Partner Daniel Noble quoted in The Wall Street Journal regarding evidentiary issues arising from presidential pardon in multi-defendant case

March 4, 2021

On March 2, Finn Dixon & Herling partner Daniel Noble was quoted in the Wall Street Journal regarding the potential impact of not dismissing the indictment against Steve Bannon, notwithstanding his pardon by former President Donald Trump.  Bannon’s alleged co-conspirators, who were not pardoned, may still face trial in the fraud and money laundering case pending in the Southern District of New York (SDNY). Daniel opined that not dismissing the indictment could make it easier for prosecutors to seek to introduce Bannon’s statements against his alleged co-conspirators at trial.

Daniel regularly encountered such evidentiary issues in the white-collar criminal cases he investigated and prosecuted for seven years as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in SDNY.  Daniel’s white-collar criminal trials involved charges of securities fraud, mail and wire fraud, bank fraud, money laundering, and tax evasion, among other crimes.  Daniel also served as Co-Chief of the  Complex Frauds and Cybercrime Unit, where he oversaw some of SDNY’s most significant white-collar prosecutions.
