NOTICE of Appeal is not the same as the appeal. That means an appeal is coming and you must inform the court within a limited time period. An appeal is intended to be filed AT THIS TIME (SIGA can change their mind in the future).
And I can also tell him to FO also.... what's your point? Oh, and it is Bush's fault for weakening healthcare. Let's see how fast this board will devolve into a useless board.
I will try not to be mean or silly about replying, but do you really believe in what you write?
So riddle me this, if they wanted to agree with lower court, why take 120+days to just say I agree !!! Or in this case, March 10 so 70+ days (from Chief Justice having a fake #$%$ for 60 days). So they going to wait another 90 days for a "we agree with lower court."
THAT AFFIRM TAKES 20 DAYS OR LESS !!!
So just for the record ..... Please confirm to everyone on the board that this "dilly dally" is a NORMAL thing in your opinion? I want it for the record ....
RIIIIIIIGHT !!! I forgot, and their normal schedule is to go 90 days, then give some BS excuse on the 90th day and then go another 66 days and counting .....
Real normal right? No one is implying that they should go according to my schedule, but for a court that brags about concluding cases 50 days or less, something is fishy .... but you apologists keep throwing some "its a procedural, its the toilet clogging, oh they meeting" .....
The #$%$ is about to hit the fan FOR BOTH COMPANIES and so beware my long friends ..... I analysis possibilities from what HAS happened factually ..... I do not make excuses for these guys ....
So according to Alibi4sail, they must really really be losing sleep over SIGA because so many opinions and writers and deep thoughts and first impressions .....
What a load of hoooey! They average about 1 opinion every 2-3 days.....
They eat, sleep get fat without missing a beat. The only way they do this is that most of the time, they already know how they will decide a case before hand ..... not after some deep soul searching!!!
Riddle me this:
1. Why wait until day 90 to tell us the chief justice had a 4 hour #$%$ and was out 2 months (made up BS)
2. Why are we made to wait 66 days and counting when we already waited 90 days
3. Why are cases submitted in March already decided and SIGA v PIP, which was delayed by a phantom sickness of a phantom chief justice not moved to the top of the priority .... it was not like PIP got sick and did not show up for oral arguments.
For all those responding with generic .... it takes time for the court to do this and that ...., just look at how much they pump out and the dates on the opinions of the case already decided....
I hate these self righteous justices and lawyers ........
LOL, you are an attorney and you are telling me that judges read every brief, sit and examine "the law" and then make decision after careful consideration.
You are off your rocker !!! You never saw them make up their mind and then find cases to make it look legit? What law school did you go to? You ever clerked? Courtrooms are runned like fiefdoms so don't give me this holier than thou "law" process !!! GTFOH
Could you tell me that with a straight face?
"If the DE Supreme Court were a "meat factory and grind this stuff out" as you have stated, we would have had a decision long ago."
My point is that they are a meat factory and should have affirmed a long time ago. Path of least resistance and they are lazy. They did not, that is why there are inherent risks here !
"Each justice will read the transcript and the briefs of the parties."
You are joking right? Where did you pull this out of. They are lazy and they already have a slant on the case and outcome. They have their preference on what promissory estoppel should be already and whether it is good or bad doctrine. They don't read jack.
"Each justice will instruct one clerk to write a brief affirming Parsons' decision, and another to write a brief overturning the decision with reasons why."
I agree that some do this and most do not !!! too many cases and workload. This is text book procedure, not real life
"The justice will then read the briefs of the law clerks, and then decide which is the better reasoned brief, which complies with precedent of the court, and which to adopt as his own."
BS BS BS !!! lol, very funny. These clowns are not fresh out of law school. They already have a bearing as to what is ok with them and what is not !!! They already decided, they just looking for the proper justification to push towards their outcome. What you describe is what the books and common people think happens. The legal factory is a VERY different place. There is also politics going on.
Look, I am not trying to win one up on you, I am just telling you that what you see on TV and what really goes on will blow your mind. There is something funny going on and it AIN"T A STRAIGHT AFFIRM !!!
LOL, OMG, you still think this is some kind of solemn process .... let me burst your bubble. The clerk gives the judge guidance. There is a conference and then they have their clerks write it up. You act like it is one guy writing at a time !!! Or somehow they are rooting for a winner so they hold out. That only happens in landmark cases or death penalty. The DE court is a meat factory, they grind this stuff out !
