Let me start this by saying I do not possess an intimate knowledge of the law, and have never professed as much. I do understand however that law can, and is, interpreted in many ways. Thus, we have the need for a court system and Judges to enlighten us, the uneducated, down a path of reasonable understanding.
I also understand the so-called root of all evil, money, or more accurately the lack thereof, is possibly the driving force in the final disposition of many a case. Meaning only this, what with the appellate system and the cost of lawyer fees, and time involved, I can see the one with the most toys (that is $) wins.
Eventually one of the litigates may realize funds gained will not equal or justify funds lost and that principals, pride, and time, although valuable to the ego and self esteem will not justify the debt incurred or the time wasted to bring a positive result to the issue at hand, even though the case may be strong in their favor.
Ergo---money triumphs over truth.
How often does this happen? I haven’t a clue.
Does it happen? Surely it does.
I have purposely refrained from commenting on the lawsuits brought against Albero by Chief Webster and Mayor Tilghman because as I have stated above I am not that familiar with law. I really do not care personally about the suits because the outcome for either party does not affect me in the least. My only interest is for entertainment purposes and because Albero has himself has seen fit to sensationalize the issues.
So, with that mind, and with no aspersions being cast, I would like to solicit the following.
In the process of a lawsuit when the plaintiffs attorney requests, demands, petitions, (or whatever the term may be), the court through interrogatory information pertaining the case at hand, how does the court determine if the said interrogatories are legitimate and where exactly is the line drawn.
Can the court reject any or all of the interrogatories?
Can a case be rejected and terminated on the merits of interrogatories?
Does the court, prior to the hearing, review interrogatory responses?
And finally---does Albero’s extensive experience sitting to the left side of a Judge warrant his absolute denial of interrogatory requests through a legitimate legal venue?
I'm just asking! Only positive, serious and civil responses will be entertained.
