Now that the famous Irish comedian Patrick Cullinane is no longer with us, his place in the pantheon of Freeman on the Land loonies seems to have been taken by Edward W. Ellis, struck-off solicitor and self-styled “Equity Lawyer”.
We first met Mr Ellis at the trial of Neelu Berry and Sabine McNeill back in July 2016; he entered the courtroom before things had really got under way, and shouted, “THIS IS EDWARD W. ELLIS, EQUITY LAWYER, SPEAKING FOR THE RECORD”. (Sorry for the all-caps, but he really was that loud.)
At that time, his goal was to delay the trial on the basis that he and Neelu had launched some sort of proceedings at the Royal Courts of Justice, to which the Crown Court would have to defer. The judge, however, stated that he was “not minded” to go along with Mr Ellis’ hare-brained scheme, and the trial carried on despite his brilliant legal gambit.
However, it seems that that attempt to stall the trial led to a charge of contempt of court, because Mr Ellis was in fact under a general civil restraint order at the time which prohibited him from bringing certain cases to court, and which he’d violated by his actions vis à vis Sabine and Neelu.
Compounding matters, which as you know is the Troofer Way, the day after the July 2016 trial ended, Neelu was in court yet again, this time with Hoaxtead mobster John Praterson as well as Mr Ellis. If you have time, you really should have a look at that link: Neelu performed her famous Judge Kidnapping Trick, Praterson told a High Court judge not to speak to him in that tone of voice, and Mr Ellis’, er, clients helpfully incriminated him for being in violation of that civil restraint order, and hence in contempt of court. Good times.
And that brings us to Mr Ellis’ most recent shenanigans. In addition to his cameo appearance at Neelu’s house at six a.m. during the “kidnapping” of her son’s car for unpaid fines, we know that he has been (cough) representing both John Praterson and Matt Taylor in their various endeavours, with approximately the same degree of success which he achieved in representing Neelu and Praterson last year.
Now it seems that Mr Ellis has been not just judicially reprimanded, but physically ejected from the Royal Courts of Justice:According to Neelu,
Our lawyer was physically man-handled and lifted from his seat by his elbows and shoulders in Court 37 by 5 security guard and 5 Queen Bench Division court managers. This all started when one of the Masters of the QBD was accused of money laundering.
Two things strike us here: had we known that Mr Ellis was about to be tossed out of court on his ear, we’d have sold advance tickets. Next time, we’d appreciate a bit of advance notice.
And we wonder who accused one of the Masters of the QBD of money laundering? [Not Mr Ellis, shurely?—Ed.]
Here’s Professional Court Attender John Banks’ version of events: In comparison with Neelu’s “5 security guard and 5 Queen Bench Division court managers”, John claims that it only took “two big security guards” to remove Mr Ellis from the court. Well, they were very big security guards.
However, John offers a ray of hope to those of us who are fascinated by the court adventures of Mr Ellis and his ilk: “We will be going back again soon”. Ooh, really?
Wahey! Here we go, folks: looks today’s the day we get our big chance of seeing Mr Ellis getting the old heave-ho from the RCJ:
We need support & witnesses. Thursday 30/11/17, 2 pm, Queens Bench Court 37 Royal Court’s (sic) of injustice.
We are returning to the Royal Court’s (sic) of injustice. We need support, witnesses at Queens Bench Court, 37 @ 2pm. Edward, equity lawyer needs to be in court but, corrupt judges, staff are doing everything they can to stop Edward representing cases that set a president (sic) against the justice system. In doing so, they are deliberately, perverting the course of Justice through injustices. We will not stand for our right (sic) and freedoms being trampalled (sic) over time after time. So, be there, br (sic) witness to history making!
We don’t know about “history making”, but it sounds as though it’ll be an exciting afternoon, well worth a look-see. So as the youngsters say, “Be there or be square”.
