BACL Won a Major Victory in United States v. Liu

David J. Cohen and Jason T. Campbell of Bay Area Criminal Lawyers, PC won a major victory in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in the case of United States v. Liu. In a unanimous 32-page decision authored by Judge Jacqueline Nguyen, the Ninth Circuit reversed Mr. Liu's convictions on all four counts (including Count 2 which the court dismissed with prejudice) and vacated his four year prison sentence. In doing so, the court also issued sweeping legal proclamations strengthening the mens rea requirement for copyright infringement cases.
