I appealed to the Second Appellate Court of Appeals for a
review of the lower Court's determination to restrict my ability to
present issues, and included at least one additional piece of evidence
that was not submitted to the Lower Court hoping to show "standing".

effort to secure counsel for her, no avail
We filed more than 17 motions to the court record and
attached videos showing my mother was not the cause for damages as the
initial filing stated.
All are denied yet remain on the court
record. However, the Second Appellate Court of Appeals twists
the initial Claim made by the Plaintiffs to the Court. Their
filing stated my mother "is the cause
for damages", the Appellate muddied the waters with their
interpretation "damages that occurred during (her

Plaintiff already won $4k+ from the same Clark County Municipal Court a
few weeks prior.
My mother and I went to the Clark County Municipal Court to file a
counter-suit. They accept money in exchange.
Counter Suit without our ability to actually file it. Of
course without refund, stating it to be
"untimely" and "without leave of court" (but it was the court
withheld our earlier 11/18/16 filing, without docketing the
motion until we
paid the fee to file a counter suit
). So the 11/18/16 motion
held for ransom and not filed
when placed in the care of the Court Clerk until 11/28/16 due to the
words in the last paragraph stating "...the defendant moves the court
to allow for a counter-suit... as seen on this page here
Municipal court doesn't wait for a decision from the appellate
and has trial anyway (with my mom unrepresented). That same
Municipal Court holds a Judge's Determination that
my mother is guilty of being the cause for damages. A Trial that
denies my attempts
to show evidence in the court (twice, including videos and a rental
receipt), then I was ushered out of the Court again. All in
all I suspect that I was in the Court Room for less than 20 minutes.

In other words, if the Lessor (Mrs. Crow) is party A, and I am Party B

When the laws that every judge and attorney is learned of (Basic
Rights) are skirted against the citizens that aren't judges or
attorneys, are not the former as criminals?
Which begs the question, if my education system barely touched on the
Bill of Rights, and our educational mandated curriculum sets what is
taught and not taught in the schools, are those that are in the know
not criminal when they choose to not enforce them for the good of the
citizenry (voluntarily doing so)?

