RICHMOND, Va. (AP)- A federal appeals court has granted a request to put former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell's case on hold for another three weeks.
    
Federal prosecutors asked the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday for more time to figure out the next steps in the Republican's case after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned his corruption conviction in June.
    
The court approved that request Monday, putting the case on hold until Sept. 19.
    
McDonnell was convicted in 2014 of violating federal bribery law.
    
The Supreme Court overturned his conviction, saying his 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.
