Dans le blog Crime and Consequences notre attention est attirée sur cette introduction à l'arrêt de la Cour d'Appel des Etats-Unis pour le Troisième Circuit, dans l'affaire United States vs. Bansal 06-1370 :

Akhil Bansal and Frederick Mullinix appeal from their jury convictions in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania on a 42-count indictment alleging crimes arising from their multi-national, internet based, controlled-substance-distribution scheme. They have, in our estimation, challenged every decision of the District Court, at almost every moment of the litigation before, during, and after their convictions. Yet in the more than 1,100 pages of briefing submitted to us by both defendants and the government, we have identified not a single instance of reversible error. That the prior rulings and findings in this case have emerged from such an onslaught wholly intact represents no small achievement by the District Court, whose decisions we will affirm in all respects.

Au moins les avocats des inculpés ne pourront pas être accusé d'avoir négligé leur travail !
