When is WNYC going to set aside a time period for a retrospective on Chief Judge Lippman long and storied legal career - his early days of practicing law through the progressive precedent setting judicial decisions that are the object of every law student over the past generation.
Maybe it can be co-hosted by Wayne Barrett, from the Village Voice, who has made some efforts to have Judge Lippman's career honesty evaluated.http://www.villagevoice.com/2009-02-11/news/paterson-duped-again-shelly-silver-gets-childhood-pal-jonathan-lippman-state-s-top-courts-job/5/
why are all self represented litigants disrespected by the court?
Your guest makes me feel that my bad habits of not taking drugs as recommended has some merits. I used to take vioxx before it was taken off the market but i took about once or twice a week or when i had a flare up. i refused to take pain medication after open heart surgery when i found the pain after the effects of the medication was worse than before the medication. i take me blood pressure and anti cholestrol medication abut twice or thrice a week or when i remember.
Did he say that the judicial system separates the US from every other country? Doesn't that sound crazy? It's so strange that even highly educated Americans feel the need to comfort themselves with things like that.
Wow. Restores my hope that we will eventually come to our senses again, with the help of the reasoned wisdom and humanity of Judge Lippman!
... not so sure how "shiny" that beacon is any more.
Will the records of people who've already been convicted at 16 or 17 be sealed retroactively? Will there be any compensation for them?
