Oral Arguments for 01/30/14 Cancelled(updated 1/21/2014)
Judge is Preparing to Issue Decision Shew v.Malloy
After reviewing thousands of pages of documents from both the plaintiffs and the defendants, Judge Alfred Covello cancelled oral arguments. A decision may come within the next several days, but it may come later. We will inform CCDL members as soon as possible. The fact that the arguments have been canceled are in no way an indicator of how the Judge will rule. Whatever the outcome is, appeals will be filed by us or the State.
From Judge Covello:
