YOU'RE out of order! YOU'RE out of order! The whole TRIAL is out of order!
Who, except everybody younger than 30, doesn't remember Al Pacino's dramatic outburst in the movie "And Justice For All"?
Attorney Jill Clark--who is (apparently) on "inactive disability" status and facing disciplinary proceedings against her law license, seems to have ripped a page straight out of Al Pacino's script, filing a "suggestion" to recuse (so it would appear) THE ENTIRE STATE SUPREME COURT...
The "suggestion" (who files a "suggestion?") was filed July 23. Though the "docket entry" characterizes the filing as a motion, the title of the document is "Respondent's suggestion for voluntary recusal and/or motion to disqualify all seven justices."
On a related topic: According to Wikipedia, Old 97 was a Southern Railway train officially known as the Fast Mail. It ran from Washington, D.C. to Atlanta, Georgia. On September 27, 1903 the train derailed near Danville, Virginia, inspiring a famous railroad ballad.
Here is a YouTube embed of that railroad ballad for your listening pleasure.
Well, they told Clark once, and they told her good,
Don't be wasting Judge Zimmerman's time,
But now it was Twenty Twelve, Not Two Thousand And Four,
And she'd wasted all the justices' time.
(That's as much as I've got so far, but maybe I'll keep working on it)
In any case...
On the same day, July 23, there was a Motion to Intervene by Dan Aschemann.
As revealed by this blog in previous coverage, Dan Aschemann is one of Jill Clark's clients who is involved in some kind of religious cult. Any filings by Aschemann are likely to be deliciously nutty. (Sarcasm font) Oh, sure, everybody knows there's a vast conspiracy against Jill Clark but who knew it went all the way to THE VATICAN? (End sarcasm font) This is the second motion by one of Clark's clients to intervene in the madness. The first was filed by landlord Stepnes.
Though this blogger is squeezing in fun summertime activities in between bouts of blogging, anything involving Jill "Counsel For Crazy Town" Clark brings me running to my computer keyboard.
