Court Watch #4: A 495 Year old Manuscript Recovered
Spanish Conquistadors, Unpaid Influencers, and...Pigs Butchers?
Welcome to the fourth issue of Court Watch. A belated Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. I hope you spent your holiday dinner avoiding talking about politics and instead used the finite time to wax poetically about the inherent limitations of the public’s access to its judicial proceedings which is both apolitical and indefensible. Court Watch is not saying a free PACER can bring together a divided country but we’re also not saying we shouldn’t try it out to see if it heals a fractured nation. We thought rallying around a match against Wales in the World Cup would have done it but we didn’t properly account for the power of Ryan Renyolds and a referee squad whose decision-making process is about as transparent as the shadow docket of the Supreme Court.
In this issue, we’ll cover the landscape of weekly court records from an alleged school shooting plot, an inside woman at the post office, corruption in a fire department, dogs and pigs, unpaid influencers, and a Spanish Conquistador, just to name a few.
