Of course there will be an appeal.



the feds are saying he doesn't deserve an appeal because he has no new evidence. they are saying that his request for an appeal is doomed. of course, them saying this is obviously posturing for the media hoping to influence the process. not a lawyer, but their logic seems sound. on the other side it's hard to believe that multi million dollar lawyers wearing $2K suits won't be able to find a way to junk up the system. the crooked Governor of Va. mcdonnell got an appeal and got off and the crooked state senator in ny sheldon silver is trying to use mcdonnell's arguments to get an appeal so he can resume his soft life. but they were politicians. even more crooked than walters and much more powerful.

I think I'd mostly agree with that. But something folks not familiar with the local machine may not know is that for Las Vegas, Clark County, and some statewide Nevada politicians and public officials, Walters is either known as "Sir" or else addressed by the longer version "Yessir." That said, this is in Federal jurisdiction; the only reason it didn't get quashed over lunch.
Nevermind.

I seem to recall that he has a lease on some of the land needed for the Raiders stadium.

Thanks for your post and the link. However, that was related to a motion for a new trial, not an appeal of the verdict to the appellate court. God Bless You and OO.

Law360, New York (May 26, 2017, 8:13 PM EDT) -- Manhattan federal prosecutors said in court papers Friday that prominent gambler Billy Walters' request for a new insider trading trial because former Dean Foods Chairman Tom Davis allegedly perjured himself is no more than a rehash of failed arguments presented during summation that is doomed without new evidence.

The government said that Walters cannot show, based on the evidence presented, that Davis knowingly lied about when Walters gave him a burner phone the "Batphone" to pass on inside information, saying that if Davis was...

That was the Bali Hai golf course site. I don't believe he has any interest in the new site that was selected.

Anybody heard anything about Billy Walters sentencing? I thought it was going to be in July but I haven't seen anything in the news.

I can't imagine he bought his way out of this one.

As Charlie Manson said best..."There is sex in prison"....while we all doubt a wealthy guy convicted of white collar crimes will do real time in a real prison, he still might learn a thing or two in whatever country club he spends most of the rest of his life.

Prosecutors asking for 10 year jail sentence while Billy Walters attorneys suggested one year. We should know on Friday.
