Judge David E. French Courtroom in Delray Beach, Florida

Judge David E. French Courtroom in Delray Beach, Florida

The hearing on June 16, 2015, went exactly the way Judge French had prejudged it would during the hearing on April 8, 2015.

My motion for relief was denied. My attempt to question the Richman Greer attorneys about the lies that were told in Court on August 28, 2013, was not allowed despite the law stating that in allegations of Fraud Upon the Court there should be an evidentiary hearing to determine the truth.

If Judge David E. French had allowed such a hearing or granted the motion for relief both John G. White, III and Michael J. Napoleone from the law firm of Richman Greer could have been brought up on charges of misconduct. Judge David E. French was not going to let that happen to his colleagues.

So, in fact it did boil down to how much of my brother’s attorney’s fees I would have to pay.

I kept telling Judge David E. French, My father left me a quarter of a million dollars, I came to this court for help to collect it. This court has never denied that my brother owed me a quarter of a million dollars or that he has broken a dozen Florida laws and been in Breach of Trust for eight years.

Judge David E. French admitted that this was all true.

Judge David E. French was not moved. Just as he had prejudged on April 8, 2015, all he cared about was determining how much my brother’s attorneys would collect for getting the case dismissed despite the fact that there was no reasonable explanation as to why the case was really dismissed. It certainly was not in accordance with the way I read the case laws of Florida.

The positive things that came out of the hearing:

  1. Judge David E. French ruled the attorneys from Richman Greer could not collect fees for their work on the appellate portions of this case.
  1. The request by my brother’s attorneys that I be personally liable for all the fees because they claimed this case was frivolous and without merit was denied.

There also has been no resolution in this case that requires my brother, Peter Halle, a Florida attorney, to stop violating Florida laws or to distribute any of the money my father left to me.

A Hearing before Judge David E. French

was held on

Tuesday, June 16, 2015 at 2:00 p.m.

Hearing on June 16, 2015

Hearing on June 16, 2015, before Honorable Judge David E. French

The hearing before Judge David E. French was held on:

Tuesday June 16, 1015, at 2:00 p.m.

South County Courthouse, 200 West Atlantic Avenue, Courtroom 2

Delray Beach, Florida 33444.

There already had been Orders that stated that there will be NO consequences for Peter Halle, a Florida Attorney, that has violated about a dozen Florida Statutes (laws) and has been in breach of Trust for about eight years.

The Appeal Court has decided that there has been no prejudice involved in that ruling even though I still don’t have my inheritance and the ruling allows my brother Peter to keep the money. All of the attorneys involved just keep focusing on the fees they are getting and that they have protected one of their own.

The bias against this Pro Se litigant is immense. This whole court action seems to have degenerated into how to save the Defendant, a Florida Attorney who was in Breach of Trust for eight years and who had violated a dozen Florida Statutes. The goal being that he have no negative consequences for his unlawful actions.

Then the next objective of the Court was not to allow any evidentiary testimony that would confirm that John G. White, III of Richman Greer law firm in West Palm Beach and Miami was guilty of misconduct for committing Fraud upon the Court. More Florida attorneys escaping negative consequences of their actions.

Now the victim, Jason Halle, is being told that according to Judge French’s ruling the Defendant Peter Halle can keep the money and Jason will have to pay one half of the Defendant’s legal fees!

Judge David E. French agrees that the Court never found that Peter Halle was not in Breach of the Trust. He also agreed that the Court never found that Peter Halle was not in violation of the many Florida Statutes in the Complaint.

Judge French never stated that John G. White, III of Richman Greer in West Palm Beach and Miami had not committed Fraud Upon the Court.

Judge French knew that Jason Halle is gay, has been HIV+ for 36 years, has a heart condition, is a cancer survivor three times and ran out of money while trying to get his brother to disburse his inheritance according to the terms of the Trust Document.

It seems to make sense why Judge David E. French is bias towards all of the Florida attorneys involved. He knows them. The Defendant’s wife, Carolyn B. Lamm, is a past President of the American Bar Association (2009 – 2010). They are all members of the same powerful club that reaches all the way back to Washington, DC.

I have always paid my taxes and tried to do the right and honest things in my life. I am naive, because I do not understand were all of the negative bias towards me is coming from. I expected justice from the Palm Beach Circuit Court.

All of the motions had been prejudged at a previous hearing. A Motion to Recuse had been Denied. A Petition for Writ of Prohibition had been denied. Everything ended up going down exactly as Judge David E. French had previously prejudged.

Is this a situation about powerful organizations protecting their own? Rich, powerful, politically connected lawyers and a gay, HIV+, Jewish, senior citizen with limited resources.

Everyone should be interested. If the courts are willing to do this to me, you can be sure they will be willing to do this to you.

Richman Greer Attorney tries to influence Judge

John G. White of Richman Greer is trying to influence Judge French

John G. White of Richman Greer is trying to influence Judge French

A letter that I wrote to Judge David E. French yesterday pretty much sums up what Mr. John G. White, III of Richman Greer is attempting to accomplish.

There is still a Petition for Writ of Prohibition in the Appellate Court that has not been decided.

Mr. White seems anxious to try to push things forward quickly before any ruling from the Appellate Court so that he will not lose a Judge that is prejudging motions in his favor.

Here is the letter I wrote:

Dear Judge French,

This morning Mr. John G. White, III of Richman Greer sent you a letter asking you to sign a proposed Order Scheduling a Special Set Hearing on “all pending motions” for Tuesday, June 16, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. reserving two hours for same. (Copy Enclosed)

Mr. White neglected to inform you that on May 31, 2015, he was served with a Motion to Stay Further Proceedings in the Lower Tribunal. (Copy enclosed)

Mr. White further neglected to inform you that I had sent him an email on May 31, 2015, informing him about the UMC hearing on June 16, 2015, and that according to your suspension calendar you would not be available the week before. (Copy enclosed)

The hearing at your UMC has already been noticed and the Notice has been filed. (Copy enclosed)

In the proposed Order sent to you by Mr. White, it would make it impossible for me to comply with the requirements for submission of all relevant pleadings, etc… to be in your Court 7 days prior to the hearing.

I am not in agreement with Mr. White’s proposed Order and believe it would be in violation of the Florida Rules of Appellate Procedure.

Thank you very much.

Very respectfully,

Jason Halle, Pro Se
