Howard M. Shapiro and David Z. Seide of Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr have an important commentary piece on Stringer in Legal Times. One can access it here via the site's free registration. They provide an important piece of advice to defense counsel - "Defense counsel should keep pushing for a detailed record of communications and interaction between civil and criminal agencies because prosecutors and civil enforcement attorneys will continue to risk crossing the line every time they coordinate their investigations."
For background on the Stringer decision, see here and here.
