Contempt of Court

April Gallop continues the appeal of her ridiculous and ill-thought court case, even by truther standards, by accusing not just the judges on the panel, but all of the judges in the Circuit, of bias.

2. The Bias Of The Panel Members, Which May Well Be Shared By Other Members of the Court, Is Based In Deep and Fervid Emotions Arising From The 9/11 Attack And Its Aftermath.
10. Beyond the particulars of the decision, and before them—in the sense that it arose reflexively, immediately upon the judges learning what the case was about—plaintiffs consider that the prejudice against them is born of the overwhelming traumatic emotional experience of the attack and its aftermath, shared by so many who were here in New York to live through it together, and adjust to a new life and a new consciousness afterwards. Each one had to do what he or she could to heal from the shock; everyone was beset with fear and rage and lust for vengeance, mutually, collectively, along with all the other feelings people in the city experienced so intensely, and have continued to deal with in the years since. The angry, peremptory tenor of the Panel‘s decision, like that of the district court, leaves little doubt of these emotions‘ pervasive nature. It reads as the same anger and vengefulness that has been the hallmark of these feelings, throughout.

As one wit on JREF described it, "suicide by judge". Another hat tip to LashL, the Goddess of Legaltainment.

Is this woman insane?

No, I do mean insane, as in the medical sense.

Is this why she might not get her arse whipped?

Between Gallop and her "lawyer for 9-11 Truth" William Veale, it's hard to tell who's the insane one.

If a Truther has a lawyer and the lawyer fights for the Truther, they're both insane.

Veale has nothing to lose but some money at this point. He's just another retired crackpot academic.

His approach here is boorish, but really it's his best available move. Being an ass will at least get his cause noticed. Polite, responsible truthers have gotten nowhere.

The argument invoking Twombly and Iqbal is laughably weak, but it's no weaker than arguments that criminal appellants make all the time. Veale's a nut but I gotta give him credit for doing what lawyers are supposed to do.

If you wanna see somebody even crazier than Veale, check this guy out.

Yeah, that's got to be what he's trying for at this point. He did everything but insult the judges' mothers.

I suspect they'll see this move for what it is and simply rule against it.
