A clerk answering the phone in Chicago says the composition of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit's panel hearing oral arguments in the Wisconsin John Doe cases will be made public at 8:30 A.M.
This means citizens wondering which appellate judges will help decide the future of campaign finance, the rule of law, and whether Scott Walker is above the law won't know who the judges are until tomorrow morning.
Tuesday afternoon, September 9, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit
will hear oral arguments slated to begin at 2:30 on several cases
related to the John Doe probe including whether
documents will be released, and whether U.S. District Judge Rudolph Randa erred when Randa halted the probe on May 6 this year in his spectacularly corrupt ruling.
The late notice of the composition of the panel, the clerk said, is due to routine security concerns.
As for Randa, make no mistake his decision halting the John Doe probe is not misguided or overzealous as some have said, Randa's decision is corrupt and calls into question his fitness to continue serving as federal judge.
