$AMRN I don't see a delay in the Court decision because most federal courts have continued hearings and trials into mid-April. So not much else for the Judge to work on other than opinions like in the AMRN case. The Judge has two or three law clerks, one or more of which is certainly drafting an initial draft of the opinion. Also Judges often request a copy of the briefs in MS-WORD format so that they can cut and paste portions to reduce time drafting the written opinion. The Judge set an end of March deadline expecting a full docket. Without a full docket, the decision should be ready on time, if not earlier.
