Sun Life Financial - Theft

BEWARE OF SUN LIFE FINANCIAL THEY WILL STEAL YOUR MONEY. THEY ARE THIEVES. THEY HAVE NO "CUSTOMER SERVICE" BECAUSE THEY JUST DON'T CARE! My mother is 96. She opened a Money Market Account 3/21/1991 for $18,219.08. This account was valued at $26,670.43 on 2/20/2000. We closed an insurance policy in January with a value of less than $13,000. Sun Life emailed me today that this was my mother's original investment with all interest included! This of course is a lie. Despite many promises to return my calls and emails, they have avoided discussion of my Mom's policy. It is awful the way they have treated my mother and I and I really resent it.

Saint Agnes Hospital - Avoid at all costs

cy and Evicesileen Raymond and Tony Raymond 973 Circle Drive Baltimore, MD 21227 (410) 247-**** COMPLAINT AGAINST MEDICARE AND ST. AGNES HOSPITAL 1. This complaint is in behalf of my mother, Eileen Raymond. She is 96 years old, resides with me, and her DOB is 6/8/1923. Her SS# is {{Redacted}}. Anthony Raymond is a permanent resident of 973 Circle Drive, Baltimore County, Maryland, and has lived there since 1965. 2. On 1/15/19 my mother had a fall. She was sent to St. Agnes. Six hours later I called to inquire about her condition, and the room number and telephone number. I was told she was being admitted, and to call in an hour. When I called I was connected to the 4th floor. The nurse said they had no record of my mother even being in the hospital. I spent the next hour talking to a variety of people before being connected to the head nurse of that floor. I think her name was Carol Gallagher (?). I asked for her room and phone number. She said she refused to give that to me, and if I want that information I had to drive to the hospital. I spent another 45 minutes before being connected with a nurse who physically walked to that building to get my information. I subsequently made that day a formal complaint/grievance about that nurse. 3. Within 5 days my mother began to complain about her treatment, specifically her legs. She said they refused to provide any exercise or therapy, and now she could not move them. I nade a complaint to administration that day, and they set up a meeting with her doctor. He told me they had a room waiting for my mother at Charlestown. I said great, and please send her there today. He insisted or another tests for her wrist. I told him our concerns about her legs were more important. I called Charlestown that day. They confirmed that a room was being held, but could not understand why my mother had not been sent. Finally, despite my continued protests, my mother was sent to Charlestown eight days later. When she was sent her legs were totally immobile. It is important to note that prior to her treatment at St. Agnes, my mother was totally independent, even driving and shopping by herself. Although she suffered no damage from the fall to her legs, now she could not walk because of St. Agnes negligence. 4. On 3/1, she was discharged from Charlestown. Upon discharge she walked only with a walker, and then a cane. She now could not drive, or shop, nor can she now many months later. 5. On 8/5 my mother had another fall. She was sent to St. Agnes. Five hours later a nurse called and said my mother ready to return home. She asked how long I would be. I told her within 15 minutes. She said to meet her at the ER entrance. When I arrived as scheduled, my mother was waiting unaccompanied by anyone. There was neither a doctor,a nurse, or even paperwork with her. She had been given a sling. My mother asked me to remove it, so she could sleep more comfortably. I asked if she had been given directions. She said she was just told to wear it going home. She never again wore this sling. She complained about severe pain. I gave her Advil, since she had not been given any prescription medications. She remained in severe pain. 6. On 8/21 my mother had another fall. However this time she was extremely disoriented. She insisted she call the police. I allowed her to do so. She told the police I had glued her to the bed leading to her fall. She was sent to St. Agnes. Five hours later, a doctor called me and told me to come get my mother. I reminded him that since she was unable to walk, and was delusional, how could I transport her home. He asked me if we had seen the orthopaedic specialist. I asked him for what. He said, you know, her broken shoulder. I was livid. I told him we had no knowledge of a broken shoulder. He said. oh, I guess we will do more tests. 