Some stuff came up, so I'll be doing my post about the 8th District's en banc decision on pre-indictment delay tomorrow.  I handled the case, and I need little prompting to blog about a case I win.  (Normally I need some time to recover from the shock of that happening, but that's another story.)

I was interviewed by one of the local news channels about the case, but they didn't run the story; as you might guess, the visuals weren't that good.  I told the cameraman to make sure he got my good side, but he told me that would be tough since I was sitting on it.

Ba-da-boom.

Catch you tomorrow.
