Note to Judge Knierim who remarks 'The system works".

The system doesn't work when Judge Hopper takes a year and a half to make a decision and chastizes the daughters for acting badly.

Solution Number One for the system: Judge Knierim should rule that Judge Hopper can not act in any cases in any year that has a 2 in it!

Solution Number Two for the system: Implement a system where the court can order the sisters to reimburse their mother for all the expenses she incurred! At the end of the day she should be made whole and Railes and Higgins should be made to pay her back for their illgotten scheme!

Again, this is no different than the
Lawyer racket in probate that involved
those two lawyers from Hartford Probate years ago. People have been brainwashed into believing that lawyers seek justice. Lawyering has become an industry that given the right places can become very profit-a-ble racket with no justice.
The RICO law should be used in this instance as this crosses state lines.
A movement to remove lawyers from running for public office should become a law, as they have taken advantage of rules and regulations not available to the average person.
Time to give a Wake-up call to the
citizenry..

Amen...to Rick's last line. He has hit the nail on the head, exactly. If it wasn't for his writing on this case, getting someone to notice and take action, Marilyn Plank would still be waiting for a judgement well into 2009, if ever.

I agree with the comments about Hopper
and the lawyers, the daughters and anyone else involved in the 'fleecing'
of poor Marilyn Plank..and, is she "home" in Michigan and enjoying her life and her family?
I would like follow up for these poor
victims and actually see if juctice
pevails.
Can we change the laws to hold the guilty, judges included, accountable yet? And, if not, why not??
Reminds me of Nixon's, "if the president does it--it's not illegal"
Since when, did the Constitution have a separate set of rules for citizens of the United States??
Judicial accountability is a farce!!

his case. First, four of seven of Marilyn's children where aware of and approved the move to The Greens of Greenwich. Second, during the year of court proceedings, numerous hearings were held, with the Court permitting out-of-state children to participate by phone. The basis for the petition as first submitted by Mr. Margenot changed from a lack of finances to where did the protected person suffering from demetia wish to live. While Marilyn expressed to many people several places she wanted to live, her understandingly desire to return to her home was not possible due to her need for 24 hour care. That is why she is not "home for the holidays" but is living in another assisted living facility in Farmington Hills, not her home town of Franklin. As she was at The Greens, she is not living at "home" but at facility that meets her needs she did not receive under the care of her daughter living in her Franklin home. Finally, the "flurry of motions" were simply requesting the Court to hold a hearing to make sure the requirements of the Court's ruling were followed. Get your facts straight, and quit misleading your readers.
