On the Street Where You Live

Bill Schmalfeldt and I don’t live on the same street. The word on my street is very different from rumors circulating on his.ffr201309292102Z

Regardless of what the voices are telling him, I have no intention of asking the court to change the peace order issued against Schmalfeldt in any way—except possibly seeking a six month extension. I can’t say that I’m looking forward to the hearing on 16 October. I take no joy in watching the Cabin Boy making a fool of himself.

Oh, and that bit about “unconstitutional means” is utter rubbish. We have in the U. S. Constitution a thing called the First Amendment. One of the rights secured therein is the right to petition the government for redress of grievance, and the sort of petition I filed seeking the peace order is one of the sorts of things covered by that clause. At least the Supreme Court thinks so [California Motor Transport Co. v. Trucking Unlimited, 404 U.S. 508 (1972)].

The right of access to the courts is indeed but one aspect of the right of petition.

The Cabin Boy really needs to stop getting his legal advice from Acme.

  1. CB obviously understands the purpose and process of the appeal hearing better than anyone in or out of the legal system. He should show up with all his evidence, including significantly large visual aids if possible (judges are, after all, old and near sighted), and an extensive list of witnesses to call and if those narrow minded jurisprudential nannies try to deny him his rights to due process he should force them to hear his case in it’s entirety! They HAVE to listen to him but they think he doesn’t know that and there’s NOTHING they can do about it. He just needs to keep pressing forward no matter what they say or do! Only then can justice be served.

  2. Re the whole “word on the street” nonsense. The only people in a position to know whether WWJH had considered dropping the PO would be WJJH and Zoa Barnes. The court clerk would not know this. So, either BS is lying, or he is telling the truth when he says that someone told him this. I believe the latter, which once again makes me wonder who is giving him such bad advice.
