Failure to Advance Meaningful Legal Argument Waives Issue on Appeal
From Berry v Dillon, 2008 U.S. App. LEXIS 13898 (9th Cir. June 27, 2008):
Any arguments related to Berry's claims for violations of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO), violations of the Sherman Act, conspiracy to commit copyright infringement, and contributory infringement were made in passing, and are not supported by any meaningful legal argument. Accordingly, they are waived. Fed. R. App. P. 28(a)(9); Ghahremani v. Gonzales, 498 F.3d 993, 997 (9th Cir. 2007).
