Listen to yourself. Been there, done that, got the whoppin' huge fine...
He should have burned a flag, no fine or problem there...
I'm surprised it even got read. When I was in my early 20s I signed my check to the utility company Donald Duck on a dare from a friend. I continued to sign the checks to the utility company the same for over two years and not one of them got returned.
I had to have some work done on my little Ford wagon, and wrote a check to the mechanic. My wife was reconciling the bank statement a couple of weeks later, and in an icy tone, inquired about that particular check.
I never wrote "Escort Service" on the memo line again.
Uh-oh... If they ever read the memo line on my utility bills, I'm in big trouble.
Any chance Time Warner-AOL won't notice, for instance, last month's payment for Emperor Turner's involuntary retirement party? Or the previous one for the Warner Endowment for Copkilluh Thugz? Or the Liberal Jihad?
I have wanted to do the same thing! Berkley and especialy Royal Oak use parking ticket revenue to run the damn cities.
I did the same thing once, in a cryptic sort of way...........
If that remark constitutes contempt, this court is indeed contemptible. And what about the wussy staffer who first noticed it and referred it up the ladder for more attention. What a waste of protoplasm.
Michigan, overall, has okay judges, provided you avoid the socialist peckerheads in the liberal cities. Looks like this guy got caught in a liberal t*twringer court.
Michigan recently rescinded all dueling laws. I'd go ahead and smack this marxist blackrobe with a glove and tell him to meet me behind the courthouse at dawn. And don't forget your sword. Ten bucks is ten bucks.
Somebody get me a Maker's Mark!
I am sorry, but his royal supreme excellence, his highness, Richard Eshman this pantload of pompousity, hisself is not a member of the judiciary, but an insignificant piece of a government bureaucrat. However offended he is, contempt of him is not contempt of court.
It's time to resurrect the concept of tarring and feathering government officials who grossly misuse the powers we the People have given them.
The contempt of court charge is an additional proof that his comment was a correct diagnosis...this is a BS Money Grab...
Update (I can only post the link)
In short, the guy apologized, wrote a new check and the contempt charge was dismissed.
