Who Didn't see This Coming?

United States Court of Appeals
For the Seventh Circuit
Chicago, Illinois 60604
Argued April 5, 2007
Decided April 5, 2007
Before
Hon. FRANK H. EASTERBROOK, Chief Judge
Hon. WILLIAM J. BAUER, Circuit Judge
Hon. DIANE P. WOOD, Circuit Judge
No. 06-3676


UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
Plaintiff-Appellee,
v.
GEORGIA L. THOMPSON,
Defendant-Appellant.


Appeal from the United States District Court
for the Eastern District of Wisconsin.
No. 06 CR 20
Rudolph T. Randa, Chief Judge.


Order
The judgment of conviction is reversed, and the case will
be remanded with instructions to enter a judgment of acquittal.

An opinion will be issued in due course. The time to file a
petition for rehearing is extended until 14 days after the court
issues its opinion.

This extension of time also means that the mandate will be
deferred. But Thompson is entitled to immediate release from
prison, on her own recognizance. The United States must make
No. 06-3676 Page 2 arrangements so that she may be released before the close of
business today.

You think it was all just a coincidence?

The $20,000.00 to Doyles campaign.

A $750,000.00 contract follows.

Come on.
