It may amuse some to learn that, if one discounts the money seized from Lloydminster's Patrick "Lord Baron Twatrick von Loadenhosen" Ross that went to pay long-outstanding cost awards, even after being relieved of some $9,000, Patrick now owes me more than he did when I registered my defamation judgment against him back in August of 2021. As difficult as it might be to wrap your head around that, if you do the math, that's the facts.
The first collection by Saskatchewan sheriffs netted some $6,400, which went entirely to pay off some cost awards that Patrick had been blithely ignoring all these years, plus letting the sheriffs collect their cut in the way of administrative fees, which means that not a penny of that went to the outstanding amount for the judgment itself:
Since then, the sheriffs have collected another $2,500 or so but, if you run the numbers, given that the outstanding judgment amount is increasing by 5 per cent per year, that $2,500 does not quite cover the interest that has accrued since last August. In short -- and take a moment to truly appreciate this -- despite Patrick's bank account having been lightened by almost $9,000 recently, he actually owes me more with respect to the outstanding judgment amount now than he did before.
At this point, it is fair to say that Patrick is never, ever, ever, ever, ever going to get out from under this. So he might want to get comfortable living in his car. Since it's a Ford Escape, I'm sure the seats recline.
P.S. I'm still moderately interested in tracking down the meatspace co-ordinates of Baron von Loadenhosen (particularly his place of employment), but it's not critical given that the Saskatchewan sheriffs have Patrick's bank account info I gave them, and they will stop by on a regular basis and clean it out for me.
What Patrick needs to worry about is the long game here since, over time, it is simply not sustainable for him to have his bank account emptied every month or two, and it's even less sustainable given that Canada's Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy would really like to have a chat with him, and his idiotic million dollar defamation lawsuit against Peter Skinner will assuredly be kicked to the curb, at which time Peter will be awarded costs, and Patrick will have someone looking to collect from him from another direction and, eventually, if he files his income tax and expects a refund, I can assure you he won't be seeing it as the OSB will step in and garnish it for my benefit.
So Patrick is welcome to keep running, and refusing to answer his phone, and refusing to reply to e-mails, and refusing to acknowledge registered letters sent to his Lloydminster address but, eventually, he will need to surface, and when he does, there will be a number of very unhappy people with court orders waiting for him. And if he thinks his life is uncomfortable now, well, he has no idea.
