The Hon. Rudolph Randa has--once again--delivered a body-blow to the Court of Star Chamber gang: Chisholm, Schmitz, and three minor-league thugs.
The stakes are quite high; Chisholm et.al. are now subject to PERSONAL liability for expenses incurred by the aggrieved--and damages, too!
Over the last couple of decades, the term "prosecutorial over-reach" has become better-known. (One example here).
When (not "if") the plaintiffs win their lawsuit, there will be a Big Chill in the ranks of the law enforcers who, in a lot of cases, are merely self-aggrandizing popinjays on power-trips. Some of those are political power-trips, as in the case at hand. Others are 'criminal' power-trips.
The Rule of Law has almost disintegrated under the Obozo regime. Perhaps Randa's action will begin the long, slow, climb back to a Constitutional Republic.
We can hope, eh?

I doubt it will change until the John Doe law is changed. If it's not, it will be abused again.
I was thinking national rather than local; the civil suit will be allowed under Federal law.
Some DA's read the newspaper.
