Okay, thanks.<quoted text>
After a Court Decision like this, the various administrative areas get their heads together with Administration Legal Counsel to determine the implications and applications of the Court Decision with respect to their departmental policies. This can take quite a long time; especially when there are additional Cases coming down the turnpike. The phone lines are burning (as is the midnight oil) with calls among the various sub-department supervisors all trying to come to a consensus understanding.
I've been through similar occurrences more than a few times. Nobody is dragging their feet. Consensus takes time. Likely interpretations are going all the way down to frontline staff meetings, and reactions and input are making their way back up the chain.
6 months to a year is pretty much standard for minor changes.
This one isn't a minor change.
So, right now I guess we really don't know some of the answers.
