PSST – Y’WANNA BUY A TRANSCRIPT CHEAP?

In Uncategorized on 01/14/2015 at 17:43

No, it’s not a Tax Court Snowden spilling the clichés; it’s none other than The Great Dissenter, a/k/a The Judge Who Writes Like a Human Being, s/a/k/a The Implacable, Irrefragable, Illustrious, Indefatigable, Ineluctable, Indestructible Foe of the Partitive Genitive, Judge Mark V. Holmes, putting Randy Jenkins and friends wise to getting a low-cost or no-cost transcript of their trial, all nine (count ‘em, nine) volumes’ worth. And not one that fell off the Capital Reporting Co. truck.

Nope, it’s a designated hitter, Randy Jenkins, et al., Docket No. 27139-11, filed 1/14/15. Randy and the et als must get en charette with their post-trial brief. And Randy has a problem, which carries over to the et als.

For the nonce and yet a while after, Randy is an involuntary guest in a governmentally-owned and operated residence for the penally-challenged. In short, the Stony Lonesome.

Randy and the et als need help. They ask Judge Holmes to toss them the nine-volume saga. For free.

Judge Holmes: “Petitioners do not address the relevant factors:

“Do petitioners need the transcript to write their briefs?;

“Do petitioners have the financial means to pay for the transcript?; and

“Does the case present a substantial question?

“See Taxpayer Information: After Trial, http://www.ustaxcourt.gov/taxpayer info after.htm#AFTER9 (last visited Jan. 12, 2015).

“The Court therefore denies the motion, but without prejudice to renewal on a proper showing.

“Petitioners are advised that the Court customarily uses the form for seeking a waiver of the filing fee in considering the second question. See http://www.ustaxcourt.gov/forms/Application_for_Waiver_of_Filing_Fee.pdf.” Order, at p.2.

Judge Holmes extends the briefing deadlines by 60 days, but neither he nor Tax Court will spring for a free copy of the nine-volume saga.

But Randy and the et als can reapply. And they shouldn’t go to a guy in a black raincoat standing outside the Glass Box at Second Street, NW.
