I've attached the dismissal order. A few thoughts: The discussion starts at page 6. In a nutshell, Judge Carter is highly skeptical of Gilbert's claim. Gilbert's brief opposing the dismissal motion was plagued with errors...for instance, the Judge said he never addressed the arguments in the Motion and instead focused on procedure. Page 7 is also kind of an indictment of Gilbert's competence: Gilbert also tried to introduce DVDs as part of his opposition action, contra established case law and procedure...another knock against his competence. Page nine goes into detail. The meat of the ruling comes around page 13: The First Amendment is mentioned to support this rather plain fact. Page 17: Carter wonders where Gilbert's argument is supporting such an assertion...indeed, he says "Plaintiffs make no argument in their Opposition." Another whiff by Gilbert. Page 17 again: Something people on this very board have been saying since the beginning.... Carter is being nice though, since he dismisses without prejudice and offers Gilbert "a third and final opportunity to attempt to sufficiently plead a violation of Section 1971(b) of the Voting Rights Act." Deadline for the amended complaing is August 20. Back to the drawing board, Gilbert. ETA: I also thought this was interesting from Page 20: Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
