    So... here is one of my favorite quotes: Chester County Common Pleas Court Judge John L. Hall, writing an article for The Chester County Bar publication called "New Matter" (and which they ought to rename "Abuse of Discretion") is giving "trial tips" to lawyers: "Always dress well for court. It is safe to assume the lawyer wearing polyester, or something of the sort, has the burden of proof". I $hit you, not. I guess that‘s why I lost my inheritance to this Orphan‘s Court idiot. I couldn‘t afford silk.

    Interesting, and pretty much accurate. I had no idea so many judges would or could be tempted by social sites; very disappointing. They don‘t seem to realize that if you put it online, it‘s recorded and held in perpetuity in text form as solid as any written comment or article. These guys should really learn what they‘re doing and stay away from such place. And that‘s true even if you delete the post, which is next to impossible most of the time, after only a minute or so.

    I just love trading. Making money right in your own home while sipping coffee has never been this good. Interested in learning how? Google Superior Trading System to find out.

    Good. Now judges, especially family court and domestic relations court judges can be open to scrutiny for their biased rulings in custody and support cases, and their use of JUDICIAL TERRORISM to implement those rulings. It‘s about time judges, who have judicial immunity from being sued for money damages, and are protected by the bar associations, come under public scrutiny through social media. It was only a matter of time before the public could hit back against these public serpents.
