Remember back a few posts ago "Heartless" in which I described the utterly unfathomable amount of time Judge Kantor is taking to render his decision in the White case? Remember how screwy Judge Kantor's behavior was in scheduling hearings and then canceling them. Well, Judge Kantor is at it again. Several sources (AFSCME, Greg Hartman) report that after nearly 6 months of silence after canceling oral arguments in the White case, Judge Kantor has now inexplicably decided that they wouldn't be such a bad idea after all. So, now they've been scheduled for June 2009. I get the distinct feeling that Judge Kantor really, really, really, really (seriously) doesn't want to make a ruling in this case. Maybe he figures if he drags it on long enough that all the retirees will be dead and the question will become moot. I have no idea what his problem is, but concern for the speedy resolution of disputes doesn't seem one of them. Perhaps he's off his meds as well and is confused about all those things he understood so well that he decided he could rule from the bench without the need for those pesky oral arguments. Who knows, but I'm pretty disgusted with the whole thing. How about you?
