High court moves up Amend 5 hearing date

Chalk one up for Mike Haridopolos. The Melbourne state senator sent out a plaintive press release Tuesday urging the Florida Supreme Court to move up the date of the hearing on Amendment 5.

Today, they did. But it's likely they weren't responding Haridopolos but to the pleas from attorneys in the case from both sides, who on Monday filed briefs urging the court to move up the date. The court changed it from Sept. 8 to Sept. 3 -- in time for a quick decision, if they deliver one, to get the ballots approved by the Sept. 5 ballot deadline.

Please....Haridopolos has been the lone wolf on this one. There is no one else who has been a stronger opponent. Maybe the Supremes decided he was right!
