We called it earlier today when we wrote “Kwame may appeal directly to the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals to reverse this preliminary injunction…” Sure enough. Kwame the Klown (h/t to a commenter) filed a motion with the 7th Circuit this afternoon.
Nevermind that they are in recess until May 17th.
Nevermind that going around the district court judge has a much higher burden for the movant – in this case the State of Illinois – to succeed.
It’s getting good.
Unless something exceptional happens, it’s unlikely the 7th Circuit will have a panel assembled short of Thursday or Friday.
Anyway, you might have guessed that we’re picking over the Kwame’s latest pleading. By the way, you can read it here… all 54 pages.
Psst: Don’t tell anyone, but we’re going to try to revisit some of the State’s arguments from the Naperville case and use them against Kwame in this setting.
