Daniel C. Richman , Kate Stith and William J. Stuntz (Columbia Law School , Yale University - Law School and Harvard Law School) have posted Defining Federal Crimes - Chapters 2-4 (DEFINING FEDERAL CRIMES, Aspen Publishing, Forthcoming) on SSRN. Here is the abstract:
These are three chapters from a forthcoming Federal Criminal Law casebook that will focus on institutional interactions -- between Congress and the courts; the courts and prosecutors, and among elements within the federal enforcement bureaucracy. Chapter 2 focuses on criminal jurisdiction under the Commerce Clause. Chapter 3 generally considers how separation of powers issues play out in the interpretation of federal criminal statutes. Chapter 4 explores mail and wire fraud.
