US v. Moore, 06-1355

Conviction for possession of heroin with intent to distribute is affirmed where: 1) the district court did not abuse its discretion in allowing the testimony of an expert witness since neither side requested or assisted in a Rule 702 analysis; and 2) the evidence was sufficient to support the conviction. Two other appeals are dismissed as frivolous.
