    There's a smell

    Correct, apparently she tried to pay so much attention that she became bewildered by the case's complexities, by her own admission in court. By the way, I'm neither long nor short in this stock, just an interested observer of the Puerto Rico banking scene.

    The judge humbly admitted in court that she was bewildered by the complexity of the case and even prayed for enlightenment. Yet after receiving the final briefs from the parties (over 100 pages combined) and analyze and ponder over them deeply and thoroughly to clear up her admitted confusion, she was able to produce a complex 48-page opinion in less than two days. Unless you're very naive, you can't help but think that Doral's lawyer wrote and gave her an opinion draft. Which would be par for the course for Doral, analogous to the 2012 Secretary of the Treasury (Mendez, under whose auspices the 2012 "agreement" was produced), becoming a high-ranking, highly-paid executive of Doral a short time later. Not saying the judge will leave the court system to join the legal dept. of Doral, but geez, something just doesn't smell right about the extreme rapidity of her opinion after she openly confessed her bewilderment about the complexity of the case in open court.
