Stavrakis v. United States
Petition for certiorari denied on October 11, 2022
Issue: Whether a federal court, assessing the sufficiency
of the evidence in a criminal case based wholly on circumstantial evidence, must apply the “rule of equipoise” and grant a motion for judgment of acquittal
when, construing the evidence in the light most favorable to the government, evidence of guilt and innocence is evenly balanced.
