9th Circuit gives feds time to take Bonds to Supreme Court (Yahoo Sports)

A federal appeals court has granted a motion from prosecutors that gives them until at least July 22 to decide whether to ask the U.S. Supreme Court to reinstate Barry Bonds' obstruction of justice conviction. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which threw out Bonds' conviction in a 10-1 vote last week, issued a one-page order Thursday that stays the issuance of a mandate that would return the case to District Court for final procedures. Bonds did not oppose the motion. Prosecutors said Tuesday they are considering whether to recommend to the Solicitor General in the Justice Department that a petition be filed asking the Supreme Court to review the 9th Circuit's decision.
