McNab v. U.S.

Date: August 11, 2011

U.S. Supreme Court

The NFIB Legal Center supported four seafood importers and dealers who were convicted and sentenced up to eight years in prison for violating an obscure (and now repealed) Honduran law.  The charges against the four individuals were based upon alleged violations of the Lacey Act, which makes it illegal to import any fish or wildlife in violation of foreign law.  The Honduran government has since repealed the law that was the basis for the convictions.  The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit upheld the convictions.

Status:  DECIDED.  Amicus brief in support of the defendants/appellants’ petitions for review filed 12/29/03.  Review denied by U.S. Supreme Court 02/23/04.
