Yet Ninth Circuit Judges accused an Anti-Corruption Blogger of criminal activity in a higher court, federal court of appeals ruling. And the "evidence" the Ninth Circuit Judges states as proof was a New York Times article of which was not based on any judicial finding or adjudicated fact.
In a Landmark Ruling that sets the Bar on First Amendment Rights of Bloggers and ENDS the Monopoly of Free Speech in which Big Media had for so long, as if in opposition to it's own ruling that bloggers have EQUALITY with the New York Times, we see higher court Judges using that same "Big Media", the New York Times, as adjudicated FACT that a blogger engaged in criminal activity and in a high court esteemed RULING, these Judges simply accuses Blogger Crystal Cox of felonious activities and extortionate acts with NO proof, no adjudicated facts and ONLY citing a New York Times article as proof of their defamatory, speech chilling, unconstitutional "pot shots" against a blogger exposing corruption judges, attorneys, cops, and giving voice to victims of all corruption.
This action is illegal, immoral and unconstitutional yet Judges do it all the time from Family Court to a Federal Court of Appeals across the United States. They do this same technique to "frame", set up, discredit, bully, harass and defame bloggers, citizen journalists and whistleblowers in every town who are exposing judicial corruption at every level.
Investigative Blogger Crystal Cox says it is not Ethical, Lawful, Nor Constitutional for a Judicial Ruling to accuse litigants of crimes they have not been convicted of. Crystal Cox says this is HOW Judges and Lawyers silence those exposing corruption.
Below is a bit of "media" on Blogger Crystal Cox appealing the Ninth Circuit Judges pot shot accusing her of criminal activity in a court of appeals ruling on a civil case.
"Despite her First Amendment court victory, Montana blogger Crystal Cox doesn’t like the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals suggestion that she shakes down reporting subjects for money in exchange for retractions. So she has asked for a retraction of her own from the court.
In January, the circuit held for the first time that bloggers like Cox have the same First Amendment protections as traditional media.
That was a big victory for bloggers generally and included overturning a $2.5 million libel verdict against Cox based on her accusations of fraud against a bankruptcy trustee.
What Cox didn’t like was a single sentence in the opinion by Judge Andrew Hurwitz that stated,
“Cox apparently has a history of making similar allegations and seeking payoffs in exchange for retraction.”
Last week, her lawyer Eugene Volokh asked the court to amend its opinion, not to change the substance of the ruling, but to delete the offending sentence. The claim of “payoffs” was based on a single New York Times article in 2011.
“A judicial assertion of misconduct by a named person, even a judicial assertion modified with the word ‘apparently,’ could be based on the record in a case, or authoritative finding by another court.
But it ought not be based on a newspaper column, which was written without the benefit of cross-examination, sworn testimony, or the other safeguards of the judicial process,” Volokh wrote. He said there “seems to be no ‘history’ of ‘seeking payoffs’ claimed in the article, he said.
Not surprisingly, some news outlets repeated the sentence but omitted the term “apparently,” he said. Journalists may perceive it as a factual finding, not just recitation of a newspaper column’s claim.
Thus Cox has asked for the court to redact the sentence from its opinion."
