Investigative Blogger Crystal Cox was not the first one to allege Tax Issues, nor to allege foul play. Crystal Cox reported on insider emails with the DOJ on these matters, on court filings and documents, information from that time.
Here are a few Research Links, This information was online for YEAR, before David Aman, Tonkon Torp attorney INVOLVED in the SUMMIT Bankruptcy SUED Blogger Crystal Cox on behalf of Bankrupty Trustee Kevin Padrick and his Financial Company Obsidian Finance Group.
Blogger Crystal Cox brought over 500 pages of proof of the source for ONE Blog Post, and it was thrown out by Judge Hernandez protecting Judge Michal Simon, Hernandes called it hearay, here are those documents
David Brown, Obsidian Finance Principal Testimony
Crystal Cox still CLAIMS that Oregon Attorney Kevin Padrick is a THUG, a Thief and has violated Tax Code and Bankruptcy regarding his actions in the Summit Bankruptcy.
One of the elements of the Summit Bankruptcy Judicial Proceeding was a complaint called Objection to the Fees ( a Judicial Proceeding) filed by the Summit Insiders, it included internal emails stating that the appointment of a Trustee was bad for creditors. That Susan Ford, Sussman Shank Email is Below.

Here is emails with Creditor Attorney Robert Opera and David Aman, Attorney for the Plaintiff in Obsidian Vs. Cox and Attorney for Obsidian Finance Group, Kevin Padrick in the Summit Bankruptcy.
Doesn't it seem odd that a Federal Judge Would play so ignorant and say that Oregon's BIGGEST Bankruptcy Ever, and one of the Biggest 1031 Exchange Companies to ever go bankruptcy, was NOT of Public Interest.
They all acted as If I was the only one in the world with an issue, when that was simply a Flat OUT Lie. I was a Blogger Getting the Story Heard.
Their Corrupt Lies, Accusations and Rulings were attempts to SILENCE information, and to Stop Me, investigative blogger Crystal Cox from Exposing them all. The Judgement did not stop me. I am still EXPOSING them and dedicated to doing so.
The Summit Bankruptcy was HIGHLY Public, there was massive media and controversy over the Summit Bankruptcy. Judge Marco Hernandez knew full well that this was Of Public Concern, Judge Marco Hernandez is connected to Judge Michael Simon who was one of the Creditors Attorneys involved in the Summit Bankruptcy. Judge Marco Hernandez illegally, repeatedly refused to sign a Conflict of Interest Disclosure in Obsidian V. Cox.
Perkins Coie was the Creditors Attorneys. Steven Hedberg, main attorney used to work In fact for Kevin Padrick at Miller Nash Law Firm. Michael Simon was involved in a VERY Big, Very Public Part that even was named in SEC Filings, this was the Umpqua Bank Lawsuits. Here are a few links for Eric P. Robinson, seeings how he cannot research this on his own.
Umpqua Bank Lawsuits (Seriously, Do You Believe this was NOT of Public Interest or Concern, Judge Marco Hernandez was Protecting them, DUH )
"Both Kevin Padrick, the court-appointed trustee for Summit's 2008 U.S. Bankruptcy Court filing, and Michael Simon, the attorney for some of Summit's creditors, told the Bend newspaper they were barred from discussing the settlement."
Kevin Padrick, Obsidian Finance Group has Been Highly Public for Years, to Name a Few
Kevin Padrick got the very lucrative Trustee Job from past connections with Leon Simson now of Tonkon Torp Law Firm, Pamela Griffith now Department of Justice Trustee that was supposed to oversee the Summit Bankruptcy, and his connection to Steven Hedberg who use to work for Kevin Padrick at Miller Nash.
A Few Research Links on these Connections

Accusations of Securities Fraud ( Of Public Interest)
Also Note at the Link Above "Enron Corp. is the mother of all examples of a client dragging its lawyers or accountants down with the ship — in this case the now defunct accounting firm Arthur Andersen." Enron and Arthur Anderson were involved in the 13 Trillion Dollar Technology Theft of the iViewit Technology. Tonkon Torp Represented Enron and wanted to silence me as I was and am exposing ALL involved in the Stolen iViewit Technology. In Document 136 and 137 of Obsidian V. Cox, David Aman Tonkon Torp added Eliot Bernstein as a Defendant to Obsidian V. Cox in order to intimidate him and to suppress blogs exposing the iViewit Scandal. Also Note that their Star Witness "Gary Stachlowski of PNW Tax Advisors" is Formerly of Arthur Anderson.
