In US v. Saingerard, No. 09-14740, defendant's appeal from the district court's determination that defendant was competent to stand trial, the court affirmed where defendant was given ample opportunity to demonstrate incompetence to stand trial, and the district court did not commit clear error in considering the conflicting expert testimony and crediting one view over the other.

As the court wrote:  "Saingelus Saingerard appeals, contesting the district court's determination that Saingerard was competent to stand trial.   No reversible error has been shown;  we affirm.

During a period of supervised release following his conviction for several federal drug offenses, Saingerard resided in an Immigrations and Customs Enforcement processing center. While there, he punched an officer and bit off a portion of the officer's little finger.  Saingerard was indicted on one count of assaulting a federal officer in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 111(a)(1)."
