Just when you thought they convicted Ken Lay...

he found a way out.

Lay apparently died of a heart attack at his vacation home at the age of 64. Under the 5th Circuit's abatement rule, because Lay's conviction was pending appeal, it will be treated as if it never existed. You can't label a guy guilty when his appeals have not been exhausted, right. And now, since the civil suit can still go on, it will be severely hindered since plaintiffs cannot rely on the criminal conviction as proof. Lay, that slippery bastard.
