My note –
In all honesty, where there is any place that has a membership which numbers around 42,000, there will be a likelihood that a substantial number will have ties into any given party and / or ideology. However, that said, it is fascinating to follow the overwhelming number of well-positioned relationships which follow from the Federalist Society – known for its conservative, narrow application of laws and Constitutional rights such that they are used to favor business, corporate rights and “sovereign” rights over those of the individual who has been harmed or in some way affected.

It is amazing how many places are being either run or influenced by these same people and ideologies especially in the application of policies, choices, decisions and coloring the ways in which each of us is allowed to live and to be free, to have the rights guaranteed to us by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, to pursue happiness and to have individual opportunities.

Early life

Dinh was born in Saigon, South Vietnam. He and his family emigrated to the United States to escape oppressive campaigns from the communist government of Vietnam in 1978. They initially settled in Portland, Oregon, but moved to Fullerton, California two years later.

Dinh graduated magna cum laude from Harvard University in 1990 with an A.B. in Government and Economics. He then attended Harvard Law School, where he was a Class Marshal, an Olin Research Fellow in Law and Economics, and Bluebook editor of the Harvard Law Review, and graduated magna cum laude in 1993.

Career

Law

After graduating from law school, Dinh served as a law clerk to Judge Laurence H. Silberman of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit and to U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor.

Dinh has served as Associate Special Counsel to the U.S. Senate Whitewater Committee, as Special Counsel to Senator Pete V. Domenici for the Impeachment Trial of President Bill Clinton, and as counsel to the Special Master in In re Austrian and German Bank Holocaust Litigation.

He is a member of the District of Columbia and Supreme Court bars.

In late 2003, he was one of a group of prominent U.S. security officials hired by ChoicePoint to advise the company on developing its government homeland security contracts.

Dinh currently serves on the boards of the News Corporation, Liberty’s Promise, the American Judicature Society, the Transition Committee for California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, the Section on National Security Law of the Association of American Law Schools, and the ABA Section on Administrative Law.

He currently resides in Washington, D.C., teaches at Georgetown University Law Center, and is the principal at Bancroft Associates PLLC. In 2006 he joined Kenneth Starr in challenging the constitutionality of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.[2]

His representative publications include Defending Liberty: Terrorism and Human Rights in the Helsinki Monitor, Codetermination and Corporate Governance in a Multinational Business Enterprise in the Journal of Corporation Law, and Financial Sector Reform and Economic Development in Vietnam in Law and Policy in International Business. He is also the author of Judicial Authority and Separation of Powers (forthcoming).
In September 2006 Dinh received publicity for representing Tom Perkins, a former Hewlett-Packard director involved in the company’s pretexting scandal. The emails between Perkins and Larry Sonsini, a corporate lawyer involved with Board of Directors decisions for many Corporations were ventually forwarded to reporters and became public.[3]

Dinh is also on the board of directors of News Corporation with Perkins and Rupert Murdoch. [4]

Department of Justice

Dinh served as Assistant Attorney General of the United States from 2001 to 2003, under the presidency of George W. Bush. He was confirmed in the Senate by a vote of 96 to 1, with the sole No vote coming from Hillary Clinton.[5] As the official responsible for federal legal policy, Dinh worked with issues of illicit drugs, racial profiling in federal law enforcement, exploitation of children, human trafficking, DNA technology, gun violence, and civil and criminal justice procedural reform. Dinh was also involved in the selection and confirmation of 100 district and 23 appellate judges in his role representing the U.S. Department of Justice. After 9/11, Dinh conducted a comprehensive review of DOJ priorities, policies and practices, and played a key role in developing the USA PATRIOT Act and revising the Attorney General’s Guidelines, which govern federal law enforcement activities and national security investigations.
Georgetown University Law Center

Dinh is Professor of Law at Georgetown University Law Center. His expertise lies in constitutional law, corporations law, and the law and economics of development. He is also currently Co-Director of the Asian Law & Policy Studies Program. He previously served as Co-Director of the Joint Program in Law and Business Administration, from 1998–99.

Personal life

His family was separated in 1975 when his father, Phong Dinh, was imprisoned in a re-education camp after the fall of Saigon. His father was being held as a political prisoner in the family’s war-ravaged homeland. He escaped in 1978, and remained a fugitive in Vietnam, when his mother, Nga Thu Nguye^~n, and his older siblings got on a boat with 85 other people and set out. For 12 days Dinh was in a broken 15-foot-long boat with no food or water as they encountered a Thai fishing crew that gave them food and gas, and helped fix the boat and pointed them toward land. When they reached Malaysia, they found only to be met by gunshots from a patrol boat; the Malaysians didn’t want them. Their boat docked but Dinh’s mother realized that the port police would force them to leave the next morning, so she sneaked back out to the boat alone that night with an axe and damaged the boat so as not to be sent back on it. After six months as refugees in Malaysia, Dinh’s family made it to Oregon in November 1978. They picked strawberries for menial wages, sending money back to Dinh’s father and a sibling hiding out in Vietnam. After Mount St. Helens erupted in 1980, the crop damage forced his family to relocate to Fullerton.

Dinh was honored by his high school alma mater when he was added to Fullerton’s wall of fame. He will share that wall with an ideological opposite, David Boies, former Vice President Al Gore’s lawyer for the Florida recount.

Dinh was reunited with his father in 1983. In 1992, he was reunited with one of his sisters at a refugee camp in Hong Kong, a meeting filmed by the newsmagazine show Dateline NBC.

Future Supreme Court nominee

Dinh was mentioned as a potential nominee to The Supreme Court of the United States in a Republican administration.[6]

The USA PATRIOT Act, commonly known as the Patriot Act , is a statute enacted by the United States Government that President George W. Bush signed into law on October 26, 2001. The contrived acronym stands for Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act of 2001 (Public Law Pub.L. 107-56).

The Act increases the ability of law enforcement agencies to search telephone, e-mail communications, medical, financial, and other records; eases restrictions on foreign intelligence gathering within the United States; expands the Secretary of the Treasury’s authority to regulate financial transactions, particularly those involving foreign individuals and entities; and enhances the discretion of law enforcement and immigration authorities in detaining and deporting immigrants suspected of terrorism-related acts. The act also expands the definition of terrorism to include domestic terrorism, thus enlarging the number of activities to which the USA PATRIOT Act’s expanded law enforcement powers can be applied.

The Act was passed by wide margins in both houses of Congress and was supported by members of both the Republican and Democratic parties. It has been criticized for weakening protections of civil liberties, as well as being overboard in regard to its circumstances of application. In particular, opponents of the law have criticized its authorization of indefinite detentions of immigrants; searches through which law enforcement officers search a home or business without the owner’s or the occupant’s permission or knowledge; the expanded use of National Security Letters, which allows the FBI to search telephone, e-mail, and financial records without a court order; and the expanded access of law enforcement agencies to business records, including library and financial records. Since its passage, several legal challenges have been brought against the act, and Federal courts have ruled that a number of provisions are unconstitutional.

Many of the act’s provisions were to sunset beginning December 31, 2005, approximately 4 years after its passage. In the months preceding the sunset date, supporters of the act pushed to make its sunsetting provisions permanent, while critics sought to revise various sections to enhance civil liberty protections. In July 2005, the U.S. Senate passed a reauthorization bill with substantial changes to several sections of the act, while the House reauthorization bill kept most of the act’s original language. The two bills were then reconciled in a conference committee that was criticized by Senators from both the Republican and Democratic parties for ignoring civil liberty concerns.[1] The bill, which removed most of the changes from the Senate version, passed Congress on March 2, 2006 and was signed into law by President George W. Bush on March 9, 2006.

