Court Update: the Ban Remains

image OK, so many of you have been asking me what happened at my hearing.  Here is a synopsis, based on my recollection.

The hearing was with Judge Josh Wall.  Life is full of ironies.

A Judicial Reality Check

SLAMThings had to get worse before they have a chance to get better.  At some point, however, they get so bad that it’s time for the pendulum to swing back in the other direction.  I think we may have reached that point.

This is a follow-on letter to Judge Hogan and Judge Leibensperger I sent last week:


The full package is here (the document not valid were attached to Fitzpatrick’s “oppositions”, which I need to scan in as he hasn’t sent them to me by email).

Summary: what is happening should be completely unacceptable to all of us: what is happening is an embarrassment for us all (Judges violating Constitution, pro se bias, etc.).  Therefore, as you are Judges, it is your responsibility to intervene.

Updates: How Court Works

image Yesterday I got a bit of a lesson about how the Court system works from the clerk on my case (Arthur DeGuglielmo).

1.  Filing Motions – you send in a motion.  The motion is reviewed by the clerk (or assistant clerk) assigned to your case, who then directs your motion to the right judge.  So the clerk apparently has quite a bit of influence.  And remember: once a judge rules on a motion, any motion for reconsideration goes to that same judge.
