The Crosslake Compound sold entirely to an oil man. He is a friend of Cooper from TCF and Cooper dodged a bullet on this deal. The place sold for 9 million dollars. This will reset the real estate market on the Whitefish chain. The new owner has a pregant wife and Chip Lomiller is watching over the house and everything else when the owner is gone. Not much changes, skanks come and go and some just stay. Stay tuned to the paper for more about Cooper

Chip Lomiller was Denny's right hand man for the Cross Lake compond. Interesting he is involved w/the new owner.

Bankruptcy Trustee Randall Seaver and his attorney Matthew Burton will never stop litigating "on the behalf of the Hecker estate" until the estate is near depletion and they have sucked it dry with their $400.00 an hour in attorney fees which they get to bill to the estate. They are truly vampire squids. Win or lose, they get paid. Seaver is a Trustee Gone Wild.

I would be shocked if any adverse ruling in the Bankruptcy Court against the Trustee were not appealed. Afterall, win or lose and irrespective of the merits or probability of success, Seaver and Burton get paid. The Bankruptcy Court recently approved over $1,000,000 in attorney fees to these two frivilious, villanous, and vexatious litigators. Excessive and unnecessary litigation at the expense of the remaining unsecured creditors of the Hecker estate is a breach of a trustee's fiduciary duties to the creditors.

The remaining creditors of the Hecker estate should file a lawsuit against Seaver to shut him down.

As suspected, Trustee Randy Seaver, who has been paying himself $400.00 or more an hour out of the Hecker estate, has filed notice of appeal with the Bankruptcy Court on the Northridge ruling. Dee Deepass who writes for the Startribune and covers fitness and health issues and rather strangely, complex bankruptcy cases like the Hecker matter, has ignored recent developments regarding the Northridge litigation. This is not suprising, Deepass gets almost all of her information on the Hecker story from Seaver's attorney Matthew Burton, so I am sure she did not want to write about Seaver losing his Northridge law suit. That might expose Seaver to negative press.

It is a good story though. A Trustee is paying himself $400.00 an hour, filing meritless law suits and win or lose, he gets paid nonetheless. Despite having very little possibility of winning on appeal, Seaver and his attorney, Matthew Burton just cannot resisst another feeding at their private attorney fee trough which is the Hecker estate. The result: appeal. One thing is for certain, they will bring their horse like appetites to the trough once again. Randy Seaver is the absolute pinnacle of everything that is wrong with the legal system in the United States today.

When the Hecker estate finally closes and Seaver returns to the grime of having to close run of the mill Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Estates quickly and efficiently, he will long for the golden days of Hecker where he paid himself $400.00 an hour in attorney fees and had carte blanche to take the most inefficient approach possible to all matters. The remaining unsecured creditors would be much better off just having Seaver pay out the remaining cash in the Hecker estate and close it. Instead, they will have to indure yet another year of Trustee Randy Seaver gone wild.

So, Seaver lost again at the Bankruptcy Court (Jan 2013) and once again, he is appealling. Why not? Mo money mo money and boatz n hoes. He does not care as win or lose, its $400+ an hour that he gets to pay himself. But, the time is coming when Seaver has to wrap up his years long sordid attorney fee orgy and return to the real world, where some folks are patiently awaiting his return and the setting down of his immunity armor as Trustee. This dusgruntled pool would like a reckoning for years and years of incompetent, sloppy, and very much actionable legal work on homeowner association liens and his firm's inability to handle them correctly. As a partner to this flawed toxic legal work, Seaver has full personal liability. I am sure the other greedy pig litigators in town will be pleased to know he is fush with cash like a fat cat banker so colllection will not be their primary concern. Enjoy it while lasts Seaver because your day is coming.
