United States: Jones Day Partners Publish Op-Ed In Forbes Regarding New Pleading Standard In Criminal Cases
Last Updated: October 5 2016

Jones Day's Noel Francisco and James Burnham opine in Forbes that there is no good reason for refusing to hold criminal prosecutors to the same legal standard as civil plaintiffs. Leaving challenges to prosecutors' legal theories for the end of every case—rather than permitting meaningful challenges to those theories early in the process—gives federal prosecutors essentially unreviewable power to subject targeted individuals to full-blown criminal trials, and fosters whole areas of federal criminal law where judicial opinions are confusing and conflicting, such that nobody knows what is illegal.
