US v. Shaaban, 06-2801

After a conviction for offenses related to defendant's attempt to sell the names of CIA agents working covertly in Iraq to the Iraqi Intelligence Service, defendant's motion to recall the court's mandate is granted where defendant's counsel failed to adequately explain why, despite his initial view that a petition for rehearing would be appropriate, the actual disposition on appeal foreclosed the arguments that he had intended to raise in the petition. Counsel is relieved from his representation and new counsel will be appointed to consider filing a petition for rehearing if nonfrivolous grounds for the petition exist.
