issue is another act of Judicial Misconduct.

 4.)        We have dutifully informed you that the Plaintiff has refused and failed to provide requested other discovery documentation to the Defendant, which in turn has denied the Defendant the ability to process their respective claims.  Your deliberate failure or refusal to properly address this issue is another act of Judicial Misconduct.

 5.)        We had dutifully informed you that numerous parties within the City of Cape Coral willfully caused the publishing of false and erroneous information that has seriously tainted the local jury pool and interfered with the ability of the Defendants to seek redress of their claims.  Your deliberate failure or refusal to properly address this issue and sanction the responsible activities is another act of Judicial Misconduct.

 6.)        We had dutifully informed you that we had reservations and concerns that Defendant’s counsel was not properly representing their client’s interests as required.  Your failure to address this issue is being taken as a deliberate attempt to ignore proper conduct of Officers of your Court.

 7.)        Your actions have single handedly condoned the Constitutional and Religious violations perpetrated by The City of Cape Coral.  You have contributed to the interference of the religious practices of a Religious Community. You have contributed to the criminal actions of Mr. Michael Anagnos and his blackmail extortion, and defrauding. And, you have now contributed to the loss of scholarship grants for an estimated 15 low income disadvantaged students as a result of the necessity of The Nelsen Residence Inc.’s requirement to Appeal your improper order.  Just so there is no future misunderstanding, we will be holding you personally responsible for the losses experienced by these disadvantaged students in their educational goals.

             If justice can not be obtained in the normal proceedings of the courts, we have no other choice but to disclose the injustices inflicted to outside parties.

           As a direct result of your actions, members, numerous Community Members, including Mr. Jerome F. Valenta, have suffered emotional distress and indications of stoke conditions which has now caused this organization serious damages as he is currently incapacitated and is effecting this entity’s separate operations.

             We are thoroughly appalled at the actions of the Attorneys at Law, Members of The Bar Association, and Officers of the Court in Florida.  Is Florida not part of The United States of America? Do you not have ethic and professional requirements in the State of Florida?  It should not be necessary for an outside advocacy organization to have to address issues of improper conduct of the courts. Nothing like this could ever happen in California.  It certainly appears that you lack a proper check and balance of your judiciary.  Therefore, please be fully advised that we intend on filing formal complaints with the Florida Judicial Commission, and will be disclosing said activities to the general public for them to provide a proper check and balance of the atrocities that occur within your judicial system.

             This correspondence, and the proceeding Notices filed are herein solely made by this entity and has no connection or association to any of the parties of the above court case.  However, in the event that the court further punishes the parties involved and/or retaliates against them as a result of our Notices and correspondences, further complaints will be lodged.

             Although this correspondence is separate of any assumed court filings or alleged improper correspondence with the court, we have elected to serve all parties involved so that any misconstrued assumptions will be abated.

 Sincerely,

 John Wells
President of Extend a Hand For Justice

          A California Civil Rights Organization, Extend a Hand For Justice, has filed a formal complaint with the Florida Judicial Qualifications Commission alleging “Gross Judicial Deception and Gross Misconduct which defies and violates the public trust” against three Florida judges and seeks their removal from the bench. The complaint, filed in August 2017, was made against Judges John E. Duryea Jr.; Alane Laboda; and Jay B. Rosman of the 20th Judicial Circuit Court in Fort Myers, Florida. The complaint further alleges overall conspiracy and collusion between the judges and the local law firm, Henderson, Franklin, Starnes & Holt, P.A.  The complaint pertains to activities surrounding court cases between The City of Cape Coral and The Nelsen Residence Inc., a Lee County Religious Community that has challenged improper conduct by city personnel.  The City, represented by Attorneys Robert Shearman, Richard Aiken & Tracie McKee with the Henderson Law Firm, apparently has a direct contact with Judge Laboda, who was a prior partner in the Firm.  It was also alleged that the Henderson Law Firm participated in both Judges Duryea’s and Rosman’s prior elections, and was instrumental in the election of Laboda.

