I doubt it was an accident that Judge Aileen Cannon released her opinion on Labor Day. I think she expected that by doing this it would get the least news coverage from the major media. I turned on MSNBC last night when Rachel Maddow would usually have her show repeated at 9:00 PM on the west coast to see what her legal experts were saying. I especially wanted to hear what University of Michigan Law School professor Barbara McQuade had to say since this is where Cannon got her law degree. U of M Law, as it is referred to in the state, is rated the 10th best law school in the country. Instead MSNBC was airing a long special about the Game Stop stock market investing which made some people millions.

Those of us who were following this yesterday read comments or heard from law professors who among other things said that their first year students would be expected to write far better opinions.
I have no way of knowing whether any of this opinion reporting got through to Judge Cannon or if it did whether she cared.
Trying to put myself in her place I know how I’d feel as a retired psychotherapist if something I wrote about the psychology of Trump on Daily Kos was ripped apart by even one psychology professor, let alone by at least a dozen, in a comment either here or on the Duty to Warn private Facebook group started by Dr. John Gartner that I am a member of, I would be hanging my head in shame.
