I am unable to find representation to help me sue a judge…

I am unable to...

I am unable to find representation to help me sue a judge who sexually abused me. Everyone claims "conflict of interest," including rape advocacy groups. I've been trying for almost a year. I finally drafted my own demand letter and sent it to him. He ignored me. I want to file an administrative complaint with the City because Chicago Police knew and failed to arrest him on numerous occasions. I have police reports and photos the police took of my battered body. he continued to harrass me for five years after I left him, up until December of last year. I know I only have one year to bring a claim against the city and county and I have to act fast. Without an attorney, where do I go? Can I just send my original demand letter, with the detailed chronology of what he did, evidence, etc, with a cover letter to city and another to the county, demanding relief?

Lawyer's Assistant: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?

Chicago, Illinois. The abuse went on until November of 2010 and the harassment until last December. I know that I can show it was a continuous tort.

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

There are police reports. I reported the sexual assaults to police and there are reports of the batteries and photographs as well.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

No thanks

Hi and thank you

Have you reported the judicial misconduct to the State Bar Association? If local law enforcement will not assist you, you will want to contact the Attorney general of Illinois and the Department of Justice. Have you contacted the Judicial misconduct to the ARDC?

I have not. So I should contact the Illinois attorney General?

None of this abuse is with related. I was on a relationship with him. He is my neighbor.

"None of this abuse is with related. I was on a relationship with him. He is my neighbor." What would you be reporting?

Let me provide all of the contacts. The State Bar Association can provide a reputable Attorney to assist you,

Sorry for the typos. Typing on phone

Thank you for the clarification. No worries about typos.

Then these complaints and the State Bar referring a reputable Attorney that is not afraid of suing a Judge is the way to go.

This is the Judicial complaint for an investigation form https://www2.illinois.gov/sites/jib/documents/download%20materials/complaint%20against%20a%20judge.pdf

should I point blank request an attorney who isn't afraid of suing a judge?

I will provide that next. This is a link for the Attorney General. http://www.illinoisattorneygeneral.gov/

I would ask to speak to an investigator from that office as the Attorney General is the top law enforcement official in the State. The AG has the power to prosecute the judge.

do you think I should call or write the attorney general at that police reform email or number and say i need a lawyer

I think you should contact/CALL the AG first and see if they will investigate the Judge. They can also assist with civil rights Attorneys. I provided a link for a firm above.

There is a culture of corruption that has existed long before I was licensed thirty years ago. These Judges need to be held accountable and every once in awhile I see justice. I would like to see if your case.
