United States of America, Plaintiff-appellee, v. Masao Hayashi, Defendant-appellant, 990 F.2d 1262 (9th Cir. 1993)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit - 990 F.2d 1262 (9th Cir. 1993)

Submitted Jan. 11, 1993. *Decided March 22, 1993

Before GOODWIN and FLETCHER, Circuit Judges, and HUFF,**  District Judge.


Masao Hayashi appeals the district court's denial of Aloha 7 Travel's (a non-party) application for refund of monies paid to the United States on behalf of Hayashi to satisfy a criminal fine and cost of incarceration assessed against Hayashi. We dismiss the appeal for lack of jurisdiction. Hayashi is the only party who is appropriately before the court on this appeal. cf. United States v. Brooklier, 685 F.2d 1162, 1165 (9th Cir. 1982) (media, as nonparties, do not have standing to appeal district court's order barring access to certain portions of criminal proceedings). As a fugitive from justice, he cannot pursue the appeal. See Molinaro v. New Jersey, 396 U.S. 365, 366 (1970).



The panel unanimously finds this case suitable for disposition without oral argument. Fed. R. App. P. 34(a); 9th Cir.R. 34-4


The Honorable Marilyn L. Huff, United States District Judge for the Southern District of California, sitting by designation
