Baltimore Judge Denies State Attorney Marilyn Mosby Motion for Gag Order…

We know this is pointing out the obvious, but can you imagine what would happen if the district attorney or prosecutor in the Mike Brown shooting asked a Ferguson judge for a gag order and a motion to hide the autopsy? The hypocrisy of the professionally aggrieved is jaw dropping.

marilyn mosby 7BALTIMORE – The judge presiding over the prosecution of six Baltimore Police officers involved in the arrest of Freddie Gray struck the state’s motion for a gag order in the case.

Judge Charles J. Peters ruled the motion lacked standing in an actual proceeding, as it was filed by Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby’s office in Circuit Court on May 14. At that time, the officers’ cases were still in District Court. They weren’t transferred to Circuit Court until May 21, when the officers were indicted.

Rochelle Ritchie, a Mosby spokeswoman, declined to say whether the state planned to file a new gag order motion, which Peters’ ruling did not preclude.

“We’re not going to litigate this case in the media and discuss our trial strategy,” Ritchie said.

[…] The attorneys for the six officers had asked the court to strike the state’s gag order motion on procedural grounds.

Nineteen media outlets, including The Baltimore Sun, also filed a motion opposing the gag order.  (read more)

    LOL, more proof of Mosby’s incompetence and ignorance of the law.

    She accused the defense attorneys of filing their motion with the wrong court…

    …but it was her office that filed with the wrong court 🙂

      Mosby even went so far as to make this ridiculously outlandish claim in the reply to the defense’s motion for her recusal:

      “While this begs the question of why the Defendants sought Circuit Court relief from the District court, the answer is all too obvious: harsh rhetoric designed to generate negative pre-trial publicity about the prosecutors in order to taint the grand jury and petit jury pool.”

      She’s a prosecutor who doesn’t even know basic concepts like conflict of interest and jurisdiction. She doesn’t know the difference between a Terry stop and an arrest. She doesn’t know that the Baltimore officers enforce Baltimore city law as well as state law. And she seems to think she can assume the role of judge and declare that the thugs that were arrested were punished enough.

      Frankly, she has no business being a prosecutor.

        “Frankly, she has no business being a prosecutor.”

        When Mosby ran for States Attorney, she was a political novice who had no money, no major endorsements, no campaign signage or literature, and no name recognition – just like her husband Nick. She also had very little if any criminal law experience. What propelled her into office was the BGI in Baltimore (consists of social justice and shakedown ministers, NAACP, former and current politicians) could not allow the office of the top prosecutor to be occupied by someone who wasn’t black in a city that is majority black and in which every major position (elected or appointed) is held by someone who is black. She defeated Gregg Bernstein, who was Jewish, who in turn had defeated a woman who was just as incompetent and unprofessional as Mosby by the name of Patricia Jessamy (known around town as “Plea Bargain Pat”).

        As far as tainting the jury pool, hopefully the jury will be bused in like in Casey Anthony’s case from another county & wouldn’t likely be tainted as Mosby is claiming Baltimore would be if there isn’t a gag order. Seems she doesn’t see this coming for the change of venue either.

    Let’s see…..
    She charged several of the B6 with an “illegal” arrest. That charge never resurfaced as she had no legal standing to pursue it with any expectation of proving that.

    Next, she claimed the knife was “legal” under MD. Law. OOPS…Arresting PO cited Balt Code. So, suddenly, her office releases a statement that the knife os not central to the case.

    She files a motion for a gag order in the wrong court. Judge was quite “kind” in wording of the ruling, IMO, dispite her filing a motion in the wrong court & the Judge even having to take time to review it. She should take that mild admonisment as a “learning” experience to shape up or ship out.

    There are extenuating circumstantial evidence of “conflicts of interest” , but she refuses to recuse herself.

    She made numerous prejudicial statements in direct violation of MRPC 3.8.

    She claims she does not intend to “litigate this case in the Media”, yet her every move is to highlight her own standing within the community & “obtain Justice by any means”.

    She claims to have an “experienced” staff of veteran Prosecutors, yet none of them seem capable of providing her with any useful insight on proper Lawyering. Can one even imagine what an ordeal a trial will be for these “veterans” under her guidence, direction, and demands?

    Like I stated in a previous post…This Judge has 24 years of Prosecutor experience verses her 5 months OTJ. He is not going to be tolerant of her ineptitude for very long.

    She has embarrassed herself & the image of the SA Office . Nevertheless, she intends to “go down swinging” on this one. Guess she believes it will be a cake walk like when she stood before Judge Judy.

    Guess she was pre-occupied with the Prince concert & that funky Black Circus. Yah…that’s what is was….

    She is in for a very rude awakening, me thinks…..She is not going to be “center stage” in front of this Judge. Maybe time for her to brush up on her Law School notes ( hope they weren’t in cursive…LOL)

          2) It also implies that others were investigating the death, and though they were, Mosby has prevented them from making their own “independent” findings by withholding the autopsy report from them as well.

          Did she study for her law degree in Perugia, Italy under that freakshow prosecutor? It is as if she’s using some other country’s version of Due Process.
          Has she no copy of the basic Court Rules for MD anywhere near her desk? Even I, as a legal secretary, would have been able to know which court to file my boss’ pleadings by simply looking it up in the court rules book. Duh… Oh, wait..

Affirmative Action solves nothing.

    You do not loft someone into a feather-bed position of power unless that person has gone through all the battles, taken all the scars, learned all the lessons taught through experience that make him/her sufficiently resilient to go beyond race, creed and color to respect the rights our country has fought long and hard for — way beyond our borders.

    Residents of Hyde Park, Chicago, where our Prez and his Lady lived and she spent so much time closing down the emergency services for the out-lying community, are now picketing for the U. of Chgo to open (re-open) a trauma care center as the closest ones for all the multitudes who are killing one another in that area are 30-minutes away on a good day. Her Highness and the minions that helped closed the U. of C. emergency facilities should be charged with treason.

    Like my dad said, in the end nothing we do will make any difference. They are what they are. Given the chance, far too many will jump back into that grievance pool and start the “wobble dance” in unison. It is “their people” vs “our people”. (in a mixed race society what does that really mean? Ideology?)

    While we spent generations trying to teach our kids color makes no difference, they spent their energy reminding their kids color is EVERYTHING and it is not genealogy- but by choice.

    You can educate them, give them an opportunity to actually seek the truth of history (I mean seriously pick up a book NOT recommended by your commie professor for once, get a degree in STEM and not black social justice studies, realize any profiling done by police is BECAUSE of the actions of your shthad brethren.) and give them a leg up with affirmative action, PC, etc. and they STILL want to crush people not like them in color and ideology.

    The trouble with being older is having to remember “how it used to be” and realize it is the same- again. I feel like the Jews in Israel must feel when they bend over backwards for the Palestinians and then turn on the TV and see a Palestinian children show with puppets beheading Jews.

    I’m sure it is perception, but it used to be for every one bad guy black I saw a hundred good guys. Now I see the percentage flipping. I sense the good guys are just keeping their heads down because they don’t want to be targeted too. Much like the Muslim bloggers getting murdered in the streets (and that is coming here so be ready).

    Think about that, they are targeting us? How is that allowed to happen? Oh, yeah, President Lightgiver and his promise of post racial harmony. And he got reelected!

    Like I said, they will never be happy. Even if they won, dominated everything and ran the nation. They would screw it up, and then blame “whitey” somehow, like the media blaming the first Republican governor in decades, who was in office for five months, for Baltimore.

    She said that her #1 priority was to go after repeat criminals.

    She also stated that she wanted to build trust between the police and the local citizens.
