No Appeal from Ravnsborg; State Surrenders on IM 24

Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg had until the end of the day yesterday, June 10, to file an appeal in SD Voice & Heidelberger v. Noem, Ravsnborg, & Barnett, the case that he spectacularly lost as I successfully overturned the unconstitutional IM 24.

As I check the court records at 07:13 CDT on June 11, I see no appeal filed by Ravnsborg:

It looks like Jason Ravnsborg has surrendered. Thank you, Jason. Make the state’s check payable to James D. Leach, Attorney at Law, Rapid City, South Dakota.

    Congratulations! Not only did you have an excellent case, Ravsbutt probably thought “appeal” meant the skin of one banana.

    Way to go, Cory. Excellent

    Congrats Cory, all of the hard work paid off!

    Thank you, friends! Let’s view this victory as the first of many that we will win over Jason Ravnsborg over the next four years. Not only will we restore and protect the Constitutional rights of hundreds of thousands of South Dakotans, but we will also hang around Ravnsborg neck a chain of courtroom defeats so heavy that Republicans will be embarrassed to run him for their nominee in 2022. (Prediction from right field: Sara Frankenstein rises against Ravnsborg the way Krebs rose against Gant in 2014. Ravnsborg surrenders and spends the last year of his tenure checking his texts from the Yankton Burger King.)

    Indeed, grudznick can agree with Mr. H on this point. Let us hope the GOP pulls their heads out of their collective bung at the convention and doesn’t send morons like Mr. Ravnsborg back to the statehouse and wipes their buttocks of the flecks of splattered Hagaardism and Jensenonicy that stain their undies during the primaries for the legislatures. grudznick would even give you another libbie or two in the legislatures to unseat these fellows and keep the insaner ones under a thumb.

    G, your anal fixation is inappropriate here on these pages.

    Congrats Cory for your efforts, we don’t agree on much but I’m glad you pushed back on this unconstitutional garbage.

    Thank U

    Thank you, Pete. We should always keep an eye out for important, basic points on which we agree and can support each other…

    …like the People Power Petitions! Would you like to circulate a couple petitions to help us enjoy our right to petition without asking government permission, signing our names in a government registry, or wearing a government badge?