7. A few hours later a nurse called me, and said my mother also had a urine tract infection, and it would be necessary to keep my mother as a patient, especially because of her age. The nurse said all I would have to do at present was to talk to her primary care doctor, and the St. Agnes social worker. I said I would call the doctor, and asked if I was to call the social worker. She said it was not necessary as she would call me. 8. On 8/23 I gave up waiting for the social worker. I called that department and was refused an appointment, or even a call to that person. They told me to go to the nurses station at my mothers floor. At 12:45 I arrived and requested that appointment denied to me. Finally at 3 pm, another nurse came to my mothers room. She apologized, saying she knew nothing about my mothers condition, but she sent by the social worker to get me to choose 3 rehab facilities. I asked when I would have to make this decision. She said immediately. I told her this was improper as I was only familiar with one facility on this entire list. 9. On 8/26 I finally got a call from the social worker. She told me I had to call Don at Summit Park. I asked why. She said my mother was already sent to them, and I had to arrange payment of $2500 for the first 10 day stay. I reminded her that this year she had spent weeks in St. Agnes, and 5 or 6 weeks at Charlestown, and all of her bills were covered by Medicare and CareFirst. She said that was how her doctor at St. Agnes admitted her. At no time was I ever informed by anyone at St. Agnes that she was put in observation status, and apparently not admitted. 10. On 8/27 I drove to Summit Park and paid $2500. Thereafter, I called their so-called patient advocate to make a complaint and grievance. He finally returned my call on 9/2, six days later. I complained about her billing and status. He informed me that he would talk to a doctor. I told him that I wanted to make a formal grievance. Four weeks later he finally got back to me only because Richard Pomerantz told him to call me. I have never received ANY written confirmation of my complaint, which I have told I am entitled to. 11. In August I called Medicare. They told me to call CareFirst. Carefirst tells me to call Medicare back. Medicare tells me to complain to Livanta (866-532-****, which I did. This was another waste of time. After making a complaint to Loretta, I tried 22 times to return a call, leaving messages about 10 times. She never returned any calls. 12. In September, I again called Medicare. Now I am told they are obliged by the hospitals records how my mother was classified. They said if she was placed as admitted, all bills would have been covered. They said her status should be reclassified by St. Agnes. I was told to call first the patient advocate, which I already did, and then the person in charge of the ER department. I called the following: Head of Nursing at ER, Sue Mathers 667-234-**** Head of Physicians at ER, John Faulk 667-234-**** Head of all the doctors at St. Agnes Richard Pomerantz 667-234-**** CEO of St. Agnes Christopher Chekoris 667-234-**** Pomerantz refused to speak with me. All of the others I spoke with. Each expressed their concerns and apologized for my mothers treatment. All said they would get back to me. All did nothing. 13. St. Ages is clearly guilty of malpractice and neglect. Their negligence in January has resulted in permanent disability to my mother. On August 5, we were never informed about her broken shoulder. They didnt even give her pain pills. Only 16 days later did we learn of her condition. This would be considered awful treatment even in a third world country. We were never informed at any time she was under observation. I only learned this after she was sent to Summit Park. 14. How could a 96 year old patient with an unreported broken shoulder, and a urine track infection be considered under observation? Most doctors would know that a UTI at that age is particularly dangerous, and can easily be considered life threatening 15. I request that her status be reclassified, and that we be reimbursed for the $2500 we had to pay Summit Park, due to the outrageous treatment by St. Agnes.

