Update: 5/6/2014 10:45AM EST
The court did not rule immediately on the motion for bail (this is not typical, usually the court will immediately rule). The ruling should come quickly, as early as this afternoon but possibly in a few days. A notice will be posted as soon as news arrives.

Our bail motion will be heard in the 2nd circuit court of appeals on Tuesday, May 6th at 10am.
