Cleveland Municipal Court Judge Lynn McLaughlin Murray, who is accused of harassing Community Activist and Journalist Kathy Wray Coleman in exchange for an endorsement from Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson for her upcoming Nov. run to hold onto her seat, has been asked to cancel a sentencing date on May 10 on a charge of resisting arrest by Coleman's new attorney, Sandra Harding.

McLauglin Murray, who was appointed in Jan. by former Democratic Gov. Ted Strickland to replace former Cleveland Municipal Court Judge Kathleen Ann Keough and is running against Assistant Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Pinkey Carr in the upcoming Nov. election in hopes of retaining the seat, is accused of quid pro quo activity with Jackson and others against the 18-year investigative journalist and former biology teacher.

And the harassed Black woman is not without credentials as her enemies might hope. She has a bachelor's degree in biological science, two master's degrees with straight A transcripts, and straight A's as a then doctoral student at the University of Akron who competed all coursework and passed all comprehensive exams on a full tuition scholarship following induction into the prestigious Pi Lambda Theta International Honor Society.

At issue is the fact that sole arresting White male Cuyahoga County Deputy Sheriff Gerald Pace has never filed a complaint against Coleman, did not testify or accuse her of resisting his 2008 arrest at the Cuyahoga County Justice Center, or any other crime, and allegedly came to the two day trial in May of 2009 before Keough on the resisting arrest issue and other misdemeanor charges that Coleman was exonerated of in support of her. Keough had also been endorsed by Jackson for her successful run last year for an open seat on the Ohio Eighth District Court of Appeals, and she secured the endorsement from the Call and Post Newspaper too, following her harassment of Coleman, though it and Jackson refused to endorse any Blacks seeking judgeships that year and all three of those women lost a bid for judge.

"I have been repeatedly threatened and told that Judge McLaughlin Murray, who was appointed in Jan to replace Judge Keough on the bench, will lose Mayor Jackson's endorsement if she does not jail me for not resisting Deputy Sheriff Pace's 2008 illegal arrest of me in an effort to stop any upcoming protests as to the June 6 capital murder trial of alleged serial killer of 11 Black women on Imperial Ave Anthony Sowell," said Coleman, who leads the Imperial Women, a group founded around the tragedy that has protested several times, including in front of the mayor's home, saying Black women are still at risk for murder and rape and that Jackson's all non-Black law enforcement leadership team, including Police Chief Michael McGraft, Chief Prosecutor Victor Perez, and Law Director Robert Triozzi, contributed to the Imperial Ave. fiasco. "It is a sad day when a deranged and corrupt White judge can sentence a Black woman for not resisting the arrest of a White county deputy sheriff that has not accused her of it and in violation of her Sixth Amendment right to confrontation and Cleveland NAACP officials and the Call and Post Newspaper, that published 38 articles written by me in 2008 when I was illegally arrested that still owes the last installment payment of $7 thousand, will not speak up due to greed, corruption, fear, the innate hatred of Black people, and a psychotic Black mayor's hold on the city's Black newspaper with his money and undue influence."

Coleman said the story unravels like this:

She was lured to the Cuyahoga County Justice Center on Aug 7, 2008 by Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas Judge John O'Donnell under the guise of a hearing on a simple motion for an extension to respond to the opposing party's motion, with the urging of Cuyahoga County Judge Timothy McGinty. O'Donnell is presiding over a civil lawsuit and counter suit involving Chase Mortgage Company, and McGinty was presiding over a lawsuit filed by Coleman involving the cities of Shaker Hts and Beachwood, and others. It is now on appeal for the second time in the Ohio Eighth District Court of Appeals after McGinty's second dismissal of it last year, one made in retaliation for the appellate court's previous reinstatement of it. And it followed Coleman's exoneration by a Shaker Hts. jury in 2005 of a misdemeanor telecommunications charge brought per Beachwood and Shaker Hts law director Margaret Anne Cannon on behalf of the City of Beachwood in retaliation for published Call and Post cover story articles that Coleman had written that generated community protests at City Council meetings around alleged housing discrimination in Shaker Hts against Black home and apartment complex owners. Though some lawsuits were settled with the property owners around the alleged racial discrimination in housing Cannon and other Shaker Hts officials had it in for Coleman and blamed her for the community protests around the matter. (Note: Read on further down for an explanation of how the arrest by Pace occurred that day of Aug. 7, 2008 when O'Donnell had lured Coleman to the Justice Center as to the hearing relative to the suit and counter suit as to Chase Mortgage Company)

