Sliding Into Saturday: No Agreement, No Court Order

ALBANY—The mood here among lawmakers tonight reminds me of what architect Henry Hobson Richardson once famousy wrote about Albany: “Misery, wretchedness, ennui and the devil. I’ve got to spend another night in Albany.”
After meeting behind closed doors for an hour, Supreme Court Justice Joseph Teresi said he will hear David Paterson out on why he wants a legally enforceable order for senators come to the chamber for extraordinary sessions this weekend.
On Monday afternoon.
So there will be no State Troopers dragging the lawmakers into the chamber this weekend. Instead, Paterson issued a proclamation calling on the Senate to confirm seven appointees to various state boards.