AN OPEN LETTER TO DISHONORABLE JUDGE JAY B. ROSMAN OF THE 20TH JUDICIAL CIRCUIT

Dishonorable Judge Jay B. Rosman
Circuit Court of 20th Judicial Circuit
In and For Lee County
1700 Monroe Street
Fort Myers, FL 33901                                                                                                                           July 24, 2017

RE: Case No. 15-CA-001568

Dear Dishonorable Jay B. Rosman,

            As you should already be aware, my name is John Wells, and as you already know, I am the President of Extend a Hand For Justice, a non-profit advocacy organization dedicated to speaking out against injustice.  We have previously filed numerous “Friend of The Court” Notices in your court, as well as in the Second District Court of Appeal, in the above referenced case specifically notifying every one of the numerous civil right violations and the related and important information that needed to be disclosed.    As such, we are not beholding to you or the court or subjected to your authority in any way, as we are not a party of the litigation involved.  We are an outside party who has witnessed a substantial amount of improper, unethical, unlawful, and unprofessional conduct perpetrated by various parties involved in the above litigation and are compelled to speak out against such activities.  Said activities have been inflicted against the Defendants in this matter for almost three years without any attempt to justify the improper actions and correct the serious violations inflicted against them.

            We have just been informed that you held a secret hearing on May 8, 2017, and made a ruling on June 1, 2017, and subsequently recorded on June 6, 2017, in the above noted case which completely contradicts the information you had from the information we previously submitted to you.  Not only was said ruling erroneous, it contradicts legal case law and the US Constitution in its entirety.   We also were apprised that no Officer, Director, or Religious Community Member was informed of any hearing and ruling until July 4, 2017, a serious injustice to them.  We have previously noticed you of improper representation of counsel, and the Defendant/Counter Plaintiff had likewise notice the court in their January 6, 2017 Objection.  As the Presiding Judge, you had the inherit duty, responsibility, and obligation to oversee and monitor Attorneys at Law, Members of the Bar Association, and Officers of your Court.  Yet, you did nothing to assure proper procedure in your Courtroom.  SHAME ON YOU!

            Did you ever hear of an “unlawful” SLAPP litigation?  Apparently you have not.  We openly disclosed to you and the Court that the filing of the litigation against The Nelsen Residence Inc. was indeed a SLAPP litigation and submitted substantial documentation and information to support our claim. As the Presiding Judge, you had an inherited duty, obligation, and responsibility to address said issue as required.  You did not.  SHAME ON YOU!  We are therefore submitting to you a copy of Florida Statute Section 768.295 so that you can educate yourself as to what it is and what your responsibilities are.  We also suggest your refer to the following sites to familiarize yourself with the seriousness of the ramifications of your actions.

             Did you ever hear of THE RELIGIOUS FREEDOM RESTORATION ACT OF 1993? and the related Florida Statutes of Chapter 761?  Apparently you have not.  We openly disclosed to you and the Court substantial documentation and information of the unlawful actions of The City of Cape Coral against The Nelsen Residence Inc. which you totally ignored and attempted to circumvent in your erroneous decision.  SHAME ON YOU!  We are therefore submitting to you a copy of both Federal and State Statutes so that you can educate yourself as to what it is and what your responsibilities are.  We also suggest you refer to the following sites to familiarize yourself with the seriousness of the ramifications of your actions.

MISCONDUCT COMPLAINT AGAINST FLORIDA JUDGE

                                                                                 By Jimmie Martz

          In conclusion, please be aware of the following:

We conclude that your decision, ruling and/or order filed June 6, 2017 was not a product based on fact or law.

That your order was in fact a personal retaliatory act in response to our previous court filings and letters of complaint in a direct attempt to punish the Defendant/Counter Plaintiff.

That there are serious conflict of interest that have been initiated by the Presiding Judges.

That there is serious bias, prejudices, and discrimination against The Nelsen Residence Inc. and Extend a Hand For Justice.

That the Court and the Presiding Judges ignored or circumvented the Federal and Florida Constitution; SLAPP litigation; and the Religious Freedom and Restoration Acts of both Federal and State.

That the Court and the Presiding Judges colluded and corroborated with a known criminal in his criminal acts of extortion, blackmail, and attempts to defraud.

That the Court and the Presiding Judges unfairly colluded and corroborated with the Plaintiff/Counter Defendant and their Cousel of record.

That the Court and the Presiding Judges Denied Due Process of Law.

That as a direct result of the actions of the Court and presiding Judges, caused mental, physical, and economic harm to countless innocent parties.

As a direct result of the denial of due process of law and the ability to address the violations committed against the Defendant/Counter Plaintiff in a court of law, a court of the public will be initiated.

            This correspondence, and the preceeding Notices and Letters filed are herein solely made by this entity and has no connection or association to any of the parties of the above court case.  However, in the event that the court further punishes the parties involved and/or retaliates against them as a result of this, or any of our Notices and correspondences, further complaints will be lodged with the appropriate parties.

