3090995988_c02cc801eeWhile the rest of you were sleeping for 11 hours a day with visions of sugarplums dancing or something, and gaining the “Holiday 15″ with all that filler gift candy and food you just kept stuffing into your mouth to avoid talking to your relatives, the ASUC Judicial Council was busy deciding on recall procedures and the Daily Cal was busy reporting on it … and we were busy plotting our witty quips to use in writing about it. Bah humbug.

Although ASUC was toying with the idea of online voting to reduce the costs of its January recall election of John Moghtader, the Judicial Council decided to deliver a little lump of coal, issuing a ruling on Christmas Eve mandating that the election must follow the same procedures as regular elections. Looks like the ASUC’s gonna have to shell out the usual $48,000 for this election. Economic crisis anyone?

But alas, there might be a little gift from Santa after all. The Alameda County District Attorney announced that there will be no charges filed against those involved in the infamous Nov. 13 Eshleman Hall scuffle. We’d say that’s a better gift than that scented candle you probably got from your mom.
