I have long contended that I stay in the law for one reason only, the amusement factor.  Case in point:

A fed-up bankruptcy judge Wednesday ordered a Hastings attorney and her
client to show cause why each shouldn’t be fined up to $10,000 for calling the
jurist a “Catholic Knight Witch Hunter” – as well as other names – in a court

In a pair of sternly worded orders, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Nancy Dreher said a
legal memorandum filed last month by attorney Rebekah Nett was filled with
“unsupported and outrageous allegations of bigotry, deceit, conspiracy and
scandalous statements.”

Among other things, the attorney’s memo called Dreher, another judge and a
couple of trustees “dirty Catholics” and said the courts were “composed of a
bunch of ignoramus, bigoted Catholic beasts that carry the sword of the church.”

Nett had signed the document, but it was written by Naomi Isaacson, a
Minneapolis woman who is president of Yehud-Monosson USA Inc., which owned gas
stations and convenience stores. It is a subsidiary of a religious group known
as the Dr. R.C. Samanta Roy Institute of Science and Technology Inc., or SIST,
in Shawano, Wis., and is embroiled in a bankruptcy dispute in Dreher’s court.

Dreher set a hearing for Jan. 4 and told Nett and Isaacson they’d have to
come up with good reasons why they shouldn’t be fined.

She also said she plans to order them to write public apologies to those
slurred in the November filing and will order Nett “to attend, at her own
expense, no less than 30 hours of ethics training within the next 12 months.”

Go here to read the hilarious rest.  Go here to read Judge Dreher’s order.  Paranoia and conspiracy theories tend to go rather badly with the drafting of legal pleadings.  Usually we see this in pro se filings, so it is unusual to see a member of the bar enter into these type of “colorful” accusations that boil down to the (insert devil figure) is out to get them.  I have always thought that such fervent belief that one section or group in humanity is to blame for all evil tends to be a way of simplifying the world and getting the believer off the hook.  It isn’t your fault that you are enmeshed in a catastrophe all of your own making, it is because of the Jews, the Catholics, the Masons, the Tri-lateralists, the Cattle Mutilators, the Elvis impersonators from Omicron 7, etc.  For some people retreating into La La Land is much easier than taking a long, hard look in the mirror.  So be it.  However, those people should really stay away from drafting legal pleadings that will be read by judges who have a limited tolerance for law-as -therapy.

  1. SIST is well known in Northeastern Wisconsin. There have been numerous shootings and other nefarious goings on for a long time associate with SIST. Out of the same area sprang the Posse Comitatus a white supremacist group of the 60’s to early 80’s (it still exsits today but in a much reduced form). There is no direct association, that I know of, between the groups but both are/were very secretive and located in the same area. It makes for interesting reading. Another fringe group that has an association with the Posse Comitatus is The House of Yahweh.

  2. Thanks for the tip Mike. That is a good write up. By the way gang, the jig is up. They are on to us based upon the latest filing in the case:

    “I want the Court to know, President Obama to know, Attorney General Eric Holder to know, United Nations to know, foreign media to know, and the world to know that Chapter 7 Trustee Nauni Manty keeps bolding lying because the judges and Court are controlled by her own race and Catholic religion. In the United States, under the Constitution, church and state are supposed to be separate. But, now like the Dark Ages, the Catholic Church obviously is in control of the Bankruptcy Court and the media.”
    The next time I have a ruling go against me in Bankruptcy Court, I will have to tell the Judge that Catholics control the Bankrupcty Court and therefore unless a Catholic lawyer was on the other side he really should reconsider his ruling. Or perhaps not.

  3. Sometimes the jokes just write themselves, don’t they?

    Actually, it’s very sad. Bad enough to suffer from paranoia, but to have it part of the public record, reprinted and recorded in media outlets …. St. Christina, pray for them.

  4. “But, now like the Dark Ages, the Catholic Church obviously is in control of the Bankruptcy Court and the media.”

    Sounds like somebody’s been watching too much Seventh-Day Adventist TV (except for the Bankruptcy Court part maybe, but there’s always next year).
