Why is the Appeals Court so slow in ruling on immunity?

There is an older Judge on the panel, appointed by a Republican, and in my opinion, she is hesitant to go along with the other two judges on the panel. They want a unanimous decision, so as they do not look like it is political, since the other two judges were appointed by a Democratic president. They do not want to look partisan in such an important decision.

However, this is the delay that Trump is looking for. It has already pushed the Jury date ahead to April, or probably later.

Any more delay and it will appear that the Justice System has decided to let the voters decide the fate of Donald Trump in the next election. If he loses, then the trials and appeals will continue on course. If he wins....

There is never, so far as I can tell, any sense of urgency to get anything done in court.

Immunity.

That's the only reason I can think of being reasonable.

They know this. So, they want to be careful and ironclad.

It's an important case, almost without precedent. Lots of i's and t's will want attention in whatever they hand down.
