COURT OF APPEALS ALLOWS JUAN GUERRA’S MOTION TO STAY TO RUN OUT, LIKE THE CLOCK AT A FOOTBALL GAME WHEN THE END RESULT IS OBVIOUS TO EVERYONE

UPDATE: when this was posted last night it was current based on what was being reported by the court on its web page. This morning new orders were released. They dismissed the Application for Stay because Guerra failed to file a Mandamus with it. This is why I called it some type injunctive release. Under Mandamus the court listed "NO" Well now he has a chance to refile today. I do not know why the court originally listed the date for hearing on the 8th. Maybe a justice decided not to play along with the game of waiting for it to become moot.

On December 23rd Juan Guerra sought some type injunctive relief against Judge Bañales removing him from prosecuting certain LRGV politicos. The court docket indicates they will not even consider it until January 8, 2009. At that time they will dismiss it as moot. How sad. The corruption of the judiciary never ceases to amaze me. Applications for stay are normally granted or denied on the same day they are filed. This allows for an emergency appeal to the Texas Supreme Court or the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals.

The same court granted a stay against Villalobos prosecuting De Leon until it could decide whether Villalobos could be the prosecutor and victim at the same time. Maybe the Court of Appeal’s failure to act in Guerra's case is a window into the Villalobos-De Leon ruling. You cannot be both the victim and prosecutor.

Tuesday - I take the Herald to task for being party to defaming an innocent man. It is no longer if the Herald is going to go to Thursday, Friday, and Sunday only delivery, it is only a question of when.
