Courts - "Close Enough for Government Work: Seventh Affirms George Ryan Conviction"
Robert Loblaw of the blog Decision of the Day has a great entry today that begins:
Remember George Ryan, the disgraced former governor of Illinois? In March 2006, Ryan was convicted of RICO violations and mail fraud for steering contracts and leases to a top “unpaid” advisor, who in turn, steered money into Ryan’s campaign and into his pocket. In a 74-page decision, a divided panel of the Seventh Circuit affirms the convictions of Ryan and his advisor.The decision is US v. Ryan.