Background
See also: History of the USA PATRIOT Act

The PATRIOT Act has made a number of changes to U.S. law. Key acts changed were the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978 (FISA), the Electronic Communications Privacy Act of 1986 (ECPA), the Money Laundering Control Act of 1986 and Bank Secrecy Act (BSA), as well as the Immigration and Nationality Act. The Act itself came about after the September 11 terrorist attacks on New York City and the Pentagon. After these attacks, Congress immediately started work on several proposed antiterrorist bills, before the Justice Department finally drafted a bill called the Anti-Terrorism Act of 2001. This was introduced to the House as the Provide Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism (PATRIOT) Act of 2001, and was later passed by the House as the Uniting and Strengthening America (USA) Act (H.R. 2975) on October 12.[2] It was then introduced into the Senate as the USA Act of 2002 (S. 1510) [3] where a number of amendments were proposed by Senator Russ Feingold,[4][5][6][7] all of which were passed. The final bill, the USA PATRIOT Act was introduced into the House on October 23 and incorporated H.R. 2975, S. 1510 and many of the provisions of H.R. 3004 (the Financial Anti-Terrorism Act).[8] It was vehemently opposed by only one Senator, Russ Feingold, who was the only Senator to vote against the bill. Senator Patrick Leahy also expressed some concerns.[9] However, many parts were seen as necessary by both detractors and supporters.[10][11][12] The final Act included a number of sunsets which were to expire on December 31, 2005.
Due to its controversial nature, a number of bills were proposed with which to amend the USA PATRIOT Act. These included the Protecting the Rights of Individuals Act,[13] the Benjamin Franklin True Patriot Act,[14] and the Security and Freedom Ensured Act (SAFE),[15] none of which passed. In late January 2003, the founder of the Center for Public Integrity, Charles Lewis, published a leaked draft copy of an Administration proposal titled the Domestic Security Enhancement Act of 2003.[16] This highly controversial document was quickly dubbed PATRIOT II or Son of PATRIOT by the media and organizations such as the Electronic Frontier Foundation.[17] The draft, which was circulated to 10 divisions of the Department of Justice,[18] proposed to make further extensive modifications to extend the USA PATRIOT Act.[19] It was widely condemned, although the Department of Justice claimed that it was only a draft and contained no further proposals.[20]

Titles

[edit] Titles I and X: Miscellaneous provisions
Main articles: USA PATRIOT Act, Title I and USA PATRIOT Act, Title X

Title I authorizes measures to enhance the ability of domestic security services to prevent terrorism. The title established a fund for counter-terrorist activities and increased funding for the FBI’s Technical Support Center. The military was authorized to provide assistance in some situations that involve weapons of mass destruction when so requested by the Attorney General. The National Electronic Crime Task Force was expanded, along with the President’s authority and abilities in cases of terrorism. The title also condemned the discrimination against Arab and Muslim Americans that happened soon after the September 11 terrorist attacks. The impetus for many of the provisions came from earlier bills, for instance the condemnation of discrimination was originally proposed by Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) in an amendment to the Combatting Terrorism Act of 2001, though in a different form. It originally included the prayer of Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, the Archbishop of Washington in a Mass on September 12, 2001 for our Nation and the victims in the immediate aftermath of the terrorist hijackings and attacks in New York City, Washington, D.C., and Pennsylvania reminds all Americans that ‘We must seek the guilty and not strike out against the innocent or we become like them who are without moral guidance or proper direction.'[21] Further condemnation of racial vilification and violence is also spelled out in Title X, where there was condemnation of such activities against Sikh Americans, who were mistaken for Muslims after the September 11th terrorist attack.[22]

Title X created or altered a number of miscellaneous laws that didn’t really fit into the any other section of the USA PATRIOT Act. Hazmat licenses were limited to drivers who pass background checks and who can demonstrate they can handle the materials.[23] The Inspector General of the Department of Justice was directed to appoint an official to monitor, review and report back to Congress all allegations of civil rights abuses against the DoJ.[24] It amended the definition of electronic surveillance to exclude the interception of communications done through or from a protected computer where the owner allows the interception, or is lawfully involved in an investigation.[25] Money laundering cases may now be brought in the district the money laundering was committed or where a money laundering transfer started from.[26] Aliens who committed money laundering were also prohibited from entering the U.S.[27] Grants were provided to first responders to assist them with responding to and preventing terrorism.[28] US$5,000,000 was authorized to be provided to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to train police in South and East Asia.[29] The Attorney General was directed to commission a study on the feasibility of using biometric identifiers to identify people as they attempt to enter the United States, and which would be connected to the FBI’s database to flag suspected criminals.[30] Another study was also commissioned to determine the feasibility of providing airlines names of suspected terrorists before they boarded flights.[31] The Department of Defense was given temporary authority to use their funding for private contracts for security purposes.[32] The last title also created a new Act called the Crimes Against Charitable Americans Act[33] which amended the Telemarketing and Consumer Fraud and Abuse Prevention Act to require telemarketers who call on behalf of charities to disclose the purpose and other information, including the name and mailing address of the charity the telemarketer is representing.[34] It also increased the penalties from one year imprisonment to five years imprisonment for those committing fraud by impersonating a Red Cross member.[35]

Title II: Surveillance procedures
Main article: USA PATRIOT Act, Title II

Title II is titled Enhanced Surveillance Procedures and covers all aspects of the surveillance of suspected terrorists, those suspected of engaging in computer fraud or abuse, and agents of a foreign power who are engaged in clandestine activities. It primarily made amendments to FISA and the ECPA, and many of the most controversial aspects of the USA PATRIOT Act reside in this title. In particular, the title allows government agencies to gather foreign intelligence information from both U.S. and non-U.S. citizens, and changed FISA to make gaining foreign intelligence information the significant purpose of FISA-based surveillance, where previously it had been the primary purpose.[36] The change in definition was meant to remove a legal wall between criminal investigations and surveillance for the purposes of gathering foreign intelligence, which hampered investigations when criminal and foreign surveillance overlapped.[37] However, that this wall even existed was found by the Federal Surveillance Court of Review to have actually been a long-held misinterpretation by government agencies. Also removed was the statutory requirement that the government prove a surveillance target under FISA is a non-U.S. citizen and agent of a foreign power, though it did require that any investigations must not be undertaken on citizens who are carrying out activities protected by the First Amendment.[38] The title also expanded the duration of FISA physical search and surveillance orders,[39] and gave authorities the ability to share information gathered before a federal grand jury with other agencies.[40]

The scope and availability of wiretap and surveillance orders were expanded under Title II. Wiretaps were expanded to include addressing and routing information to allow surveillance of packet switched networks[41] — EPIC objected to this, arguing that it does not take into account email or web addresses, which often contain content in the address information.[42] The Act allowed any district court judge in the United States to issue such surveillance orders[41] and search warrants for terrorism investigations.[43] Search warrants were also expanded, with the Act amending Title III of the Stored Communications Access Act to allow the FBI to gain access to stored voicemail through a search warrant, rather than through the more stringent wiretap laws.[44]

Various provisions allowed for the disclosure of electronic communications to law enforcement agencies. Those who operate or own a protected computer can give permission for authorities to intercept communications carried out on the machine, thus bypassing the requirements of the Wiretap statute.[45] The definition of a protected computer is defined in 18 U.S.C. § 1030(e)(2) and broadly encompasses those computers used in interstate or foreign commerce or communication, including ones located outside the United States. The law governing obligatory and voluntary disclosure of customer communications by cable companies was altered to allow agencies to demand such communications under U.S.C. Title 18 provisions relating to the disclosure of electronic communications (chapter 119), pen registers and trap and trace devices (chapter 206) and stored communications (121), though it excluded the disclosure of cable subscriber viewing habits.[46] Subpoenas issued to Internet Service Providers were expanded to include not only the name, address, local and long distance telephone toll billing records, telephone number or other subscriber number or identity, and length of service of a subscriber but also session times and durations, types of services used, communication device address information (e.g. IP addresses), payment method and bank account and credit card numbers.[47] Communication providers are also allowed to disclose customer records or communications if they suspect there is a danger to life and limb .[48]

Title II established three very controversial provisions: sneak and peek warrants, roving wiretaps and the ability of the FBI to gain access to documents that reveal the patterns of U.S. citizens. The so-called sneak and peek law allowed for delayed notification of the execution of search warrants. The period before which the FBI must notify the recipients of the order was unspecified in the Act — the FBI field manual says that it is a flexible standard [49] — and it may be extended at the court’s discretion.[50] These sneak and peek provisions were struck down by judge Ann Aiken on September 26, 2007 after a Portland attorney, Brandon Mayfield was wrongly jailed because of the searches. The court found the searches to violate the provision that prohibits unreasonable searches in the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.[51][52]

