United States v. Silver, No. 18-2380 (2d Cir. 2020)Annotate this Case
The Second Circuit denied defendant's motion to stay issuance of the judgment mandate pending his filing a petition for certiorari to the Supreme Court. Defendant was convicted of two counts each of honest services mail fraud, honest services wire fraud, and Hobbs Act extortion, and one count of money laundering. The court held that defendant presented no substantial questions raising either a reasonable probability that four justices will vote to grant certiorari, or a fair prospect that five justices will vote to reverse this court's judgment. The court also held that defendant failed to show good cause for issuing the stay.
