Analysis Judge Tracie Hunter Trial Day 6

An Angry Red-Faced Red-Headed Kathy PRIDEmore
Here's The Cincinnati Black Blog's analysis of Day 6 in Judge Tracie Hunter's trial.

The only witness was Katherine Elizabeth Pridemore, a white female Hamilton County prosecuting attoney. She testified that she LIVED & BREATHED Judge Hunter. She was obsessed!!! She claims someone at the Ohio Supreme Court told her to WATCH Judge Hunter. She kept a 500+ page dossier on the judge. Just Nuts!!!

PRIDEmore's testimony demonstrated for the jury exactly what Judge Hunter had to deal with -- a bunch of supposed professionals who took every opportunity to disrespect the elected judge. There's racism at play here. PRIDEmore was a classic example of a white person in an underling position who thinks they should be in charge. On the stand, she yelled and screamed at Clyde Bennett. She pointed and wagged her finger at Judge Hunter. She refused to refer to Tracie Hunter as "judge" and instead referred to her as "your client" and "her" and "she". PRIDEmore came off as a bubblehead. She didn't know the court rules, or the process, but still believed that she was superior to Judge Hunter. It's White Supremacy.

It's well known that the whites started claiming Judge Hunter was incompetent and literally crazy. They convinced themselves of this even as Judge Hunter kicked their asses all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, and had several of their frivolous lawsuits decided in her favor by the Ohio Supreme Court. Indeed, the only cases she lost were those where Dirty Joe Deters and his peons said Judge Hunter couldn't represent herself or hire her own legal representative, then they threw the cases. In one case, they didn't file an answer.

Instead of PRIDEmore and her gang respecting the judge and trying to work with her, they refused to follow Judge Hunter's orders. They thought they could make her bow down and let them run her court. (This happens in a lot of courtrooms.) The Cincinnati Black Blog has video of a prosecutor wilding out in Judge Hunter's courtroom. Judge Hunter had to find some of these morons in contempt of court.

From Ms. Vanessa Jones Enoch @venoch:
  • Defense Attorney Bennett said the media is taking pictures and broadcasting him and Judge Hunter's notes.
  • Juror #2 (whilte female) called in sick. Judge Nadel excused her from the rest of the trial.
  • Prosecutions next witness called. Katherine (Katy Criden) is Chief/Team Leader Prosecutors Office.
  • Ohio Supreme Court directed Criden to watch Judge Hunter's docket.
  • Correction...witnesses name is Catherine Pridemore. She works for Joe Deters office. In office for two months and was investigating Hunter.
  • Pridemore said Sup. Ct. had her watching Hunter. If complaint is filed parties are notified. If no complaint filed, why were they watching
  • This witness is very hostile and stand-offish. Pridemore was only working for prosecutor for 2 months, yet she was a proclaimed expert.
  • Pridemore says Judge Hunter was trying to stop her from appealing, then admits that they appealed all the way to the Supreme Ct.
  • Referring to Judge Hunter as "Your Client and her". Obviously very hostile for someone new to her role. Very disrespectful to Judge Hunter
  • Pridemore is arguing with Attorney Bennett and refuses to answer the questions. She is very nasty and sarcastic towards attorney Bennett.
  • Streaming live. Katy Pridemore, a hostile witness testifying. She has proven Prosecutors office personal vendetta.
  • Prosecutor Crosswell is attempting to enter new evidence that is hearsay.
From Nathaniel Livingston, Jr. @NathanielLiving:
  • - Jealous white woman from Deters office going crazy on stand.
  • Catherine: doesn't know the law or the rules. Clyde hands her the rulebook.
  • Deters put Catherine in charge of Juv Ct prosecutor's office.
  • Catherine acting completely unprofessional.
  • Catherine has no direct knowledge that Judge backdated any documents.
  • Catherine: backdating stopped us from appealing even though we actually did appeal.
  • - Birthers? Catherine Pridemore says she's not political and doesn't know if Judge Hunter won election?
  • - Catheine Pridemore isn't into politics. Would someone find out how much $$$ she gave to John William.
  • Catherine Pridemore says she has a 500+ page doc re Judge. Why wasn't it turned over to defense in discovery?
  • Catherine Pridemore coming off as a BIG DUMMY who doesn't know how Juv Ct work & was sent by Deters to watch Judge Hunter.
  • Catherine Pridemore Real Arrogant. Seems to think because she's a white lawyer she's on equal level with elected judge.
  • Pridemore: 2 Judges are in charge of Juv Ct. What about the independently elected Clerk of Courts? Court Administrator?
  • Catherine Pridemore: Deters' chief prosecutor in Juv Ct didn't look at any of John Williams' case to see if they were backdated? #TracieHunter

