Cobb County Crackpot Accused Of Hijacking Homes With Bogus Paperwork Faces New Charges For Alleged Intimidation Attempts On Judges Overseeing Her Cases, Others

In Cobb County, Georgia, WSB-TV Channel 2 reports:

  • A woman arrested after a series of Channel 2 investigations is now in even more trouble, accused of trying to intimidate the judges overseeing the cases against her.

    A Cobb County grand jury indicted Susan Weidman Thursday on a new charge of racketeering, and deputies arrested her as she tried to enter the courthouse. Weidman is now in jail with no bond.

    Weidman was already facing racketeering charges in Cobb and DeKalb counties for filing bogus documents and trying to take over foreclosed homes.

    She spent months in jail the last time she was arrested. Since she's been out on bond, prosecutors say she's filed dozens of new court documents including a lawsuit against two counties, two judges, and a demand for the state of Georgia to pay her $65 million.
  • "The reason this new indictment came up is because of the filings she had that were endeavoring to intimidate and impede the justice system," [Cobb County Deputy Chief Assistant District Attorney John] Melvin said.

    For example, a federal lawsuit Weidman filed in June against the state of Georgia, Cobb and DeKalb counties, and Judges Tangela Barrie and Dorothy Robinson demanding $300 million for false arrest and malicious prosecution.

    Weidman also sent a bogus claim to the state's risk management office, demanding $65 million in federal judgments that don't exist.
