With Tongue Firmly in Cheek (4Cir)

The federal 4th Circuit is discussing how the US Attorney may have given evidence to a defendant without it reaching the attorney who actually tried the case:
We recognize that some information may have failed to reach King's trial counsel, given that King changed attorneys three times and that his escape from custody forced the court to reschedule the trial.
I think this is Judge Motz's polite way of saying, "Screw around with us, you yutz, and we ain't giving you the benefit of any doubt."

U.S. v. King, JAN11, 4Cir No. 07-4855
