“The news is that Richard Gilbert was absolutely brilliant. He was calm and so well spoken and utterly professional. Judge Carter will take the night to think it over. He believes the existing federal decision has merit. The ruling regarding the motion to dismiss is forthcoming. Not sure when, but soon. People need to go and support Richard. There were only two observers, myself included, both RP supporters. It would be nice if a few CA people would show up to the next session. It was so great to meet Richard in person. He is a wonderful patriot and human being. It was a privilege being there.”
“I understand the waiting tension, but I can assure you that Richard Gilbert has done his part. The judge was fascinating to observe and was very friendly and professional. But I was so impressed with Richard’s absolute confidence and soft-spoken powerful delivery. I wont post any more details because of the trolls who are out to destroy this great endeavor. The other lawyer indicted himself when forced to answer to the judge that he indeed breaks his own party rules. The judge was not pleased by this, naturally. Keep praying, meditating, or whatever we all do to calm ourselves and send good vibes out. But believe me, there can be no better person at the head of this injunction than Richard Gilbert, and it humbles me to think he is doing it for no pay. All detracting trolls needed to witness this today and to see how there is not a single ulterior motive on Richard’s part. He was as sincere and as real as they come. We have already won, just by what happened today.”
UPDATE FROM BEN SWANN
Looks like Judge Carter has granted the RNC’s motion to dismiss but WITHOUT PREJUDICE… meaning that they may still be in violation of the Voting Rights Act of 1971.
Below is the Ruling Issued by Judge Carter 08-07-2012
“For the foregoing reasons, the Court GRANTS Defendants’ Motion to Dismiss. However, the Court dismisses WITHOUT PREJUDICE.
