'Yates v. United States' - Post-Argument SCOTUScast

Federalist Society SCOTUScast featuring Todd Braunstein.
"On November 5, 2014, the Supreme Court heard oral argument in Yates v. United States. This case concerns whether Mr. Yates was given fair notice that throwing undersized fish back into the Gulf of Mexico during the course of an investigation would violate the 'document shredding provision' of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, which makes it a crime for anyone who 'knowingly alters, destroys, mutilates, conceals, covers up, falsifies, or makes a false entry in any record, document, or tangible object' with the intent to impede or obstruct an investigation."
