Looking for Elvis

That's an ugly rumor started to explain what Judge Kantor is doing instead of making his final ruling in the Arken/Robinson cases. It has been quite awhile since the last status conference (see over to your left and you'll notice this little counter that keeps ticking off the seconds, minutes, hours, and days since that status conference in August). At the time I'm writing this, Judge Kantor has managed to tick off more than 103 days since hearing the latest arguments. That works out to about 3.5 months so far. I *hope* he's not trying to best his previous record for delaying a preliminary ruling in those same cases - almost 8 months if I recall correctly. In the meantime, Judge Kantor, if you are really looking for Elvis, here's a tip direct from the source. Elvis is dead. Kicked the bucket. Pushing up daisies. Singing to the Lord. In short, it's a great snark hunt in which nothing ever will be found. Stop looking already and rule.

ROFL..Good Marc. I do often wonder what's up with the good judge..."justice delayed is justice denied".

I can't find any evidence that the Judge has particular complex cases competing for his time. His last ruling *was* complicated by several very difficult cases that required considerable research. I don't see that this time. I can only assume that he's really, really, really doing his homework to decrease the likelihood of being overturned by either the Oregon Court of Appeals or the Supreme Court, or both. No Judge likes to be overturned.
