Blogger and failed politician Brad Cabana is in court again this morning, where he'll learn if judge Gillian Butler will recuse herself from the case.
On Friday, Cabana blindsided the court by accusing Butler of bias, and being in a conflict of interest. The decision on whether he'll get his way will likely come sometime today.
Cabana is challenging the Muskrat Falls mega project, saying that certain aspects of it are unconstitutional. The current hearing was meant to be about whether the judge will issue a declaratory order to stop all future expenditures on the Muskrat Falls development until all the legal uncertainty is sorted out.
But if Cabana is successful in getting Butler to withdraw herself from the case, the whole thing could be sent back to square one, and the whole process would have to start over again with a new judge.
The Telegram will be providing continuing coverage from the courtroom throughout the day.
