Tim Belevetz Quoted in Law360: "Lawyers Weigh in on DOJ's Newman Appeal to High Court"

Timothy Belevetz was quoted in the Law360 article, "Lawyers Weigh in on DOJ's Newman Appeal to High Court."

The article included: 

The U.S. Department of Justice has petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn its ruling in U.S. v. Newman et al. that raised the bar for prosecuting insider trading cases. Here, attorneys tell Law360 why the appeal is significant.

Timothy Belevetz: 

“Cert petitions initiated by the Justice Department in criminal cases are few and far between. Typically, there are anywhere from zero to a small handful each year. The solicitor general’s office is very selective with regard to the criminal cases it decides to take up to the Supreme Court. There has to be an issue affecting a significant law enforcement interest. Here, the Second Circuit’s ruling in many ways pulled the rug out from under the government, and it wants to find a way to reverse what it sees as a real threat to its ability to prosecute insider trading.”
