#48: United States v. Clay: A Case Study in Overcriminalization and Unchecked Prosecutorial Discretion
NACDL Director of Public Affairs & Communications Ivan J. Dominguez recently had the opportunity to sit down with attorney Matt Kaiser, a partner at the firm of Kaiser, LeGrand & Dillon PLLC in Washington, DC. Mr. Kaiser was lead counsel on an amicus curiae, or friend-of-the-court, brief submitted to the United States Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit in the case of United States v. Clay. The brief was submitted on behalf of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, or NACDL, the Reason Foundation, and Five Criminal and Health Law Scholars. This podcast is about that case – United States v. Clay – and the very serious issues implicated by the federal prosecution of the defendants in this case. Selected briefs and related materials about this case are available at www.nacdl.org/USvClay. Learn more about NACDL. Ivan J. Dominguez, host.
