I can assure the Gentle Reader that both parties in the Schmalfeldt v. Hoge appeal of the peace order issued against Bill Schmalfeldt hope that the Court of Appeals will resolve the case quickly. However, the Court runs on its own schedule. Some cases take a while.
For example, consider the Kimberlin v. Walker appeal last year. (Brett Kimberlin appealed the Circuit Court’s denial of one of his peace order petitions against Aaron Walker.) Kimberlin filed his petition on 7 May, 2012. The Court of Appeals didn’t get around to denying it until 22 October. That’s a delay of 24 weeks, much longer than the usual 6 to 8.
I hope they don’t take so long with the Cabin Boy’s appeal.
