I am not trying to run up the score. There's enough material in this blog post to write Parts Thirty-Five through Forty of The Madness of Jill Clark, but I'm going to serve up all the latest facts in one blog posting; a veritable 6-course meal of Clark's latest nutty doings...
1.) Clark tried to file a lawsuit against Secretary of State Mark Ritchie, whining about the primary election where she finished third. Iowa threw the lawsuit out in one day. Click here for the lawsuit document. Click here for the tersely-worded dismissal.
2.) Another desperate little "iPhone missive" was sent by Clark in the Terry and Jerome Yzaguirre case still clinging to existence in federal court. The missive can be summarized, "Dude, you're totally messing with the court calendar!" Click here to read Clark's typo-ridden message to the court asserting she is still out of town and, dear god, stuff is getting changed on the calendar without proper notice, waaaaaaaah. Speculation abounds as to Clark's "out of town" whereabouts but she is rapidly become the "iPhone lawyer."
3.) Oral arguments were scheduled for September 18 in one of three appellate cases involving a David Lasica, which concerns some kind of failed business partnership around (it would appear) home renovation efforts. Since the oral argument in A12-0555 was scheduled the same day Clark sent the desperate little missive in regard to the Yzaguirre case, and asserted she was "out of town," it's doubtful Clark managed to make the oral arguments.
4.) The deadline has now passed for Clark to seek a State Supreme Court writ of certiorari in the "Blogosphere Trial of the Century" against this blogger. Though Clark did file some crazy paperwork trying to remove the case to a federal court in the Western District of Wisconsin, that filing appears a nullity. The much-publicized verdict in Jerry Moore vs. John Hoff a/k/a Johnny Northside stands, and this blogger doesn't owe Jerry Moore a dime.
5.) The Minnesota appellate court sent a "fish or cut bait" letter (click here) in the never-ending JACC case, which now solely concerns the size of the attorney fees which will have to be paid by the "Old Majority" losing side, represented by Clark. Right now the appeals are being handled by Dokor Dejvongsa, the law partner of Ben Myers.
In the midst of Clark's spectacular career meltdown, Dejvongsa and Myers have jumped in to assist but, as shown by this letter, to little effect.
6.) The end is near. The State Supreme Court has issued a scheduling order in Clark's disciplinary matter, now complicated by her opportunistic claims of a health crisis. ORAL ARGUMENT WILL BE HEARD OCTOBER 17, 9 AM, in Courtroom 300 of the Minnesota Judicial Center. The Board of Professional Responsibility will get 35 minutes to argue against Clark, and Clark (or her representative) will get 25 minutes to respond.
It is expected that when, not if, Clark is suspended from the practice of law that bottles will become uncorked and small yet raucous drinking parties will break out in a number of quarters, including wherever I happen to be at that moment.
