9th Circuit: Error In Admitting Testimony Does Not Warrant New Trial
Mealey's (September 19, 2016, 11:32 AM EDT) -- PASADENA, Calif. — A Ninth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals panel on Sept. 14 affirmed the denial of a woman’s motion for a new trial, holding that even though a judge erred in allowing testimony that inculpated the defendant, there was sufficient evidence to support her conviction of mail fraud in connection with a scheme to submit fraudulent insurance bills (United States of America v. Theresa Fisher, No. 15-50306, 9th Cir.; 2016 U.S. App. LEXIS 16830).
