I'll keep this short as I'm in the midst of a busy week so let's cut to the chase and address the latest nonsensical application from Lloydminster's Patrick Ross in his ludicrous defamation action against Peter Skinner.
While Patrick argues that, even as an undischarged bankrupt without a trustee, he still has the right to file this action, what he continually avoids is the issue of surety -- that he will almost certainly be required to pony up an assload of cash to prosecute this action.
The matter of surety is quite independent of Patrick's standing to sue, and given Patrick's long and well-documented history of refusing to obey court orders and refusing to pay cost awards, to the point where I was forced to initiate collection proceedings against him and even start garnishment proceedings to collect the $100K+ that he owes me, the probability is overwhelming that the Court will insist that Patrick front a lot of cash before this action is allowed to proceed.
Even worse, once that happens and if Patrick does somehow come up with the money, I can assure you I will be there to demand to know where it came from and why he did not turn it over to me.
All of this promises to be interesting. That is all.
