One thought on “Judy Clare Clarke

  1. Hi judy, I am concerned that you did not represent your client. If you did, you would have included a lot more evidence and asked a lot more questions- including of the pork.txt document and my phone calls before during and after boston went boom. Recorded and documented- including the call the morning of the bomb, and the fax a few minutes before the bomb went off. Read all about seven plus terrorism accidents ALL compliments of the POLICE aka the terrorist cell on adeleyott@facebook. All documented Judy, so whether it is five years or ten years, the true about the terrorist cell will be made known.
