Mark Miller, managing attorney for PLF’s Atlantic Center, offers his analysis of the Supreme Court ruling in Yates v. United States, a favorable decision for Florida commercial fisherman, John Yates, ending his eight-year battle with the federal government about some undersized fish in his catch.  PLF filed an amicus brief in support of Yates in a case of the federal government misusing its law enforcement authority to threaten Americans with exorbitant penalties for conduct that does not pose a threat to health, safety, or the environment.  Federal authorities charged Yates with violating several federal criminal laws, including the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, a law that was passed in the wake of the Enron scandal on Wall Street.
