Fourth of a series
A hysterical female called in at the newspaper first thing Monday morning, complaining that all the articles we have been printing were lies and threatening to sue the newspaper for slander.
After great effort we finally learned that the caller was none other than Margaret Holper, the wife of attorney Scott Holper, the same wife that had filed restraining orders against her husband.
We tried to explain to her that every piece we have printed had come from court documents and we have not elaborated on any of them; just read them and commented on them.
The main reason for our special series on how the courts, the State Bar and attorneys are all in cahoots is because we believe that in many instances the public is the one that is on the losing end and none of those offices do anything to help the person in need.
Las Vegas Tribune is in possession of a District Court Family Division
filed on 03-05-2012 at 01:28:21PM by the Clerk of the Court where applicant Margaret Aranowski applied for “A temporary and/or extended order for protection against domestic violence naming Scott Michael Holper as the Adverse Party, but the hysterical lady at the other end of the telephone line claimed that the newspaper was wrong and she is planning to sue in court.
Las Vegas Tribune is also in possession of a document of Las Vegas Township Justice Court where it shows that Scott Holper’s former landlord, Peter Lorenz, applied for an order of protection against Holper after “repeated threats and intimidation” and a “past assault on our contractor, agents and associates.”
Officers with Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department had responded to service calls at 319 South 3rd Street where attorney Holper once was a tenant; the building is owned by Mrs. Dotty Turner from California, represented by Peter Lorenz.
Las Vegas Tribune is in possession of an online review by one of the attorneys for Scott Holper, where the former client posted among other things, “Based on his performance (or lack thereof), my opinion is that Mr. Holper would serve well as poster boy for sleazy lawyers.”
Las Vegas Tribune is also in possession of another order of protection by another attorney against Scott Holper in Justice Court for him and for one of his employees because they fear for their life.
Las Vegas Tribune is also in possession of another order of protection against attorney Scott Holper that was filed by a former employee stating that he is the “whistleblower in a case with the Nevada State Bar against Scott Holper”; in the affidavit the former employee stated that Holper had stated to several people that “when he sees me he is
going to crack my (expletive) head open”; and the statement also mentioned that Holper has called the former employee’s new employer with threats as well.
In the application for an order of protection in Justice Court, it is asked if the adverse party has a history of physical violence; the former employee responded that Holper “beat up his wife.” Another of the questions asked is if the adverse party has a history of violence with a weapon, and he answered that he “pulled a shotgun on his wife,” but Margaret Aranowski, who claims to be Scott Holper’s wife, said that the articles that appeared in the Las Vegas Tribune in the last few weeks are hurting their law practice and are all lies.
The former employee also responded that the adverse party is bipolar and is a pill-abuser while requesting that the court order Scott Holper not to be allowed to say anything to him or have anyone approach him at the RJC (Regional Justice Center).
Next week we will produce all the evidence we have on incident reports with the Henderson Police, protection orders, and any other paperwork the newspaper has gathered for this special report on the Nevada State Bar, Attorney Scott Holper, and now this Margaret Aranowski, who claims to be Holper’s wife and who claims that the Las Vegas Tribune is lying and has hysterically threatened the person who answered the
telephone at the newspaper’s downtown office.
