Wish we could hear Roy's reaction when Larry explains what this means: "There would need to be full discovery on substantial truth. There would need to be full discovery on actual malice." :dance:
In what universe do you think Klayman knows what that means?

Didn't someone tell Klaymen he couldn't keep calling his client "Chief Justice"?

I mean, not only is he not, but he was forcibly removed from the office, wasn't he?

When this case was in D.C., before it was transferred, that judge chided Klayman, but didn't order Klayman or anything.

Moore was removed from office for the first time over his rock. He later was suspended (over his same-sex marriage orders), and then resigned; his suspension was tantamount to removal.

And repeated intentional refusal to comply with discovery requirements leads to terminating sanctions.
Would that be like Rule 37?

I picked this tidbit in the Elizabeth McNamara resumé:
Cruise v. Bauer Publishing, et al.
Lead counsel representing all defendants in libel action brought by Tom Cruise arising out of reporting in In Touch and Life
& Style that he had "abandoned" his daughter. Amicably resolved following discovery. (C.D. Cal. 2013)
Amicably resolved after discovery? For whom?
Is that a gentle way to say that they had him dead to rights?

Tony Ortega, the leading journalist covering Scientology, wrote extensively about this suit when it was filed and resolved. His site is www.tonyortega.org. It was a pretty bogus suit, probably filed because Bauer is a foreign-owned company and thus might have been more willing to pay out because libel laws in Europe tend to favor plaintiffs more (certainly true in England, though I don't know exactly what the situation is in Germany). This is confirmation what a lot of people on Ortega's site thought at the time: that Cruise didn't have much of a case and that it woldn't survive discovery.

Thanks John. I am on the site now, reading about Cruise's deposition.

Bottom Line, Roy Moore will not want to be deposed by Ms McNamara (if he has any brain at all).

In another Moore-Klayman defamation lawsuit (the one filed in Alabama), Moore partially survived a motion to dismiss. (Barry Ragsdale represents the defendants.)

FOX: Roy Moore leads a lawsuit against COVID-19 restrictions, including mask mandate, in Alabama:
Governor Kay Ivey and the state's leading health officer Dr. Scott Harris have a lawsuit on their hands.

A group unhappy with the coronavirus restrictions placed on Alabamians filed it Thursday and there's a familiar name at the helm of that suit: Former Chief Justice Roy Moore.

Here in Alabama, we could be in the final week of a mask mandate. If she doesn't extend it, that part of Governor Kay Ivey's effort to slow the spread of the coronavirus, will run out on October 2.

According to the lawsuit by the Foundation for Moral Law and Roy Moore, the restrictions by Governor Ivey and Dr. Harris are unconstitutional.

In a statement, Moore said, "Our economy has been decimated, jobs lost, schools closed, church doors shut, and we have been told we must stay home and wear masks in public places. People are tired of such abuse!”

Two of the plaintiffs in the lawsuit are pastors who said they haven't been able to return to in-person church services the way they are accustomed. Another plaintiff said masks make it hard for her to breathe and she's suffered embarrassment and rejection from others by not wearing it.

Moore said the action ultimately wants the governor and Dr. Harris to stop "issuing mandates which exceed their authority."
Another article specified the suit was filed in N.D.Ala.

We have one too!
https://www.wjtv.com/news/batesville-at ... ve-orders/
JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – Mississippi attorney, Michael D. Herrin, has filed a federal lawsuit against Governor Tate Reeves in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Mississippi. Herrin, who is based in Batesville, is suing to have all 59 COVID-19 executive orders issued by the governor declared unconstitutional.

The basis of Herrin’s suit is that the restrictions on the citizens’ rights to assemble, travel, work, worship and speak are in violation of the First, Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution.

Herrin also believes the executive orders are in violation of the strict requirements of the Mississippi Emergency Management and Civil Defense Act.

The full complaint can be viewed here.

Because the economy would be doing peachy, schools would be open, church doors, the whole nine yards. Just everyone would be sick or dying.

The local Lutheran church continues to have virtual services with no issues. They're on YouTube if you miss one or are late. Probably even better for the shut-ins. People still send in their tithes.

You, dear plaintiff, should be embarrassed by your indifference to the lives of others.

I'm in a grouchy mood because doc just put me on something that, if I were exposed to COVID-19, "guarantees hospitalization." Stern doctor finger wag - on camera.

There’s only about 200 years of legal precedent stating they do have the power for the mandates, but
Little things like that have never stopped Moore.

Precedent, schmecedent. Amy Barrett isn't going to give a shit about that nonsense. If something is restricting any white evangelical christian or catholic from doing something they want to do, it is obviously unconstitutional. Mormons, jews, muslims, etc. will be told, not so politely that they should convert.
bring out the tumbrils. I am so fucking filled with pain and anger at what is going on in this country. I do deeply believe that if trump somehow retains power it will be the end of democracy in this country and the end of this country as we know it.

Birmingham News: Judge rules against Roy Moore’s clients in lawsuit challenging Ivey mask order:
U.S. District Judge W. Keith Watkins has denied a motion for a temporary restraining order against Gov. Kay Ivey and State Health Officer Dr. Scott Harris to block enforcement of their emergency regulations to limit the spread of COVID-19, including the statewide mask order.

Seven people represented by former state Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore sued Ivey and Harris on Sept. 24 claiming the orders violated their constitutional rights under the First, Fifth, and 14th Amendments.

* * *

But in a ruling issued Tuesday, Watkins wrote that temporary restraining orders require “imminent irreparable harm” and are “premised on the need for speedy and urgent action to protect a plaintiff’s rights before a case can be resolved on its merits.” Watkins said the plaintiffs did not act with speed and urgency.

Harris first issued orders restricting public gatherings in March, and Ivey and Harris issued the statewide mask order in July. Watkins wrote that the plaintiffs could have challenged the orders as much as five months and at least two months earlier than they did.

“Either way, Plaintiffs waited an impermissible amount of time to seek the ‘extraordinary and drastic remedy’ of a temporary retraining order,” Watkins wrote.

Tuesday’s ruling does not end the case. Lawyers representing Ivey and Harris intend to file a motion to dismiss the case. Watkins ordered them to file that by Oct. 20 and ordered the plaintiffs to file their response by Nov. 3.
