Breaking News From Court

Ken Pringle tells the petitioners:

“(Judge Katie A. Gummer) stated that while she was prepared to consider our application, her preference would be that we reach a mutual agreement without an order.  She then proposed an agreement on the following lines:   Dupont would agree not to release the Letter of  Withdrawal on his own discretion, and that if he were asked or ordered by the Mayor or Council to do so, he would provide the Court and me at least 24 hours’ notice (during business days), so that the Court could schedule a time for us to come in on an emergent basis to address our motion.  We would be required to file no further papers prior to that hearing.”

This means that if an attempt is made to kill the petition against the bundled ordinance before the unbundled ordinance becomes effective it would have to be approved first by Judge Gummer.  Hopefully the 20 days will pass quickly, without that attempt being made, and that the unbundling is accomplished.

    There needs to be a state law that holds Municipal Government Members accountable and ethical as it is for state lawmakers and employees. This fiasco would have never happened in a state transaction or bid.

    Obviously Judge Gummer’s wisdom reflects exactly the solution petitioner committee’s attorney offered to the council last night. You would think that the current administration knows by now that courts in our nation do not look kindly on political shenanigans involving federal monies.

    They do not respect the law and the courts and their officers. I think they look for any loopholes and “wiggle room” (Mr. Magovern used that expression at a meeting) they can find in order to get their way.
