Title: [6WashJLTech&Arts273] United States v. Berger: The Rejection of Civil Loss Causation Principles in Connection with Criminal Securities Fraud
Author: Jones, James A.; Washington Journal of Law, Technology & Arts
Abstract: Abstract: In United States v. Berger, a Ninth Circuit panel declined to apply the civil loss causation principles established by the United States Supreme Court in Dura Pharmaceuticals, Inc. v. Broudo in connection with sentencing in a criminal securities fraud prosecution. The Ninth Circuit declined to follow Second and Fifth Circuit decisions endorsing the application of Dura Pharmaceuticals to criminal sentencing, creating a circuit split. This Article examines this split over how to apply the loss causation principles of Dura Pharmaceuticals in connection with sentencing in criminal securities fraud prosecutions. In addition, this Article discusses the implications of each approach for criminal securities fraud prosecutions, and more specifically, for sentencing.
