So what can or should Judge Sullivan do in light of DOJ refusal to turn over documents?

Whatever he does, i sure hope other jurists support him and do so publicly, quickly, and loudly.

LOCK BARR UP!

3. He can find them in contempt of court and order fine or arrest. But arrest will be tricky

 

since the U.S. Marshals usually carry out enforcement, but the Marshals are actually part of DOJ, meaning the AG oversees them and he's not likely to allow the Marshals to arrest him or any of his attorneys.

It's likely that the Marshals will carry out the judge's order anyway since obeying the AG would mean they are defying a court order themselves. If they refuse, the judge can hold them in contempt, as well.

If the Marshals don't follow the judge's order, the judge could deputize someone outside of the executive branch to conduct the arrests.

But I have a feeling that the judge could find plenty of Marshals somewhere in the country who would be happy to make this arrest ...

I have no idea how this will play out. But it's a mess, isn't it?

6. Something fishy going on in DOJ. Need to know who is calling DOJ shots here.

Bluntly defy a judicial order? Not normal for practicing, real lawyers.

It sounds like mob boss trump said, "NO WAY"! Capo barr, with 'buffers', passed along 'the word'?

7. What would happen to you if you ignored a court order?

It should be the same thing.

8. It's a pretty simple procedure.

(1) The Judge asks the government lawyers who made the decision to not comply with the Court's order;
(2) Issue an order that the person identified in (1) appear and show cause why s/he should not be held in contempt;
(3) If that person does not appear as order, send the US Marshall to collect him or her;
(4) If the person does not convince the judge that s/he should not be held in contempt, order him/her jailed until the Court's order to provide the documents is obeyed.

See, easy-peasy.

13. Off with his head!



I dunno. What's the maximum penalty and how quickly can it be enforced? I'd just like regular consequences to happen instead of letting it slide.