The Maryland Commission on Judicial Disabilities - Avoid at all costs

BEWARE OF TANYA BERNSTEIN AND THE STATE OF MARYLAND COMMISSION ON JUDICIAL DISABILITIES. She essentially ignored my complaint. By doing so, she has obstructed justice, and she is guilty of dereliction of her duties. She accepts the fact that I was prohibited from using my evidence necessary to win my case. Rather than being part of the solution, she is part of the problem. My complaint has very little to do with money, but rather with getting justice. Once again, a judge is not held accountable for his illegal actions. You be the judge. Please read the following letters regarding my complaint. The District Court is pitiful, as is this employee of this commission. ANTHONY RAYMOND 973 Circle Drive Baltimore, Maryland 21227 (410) 247-**** traymond51@***.com ________________________________________________________________________ December 1, 2019 Tanya Bernstein Director/Investigative Counsel State of Maryland Commission on Judicial Disabilities P.O. Box 340 Linthicum Heights, MD 21090-**** Anthony Raymond vs. Michael Lang Case Number#: 0101-00****8-2019 Dear Director Bernstein: This complaint is about Judge Barbara Waxman. My complaint about Judge Waxman includes this letter, and my letters to Waxman in August and October. For your convenience, I am once again including two letters from Geico, which Judge Scurti refused to allow me to use. I have also included photos of my damages which Scurti not only refused to use and return to me, and my repairs from Heritage, and most importantly my letters from Geico. Waxmans letter to me 10-8-19 indicates I should have had these at trial, which of course I did. This letter is also included to show that she also did not review my complaint, but also ignored the facts. Unless the court intentionally deleted information from the transcript and recording, it will show that Judge Scurti would not allow me the present any evidence. You may also wish to include my complaint regarding Judge Scurti, and my letter to him dated 8-18-2019. You have this information. The courts and the judges in Maryland, particularly in Baltimore City, have an awful reputation. Even the police do not like or trust the judges and our court system. Criminals roam the streets because judges allow them free reign. Yet the victims cannot have their voices heard. Your office should serve to protect the rights of its citizens, not serve as a mouthpiece for the judges. It is pitiful the way I have been treated in your court, but even more so by your commission choosing to ignore the facts of my previous complaint. Judges act above the law because they know they are protected by those that are supposed to monitor their activities. There is neither accountability, nor consequences for the judges in Baltimore City. I received a letter from Kendra Jolivet. Obviously, like Judge Waxman, there was either no review of the transcript, or incriminating parts of the transcript were intentionally deleted. Based upon my past experiences, this complaint will probably also be a waste of time. However, this complaint will serve to prove that I attempted to receive justice through the Commission on Judicial Disabilities. Ones effort to seek justice in the district court should not depend on a judges familiarity or friendship with an attorney. My case was decided before I ever entered Judge Scurtis court. Judge Waxman should have investigated this, and your commission should have investigated my previous complaint. I remind you that Governor Hogans office referred me to you. As Administrative Judge, Judge Waxmans duties and obligations are to protect her court from unethical judges, and to serve justice by protecting the citizens. Instead she has attempted to protect her judge. It was impossible for me to have a fair trial. Although my case had very little monetary value, it was clearly compromised and sabotaged by Judge Scurti in his court. Please be assured that after this complaint is also not addressed properly, I will continue to seek justice elsewhere. My hope is that my continued and future efforts will result in people getting a fair opportunity to present their case in the District Court of Baltimore. This should not a favor to them by a judge. This is their right! Sincerely, Anthony Raymond ANTHONY RAYMOND 973 Circle Drive Baltimore, Maryland 21227 (410) 247-**** traymond51@***.com ______________________________________________________________________________ August 21, 2019 Judge Waxman Administrative Judge District Court of Baltimore City 5800 Wabash Avenue Baltimore, MD 21215 Anthony Raymond vs. Michael Lang Case Number#: 0101-00****8-2019 Dear Judge Waxman: Your assistant instructed me to forward my complaint to you. This complaint is outlined in the letter I have sent to Judge Scurti. I believe he is guilty of judicial misconduct and malpractice. I have also included the two letters which should have been used at the so-called trial. It is pitiful that one is not allowed to present evidence at trial, just because my adversary has a