Formal complaint prompts federal investigation into South Bend wiretapping case
WSBT-TV Report
POSTED: 04:58 PM EDT Apr 15, 2015 UPDATED: 08:17 PM EDT Apr 15, 2015


BREAKING: Criminal investigation begins in South Bend

SOUTH BEND -
There is now a criminal investigation connected to the wiretapping scandal that rocked the South Bend Police Department in 2012 -- and prompted a federal investigation.


According to court documents we're looking over right now, Metro Homicide Commander Tim Corbett recently filed a formal complaint with the South Bend Police Department.

Corbett claims the department violated Indiana's Wiretap Act by illegally recording phone conversations involving Corbett.

South Bend Police handed the investigation over to Indiana State Police and now a special prosecutor has been assigned to the case.

WSBT 22 is digging deeper into this case and we're working on new information for you right now that we will have for you on this tonight on WSBT 22 News at 11.

Federal and "STATE" wiretap violations and laws broken. I bet this guy doesn't play politics with it like the feds. I predict charges. Maybe if Dieter et al and the rest of the council had stopped beating a dead horse with subpoena after subpoena for their political strategies, this would have ended once the suits were settled by the city. But they kept pushing it wasting tens of thousands of dollars. Now they have pushed their little buddy Darryl and maybe Karen right into a felony conviction (s) quite possibly. The federal judge said 7 of 8 illegally recorded! And the other may be illegal under some other "state or federal" law. This won't be hard for the prosecutor to review. All the work is done and ruled on. Just my humble opinion of course.

Mr. Cotter:

Sadly I must report to you that after I met with City Clerk Candidate Ms. Kareemah Fowler on Tuesday, April 21, 2015, St. Joseph County Metro Homicide Commander Tim Corbett, while on duty, met with her in an effort to tamper with the election. Obviously, he is not paid to influence elections. He is also alleged to be behind a smear campaign to influence the election by using a private citizen Mr. Lucas Burkett to coerce candidates or threaten candidate. I am accordingly filing a complaint with Special Prosecutor Stanley Levco and federal and state officials and alerting the media.

I am personally sick to death of this clown! Why doesn't he go and get a job and quit making up crap and causing all kinds of trouble. This is such a waste of time and I do not believe a word Sims says.

OK, Super Mario! Let's deal in cold, hard facts ...

Kareemah Fowler:

1) Was Defendant in a St. Joseph County Civil Suit in 2001 (Case No. 71D01-0101-SC-001009). Judgment awarded to Plaintiff Capital One Bank.
2) Filed Chapter 7 Bankruptcy in 2001 (Case No. 3:01-BK-31529). Above judgment was discharged.
3) Was Defendant in a St. Joseph County Civil Suit in 2009 (Case No. 71D01-0901-SC-000270). Plaintiff sued for immediate possession and was awarded $853.42 judgment. Fowler's St. Joseph County Assessor wages were garnished for the full amount.
4) Was sued by the City of South Bend in 2011 (Case No. 71D01-1112-SC-010550).
5) Lived with - or still resides with - Convicted Felon Franco Biffle.

Want more?

P.S. I am NOT a Dieter supporter. Actually, I can't even vote since I live outside the city limits. But since you have chosen to insert yourself into this election by playing the race card, I felt compelled to publicly document the above information. Hopefully, Erin Blasko will find it newsworthy.

APPEAL FROM THE ELKHART CIRCUIT COURT
The Honorable Terry Shewmaker, Judge
Cause No. 20C01-0312-PL-649



