Delay indicates loss

District Judge Amy Meachum has taken all day on a hearing to overturn Mayor Adler’s orders to close bars and restaurants at the peak time of their business tonight, from 10:30 pm until 6 a.m. on New Year’s Day. An all-day hearing doesn’t bode well, if history counts, for the governor’s bid to overturn the orders. But having won a similar case against El Paso County, the state isn’t likely to give up.

UPDATE: Indeed, the state lost, Covid won. Not a good look for a Republican governor.

MORE: Then, 24 hours too late, the state won on appeal. Guess Adler won’t be doing it again.
