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.

    Information society. Last week I did a post about Aaron Judge and the lack of hard data in the field of criminal law. We have mainly anecdotal information on what kinds of sentences judges hand down, we have no idea...