May 25, 2005

OPINION - FOR PUBLICATION

BAKER, Judge

This court has become intimately acquainted with the "plight" of Mario L. Sims since he was incarcerated in 1994 for raping his wife while threatening her with a loaded gun and a heroin-filled syringe. Since that time, he has inundated our judicial system with lawsuits against, among others, various public officials, his ex-wife, and her current husband. His abuse of the judicial system continues with this case.
Appellant-plaintiff Sims appeals from the trial court's dismissal of his complaint against the appellees-defendants wherein he alleged that they had retaliated against him for filing a previous cause of action against them. Specifically, Sims contends that the trial court erred in concluding that he failed to exhaust his administrative remedies in his 42 U.S.C. § 1983 claim against the Department of Correction (DOC). Finding Sims to be in direct contempt of court in light of his noncompliance with our previous order requiring him to satisfy certain conditions before filing this lawsuit, we affirm the trial court's dismissal of his complaint with prejudice and order Sims to take further action as described herein.
FACTS
Although the record in this case does not reveal the myriad lawsuits that Sims has filed since being incarcerated in 1994, a quick Westlaw search reveals that as of 2003, Sims had been involved in at least 47 state court appeals, nearly all of whichcivil and criminalhad been unsuccessful and were directly or indirectly related to his arrest, prosecution, conviction, or confinement for burglary, rape, and criminal deviate conduct. Sims v. Scopelitis, 797 N.E.2d 348, 349 n.2 (Ind. Ct. App. 2003), trans. denied. Indeed, among other public officials, he has sued the Governor of Indiana, a judge on the Court of Appeals, a trial court judge, the clerk of courts, and an employee of the Domestic Relations Counseling Bureau.
In the months prior to the filing of the complaint at issue in this case, Sims sued the DOC, the Lieutenant Governor, the Commissioner of the DOC, and the Superintendent and several employees of the Westville Correctional Facility (Westville) sometime in late 2002 or early 2003. Apparently, that complaintnot included in the record hereinalleged "loss of life" and a deprivation of his state constitutional rights because of the defendants' acts. Appellee's Br. p. 2. The trial court dismissed that complaint in May 2003.
Sims filed the complaint at issue here on May 19, 2003, against the same defendants. In his complaint, he alleges that the defendants engaged in various acts of retaliation against him for filing the 2002 complaint. Specifically, Sims alleges that he has been diagnosed with a hernia and ordered not to carry more than ten pounds. He alleges that the Governorat that time, Joseph Kernanthe Commissioner of the DOC, and the Superintendent of Westville all have access to his medical records and know he will injure his hernia if he carries more than ten pounds.
In February 2003, Sims was performing his job in the law library when a lieutenant ordered him to a particular room, telling him to bring his possessions. According to Sims, the box containing his personal possessions weighed approximately fifty pounds. When Sims arrived in the room, the lieutenant asked Sims where he worked, had Sims open the box three inches, and then sent Sims back to the library. Sims contends that carrying the box caused him pain and suffering, and he also claims that by asking Sims where he worked, the lieutenant intended to make Sims afraid to help other offenders in the law library and to chill his right to file lawsuits.
Sims also alleges that the Westville mailroom supervisor prohibited him from receiving mail from his wife. According to Sims, this action was taken in retaliation for filing the previous complaint, for filing grievances, and for exercising his right to marry. He contends that the mail prohibition was racially motivated because he is African-American and his wife is Latina, and he avers that the prohibition was "in furtherance of and in conspiracy with the defendants." Appellant's Br. p. 6.
As a result of these alleged acts of retaliation, Sims filed the current complaint on May 19, 2003, alleging, among other things, that the defendants deprived Sims of the privileges and immunities guaranteed to Sims as a citizen of Indiana by retaliating against him for exercising his state and federal constitutional rights. The trial court dismissed the case against one defendant with prejudice, and Sims dismissed the remaining defendants except for the DOC. On March 3, 2004, the DOC filed a motion for judgment on the pleadings, and on September 9, 2004, the trial court granted the motion and dismissed Sims's complaint with prejudice. Sims now appeals.
DISCUSSION AND DECISION
In Sims v. Scopelitis, this court considered Sims's history and concluded as follows:
Sims seems to have a penchant for litigation, regardless of the merits of his claims or prior adjudications of competent courts. Such an abuse of the judicial system will not stand. Undoubtedly, Sims will refuse to heed this warning and will continue filing meritless complaints; therefore, we hereby admonish him.
797 N.E.2d at 352. We then put in place the following order:
With respect to any future lawsuits that arise directly or indirectly from any alleged conspiracy by public officials related to Sims' arrest, prosecution, conviction or confinement for burglary, rape, and criminal deviate conduct, we impose the following conditions upon Sims:
(1) Prior to filing any such lawsuit, Sims shall submit to the trial court a copy of the complaint he wishes to file;
(2) Sims shall also file a copy of all of the relevant documents pertaining to the ultimate disposition of each and every previous case instituted by Sims against the same defendant or emanating, directly or indirectly, from any alleged conspiracy by public officials. This includes, but is not limited to, the complaint, any motions to dismiss or motions for summary judgment filed by the defendants in those actions, the trial court order announcing disposition of the case, and any opinions issued in the case by any appellate court;
(3) Sims shall file a legal brief, complete with competent legal argument and citation to authority, explaining to the court why the new action is not subject to dismissal by application of the doctrines of res judicata, collateral estoppel, or law of the case. If, after reviewing these materials, the trial court determines that the proposed lawsuit is frivolous, malicious, fails to state a claim upon which relief may be granted, or is otherwise utterly without merit, the court shall dismiss with prejudice the proposed complaint;
(4) Sims is required to verify his new complaint pursuant to Indiana Trial Rule 11(B); and
(5) Sims is specifically instructed to attach to such complaint a separate copy of this final section of the instant opinion.
Id. (emphasis in original).
In this case, Sims has filed a complaint that admittedly arose directly from an alleged "conspiracy," Appellant's Br. p. 6, by public officials related to his confinement for burglary, rape, and criminal deviate conduct. As such, he was required to follow the Scopelitis order. He did not. We find him in direct contempt of court for his failure to follow the Scopelitis order. Accordingly, we affirm the trial court's dismissal of his complaint with prejudice. We also direct Sims to show cause by verified affidavit why he should not be punished for contempt of court, and order him to file the affidavit with the Clerk of the Court no later than thirty days from this opinion's handdown date. If Sims does not comply with this order or is unable to show cause why he should not be punished, we will proceed to impose a penalty upon him for his violation of the Scopelitis order.
The judgment of the trial court is affirmed.
KIRSCH, C.J., and VAIDIK, J., concur.
