We have a date. Judge Michael W. Fitzgerald has set Wednesday, August 21, 2013 to announce his verdict in the case of Champommier v. United States of America. Here is the statement from Zac's mother, Carol:
The VERDICT is close at hand. The judge has ordered a hearing to give his verdict instead of simply issuing a written ruling in Champommier v. United States of America.
