A federal district court judge ruled that a prior court filing was evidence when a pro series litigant requested the court to add the prior court filing to the court records. The judge had granted a summary judgment to the represented defendant based on their statute of limitations defense. The presence of this prior court filing would destroy the SOL defense and guarantee a vacated summary judgment. Equitable Tolling is allowed if a litigant filed a defective filing during the statutory period.
If you have no money, you have no access to the idiosyncrasies of the law germane to justice. These idiosyncrasies have been put in place through legislation that has been purchased in advance by lobbyists for those who can pay and are by design there to prohibit those who cannot pay from receiving equal protection in the courts. No money, no justice. This is a country for sale to the highest bidder, plain and simple.
Good lawyers can get anyone off of charges. Bob Durst was declared Not Guilty for two murders that he did in fact commit. He's on trial a third time for a separate murder! Hopefully he will be convicted this time, but I don't think the jury decisions and the fact that he is almost a billionaire is a coincidence.
I talked with a cop once. He told me that for every criminal that gets caught, 9 more get away with it. Put this same formula to those who pay hush money and buy high end lawyers, the cases that never see the light of the public eye and are decided "in chambers" and you get some pretty serious numbers. Want some examples? OJ, Ethan Couch, Edward Kennedy to name a few. Look it up.
I believe that there is all ready justice system in USA. USA has been recognized for one of the best country for justice and equality. The law and order system is also designed in the way where everyone is bought to justice. And the justice goes for everyone including the high and low people both.
Even though there was clear evidence that he did kill his wife, he still wasn't convicted. Why? He spent 9 million dollars on a "Dream Team" and he gets away with murder. It's all rooted into humanity's natural instinct greed. More for yourself and less for others. Once you see that, you start becoming much more cynical and misanthropic.
If you go to court without an attorney, you can forget about any type of fair trial. If you go to court with an attorney...you shell out thousands, maybe 10s of thousands, and you get a trial where the judge is more concerned about clearing their docket as fast as they can. That's if the police and DA even decide you're important enough to warrent their time and attention...aka, you're cost effective and politically connected.
Pardon my cynicism, but attorneys who get paid more probably work harder. America isn't a country of justice. It's a country of which lawyer convinces a judge who is right or wrong. Justices to the U.S. Supreme Court get there by having long careers in criminal justice. Those careers need law degrees, which cost money.
Money buys everything now. Look at who we currently have in office. Obama bought certain races by promising to dump money into legalizing immigration and expanding social programs. And it's not just money that can buy justice... the court systems are regularly allowing criminals to buy their own freedom in exchange for snitching. It's pathetic.

I feel that no matter how good of an attorney you have or how much money you have you cannot buy justice. I think that the justice system is in place for a reason. If you do get away with doing something wrong. You will always be accountable for your actions.
You can not buy true justice. You may be able to hire a really good lawyer that can help your side win justice, but you will never be able to have true justice because that comes from within your self. If you do not do it right than it will not feel right.
