As you may (or may not) remember, the 2nd Circuit decided United States v. Decastro, No. 10-3773, 2012 U.S. (June 1, 2012). Then on June 6th, the Court ordered supplemental briefs from the Appellants and Appellees, as to how that case might or might not have merit in deciding the case at bar.
What follows will be the supplemental brief by the Appellants/Plaintiffs (Kachalsky) and then the reply brief by the Appellees/Defendants (State of New York).
