In CNN"s July 20, 2023 See ex-GOP lawmaker's reaction to Trump's trial date after 07:50 is the following exchange between CNN's Anchor and Chief Political Correspondent Dana Bash and Senior Legal Affairs Correspondent Paula Reid when discussing US District Judge Aileen Cannon's setting of a trial date for the classified document's case:
BASH: What does it tell you though about can we read any tea leaves into the judge's decision to kind of split the difference between putting it on the calendar in a place where we are pretty confident that the Republican primaries are going to be over, but not before the general election?
REID: So we have to remember, and I saw this in court on Tuesday. This is a judge who was eviscerated by the bar and by other judges of her decision that she made related to this case several months back when it appeared that she was really leaning in favor of former President Trump by offering to agreeing to give a special master to go through the classified documents.
I assume that "eviscerated" refers to the expression of strong criticism rather than a medical procedure, but when it comes to "the bar" I'm confused. It seems to me there are two different interpretations:
- Wikipedia's Bar (law): "In law, the bar is the legal profession as an institution."
- Wikipedia's Bar association: "A bar association is a professional association of lawyers as generally organized in countries following the Anglo-American types of jurisprudence."
Both have the capability to publicly criticize decisions of judge's decisions, as well as the judges themselves, but I'm not sure both did in this case, so I'd like to ask:
Question: Which "Bar" eviscerated US District Judge Aileen Cannon after granting the special master review of documents?
If both did somehow, but one did in a substantially more public and vocal way, that one would still be the preferred answer.
