“Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.” Judge Victor Marrero, writing in a 103 page Decision and Order dismissing the President’s civil suit under the Civil Rights Act (more on that below), neither gives a fish, nor teaches how to fish — rather he explains what fishing is. Trump v. Vance, 19 Civ. 8694 (VM), 2020 WL 4861980 (S.D.N.Y. Aug. 20, 2020). Within weeks, the President had appealed to the Second Circuit, which upheld Judge Marrero’s Decision, but left fishing for an artistic metaphor. The President has again appealed (seeking an emergency stay), this time to the Supreme Court, where, as of this writing, the matter stands.
