Second Request For A Summary Judgment Could Land Local Judge In Hot Water

The Prince George’s County Circuit Court Judge

The Honorable  Dwight D. Jackson – Judge – 7th Judicial Circuit

It’s not surprising that a vast number of people in Prince Georges County have lost faith in the judicial system and believe that the court system is broken. 

 

On Thursday October 2, 2014 the parties to the case  JERICHO BAPTIST CHURCH MINISTRIES,INC. v.,  JOEL R. PEEBLES SR. are scheduled to appear in court. They will be there to address the ridiculous request by the Six Rogue Employees for the Judge to issue a second Summary Judgment in this case.  The six(6), self-appointed employees at Jericho are asking Prince Georges County Circuit Court Judge Dwight D. Jackson to join them and circumvent (break) the law, by not following the Maryland Court Of Special Appeals decision.   If Judge Dwight D. Jackson is bold enough to disregard the higher courts ruling and grant the six employees request for a second summary judgment he will be violating a court order which is the same as breaking the law.  He will show himself to be  an unjust judge and an unfit judge. What’s interesting is that in the past Judge Jackson has made his rulings behind closed doors a few days before the scheduled court date.

  WAS BISHOP JOEL R. PEEBLES SR., A  MEMBER OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES  IN MARCH 2009? THIS IS THE ONLY QUESTION THAT THE COURT WILL ANSWER.  IT’S NOT ROCKET SCIENCE. BISHOP JOEL PEEBLES HAS NUMEROUS DOCUMENTS SHOWING THAT HE WAS A  MEMBER OF THE BOARD.

 On June 20, 2014 the unelected self-appointed, board of 6 employees who are temporarily occupying the Jericho Landover, MD facility filed another motion for Summary judgment in the case that they filed against Bishop Joel Peebles and William Meadows 4 days after Apostle Betty died.   This move by the 6 and their lawyers is astonishing, brazen and contemptuous on all levels.

 A summary judgment is when a decision is made without a trial. “If a material fact is disputed by both sides, then the court is prohibited from granting a summary judgment.  Thus, in opposing a summary judgment, it is not necessary to show that you win on the issue.  It is only necessary that you show that a genuine as opposed to a frivolous, issue of fact exists.”  To overcome a summary judgment you only need to prove that there is a disputed fact.

October 25, 2011, Judge Dwight Jackson granted the six employees a summary judgment against Bishop Joel Peebles and Chairman William Meadows.  Bishop Joel and our board filed an appeal to the court of Special Appeals who ruled that “… “[T]he purpose of summary judgment is to determine whether there are facts in dispute that must be resolved through a more formal dispute resolution process, a trial on the merits. . . . It is not the purpose of summary judgment to resolve issues of material fact.”Md. 21 1, 229-30 (2003) (emphasis added)’Returning to the instant case, appellees, we conclude that the circuit court erred in granting motion for summary judgment because a genuine dispute of material fact exists as to whether appellant Peebles was a member of the Board.   …. In concluding that appellant Peebles was not elected as a Board member, the circuit court engaged in fact-finding, which is not a function permitted of a trial court when making a determination on summary judgment …. Because a genuine dispute of material fact existed as to whether appellant Peebles was a member of the Board, we reverse summary judgment as to both appellants and remand for further Proceedings.

In short, Judge Jackson wrongly granted the motion for summary judgment in the original trial because there WAS a disputed fact as to whether or not Pastor Joel was a member of the Board of Trustees.  It is not for a judge to decide issues of fact, that’s done by a jury.  A jury is the only appropriate fact finders in a courtroom.  The Court of Special Appeals reversed Judge Jackson decision. (The six employees are NOT the legal board) and sent it back (remand) to the lower court.  The six employees then filed an appeal to the court of Appeals which is the highest court in Maryland who declined to hear the case.

The case is now back before Judge Dwight D. Jackson. The six employees are asking Judge Jackson to make the exact same ruling that the Court of Special Appeals said was done in error. The fact that the six employees and their lawyers  think that they can manipulate a judge and get him to go against what a higher court (Court of Special Appeals) has ordered  casts a bad light on the Prince Georges County judicial system.   This shows the level of contempt that they have for the judicial system.  These questions beg to be answered- Why are these so called Christians attempting to manipulate the legal system? Are they above the law? Why are they trying to avoid a jury?  The world is watching.

Jericho Church Secretary/C.O.O. admits to signing Apostle Peebles name on bank documents

MD Court Judge Dwight Jackson once again denies us our day in court . By not allowing us to present our evidence in a trial in court his biased decision allows more time for further fraud and abuse. Jericho church Secretary/COO Denise Killen admits under oath during the deposition phase of the pretrial activity to signing Apostle Betty Peebles name on the bank signature card just about five (5) days before her death to gain access to church funds, withdrawing $27,000.00 cash out of the church account and other egregious acts.

 

 See:    Denise Killen’s own words from her deposition taken at the bottom of this page.                

                          You be the judge!

———————————————————————————————————————

Biased Judge further delays our return to our property at the Jericho City of Praise campus. But not to worry the City of Praise members still have (4) more active cases in the system. This was just a bump in the road

In a joint statement, the plaintiffs called Jackson’s decision “appalling,” because it “allows six defendants who admitted under oath to committing fraud, theft and forgery to remain in the Maryland Mega-church until the appeal or their 4 other cases go forward.” The plaintiffs cited the deposition where one of the members of the board, Killen, admitted to signing Betty Peebles name on documents and taking cash in the amount of $27,000.

In a letter to his congregation, Joel Peebles said that there are several more legal matters to be settled and the case is far from over.

“While the legal system has its twists and turns, the ways of Christ aids us in our steadfastness,” he wrote.  “While this recent case is being sent for appeal and the three remaining cases are on the road to victory, let us continue our standards of unyielding love and forgiveness.”

Legal Update: The City of Praise Congregations Articles Case

People of Praise of the City of Praise: We Know the Power of Praise!

judges-gavel
Continue to Praise our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and to pray without ceasing. Yesterday Prince George’s County Circuit Court Judge Dwight Jackson once again made a ruling against us in our Articles Case. People of Praise not to worry, This is not the end! It is far from over! This ruling by this Judge Jackson is not final! The ruling is still reviewable! We will Appeal this! Remember in addition, we still have multiple lawsuits pending, one which is not in front of Judge Jackson. It is our opinion that the Circuit Court for Prince George’s County – Civil System is broken and has failed us. We believe that Judge Dwight Jackson consistently violates rules of civil procedure with impunity. We have lost faith in the Prince George’s County circuit court system. In our opinion we believe that there should be a review of the performance and the decisions made by Judge Dwight Jackson. While this is surely a bump in a crooked the road, our God will make every crooked road straight. In the end we still win!
People of Praise let us be perfectly clear, it is our opinion that when the depositions taken from these six Unholy, UnGodly, Self-Appointed, Rogue, board of thieves are released, you will soon know what we have suspected, that money has been taken. We believe that some have enriched themselves off of church tithes and offerings. You will see the words from their own mouths. Denise Killen will answer questions about why she withdrew over “$25,000.00 in Cash” out of the church bank account. Dorothy Williams will be asked about withdrawals in Cash amounting to $13,000.00. Clarence Jackson the janitor, well, he has to answer to over $47,000.00 of funds. He gets over $91,000.00 for a salary, and that’s not enough. The Secretary Denise Killen admits under oath, that she used an electronic signature stamp three (3) days before Apostle died to get her name added to the bank accounts signature card. Hmm!
We believe this is criminal. There will be more to come.
