Public Corruption in Chester County, PA

I believe an unlikely mix of alleged drug trafficking related politicos and alleged white nationalist related politicos united to elect the infamous “Bloc of Four” in the abysmal voter turnout election of 2005. During their four year term the drug business was good again and white nationalists used Coatesville as an example on white supremacist websites like “Stormfront”. Strong community organization and support from law enforcement, in particular Chester County District Attorney Joseph W. Carroll has begun to turn our community around. The Chester County drug trafficking that I believe centers on Coatesville continues and I believe we still have public officials in place that profit from the drug sales. But the people here are amazing and continue to work against the odds to make Coatesville a good place to live.

In 2007 the PA Commonwealth Court ordered landlord Amrit Lal to pay the City of Coatesville $110,000. It never happened.


Landlord Amrit Lal was supposed to pay $110,000 to the City of Coatesville instead Harry Walker and Andrew Lehr allegedly accepted his check for $5,000.
There was a long fought court battle between Coatesville landlord Amrit Lal and the City of Coatesville over unpaid fines for several of his Coatesville properties. After many years and a LOT of legal expenses paid by the City of Coatesville the City of Coatesville won:


Or did landlord Amrit Lal win?
But allegedly Mr. Lal and/or RST Properties never paid the fine or the legal expenses of the City of Coatesville:


Elwood Dixon asked the Coatesville City Council what happened to the $110,000 that was owed to the City of Coatesville. The Courthouse in the County of Chester could not give Mr. Dixon an answer.
Mr. Dixon got his answer last night.
City Councilperson Ed Simpson, “It wasn’t money from the County it was money from fines. Mr. Walker and our previous solicitor settled for $5,000.
Mr. Dixon, “What happened to the $5,000?”
Mr. Simpson, “It was deposited.”
Mr. Dixon, “It was deposted?”
Mr. Simpson, “I’m pretty sure that it was, I’ll check my files.”
Mr. Dixon, “Did the council give the OK?”
Mr. Simpson, “No they did not. Council was never informed about it.”
Mr. Dixon, “So there’s nothing that can be done?”
Mr. Simpson, “At this point, no.”
Mr. Joe Hamrick, “It was signed off...”
Mr. Simpson, “By Mr. Walker and Andrew Lehr.”
LISTEN HERE:



“The District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania has “noted that Lal is no ordinary pro se litigant, claiming to possess a law degree and a Ph.D., and that he has filed countless actions over an approximate 18-year period beginning in 1978.”

Notably, appellant has been sanctioned several times for bringing frivolous claims to court and abusing the legal process."

  2. That's not what happened, Commonwealth Court ruled in favor of the City of Coatesville. All the courts in between ruled in favor of the City of Coatesville. In other words the City of Coatesville won every case. After bringing his appeals to Commonwealth Court there was no higher court for Amrit Lal to appeal to.
    West Chester has had its problems with Amrit Lal and RST Properties:
    Borough Wins Big in Zoning Dispute
    [Posted March 2, 2006]

    "According to a memo from Housing Officer Michael Perrone, this is probably the largest award for a zoning violation in Pennsylvania history, but it is not the largest penalty ever levied against RST. On January 6, 2005, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported that one of RST's principle partner (described as "an inveterate litigant") was ordered to pay $26,000 to the Borough of Modena for violations over a thirteen month period. The reporter added that the partner has "a reputation for stretching his frequent disputes with municipal building inspectors into protracted courtroom dances" and quoted Chester County Court Judge Thomas Gavin's estimate "that he has presided over at least 100 real estate cases" involving the same individual in the last five years."

    Federal Warrant to review city finances
    http://coatesvilledems.blogspot.com/2009/05/federal-warrant-to-review-city-finances.html

    As far as the Federal Court option for Mr. Lal there is this:
    “The District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania has “noted that Lal is no ordinary pro se litigant, claiming to possess a law degree and a Ph.D., and that he has filed countless actions over an approximate 18-year period beginning in 1978.”
    Notably, appellant has been sanctioned several times for bringing frivolous claims to court and abusing the legal process."
    If there was any alleged abuse of the legal system it is on the hands of Andrew Lehr and Harry Walker for making an unbelievably sweet deal for Amrit Lal.
    Emmitt Belmonte went to his grave knowing that Lal got away with this with help from Andrew Lehr and Harry Walker. There are a lot of people who are extremely angry that Andrew Lehr and Harry Walker arranged for Lal to get away with paying $5,000 when the Commonwealth Court ordered him to pay $110.

  3. I wrote that Commonwealth Court ordered him to pay $110. It should be:

    The Commonwealth Court ordered Amrit Lal to pay the City of Coatesville $110,000. And maybe all court of Coatesville court cost also.

  4. This man is the slumlord of the century. He is suffering from dementia & should be psychologically analyzed to see if he should even be renting out houses.
