The Judicial System – a cornerstone of our nation, designed to protect individuals and to ensure equal treatment under the law. Yet upon scrutiny it seems to be eroding as quickly as our Executive and Legislative branches of government. Case in point, Article III federal judges are appointed for life during “good behavior”. They are appointed by the President of the United States and confirmed by the U.S. Senate in accordance with Article III of the United States Constitution. So can anyone explain how Senior Judges became part of our Federal Court System when they weren’t appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate? Or can you explain why these Senior Judges, who are retired volunteers, can pick what cases they want to work on while the Article III Judges have their cases assigned to them?
This new complaint filed in the US District Court for the Western District of Washington raises these and other questions of our federal court. It is based upon years of litigation, observation and frustration by those small law firms, solo practitioners, and pro se litigants who have had to go before the court in an attempt to get justice.
We will be posting court documents as they are filed so check back frequently for updates.