p.s. Not only did I attach some of my evidences to the court record in
physical dvd's but also links to the videos so the fact that the court
record hides the exhibits, the links are written into the documents
submitted to the court record.
I hope you will consider my dilemma.
This is documented better here: http://www.springfield-ohio-post.com
If you don't mind redacted exhibits, the court's record is here:
Your Mom is next.
Imagine your neighbor is murdered and you are on trial for the murder
as the only suspect. Imagine my having taken videos of the real
murderer of your neighbor. How would you feel about my being told "NO
evidence allowed" in your case because I'm not a "party to the case"?
It's a different scenario now, isn't it? I'll tone it down for you:
Imagine your child is in the morgue and you are not only mourning but
are arrested for child abuse which you know you are innocent of. It
goes to trial and you lose knowing the whole time that I was with
evidences that would find you innocent. I'm on a roll, Imagine you are
hit in the head and wake up to find you've also been robbed and
stripped naked but that I have pretty solid evidence to show who the
mugger was. How would it feel to you that your attacker is free because
my evidence wasn't admissible (for failure to learn legalese in time to
save you from the courts?).
One last one: Imagine YOUR mom is accused of being the "cause" of
damages to a property. Imagine if YOU had Videos showing the old lady
they found guilty wasn't the one damaging the crow property. Imagine
YOU had rental receipts showing you were an integral part of the
lawsuit and the actual tenant at the time of the disasters, imagine you
possessed signed documents to and from the Crows (prior to any suit
ever having been filed against your mother, in which both parties
within the documents acknowledge that you, and not your mom, were the
tenant), imagine you had other witnesses that would have altered the
outcome and fate of YOUR mom, imagine you being denied to be in a
position to produce photos and videos showing what the condition of the
crow property was like when you arrived, imagine you had Videos and
photos taken of the Crow property during your tenancy, imagine you had
videos and photos showing the condition of the crow property when YOU
departed 1335 North Limestone Street in Springfield Ohio, imagine being
stripped of your first-person testimony, imagine you had more evidence
and were not allowed to present it in a court of law, not even to
defend your own mother by order of a Judge.
Only a plaintiff, defendant, or judge can compel evidence in these
courts. When I attempted to hold up evidence in court, Judge Thomas
Trempe waved me down, when I stated that my video evidences were in the
court room on that fateful day of December 1, 2016, the judge appeared
to be disinterested in regards to evidence. Judge Trempe reprimanded me
stating that my mother, who has never in her life ever received any
summons for anything, was now left to fend for herself without the
"benefit" of counsel, that it is up to HER to compel the evidence.
Early on in the Municipal Court Case against my mother, prior to
Pre-Trial, I filed two motions to the court; a "motion to intervene"
(naively assuming the english language was understandable to all of
us....who knew the courts would change the word "intervene" to mean
something else?), and a "motion to correct the record" (I'm not an
attorney and so I don't know the magic words, and my mom on the firing
block does not allow enough time to learn the volumes that an attorney
studies years to be proficient in, so "Motion to Correct the Record"
was the best I could do at the time allotted. Both Motions were denied
by Judge Trempe.
I promptly filed an appeal to the second appellate court of appeals but
then over 2 months after I filed with the appellate, the lower court
Judge went ahead and had Trial anyway. My mother was left without
counsel and was clueless as to what to say and do in there. Only my
mom's witnesses were sequestered leaving my mom to go up against the
Crow Attorney and Judge alone, the same judge that has Denied our over
17 motions to the Municipal Court Record (with exhibits, including this
video and about 4 others, not including other evidences and sworn
We even filed a Counter-Suit by the urging of the municipal court
clerk, I was sure the Appellate was a standard above the lower court
and took the bait....they took our money and then summarily denied the
counter-suit. It's tough in Springfield Ohio to try to be able to
obtain the justice we are told exists...the lower court denied my
ability to become a party and disregarded the 5 times in my motion in
which i state to be in possession of evidence (stated within my feeble
Motion to Correct The Record, which I believe was 2 pages of actual
content, so the mention of 5x stating to be in possession of evidence
is not easily missed). I stated to the Judge, the opposing counsel, of
course to the Crows, everybody was made aware that I have video
evidence showing my mom did not cause the damage and here it is 2 years
later, having to go to Federal Court to undo the bad unmistakable
mis-judgment of the Clark County Municipal Court.
My evidence, if permitted may have refuted any claim made by the Crows.
Clark County Municipal Court of Ohio went ahead and ushered the 70++
year old trembling woman into the Court room alone and had trial
leaving her to fend for herself. Judge Trempe decided to disregard my
appeal submitted to the Second Appellate and had the Trial a few months
after pre-trial knowing my mother would be without counsel (since
counsel quit after a meeting with the judge and opposing counsel
******p.s. Note to all Springfield Citizens, if your attorney leaves
you in the hall and walks into a back room with the judge and the
opposing attorney, be very afraid, and have a backup plan! My mom's
paid attorney emerged to state he'd not be representing my mom anymore
(not that he appeared interested in the case ...well, maybe at first,
when that $1k hit his bank, but as for the numerous calls and emails I
sent to him prior to pre-trial (none returned), it was a stone wall
with that guy.
The municipal court went ahead and had trial without allowing evidence
to be presented.
Five months later, after my innocent mother was told she is the cause
for damages and must give the crow's $4k++ for being the "cause" for
damages, five more months later the Appellate returned with a decision
to concur. This is a total breakdown of trust, concurred by the Court
of Appeals that an interested party (me) that has submitted over 17
motions to the court WITH EVIDENCES and EXHIBITS and has claimed over
and over to have more evidences, all denied by the Clark County
Municipal Court, and now the appellate concurs five months after the
trial stating my mom "did not file an appeal". We should hope for
better on the appeal? Really? Not allowed without the magic words that
only a trained attorney would know. The appellate concurred, but do
bother to read and understand the entire scope, see
http://springfield-ohio.com , concurred 5 months after the lower court
totally shirked the appellate division and went to trial anyway, to
keep me without the ability to show any of my evidences, this is not
Part of me is very disheartened to see the stark reality of the
apparent crumbling system that is in our midst right now. Nobody should
have to go through this much trouble just to show evidence to save a
loved one (or anyone!) against what seems like a not-to-be-trusted
They found my 70++ year old mother guilty of damaging ceiling tiles and
carpet. Do you see my mom doing any such thing in the video, taken
while damages were occurring ?
sorry about the rambling....I'm very frustrated and pessimistic right
now (thinking about how your mom is next).
