Judge Lynn "Misconduct" Norton Violates the Constitution Again with Excessive Bail

May 30th, 2023 | by Diego Rodriguez

Last week, serial violator of the Constitution, Judge Lynn Norton, again demonstrated her bias and wickedness by again violating both the U.S. Constitution and the Idaho State Constitution.

Apparently, a warrant of arrest was issued against me for "contempt of court." I was only made aware of this warrant because it was in the news and not because I have been formally served papers or made aware of the warrant directly by the court.

In fact, when I contacted Judge Lynn Norton's assistant to send me a copy of the warrant she responded by saying:

I am assuming the word "now" is a typo that should be "not." So it should read "I am not allowed…"

So apparently, in America, you can have a warrant issued for your arrest without you knowing, being made aware of it, or being given any documentation describing how, what, or why you have a warrant for your arrest.

I likewise called the Ada County Sheriff's department and was told that while they had the warrant in their possession, they could not give me a copy of it and that they couldn't share with me any details of what it said. Yay, freedom!

Judge Lynn Norton Violates the 8th Amendment:

I have exposed Judge Lynn Norton's judicial misconduct, her incompetence, her corruption, and her biased and partial judgments on multiple occasions as you can see in the links at the bottom of this webpage.

Because I have exposed her, it is quite evident that she is now retaliating against me and is going so far as to break the law in order to exact her retribution upon me.

While I still don't know the details of my warrant for arrest because of a "Contempt of Court" charge, I do know that corrupt Judge Lynn Norton set my bail at a whopping $25,000!

To put things in perspective, just last week I sat through a video arraignment hearing and watched as a judge issued bail for several criminals for crimes that included things like: assault and battery, possession of methamphetamines, domestic violence, grand theft auto, grand theft larceny, and more—and the highest bail set was $250. One guy had bail set for $5 and another for $10. This was all in Ada County.

But for me, my bail in a CIVIL CASE, not a criminal case, where absolutely no crime has been committed, and where to the best of my knowledge, I have a contempt of court charge for refusing to pay a fee to the plaintiff's attorney because the order issued to me was fraudulent and unlawful, and for refusing to take down offensive pages on my website, which is my 1st amendment right, corrupt Judge Lynn Norton has issued a $25,000 bail for me.

That figure should haunt and terrify you. The median per capita income for Idahoans is $31,509 according to the U.S. Census Bureau. That means my bail was set at almost 80% of the entire annual income for the average Idahoan!

It is clearly excessive by any measure. Yet the 8th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution very clearly states:

8th Amendment: Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.

The law is very simple and very cut and dry. In fact, even the Idaho State Constitution affirms the very same thing:

IDAHO STATE CONSTITUTION SECTION 6. RIGHT TO BAIL – CRUEL AND UNUSUAL PUNISHMENTS PROHIBITED. All persons shall be bailable by sufficient sureties, except for capital offenses, where the proof is evident or the presumption great. Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excess fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.

Corrupt Judge Lynn Norton just violated the 8th Amendment. Her "body count" for how many rights she has violated in this case just keeps racking up!

And to add insult to injury, note that even the Idaho State Statute governing "contempt" charges puts a limit of the fine to only $5,000:

So corrupt Judge Lynn "Misconduct" Norton has placed my bail at 5X the amount allowed by Idaho statute for the fine for contempt charges.

Last but not least, the very specific instructions that govern how a judge must act and rule in the State of Idaho, the Idaho Rules of Civil Procedure, state quite plainly in Rule # 75(e)(2) that when issuing a warrant for "contempt of court," that "…the court must set a reasonable bail." You can see the screenshot below:

So the U.S. Constitution, the Idaho State Constitution, and the Idaho Rules of Civil Procedure which govern a judge's actions ALL agree in unity—that excessive bail may not be set. Additionally, Idaho State Statute sets a fine for contempt at a maximum of $5,000. So Judge Lynn "Misconduct" Norton has only demonstrated herself AGAIN to be a serial violator of the Constitution and individual rights.

So the question now is, is there any judge in Idaho's history who has demonstrated more judicial misconduct in a single case than the serial violator of the Constitution, Judge Lynn "Misconduct" Norton?
