Indiana ballot challenge (smackdown for Orly)

I thought the panel bent over backwards to give a fair hearing and look at the stacks of papers put before them.IAAL and I agree. There are many mansions in the house of justice, and many different ways to conduct a fair and impartial hearing. Judge Malihi's way -- give the birthers a couple of hour...

FARRAR v OBAMA ACT II (APPEAL FCSC)

Every time Dr. Orly calls herself a "Civil Rights Attorney" or calls her cases a "Civil Rights Case", an angel coughs up blood.I hear you. I've just never heard of a "Civil Rights Attorney" who is also a racist. You're behind the times. It's well understood that the only remaining racism in this cou...

The immediate refusal of Jablonski's MTD without even waiting for Plaintiffs' responses was at least odd. I am not in a position to say whether Jablonski's argument was right or wrong, but it did not strike me as so unstateable as to warrant such an interventionist response from the ALJ. It certainl...

Jablonski submitted a motion that argued facts, going light on the law. When appearing in front of a competent judge, that's usually the logical thing to do -- because you can assume that the judge knows the law, and will tend to gloss over reading legal citations that tell him what he already knows...

Guys, I like a rocking discussion of minimum contacts as much as anyone, but you're making this too complicated. Ordinarily, you can't serve process (i.e., a summons or a subpoena) on someone's lawyer. You have to serve the party herself."Ordinarily" isn't the issue. Georgia law clearly states you c...

[Out of an abundance of "not helping Orly" especially right after an own goal was scored, I'll just say there are a lot of other reasons Obama does not have to show up, many of them in Georgia law itself.That's completely correct, and there may be some federal law reasons too. But the reasons are no...

[As to why I think most judges would have ruled otherwise, I'd argue that on the basis of numbers.

There's a reason for t...

[In no way does Malihi say that the POTUS is required to attend. He said the Jablonski's arguments were not adequately argued, but Malihi didn't say that a GA subpoena is enforceable for an out of state defendant. While the subpoena isn't quashed, it was never an enforceable subpoena. The likelihood...

[Georgia permits service of subpoenas on counsel (some states don't allow this, BTW) so, from a compliance perspective, Obama was served in Georgia.

No, but given the ALJ's previous opinions in similar cases, I expect a lengthy and detailed section containing findings of fact and conclusions of law that derive from those facts. I expect Judge Malihi, if he is not hearing the evidence he needs for good findings of fact, to take over and direct th...

The other issue then is the two parent/dual citizenship idiocy and Hatfield and Van Irion will attempt to argue. . . .

Jablonki does have standing to object to the subpoenas as each of the ones I've seen (most?) also subpoena the witness to a deposition that would require Jablonki to attend.That's one of the obvious arguments that should have been in the motion, because if one of those friendly witnesses shows up fo...
