Release Hearing OKd for Accused Scientist

September 07, 2000|From Times Wire Reports

A federal appeals court in Denver agreed to set a hearing for Wen Ho Lee's lawyers to argue that the accused nuclear scientist should be released from jail. The U.S. 10th Circuit Court of Appeals, which last week superseded a bail-release order signed by a federal judge in Albuquerque, set the hearing for Monday in Denver. The defense had petitioned the court to release the fired Los Alamos National Laboratory scientist, who has been jailed since Dec. 10 while he awaits trial.
