SUMMARY: Procedural Due Process MUST/WILL (eventually) triumph over Developer profits
(judicial "thumb on the scale" (Donald Scott Kurtz) or not).
Overturning Brooklyn Lyceum Foreclosure case is simple (and inevitable).
no more judicial places to run to, baby, no more judicial places to hide*. (*=credits to law of unintended consequences and Martha and the Vandellas)
The Brooklyn Lyceum
had the Foreclosure Plaintiff
DEAD TO RIGHTS (eight years ago)

as case was statutorily abandoned
(more than 365 days from last date for defendant to answer to date of 1st motion)

based solely on the Plaintiff provided record that includes ... Plaintiff implying in motion papers (Oct 2009)
--attached to but not referenced by that Notice of Motion and
--swearing in documents sent to judge (but not filed with court) two years later (Nov 2011)
--and admitted to in papers filed (Oct 2012) in response to
--motion to dismiss complaint as abandoned (Oct 2012)
--and admitted to in oral argument (Oct 2012) the court denies occurred
--but that plaintiff admitted occurred in subsequent papers (Dec 2012)

that Defendants had not appeared or responded in any fashion prior to that initial Motion.
Judge Donald Scott Kurtz
BROKE THE LAW

to let the Plaintiff
continue statutorily abandoned case.

especially given that the Kurtz
used evidence the Plaintiff's
since suspended from the practice of law attorney
withheld in the original motion (Oct 2009)
(but provided to the court
when the motion was challenged (Oct 2012)).

It should be noted
that the years late evidence,
(proof of the Defendants having hired an attorney
who both negotiated an extension of time to answer (April 2008)
& served answers for the Defendants (??? 2009) on the now suspended attorney)

should have caused the judge who has been quoted as saying
“When a case is before me, I try to give it my full attention,” -and-
“Some judges would have just read the papers and signed them,”

to look to see if proper procedure was followed ...
i.e. was an appearing attorney ever served the Notice of Motion &
was that Notice of Motion and all subsequent notices of motions facially sufficient?
(one motion served notice to appear a decade in the past).
Judge Reinaldo Rivera
AIDED AND ABBETED Kurtz by:
--failing to address jurisdictional issues raised at oral argument
when Judge Reinaldo Rivera said
"we will get to the bottom of it"
& "the 2nd department has an excellent reputation"
-- making a decision that implicitly went outside the record to support a decision that explicitly went outside the record.
(thereby altering lower docket to insert a Defendant appearance when there was not one on the record.)
-- making up a fact (Oct. 17 comes after Oct. 26) to make it seem as if The Brooklyn Lyceum moved too late when there is never any "too late" date to vacate a decision for lack of jurisdiction (no dispute before the court).
-- using three prongs of a cited case to hurt the Brooklyn Lyceum and failing to address the one remaining prong (did the Plaintiff fail to serve the oredr in the timeframe specified by the court in the order) which was the thrust of the Brooklyn Lyceum defense to a contempt finding.
-- altering appellate record to make Defendant allege "intrinsic" fraud when Brooklyn Lyceum appellate papers clearly allege "extrinsic" fraud ... fraud which induces the court to act absent authority.
Judge Janet DiFiore
AIDED AND ABBETED both Kurtz and Rivera by:

-- failing to correct lower appellate court failure to address jurisictionalarguments raised at oral argument &
-- failing to address jurisdictional arguments raised in response to sua sponte motion by the court.
-- dismissing an appeal PRIOR to addressing jurisdictional arguments.
"JUST US" slips into "JUSTICE"?

Ruling threw Plaintiff
into retroactive jurisdictional traps:

-- Plaintiff's admitted failure to serve the Lyceum/Richmond attorney ANY papers.
-- Lower court granting relief not requested in notice of motion.
-- Lower court granting relief not available under statute cited in Notice of Motion.
-- Lower Court granting relief in motion where the referenced supporting documents are not attached/do not exist.
-- Lower Court granting relief in motion noticing parties to appear a DECADE IN THE PAST.
-- Lower Court premising a decision on TWO non-existent sworn statements.
CALLS TO ACTION:
Take POLL on judicial actions
VOTE
on cases for next papers,
SIGN
Affidavit about some 5th grader level logic,
APPEAR
when the covid crisis is done,
CONTRIBUTE
(case citation and opinions)
Then help program the Brooklyn Lyceum 2.0!
Pass judgment on Judges not smarter than a 5th grader!!
If a judge:
--can't figure out which is greater of two numbers or
--can't see that the Plaintiff noticed parties to appear a decade in the past or
--premises decisions on non-existent documents, i

