Ryan to Prison - No Supreme Court Relief For Now

Former Governor of Illinois, George Ryan, who had been ordered to report to prison (see here), will not be receiving bail relief from the Supreme Court. The Chicago Tribune reports here that the Supreme Court denied his request to remain free.  Despite this denial for bail, the case presents some interesting issues that may interest the Supreme Court.  This is especially true with a strong three-person dissent to the en banc decision that affirmed the conviction. (the dissent includes Judge Posner).
