Jeff Adams

Seriously, we can't tell if Jeff Adams, Esq. is incredibly dumb as an"attorney criminal" or if he just got whip sawed by a surprise change in the judge hearing the case.

Jeff Adams committed Fraud On The Court when he filed an affidavit in conjunction with his firms request to be retained as special counsel to the Debtor in the bankruptcy case of EAGLE BROADBAND, INC., et al.07-80605-G3-11 Southern District of Texas in Galveston.

It seems that years of inbreeding in the Adams Family may have resulted in poor Jeff getting short chained as far as mental capacity is concerned. They say it is hard to be a pimp, it's also hard to be a lawyer member of the Neo-Mafia. You see, the basic requirement to be retained by a Debtor operating under the protection of the Federal Bankruptcy Code is that the lawyer must swear under oath each and every possible Conflict Of Interest relationship and connection to all parties in the proceedings. Mr. Adams "left out" that he was an officer of a number of the Debtors.

We can not fit on one page the number of reasons why it would be wrong to allow a former officer insider of a Debtor to be in charge of any legal matters for a Debtor, particularly a DIP. Suffice it to say that it is illegal, and so important that another law requires lawyers to swear under oath every possible conflict. The only reason why this fraud on the court saw the light of day is that a public official in Texas filed an objection on the basis of the debilitating conflict.

As we have come to expect, the judge was lenient in her order against the retention. Read it here. There was no mention of Judge LETITIA Z. CLARK going through the motions of mandatory criminal referral under 18 U.S.C. § 3057. So...

BankruptcyMisconduct will step up where our federal employees are slacking.

BankruptcyMisconduct.com will prepare a criminal referral against this lawyer and forward same to an appropriate District Attorney and sundry media tools. We're just asking for copies of 1) the initial application for retention by Jeff Adams's firm Bettison, Doyle, Apffel & Guarino, P.C. along with its fraudulent affidavit, 2) the objection by the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts, and 3) the subsequent affidavit by Jeff Adams.

We can start the clock ticking now as to when Mr. Adams gets incarcerated, who knows what else is in process. Too bad for Jeff, it doesn't look like he has any bargaining leverage by informing and testifying against other corrupt lawfirms and hedge funds in order to secure a deal with the District Attorney. Unlike Suzzanne Uhland of O'Melveny & Myers and her Get-Out-Of-Jail card with respect to the mushrooming SONICblue bankruptcy fraud scandal.
