MINNEAPOLIS (WTAQ) - An attorney has been suspended for at least nine months, after she filed legal documents containing anti-Catholic slurs in a case involving a group from Wisconsin.
The Minnesota Supreme Court has indefinitely suspended Rebekah Nett, and allowed her to file for reinstatement after nine months. That's longer than the six-month suspension recommended by a special referee back in January.
The referee, retired Judge Charles Flinn, said all allegations against Nett involved just one client -- the Samanta Roy Institute of Science and Technology in Shawano.
In 2011, Nett filed bankruptcy documents in which she called Judge Nancy Dreher a "black-robed bigot" and a "Catholic Knight witch hunter." Nett said it was all part of a conspiracy to deny justice to the CEO of the Shawano group.
Nett also accused the judge and other court officials of conspiring with the Vatican to destroy the Samanta Roy group, which some call a cult. Nett grew up in the organization.
