Norm Coleman’s lawyers just held a conference call and said what’s probably obvious — that they’ll appeal this ruling. More interesting, Coleman legal spokesmen Ben Ginsberg hinted that the final say from the Minnesota Supreme Court won’t be the final word for them — i.e., that they’ll try to get the federal courts to step in and prevent the state of Minnesota from issuing Franken that certificate of election.
