Dan Wenner and Sunita Paknikar wrote an article, "Weimert and Judicial Scrutiny of Prosecutorial Judgment," for Law360. The article analyzes the oral argument before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, in which Judge David Hamilton expressed skepticism about whether Weimert's conduct constituted a crime or merely tough negotiating tactics. The article also analyzed oral arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court in Bond v. United States and Yates v. United States in which the Justices challenged the government about the breadth of the federal criminal statutes at issue in those cases.
