Beds and benches

Madame Justice Cameron, as requested by Williams Government's shy and retiring leagle beagle Jackie Brazil, has ruled on the procedural question concerning cross-examination.

Not-very-long-story even shorter: Williams Government lost.

Perhaps Madame Justice got up on the wrong side of bed? That is apparently an occupational hazard for judges in Newfoundland and Labrador.

And, oh yeah — thanks to far-sighted amendments by the same genius legislative drafting crew, utterly oblivious to the Law of Unintended Consequences, who brought you unnecessary by-elections and MHA pension legislation that, for some reason, doesn't act prospectively, her ruling is not subject to appeal.
