    rooting for Partington here, if for no other reason than OJAG’s “Professional Responsibility” process is an abortion.

  2. Socrates says:

    The ACLU amicus makes a taut presentation that (1) a lawyer has a constitutionally protected interest in practicing law, and (2) disciplinary action by a particular court requires due process. So, now we have two essential predicates to what Partington’s attorney must prove to win: these Navy actors actually denied him due process.

  3. Just Sayin' says:

    the fact the Navy PR process was involved should make a prima facie case there was no due process.
