Oh yes. The magistrate in yesterday’s court is INDEED ‘the law’. What he says, goes.
When he said to Bill’s lawyer, ‘I’ll make the decisions here,’ he meant it.
And what he probably meant was, ‘Don’t come in here with your juvenile attempts at bullying me or your ex-wife or anyone else. I’ve been hearing cases of abuse in the Domestic Violence Court 22 for longer than I care to think about. And I know EVERY trick. And you guys are amateurs. Bill — the FACT that you’re a lawyer, the FACT that you BROUGHT a lawyer with you, the FACT that you act all obsequious in my court while your ex-wife stands proud and states the facts — THESE facts mean YOU are NOT the LAW.’
He served the protection order with no revisions. And also pre-issued a ready-signed warrant for the arrest of Bill Morris for any transgressions of the many clauses in the protection order.
