Attorney Jill Clark's grim date with destiny appears to be October 17, when the State Supreme Court will hear from both sides about whether Clark should be put on disability inactive status. The other alternative appears to be Clark NOT being on disability inactive status, and immediately facing the disciplinary charges against her which appear mighty likely to stick.
Either way, Clark is in hot water.
Let Me Break It Down And Make It Plain
My public prediction: The Supreme Court will issue an order that will be worded in careful, lawyerly language, but will easily translate into "blogerese" as follows:
ARE YOU KIDDING? YOU WILD EYED, THREE WHEELED LOON WAGON, YOU'VE BEEN FILING LOOPY STUFF IN WISCONSIN WHERE THERE ISN'T EVEN JURISDICTION AND TALKING ABOUT OMG "CONSPIRACIES" AND BEING "LITERALLY AFRAID" TO ENTER A COURT BUILDING. TOO BAD "CRAZY INACTIVE STATUS" ISN'T ONE OF THE OPTIONS. DEAR GOD, WE ONLY WISH WE HAD BUTTERFLY NETS AND FOUR POINT LEATHER RESTRAINTS INSTEAD OF GAVELS. WHOEVER IT IS WHO CARES ABOUT THIS WOMAN, FOR CRIPES SAKE, GET HER SOME PROFESSIONAL MENTAL HELP SINCE THIS KIND OF THING IS NOT OUR ROLE. OOPS, WE MEAN TO SAY OUR "HONORABLE" ROLE.
Open Season On Clark Clients?
In the meantime, Clark's clients appear to be the ones paying the price. Recently an arrest warrant was issued for...
...Dan Faith Aschemann, the "weird cult guy." With Jill Clark still listed as his attorney, Aschemann was scheduled for a probation violation hearing on September 13. He failed to show. It appears the arrest warrant is still active as of today.
Interestingly, Jill Clark is not the only "lawyer in a heap of trouble" to represent a member of Aschemann's religious cult. Click here for a recent article about Rebekah Nett, who called one judge a "black robed bigot" and filed papers with phrases like "dirty Catholic" and "Catholic Knight Witch Hunter." One lawyer blog called her "bats**t crazy pants." Though Nett is a fascinating little tangent, I don't know if Clark has any link to the cult BESIDES defending Aschemann. Clark seems to take in every sort of desperate stray and makes clients out of them, and that may be the extent of it.
For Whom The Bellfield Tolls
Meanwhile, Clark's client Dave Bicking (of the pointless Bicking v. Bellfield case against the Civilian Review Authority chair Donald Bellfield) is discovering that a lawyer who represents himself has a fool for a client. Bellfield and his co-plaintiff Michelle Gross have been told by the State Court of Appeals to "remedy deficiencies" or face dismissal and possibly sanctions, click here for order.
The deficiencies are small and technical in nature and could be easily remedied by competent counsel. Of course, competent counsel wouldn't have filed the loser case in the first place. Like a few other Clark cases, this one is in the "how much will the loony plaintiff(s) have to pay the completely innocent defendant(s)" phase.
The Tragic Yzaguirre Family
In the meantime, criminal defendant Nicole Yzaguirre and her twin brother, Eric, both appear to have made it to their recent hearings. They have new hearings scheduled which are, incredibly, also on the same day.

Nicole, accused of being involved in the forgery of a Treasury Department check, is on the right.
None of these cases will end well, and I will drink to THAT.
