Summary JudgmentPoetry by Luke Easter Salem-News.com
Innocent till proven guilty but it's not so,
(CLEVELAND) - Rule 56. Summary Judgment
(a) Motion for Summary Judgment or Partial Summary Judgment. A party may move for summary judgment, identifying each claim or defense — or the part of each claim or defense — on which summary judgment is sought. The court shall grant summary judgment if the movant shows that there is no genuine dispute as to any material fact and the movant is entitled to judgment as a matter of law. The court should state on the record the reasons for granting or denying the motion. (Actually, read the entire chapter of Rule 56)
Received a summons, at settlement you plead your case,
Or, maybe the debt is yours yet nowhere near that amount,
Check case files & see how many lawsuits have been filed,
State and Federal guidelines are for your protection alone,
Judges rarely read let alone see briefs as staff attorney’s do,
Robo-Signing documents are no longer allowed in support,
So is the world of debt collections & their, Shyster At law,
Ok, let's double check, did you cite guidelines of FDCPA?
An appeal brief must be filed within 28 days do not delay,
Every pertinent, “fact of law” the Plaintiff must respond,
Search, Midland Funding – Cease & Desist in Maryland,
In criminal court, innocent till proven guilty but it's not so,
Because most cases 90% are won by default as defendants do,
Is this not, “The United States” and do not their laws protect all?

Luke Easter is a poet who writes about things that are very close to the heart of Salem-News.com. Another former U.S. Marine, Luke heals the world with an approach that reaches people on a different level, one known for centuries, yet too often forgotten in the one we live in.
We live in a world of social & economic injustice. The main reason for founding America in the first place was to relieve the oppression of the King of England. Patrick Henry said it best, “give me liberty or give me death.” And yet, all too often death seems to be the only way out. Why is there such a high suicide rate especially among teens, in the land of the free & the home of the brave? What makes headlines? Good news? Ha! More depressing stories than anything else. I feel poetry takes an edge off the hurt of bad news while still delivering it but in a, “glitzy” sort of way. Giving a different perspective. Kind of like slap in the face as opposed to a knife in the back. At least with the slap you’ll live to see another day and you will know whom it’s from. I wasn’t here for the beginning of the world but at 59, I just might be here for the end.
Even though it’s still a knife, rhyme poetry helps to dull the blade. And that’s my job. You can write to Luke Easter at: firstname.lastname@example.org
