GRB 070714B: Swift-BAT spectral lag for the SHB

on behalf of the Swift-BAT team:
Using the event-by-event data from Swift-BAT, the spectral lag
for GRB 070714B (Racusin, et al., 6620; Barbier, et al., 6623) is:
     9 ms +- 4 ms   (100-350 to 25-50 keV)
    14 ms +- 7 ms   ( 50-100 to 15-25 KeV)
using 4-msec binning (for the 2.9-sec interval covering the initial spike).
This is consistent with "zero lag" for short hard bursts.
