News Flash: Stevens indictment dismissed -- but Govt can refile

Bad news for the Government.  The indictment against Lauren Stevens, former General Counsel at GSK, was just dismissed.

Good news for the Government:  It was dismissed without prejudice to re-file.  

Interesting news:  The court is asking the parties if they want to keep their April 2011 trial date, which seems to suggest that the  Government might re-indict Stevens in just a few days.

Here is the court's decision (I have yet to digest it all):
 2011.03.23 Memorandum Opinion

Here is the court's scheduling order:
2011.03.23 Scheduling Memorandum
