February 19, 2009: Appellant's Informal Opening Brief
 (Corrected copy filed by Defense)
 

Well, folks, just goes to show you, miracles happen. The defense has filed a corrected version of their original motion dated February 19, 2009 for an appeal.

My Question - Why would a seasoned attorney need to request in the first place to be allowed to filed a corrected copy of a brief?

Any intelligent person knows you cannot expect to be granted an appeal when the information you file is incorrect. After all, it is not the government's job to correct the defense's errors.
