Court of Appeals asked to defend
Siegelman’s status while appealing
by Bob Martin, The Alabama Scene

....In an apparent rush to throw Siegelman in shackles and denying
the former governor to even say goodbye to his family following his
sentencing, the judge, Mark E. Fuller, a district judge in the Middle
District of Alabama, failed to rule on the motion for release, gaveling
down Siegelman’s lawyer when she pressed him for a ruling.

Siegelman then applied to the appeals court for his release pending
appeal, and the appellate judges in reviewing the record, found that
Fuller had never even made a ruling on the motion.
