And that’s what’s happening, it seems, to plaintiffs in two federal lawsuits brought against Luzerne County Court judges Mark Ciavarella and Michael Conahan (pictured). As loyal LBers will recall, the judges were accused of participating in a kickback scheme similar to the one described above. They’ve been prosecuted criminally, but, according to this story in the Wilkes-Barre Times Leader, might well escape civil liability. (On the criminal front, they first entered guilty pleas, but later withdrew them.) Click here, here and here for earlier LB posts about the situation. WSJ

If judges made it too easy for people to sue Judges, more people would be suing Judges. About the only thing you can accomplish by suing a Judges is to force the fucker to disqualify himself from your case. That’s about it.

Harlow Cuadra’s Second Trial

Before Harlow Caudra‘s FIRST TRIAL even started, we pointed out that A Federal Judge in New York in the KMPG Tax Case had already ruled that the CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT to legal counsel specifically is a right to ONE’s COUNSEL OF CHOICE. The decision of that federal judge was not only upheld by the Court of Appeals but, reportedly, the US Justice Department has had to alter the way it prosecutes cases as a result of that Federal Judge throwing out charges against ex-KMPG employees because the Judge ruled that The US Attorney prevented the defendants from hiring the counsel of their choice.

Demtrius Fannick, Harlow Cuadra’s new lawyer, is in fact arguing on appeal that Cuadra was denied his right to counsel BECAUSE Cuadra was denied the counsel of his choice. This ain’t rocket science. When it comes to questions of constitutional law, I think everyone in the fucking worldwide legal community would go with A Federal Judge versus some Luzerne County Judge. At this point, the term “Luzerne County Judge” is essentially a Joke in and of itself.

Cuadra Judge up Re-Election

Not only is a new trial for Cuadra more than likely, it is also possible that the Judge who presided over Cuadra’s first trial won’t be a judge the second time around. THAT JUDGE is up for a “retention vote” and he has to combat a photograph of him with Judge Michael Conahan and a convicted drug dealer.

One has to wonder what became of all of these aholes with no lives hustling for Sean Lockhart after Harlow Cuadra’s trial ended. I certainly wonder what that clown porn director‘s interest is in Bryan Kocis’ Murder that he would seemingly dedicate every fucking minute of his existence FOR A GOOD TWO YEARS to “protecting” Sean Lockhart from bad blog entries and comments on the internet.

We do know that he had a connection to a guy convicted of assaulting a couple for money.
