Re: Sov Citizens want yuuge amount of money

I have trouble remembering her real name but I believe that Anna was - once upon a time - a genuine rural judge for a small claims/traffic/justice of the peace court. In some sparsely populated states or areas, where lawyers are very few, the very low level cases - such as traffic cases and small ci...

Re: Bogus IRS calls

These guys frequently manage to use a DC area code caller ID (area code 202) - which, if you bother to call, takes for goddam ever to ring, rings a long time before it's answered - it's actually a series of relay numbers (as in Three Days of the Condor) that eventually rings in India.

Re: Your Bond is No Good

The Bond novels portrayed James Bond as a professional assassin with ice water in his veins. To that extent, Timothy Dalton most convincingly resembled the character in the books. Fleming was also very particular about describing gourmet dinner menus. As for the Lisa Goff case that started this thre...

Re: Let's Get Rid Of Tax Court

Decisions of the US Tax Court are appealable. The Tax Court is an Article I court created by Congress, and one of the very very few courts (the Court of Veterans Claims is another) where nonlawyers may represent litigants. The decisions of the Tax Court generally articulate the reasoning for the dec...

Re: WFS has a new star - David Merrill!

'Positive law' means the words actually enacted by Congress. Invariably this would mean the text in the Statutes at Large. When the United States Code was first worked up, circa 1924, the individual sections of all the statutes known to be of lasting and general application were organized and rearra...

I spent quite a bit of time ferreting out the legal significance of "lawful money" and the definition offered by Investopedia is simply wrong. While the precise definition seems to vary from economist to economist, from lawyer to lawyer, it is not something that excludes FRNs or legal tend...

Re: If I Can't Hire My Own Reporter, I Won't Show!

About the only hope the court reporter has of making ends meet is having a virtual monopoly on producing transcripts of the trial. Yes, they are costly. But if there is competition with price wars, the official reporters may simply quit altogether and leave the participants to hire their own indepen...
