Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit - 899 F.2d 1222 (6th Cir. 1990) April 12, 1990

Before NATHANIEL R. JONES and MILBURN, Circuit Judges, and BAILEY BROWN, Senior Circuit Judge.


The United States appeals the sentence imposed upon the defendant pursuant to his guilty plea to unauthorized release of hazardous waste into the environment and false statement to a government agency. The government requests an "Emergency Motion for Stay of Execution of Sentence". The defendant responds in opposition and further moves for dismissal of the appeal. The government responds in opposition to the motion to dismiss.

This Court is without jurisdiction to hear the government's appeal under 18 U.S.C. § 3742(b) without a written authorization of the Solicitor General or Attorney General. See United States v. Hays, --- F.2d ---- Slip Op. 89-5029/5157, (6th Cir. Mar. 29, 1990). No such authorization has been filed.

It is therefore ORDERED that the motion to dismiss is granted. The motion to stay execution of sentence is moot.
