Literary criticisms of law by Guyora Binder ( )
15 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 877 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this book, the first to offer a comprehensive examination of the emerging study of law as literature, Guyora Binder and Robert Weisberg show that law is not only a scheme of social order, but also a process of creating meaning, and a crucial dimension of modern culture. They present lawyers as literary innovators, who creatively interpret legal authority, narrate disputed facts and hypothetical fictions, represent persons before the law, move audiences with artful rhetoric, and invent new legal forms and concepts. Binder and Weisberg explain the literary theories and methods increasingly ap

Fact-finding in white collar criminal prosecutions when prosecutors go too far ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Richard Marmaro, head of Skadden's west coast SEC enforcement and white collar defense practice, talks about the Broadcom trial and how prosecutorial misconduct led to its dismissal. He talks about the strategies used in the trial and how the facts led to the dismissal of the case. Broadcom Corp.'s former chief executive and financial officers won dismissal of criminal charges over stock-option backdating after a federal judge found that prosecutors had intimidated witnesses. U.S. District Judge Cormac J. Carney ended the trial of former finance chief William Ruehle and threw out the charges against former CEO and co-founder Henry Nicholas, who was scheduled to go to trial later

Statistics and probability in criminal trials the good, the bad, and the ugly by Marcello Di Bello ( )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Is a high probability of guilt, in and of itself, enough to convict? I answer in the negative. The prosecutor's burden of proof does not only consist in establishing the high probability of the defendant's guilt; it also consists in offering a reasonably specific narrative of the crime. This can explain, among other things, the nuances of using statistical evidence in criminal trials. Taking DNA evidence as a case study, I argue that statistical evidence can be particularly problematic whenever it fails to support a reasonably specific narrative of the crime
