Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Defendant's sentence for fraud or misapplication concerning federal funds is affirmed where: 1) an obstruction of justice enhancement imposed by the district court was appropriate because defendant ordered the destruction of time records that would have shown inconsistencies in reporting practices; 2) the major role enhancement was appropriate because defendant's high-placed role in the scheme was undisputed; and 3) there was no clear error in a district court's finding that defendant's illegal conduct involved more than ten and less than fifty victims.
