SAG president Alan Rosenberg's final opportunity to preserve his strike-hungry executive director and negotiating committee fizzled this morning in Superior Court.

Judge James Chalfant needed one hour to rebuff Rosenberg and his curious counselor Eric George, whose original petition for a temporary restraining order halting renewed contract talks was rejected Tuesday on account of "errors" in the documentation. The only errors today were apparently legal ones the judge blew off before adjourning; George is expected to make an unprecedented, last-ditch, "But my client's life sucks" appeal in the weeks ahead.
