The animal kingdom is a rich resource which could enlighten us as to many intricacies of the world, such as game theory and the many unseemly forms of Symbiosis having direct analogs in Western Law's field of dreams. Consider the army ants of the rain forest, who dismantle a huge swath of plants & foliage, then pile them in mounds. A fungus develops on the destroyed (is 'killed' too harsh a word) mass of plant matter. OK, the ants destroy the forest in order to feed on the fungus which growing on the dead leaves.

OK, so let's consider what Lawyers have brought us: Our Congress (lawyers) created a unique system of Bankruptcy Law, ever evolving. Perhaps the greatest form of Corporate Welfare, or Corporate Subsidy, or Political Intrusions into Private Economic Matters is our Bankruptcy Law. Whatever.

Mark BankruptcyMisconduct's words:

The CoronaVirus Shutdown Scheme will be the greatest single cause of a massive rolling MegaCase Cluster**** the world has ever seen.
folder icon 5 MoFo Misogyny Foerster

Every now and then, a humongous law firm takes center stage and self emolliates in public. Not motivated by a cause, or a firm-wide masochistic exhibitionism fetish, or even directly by greed. BankruptcyMisconduct.com won't hypothesize on the leadership / organizational DemiseWish evident by the actions and omissions of one such firm, at least not here in this free downloads section.

Forgive our coy intro, allow us to introduce to you Misogyny Foerster, f/k/a Morrison Foerster. Everbody's favorite politically correct and ultra-progressive #BigLaw firm which has a small internal PR staff pimping their virtues as you read this. Let's ignore the obvious absurdity of their purported respect, perhaps worship, of #WomenInLaw and all things Diversity when they proudly refer to themselves as MoFo's.

Don't take our word for it, read what a growing number of women lawyers who used to work at the form have sworn. Oh, how about ongoing suits potentially expen$ive settlements in litigation against Women ex-employees represented by Sanford Heisler Sharp. Read about Rapist and #WifeBeater Partners employed at the firm, read a police report. As always, please continue to feel free to send us tips, documents or other feedback through a confidential channel.

folder icon 3 Kasowitz

Documents related to Kasowitz, Benson, Torres & Friedman, New York law firm founded in 1993. As of 2017 it employs 350 lawyers and maintains offices in several states. To be candid, we can't predict for how long this firm may continue in existence. We see parallels in the hubris and Peripheral Vision Impairment between Kasowitz and imploded firms like Hennigan, Bennett & Dorman as well as Dewey LeBoeuf. (Note: After imploding their firm, the #CrookedLawyers from HBD travelled to DeweyLeBoeuf which imploded shortly thereafter. Now these demon seeds are at Jones Day and we believe that firms days are now numbered as well.

Of course, the opinions at BankruptcyMisconduct are just that. Until, of course, they are viewed in retrospect as prophetic.

folder icon 2 Discovery Fraud

BankruptcyMisconduct is happy to provide free downloads of documents related to the illegal trick known as #DiscoveryFraud

When lawyers are ordered to produce documents, they must provide them. When lawyers either directly, or through their clients or hired agents, do not act in good faith to produce documents it is more than just an ethical violation, it is a crime.

Crimes include Spoliation (destruction) and Fabrication (fraudulent creations)

In different contexts, there are more statutes that apply. A very serious fact is when an investigation or litigation has begun, or the offending party knows it is about to or likely to occur.

Lawyers working for big #HedgeFunds are sadly oftened lured by greed into crimes of #DiscoveryFraud in order to seek favor with their big clients. The pathetic thing is that these crooked lawyers usually aren't paid anything extra for risking their law license, butt in prison, and families.

#TicToc all you dirty lawyers!

folder icon 4 Demise Wish

This download section has documents that either presage, coincide, celebrate, instigate, or review a potential, anticipated, or actual demise of a law firm or lawyer(s). Sometimes abbreviated as #DemiseWish.

BankruptcyMisconduct can offer no assurance as to the timing of any demise, neither does the exclusion of any document related to, or failure to mention, any particular firm confer our endorsement or prediction of continuing existence. Generally, the theme is always "They did it to themselves". Even the high "Honor Among Thieves" has limits - as when a crooked Lawyer flies too close to the sun:

folder icon 5 Detroit

We have long been disgusted by the scourge of dirty lawyers abusing their so-called "clients" for illicit profits:

Lawyers who run a case to enrich themselves & their hidden hedge fund friends. But this is different when we are talking about an entire city, and the retirements of scores of public employees, teachers, firemen, and police officers.

Will Americans let dirty lawyers - with a rich history of conflict of interest violations - rape Detroit like drunken sailors passing around an unconscious teenager in the back room of a third world bar?

