As expected, 9th Circuit sides with Pro in drug case


  Defense attorneys for Anthony Eppolito and Guido Bravatti, who face drug charges related to the "Mafia Cops" case, took their best shot when they challenged U.S. District Judge Philip Pro's denial of their motion to dismiss indictments on double jeopardy grounds. The 9th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals this week slapped down the appeal and sided with Pro. The appeal was argued March 9.
