Even a Bush appointee can only take so much!
Federal Prosecutor Tanya Treadway probably has a fairly sweet life. Unlike many pain patients, her days probably don't involve a lot of worry about money or insurance. Her days are probably filled with a lot less agony than the former patients of Dr. Stephen Schneider, who is no longer treating them because Treadway is prosecuting Dr. Schneider for prescribing their pain medication. Nonetheless, the case Treadway is working in Kansas has taken some unexpected turns. On several occasions she has been faced with surprises from uppity defendants, some silly activists, and now... a Federal Judge. The judge has in so many words told Treadway that he will not be swayed by her threats, and to wipe the grin off her face!
In a contentious hearing Monday, Belot scolded Assistant U.S. Attorney Tanya Treadway for making what he termed "a government threat" to appeal his decision limiting the case to four deaths.
"Nobody threatens me in this courtroom," Belot said.
