The bankruptcy petition was heard before District Judge Jones at the Durham County Court at 10.00am today March 18 1999. I immediately told Mr Jones that I objected to his hearing the Petition. At my last visit to the Court on an aborted taxation of costs hearing because of none compliance of rules by solicitor Alison Stott, Mr Jones said several times to me that I had "upset Mr Cuthbertson". The Mr Cuthbertson he referred to was District Judge Cuthbertson. By his having repeated that statement to me several times it was clear that he and Mr Cuthbertson had discussed me. At todays hearing I reminded him that he had made that statement to me several times when I was before him and in the circumstances that Mr Cuthbertson has, and remains subject of my various complaints, it could have been prejudicial to the outcome of todays hearing. Mr Jones dismissed my objection and within less than two minutes he allowed the Petition. I had told him that there was no question of bankrupy but only a question of fraud and corruption. I told him of the late Lord Denning's 1956 ruling which was that no judgement could stand if it had been obtained by fraud. He did not reply to that.
I asked him if he had examined two of my affidavits with evidence of fraud used against me dated 13th August and 4th November 1997, which I picked up and showed to him. His sharp reply to me was "I am not here to answer your questions Mr. Kellett". When I continued to ask if he had examined those affidavits he eventually replied "I probably have". He asked me if I could pay the £15,800 claimed by Carr and I told him that I could not, but even if I could I would not pay it for fraud and corruption. I told him that I would appeal his judgement. He replied, "you do of course realise that it will not be a circuit judge who will hear your appeal dont you?". I replied that I did, but that I was happy it would not be heard by a circuit judge on the North East Court Circuit. Mr Jones then snapped at me "goodbye Mr Kellett".
Mr Jones conducted the earlier taxation of costs hearing and although I had asked for it to be adjourned because of my illness he refused it. The taxation hearing was heard without my being present at it.
I have demanded certain judges at The Durham County Court, including Judge Jones, declare any membership of Freemasonry. These demands have not yet been met. I understand that my letter regarding this is being attended to by The Court Service. Once my opponent in the civil litigation had allowed counsel representing her to introduce into proceedings "my arguments with Freemasons" then the rules concerning possible conflict of interests must apply and judges too must and will be bound by these rules.
