Drilling Moratorium Hearing Today

ADDED: Now that the hearing is over, Feldman's desire to resolve the matter swiftly...even before his own deadline...would seem to indicate a slight lean toward striking down the moratorium.  But with a mere rational basis standard of review in play, that speculation may be off base.

UPDATE: The Times-Pic provides a surprisingly helpful recap of the proceeding - and gets quotes from such luminaries as former TLS Dean Ed Sherman.
