In the Circuit Court of Scott County Arkansas is a case that has all the elements for a book and a movie. The case of Potter v. Holmes has been continuing for years and seemingly no one from outside of the court room gave interest in the case until now.

Fred Potter

Fredrick R. “Fred” Potter, 89 years old, is a Marine Corps, Army, and Army National Guard Veteran who served in the Korean War and in Germany. He was a multi-millionaire who became the victim of abuse, judicial misconduct, and a senior citizen extortion ring in a family trust dispute.

From honorable service to his country, to becoming a multi-millionaire, to being stripped of his military records, his wife’s wedding rings, to being jailed as part of a scheme to gain control of all his and his wife’s assets, this is the Potter V. Holmes story.

Justice For Fred Potter

Fredrick R. Potter “Fred”, is the victim of abuse, judicial misconduct, and a senior citizen extortion ring.

A family trust dispute where the niece pulled a scam to commandeer the savings of her uncle and aunt for her greed and self-interest.  The attorney has collected over $500,000.00 while the judge puts the aging veteran in jail for failure to turn in items that do not exist to the court.

Fred and his wife, Betty,  was married for 39 years.

Before his wife passed away, Fred and his wife both created separate trusts, because Potter said they thought it would be better than a will, We set it up to where the one that was left living would have an income and it didn’t work out that way.”

The defendant, Cassaundra Holmes, does not have to prove that the items therein ordered to be return, does exist.  The burden of proof is placed upon the plaintiff that they do not exist.  How does one prove a negative?

Fred and his wife, Betty,  was married for 39 years.

Before his wife passed away, Fred and his wife both created separate trusts, because Potter said they thought it would be better than a will, “We set it up to where the one that was left living would have an income and it didn’t work out that way.”

Because of the judicial misconduct the case has become a complex and difficult situation with no easy solutions.  The quagmire is the direct result of ineffective legal misrepresentation, judicial misconduct and an attorney for the defendant along with the defendants therein a party thereof who displays a total disdain and disregard to the rule of law and moral conscientious.

This case has many elements that rises to different levels of concern and is worthy of further investigation and attention by state and federal officials.

Justice For Fred Potter, Judge David H. McCormick, Jack Skinner, Cassuandra Holmes

The principles of the ring are a tyrant Judge David H. McCormick, a scandalous attorney, Jack Skinner, and a niece, Cassaundra Holmes who apparently has no moral conscientious and dignity.

The conduct and judicial over-step along with the disregard of judicial temperament and the signing of unreasonable court orders by Judge David H. McCormick it is apparent that the court is being use for the purpose of monetary extortion from a senior citizen.
