Richard Harlem claims that by raising the defense of absolute judicial immunity, which was just granted to another attorney in the same Delaware County Supreme Court, Mr. Neroni somehow acknowledged misconduct.
That statement says a lot about competence, or rather, incompetence of Richard Harlem who apparently does not distinguish between juridictional defenses and arguments on the merits of a case.
Yet, when applied to judges who routinely claim absolute judicial immunity when sued for civil rights violations, that would then mean that judges acknowledge misconduct alleged in the court actions against them by raising that defense?
And, since Judge Dowd was sued by Mr. Neroni in a pro se civil action (dismissed based on absolute judicial immunity rasied by Judge Dowd), Judge Dowd acknowledged his misconduct that Mr. Neroni sued him for by raising that defense?
It is interesting how Judge Dowd will rule on this new rule formulated by Richard Harlem - when you raise a jurisdictional defense, you acknowledge allegations in the complaint on the merits.
Looks like Richard Harlem would benefit from another trip to law school, for an extended period of time.
