The Champion (National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers)
Litigation partner Jacques Semmelman and litigation associate Brian White have collaborated on an article titled 'Obtaining Bail in International Extradition Cases,' that appeared in the January/February 2011 issue of The Champion, the magazine of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL). The NACDL is the leading criminal defense bar organization in the United States.
Unlike bail in ordinary criminal cases, a defendant must show 'special circumstances' in order to be released on bail while defending against extradition from the United States. The term 'special circumstances' was first used by the Supreme Court in 1903, without definition or explanation. More than a century of lower court jurisprudence has yielded inconsistent approaches to the question of what constitutes 'special circumstances.' The article describes the development of the doctrine, analyzes important themes, and offers practical guidance to lawyers navigating through this complex area of law.
