Judge David E. French Hearing

Judge David E. French Hearing

Thursday November 12, 2015 at 3:00 p.m.

Judge David E. French, Courtroom 2

200 West Atlantic Avenue, Delray Beach, FL 33444

Come to the hearing and experience the Florida Probate Court in action. Here is a Preliminary Statement from a Memorandum filed with the Court. I hope you can attend and witness this for yourself.

PRELIMINARY STATEMENT

Believing that he was entitled to a distribution of the Trust upon the death of Edward Halle and Elaine Halle (2007) in accordance with the Trust Document written in 1987, Jason Halle commenced an action against Peter Halle in 2011, some four (4) years after the Grantor’s wife, Elaine Halle’s death.

Peter Halle the trustee for the Edward Halle Trust, a well-established attorney in his own right, hired a very prestigious law firm in Miami, Florida (Richman Greer P.A.).  Prestigious or not, Jason Halle continued with his lawsuit after years of communicating with Peter Halle to no avail. After Jason Halle’s attorney, Nola Richardson presented a valid settlement proposal and Jason Halle waited one and a half (1.5) years to get an acknowledgement from anyone at Richman Greer.  With no distribution or explanation, Jason Halle saw no alternative.  While Jason Halle was a pro se litigant and not always as well versed as the attorneys, his claims were not without merit. They were however ignored.

Everyone refused to acknowledge that the Trust called for distribution upon death. It was not being distributed and Jason Halle’s extremely poor health demanded that distribution be made.  Eight years later his health has diminished and he has lost his beloved home.  Why? For just the desire of his brother, Peter Halle, to keep the money away from Jason Halle. He was backed up by ten (10) additional attorneys that he hired. That is exactly what was done. The attorneys are now asking to be compensated for their successful efforts to aid and abet their client Peter Halle’s violation of many Florida Statutes and to aid him in successfully disregarding the Grantor, Edward Halle’s very clearly written wishes.

After lying to the court by telling the judge that Jason Halle’s several amended complaints had been dismissed by the court (there were no dismissals), the court dismissed his last complaint with prejudice and now is considering awarding the attorneys of some $241,000 in attorney fees.

Re: Mr. Michael J. Napoleone; RFA No: 15-9614

Dear Ms. Maura Canter,

I am in receipt of your letter of December 10, 2014. Thank you for taking your time to respond to my serious concerns on behalf of The Florida Bar.

In your letter to me you stated, “The Florida Bar only has authority to investigate complaints to determine if an attorney has violated the rules governing attorneys and whether disciplinary action is warranted regarding the attorney’s license to practice.”

Ms. Canter, it was never my intention for The Florida Bar to change the outcome of anything that has happened in the Courts in the State of Florida. I know that this is not within the purview of The Florida Bar.

Mr. Michael J. Napoleone has allegedly violated six of the Florida Rules of Professional Conduct which were listed in the Bar Complaint that I filed on November 30, 2014. Under the Florida Bar Standards for Lawyer Sanctions disbarment is appropriate as I outlined in the Complaint.

I hope that the fact that the Defendant Peter Halle is a Florida Attorney, that Mr. Michael J. Napoleone is a Florida Attorney, that the Florida Attorneys at the Florida law firm of Richman Greer that worked on this case were licensed by The Florida Bar, that the Defendant’s wife and Successor Trustee of the Edward Halle Trust is Carolyn B. Lamm, a Florida Attorney and a Past President of the American Bar Association (2009-2010) and that I am a total nobody in the legal profession does not have any bearing on the actions of The Florida Bar.

Powerful people don’t need the protection of The Florida Bar. It is ordinary Florida residents that are being abused by Florida legal professionals licensed by The Florida Bar that are committing misconduct that are in need protection.

My family, friends and readers keep asking me why I don’t complain more vigorously to the Florida Bar about Mr. Michael J. Napoleone’s alleged misconduct. Everybody in Florida seems to believe that The Florida Bar will protect people from attorneys that lie to Judges in a Brief filed with the Appellate Court.

If you feel that Florida attorneys should be allowed to violate the Florida Rules of Professional Conduct that I have outline in my original complaint when involved in a case with a Pro Se litigant, I wish you would explain this to me and my readers so we may better understand how The Florida Bar exercises its investigational process when misconduct is alleged.

All that is necessary is for Mr. Napoleone to produce the court documents that support the statements that there had been multiple dismissals in the case in question before it was dismissed with prejudice. Since no such documents exist, he will not be able to do this and his guilt will be easily ascertained.

This letter is written with the utmost respect and confidence that The Florida Bar will do the next correct thing.

