Re: “Raleigh Immigration Attorney Gets $2,510 Fine for Texting in Court

Retaliatory fines for activities that are clearly permitted per the posted signage in that court should subject the IJ to censure. This is utterly ridiculous. She was clearly NOT disturbing the court. Texting silently in the back row disturbs the judge? Biased judges disturb the reasonable expectations of all parties to proceedings before the EOIR.

Re: “Raleigh Immigration Attorney Gets $2,510 Fine for Texting in Court

Perhaps the appeal will succeed, but judges are usually reluctant to interfere with another judge's discretion to run a courtroom as he or she wishes. Apparently the EOIR rule conforms to the tradition of granting judges discretion, as has been the norm in courts for hundreds of years. It may be that the judge and the lawyer have a toxic relationship, and it may be that the judge acted poorly. But unless the appellate court sides with the lawyer (or she successfully pursues a claim under the Judicial Conduct and Disability Act), she will have to find a way to work with a judge who's not going anywhere. If she can't do that, she should carefully consider whether it's in the best interest of her clients to represent them before that judge. Ticking off a judge, even one who's unreasonable, is to be avoided. Nothing good comes of it.

Re: “City Council Calls on Durham to “Resist Bigotry,” Recommit to Inclusive Values Ahead of Jordan Peterson's DPAC Show

Wow. This article and the pronouncements by the city council are so staggeringly contrary to reality it would be commical. Except these people, either through incredible ignorance or malevolance, are contributing to the degradaton of civil society and vulnerable human lives.

Prosecuting this attorney is a misuse of government resources at a minimum, and at a maximum is retaliatory prosecution that jeopardizes our legal system and constitutional guarantee of due process.

Re: “Raleigh Immigration Attorney Gets $2,510 Fine for Texting in Court

This is something I've never liked. Judges have far too much power in the legal system, which was never the intent of the system. A judge(or police officer) can berate and insult, but if they feel insulted they can charge you with a crime or throw you in jail. Feeling insulted isn't justification for legal charges or arrest which happens far too often.

Re: “A Raleigh Man Died of an Apparent Suicide While in Solitary Confinement at a For-Profit Immigration Prison in Georgia

#1. it isn't reported in this article. Was Mr. de la Rosa a legal resident?
#2. I know attacking ICE is currently politically popular among the left. But blaming ICE for two suicides and pneumonia death seems a bit much.
#3. I know from personal experience that many of the illegal immigrants are taken advantage of by Employers here in NC. Specifically through something I call SUB-MINIMUM WAGE LABOR. Meaning that Employers can effectively pay these people under minimum wage if they provide them housing, food, or both after deducting those expenses. Which leaves the immigrant completely beholden to the employer. Much like the mine owned towns of the appalacians who refused to pay their workers in legal currency. This is something that is never reported on and taboo to discus. But it is the reason that entire industries right here in NC refuse to hire American workers, and a direct cause of the disappearance of the middle class worker in NC.

Re: “On a Mission from God: A Wilmington Man Is Threatening to Sue if Orange County Doesn’t Remove Gay Pride Symbols from the Courthouse

Tim Oswald : The lawsuit in question clearly states,

" Mr. Fuller urges the elected officials to review the following US Supreme Court cases: McCreary County v. ACLU of Kentucky (2005) and County of Allegheny v. ACLU (1989). Government units may not favor one set of religious beliefs over another: this includes secular humanists movements like the acceptance same-sex eroticism which is counter to the Roman Catholic faith."

Re: “Raleigh Immigration Attorney Gets $2,510 Fine for Texting in Court

How is an attorney texting in the background causing a "disturbance"? It's clear what happened: an overzealous rent-a-cop wanted to exercise (abuse) his power, and ironically is the one who caused the disturbance; and this waste-of-time court proceeding; and waste of government resources. What a ludicrous prosecution this was.

This is actually a color film. The print has faded over the years.

Re: “Raleigh Immigration Attorney Gets $2,510 Fine for Texting in Court

Immigration Court rules plainly allow attorneys to use electronic devices to engage in business activities. I wonder whether the immigration court judge was simply seeking to harass a dedicated attorney to disrupt the defense of her client?

Re: “One More Round of Jordan Peterson Comments, Plus Some People Defend Chris Brown

"While citing the fact that he's a professor and other so-called credentials"

The original article never mentioned his academic background or credentials. That "so-called credential" is actually relevant to the truth of the situation of what is the actual purpose of the talk.

Ignoring it, and then labelling it "so-called" is flagrantly dishonest.

I expect more from a "so-called journalist"- it is painfully obvious that you feel free to be deliberately disingenuous. Shame on you.

Re: “On a Mission from God: A Wilmington Man Is Threatening to Sue if Orange County Doesn’t Remove Gay Pride Symbols from the Courthouse

@aiden & @edward teach. I never claimed the LGBT agenda or "humanism" to be a religion. Simply stated the obvious. The religious symbolism(mostly christian) that have been part of our public spaces for decades are being purged. While at the same time political agenda's are being promoted within our public spaces. I understand the current political climate yet having courts promote the current political agenda seems wrong. I don't want politics having any place in our courts.
