Cabranes, the first Puerto Rican jurist appointed to a mainland federal court, is both an intellectual and a pragmatist.

U.S. District Judge Jose A. Cabranes in New Haven, Conn., denied a motion by GAF Corp. to dismiss or transfer a lawsuit filed by Union Carbide seeking to block GAF's proposed $4.3-billion hostile takeover of the giant chemical company. He said GAF had not shown that enough "factual overlap" existed to make the case a counterclaim to GAF's own lawsuit against Carbide being heard in New York.

The Supreme Court today turned its back on a still-brewing tempest over America's multimillion-dollar herbal tea market. The justices, without comment, refused to take up an antitrust controversy stemming from the once-planned acquisition by Thomas J. Lipton Inc. of Kraft's Celestial Seasonings Inc. The case dates back to 1987, when Lipton, a subsidiary of the huge grocery products distributor Unilever, announced that it had agreed to buy Celestial Seasonings from Kraft Inc.

Blackmun "won't be long," President Clinton said Thursday, as aides predicted that the announcement would come early next week. As has usually been the case, Clinton's selection process has taken somewhat longer than his aides had predicted. Shortly after Blackmun announced his resignation last month, White House Counsel Lloyd N. Cutler told reporters that a decision would be made before the end of April.

The decision overturned statutes by Connecticut's Democratic-dominated Legislature prohibiting these voters from participating in Republican primaries.

The Great Mentioner is at it again. This time it's about who shall be nominated by President Clinton to fill the seat of Supreme Court Justice Harry M. Blackmun, who will step down later this year. Already the White House has dribbled out half a dozen plausible names. Whether any particular person on the list is a genuine candidate or merely for show isn't clear.

A federal judge Tuesday reserved decision on a request by GAF Corp. that a lawsuit charging it with violating federal securities and antitrust laws in its attempted takeover of Union Carbide Corp. be dismissed.

Cabranes in New Haven that Carbide's lawsuit, filed Monday, was improper in that it should have been made as a counterclaim to GAF's action against Carbide in a New York federal court.
