Superior Court Judge Orlando F. Hudson said a deputy sheriff attempted to serve the hearing notice at Nifong's November Drive home Monday evening, but Nifong's wife -- Cy Gurney -- would not accept it.

Man, oh man. 'How to p*** off a judge, for Dummies.'

The deputy then posted the notice on Nifong's door, according to Hudson.

"That's proper service as far as I'm concerned," the judge added.

Yup.

There can be no faith in our justice system with a district attorney who, in a very public case, conspires to withhold exculpatory evidence and repeatedly makes misrepresentations and false statements to the court and opposing counsel

Captain Obvious strikes again

As they say in NYC, “Nail and wail” service.

No doubt. “That’s proper service, as far as I’m concerned,” is a strong indication that the judge is not willing to get the niceties of civil procedure get in the way of the “case.” Collect your things, Nifong.

I wonder how many of those notices Nifong delighted in terrorizing witnesses and defendants. It is indeed frightening.

I think every case Nifong ever prosecuted should be reviewed.

"There can be no faith in our justice system with a district attorney who, in a very public case, conspires to withhold exculpatory evidence and repeatedly makes misrepresentations and false statements to the court and opposing counsel," Brewer wrote.

True, but the judge neglected to note that this is all SOP for nearly all of the Demagogues all around the country. Finding honest and decent 'RAT politicians has become a needle-in-a-haystack kind of challenge.

It’s a hearing notice and both Nifong and his wife are lawyers. No big thing, but to refuse service is just silly. hearing is going to happen anyway.

Don’t equate service with ‘intimidation’, as all parties involved know that these things will happen.

And yes, defense attorney’s are surely reviewing Nifong’s past cases in search of....money and whatever other injustices may have occurred

Thursday's hearing isn't the only potential legal trouble facing Nifong.

Indeed...it's only the beginning of a litigation nightmare for the treacherous Nifungus. By the time the mothers of those upstanding, young Lacrosse players are through setting their ten commandments in his face, he's gonna look like the remains of a Gillette Mach 7 blade malfunction...

Sounds like the deputy read Martin Luther's biography. LOL!

Agreed.


On a somewhat unrelated note, though, I've seen deputies, without a word, hand a summons to the first minor child that answered the door. I would assume that ISN'T proper service.

My point is to the uninitiated being served carried a modicum of anxiety with it.

The State Bar ruled June 16 that Nifong should be stripped of his law license for mishandling the lacrosse case, which ended in April with a declaration by N.C. Attorney General Roy Cooper that three players were innocent of assaulting an exotic dancer during an off-campus party last year.

Insufficient for using the power of the state to willfully destroy the lives of these young men.

July 13? How can he serve for a month after disbarment?

If I understand it correctly, he isn't disbarred yet, because the final order hasn't been signed or released or entered or issued by the hearing panel, and that hasn't yet happened. It may even be that the order when released, takes effect 30 days later. Maybe an NC lawyer can comment.

Cy Gurney, Nifong’s wife, is a victim’s rights advocate in the North Carolina court system. Wonder if Cy Gurney viewed the exotic dancer as a victim and pillow-talked Nifong into prosecution.
