The Terrence Taylor case has had two judge recusals and delay after delay in getting this black man justice after the story appeared as a national news story by Terrence McCoy in the Washington Post in December 2015. 18 motions were due to be heard May 14, 2021 in the black amputee burn victim's lawsuit against a Florida structured settlement factoring company, a legal matter that has been pending since March 2015. A number of the motions have been pending since December 2015.
"Gas Me Up Or It's a No Go, Because I'm Never Getting Home Home"
Now the hack of the Colonial Pipeline has created a dilemma for Judge Charles Maxfield. Forbes today reports of gas shortages that stretch to 11 states, including Virginia, which has reportedly gone dry! Judge Maxfield, who is from Fairfax Virginia and brought in after a pair of recusals in the Portsmouth Circuit, expressed concerns about being able to complete the 384 mile round trip under the circumstances. So the Terrence Taylor saga continues.
It has emerged that the hearing is now going to be delayed another 5 months. Why wasn't the hearing held over Zoom in the first place? Why, when Judge Maxfield "got the jitter bug" over the fuel line hack were the motion hearings not kept on schedule and held over Zoom or the equivalent? Why after 6 years is this black man being let down by the system over and over and over? I'm beginning to wonder if race has anything to do with it.
