I am very happy for my client who received good news today: we won his appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit. At trial this summer, I was able to convince the judge to dismiss the more serious count of the indictment, but I was not able to persuade her to dismiss the marriage fraud count. Now that the appeals court reversed the only remaining conviction, my client can put this chapter behind him and move on with his life. You can read the opinion here.
