Minnesota lawyer faces sanctions for anti-Catholic outbursts
January 11, 2013
A Minnesota lawyer faces possible professional sanctions for her record of anti-Catholic outbursts.
A retired judge, acting as a special referee in the case, has recommended that Rebekah Nett be suspended for 6 months from the practice of law, because of unprofessional conduct. The recommendation will be weighed by the state’s Supreme Court.
Nett is the lawyer for and board member of the Dr. R.C. Samanta Roy Institute of Science and Technology, an anti-Catholic group which critics identify as a religious cult. In courtroom arguments Nett has accused a judge of being a “Catholic Knight Witch Hunter” engaged in a Vatican-approved conspiracy to destroy the organization.