            Although this correspondence is separate of any assumed court filings or alleged improper correspondence with the court, we have elected to serve all parties involved so that any miscontrued assumptions will be abated.

Sincerely,

 
John Wells

 Judge John E. Duryea Jr.       Judge Alane Laboda            Judge Jay B. Rosman          

PAGE 4

             In our courts, here in California, it is common for Judges to reign over criminal activities.  You not only did not do so, but in fact corroborated and colluded with the unlawful actions of know criminal activities of a Mr. Michael Anagnos, who openly committed acts of extortion, blackmail, and attempts to defraud against The Nelsen Residence Inc..  (SEE ATTACHED DECLARATIONS) You not only ignored said criminal activities, but colluded with his criminal acts by falsly referencing him in your false and feable attempt to justify your actions.  I would adamantly suggest you read the testimony of Nelsen’s corporate representative, Jerome Valenta’s deposition.  Nowhere does Mr. Valenta testify that Mr. Anagnos served as a “caretaker of the property” as you falsly allege.  On the contrary, said claim was made only by Mr. Anagnos, and repeated by the Code Enforcement Officer who colluded with his false claims.  Mr. Anagnos was simply a resident receiving subsidized rent and did meager or minor volunteer work around the premises.  Even the Jury in his frivolous claims in the U.S. District Cout, Case No. 2:14-cv-350-FtM-38DNF found that he was not any type of employee or representative of The Nelsen Residence Inc.  How you can bend and twist distorted information and attempt to justify your actions is simply despicable.

             For your information, and the Court was fully appraised previously, there never was any violations of any City of Cape Coral Codes.  Said claims were initiated by Mr. Anagnos’ extortion and defraud attempts, and corroborated with City Inspector Marilyn Buck, a person who testified under oath in her deposition that she had no knowledge of construction, and merely referred to Mr. Anagnos’ claims.  I am further attaching a copy of our June 26, 2017 filing in THE SECOND DISTRICT COURT OF APPEAL, Case No. 2D-16-5559, entitled, NOTICE TO THE COURT OF PERTINENT INFORMATION BY A FRIEND OF THE COURT for your reference.  Please pay attention to all of EXHIBIT 4 for pertinent testimony of Ms. Buck who stated among other things that she had no construction knowledge; that she never contacted any Officer, Director Representative, or Owner of The Nelsen Residence Inc.; that no notice of her inspection was ever received by The Nelsen Residence Inc.; that she had a history of  giving wrong information to citizens; that she had a history of recalling or remembering things discussed; that her claim of a sign violation was never substantiated or verified; (the fact that The Nelsen Residence Inc. obtained a valid permit for the sign in Aug. 1999 by the City, but “I wouldn’t know where to look for it” has to be the epitome of abuse of authority) that Mr. Anagnos stated that he was a disgruntled person and wasn’t getting paid for his volunteer work;

            Also, please pay attention to (EXHIBIT 5) of the deposition testimony of building inspector Kent Liebegott, who also testified that he was in fact called out by Mr. Anagnos and not “just driving by” as originally alleged; that he erroneously claimed that the residential building located at 2307 SE 15th PL “was a “commercial building”, that an approved engineering plan of the stairs was needed, and that a building permit was required.  After purgering himself 4 times, in a complete change of direction, Mr. Liebegott than testified that sanding, painting, or replacing threads on a stair, acts that were being performed by The Nelsen Residence Inc., did not require a permit, “I think the treads, I don’t believe – no, they don’t require a permit to the best of my knowledge,” completely certifying that his erroneous “STOP WORK IMMEDIATELY” was in fact erroneous and an abuse of his authority, and anything or any subsequent actions after that point was erroneous, and unfounded.

            In addition, please pay attention to all of (EXHIBIT 6) pertaining to the objections of The Nelsen Residence Inc. of the December 12, 2014 raiding and unlawful entering by 5 City of Cape Coral’s personnel of the private residential building under the false pretenses that the building was a “commercial building,” a pretense that was later found to be untrue.  Yet, you adamantly stated that no unauthorized entry was made, and the Counter Plaintiff’s had no grounds for redress.

ON JULY 24, 2017, EXTEND A HAND FOR JUSTICE SUBMITTED A OPEN LETTER TO JUDGE JAY B. ROSMAN CHASTIZING HIM FOR HIS DISHONEST JUDICIAL MISCONDUCT AND THE DELIBERATE DENIALS OF CONSTITUTIONAL DUE PROCESS OF LAW

           It is the consensus of the staff of Extend a Hand For Justice that the actions of Judge Rosman was a direct retaliatory, consorted, and colluded act by him, Judge Laboda, and Judge Duryea in response to Extend a Hand For Justice’s previous January 15, 2017 “OPEN LETTER TO JUDGE JOHN E. DURYEA” and numerous "Friend of the Court" filings made in both Judge Duryea's and Rosman's Courts.

