Guilty is as guilty does.

Ethics
In the Recent opinion and order by Judge Berman on the  Nee, Messinetti action, Judge berman and walsh are equally guilty of racketeering. But if it is the government breaking the law, it must be ok?

The U.S. Supreme Court has instructed federal courts to follow the continuity-plus-relationship test in order to determine whether the facts of a specific case give rise to an established pattern. Predicate acts are related if they "have the same or similar purposes, results, participants, victims, or methods of commission, or otherwise are interrelated by distinguishing characteristics and are not isolated events." (H.J. Inc. v. Northwestern Bell Telephone Co.) Continuity is both a closed and open ended concept, referring to either a closed period of conduct, or to past conduct that by its nature projects into the future with a threat of repetition.

What is this outsider babbling about? Are scraps from the internet gathered by some twelve year old supposed to mean something? Does someone have proof of enterprise corruption or RICO violations? Take your proof to the dozens of federal and state agencies that would love to investigate, indite, prosecute, convict and imprison every UBC functionary. Opinions, feelings, and suppositions aren't proof.
When this outsider is old enough to drink let the outsider go to a bar; in the interim drugs and obscenity in the bathroom may, hopefully, keep the outsider from trying to distract us from the renewal of our union.
