Scruggs to Judge Davidson: Decide my petition, because I could be getting out soon.

Writing with uncharacteristic brevity, his lawyers note that his release date on the five year sentence in Scruggs I would be in November of this year and that he’d be eligible for half-way house or home detention under the Bureau of Prisons regulations on May 23rd. They also note that briefing on the case was completed in April, and ask for a decision so either Scruggs can go ahead and get out or appeal to the Fifth Circuit.
