He attended law school at the University of North Dakota and just a few years later, Hoff had a degree in Law. Imagine.... John Hoff, being a lawyer. That is a scary thought!
Thankfully, Hoff moved to Minneapolis after graduating while hauling very little in the move. A few of the things he brought with him included an entire State (North Dakota) being pissed off at him for his antics and a pile of student loan debt. Student loans are not a concern to most graduating law students as they are about to join the ranks as a lawyer.
Hoff was about to become dangerous. After he left Seattle, he was interviewed by the SeattleWeekly and offered a peek at what he planned to do after law school.
"After law school, Hoff says, he's going to start a law firm—specializing in record law, lesbian issues, and international space law—and open offices in Grand Forks, Hollywood, and . . . Seattle. Then, he adds confidently, he will get a state legislative seat, then make the jump to the US Senate as the first Green libertarian."
Fast forward more than a decade and we find that John Hoff fell just a bit short with making good on his claims. Actually, Hoff fell flat on his face because, he failed to deliver any of those claims.
In 2013-'14, Hoff applied for, took and PASSED the Oklahoma Bar Exam. Thankfully, the Oklahoma Board of Bar Examiners took a close look at Hoff's past during a 2-day Rule 11 hearing before the board in Oklahoma City in August 2014. It took a few months for the board to make sure their ruling would hold but, in October, 2014 the board denied Hoff a law license and after a failed bid to appeal the ruling, Hoff found himself holding his ass in his hands after the Oklahoma Bar Examiners handed it to him.
Here is what the Oklahoma Board concluded regarding Hoff's student loan debt:
Fast forward one year and we have been blessed in a way because, John Hoff has slowed his blogging activities to a crawl. He has said that the blog is retired but, people know that the temptation to use his beloved blog to self-promote and/or bash someone will simply be too tempting for him to lay off completely.
I was one of seven witnesses to testify for the Oklahoma Board of Bar Examiners at the Rule 11 hearing for John Hoff, held in August, 2014.
I was the only witness of the seven who appeared in person and the next post on this blog will be a review of my testimony as well as opinions and observations I made at the hearing.
It will be good stuff!
