Before FLAUM and EASTERBROOK, Circuit Judges, and WEIGEL, Senior District Judge.
United States Court of Appeals, Seventh Circuit.
FLAUM, Circuit Judge.
Appellant Peter Dounias appeals his conviction, following a jury trial, of one count of extortion in violation of the Hobbs Act, 18 U.S.C. § 1951 (1980). Appellant contests the district court's ruling that severance from his co-defendants was not necessary and challenges the sufficiency of the evidence upon which this conviction was based. We affirm with regard to both issues and uphold the conviction.
