Virgil has informed us the Arizona judge's manual "Dealing With the
Maverick." is a loose-leaf manual of ancient vintage and it appears
it might have been produced by the office of the AG.
There was a confidential loose-leaf handbook for trial judges 20
years ago in this state that was produced by the state bar
association. It is not recalled to have been oriented toward the
dealing with non-lawyers but served as a handy reference book of
legal points. To believe a copy was not made available to each
lawyer involved in trial litigation would be naive.
There was also a hardback manual for federal judges dealing with non-
professional litigants mentioned on the internet several years ago
and was found in the law library. It dealt with issues frequently
raised by non-professionals and typical responses.
The important question is whether any litigants or potential
litigants were denied the opportunity to file papers in a judicial
court in the state of Arizona as implied by Virgil. If that
practice can be documented by affidavit, it would appear to be
actionable in federal court. If federal litigation is initiated, the
Arizona manual would be an object for discovery. This assumes the
litigants have not been individually restricted from filing in a
court due to historical abuse of filing.