          A local advocacy organization, Extend a Hand For Justice, filed a open letter of complaint against a Florida 20th Circuit Court Judge alleging gross misconduct and improper ethics violations.  Judge John Duryea came under fire after he made a ruling that conflicted the information and facts previously submitted to him.  "We find this action to be deplorable and a serious dishonest act of Judicial Misconduct, and we intend on filing a formal complaint with your Florida Judicial Commission and will seek an investigation of your actions" stated the letter.

          As a direct result of the allegation of misconduct, Judge Duryea recused himself by order of the Court Administrator's Office who reassigned the case to another judge.  A formal complaint lodged with the Florida Judicial Commission is currently pending.

PAGE 5

            As to (EXHIBITS 7-8 and 9) please take further notice of previous notices of the City’s violations of both the SLAPP issue and the RELIGIOUS FREEDOM RESTORATION ACT.  Your ignorance of such matters caused a grave injustice to the Defendants/Counter Plaintiffs.

            We can not make you do what is right, since you wear a Black Gown and hold a Gavel, even though there is convincing evidence of bias, prejudice, discrimination, and dishonest behavior perpetrating Gross Judicial Misconduct.  We can not in good conscious refer to you as “Honorable” or “Judge” because you thoroughly disgraced the position you hold.  Your “Abuse of Discretion, Gross Judicial Misconduct, and Unethical Behavior” has inflicted disgrace within the entire Justice System, and will forever cloud the reputation of the Courts, especially in your Circuit.  There is nothing worse than a dishonest Judge who inflicts his personal biases, prejudices, and discriminations, and commits Gross Judicial Misconduct.  You sir, will go down in history, and your legacy will forever be tainted with your actions of the above case held before you.  We fully intend on making this matter a public record and publishing everything that has occurred in this travesty of injustice.

            There is sufficient evidence that the CIRCUIT COURT OF THE TWENTIETH JUDICIAL CIRCUIT is riddled with corruption and Judicial Misconduct.  Not only is there collusion, conflicts of interest, and undue influence, but over half of the sitting Judges of the Circuit neglect to post any biographic information as to who they are, where they were educated, where they practiced prior to appointment or election, or what their expertise in law consists of.  This in itself is a serious breach of duty to the general public.  We contend that this is a deliberate attempt to hide who runs your Courts.

            You can not turn back the clock, un-ring the bell, or put the water back over the dam.  Your actions were deliberate, and you did so with your eyes wide open.  So, please don’t attempt to justify your unethical and judicial misconduct.  You deliberately and intentionally committed the worst crime of a judiciary, you defiantly DENIED DUE PROCESS OF LAW.  The only difference between this case and ones in communist Russia or China is the government didn’t assassinate or incarcerate the parties protesting and disclosing the corruption that existed, if that’s any consolation.

             Your actions, along with those of Judge Duyea have collectively condoned the Constitutional and Religious violations perpetrated by The City of Cape Coral.  You have contributed to the interferrence of the religious practices of a Religious Community. You have contributed to the criminal actions of Mr. Michael Anagnos and his blackmail extortion, and defrauding. And, you have now contributed to the loss of scholarship grants for 30 low income disadvantaged students as a result of the necessity of The Nelsen Residence Inc’s requirement to Appeal your improper order.  Just so there is no future misunderstanding, we will be holding you personally responsible in front of God and man for the losses experienced by these disadvantaged students in their educational goals.  On July 15, 2017, the Board of Directors of The Nelsen Residence Inc. has suspended the issuance of 30 scholarship grants, (copy of notice attached) and have faulted you along with Judge Duyea and Judge Laboda.