corporate lawyer known by Judge Scurti. He even ignored my reference to Maryland Transportation Rule 21-1-003 (d), and took no appropriate action in that regard. The following is taken directly from my complaint entered with your court: 3. On December 14, 2018 I was exiting from a parking space on Thames Street at the intersection of Wolfe Street. I was the very last spot on the right. The only way for me to legally reverse was to back up to Wolfe Street. When I began my exit, there were no cars visible in either direction. As I completed my reversal, a vehicle drove into my drivers side fender, and broadsided me. He backed up a bit, enough to allow me to exit my vehicle. I expected an apology as he apparently drove through the stop sign at the intersection. Instead he proceeded to scream at me, saying I struck his car. I asked him if he was crazy, since my car had completed my exit. He continued yelling at me. Then his girlfriend started to yell at me. I said I wanted his insurance card. He refused. He said that I have two choices. I should leave and forget about the accident, or he would call the police. I told him I have his license plate number, and I now I wanted the police to address the issue, especially since he had been so belligerent and confrontational. 6. On December 19, Laura Terry called me from Geico and informed me that I was responsible for the accident. I asked her how I could be at fault when the other vehicle broadsided me. She said first that I should have reversed me car completely and backed up across the intersection. I told her this was illegal, and should a police officer see me I would surely be ticketed, since this was against the law. She also said the other driver was waiting for my parking spot to pull in after I left. I reminded her that first this was not true, and the evidence clearly shows I had already exited from the spot. If he was parked in the intersection as she indicates, I could not have reversed my car. Also, if that were true, he should have given me enough room to exit my space. Secondly, his car was not even lined up with my spot. Langs vehicle apparently had driven through the intersection. The videos clearly show that had my car not been struck on Wolfe Street, it is probable that a parked vehicle adjacent to me would have been struck in the same area. Thirdly, if that were true, and I somehow drove into him, this means that he was parked in the intersection which is again illegal. 7. On December 29, I received a letter from Emera Sullivan, the Geico representative assigned for Michael Lang. Her letter states Mr. Lang was waiting in the intersection for you. This letter confirms that this is what he reported to Geico. She states that I stated Mr. Langs vehicle struck the front drivers side of your vehicle from an unknown direction. If he struck the side of my vehicle head on, then it is obvious which direction he came from, and he was coming at me from a perpendicular direction. I told Geico that Lang was not in sight when I was backing up, but apparently ran through the stop sign. How could it be an unknown direction? 8. If Lang had driven through the stop sign, as I suspect then that is illegal and caused the accident. If Lang was waiting in the intersection, as he alleges, then that is also illegal, and caused the accident. He struck my automobiles side with the front of his vehicle. My trial was more than just a complaint against Lang. I also have a complaint against Geico with the Maryland Insurance Commission. There will be a hearing. I am very upset. Judge Scurti has compromised both cases by his conduct. When one initiates a complaint one should expect impartiality, even if the judge is familiar with or friends with the other attorney. I really resent the way I was treated in this courtroom, and I trust that you will take appropriate actions so this judge, or for that matter any judge does not treat someone this way. I also think Scurti should be responsible for all of my court fees and damages.

Fayette Street Baltimore, MD 21202-**** Case Number#: 0101-00****8-2019 Dear Judge Scurti: You should be ashamed of yourself! Judges are supposed to act in an impartial way. You did not. My complaint was originally scheduled to be heard in the District Court of Baltimore County. Without my knowledge, Ms. Britton, the Geico attorney changed the venue to Baltimore City. She was smart to do so. It is a common perception that without a lawyer, a person cannot expect to get a fair trial in Baltimore City. My adversary was not just the defendant who never spoke in the trial, but his attorney as well. Ms. Britton is well known to your court. She said nothing at trial that I had not already said. You said I could not ask her questions about her clients statements to Geico, yet the Geico attorney was allowed to question me about my statements to Geico Initially I gave you photographs of my damages. You refused to even look at them, and directed me to give them to the clerk. I knew immediately that my case was lost before it began. I had still hoped that my case would