United States v. Rubashkin

Amicus curiae brief of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and Eight Law Professors in support of appellant.

Brief filed: 01/13/2011


United States v. Rubashkin

8th Circuit Court of Appeals; Case No. 10-2487 & 10-3580


Per Morrison v. Olson(1988), a judge should not preside over a trial in which she was intimately involved with the prosecution in the events leading up to trial and should have disqualified herself from hearing defendant-appellant’s new trial motion when her pretrial participation in the prosecution belatedly came to light after defendant’s trial.
