US v. BRITTON, 01-2074

In appeals from convictions for mail fraud, 1) sufficient evidence established intent to defraud, 2) attorney's motion to withdraw based on knowledge that he possessed and could use to impeach a government witness was appropriately denied where that information was easily provided by records and through cross-examination, and 3) exclusion of expert testimony was harmless where proffered testimony only addressed counts on which appellant was acquitted.
