Thompson, Hart not bankrupt


Let me quote from the Dec. 1 Spokesman-Reveiw Phil Hart article: “Federal authorities have called the transfer of the home to the trust a ‘fraudulent’ transaction with a ‘sham entity.’ ”

If the feds can find this a fraudulent transaction, how is it that Karl Thompson Jr. can transfer his home to his wife, gain a divorce, continue to live with her, and then stick the taxpayers with the bill for his defense because he is bankrupt? Both were federal cases.

Seems to me that not only is there no justice, but neither is there consistency in our courts or the application of the law.
