A Tale of Two Hoovers
(The Feature Article)
Why don't the 99% of us who arent offended quit catering to the 1% who are?
Our longtime friend of the Libertarian Enterprise has been released from jail after selling his car to post bond. He would prefer to retain a lawyer rather than depend on the tender mercies of a public defender. He has identified a lawyer he would like to retain, who wants $5,000 as an initial retainer. Costs are estimated as follows:
Our friend maintains his innocence with respect to the charges, and while the Libertarian Enterprise will not comment on the particulars of the situation, we do believe that everyone is owed a fair trial and the ability to retain a lawyer, with whom one is able to communicate in confidentiality. To that end, we have set up a GiveSendGo page, and our friend, and we, would be extremely grateful for any help our readers would be able to kindly provide.
Donations will show up as "Rule of Law", and will be directed to an account in Cathy's name which will then be provided to chosen counsel.
Yours in Liberty,
Rylla and Cathy Smith

Due Process of Law
by Jim Davidson
In early June 2022, I was stopped in Kane county, Utah. The next day, a very strange thing happened. A judge, Gary Johnson, who I’ve since learned is regarded as a libertarian by other libertarian jurists in Utah, held a hearing.
I was not invited to the hearing, nor notified of it, nor afforded the opportunity to confront the witnesses against me. As a result, I was held without bail until early September.
