This particular court ruling leaves more unanswered questions than it does answers. Contributory negligence so that one can not collect in a suit against the government when there are some very distinct questions and when no evidence of a felony was found makes one very much question such a finding. You asked me to do the research when it was up to you and as for the "research" would you be kind enough to post where this research comes from? All we have at present is an unsourced quote. Without the full transcriy at least availabel from some other verifiable source we have a possibly biased conclusion.
If this is not a court transcript then we must question it further. Also what did the appeals court say?
This is the final court doc. Since I could not find any appeal, I think there was none.

"You asked me to do the research when it was up to you"
Is quite puzzling. I just simply asked you to back up your statement. Please refer to my previous post #284 on this thread. Since when, in the accepted rules of debate, is it encumbent on me to prove your point? Sort of bass ackwards harpseal.
Perhaps you would desire me to prove a negative (i.e. prove that it didn't happen). I would then simply provde you with link to the Towson Times and Baltimore Sun archives in which you could see that there is no mention of this alleged killing. You could, for that matter, search the Washington Times as well as it would probably make news in DC as well.
I simply asked you to provide SOME verifiable proof to buttress your claim that the BATF shot and killed someone in Towson, MD in the 1990's. You asked for two weeks. That was five weeks ago. I'm not going to "mail you a check" for the time it takes you to back up some nebulous claim. If you don't have the proof don't make the statement. If it was an incorrect statement simply say so. Otherwise you simply appear, at least in my humble opinion, to be full of hot air. You can bust my chops all you want harpseal but it won't make an incident occur when it didn't.
Let me distill this even further. YOU made a claim. I said it was bunk, called you on it, and asked you to prove it. You can't. Period.
