Jenny Martinez is quoted on the use of the material support statute in the prosecution of terrorism cases in the context of the arrest of a San Jose man who is alleged to have ties to al Qaeda and whose "brother is one of the FBI's most wanted terrorists." KGO reports:

Jenny Martinez is a Stanford law professor who has argued before the Supreme Court in terrorism cases. She says the government is using its post 9/11 tools to thwart terrorism.

Jenny Martinez, Stanford Law School: "There have been a number of indictments brought under the materials support statute and this is one where they're saying this man in San Jose was proving material support to his brother who was a terrorist."
