The Peoples Legal Front is happy to provide access to the motions, pleadings, briefs, complaints, etc. that we have produced as pro se litigants in the court system of the State of Missouri. We do not take responsibility for these forms conforming to the requirements of the courts and ask that anyone who may use the forms to improve on them. They certainly should not be construed as lawful. These documents have been submitted to the courts of the State of Missouri, and most have failed in their effort. I should also point out that it is better to have tried and failed than to never to have tried at all.

Interactive Legal Forms provided by the People's Legal Front. These JavaScript based forms should help in getting some of the required elements to your pleading, I hope all. The right frame will provide links to the law, Rules of Court, Statutes, Codes, Regulations, Jury Instructions, Dictionary, and a spell checker.

Here is a search engine that you can use. All Interactive forms will have a url name with the word form in it. This only searches the plf site.

breifreporter Here is a link to the best of what is being filed as briefs by attorneys right now.

We are constantly adding to this page for it is neither a complete listing of all of our legal writings, nor represents that we have finished legal writing. Each of us continue to fight in the Courts of our State and Country.

As I continue to do more legal work I come upon forms that I have used that have been preparred by others. I am loath to take credit for others work, but know that you also must want access to these forms.

The following are some of the motions I have written and filed. As I have already stated these have not worked as I have wanted them to. I have tried to arrange these motions as to the action they were filed in. Some are miscellaneous motions and are at the head of the list. I have been writing pleadings since 1992 and most of my early work was handwritten; therefore, I will be continuing to add to this list. I have and continue to get better with experience. I must further state that many motions such as the Probono request have worked. Motions to Dismiss rarely work from the pro se position; however, Motions for Continuance when timely filed usually always work. Motions for Change of Judge within 10 days of arraignment in a criminal case are nearly always granted. Change of venue in criminal cases timely filed will be granted. I once received a Stay of Execution of Sentence by the Appellate Court from the State of Missouri because of a motion that was handwritten and filed. Every Pro Se litigant must know that the Courts are not receptive to non attorney pleadings, but that does not mean that the Courts ignore what is written. The Superior Courts are created to protect the constitutional freedoms of all, and although we may feel that we are getting the shaft the Superior Courts try to uphold their responsibility. We all will disagree with the decisions that are made, and for the most part our opinions are based on our subjective interpretations of our lives. The Superior Courts constantly hear guilty defendants complain that they are innocent and in murder cases the Superior Courts are required to hear these complaints, thus when an aggrieved individual is before them they may be biased in their thinking. This is an extreme burden placed on the victim of a kangaroo court, and it is the problem that we all face.

These are some of the pleadings I have worked on. Most are not ready to use as they now stand, but you might be able to amend any of them to fit your need if they are close. I would especially ask that any of you out there defending yourself take a look at the Application for pro bono attorney. I think that we all could benefit with from a free attorney. Good Luck Lee

37th Judicial Circuit for the State of Missouri,
I need to give an explanation to this case or it will confuse you. In the case numberCv398-699CC I field a motion for trial de novo review of the Director of Revenue's illegal revocation of my driving license beyond the statutes of the State of Missouri. The Trial Court of Ronald J. or R. Jack Garrett refused to hear the petition and threw me out for lack of subject matter jurisdiction (fancy words that means a court is not required to give due process). I appealed to the Missouri State Supreme Court on Constitutional grounds, Resulting in MO. Supreme Court case# 81426. The Missouri Supreme Court Transferred the Case to the Southern District Court of Appeals, Case #23071-1, where on the 10th day of January 2000 Oral Argument was heard. The Court of Appeals issued an opinion on the 15th day of February 2000 dismissing the appeal on the grounds that the trial judge had failed to enter a judgment. The mandate of the court of appeals was that trial judge should enter a judgment. The Trial Judge did enter a Judgment on the 18th day of February 2000, which is less than a judgment in my opinion. I filed Motion to reconsider on the 25th day of February 2000. The Judge instead of granting Motion to reconsider decided to request prospective orders from the DOR and me. Before his deadline was up and before I submitted my prospective Order the less than honorable judge signed the DOR's Order. This Order is completely different and based on different sets of fact and points of law than had been addressed in court. I appeal Southern District #23604-1, Hey Judge Crow be getting some more of that good writing. Maybe even a little sunshine up the butt. Now good luck, I am sure there is motions that you can use for yourself as templates in this case. Appeals process, Record on Appeal, Legal File, Transcript, Motion to Reconsider, and I especially like the Bill of Cost filed in this case all are good work. Please help yourself. Lee

31st Judicial Circuit Court of the State of Missouri, Greene County A case arising out of Chapter 610 of the Revised Statutes of the State of Missouri, Sunshine Law to open Public Documents; specifically the Standard Operating Guidelines of the Springfield Police Department.

As you may already know the Springfield Police Department is scrambling and now that the cat is out of the bag they are stalling for time. Let's face it. It takes way to long to download the SOG's, Standard Operating Guidelines, from the cities site. I think it is planned that way. I have a plan, but the Judge, J. Miles Sweeney, and the defendant, Brenda Cirtin, have other plans. The problem is I already have the complete document and the illegal protective order to go with it. I have the document in HTML with search engine, but I can not publish. At least not yet. The city has admitted to criminal conduct, in my opinion. My opinion does count now. Have patience for the end is very near, no matter what the crooked cops think.

My order concerning the SOG's This should be informative. It should also show what to expect from the courts! Justice is not blind and is not fair. If I or you would circumvent the law as the City of Springfield has you may rest assured that we will be prosecuted put in jail and fed cumadin until we bled to death. If the City of Springfield and their Police wish to maintain a secret police status the public is not entitled to know unless the Police tell you. All involved in illegal activity is guilty of the crime. I will give you the doucment that you need in court. I will not fail!

Letter from Judge Sweeney stating the proposed redactions are not called for. City agrees, I win more. ACLU take notice.
