Re: Comment on the Panache case
"Indeed, it can be argued that if a trial did occur, it was rather loose."

Oddly, if the Cort is of the mind that no trial occurred, then there could be no acquittal.  So I find it hard to reconcile the two.  It is implied, of course, that the lower cort erred significantly in its application of law.

That said, in my professional practice, when I have lost or won a motion, I do not really care to relitigate the matter outside of the courtroom.  So that's that. 

In any event, I thank the Cort, the Government, and the Defendant for their hard work on this case.  But I remind everyone involved that this matter is not binding, and to the extent that this provides some persuasive authority, it's that the lower cort's application of the law was erroneous and Panache got off on a technicality.

I was merely reiterating some of the arguments made in the case in summary. I believe a trial did occur so the "loosely" reference was my own thinking.

Re: Comment on the Panache case
Another comment: if we had a functioning National Bar in this country, I would wish that counsel for both the Government and the Respondent* would have been subject to discipline (eg. barred from taking the next UC case) for regular outbursts and talking-out-of-turn in the just-concluded appeal.

In other words: we need a functioning National Bar in this country, because the lawyers are unruly.

(* You can't bar me, I'm the Seneschal  8) )

If I make it on the Cort, this is on my list. The Cort is supposed to set up the bar. I'm sure I could find support.among the justices to get this going.

You have my support and I do hope the king ratifies your election onto the Cort. I and a couple others have been regularly admitted to the bar after successfully passing the old bar exam that Dame Litz once administered. I had at one point offered to take up her work on the Bar but as with many things, this never happened.

If we had a Bar, I would argue that in order to argue before the UC one would need to be admitted or recognized in some way.

Retirement from the Bench Azul,

After careful consideration and upon consultation with the government, I have decided to retire from the Uppermost Cort as I plan on assuming another public office that is in conflict with my current role.

I have loved my years on the bench and while I am sad to be leaving the Cort, I look forward to the next adventure.

My retirement is effective upon taking up my new office and said office will be announced in due time.

Thank you and I wish the best to my soon to be former colleagues on the UC.

Opening the Cabana It’s that time again and I figure no one will mind if I do it so let’s get the party started.

I stake my claim to a seat.

Re: [SENESCHAL'S OFFICE] Recommendation of a Secretary of State All of these issues is precisely why I wrote the amendment that enlarged the CpI to five justices so that there was never a time when we could have less than a 3-justice panel for appeals and for setting precedent.
