Re: [tips_and_tricks] Your Right to Be Heard & Void Judgments
- Windsor v. McVeigh, 93 U.S. 274, 277 (1876). Apro forma opportunity will not do. Due process demands an opportunity to be heard "at a meaningful time and in a meaningful manner." Armstrong v. Manzo, 380 U.S. 545, 552 (1965)I cannot help but think of the treatment Irwin Schiff has received in re these cites. He certainly was not allowed to testify in his capacity (as an expert on tax law) and his jury was kept virtually incommunicado as to evidence.Common justice requires that no man shall be condemned in his person or property without . . . an opportunity to make his defence." Baldwin v. Hale, 1 Wall. 223, 233 (1864)And what of Pete Henderson? The courts demanded he testify to what he knew to be false!
