Excerpt from Argument of John Quincy Adams: Before the Supreme Court of the United States, in the Case of the United States, Appellants, Vs;; Cinque, and Others, Africans, Captured in the Schooner Amistad, by Lieut. Gedney, Delivered on the 24th of February and 1st of March, 1841; With a Review Of At the date of this letter, this statement of Mr. Forsyth was strictly true. All the proceedings of the government, Executive and Judicial, in this case had been founded on the assumption that the two Spanish slave-dealers were the only parties aggrieved that all the right was on their side, and all the wrong on the side of their surviving self-emancipated victims. I ask your honors, was this justice? No. It was not so considered by Mr. For syth himself. It was sympathy, and he so calls it, for in the pre ceding page of the same letter referring to the proceedings of this Government from the very first intervention of Lieut. Ged ney, he says.

With its origins in the seventeenth century, the Maryland Court of Appeals is one of the oldest in the United States. Located in the middle of the east coast, it was confronted with most of the key legal issues that affected the colonies and early United States. Bond's was the first history of the court from its origins around 1649 to the adoption of the state's current constitution in 1867. A valuable study, it is based almost entirely on primary sources. Bond [1873-1943] was the Chief Justice of the Court from 1924 to the end of his life.

There is a court in heaven. It is in session NOW. The Judge is God. The Defendant is God (Christ Jesus). The Plaintiff is Satan. The Witnesses are the people (on earth). God established the Supreme Court of Heaven after the creation of the heavens and the earth. He established it because he had created beings both in heaven and on earth that had freewill. When their freewill would lead them against his will, then he would need to use this court to judge them. Either angels or people, all would have to face the judgement of God. No creature has power to escape God's judgement in heaven. In some cases compiled in this book of revelations, God appears in the court as the Defendant, because even his creation is allowed to file cases against him. So if God is the Defendant in some cases, then who is the Judge? God himself is the Judge. He is a perfect God such that he is able to preside as the Judge and the Defendant of the same case. He can pass a judgment against himself and also sentence himself! The Cross is a proof of that. Case 1: Judge: God Plaintiff: Satan Defendant: God (Jesus) Witnesses: Adam, Eve Case 2: Judge: God Plaintiff: Satan Defendant: God (Jesus) Witness: Noah Case 3: Judge: God Plaintiff: Satan Defendant: God (Jesus) Witness: Abraham Case 4: Judge: God Plaintiff: Satan Defendant: God (Jesus) Witness: Ruth Case 5: Judge: God Plaintiff: Satan Defendant: God (Jesus) Witness: Elijah Case 6: Judge: God Plaintiff: Satan Defendant: God (Jesus) Witness: Job Case 7: Judge: God Plaintiff: Satan Defendant: God (Jesus) Witness: Peter Case 8: Judge: God Plaintiff: Satan Defendant: God (Jesus) Witnesses: Abel Case 9: Judge: God Plaintiff: Satan Defendant: God (Jesus) Witness: Lot Case 10: Judge: God Plaintiff: Satan Defendant: God (Jesus) Witness: Gideon Case 11: Judge: God Plaintiff: Satan Defendant: God (Jesus) Witness: John the Baptist Case 12: Judge: God Plaintiff: Satan Defendant: God (Jesus) Witness: Stephen Case 13: Judge: God Plaintiff: Satan Defendant: God (Jesus) Witnesses: Isaac Case 14: Judge: God Plaintiff: Satan Defendant: God (Jesus) Witness: Joseph Case 15: Judge: God Plaintiff: Satan Defendant: God (Jesus) Witness: Samson Case 16: Judge: God Plaintiff: Satan Defendant: God (Jesus) Witness: Mary Case 17: Judge: God Plaintiff: Satan Defendant: God (Jesus) Witness: Lazarus ...
