Kim Gardner, the far-left St. Louis District Attorney who was backed for her election by anti-American billionaire George Soros, was faced with yet another scolding by a state judge last week who called her office a “rudderless ship of chaos” for its disarray and lack of attention to serious criminal cases.
In fact, Gardner’s office is increasingly dancing closer to contempt of court charges as cases go un-prosecuted because her attorneys continue to miss court dates leaving no one to represent the state in criminal cases.
On Thursday, Missouri judge Michael Noble — appointed in 2015 to the 22nd District Court by Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon — blasted Gardner and her office for its ongoing negligence.
Though he didn’t go so far as to charge her with contempt, Noble nonetheless delivered serious criticism after several court dates passed with prosecutors being no-shows, in particular the refusal of Assistant Circuit Attorney Chris Desilets to appear in court at the appointed time.
“It appears that Ms. Gardner has complete indifference and a conscious disregard for the judicial process,” Noble said during a hearing to address the no-shows, Fox News reported.
“There is sufficient evidence of disdain and disrespect for the judicial process to determine that both Ms. Gardner and Mr. Desilets’ conduct support a finding of indirect criminal contempt. Furthermore, any attorney’s violation of a court’s order constitutes an intentional disobedience and shows a clear intent to disregard the power and authority of the judicial system process.”
“The circuit attorney’s office appears to be a rudderless ship of chaos,” Noble added from the bench. “Kim Gardner is the circuit attorney, and it is her duty to manage the caseload of each staff member. Chris Desilets has approximately 104 felony cases. Any prudent practitioner would expect such a caseload to create countless irreconcilable conflicts. It does not appear she has made any reasonable efforts to prevent the resulting chaos.”
