Supreme Court Splits 5 Ways!

The full body of 15 Supreme Court justices voted last Wednesday to appoint a committee of 5 justices to render an opinion on the restitution of Zelaya. That report was due today. However, instead of the single expected report, it received five separate reports, one from each of the justices on the commission. This provoked delays in the discussion of the whole court as they dealt with the contradictions between the separate opinions. The court is now studying how to combine them into a single report to Congress. They have not set themselves a deadline, but no doubt the State Department isn't worried about that, since they consider a restitution that happens any time before Zelaya's term expires as "timely," so, no rush on that report, your honors.
