Judge Anna Brown Gives Fashion Advice to Medenbach

by Aubrie Bosworth

km03Kenneth Medenbach is one of the defendants in the Malheur Protest Trial. He is being charged along with the other six (Ammon Bundy, Ryan Bundy, Shanna Cox, Neil Wampler, Jeff Banta, and David Fry) with the charge of “Conspiracy to impede federal employees of the U.S.” Mr. Medenbach is also being charged with “Theft of federal property” (a ford pickup truck).

Today in court, Medenbach asked to be excused from court for health issues for the rest of the day and tomorrow for a doctors appointment. Judge Anna J. Brown said he had to waive his right to be present in court for today and tomorrow (September 9th) and made sure he understood that his attorney would be speaking on his behalf. Kenneth replayed with “This (the court case) can not kill me, these issues can kill me” so he agreed to wave his right to be present for the two days and left court, but he will be back for court on Tuesday the 13th of September.

km01Yesterday the 7th Mr. Medenbach wore a shirt about the Bill of Rights in the court room. Today (8th) Judge Anna J. Brown asked Kenneth’s attorney if his client had his offensive shirt issue taken care of.

Anna J. Brown said in a message “I’ve already made clear on the record that “jury-nullification” argument is contrary to law and may not be presented to jurors.”

The back of Kenneth’s shirt quotes saying “The pages of history shine on instances of the jury’s exercise of its prerogative to disregard instructions of the judge…”

The words “U.S Constitution” is on one shirtsleeve and the words “Bill of Rights” on the other.

She told him “Do not wear this shirt again.”

Seems to me she is almost afraid of jury-nullification and the jurors knowing about it.

  1. Perhaps the reason Judge Brown disallowed the shirt is because, like most every meme and soundbite, it’s misleading apart from its context. I encourage you to read it (section 3 of the opinion).

    After citing the phrase on the shirt as part of several pages of legal and historical review, the Court actually concludes with a “rejection of the request for jury nullification doctrine” because “an explicit instruction to a jury conveys an implied approval that runs the risk of degrading the legal structure requisite for true freedom, for an ordered liberty that protects against anarchy as well as tyranny.”*

    In other words, our nation is great precisely because nobody is above the law. A jurist should disregard that law only because their own unprompted (that’s key) conscience demands they do. Making disregard for the law a matter of course puts us on the path to anarchy or tyranny.

    • Jason Abbott, you stated, “In other words, our nation is great precisely because nobody is above the law?”
      Under 28usc453 amended,(1990) it states; Each justice or judge of the United States shall take the following oath or affirmation before performing the duties of his/her office: “I, ___ ___, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will administer justice without respect to persons, and do equal right to the poor and to the rich, and that I will faithfully and impartially discharge and perform all the duties incumbent upon me as ___ under the Constitution and laws of the United States. So help me God.”
      Judge Anna Brown DID NOT take this oath before performing the duties of her office. In other words, it appears Judge Anna Brown, believes she IS ABOVE THE LAW!
