You don't get the point. The point is, the BK trustee's job is to monetize anything (ASSETS) he can find to help pay her creditors. He does have this power.<quoted text>
"If someone, say a lawyer, realtor, author, artist, etc" has unpaid commissions/due what you are referring to is considered "accounts receivable", required to be disclosed upon the filing of bankruptcy. Why that does not make for an valid comparison is the contract or agreement was made PRIOR to the filing.
The reason I suggest you have recently arrived from a communist country is you completely overlook Casey's Right to Privacy and/or Freedom of Speech. You have the trustee and the Courts about to embark in an auction of illegal goods.
Furthermore, until the appeal process of the two remaining lying charges is utterly exhausted, Casey Anthony remains protected under the First Amendment, her right to silence. A bankruptcy court cannot strip her of those rights, nor can it prevent her from either testifying on her behalf or against others, in future legal proceedings.
It has nothing to do with Casey's rights to freedom of speech or privacy, as the BK court can not force her to TELL/SELL her story.
What the court can do, however, is strip her of the right to make a profit off her story if she ever decides to SELL it. The trustee considers her story,(if she ever decided to SELL it), an ASSET.
The motion states that Casey's cooperation is not needed.
Casey's team has not filed a reply motion, meaning, they don't intend to fight this, and the auction will go forth and the highest bidder will hold the rights to her story....meaning if she tried to profit from her story, any monies would go to same, not to Casey.
My question would then be, if she ever sold her story, would the highest bidder be obligated to turn that money over to pay her creditors, as this "brilliant" plan does not address that aspect, considering that the BK trustee considers this an asset and it's his job to locate assets to pay her creditors. Simply put, would James M. Schober (assuming he remains the only bidder) be obligated to pay her debts out of the hypothetical proceeds?
All in all, I think this is ridiculous, but it is was it is, unless Casey's contests it, which they have so far not done.
James, whoever he is, is a fool..........unless of course he is a "friend", rather than a "foe".
