NPR's Wade Goodwyn reports that the on-again, off-again trial of Enron scandal figure Lea Fastow is now on again. Lea Fastow, the wife of Enron's former finance chief Andrew Fastow, is charged with filing false tax returns. The judge handing the case said it would go to trial as planned after a noon deadline for her to accept a plea deal passed with no word from her attorneys.
