The oldest two requests have been pending for over six months. The most recent eight were submitted in August. By comparison, the Governor’s first 13 requests — all of which were granted — were on the court’s docket for a median time of just five weeks before rulings, and all but two were acted on within seven weeks. The two outliers took 15 and 20 weeks.
