* United States v. Arellano-Felix (S.D. Cal. Apr. 29, 2011)

My apologies for the last message coming through garbled (I just don’t know why sometimes the system sometimes can’t properly transmit text that looks fine when I drafted it). In any event, the content of the last message simply stated that after nine years of litigation and appeals, Mexico has succeeded in extraditing a leader of the Arellano-Felix Organization—Tijuana’s dominant cartel—to the United States to face a RICO prosecution. This may seem an odd fit for a national security law list, but my sense is that the extradition of senior cartel leadership figures is a crucial and increasingly important aspect of US-Mexico cooperation in the counter-cartel effort.
