There’s an unexpected reshuffling of the calendar at the state Court of Appeals. All of the hearings that were scheduled for next week (the week beginning Nov. 26) have been postponed, to be re-scheduled later.
Word is it’s because Judge Cressie Thigpen lost his bid for re-election this month. He was the only judge among the three incumbents running who lost. Thigpen will be replaced by Chris Dillon in January.
Some attorneys are upset because the cancelations force them to reshuffle cases that are already on track.
