UNITED STATES of America, Plaintiff-Appellee, v. Frank PEDOTE, Michael DeMaro and Audrey DeMaro, Defendants-Appellants.

United States Court of Appeals, Seventh Circuit.

Decided May 27, 1977.

Attorney(s) appearing for the Case

Gerald M. Werksman, Bernard B. Brody, Chicago, Ill., for defendants-appellants.

Samuel K. Skinner, U.S. Atty., James D. Henderson, Asst. U.S. Atty., Chicago, Ill., for plaintiff-appellee.

Before SWYGERT and SPRECHER, Circuit Judges, and JAMESON, Senior District Judge.


Appellants' contention that the failure of the Government to republish schedules of controlled substances under 21 U.S.C. § 812(a) resulted in a failure of proof that heroin is a controlled substance was decided adversely to them in the recent Ninth Circuit decisions of United States v. Eddy, 549 F.2d 108 (9 Cir. 1976) and United States v. Monroe, 552 F.2d 860 (9 Cir. 1977). We adopt their reasoning here. The post-trial motion for a new trial or judgment of acquittal was properly denied.

The judgments of conviction are affirmed.1


* Senior Judge William J. Jameson of the District of Montana is sitting by designation.
1. Appellant's other contentions do not involve any principles of law not heretofore decided by this court and have been disposed of by order without publication.
