JUSTICE John A. Manglona issued the ruling at around 12 noon Wednesday. He said the governor failed to show the "possibility of irreparable injury...if we do not take the extraordinary action of intervening into an ongoing Superior Court case."
The governor's lawyer must now explain to Superior Court Judge David A. Wiseman why the governor should not be held in contempt for violating the standing preliminary injunction orders against the $190 million power purchase agreement the governor signed with Saipan Development LLC.
That hearing will start at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday. More details to follow.