Coleman said that Call and Post Associate Publisher and Editor Connie Harper had advised her to fight the telecommunications charge pending in Shaker Hts. court in 2005, where Shaker officials had a woman ask Coleman to call her two times for documents in the Chase Mortgage Company lawsuit as a set up and without any proof that she had allegedly told her not to call. Specifically, Harper told Coleman to reject an offer by prosecutors made to her attorney Terry Gilbert of dismissal of the criminal charge in exchange for dropping her counter suit against Chase Mortgage Company and to stop writing articles on alleged racial discrimination against Blacks by Shaker Hts officials such as Cannon and allegedly by others. And after Coleman took the stand and testified the Shaker Hts. jury found her not guilty in under an hour, and after the woman, Complainant Myrna R. Gill of Beachwood whom Coleman is also suing for malicious prosecution and other deliberate illegalities relative to the suit before McGinty that is now on appeal, was exposed by Gilbert on the stand at the two day Shaker Hts trial as an outright liar. She was subsequently investigated for perjury but not charged because she is White and had done the bidding for Cannon and Shaker Hts officials in seeking the malicious prosecution against Coleman.

Obsessed and angry over losing the malicious prosecution criminal case in Shaker Hts in 2005 and over Coleman's Call and Post articles around alleged discrimination against Black Cleveland schools administrators, teachers and children when Mike White was Cleveland's mayor where she represents the Cleveland Municipal School District too and in 1998 helped it get release from the now defunct desegregation court order, Cannon got the City of Mayfield Hts., where she represents its prosecutors, to bring a fictitious misdemeanor charge in 2007 in the Lyndhurst Municipal Court. It hears cases brought by Mayfield Hts. prosecutors and police, among prosecutors and police of other surrounding municipalities. That charge, brought by Mayfield Hts. Prosecutor George Argie, who is now under investigation by the FBI as to the county corruption probe, that was later dismissed, pertained to a free wireless router that Coleman bought at the now defunct Circuit City Department Store along with some $600 in computer equipment. Store managers were illegally handing out Ethernet converters instead due to a federal court injunction on the wireless routers and Coleman threatened to expose the activity and picket the store, and officials there had read her articles on Shaker Hts when repairing her computer.

After Lyndhurst Municipal Court Judge Mary Kaye Bozza harassed Coleman at a pretrial on the wireless router charge brought by the City of Mayfield Hts and had her stalked by police at her home, she recused herself from Coleman's case and then contacted then Ohio Supreme Court Chief Justice Thomas Moyer, who died last April, and he sent Gustalo Nunez, a retired 76-year old former Loraine Municipal Court .

When Coleman filed an affidavit of prejudice against Nunez Moyer objected saying it could not be heard because if he assigns a judge before it is filed the party cannot secure a sitting judge in the county to replace Bozza on the case as an affidavit of prejudice would require and that he could handpick whomever he wants, and a visiting judge as far away as places like Toledo. Coleman then sued in the Ohio Eighth District Court of Appeals (via a petition for a writ of prohibition) over his handpicked assignment by Moyer and the routine assignments of former and current Ohio trial court judges to cases also by handpicking Nunez, O'Donnell, Moyer and McGinty began harassing her further. Thereafter, O'Donnell ordered her to his courtroom over the Chase Mortgage Company civil case with McGinty's insistence, who had the civil case as to the malicious prosecution in Shaker Hts. before him and is a former assistant county prosecutor himself. And after O'Donnell's civil hearing of Aug 7, 2008 Coleman, which is mentioned at the onset of the herein story on Coleman's ordeal, was attacked in the hallway and arrested for Lyndhurst and Mayfield Hts. officials, Cannon, Nunez , Moyer and others. But deputy sheriff Pace was the one who arrested her on Aug 7, 2008 per an order by Nunez where she fell sick and was rushed by ambulance to the county owned Metro-Health Hospital. The journalist was harassed in the ambulance too and Cleveland EMS Commissioner Ed Eckert had the White male medics falsify documents to lie and say that Coleman appeared before O'Donnell for a criminal proceeding rather than civil litigation involving Chase Mortgage Company, and though apprised of it, Mayor Jackson ignored her subsequent complaint about it, siding with the White medics and corrupt White judges angry over Call and Post articles on race discrimination and other issues, and because she had sued seeking judicial assignments of Ohio trial court judges at random.

