DC – Rodney Class – Order granting motion for leave

The judge has granted, as expected, the government’s motion for leave to file a late response. The stage is set for the trial. Expect Rodney to further explore irrelevant aspects while ignoring what is happening here. He has foolishly rejected the plea-bargain, which would have resulting in a guilty plea with no jail time.

Rod Class – Expatriation and the 14th Amendment

The 14th amendment does not apply to you and I, just to those who hold public office…

Such foolishness

Per Gatsby

Rod: The public defender spent an hour trying to convince me to sign the plea bargain to “get the prosecutor off the hook” so he wouldn’t have to respond to my motions.

Re the plea bargain: “I told them `No way.'”

 

DC – US v Class – plea bargain?

In this “show“, Class talks about his meeting with the prosecutor

Rod was offered a deal to entirely drop the D.C. charge if he pleads guilty to the second one, but he would serve no prison time. It sounds like he’s taking the deal.

HT: Gatsby

This would mean that Class can no longer own firearms in North Carolina… A relatively minor punishment for his rather foolish behavior.

Will he take the offer?

He is still trying desperately to file his nonsense in the court, objecting to the fact that the Judge does no longer allow Rod to file his nonsense unless he obtains leave from the court. Rod does not understand that there are limits to any constitutional right…

DC – US v Class – Opposition to 404 motion

Here’s Rod’s Rebuttal Motion to the Gov’s 404(b) Motion Against Rod…

It has officially hit the Court so we can release it publicly !
The Gov now has until 4.22.14 to respond to it !

If you read it carefully the Gov, hopefully, can’t rebut it. Then we’ll
see what judge Kessler’s next move is !

 

>> The Gov’s Motion to Use Rule 404(b) Against Rod:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/0perob464udcgku/DC_Gun_Case_Gov._Doc._50_Other_Crimes_Brought_In_4.3.14.pdf

As I feared, Rodney focuses on procedural matters in which he tries to argue his position that the government has failed to answer. However, the Judge allowed the Government to oppose the myriad of ‘motions’ filed by Class and did so in a timely fashion.

It was established on March 7 during the MotionHearing that the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure, the Federal Rules of Evidence and the Local Rules of this court are to be obeyed by the government.

Duh, perhaps that is news to Rodney but that is how the court has always worked.

The Prosecutor/government also did not oppose any statement made by this living man with a soul and whereas Title 28, section 2255 states if the Constitution or laws of the united States are violated the Court has no choice but to vacate and dismiss the action.

Failure to state a claim. Rodney cannot just claim that the Constitution or laws of the US have been violated. And the government did oppose many of the statements made. 28 USC 2255 is also irrelevant because it addresses habeas corpus after a conviction.

And, whereas the Prosecutor/government is aware that legislated or decided (by the Supreme Court) Rights (the Miranda Warning, which precludes every other government argument) are required to be read to you first and NOT after the fact of a 3 to 4 hour questioning period, the government cannot assume you waived your rights when you were forced to sign a statement to that effect after the fact.

The Miranda warning only affects statements made by Class while he was held under arrest. It is unlikely that the prosecution is going to allow any statements he made during that period of time.

Whereas the government Prosecutor was given his opportunity to rebut all motions and all foundations of the motions filed in by this living man, rodney-dale; class, on March 7, 2014 and that the Prosecutor has declined to do so as he could not rebut the “facts” as they were based on the Constitution, the federal statutes, and based on Supreme Court decisions.

Nothing much that resembles facts were presented by Class and the Prosecutor objected to most of them. The Court waived the memorandum of law because the issues are so non-sensical. See document 51 for example, filed on 04/04/2014.

Finally Rod gets to rule 404 but presents no argument or presents case law that addresses the prosecutors Rule 4040 motion.

And, whereas Rule 404 under section (b) prohibits the use of evidence of a crime or wrong or other acts is not admissible to prove a person’s character in order to show that on a particular occasion the person acted in accordance with that character. See Rule 404.

