The Need for Sua Sponte Judicial Review Laws For Pro Se Litigants’ Lawsuits

Judicial reform is needed to require that judges instantly dismiss abusive, frivolous lawsuits, especially those filed by self-represented / pro se litigants, before financial harm is done to innocent defendants needing to hire attorneys to get these abusive, frivolous lawsuits dismissed.


Cults and religious frauds use a variety of harmful tactics against their victims – including filing abusive, frivolous lawsuits.  This is one of the tactics used by Ken Parks (aka, Pastor Ken, Pastor Ken Parks, Pastor Ken Max Parks, Pastor Max, Ken Max Parks, Max Parks).  Ken Parks advertises on social media his unregistered, financially unaccountable ETC Ministries, Simplicity of Christ / SOC Ministries, and his unregistered “professional photographer” businesses.  He runs these activities from his apartment.  Despite calling himself “pastor”, Ken Parks is not an ordained minister.


The matters discussed in this website involve subjects which merit constitutionally protected public scrutiny, and this website provides documentation, commentary, and opinion on matters of public concern.

Lawsuits Filed & Won Against Ken Parks

Lawsuits Filed & Won Against Ken Parks

My brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks has a history of operating unregistered and unlicensed “businesses” (e.g., Weddings Thru the Lens, Fotos by Ken) and “ministries” (e.g., ETC Ministries and Simplicity of Christ / SOC Ministries) — unregistered and unlicensed because he has published online that he refuses to “follow the rules and doctrines of men.”  Also, we have documentation that shows my brother Ken Parks has stolen photos from other photographers websites and from the Internet and posted them on his own websites, etc., to pass them off as his own photos.

  1. The Georgia Revenue Department sued my brother Ken Parks in 2006 due to his “business” practices. The Georgia Revenue Department won a judgment against him in 2007, seized his bank account, and garnished his wages (when he was employed): Fulton County, Georgia docket number 07GC083840 and Dekalb County, Georgia docket number 07G09959
  2. The City of Johns Creek, Georgia, where my brother Ken Parks lived in the house owned by his then-second wife (divorced in 2023), sued my brother Ken Parks for his failure to license one of his “businesses” which he operated in the house owned by his then-wife (Johns Creek Municipal Court case number 2011003041). Again, my brother Ken Parks also operated his unregistered “ministries” from that same house. My brother Ken Parks’ then-wife signed for the notice issued by the City of Johns Creek against her husband Ken Parks:
  3. Providian Bank in Florida also sued my brother Ken Parks and won a judgment against him (Orange County, Florida docket number: 2002-CC-009805-O)
  4. In 1990, while my brother Ken Parks was being investigated for child abuse and neglect against his own children, I (Paulette Buchanan) filed and won a small claims lawsuit against him for about $1,678 after Ken refused to repay me for money I loaned him to try to help him get counseling.  My mother and I both tried to help my brother Ken after he claimed that he was so sorry for calling us “demon possessed” and he promised to get counseling for his many problems.   Neither my mother nor I knew about his abuse of his children when we loaned him money (my mother loaned him over $15,000 of her retirement savings).  In short, he deliberately lied to both me and our mother.  I collected only about $25.00 from my brother Ken Parks before he fled Connecticut while under investigation for child abuse and child neglect.
