Workers' Jeopardy E-mail

BankruptcyMisconduct will focus here on the people and organizations who are normally empowered with the responsibility to look out for the best interests of the people who devoted their careers to the once great city of Detroit.  If you are concerned about your benefits you might want to make sure that the people who are responsible to look at for your interests are aware and involved, and an ounce prevention will be worth a pound of cure, assuming that a cure is available if Jones Day is allowed to get their way.  Here are some of the important parties:


Unfortunately, the persons listed above have had their powers and normal legal options stripped from them due to the nature of a Federal Bankruptcy Law.  Sadly, the disenfranchised workers are not solely facing the loss of their normal leaders skills and legal abilities, they face the darker reality of having their chance at a fair outcome being controlled by Jones Day - a BigLaw firm of lawyers with a history of conflict of interest violations.  How can Workers stand a chance when billion dollar Hedge Funds reign influence over supposedly unconflicted lawyers in charge?

Do you know if your leaders are doing everything they can to protect you in the Detroit Bankruptcy?  Are they pushing Bill Schuette to Investigate the Jones Day firm for their history of Conflict Of Interest related misconduct?
Bankruptcy Law provides for the Automatic Stay - which prohibits people holding contract rights, and every other sort of right, from obtaining justice outside of the bankruptcy proceedings.  In fact, you could be put in jail for trying to violate the automatic stay!  What does this mean?  Well, it means you sure as hell hope that the lawyers in charge are not crooked.  You might ask, is there any mechanism to get rid of crooked lawyers?  Well yes there is, indeed.  However, it requires getting a good lawyer to get rid of the bad lawyer.  The sad reality is that lawyers have rigged the game in favor of lawyers and against everybody else.  Lawyers wrote the rules, so it's an uphill battle to get rid of a crooked lawyer, even though many of their own rules are incredibly strict on their face.  The challenge is forcing your lawyer to stand up to another lawyer, and it's goes against the "Ape Shall Never Kill Ape" mentality, very much an "Honor Among Thieves" mentality among lawyers.  So what can be done.....
