Partner Jacques Semmelman Quoted in Wall Street Journal on Edward Snowden (NSA Leaks) Case

Litigation partner Jacques Semmelman was quoted in the Wall Street Journal on June 12, 2013, in an article titled “Prosecutors Develop an Extradition Strategy.”  The article discusses the NSA leaks by recently-revealed source Edward Snowden, and the possible legal impediments to his extradition to the U.S.  Mr. Semmelman, described as a “New York lawyer who specializes in extradition cases,” is quoted with regard to the "political offense exception" to extradition, and the role it is expected to play in the case.