Will you let Kevyn Orr "traffic in favors" with his Neo-Mafia associates at the infamous Jones Day law firm?

folder icon 1 Iviewit Technologies - Eliot Berstein / Silicon Graphics

Graphics Properties Holdings, Inc., et al. USBC Southern District of New York No. 09-11701 (MG) They sometimes call it a "Chapter 22" when a When a reorganized company goes back into Chapter 11, but there is much more to the story of a great forerunner of computer imagery Silicon Graphics. A creditor by the name of Eliot I. Bernstein, a self proclaimed inventor seems determined to ensure that conflict of interest and other Fraud Upon The Court does not allow lady justice to be pimped by dirty lawyers and public officials.

folder icon 6 ONDOVA

ONDOVA looks to be just one of those cases which make the U.S. look like a banana republic. Old boy network. Corruption. It's like Mississippi with a crooked small town judge, the kind of thing that was made fun of by The Dukes Of Hazzard. Unfortunately, it is real.

The judge in this case is going to get a lot of scrutiny by BankruptcyMisconduct, and his name is ironically, or perhaps appropriately: Royal Furgeson. He sure do have a serious case of King Syndrome.

Anatomy of a cover up

How much of the mainstream media, the FBI, and the DOJ is involved in the hush hush cover up of the pedophilia activity of a U.S. Senator? Bob Menendez liked to pay for sex with very young girls, underage.  This Menendez Scandal is not merely a Prostitution Scandal - It is called Pedophilia.

BankruptcyMisconduct will be bringing the supposed defenders of women's rights, and fighters against the international child sex trade, to the microphone to speak up on this one.

And as coincidence goes, wouldn't be a hoot if Bob Menendez also took part in the cover-up of Organized Crime in Federal Bankruptcy Cases? ... Stay tuned gang!!!

Dewey LeBoeuf might not be the worst of the bankruptcy bunch. Arguably, there are other BigLaw firms getting rich whilst frolicking upon the playing fields of our corrupt bankruptcy legal-industrial complex whose immorality, illegality, or bone headed flagrancy exceeds these days of Dewey's Distressful Dookie. Even thus speaking as the Devil's advocate, no person can deny that Dewey LeBoeuf today is quite the assembly of bankruptcy lawyers, indeed.

Enjoy this growing collection of spectacular reading, and use it as part of making your own informed opinion of these guys and gals.

folder icon 1 Stone & Webster

Stone & Webster was a once proud engineering firm from Boston.

At least as early as 1996, the firm believed that corruption was a worthwhile route towards winning large engineering and construction contracts. To be sure, Stone & Webster did complete many seemingly impressive projects from nuclear power plants, infrastructure at MIT, and a helicopter pad in the back yard of Dick Cheney. But the Mafia has always done a nice job at garbage hauling and keeping certain neighborhoods safe for honest citizens, when their arguably reasonable fees are paid.

It is no accident that BankruptcyMisconduct mentions "Organized Crime" so early in our coverage of Stone & Webster. You see, Stone & Webster is organized crime. And if you disagree with our analysis: as we post supporting documents here, simply register on our forum and share your opinion.

folder icon 2 Self Regulation

Our financial crisis was realized because our legal system maintains self-serving monopoly control over the regulation of misconduct by lawyers. Each of the financial schemes which contributed to the financial crisis could not have been executed but for the participation of countless lawyers. The largest drain on our nations economy is the implicit non-legislated tax imposed by our corrupted legal system. We see this tax in the form of explicit legal fees, reductions in the availability of goods and services, higher insurance costs, diversion of talent & energies into the self perpetuating legal bubble, and the enrichment of organized crime rings at the expense of productive citizenry.

folder icon 2 Sturman et. al

BankruptcyMisconduct has a certain bias. That is to say, we tend to hone in on issues of conflict of interest. Thus we were especially taken by this assertion:

One should also note that, at this point in the Cases, the Debtors, Joseph Warren, one of the executors of the Muriel Estate and the Entities were all represented by Stroock Stroock & Lavan, Judge Beatty's former law firm.

We can only wait for the Federal Special Prosecutor to unravel the truth on this one.

folder icon 5 SONICblue

This downloads section will provide free access to document related to the SONICblue , Inc. et al. bankruptcy cases, lead case No. 03-51775 (MM), USBC Northern District of California in San Jose, under judge Marilyn Morgan. While only a Federal Special Prosecutor may ultimately have the power, chutzpah, free reign, and lack of personal career self-interest which could result in a complete unraveling of the web of crime and deceit on SONICblue, these documents are quite the irrefutable beginning.

