Lawyer connected to Shawano cult has WI law license suspended for anti-Catholic tirade against judges

A lawyer and corporate manager for a controversial religious sect based near Shawano has been barred from practicing law in Wisconsin for a year, in part for publicly smearing federal court officers as "a bunch of ignoramus, bigoted Catholic beasts that carry the sword of the church."

Naomi Isaacson was a lawyer and CEO of the Dr. R.C. Samanta Roy Institute of Science and Technology. The religious sect known as "SIST," based in Wescott, made news in 2008 for having allegedly compiled a list of 60 Shawano area residents that were "potential victims of an implied threat," according to Shawano police.

The institute, which also has been identified as The Disciples of the Lord Jesus, has operated since the 1970s in the Shawano area, where it owned motels, gas stations and a go-cart track. The FBI in 2009 investigated the "implied threat" list, but no charges were brought.

Isaacson had her law license suspended this week for conduct that "displayed an utter disregard and disrespect for the integrity of the courts and their judges in a brazen and outrageous fashion," according to the Wisconsin Supreme Court's Office of Lawyer Regulation.

In some of the court actions in which she was involved, Isaacson called Shawano a "Neo-Nazi territory" and accused former Mayor Lorna Marquardt of having undue influence on the local and federal court systems, court records say. Marquardt was reportedly one of the 60 people on the 2008 "implied threat" list.

It's been a while but this does ring a bell.

An earlier report said when she went into custody for issuing threats:
SIST attorney Alan Eisenberg said Naomi was being starved and mistreated. He says she’s a practicing Orthodox Jew but was being refused Kosher foods.
It sounds like the group is of the radical Fundamentalist variety and isn't capable of making a distinction between the Mosaic Law and the Law of Christ(Old Law vs New Law).

Further background
Although Isaacson spent 3-1/2 years working as a law clerk for a Hennepin County district judge, her 16-page filing Tuesday lacked the characteristics of a legal document. It is unsigned and unsworn, and its cover page doesn't list the name of the case or case number.

The document says it is "From the Desk of C.E.O. Naomi Isaacson, J.D.," and the first 2-1/2 pages are typed in all capital letters. She accused Dreher of holding a "secret illegal hearing" and said the court "is an arm of the church to force the minority to be converted or face the consequences just like during the Dark and Middle Ages."

She called one trustee "Grand Inquisitor" and referred to the attorney representing the U.S. Trustee Program as a "Papal Drummer."
