No Delay

An attorney for Delay has stated that they will request an early December trial date for the former House majority leader, if the case gets that far.

Attorney Dick DeGuerin said in a letter that "time is of the essence" in the case that has temporarily forced DeLay to step down from his top House post.

Third times the charm, Judge Pat Priest has set a Nov. 22 hearing to consider requests to drop the charges against DeLay and his co-defendants.

"Should the indictments survive the hearings of November 22, we will request a trial date in early December," DeGuerin wrote in his letter to Priest.

You have to applaud DeGuerin for trying to have the trial when nobody will be paying attention to it. Maybe it will be a bright orange Christmas?
