Though it will be pretty hard to top my last update about Jill Clark, which included a "sealed" court document about her spectacular mental health issues, today there are some relevant pieces of news to report and so I must accept the fact not every blog post can be a JNS BLOG SECRET SQUIRREL SUPER EXCLUSIVE. Some blog posts are just bread-and-butter updates about attorney Jill Clark's long, slow, sad slide into legal oblivion.
Clark has a blog, of sorts, called "Jill Clark Speaks" which purports to update the public about the struggle over her law license. The blog promises so much more than it delivers, but I like to check it about once daily just out of idle curiosity.
It's like watching troubled Hollywood starlet Lindsey Lohan. You want to tear your eyes away. You tell yourself a decent person wouldn't want to learn all these sorry details about a troubled woman who is likely to be found one day drowned in her own vomit. But you are unable to extinguish the drive to find out what crazy, self-destructive stunt she has pulled TODAY.
So, I check out "Jill Clark Speaks Dot Com" to get my fix of lawyerly self-destruction with a Clarkian twist...
Alas, Clark's blog is having issues. Turns out somebody didn't pay the domain name fee and now a little "robot man" (pictured above) is popping up on the screen to alert the whole world that Jill Clark didn't pay the internet light bill. As of today it's 9 days overdue.
This isn't the only thing going wrong in Clark's life. There's a new filing showing on the State Supreme Court website. Though the document itself is not visible, the title of the document is. And its name is "Affidavit of Noncompliance."
It's always possible that Clark filed this document and I'm fooled by the name of the document into thinking it's something that it is not. However, I happen to know that Clark hasn't, as per the order of the Supreme Court, notified all opposing counsel about her suspended status. She hasn't notified me and my lawyer, for example. And I know of one other case where the defendant wasn't notified, as well. So I would tend to think the document involves Clark's lack of "compliance" with the order of the Supreme Court to endure the humiliation of notifying each and every opposing attorney of being suspended from the practice of law.
And so we watch as she slowly circles the drain. Gone are the days of turning North Minneapolis politics upside down by suing decent people on behalf of bad actors, of giving interviews to the Star Tribune and City Pages, of running a political campaign.
This is the end.
