Red Herring Alert

There's something fishy going on!

Millionaire Seeks Court Filing Fees from Homeless, Destitute Ex-Wife

The latest on the #grazzinirucki case from Michael Volpe and PPJ Gazette…

 

That David Rucki would file a motion to compel homeless, destitute ex-wife, Sandra Grazzini-Rucki, to pay for his own court costs in legal proceedings that have destroyed her life.. is the same as charging for the nail he is driving into her coffin.

This is no different than what Saddam Hussein would do to his victims.. shoot them dead and then charge the family for the bullet.

Though the court has ruled Sandra Grazzini-Rucki too poor to pay for her own filings, her ex-husband’s attorney thinks she should pay for his.

The latest from journalist Michael Volpe…

 

Lisa Elliott, the long-time attorney for David Rucki, filed a notice for a taxation of costs- meaning she wants the other side to pay for the costs of filing- with the appeals court.

In her response, Grazzini-Rucki’s attorney, Michelle MacDonald explained to the court that her client is a pauper.

Appellant, Sandra Sue Grazzini-Rucki, hereby objects to the taxation of costs and disbursements dated September 1, 2017,” MacDonald said in her response, “on the ground that: Appellant was granted informa pauperis status and is a pauper.”

By granting Grazzini-Rucki informa pauperis status the court has deemed Grazzini-Rucki too poor to afford to pay for her own filing fees and they are thereby waived; but that hasn’t stopped Elliott from demanding she pay for her client’s filing fees.

David Rucki

MacDonald, after receiving a $5,000 retainer in early 2013, has been working on Grazzini-Rucki’s custody case pro-bono; she was once forced to conduct part of a custody trial while handcuffed to a wheelchair.

The latest filing follows a similar filing by Elliott in late August asking the court which handled her client’s divorce to order Grazzini-Rucki to pay for all the filing fees- in excess of $3,000- she accrued in that court.

The series of events defy logic.

Late last month, the same appeals court upheld a previous ruling by Judge Maria Pastoor which ordered Grazzini-Rucki to pay her ex-husband nearly $1,000 in child support.

That appeal’s decision was authored by Judge Jill Flaskamps Halbrooks.

David Rucki is a multi-millionaire who received 100% of the marital estate- which included a business, four homes, and nine classic cars- by an order of Judge David Knutson despite the standard in all divorce that distributions of marital estates be “equitable”.

While the court on one hand has recognized Grazzini-Rucki’s pauper status, the same court has ordered her to pay child support to a multi-millionaire even though she is homeless, penniless and jobless, rendered that way by the same court which is now ordering her to pay child support.

Lisa Elliott has refused to respond to repeated emails for comment.

Beau Berentson, public affairs officer for the Minnesota Courts, also did not respond to an email for comment.

One thought on “Millionaire Seeks Court Filing Fees from Homeless, Destitute Ex-Wife

  1. This is concerning, do people not see the ‘Warning Signs’ of a psychopath? Why do the courts in Dakota County not change venue? Or why does ‘x’s Attorney keep running into brick walls? How can they say Ms. Grazzini be party to the ‘flight of the two teens’ when the teens are considered eligible for ‘Extended Juvenile’ if and only if they had committed a crime. Technically if and only if they were runaways are they not liable for charges as well? How come this ‘y’ male who was a former spouse to ‘x’ gets a ‘out of jail free card’? Ms..’X’ has constitutional rights too, it is called ‘equal protection’ under the laws of the land; i.e. MN included. Psychological manipulation has been around for millenniums. The core principles underlying psychological manipulation involves–“”1) Concealing Aggressive Intentions And Behaviors. 2) Knowing The Vulnerabilities of the Target to Determine what Tactics are Likely to be the most Effective. 3) Having a Sufficient Level of Ruthlessness to have No Qualms About Causing Harm to the Target if Necessary. THE MANIPULATION IS USUALLY ACCOMPLISHED THROUGH COVERT AGGRESSIVE MEANS.”” Marcel Proust stated, “Unkindness is inspired by Hatred, Anger fuels it into action in which there is no great joy; it would take sadism to turn it into something pleasurable; unkind people imagine themselves to be inflicting pain on someone equally unkind.” (Valentin Louis Georges Eugène Marcel Proust (/pruːst/;[1] French: [maʁsɛl pʁust]; 10 July 1871 – 18 November 1922), known as Marcel Proust, was a French novelist, critic, and essayist best known for his monumental novel À la recherche du temps perdu (In Search of Lost Time; earlier rendered as Remembrance of Things Past), published in seven parts between 1913 and 1927. He is considered by critics and writers to be one of the most influential authors of the 20th century.) In this century, the term “Gaslighting.” In any event, they get away with covert or passive aggression. Other people may see the negative choices, but will not acknowledge. In fact to save face they will collude with them. This adds to the problem and there fore aggravate the issues, than follows the fall out on the Targeted Person. As a ‘WISE MAN SAID, “MONEY TALKS, BULLSHIT WALKS.” This saga has become a soap opera.
