Why A 76-Year-Old Top Court Case Could Undo 'Varsity Blues'

Co-Chair of the White Collar Defense and Government Investigations Practice, Eóin Beirne, spoke to Law360 about the uncertain conviction status of the "Varsity Blues" case. Eóin commented, "Charging the different parents in the "Varsity Blues" cases and lumping the likes of Lori Loughlin, Isackson and others with Wilson and Abdelaziz paid off for the government in multiple ways until the First Circuit arguments. Not only did the big Kotteakos conspiracy survive the motion to dismiss that we filed, but Judge Gorton proved to be a very favorable judge for the government."
