I have way too much going on at the moment, lots of hot stuff on Cipriano to scan and post for Graham Berry, but I have to break off on scanning and produce a "knowledge report" on today's "big win."
Generally my bankruptcy court business has been kind of dull. Not so today, and the way it ended may have Helena running around a tree by dark. This was a hearing to compel me to turn over various kind of financial records, most of which I don't have, some of which they already have, and some of which make no sense at all, and when the records are produced for me and my wife to undergo more 2004 exam.
Helena Kobrin and Alan Cartwright (who writes on OSA stationary in a Cipriano exhibit) showed up for the cult, Tom Hogan and Elane Seid as local lawyer and bankruptcy specialist, nasty Marc and Darlene for the cheering section.
Helena had on a fetching blue outfit with a white blouse but she looked *awful*, like she had aged several years since the last time I saw her. Things must not be going so well at the firm of Moxon and Kobrin. On the positive side, her fluttering eye tic has somewhat subsided into a paralyzed OT3 stare.
Today was one of those cattle call sessions bankruptcy courts run with 30-40 cases on the calendar. The Judge put us off to near the end, had us up for a while and sent everyone out in the hall to work out some kind of deal. My big objection was the cult wanting such things as names of doctors and dentists, and to the cult lawyers doing the depositions. Hogan agreed that information of that sort could be redacted. We went back in and my lawyer gave the judge a report that all was well, except that there was this issue of who could do the 2004 depositions.
Hogan made the representation to the judge that Kobrin and Moxon were independent lawyers just the same as him and Seid, and whoever had time would do the depositions. I objected to my lawyer who objected to the judge. Judge Weissbrodt then called Helena over to the mike and asked her how much work her firm did for RTC and all related corporations. Helena waffled a bit saying quite a lot, and the judge quickly cut her off by saying "is it over 50%?." Since just about *all* Moxon and Kobrin do is scientology related, she had to say yes.
Judge Weissbrodt cut her off and said any exams had to be done by Seid or Hogan, she and other RTC types could not be present, and any transcripts had to be redacted by Seid or Hogan of information which could be used by RTC to bother employers, clients, contributors, doctors, or the like.
We split, me grinning from ear to ear, the cult lawyers and fans looking sandbagged.
A few days ago, I had filed a short declaration about the harassment RTC/SPC have been doing of my clients, and samples of the nasty DA posters put up around where I work and near my home by the RTC controlled Scientology Parishioners Committee.
Naturally, Helena had to respond. She did so with a few postings of mine off the net which did nothing for them, and--with absolutely no explanation as to why or even *who* this person is--a copy of Judge Williams vexations litigant ruling on Graham. I had been racking my brain trying to come up with a justification to file the Cipriano declaration in my bankruptcy case, and Helena provided me with a perfect opening.
My bankruptcy lawyer has become increasingly perplexed at this whole business. My case is among the most massive in filings he has ever seen, especially considering so few assets are involved. He finally asked me what is *wrong* with these people. I pointed him to my ftp files on the drug-like effects cults have on people who get into them (and why) and to the Xenu files to get the core space cootie "beliefs" of scientology.
All in all, a rewarding afternoon, especially considering that I had to be there anyway to file the appeal from Judge Wear's dismissal of the IRS case.
