========================================================================

Judge OscarMeyr's Arguments:

Thanks to the evidence BobTHJ provided, these are straightforward:
comex did not comply with the relevant provision of the Vote Market
contract, resulting in a ruling in CFJ 2011 of GUILTY, nor did e
comply with the terms set down in CFJ 1915, resulting in a ruling in
CFJ 2012 of GUILTY.

There has been a LOT of criminal CFJs these past two months.  I
believe a strong message needs to be sent to the Agoran community.  I
sentence comex to hang by the --

Oh wait, that's not a valid sentence.

I sentence comex to CHOKEY for 90 days (as R1742 is a Power 1.5 rule).

========================================================================

Judge OscarMeyr's Evidence:

BobTHJ's evidence:

Per the Vote Market agreement:

10. When the VP of a first-class party falls below 50, e is OBLIGATED to
increase it to 50 or above within 60 days.

Jan 15, 2008 23:09 - comex -50VP (Buy ticket filled by pikhq)
- comex spent all 50 of his VP in taking this action leaving him with
0 remaining during the next 60 days comex took no actions to increase
eir VP.

Mon, 10 Mar 2008 23:09 - comex's fails to return VP >= 50
- since this date comex has been in breach of section 10 of the Vote
Market agreement. During that time he has made only two attempts to
increase eir VP.

Wed, 18 Jun 2008 15:14 - Bank of Agora transfers 21VP to comex
- this was when comex recently robbed the Bank of Agora and its VP
were transferred to em.

Mon, 23 Jun 2008 15:05 - comex +10VP (Sell Ticket filled by Goethe)
- this is the one and only Sell Ticket comex has posted since Jan 15th
when he first fell below the 50VP threshold.

========================================================================

Appellant omd's Arguments:

Ignoring the fact that I spent my 50 VP on **nothing** (pikhq took my
VP, called me a fool, and left the Vote Market, no longer obligated to
perform the action which I paid all those VP for em to do), I believe,
as I may be about to demonstrate, that it is very unlikely that I can
get back up to 50 VP, even if I sell out *all* my votes, which I am
about to do.  Remember that although I have lots of VP now, I am
obligated to give most of it back to the Bank of Agora.

So I appeal CFJ 2011 too, at least until I can gather evidence.

Duly taken into account.  For CFJs 2011 and 2012, I rule GUILTY,
CHOKEY, and only 15 days.  {1/6 the original sentence.}