A growing list of BigLaw firms profiteering in the murky bankruptcy industry including: Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman , Levene, Neale, Bender, Rankin & Brill , O'Melveny & Myers LLP , and Hennigan, Bennett & Dorman LLP getting a lot of attention for their apparent conspiracy to commit fraud upon the bankruptcy court in the Northern District of California.

Fallout Watch...

The firm of Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP has boldly staked out its foundation for a prominent future on the pages of BakruptcyMisconduct by their early 2011 "amalgamation" with the entire bankruptcy team from Hennigan, Bennett & Dorman LLP , since renamed Hennigan Dorman LLP, that was headed by former founding and named partner Bruce Bennett. BankruptcyMisconduct readers may speculate as to whether issues of P&L, client losses, state bar regulation, insurance coverage, or criminal in nature related to Aureal or SONICblue played any part in this dramatic move. Reports are that Suzzane Uhland, Esq. is "in play" due to her implicit and explicit accessory to the SONICblue frauds upon the court.

folder icon 5 Judge Paul G. Hyman

The "Honorable" Paul G. Hyman is establishing an interesting case law record. What is black and white in one case becomes pure white in another case. In other words, it appears that Judge Hyman will embrace ridiculous legal concepts when required in order to protect certain lawyers, and punish whistleblowers. We need to have a Federal Special Prosecutor examine all sources of income for Hyman as well as his treachery against the Constitution. There may be an interesting overlap between his income sources and his opinions regarding attorney misconduct, also known as Bankruptcy Misconduct.

folder icon 5 WorldCom

At the time, the largest ever, and for many years thereafter...

MCI WorldCom redefined the meaning of a Mega Case bankruptcy. Congress and the Courts have long known of the inherent risks associated with our bankruptcy system, how conflict of interest can feed the corruption of Federal Bankruptcy Judges and DOJ lawyers by Bankruptcy Rings.

If any of us were to imagine that there were some corrupt lawyers in the bankruptcy courts... then just maybe we would find some of these corrupt lawyers running amok in the largest bankruptcy case ever?

Perhaps the criminal corporation which was running the largest series of corporate frauds would foster some amount of fraud and dishonesty in its resulting bankruptcy case...

There is no question that allowing criminals to profit while they break the law will only ensure that criminals will thrive and go on to even greater crimes. Thus we find that MCI / WorldCom is no longer the biggest case ever. Just as excusing fraud upon the court in Leslie Fay with a "10 cents on the dollar" slap on the wrist emboldened immoral executives and their lawyers to construct the WorldCom frauds, so has protecting the WorldCom post petition bankruptcy crimes inevitably brought us our current National Financial Crisis. Allowing the evil pretenders to run wild on the playing field of the U.S. Federal Bankruptcy Court "system" ensured that Lehman, General Motors, and countless banks in our financial system would fail. Feeding the evil who prey upon our nations failures makes them stronger and bolder.

Those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it.

Let's consider the quiet truths in the WorldCom case.

Worldcom: a circumstance where a peculiar plan violating the basic premise of equal recovery for similarly situated claims was confirmed (in violation of Title 11 U.S.C. Section 1129 among other statutes) which gave extra special payments to a certain small group of claims traders.

Who are these claims traders and what relationships do they and their relations have with the bankruptcy lawyers and DOJ lawyers? How does this favoritism relate to the unaffiliated claims trader whose counsel sought Court approval to resign rather than bring this favoritism and related conflict of interest issues to the attention of the Court? Notice how the Court, the U.S. Trustee, and Eliot Spitzer (at the time as Attorney General and Client #9 doing business with organized crime via money laundering) all take great pains to ignore the death threat advice acknowledged as accurate in the transcript sworn before the Court?

And how about this little tidbit, not previously disclosed to Bankruptcy Misconduct readers:

Worldcom: a circumstance where a special court order was sought, and granted, that set up a peculiar process beyond the established Federal Rules of Bankruptcy PRocedure (FRBP) which enabled a certain small group of claims traders to acquire a tremendous amount of claims without adhering to 3001(e) or the protections established for selling creditors. This group of "business people" with alleged financial ties to lawyers running the WorldCom case where thus empowered to acquire hundreds of millions of dollars in claims, far more that we believe possible if the "claims trader favor" order was not signed.

