Another party aggrieved by Cogan sums it up nicely(scribd.com/doc/221728712):
"He falls presently – from greater heights still than Icarus, Phaethon, or even the brightest angel, who plunged as all favorites must. Article III could not have contemplated a more abysmal descent, although Yates predicted it. Indeed, if Judge Cogan had simply applied the laws and rules of the Constitution with the slightest tincture of good faith, I would not be finishing up a 30-page exposition detailing misconduct that would subject any other federal judge to impeachment by the U.S. Congress, if not indictment by the U.S. Department of Justice.”
We were busy running a theater, The Brooklyn Lyceum, when he decided that his oaths, the constitution, the amendments, Second Circuit precedents, Supreme Court precedents, Federal Law, Federal Rules of Evidence, Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, Federal Local Rules, Fed. Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure, Bankruptcy Local Rules, Logic and Common Sense were all optional. We fight until we can get back to running the Brooklyn Lyceum. Till then we will do what it takes, no matter the personal effort or time or expense, to stop Judge Brian Cogan and others like him.
