Judge Shopping

Shopping for Justice

Seems the New Yorker has uncovered the fact that when seeking a warrant for James Rosen's emails,  our Attorney General went judge shopping until he got the one he wanted... third time's the charm eh?

Kind of Defeats the Purpose

If the state can shop judges until they get one that gives them the answer they are looking for, it kind of defeats the purpose of an impartial judiciary, doesn't it?

Two judges separately declared that the Justice Department was required to notify Rosen of the search warrant, even if the notification came after a delay, and NBC News reported that the warrant to search Rosen’s e-mail account was personally approved by Holder.

Rosen found out that his emails had been seized after it was reported in the Washington Post
