"What Kind of Mad Prosecutor" Brought Us This White Collar Case

Prof. Ellen Podgor writing recently in the Vermont Law Review discussed my office's Seventh Circuit win in United States v. Weimert, 819 F.3d 351 (7th Cir 2016). In criticizing government efforts to expand the use of the mail/wire fraud statutes, Podgor posited that the prosecution has used these statues in cases that are more easily subject to a civil action and that prosecutors are seemingly trying to criminalize civil contract breaches.

David Weimert remains as one of the few if any other defendants who took on SIGTARP and prevailed.
