2. I think Judge Sharpe let himself get painted into a corner.
The DoJ drags the NYSBoE into court and tells them to computerize their elections. The NYSBoE sticks all four in the air. The Judge figures it settled. Perhaps His Honor should have considered the interveners more thoughtfully, rag tag as I think they may have been.

I would have thought it's a red flag for the bench when prosecution and plaintiff are getting along so well. They're both government entities, and neither served the public. If Sharpe were really sharp, he might have picked-up on that. Now I fear he might really let loose on levers just to save face. Judges are lawyers.
