Repealed isn't the same as dead

The pay-hike, that is. Two bits today keep the corpse twitching:
  1. John Grogan continues to hassle a particular legislator who had claimed inability to refund any of the unvouchered expense money because it was already sunk into a new water heater. Grogan lined up a team when the guy said "the state would have to send somebody to remove it," and continues to ask for a timeline for getting the voters' money back. I have to admit, the latter section kind of made me giggle.

  2. Meanwhile the lawsuit challenging the legality of the unvouchered expenses continues even after the rollback. The plaintiff makes the point that future raises will bring up similar questions, which should thus be settled now. The defendents are seeking to have the case dismissed.
