05/20/09 - Today a website posted an item that quoted a false allegation from an unnamed source: "Mayor [Gavin] Newsom reached out to the Supreme Court and asked them to hold off releasing their decision so it did not coincide with the White Night riots."And the craziness continues. All I know, and all I need to know, is that that ruling is not coming tomorrow. Now we wait until Friday to hear if the ruling will come down on Tuesday.
This allegation is not true. We have asked the website to correct the item immediately.