how can you trust those judges with things that are complicated?
Take a look at some crystal clear STUPIDS and tell us what you think of a judge who would do these types of STUPIDS.
Crowd-Source legal citations
If you have a legal frame of mind, take a look at the dozen (and growing) brain-dead simple issues that do not allow for any judicial discretion.
We are seeking 100 citations (in any jurisdiction) to support each of the premises that will set the Brooklyn Lyceum free.
If you are first to subit an on point case (even if it contradicts our position), you will earn, if you leave your email address, one Brooklyn Lyceum Curatorial vote.
SIGN Affidavit!
You don't have to be a judge to see when a judge does a STUPID.
Review a couple of dates or a couple of lines in some documents or note the absense of a document from a short record and sign an affidavit that you swear to. Just the facts, no conclusions necessary.
Send us the affidavit(s) and, if they are true to form and content, you will earn some Lyceum street cred via curatorial voting rights you can use, transfer or exchange (ten (10) votes for each accepted affidavit and one (1) vote for each use of the affidavit in court papers).
Appear!, Spread the Word!
In addition to an affidavit, we believe that a watched judiciary tends to do its job more than an unwatched one.
To that end, if you appear at specified junctures, just as an observer, you will get twenty (20) votes.
Lastly, we may need to have fliers distributed at places out and about.
To that end, for each hour of flier distribution, you will get ten (10) votes.
COMING SOON
Keep this from happening.
The Lyceum was floored when Appellate Judge Reinaldo Rivera made up a fact (Oct. 17 is after Oct. 26) after stating at the Lyceum Oral Argument on Sep. 26, 2018, that the 2nd dept. would "get to the bottom" of things because "the 2nd dept. has an excellent reputation".
To stop this madness, we endeavor to review all (2018-2020) Appellate Oral Arguments and review papers and decisions to document such malfeasances and outright lies by the Appellate Court.
PASS JUDGMENT ON JUDGES WHO:
Ignore Jurisdictional challenges,
Grant motions on no notice,
Grant relief not requested,
Find Oct. 17 is AFTER Oct. 26 &
Retroactively alter docket for lender.
refuse to provide court reporter
commit perjury to appellate division

  • #1A - NOTICE TO APPEAR IN THE PAST : KURTZ


    The Plaintiff served a Notice of Motion on March 17, 2011 for all to appear a DECADE IN THE PAST, on April 18, 2001.


    Review a two page Plaintiff: NOTICE OF MOTION TO APPEAR A DECADE IN THE PAST.

    Review a two page Proof of Service : swearing notice of motion was served 10 years after hearing motion.

    An Affidavit about these STUPIDs we hope you will sign: Affidavit swears you saw a notice dated April 17, 2011 to appear on April 18, 2001, and, that you saw that service was sworn to have been done a decade after the noticed hearing..


    The inescapable result of the Judge Donald Scott Kurtz failure to do basic date checks reviewing the facially and jurisdictionally bad NOTICE OF MOTION and proof of jurisdictionally tardy service of the NOTICE OF MOTION is that the sale of the Brooklyn Lyceum is void, right from the start, or ab initio.

    Note: the date of the Notice of Motion, from the second page (March 17, 2011) or the vertical date-time stamp on 1st page (2011 MAR 17 AM 11:24) and the handwritten MOTION SUPPORT date on the lower part of the first page (3-17-11).

    Note: the date all were noticed to appear (lines 4-6 of page #1) : "the undersigned will move this court .... on the 18th day of April, 2001 at 9:30 a.m. ...".

  • #2A - APPELLATE COURT JUDGE FINDS 19 > 26: REINALDO RIVERA


    In order to rule against the Brooklyn Lyceum, Judge Reinaldo Rivera found that the Lyceum must lose because a cross-motion to have the case declared abandoned by Plaintiff inaction came after the entry of the Judgment of Foreclosure and Sale.

    The DECISION IS STUPID because it is makes a case the court was REQUIRED, by statute, to dismiss as abandoned by Plaintiff inaction
    can become unabandoned by further Plaintiff action combined with the Court's failure to follow the statute.
    The DECISION IS FLAT OUT WRONG on the simple, 5th grader math comparison of two dates.
    The Cross-Motion (October 19, 2012) came BEFORE, not AFTER the entry of the Judgment of Foreclosure and Sale (October 26, 2012).


    Review a line in a short Appellate Decision(Page 3 last Para, lines 2-3#): "The cross motion was untimely since it was made after entry of the judgment of foreclosure and sale "
    Review Motion Clerk date on the Cross-Motion (October 19, 2012) :
    Motion Support hand-written date: 10/19/12 AND adjacent datetime stamp of October 22, 2012

    Review Date-Time stamp on the Judgment of Foreclosure and Sale (October 26, 2012). Last Page DateTime Stamp: October 26, 2012


    An Affidavit about these STUPIDs we hope you will sign: Affidavit you saw that the datetime stamp of the Cross-Motion was BEFORE, not AFTER, the Judgment of Foreclosure.
