FILE- In this Sept. 18, 2014, file photo, Dennis Riordan, left, attorney for defendant Barry Bonds, argues before an 11-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco.
"I think the 10-1 vote indicates that it was a farce," said Bonds' appellate lawyer, Dennis Riordan. "The greatest impact is the damage it undid. We had a panel opinion that said if you're asked a question on page 78 and you digress before you answer it directly on page 81, you're a federal felon."