Very Sincerely,

Jason Halle

Re: Mr. George White, III; RFA No: 15-9437

Dear Ms. Maura Canter,

I am in receipt of your letter of December 9, 2014. I appreciate the time and effort you took to respond to my serious concerns.

In your letter to me you stated, “The Florida Bar only has authority to investigate complaints to determine if an attorney has violated the rules governing attorneys and whether disciplinary action is warranted regarding the attorney’s license to practice.”

Maura Canter, I am not asking the Florida Bar to change the outcome of anything that has happened in the Courts in the State of Florida. I know perfectly well that this is not within your mandate.

Mr. John G. White, III has allegedly violated six rules of the Florida Rules of Professional Conduct which were very well articulated in the Bar Complaint that I filed on November 22, 2014.

To think that an attorney licensed by the State of Florida can commit such obvious and serious misconduct on the Trial Court level, and then do it again on the Appellate Court level, especially when his opposition is a Pro Se litigant, is appalling to me and my readers. I certainly hope that the fact that the Defendant Peter Halle is a Florida Attorney, that Mr. John G. White, III is a Florida Attorney, that the Defendant’s wife, Carolyn B. Lamm is a Florida Attorney and is a Past President of the American Bar Association (2009-2010) and that I am a nobody in the legal profession does not have any bearing on the actions of the Florida Bar.

Powerful people don’t need the protection of the Florida Bar. It is ordinary Florida residents that are being abused by Florida legal professionals licensed by the Florida Bar that are committing misconduct that are in need of protection.

My readers keep asking me why I don’t complain to the Florida Bar about Mr. John G. White, III’s alleged misconduct. Everybody in Florida seems to believe that the Florida Bar will protect them from dishonest attorneys that lie to Judges and in Briefs to the Appellate Court.

If you feel that Florida attorneys should be allowed to violate the Florida Rules of Professional Conduct that I have outline in my original complaint when involved in a case with a Pro Se litigant, I wish you would explain this for me and my readers so we may better understand.

All you would have to do, is request that Mr. White produce the court documents that support his statements that there had been multiple dismissals in the case in question before it was dismissed with prejudice. He will not be able to do this, since no such documents exist.

This letter is written with the utmost respect and confidence that the Florida Bar will reconsider and do the correct thing.

Very Sincerely,

Jason Halle

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.

Hearings – June 16, 2015

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.

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

Writ of Prohibition

Petition for Writ of Prohibition

Writ of Prohibition to Disqualify Judge David E. French

A Petition for Writ of Prohibition was filed in the Fourth District Court of Appeal to disqualify Judge David E. French

On May 7, 2015, Jason Halle, Petitioner, filed a Petition for a Writ of Prohibition in the Fourth District Court of Appeal. The Petition for the Writ is to Disqualify Judge David E. French of the 15th Circuit Court in Palm Beach County. Judge French had signed an Order to Deny the Motion to Disqualify or Recuse Judge David E. French on April 22, 2015.

In a hearing on April 8, 2015, Judge French had started prejudging motions from the bench that had not yet been heard. The showed a strong bias against the Plaintiff and a strong positive bias for the Defendant.

It became clear that the Court had substantial prejudice against the Pro Se Plaintiff.

Jason Halle, the Plaintiff, has reasonable fear that he will not receive a fair hearing in Judge David E. French’s courtroom at the South County Courthouse in Delray Beach, Florida.

On April 8, 2015, I went to another hearing before Judge David E. French. I had the impression that Judge French was ranting at me while being very cozy with the opposing counsel.

In the hall outside the courtroom after the hearing, a person came up to me. They did not identify themselves. The person said to me, “I just want to let you know that it is obvious that at your next hearing Judge French is going to deny any motions you have for relief and grant all the motions your brother has for attorneys’ fees and sanctions.”

I thanked the person for their observations. Then I asked why they though this would happen?

“It’s obvious the opposing counsel is his buddy and the judge is prejudiced against you. What did you do to him?”

“I’m Jewish, gay, HIV positive, a cancer survivor and have a bad heart condition. All I have been doing is trying to obtain the inheritance that my dad left me eight years ago. My brother is a Florida attorney and the Trustee of my dad’s estate. My brother has already spent more than $200,000.00 in legal fees. I had to let my attorney go because I could not afford to pay her anymore and I have been forced to represent myself. I have no idea which of these things has Judge French so prejudiced against me.”

The stranger concluded by saying, “I just wanted to give you the opinion of someone that is not invested in your situation. You will get absolutely nothing in Judge David E. French’s courtroom. He has already made up his mind about everything.”

This was wonderful input, even though it is not what I wanted to hear. I went home and thought about it.