Roving wiretaps are wiretap orders that do not need to specify all common carriers and third parties in a surveillance court order. These are seen as important by the Department of Justice because they believe that terrorists can exploit wiretap orders by rapidly changing locations and communication devices such as cell phones,[53] while opponents see it as violating the particularity clause of the Fourth Amendment.[54][55] Another highly controversial provision is one that allows the FBI to make an order requiring the production of any tangible things (including books, records, papers, documents, and other items) for an investigation to protect against international terrorism or clandestine intelligence activities, provided that such investigation of a United States person is not conducted solely upon the basis of activities protected by the first amendment to the Constitution. [56] Though it was not targeted directly at libraries, the American Library Association (ALA), in particular, opposed this provision. In a resolution passed on June 29, 2005 they stated that Section 215 of the USA PATRIOT Act allows the government to secretly request and obtain library records for large numbers of individuals without any reason to believe they are involved in illegal activity. [57] However, the ALA’s stance did not go without criticism. One prominent critic of the ALA’s stance was the Manhattan Institute’s Heather Mac Donald, who argued in an article for the New York City Journal that [t]he furore over section 215 is a case study in Patriot Act fear-mongering. [58]

The title also covers a number of other miscellaneous provisions, including the expansion of the number of FISC judges from seven to eleven (three of which must reside within 20 miles (32 km) of the District of Columbia),[59] trade sanctions against North Korea and Taliban-controlled Afghanistan [60] and the employment of translators by the FBI.[61]

At the insistence of Republican Representative Richard Armey,[62] the Act had a number of sunset provisions built in, which were originally set to expire on December 31, 2005. The sunset provision of the Act also took into account any ongoing foreign intelligence investigations and allowed them to continue once the sections had expired.[63] The provisions that were to expire are below.

Title III: Anti-money-laundering to prevent terrorism
Main article: USA PATRIOT Act, Title III

Title III of the Act, titled International Money Laundering Abatement and Financial Anti-Terrorism Act of 2001, is intended to facilitate the prevention, detection and prosecution of international money laundering and the financing of terrorism. It primarily amends portions of the Money Laundering Control Act of 1986 (MLCA) and the Bank Secrecy Act of 1970 (BSA). It is divided into three subtitles, with the first dealing primarily with strengthening banking rules specifically against money laundering, especially on the international stage. The second attempts to improve communication between law enforcement agencies and financial institutions. This subtitle also increases record keeping and reporting requirements. The third subtitle deals with currency smuggling and counterfeiting, including quadrupling the maximum penalty for counterfeiting foreign currency, such as the Hans Vierck case of 2001.

The first subtitle tightened the record keeping requirements for financial institutions, making them record the aggregate amounts of transactions processed from areas of the world where money laundering is a concern to the U.S. government. It also made institutions put into place reasonable steps to identify beneficial owners of bank accounts and those who are authorized to use or route funds through payable-through accounts.[64] Anti-money laundering software from companies such as Lexis Nexis, coupled to databases of high risk individuals and organizations developed by companies like WorldCompliance help financial institutions perform this due diligence. The U.S. Treasury was charged with formulating regulations designed to foster information sharing between financial institutions in order to prevent money-laundering.[65] Along with expanding record keeping requirements it put new regulations into place to make it easier for authorities to identify money laundering activities and to make it harder for money launderers to mask their identities.[66] If money laundering was uncovered, the subtitle legislated for the forfeiture of assets of those suspected of doing the money laundering.[67] In an effort to encourage institutions to do their bit to reduce money laundering, the Treasury was given authority to block mergers of bank holding companies and banks with other banks and bank holding companies that had a bad history of preventing money laundering. Similarly, mergers between insured depository institutions and non-insured depository institutions that have a bad track record in combating money-laundering could be blocked.[68]

Restrictions were placed on accounts and foreign banks. Foreign shell banks that are not an affiliate of a bank that has a physical presence in the U.S. or that are not subject to supervision by a banking authority in a non-U.S. country were prohibited. The subtitle has several sections that prohibit or restrict the use of certain accounts held at financial institutions.[69] Financial institutions must now undertake steps to identify the owners of any privately owned bank outside the U.S. who have a correspondent account with them, along with the interests of each of the owners in the bank. It is expected that additional scrutiny will be applied by the U.S. institution to such banks to make sure they are not engaging in money laundering. Banks must identify all the nominal and beneficial owners of any private bank account opened and maintained in the U.S. by non-U.S. citizens. There is also an expectation that they must undertake enhanced scrutiny of the account if it is owned by, or is being maintained on behalf of, any senior political figure where there is reasonable suspicion of corruption.[70] Any deposits made from within the U.S. into foreign banks are now deemed to have been deposited into any interbank account the foreign bank may have in the U.S. Thus any restraining order, seizure warrant or arrest warrant may be made against the funds in the interbank account held at a U.S. financial institution, up to the amount deposited in the account at the foreign bank.[71] Restrictions were placed on the use of internal bank concentration accounts because such accounts do not provide an effective audit trail for transactions, and this may be used to facilitate money laundering. Financial institutions are prohibited from allowing clients to specifically direct them to move funds into, out of, or through a concentration account, and they are also prohibited from informing their clients about the existence of such accounts. Financial institutions are not allowed to provide any information to clients that may identify such internal accounts.[72] Financial institutions are required to document and follow methods of identifying where the funds are for each customer in a concentration account that co-mingles funds belonging to one or more customers.
The definition of money laundering was expanded to include making a financial transaction in the U.S. in order to commit a crime of violence;[73] the bribery of public officials and fraudulent dealing with public funds; the smuggling or illegal export of controlled munitions[74] and the importation or bringing in of any firearm or ammunition not authorised by the U.S. Attorney General[75] and the smuggling of any item controlled under the Export Administration Regulations.[76][77] It also includes any offense where the U.S. would be obligated under a mutual treaty with a foreign nation to extradite a person, or where the U.S. would need to submit a case against a person for prosecution due to the treaty; the import of falsely classified goods;[78] computer crime;[79] and any felony violation of the Foreign Agents Registration Act of 1938.[77] It also allows the forfeiture of any property within the jurisdiction of the United States that was gained as the result of an offense against a foreign nation that involves the manufacture, importation, sale, or distribution of a controlled substance.[80] Foreign nations may now seek to have a forfeiture or judgement notification enforced by a district court of the United States.[81] This is done through new legislation that specifies how the U.S. government may apply for a restraining order[82] to preserve the availability of property which is subject to a foreign forfeiture or confiscation judgement.[83] In taking into consideration such an application, emphasis is placed on the ability of a foreign court to follow due process.[81] The Act also requires the Secretary of Treasury to take all reasonable steps to encourage foreign governments make it a requirement to include the name of the originator in wire transfer instructions sent to the United States and other countries, with the information to remain with the transfer from its origination until the point of disbursement.[84] The Secretary was also ordered to encourage international cooperation in investigations of money laundering, financial crimes, and the finances of terrorist groups.[85]

The Act also introduced criminal penalties for corrupt officialdom. An official or employee of the government who acts corruptly — as well as the person who induces the corrupt act — in the carrying out of their official duties will be fined by an amount that is not more than three times the monetary equivalent of the bribe in question. Alternatively they may be imprisoned for not more than 15 years, or they may be fined and imprisoned. Penalties apply to financial institutions who do not comply with an order to terminate any corresponding accounts within 10 days of being so ordered by the Attorney General or the Secretary of Treasury. The financial institution can be fined $US10,000 for each day the account remains open after the 10 day limit has expired.[71]

The second subtitle made a number of modifications to the BSA in an attempt to make it harder for money launderers to operate and easier for law enforcement and regulatory agencies to police money laundering operations. One amendment made to the BSA was to allow the designated officer or agency who receives suspicious activity reports to notify U.S. intelligence agencies.[86] A number of amendments were made to address issues related to record keeping and financial reporting. One measure was a new requirement that anyone who does business file a report for any coin and foreign currency receipts that are over US$10,000 and made it illegal to structure transactions in a manner that evades the BSA’s reporting requirements.[87] To make it easier for authorities to regulate and investigate anti-money laundering operations Money Services Businesses (MSBs) — those who operate informal value transfer systems outside of the mainstream financial system — were included in the definition of a financial institution.[88] The BSA was amended to make it mandatory to report suspicious transactions and an attempt was made to make such reporting easier for financial institutions.[89] FinCEN was made a bureau of the United States Department of Treasury[90] and the creation of a secure network to be used by financial institutions to report suspicious transactions and to provide alerts of relevant suspicious activities was ordered.[91] Along with these reporting requirements, a considerable number of provisions relate to the prevention and prosecution of money-laundering.[92] Financial institutions were ordered to establish anti-money laundering programs and the BSA was amended to better define anti-money laundering strategy.[93] Also increased were civil and criminal penalties for money laundering and the introduction of penalties for violations of geographic targeting orders and certain record-keeping requirements.[94] A number of other amendments to the BSA were made through subtitle B, including granting the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System power to authorize personnel to act as law enforcement officers to protect the premises, grounds, property and personnel of any U.S. Federal reserve bank and allowing the Board to delegate this authority to U.S. Federal reserve banks.[95] Another measure instructed United States Executive Directors of international financial institutions to use their voice and vote to support any country that has taken action to support the U.S.’s War on Terrorism. Executive Directors are now required to provide ongoing auditing of disbursements made from their institutions to ensure that no funds are paid to persons who commit, threaten to commit, or support terrorism.[96]

