Supreme Court Delays Again

The Supreme Court appeals panel rejected the attempt of Gustavo Bustillo to recuse himself from the case because of a friendship with Zelaya. The court ruled his recusal "lacked legal justification." Apparently a judge isn't the best judge of when to recuse himself; the other judges know better.

The delay in reaching a verdict, however, continues, so the political effects are the same.

The three judge appeals panel met this morning and failed to reach a consensus on a verdict. They will now have to meet every business day until next Monday, at which time they must render a verdict according to Justice Rosa de Lourdes Paz Haslam.

So reset your Supreme Court alarm clocks for Monday, May 2.
