Feds Ask for More Time in Ex-Virginia Gov. McDonnell's Case

RICHMOND, Va. (AP)- Prosecutors and former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell's attorneys want more time to figure out the next steps after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned his corruption conviction.
    
The high court ruled in June that McDonnell's actions were distasteful but didn't necessarily violate federal bribery laws. The case was returned to an appeals court to decide whether there's enough evidence for another trial.
    
The appeals court put McDonnell's case on hold in July after both sides said they need more time to analyze the Supreme Court ruling. They were supposed to update the court by Monday.
    
But prosecutors said in a court documents Friday that they need more time. Both sides want the case to remain on hold for another three weeks.
    
McDonnell was convicted in 2014 of violating federal bribery law.
