The Best Of Everything, Take 3: Evidence Professors Submit Amicus Brief In Best Evidence Case

A few days ago, I posted an entry about the filing of a petition for a writ of certiorari with the Supreme Court in United States v. Smith2009 WL 1452045 (4th Cir. 2009), the case in which I think that the Fourth Circuit made an erroneous Best Evidence ruling. Thereafter, Matthew R. Segal, the Assistant Public Defender who filed the petition, forwarded me an amicus brief submitted in support of the petition by Georgetown University Law Center  Professor Paul Rothstein and University of California, Berkeley, School of Law Professor Eleanor Swift. I strongly agree with the points made in the brief and have provided a link below from which reader can download the brief.
