The appellant challenges the revocation of his conditional release under 18 U.S.C. §4243(g). There is no specific threshold or quantum of evidence that requires the district court to order a competency hearing; the presence or absence of mental illness or brain disorder is not dispositive as to competency. The order of revocation is affirmed. 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, No. 11-51084, 02-18-2013.
