Federal Law: Economic Espionage-Analysis of U.S. v Hu


The Federal Law Section will host a 1 General hour CLE on December 8. This CLE will examine the difficulties of prosecuting under the Economic Espionage Act and how prosecutors are turning to the classic wire fraud (18 U.S.C. §1343) and false statements (18 U.S.C. §1001) criminal statutes to obtain convictions. Specifically, this CLE will review the recent case of the United States v. Anming Hu in the Eastern District of Tennessee where the defendant’s motion for a judgment of acquittal was granted after a mistrial, and the defendant was acquitted on all counts.
