, The Connecticut Law Tribune

I owe some guy $2 million. At least that was the bill he served on me at the Office of Chief Disciplinary Counsel. He is one of those "sovereign citizens" you may have heard about. These folks have a really unique take on almost all of our law. One thing they do is copyright their names. So if you send them a letter addressed to their name, you owe them for copyright infringement. At least I think that I how I ran up such a bill. Luckily, they never filed one of their patented "constitutional liens" against my home. Some judges and prosecutors have tens of millions of dollars' worth of liens filed against them. Makes selling the house a bit tricky.
