Lowell Bernhardt and Nathaniel Agnew Boyd, Appellants, v. United States of America, Appellee, 230 F.2d 949 (6th Cir. 1956)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit - 230 F.2d 949 (6th Cir. 1956) February 18, 1956

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan, Detroit; Arthur A. Koscinski, Judge.

Stanley Gelfund, Detroit, Mich., for appellants.

Fred W. Kaess, Willis F. Ward, U. S. Attys., Detroit, Mich., for appellee.

Before SIMONS, Chief Judge, and MARTIN and STEWART, Circuit Judges.


This appeal having been heard and considered on the oral arguments and briefs of both the appellants and the appellee and on the record in the case, and it appearing that the points made by the appellants are both hypertechnical and unsound and even if conceded would fail to disclose that prejudicial error inheres in any ruling of the district court, its judgment in favor of the United States against appellants jointly for $11,514.00 and for an additional $2,000.00 against each of them pursuant to the pertinent statute is affirmed.
