The U.S. Supreme Court’s 2008-2009 term featured three significant opinions that have an impact on white-collar practice. Despite the fact that many believe the current Court is conservative in criminal matters, two of those three decisions were decided in favor of defendants. The first deals with the admissibility of scientific forensic reports which offer evidence against a defendant and the constitutional right to confrontation. The second addresses the Double Jeopardy Clause and a defendant’s exposure to reprosecution when a jury has rendered an acquittal on some counts, yet hung on the others. Finally, the Supreme Court addressed the meaning of “aggravated felony” in connection with economic crimes as contained in the immigration statute allowing for the deportation of an individual convicted of such a felony.
