This is about the case of David Coppedge, the creationist who claims he was wrongfully demoted (and later fired) by his employer because he was promoting Intelligent Design (ID) on the job. He used to work as a computer technician for Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). He also maintains a creationist website: Creation-Evolution Headlines [which was recently moved here].
If you haven’t been following the case, you can find some background information in this earlier post.
The trial had been scheduled to start on 14 December, only 9 days from now. However, upon checking the court docket, we noticed the following entries:
12/02/2011 at 09:00 am in Department 54, Ernest Hiroshige, Presiding. Final Status Conference – Matter continued
There’s no indication as to who requested the continuance, or if it was something the judge did on his own.
In the section on future hearings we see this:
02/24/2012 at 09:00 am … Final Status Conference
03/07/2012 at 09:30 am … Jury Trial
That’s all we know — the trial’s been reset for 07 March. We’d like to think that Coppedge and his lawyer begged the court for more time, wet their pants, and sobbed hysterically praying for mercy, but that probably didn’t happen. When we learn more you’ll read about it here.
