    Who are the NERD fund donors Mr Snyder?

    O SCOMI, SCOMI! Wherefore Art Thou SCOMI?

    Well, I do know this about SCOMI... on May 10th our SCOMI will be in what is perhaps the most despicable city in the nation.

    The 19th District Court will be closed to the public for one day on Tuesday, May 10, due to responsibilities in support of a visit of the Michigan Supreme Court to Dearborn...

    The local court will be closed as Dearborn welcomes the justices of Michigan's Supreme Court for a special educational program in which high school students observe as the justices hear oral argument on a pending case.

    Amazing, isn't it?  Our tax dollars are going towards supporting this debacle.

    If any of the seven SCOMI Justices decide to follow through with this planned visit of Dearborn, they will not be receiving my vote in the future.

    Yes, their names if so foolishly do attend, will be posted here...

    it may be part of their responsibilities.  And at the very least they can demonstrate how a court operation is properly performed.

    Maybe its a thinly veiled lesson for the Judge who cannot interpret the law properly?

    Three SCOMI Justices terms expire 1/1/13.  Marilyn Kelly, Stephen Markman and Brian Zahra.  If on May 10 they show in Dearborn.  They do not receive my vote.

    I really don't give a rats ass if their Dearborn excursion may be part of their responsibilities.  SCOMI's responsibilities to this voter and taxpayer are not with rewarding a visit to the chief buffoon and his kangaroo 19th district court that decides to entertain kiddies in the possibilities of being future ambulance chasers.

    SCOMI's responsibilities are with the Constitution.  Dearborn's 19th district court shredded it.  There was nothing thinly veiled about that.

    Appellate courts traveling to various locations throughout the state to hold court is really no big deal.  It happens from time to time, and it's a good thing for students and citizens to be able to watch court proceedings in person.  I don't read anything into the location (are we supposed to boycott Dearborn forever?).  From the Court's press release yesterday:

    LANSING, MI, May 2, 2011 - A Detroit man who claims self-defense in a shooting will have
    his case heard by  the  Michigan Supreme Court  on May 10, when the Court convenes in
    Dearborn for "Court Community Connections," a Supreme Court program aimed principally at high school students.

      The defendant in People v Richardson shot and seriously wounded two people during an altercation with his neighbors,
    who were standing outside the defendant's home. The defendant
    said that he feared for his wife and himself when one of the neighbors started hitting his screen
    door with a baseball bat. He was also fearful because of the neighbors; earlier hostility and
    because he believed that the two people he shot  had been drinking and taking drugs, the
    defendant asserted. A jury found the defendant - who had no prior criminal record - guilty of
    assault and felony-firearm; the Michigan  Court of Appeals affirmed  those convictions. On
    appeal, the defendant argues in part that the trial judge did not properly instruct the jury
    on the elements of self defense, particularly as to whether the defendant had a duty to retreat from the attack.

      The Supreme Court, which normally hears oral arguments at the Michigan Hall of Justice
    in Lansing, will hear oral argument in Richardson at  the Ford Community and Performing Arts
    Center. Students  and educators  from  Dearborn High, Fordson, Edsel Ford,  Divine Child,
    Riverside Academy, and Henry Ford Academy will attend the 12:15 p.m. court session in the
    Michael A. Guido Theater Auditorium. Students and teachers will study the case in advance with
    the help of local judges and attorneys. Following the argument, the students will meet with the
    attorneys in the case for a debriefing.

    teachers to list of pack wolves.  What ever happened to TEACHING government???  Instead, teachers are more interested in taking field trips to Cancun, Cedar Point, ball games and Chucky Cheese.  Why should the Mich Supreme Court have to take a field trip to the schools???  This is just pure laziness and political correctness gone amuk?

    I have no respect for either profession.  I have more respect for used car salesman than lawyers and teachers.  At least you know you are getting a line of BS from them.  To hide behind the guise of education for this road trip is just plain spitting in my eye and telling me it is raining.
