Trump names the judge and law clerk from the NY civil fraud trial, also showing their faces, on his web site Truth Social. Whatever his motives, it's clear this is a direct threat of instigating violence against the judge and clerk. The 1st Amendment is not a suicide pact, nor a rationale for threatening officers of the court.

This strikes me as very dangerous.

#BioWare #GameDev #Court

On August 23 of this year, Edmonton video game studio BioWare ULC terminated 50 employees without cause. In most recent court cases of termination without cause, Alberta Courts have awarded at least one month of severance pay per year of service, with the full value of all benefits included; the severance that BioWare offered to these employees was significantly less than this amount. Several of those ex-employees attempted to negotiate with BioWare for adequate severance, but BioWare refused to increase its severance amounts. 
“In light of the numerous recent industry layoffs and the fact that BioWare’s NDAs prevent us from showing any of our recent work on Dragon Age: Dreadwolf in our portfolios, we are very concerned about the difficulty many of us will have finding work as the holiday season approaches,” said one of the terminated employees.
R. Alex Kennedy, counsel for the seven employees, says that BioWare may have included illegal provisions: “There are many situations where employers include termination provisions that are not enforced by the Courts,” he said, “and | think we see that in this case too. BioWare attempted to reduce its obligation to these employees well below what the courts typically award, including by eliminating benefits from its termination pay — that appears to be contrary to the Employment Standards Code.”

(In the courtroom) Trump sat mostly silent at the defense table, arms crossed & scowling, while occasionally rolling his eyes at the judge & yawning during… the proceeding. But (outside the #court) he came out swinging — on his way in, he told reporters that AG #James was out to get him because he is performing so well in the polls.

#EFF to #Michigan #Court: Governments Shouldn’t Be Allowed to Use a #Drone to Spy on You Without a #Warrant. In Long Lake Township v. Maxon, EFF urged the Michigan Supreme Court to find that #warrantless drone #surveillance of a home violates the #FourthAmendment. Warrantless drone surveillance represents a formidable threat to #privacy and it's imperative for courts to recognize the danger that governmental drone use poses to our #4thAmendment rights.https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2023/09/eff-michigan-court-governments-shouldnt-be-allowed-use-drone-spy-you-without

After shepherding the case to the #court, #Koch network staff #attorneys are now asking the justices to overturn a decades-old #precedent. (#Thomas used to support the precedent but flipped his position in recent yrs. 🤔)

2 years ago, one of the network’s groups was the plaintiff in another #SCOTUS case, which was about #nonprofits’ ability to keep their #donors #secret. In that case, Thomas sided w/the 6-3 #conservative majority in the Koch group’s favor.

#JenaGriswold, the #Colorado secy of state, said in a statement, “I look forward to the #Colorado #court’s substantive resolution of the issues, & am hopeful that this case will provide guidance to #election officials on Trump’s eligibility as a candidate for office.”

The #plaintiffs are #Republican & #unaffiliated voters who argue that #Trump is #ineligible & that they will be #harmed if he appears on primary #ballots.

“The High Court has agreed to hear a joint challenge by green groups to the UK government’s updated net zero strategy, which was unveiled in March 2023 after the previous iteration was ruled to be unlawful.
The groups, Friends of the Earth, ClientEarth and the Good Law Project, will argue that the updated strategy does not go far enough to meet the UK’s legally binding climate targets as set out under the #ClimateChange Act of 2008.” #court #netzero #news #climate

Given past experience, I'm a sucker for a wrongful prosecution stories. Here's a pretty good one from the turn of the century.

Judd Legum reports today on the attempt of the North Carolina Judicial Standards Commission, packed with judges appointed by Republican chief justice Newby, to silence Supreme Court justice Anita Earls, the only Black woman on the court.

Her alleged misconduct? She has criticized the state Supreme Court for its handling of issues of racial and gender discrimination. So the court wants to make her shut up.

5. Why it matters that #coup #plotter #Ginni #Thomas was in contact with criminal defendant John Eastman.

While John Eastman claimed to have insights about what was going on at the #corrupt #Supreme #Court, he was also in communication with Ginni Thomas. Hmmm. 🤔

#Trump has been charged with plotting to overturn his 2020 US election defeat to Joe Biden

He's accused of four counts including #conspiracy to #defraud the US, tampering with a witness and conspiracy against the rights of citizens

Trump is due to appear in #court #tomorrow in Washington DC

Wait ... More from Sammy ...

“I know this is a controversial view, but I’m willing to say it,” Justice Alito said. “No provision in the Constitution gives [Congress] the authority to regulate the #Supreme #Court — period.”

That’s absurd.

The man has gone off the deep end.

The total #corruption of #scotus

https://www.politico.com/news/2023/07/28/alito-congress-supreme-court-ethics-00108830

Samuel Alito tells Congress to stay out of #Supreme #Court ethics controversy.

What an entitled frat bro fascist.

Because Sammy will meet #ex-parte with anyone he wants.

Sammy will accept as many luxury flights as he see fit.

Sammy will take luxury fishing trips with #plaintiffs or #defendants, whomever is paying.

As if ex-parte gifts were a thing!

No one, he means no one will hold him accountable.

Sammy's logic is not sound.
But there is more from Sammy ...

Congress should stay out of the Supreme Court’s business and stop trying to impose ethics rules on justices and clerks, Justice Samuel Alito said in an interview published by The Wall Street Journal editorial page Friday.

“Congress did not create the Supreme Court,” Alito said. 😂

This guy is off the rails #corrupt
