Monk telecommutes to bankruptcy hearing

A Cedar Rapids monk plans on telecommuting to his bankruptcy hearing, where he hopes to challenge the sale of Buchanan Abbey’s assets. The man, the abbey’s former head, is in Illinois and cannot leave the state due to criminal charges he is facing there.

After the monk failed to attend his initial hearing, the presiding judge, Paul Kilburg, suggested that he participate by phone from Illinois. He concluded the case could carry on in this manner because modern technology has reached a point where it is powerful enough to allow it.

The other parties involved with the case will present evidence in person in the courtroom.
