Narodick v. Senate Dismissed
The Judicial Council has gone back on its previous decision and dismissed Narodick v. Senate. The decision is a result of efforts by senators to "elaborate" on their charge against Assistant Chair Unterhalter... that "elaboration" has increased the number of charges from one to five.
It's unfortunate that the Judicial Council has to worry about shortsighted politics with Senators looking to make an example of people who get in the way of their own agendas. Even more unfortunate is the fact that their decisions are very vulnerable to political pressure, but that is nothing new.
The date of the hearing is up in the air, but it will either be this Wednesday or the next. Hopefully this won't become a lynch mob, but I will be bringing ropes and torches if the situation arises.
EDIT: By request, here are the charges:
JRP 1.1: Failing to Properly Execute the Duties of the Judicial Rules of Procedure
JRP 1.2: Failing to Adhere to the Spirit of Equal Protection in the Judicial Rules of Procedure
JRP 3.3: Failing to Recuse Herself When Having A Conflict Of Interest
JRP 3.8: Failing to Properly Execute a Preliminary Injunction
Title XXI, Section 2.2: Illegally Campaigning While A Member of the Council
My take is that each one of these charges is a giant stretch at best and a poor excuse at worst, but we'll see how the Senate deals with the situation.Email This Post!
