I’m thinking out loud here…another Flori-Duh! moment

The motion filed by the attorneys for the defendant in the case State of Florida v. Casey Anthony – [nutshell ver. – outlines the reason why they want the presiding judge to recuse himself from this trial].

28 U.S.C. sec. 144, captioned “Bias or prejudice of judge,” provides that under circumstances, when a party to a case in a United States District Court files a “timely and sufficient affidavit that the judge before whom the matter is pending has a personal bias or prejudice either against him or in favor of an adverse party,” the case shall be transferred to another judge.

The general rule is that to warrant recusal, a judge’s expression of an opinion about the merits of a case or familiarity with the facts or the parties must have originated in a source outside the case itself. This is referred to in the United States as the “extra-judicial source rule” and was recognized as a general presumption, although not an invariable one, in the 1994 U.S. Supreme Court decision in Liteky v. United States.

What do you think?

Here is what Judge Strickland was thinking during a bond hearing July 2008

“Not a bit of useful information has been provided by Ms. Anthony as to the whereabouts of her daughter,” Judge Strickland said.  “And I would add that the truth and Ms. Anthony are strangers.”

… Judge Stan Strickland 22 July 2008

Response from three of the local affiliates of ABC, NBC and CBS on the recent Motion filed by the defendant to have the judge recused from her trial.

WKMG anchor – said that Strickland wasn’t commenting.

WESH law Analyst –  “Judge Strickland has previously shown fairness to Casey Anthony in the way he sentenced her in the check case.”

WFTV anchor Liz Artz said, “We’re not expecting to hear anything from Judge Strickland until he takes up the motion in court.”

I guess posting old sparky on the blog that Judge….

I guess posting old sparky on the blog that Judge Strickland enjoys reading…rubbed the defense team into a fury.

ref- In response to a pretrial motion to have a judge removed from a current preceding of State of Florida vs. C Anthony

I admit reading that post named in the pretrial motion, but the post does not promote toward guilt,  but offers a view of the death penalty from this writers point of view.

I am not posting a link, because I do not want to add to this media vs Casey Anthony saga.

to the guy who broke out his ill charades skills to get out of paying toll fee

Ok… If you drive to work and back home at a minimum of 32 weeks a year,
using the same toll road,
why do you think sitting for what amounted to the length of a 5/3 bank radio commercial…
That the toll light will turn green just because it knows you don’t have enough change in the cup holder of your over priced Toyota, oh I ment Lexus, your impairment goes far beyond your inability to comprehend that your Lexyota is a mass of metal on wheels that will always tigger the “I got a picture of your car tag” buzzer.
The solution to your problem lies within the confines of your brain.
So if, or when you find your cerebellum, hopefully in this lifetime…this planet, this time zone.. Preferably this very moment…for love the of god, place the remaining 12 cents in the bin or place your foot on the accelerator now!

FYI – The cerebellum differs from most other parts of the brain (especially the cerebral cortex) in that the signal processing is almost entirely feedforward—that is, signals move unidirectionally through the system from input to output, with very little recurrent internal transmission.
