stevie Can't Be Bothered . . . .

Apparently, King stevie is just too busy pursuing his majority government (Horrors!) to take care of small items like legal proceedings he initiated.

From the Globe and Mail this evening:

Harper seeks delay in hearing over Cadman libel suit

OTTAWA — Conservative Leader Stephen Harper wants a judge to put off a hearing in his $3.5-million defamation suit against the Liberal party that is scheduled to be held during the federal election campaign.

Mr. Harper's lawyers filed an “emergency” motion for an adjournment with Superior Court Justice Charles Hackland, court officials said Friday.

It is expected that Richard Dearden, Mr. Harper's lawyer, will argue Mr. Harper's campaign schedule prevents him from paying close attention to the legal details of the lawsuit he filed over an allegation that Conservatives attempted to bribe a terminally ill MP in 2005.

The move came at the same time lawyers for the Liberal party filed their own motion with Judge Hackland asking him to order Mr. Harper to produce documents which Mr. Dearden has failed to provide, despite promises to do so.

Come on, stevie.

You started the petty proceedings.

The least you can do is fulfil what's expected of you.
