NOTICING THE WEB

In Uncategorized on 12/05/2016 at 14:20

Buried among the spam, the clickbait, the propaganda, half-truths and downright lies spread abroad every nanosecond by the internet, one can find objective and useful information from trustworthy sources.

One might even stumble upon my blogposts, but modesty requires that I leave to your discretion into what category these shall go.

Judge Wherry reminds us that government agencies have websites. On such as these one can find data that cannot reasonably be questioned. FRCP 201(c) is the touchstone for permitting the Court to take juridical notice thereof.

Despite IRS’ claim that the proffer is untimely, and the proffered cyberinfo is cumulative of evidence already upon the record, Judge Wherry lets Lon B. Isaacson, Docket No. 29848-14, filed 12/5/16, introduce the webpage detailing his CA disbarment.

Judge Wherry relies on analogical Federal webpages locating inmates in Federal slammers and providing medical records for discharged military personnel, but apparently the CA Bar website passes muster.

“In general, the court may take notice of facts that are capable of accurate and ready determination by resort to sources whose accuracy cannot reasonably be questioned. Fed. R. Evid. 201(b).” Order, at p. 1.

Lon hasn’t got a certified copy of the CA order, and Judge Wherry can’t find it either.

So in goes the website, but only, as the texters say, FWIW.
