Folks, here is the latest from Art.

Dear subscriber,

So far so good with the trial. The government's back is against the wall, as it had to admit that there was never any assessment for the three years mentioned in the indictment. When Judge Padova pointed out that the 3rd circuit (here in Penna.) has ruled that you can't have a tax evasion without an assessment, the government realized its case is in jeopardy and filed an appeal of his ruling to the Court of Appeals. Thus, my district court trial is on hold until word comes down Friday from the 3rd circuit. We'll find out then one of three things: the appeal is rejected as frivolous, the appeal is denied, or the appeal is accepted. If the third, we'll be on hold until that court makes a ruling on the issue. If the first or second, we resume in some capacity on Monday, with the government holding a very poor hand of cards.

All press clippings are up on the Web site.

Keep the prayers coming - they're working! If an appellate court session is forthcoming, then this will cost me even more. If you can help financially, I would very much appreciate it. See info on Web site.
