Anne Arundel Nat Res Trials friday

Granger has confirmed that there will be Natural Resources [ NR ] Trials on Friday, at 1 PM. This is a public Courthouse, 251 Rowe Blvd, Annapolis Md, [ near Taylor Ave. ] Observers can come in. When you come past the Guards and Deputies, walk to your left, past the clerk's office, and look for the Electronic information Displays. You can copy down anything that you find interesting. It is all public information. The courtroom will be noted also. Courtrooms are on the floor above. There is an elevator, if you want to use it.
.
When you come into Courtroom, make believe that it is a church. Quiet, respectful, no electronics turned on. Granger is 73 inches, slim, grey short hair, 65 yrs, in a suit. Chill out, watch take notes, learn... enjoy... You will see the american legal system working. The Judge is part of the Judiciary. The Police officers work for DNR , which is part of the executive branch. The Attorney on the right, works for The county, and the Attorney General of Maryland, He or she is involved with the Executive Branch, enforcing the laws. The prosecutor [ on the right ] will attempt to explain the charges against the defendant, and bring in witnesses against the defendant.
.
The defendant and his attorney, [ left side ] will try to dispute the charges, and the witnesses, trying to convince the Judiciary [ Judge ] that the defendant is innocent of charges.
.
Sometimes, If the prosecutor feels he cannot get a conviction today, [ like the state's key witness is missing ] The State's Attorney will put a case on the stet docket. This case will hang around in the court computer, and not be called up until the defendant has another citation against him or her. The case may be held in " limbo " for months or years, until another charge comes up. There is a limit on the time, granger does not know the limit on keeping a stet active.
.
At the end of the trial, the Judge will announce His or Her ruling. The defendant must stay silent. The attorneys are forbidden to argue, that is what appeals are for. If you have questions, we cannot talk, we must go out to the hallway. Don't get the deputy riled up.
.
Incidentally, The third branch of Maryland Government " legislature " creates the laws [ hopefully ] in response to the wishes, desires, and demands of the citizen voters of Maryland. The law last year was that each fisherperson, could keep two rockfish. Two people in a boat could have four fish. Tyler was caught with two people, and eleven fish. That is why the DNR officer issued citation # case # 0y66167745 case. Officer Beveridge was out there doing his job, when he found seven illegal fish in the bow compartment of tyler's boat.
.
Sometimes a law will be so unpopular [ think off track betting, and or the recent marriage law ] that the citizens demand to vote that law up or down personally. As you know the gambling was approved. The marriage law
may / will go up for "referendum" the actual votes of the citizen voters.

Final update before Court. Granger will be there...tall ugly guy.
.
FYI, I had a guy call me this week, who needed representation that conflicted with this AA Natural Resources Docket. I sent the customer to another lawyer, because I feel strongly that what I am doing is important to our grandchildren.
.
This is true, or it is a lie. You can decide....Tom Granger
