Search of Congressman Jefferson's Office:

The AP reports:

A federal appeals court on Friday barred the Justice Department from reviewing evidence seized from a Louisiana congressman's office during an unprecedented FBI raid on his Capitol Hill office in May.

A three-judge panel ordered a federal trial judge to ensure that Democratic Rep. William Jefferson be given copies of seized evidence ... [so that Jefferson has the chance] to invoke legislative privilege claims in private with the trial judge.

Thanks to Ron Coleman (Dean's World) for the pointer. Unfortunately, I couldn't find the opinion on the D.C. Circuit site, findlaw, WESTLAW, or LEXIS, so don't have anything more to say about it yet.