FOLLOWING THE OPEN LETTER OF COMPLAINT BY EXTEND A HAND FOR JUSTICE AGAINST JUDGE JOHN E. DURYEA JR., FOR JUDICIAL MISCONDUCT, JUDGE DURYEA RECLUSED HIMSELF, WAS REMOVED FROM THE CASE, AND JUDGE ALANE LABODA, THE EX-PARTNER OF THE LAW FIRM HENDERSON, FRANKLIN, STARNES & HOLT, PA. AND THE ATTORNEYS REPRESENTING THE CITY OF CAPE CORAL FLORIDA, ASSIGNED THE CASE TO JUDGE JAY ROSMAN

There is so much overwhelming evidence that strongly indicates that the collusion of Judges Duryea, Laboda, and Rosman and the animosities against Extend a Hand led to the deliberate retaliatory acts against The Nelsen Residence Inc. and their denials of due process of law.

judges they held in their pocket.  Now, it's the large attorney firms who brag and now control what goes on in the courtrooms of America." said John Wells, President of Extend a Hand.  "Because most local judgeships are ultimately non-contested, it's easy for a large firm to hand pick one of their attorneys or partners to run for the open judge positions.  Once in, the ex-employee or ex-partner of the law firm, now a judge, can easily rule on the firm’s cases before him/her.  It’s a slam-dunk situation often giving un-ethical rulings in favor of the ex-partner’s firm.”  The Judge page on the web site for the 20th Circuit Court of Fort Myers, http://www.ca.cjis20.org/home/lee/leejudges.asp did in fact show that the majority of the sitting judges had no biographical information posted as to who they are, what their education and experience was, or who they were affiliated with prior to becoming judges.  “There is no proper check and balance of the judiciary of the 20th Circuit,” stated Wells.  “The can do whatever they wish, and the Judicial Qualifications Commission will not investigate the wrongdoings that exist, or disclose who is actually nixing the allegations.  For all I know, the ‘secret’ Panel could be the actual judges being complained about”
          “When an injured party, or a person who challenges improper behavior of a government entity, is subjected to unfavorable treatment by a discriminatory or colluding judge, it defies the ability to obtain justice,” says Marc Evans, the Executive Director of United for Justice, another California Civil Rights Organization.   "Using favoritism in the courtroom, as indicated by the substantial documents and evidence in this

ROSMAN.  ON AUGUST 17, 2017, THE JUDICIAL QUALIFICATIONS COMMISSION, IN A DELIBERATE ATTEMPT TO DISUADE THE FILINGS, FALSELY CLAIMED THAT JUDGE ALANE LABODA WAS NO LONGER A JUDGE, AND PROCESSED ONLY THE COMPLAINTS AGAINST DURYEA AND ROSMAN.   UPON FORMAL PROTEST BY EHFJ TO MR. ALEXANDER J. WILLIAMS, THE ASSISTANT GENERAL COUNSEL OF THE COMMISSION ON AUGUST 25, 2017, THE COMMISSION ABANDON THEIR FALSE CLAIM ON LABODA AND AGREED TO PROCESS ALL 3 COMPLAINTS AS SUBMITTED.  EHFJ HAS DETERMINED THAT THE FLORIDA JUDICIAL QUALIFICATIONS COMMISSION ATTEMPTS TO DISUADE COMPLAINTS AGAINST JUDGES.  PRIOR COMPLAINTS WERE RESPONDED TO WITH "RUBBER STAMP" DENIAL DECISIONS BY THE "INVESTIGATIVE PANEL  UPON REQUESTING THE NAMES OF SUCH "INVESTIGATING PANEL" THE COMMISSION DENIED THE DISCLOSURE.  AT THIS TIME, IT IS UNKNOWN AS TO WHO EXACTLY IS THE COMMISSION AND WHO THE "INVESTIGATING PANEL" MEMBERS ARE.

      Extend a Hand is no stranger to filing complaints with Judicial Commissions in numerous parts of the country.  Last April, Extend a Hand filed a complaint with the same Commission against Judge Duryea for his unusual findings in favor of a Motion for Summary Judgment filed by the Henderson Attorneys.  When a valid protest was made for the collusion and improper ruling, Judge Duryea disqualified himself.  Judge Laboda, acting as the Administrative Civil Judge, assigned the cases to Judge Rosman.  In May 2017, Extend a Hand filed another complaint with the Commission, notifying them that the majority of the Judges sitting on the 20th Circuit Court, intentionally omitting biographical information of prior education, experience, and the associations of law firms they worked for.  Apparent hearings or investigations by a “secret” Investigative Panel of the Commission, declined to take any action of the complaints.  After numerous Freedom of Information requests for the names of the “secret” Investigative Panel, the Commission refused to disclose the names.  “It used to be that many ‘Mafia Godfathers’   would   brag  about  how many

