McKenzie Scott in Action

Watch recent arguments before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals below

July 12, 2018
United States v. Spanier
Appeal, after a third trial, in a securities-fraud prosecution. Mr. Scott argues that the government’s theory of prosecution was unlawful, and that reversal for a fourth trial should result. The Court of Appeals reversed all counts of conviction two weeks later.
January 8, 2016
United States v. Lustig
Tim Scott challenges the warrantless search of a defendant’s cell phones, and whether the “good faith” exception should save the government from the suppression of evidence.
May 17, 2018
United States v. Baptista
Appeal of the denial of a motion to withdraw a plea and put on a necessity defense; a father tries to reclaim his children after his ex-wife kidnaps them.
February 6, 2018
United States v. Millan
Tim Scott appeals a federal conviction for wire fraud, arguing that the government violated the rules of evidence through questionable financial summaries and testimony. (Begins at 8:29.)
