In the now infamous words (or emailed acronyms, rather) of leaky-Chinese-Wall poster boy Frank Quattrone: NFW!!!:

A federal appeals court on Monday threw out the conviction of former investment banker Frank Quattrone, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.

Note that this is happening approximately 16 months into an what would have been an 18 month sentence (that was arguably well beyond federal standards in the first place.) The federal judiciary system won't be getting any thank you cards for that one.
