Tom DeLay wants the appeals court deciding whether to reinstate conspiracy charges against him to decide the matter quickly, and no wonder—every day the case drags on means potential damage for him come the November election. That’s what his lawyer requested at a hearing on the matter yesterday—DeLay didn’t come near the court room.

 

But USA Today reports that a ruling isn’t likely before next month, and at that point, prosectuors still have the option to appeal to the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals. See also stories on the matter by the Washington Post and AP.
