In the upcoming trial of client Sen. Ted Stevens, R-Alaska, Williams & Connolly may have to forego a bury-them-in-paper approach. Stevens, indicted in July on seven felony counts for allegedly attempting to hide more than $250,000 in home renovations and gifts, is pushing for a speedy trial before he faces re-election in November. Jury selection is scheduled for Sept. 22. The defense is expected to argue that Stevens did not knowingly and willfully file false financial disclosure statements.
