The Seventh Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals has ruled in favor of the firm’s client, allowing him to bring his claim for a new trial based on newly discovered evidence under Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 33, instead of in a separate, habeas-corpus action under 28 U.S.C. sec. 2255.

Michelle Jacobs and Vanessa Eisenmann represented the defendant on appeal, and Eisenmann presented oral argument.
