Jill Clark showed up for her own hearing today regarding whether she should be placed on disability inactive status, click here for previous explanation regarding this hearing in Part Thirty-Nine of the Madness of Jill Clark.
After a middling performance by her attorney, Diana Longrie, Clark rocked the microphone for 9 minutes with a self-pitying rant about how she was "falsely imprisoned" in the office of the Lawyers' Board of Professional Responsibility, (LBPR) that her seizures are cured but now she suffers PTSD, (from the way she has been treated by judges, you see) and the corrupt judicial system has been trying to "break" her and has succeeded, to the detriment of herself and her clients.
Clark said she possesses a stack of info "that high" about judicial misconduct. Quirking her eyebrow and leaning forward, Clark told the court...
..."you know" why this is happening; as though the Supreme Court could fool most of the public about the evil conspiracy against Jill Clark but, oh no, they can't fool JILL CLARK HERSELF. (Acid little overly dramatic Clark laugh)
Though she wasn't dragged off by bailiffs, or called out of order, her rant was worthy of Al Pacino in And Justice For All, albeit a much older Al Pacino wearing drag. The court didn't break into Clark's speech for quite a while but simply let the crazy train run the length of its rails.
Oh, also Clark said somebody had provided confidential documents to Judge Zimmerman, and Zimmerman provided this stuff to Johnny Northside, and now "the blogosphere" is full of her information as a result.
Zimmie, Zimmie, you said she'd never find out about us!
(That was the joke font, duh, I neither admit nor deny Judge Zimmerman gave me documents that I can, duh, get right off PACER)
Craig Klausing had an opportunity to respond after Clark spoke but decided to rest on his overwhelmingly strong hand and say nothing. I could have sworn he was trying to look serious and sad while suppressing a smirk.
Diana Longrie, ignoring the niceties of lawyer representation, tried to speak to this blogger moments after the conclusion of the hearing, attempting to hand over her business card offering an "interview,"actually pursuing this blogger out of chambers into the hallway. Longrie was rebuffed for the reason that Longrie represents Clark, and Clark is currently suing this blogger, and this blogger is represented by counsel.
So talk to my lawyer.
Those are the highlights, but more nitty gritty details will be provided in a subsequent blog post. As expected, the court took no action today but took the matter under advisement. Much of the hearing concerned arcane and technical matters about which rule applies and how, precisely, it should be applied to Clark's, er, unique situation. Clark herself said she was "in a class of one."
And, of course Level Three Sex Offender "Spanky" Pete Rickmyer was there, sitting right next to Clark before the hearing started. You know you're in trouble when your really close circle of supporters is so small it includes a child molester, and if you were honest you'd be apologizing to HIM for being such a lousy friend and lawyer.