Judge Hunter: Norbert Nadel Must Step Down!

Meryln "The Magician" Shiverdecker and Robert Scott Croswell III
Yesterday, Hamilton County Juvenile Court Judge Tracie Hunter filed a "Motion To Recuse". She seeks to have Norbert Nadel follow the law as decided by the Ohio Supreme Court and voluntarily recuse himself from presiding over her trial.

The white media, led by Kimball Perry, a racist white writer for The Cincinnati Enquirer, is making fun of this motion. They harp on the fact that Judge Hunter, who is a licensed attorney and is acting as her own co-counsel, filed the motion herself instead of having her co-counsel, Clyde Bennett, file it. They also pretend there's no merit to the motion. We disagree BUT WE ARE CONCERNED.

Ohio Revised Code 2701.03 deals with the disqualification of Common Pleas Court judges. Here's what it says:
If a judge of the court of common pleas allegedly is ... related to or has a bias or prejudice for or against a party to a proceeding pending before the court or a party's counsel, or allegedly is disqualified to preside in a proceeding pending before the court, any party to the proceeding or the party's counsel may file an affidavit of disqualification with the clerk of the supreme court in accordance with division (B) of this section. (source)
COUNSEL DOESN'T HAVE TO FILE AFFIDAVIT OF DISQUALIFICATION

Judge Hunter is a party to the proceeding. Norbert is a judge of the court of common pleas. Judge Hunter believes he has a bias for the prosecution and a prejudice against her.  She also believes he is disqualified to preside in the proceedings for other reasons that are discussed below. Therefore, Judge Hunter may file an affidavit of disqualification.

NO EVIDENCE THAT JUDGE HUNTER FILED AFFIDAVIT OF DISQUALIFICATION 

The Cincinnati Black Blog is concerned that Judge Hunter didn't file an affidavit of disqualification with the clerk of the Ohio Supreme Court (at least not that we know of). Instead, she filed a motion asking Norbert to do the right thing. Now, if Norbert were fair, he would've reviewed the motion, researched the law cited, and followed the law. Norbert isn't fair. When, or if, Judge Hunter files an affidavit of disqualification with the clerk of the Ohio Supreme Court, we'll let you know.

[Note: An affidavit of disqualification must be filed at least 7 calendar days before the next hearing. However, I'm sure Judge Hunter, her legal team, and concerned attorneys/paralegals can find numerous cases where that deadline couldn't be met and the party was allowed to have a judge removed. In Judge Hunter's case, because the prosecution held onto discovery until the last minute she had no way of knowing who she'd have to subpoena as witnesses until less than 7 days before trial started.]

GROUNDS FOR DISQUALIFICATION AND REMOVAL OF NORBERT

Judge Hunter's motion provides that Norbert should disqualify himself for the following reasons.

  1. Other sitting and retired Hamilton County judges are going to be called as witnesses. These judges include: Leslie Ghiz (known on this blog as "Ghizzy Lizzy"), Big Mama Sylvia Hendon (mother-in-law of Joseph T. Deters aka "Dirty Joe" Deters), Penelope Cunningham (wife of 700WLW's Willie Cunningham), Patrick Dinkelacker, Thomas Lipps, and Karla Grady.
  2. Family members of sitting judges are going to be called as witnesses.
  3. Norbert has shown racial bias in the selection of jurors.
  4. Norbert has allowed a WCPO employee to remain on the jury.
  5. Norbert hasn't enforced a separation of witnesses or done anything to restrict material witnesses from watching the proceedings.

