Below is a copy of the notice of removing Lois Conroy, signed by Trisha Farkarlun and provided to the Court 4/25/13. It was never explained why Judge Alexander, who apparently stated from the bench that it was her case, would have been removed by Administration, and Conroy put on the file. Why it is that members of the public are told they only have one removal (even if 20 judges are assigned – by virtue of Hennepin County ‘policy’) but Court Administration, which is not even a party, removes judges all the time – apparently any time they want. This is not ok.
Notice the handwritten note,
“Hennepin [County court] does not have jurisdiction, I am filing this because I have great fear of appearing in front of her.”
Even if Hennepin County Court had jurisdiction after Farkarlun’s conviction was REVERSED in 2010, Conroy surely did not have jurisdiction after the notice of removal was filed.
What is going on?
Your Public demands answers to the following:
1. Why was Alexander removed? Who made the decision?
2. Why was Conroy put on? And why such late notice? I am specifically asking whether the switcheroo was because of the removal papers.
3. Did someone testify under oath in favor of a bench warrant? What facts supported probable cause that a crime had been committed? I cannot imagine that there are any. Was the warrant just a MnCIS entry? And if so, who made the computer entry? Why can’t I look at MnCIS and tell what human being will stand by this warrant?
