My prediction is that Martha walks. Stephen Bainbridge argues that the case should never have been brought, and I'm inclined to agree. There is a big world of crime and corruption out there, and while it may be true that white collar cases work as deterrents better than any other criminal prosecution, the sort of resources that went into this case could have, and should have, been spent on any number of more serious matters. "We have here a case in which is the government flung allegations at Stewart, which they ended up deciding not to charge her with. The government then prosecuted Stewart for having denied the very same allegations the government decided it couldn't prove." Exactly. (Via Ernie.)