THE LAW

Judge Hunter doesn't have a reputation for being an aggressive trial attorney. She is, however, widely regarded as an excellent legal researcher and writer.

Here's the law on points one and two according to her motion.
The Ohio Supreme Court (mistake omitted) has repeatedly held that a sitting judge should not preside in a case involving another judge of the same court. In re Disqualification of Calabrese, 74 Ohio St.3d 1233 (further citation omitted), Chief Justice Moyer held that a Cuyahoga Common Pleas Judge could not hear a case involving a Cuyahoga Municipal Court Judge. In re Disqualification of McMonagle, 74 Ohio St.3d 1226 (further citation omitted), Chief Justice Moyer again disqualified a Cuyahoga Common Pleas judge from hearing a case because a sitting judge could not preside over a case where a former judge and a sitting judge would likely be called as witnesses. This rule has even been extended to disqualifying judges from hearing cases involving family members of sitting judges. In re Disqualification of Nugent, 47 Ohio St.3d 601 (further citation omitted); In re Disqualification of Nadel, 47 Ohio St.3d 604 (further citation omitted). Judge Sylvia Hendon is the mother-in-law of complainant Joseph Deters. Both are expected to testify. 
Seems pretty clear cut to us.

One of the knocks on Judge Hunter is she doesn't follow the law and doesn't follow orders from higher courts. Well, if Judge Hunter's case law is accurate, the Ohio Supreme Court has made it abundantly clear (even in one case involving Norbert Nadel) that Norbert cannot preside over Judge Hunter's trial.

Here's the law on point three.
[The] court must disqualify itself because he has shown his bias by failing to follow the law as set forth in Kentucky v. Batson, 476 U.S. 79 (further citation omitted). During voir dire, the court repeatedly permitted the state to exclude African-American jurors based on race. The court also demonstrated bias by failing to excuse multiple Caucasian jurors who indicated they "were not sure" that they could disregard the extensive pre-trial media coverage in deciding the case.
...
The trial court's rulings and failure to eliminate any jurors for cause, except African-Americans, clearly violate the law and establish that he is biased and must recuse himself.
 Judge Hunter provides facts and argument to support points four and five.
The Judge additionally failed to excuse a juror employed by a major media outlet that sued Judge Hunter and excessively covered Judge Hunter. Extensive trial testimony regarding such lawsuit has been and shall continue to be provided by witnesses during trial.
The trial is being broadcast live globally without judicial restriction. Material witnesses expected to testify in this case have been allowed to watch the proceedings without restriction, advisement or admonishment. The jury has not been sequestered. 
WHAT'S NEXT

We don't believe Judge Hunter hurt herself by filing the motion. Reminding Norbert of the law and asking him to voluntarily recuse himself rather than be forcibly removed by the Ohio Supreme Court could be seen as a professional courtesy. If she hasn't already done so, we trust that Judge Hunter will file an affidavit of disqualification with the Ohio Supreme Court. We would expect it to include sworn statements from the judge, her attorney, the appropriate person/people who can verify what's in the transcript from jury selection (which we are sure the defense has obtained), and even more law on all points.

Here's a link to Judge Hunter's Motion To Recuse.

Analysis Judge Tracie Hunter Trial Day 5


For more than 10 years, The Cincinnati Black Blog has provided you, our faithful readers, with countless examples proving the white media in Cincinnati is biased and lazy. Since we first started providing original reporting on this blog, the white media has worsened.  Many, if not most, of the local "journalists" are in a clique. It's a nasty, incestuous culture that conspires together and decides what the truth is. Once decided, they peddle their version of truth to a gullible public.

Here's how it's working in the criminal trial of Judge Tracie Hunter. Powerful white Republican politicians (most of them sinful heathens) have crafted a story designed to de-legitimize and disenfranchise Judge Tracie. Who's involved in this conspiracy?