be tried on a level playing field. It was not. I believe you said my photographs would be returned to me. My photographs were not returned. When you keep another persons possessions without their permission that is stealing. Your instructions to me stated that I could not refer to Geico, nor present my letters as evidence. You did not allow me to present to the court my letters from Geico dated 12/21/18 and 2/28/19, both of which clearly indicated that the defendants admitted he was parked in the intersection. As I mentioned in the court he clearly violated Maryland Transportation Rule 21-1003 (d) which states a person may not stop and park in an intersection. How can the defendant t-bone and broadside my car and not be responsible? You ignored my reference to this rule, and refused to act on it. You did not allow me to question my adversary because I couldnt talk about Geico. Never once did you ever ask either me or the defendant, or his lawyer questions about the accident. You never questioned me about the diagram I presented to the court. You never looked at the photographs. You did not care what I said, and refused my evidence. Your decision was made before I ever spoke. No wonder Ms. Britton was so confident before our 15 minute trial. It was all preordained. How dare you chastise and humiliate me in court by stating I did not having evidence. Without using the Geico letters, I could not prove the defendant either drove through the stop sign, or violated the law by parking in the intersection. You knew this. You did not care. You would not allow me to use the evidence I had. I remind you that both the defendant and I are both clients of Geico. I also remind you that Ms. Britton was appointed by Geico, and she was allowed to ask me questions regarding my initial complaint to Geico, yet I could not discuss Geico. Your actions discriminated against me. My case was lost before I even spoke. As you know, it is not necessary to pay for an attorney in a small claims court. Apparently in your court he or she with a lawyer automatically wins, particularly if it is a corporate attorney. In our judicial system you should be part of the solution. Instead you a part of the problem. Try dealing with people with integrity and ethics. Its pitiful the way you have treated me. I did not receive a fair and impartial trial from you. It was preordained and a farce. Please refund my $44

Baltimore City District Court Of Maryland - Avoid at all costs

BEWARE OF JUDGE BARBARA judicial malpraciceWAXMAN. PART OF HER JOB IS TO ADMINISTRATE THE MISCONDUCT OF THE OTHER JUDGES IN THE DISTRICT COURT OF MD, BALTIMORE CITY. INSTEAD SHE SERVES TO PROTECT THEM. I SUGGEST BEFORE HAVING ANY CONTACT WITH THIS JUDGE, READ MY FOLLOWING LETTER TO HER, WHICH OF COURSE WENT UNANSWERED. PITIFUL! THERE APPEARS TO BE NO ACCOUNTABILITY FOR UNETHICAL CONDUCT BY THE JUDGES IN THE DISTRICT COURT OF MARYLAND, PARTICULARLY IN BALTIMORE CITY. HOPEFULLY MY EFFORTS WILL ALERT THE PUBLIC, AND RESULT IN JUSTICE AND FAIR TRIALS, NOT A RESULT BASED ON THE WHIM OF A JUDGE, NOR HIS OR HER FRIENDSHIP AND FAMILIARITY WITH AN ATTORNEY. ANTHONY RAYMOND 973 Circle Drive Baltimore, Maryland 21227 (410) 247-**** traymond51@***.com ______________________________________________________________________________ October 20, 2019 Judge Barbara Waxman Administrative Judge District Court of Baltimore City 5800 Wabash Avenue Baltimore, MD 21215 Anthony Raymond vs. Michael Lang Case Number#: 0101-00****8-2019 Dear Honorable Judge Waxman: While I appreciate the courtesy of your response, you have avoided the very issues which are the basis of my complaint. In addition to the letter I sent you, I included a copy of the letter I sent to Judge Scurti, and the letters from Geico which were supposed to be used as evidence. You seemed to indicate that I needed a lawyer to receive a fair hearing. Most people would not consider hiring a lawyer for $500 or $1000 for what amounts to a simple $150 claim for damages. Had I been allowed to present my evidence, I would not have need a lawyer. You indicate that you listened to a recording of the trial. If that is true then you surely heard Scurti tell me twice that I could not discuss Geico in any way. In addition you should have heard me presenting him with photographs of my damages. A few years ago, at the Superior Court in New Jersey, important parts of the transcript were mysteriously deleted since they could have been a source of embarrassment to the judge and the court. Perhaps that is what has happened here? My letter to you and the complaint to the court clearly describes the accident. Of course I did not see the vehicle while I was reversing my own vehicle. I do not know anyone with 360 vision that can see in all directions. My attention was focused on reversing, after I determined there were no approaching vehicles. I also remind you that I was broadsided, with all damages of my vehicles left side. These were depicted in the photos I presented to Scurti. These of course were ignored. My letter to Scurti with a copy sent to