The third subtitle deals with currency crimes. Largely due to the effectiveness of the BSA, money launders had been avoiding traditional financial institutions to launder money and were using cash-based businesses to avoid them. A new effort was made to stop the laundering of money through bulk currency movements, mainly focusing on the confiscation of criminal proceeds and the increase in penalties for money laundering. Congress found that a criminal offense of merely evading the reporting of money transfers was insufficient and decided that it would be better if the smuggling of the bulk currency itself was the offense. Therefore, the BSA was amended to make it a criminal offense to evade currency reporting by concealing more than US$10,000 on any person or through any luggage, merchandise or other container that moves into or out of the U.S. The penalty for such an offense is up to 5 years imprisonment and the forfeiture of any property up to the amount that was being smuggled.[97] It also made the civil and criminal penalty violations of currency reporting cases[98] be the forfeiture of all a defendant’s property that was involved in the offense, and any property traceable to the defendant.[99] The Act prohibits and penalizes those who run unlicensed money transmitting businesses.[100] In 2005, this provision of the USA PATRIOT Act was used to prosecute Yehuda Abraham for helping to arrange money transfers for British arms dealer Hermant Lakhani, who was arrested in August 2003 after being caught in a government sting. Lakhani had tried to sell a missile to an FBI agent posing as a Somali militant.[101] The definition of counterfeiting was expanded to encompass analog, digital or electronic image reproductions, and it was made an offense to own such a reproduction device. Penalties were increased to 20 years imprisonment.[102] Money laundering unlawful activities was expanded to include the provision of material support or resources to designated foreign terrorist organizations.[103] The Act specifies that anyone who commits or conspires to undertake a fraudulent activity outside the jurisdiction of the United States, and which would be an offense in the U.S., will be prosecuted under 18 U.S.C. § 1029, which deals with fraud and related activity in connection with access devices.[104]
Title IV: Border security
Main article: USA PATRIOT Act, Title IV

Title IV amends the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 to give more law enforcement and investigative power to the United States Attorney General and to the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS). The Attorney General was authorized to waive any cap on the number of full time employees (FTEs) assigned to the INS on the Northern border of the United States.[105] Enough funds were set aside to triple the maximum number of Border Patrol personnel, Customs Service personnel and INS inspectors along with an additional US$50,000,000 funding for the INS and the U.S. Customs Service to improve technology for monitoring the Northern Border and acquiring additional equipment at the Canadian northern border.[106] The INS was also given the authority to authorise overtime payments of up to an extra US$30,000 a year to INS employees.[107] Access was given to the Department of State and the INS to criminal background information contained in the National Crime Information Center’s Interstate Identification Index (NCIC-III), Wanted Persons File and any other files maintained by the National Crime Information Center in order to determine whether visa applicants and applicants could be admitted to the U.S.[108] The Department of State was required to form final regulations governing the procedures for taking fingerprints and the conditions with which the department was allowed to use this information.[109] Additionally, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) was ordered to develop a technology standard to verify the identity of persons applying for a United States visa.[109] The reason was to make the standard the technology basis for a cross-agency, cross-platform electronic system used for conducting background checks, confirming identities and ensuring that people have not received visas under different names.[110] This report was released on November 13, 2002,[111] however, according to NIST, this was later determined that the fingerprint system used was not as accurate as current state-of-the-art fingerprint systems and is approximately equivalent to commercial fingerprint systems available in 1998. [112] This report was later superseded by section 303(a) of the Enhanced Border Security and Visa Entry Reform Act of 2002.

Under subtitle B, various definitions relating to terrorism were altered and expanded. The INA was retroactively amended to disallow aliens who are part of or representatives of a foreign organization or any group who endorses acts of terrorism from entering the U.S. This restriction also included the family of such aliens.[113] The definition of terrorist activity was strengthened to include actions involving the use of any dangerous device (and not just explosives and firearms).[113] To engage in terrorist activity is defined as committing, inciting to commit or planning and preparing to undertake an act of terrorism. Included in this definition is the gathering of intelligence information on potential terrorist targets, the solicitation of funds for a terrorist organisation or the solicitation of others to undertake acts of terrorism. Those who provide knowing assistance to a person who is planning to perform such activities are defined as undertaking terrorist activities. Such assistance includes affording material support, including a safe house, transportation, communications, funds, transfer of funds or other material financial benefit, false documentation or identification, weapons (including chemical, biological, or radiological weapons), explosives, or training to perform the terrorist act.[113] The INA criteria for making a decision to designate an organisation as a terrorist organisation was amended to include the definition of a terrorist act.[114] Though the amendments to these definitions are retroactive, it does not mean that it can be applied to members who joined an organisation, but since left, before it was designated to be a terrorist organisation under 8 U.S.C. § 1189 by the Secretary of State.[113]

The Act amended the INA to add new provisions enforcing mandatory detention laws. These apply to any alien who is engaged in terrorism, or who is engaged in an activity that endangers U.S. national security. It also applies to those who are inadmissible or who must be deported because it is certified they are attempting to enter in order to undertake illegal espionage, are exporting goods, technology or sensitive information illegally or are attempting to control or overthrow the government, or have, or will have, engaged in terrorist activities.[115] The Attorney General or the Attorney General’s deputy may maintain custody of such aliens until they are removed from the U.S., unless it is no longer deemed they should be removed, in which case they are released. The alien can be detained for up to 90 days but can be held up to six months after it is deemed that they are a national security threat. However, removal proceedings or an arrest must be made no longer than seven days after the alien’s detention, otherwise the alien will be released. However, such detentions must be reviewed every six months by the Attorney General, who can then decide to revoke it, unless prevented from doing so by law. Every six months the alien may apply, in writing, for the certification to be reconsidered.[115] Judicial review of any action or decision relating to this section, including judicial review of the merits of a certification, can be held under habeas corpus proceedings. Such proceedings can be initiated by an application filed with the United States Supreme Court, by any justice of the Supreme Court, by any circuit judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, or by any district court otherwise having jurisdiction to entertain the application. The final order is subject to appeal to the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.[115] Provisions were also made for a report to be required every six months of such decisions from the U.S. Attorney General to the Committee on the Judiciary of the House of Representatives and the Committee on the Judiciary of the Senate.[115]

A sense of Congress was given that the U.S. Secretary of State should expedite the full implementation of the integrated entry and exit data system for airports, seaports, and land border ports of entry specified in the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996 (IIRIRA). They also found that the U.S. Attorney General should immediately start the Integrated Entry and Exit Data System Task Force specified in section 3 of the Immigration and Naturalization Service Data Management Improvement Act of 2000. Congress wanted the primary focus of development of the entry-exit data system was to be on the utilization of biometric technology and the development of tamper-resistant documents readable at ports of entry. They also wanted the system to be able to interface with existing law enforcement databases.[116] The Attorney General was ordered to implement and expand the foreign student monitoring program that was established under section 641(a) of the IIRIRA.[117] which records the date and port of entry of each foreign student. The program was expanded to include other approved educational institutions, including air flight schools, language training schools or vocational schools that are approved by the Attorney General, in consultation with the Secretary of Education and the Secretary of State. US$36,800,000 was appropriated for the Department of Justice to spend on implementing the program.[118]

The Secretary of State was ordered to audit and report back to Congress on the Visa waiver program specified under 8 U.S.C. § 1187 for each fiscal year until September 30, 2007. The Secretary was also ordered to check for the implementation of precautionary measures to prevent the counterfeiting and theft of passports as well as ascertain that countries designated under the visa waiver program have established a program to develop tamper-resistant passports.[119] The Secretary was also ordered to report back to Congress on whether consulate shopping was a problem.[120]

