It is just us in America because there is no justice. Don’t believe it? Have you followed the Flynn case? Do you think the law is about things like finding the truth? Think it’s about evidence or facts?
Think procedure is important? Do you think having the judge solicit in the media to get a poll on the public preference is iffy?
Justice delayed is justice denied
Well here we go. You didn’t think General Flynn’s case was over just yet, did you? No, of course not. Judges, lawyers, and politicians drag stuff out for years. Facts be damned. Here’s the latest on the case of the former national security adviser.
The federal judge in the Flynn case has postponed any immediate resolution of the defendant’s criminal case. Why you might ask? It turns out he feels the need to solicit opinions. Just when we might have thought cases were tried in courtrooms using evidence.
Just when we were getting used to judges making evidence-based decisions. This judge apparently wants to do a public poll. Not really in the media exactly… but by soliciting outside groups and individuals. Judge Sullivan is soliciting for the filing of “friend of the court” or amicus briefs.
Bring on the dancing bears and clowns
Why do we pay for a court system that has no decision-makers? How is this proper judicial behavior? Have you ever heard of this happening before after the prosecution moves for dismissal? Just when we might have thought the Leftist bovine excrement couldn’t get any deeper. Judge Sullivan now risks turning this into a complete circus. Bring on the dancing bears and clowns…
From Fox News via Right Scoop: D.C. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan issued an order Tuesday indicating that he’ll soon accept “amicus curiae,” or “friend of the court” submissions, in the case of former national security adviser Michael Flynn — essentially allowing the court to use an “ask the audience” lifeline in what has already proved to be an unpredictable and chaotic prosecution.
Sullivan’s minute order indicated that an upcoming scheduling order would clarify the parameters of who specifically could submit the amicus briefs, which are submissions by non-parties that claim an interest in the case. Sullivan specifically said he anticipates that “individuals and organizations” will file briefs “for the benefit of the court.” It is just us in America because there is no justice.
