Case Conclusion Date:March 8, 2012
Practice Area:Criminal Defense
Outcome:Rule 29 Motion to Dismiss Granted
Description:Judge Pisano (D.N.J.) today granted the defendants' Rule 29 motion to dismiss in U.S. v. Muhlstock, agreeing that the proof prejudicially varied from the indictment and that the government failed to prove that the charged wires were connected to the indicted scheme. We were pleased to have assisted Ed Sapone in the preparation of the Rule 29 papers. Ed brilliantly tried the case to a hung jury prior to the court's decision dismissing the indictment.
