Attorney Jill Clark, the "counsel for Crazy Town" facing lawyer disciplinary hearings, has been noticeably ABSENT of late.
Oh, wait, that's a stock photo of a bottle of ABSENTE, not ABSENT.
In any case...despite having a shiny new blog ("Jill Clark continues") since September 4 Clark hasn't put any new information into the blogosphere about her absence, her new filings, or the progress of her disciplinary hearings, now complicated by Clark's assertions of health problems.
Clark has been a loose cannon in North Minneapolis politics for the last several years, filing loony lawsuits on behalf of assorted bad actors like Jerry Moore, Al Flowers, and the JACC "Old Majority" ousted from power in the Jordan Area Community Council. Her spectacular demise has been closely monitored by many, with this blog becoming the de facto central clearinghouse of information, especially with Clark promising new information but then, in the customary Clark way, flaking out.
Now there's been a development in the federal case of Terry Yzaguirre and Jerome Yzaguirre v. Minneapolis, et al, which this blog wrote about previously as the "free my beater" lawsuit, click here.
According to an email sent to the federal court by Jill Clark...
...from her iPhone, which is viewable if you click here, Clark is "out of town and did not expect to be away so long." She says that "my firm does not have another lawyer to cover for me" and she "will not be able to locate a substitute on such short notice." Thus it would appear that neither Ben Myers, Dokor Dejvongsa, Diana Longrie, or Julie Delgado ONeil is willing to assume responsibility for this slam dunk loser of a case, despite otherwise being involved to some degree in helping Jill Clark during what appears a career-ending crisis.
Talking out of both sides of her mouth, Clark writes that plaintiffs want the court to "order Defendants" to an "early settlement conference," but also says "Plaintiffs do intend to end the complaint, and we are fine having the Court set a deadline for that."
The "email by Iphone" was sent to "Boylan Chambers," which appears to reference The Honorable Judge Arthur Boylan. The email was cc'd to Tracy N. Fussy, who is a Minneapolis Assistant Attorney and presumably representing the defendants.
