United States v. Blaszczak
2nd Circuit Court of Appeals; Case No. 18-2811(L), 18-2825(Con), 18-2867(Con), 19-2878(Con)
Panel decision 947 F.3d 19 (2nd Cir. Dec. 30, 2019)
Designating information as confidential is not enough to make it “property” in the government’s hands. This Court should not expand Section 641 and provide the government with an all-purpose tool for prosecuting leaks.
