So the moral of the story is: Steal all the money you can from victims and then file for bankruptcy. It's one of those stories that will raise a person's blood pressure. Just another lessen in the criminal's "Crime Pays" handbook.

Maybe you can go out drinking all night and the next morning get a 99 on an Advanced Calculus final. However, if you also took a spelling test I guarantee that you would flunk royally. Get a life!

lol I was prepared to help asbestos head by saying "the spelling of justice as justus, usually is done on purpose to highlight the justice system when it only protects a certain class or elite" but his response tells me he wasn't making a respectable stance but just an airhead who cheated on a cal test lol

It's a play on words. When you go to the court to get some Justice, that's all you find - Just Us!

That's an old one.

He should file bankruptcy as well - it worked for the defendant, why not this poor man? He clearly should not have to repay the money, but legally he has too. If he files bankruptcy, he will rid himself of this injustice even if it is the law. God bless him - I hope he perseveres! I would purchase pet supplies from him if I knew where his business was in Thomaston!!

This is an example of Judges that can interpret the law as they see fit. Where is the oversight for them?? I would appeal this till the cows come home!
