[free-sklyarov] Dima's bail hearing

The judge was confused about the sealed complaint, and was corrected - I 
can't remember if he corrected himself or the prosecutor did. The complaint 
was originally sealed so that Dmitri wouldn't learn that he was about to be 
arrested - the complaint was unsealed at his initial appearance in Las Vegas.

There isn't a new complaint, although it wouldn't be unusual for him to be 
indicted by a federal grand jury prior to his next appearance, which will 
result in an indictment replacing the complaint as the charging document; 
that would also make his next appearance a little bit more like a formality 
and a little bit less like a contested hearing, because it will mean that a 
grand jury has already found that there's probable cause to hold him for trial.

(but, if you're not interested in the guts of criminal procedure, that's a 
detail that you don't need to get especially worked up about - it's neither 
especially good nor especially bad.)