you, paragraph 3 indicates my photos which he chose to not return to me. Please note the following which has been sent to you: Initially I gave you photographs of my damages. You refused to even look at them, and directed me to give them to the clerk. I knew immediately that my case was lost before it began. I had still hoped that my case would be tried on a level playing field. It was not. I believe you said my photographs would be returned to me. My photographs were not returned. When you keep another persons possessions without their permission that is stealing. I remind you that the court still has my photos. You state I did not produce evidence or an explanation. I brought to the so-called trail a large poster where I carefully explained the accident. Again, if you listened to the tape or read the transcript or letter I sent to Scurti, you would know this. Please note what has already been sent to you: Your instructions to me stated that I could not refer to Geico, nor present my letters as evidence. You did not allow me to present to the court my letters from Geico dated 12/21/18 and 2/28/19, both of which clearly indicated that the defendants admitted he was parked in the intersection. You did not allow me to question my adversary because I couldnt talk about Geico. Never once did you ever ask either me or the defendant, or his lawyer questions about the accident. You never questioned me about the diagram I presented to the court. You never looked at the photographs. You did not care what I said, and refused my evidence. How dare you chastise and humiliate me in court by stating I did not having evidence. Without using the Geico letters, I could not prove the defendant either drove through the stop sign, or violated the law by parking in the intersection. You knew this. You did not care. You would not allow me to use the evidence I had. You indicated that you looked at the court tapes. Either you ignored Scurtis refusals to allow my evidence or these statements were mysteriously deleted from the tapes and transcripts. My civil rights have been violated. I saw the Superior Court of New Jersey delete similar embarrassing passages from a transcript. I do not doubt it could happen in your court. Scurtis demeanor to me was not fair, impartial or courteous. I was not allowed by him to give my full version of the incident. At the conclusion if the trial, I tried to ask him why I was not allowed to present evidence, and to have my photographs returned. He simply ignored me, and left the courtroom. I do not know anyone who would call this courteous. You later said Scurti made his decision on the evidence presented. There was no evidence I was allowed to present. You have avoided the primary issues my complaint, and ignored the facts. You apparently did not even read the letters I sent you. I will give you the opportunity to again review everything that has been sent to you, and the complete tape of the trial, if of course it still exists. If you need copies to the photos, expenses regarding the damages, or anything else, I will email them to you. If you do not feel that you can address my complaint in its entirety for whatever reason, then please forward this to someone who will. Please be assured that if my complaint is not addressed in its entirety within 30 days, I will have no choice but to exercise my rights by submitting my complaint to others in the private and public sector, and pursuing other options, which could prove at the very least embarrassing to your court. You never explained to me why was not allowed to use my evidence at trial. It is pitiful that a citizen should have to go to such lengths to receive any semblance of justice in your court. Be part of the solution, not part of the problem. Sincerely, Anthony Raymond

Baltimore City District Court Of Maryland - Avoid Judge Scurti and Waxman at all costs. You may not get a fair trial!

BEWARE OF THE DISTRICT COURT OF MARYLAND FOR BALTIMORE CITY. I SUGGEST BEFORE HAVING YOUR CASE TRIED WITH JUDGE SCURTI OR JUDGE WAXMAN, READ MY FOLLOWING LETTER WHICH OF COURSE WENT UNANSWERED. PITIFUL! THERE APPEARS TO BE NO ACCOUNTABILITY FOR UNETHICAL CONDUCT BY THE JUDGES IN THE DISTRICT COURT OF MARYLAND, PARTICULARLY IN BALTIMORE CITY. HOPEFULLY MY EFFORTS WILL ALERT THE PUBLIC, AND RESULT IN JUSTICE AND FAIR TRIALS, NOT A RESULT BASED ON THE WHIM OF A JUDGE, NOR HIS OR HER FRIENDSHIP AND FAMILIARITY WITH AN ATTORNEY. ANTHONY RAYMOND 973 Circle Drive Baltimore, Maryland 21227 (410) 247-**** traymond51@***.com ______________________________________________________________________________ October 20, 2019 Judge Barbara Waxman Administrative Judge District Court of Baltimore City 5800 Wabash Avenue Baltimore, MD 21215 Anthony Raymond vs. Michael Lang Case Number#: 0101-00****8-2019 Dear Honorable Judge Waxman: While I appreciate the courtesy of your response, you have avoided the very issues which are the basis of my complaint. In addition to the letter I sent you, I included a copy of the letter I sent to Judge Scurti, and the letters from Geico which were