American jurisprudence: Fair, reasonable, following the rule of law and delivering the best chance for justice anywhere, right?
Well, how about a Texas district court case in which there are allegations a judge threatened a participant, ordered that his assets be seized, told him he was not allowed to hire defense counsel and then pronounced he had the full power of the Navy, Army and Marines to enforce his will?
Those are the allegations contained in a case pending before the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that by the description of a volunteer attorney working on arguments should "shock the conscience" of the nation.
The bottom line appears to be whether the judiciary is prepared to rein in one of its own after accusations the judge apparently conspired to strip a long list of constitutional rights from a case participant.

Another judge with delusions of tyrannical power.
As November 4, 2008 demonstrated, the Nation no longer has a conscience. In its place it has a gimmie complex. Particular when it comes to someone else’s property.
That’s some fast skimming of the article there, champ.
Alas, Judgie Poo does have tyrannical powers. Also has the personality of Caligula and enough delusions to stock a locked ward at the local asylum for the mentally deficient/deeply deluded.
It is getting so hard to tell what is satire and what is not anymore.
No satire tag so for now I will conclude it is true.
Yes, a judge who thinks they commsand the military should be in that asylum.
I took a look at the litigant's site linked by WND. I got suspicious when I saw posted his claims, but hardly anything by the court.
WND doesn't always report all of the facts.
I'm holding fire on this until more comes out.
WND is not necessarily the definitive source of factual information. Always entertaining, though.
World Net Daily - need to turn your filters on full.
I read that springer-lyle article (republished from law.com) and some of the court documents. One really odd thing about the springer/law.com article is that the defendant really had only 3 lawyers (according to the case record), not 20+. You have to consider the source—Law.coms readers and advertisers are the legal profession, so law.com is not going to criticize them in their article, especially in this case where there are a number of influential lawyers and judges involved.
In the case documents, one of the lawyers states that the defendant is being framed in a scheme to fleece him of his assets and money. You can usually figure out the real story by following the money. In this case, the lawyers involved received around $7 million dollars. It looks like the lawyers did get paid, and got paid a lot.
Neither the law.com article nor the wnd.com article covers all the facts, but something very fishy is going on here. Someone needs to conduct a follow the money investigation.
Another legal scam and misuse of power is stealing assets in probates of wills. We think we see the sleaze of the legal profession in the form of frivolous lawsuits but the bigger issue is behind the scenes skulduggery of billing unreasonable and false legal fees, the illegally seizing of assets, etc. Some lawyers are similar to the government - they think the clients money is theirs to take.
