Now That We Need Him

Some of my senior readers may recall Judge Gustafson’s ultra-obliging nature, when he offered to try John Carter’s case in the slammer wherein John was an involuntary resident. Those who don’t, check out my blogpost “We’ll Come to You,” 9/18/12.

Can’t believe it was six years ago.

Well, today Michael Jack Riolo, Docket No. 1941-16, filed 9/7/18, might be standing in the need of similar treatment.

Judge Buch has this one.

“This case is calendared for trial at the Court’s December 10, 2018, Miami, Florida trial session. On September 6, 2018, the Commissioner filed a Motion for Continuance informing the Court that Mr. Riolo is incarcerated in Coleman, Florida, which is approximately 277 miles from Miami. The Commissioner also informed the Court that he had sent Mr. Riolo a letter explaining the he needed to file a Motion for Writ of Habeas Corpus Ad Testificandum with the Tax Court requesting his release from prison in order for him to testify at trial.” Order, at p. 1.

The issue, of course, is that Mike Jack will have to stump up the cash to pay for his trip to Miami and back from Coleman (wherever that may be).

So Mike Jack can respond to IRS. And see if Tax Court can send a Judge to Coleman.
