Judge: Hide This
Truth Ignored While Fed Lawyer Asks Judge To Protect Her Brethren

See how our corrupt government lawyers' motion to hide the eToys crime allegations plainly sidesteps truth and justice. These allegations are in the form of a whistleblower document that was sworn under penalty of perjury by Laser Haas. Rather than evaluate the sworn allegations by the whistleblower, Smelly Kelly Stapleton acts to cover it up. Kelly's treasonous use of taxpayer funds created the "Judge, Hide This" motion which you really must read. Read it not just for what it says, but for what it doesn't say.

  • It doesn't say that any of the allegations written and sworn by Mr. Haas are false.
  • It doesn't say that Mr. Haas incorrectly argues the law.
  • It doesn't say that the alleged misconduct and crime have no bearing on the matter before the Judge.
  • It doesn't tell the presiding Judge that his obligations under the Judicial Canons, State ethics, as well as under statute (including but not limited to 18USC3057) are somehow inapplicable, superfluous, moot, or waived.
  • It doesn't state how the criminal allegations were handled by Stapleton and her brother revolving door U.S. Trustee fed lawyers, or even claim they were handled correctly or adjudicated.

"Smoking Gun", anyone? Here is U.S. government lawyer Kelly Stapleton using tax dollars to persuade (successfully of course) a federal judge that crimes by a connected bankruptcy lawyer should be hidden. Read below an excerpt from the document which sought to cover up the misconduct.

Ummm... Kelly... We just have to nicely let you know that this like really, really, really, umm ... totally smells bad on you. Maybe you wanna go ahead and freshen up, girl. Maybe even cut a deal or something...

Significantly, Smelly Kelly Stapleton fails to address either the truth of the facts in the allegations sworn by Mr. Haas, or the applicable law. Instead, Kelly supervised DOJ Lawyers as they sought to have the truth buried by the Judge based on a technicality. These lawyers publicly asked for the favor of a cover-up by the Judge while stating that their intent was to protect the careers of their fellow government lawyers.

The DOJ Lawyers simply ask that 1) since what Mr. Haas said about the eToys misconduct and crimes could harm the careers of government U.S. Trustee lawyers, and 2) that since Mr. Haas is not technically a creditor of the specific bankruptcy case before the Judge, would the Judge please ignore all Mr. Haas had to say and order the deletion of the information from the official record - as if it never happened - and so that noone else can read it.

Remember, DOJ Lawyers and Federal Judges are both just government lawyers, and they swap roles in the revolving door known as the legal industry.

You just can't make this up. Here is the excerpt (emphasis added):

The Haas Statement, filed in this case under docket number 2210, contains impertinent and scandalous matter attacking the various professionals in these cases, including personnel of the United States Trustee Program. The impertinent and scandalous allegations of the Haas Statement carry the potential to injure the reputations and livelihoods of those professionals, and accordingly are not republished in this Motion. However, because Mr. Haas is not a party in interest in these cases and does not have any standing herein pursuant to 11 U.S.C. 1109(b), the Haas Statement serves no legitimate purpose. Accordingly, the Haas Statement should be stricken from the record and expunged from the Electronic Case Filing docket in these cases.

WHEREFORE, for the foregoing reasons, the United States Trustee respectfully requests hat the Court strike the Haas Statement from the record and direct that the Haas Statement be expunged from the Electronic Case Filing docket herein, and grant such other and further relief as is just and proper under the circumstances.

Respectfully submitted,

Oh, Kelly Beaudin ...

Well, it wouldn't be the first time that a "nice girl" got caught up in some dirty corruption involving mega rich connected lawyers. After all, why should we assume that a U.S. Trustee would not hunger for some shortcut to wealth just like Ashley Dupre? And putting this all in perspective, let's remember that what is risky for a "nice girl" must be at least doubly so for a bankruptcy lawyer.
