D2J BLOG: PRE-EVENT INFO ABOUT D.C. COURT OF APPEALS
Posted June 11, 2020 by Lisa Siegel Belanger, J.D.
Oral Argument Scheduled for Friday, June 12, 2020
Topic: General Flynn’s petition for mandamus surrounding judicial lawlessness by Judge Emmet G. Sullivan
15 minutes presenting a case during oral argument goes by like a blink of the eye. I always wondered how 15 minutes to “discuss” serious subject matters facilitates the pursuit of justice. Answer: it doesn’t–TRUTH: Just optics.
Lesson learned from 24 yrs in the court swamp (state, federal, civil, criminal, trial, appellate):
Judges already have their minds made up as to their desired result. Modus operandi: know the end result, back into it. Sometimes, they get it right. Most times, they don’t.
Forget about supposed “R” & “D” designations. It doesn’t make 1 bit of difference. (Chief Justice John Roberts: textbook example).
Like many things in life, these people who don black robes and carry gavels, only care about 1 person: him/herself.
No matter who the judge is, he/she has an underlying self-serving agenda. PERIOD.
There’s no doubt in my mind from reading the words written by our Founders that they are rolling over in their graves given the judiciary branch has morphed into tyranny. Our Founders specifically expressed.
Here’s my number 1 tip regarding tomorrow’s “oral argument” before the D.C. Court of Appeals: Take it with a grain of salt.
Remember: Judge Emmet G. Sullivan is CHAIR of the
D.C. Judicial Nomination Commission.
TIP 2: oral arguments are nothing more than Kabuki theater.
The key focal point to pay attention for tomorrow’s argument: the questions asked by the D.C. Court of Appeals 3-judge panel–as well as, paying attention to questions that should be asked but that are not.
This is will be vey disappointing if this is restricted to audio only–especially considering D.C. Court of Appeals has used zoom before: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0vcI3ebjJE1g5hNT3UmltA/featured