 At the Metro-Health Hospital Coleman was harassed by Mayfield Hts police saying she better quit suing to have judges assigned at random rather than handpicked and that she better stop writing Call and Post articles that they did not agree with. Cleveland Attorney James Hardiman, a Cleveland NAACP officer and now head of the Cleveland ACLU, came to the hospital after Cleveland NAACP President and Call and Post General Counsel George Forbes was contacted and lied and said that he would call her back in a half an hour. And after Hardiman's go ahead, hospital officials then guarded her room and refused to let her leave saying she had hypertension and a heart problem, the latter that proved later to be a lie.

The next morning Mayfield Hts police busted into her hospital room and dragged her to the Cuyahoga County Jail per an order from Nunez, and O'Donnell relative Kevin O'Donnell, a booking Sgt, and others, then interrogated her over her Call and Post articles and other writings, the non-monetary judicial assignment lawsuit that had been filed in the appellate court and the investigation of judicial malfeasance that she was doing for the Call and Post. She was then taken down stairs and surrounded by about 10 correction officers and nurses and when she asked if their harassment was why R & B singer Sean Levert had been murdered there a White female head nurse had a corrections officer pull her pants down in front of everybody to give her a shot to the behind of an unknown knockout drug. After the insertion of the intimidation drug she was then stripped naked, and put back in the jail cell supervised by a disgruntled male employee, where she says she was potentially raped.

The next day she asked to be put in the regular population for safety where she developed a relationship with the women, who protected her and gave her investigative data. She learned that she had no charges pending there and no bond, though her family members and community activists were trying to get her out and activists were staging an upcoming protest. Forbes demanded $2 thousand for his office to assist her, though the then bankrupt Call and Post that he represents still owed her thousands of dollars for her published freelance work that it made money on, including her one-on-one interview with now U.S. President Barack Obama. She had been a paid freelance writer for the newspaper since 1993, which was led by the John Buatamante family, then the publisher of the Call and Post until 1998 when international boxing promoter Don King became the publisher. And under the Buatamante's, and then editors Susan Griffith and Shelley Shockley, who backed their reporters against then Mayor White and others, Coleman got her initial training, and long before Forbes and the current regime came into power to throw reporters to the wolves for the first real dollar that came their way, and to permit Jackson to target reporters as he pleases, and with outright permission and encouragement.

On the third day at the county jail, which had no jurisdiction to hold Coleman and was Sheriff Gerald McFaul's venue to house political prisoners for his Democratic political friends, White male head jail warden Kevin McDonough, under the leadership of the since criminally prosecuted and now resigned sheriff, had Mayfield Hts police pick her up where before that he harassed her and said put her in chains and shackles. Mayfield Hts police then stopped for lunch and then drove around with her handcuffed and perspiring in the back seat of the police cruiser. Mayfield Hts. Patrolman Parker, who is Black, called Cleveland Clinic officials angry over articles that she had written that were published in the Call and Post about not giving enough back to the Black community for advice on how to handle Coleman, and he criticized Call and Post Publisher Don King to Coleman, saying that he could not stand him. The two policemen then jailed her in the Mayfield Hts jail and the next day, on or about Aug 11, 2008, and while activists were ready to protest, former Ohio Eighth District Court of Appeals Judge Sara Harper, an attorney and Connie Harper's sister, came and got her. Sara Harper, who allegedly told Coleman when she came and got her that Forbes is no good, ultimately had the illegal misdemeanor charge around the free wireless router that was pending in Lyndhurst dismissed and after she was released from capture by Mayfield Hts police she and Editor Connie Harper had her write a a five-part series titled "Jailed Reporter Tells Her Story." That series was published in the Call and Post over a six-week period and sold so rapidly at the news stands that Connie Harper would put ads or stories of Black politicians who were endorsed by the newspaper next to the series for greater publicity.

