Lawsuits to be filed when Commonwealth shuts down?

Via this post from Commonwealth Commonsense, this Jeff Shapiro column says if July 1 arrives with no budget, "there may be lawsuits - possibly initiated by the state - to fully determine the governor's authority to spend money in the absence of a General Assembly-passed budget." No kidding.

From the other side, Ben Domenech is concluding that the Taxman Wins, and cites this Washington Post column ("Promise Them Anything, Then Raise Taxes," 3/28/04), which if nothing else makes Governor Warner look foolish or look like someone who is undeterred by foolish consistencies.
