Eighth Circuit (Summary from site):
124020P.pdf 05/24/2013 United States v. Jeremiah Wroblewski U.S. Court of Appeals Case No: 12-4020 U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Iowa, Waterloo [PUBLISHED] [Per Curiam - Before Shepherd, Arnold and Melloy, Circuit Judges] Criminal case - Sentencing. The district court did not err in imposing a special condition of supervised release which ordered defendant to have no contact with his girlfriend as he had a history of domestic violence and one of his supervised-release violations was related to an altercation with the woman; however, that portion of the restriction prohibiting defendant from having any contact with her family was more restrictive than necessary and is reversed.
Apologies for all the short form updates of late -- we try to avoid it, as it makes the tags less useful. Back to long form next week. Probably.
