US v. Sellers, 16-50061

Held that a defendant caught in a reverse-string operation might be entitled to obtain discovery from the government on his selective enforcement claim. The defendant argued that he was targeted in the reverse-string based on his race. Vacating an order denying him discovery, the Ninth Circuit held that in stash house reverse-sting cases, selective enforcement claims are governed by a less rigorous standard than that applied to claims of selective prosecution under US v. Armstrong, 517 U.S. 456 (1996). The panel remanded for further proceedings on his request for discovery.
