5:07 pm
confirm or deny that appointee when election is over the president plans to have a chance to send qualified nominees of their philosophy to the senate will vote for the mets are qualified even though i would not have chose them with scaly a seat open that leaves a sitting supreme court justices meaning of four for ty as possible this could be bad news for former governor bob mcdonnell like gooding is here to explain that lets ride even if in fact there were a tie then the lower court's ruling would withstand which of course was guilty of public corruption with a sense of two years in prison. one local legal scholar told me today that that's still a big enough the death of u s supreme court justice antonin scalia could have an impact on former governor bob mcdonnell's appeal or it might not at all. well i don't think we should pre suppose what justice scalia would die and back eighties field evans is the sandra day o'connor professor of law at

5:09 pm
the region after for the court to stand up is a court of law as opposed to a court of politics and that's a real possibility and it's also a real possibility the corps will provide four to form partisan lines it's really hard to predict what will happen. i had just run in to make da last thursday two days before scaly had died and at that time he mcdonnell was upbeat about his chances before the supreme court. i reached out for comment today from the mcdonnell legal team i was told by their spokesman. i don't envision respond to this time but will let you know if i hear otherwise. reporting live by cutting thirteen is now a virginia beach man charged in an up skirting incident thirteen is now learned this isn't the first time he's been accused of taking inappropriate pictures and very public places. parents trust that the person teaching their child is safe to be in the classroom but
