It is now past close of business on 15 May, 2014, and the time has expired for me to file an opposition to Bill Schmalfeldt’s petition to the Maryland Court of Appeal for a writ of certiorari for an appeal of the extension of the peace order issued against him. I did not bother to file anything.
Schmalfeldt’s petition is incomplete, but even if the Court cuts him some slack because he’s pro se, he has not raised any new issues of law. I expect that the Court will deny this petition just as they did his appeal of the original order.
Now that the petition is ripe, the paperwork will be forwarded to the judges for consideration. They’ll deal with it when they get to it.
