Do you know what a "nulidad" is?
But thanks to this sweeping affirmance of Chief Judge Moreno by the 11th Circuit, now we all know:
Though Plaintiffs could have sought a nulidad, they abandoned their appellate rights in Guatemala. Plaintiffs acknowledge that Guatemalan law allows nulidads and other appellate challenges. They counter only that they lacked a basis for appeal and thus were barred by ethical principles. But Plaintiffs had at least one good faith ground for appeal. Decree 34-97 makes an exception for claims filed “in a spontaneous and totally free manner.” Plaintiffs’ expert admitted that Plaintiffs’ Guatemalan action was “filed in a free and spontaneous manner.”Ok, hard stop -- how do you file a complaint in a "free and spontaneous manner"?
Do you "twerk" it as you hit the CM/ECF filing button?
Take a shot, hit the glass on the desk, and press "file"?
We need clarity and definition here -- can someone file a rehearing motion asap?
