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

“This website addresses the problem of meritless, abusive lawsuits filed by self-represented / pro se litigants and calls for legislative action that requires judges to practice sua sponte judicial review of all pro se litigants’ lawsuits.

This website also addresses the problem of religious frauds and various disturbing and harmful tactics that religious frauds use against their victims – including filing meritless, abusive lawsuits.

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.”

Judgment Against Ken “Pastor Max” Parks in Federal Bankruptcy Court – Treble Attorney Fees and More Awarded to Scott and Paulette Buchanan

Judgment Against Ken “Pastor Max” Parks in Federal Bankruptcy Court – Treble Attorney Fees and More Awarded to Scott and Paulette Buchanan

On February 2, 2021, a hearing was held in Georgia’s Northern District Bankruptcy court.  Ken “Pastor Max” Parks failed to appear.  After hearing our testimony and being presented with irrefutable evidence, Judge Sage Sigler ruled that the Connecticut vexatious litigant law applied to our claim in the Georgia Bankruptcy Court, and she awarded us treble (triple) the amount of the Connecticut attorney fees that we had spent to get my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks’ utterly meritless 2015 lawsuit against us dismissed (with prejudice).  Judge Sigler also ruled that Ken “Pastor Max” Parks had to pay additional attorney fees we incurred with our Georgia attorneys in my brother’s bankruptcy case.  The treble amount of Connecticut attorney fees awarded is $192, 444.21 and the Georgia attorney fees awarded is $25,591.30, for a total of $218,035.51.  

Prior to the February 2, 2021 Georgia Bankruptcy Court hearing, Ken “Pastor Max” Parks claimed in his filing with the court that he’s chronically ill, “frail and weakened” in “body and mind” and “virtually bed-ridden” and therefore he claimed he could not attend via video conferencing the scheduled hearing.  And yet, a few hours after the February 2, 2021 Bankruptcy Court hearing, we found out from our Tennessee attorney that my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks spent the day calling law offices in our area trying to find an attorney to file yet another lawsuit against us (so much for being “frail and weakened” in “body and mind”).  One attorney reported that not only did he refuse to represent my brother, but he stated that Ken sounded “really crazy.”           

On February 9, 2021 Judge Sage Sigler issued her Final Judgment, consolidating the previous Orders regarding the awarding of attorney fees in the Tennessee and Connecticut cases and declaring those judgments non-dischargeable.
