Today's hearing on the Bicycle Plan

Okay, as one of the Petitioners in the litigation, I have an obvious bias. But based on the grilling he gave the city attorney (Audrey Pearson) this morning in court, it seemed clear to me that Superior Court Judge Busch is probably going to order the city to do an EIR on the Bicycle Plan. Judge Busch said that the decision might come within days or it might take as long as a month. From the perspective of one who knows the case pretty well, it was also clear that Busch had done his homework. The city should start thinking about whether they're going to appeal his decision. On the other hand, after watching Judge Busch in action for several hours now, I don't think they can count on his decision leaving any grounds for an appeal. Busch doesn't strike me as a guy who likes to leave a lot of loose ends dangling.