supposed to be used as evidence. You seemed to indicate that I needed a lawyer to receive a fair hearing. Most people would not consider hiring a lawyer for $500 or $1000 for what amounts to a simple $150 claim for damages. Had I been allowed to present my evidence, I would not have need a lawyer. You indicate that you listened to a recording of the trial. If that is true then you surely heard Scurti tell me twice that I could not discuss Geico in any way. In addition you should have heard me presenting him with photographs of my damages. A few years ago, at the Superior Court in New Jersey, important parts of the transcript were mysteriously deleted since they could have been a source of embarrassment to the judge and the court. Perhaps that is what has happened here? My letter to you and the complaint to the court clearly describes the accident. Of course I did not see the vehicle while I was reversing my own vehicle. I do not know anyone with 360 vision that can see in all directions. My attention was focused on reversing, after I determined there were no approaching vehicles. I also remind you that I was broadsided, with all damages of my vehicles left side. These were depicted in the photos I presented to Scurti. These of course were ignored. My letter to Scurti with a copy sent to you, paragraph 3 indicates my photos which he chose to not return to me. Please note the following which has been sent to you: Initially I gave you photographs of my damages. You refused to even look at them, and directed me to give them to the clerk. I knew immediately that my case was lost before it began. I had still hoped that my case would be tried on a level playing field. It was not. I believe you said my photographs would be returned to me. My photographs were not returned. When you keep another persons possessions without their permission that is stealing. I remind you that the court still has my photos. You state I did not produce evidence or an explanation. I brought to the so-called trail a large poster where I carefully explained the accident. Again, if you listened to the tape or read the transcript or letter I sent to Scurti, you would know this. Please note what has already been sent to you: Your instructions to me stated that I could not refer to Geico, nor present my letters as evidence. You did not allow me to present to the court my letters from Geico dated 12/21/18 and 2/28/19, both of which clearly indicated that the defendants admitted he was parked in the intersection. You did not allow me to question my adversary because I couldnt talk about Geico. Never once did you ever ask either me or the defendant, or his lawyer questions about the accident. You never questioned me about the diagram I presented to the court. You never looked at the photographs. You did not care what I said, and refused my evidence. How dare you chastise and humiliate me in court by stating I did not having evidence. Without using the Geico letters, I could not prove the defendant either drove through the stop sign, or violated the law by parking in the intersection. You knew this. You did not care. You would not allow me to use the evidence I had. You indicated that you looked at the court tapes. Either you ignored Scurtis refusals to allow my evidence or these statements were mysteriously deleted from the tapes and transcripts. My civil rights have been violated. I saw the Superior Court of New Jersey delete similar embarrassing passages from a transcript. I do not doubt it could happen in your court. Scurtis demeanor to me was not fair, impartial or courteous. I was not allowed by him to give my full version of the incident. At the conclusion if the trial, I tried to ask him why I was not allowed to present evidence, and to have my photographs returned. He simply ignored me, and left the courtroom. I do not know anyone who would call this courteous. You later said Scurti made his decision on the evidence presented. There was no evidence I was allowed to present. You have avoided the primary issues my complaint, and ignored the facts. You apparently did not even read the letters I sent you. I will give you the opportunity to again review everything that has been sent to you, and the complete tape of the trial, if of course it still exists. If you need copies to the photos, expenses regarding the damages, or anything else, I will email them to you. If you do not feel that you can address my complaint in its entirety for whatever reason, then please forward this to someone who will. Please be assured that if my complaint is not addressed in its entirety within 30 days, I will have no choice but to exercise my rights by submitting my complaint to others in the private and public sector, and pursuing other options, which could prove at the very least embarrassing to your court. You never explained to me why was not allowed to use my evidence at trial. It is pitiful that a citizen should have to go to such lengths to receive any semblance of justice in your court.

Mark F Scurti Associate Judge - Avoid. He is an awful unfair judge.

