There are few things that make me smile more than crazy court filings, but a woman in Minnesota recently filed a brief with a bankruptcy court that could end up costing both her and her attorney $10,000. This thing contained some serious crazy.
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 filing.
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.” …In a letter to the judge dated Monday, Isaacson wrote that, “All the things that this Debtor has gone through are worse than the Inquisition, the Holocaust, and blood libels.” …
Nett and Isaacson called Dreher a “black-robed bigot.” They complained that Manty was “a Jesuitess” with a “track record of lies, deceit, treachery and connivery.”
“Since Debtor has been vocal in exposing their dirty deeds, these dirty Catholics have conspired together to hurt Debtor,” Nett and Isaacson wrote.
Isaacson is apparently a member of some weird Orthodox Jewish religious cult. And Nett has been fined before by judges for filing briefs like that.
