Jerry Moore, as every reader of this blog knows, owes me $3,799.69 from a judgment against him left over from the time he tried to sue me for defamation and was less than successful. Recently, I heard Moore seemed to be associating himself with Buckner. My first thought was, "I wonder if BUCKNER has any unpaid judgments?"
Yes. In fact, the amount is almost eerily similar. Way back in November of 1995, Brett D. Buckner who lived in the 55411 zip code was sued by Dennis Thompson, who was doing business under the name Carefree Travel Services. Buckner's co-defendant was a guy named Michael Shelton, but final judgment was only against Buckner.
The judgment of $3,039.73 has the notation "EXPIRED" on the MNCIS system, though I see the judgment was docketed on March 11, 1996. So it sure looks to me, based upon what I'm reading in this online court system record, that Brett Buckner owed a judgment of $3,000 plus change and never paid his judgment. The case is 27-CV-96-003658.
Oh, but there's MORE. In 2001, Liberty Credit Services, Inc of Apple Valley obtained a judgment against Brett Buckner for $1,927.28. What happened to THAT judgment? Once again, it's "expired" though there was an order for disclosure filed in 2006. Kind of like the order for disclosure I recently obtained against Jerry Moore.
The Liberty Credit Services Case is 27-CV-01-006748.
It is possible, however, that Buckner came into some assets in 2012, when he applied to probate the estate of his deceased mother, Dora C. Buckner.
A commenter on Northside politics sent me the following text message about Brett Buckner:
He has never ever ever ever done a single successful thing. Not a job. Not a volunteer project. Nothing. Everything he does ends in some kind of less than fully completed or fully successful status.
To which I say: That sounds like hyperbole. It seemed like Buckner was right there holding out his eager paws to obtain his dear departed mother's assets, and that probate looks like it was all neatly wrapped up, so there's THAT.
