The Professional Responsibility had found no clear and convincingevidence of these allegations. They did not send forward to the Board
Member that investigates if it should be investigated the evidence of Transcripts and Medical Records that prove the allegations. Also when the Board member found reasons of Rule 1.2 and 1.4 they only investigated his examples he was giving to look for in the complaint not the total of the full case. I appealed this to them and it has now gone back to the Board Member and hopefully with the evidence.
Then I called the Minnesota State Supreme Court to file a complaint
on their lack of investagation of the evidence. The Commissioner
told me I ould file a complaint!
So I wrote a exellent letter to each Justice about what the Professsional Responsibility had not investagated at the same time
used the opportunity to explain what the situation my niece has been
in with her court appointed attorney and the prosecutor that has
proven in court transcripts he was out to get her and had made this
civil committment with help from her court appointed attorney giving her no Due Process through 11 months not objecting once in that
time frame! I sent 7 certified copies to each Justist.
What do you think they will do? I don't they can ignore it I was complaining to them how the professional responsibility did not do a complete investagation and this office was the only office that could
protect her rights because her attorney did not allow for her rights. So they all now know there is a women being held against her will in the
State hospital that had no Due process which is against what the
US Constitutional States to be able to take your liberties. The State
Supreme Court has stated they do not make the laws, they make
sure the laws are followed and used within the US Constitution and
Equal Protection of Laws are given! It really was a perfect opportunity to get this information to the Minnesota State Supreme
Court. Minnesota has a US Federal Lawsuit about this same issue
they have held sex offenders even not violent or ever were charged
in a Hospital. We have 700 people locked in hospitals here a Federal
Judge ordered a plan of release of these people who meet the less
restrictive critera to be moved to a less restrictive place. So i am sure
this letter of my niece' civil committed when not meeting the criteria.
Pleas give me your honest belief on the actions I have taken and
what do you think could possibly would they my do?
Thanks for your input!!!!
the investagation of the proffesional responsibility is not complete I have
appealed this clear and convincing findings because of the evidence did point out the actual evidence and her actions of being ineffective andnegligent of protecting her client many times it all was in the transcripts and medical records, They did not look at the evidence, That is why I filed the complaint to the Minnesota State Supreme Court. How can you have a fair investigation without using the evidence I submitted with my complaint on the court appointed attorneys misconduct and the evidence to prove clear and convincing!
last question, What would the action of the state be on such a horrible
turn out for her clients liberties for 2 years, Would the state also be
liable for her actions. We can file malpractice but this seems to be
a criminal act for causing a person to be locked in a hospital because of
her intentional non practice of the laws? What could the state do to her?
It seems that the lawyer never faces anybody about her actions and
non actions she took and did not do her job on giving her client her
legal rights to protect her from this type of action.
The State Supreme Court is the highest court in the state, if they see
this happening would they not find out why this even happen?
