US Bankruptcy Judge Shelley Chapman of New York City, Moron 


The state of New York presented Shelley Clauson Chapman with a law license in 1984 after she graduated from Harvard University Law School.


The judges sitting on the Second Circuit Court of Appeals appointed Shelly as judge on the bankruptcy court in New York City in March 2010. Shelly didn’t receive the appointment because she was the most qualified attorney in New York City. She received it because she had proven to be a reliable lackey and/or bootlicker for the local political hacks.


In one matter, Judge Chapman was assigned to preside over the case of Katherine Barnet vs. Drawbridge Special Opportunities Fund LP.


During the pendency of the case, Chapman ignorantly granted recognition of a foreign main proceeding. 11 U.S.C. 109(a) states:

  • “Notwithstanding any other provision of this section, only a person that resides or has a domicile, a place of business, or property in the United States, or a municipality, may be a debtor under this title." The court vacated and remanded, finding that section 109(a) applies to the debtor in a foreign main proceeding under Chapter 15 of the Bankruptcy Code.”

Despite the plain language in aforementioned law, Shelley the Moron ruled in direct opposition to U.S. law.


Of course Shelley the Moron doesn’t care how many times his foolish decisions are reversed or how much it costs the taxpayers because he can’t be removed from the bench for being a Certified Moron.


As we speak, (ca. October 2015) Shelley continues to sit as a bankruptcy court judge in Manhattan, New York.