The last subtitle, which was introduced by Senators John Conyers and Patrick Leahy, allows for the preservation of immigration benefits for victims of terrorism, and the families of victims of terrorism.[121] They recognised that some families, through no fault of their own, would either be ineligible for permanent residence in the United States due to being unable to make important deadlines because of the September 11 terrorist attacks, or had become ineligible to apply for special immigration status because their loved one died in the attacks.[122]

It allows the U.S. Attorney General to pay rewards pursuant of advertisements for assistance to the Department of Justice to combat terrorism and prevent terrorist acts, though amounts over $US250,000 may not be made or offered without the personal approval of the Attorney General or President, and once the award is approved the Attorney General must give written notice to the Chairman and ranking minority members of the Committee on Appropriations and the Judiciary of the Senate and of the House of Representatives.[123] The State Department Basic Authorities Act of 1956 was amended to allow the Department of State to offer rewards, in consultation with the Attorney General, for the full or significant dismantling of any terrorist organisation[124] and to identify any key leaders of terrorist organisations.[125] The Secretary of State was given authority to pay greater than $US5 million if he so determines it would prevent terrorist actions against the United States and Canada.[126] The DNA Analysis Backlog Elimination Act was amended to include terrorism or crimes of violence in the list of qualifying Federal offenses.[127] Another perceived obstacle was to allow Federal agencies to share information with Federal law enforcement agencies. Thus, the act now allows Federal officers who acquire information through electronic surveillance or physical searches to consult with Federal law enforcement officers to coordinate efforts to investigate or protect against potential or actual attacks, sabotage or international terrorism or clandestine intelligence activities by an intelligence service or network of a foreign power.[128]

Secret Service jurisdiction was extended to investigate computer fraud, access device frauds, false identification documents or devices, or any fraudulent activities against U.S. financial institutions.[129] The General Education Provisions Act was amended to allow the U.S. Attorney General or Assistant Attorney General to collect and retain educational records relevant to an authorized investigation or prosecution of an offense that is defined as a Federal crime of terrorism and which an educational agency or institution possesses. The Attorney General or Assistant Attorney General must certify that there are specific and articulable facts giving reason to believe that the education records are likely to contain information [that a Federal crime of terrorism may be being committed]. An education institution that produces education records in response to such a request is given legal immunity from any liability that rises from such a production of records.[130]
One of the most controversial aspects of the USA PATRIOT Act is in title V, and relates to National Security Letters (NSLs). An NSL is a form of administrative subpoena used by the FBI, and reportedly by other U.S. government agencies including the CIA and the Department of Defense (DoD). It is a demand letter issued to a particular entity or organization to turn over various records and data pertaining to individuals. They require no probable cause or judicial oversight and also contain a gag order, preventing the recipient of the letter from disclosing that the letter was ever issued. Title V allowed the use of NSLs to be made by a Special Agent in charge of a Bureau field office, where previously only the Director or the Deputy Assistant Director of the FBI were able to certify such requests.[131] This provision of the Act was challenged by the ACLU on behalf of an unknown party against the U.S. government on the grounds that NSLs violate the First and Fourth Amendments of the U.S. Constitution because there is no way to legally oppose an NSL subpoena in court, and that it was unconstitutional to not allow a client to inform their Attorney as to the order due to the gag provision of the letters. The court’s judgement found in favour of the ACLU’s case, and they declared the law unconstitutional.[132] Later, the USA PATRIOT Act was reauthorized and amendments were made to specify a process of judicial review of NSLs and to allow the recipient of an NSL to disclose receipt of the letter to an attorney or others necessary to comply with or challenge the order.[133] However, in 2007 the U.S. District Court struck down even the reauthorized NSLs because the gag power was unconstitutional as courts could still not engage in meaningful judicial review of these gags.

Title VI: Victims and families of victims of terrorism
Main article: USA PATRIOT Act, Title VI

Title VI made amendments to the Victims of Crime Act of 1984 (VOCA) in order to make changes to how the U.S. Victims of Crime Fund was managed and funded. Changes were made to VOCA to improve the speedy provision of aid to families of public safety officers by expedited payments to officers or the families of officers. Under the changes, payments must be made no less than 30 days after the officer is injured or killed in the line of duty.[134] The Assistant Attorney General was given expanded authority under section 614 of the USA PATRIOT Act to make grants to any organisation that administers any Office of Justice Programs, which includes the Public Safety Officers Benefits Program.[135] Further changes to the Victims of Crime Fund increased the amount of money in the Fund, and changed the way that funds were distributed.[136] The amount available for grants made through the Crime Victim Fund to eligible crime victim compensation programs were increased from 40 percent to 60 percent of the total in the Fund. A program can provide compensation to U.S. citizens who were adversely affected overseas. Means testing was also waived for those who apply for compensation.[137] Under VOCA, the Director may make an annual grant from the Crime Victims Fund to support crime victim assistance programs. An amendment was made to VOCA to include offers of assistance to crime victims in the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the United States Virgin Islands, and any other U.S. territory.[138] VOCA also provides for compensation and assistance to victims of terrorism or mass violence.[139] This was amended to allow the Director to make supplemental grants to States for eligible crime victim compensation and assistance programs, and to victim service organizations, public agencies (including Federal, State, or local governments) and non-governmental organizations that provide assistance to victims of crime. The funds could be used to provide emergency relief, including crisis response efforts, assistance, compensation, training and technical assistance for investigations and prosecutions of terrorism.[140]

Title VIII: Terrorism criminal law
Main article: USA PATRIOT Act, Title VIII

Title VIII alters the definitions of terrorism, and establishes or re-defines rules with which to deal with it. It redefined the term domestic terrorism to broadly include mass destruction as well as assassination or kidnapping as a terrorist activity. The definition also encompasses activities that are dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State and are intended to intimidate or coerce a civilian population, influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion, or are undertaken to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping while in the jurisdiction of the United States.[141] Terrorism is also included in the definition of racketeering.[142] Terms relating to cyber-terrorism are also redefined, including the term protected computer, damage, conviction, person, and loss. [143]

New penalties were created to convict those who attack mass transportation systems. If the offender committed such an attack while no passenger was on board, they are fined and imprisoned for a maximum of 20 years. However, if the activity was undertaken while the mass transportation vehicle or ferry was carrying a passenger at the time of the offense, or the offense resulted in the death of any person, then the punishment is a fine and life imprisonment.[144] The title amends the biological weapons statute to define the use of a biological agent, toxin, or delivery system as a weapon, other than when it is used for prophylactic, protective, bona fide research, or other peaceful purposes. Penalties for anyone who cannot prove reasonably that they are using a biological agent, toxin or delivery system for these purposes are 10 years imprisonment, a fine or both.[145]

A number of measures were introduced in an attempt to prevent and penalize activities that are deemed to support terrorism. It was made a crime to harbor or conceal terrorists, and those who do are subject to a fine or imprisonment of up to 10 years, or both.[146] U.S. forfeiture law was also amended to allow authorities to seize all foreign and domestic assets from any group or individual that is caught planning to commit acts of terrorism against the U.S. or U.S. citizens. Assets may also be seized if they have been acquired or maintained by an individual or organisation for the purposes of further terrorist activities.[147] One section of the Act (section 805) prohibited material support for terrorists, and in particular included expert advice or assistance. [148] This was struck down as unconstitutional by the U.S. Federal Court after the Humanitarian Law Project filed a civil action against the U.S. government. The court found that it violated the First and Fifth Amendments to the United States Constitution and the provision was so vague it would cause a person of average intelligence to have to guess whether they were breaking the law, thus leading to a potential situation where a person was charged for an offense that they had no way of knowing was illegal. The court found that this could potentially have the effect of allowing arbitrary and discriminatory enforcement of the law, as well as possible chilling effects on First Amendment rights.[149][150] Congress later improved the law by defining the definitions of the material support or resources, training, and expert advise or resources. [151]

