NOM’s filing was a mess

Timothy Kincaid

Last week the National Organization for Marriage sued in Federal court, claiming that they should not be subject to Rhode Island’s political expenditure disclosure laws. The court was not impressed (Boston Globe)

U.S. District Judge Mary Lisi said that the lawsuit from the National Organization for Marriage is disorganized, vague and poorly constructed. The judge said the relevant allegations were “buried” in the lawsuit.

Lisi dismissed the lawsuit, but said the group has the option to refile it by Wednesday.

Why am I not surprised.

I want to see if Brian Brown calls this justice ‘activist’ too, for throwing out their case.
Her ‘bias’ I’m pretty certain, will be mentioned.
All the judges who don’t rule in NOM’s favor are all shills for the ‘militant homosexual agenda’.

Stay tuned.
He might not mention it at all. But considering that he writes a newsletter twice a week sometimes trumpeting what they think are triumphs just for FILING briefs, it’s always interesting to see how a failure on their part will be spun.

But Maggie Srivastav says that NOM spends money on very expensive lawyers.

I guess they need to spend more!

What, is this grammar school?

The teacher gives your book report on Lake Titicaca back so that you can correct all of the spelling and grammar errors and resubmit it on Friday?

Why are the courts giving them more time for incompetency?

In legalese what happened is that the filing was dismissed “without prejudice” which means that the judge ruled that there were technical problems with the filing, problems that the plaintiff could correct. It happens all the time. That’s to be contrasted with dismissal “with prejudice” which means that the plaintiff didn’t present a substantive case and nothing could rescue the filing.

Was that filing another James Bopp, Esq. production?
