Good morning, #threadnought - time for the livetweet of the Appellant's brief in Mignogna v People Who Hurt Mignogna's Feelings.

The brief still isn't publicly available, but I'll be posting screenshots. Absolutely don't trust me and do check my work when it becomes available.
I'm going to grab a cup of tea, and give y'all a chance to do the same, and then we'll get rolling on this for real.
Right. So let's review what this document needs to accomplish:

(1) It needs to get the affidavits - at least Vic's and Slatosch's - in as evidence. (Huber's was basically useless.)
(2) It needs to clearly identify why the court was wrong on each claim.

Good Afternoon #Threadnought - New Filing!

This one is from the appeal. It's another letter filing - but this one is from the 2nd Court of Appeals to Ty, and says (in lawyer): "Dear Ty:
You done screwed up. Fix it.
Sincerely,
The Court

@CPlanned I've got a few things to say about this brief filing. We'll start with the obvious, then move to the more substantive.

The obvious:
#oof
#howembarrassing
@CPlanned The more substantive:
(1) having the court threaten to dismiss your appeal of a final order for lack of prosecution prior to the hearing that would result in the entry of a final order is Time Lord absurdity, and I'm loving it.

Good evening - or afternoon - #threadnought

It's time for Part 2 of the TCPA hearing transcript livetweet. Here's how I'll work this tonight:
I'm going to get through at least Rial/Toye and hopefully the whole thing.
There will be at least one interruption, and if things are going well enough to get through the whole thing I might split the thread at the start of the Funi portion.

As with yesterday's effort, I'm going to focus more on the argument than on the merits. Probably.
I'm also probably not going to see questions in time to work them into the thread, but will try to go back later on.

So, without further ado, let's return to the tale of Ty and the Terrible, Horrible, No-Good, Very Bad Hearing.

Good evening - or night - #threadnought

It's been a while, but it looks like it's time for a livetweet. My understanding is that the full document will be released to the public very soon, and I'll link it at the end of the thread instead of waiting to start.
A quick overview:
I'm in England and it's pushing midnight, so I'm not going to sink too deep into the substantive law, but I will try to hit all the high points from the hearing. I'll also talk about oral advocacy a fair amount.
I coach a moot court team, so I'll be reading this transcript with the question of whether it should be assigned reading in mind.

I should note in this context that I've got hopes for Hsu (Vic's newest lawyer.) His bio said he did Jessup, which is a big deal moot court.

This poll ended up even more lop-sided than we expected!

Give me a moment...

-MtSG
Long-time listeners know our normal Twitter convention is for me to sign my tweets "MtSG" (Mike the Sound Guy) since normally I'm not on Twitter because this place is usually a dumpster fire hellsite

However...
Unknown to the listenership, I have been pursuing my JD from the Twitter University School of Law. And I've been reliably informed that it has the equivalent of a 3L practice rule?

And for 3L-practice-rule tweets, apparently signing every one "-MtSG" would be weird
