Circuit Judge Gibson Suspends District Judge's Policy on Objections
You might remember my earlier post titled; Judge Tells Attorneys to Zip It, where I discussed the "standing objection" rule put in place by District Judge Delahanty. Here is an article by the Courier Journal on Circuit Judge Susan Gibson's order telling Delahanty to temporarily stop enforcement of his rule. Judge Gibson wrote that Delahanty’s policy, “imposes a significant limitation” on the Jefferson County Attorney’s office. While she stopped short of declaring the rule, illegal as the County Attorney's office has requested, she did reserve the right to do just that after further review of the arguments. Click on my earlier post to see my criticisms of the rule.
