Federal prosecutors asked an appeals court Friday to deny former
Qwest chief executive Joe Nacchio's latest bid to delay when he
must report to prison.
A judge has already denied Nacchio's request to stay free on
bail while he asks the U.S. Supreme Court to review his
insider-trading conviction. Nacchio appealed that decision
to the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals this week.
On Friday, prosecutors filed documents opposing the request.
