The United States Supreme Court has once again made a mockery of all that is good, right,and just in this country when it ended it's current session without ruling on the pivotal Parking Rights Case of Click vs. The District of Columbia.
Needless to say, the legal community was shocked when it learned that the high court had adjourned without addressing the issue. "I was shocked!" quipped Serge B. Samovar, attorney for the defendant, Adam Click.
Mr. Samovar went on to say that, "Mr. Click has a long history of obeying the law, starting as a youth and continuing well into his teens. That Mr. Click ignored repeated warnings, and continued to sleep in his car over-night, makes no difference to the merits of this legal proceeding. How the court could ignore such a vital case is beyond me."
Mr. Click's alleged crimes took place over a three year period starting with the original parking violation and culminating with his arrest on trespassing and lewd and lascivious behavior charges when he was finally found in the predawn hours of April 2nd of this year, while wading in the reflecting pool, located on the National Mall between the Lincoln and Washington Memorials.
According to the arresting officer's report: "One Mr. Adam Click was observed wading [in the reflecting pool], unclothed except for a lion cloth, and carrying a spear. When he was coaxed out of the pool his only statement to police was, "I'm not scaring the fish! I'm hypnotizing them!"."
In his counter suit, Mr. Click denied any and all charges, and asked that the charges be thrown out for lack of evidence. The Municipal Court for the District of Columbia disagreed which prompted an appeal to the Supreme Court, on Mr. Click's behalf, by Mr. Samovar, a prominent member of local bars.
Unfazed by the high court's indifference Mr. Click was able to contact one of the justices who sits on the court. He received a typically high handed, and entirely rude rebuke. To Witt: "Listen, Mr. Click. Just pay the damn twenty three dollars and be done with it! Good Bye!"
Mr. Samovar has vowed to continue fighting for justice on Mr. Click's behalf, even if it means "Going all the way to Judge Judy!".
