The Commission adjourned for today at 1:00 p.m., and in a surprise announcement, Commission Counsel Art Vertlieb then said that there would be no session on Monday, January 23, 2012, contrary to earlier indications. He apparently isn’t prepared to put a witness on the stand Monday.

Counsel presenting a case is usually expected to have witnesses lined up and ready to go so that all valuable time set aside for a hearing is used and days are not wasted.

In this hearing, the schedule continues to be very unpredictable, creating difficulties for us and other counsel.
