Coleman seeks longer appeal schedule
ST. PAUL - Norm Coleman proposes that his and Al Franken's campaigns have until mid-May to file written arguments in the U.S. Senate election case headed for a Minnesota Supreme Court appeal.
Attorneys for Coleman wrote to the high court Wednesday that "the parties, and the court, must be given enough time to fully develop and consider the issues on appeal." Coleman's team proposes a May 15 deadline for written briefs. The court then would set a date for oral arguments.
