  • Seth Barrett Tillman: Part III: The Mystery of DC & MD v Trump

    Posted by Jonathan on March 10th, 2019 (All posts by )

    Hundreds and thousands of actions go through the federal courts promptly—Judge Messitte and Judge Sullivan are dedicated judges who do not regularly let motions grow stale beyond the standard 6-month target deadline. So why cannot the President get his motions decided in a timely way just like any other litigant in the federal courts? It is all so difficult to understand.**

    Seth helps us to understand.

      “Seth helps us to understand.”
      Am I the only one then who doesn’t understand? What is the takeaway from these posts? Is there going to be a Part IV that actually explains anything? My guess is that the judges are just never going to rule on this, and leave the Emoluments Clause as strictly a political matter, with no judicial significance.

      Seth asks good questions. That’s a step to understanding.

      I am not a lawyer, nor do I play one on TV . . .

      But there is the classic maxim the “Justice delayed is justice denied.”

      If everyone from the president on down is subject to having their cases placed in stasis based on the political leanings of the judge, then the law is no longer a legitimate factor in society.

      Which means that we are approaching interesting times.
