Miller Jailed For Contempt Of Court For Failing To Appear

Miller jailed for contempt

Refuses to sign paper to cease litigation

February 4, 2011 - By JIM RUNKLE - jrunkle@lockhavencom


"I will not sign that ... Ever!"

With those words, local, self-styled real estate activist George Miller punctuated an order of the court yesterday, one that sends him to the Clinton County Correctional Facility for the next 30 days.

Miller, 84, of Lock Haven, a frequent plaintiff in legal actions involving his various properties over the past 11 years, appeared in Clinton County Court yesterday - this time as a defendant - after being found in contempt for failure to appear as ordered for a court hearing in January.

When Miller failed to show up Jan. 21 for a hearing on Poorman's request, Senior Judge John Leete from Potter County ordered the sheriff's office to bring the defendant into the courtroom. (The local judges have long since excused themselves from the Miller litigations.)

Yesterday afternoon, Judge Leete was called from his temporary duties in Snyder County to return to Clinton County.

Judge Leete then ordered Miller committed to prison for 30 days "or until such time as he executes an appropriate affidavit, which has been provided to him, indicating that he will cease and desist from further litigation against Stephen P. Poorman."

Miller can be immediately released - as soon as he executes the affidavit in question.

So it came to pass that Miller was spotted yesterday by sheriff's deputies walking in the area of Lock Haven University, and he was taken into custody 13 days after the contempt order was signed. Read the whole story......

Probably will wait until he does something harmful to himself - then they'll all come out of the woodwork and say they tried to help. What a tradegy.

Every person who does something wrong needs help. IT does not excuse them from justice.
