Update II: Jimmy Dimora's trial will not begin until January 4, 2012, U.S. District Judge Sara Lioi has ruled. Now Jimmy's totally going to use the "too much holiday food" excuse to explain why he looks so fat on the witness stand, but no one's going to buy it. (WOIO)

Update: The wait continues. Via WKYC: "Just after 3 p.m. Thursday, U.S. District Judge Sara Lioi said she will issue a written ruling "at a later date" regarding former Cuyahoga County Commissioner Jimmy Dimora's request for a three-month continuance for his Sept. 12 corruption trial." Dimora handed over the direct line to the fax machine in his tiki hut so he can be the first to know.
