At that time, I promised to go through the mountain of pleadings and to publish my analysis of it on this blog.
I am starting to do it.
This blog is just the analysis of 3 pleadings:
(1) the complaint of the City of San Francisco and Santa Clara County;
(2) S-F's motion for a preliminary injunction against the Executive order; and
(3) President Trump's opposition to that motion.
We already know that the S-F motion for a preliminary injunction was granted by Judge William Orrick III.
There were a lot of celebratory comments about that decision.
Yet, reading the pleadings of the City of San-Francisco - just the pleadings, without the opposition or Judge Orrick's order on that motion - even a 2nd year law student (that's when Evidence is usually taught in law schools) must inevitable come to a conclusion that the injunction could not possibly be granted, because the pleadings were not only woefully legally insufficient, but give an impression of amateurish drafting, and drafting pitched at emotions, feelings and political affiliations and leanings of the judge, and not at any kind of legal standards.
