Petition of the day
The petition of the day is:
Issue: (1) Whether a conclusion about the meaning of scientific data, one on which scientists may reasonably disagree, satisfies the element of a “false or fraudulent” statement under the wire fraud statute, 18 U.S.C. § 1343; and (2) whether applying 18 U.S.C. § 1343 to scientific conclusions drawn from accurate data violates the First Amendment’s proscription against viewpoint discrimination, or renders the statute, as applied, unconstitutionally vague.
