Litigation partners Marty Flumenbaum and Brad Karp’s latest Second Circuit Review column, “Defining the Scope of McDonnell v. United States,” was published in the October 25 issue of the New York Law Journal. The authors discuss McDonnell and its impact on public corruption cases throughout the country. In the Second Circuit, they note, several high profile convictions have been vacated for failing to comply with McDonnell’s new requirements on how juries must be charged on various elements of public corruption crimes. Litigation associate Joseph Delich assisted in the preparation of this article.
