Judge Amy Berman Jackson strikes again (CNN article)

Excerpt:

Trump "continues to propagate the lie that inspired the attack on a near daily basis," she wrote in an opinion Thursday keeping riot defendant Karl Dresch in jail. "And the anger surrounding the false accusation continues to be stoked by multiple media outlets as well as the state and federal party leaders who are intent on censuring those who dare to challenge the former President's version of events."

Dresch, like other Trump followers, "stands ready to do it again," because of a belief that a civil war may be necessary and his allegiance to Trump, who continues to challenge the election, Jackson noted.

Her commentary about Barr, the Capitol rioters and the former President himself isn't atypical coming from the DC District Court, where several judges have made headlines in recent years for harshly calling out obfuscation in the Trump administration and the criminal actors connected to Trump.

But Jackson has handled more of the most high-profile cases than perhaps any other district judge in Washington, and she still oversees historically important cases.

5. I hope not.

Shes going to be 67 next month (July). Id rather a justice in their 40s for the next few at least. I know it not fair but one thing we dont do as well as we should is looking long term.

11. Thanks, Obama!

From Wikipedia:

"On June 17, 2010, President Barack Obama nominated Jackson to fill a vacant seat on the United States District Court for the District of Columbia that was created in 2007 when Judge Gladys Kessler took senior status. She was unanimously rated "well qualified" for the post by the American Bar Association's Standing Committee on the Federal Judiciary (the committee's highest rating). Her nomination lapsed at the end of the 111th Congress; Obama renominated her on January 5, 2011, at the beginning of the 112th Congress. The United States Senate confirmed Jackson on March 17, 2011, on a 970 vote. She received her commission the next day."

Looks like the Senate took their sweet time confirming her (no surprises there), but finally did it on the second try, thank goodness. Good pick, Barack! 👍👍👍
