Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
22-419 7th Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2022

Issues: (1) Whether the federal wire-fraud statute, 18 U.S.C. § 1343, criminalizes any “implied misrepresentation” that induces another to enter into a financial transaction, even when the alleged misrepresentation relates to a fact extrinsic to the essential elements of the bargain; and (2) whether the Speedy Trial Act allows a district court to enter a retroactive “ends-of-justice” exclusion of time based on after-the-fact “ends-of-justice” findings to “cure” a Speedy Trial Act violation that already has occurred.
