The Supreme Court of Wisconsin recently responded to the 2011 grievance filed by the Catholic League against attorney Rebekah M. Nett. We asked that she be investigated for making stridently anti-Catholic remarks against United States Bankruptcy Judge Nancy Dreher, and others. We are happy to report that she has lost her license for a year.
The formal complaint we lodged cited the following:
• Nett filed a memo written by her client, Naomi Isaacson, which said, “Across the country the court systems and particularly the Bankruptcy Court in Minnesota are composed of a bunch of ignoramus, bigoted Catholic beasts that carry the sword of the church.”
• The memo called U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Nancy Dreher “a Catholic Knight Witch Hunter.” [Note: Dreher is not Catholic.]
• The memo called one bankruptcy trustee “a priest’s boy,” and another a “Jesuitess.”
• For her part, Nett called Dreher and other court personnel “dirty Catholics,” adding that “Catholic deeds throughout the [sic] history have been bloody and murderous.”
Ed Koch, the former mayor of New York City, must be looking down on us with a smile. He strongly supported our case against Nett. We are delighted that Ms. Nett’s Wisconsin law license has been suspended for a period of one year.
