So a minor with alcohol is corruption and greed 23 years later. Little bit of a stretch don't you think. Even in my place of employment, we do backgrounds and try to hire quality people, but don't think for a minutes we have a work force of people who were all saints during their teenage years. Pretty serious words to be throwing around.

There had been a request wanting to know the status of "how my appeals were working out" by one of the cop trolls in here. So I thought I would update you all. The appeal is going fantastic. The appellate brief I filed showing that the Springboro City Attorney, in collusion with Warren County Judges, were violating Civil Rights of Citizens up to and including violating a Citizen's Right to Due Process was finally answered by Timothy Tepe, the Springboro City Attorney.
In his response to the brief, he ever so cavalierly acknowledges that the City and County violated the Due Process Rights of a Citizen by ignoring a demand for a Jury Trial, holding a bench trial, and simply finding me guilty without benefit of proper jurisprudence.
This should not shock anyone. This is not a search for justice, it is a continual money-hunt. There is no safety involved in the Policing of Springboro, it is simply a concerted effort to gain illegal revenue for the City and County.
In acknowledging the blatant miscarriage of justice that was purposefully executed, they have lost the appeal before it started. There is no question to throwing out the case.
This also has opened the way for a multi-million dollar lawsuit that will be filed early 2014, for Civil Rights Violations. Unfortunately, it is YOU, the taxpayers who will lose that money to pay off the debt incurred by YOUR Elected Officials.
I would like all of you to keep this in mind the next voting cycle. If you do not want to keep watching your hard earned tax dollars going to waste to pay for the purposeful "mistakes" of your Elected Officials, I would suggest that you immediately call for the firing of Chief Kruithoff, ALL Officers who have been supportive of his illegal tactics, ALL City Council Members who have been in Council for more than 4 years (for ignoring this problem and allowing it to continue.), the useless Mayor and City Manager who not only ALLOWED this to continue, but ENCOURAGED it, and call for the immediate resignation of both Timothy Tepe and the Springboro Law Director who constantly deflect blame away from those who seek to destroy tour Rights.
The time has come to stand for something, it to end up with higher taxes and less services to pay for the corruption of those you have allowed to Rule over you and keep you in fear.

Sir WOW,
My comment was based on this thread as a whole not what you narrow mindedly thought. Please, for the sake of your genetic pool, keep your trolling thoughts to yourself.

Well, we can add another $180 of actual damages to the case against the City of Springboro, for a days lost wages to visit the 12th District Court of Appeals.

Upon arrival for oral arguments for the appeal, we waited for the previous case to be taken care of. Then as my case was called, it was a simple mater of the Justices acknowledging that the City had conceded the point of the Jury Trial being demanded and then subsequently ignored.

Tim Tepe attempted a lame ass excuse for the violation of Due Process Rights. But, in the end I was told by the Honorable Judges that I SHALL have my Jury Trial.

Updates to follow as we sludge through the corruption that is the Springboro/Warren County System of Corruption.

But, finally at least we know where the Honorable Judges end up. Too bad it is not at the initial level, but at the Appeal level, money could be saved avoiding Malicious Prosecutions.

Judge berates Clearcreek Twp. officials for secret meetings

Resident sues trustees for preplanned talks behind closed doors
Jan. 31, 2014

Cincinnati.com

LEBANON — A Warren County judge on Friday lambasted Clearcreek Township officials for holding what could be viewed as illegal secret meetings.

“Frankly, I’m going to warn you right now: Don’t operate this way any longer,” Common Pleas Court Judge James Flannery told township officials.“You brought on a litigation that was totally unnecessary.”

Testimony wrapped up Friday in the two-day trial in which township officials are accused of violating the Ohio Open Meetings Act by holding prearranged, informal meetings in Administrator Dennis Pickett’s office a half-hour before the public session to discuss agenda items and other matters.

