Pro Se Litigants are second class citizens in our Courts

Let’s face it, being Pro Se for most parties is not by choice, but of economic necessity. Make no mistake and leave no doubt, if you are Pro Se, you are a second class citizen in our Courts.

If you doubt that, as a litigant, sit down in the area reserved for “litigants” in front of a courtroom. It won’t be long before a bailiff asks you if you’re an attorney. When you say no, just like Rosa Parks, you will be directed to the “back of the bus”.

Our Pro Se section provides stories about real Pro Se Litigants and their court cases. We will give you examples of various pleadings filed by Pro Se Litigants and show you examples of the tactics they used.

For example, most Judges hate a Pro Se Litigant to publish their stories or their “Public Court Documents” on the Internet. Yet they giggle like school girls when they see their Bar Association “brothers” and “sisters on a morning talk show selling their affluent clients’ position, dreaming of those big fees to come.

The widest economic divide in our nation is the one in our Court Rooms. It is classest, elitist and no longer designed for justice, but rather to ensure the proliferation of attorneys and their affluent lifestyles.

Don’t get your case swept out the back door. Be sure to build up public interest in your case just like the high-priced Attorneys do for their clients. (It was so tempting to say “high-priced mouthpieces”). Always be factual but remember, you should speak out publicly when a Judge abuses his or her power and violates your civil rights.

Our showcase is the case of  Torres v. Torres. This is about one of the biggest cases to have ever been handled Pro Se. When Judge Christopher J. Muse, accused of bias, threw out their case, the Pro Se Litigants did the near impossible. They had Judge Christopher J. Muse’s decision overturned by the Massachusetts Court of Appeals, and they did it by telephone!
