 United States v. Salerno
Salerno objected to the admission of this testimony, some of which was not offered by the government at the first trial, arguing that it was not in furtherance of the charged conspiracy, that it concerned uncharged acts, and that its probative value was substantially outweighed by its unfair prejudice.

Salerno first contends that he was prejudiced by the government's belated disclosure of the scale model, as well as the government's failure to disclose a written summary of the "expert" testimony of the model builder.
