Today the court is closed because of the Cesar Chavez holiday.
I sent another check to the Appeals Clerk, but I got this envelope returned to me. Isn't 41 cents the correct first class postage? I don't get it. Maybe someday the courts will not be so dependent on the postal system. The courts take deadlines very seriously, so postal mistakes can cause a lot of trouble.
A reader sends this AP story:
Former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman was released on bond from a federal prison Friday, saying he remains upbeat despite serving nine months for corruption. ...I hope none of the court reporters die!
A federal appeals court ruled Thursday that Siegelman should be released while he appeals his conviction. ...
The appeals process had been delayed for months after the court reporter during the trial died and the transcript was not completed as it normally would have.
