What do judges Carol Kuhnke and Glenn Devlin have in common? Aside from their names having same length, that both Glenn Devlin and Carol devil release defendants strictly guided by these judges' own perversity.
Last week Texas judge Glenn Devlin released several defendants shortly after losing his bid for re-election. In other words, he had one of those Carol Kuhnke episodes which was induced by enough voters not liking him.
Unlike Harris County, where judge Devlin failed to secure his judicial perpetuity, felon Kuhnke's re-election in Washtenaw County, Michigan, was not at risk this time. That is because every eligible lawyer inexplicably declined to contend against felon Kuhnke, whose deplorable history includes --but is not limited to-- getting busted for illegal possession of narcotics while her adopted son overdosed and was dying elsewhere (coincidentally, another victim of Carol Kuhnke's pattern of inept decision-making).
According to various sources reporting on this post-election issue, judge Devlin contented himself with the defendants' bare statement that they do not intend to kill anyone. That opposite of "judicial scrutiny" reminds me of the criminal contempt hearing for Personal Protection Order 15-941-PH (Washtenaw County Trial Court, Michigan), where incompetent judge Timothy Connors asked his dear respondent Maria Viggers, my father's second wife, whether she intended to continue messing up with my employment (as judge Connors "diligently" clarified: "I'm just saying. Going forward.").
(Side note: Three months later, in March of 2017, judge Connors inexplicably entertained that respondent's renewed attempts to unlawfully harm me.)
That is funny because I actually briefed on appeal (on page 23) my criticism of that aspect of Connors's incompetence. Judge Devlin's decision to personify two years later the absurdity I criticized back then is not a prophetical skill of mine, but a sign of the judiciary's relentless unfitness exacerbated by their corruption and excessive power.
Interestingly, judge Connors was the other incumbent in Wasthenaw County with the same luck as felon Kuhnke in these elections of November 2018: No eligible lawyer contended against him either. Something very bad must be dominating the Michigan courts that leaves these crooks' judicial ambitions completely and bizarrely undisturbed.
Glenn Devlin's reaction epitomizes the resentful tenant who purposefuly destroys the apartment from which he is about to get evicted. And the analogy is hard to miss: voters in Harris County decided to evict judge Devlin from the bench. But Devlin's pro-criminals retaliation is much more harmful than a resentful tenant's because thereby this judge has irresponsibly subjected the public to unwarranted danger by those who are being prosecuted for violent crimes including aggravated robbery. This not only constitutes unlawful retaliation against those voting for another candidate, but also treason against those who voted for him.
It will be ironic if it turns out that anyone who voted for judge Devlin has been or becomes a victim of the defendants that he capriciously released. This is the type of crooks who, abusing the absolute protections of judicial immunity, keeps dismantling the rule of the law. If this guy goes back to practice law, I think any prospective clients should seriously assess the chances that this resentful lawyer would deliberately mess up their cases if/when he gets sanctioned or disbarred.
Given the currently putrid state of the judiciary in the U.S., one has to concede that at least judge Devlin "tried" suggesting the defendants not to kill anyone. By contrast, felon Kuhnke is fond of releasing defendants without making even the slightest attempt to discourage them from resuming their unlawful activity. Of the two lawsuits I filed that were presided by this felon, she dismissed one of them and rushed out of the courtroom; and on the other one, she admittedly stayed in the courtroom but only to openly express her deplorable view that Michigan loves anybody who's powerful and that the rest of us have to stay out of the way as she favored the fraudulent and inconsistent defamer Al-Azhar Pacha.
Best wishes to Harris County voters with their new judge. Meanwhile, six more years of judicial debauchery await Washtenaw County inhabitants with reelected-by-default Timothy Connors and felon Kuhnke.