Yesterday on April 14, 2015, I filed the following motion with the Court:

IN THE CIRCUIT COURT FOR THE 15TH
JUDICIAL CIRCUIT IN AND FOR PALM
BEACH COUNTY, FLORIDA

CASE NO. 502011CPOO5095XXXXSB

JASON HALLE,
Plaintiff,

vs.

PETER HALLE,
Defendant.
__________________________ /

MOTION FOR DISQUALIFICATION OR RECUSAL

Plaintiff, Jason Halle, files this motion/affidavit/application pursuant to Rule 2.330 of the Rules of Judicial Administration, specifically Rule 2.330(d)(1) that the party fears that he or she will not receive a fair trial or hearing because of specifically described prejudice or bias of the judge. This motion/affidavit/application is also pursuant to Florida Statutes § 38.10, Disqualification of judge for prejudice; application; affidavits, etc. This motion/affidavit/application is also pursuant to Canon 3 E of the Florida Code of Judicial Conduct:

  1. My name is Jason Halle, I am over the age of eighteen and competent to issue this declaration. I am the Plaintiff in this action and make this declaration based upon my personal knowledge.
  2. I am a Pro Se litigant and certify that this motion/affidavit/application is made in good faith.
  3. In the transcript of the hearing held before the Honorable David E. French on April 8, 2015, (Exhibit 1), Judge French said on page 8, line 19, “Then he’s (the Defendant) going to be entitled to attorney’s fees. Now, the only issue is how much. That’s what the hearing is about.”
  4. Judge French has already prejudged the relief from his Order of May 31, 2013, that prohibits the Edward Halle Trust from paying attorney’s fees or litigation costs unless and until such relief is granted by the Court. (Exhibit A of     Exhibit 2).
  5. On February 11, 2015, the Plaintiff served his Response to Defendant Peter Halle’s Motion to Permit Payment of Attorney’s Fees and Costs from the Edward Halle Trust Assets. In his Response the Plaintiff cites case law that the Defense attorneys have waived their entitlement to attorneys’ fees under Florida Law. (Exhibit 2)
  6. Judge French has already prejudged the motions having to do with attorneys’ fees and punitive sanctions requested in the Defendant’s motions concerning attorneys’ fees.
  7. In fact there are a total of seven motions pending before the Court:
    1. Plaintiff’s Motion for Relief from Order of September 25, 2013
    2. Plaintiff’s Motion to Strike Paragraphs 1, 2, 3, 4, and 10 of Defendant’s Motion for Sanctions
    3. Plaintiff’s Motion to Strike Paragraph 10 of Defendant’s Motion to Permit Payment of Attorney’s Fees and Costs
    4. Defendant’s Motion for Fees and Costs
    5. Defendant’s Motion to Permit Payment of Attorney’s Fees and Costs
    6. Defendant’s Motion for Sanctions
    7. Plaintiff’s Motion for Sanctions on Defendant Peter Halle’s Motion to Permit Payment of Attorney’s Fees and Costs
  8. Judge French continues on page 8, line 24 of the transcript (Exhibit A), “Your motion – you have a motion for relief for what?”
  9. On page 9, line 1, Mr. Halle (Plaintiff) responded, “Based upon the fact that Mr. White made fraudulent statements and committed fraud upon the Court which influenced your decision during that hearing.”
  10. Judge French then said, “Well, we don’t reargue things that have already been – it’s called res judicata, okay? We don’t reargue the motions. I have already made a determination.”
  11. Judge French has prejudged Plaintiff’s Motion for Relief from Order of September 25, 2013. (Exhibit 3) This motion is still pending before the Court.
  12. The law of the case, res judicata and collateral estoppel are not relevant in this situation because the facts in this motion are different from the facts in the original Hearing and the subsequent appeal that was per curiam affirmed. This was a conflict PCA with no written opinion. Which facts the Appellate Court ruled upon are unknown and do not include the facts in Plaintiff’s motion. This would make the application of res judicata inappropriate and not viable.
  13. It is clear from Judge French’s statements that he has already prejudged the pending motions before the Court.
  14. It is clear that Judge French has a strong bias against the Plaintiff and a strong positive bias for the Defendant.
  15. It is clear that there is substantial prejudice against the Pro Se Plaintiff.
  16. The Plaintiff has reasonable fear that he will not receive a fair hearing.

Respectfully submitted,

 Disabled Florida senior becomes impoverished due to Fraud Upon the Court by Richman Greer Attorneys John G. White, III, and Michael J. Napoleone

By Jason Halle
April 2, 2015

Justice, Freedom, equal access to the law. None of these seem to be working for Jason Halle, a disabled senior citizen that resides in Wilton Manors, Florida, who is trying to collect his Florida inheritance left by his father, Edward Halle.

