The settlement approval hearing was held this morning. The judge has taken the request to approve the settlement under submission. Only one of those filing an objection to the settlement was represented by counsel. His name is Alex Kozinski. An Alex Kozinski [aka "the big Kozinski"] is the Chief Judge of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. He submitted a well-written, colorful, and persuasive objection. Judge Kozinski is also known for writing colorful opinions. LEAF owner Kozinski lives in Rancho Palos Verdes. So does Judge Kozinski. If anyone on this forum attended the hearing this morning, I'd really like to know more about Mr. Kozinski.

^ That's good to hear. From what my lawyer said, even one objection might be enough to put the kibosh to the settlement. Especially if it's well written AND from a Judge! :D

He's not just any judge. He's fairly legendary, both in his own mind, and in legal circles. He is known as a libertarian. He was appointed by Reagan in 1985, when he was just 35, and has written many controversial opinions and dissents. Judging from his use of postings on this forum, he is either a member or a serious lurker. Maybe he'll read this and fill us in on the hearing himself. BTW, his LEAF's name is Pearl.

Here is a link to the objection:

Read the entire objection. The part about sanctioning the crooks who claimed to represent the class as a whole was awesome. He takes them apart splinter by splinter.

Well Done! Really Well Done!

We all owe Alex Kozinki. :!:

Really. Thanks!

that objection and that he did it is hilarious and potent.
the judge has a very interesting history, for anyone who cares to look back at his career.
nice to know that he is a fellow LEAFer.

A wonderful objection brief, but I suspect that the settlement judge will simply ignore it and rubber stamp the settlement regardless... Judges in settlements such as this are historically and famously lazy...
