On the eve of today's closing arguments, defense attorneys filed a motion to acquit Sami Al-Hussayen on all the charges. The motion states that based on the testimony of the sole defense witness, even if all the government's evidence is viewed in the most favorable light, "no reasonable jury could find guilt beyond a reasonable doubt."

However, there's been no action on that motion. Jury instructions and closing arguments begin in half an hour; then, the case is scheduled to be turned over to the jury for deliberations.
