I knew this wasn’t over until 7 business days after an actual dismissal has been granted.
Even then... my guess would be Sullivan would try to retract his dismissal.
so lets play out the dog and pony show here.
The scary part about this is that the argument that the judge doesn’t have the right to contest the appellate court decision was pretty persuasive. He is not a litigant, just a judge, so he does not have a right to appeals. Of course, he didn’t have a right to a lawyer, either, but it has been insane all along, so why not an appeal, too. Soon, they will let him take over the prosecution.
