1.  Appeals Court Grants Siegelman’s Motion
for Delay
by Glynn Wilson for the Locust Fork Journal

The Eleventh U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta has granted
former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman’s motion to delay a new
sentencing hearing in Montgomery until the U.S. Supreme Court
decides whether it will hear the appeal.

The order indicates Siegelman’s re-sentencing hearing will not be
held until at least August 12, according to what one of Siegelman’s
attorneys apparently told the Associated Press.

2. Retired Federal Judge Urges Investigation
of Siegelman Case
by Roger Shuler of Legal Schnauzer

....Clemon presided over a federal case against Siegelman in Birmingham,
which involved charges of Medicaid fraud. It ended with the judge throwing out a
conspiracy charge due to lack of evidence, leading prosecutors to drop the
charges.

But the Bush Justice Department was not finished with Siegelman. Prosecutors
then brought bribery and honest-services fraud charges in Montgomery. With
Bush-appointed judge Mark Fuller at the controls, that case resulted in a
conviction.

In his letter, Clemon calls the Birmingham case against Siegelman "the most
unfounded criminal case" he ever presided over.
