Appellate Circuit

The Hopkins CA5 Appeal Commences in Earnest. Mark D. Hopkins. Shelley L. Hopkins. Hopkins Law, PLLC, An Austin Texas Rogue Law Firm.

When the decisions of courts of justice are made, they must, it is true, be executed; but the power of executing them is ministerial, not judicial.

LIT COMMENTARY

This page regarding federal appeal 20-20209 Burke v Hopkins, 5th Cir., will be updated frequently.

Filed; July 6, 2020.

Appellants, Joanna Burke and John Burke (“Burkes”), now file a Motion to Stay Proceedings[1]  for 4 [four] months or until the pending matters which affect this appeal are resolved. The Burkes rely upon the following facts:-

The lower court decided the case prematurely, (ROA.1116 –1266) and;

Dismissing the Burkes case in violation of an executive order[2] and in advance of an agreed postponement by the parties to reschedule the in-person court hearing – due to COVID-19 – thus denying the Burkes their constitutional rights to a fair hearing.[3] Rendering judgment punished[4] the Burkes by extending litigation to an appeal and increasing the Burkes injury-in-fact due to the additional time and delay to correct the order and remand the case to the lower court. Without appeal by the Burkes, Judge Hittner’s entry of judgment would have the effect of accelerating the current order of foreclosure issued by this court in Deutsche Bank Nat’l Tr. Co. v. Burke, 902 F.3d 548 (5th Cir. 2018), in violation of the due process clause. Carrying the judgment into effect is not a judicial act, it is a ministerial act[5], which violated Gov. Abbott’s executive order and;

The pending request for reconsideration with BODA (Supreme Court of Texas) re Mark Daniel Hopkins complaint, (EXHIBIT BODA) and;

The pending complaint against S.D. Texas Judge David Hittner (ROA.1167 – 1176) which includes a request for impeachment[6], and;

For the reasons stated in the related case against Ocwen, as per the third motion to stay filed with this court on July 5th, 2020 (EXHIBIT OCWEN).

Conclusion: Until such times as the pending filings and opinions are issued, the Burkes now request this court grants an expedited Motion to Stay Proceedings until the pending matters described above are ruled upon, OR in the alternative, stay proceedings for a period of no less than four months. The Motion to Stay Proceedings and Motion to Hold Case in Abeyance is not brought for the purpose of delay and therefore Appellants respectfully requests this court grants the joint Motion.

Respectfully submitted,

[1] See Consumer Fin. Prot. Bureau v. Source for Pub. Data, L.P., 903 F.3d 456 (5th Cir. 2018) “Accordingly, the district court ordered Public Data to respond to the CID, but this court granted a stay pending the resolution of this appeal.”

And; Burgess v. Fed. Deposit Ins. Corp., 871 F.3d 297 (5th Cir. 2017) “For the following reasons, we grant Burgess’s motion and stay the FDIC’s order pending resolution of the merits of the petition or further order of this court.”

And; Natl Federation of Indep Bus v. R. Acosta, Secretary LABR (17-10054) COURT ORDER granting motion to stay. Document 504035357, Jun 15, 2017.

[2] See In re Abbott, No. 20-50264 (5th Cir. Apr. 7, 2020) and; “The judicial power and the executive power over sentences are readily distinguishable. To render judgment is a judicial function. To carry the judgment into effect is an executive function.” – United States v. Benz, 282 U.S. 304, 311 (1931).

[3] See ROA.1171 referencing footnote 18 and the Burkes Complaint re Hittner in general; ROA.1169 – 1176.

[4] “The general rule is that judgments, decrees and orders are within the control of the court during the term at which they were made. They are then deemed to be “in the breast of the court” making them, and subject to be amended, modified, or vacated by that court. Goddard v. Ordway, 101 U.S. 745, 752… In the present case the power of the court was exercised to mitigate the punishment, not to increase it, and is thus brought within the limitation. Wharton, in Criminal Pl. and Pr., 9th ed., § 913, says: “As a general practice, the sentence, when imposed by a court of record, is within the power of the court during the session in which it is entered, and may be amended at any time during such session, provided a punishment already partly suffered be not increased.”  United States v. Benz, 282 U.S. 304, 306-07 (1931).

[5] In discussing the independence of the Judiciary in his famous Lectures on Law, James Wilson, an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, said this: “When the decisions of courts of justice are made, they must, it is true, be executed; but the power of executing them is ministerial, not judicial.” 1 JAMES WILSON, Of Government (1790), reprinted in COLLECTED WORKS OF JAMES WILSON 689, 703 (Kermit L. Hall & Mark David Hall eds., 2007).

[6] See; The branches of government have the power to correct one another’s legal errors.  If Congress passes and the President signs a law, its constitutionality is not beyond question.  Marbury v. Madison, 5 U.S. (1 Cranch) 137, 177 (1803). If an officer incorrectly exercises his statutory powers, he can be sued. – Little v. Barreme, 6 U.S. (2 Cranch) 170, 170 (1804). If the President commits a high crime or misdemeanor, he can be impeached – U.S. CONST. art. II, § 4. So can judges – 135 CONG. REC. H1811 (1989) and See Act, Section 354 – citing ROA.1173, footnote 31.

Laws In Texas is a blog about the Financial Crisis and how the banks and government are colluding against the citizens and homeowners of the State of Texas and relying on 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. We are citizens of the State of Texas who have spent a decade in the court system in Texas and have been party to during this period to the good, the bad and the very ugly.