The law requires that public officials take official action and conduct all “deliberations upon official business” only in open meetings unless the subject matter is specifically exempt by law. It defines meetings as any prearranged discussion of public business that includes a quorum of the public body

At issue in this case is whether discussions held between a majority of the three-member board during the gatherings qualify as deliberations.

“The issue is, did they do it? And it sounds like they did it. Now I need to know, what are they doing behind closed doors?” Flannery said.

He also cautioned the township’s administrator:“If you want to talk to any of (the trustees) individually, don’t involve this court. Talk to any of them about any topic you want to talk about. You get two of them in the same room, though, you have problems.”

Resident Jack Chrisman sued the township and trustees in 2011, saying those “pre-meeting meetings” violate state law because public business was being discussed by a majority of the three-member board.

The public was not invited, nor did trustees give notice of the meetings or file minutes of what was discussed, his suit alleges

Flannery initially tossed out the case at the request of the township, saying there was no evidence the trustees were conducting formal deliberations at the meetings.

Chrisman appealed the case and won. Judge Robert Ringland of the Ohio 12th District Court of Appeals wrote that Flannery improperly dismissed the case because there were too many unanswered questions about the meetings.

John D. Smith, an attorney representing the township, argued that while agenda items may have been discussed at the open-door meetings, the unscheduled gatherings were merely “fact-finding” sessions and no deliberation took place

Flannery ordered both sides to submit their closing arguments by Feb. 14, after which he will issue his ruling.

No no.. Judge Flannery is no friend of the people, he tried to throw this case out. However Judge Robert Ringland is a stand up guy.
Flannery was forced to act like he gives a shit because a higher court ruled against his decision to toss the case.
Small town corruption is alive and well in Warren County.

Thank you, GB&U. In re-reading the timeline, you are correct. It doesn't surprise me that Ringland is a good guy. I actually found all 3 Judges on the 12th Circuit Court to be very diligent in finding facts, and asking pertinent questions (from sitting through the case before mine). All 3 Judges struck me as intelligent individuals who were out to find the actual truth, and implement the Laws as intended and as written.

The lower (and I do mean LOWER) Courts are as crooked as they come. I will add a single caveat to that statement, however. The older lady in the Warren County (traffic) Clerk of Courts Office. She was VERY helpful with my case from start to finish. She gave all required documents that I asked for, and paid for, without so much as a single question of why. She knows her job and does it to the best of her ability.

I have been through the traffic courts in Kettering, and can only tell you I would rather masturbate with a cheese grater than have any conversation with those dolts in the Clerks Office. They are consistent in NOT doing their job, constantly questioning what a Citizen is doing, and some of the rudest tripe I have ever had the misfortune to deal with.

Kettering (Clerk) actually had the gall to tell me I had to pay my fine IN FULL on the day I left Court if I intended to file an appeal! I told her I had 30 days to decide to file an appeal or not, she "corrected" me by telling me if I decide to file an appeal, I HAVE TO PAY IT IN FULL NOW.

Getting a copy of any of the Court proceedings, or a copy of the cost break-down is met with a "Why do you need that?"

But, getting pack to my praise of the Clerk in Warren County.....She was an absolute delight. Her attitude was professional at all times, and she always had a smile on her face. As a Pro Per defendant, I actually had to have a runner file my appellate brief. And my runner was there to drop off the brief, and another clerk was trying to tell her that she had to take it to 12th District directly. My runner stated that she was just told, by me, to drop it off there. The elderly lady stepped right in and said who is it for, my runner stated it was for Mr. Fader, and she immediately told my runner, "I will take care of it and make sure it gets filed immediately."

This kind of grace and dedication is not found in most of society's workplaces. This lady is a true diamond in the rough. I give her the highest praise I can. And should she happen to read this, all I can say is thank you VERY much for your honor and integrity, and I am saddened that a job such as yours has you surrounded by the scum of the Earth that has been placed on the bench in Warren County.
