MONTGOMERY: When you have a disagreement with someone, if only one party gets to present their side and no other side is presented, you are sure to win.
And that is the case in the search warrant issue before the Alabama Supreme Court.
Only Attorney General Luther Strange was able to present his side of the case for the issuance of the search warrant for Victoryland. Strange's request for an order to the Macon County Judge to issue the search warrant was filed "under seal". There was no chance of anyone to rebut what Strange was saying and his justification for a search warrant.
Remember, when Mobile County District Attorney John Tyson was in charge of the Gambling Task Force, a special Circuit Judge was appointed for Houston County. The Judge was from Crenshaw County. Tyson's agents were unable to obtain a search warrant because they could not establish probably cause. That is when Tyson and Riley rolled 130 Alabama State Troopers for intimidation closure.
Remember, in Greene County a special Circuit Judge from Jefferson County was appointed to handle Greene County. That Judge issued a search warrant. Then after a hearing, he ordered everything returned to Greene County that Attorney General Luther Strange removed. The Judge accused the Attorney General's Office of lying and not having trustworthy experts.
Now the Alabama Supreme Court has issued an opinion of how correct Strange is in the Victoryland issue. The only problem, they issued a 46 page opinion without the benefit of arguements from the other side.
When one can not win a fight when no one gets to present their evidence, and they do not win, something is wrong. However, when the courts do not allow the issue to be tried and decided with both sides presented, that is clear and decisive evidence that are not being honest.
One would think, after what Roy Moore went through and his removal from office, of all people that would make sure everything was on a level plaing field, Roy Moore would. However, proof is in his actions.
It matters not to me the outcome of the ruling. It matters a lot to me the level and honest playing field.