Cyberterrorism was dealt with in various ways. Penalties apply to those who either damage or gain unauthorized access to a protected computer and then commit a number of offenses. These offenses include causing a person to lose an aggregate amount greater than US$5,000, as well as adversely affecting someone’s medical examination, diagnosis or treatment. It also encompasses actions that cause a person to be injured, a threat to public health or safety, or damage to a governmental computer that is used as a tool to administer justice, national defense or national security. Also prohibited was extortion undertaken via a protected computer. The penalty for attempting to damage protected computers through the use of viruses or other software mechanism was set to imprisonment for up to 10 years, while the penalty for unauthorized access and subsequent damage to a protected computer was increased to more than five years imprisonment. However, should the offense occur a second time, the penalty increases up to 20 years imprisonment.[152] The act also specified the development and support of cybersecurity forensic capabilities. It directs the Attorney General to establish regional computer forensic laboratories that have the capability of performing forensic examinations of intercepted computer evidence relating to criminal activity and cyberterrorism, and that have the capability of training and educating Federal, State, and local law enforcement personnel and prosecutors in computer crime, and to facilitate and promote the sharing of Federal law enforcement expertise and information about the investigation, analysis, and prosecution of computer-related crime with State and local law enforcement personnel and prosecutors, including the use of multijurisdictional task forces. The sum of $50,000,000 was authorized for establishing such labs.[153]

Title IX: Improved Intelligence
Main article: USA PATRIOT Act, Title IX

Title IX amends the National Security Act of 1947 to require the Director of Central Intelligence (DCI) to establish requirements and priorities for foreign intelligence collected under FISA and to provide assistance to the United States Attorney General to ensure that information derived from electronic surveillance or physical searches is disseminated for efficient and effective foreign intelligence purposes.[154] With the exception of information that might jeopardize an ongoing law enforcement investigation, it was made a requirement that the Attorney General, or the head of any other department or agency of the Federal Government with law enforcement responsibilities, disclose to the Director any foreign intelligence acquired by the U.S. Department of Justice. The Attorney General and Director of Central Intelligence were directed to develop procedures for the Attorney General to follow in order to inform the Director, in a timely manner, of any intention of investigating criminal activity of a foreign intelligence source or potential foreign intelligence source based on the intelligence tip-off of a member of the intelligence community. The Attorney General was also directed to develop procedures on how to best administer these matters.[155] International terrorist activities were made to fall within the scope of foreign intelligence under the National Security Act.[156]

A number of reports were commissioned relating to various intelligence-related government centers. One was commissioned into the best way of setting up the National Virtual Translation Center, with the goal of developing automated translation facilities to assist with the timely and accurate translation of foreign intelligence information for elements of the U.S. intelligence community.[157] The USA PATRIOT Act required this to be provided on February 1, 2002, however the report, entitled Director of Central Intelligence Report on the National Virtual Translation Center: A Concept Plan to Enhance the Intelligence Community’s Foreign Language Capabilities, April 29, 2002 was received more than two months late, which the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence reported was a delay which, in addition to contravening the explicit words of the statute, deprived the Committee of timely and valuable input into its efforts to craft this legislation. [158] Another report was commissioned on the feasibility and desirability of reconfiguring the Foreign Terrorist Asset Tracking Center and the Office of Foreign Assets Control of the Department of the Treasury.[159] It was due by February 1, 2002 however, it was never written. The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence later complained that [t]he Director of Central Intelligence and the Secretary of the Treasury failed to provide a report, this time in direct contravention of a section of the USA PATRIOT Act and they further directed that the statutorily-directed report be completed immediately, and that it should include a section describing the circumstances which led to the Director’s failure to comply with lawful reporting requirements. [160]

Other measures allowed certain reports on intelligence and intelligence-related matters to be deferred until either February 1, 2002 or a date after February 1, 2002 if the official involved certified that preparation and submission on February 1, 2002, would impede the work of officers or employees engaged in counterterrorism activities. Any such deferral required congressional notification before it was authorized.[161] The Attorney General was charged with training officials in identifying and utilizing foreign intelligence information properly in the course of their duties. The government officials include those in the Federal Government who do not normally encounter or disseminate foreign intelligence in the performance of their duties, and State and local government officials who encounter, or potentially may encounter in the course of a terrorist event, foreign intelligence in the performance of their duties.[162] A sense of Congress was expressed that officers and employees of the intelligence community should be encouraged to make every effort to establish and maintain intelligence relationships with any person, entity, or group while they conduct lawful intelligence activities.[156]

Reauthorizations

The USA PATRIOT Act was reauthorized by two bills. The first, the USA PATRIOT and Terrorism Prevention Reauthorization Act of 2005, was passed by both houses of Congress in July 2005. This bill reauthorized provisions of the USA PATRIOT Act and the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004. It created new provisions relating to the death penalty for terrorists,[163] enhancing security at seaports,[164] new measures to combat the financing of terrorism,[165] new powers for the Secret Service,[166] anti-Methamphetamine initiatives[167] and a number of other miscellaneous provisions. The second reauthorization act, the USA PATRIOT Act Additional Reauthorizing Amendments Act of 2006, amended the first and was passed in February 2006.

The first act reauthorized all but two of the provisions of Title II that would have expired. Two sections were changed to sunset on December 31, 2009: section 206 — the roving wiretap provision — and section 215, which allowed access to business records under FISA. Section 215 was amended further regardless so as to give greater judicial oversight and review. Such orders were also restricted to be authorized by only the FBI Director, the FBI Deputy Director, or the Executive Assistant Director for National Security, and minimization procedures were specified to limit the dissemination and collection of such information. Section 215 also had a gag provision, which was changed to allow the defendant to contact their Attorney.[168] However, the change also meant that the defendant was also made to tell the FBI who they were disclosing the order to — this requirement was removed by the USA PATRIOT Act Additional Reauthorizing Amendments Act.[169]

As NSL provisions of the USA PATRIOT Act had been struck by the courts,[132] the reauthorization Act amended the law in an attempt to make them lawful. It provided for judicial review and the legal right of a recipient to challenge the validity of the letter. The reauthorization act still allowed NSLs to be closed and all evidence to be presented in camera and ex parte.[170] Gag provisions were maintained, but were not automatic. They only occurred when the Deputy Assistant Director of the FBI or a Special Agent in Charge in a Bureau field office certified that disclosure would result in a danger to the national security of the United States, interference with a criminal, counterterrorism, or counterintelligence investigation, interference with diplomatic relations, or danger to the life or physical safety of any person .[171] However, should there be no non-disclosure order, the defendant can disclose the fact of the NSL to anyone who can render them assistance in carrying out the letter, or to an attorney for legal advise. Again, however, the recipient was order to inform the FBI of such a disclosure.[171] Due to the concern over the chilling effects of such a requirement, the Additional Reauthorization Amendments Act removed the requirement to inform the FBI that the recipient spoke about the NSL to their Attorney.[172] Later, the Additional Reauthorization Amendments Act excluded libraries from receiving NSLs, except where they provide electronic communications services.[173] The reauthorization Act also ordered the Attorney General submit a report semi-annually to the House and Senate Judiciary Committees, the House and Senate Intelligence Committees and the House Committee on Financial Services and the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs on all NSL requests made under the Fair Credit Reporting Act.[174]

Changes were made to the roving wiretap provisions of the USA PATRIOT Act. Applications and orders for such wiretaps must describe the specific target of the electronic surveillance if the identity of the target is not known. If the nature and location of each of the facilities or places targeted for surveillance is not known, then after 10 days the agency must provide notice to the court. The notice must include the nature and location of each new facility or place at which the electronic surveillance was directed. It must also describe the facts and circumstances relied upon by the applicant to justify the applicant’s belief that each new surveillance place or facility under surveillance is or was being used by the target of the surveillance. The applicant must also provide a statement detailing any proposed minimization procedures that differ from those contained in the original application or order, that may be necessitated by a change in the facility or place at which the electronic surveillance is directed. Applicants must detail the total number of electronic surveillances that have been or are being conducted under the authority of the order.[175]

Section 213 of the USA PATRIOT Act was modified. Previously it stated that delayed notifications would be made to recipients of sneak and peek searches in a reasonable period . This was seen as unreasonable, as it was undefined and could potentially be used indefinitely. Thus, the reauthorization act changed this to a period not exceeding 30 days after the date of the execution of the search warrant. Courts were given the opportunity to extend this period if they were provided good cause to do so. Section 213 states that delayed notifications could be issued if there is reasonable cause to believe that providing immediate notification of the execution of the warrant may have an adverse result . This was criticised, particularly by the ACLU, for allowing potential abuse by law enforcement agencies[176] and was later amended to prevent a delayed notification if the adverse results consist only of unduly delaying a trial. [177]

