Superior Court Associate Judge David A. Wiseman Monday denied former attorney general Edward T. Buckingham's request for a status conference in his criminal case.
Wiseman ruled that, as he had stated previously, because Buckingham is still absent from the court's jurisdiction, he remains disentitled from having the court consider any motion or argument on his behalf.
Furthermore, the judge pointed out, without any extraordinary circumstances, until such times as Buckingham appears before the court or informs the court that he and the government have reached a mutual agreement to revisit, modify and/or rescind the previous orders, the court will entertain no further motions from him.
“Further use of this court's time and resources in filings that do not comport with these conditions shall not be tolerated,” Wiseman said.
Attorney Brien Sers Nicholas, counsel for Buckingham, filed in Superior Court last week an ex parte request for a status conference in his criminal case.
The Office of Public Auditor filed criminal misdemeanor charges against Buckingham.
