Blogger Comments: Sheriff Ana Franklin Another Opportunity to Lie. It looks as if Sheriff Ana Franklin gets another opportunity to be seen in Federal Court. Sounds like the Sheriff who speaks with a forked tongue will get to explain to a judge why she should not be held in contempt of court for taking inmate food funds. This should be interesting. Spin City here we come. Will Billable Barney be representing Franklin?
Definition of a Motion for Order to Show Cause:
In the legal system, an Order to Show Cause is a court order requiring an individual or entity to explain, justify, or prove something. In the U.S., courts frequently use orders to show cause to initiate a court proceeding that needs to be heard outside the usual schedule, such as when a temporary order is being sought. In these cases, the court needs additional information before the judge could make such a decision.
