    You have been remiss in your duty. There is no followup as to what happened on 10/22.I see mini-series all over this.

      Judge Hittner recused himself. Hon. Melinda Harmon has the case now, and Hittner owes her one.

    There’s nothing more enjoyable than an even judicial temperament in a judge with life tenure. It leaves the public with a true sense of the blessings of our system of justice.

    I have been reading your blog for some time now. You first caught my attention with your post on rehabilitating non judgmental jurors.

    I believe I have the answer to the question on whether the plaintiff can hold his temper in person.

    Clearly the judge was a jerk. I’m not saying that the plaintiff isnt a jerk, but it’s the judge’s duty to enforce the law.

      David Hittner does not suffer fools gladly. Recusing himself was probably the right call.

    When a prose plaintiff kicks a judges ass in a circuit appeals court it is way past time for the plainly incompetent judge to be looking for some other line of work.
