Paul Hansmeier is an attorney. He had me served me with a complaint in
August of 2013. It was the only contact I had received from him or his client,
Eric Wong, so I did an Internet search for his name.
I found a lot of information about Mr. Hansmeier, and I also found that he had not
a domain name, so I registered it, thinking he might want it later.
What I did find was startling. Mr. Hansmeier seems to have a wide variety
of interests. Pornography, piracy, coupons, disabled Americans, and
that appeared in the Minneapolis Tribune.
He has worked in California, Illinois, and Minnesota, at least. His main
effort appears to be with
Pendra was eventually sanctioned by a California judge, who fined Prenda. Perhaps some
of Mr Hansmeier's legal settlements are going to pay past fines.
In my case, I was served by an organization called
seems to be Mr. Hansmeier and perhaps some employees. The Secretary of State lists it as an LLC,
not a non-profit.
When he eventually filed my case, he did it quickly, without the required
notice, giving me just two
days to prepare. I filed an answer for myself and for two of my tenants.
He filed the case in state court, as he has done with some others. Some
have been moved to Federal court.
In the first hearing,
Judge Mel Dickstein
held a brief hearing and informed me that I could not represent my tenants,
so I hired Patrick Downing, an attorney. Patrick's telephone number is
952 807 8652.
The Minnesota Attorney General's office is investigating Mr. Hansmeier.
I received a call from Jacob Kraus. His telephone is 651 757 1454.
