Kevin Trudeau just pissed off the wrong judge

I’ve blogged about Trudeau before. He’s the professional murderer who used to sell bogus medical cures “they don’t want you to know” until he was legally barred from selling any such products and so has moved onto a whole new set of non-medical-related scams. Well also he’s responsible for inciting a legion of fans to email bomb U.S. District Judge Robert Gettleman, who had previously forced Trudeau to cough up more money in court.

Word of advice to Kevin:  never piss off a federal judge.

A furious U.S. District Judge Robert Gettleman gave Trudeau three hours’ notice to show up in his federal courtroom Thursday and then found the Internet host in criminal contempt of court for the e-mail attack.

Trudeau sat with a bit of a deer-in-the-headlights look on his face as the normally mild-mannered Gettleman lectured his lawyer about the e-mail onslaught — all the while being interrupted on the bench as new messages continued to hit his inbox.

“Just got another one,” said the judge, who earlier had turned his computer screen so attorneys in the case could see the incoming barrage for themselves. “Every time you hear that little bell.”

Now Trudeau can add a contempt of court charge to his rap sheet:

Gettleman ordered Trudeau to turn over his passport, pay $50,000 bond and warned he could face future prison time.

Gettleman, on his own authority, can sentence Trudeau to up to six months in prison. In addition, the judge referred the matter and the emails to the U.S. Marshals Service, which investigates threats to judiciary.

Couldn’t happen to a more deserving individual.