Angry over not having a strong case around the free wireless router and still anxious to destroy Coleman, Lyndhurst officials then contacted law director Triozzi, a former Cleveland judge and friend to Shaker Hts and Beachwood Law Director Margaret Anne Cannon, and he usurped the role of chief prosecutor Perez and brought charges on Sept 30, 2008 on behalf of the City of Cleveland of resisting Pace's Aug 7, 2008 Justice Center arrest outside of O'Donnell's courtroom relative to the hearing regarding the Chase Mortgage Company civil litigation. This was even though Nunez and Lyndhurst officials had ordered the arrest and had dismissed all charges against Coleman. Coleman was also charged with making false alarms for allegedly not being sick when she was carried to Metro-Hospital in the ambulance following the arrest and diagnosed with hypertension and held against her will with the help of Forbes and Hardiman. And misdemeanor obstruction of official business and aggravated disorderly conduct, also for falling ill the day of the Aug 7, 2008 arrest, rounded off the four malicious prosecution charges brought by Triozzi.

The case brought by Triozzi was handed to Keough, who harassed Coleman at pretrials, threatening to send her to what she called "my clinic," where she illegally volunteered to be over the Cleveland Municipal Court Psychiatric Clinic to send people there that she wanted to harass for her political friends and to illegally diagnose them without the mental health license required by law for undue monies and to defame them. At the two day trial before Keough that began on May 8, 2009, where Coleman took the stand in her own defense, community activists and legal affiliates swarmed the courtroom. Call and Post officials tried to convince Coleman that Jackson had nothing to do with the malicious prosecution case before Keough though he and Triozzi had city prosecutors dog the Black newspaper, calling it a rag that nobody reads in closing arguments before the jury. Call and Post officials had unsuccessfully begged Coleman not to testify, and Connie Harper and Sara Harper backed off of a promise to testify as character witnesses per Sara Harper's determination, who wanted to protect her sister from the harassment that Coleman was encountering by Forbes, Jackson and others where Forbes had been trying to get Connie Harper fired but Publisher King would not buy it.

During that circus of a trial before Keough in May of 2009 Keough doubled as judge and prosecutor, taking the jury down the hall hoping to show that Coleman was screaming when she was illegally attacked and arrested by Pace outside of O'Donnell's courtroom on Aug. 7, 2008 and should be convicted of making false alarms and aggravated disorderly conduct for falling ill, though to no avail. She also directed a Cleveland Clinic juror to ask questions in the middle of trial that the prosecution negligently failed to ask of O'Donnell's staff attorney, whom he later fired, and she told the prosecution to bring in somebody to testify for Pace after he told the prosecution he would tell the truth. Additionally, Keough had prosecutors lie to the jury and say that allegedly running before an arrest is resisting when it is not, where to resist an arrest the defendant must first be in control of the arresting officer. The judge also corrupted Coleman's then paid trial lawyer, Carole A. Lohr, but not in enough time to get across the board convictions. And after giving illegal jury instructions with Lohr's approval that told the jury that the person brought in for Pace to testify could testify and it was not hearsay in violation of the Ohio Rules of Evidence, she sent the jury to deliberate with the Cleveland Clinic juror that she had directed to ask questions in the middle of trial for the prosecution as the jury foreman. And he tried his best to corrupt the jury for Keough, jurors said after trial.

