Description: With prosecutorial misconduct scandals splashing across the front page one after the other, this program examines these recent cases and explores their impact on white collar criminal cases.  Through the use of a detailed hypothetical, pulling on facts from the Stevens, Broadcom and Blackwater cases, this distinguished panel explores the line between strategy and misconduct.  When can a prosecutor take advantage of representation conflicts and disqualifications?  What are a prosecutor’s Brady obligations during plea negotiations?  Where does a failure to inquire excuse a failure to disclose?  And as each panelist steps into a role, with Federal District Judge Ricardo M. Urbina providing the judicial perspective, this program dissects the ethical and strategic implications for the white collar defendant.  The program closes by discussing different attempts at discover reform, such as the use of open-file discovery by many jurisdictions, and the current administration’s attitude towards these problems.  For the white collar defense attorney, this program is a critical guide for uncovering prosecutorial abuse and a blueprint on how to use it for the strategic advantage.
