Wecht decision online

The 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals has handed down its opinion in the Wecht case. The Court removed U.S. District Judge Arthur J. Schwab from the case and ordered that a different judge be assigned to hear any potential retrial. Wecht's lawyers had accused Judge Schwab of being biased in favor of the prosecution. However, the court refused Wecht's request to dismiss the charges.
