The Government responds to Zach Scruggs’s motion to continue: Let’s get this done

I had the sense the Government probably would prefer to get the Scruggs’s effort to set aside his plea done rather than continue it. Here’s the Government response to the motion to continue:

The petitioner’s 28 U.S.C. § 2255 hearing has been set for April 25, 2011, since February8, 2011. Much has been said about Zach Scruggs’ allegations and the government is desirous ofgetting this matter to court as soon as possible. In fact, government counsel would not object tohearing the matter prior to the week of April 25, 2011, if there is any time available on theCourt’s calendar. Respectfully submitted.
