Dee Burgin – Redwood Law firm once again smokes Burgin’s attempt to stay case against him. Bankruptcy case fails to stop civil case against him

Edgar Co. (ECWd) –

Edgar County Deputy Dee Burgin has once again lost in an attempt to stay the civil rights case against him in Federal Court.  Redwood Law firm, the same firm that proved he violated a  woman’s civil rights in 2012, has once again prevailed with their legal brief as to why no stay should be issued just because Burgin filed Bankruptcy.

For the reasons set out below, the Court finds that Defendant Burgin’s Chapter 13 Bankruptcy does not trigger an automatic stay of this action.

“Accordingly, for the reasons stated in this Order, the Court finds that Defendant Burgin’s Suggestion of Bankruptcy (#22) does not operate as a stay to this civil action. This case will proceed under the discovery schedule set during the May 9, 2017, Rule 16 Scheduling Conference. This case remains set for a Status Conference on October 20, 2017 at 10:00 A.M.

ENTERED this 4th day of October 2017.

At some point in the future, we can only pray that the County wakes up and stops defending the actions of this Deputy who has cost the county thousands in legal and insurance claims.

Bankrupcty stay failed!

      Your bad decisions Eddie cost the county more than Dee ever will.

        I think his only bad decision was not to appeal the circuit court’s decision to the Appellate Court.
        Yeah, everything in his hiring was done wrong, but “due to the passage of time” he can remain on the county payrolls…
        What a joke that court decision was.
        Please elaborate on which decisions Ed made that cost the county money? I don’t think you will find any…
