Quattrone conviction overturned

Occasional Point of Law bloggers Larry Ribstein and Tom Kirkendall comment on the Second Circuit's reversal of the conviction of Frank Quattrone for sending an e-mail telling employees to clean up their files, which was characterized as the government as an obstruction of justice.

In the Washington Post, University of Texas law professor Henry Hu is quoted as saying "This kind of thing will undermine the deterrence idea of white-collar crime prosecution." I'm trying to remember the last time a law professor suggested that a law school's capital-crime defense legal clinic undermined the deterrence idea of violent crime prosecution.
