    KIA Auto Sport of Columbus, GA and SunTrust Bank stole my identity on a credit application( beautifying the application). When I found out that the 3 page credit application I filled out by hand was replaced with a 2 page computer generated application. They changed me from the co applicant to the applicant, my job title and my income change, which was printed out on October 7,2009 and placed it with the third page that contained my signature, in the co applicant section that I signed on the September 30,2009. I wrote both companies and advise them of the fraudulent credit application and demand that they take the vehicle back and demanded they remove the bank fraud off my credit history. They laughed. So, I file suit in court, KIA Auto Sport was in default, but unbeknown to me they had already brought Judge Frank Jordan, Jr. Let me remind everyone that this judge was not assign the case. The case was assign to Judge Smith, but Judge Jordan assign the case to himself, overlooked that KIA was in default, and rule in their favor. I filed a complaint with Chief Judge John Allen, who was also the chairperson of the Judicial Qualifications Commission, requesting that my case be assign to a judge according to the law and that a judge outside of the Chattahoochee Judicial Circuit to be assigned the case. Of course, Judge Allen assigned the case to Judge Jordan, even with court documents showing that Judge Jordan conspired with the defendants to have the case placed on his docket. I have appealed to the appellate courts, the case is now pending a Writ in the Supreme Court of Georgia (S13C1560).
