We checked Judge Rosemary Collyer’s docket in the AdSurfDaily case several times yesterday. The most recent entry was the Dec. 3 denial of “Leave to File” directed at an unnamed party. The party who was denied had attempted to file a motion to void judgment.
On Nov. 20, Judge Collyer issued a separate denial of “Leave to File,” this one directed at ASD member Curtis Richmond. Richmond attempted to file a motion to dismiss the ASD forfeiture case, according to the docket.
Richmond is associated with a Utah “Indian” tribe a judge ruled a sham and has a history of clashing with federal judges, prosecutors, law-enforcement agencies and others. It is unclear if Richmond was the party who attempted to file the motion to void judgment. The sham “Indian” tribe has filed similar motions in other cases, but Judge Collyer’s docket does not list a name in the Dec. 3 denial.
If you’re new to this site, we’ve been covering the civil-forfeiture case against money and property linked to AdSurfDaily Inc. and ASD President Andy Bowdoin. Federal prosecutors believe ASD, which deemed itself a professional advertising service, was a criminal enterprise running an autosurf Ponzi scheme. Federal agents seized about $100 million in August.
Separately, we still are in the process of porting this website. There may be occasional outages over the next few days. We made considerable progress yesterday, and fine-tuning will continue over the next several days.
One thing you might notice is that the site may not load properly at all times. This is because the domain is re-propagating. It is possible that such quirks may occur over the next five days or so.
