Bravo-Fernandez v. United States
United States Supreme Court; Case No. 15-537
Decision below United States v. Bravo-Fernandez, 790 F.3d 41 (1st Cir. June 15, 2015).
Relying on a vacated conviction to deprive an acquittal of its collateral estoppel effect is inconsistent with Yeager and fundamentally unfair. The First Circuit's decision makes collateral estoppel effectively unavailable in multi-count prosecutions resulting in a vacated conviction. The First Circuit's decision encourages overcharging and successive prosecutions.
