Mike Postle Still Fighting to Dismiss Bankruptcy Motion
05 Oct

Mike Postle is continuing his fight to prevent a bankruptcy order becoming a reality as Veronica Brill and Todd Witteles push to recoup their legal fees spent on the case. Postle owes the pair around $55,000 and has so far pulled every trick in the book to dodge paying out.


Last week Veronica Brill and Todd Witteles both filed formal oppositions to Postles attempt to have the case thrown out. He had been granted until mid-September to file his official response, which reads as nothing more than an unhinged attack on Brill’s attorney, Marc Randazza.

The first seven pages of the filing highlight just how obsessed Postle has become with Randazza, while completely ignoring the attorney of Witteles, Eric Bensamochan.

“Mr. Randazza has exhibited incredibly unprofessional and unethical behavior and is using the bankruptcy as a personal vendetta weapon against me. He has attempted to use the bankruptcy proceeding to shame me publicly and place his debt as superior over my other minimum 15 unrelated, legitimate creditors.”
This latest application to the court included Postle pining, almost begging the court to feel sympathy for him, and also revealed the extent of his debts. An eye-watering total of $62,000 worth of consumer credit, and another $18,000 for his vehicle. Not what you’d expect from somebody claiming to be a successful poker player.

“I am a professional poker player of some repute and have been for over seventeen years. This is a career that I love and has allowed me to support my ten-year-old daughter, of whom I have custody.”
He added that for Brill and Witteles to file a bankruptcy petition only 36 days after they won that hearing is ridiculous and makes a “mockery of the bankruptcy system”.

No Sympathy

Eric Bensamochan fired back in as clear a way as possible, insisting that his client, Todd Witteles, is entitled to force Mike Postle to pay his debt to him.

“...tried to abuse the legal system for his own selfish ends and now that he is facing the consequences of that decision, he is portraying himself as a poor, innocent victim.”
Alex Sheppard of Randazza Legal Group went a step further and really stuck the knife in, publicly humiliating Postle for his many alleged transgressions.

“It is true that Mr. Randazza does not like Postle. Postle cheats at cards, has battered his ex-wife, and seems fixated on Mr. Randazza rather than his own actions. Nevertheless, unless directly working on this case, Mr. Randazza can barely recall Postle’s name. Mr. Randazza resides rent free in Postle’s head, not vice versa.”
The case will resume in a Sacramento court next week, when we will possibly see this lawsuit all but wrapped up and Mike Postle finally put in his place.
