USA caught bending (if not breaking it’s own rules) again…. This whole trial is extremely dodgy legally. But what to do when the law itself breaks the law? Sit back and watch the country collapse from it’s own corruption I suppose. The argument from Bills lawyer:
The use of this statue to criminalize the use of information within the public domain to commit any crime lacks a rational basis, infringes on the First Amendment right to freedom of speech, chills the exercise of free speech by potentially criminalizing and making it a federal felony to use a name or address that is already within the public domain lest someone’s name be uttered in the context of committing a crime. This statute is constitutionally applied only in the context of the fraudulent use of identification documents, authentication features and information. It cannot be applied here in a constitutional way. Accordingly, a judgment of acquittal must be granted as to Count VI.
