Court Sides With Franken, Forbids Coleman From Sneaking New Evidence In

The key quote:

The information Contestants seek to obtain through these certifications are in dispute. This election contest is nearing the end of its fifth week of trial. The Court has heard a tremendous amount of evidence. The testimony from the witnesses has been vital to this Court's function as fact-finder. A proffer of evidence made through email requests from county officials who may or may not have personal knowledge of the information Contestants seek would deprive the Court of the opportunity to evaluate the county officials' testimony in the same manner it has evaluated the testimony of the witnesses already called.

Bottom line: Coleman was asking to build part of his case on manifestly inferior evidence. The court isn't buying it.

The court also noted in their opinion that Coleman's lawyers have said they plan to rest their case this week, and you see can above they mentioned how long this has already gone on. So it would appear that the judges intend to hold Coleman to that promise, and to block efforts to weasel out of it.
