The end of Garzon's career

So it's finally over for Garzon... Sure, technically he's only temporarily suspended, but with three cases against him, each of which are probably going to be delayed, each motion appealed into infinity, and then of course his eventual reinstatement will probably drag on for a couple years. He's only 9 years away from retirement, which is a relatively short time at the speed of Spanish justice.

That's the way it goes in Spain. If you were a judge thinking of investigating powerful interests in Spain, perhaps it would be smarter to spend your time sending some more manteros to prison.
