One Injunction Away from Armageddon

Oh to be a clerk on this court, for this case – a federal court in Hawaii is tasked with considering the following claim:

Walter L. Wagner and Luis Sancho contend that scientists at the European Center for Nuclear Research, or CERN, have played down the chances that the collider could produce, among other horrors, a tiny black hole, which, they say, could eat the Earth.

From the New York Times article, Asking a Judge to Save the World, and Maybe a Whole Lot More. Scott Greenfield at Simple Justice is “hopeful that the plaintiffs are wrong about this.” Norm Pattis says “Bring it on.”

Shades of United States v. The Progressive?

The case at bar is so difficult precisely because the consequences of error involve human life itself and on such an awesome scale…. A mistake in ruling against The Progressive will seriously infringe cherished First Amendment rights. If a preliminary injunction is issued, it will constitute the first instance of prior restraint against a publication in this fashion in the history of this country, to this Court’s knowledge. Such notoriety is not to be sought. It will curtail defendants’ First Amendment rights in a drastic and substantial fashion. It will infringe upon our right to know and to be informed as well. … A mistake in ruling against the United States could pave the way for thermonuclear annihilation for us all. In that event, our right to life is extinguished and the right to publish becomes moot.

Aside from the jurisdictional issues, how interesting would this Daubert hearing be?

Mr. Wagner, who lives on the Big Island of Hawaii, studied physics and did cosmic ray research at the University of California, Berkeley, and received a doctorate in law from what is now known as the University of Northern California in Sacramento. He subsequently worked as a radiation safety officer for the Veterans Administration.

Mr. Sancho, who describes himself as an author and researcher on time theory, lives in Spain, probably in Barcelona, Mr. Wagner said.

Um, probably in Barcelona?

    GOD TOLD THE JEWS OVER FIVE THOUSAND YEARS AGO NOT PLAY GOD
    DONT EVER FORGET THAT I THE LORD CREATED THE EARTH AND THE HEAVENS AND I CREATED YOU

    NOW WE ARE PLAYING A GAME OF POKER WITH OUR SOLAR SYSTEM.
    THE SCIENTISTS BACKED BY THEIR BANKERS AT CERN ARE SAYING DEAL US IN. THE PROBLEM IS THERE IS A POSSIBILITY THAT A SLOW MOVING BLACK WHOLE MAY BE CREATED BY THIS COLLIDER WHICH HAS THE POTENTIAL TO SEND US ALL INTO THE EONS OF TIME AND SPACE . ID RATHER GAMBLE WITH A HUNDRED ALL OUT NUCLEAR WARS THAN TO PLAY THIS HAND. THE WORLDS LEADERS SHOULD STOP THIS IMMEDIATELY.
