Thomas Carruthers Attacked By Rabid Dogs, Part 5

In Thomas Carruthers Attacked By Rabid Dogs, Part 4 I invited Mr Carruthers to e-mail me as to the concerns I've pointed out thus far in my series Thomas Carruthers Attacked By Rabid Dogs. After all, I do make mistakes.

I'm still waiting to hear back from Mr Carruthers.

There could be a perfectly reasonable explanation for how he was able to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in March of 2005, $677,222.oo in debt, file his Intent to Abandon Property on August 1, 2005 and close on a new house on December 14, 2005 despite the fact that most people need 2 years or more, often as many as 10 years to buy a home after a bankruptcy. But Mr Carruthers, the City Attorney for the City of Greensboro-- a direct employee of Mayor Nancy Barakat Vaughan and the Greensboro City Council-- never explained what that reason was.

Tom Carruthers walked out on $677,222.oo in debt, Much of it to people like my aunt Dorothy who hired Mr Carruthers to represent her in a civil matter then failed to do so just as he failed to do  all the others listed as discharged and prohibited from collecting the debts owed by Mr Carruthers.

Interestingly enough, our Mayor's husband, Donald Vaughan, was sued for failing to represent a client after taking his money.

And former Greensboro Mayor, City Councilwoman Yvonne Johnson's husband Walter Johnson lost his license to practice law after repeatedly taking clients' money and not representing them in court.

But you know what just doesn't make sense to me? After Thomas Carruthers walked out on all that debt to all those innocent people like my Aunt Dorothy who hired him as an attorney to represent them on civil matters Tom Carruthers filed for bankruptcy in March of 2005, bought a new home on December 14,2005 and officially filed the Trustee's Final Account And Request For Final Decree on April 16, 2008.

 How do you buy a new home while still in a bankruptcy proceeding and still owing hundreds of thousands of dollars to innocent victims of your fraud? And how do you live with running out on all those people who counted on you?

My e-mail hasn't changed, Mr Carruthers, there's still time to e-mail me before Thomas Carruthers Attacked By Rabid Dogs, Part 6. But not much time as I'll already be typing it and setting it to autopost before you read this. You know, in case something happens to me.
