Texas: DeLay files motion in Texas Court of Criminal Appeals

AP reports: In a last-ditch effort to secure a speedy trial, Rep. Tom DeLay's attorneys on Friday asked the state's highest criminal court to dismiss the charges against him or order a lower court to try him immediately.

DeLay attorney Dick DeGuerin took the case to the all-Republican Texas Court of Criminal Appeals a day after a lower appeals court denied his request that the case be sent back to the trial court or expedited through the appeals process. -- AP Wire | 12/23/2005 | DeLay's lawyers take case to state's highest criminal court
