We got the Innocence Project to take his case, but our high court won't.
According to another piece in the Blade, Father Robinson's case will be featured in an episode of Forensics: You Decide on Investigation Discovery at 10 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 12.
In its October 5 summary disposition order (page 7), the Court denied leave without comment.
It's disappointing, but I've come to expect disappointment in this sad affair. The next step in the criminal litigation is a hearing on the many motions pending before Lucas County Judge Gene Zmuda. The case has been the subject of repeated continuances for months. In September, Father Robinson's attorneys filed objections to these postponements and asked for oral argument, but the prosecutor was given until November 2 to file more pleadings.
So maybe there will be a hearing... in a month... or two or three....
I really do think they're waiting for him to give up the ghost.
I can't blame Judge Zmuda entirely for his dawdling. Sometimes I wish I'd never heard of this case, too.
