It’s a beautiful day for the beach. Even though some of us may be at the beach today (and if you are at the beach, why didn’t you invite us?), bankruptcy, like time, waits for no one. Wherever we happen to be, ‘tis the season for a little something light – or at least lighthearted. In the spirit of summer Fridays, we wanted to take the opportunity to bring you some of the colorful quotes that we’ve come across in bankruptcy decisions over the past few months. And for those of you who crave more: worry not – we’ll keep combing our records in efforts to bring you further installations of Bankruptcy Beach Reading as we continue to geek out over hidden gems like these!
Creditors Behaving Badly
In re Himes, 2014 WL 2442062 (Bankr. C.D. Ill. May 29, 2014) (Fines, J.)
A creditor texted the debtor the following:
Boy the apple doesn’t fall very far from the tree does it. You are such a lying piece of * * * *. Nobody at that table believed a word you said today. You should have had your lying piece of * * * mother coach you before you went to court. She’s a much better liar, or I should say perjurer than you are, but she had more practice also. They are not done with you. Marsha is watching both of you closely.”
