Instead, look at this lottery winner:
"Tetzlaff currently owes approximately $260,000 in student loan debt...I don't understand why this man is unemployed. He otherwise fits the profile of a models 'n' bottles life.
"Tetzlaff is fifty-six years old and lives [XX] with his eighty-five-year-old mother; they both subsist on the income from her Social Security payments. Tetzlaff is divorced, has no children, and is currently unemployed. From the mid-1990s until 2005, Tetzlaff pursued a Masters in Business Administration from Marquette University, as well as a law degree from Florida Coastal School of Law ("Florida Coastal").
The wisdom of the 7th Circuit agrees:
Given Tetzlaff’s academic degrees, prior work experience, and age, we agree with the bankruptcy court that he is capa-ble of earning a living. (In fact, Tetzlaff’s capable pro se rep-resentation in this case is, in our opinion, an indicator of his marketable job skills.)Are you not entertained by systematized Catch-22s?! [would a graduate of a finer law school have known to sandbag it?] I wonder when Judge Flaum will be offering Teztlaff a job in chambers; I'm sure it's any day now.
It's not just marketing puffery that a 56-year old Florida Coastal grad should be able to have a remunerative legal career and not face an undue hardship paying down $260,000, it's now the law in an influential United States appellate circuit.
