ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) The Minnesota Supreme Court has suspended the license of an attorney who made anti-Catholic slurs against judges and others in legal filings.

The court's ruling Wednesday against Hastings attorney Rebekah Nett leaves her indefinitely suspended with the right to petition for reinstatement after nine months.

Nett has frequently represented a Wisconsin religious group, the Dr. R.C. Samanta Roy Institute of Technology Inc. In 2011, Nett filed documents in a bankruptcy proceeding in which she called U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Nancy Dreher a "Catholic Knight Witch Hunter" and a "black-robed bigot." She also suggested a Vatican conspiracy to destroy her clients.

Nett has previously been sanctioned by state and federal courts in Wisconsin.
