US v. Groves, 05-2902

A conviction for being a felon possessing a firearm and possessing ammunition is reversed in part as to the firearm possession charge pursuant to defendant's claim that the evidence was insufficient to demonstrate that the firearm traveled in interstate commerce. On remand, the district court is directed to enter fact-findings in support of its ruling on a motion to suppress as there was insufficient fact-finding and analysis for appellate review for purposes of the ammunition count.
