"This is an appeal from a criminal misdemeanor conviction of a defendant convicted of badly soiling a courthouse bathroom." So began the majority opinion that a divided three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit issued last Friday.
As the first paragraph of Circuit Judge Juan R. Torruella's dissenting opinion explains:
The momentous importance of this case surely forecasts its deserved place in the annals of federal prosecutorial history. Before us is an appeal from a conviction of a citizen who was prosecuted for soiling federal property after he had the misfortune of involuntarily losing control of his bowels while on the premises of the United States District Court for the District of Maine. This incident was followed by the filing of multiple criminal charges.The opinions in the case span 53 pages, excluding the four color photographs appended to the dissent.
