New Filing in Flores-Figueroa v. United States

Publication Date: 
December 15, 2008

SCOTUSBlog mentions Professors Pamela S. Karlan, Jeffrey L. Fisher, and Lecturers in Law Thomas C. Goldstein and Kevin R. Russell as counselors in the Brief for the Petitioner in Monday's Supreme Court case Flores-Figueroa v. United States. Students Lisa Ehrlich, Dan Matro, and David Owens from the Supreme Court Litigation Clinic helped write the brief:

Today we filed petitioner’s brief in Flores-Figueroa v. United States, No. 08-108. The case presents the question whether to establish a violation of the federal “aggravated identity theft” statute, the Government must prove that the defendant knew that the false identification numbers he was using in fact belonged to someone else (as opposed to having been simply fabricated and issued to no one).

The brief was written with the assistance of Stanford law students Lisa Ehrlich, Dan Matro, and David Owens.
