U.S. v. Meredith (9th Cir. - June 26, 2012)

This makes it official.  I'm calling it "Jean-Claude Andre" month in the Ninth Circuit.

Jean-Claude's an AUSA, and he argued the appeal that gave rise to today's published opinion from the Ninth Circuit.  An appeal from consolidated tax evasion cases that (for some reason I can't figure out) was filed in 2005 and yet not resolved until 2012.

Jean-Claude also argued the appeal in this published opinion from Friday.  Child pornography, that time.  Two published opinions in less than a week.

Another case from Mr. Andre in June was this one, though it's unpublished (illegal reentry after deportation).  And four weeks ago there's this published opinion from the Ninth Circuit, which Mr. Andre argued.

Four Ninth Circuit opinions in four weeks.  And you thought being a government employee was just a nine to five job, eh?

Good job, Jean-Claude.
