The judge said he feared that "they were treading into First Amendment Waters". I think that is what he said. "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances. " edited: But of course that doesn't give the COS the right to rip people off. And that is what he has to determine. Whether or not the Garcias are more or less fucked by all the money they forked over in good conscious in the past and may not have any recourse now. Sort of like a "buyer beware"? I guess? The COS internal arbitration has to be deemed legit or not by the judge? IDK I hope so! I wish their lawyer called Rinder up first. He had something to do with the internal justice system writing? Didn't he? Or was at least knowledgeable about it. I thought it was strange to call Hadyn and Christi up to tell their stories. I know what their judge was trying to establish, but it back fired. I kind of agree with the judge that their testimonies were not relevant to the case. If they brought Rinder up to talk first, I think that may have sufficed and help to stay on track and not piss off the judge. At the very least, at least their stories are on court record.
