Santos v. U.S., 04-4221

Grant of habeas corpus for defendants who were convicted of money laundering after operating an illegal lottery, or "bolita", is affirmed where the court declined to overturn US v. Scialabba, 282 F.3d 475 (7th Cir. 2002), which defined "proceeds" to mean net income, as opposed to gross income.
