African American Inventor Claims Philadelphia Home Illegally Confiscated

African American Inventor and founder of ABFY Sellers Group, Dorothy M. Hartman alleges home is being illegally confiscated. The Inventor who claims to have invented the modern day Internet alleges that a fraudulent mortgage foreclosure carried out by white collar criminals with ties to the local government and courts in Philadelphia are illegally confiscating her home.

After filing lawsuits against a realtor and high powered government officials in Philadelphia she was targeted for slandering, harassment, and bullying. Following that her home and automobiles were vandalized. She sued a Realtor, Secretary of the Philadelphia Civil Service Commission and an attorney, and Captain of a Police District for Violation of Fair Trade Practices and Racial Discrimination in their capacity as members of a condominium association board. After purchasing a condominium in highly competitive real estate area in Philadelphia – the inventor alleges that she was subjected to racial epithets and verbal abuses and fraud in her purchase. After being unable to resolve issues and the ongoing neglect and refusal of the board to maintain and upkeep her apartment unit – she filed suit. These people were the board of directors for the condominium association where she purchased a condominium. She says that the board members were dismissed from any serious charges by lenient judge(s) ruling on nepotism and prejudice – one of whom addressed the Secretary and apologized to him his having to come to court. The jury was instructed to drop the more serious charges of fraud and discrimination but it ruled unanimously to award her the verdict in her favor on a minor charge of Negligence. Although she sold the condominium and purchased her present home  – she has been continously harassed, her home and automobiles vandalized with the authorities failing to act against those involved. The bullying and harassment have been extreme because after admitting in a deposition in 1997 that she had been involved in the invention of the modern day Internet – she has been especially ridiculed and her reputation slandered in an effort to discredit her. The Inventor alleges that her claims are valid because her ideas were used by the National Science Foundation in 1990 to transform the Internet that has only existed since the early 1990s.

After city reporting agencies colluded with banks presenting false and scandalous information on her loan application documents to deny her refinancing on her home loan in 2008, she approached several law administrative agencies including HUD, Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission, U.S. Justice Dept. Governor Corbett’s Office on Consumer Affairs. Nothing was done. It appears another reason for her being denied justice or even law enforcement action against what are high level criminals with ties to city government and the courts was the fact that she had participated in a Commission Report from the Pennsylvania Supreme Court Committee on Racial and Gender Bias in its Justice System. She was asked to participate by a black, female judge to provide her experiences within the court which ran from interruption of due process to the judge ignoring a subpoena of  a witness to come to court and she provided that information for the 1999 report.

Pennsylvania has been the subject of several justice scandals including Mumia Abu-Jamal whom some consider a political prisoner, the bombing of MOVE a commune of African-Americans in Philadelphia the only known bombing of its own citizens within a city, Kathleen Cane who released racist and pornographic emails circulated among prosecutors and Supreme Court Justices, and until recently after a few thousand were released known as the state with the highest number of Black incarcerations. Public education has not had an approved budget for two years in a row and some students, Blacks reportedly have no schools that they can attend. Although the Mortgage Foreclosure was filed in State Court, the Court of Common Pleas in Philadelphia – the Inventor asked that the matter be heard in Federal Court because of the violations to her civil and constitutional rights. She filed the case in Federal Court because she alleges that it was all a “set up” to retaliate against her based on complaints she filed with Federal Agencies against both the Bank of America and the City of Philadelphia which she alleges set out to ruin her. The case has a long and documented history which is on file with the Comptroller of the Currency – yet the federal judge, Paul S. Diamond chose to ignore the Inventor’s complaints about the violation of her civil and constitutional rights and remanded the case back to State Court where the foreclosure was then forced through.” The Bank of America sold off the loan to the Bank of New York Mellon which instituted a so called In Rem action which is really a cloaked In Personam action”, alleges Hartman. “I rue the day that I ever shared money-making inventive ideas with people who uphold tenets of “Institutionalized Racism”.

The Inventor filed in federal court because of the violations to both her civil and constitutional rights. The federal judge on the case failed to take into account evidence that the Inventor’s civil and constitutional rights are and have been violated. The Inventor alleges that he improperly remanded the case back to State Court and that she has been placed in a position of having to fight  portions of the same case in both courts while the federal judge has dismissed all charges against the perpetrators. The inventor has appealed the case in both courts, as it is in State Court that the bank has been allowed to seize her property because evidence is being either ignored and/or withheld in both courts that the case belongs under the jurisdiction of the federal court. The inventor has appealed in both courts and she avows that she deserves her day in court.

The Federal Judge on the case Paul S. Diamond is trending in the news because of his rulings on other cases:, and
