United States v. Jones, Docket No. 03-1626 (2d Cir. June 30, 2006) (Kearse, Miner, Hall): This fact-intensive opinion upholds Jones’s convictions (for RICO, RICO conspiracy, VICAR conspiracy, and drug conspiracy) against his sufficiency, multiplicity, retroactive misjoinder, and IAC challenges. No new law is made, and even a quick reading of this sad saga is enough to dampen one’s weekend. The opinion is recommended only for those with a particular interest in the inner workings of drug trafficking networks formerly operating inside Bridgeport’s P.T. Barnum Projects. A rare species, we suspect, but maybe there’s one of those born every minute, too.
