Christie, or Kristie, Brandon is going viral for forcing an 89 year
old vet off his homestead property, when the old gentleman tried to get some debt relief with a bankruptcy over medical procedures that killed his wife in 2011. What sort of vicious predators are youallowing to practice law in Big Fork these days?

Warren C. Bodeker is an 89 year old World War II Army Airborne combat veteran and war hero, living in Montana, who is being thrown off of his own land and thrown out of his own house, by Montana Federal Bankruptcy Trustee, Christy Brandon, with the approval of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Montana. And to make matters worse, Warren’s wife Lorna just died of cancer this past year, and is buried there on their land, right next to the house. Warren had planned to live there till he died and then be buried right next to his wife, there on their property at 11 Freedom Lane, in the town of Plains, Montana, but now, not only is he being forced off his land, he is being forced to exhume his wife’s body and take her with him.

This is the most disgusting, callous, brutal, and unjust treatment of a WWII veteran by the “justice” system we have ever heard of. Here is a man who stepped up and went to war at the age of 19 to fight against the Japanese in the Pacific. When we say he is a war hero, we are not exaggerating. Serving in Co. B, 511th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 11th Airborne Division (see discharge papers below), Warren earned two bronze starts while making three combat jumps in the Philippine Islands in 1945.

despite the well established fact that Mr. Bodeker was in the hospital, the trustee, Christy Brandon, opposed the motion to continue the hearing. And even after knowing that Warren Bodeker was in the hospital and that he was set to undergo a competency examination which could show that he lacked the capacity to enter into the stipulation, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge, the Honorable Ralph B. Kirscher, denied Warren’s motion to continue the hearing and granted the Trustee’s motion for an order for Warren to vacate the property. The trustee, Christy Brandon, then emailed Warren to tell him that she would be there at the home on Monday, June 18, 2012, accompanied by a Sheriff’s deputy, to kick him out of his home and have the locks changed.

What attorney in their right mind walks into homestead property and says she owns it all?
This is what Ms Brandon said to Warren after following him home from the bankruptcy hearing
with an equally numbskull law enforcement officer.
They took a sheep's head off the wall and declared it to be a hidden asset.

This man risked his life in a daring combat jump from the low altitude of 500 feet (so low that reserve parachutes are useless, and a chute malfunction meant death) to rescue 2,000 innocent men, women, and children who faced certain death if he and his Airborne brothers had not made that jump that morning, February 23, 1945 (after the rescue, the Japanese returned to the area and massacred 1,500 local Filipino civilians, killing men, women, and children). And this is how the U.S. government thanks this man for his service?

We will post more details on this disgraceful travesty as they become known, but what is most important right now is that we have a duty to help this WWII hero in his time of need. Warren Bodeker needs:
1.LEGAL HELP. First of all, he needs a competent, tenacious bankruptcy lawyer to assist him in challenging the stipulation which waived his homestead exemption, and challenging the forced sale of his home and land. We are calling on any and all bankruptcy lawyers across the United States to step up and help this man. If you are an attorney who can help, please email us at: [email protected] and put “LAWYER” and “WWII vet” in the subject line. As noted above, Warren has an appointment scheduled with a psychologist who will conduct an assessment of his mental capacity to understand complex legal issues and his capacity and competency to enter into the stipulation which waived his homestead right. But he will need a real fighter of a bankruptcy lawyer who is willing to help him challenge the validity of that stipulation once the evaluation is done.
2.FINANCIAL HELP. Warren will need assistance to pay for that lawyer. There is a legal defense fund set up for him by close friends in Plains who are helping him (a truly wonderful family, Dan and Roxsanna Ryan, has stepped up to help him, including offering him a room in their home once he is kicked out of his home). They have set up a paypal account for him and a legal defense bank account. If you would like to donate directly to that legal defense fund, click here.

Christy Brandon has 14 years of experience as an attorney. Evidently she has 0 years of experience as an intelligent, qualified lawyer.
She filed a motion as trustee to hire herself as
her own attorney. Her rate is $240 per hour.
Like Barack and Michelle Obama, she should be disbarred for life, for using her credentials to
wage what amounts to war on an 89 year old vet,
struggling with medical bills we ALL know are
big pharma's own war against the people of America.

"11 Freedom Lane" does not resolve as a real address through Bing, Google, or the USPS.

The articles I've seen going around show that the "hidden assets" were gold and silver - quantities, I haven't found out yet.

How about you wait to fire up the torches until after you know the whole story - because half of it is obviously fabricated at this point.

As Vets we know the whole story of how we get crapped on. The lawyer hires herself doesn't that strike you as odd? Maybe just a tad criminal like a kick back ? I'm a Christian and DAV and an Oath Keeper. I was proud to help that fellow Vet out with some cash. He did more for this country then most people will ever do including myself.

I've been to the guy's house. It is indeed on FREEDOM LANE, a road he named himself when he bought the property.

You aren't very bright, are you...

This really sucks.
Being born in Montana myself makes me even more angry. It should not happen in Mt.
The Vets should not be getting crapped on. The people doing this in my view are scum.

This so called 'lawyer' should be administered a little street justice. More proof that lawyers are the scum of the earth.