situation, only undermines the integrity of our courts. On top of that, when a Judicial Commission fails to properly oversee judicial misconduct, it destroys the trust of the public at large” Evans added.
           The case filed in the 20th Circuit Court of Lee County pertained to gross violations by the City of Cape Coral of the Religious Freedom and Restoration Act and a previous filing of a Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation, (SLAPP)***, by the City against The Nelsen Residence Inc., a local Religious Community that provides low cost housing for indigent parties.  Nelsen, doing business as The Haven of Divine Love, was originally a convent for nuns, but now operates as a Religious Community of both male and female members.  After hanging a “Heck No!, We won’t Go” banner on their Chapel and making a formal “Declaration of War” against the City in response to the City’s “anti-poor” policies and procedures, The City in retaliation, turned off the Community’s electricity and water effectively condemning their house of worship.   “To be denied Due Process of Law and the ability to pursue our claims by local Judges is in fact a travesty of injustice, and a mockery of the court system,” says Jerome Valenta, The Nelsen’s President and Chairman of The Board.  “We’ve been, pardon my pun, SLAPPED into submission by a very unethical group of Judges”
            Although the complaint with the Judicial Commission and subsequent appeals in the Appellate Court are still pending, it appears that the real losers in this instance are the disadvantaged and low income residents of Cape Coral who have suffered from their actions.

We find your actions to be deplorable and a serious dishonest act of Judicial Misconduct, and we intend on filing a formal complaint with your Florida Judicial Commission and will seek an investigation of your actions, even though we are well aware that the Judicial Qualifications Commission is nothing but the Fox guarding your Chicken Coop.  Your abuse of discretion is so egregious that it blows the mind of reason.

            In your Order signed on June 1, 2017, you stated “the Court having reviewed the file, considered the argument of counsel, and being otherwise fully advised in the premises” Yet, you completely ignored all of the information that was submitted and given to you.  You twisted and turned any information simply to suit your desired conclusion.  In fact, numerous alleged claims by you in your attempt to justify your decision were completely erroneous or non existent.  Did you just make them up?  Or did solely rely on misinformation supplied by the Plaintiff/Counter Defendant?  Either way, it is impossible for you to reach a proper conclusion when you rely on improper facts.  The adage, “Garbage in-Garbage out” is relevant in this case. In doing so, you denied the very aspect of Due Process of law that you were sworn to uphold.  We therefore contend that you intentionally ignored the facts and law in rendering your erroneous decision, and did so in a vindictive way.  So, please do not attempt to justify your ruthless actions as some form of performing your judicial duties because they are contrary to commen sence.   The Court does not have the privilege to lie or falsify its findings. Your erroneous findings and ruling was a very dishonest and Un-Christian thing to do.  Your actions have now threaten the trust and discipline that makes our Judicial system strong. In fact, this organization has never before witnessed such a blatant abuse of discretion by any Judge or Court in the land. To do so after our Open Letter to Judge Duryea, his recusal, and your appointment is inexcusable.

            We are not going to elaborate on your Judicial Misconduct, as most of our objections were noticed on our previous open letter to Judge Duryea. Many of the notifications and objection to Judge Duryea also pertain to you and your actions.  We therefore incorporate said open letter to Judge Duryea to this objection.  The fact that you deliberately used Judge Duryea’s erroneous and improper conclusion, in light of our notifications and submittal, is in itself evident of Gross Judicial Misconduct.  There is also sufficient evidence to indicate that your specific actions were a direct retaliatory act resulting from our prior January 15, 2017 “OPEN LETTER TO JUDGE JOHN E. DURYEA JR” and the subsequent complaint against him with the JUDICIAL QUALIFICATIONS COMMISSION.  Upon the disqualification of Judge Duryea and the reassignment by Administrative Civil Judge Alane C. Laboda to you, we discovered that Judge Laboda was a prior employee AND PARTNER of Henderson, Franklin, Starnes, and Holt, the law firm representing the Plaintiff/Counter Defendant in which you ruled in favor of.  We contend that this was intentionally planned.

             Did you ever hear about The Constitution of the United States? In that you have shown little regard for the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, we intend on disclosing these activities to the respected parties.  A willingness to abide by the Constitution is not hypothetical; it is, instead, a grave duty for an Officer of the Court such as you to perform.  In doing so, your actions have shown an utter lack of respect for the citizens of your community, and is a serious threat to the guarantees of our Constitution.  As such, we fully feel that you are not familiar with the Constitution of The United States that you have sword to uphold and protect.  We are therefore submitting a Complimentary Copy of said CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA for you to read and abide by.  We adamantly request that you pay attention to the First and Fourth Amendments of said Bill of Rights as they apply to your actions.
