"NY appeals court reinstates poker conviction": The Associated Press has this report.

And The New York Post has a related news update, although the headline is currently so inaccurate that I cannot bring myself to quote it.

You can access today's ruling of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit at this link.

A who's who of the nation's most talent appellate practitioners appeared on behalf of the defendant/appellee and his amicus supporters, but the Second Circuit nevertheless sided with the federal government. According to today's ruling, "the question of whether skill or chance predominates in poker is inapposite to this appeal."

Update: In other coverage, Nate Raymond of Reuters reports that "U.S. appeals court reinstates poker conviction."
