Judge Dismisses First Count of Kuehne Indictment

Southern District of Florida Blog, Judge Cooke grants Ben Kuehne's motion to dismiss Count 1.

Full text of Judge Cooke's opinion. Not my area of law, but it looks perfectly sensible to me.

Incidentally, I have yet to meet anyone who thinks this case should have been brought, or that the primary motive was anything other than terrorizing the local bar in order to dissuade them from taking big drug cases. Maybe the changeover in the Justice Department will be an occasion to dismiss it…although I'm not optimistic.
