JUDGE NELSON DENIES TEMPORARY INJUNCTION ON LINCOLN PARK

 
I am waiting to hear if the plaintiffs intend to take an interim appeal which could include a stay pending appeal which is basically a reinstatement of the TRO.
 
There is no doubt in my mind Judge Nelson was very studious in his deliberations.  But judges do make mistakes.  Because of a veto by then Governor Bush years ago Judge Nelson does not have to explain his ruling.  But a court of appeals would - and that could be a game changer. 
 
Obviously Michael Cowen needs to confer with his clients to see if they want to take an interim appeal.  You cannot win unless you fight. 
 
I suspect this is far from over.  I can only hope an interim appeal is taken.  But it is a lot of work - so we shall see.

The only inside information I have is he seems concerned about a jurisdiction issue.

Trial judges have less leeway than appellate judges.

I hope they take the interim appeal.

I do believe Judge Nelson was studious and did what he felt the law compelled of him.

I am attacked all of the time for going after judges - but I do it on evidence and there is no evidence judge Nelson was anything but studious

So does it mean the mayor and commissioners can give away the people's park???

Nope - but I will say if Cowen takes an interim appeal I believe UT will hold off on any final deal until the court rules - this is why I think the interim appeal is key.

Also even if UT were to seal a deal before the next election a new city commission could sue UT alleging fraud and theft and hold the entire mess up for years
