Wrongdoers Cannot Hide behind Label "Farmers" to Avoid Involuntary
Recently, Domina Law Group's work on behalf of more than 40 victims
of the larges cattle fraud scheme in U.S. history, led to an important
judicial submission on issues related to bankruptcy protection.
George L. Young, and his assistant, Kathleen M. McConnell, were convicted
of federal crimes for defrauding dozens of persons, from Great Britain
to Nevada and from the Canadian to the Mexican Borders in the U.S., out
of their investments and nearly 150,000 head of cattle, causing losses
of more than $180 million.
After administration of the bankruptcy case and global resolution of all
issues, Young attempted to upset the apple cart by claiming the Bankruptcy
Court was without any authority to issue any orders because Young claims
to be a farmer. Farmers cannot be placed in involuntary bankruptcy proceedings.
Domina Law Group recently submitted its Brief arguing, strenuously, that
Young’s position is without merit.
