The following is a statement in reaction to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals denial of the petition for rehearing by the full Court:
FROM PATTI BLAGOJEVICH
“While I am disappointed that the petition for rehearing was denied, I am thankful that the decision came quickly because the waiting is awful. What’s clear is that in order for us to see justice, the appeal needs to be taken out of Illinois and be in the hands of the U.S. Supreme Court where we can find fairness and impartial justices.”
FROM LEONARD GOODMAN, APPELLATE ATTORNEY
“We are disappointed that this decision by the three-judge panel of the 7th Circuit will not get a hearing by the full Court of Appeals. We believe the decision is flawed and puts every public official, who must raise campaign funds to stay in office and to be effective, at the mercy of an ambitious or politically-motivated federal prosecutor. But we remain hopeful that we will prevail in the end because the decision is in conflict with established legal precedent which has existed for more than 20 years. Now we will appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.”
PLEASE NOTE: Patti Blagojevich will NOT be doing any on camera interviews and we ask that you respect her privacy.
MEDIA NOTE: Attorney Leonard Goodman will do interviews at this office, 53 W Jackson Blvd, Suite 1650, Chicago, IL beginning at 3pm CT. Not a news conference.
