United States v. James F. Lynch

Lynch was convicted for conspiracy to commit honest services fraud. He filed a Motion to Vacate under 28 U.S.C. § 2255 and 28 U.S.C. § 1651(a). The Government opposed his motion. Since those filings, his supervised release terminated and thus he supplemented his Motion to Vacate with a Motion for Writ of Coram Nobis. The District Court granted Lynch's motions for writ of error coram nobis and to vacate judgment under 28 U.S.C. § 1651(a). The court therefore vacated and set aside his conviction and sentence, and also ordered the government to repay all fines Lynch paid.
