Judge recommends suspension for SIST attorney who made anti-Catholic slurs


ST. PAUL, MN (WTAQ) - A special referee has recommended a six month suspension for a Minnesota attorney who filed legal documents with anti-Catholic slurs in a case involving a Shawano group.

Retired St. Paul Judge Charles Flinn asked the Minnesota Supreme Court for the ban against 37-year-old Rebekah Nett of Hastings.

Flinn said she failed to attend her own disciplinary hearing in the matter – and she showed no remorse for what she did, even though she was fined $10,000 for misconduct. But Flinn also noted that Nett has never been disciplined in her law practice before – and all the allegations involved just one client, the Samanta Roy Institute of Science and Technology in Shawano.

In a Minnesota case involving the group, Nett wrote a number of comments that have been questioned – including one that called a judge a “black robed bigot” and part of a Catholic conspiracy to deny justice to the Shawano group’s CEO.

Nett accused the judge and other court officials of being part of a conspiracy by the Vatican to destroy the Samanta Roy group, which some call a cult. Nett grew up in the organization.
