The hunt for Patrick Ross: Yeah, it's on.

(UPDATE, Saturday, Feb 25: Even though Patrick Ross has publicly announced (probably stupidly, but that's par for the course) that he is "looking forward" to his March 6 court date in Calgary, he appears to think this will be the appropriate venue to "report a crime." If Patrick thinks this required appearance will be the appropriate forum to air a laundry list of old and irrelevant grievances, I suspect he will be sorely disappointed.

Oh, and given that he has now openly and publicly bragged about how much he anticipates this court appearance, if he mysteriously doesn't show, things are going to go very badly for him indeed. If you run into him before March 6, you might want to point that out.

I realize this might be getting repetitive but, as hard as it might be to believe, my lawyers are still looking for malicious defamer Patrick Ross, who by now is into me for over $90,000, and that number continues to climb.

(Aside: Currently, this is the state of things -- Patrick Ross has been told to appear in a Calgary court on Tuesday, March 6. And he apparently has a very bizarre idea of what will happen there, as you can read below.)

Patrick Ross continues to be elusive, apparently simply because he is such a vacuous, unaccomplished nobody that he's never really left his mark anywhere, and probably just drifts from one frat brother's basement to another, slamming back Coors Light and shrieking at the television whenever professional wrestling comes on.

In any event, since all of the sordid details of this case have been covered in earlier posts, I'm going to keep it short, and tell you everything I can about Patrick Ross, and you will in turn drop me an e-mail at canadiancynic@yahoo.ca and tell me where he lives. Yeah, that's how it's going to play out.

So without further ado, what we think we know about Patrick Ross:

And, finally, here's an undated photo of Patrick Ross, accompanied by someone I can only guess is his date:

Getting an actual residence address for Patrick Ross would be splendid, but even if you don't know that, there are a few things that would be useful to know:

  • Is Patrick Ross still a student at the University of Alberta? Have you seen him around there recently? Where? (His Facebook page suggests he goes to the gym regularly. The campus gym?)

  • If he is still a student, what is his field of study? What year is he in? What courses is he taking?

  • Is he a member of any organization that meets on a regular basis at which he can be served legally?

  • Do you know what he does for a living? Does he currently have a job? Where?

I think you get the idea. Even if you can't pinpoint Patrick Ross for us, the more we know about him, the better. And feel free to check back here on a regular basis over the next couple of weeks. As I get more information, I'll post it here to help you along.

P.S. I just got off the phone with a private investigator who's ready and willing to smoke Patrick Ross out of whatever spidey hole he's hiding in. But I figure I'll take a few days and crowdsource this first to see what happens. Don't let me down.

UPPITY DATE: In a recent comment on his own blog, fugitive Patrick Ross seems to suggest he is totally ready for his court date in Calgary on March 6:

However, it's not at all clear he knows what he should be preparing for. Patrick appears to be under the delusion that he will, in some bizarre way, be given free rein to expound on my general badness as a person, or something equally baffling.

This would be a mistake.

As you can probably read from the linked-to legal documents above, Patrick Ross is being ordered to appear because he's been ignoring properly-served legal documents for some months now. And if he thinks this upcoming court date is his opportunity to get up on a soapbox and wax indignant over the way he thinks he's been treated, I suspect he is in for a very unpleasant time. But that's just a guess.

P.P.S. If you know Patrick Ross personally and happen to run into him in the next few days, you should tell him that he really needs to get a lawyer. A good deal of Patrick's current trouble stems from the fact that he believed he could handle all of this on his own (being the self-taught legal beagle that he thinks he is), and we can see just where that got him.

So if you bump into Patrick, for the love of God, advise him that he needs help. In more ways than one.
