Fresno Feds Score Guilty Verdict Against Crackpot Who Harassed Two Bankruptcy Judges By Filing Bogus Liens On Their Personal Property

From the Office of the U.S. Attorney (Fresno, California):
  • After a one-day bench trial, Barry Halajian, 56, of Fresno, was found guilty of two counts of filing false liens on federal bankruptcy judges, United States Attorney Benjamin B. Wagner announced.
    ***

    According to court documents and evidence presented at trial, in 2010, Halajian initiated a Chapter 7 bankruptcy proceeding in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Fresno. Two years later, he initiated a Chapter 9 bankruptcy proceeding in the same court. On June 29, 2012, the Chapter 9 bankruptcy was dismissed. On July 17, 2012, Halajian filed with the California Secretary of State a series of liens on the personal property of two federal bankruptcy judges in the Eastern District of California, listing them as debtors and himself as the secured party

    “Filing bogus liens against federal officials for purposes of harassment is a crime,” said U.S. Attorney Wagner. “Those who commit it are asking to be prosecuted.”