Worldcom where the bankruptcy court became the vehicle where money was diverted under the eagle eye of Marcia, Money, Marcia

The documents related to the WorldCom / MCI megacase in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Manhattan SDNY (02-13533 lead case number) cases will shed much light, and make a great starting point for a Federal Special Prosecutor. Perhaps a prosecutor could start with the death threat advice as evidenced by a transcript filed before the judge and confirmed as accurate by the attorney who sought the judge's approval to cease inquiry into the conflict of interest and payment favoritism.

folder icon 12 Bharara's Pretender Legacy

Preet Bharara sadly creates a legacy of prosecutorial misconduct and media whoring that is reminiscent of Eliot Spitzer.

BankruptcyMisconduct has a page dedicated here to Preet's Epic Punts. There is no better strategy to protecting your pretend opponents then to punt on first down!

Bharara ignores a number of sworn complaints. (Copies of some are included here)

Bharara ignores the government's own report on the guilty members of the Financial System Collapse.

The media, Congress, and perhaps a Federal Special Prosecutor, need to investigate why Preet Bharara fails to investigate and prosecute the corruption.

Mitt Romney is linked to Bain Capital first from his executive control of the hedge fund and secondly from the longer enduring financial arrangement where a portion of Bain's profits have been funneled to Romney. Preet Bharara's time as a prosecutor in New York seems to indicate, at first glance, that criminals were actively prosecuted. A closer examination of Bharara's actual record shows that certain connected persons like those involved in Wall Street's banking collapse got a free pass, not to mention the money laundering Eliot Spitzer. This downloads category hosts a number of documents which we believe will help illustrate the free pass that the hedge funds and dirty lawyers associated with Mitt Romney have received from our government lawyers in the DOJ afflicted with "career distraction disorder".

Hopes and Promises ran high in the U.S. Presidential election of 2008. We were promised a new administration which would be honest and transparent. We were promised that corruption would end. And now the Southern District of New York has a new U. S. Attorney by the name Preet Bharara.

Welcome To The Jungle

Bankruptcy Misconduct has a page dedicated to Mr. Preet Bharara which contains a number of eMails to Preet from the whistleblower in the eToys bankruptcy scandal. As stated in the emails themselves, they were sent by blind copy to a number of third parties for Preet's protection.

A wonderful set of nine detailed and illustrative documents were attached to one of the eMails. For the convenience of academics, high school and college scholarship applicants, citizens, historians, reformers, legislators, any appointed Federal Special Prosecutor, legitimate journalists, and DOJ employees beyond the corruptive influence of money & promises ... We are hosting these documents in this special Preet / eToys document download section. These documents are available without charge, and readers are urged to continue their research of the entire eToys docket.

folder icon 3 Petters Company - Doug Kelley

The Petters Company spawned several related bankruptcy cases as the conglomerate which was built on top of a Ponzi Scheme collapsed. While there was fraud related to the Ponzi scheme, the Petters enterprise did in fact take ownership of a broad range of valuable assets including ownership of a number of companies include Polaroid. As sad as the original fraud within Petters Company was, what is more outrageous is when lawyers conspire to steal from rightful creditors under Color Of Law, under the watchful and knowing eye of a Federal Judge.

The U.S.A. does not operate under the principals of our Founding Fathers and the Constitution is in shatters, torn to shreds by treasonous lawyers within our government who place the private goals of themselves and their relations above their oaths of office.

We will not be silent, nor will we let the treachery be forgotten. Read from our free collection of documents and also our web pages.

folder icon 19 eToys Cover-Up

eToys is one of the biggest and clearest bankruptcy fraud scandals involving BigLaw firms and DOJ officials. The story is not going away, and may very well be the straw that breaks the camels back of entrenched corruption in the U.S. legal system.

There are a number of documents featured below.

Documents are related to the eToys bankruptcy and frauds upon the Court, as well as the related cover-up including: conflict of interest by law firms which filed false declarations under oath, orders to disgorge fees by federal judges, communications regarding the failure to make mandatory referal for perjury / bankruptcy fraud regarding the false sworn declarations.

folder icon 6 WebSci

R. S. Tare is a software engineer of great capabilities who built a successful technology firm named WebSci.

BankruptcyMisconduct can not state whether the alleged acts of crime and corruption by numerous officers of the court against Tare and his firm were motivated by greed, racism, or some combination of the two. BankruptcyMisconduct can state for certain that the bankruptcy case, and any subsequent related criminal proceedings or legislative investigations will be covered.

Like peeling an onion, the stench grows more intense the deeper you get into it as you peel away the layers.  Mr. Tare has shown us how easy it would be for a Federal Special Prosecutor to automate a nationwide conflict search for bankruptcy firms employed by Debtors' estates with respect to parties for which such lawyers and lawfirms appeared in Federal courts.  Expanding the conflict search to include conflicts related to legal services evidenced by fee payments would be an elementary exercise in data mining, such data already available to the Federal government for example under the Patriot Act.

folder icon 8 HBD, Oaktree Capital, & Aureal

A multi Billion dollar hedge fund does a takeover of a public company, takes all the money and leaves nothing for minority stockholders. As this scandal takes place, the very same law firm simultaneously represents this hedge fund that is doing the hostile takeover as well as the same public company takeover target.

