Legal - Due process or bust....All I Can Stands - A look under the judicial hood.
What to do when the facts, law and precedent are on your side and the courts artfully ignore all three?
The Lyceum has been on the receiving end of some pretty odd decisions, contrary to facts, law and precedent.
If the Courts won't address the issues, arguments, facts, laws and precedent, maybe its time to look under the judicial hood. Here are a list of judges we have had cases before where the facts, law and precedent say one thing but the decisions are plainly evasive maneuvers.
During his swearing in speech as a Federal Judge did he, a Harvard Law School Graduate, really say
"... A NATION, WITHOUT THE TRADITION, WILL AND ABILITY TO SECURE ITS LIBERTY UNDER THE RULE OF LAW WOULD BE NO MORE THAN A THUGGISH ROGUE." -AND- "THE EASTERN DISTRICT FOR ME, HOWEVER, ALSO SYMBOLIZES FOUNDATIONS OF FAITH, FAMILY AND EQUAL JUSTICE UNDER LAW." - AND - " ENEMIES OF THE RULE OF LAW HAVE AND WILL CONTINUE TO FIND THE JUDGES OF THIS COURT MORE THAN DANGEROUS ENOUGH.", -AND- "AND SO I HAVE A WORD OF FRIENDLY ADVICE FOR THOSE WHO MIGHT BE TEMPTED TO CHALLENGE THE RULE OF LAW: NOT IN THIS COURT, NOT IN OUR HOUSE, AND NOT ON MY WATCH."
while dismissing an appeal without notice or request, AND, refusing to address that dismissal in a motion to reargue, AND, refusing to put either the dismissal or the denial of the motion to reargue to paper??
CORNELL LAW GRADS ASPIRE TO THIS?
Mooting a pre-existing DECISION to avoid dealing with issues?
Altering a judgement on pacer.gov, AFTER IT IS FILED.
Orders exist even BEFORE they are ever seen by a judge?
Clear bias present in the decision: I WOULD NOT DO IT IF I COULD.
Failure to address ANY of the 11 alleged clear errors or ANY of the 3 alleged manifest injustices in the Mortion to reconsider?
Must be nice to be a King!
