Nicely said! Altonaga is the small one and O'Sullivan the big Daddy = Judge = the Court.
On the contrary, Altonaga is the main judge. She can overrule O'Sullivan. He is the magistrate judge. That is, the assistant judge: "In the United States federal courts, magistrate judges are judges appointed to assist district court judges in the performance of their duties."
I hope we will now soon see the real COP of the IH/ARreactor.
We have seen it. It is right there in the Penon report, uploaded by Rossi himself. The data is fake. The instruments shown in the report could not detect any excess heat. That report plus the testimony from Rossi, Murray and Smith show that the real COP is 1. There is no excess heat. Anyone can see that. Rossi tacitly agrees, which is why he made up the nonsense about the invisible mezzanine heat exchanger.
Surely you don't believe the mezzanine heat exchanger was real, do you?!? You are hopelessly naive and deluded if you do.
