Uh Oh

I mentioned earlier that the feds case against alleged ricin-letter-sender Kevin Curtis may be hitting a few bumps in the road with a disconcerting lack of evidence. We’ve just gotten word that this morning’s hearing has been abruptly canceled and authorities have scheduled a press conference to discuss the status of the case at 5 PM local time this afternoon.

What’s notable is that AP reports that this is supposed to be a joint press conference with federal prosecutors and defense attorneys for Curtis. Given what’s come out over the last 24 hours, it’s hard for me to imagine they’d do that if they remained in an adversary context.