In the end Coleman was found not guilty of all but resisting Pace's Aug 7, 2008 Justice Center arrest outside of O'Donnell's courtroom following the Chase Mortgage Company civil litigation hearing, a problem since arresting deputy sheriff Pace did not testify or accuse her of a crime, though he attended the two-day trial, and where jurors said afterwards that Keough, who is White, made them issue the illegal and racist resisting arrest jury verdict against the Black journalist and community activist via illegal jury instructions. Keough then set sentencing for seven-weeks later and a day before Coleman was to argue in the Ohio Eighth District Court of Appeals as to the civil suit as to the malicious prosecution in Shaker Hts around housing discrimination articles that McGinty had erroneously dismissed. Keough's seven-week delay in sentencing on the illegal resisting arrest verdict that she orchestrated was so that she could jail Coleman in an effort to stop her oral argument before the appellate court in June 2009 relative to the original lawsuit that she had filed before McGinty in response to the malicious criminal prosecution of her in Shaker Hts in 2005 that he had dismissed in 2008. And that lawsuit followed Coleman's exoneration by a Shaker Hts jury in 2005 of the telecommunications charge leveled in retaliation for her Call and Post articles on racism in housing against Blacks allegedly by Cannon and other Shaker Hts. officials.

Coleman then filed affidavits of prejudice against Keough, the first one which by state law stopped the sentencing and permitted the journalist to argue before the appellate court that reinstated McGinty's dismissal of the lawsuit, though the corrupt and racist McGinty dismissed it again last year in retaliation for the previous reinstatement by the appellate court and the second dismissal of the lawsuit is currently on appeal. But in spite of damning evidence of prejudice by Keough both affidavits of prejudice were denied by Keough's Democratic friends, then Chief Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas Chief Judge Nancy McDonnell, who thereafter took a leave for a double lung transplant at the Cleveland Clinic that Blacks can rarely get, and acting Chief Eileen A. Gallagher, now an Eighth District Court of Appeals judge like Keough.

Coleman was then advised by her father, Dr. James M. Coleman, and others, to stay away from Keough because she might be unbalanced and could jail her for Moyer, Nunez, Bozza, McGinty, O'Donnell and others, and she might be potentially raped, again. Keough then issued a bench warrant and had Coleman picked up at a protest last July and jailed for Jackson and others, where the mayor was still angry over protests led by Coleman around the Imperial Ave. Murders, including the one on Dec 19, 2009 in front of his home, held just nearly two months after city officials announced on Halloween day that they had discovered what would ultimately become the remains of 11 murdered women on Imperial Ave.

Though Coleman paid the bond following the arrest and jailing last July per Keough's directive, she was still kept overnight and the next day Cleveland Judge Anita Laster Mays released her, and directed Cleveland jail officials to stop the harassment, where the journalist was put in an isolated jail cell with trash and a urine soaked floor cot and allegedly harassed by an inmate who said her uncle was an attorney and a friend to Forbes. After release she was told that she is "not going to stop until they get you in jail for good," though she responded that she would fight malicious prosecutions against her because she has no choice because Keough, O'Donnell McGinty, Moyer, Cannon, Bozza and Nunez, all White Democrats, except for now deceased Republican Ohio Supreme Court Chief Justice Moyer, who was handpicking judges and assigning them to cases to fix them, and a few others, had become obsessed with her and blinded with vengeance, and in complete disregard of the law.

In Jan. McLaughlin Murray was appointed by Strickland to complete Keough's unexpired six-year term that ends this year where Keough had been rewarded by both Jackson and the Call and Post, with the Black newspaper's endorsement of her allegedly via a double team action by Forbes' operatives over Connie Harper. Keough, however, needed neither in the general election but needed Jackson's endorsement to beat Cuyahoga County Judge Ron Suster in last May's Democratic primary by 3200 votes where Connie Harper endorsed Suster for the Call and Post before Forbes could intervene. And Keough went on to win a seat on the Ohio Eighth District Court of Appeals where she can now potentially help fix more cases there for Jackson, Forbes and others.

Cleveland Municipal Court Presiding and Administrative Judge Ronald Adrine, who had appointed Keough to preside in the Coleman trial that ended May 9, 2009 with the illegal resisting arrest verdict and who directed Cleveland stenographer Laura Williams to falsify the trial transcript in an an effort to defame Coleman and try to hurt any appeal, handpicked McLaughlin Murray to take over the Coleman case in order to carry on the malfeasance for Jackson, Triozzi, Forbes and others that Keough had initiated. And after Keough won her seat on the appellate court, and before she left in Jan. to take it, she told the media that Forbes was a fool who had no merit for his cries of alleged racism. This was after she made his then client Jason Ruiz apologize to Cleveland police for an incident at a local bar in exchange for getting six months probation before judgment, with the subsequent dismissal of misdemeanor charges of resisting arrest and criminal trespass if its successful.

