United States v. Savage

In United States v. Savage, the 3rd Circuit reviewed the multiple sentences of death imposed at the conclusion of one of the most high-profile prosecutions in Philadelphia in the 21st Century. The Court ruled on numerous issues over its 200-plus page opinion. Of particular note, the Court ruled that the defendant was not entitled to any relief on his claim that the record on appeal was not complete because there were numerous emails and other communications from the District Court that were not available to him. The 3rd Circuit held that the defendant could not receive relief on those claims because he did not seek to recreate the record under Federal Rule of Appellate Procedure 10
