County hires coordinator for new legal resource center
By S. Aiken H-P Sat. Jan. 24, 2009
St. Joseph - Deann Matson, who has many years of experience working in the Berrien County Trial Court system as a clerk, has been hired to serve as coordinator of a self-help legal resource center. [DEANN MATSON HAS THE REPUTATION OF NOT HELPING PEOPLE WHO NEED HELP AND ASSISTS THE COURT SYSTEM IN CONVICTING AND IMPRISONING INNOCENT PEOPLE - FOR MANY YEARS.]
About 14,000 people represented themselves in Berrien County court proceedings last year in...Berrien County. Without a lawyer's expertise, they often make mistakes in paperwork... [IT IS COMMON THAT THOSE WHO REPRESENT THEMSELVES IN BERRIEN COUNTY COURT ARE PURPOSELY GIVEN THE INCORRECT PAPER WORK.]
The center will not dispense legal advice but can help people avoid some justice system pitfalls. The services are free except for small copying fees.
The center will be for people who want to represent themselves in civil court cases. ...staffed by people who can provide forms for various types of cases and direction in filling them out. The county board...agreed to provide space, furniture, computers and a copier for three years. The county's cost is estimated at $100,000 for the first year and $60,000 annually for the second and third years. [THIS NEW OFFICE IS DESIGNED TO GIVE JOBS TO FRIENDS AND RELATIVES OF PEOPLE ALREADY WORKING IN THE COURTHOUSE.]
Other financial support is coming from community organizations and foundations.
Alfred Butzbaugh, Berrien County Trial Court's chief judge, told county commissioners Thursday that so far area lawyers support the concept, which is expected to help the court run more smoothly. ["RUN MORE SMOOTHLY" = CONVICT PEOPLE MORE QUICKLY, AND TAKE AWAY THEIR HOMES MORE QUICKLY. OF COURSE LAWYERS SUPPORT THE "CONCEPT" - DO THE PEOPLE SUPPORT THE "CONCEPT"? DOES BUTZBAUGH CARE?]
Speaking to the county board's Administration Committee, Butzbaugh ...said no lawyers have complained, and the Berrien County Bar Association was an early supporter. [THE REASON FOR THIS IS THAT THE JUDGES AND THE BAR ASSOCIATION HAVE A LONG HISTORY OF WORKING AGAINST THE RESIDENTS OF THE COUNTY.]
...people who do not have legal representation...Michigan State Bar Foundation is interested in finding solutions.
"Lawyers know there are a lot of people out there who are not represented. They're not going to represent them," Butzbaugh said. "These are the people we are trying to deal with." [IS BUTZBAUGH ADMITTING THAT BERRIEN COUNTY LAWYERS WILL NOT REPRESENT THE PEOPLE? IS HE REFERRING TO BENTON HARBOR CITIZENS? THIS IS A DAMNING, RACIST STATEMENT FROM THE CHIEF JUDGE WHICH IS EVEN AMAZING COMING FROM BUTZBAUGH. HIS RACIST, UNETHICAL THINKING HAS TAKEN OVER WHO HE IS AS A PERSON AND A JUDGE.]
