Overcoming Louisiana "Justice" in Federal Court
Organized by: Christopher Taylor
In US courts, a judgment made without following due process is null, void, and has no legal effect. While representing myself, I was given 14 days to file an argument/objections in Civil Action No. 1:12-cv-01756-JTT in the Western District of Louisiana, but Judge Trimble made his judgment after only 10 days. After researching possible solutions, I filed a motion to set aside the judgment, but the court did not. I appealed this decision and the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled I waited too long (2 months) to motion the court to set aside the judgment. I am hoping to hire a lawyer to have this illegal judgment set aside. The funds I am requesting are to pay retainer fees. The case is about the onset date of my Social Security Disability. I have spinal stenosis and other injuries, resulting from trauma (auto accident). The Louisiana Social Security Administration disagreed with the amount I would receive monthly and chose an arbitrary date 4 years after the accident. I appealed the onset date but my attorney dropped the case(I think it was because he already received the most he could because of legal restrictions). I am in constant pain, and clinically depressed. This fundraiser would help me find an attorney and, quite literally, it will save my life.
