Court Considers Oct. 7 California Recall Date
From the Reuters story:

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Federal judges sharply and critically questioned lawyers defending a delay in California's Oct. 7 gubernatorial recall election on Monday as an 11-member appeals court panel tried to decide whether to rescind an earlier ruling postponing the vote.

The court's three Republican appointees led the questioning of American Civil Liberties Union attorneys Mark Rosenbaum and Lawrence Tribe in San Francisco. The ACLU attorneys said the election should be held in March 2004, when allegedly error-prone punch card voting machines would be replaced in six counties that account for 44 percent of the state's electorate.


Here's another link; this one is for the AP version of the same story.

I listened to the CSPAN audio stream, and my gut feeling is that they'll overturn the previous ruling from the three-judge panel.
