Here's how oral argument went in front of the 3d on that Carona/Suarez thing:
At Thursday’s hearing, the three appeals judges grilled Corona’s lawyer, William Petros, who could not get a word in edgewise before the sharp questions began.
“Is there any basis whatsoever” for withholding the results? Judge Alan Schwartz asked.
“How is [Corona] possibly harmed if the votes are released?” added Judge Frank Shepherd.
“The public would have knowledge that could later be disavowed,” Petros responded.
“So what?” Shepherd replied. Later, he added: “Does your client not have confidence in the electorate of this county?”
“Yes,” Petros answered.
