Federal judge excoriates DOJ lawyers for acting like their boss down the street

The federal judge who put at least a temporary kibosh on the president’s Executive Amnesty push has apparently had enough of Obama’s Justice Department lawyers trying to sell him on its constitutionality as if it were a promise about being able to keep his health insurance plan if he likes it:

In a 28-page order, U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen said the classes are required for the U.S. Department of Justice attorneys who wish to practice in the 26 states that are suing over the immigration policy. The order also told the government to provide Hanen a list of the immigrants who benefited prematurely from the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) policy.

Hanen said his sanctions stem from the administration’s attorneys purposely misleading his court about when the government would begin accepting applications for the program, and how many immigrants were mistakenly awarded work permits before the program was slated to start.
“The Government knowingly acted contrary to its representations to this Court on over 100,000 occasions,” Hanen wrote. “This Court finds that the misrepresentations detailed above: (1) were false; (2) were made in bad faith; and (3) misled both the Court and the Plaintiff States.”

Hanen also wrote that “such conduct is certainly not worthy of any department whose name includes the word ‘justice.'”

This judge’s next face-to-face dealing with members of the Obama administration will be either after the Supreme Court rules on the Executive Amnesty stay or during his seemingly inevitable deep-and-hard tax audit.
