KWAME LOSES #1: Effingham County
Yesterday, a judge in Effingham County heard arguments back and forth on whether or not to stay Tom DeVore’s Effingham County cases. The judge ruled against the defendants – the State of Illinois – and said the case will move forward. Oral arguments on objections will be heard on May 2, 2023.
DeVore’s subpeonas to the Illinois Sheriffs Association and Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police were quashed but the judge gave DeVore and opportunity to fix the errors they contained and refile them, so those organizations may not be off the hook just yet.
KWAME LOSES #2: McHenry County
If Effingham County was a loss for Kwame, the Northern District of Illinois Court was a certifiable judicial caning of Kwame the Magnificent. Kwame requested to transfer the McHenry County case out of state court into federal court.
Then, in a stunt NOT well received, Kwame asked the federal court judge to move for a judgement based upon the pleading based on a LACK OF STANDING. The judge flat out asks them why they took it to federal court if they thought the fed court lacked standing. He ordered Kwame’s counsel to APPEAR IN PERSON at a April 3 hearing. The judge also talked about sanctions, etc. Judge Johnston is not amused by Kwame playing games and it’s going to be a priceless event. Hopefully (and I’ll admit I’m not fluent in federal court procedures) it will be streamed live online (at least the audio). This one will be one you’ll want to hear.
Read this. It’s brutal.
Sorry for not bringing these up sooner. Kiddo brought something home from daycare and I’m a little miserable.