BEWARE OF THIS JUDGE. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU DO NOT APPEAR BEFORE THIS JUDGE IF YOU WANT A FAIR TRIAL. HE REFUSED TO USE MY EVIDENCE, EVEN THE PHOTOGRAPHS I PRESENTED TO HIM. HE WOULD NOT EVEN RETURN THEM TO ME. ANYWHERE ELSE BESIDES THE DISTRICT COURT IN BALTIMORE CITY. THIS WOULD BE CONSIDERED STEALING! PLEASE READ MY FOLLOWING LETTER TO HIM. OF COURSE I DID NOT RECEIVE A REPLY. SCURTI IS RUDE AND ARROGANT, BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY UNFAIR. WITHOUT A LAWYER YOU CANNOT WIN! THERE APPEARS TO BE NO ACCOUNTABILITY FOR UNETHICAL CONDUCT BY THE JUDGES IN THE DISTRICT COURT OF MARYLAND, PARTICULARLY IN BALTIMORE CITY. HOPEFULLY MY EFFORTS WILL ALERT THE PUBLIC, AND RESULT IN JUSTICE AND FAIR TRIALS, NOT A RESULT BASED ON THE WHIM OF A JUDGE, NOR HIS OR HER FRIENDSHIP AND FAMILIARITY WITH AN ATTORNEY. ANTHONY RAYMOND 973 Circle Drive Baltimore, Maryland 21227 (410) 247-**** traymond51@***.com ________________________________________________________________________ August 19, 2019 Judge Mark Scurti District Court of Maryland for Baltimore City 501 E. Fayette Street Baltimore, MD 21202-**** Case Number#: 0101-00****8-2019 Dear Judge Scurti: You should be ashamed of yourself! Judges are supposed to act in an impartial way. You did not. My complaint was originally scheduled to be heard in the District Court of Baltimore County. Without my knowledge, Ms. Britton, the Geico attorney changed the venue to Baltimore City. She was smart to do so. It is a common perception that without a lawyer, a person cannot expect to get a fair trial in Baltimore City. My adversary was not just the defendant who never spoke in the trial, but his attorney as well. Ms. Britton is well known to your court. She said nothing at trial that I had not already said. You said I could not ask her questions about her clients statements to Geico, yet the Geico attorney was allowed to question me about my statements to Geico Initially I gave you photographs of my damages. You refused to even look at them, and directed me to give them to the clerk. I knew immediately that my case was lost before it began. I had still hoped that my case would be tried on a level playing field. It was not. I believe you said my photographs would be returned to me. My photographs were not returned. When you keep another persons possessions without their permission that is stealing. Your instructions to me stated that I could not refer to Geico, nor present my letters as evidence. You did not allow me to present to the court my letters from Geico dated 12/21/18 and 2/28/19, both of which clearly indicated that the defendants admitted he was parked in the intersection. As I mentioned in the court he clearly violated Maryland Transportation Rule 21-1003 (d) which states a person may not stop and park in an intersection. How can the defendant t-bone and broadside my car and not be responsible? You ignored my reference to this rule, and refused to act on it. You did not allow me to question my adversary because I couldnt talk about Geico. Never once did you ever ask either me or the defendant, or his lawyer questions about the accident. You never questioned me about the diagram I presented to the court. You never looked at the photographs. You did not care what I said, and refused my evidence. Your decision was made before I ever spoke. No wonder Ms. Britton was so confident before our 15 minute trial. It was all preordained. How dare you chastise and humiliate me in court by stating I did not having evidence. Without using the Geico letters, I could not prove the defendant either drove through the stop sign, or violated the law by parking in the intersection. You knew this. You did not care. You would not allow me to use the evidence I had. I remind you that both the defendant and I are both clients of Geico. I also remind you that Ms. Britton was appointed by Geico, and she was allowed to ask me questions regarding my initial complaint to Geico, yet I could not discuss Geico. Your actions discriminated against me. My case was lost before I even spoke. As you know, it is not necessary to pay for an attorney in a small claims court. Apparently in your court he or she with a lawyer automatically wins, particularly if it is a corporate attorney. In our judicial system you should be part of the solution. Instead you a part of the problem. Try dealing with people with integrity and ethics. Its pitiful the way you have treated me. I did not receive a fair and impartial trial from you. It was preordained and a farce. Please

Tanglewood Road LLC - Work incomplete, then abandoned

BEWARE OF TANGLEWOOD ROAD, LLC/JOE SHRYOCK He charged me for work not completed, then abandoned me. In January 2019, I went to the Home Depot for electrical problems. They referred me to Joe of Tanglewood LLC. On January 25, he said he fixed my bathroom heater, and charged me $275. His repair lasted for eight minutes, and one shower. He was supposed to do additional work, but said he had another job to do, and he would call me. He left some of his repair supplies with me. I waited until February 27, and spoke with Gary at Pro Referral. Gary called Joe. Joe called me and said he would do research on my heater on his lunch hour. I have never spoken with him since then. He has refused to contact me to complete his “repairs” or to provide a complete refund. Joe deserted and abandoned me, and took money for the repairs he did not do. I am making official complaints to the Home Improvement Commissioner so others will not be deceived by his fraudulent behavior. I suggest all people avoid doing any business with this so-called contractor. There are other honest contractors around. I invite anyone to contact me for additional information.
