The big story as one local television station would say is that Judge Idee C. Fox today ordered that library branches slated for closure could not be shut down without City Council approval, leaving Mayor Nutter and his administration contemplating their next move. From Philly Clout:
The dispute over principle is not whether libraries should or should not be closed but whether an ordinance passed in the 1980s, on which the Judge based her ruling, is in fact valid.
