no argument on that point....
Tue Jun 01, 12:45 observation is focused on what appears to me as improper wording on the part of a justice sitting on the bench. Especially as he obviously leaned in one direction. As a Judge or Justice in his position, should he not be presenting both sides fairly or is he actually in a position to favour one side or the other and thus make a legal or just decision on his own viewpoint?

Further examination indicates strong bias and so I am looking for the support of his legal position.

              Joyce, you are referring to his decision in the hearing. Yes, he is leaning in one direction. That was his job, after hearing all the facts, to lean in one direction or the other. You just happen to n... more
