How to Remove a Judge - Ken Smith Appeal Brief

How to Remove a Judge - Ken Smith Appeal Brief

Ratings: (0)|Views: 1,000 |Likes:
Published by Bob Hurt
Attorney Ken Smith sued numerous Colorado federal judges for violating his due process rights. The court predictably dismissed his cases. Now he sues 3 district and 8 appeals judges in this majestically disdainful and derisive appeals brief, making the point that the nation's founders intended that private parties prosecute public officer crimes against them, and that they need not beg Congress to impeach the judge for not showing "good behavior." No gag writer could have more masterfully called the judges to account for their abuses of him. This document shows the answers of 4 of the defendants and Ken's reply to their answer. If you support Ken's efforts to excise crooked judges from government, open up your wallet and send him a donation. Few deserve it as he does.
