Defendant Arrested for Pretending to be “Counsel” [Attorney Code 99500 = Pro Se Counsel]

In C[r]ook County Circuit Court, Dishonorable Judge Thomas Donnelly and the C[r]ook County State’s Attorney Devine have charged a pro se defendant with fraudulently presenting himself as an attorney because at the bottom of a pleading he wrote the attorney code 99500.  Court Clerk Dorothy Brown’s office uses this code to designate pro se counsel. The appearance form which is filed in every case in the Court’s Law Division specifically states that the “attorney code” for “pro se” = 99500. Someone needs to inform the judges about this. Divine and Donnelly should have their ignorant, incompetent faces plastered all over the press for this one.  When this case is resolved I’ll add to this post.

Please help Mr. Moore by writing and complaining to:
Hon. Timothy C. Evans
Chief Judge Circuit Court of Cook County
50 W. Washington, Rm 2600
Chicago, IL 60602

Hon. E. Kenneth Wright
Presiding Judge Municipal 1
Circuit Court of Cook County
50 W. Washington, Rm 1303
Chicago, IL 60602

States Attorney Richard Divine
Cook County States Attorney
50 W. Washington, Rm 500
Chicago, IL 60602

Please inform the press and urge them to cover this story! It proves how incompetent, corrupt, and unethical is our states attorney. It proves that he wastes government money harassing activists and whistle blowers such as myself and Mr. Moore.


  1. More was found not guilty of the other charges and this charge was thrown out after his attorney thoroughly embarrassed the judge by pointing out the above.

  2. Don’t you just hate judges and prosecutors? In a fairly recent Illinois Supreme Court case, In re Marriage of O’Brien, 2011 IL 109039, the justices had the audacity to say the JIB is well equipped to investigate judges. Anyone ever file a complaint with the JIB may as well save the ink and paper. Unless a judge is seen running down the halls of the courthouse naked chasing a women, he will not get any discipline at all. Judges get paid off by the person with the most money in any law suit. And when you don’t pay off a judge, you get to go to prison. Been there, done that.