The reauthorization act also legislates increased congressional oversight for emergency disclosures by communication providers undertaken under section 212 of the USA PATRIOT Act.[178] The duration of FISA surveillance and physical search orders were increased. Surveillance performed against lone wolf terrorists under section 207 of the USA PATRIOT Act were increased to 120 days for an initial order, while pen registers and trap and trace device extensions under FISA were increased from 90 days to a year. The reauthorization act also increased congressional oversight, requiring a semi-annual report into physical searches and the use of pen registers and trap and trace devices under FISA.[179] The lone wolf terrorist provision (Section 207) was a sunset provision that also was to have expired, however this was enhanced by the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004. The reauthorization act extended the expiration date to December 31, 2009.[180] The amendment to material support law done in the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act[151] was also made permanent.[181] The definition of terrorism was further expanded to include receiving military-type training from a foreign terrorist organization and narcoterrorism.[182] Other provisions of the reauthorization act was to merge the law outlawing train wrecking (18 U.S.C. § 992) and the law outlawing attacks on mass transportation systems (18 U.S.C. § 1993) into a new section of Title 18 of the U.S. Code (18 U.S.C. § 1992) and also to criminalize the act of planning a terrorist attack against a mass transport system.[183][184] Forfeiture law was further changed and now assets within U.S. jurisdiction will be seized for illegally trafficking in nuclear, chemical, biological or radiological weapons technology or material, if such offense is punishable under foreign law by death or imprisonment for a term exceeding one year. Alternatively, this applies if similar punishment would be so punishable if committed within the U.S.[185] A sense of Congress was further expressed that victims of terrorism should be entitled to the forfeited assets of terrorists.[186]

Controversy
Main article: Controversial invocations of the USA PATRIOT Act

The USA PATRIOT Act has generated a great deal of controversy since its enactment. Opponents[who?] of the Act have been quite vocal in asserting that it was passed opportunistically after the September 11 terrorist attacks, believing there to have been little debate. They view the Act as one that was hurried through the Senate with little change before it was passed. (Senators Patrick Leahy and Russell Feingold proposed amendments to modify the final revision.)[187][188][9] The sheer magnitude of the Act itself was noted by liberal activist Michael Moore in his controversial film Fahrenheit 9/11. In one of the scenes of the movie, he records Congressman Jim McDermott alleging that no Senator read the bill[189] and John Conyers, Jr. as saying We don’t really read most of the bills. Do you know what that would entail if we read every bill that we passed? Congressman Conyers then answers his own rhetorical question, asserting that if they did it would slow down the legislative process .[190] As a dramatic device, Moore then hired an ice-cream van and drove around Washington, D.C. with a loud speaker, reading out the Act to puzzled passers-by, which included a few Senators.[191] However, Moore was not the only commentator to notice that not many people had read the Act. Dahlia Lithwick and Julia Turne for Slate asked How bad is Patriot, anyway? . They decided that it was Hard to tell , and that The ACLU, in a new fact sheet challenging the DOJ Web site, wants you to believe that the act threatens our most basic civil liberties. Ashcroft and his roadies call the changes in law modest and incremental. Since almost nobody has read the legislation, much of what we think we know about it comes third-hand and spun. Both advocates and opponents are guilty of fear-mongering and distortion in some instances. [192] Some television shows as NCIS, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Las Vegas have been keen to use the USA PATRIOT Act as a plot device, often for purposes it was not intended.[193][194]

EPIC have criticized the law as unconstitutional, especially when the private communications of law-abiding American citizens might be intercepted incidentally ,[195] while the EFF hold that the lower standard applied to wiretaps gives the FBI a ‘blank check’ to violate the communications privacy of countless innocent Americans .[196] Others do not find the roving wiretap legislation to be as concerning. Professor David D. Cole of the Georgetown University Law Center, a critic of many of the provisions of the Act, found that though they come at a cost to privacy are a sensible measure[197] while Paul Rosenzweig, a Senior Legal Research Fellow in the Center for Legal and Judicial Studies at the Heritage Foundation, argues that roving wiretaps are just a response to rapidly changing communication technology that is not necessarily fixed to a specific location or device.[198]

The Act also allows access to voicemail through a search warrant rather than through a title III wiretap order.[199] James Dempsey, of the CDT, believes that it unnecessarily overlooks the importance of notice under the Fourth Amendment and under a Title III wiretap,[200] and the EFF criticizes the provision’s lack of notice. However, the EFF’s criticism is more extensive — they believe that the amendment is in possible violation of the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution because previously if the FBI listened to voicemail illegally, it couldn’t use the messages in evidence against the defendant.[201] Others disagree with these assessments. Professor Orin Kerr, of the George Washington University school of law, believes that the ECPA adopted a rather strange rule to regulate voicemail stored with service providers because under ECPA, if the government knew that there was one copy of an unopened private message in a person’s bedroom and another copy on their remotely stored voicemail, it was illegal for the FBI to simply obtain the voicemail; the law actually compelled the police to invade the home and rifle through peoples’ bedrooms so as not to disturb the more private voicemail. In Professor Kerr’s opinion, this made little sense and the amendment that was made by the USA PATRIOT Act was reasonable and sensible.[202]

The USA PATRIOT Act’s expansion of court jurisdiction to allow the nationwide service of search warrants proved controversial for the EFF.[203] They believe that agencies will be able to ‘shop’ for judges that have demonstrated a strong bias toward law enforcement with regard to search warrants, using only those judges least likely to say no—even if the warrant doesn’t satisfy the strict requirements of the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution ,[204] and that it reduces the likelihood that smaller ISPs or phone companies will try to protect the privacy of their clients by challenging the warrant in court — their reasoning is that a small San Francisco ISP served with such a warrant is unlikely to have the resources to appear before the New York court that issued it. [204] They believe that this is bad because only the communications provider will be able to challenge the warrant as only they will know about it—many warrants are issued ex parte, which means that the target of the order is not present when the order is issued.[204]

For a time, the USA PATRIOT Act allowed for agents to undertake sneak and peek searches.[50] Critics such as EPIC and the ACLU strongly criticized the law for violating the Fourth Amendment,[205] with the ACLU going so far as to release an advertisement condemning it and calling for it to be repealed.[206][207] However supporters of the amendment, such as Heather Mac Donald, a fellow at the Manhattan Institute and contributing editor to the New York City Journal, expressed the belief that it was necessary because the temporary delay in notification of a search order stops terrorists from tipping off counterparts who are being investigated.[208] In 2004, FBI agents used this provision to search and secretly examine the home of Brandon Mayfield, who was wrongfully jailed for two weeks on suspicion of involvement in the Madrid train bombings. While the U.S. Government did publicly apologize to Mayfield and his family,[209] Mayfield took it further through the courts. On September 26, 2007, judge Ann Aiken found the law was, in fact, unconstitutional as the search was an unreasonable imposition on Mayfield and thus violated the Fourth Amendment.[51][52]

Laws governing the material support of terrorism proved contentious. It was criticized by the EFF for infringement of freedom of association. The EFF argues that had this law been enacted during Apartheid, U.S. citizens would not have been able to support the African National Congress (ANC) as the EFF believe the ANC would have been classed as a terrorist organisation. They also used the example of a humanitarian social worker being unable to train Hamas members how to care for civilian children orphaned in the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians, a lawyer being unable to teach IRA members about international law, and peace workers being unable to offer training in effective peace negotiations or how to petition the United Nations regarding human rights abuses.[210] Another group, the Humanitarian Law Project, also objected to the provision prohibiting expert advise and assistance to terrorists and filed a suit against the U.S. government to have it declared unconstitutional. They succeeded, and a Federal Court found that the law was vague enough to cause a reasonable person to guess whether they were breaking the law or not. Thus they found it violated the First Amendment rights of U.S. citizens, and struck it down.[149][150]