  • Joseph T. Deters (known on this blog as "Dirty Joe" Deters)
  • Judge Sylvia Hendon
  • Judge John Williams
  • Republican Party Chairman Alex Triantafilou
  • Hamilton County Public Defender Ray Faller
  • Juvenile Court Administrator Curtis Kissinger
  • Clear Channel Radio - Cincinnati
  • WCPO
  • The Cincinnati Enquirer
  • Kimball Perry

Dozens of white people have taken reports filed by Kimball as The Gospel Truth.

If The Enquirer publishes it ... it' truth.

If Kimball tweets it ... it's true.

Nevermind that Kimball, The Enquirer, and WCPO have all made themselves part of the story by suing Judge Tracie, disrespecting her, and demanding she honor the status quo by ignoring court rules and letting them control her and her courtroom. They expect White Privilege.

So, since the trial started dozens of white people (and a few DNegros) have signed up to get Kimball's slanted view of events. It would be easy to dismiss them as a bunch of dummies, but doing so would miss a bigger point. Coverage of Judge Tracie demonstrates why the city is so divided. White people started a fight with Judge Tracie. Then they spent years calling her crazy, lying about her job performance, and trying to sabotage her. She fought back. Now they've got a feckless indictment and a kangaroo court proceeding. But white people don't know what's going on.  All they know is what they've been told by other white people.

The Cincinnati Black Blog is here to Tell The Truth. Our hope is this will bring people together. We have decided to provide the other side of the story.

For now, we intend to provide daily analysis of the trial.

I'll be personally covering the trial (I'm subpoenaed to testify as a witness too) just as soon as I can wrap up some business in Toledo and make it down to Cincinnati. Until then, I'll be re-publishing (for as long as I have their permission) first-hand reports from Vanessa Jones Enoch, Cheri Franklin-Scott, and Bishop Bobby Hilton. With help from staff, we'll be analyzing reports provided by the white press.

  • As a Guardian Ad Litem and from employment with Pro Kids, Judge Hunter would have been sensitive to the needs of children and families.
  • Attorney Bennett caught Judge Hunters cold. Join me in blessing them both.
  • Yikes! The case that Judge Hunter was accused of having out of time was originally a bind over for which Judge Hunter had no jurisdiction.
  • The clock was ticking, but didn't cover cases on appeal. There is no timelines for cases on appeal. Judge Hunter ruled judiciously!
  • The cases they accused Judge Hunter of being out of time on was filed in 1998 and 2005. Judge Hunter took the bench in 2012. No harm caused.
  • This case is a travesty of justice! Faller said that it isn't humanly possible for someone to handle a caseload that large.
  • This was indeed a witch hunt! They were out to get from the beginning!
  • Attorney Bennett just presented evidence proving that Judge Hunter had over 14,000 cases.
  • Today, Judge Nadel refused a written motion to recuse himself from the case as several Judges will testify and he is her peer & cannot rule.
  • Per Faller: Judge Hunter was not informed of which cases were alleged out of time & the county was responsible for paying court filing fees.
  • Hamilton County Public Defenders Office engaged in tactics to keep Judge Hunter from responding. They sued her for cases that were ruled on.
  • Faller says Judge Hunter was polite. They still sued her and not Judge Williams.

Counter-Analysis of Week 1 in Judge Tracie Hunter Trial

Judge Nadel Lets Cincinnati Enquirer Writer Kimball Perry Run Wild

Is Hamilton County Common Pleas Court Judge Norbert Nadel a homosexual? Does Hamilton County Prosecuting Attorney Joseph T. Deters (aka "Dirty Joe" Deters) have pictures of Norbert wearing pink panties and high heels? Do they have even more damaging information on him? There's a reason Norbert acts like a puppet for Dirty Joe.

GOOD VERSUS EVIL

The love of money is the root of all evil.  The Evil Ones want control of the $30 Million Juvenile Court budget.  But, is there more to this fight than the love and control of millions of dollars?

