Letter to Senators on Tribal Cases in Reauthorizing the Violence Against Women Act (April 2012)
Letter with the National Association of Federal Defenders to members of the Senate regarding concerns for cases in tribal courts as addressed in the proposed Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2012 (S. 1925).
State Farm v. United States ex rel. Rigsby
Brief of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers as Amicus Curiae in Support of Petitioner.
Argument: The structure of the False Claims Act and the legislative history of the seal provision demonstrate an intent to preserve the government's interest in enforcement and the defendant's rights. In the current legal regime, seal violations automatically infringe defendant's rights. The seal provision must be strictly enforced because it is otherwise in relators' personal interest to violate the seal.
