OK - now at bail fight in US v Rumph for armed robbery of a Bronx smoke shop. Federal Defender wants him released.

AUSA: The acquaintance had on a ski maskAUSA shows surveillance video of Rumpf's car speeding off before "Robber-1" even closed door behind him.

Judge took a long break to deliberate in robing room with others. Rumpf said, Take all the time you need, your Honor. Judge is back - all rise!
