I've updated here the Ninth Circuit version of my Nuts & Bolts Guide To Fed. R. Crim. P. 29 Motions for Acquittal For Defense Attorneys.
For those outside the Ninth Circuit, here is a national edition of the same with more cites from other circuits: Nuts & Bolts Guide To Fed. R. Crim. P. 29 Motions--National Edition. An earlier version was published in "The Champion," the monthly magazine of the National Association of Criminal Defense Attorneys.
