By FindLaw Staff on December 07, 2009 2:42 PM

In an action challenging the Attorney General's denial of citizenship to plaintiff, summary judgment for defendants is affirmed where plaintiff's conviction under 18 U.S.C. section 1344 for attempting to execute a fraudulent scheme to obtain money from a bank constituted an "aggravated felony" as defined in 8 U.S.C. section 1101(a)(43)(M)(i) and that conviction for an aggravated felony made one ineligible for naturalization under 8 U.S.C. section 1101(f)(8).
