New Case Spotlight

In U.S. v. Smith, 03-13639, the Eleventh Circuit held that "the production of child pornography solely within one state--even with materials that have traveled in interstate commerce--does not have a substantial enough effect on interstate commerce to give rise to federal jurisdiction."  The decision created a split with the First Circuit's decision in United States v. Morales-De Jesus, 372 F.3d 6 (2004).  Case here and here.  U.S. Law Week analysis here.  [Mark Godsey]
