Judge Orders Hearing On CIA Interrogation
Tapes
Washington CBS

A federal judge has ordered a hearing on whether the Bush
administration violated a court order by destroying CIA interrogation
videos of two Al Qaeda suspects.

U.S. District Judge Henry H. Kennedy rejected calls from the Justice
Department to stay out of the matter. He ordered lawyers to appear
before him Friday morning.

Key witness against Siegelman released
from federal prison
Bob Johnson of AP

A key witness at the trial of former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman and
former HealthSouth CEO Richard Scrushy has been released from
federal prison.

Former lobbyist and landfill developer Lanny Young was released on
Dec. 11 after U.S. District Judge Mark Fuller held a hearing in
Montgomery and ordered Young's two-year prison sentence
reduced, according to court records. Young had served more than
11 months for bribery and other charges.

.....Franklin said he feels fine about Young's early release.

Looks like panic in Alabama...
by Larisa Alexandrovna of At-Largely

....Obviously, someone is worried about what 60 Minutes has
uncovered, um, possibly Judge Mark Fuller, who was the one to
order the release on 12/11/2007 (yes, the same judge who did such
a fine job on the case) or possibly US Assistant Attorney Steve
Feaga (who is the most visible prison candidate once this whole
mess fully goes forward and who the Canary's will likely throw under
the bus first) and of course there are also the now infamous Canary
"girls," Leura Canary and Alice Martin, the two US Attorneys in
Alabama.
