Grist for the Mill: Old Guard Council applies for emergency stay to stop full council vote tonight



Word on the street is the Old Guard council has filed an emergency application to stop Judge Bariso's order to (finally) hold a full vote of the City Council on the Jim Doyle appointment.

Judge Bariso is reportedly on vacation and so there will be no opportunity to quash the request.

As MSV said just earlier, MORTe is fully invested in this obstruction tactic.

Talking Ed Note: These type of requests are typically not granted but the timing of the request with the holidays breathes life into the Old Guard sabotage.

For now.

Update: Technically this is a request to ask for an interim stay, called an interlocutory appeal.  MSV will try to identify more on this if at all possible.  For those interested, here's more in NJ.
