Abstract: 3P2 vortices in neutron-star matter are structurally different from vortices in a 1S0 superfluid. The most important difference is that 3P2 vortices have a spontaneous magnetization in the core region directed along the vortex line. We estimate the velocity relaxation time for electron scattering from these vortices and compare our results with those of Feibelman and the observed relaxation times for the Crab and Vela pulsars.
