To 12:55PM ~~ Unless JP took a credit card for payment, that's NOT happening ;)

to put this in perspective Rahn is getting 70,000+ a year in pension and claims his expenses are 66,000 or so. He is not living in poverty

Filing bankruptcy must be hereditary for former Greece Police Chiefs. Phelan filed for bankruptcy too a few years back. AND he was President of the school board at the time in charge of a budget over $150 million. He ran up over a quarter of a million in credit card debt. I guess we as taxpayers don't give them enough pension money!

To 5:20PM ~~ I guess we as taxpayers don't give a damn who handles or how our school district budget gets (mis)managed. From the outside looking in, Greece taxpayers MUST appear to be morons.

Pretty sad how this guy was able to get his hands on 30 credit cards all these years and they ran them up to the end. How did the banks allow this? Don't they check people's credit any more? He owes federal and state taxes, all his legal bills. For all he as done to the town and the cost to the town tax payers. He should have installment payments made when he files chapter 11. He should keep paying into the pot till he is gone. Between the police Department. The school Board and our town Board along with Auberger. They Just keep taking out tax money and use it to their own advantages including their outings, lunches, dinners. The money never goes into what is important and everything they do and discuss is all in secret with our money. Look at the women who was an accountant for one of our hospita's and embezzled millions of dollars. Seems everyone who is involved with money any where their s sticky fingers. It happens every where. Rahn should be paying his money to some one and not allowed to clean his debt up. I dont care if it was paid to the Salvation Army. He made this mess and still getting his pension and he doesn't deserve it and we are paying it. He's getting paid for a job he never did honestly.

Methinks 10:49 must be a GCSD graduate (or dropout), huh?

Rahn is guilty of THEFT. there's no way he ever intended to pay back THIRTY credit cards!!

Certainly looks like Shakey Rahn is trying to follow in Phelon's footsteps, doesn't it.

My bet is Shakey don't get to make Chapter 7 fly, the law has changed and Credit Cards don't go away in Bankruptcy. Back taxes don't look like they will be discharged either. He might have a tough time keeping the house too. That probably explains why he hasn't reroofed or replaced the back door given that he used to claim he was a remodeling contractor on the side.

Going to be real rough for Shakey to swallow Phelon flying one he can't.

Gee, I hope he can afford to travel, last I knew Rochester Bankruptcy Court wasn't accepting filings for want of a Judge.
Maybe he can get a ride from his close pal Rick Antelli, they go way back.
I got a bicycle I'll loan him. I know I'll never see the bike again, but I don't use it anyhow.

any relation between this and the lawsuit

SCATS said...

To 5:56AM ~~ Good question.

Well gosh folks, who is the Bankruptcy lawyer Rahn is using? Is he connected with Iacavangelo?

Bet your ass somebody is picking up the tab for Rahn's Bankruptcy filing because if it goes forward the Oliva family either has to remove Rahn from their Complaint, or watch the filing go down the dumper.

Bankruptcy filings stop lawsuits DEAD in their tracks.

To 7/25/13 @ 5:56AM......I was wondering the same thing. Looks to me like Rahn and his lawyer knew this Federal lawsuit was going to be filed regarding the botched car accident and he filed bankruptcy right before this hit the news.

SCATS said...

To 12:34AM ~~ The Oliva's can still sue GPD, the Town, Auberger & Ball, right?

The town pays any award. All were working as agents of the town at the time of the incident. Unless they did something personally to cause the accident they are not personally liable

They can sue anyone they want. The fact is that the town is liable to pay any award. Rahn, Ball and Auberger are agents of the town and as such are still covered. The town is liable, not the individuals unless it can be shown that actions outside of their duties as agents of the town contributed to her death (not likely).
