Bill's "Up" Again In This One

50 days to trial
Very good news today. The Assistant U.S. Attorney on my case has been yanked off it, kicking and screaming. This is very unusual and a very good sign. As I have mentioned, the dictatorship has had two major problems in prosecuting me since day one:
1) There is no evidence against me; and
2) Someone else has already confessed.
The indictment against me seems to have been obtained by more than usually egregious prosecutorial misconduct (they refuse to release or disclose the grand jury transcripts to my attorney) and I don't know why the hell I'm down here. The strategy seems to have been to bring me here, torture me, and plant jailhouse snitiches on me to get me to "confess", etc. Since I have gone catatonic under stress and been moved to an isolator, that plan is now an epic fail.
So the dictatorship has removed my prosecutor and installed a new, more experienced individual to determine whether the case can be salvaged. It can't. My guess is that some or all of the charges against me will be dropped, probably about a week before the trial, the point where they're going to have to ease up on me a bit here in order to prepare me to be taken out in public, like they did with George Zimmerman. We'll see. If not, I'm coasting to an acquittal. I just have to keep not speaking to people, which is easy now that I have trouble speaking at all and I am violently ill all day.
My civil rights suit against the jail is apparently going to be certified, although I'm going to be ordered to make one more revision. Under the Prison Litigation Reform Act, which was designed to choke off inmates' access to the court system by making us run a legal gauntlet to the point where just about anything short of electrodes on the balls won't be deemed sufficient cause, a court has to find my claims meritorious on the face for a suit to proceed.
I have not yet seen the order, but I am told the court accepted the substance of my claim--one, that I shall be allowed to argue for several injuries against the jail, and two, that I shall be allowed to argue that my weight loss, beard loss, headaches, lack of sleep, and so forth constitute physical injuries entitling me to damages, including for emotional distress. It's a small thing, but it's a start.
