While not calling the SDFL Judge who appointed a special master to oversee the government's seizure of documents from an elderly Florida retiree's home "a loose Cannon" - the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals (Motto: "Proudly ruling for the government since the old 5th Circuit was disbanded") STRUCK DOWN Judge Aileen Cannon's decision to appoint a special master in the case involving the government's search of the 45th President's home and club in West Palm, Beach.
"We are faced with a choice: apply our usual test; drastically expand the availability of equitable jurisdiction for every subject of a search warrant; or carve out an unprecedented exception in our law for former presidents. We choose the first option so the case must be dismissed."
Give the 111th some props for being honest and consistent. Go with their motto and always rule for the government; rule for defendants and let the genie out of the bottle on every search warrant; or create a Trump exception. They went with the usual and comfortable route of denying relief to a target of a federal investigation. Appointed for life, the former president's threats are meaningless to judges who are going no higher than they already are.
