Barry Pollack was quoted regarding former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell's appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court for public corruption convictions following a federal appellate court's rejection of his bid for a rehearing. Pollack said McDonnell's failure to get a single appeals court judge to agree to rehearing will not affect his chances of getting the Supreme Court to take the case. "The Supreme Court's primary consideration is going to be the gravity of the issues and whether they feel there has been enough of these cases that there's confusion among the judicial circuits about what the standard should be," he said.
