GOVERNMENT APPEALS GRANTING OF HABEUS BOND




The Government's appeal of the order granting bond to fugitive Panamanian president Ricardo Martinelli was followed by its motion to stay bond , pending the resolution of that appeal, and the Eleventh Circuit agreed.

Martinelli's counsels' efforts to obtain bond from the Eleventh Circuit were denied as moot, given that the District Court had stayed enforcement of its order granting bond. The appellate court did call for an expedited briefing schedule for the appeal, which will accelerate the progress of the case on appeal.