McLaughlin Murray, however, is the only sitting Cleveland judge up for either election or reelection that is not endorsed this year by the Cuyahoga County Democratic Party, meaning that Jackson's endorsement for the upcoming Nov. judicial election is crucial, and jailing Coleman is secondary to the ambitious and possibly unbalanced judge's efforts to retain the anti-Black and anti-female mayor's support. And Jackson is under fire because his administration and police released Sowell from police custody in 2008 around an attempted rape complaint of Gladys Wade, who got away, where six of the 11 Black women of Imperial Ave. were murdered thereafter.

To make matters worse, the mayor's niece, who has not be charged relative to the murders, was living with Sowell at the time of the alleged crimes. Also, city officials waited until two days before Jackson was reelected in 2009 to announce the discovery of the 11 murdered Black women, a suspect gesture some community activists say.

After securing the Coleman case in Jan. shortly after her appointment by Strickland that was pushed by Jackson and others, McLaughlin Murray then issued a bench warrant without a bond forfeiture hearing required to be scheduled by Jackson ally Cleveland Clerk of Court Earle Turner relative to the bond that Coleman put up when Keough had her arrested last July before she left the bench and where Coleman was hospitalized the day of the subsequent sentencing date by Keough, and Keough knew it because she called South Pointe Hospital to verify it, but said that Black people get sick all the time. But following public criticism McLaughlin Murray lifted the warrant, reinstating the personal bond, though stealing the bond money for the court. She then removed Coleman's paid post trial attorney in the case, Wayne L. Kerek, for conflict and illegalities and set an illegal sentencing for May 10 of this year on the resisting arrest issue, and she did so knowing that sole arresting deputy sheriff Pace did not accuse Coleman of it or even testify at trial.

Coleman was told that the McLaughlin Murray was willing to do anything to hold on to her seat and that because she is Black and the judge is White the Cleveland FBI would possibly overlook it. And though risking a potential FBI prosecution or one by Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Bill Mason for her blatant malfeasance and criminal Civil Rights infractions against the Black journalist and community activist, McLaughlin Murray is hoping that Jackson, Triozzi, and Democratic Judges McGinty, O'Donnell, Gallagher, Bozza and McDonnell, possibly Call and Post officials, and others can help her win in Nov. against Carr, who is Black and endorsed by State Sen. Nina Turner (D-25), several Cleveland City Councilmen such as Terrell Pruitt, Jeff Johnson and T.j. Dow, and others.

Harding appeared in the case before McLaughlin Murray on Coleman's behalf earlier this week and said that she has moved her to cancel Tuesday's illegal sentencing date on the resisting arrest issue that came out of the May 2009 Keough corruption trial so that she can review the trial transcripts and seek a hearing on a pending post trial motion to seek dismissal of the resisting arrest matter at issue due to obvious constitutional violations and other illegal infractions, not to mention Keough's malfeasance from the onset of the case.

"We will review the transcript with the hope of a hearing for dismissal before another judge other than Judge McLaughlin Murray," said Harding, who is Black. "Hopefully we can get either Judge Moore or Judge Tarver, both of whom are fair and do not do what the police want them to do."

Coleman said that a major culprit is Forbes and that his malfeasance is the more dangerous because he hides behind the Cleveland NAACP and the Call and Post in pretending to represent the interests of Black people when all he seemingly cares about is his own selfish self and corrupt White judges and other politicians that promote his law firm and put money in his pocket.

"I believe that Mr Forbes is no good and a sellout to the Black community, and he has driven the Call and Post into the ground by using it for his own personal gain where a lot of people no longer like him," said Coleman. "I hope the FBI prosecutes him and the rest of those thugs, and I hope all of them that have acted in an illegal manner and in an unethical fashion to hurt Blacks, women and others, rot in hell."
