Basically. They said they'd hear Barnett's request for a license, but wouldn't grant him one administratively. So the door was open for a return, but they weren't promising him one. Barnett showed up to the CSAC and thought his presence was just a formality and they'd just give him a license since his suspension was up. But they started asking him questions, so he asked to reschedule and eventually dropped his request for a license.
Chael can request a license from the CSAC anytime he wants, so it is technically possible they could give him one. But the CSAC seemed pretty upset with him at the last hearing. I think at least four commissioners questioned his veracity or even his need for testosterone. The Dr. on the commission even told him to get a second opinion. And if the CSAC declines to give him a license, he can't even request one from them again for a full year. So he may want to wait to ask for one until he's sure they'll give him one.
