BREAKING: Appeals court strikes down special master in [stolen] documents case

H/T Scissorhead Skinny-D

Tough luck, Fat Nixon:

A federal appeals court panel on Thursday halted an outside review of thousands of documents seized from former president Donald Trump’s Florida residence, ruling that a lower-court judge was wrong to appoint an expert to decide whether any of the material should be shielded from criminal investigators.

And I will note that ⅔ of the panel were appointed by Hair Füror and the last third was appointed by Chimpy. This was not a panel of RINOs (as I am sure Lord Damp Nut will exclaim).

“In considering these arguments, we are faced with a choice: apply our usual test; drastically expand the availability of equitable jurisdiction for every subject of a search warrant; or carve out an unprecedented exception in our law for former presidents,” the Thursday opinion read. “We choose the first option. So the case must be dismissed.”

Full-speed ahead, for the recently appointed Special Counsel!

    So the legalese definition of “equitable jurisdiction” doesn’t mean what it sounds like.
    Because if it is already equitable then how do you expand that?
