The 10 Sins
1. HOPKINS ‘DEUS EX MACHINA MANEUVER’
“Deutsche Bank asks to reopen the trial record to provide “the wet ink original of the Note or testimony affirming Deutsche Bank’s status as holder of the Note.”
“No authority or excuse is offered for this breathtakingly late request.”
“The time for such a deus ex machina maneuver has long since passed.”
– Hon. Stephen Wm. Smith.
2. HOPKINS ‘NEW EVIDENCE’ SCHEME ALSO PERVADES PNC v. HOWARD. THE COURTS DID NOT BUY THE FRAUDULENCE
Hopkins lied in another foreclosure case, PNC v Howard, mirroring the unlawful acts in the Burkes Deutsche Bank Fraud case; claiming to have found new evidence – which the courts rejected as highly improbable.
On Sep 17, 2021 and while on remand from the Texas Supreme Court, the appellate court affirmed for the homeowners, John and Amy Howard. On Nov 1, 2021, Hopkins appealed, once again, to Texas Supreme Court.
3. HOPKINS ABHORRENT LIES AND ELDER ABUSE GOES UNPUNISHED
4. HOPKINS CAUGHT BEING UNTRUTHFUL ONCE MORE , ON APPEAL (19-20267, 5th CIR.) RE CONFERENCING WITH PLAINTIFFS
“Hopkins signed a Certificate of Conference which was willfully untruthful as he claimed to have reached out to the Burkes regarding his firm’s prepared motion and received no response. This is a lie.
Hopkins did not reach out to the Burkes. Furthermore, Hopkins offered no counter-defense nor answer to the Burkes motion. Hopkins remained silent as they had no legal defense. They were clearly guilty as charged.”
5. HOPKINS REPEATEDLY REFUSED TO RESPOND TO PLAINTIFFS REQUESTS TO CONFERENCE WHILE ON APPEAL
“Commencing the audit after the Burkes petition on Apr 13, 2021, the Burkes calculate they have submitted eight motions. That’s 8 filings with zero replies from Hopkins.” And this is not the first time Hopkins has lied about conferring.”
6. HOPKINS WOULD ISSUE MORE THREATS BASED ON FALSEHOODS: BEHAVIOR UNBECOMING OF LAWYERS AS OFFICERS OF THE COURT
“To the extent the Burkes continue to publish falsehoods (including accusing Defendants of crimes and doctoring personal photos of Defendants) on their website, twitter and other social media outlets, Attorney Defendants will counterclaim for libel.”
7. HOPKINS ADMITS TO PREMEDITATED DECEPTION BY WITHHOLDING EVIDENCE
8. HOPKINS SAYS HOMEOWNER WITHHOLDING EVIDENCE AND REMAINING SILENT IS “DISHONEST”
“Your honor we have this settlement agreement where the Rileys agreed to an uncontested foreclosure, our former counsel was unaware of the settlement agreement and the Rileys were dishonest and remained silent on the existent of this agreement. (paraphrased).”
– Mark Hopkins
