Full Circuit to Hear Challenge to Scope of Search Warrants

Publisher: New York Law Journal
October 1, 2015

Stan Twardy, Dan Wenner and John Cerreta were mentioned in an article, “Full Circuit to Hear Challenge to Scope of Search Warrants,” in the New York Law Journal for representing Stavros Ganias in a rare en banc sitting. The case arose out of the government’s investigation into Ganias, an accountant. During its investigation, pursuant to a search warrant, the government seized Ganias’s hard drives for information about two of his clients. Years later, agents obtained a second warrant for information from those same hard drives, which they used to convict Ganias. A panel of the Second Circuit suppressed the evidence seized pursuant to the second warrant and vacated the conviction. The Second Circuit then took the case en banc to reconsider the issue.
