In the interest of keeping WCF readers fully abreast of all developments surrounding the Matthew Stewart Shootemup Case, we'll highlight this morning's Standard-Examiner story, which amounts to a followup to a couple of Northern Utah media stories which we featured on 7/21/12, involving the related civil forfeiture action, wherein Weber County lawyers are attempting to seize Mr. Stewart's residential property:
In a bizarre plot twist, Mr. Gurrister reports this:
...in his motion filed Tuesday, Weber County Attorney Dee Smith wrote that Swenson was more emotional at that meeting than DeCaria was.Are Weber County lawyers seriously contending that Ms. Swenson has an emotional bias which would operate to Stewart's detriment in this matter?
Smith’s motion suggests that, following Swenson’s line of reasoning, she should be disqualified from the case.
This strikes us as a grade-school litigation tactic, merely designed to confuse the issues, folks.
So what do our Gentle Readers have to say about this?
