In reading the sentencing, I see "attempted to convince Gustaf to invalidate his ballot" and "Had Gustaf heeded Fitzgerald's suggestion" and I see interpretations because I don't view the suggestion to go invalidate a ballot. The proof is a 11 lines of chat over 30 minutes. He says he thinks there is an error and explains what he thinks it is.

I'm worried what people can spin out of a conversation if it's enough to get someone banned. I remember sending a pm to someone thanking a voter for a high preference vote even though  I thought the vote would not count because of a mistake done by the voter. The person could have gone to court and claim I tried to make them modify the vote and get me banned.

Yep, it's frankly a pretty insane ruling. Even if there was reliable evidence that Fitzgerald said those things, they are definitely not illegal. It's a testament to how far the legal system of this once great country has deteriorated under the Lumine regime.

Lol, it was a pretty obvious attempt to make me edit my ballot. And while I've been around long I don't really keep up with the ever changing laws of Atlasia so I wouldn't necessarily have known it'd invalidate my ballot. The attempt was done really stupidly of course, but that's another matter.

I don't know if there's any mechanism for change of venue, but I'd like to point out it would be hard to complete a fully impartial jury in Pacific which was sharply divided during the very crisis.

If I recall correctly, they can choose an another region for the jury.

The Pacific also has such a small pool of voters that it would be difficult obviously to do so as well.

As an originalist I believe that the court should support the founding fathers' intent. The fact that Arizona was not placed within a region in the 4th constitution clearly means Arizona was meant to be independent. How could a website full of electoral map nerds miss an entire state??

As one of those founders, I can assure that was not the case. Tongue I am sure every other founder as well as statements dating back to mid May will verify that. Wink It was a typo, and of course you are bringing out your patented loophole abuse to stir up trouble again. If you would use your emense skills to help this game instead of trying to break it, everyone would be so much happier. Either let it go and let others have a chance or return and as a constructive participant rather than a legal terrorist.

I happen to believe stirring up a little bit of controversy can be constructive - you can't have progress without a bit of chaos! Besides - every story needs a villian, no?

Besides if I was going to do something that could be fairly described as "legal terrorism", I promise you that at the very least my shenanigans would have also included the other two states you founding fathers forgot about... Wink

Crossposting from Arizona thread
I, for one, would like to know how Arizona, should the Kingdom win this case, be treated. Will it get a new board? A new wiki? Will there be a parliamentary system?
