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, 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” 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.
