Oral argument scheduled

The California appellate court has just scheduled oral arguments for my appeal. It will be at 9:30 am, Jan. 15, 2009.

After that, I will get a decision within three months, because of this:
SEC. 19. The Legislature shall prescribe compensation for judges of courts of record.
A judge of a court of record may not receive the salary for the judicial office held by the judge while any cause before the judge remains pending and undetermined for 90 days after it has been submitted for decision.
That is, the judges can delay the case up until oral argument where it formally becomes a submitted case. After that, they have to decide it on schedule or they will not get their paychecks. I am sure that they will decide it on schedule.

I am scheduled to be sentenced for contempt of court the next day. I will be sure to remind the appellate court that I could be sent to jail for five days for exercising my free speech.
