  •  Pissing off Federal judges, (2+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    even if the ones who are (or started out) fairly conservative, is not a great idea.

    In regular criminal cases, if the government screws up badly enough (and pisses the judge off enough), the court can dismiss the charges, or declare a mistrial. The court can also report ethical violations by the lawyers to the disciplinary authorities. (And even if you don't get your ticket yanked, you can be barred from appearing in federal courts.)

    So in the short run, I would keep an eye on the judges here. It sounds like they are getting pretty pissed off, in the appropriate direction.
