Wilkinson addressed a very narrow but totally debilitating issue in parole law. The question was whether a person had to exhaust all of their state remedies, including their judicial state remedies, before they could challenge a parole decision in federal court. In effect, there was a very formidable chain of authority which held that a parole decision was deserving to be on the same level as a state court judicial decision. So just as you had to exhaust all of your state judicial remedies – which meant going to the state supreme court – you had to do the same thing before you could challenge in federal court a parole decision. The net effect of this authority was to place a federal challenge to a parole decision on such a high plateau, it was basically unavailable, and parole decisions were in practice immune from federal law, because it was nearly impossible to exhaust these state remedies. And, now these same skills, acumen, and guts are what make Attorney Sirak, a force of contention for the Big Banks Foreclosing on millions of homes in the United States.
Standing up to Big Banks is a cake walk compared to standing up to formidable opponents Attorney Sirak once faced when fighting for the civil rights of 3500 prisoners, and what it took to bring the Wilkinson v Dotson case to a successful conclusion. Fighting Foreclosure during these current political and economic climates is not for the novice, nor the weak of heart. It takes Passion, Courage, Commitment, Experience AND a Seasoned Lawyer with expertise in Securitization of Mortgages.
