Recusal. The Second Circuit overturned the conviction of two men conicted of a series of financial crimes based on the refusal of the district judge to recuse himself. The Court made clear that it was dealing only with the appearance of impartiality and noted that there was nothing suggesting that the district judge had acted improperly.
