Motion To Dismiss In (Baseless And Frivolous) Defamation Lawsuit Against CRA Chair Donald Bellfield...

CRA Chair Donald Bellfield, who was slapped with a defamation lawsuit so frivolous that (in my humble opinion) it could have been conceived by notoriously frivolous litigant "Spanky" Pete Rickmyer, may finally get some relief on June 23, 8 a.m. courtroom number 759 in the Hennepin County Government Center. A hearing will take place on a Motion To Dismiss, click here for the document. One can reasonably expect many of the same characters who starred in the Dolan reappointment hearing to make an appearance. Disruptive potty-mouths should be aware the kind of behavior tolerated in City Council chambers will NOT be allowed in court.

Word is that attorney Ferdinand "Ferd" Peters is representing Bellfield--the same attorney who represented North Minneapolis activist Megan Goodmundson, and others, against a fruitless "defamation" lawsuit filed by attorney Ben Myers, whose "Old Majority" lawsuit against the Jordan Area Community Council also failed miserably. Ferd appears to be developing something of a specialty in defending pointless defamation lawsuits.

Hopefully the defendants in this matter will make an effort to recoup their attorney fees.

That pointless defamation lawsuit filed against Megan Goodmundson and others is still having a ripple effect through the universe. Nearly 2 years later, originally filed in 8/08, there remains a pending disciplinary action against attorney Benjamin E Myers and his attorney and fellow law school classmate buddy Kristi McNeilly. Word is reason this disciplinary action is still pending is that OTHER ethics complaints have been filed against both of these attorneys. I believe some of the other legal problems have been documented here on JNS blog.
