Documents

United States v. Harmon

9th Circuit Court of Appeals; Case No. 15-10034

Prior Decision

Ninth Circuit panel decision 833 F.3d 1199 (9th Cir. Aug. 18, 2016).

Argument

This Court can and should grant relief where the Government's misconduct prevents the grand jury from exercising its discretionary function. The panel's shielding of AUSA Cheng's identity demonstrates the non-existent deterrence presented by extra-judicial remedies.
