ON BRIEF: Philip S. Kushner, Christian J. Grostic, KUSHNER, HAMED & GROSTIC, CO., LPA, Cleveland, Ohio, for Appellant. Daniel R. Ranke, UNITED STATES ATTORNEY’S OFFICE, Cleveland, Ohio, for Appellee.

Judge(s): SILER, WHITE, and THAPAR, Circuit Judges.

Court Appealed: Appeal from the United States District Court for the Northern District of Ohio at Cleveland.

SILER, Circuit Judge. Talman Harris appeals his criminal convictions and sentences, arguing that the district court erred by: (1) barring Harris from impeaching a government witness; (2) admitting government summary evidence; (3) giving an inaccurate jury instruction with regard to a stockbroker’s fiduciary duties; and (4) failing to investigate potential extraneous influence on a juror.
