    the person making that statement to violate Rule 2149.

Judge omd's Arguments:

As in CFJ 1887, the relevant section of R2149:
      A person SHALL NOT make a public statement unless e believes
      that in doing so e is telling the truth.

I will make the assumption that the 'person making that statement' has
the modicum of reasonableness necessary to understand the following
argument.  This, to the best of my knowledge, holds true for all
current players.  The case of a partnership which claimed to believe,
say, that the world is flat is interesting, but outside the scope of
this CFJ.

If the statement 'This statement is not true' is true, then it must
therefore be not true.  This is a contradiction, so the statement
cannot be true.  (It can't be false, either, but that is irrelevant;
you could call the truth value for the statement FileNotFound.)

Anyone who understood this argument would not, making such a public
statement, think e was telling the truth, so it would indeed violate
R2149.  TRUE.