Judge Tracie Marie Hunter is a servant of God. Is that why the devil's most powerful, sinful, racist, white minions in Hamilton County are attacking her? Homosexuality is a still a sin. You, our faithful readers, already know that Joe Deters HAS WALKED OUT ON HIS WIFE, Melissa Deters, and their family. We hear he couldn't stop breaking one of God's Big 10 COMMANDMENS, just like Michael K. Allen. Melissa's mom, Sylvia Hendon, is pissed.

If you wanted to railroad a Godly woman, wouldn't you send the most devilish people to handle the dirty work.

BIASED COVERAGE FROM THE FIRST WORD OF THE FIRST LINE

How did Kentucky resident and Cincinnati Enquirer writer Kimball Perry summarize the first week of Judge Hunter's trial?
The accused criminal has called the judge unfair and asked him to step down.
Accused criminal?! I'm sure The Enquirer, and their parent corporation Gannett, would claim there's no bias in this description. Now that he's indicted, I'm also sure you can find stories in USA Today or The Enquirer referring to Texas Gov. Rick Perry as the "accused criminal". No.

Before he was convicted, I'm sure The Enquirer referred to former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell as an accused criminal. No.

Well, Dirty Joe has been investigated by numerous grand juries. Surely there are stories referring to him as an accused criminal, right? No.

Well, what about the people in Deters' office who got indicted and convicted of crimes? You know, people like Matt Borges (the current  He was convicted of engaging in POLITICAL CORRUPTION while working for Deters and the Hamilton County Republican Party. We can find some Enquirer stories referring to him as an accused criminal or convicted criminal, can't we? We think our Google machine is broke!!! It sent us to The Cleveland Plain Dealer. (source)
In 2004, Borges, a longtime political operative, pleased GUILTY in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court to a misdemeanor count of UNAUTHORIZED USE OF A PUBLIC OFFICE for giving PREFERENTIAL TREATMENT to certain brokers who CONTRIBUTED TO REPUBLICAN OHIO TREASURER JOE DETERS' re-election campaign.
Our sources tell us Norbert has been contributing to Deters' re-election for years. Is that why they hand-picked Norbert to handle Judge Hunter's case? By paying off Deters, is that why everyone pretends that in ultra-conservative Hamilton County, the GOP doesn't know or care about Norbert's sinful lifestyle? (Norbert couldn't get a job as a federal law clerk or working for a federal law enforcement agency because he couldn't pass the background check. His secret lifestyle would make him subject to outing.)

NORBERT FAIR OR UNFAIR?
The accused criminal has called the judge unfair and asked him to step down. Her lawyer has tried to put the county prosecutor figuratively on trial.
Forget about the past, even pre-trial, and look at Norbert's actions last week.

Our sources tell us Norbert kicked Black people off the jury for no reason but HE ALLOWED AT LEAST 4 WHITE PEOPLE TO REMAIN ON THE JURY EVEN AFTER THEY TOLD HIM THEY COULDN'T BE FAIR.

Our sources also tell us Norbert has a WHITES ONLY section of the courtroom.  The Black Press is forced to SIT IN THE BACK of the bus, uh, courtroom, while a white guy sits with Norbert's all-white staff.  (In the interest of full disclosure, Norbert reportedly claimed the reason he made exceptions for the white reporter is because he doesn't have a camera. The picture above shows Kimball -- the fat white guy wearing the white shirt -- sticking a camera inches away from a Black man's face. To her credit, Judge Tracie put an end to this sort of disorderly, disruptive, rude, and unprofessional conduct in her courtroom.)

When Kimball Perry writes that Judge Hunter called Norbert unfair, we think the evidence shows she is justified. He is unfair!!! She's supposed to speak the truth and shame the devil.