As to service

And, whereas the government is in violation of proper “service” and notification, pursuant to Rule 49, and all filings have to go to the defendant in a timely manner, the Prosecution’s recent motions, also, should be stricken for improper service and failure to follow procedures.

Service was effected through ECF and since Class had failed to provide the court with an address, something the Court ordered Class to correct, he cannot complain about lack of mail service.(See Document 52) Furthermore, Rodney has a lawyer who is the one that should be notified, per court rules.

Rule 49 explains

(b) How Made. Service must be made in the manner provided for a civil action. When these rules or a court order requires or permits service on a party represented by an attorney, service must be made on the attorney instead of the party, unless the court orders otherwise.

DC – US v Class – Next Steps

I had not even noticed, but the court already rejected some filings.

ORDER as to RODNEY CLASS, leave to file is denied as to defendant’s Motion to Discharge Notice of Default Failure to File Entry of Appearance Failure to Follow Procedure Violation of Oath of Office; Motion for Entry of Appearance, Third Party Intervenor; and Motion for Clarification of Parties because they are repetitive of Motions already pending with the Court. Signed by Judge Gladys Kessler on 4/8/2014. (tth) (Entered: 04/08/2014)

The following order sets the stage for the likelihood the Judge is going to grant Class’s myriad of motions.

ORDER as to RODNEY CLASS, defendant, having knowingly and intelligently waived his right to counsel, shall be permitted to represent himself, and the Federal Defender, A.J. Kramer, is appointed as stand-by advisory counsel to the Defendant; no later than 4/15/2014, Defendant shall file any Opposition to the Government’s Motion to Admit Other Crimes Evidence Pursuant to Rule 404(b) of the Federal Rules of Evidence, and Government shall file its Reply no later than 4/22/2014. Jury Trial set for 7/7/2014 at 09:30 AM in Courtroom 26A before Judge Gladys Kessler. SEE ORDER FOR ADDITIONAL DETAILS. Signed by Judge Gladys Kessler on 4/7/2014. (tth) (Entered: 04/07/2014)

The only issue the court is interested in is Class’s response to the Government’s motion to admit other crimes. Class has to respond by 04/15/2014. In order to respond efficiently and avoid the motion to be granted, Class will have to find relevant case law and argue as to why the motion would be prejudicial to him. While Class has a stand-by counsel, Rod and his friends are likely to try to put something together themselves.

While they may want to re-argue issues of jurisdiction etc, there is only a limited issue on the table right now.

DC – US v Class – Rules…

Rodney has found out that the US laws and Constitution are ‘admissible’. Wow… Poor soul. Of course, he can submit US laws and Constitution but he cannot interpret the laws and Constitution, that’s the court’s task.

Rodney also ‘discovered’ that they have overlooked the rules and local rules of the Courts.

Hilarious.

Now we have the ‘rule books’, this changes a lot of how we deal with them.

Harvey explains why a 3rd party intervenor is applicable even though the court has pointed out that there is no such right to intervene in a criminal case. If they want to follow the rules, then they should first familiarize themselves with said rules.. For goodness sakes, Rod should be focusing on his defense…

DC – US v Class – When you fail, try more…

Intervenors are not allowed in criminal cases… Geez, those are the simple rules. Now he is trying misprision of a felony or treason. You are reporting a crime as a third party intervenor. He still does not get it…. Poor soul.

The constitution and the Federal Statutes are admissible as evidence… Sure but they need to have any relevance to the case. And the Court is going to deal with issues of law, and interpretation of law. You can file as many statutes as you want, it has no relevance to the case at hand.

DC – US v Class – Dangerous talk

Rodney Class ‘educates’ his followers about how to lose a criminal court case.

Still confused about the difference between Criminal and Civil procedures, and rules.

“We need to get our hands on local rules.” And no federal rules of civil procedures do not apply here. Did Rodney really not understand that these ‘rule books’ are available on line?

Pretrial motions are not to try to argue Constitutional questions or interpretations of the Law.

[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]
