« Federal judge certifies modified class in East Texas civil rights case | Main | Singer Don Henley and rock band ZZ Top slated to play Lisa Blue Baron's birthday party »

September 01, 2011



My honest oniipon on this is to use a court appointed duty counsel, and when you see this counsel, tell him you plan to apologize for such a dumb act, and tell the judge the same thing, and really mean it. I am a recovering alcoholic, so I know all about the trouble drinking driving can cause. It was just the grace of God I never got caught like you. Convince the judge, and mean it, that you got a huge scare over this, and you will seek help for your drinking problem. You may not think you do, but if you were caught behind the wheel of a vehicle in that condition, I would kindly say you have a problem you need to address, now, before you, heaven forbid, kill someone, or yourself, or both. I hope you don't think I'm being too hard on you, but I hate to think about you heading down the road I took for too many years.


Let us hope your spelling improves before your next submission before District Judge sparks! You may be write, but were you right?

btw: What's wrong with judges acting impartially? Isn't that what they are supposed to do?

Scott E. Chapman, Esq, MBA, CIPP

I have had the same pleasure of dealing with judges like this...namely Judge Markell or Judge Bruce Markell in bankruptcy court. I appealed his 40 page Opinion twice and it was eventually completely overturned by the 9th Circuit. I accept my mistake which was not showing enough respect to the court that had insulting me personally and told so many lies in an effort to be comical.
See 9th Circuit Opinion.
See News Article.

In the end, a lot of wasted time, but I was write. When judges do act impartial or detract from the respect of the office, we can nudge them in the right direction. You'd hopd others would too.

Kindergarten Party

Isn't the billable hour at least partly to blame for these kindergarten-like antics?
