RE: [dvd-discuss] Sklyarov denied Visa to return to US for trial.

OTOH if Skylarov never wants to set foot in the USofA again, they can go 
pound salt...unless the CIA wants to mount a covert operation to abduct 
him and ship him to the USA.  What's more important? Terrorism or 
Intellectual Property?  ;-)

Presumably Counsel could get the Court to issue a bench
order directing the INS to grant the visa.  The lawyers
can comment but AFAIK courts are pretty straightforward
about motions for orders to enforce the Court's other
orders (e.g. subpoena.)
