Southern District Judge Richard Sullivan in U.S. vs. Goffer, 10-cr-00056, turned aside the petition of former lawyer Michael Kimelman, who said he suffered from ineffective assistance of counsel on his appeal in the Galleon Group insider-trading scandal.
Kimelman argued that defense lawyer Michael Sommer of Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati should have raised the same arguments on his appeal that later proved successful in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit’s decision in U.S. v. Newman.
