How Appealing

Wednesday, June 27, 2012

"In this action seven plaintiff States sought to recover proceeds of matured but unredeemed United States savings bonds from the United States Treasury." So begins a lengthy ruling that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit issued today considering whether U.S. savings bonds are subject to escheat under state law. Attorney Carter G. Phillips argued the appeal on behalf of the states.

"[T]he llama incident returned with a vengeance." If only he had DIRECTV instead of cable!

Today, a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit issued a ruling that begins, "One December day, defendant Mark Burge's llama escaped from its pen and wandered off." Unlike in DIRECTV commercials, however, today's ruling seems to have a satisfactory ending for the defendant, as the appellate court holds that "[t]he district court plainly erred in failing to exclude Burge's llama abandonment conviction" in calculating a sentence under the federal Sentencing Guidelines for a later offense.
