    Gee, why would a judge throw out a case BEFORE all of the evidence and testimony was presented? The answer is: We will never know because this state protects judges like this. You can rest assured this judge will not be forced to account for his decision.The biggest surprise is that the Superior Court agreed to hear this case at all. My guess is that they also want their piece of the pie. Just paint me tainted.
