November 2014 City of Praise Legal Update

Legal Update 1

There have been several developments within the past 90 days that have occurred in our fight to return our Landover (Jericho) campus. It is important to note that Apostle Betty Peebles died in October 2010.  The self-appointed employee board filed suit against Bishop Joel Peebles and Chairman William Meadows days after Apostle Betty Peebles died and before she was buried.  The congregation has filed 4 suits against the self-appointed board.  The congregation WON the records case and we now have both Corporate and personal bank records. The self-elected board has dragged these cases on for over FOUR (4) years.  They have used our tithes and offerings to pay their lawyers. The only ones benefiting from this is the lawyers.  There are currently four (4) active cases.  The statute of limitations has run out.  There can be no new cases.  They have run out of tricks and have boxed themselves in.  They have avoided a jury trial for four years.  Their day of reckoning is rapidly approaching.  It is imperative that we pray for the souls that will be displaced.  It seems that they have stuck their heads in the sand.  Everyone knows that their days are numbered but them.

Dictionary:

Summary Judgment:  a court order ruling when a judge determines that there are no disputed material issues of fact in a case, and the side asking for it is entitled to judgment as a matter of law.  As used here, “material issues of fact” refers to any facts that could allow a fact-finder to decide against one side. If the motion is granted, there will be no trial.

Breaking News: In the case Jericho Baptist Church Ministries v. Joel R. Peebles Sr.

Breaking News II

 

The self-appointed, rogue, employee, board of trustees wants to avoid a trial so bad that they have asked Judge Dwight D. Jackson to ignore the ruling of the Maryland Court of Special Appeals.

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 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.

Breaking News: D.C. Judge Denies UnGodly, Unelected, Self-Appointed, Rogues Motion to Dismiss case

download

April 23, 2014  Today a District of Columbia Judge ruled to deny Jericho Maryland’s motion to dismiss. This will move the case forward to trial which will decide the governance of the Jericho City of Praise.

This is just one of four active cases.

Anything that the Six Ungodly, Unholy, Self-Appointed, Rogue Board of Thieves put in place including staff will not be binding. Don’t measure for drapes just yet!

WE WILL BE BACK!   KEEP THE LIGHTS ON!

The 2014 Deposition of Jericho Church Secretary/ C.O.O. Alma Denise Killen: The Undisputed Boss of the New Hireling

Alma Denise Killen – Jericho church Secretary turned C.O.O. and Chairman of the Board of Thieves is the Boss of the New Hireling Jasmine Sculark. Wait until the new hireling clashes with that Jezebel Spirit on Alma Denise Killen.

If there was ever any doubt in anyone’s mind that this was in fact a hostile takeover, read Alma Denise’s 2014 testimony starting on page 161, she outlines the hostile takeover blueprint.

pic crook DeNice 2_edited-1

Beginning on Page 30, in her 2014 deposition Alma Denise Killen says that the Apostle was running the church up until the day she died.  But in her 2011 deposition she said, because of Apostle’s condition she would not have asked her to make any major decisions during the last months of her life. If that was the case why did Alma Denise use an electronic signature as authorization on a bank signature card 5 days before Apostle Betty died and fax it to the bank, to get herself as the signer on the churches accounts???

This question begs to be answered, if Alma Denise signed her own name on the bank document and then used a digital signature for Apostle Betty name, then Apostle Betty could not access the account anymore because her signature would not match. Someone in cancer treatment and dying can’t have a perfect signature. Only Alma Denise’s signature would be a correct match to access funds.

On page 11, Alma Denise says:  that she is familiar with apostle’s signature

On page 155-156, Alma Denise says:  she did not sign things for Apostle Betty

On page 275 – 277, Alma Denise says:  she did sign things for Apostle Betty and she had a stamp

On page 278, Alma Denise says: Apostle Betty ran the church until her last breath, if that was so, why would there be a need for Alma to sign Apostle’s Betty’s name.

In her 2011 deposition: Alma Denise recounts the day that she  and the Janitor and Bookkeeper  supposedly signed documents  to become trustees. She said some people came in and signed their names and left. But in her 2014 deposition she states that there was a full board meeting, with opening prayer, minutes and everything. Alma is she lying now or were you lying then?  Now!

Alma Denise Killen – withdrew $27,000.00 cash out of the churches bank account, then says she couldn’t remember what it was for.

See Alma Denise admit to paying her husband, a minister at the church Stewie Killen $1000.00 for preaching one Sunday. Can you say Nepotism!!

We Can’t MakeThis Stuff Up,  That’s Why It Is So Hard for Some People To Believe!
