Recall Supporters Vow To “Pack The Courtroom” Tomorrow

An email blast moments ago from the El Paso Freedom Defense Committee:

Help ensure the voice of the people is heard! Senator John Morse is challenging the Recall efforts in Court, and THIS WEDNESDAY is our day to pack the Courtroom to send a message that We the People won't be silenced! This critical Court case will determine whether or not the Recall elections against Sens. John Morse and Angela Giron move forward. Morse constituents, Grassroots activists, Coalitions, Opinion leaders all welcome…

Meet us on the Court steps at 8:00a.m. 
Enter into the Courthouse and report to "Judge Hyatt's" Courtroom (look for signs).
Attire is business, business casual, or presentable casual

We hope these folks stay civil as they "pack the court," but that's not their reputation as you know. That said, District Court is not the same environment as a Colorado General Assembly committee hearing, where disruptive gun-lobby hooting and hollering was, inappropriately but you as may recall, tolerated.

Hopefully they keep in mind that Judge Robert Hyatt has armed bailiffs at his disposal.

    No no no.  Only citizens that support fracking bans are mobs, silly Guvs!  Citizens that pack courtrooms to 'not be silenced' are clearly not.  See, when local communities want to have a say in industrial actity in their midst, its an anarchist free for all.

    "Judge Robert Hyatt has federal marshals at his disposal"

    Say what? I thought this was District Court.

  3. OrangeFree says:

    I love staged showings of public support – as if "packing the courtroom" is some subliminal message to the judge that every single one – every last man, woman and child – of Morse's constituents want him removed from office. 

  4. gertie97 says:

    Judges have been known to reach the opposite conclusion, OF. If a judge picks up so much as a whiff of attempted intimidation, the miscreants are toast.

    It's always best to be on one's best behavior in court.

    If you have no prospects and nothing better to do at 8AM tomorrow, then dazzle us with your presence !

  6. Not Dame Edna says:

    I hope no one will be packing any tampons.

    When tampons are outlawed, only outlaws will tamp tampons.

      Twitter updates on recall hearing in District Court:

      #COleg (DP's Kurtis Lee) and #COpolitics (the Colorado Peak whackos) have updates on Twitter. Currently, Victor Head is testifying. 9news' Brandon Rittman (@Brandonrittman) is covering also.

      No decisions yet, lots of testimony and examining evidence.

    Here's Scott Gessler's tweet from 23 hours ago: (@ColoSecofState)

    Not political, it's the law. Constitutional deadline 60 days from July 5=Sept 3. MT @CPRHanel .@hickforco says it's political #COpolitics

    • Hawkeye-X says:

      Gessler has no relevance since he does not understand Colorado Constitution. He also knows he's wrong, but doesn't give a damn in the name of party politics.

      Plus, he's still ethically challenged and needs to be thrown out on his own ass.

    closing arguments in recall injunction hearing.

    Brandon Rittiman @BrandonRittiman 3m

    Judge Hyatt asks audience to refrain from outburts reacting to closing args in #recall hearing. #COleg

    note from mamajama: I truly am a politics dork, obviously very interested in this. Apologies for over-posting, but someone did ask about updates on Judge Hyatt's decision on the recall.

    Nobody thinks Gessler is more irrelevant than I do, but I still follow his tweets. Looks like Judge Hyatt won't be ruling on this recall petition language until tomorrow at 1 pm: 

    1. Peter Marcus ‏@MediaMarcus3m

      Judge Hyatt to rule at 1 pm tomorrow on #recall lawsuits. #coleg #copolitics

      Followed by Kristen Wyatt and 5 others

      Ok great. Thank you for this – been following this for a little while.

       

      I'm hell-raising over on a few news forum. oh well. I'm still trying to find the best possible source for someone to follow the proceedings, either by live blogging or the tweets. It seems the tweets is the best bet, huh? So who do I follow for the best tweets about Colorado politics? Specifically for the Democratic side.

      • mamajama55 says:

        If you search for #COleg, you'll get an aggregate of people tweeting about legislative news in CO. Then as far as specific people to follow, I like Gilbert Ortiz, our Pueblo county clerk. The rest I follow on this topic are journalists:  Kurtis Lee from the Denver Post, Brandon Rittiman from Channel 9, Ivan Moreno, AP journalist, even Eli Stokols from Fox.
