Update on Scooter trial

timeline and jury demographics: A reader writes:

Jeff Toobin just said on CNN that due to lawyers needing security clearances, Scooter’s trial may not start until 2007. With pre-trial motions, continuances, and possible appeals, that could stretch easily past Pardon Day 2008 (12/24/08). BTW, are you surprised that he hired a distinguished senior black attorney Ted Wells who had previously represented Clinton Agriculture Secretary Mike Espy? Espy admitted upfront that he had accepted the gifts of Super Bowl tickets and a Jeep from agri-business executives, but was still acquitted of all felony charges by a mostly black DC jury.
