Something sure happened in the courtroom that day, and DG looked guilty as hell there in the video. But I don't have any problem with the result if there was insufficient evidence to prove what happened one way or another.
I think what happened here is a relatively inexperienced judge [with a reputation for laziness and who has clashed with DG several times in the past] failed to put together a bulletproof contempt case, and some excellent lawyers using a sound legal argument convinced an even less-experienced judge that there wasn't enough evidence to sustain the allegation. That's all.
So be it. I do think the electorate needs to remember this matter when these two judges [Hill and Geck] stand for election, whenever that may be. I was underwhelmed with Hill's description of what Genis was doing at the wrong end of the table as "fiddling" with papers. That seemed a pretty vague word to me for a judge to use in such a serious context, but I've been unimpressed with Brian Hill for a very long time now.
The bottom line is that I think DG dodged a bullet here, and I don't think he's as smooth as he thinks he is. I believe sooner or later his antics are going to come around and really bite him.

"I was collecting a piece of evidence." Cute, DG. Keep your eyes on your own paper next time and maybe there won't be any confusion about what you are or are not doing.

I agree, buckwheat. I hope this scumbag plaintiff goes away forever, but the incident must have been pretty bad [and much of it caught on camera] for the sheriff to fire the custody deputies so quickly. There doesn't seem to have been too much time wasted in prosecuting these two guys, either.

14noscams, you continue to allege wrongdoing on the part of Beutel while at the same time you dismiss and minimize new allegations of wrongdoing on the part of Darryl Genis, evidently because you and he feel that he's a crusader for what you see as The Right and the Good.
However, if Genis wants to continue his crusade for the Right and the Good [while at the same time making a lot of money], then he needs to follow the rules set by the State Bar and other entities [e.g., judges like Hill that he clearly has no respect for] for how to act in a courtroom and how to do his job. If he doesn't follow these rules, then he will ultimately lose his privilege to practice law. Even the great and powerful Darryl Genis must follow the rules. He is not allowed to cheat, which is basically what he's alleged to have done in the most recent case.
This has absolutely nothing to do with Beutel, though you seem to think it does somehow. But keep grinding your axes though, because it's pretty funny.

14noscams, the answers to both of your questions is yes, not that this has anything to do with the subject of this Indy article or with Officer Beutel. Repeating someone else's version of facts does not make them true nor does it prove anything. But please keep grinding your axes.

Cigar, I believe the document was written by Judge Hill. S. Carr is just the clerk in the office that accepted and stamped the document for filing.

Exactly so, Ken_Volok. Actions have consequences. The behavior of many of the cyclists in past cruiser runs has resulted in this enforcement effort each year. It's necessary.

If these serious allegations are true, then he needs to be disciplined. DG, you need to keep your eyes on your own paper, chief.

The one handyman I used in the past who was listed/rated on Angie's List [and who used this rating in his advertising] did not impress me at all.

I don't have a problem with public scrutiny into how the Sheriff's Department handled the welfare check of Rodger before the rampage, though hindsight is always 20/20, and Mr. Cappello's righteous rage and indignation seems pretty self-serving to me.
I also have no doubt that Mr. Cappello and others are lining up to sue the Sheriff's Department and any other person or entity they can think of. The killer's father is running his own media/PR campaign to show what a great guy he is, so I'm assuming he expects to be a target of future litigation, and rightfully so.
