A Taylorville, Ill. man filed a lawsuit Nov. 2 against the Illinois State Bar Association seeking to get his "fatherly" rights back.
Plaintiff Aaron W. Temple, 41, said Wednesday that he hasn’t seen his oldest child for 12 years and his youngest child for three years.
Temple, 41, is divorced and has been on disability since 2004.
“I’m trying to get court reform for family court,” said Temple. “I want to do this civilly.”
“The court systems don’t have to be so complicated that regular people get neglected. People just get left out. I would do anything for one day in court.”
According to Temple’s lawsuit, “Humane Due Process could possibly prevent the war that has already been declared against the state bar association members of Christian County, IL, scheduled to begin Dec. 12 at 9 a.m.
“As physical war has proven to be the plaintiff’s only other alternative for humane treatment and real justice. And the only option left to protect his children from this experienced abuse.
“In return for a real and humane due process, the plaintiff would be free from beating his head against the state bar’s delusional walls of self-serving, self-evident obstruction tactics meant only to avoid their own accountability regardless. A self-evident pain and suffering refusal to process this case at all costs in order to protect inhumanity, not humanity."
"Together we could defibrillate the judicial branch of government, fight crime better, protect the people better and revive this great nation again, but with a new found freedom."
Temple claims the defendant’s common practice is to use inhumane “mechanics” in control over human lives, the lawsuit says.
The plaintiff claims that said defendants also took an oath under God to uphold the United States Constitution and to "pay the People their Bill of Rights."
The plaintiff claims it is "sane, safe and civil to the mental health of the People to pay taxes for, to expect, and to receive our due (owed the People) civil rights, our due civil immunities, and our due humane treatment," according to the lawsuit.
The plaintiff seeks $27,000 in compensatory damages and $17,000 in punitive damages.
He is representing himself.
The case is assigned to Madison County Chief Judge Ann Callis.
Madison County case number 12-L-1790.
