Normal Wisdom wrote: [Mr Ebert] certainly has considerable experience in legal process and documentation having spent 20 years pursuing his own claims of fraud, illegal eviction, illegal bankruptcy, forged documentation and deception and collusion of almost everyone involved including his former business partner, various banks, receivers, liquidators, estate agents, members of the legal profession, the judiciary and members of government.
Unfortunately for his own credibility he has yet to prove a single allegation despite launching numerous criminal actions and between 60 and 120 civil cases. In fact his actions have become part of case law on the subject of vexatious litigation and he is in what I assume to be a fairly rare position of being the subject of both Civil and Criminal Proceedings Orders which prevent him, in perpetuity, launching any further civil or criminal actions without the specific permission of the High Court.
This restriction and his singular lack of success in court has not prevented him from writing a book on the subject and offering advice to anyone that asks (and possibly pays?) for it. When assessing whether the Civil Proceedings Order should be granted one judge commented on Mr Ebert's "obsessive and deluded state of mind". Perhaps this is what appeals to his clients.
The judgement on the Civil Proceedings Order can be read here (in two parts with a link to the second part at the foot of the first part)

Even more instructive and definitely entertaining is the transcript of an appeal against conviction and hearing for sentencing involving Mr Ebert after he was subsequently convicted of criminal damage and harassment for repeatedly spray painting his name on his former property. The judge shows amazing patience especially in the sentencing hearing. I just wish I could have been there (the headings and comments in the following link have apparently been added by Mr Ebert or one of his supporters but the transcripts seem to be accurate)http://mrebert.files.wordpress.com/2012 ... etails.pdf
Of course we wouldn’t be anywhere without a video showing this legal genius at work, presented is a series of videos on Vimeo (rather than YouTube) which show Mr Ebert staging a protest outside the site of his former home and the police response to it. It’s in three parts so here’s Part One, Part Two, and Part Three.
Admittedly these videos are three years old. Usually I wouldn’t post them, but it’s among the only video’s I’ve found of Mr Ebert. So why post a thread on him now, well Mr Ebert is trying to become the next Tom Crawford. Across the GOOFieverse a call for action has gone out in the past couple of days because Mr Ebert is being evicted. We haven’t been given any more details than this and don’t know if it’s for non-payment of a mortgage (highly unlikely Mr Ebert is an undischarged bankrupt), rental arrears or simply because the landlord wants him out. However the fact that one of their own, in fact someone they consider a major player is having such plight with the bailiffs is fueling all manner of conspiracy theories. The GOOFs and Guy Taylor are trying to spin this into a victory for their argument by claiming that the system is targeting Ebert because he provides so much good advice for them. The reality is probably that the ‘system’ has very little to do with this eviction and it is little more than a run of the mill dispute between landlord and tenant.
