Restrained indeed

The New York Times reports:

A New York State Supreme Court justice ruled yesterday that the liberal talk-radio network, Air America Radio, be put back on the air in Chicago, a day after it was dropped there because of a contract dispute. Justice Marylin G. Diamond issued a restraining order that would allow Air America's programs to be switched on today. Air America must post a $156,000 bond, a condition that its chairman, Evan Cohen, said the company would meet.

"Unbelievable," says Matt at Overtaken by Events.

I believe it just fine. Surely this is the same Justice Diamond who reported receiving threatening letters two years ago, which, said an FBI profiler who paid dues as a detective for the NYPD, were likely written by Diamond herself, perhaps in an effort to justify an expanded security detail. I have to think that if she actually did come up with a scheme like that, she can come up with a justification for any injunction imaginable.

I remember that judge. I'm shocked she's still on the bench. No, wait. It's NY. I'm surprised she's not governor or senator yet.

Well, Senator is probably out, since she actually has roots in New York. :)
