February 18, 2014 702173802 Featured Case Filed opinion of the court by Judge Posner. The defendants make a number of other arguments, but they are makeweights, repetitive, or frivolous, and do not merit discussion, with one minor exception. The defendants are correct that the postjudgment interest rate applicable to the judgment entered by the district court (as distinct from the earlier state court judgment) is 0.14 percent per annum, not the 0.15 percent that the district court awarded. 28 U.S.C. 1961(a). This works out to a difference of about $270 a year on a judgment of $2.7 million. Nevertheless the defendants are entitled to the correction, and we direct the district judge to make it. With that minor modification, the judgment of the district court is AFFIRMED. Richard A. Posner, Circuit Judge; Kenneth F. Ripple, Circuit Judge and J. Phil Gilbert, District Court Judge*. (*Of the Southern District of Illinois, sitting by designation.) [6553293-1] [6553293] [13-1797, 13-1807]
