Governor Wants Supreme Court To Decide on Furlough Authority NOW

On March 2, 2010, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger petitioned to consolidate the appeals in seven cases that challenged his right to order state employee furloughs. The petition also asks that the cases be transferred to the Supreme Court immediately. Since the furloughs were instituted last year, 27 cases have been filed, and there are currently ten appeals pending in those  cases.

As pointed out at Legal Pad:

…It’s not like the trial courts have been issuing consistent rulings. … All these lawsuits were probably headed to the Supreme Court anyway… But it’s also shaping up to be a big political headache for the judiciary.
