A while ago, I commented on one Judge Paul Friedman, incidentally to his releasing Hinkley for unsupervised visits. I suggested at the time he was letting politics into his rulings.  A fresh article in .WorldNetDaily suggests hishonorless is making this kind of ‘make the world safe for the far left’ ruling a bit of a habit.

Judge Paul Friedman upheld the military’s conviction of former Army specialist Michael New, who refused to don the U.N. cap and shoulder patch and to serve in a peacekeeping mission in Macedonia nearly 10 years ago, the New York Sun reported.

This is an intensely bad move, and should be overtruned… and it does look like this will be appealed.
