Invested as a silent partner, Dixie Burkhart became part of a group planning to buy KILJ radio via MediaComm Inc. After one of the partners was discovered embezzling from the company, Burkhart’s role became more involved as she fought to protect her assets as well as her reputation.
Facts Don’t Matter is a cautionary tale of what can go wrong in business. The best of planning, the best of council, the best of corporate documents, the best of everything can be to no avail.
By the abuse of judicial discretion, the judge violated her right to a fair and impartial trial.
In order to reach the outcome she wanted, the facts were ignored and she refused to rule on laws that were violated. Under the guise of judicial discretion the judge’s erroneous opinion was nothing less than court assisted business fraud. When we allow our judges to ignore the facts in evidence and the law, to make rulings by opinion, it opens the door for political favor and judicial corruption. When a judge’s opinion defies common sense and the law, one can only wonder what motivated that opinion.
