Judged FALSE by OscarMeyr: 29 Mar 2007 22:51:33 GMT
Geothe judged CFJ 1594 to be false, thus meaning that e had been
de-registered, yet only a player may judge a CFJ.
Thus I believe that CFJ 1594 has not been judged and thus Goethe has not
actually been de-registered, as until CFJ 1594 has been judged there is
uncertainty in the registration state of Geothe.
Judge OscarMeyr's Arguments:
According to the Clerk of the Court archives and the agoranomic.org archives,
which I consider the best available information for researching this CFJ, here
is the relevant timeline:
16 Dec 2006 05:11:34 UTC CFJ 1594 called by Murphy
18 Dec 2006 01:45:01 UTC CFJ 1594 assigned to Goethe
18 Dec 2006 15:44:10 UTC CFJ 1594: Goethe recused
18 Dec 2006 15:44:10 UTC CFJ 1594 assigned to Sherlock
20 Dec 2006 21:53:52 UTC CFJ 1594a judged by Goethe, under dispute and in
21 Dec 2006 01:35:23 UTC CFJ 1596 called by Quazie questioning whether CFJ
1594 had been judged.
21 Dec 2006 17:16:36 UTC CFJ 1594b judged by Sherlock, under dispute and in
Because R217 states that judgment must be based on the game state at the time
the CFJ is issued, the judging of CFJ 1594b may be ignored.
According to this timeline, Goethe had been removed as Trial Judge of CFJ 1594
before e submitted eir judgement. As long as this recusal is not challenged
as invalid -- and I see nothing in the Stare Decisis questioning that recusal
-- then at the time of this CFJ, Sherlock was the Trial Judge for that CFJ,
and e delivered eir judgment after the calling of this CFJ. Thus, at the time
this CFJ was called, CFJ 1594 had not been judged. QED.
