Child Pornography Restitution

This morning, the Ninth Circuit denied a petition for writ of mandamus by two child pornography victims in Amy & Vicky v. U.S. District Court, No. 13-71486. The victims challenged the award of $17,307.44 and $2,881.05 as inadequate.  The panel declined to overrule United States v. Kennedy, 643 F.3d 1251 (9th Cir. 2011).  (No surprise there.  You have to go to the en banc court to overrule a circuit precedent.)

Amy and Vicky are represented by our good friend, Professor Paul Cassell.  I expect he will take the case further.
