Appeal filed to Third Circuit Court

An appeal to the US Third Circuit Court of Appeals is asking the judges there to overturn decisions by a lower court and send the case back to the lower courts in front of another judge.

John F. Marchisotto filed the appeal for a variety of reasons, chief of which is the court system and those working for the court conspired against him to deny his rights.

Mr. Marchisotto is a retired New York City police department sergeant.

“I personally always treated people properly, and professionally, in my career in law enforcement, and never abused my authority, or power against anyone,” he said.

The way he was treated by the New Jersey court system was not equitable, not legal and against the provisions guaranteed in the Constitution.

“I am hoping to make changes in a very broken judicial system. Pro se litigants, should be treated fairly, and not be abused by state, and federal court judges, police, prosecutors, and other officials who enjoy abusing their authority or powers,” he said. “The judicial system should be helping Pro se litigants rather than trying to hurt them. NJ Courts make it almost impossible for a non-attorney to succeed.”

“NJ Superior Court Judge’s, Margaret Goodzeit, and Alberto Rivas “Abused their Authority” “Rigged” manipulated, and controlled by deceptive or dishonest means. This is what they do to Pro se litigants. “The Advisory Committee on Judicial Conduct is an useless organization put in place to appease the public,’ he said.

His appeal says in part, “A jury trial was also demanded by Appellant, and the district court was only interested in dismissing his complaint against the high-profile state and judicial defendants.”

In his appeal, Mr. Marchisotto says Judge Margaret Goodzeit, and Judge Rivas “Abused their Authority”,  improperly “rigged” and dismissed his entire case they heard.

Among other things, Mr. Marchisotto said another District Court judge should have recused himself because of a previous relationship with one of the defendants. “The Chief Justice was his boss, and accelerated his career, and someone who he would be very loyal to. It is the simple basis that humans develop relationships with people they work with and for,“ he said.

By taking his case to the Third Circuit court, he said this sends a message to the court system in New Jersey. He also hopes the cease will bring needed reforms to the courts.

“I am one of a few Pro se’s that has the privilege, to bring my appeal before the 2nd highest court in the land. I hope my voice will pave the way to a better future for all other Pro se litigants that could not get their voice heard,” he said. “The New Jersey Courts are very poorly run, and it’s time for change and new leadership.”

He also objects to the “judicial immunity” judges like to use when someone threatens to sue.

“If a judge does something wrong form the bench, something has to be done. Unfortunately in New Jersey, it seems the entire judicial branch covers up for each other. Bad judges are allowed to stay put and can continue to hand down miscarriages of justice.

This has led many people to one lawyer known for his expertise in insurance claims on property damaged by hurricanes.

This has quickly established Mr. Blackwell as the state of Florida’s go to attorney for Hurricane damage insurance claims.

Known for his passion and hard-work, Mr. Blackwell has a colorful and hard-hitting litigation style. “When a client’s home or business is hit by a hurricane and their insurance company refuses to pay, they need a lawyer who will stand by them through thick and thin, and say to the insurance companies, ‘If you want to continue to withhold payment, you are going to be in for the fight of your life,’” said Blackwell.

Litigation Funding Is Ready For A Wider Reach In The Russian Market

Although the Russian litigation finance market is at an early stage of development, a surge in the interest for legal funding solutions could be observed over the last year. While third party financing for legal proceedings has previously been provided by private investors or by law firms as an auxiliary business, specialized litigation finance companies have only recently appeared on the market.

“Litigation finance is still a novelty to the Russian legal sphere. However, we have observed widespread support among the judicial community and government structures, who aim to make the Russian judicial system more accessible. “ says Aleksander Bogdanov, director of Seitenberg LLC. “Over the last year we’ve observed a large increase in the requests for litigation funding in Russia”.

As of 2019, Seitenberg LLC, founded by European and Russian business, finance and legal professionals, provides funding for commercial litigation and arbitration in Russia and the CIS. Based in St. Petersburg, Seitenberg funds cases starting from a value of ten million rubles, with a particular focus on contract disputes, shareholder disputes, insolvency cases, intellectual property disputes and commercial fraud as well as divorce cases.

Seitenberg is the first Russian litigation finance provider with particular expertise with international clients. As of February 2020, more than two thirds of cases funded by Seitenberg came from international companies or Russian subsidiaries of international companies. With a team made up of four nationalities, with ten different languages spoken, Seitenberg’s current field of work spans over six countries.

“Litigation Funding in Russia is particularly interesting for international businesses, who otherwise often refrain from pursuing even the most promising claims, due to the financial and other risks involved”, Aleksander Bogdanov explains.

Seitenberg provides its clients with tailor-made litigation funding solutions for their Russian operations, keeping up with international reporting and compliance standards. Besides financing, Seitenberg provides its international clients with analytical, business intelligence, AML compliance and asset tracing services, all provided by in-house teams.
