Humble Doctor Michelle Legall-Johnson Is Back Before She Left Houston Federal Court

After non-suiting her first removed federal case, Legall-Johnson finds herself removed again from State Court to Rusk St Courthouse.

Legall-Johnson v. JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A

(4:22-cv-01560)

District Court, S.D. Texas

MAY 16, 2022 | REPUBLISHED BY LIT: MAY 19, 2022

The case is returned to Judge Sim Lake.  Final Judgment of Foreclosure on July 15.

The Foreclosure Mill Lawyers Wanted This House For A Quick Profit

It would appear that counsel for Legall-Johnson abandoned her and failed to withdraw. Judge Lake did not issue a show cause* when there was no reply and a scheduling conference set for September, rather he issued a memo and judgment, dismissing Legall-Johnson’s claims with prejudice.

*Associated Marine Equipment LLC v. Jones, 301 F. App’x 346, 350-51 (5th Cir. 2008)

(“But Jones is not asking to be excused for the mistakes, carelessness, or incompetence of his counsel, distinguishing his case from Pryor and Wilson. He is instead asking to be relieved of the consequences of his attorney abandoning him without his knowledge.

As recounted above, Jones asserts that he could not contact his counsel despite his repeated attempts to do so. Indeed, from the evidence in the record, Jones’s scenario seems to resemble more closely that of the parties in Seven Elves, where counsel’s abandonment of his clients warranted relief from the judgment.

See 635 F.2d at 403.

In Seven Elves, counsel had ceased representing the defendants without their knowledge.

Id., at 399.

From the evidence before us in the present case, it appears that Jones’s counsel might have done the very same.

Further, the equities of this case appear to favor Jones.

Cf. id. at 402-03.

Jones was not using his Rule 60(b) motion as a substitute for appeal.

The record indicates that Jones was completely abandoned by his attorney, resulting in a series of motions and decisions in AME’s favor that went entirely unopposed and unquestioned.

More importantly, the judgment against Jones bears the characteristics of a default judgment: the court entered it in Jones’s absence prior to taking any evidence apart from that related to his failure to respond to discovery. I

ndeed, Jones never had an opportunity to present his case on the merits.

And, to top it off, the district court ordered that Jones bear AME’s fees, expenses, and costs.”)

What is a CIP and is there a deadline?

A CIP is a “Certificate of Interested Persons” and it has to be filed within 15 days of the ORDER for Initial Conference.

When was the CIP due in this case?

On or before June 7, 2022.

Why has lawyer Sonya Chandler Anderson not filed one?

Because lawyers are above the law and friends of the court in S.D. Texas.

Motion to dismiss filed 7 days after removal, in violation of the rules. It’s percolatin’ before Judge Lake.

Laws In Texas first started as an independent investigative blog about the Financial Crisis and how the Banks and Government are colluding against the citizens and homeowners of the State of Texas, relying upon a system of #FakeDocs and post-crisis legal precedents, specially created by the Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit to foreclose on homeowners around this great State. We are not lawyers. We do not offer legal advice. That stated, LIT's Blog has grown tremendously during the three or so years it has been operating and our reach is now nationwide as we expand via our micro-blogs in various states. Join us as we strive to bring back justice and honor to our Judiciary and Government employees, paid for by Citizens.
