Judge: Transsexual inmate should recoup legal fees

Taxpayers already are on the hook for a transsexual wife killer’s sex-change operation, and now the federal judge who stuck them with that tab said in a rare weekend decision yesterday that Michelle Lynne Kosilek also is entitled to be reimbursed by the state for years of legal bills.

The bottom line “is likely to be large,” according to the memorandum issued yesterday by U.S. District Court Chief Judge Mark L. Wolf. The amount could be disclosed as soon as Thursday — the deadline Wolf has set for Kosilek’s legal team to submit a suggested bill to the court.

“Kosilek has prevailed on his claim that (the Department of Correction) has violated his Eighth Amendment rights (against cruel and unusual punishment) and is continuing to do so,” Wolf wrote. “Therefore, he is eligible to be awarded his reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs.”

This is because Congress doesn’t use it’s power to impeach judges.

Homosexual Mark L. Wolf works for Satan.
Those who support homosexuals are against our Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ.
These anti Christ people only bring destruction on us ALL.
I have NO sympathy for homosexuals!

Homosexuality is a "Mark" of disobedience.
Someone once asked The answer is in the definition of "REPROBATE". And the reason"why" is given in the Bible.

God has a cure for homosexuals.

“More on Judge Wolf:

U.S. District Judge Mark Wolf dismissed a
lawsuit by outraged parents whose children attend the
Lexington, Massachusetts elementary school, where 6-year-
olds were subjected to a story (under the circumstances, one
hesitates to call it a fairy tale) about a prince who falls in love
with another prince, and they get married and live
happily/gaily ever after.

In his decision, Judge Wolf wrote that public schools
are “entitled to teach anything that is reasonably related to
the goals of preparing students to become engaged and
productive citizens in our democracy.”
Families don’t even have a right to pull their kids from
indoctrination sessions, because allowing parents to opt out
“could send the message that gays, lesbians, and the children
of same-sex parents are inferior and, therefore, have a
damaging effect on those children,” Wolf wrote.

Two options:

1. Tell the judge to F/O.

2. Impeachment.

Judge has no way to force the state to pay to costs of the sex change nor the legal bills.

Maybe the prisoner has agreed to be a friend with benefits for this judge and they can have conjugal visits.

To make judgments like this judge is doing would make me think that he is a sick twisted puke.

If by God's grace the Republicans should win control of the House, Senate and White House this November they should impeach and remove a large number of Federal judges and get enough guts to say that certain laws can not be ruled on in Federal court.

This judge should be impeached for gross stupidity.

What would the prisoner do with the money — is the judge planning to spring him once he gets it?

I'm guessing it's for attorney fees.

Hmmm....doesn’t sound right to me...what difference does it make whether the prisoner pays his legal fees or not?

No, I’m thinking once the money is paid the judge will find a reason to release the prisoner.