KIMBALL PERRY TRYING TO ENERGIZE A WHITE MOB

White people stick together. Kimball wrote:
Emotions continue to rise on both sides and it's likely to increase as Judge Tracie Hunter's trial enters its second week.
This boy, Kimball Perry, picked sides a long time ago. He's on the white side! That surprises no one. He pretends he's against Judge Tracie because she falsely accused another white guy at The Enquirer of doing something or other. The truth is he's a white racist. White people follow Kimball's every word and believe he tells the truth. He's their leader. We've seen him in action. We know what he's trying to do. He's trying to get white people angry. Then, if justice prevails and Judge Tracie is found NOT GUILTY, he wants to see something done to her. It's a variation on what white people have done to President Barack Obama--except Judge Tracie doesn't have Secret Service protection and she isn't always safe. They couldn't beat President Obama at the ballot box in 2008 or in 2012 (even after they "unskewed" the polls) so they set out to sue him, undermine him, and work against him. This is what they did to Judge Tracie --used the Board of Elections to keep her off the bench; use the county-funded public defender's office to sue her; used WCPO and The Enquirer to sue her; had the court administrator work against her.  At times, The Enquirer and other white media have led the attacks on Judge Tracie. At other times, they've followed Dirty Joe's orders. They want to put her in her place. The Devil comes to steal, kill, and destroy. Judge Tracie protected kids. They want the kids and now they want her for protecting them.

PRETRIAL PUBLICITY
Leading up to the trial, Hunter and her attorney, Clyde Bennett II, repeatedly said she couldn't get a fair trial in Hamilton County becasue of pretrial publicity. It took less than two days for both sides to agree upon 12 jurors and six alternates to decide Hunter's fate.
Much of the biased pretrial publicity came from Kimball Perry and The Enquirer. Sure, 700WLW and the Clear Channel radio stations did their part to poison the atmosphere and taint the jury pool.  The white media worked hand-in-hand with Dirty Joe and the Hamilton County Republican Party's figurehead leader Alex Triantafilou (Dirty Joe runs the courthouse AND the GOP).  Our sources tell us Norbert kicked Black people off the jury if they listened to the city's only black talk radio station (1230am The Buzz) but allowed whites who listen to the white talk radio stations to remain. With so much negative pretrial publicity in the white media -- people called Judge Tracie every name in the book, attacked her character, accused her of incompetence -- why else, besides bias, would Norbert allow the white talk radio listeners to remain on the jury.

Kimball is lying when he claims both sides agreed upon the jury. If you weren't there, or you weren't following the trial, or you don't know how these things work, you would have no reason to doubt Kimball's words. Here's what really happened: Norbert worked with Dirty Joe to stack the jury with people predisposed to convict Judge Tracie. He has run a Kangaroo Court. Both sides did not agree on the jury. Norbert worked with Dirty Joe to pick a jury he believes will ignore the facts and evidence and convict.

JUDGE TRACIE HUNTER IS CO-COUNSEL
Immediately before the jury was to start hearing the evidence, Hunter walked to a microphone and asked ... Norbert ... to step down as the judge presiding over her case, a practice usually carried out by the accused's attorney.
Sillyness! Even casual observers (not brainwashed people who only get their information from The Enquirer or right-wing hate radio) know that Judge Hunter is an attorney who is acting as her own co-counsel. So, it makes perfect sense for Judge Hunter to make the motion.

There's a process to have a Common Pleas Court judge recuse himself from a trial. The process involves filing a written motion. (It's been a while since I worked in a law firm, but if memory serves me correct I think there has to be a sworn affidavit.)  It is my understanding that such a written motion was previously filed. Norbert refused to step down when the motion was presented and advised Judge Tracie and her co-counsel to renew the motion if they saw him doing biased things or things that gave the appearance that he was doing biased things.  He refused to let someone unconnected to Dirty Joe handle the case. After watching Norbert show favoritism to whites and prejudice to Blacks during jury selection, it was important for someone on the defense team to renew the motion. Now, if Norbert's bias becomes an issue on appeal, the court can't claim the issue wasn't raised while the case was in pretrial and again while it was at the trial level. Judge Hunter's team put forward a written motion (we think) then followed up at the appropriate time with a new oral motion.

The rest of Kimball's story is more spin.

The Black Press is covering the trial. Black journalists are present in the courtroom. The Cincinnati Black Blog has offered to publish the other side of the story. This is desperately needed.
