A Review of the Recent Supreme Court Term

Professor Rory Little (Hastings) moderated the recent ABA Criminal Justice Section Annual Supreme Court Review. Speakers on the panel were: Robert Dean, Katherine P. Failla, Professor Julie O'Sullivan (Georgetown),  and  Hon. Stephen C. Robinson.

Several white collar decisions were discussed.  In describing the discussion of these cases Professor Little states:

"There was a very spirited discussion led by Kate Failla, Chief of Criminal Appeals in the SDNY USAO, about Santos and Cuellar, the two money-laundering decisions, as well as Bridge and Stoneridge, addressing mail-fraud/RICO, and Securities fraud, respectively.  Kate noted the odd difference between the later two: no reliance required for mail-fraud/RICO, while Stoneridge required “reliance with a vengeance.”  Kate also noted that the Second Circuit may already be extending the Stoneridge case into criminal securities actions, in a decision two weeks ago."
