The law in the case is completely boring. Nigger Otis Lee Rodgers requested a lawyer for his appeal and was denied. The state courts all upheld the ruling, but the 9th Circuit said that the refusal violated "clearly established Federal law, as determined by the Supreme Court." The Supreme Court yesterday sent the case back to the 9th basically saying, "We never said that." Completely uninteresting as far as legal news goes.
The fun part of this story is all the chimpology going on in the facts of the case.
In 2003, Otis Lee Rodgers pistol-whipped his monkey wife in front of witnesses, while he was out on bail for another crime. As he was over the age of 5, he had numerous felony convictions, and was charged with "nigger in possession of a firearm," plus assault and terrorist threats and all sorts of chimping. At all of his preliminary hearings, he represented himself. He signed all the required paperwork waiving his right to counsel. You can't just go to court and say you want to represent yourself. You have to jump through hoops to do it, and Rodgers did.
But, later, Rodgers decided to hire himself a lawyer. For a while. He then fired the lawyer, and went through all the legalese niggamarole to represent himself, again.
What happens next? He demanded to have a court-appointed attorney. They court gave him one. What happens next? He fired that lawyer, too, and went once more through all the niggamarole to represent himself.
After he was quickly and very easily coonvicted, he made a motion for a new trial, and requested a lawyer to help him file the motion and the appeals. The judge finally said and denied his request.
Ain't that just like a nigger? Waived his rights to counsel THREE SEPARATE TIMES, IN WRITING, and then filed an appeal claiming he was denied his right to counsel. It reminds me of niggers several years ago who showed up to skoo for 12 years to eat lunch, muh-dik each other, and sell drugs, and then when they get a diploma that they can't read, they sue the school for denying them an education.
The case is Marshall v. Rodgers. Totally boring law, totally hilarious niggerology.
