Big victory in the U.S. Court of Appeals:
On April 25, 2014, in United States v. Thum, --- F.3d ---, Case No. 13-50176, the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit issued a published opinion ruling in favor of our client. The Court found that the prosecution’s evidence was insufficient to prove our client committed the crime with which he was charged. This case is one of the few dealing with the subsection of the alien-smuggling statute prohibiting encouraging or inducing an undocumented person to reside in the United States.
Mr. Burstein briefed and argued the case.
