Scott Lively has again been DENIED an attempt to halt the proceeding in the Crimes Against Humanity lawsuit brought against him by Sexual Minorities Uganda (SMUG). As OBLOGDEE reported last week, Lively requested the court suspend the case and stop the discovery phase from beginning while he petitions the Federal Court of Appeals. He has submitted a Writ of Mandamus petition asking the court to overrule Judge Ponsor’s denial of his Motion to Dismiss earlier this year.
Judge Ponsor wrote a short and sweet denial:
“DENIED. Disagreement with a court’s ruling, however sincere, is not a plausible basis for a Mandamus Petition. Moreover, the harm alleged is no greater than the usual burden on a party to a complex lawsuit. So ordered.
Michael A. Ponsor USDJ 12-10-13”
Seems a very fitting way to celebrate International Human Rights Day.