So suppose it was to affirm without any adjustments? It takes 120+ days? In fact, let's say I agree with you that it goes through this "process". What is more likely is that they have to rebut most of Parson's decision and so need time to lay it out. IT DOES NOT TAKE LONG to have a majority of justice to concur at conference and cut and paste parson's decision (which happens 90% of the time. No need to find new ground to affirm, use the lower court opinion.) However, it does take longer to tell the lower court why they erred on a legal basis......
The goal is to read the outcome given the facts of what has not happened so far as to the timing. It is not to give reasons why they will affirm and to find the possibilities of why the affirmation is delayed. That is the difference between my hedging and your cheerleading.
ok, first off all, saying cross-appeal issues mean nothing..... most cases that go to appeal have cross appeal. Law clerks and writers for these judges can dispose of the cross appeals in a hurry. These are terms that laymen use to make up an excuse.
Secondly, whether it is 3-2 or 4-1, does not matter. You think they lose sleep at night for a 3-2 and spliit like a jury? .... :-D
These are professionals. They have no less than 50-60 cases on tap and oral arguments on average every week. This is not "12 angry men" or any other jury movie. This is not normal and so will be a lot of twists and turns.
That is why I am telling people to hedge. There is something strange here and it is not vanilla affirm. ALSO, anyone who believes the line about, oh, "our chief justice was out for 2 months after oral arguments and now is the date he got to listen to it ....." is a fool. Did he have an erection lasting longer than 4 hours and had to call his doctor? If you are sick for 2 months, then you should be replaced.
Funny but this court is a bunch of jackasses !!! It is now 120 days by the real calendar and 71 days by their fake excuse calender.
People need to hedge here, if you think this thing takes all this time just to be .. "ok, we agree", then I have a bridge to sell you.
Get your head out of the sand.
So now we have been getting opinions of cases argued in LATE MARCH. So now their lame excuse for a 2 month-sick Chief Justice is now past 60 days (more like 120 days) and cases submitted in March approaching April have been decided !!!!
Bunch of lame good for nothing lifers ...........
YOU Lazy good for nothing M*&&^% sob, piece of #$%$ ..... 2 months after. Legal f*&^^^% fiction of having been submitted 2 months. Who the *&&^% needs a chief justice.
Let me get this straight, this ONLY makes sense if there had been other cases delayed. Here the same cast of clowns have been pumping out decisions. So now they want to make it into some kind of sickness.... and listen to it 2 months after it was argued?
Total lie and fudging of the record. Of course they can fast track it. Every few days, we see a decision. Last week, they pumped out a case actually argued on March 5. LIE LIE LIE .....
IF IF, it is true, then the Chief Justice is a JACKASS ...... nobody takes a 2 months wait or vacation. Who the hell is he anyway?
That is why I am doubtful of this. This is not a personal attack, I am just saying it doe snot make sense. On the other hand, these A-holes think they are God's gift........
As a test, who is suppose to be the Chief Justice anyway that is on your document?
End The Misery !!!
I thought Delaware was to be the more sophisticated court. The most knowledgeable. These buffoons have already decided case argued after SIGA .......... I hoe to God they do not decide to make a new doctrine at my expense in DE......
I am not here to defend, but I would say that Ali's reply is fine and there is logic and reasoning to the reply so I am fine with it.
I do agree that 5 judges do take time to go back and forth .... but Parsons is not a good comparison. Parson was just slow. Or more to the point, his clerk was not good. Even so, that has nothing to do with the dynamics of the appeal.
I might add Ali, that they do not have to address every appeal issue directly. They can just affirm what Parsons did. They just need to address the issues where they think he error or applied the law correctly. I do not see anything landmark or setting precedent here which is why I am baffled at the timing. BUT at this point, I just want to get it over with ....... I am numb to this whole judicial process.
two more opinions came yesterday which were both reversed and remanded. One opinion was from oral argument on Jan. 10 and the other was Feb. 5.
So you guys still think now that we are in our 70th day (plus or minus) following these other cases, that it will be 100% affirmed ..... life goes on..... you better hedge for God sakes. For those who will listen and are investors and not just gambling.
Thank you. I am getting sick of looking everyday.... I have more than 30K shares riding and I just want to know for God sakes!
Stop this torture, anybody keeping day score?
