People/U.S. v. Estrada (9th Cir. & Cal. Ct. App. - July 14, 1006)

Here's something I haven't seen before. Both the Ninth Circuit and the California Court of appeal only issue one substantive published opinion today. They're both criminal cases. And they're both called "People/U.S. v. Estrada".

The Ninth Circuit case involves a conviction for possession of methamphetamine. The California case involves a conviction for petty theft. Estrada's first name is Mateo in the former and Frank in the latter.

They're both convicted. The convictions of both are affirmed on appeal.

Not a good day to be named Estrada.
