Matthew Petersen doesn’t know Latin

I went to a second-tier law school (Univ. of Denver, College of Law, now known as Sturm College of Law) and I practiced law for little over 10 years before starting my career in IT. My legal background is not in litigation and I mostly did administrative/corporate law.

I’ve learned today that Donald Trump’s Judicial Nominee, Matthew Petersen couldn’t answer what motion in limine is.

I couldn’t believe my own ears. To be fair, I would not have been able to answer the previous question concerning the “Daubert standard” myself.

But motion in limine? Come on!! You didn’t even have to go to law school to know that as long as you know Latin.

Matthew Petersen looks like an Ivy League type who must have studied Latin in high school. Probably comes from a well connected family. So how does he not know what in limine means?

I am absolutely disgusted at our political system and I am embarrassed as a legal professional that a licensed attorney can’t even answer what motion in limine is!!!!
