Don't get us wrong. We know where our bread is buttered. But, that said, there seems to be a lot of piling on going on. For instance:
George Griffith of the trustee's office said Dykstra signed a "real property questionnaire under penalty of perjury," claiming insurance on the mansion did not expire until December. But the court filing says that on the very day Dykstra signed the document, July 14, the insurance was cancelled "for failure to pay."
"Undoubtedly, the debtor had received prior notices that the insurance would be cancelled if the premium was not paid," the filing said, calling Dykstra's actions "dishonest."
Perhaps we're just being difficult, but it occurs to us that the policy "expiring" is not at all the same as the policy laboring under the constant risk of termination for non-payment. Of course, we only have CNBC doing translation for us here, so it is hard to tell, but when you are digging through the semantics in this kind of disclosure to try and force a Chapter 7 liquidation, you really are scraping the bottom of the barrel.
Sure, we suppose it is possible that what Lenny really penned on pain of perjury was more along the lines of "...and furthermore, there are absolutely no issues that might threaten, or cause outright, a lapse of insurance coverage at any time during the bankruptcy process...." That seems... thin.
