US v. Nobari, No. 06-10465

Defendants' drug conspiracy convictions are affirmed where the prosecution improperly presented, as evidence of defendants' guilt, testimony that drew generalizations on the basis of ethnicity, but the other evidence against defendants was overwhelming and thus the error was harmless.
