Now theres the small matter of the LUNATIC judge at the original trial,what to do about him as this isn't the only mad blunder this man has made in recent years.What can be done to get him the sack,assuming judges can be sacked (please someone tell me they can if they're mad as a hatter like this one is). A campaign perhaps?
Actually, I think that we, as a cycling fellowship, owe a measure of gratitude to the original trial judge. If he had thrown the case out at the original hearing, the chances are that:
a) the case would have been ignored in the national media;
b) thousands of cyclists would would not have felt aggrieved and galvanised into action;
c) the CTC would not have received a huge amount of spin-off publicity;
d) the action would not have resulted in case law to all cyclists' benefit.
So, my hat goes off to Mr Cadden for his strength of character, to the CDF for backing him, to the expertise of the legal team and to District Judge Bruce Morgan who has made all of this possible!
