MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A judge has ordered the arrest of a Minnesota attorney who has made repeated anti-Catholic slurs in court filings.

U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Nancy Dreher held Naomi Isaacson in contempt for failing to appear at a hearing Wednesday in Minneapolis about whether Issacson should be sanctioned for the filings.

The judge also ordered Issacson and fellow attorney Rebekah Nett to pay $5,000 apiece in penalties for what she called “unsupported and outrageous allegations of bigotry, deceit, conspiracy and scandalous statements against this court.”

The filing came in November in a long-running bankruptcy case involving a subsidiary of a Shawano, Wis.-based religious group, the Dr. R.C. Samanta Roy Institute of Science and Technology.

The two women represent the group and their filings seem to reflect the group’s anti-Catholic views.