Can you ever trust a hired gun who is getting paid from both sides in a gun fight? You might wonder if there is some kind of law against this. Sure, there are several. From ethics laws in California (CRPC) to Federal Laws ranging from the criminal code (Title 18), the bankruptcy code (Title 11), as well as the judicial canons and various securities regulations.

The many instances of misconduct connected to the money grab and its cover-up is beyond a "no brainer" as violating written state ethics laws for attorneys as well as federal securities and criminal laws. Numerous SEC violations and false sworn documents before the SEC and the bankruptcy court, bankruptcy fraud and fraud upon the court.

So what do the State Bar of California do about it?

What does the DOJ do about it?

How could either of these corrupt organizations do anything against one of their own?

Yes, at least one former DOJ lawyer is deeply involved. And so is a big four accounting firm. The misconduct and crime here is well documented in these free downloads.

While this particular onion is only beginning to peal, there have already been official court orders finding misconduct even in the midst of an industry mindset in which all lawyers whether on the bench, in private practice, or as part of the "self-regulation" scheme strive to cover-up misconduct and crime by their BigLaw brethren.

BankruptcyMisconduct.com readers are not surprised to learn that the failures of the California State Bar, the California Attorney General, and the DOJ to address the unlawful business model used by a number of corrupt professionals - even in the face of sworn documented complaints - is resulting in further revelations of corruption in the legal industry of California.

Thus, there is no surprise that our non-functioning enforcement against legal industry corruption has resulted in additional bankruptcy cases with dirty lawyer acts:

The SONICblue case - features prostitution of justice by some of the same dirty law firm "professionals" as were involved in the Aureal misconduct.

Stay tuned as bankruptcymisconduct has already circulated documentation with the actual names of public officials who failed through cowardice, incompetence, and/or corruption to perform their officials duties in the Aureal matter. Soon, documents will be shared here, for free as always.

Tracking the careers of the criminal apologist bureaucrats who enable the corruption of our justice system is not merely fun, it is our obligation if we desire a stable country in which to live free.

folder icon 7 Baron's Stores Fraud Upon the Court

Yet another story of undisclosed conflict of interest. When that happens in a bankruptcy case, it is a fraud upon the court and a felony crime. Incarceration is mandated when a lawyer defrauds a court. Consider what happens when false testimony is given by non-lawyers: Martha Stewart was put in jail. That is also what happened to Little Kim.

Oh, but there is more. Failing to disclose a conflict is a serious crime even if everything else was kosher. Oh, but there is more. Dan Rather would have spotted the fabricated documents that were also filed in this case by the same lawyers. The truth is a stubborn thing. So are a number of people who will never rest until the organized crime operators in the bankruptcy industry are brought to justice.

All of the documents here in the Baron's Stores category are part of a simple and obvious scandal which will not go away. Have you seen the television show "The Mole"? Well, the reason why Congress wrote into law that lawyers for a bankrupt entity can't have any conflicts, and must disclose them, is that otherwise those lawyers could steal the company and give it to their conflicted clients. You see, a crooked lawyer could pretend that they are working for their bankrupt client, when in reality the corrupt lawyers efforts could be to benefit an opposing party (their conflicted client). Such sleezy lawyers would be acting like a spy, like a secret agent on the inside, violating all of their oaths to the Courts, the bar, and the Constitution.

Look at the documents as filed in the Baron's Stores related matters. There was a plan prepared under the direction of management, agreed to and signed by management/owners in which they would have received something and preserved their rights against other third parties. Apparantly, that plan mysteriously disappeared and instead was secretly replaced with a different plan by their hired lawyers who simultaneously held secret undisclosed loyalties to conflicted parties. The unauthorized plan eliminated any recovery for the management/owners and eliminated their chances at pursuing their claims against certain third parties. Sure, in some bankruptcy cases it can happen that management is removed from power and replaced by an official trustee. But that didn't happen in the Baron's Stores case! So there was no authority for the estate's lawyers to file a Plan which management did not authorize.
You don't have to believe Baron's Stores management that a fraudulent plan was filed with their fabricated signatures, and you don't have to believe bankruptcyMisconduct.com - Just read the sworn testimony (we have it here) of the hired document expert who states that the plan which was filed by the conflicted lawyers and then approved by the Court was a fabricated document.
