Howie Carr ping. Today may well be Howie’s last show on
WRKO and his “network” but the question is, will tomorrow be his first day on WTKK...or not? Down to the wire it goes.

Judge Allan van Gestel, who presides over the court’s Business Litigation Session

VanGestel was with Goodwin, Procter in Boston before he became a state judge about 10 years ago. I think his preferred specialization was anti-trust, but I don't know where he stood. He is definitely anti-death penalty and was writing a book putting forth his views (but I don't know if he finished or got it published).

He was also the judge who issued that gag order in the sex education case a few years back. I don't recall the details, but a guy who is active against the rabid sex education current in the schools attended a parents' meeting and taped it. VanGestel put a gag order on him not to disseminate the tape. Maybe someone remembers more.

I don't recall if Howie wrote a column on this, but if he did, he probably skewered the judge but good. Not that that would influence the judge in any way, of course! ;-)
