There are some debtors who go to such lengths to escape their obligations that you have to wonder what kind of person lent them money in the first place.
Today we’ve got an expedited motion to vacate. It’s filed by an attorney, representing the debtor, who seems mad — both mad as in “angry,” and “mad” as in “bats**t crazy pants.” She’s mad at the lender, and she’s mad at the judge.
But mostly, she’s mad at Catholics. Dirty, dirty Catholics….
The motion was filed on behalf of debtor Yehud-Monosson USA, Inc., by attorney Rebekah Nett. I want to emphasize that this motion was filed by an attorney because you will be tempted to believe this was filed pro se.
But it’s not. Nett went to a real law school and everything. A fact that is about to make the University of Minnesota School of Law very, very sad.
After some lucid preamble, we get to the heart of Nett’s memorandum in support of her motion to vacate. Let’s join the festivities in paragraph five:
In fact, Chapter 7 Trustee Nauni Manty had actually scheduled the hearing with Nancy Dreher, the Catholic judge, for 1:00 p.m. but sent notice to the Debtor that the hearing was set for 1:30 p.m. Debtor seriously questions Chapter 7 Trustee Nauni Manty’s motive in informing Debtor of the wrong time for the hearing. Was it to the make the job of the black-robed bigot that much easier? So, rather than forcing the Court to hear the case on its merits, the matter can just go by default? Debtor is suspicious of the Chapter 7 Trustee Nauni Manty’s motive given her track record of lies, deceit, treachery, and connivery, particularly, since the Chapter 7 Trustee Nauni Manty, the U.S. Trustee Colin Kreuziger, and Nancy Dreher, the Catholic judge, have been communicating with each other about this Debtor on an ex parte basis. U.S. Trustee Colin Kreuziger, Chapter 7 Trustee Nauni Manty, and Nancy Dreher, the Catholic judge, are of the same race and religion and their track record demonstrates their conspiracy and deceitful practices to hurt the Debtor.
As a general rule, whenever somebody uses race, color, or creed as a title when referring to somebody else, bad things are about to happen. Right? You never hear “Blackie Elie Mystal, the dark skinned blogger… is a really nice guy who is smart and attractive.”
In any event, nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition:
Even though all documents have been produced, Jesuitess Nauni Manty keeps repeating the same lie that records are missing. Across the country the court systems and particularly the Bankruptcy Court in Minnesota, are composed of a bunch of ignoramus, bigoted Catholic beasts that carry the sword of the church. Judge Dennis O’Brien is a Jesuit, Judge Nancy Dreher is a Catholic Knight Witch Hunter, U.S. Trustee Colin Kreuziger is a priest’s boy, and the infamous Chapter 7 Trustee Nauni Manty is a Jesuitess. Debtor and its representatives have never experienced any justice at the hands of these inquisitors. Since Debtor has been vocal is exposing their dirty deeds, these dirty Catholics have conspired together to hurt Debtor.
A “Jesuitess” — and wait, she’s not done. The lions are still hungry:
The November 18th Order further states that the Debtor representative is required to be present at the hearing. Given what these dirty Catholics are capable of and particularly since there is no law to protect the minority, Debtor is concerned about what their secret plans are for the December 6, 2011 hearing. Catholic deeds throughout the history have been bloody and murderous.
Okay everybody, time for your MPRE pop-quiz. As horrible as this is, Rebekah Nett might have escaped serious sanctions if she just owned up to it. But her attempts to walk this back are actually making things worse. From the St. Paul Pioneer Press:
Nett said she didn’t want to talk about the memo, but did allow that Dreher “yelled at” her about it Tuesday. She wouldn’t elaborate, and Dreher’s office declined to comment.
Nett also said the views expressed in the filing – which carries her signature – were those of her client. “Did I write what was in that paper? No,” she said.
That itself could create problems for the lawyer. Rule 11 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure says that when a lawyer signs a submission to the court, she is attesting that she believes the submission is supported by evidence or legal argument.
“The lawyer who signs a document is adopting it as her own, and I don’t believe that she can avoid responsibility by saying that the client drafted it,” said Douglas Heidenreich, who teaches professional responsibility at William Mitchell College of Law.
Oh Minnesota Law, it’s not a great day when the local press is going to a William Mitchell professor to explain to the world how one of your graduates is an ethical failure. But you see this a lot from young lawyers who don’t know what they’re doing. There’s no shame in telling your client, “you can fire me but I’m not going to make that argument.”
But I do expect this story to have a happy ending. I imagine that pretty soon Nett will fall to the earth and hear a voice that says: “Rebekah, Rebekah, why do you persecute me?”
