Lawyers for a rape counselor at odds with the Air Force say they're ready to take her case to the Supreme Court.
The announcement came after the federal appeals court in Denver backed out of the case today and reinstated an arrest warrant for counselor Jennifer Biers of Colorado Springs. The appeals court said the military court overseeing a court-martial of a former Air Force cadet accused of rape should decide her fate.
It's not clear whether authorities planned to arrest Biers immediately but she says she's still willing to go to jail to protect the confidentiality of her client.
A military judge wants to review the records to see if they're relevant to the court-martial, which is set to begin next week.
