Rubashkin Lawyers Formally Ask Supreme Court To Take On Case


rubashkinIowa – Lawyers for Reb Sholom Mordechai ben Rivkah Rubashkin today formally asked the U.S. Supreme Court to shorten his sentence or order a new trial.

The attorneys, Paul Clement and Nathan Lewin, said that the prison term is exceedingly long for a first-time, nonviolent offender.

Justices can either take the case or let stand an appeals court ruling from September that upheld the conviction and absurd 27-year prison term.

The lawyers argued that U.S. District Judge Linda Reade, who presided over the trial, could not be impartial because they uncovered evidence showing she met repeatedly with investigators planning the raid.

The Supreme Court receives approximately 9,000 such requests each year, They grant about  just seventy of them.

Are are asked to daven for Sholom Mordechai ben Rivka.
