[NBC: This is report from the troops on the ground who report that the trial will start on July 7th.]
There may be a Live Call on Thursday night – 4.10.14……After Rod rests up after the traveling and, hopefully, he’ll give us a blow by blow description of what went on…
Here’s what we got from him today…
Today’s Hearing went extremely well ! Rod was very pleased that he was able to get as many points as he did as he testified in court.
[NBC: Rod did not testify in court, he presented oral arguments in support of his motions.]
He was well rehearsed and brought up endless reasons that the prosecution didn’t have any reasons to be bringing their action against him.
[NBC: There are no legal reasons as to why the prosecution cannot bring their action in the DC Court]
On the other hand, the prosecution had so little to say in their rebuttal that it was if they didn’t say anything ! And, the judge seemed to be aware of their lack of participation ! After the prosecution’s poor response to Rod’s points and allegations,
[NBC: Allegations have no relevance, this is going to be decided on the rule of law which is quite straightforward. Rod will be having his trial…]
the judge didn’t give Rod his 2nd portion of time allotted for him to summarize – She just recessed the proceedings for today after indicating that she would rule on today’s testimony in a while (probably 2 weeks or so). She also set a tentative date of Monday, July 7th for the Trial… that is, if she decides that the prosecution has enough cause to warrant a trial ! We’ll have to wait and see what happens between now and then !
[NBC: This does not bode well as it is clear that the Judge is very capable on making up her own mind about Rod’s filings. ]
There were about 20 of our people in court today ! Twice as many as have ever been there in DC ! Thanks for participating in the “justice” system such as it is !
In the meantime, the Third Party Intervenor paperwork from everyone is hitting the court and it may have some bearing on the situation also ! THANK YOU to Everyone who was able to get it filed in to the court ! And, it can STILL be filed in !
[NBC: This is a criminal case… My goodness sakes the 3rd party intervenor rule is for civil proceedings]
