"Whether the act done by him was judicial or not is to be determined by its character, and not by the character of the agent. Whether he was a county judge or not is of no importance. The duty of selecting jurors might as well have been committed to a private person as to one holding the office of a judge. . . . That the jurors are selected for a court makes no difference. So are court-criers, tipstaves, sheriffs, &c. Is their election or their appointment a judicial act?" Id., at 348.
Mark Lindquist - Ethics
Stephen D. Trinnen and Daniel R. Hamilton are two of the lawyers in Prosecutor Mark Lindquist's ethically-challenged office who perpetuate the problem. They are defending Judge Stanley Rumbaugh for refusing to allow camera access in his courtroom in direct and blatant contravention of Washington GR 16, and they are lying their butts off to do so. We are simply not going to tolerate it, and complaints are being lodged with the State Bar, The Judicial Overseers and in Federal Court for Fraud upon the Court. Take a look.
Oh is that how it is your honor? I don't think so. We started this lawsuit several months ago and I am now filing it Friday.
Anyway you get to tell us the way it is, but in America we also get to tell YOU the way it is, in an arguably impartial courtroom setting. You were obviously not impartial with respect to my brother Wally Brown or to me and that is why I'll make sure everything about this lawsuit is set to YouTube and I don't care if I have to get a decree from God. Not even Donald Trump would agree with this sort of Civil Rights violation and you should be ashamed at your misconduct.
I've been running courtroom video since 1996 so I'm not about tolerate this sort of abuse, not from you and not from anybody. See you in Court, with cameras Your Honor.
The first journal entry from 8 August, 2016. I see the State is busy watching. I am filing today.
