Tommy Robinson remains free

David Koon ambled over to the bankruptcy court today to see if former sheriff and congressman Tommy Robinson (that's him above in his brash days as Pulaski County's high sheriff and Keystone Kop) would get tossed in jail as opponents in his interminable bankruptcy had hoped. No luck. David's report:

No trip to the roundbar hotel this weekend for  Tommy Robinson -- but stay tuned.

Representing himself In court before federal bankruptcy judge James Mixon, Robinson faced creditors (mostly from farming operations in the Brinkley area) who had asked that Robinson be jailed until  he filed an affidavit stating that he wouldn't file any more lawsuits against his creditors -- a tactic Mixon called frivolous and "bullying." Robinson has also stated a desire to file complaints  against both the opposing counsel and Judge Mixon, which Mixon said  was within his rights.

While refusing to find Robinson in contempt in order to get him to sign the affidavit, Mixson did say that he believed Robinson is in contempt of his original order to "not interfere with the administration of the estate."  Mixon said the hearing on the order to show cause why he was not in contempt would be held in 30 days, and  advised Robinson to seek legal counsel.

"You've just got to stop filing this same lawsuit," Mixon told  Robinson. "It's over. You lost."