Jason’s father, knew his son Jason was legally disabled and was struggling with life threatening health issues each day of his life. Edward Halle wanted to be sure his son Jason had comfort and economic security after he and his wife Elaine Halle were gone. The documents that Edward paid his attorney Ronald Siegel of Boca Raton, Florida to create in order to accomplish this seem to be worthless.

Edward Halle named his older son Peter Halle to act as Trustee. He was proud Peter became an attorney and told Jason this would save on attorney’s fees and would make the process easier for Jason.

But the money Peter Halle was supposed to disburse to Jason never materialized. First there were excuses. Then a promise the money would be disbursed. Then years of Peter Halle ignoring Jason’s requests for his Florida inheritance. This has been going on since 2007.

Peter Halle is now a retired attorney. He was a partner in the famous Washington, DC, law firm Morgan Lewis. His wife is Carolyn Lamm, also a Washington, DC, attorney and a partner at White & Case. Carolyn Lamm is a past President of the American Bar Association and was voted one of Washington’s 100 most powerful women in 2011. Peter and Carolyn Lamm regularly had Senators and Congressmen to their Washington, DC, home and even Hilary Clinton had been a guest.

So why didn’t Peter Halle disperse the money or attend to the many other fiduciary duties that he was required to perform under Florida law? I would guess that when you are as wealthy and powerful as he and his wife Carolyn Lamm are, you start to believe that you are above the law.

In 2011, Peter Halle was still ignoring Jason’s requests for his inheritance. Two letters from attorneys that Jason hired to plead on his behalf had no success. Jason Halle decided he would need to find an attorney to take his brother to court and compel him to follow the laws of the State of Florida. One lawyer wanted a $60,000.00 retainer. All the other lawyers Jason interviewed were not interested in taking the case when they realized how powerful and connected his brother Peter Halle and his wife Carolyn Lamm are. Jason finally exhausted his legal resources.

Jason naively believed that this was an open and shut case and that the law was 100% on his side. Jason filed a Pro Se Complaint (without the aid of an attorney) against his brother in the 15th Circuit Court in and for Palm Beach County, Florida, on November 4, 2011. His brother Peter responded by hiring the Richman Greer law firm of Miami and West Palm Beach, Florida to represent him and fight Jason with every legal trick known to the profession in order to obstruct Jason from obtaining his Florida inheritance. Peter Halle kept ignoring the Florida laws that were designed to protect beneficiaries like his brother Jason. The whole defense of the lawsuit was frivolous and without merit or basis in law or fact.

Charles H. Johnson of the Miami office was hired back in 2008, so Jason could no longer contact his brother directly and had to go through Peter’s attorney. Then Michael J. Napoleone became involved in 2011, to represent Peter Halle in court. Then more attorneys became involved including John G. White, III. A whole law firm began fighting against Jason Halle to stonewall him from receiving his inheritance. I know this all sounds like fiction, but it is not. Court documents will substantiate all of the facts about the legal actions that ensued.

After almost two years of Jason spending days at a time in law libraries, writing legal briefs, motions and creating numerous other documents and after numerous court appearances Jason believed he was holding his own. Peter Halle did not appear once in court during the proceedings. Jason even won an appeal Peter’s attorney’s started in the Fourth District Court of Appeal of Florida regarding jurisdiction. Quite an accomplishment for a Pro Se litigant.

Fraud Upon the Court

Then the unthinkable happened. On August 28, 2013, John G. White, III of Richman Greer committed fraud upon the court. That is the legalese way to say he lied to the Judge during the hearing held on that date. As a direct result of those lies, the Honorable David E. French dismissed the case!

They now want Jason Halle to pay the legal fees of the attorneys that lied in court

Now Peter Halle’s attorneys have filed a motion to compel Jason to pay the Richman Greer legal bill of $200,000.00. That’s right, the court has dismissed the case and Peter Halle is now trying to stick Jason Halle with the $200,000.00 legal bill to pay his lawyers that won by lying in court to get the case dismissed. Jason still doesn’t have his Florida inheritance, and by dismissing the case the court has ruled that Peter Halle never has to pay Jason a cent of his inheritance as a result of the lies the Richman Greer attorneys told in court and wrote in legal briefs.

How can a person fight against such wealth, power and lies? Jason is still trying, but no attorney in Florida has offered to help him. No media outlet has offered to help let the public know about the injustice of the Florida legal system. Nobody seems to think it is unusual that the rich and powerful can produce any results they want in a court room and middle class people have no rights.