Perhaps one of the biggest controversies involved the use of NSLs by the FBI. Because they allow the FBI to search telephone, email, and financial records without a court order they were criticized by many parties.[211][212][213][214] In November 2005, BusinessWeek reported that the FBI had issued tens of thousands of NSLs and had obtained one million financial, credit, employment, and in some cases, health records from the customers of targeted Las Vegas businesses. Selected businesses included casinos, storage warehouses and car rental agencies. An anonymous Justice official claimed that such requests were permitted under section 505 of the USA PATRIOT Act and despite the volume of requests insisted We are not inclined to ask courts to endorse fishing expeditions .[215] Before this was revealed, however, the ACLU challenged the constitutionality of NSLs in court. In April 2004, they filed suit against the government on behalf of an unknown Internet Service Provider who had been issued an NSL, for reasons unknown. In ACLU v. DoJ, the ACLU argued that the NSL violated the First and Fourth Amendments of the U.S. Constitution because the USA PATRIOT Act failed to spell out any legal process whereby a telephone or Internet company could try to oppose an NSL subpoena in court. The court agreed, and found that because the recipient of the subpoena could not challenge it in court it was unconstitutional.[132] Congress later tried to remedy this in a reauthorization Act, but because they did not remove the non-disclosure provision a Federal court again found NSLs to be unconstitutional because they prevented courts from engaging in meaningful judicial review.[216][217][218]

Another provision of the USA PATRIOT Act brought a great deal of consternation amongst librarians. Section 215 allows the FBI to apply for an order to produce materials that assist in an investigation undertaken to protect against international terrorism or clandestine intelligence activities. Amongst the tangible things that could be targeted, it includes books, records, papers, documents, and other items .[56] Supporters of the provision point out that these records are held by third-parties, and therefore are exempt from a citizen’s reasonable expectations of privacy and also maintain that the FBI has not abused the provision.[219] As proof, then Attorney General John Ashcroft released information in 2003 that showed that section 215 orders had never been used.[220] However, despite protestations to the contrary, the American Library Association strongly objected to the provision, believing that library records are fundamentally different to ordinary business records, and that the provision would have a chilling effect on free speech. The association became so concerned that they formed a resolution condemning the USA PATRIOT Act, and which urged members to defend free speech and protect patrons’ privacy.[221] They urged librarians to seek legal advice before complying with a search order and advised their members to only keeping records for as long as was legally needed.[222] Consequently, reports started filtering in that librarians were shredding records to avoid having to comply with such orders.[223][224][225]

Another controversial aspect of the USA PATRIOT Act is the immigration provisions that allow for the indefinite detention of any alien whom the Attorney General believes may cause a terrorist act.[115] Before the USA PATRIOT Act was passed, Anita Ramasastry, an associate professor of law and a director of the Shidler Center for Law, Commerce, & Technology at the University of Washington School of Law in Seattle, Washington, accused the Act of depriving basic rights for immigrants to America, including legal permanent residents. She warned that Indefinite detention upon secret evidence — which the USA PATRIOT Act allows — sounds more like Taliban justice than ours. Our claim that we are attempting to build an international coalition against terrorism will be severely undermined if we pass legislation allowing even citizens of our allies to be incarcerated without basic U.S. guarantees of fairness and justice. [226] Many other parties have also been strongly critical of the provision. Russell Feingold, in a Senate floor statement, claimed that the provision falls short of meeting even basic constitutional standards of due process and fairness [as it] continues to allow the Attorney General to detain persons based on mere suspicion .[227] The University of California passed a resolution condemning (amongst other things) the indefinite detention provisions of the Act,[228] while the ACLU has accused the Act of giving the Attorney General unprecedented new power to determine the fate of immigrants… Worse, if the foreigner does not have a country that will accept them, they can be detained indefinitely without trial. [229]

Another controversial aspect of the USA PATRIOT Act is its effect on the privacy of British Columbian citizens. British Columbia’s privacy commissioner raises concerns that the USA PATRIOT Act will allow the United States government to access Canadians’ private information, such as personal medical records, that are outsourced to American companies. Although the government of British Columbia has taken measures to prevent United States authorities from obtaining information, the widespread powers of the USA PATRIOT Act could overcome legislation that is passed in Canada.[230] B.C. Privacy Commissioner David Loukidelis stated in a report on the consequences of the USA PATRIOT Act, “once information is sent across borders, it’s difficult, if not impossible, to control”.[231]

In an effort to maintain their privacy, British Columbia placed amendments on the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FOIPPA), which was enacted as law on October 21, 2004. These amendments aim to place more firm limitations on “storing, accessing, and disclosing of B.C. public sector data by service providers.”[232] These laws only pertain to public sector data and do not cover trans-border or private sector data in Canada. The public sector establishments include an estimated 2,000 “government ministries, hospitals, boards of health, universities and colleges, school boards, municipal governments and certain Crown corporations and agencies.”[232]

Legal action has been taken in Nova Scotia to protect the province from the USA PATRIOT Act’s data collecting methods. On November 15, 2007 the government of Nova Scotia passed a legislation aimed to protect Nova Scotians’ personal information from being brought forward by the USA PATRIOT Act. The act was entitled “The new Personal Information International Disclosure Protection Act”. The goal of the act is to establish requirements to protect personal information from being revealed, as well as punishments for failing to do so. Justice Minister Murray Scott stated, This legislation will help ensure that Nova Scotians’ personal information will be protected. The act outlines the responsibilities of public bodies, municipalities and service providers and the consequences if these responsibilities are not fulfilled. [233]

Retrieved on 2008-07-11. January 26, 2004: The Center for Constitutional Rights announced today that a federal court in Los Angeles has declared unconstitutional a provision of the USA PATRIOT Act, enacted six weeks after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. This is the first judicial ruling in the country declaring part of the USA PATRIOT Act unconstitutional. In a decision issued late Friday, U.S. District Judge Audrey Collins ruled that a ban on providing expert advice and assistance to terrorist groups violates the First and Fifth Amendments to the Constitution because it is so vague that it could be construed to include unequivocally pure speech and advocacy protected by the First Amendment.

NEW YORK – A federal court today struck down the amended Patriot Act’s National Security Letter (NSL) provision. The law has permitted the FBI to issue NSLs demanding private information about people within the United States without court approval, and to gag those who receive NSLs from discussing them. The court found that the gag power was unconstitutional and that because the statute prevented courts from engaging in meaningful judicial review of gags, it violated the First Amendment and the principle of separation of powers.

Early life, marriage, and ancestry

Hatch was born to Helen Kamm and Jesse Hatch[1] in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. In his youth, Hatch lived in the Pittsburgh suburbs of Mt. Lebanon[2] and Baldwin Borough.[3]

His great-grandfather, Jeremiah Hatch, founded what is now known as Vernal, located in eastern Utah. Hatch married Elaine Hansen of Newton, Utah and they have six children and twenty-three grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. He and his family are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Hatch served a mission in the Great Lakes States Mission. While there he was known as one of the most energetic and hardest working missionaries in the mission. Among his companions while a missionary was H. Bryan Richards, who later was an LDS General Authority.[4]

Education

Hatch, first in his family to attend college, attended Brigham Young University and, in 1959, received a degree in History. In 1962, he received a J.D. from the University of Pittsburgh Law School. As a law student, he worked as a janitor, a construction worker in the Wood, Wire and Metal Lathers Union (putting up walls over various kinds of lath), and a dormitory desk attendant.

Political career

For fourteen years after graduating, Hatch worked as an attorney at law in Pittsburgh and Utah. In 1976 in his first run for public office, he was elected to the United States Senate, defeating Democrat Frank Moss, a three-term incumbent. Among other issues, Hatch criticized Moss’s 18-year tenure in the Senate, saying that many Senators, including Moss, had lost touch with their constituents. Hatch won by an unexpectedly wide nine-point margin. He defeated Salt Lake City Mayor Ted Wilson by 17 points in his reelection bid in 1982. He hasn’t faced substantive opposition since, and has been reelected four times. He is the longest-serving Senator in Utah history.

In 2000, Hatch made a failed bid for the Republican Presidential nomination, losing to Texas Governor George W. Bush. During the first Republican debate, Hatch made web usability a campaign issue, a first for a presidential candidate. He claimed his website was more user-friendly than Bush’s. At least one web usability expert agreed.[5]

Hatch has long expressed interest in serving on the US Supreme Court and he had been mentioned as a possible nominee after George W. Bush became president. But after the appointments of John Roberts and Samuel Alito, a potential appointment seems to be very unlikely. In the aftermath of the U.S. Attorney firing scandal, Orrin Hatch was mentioned in various news sources as a candidate to succeed Alberto Gonzales as United States Attorney General.

Actions in the Senate

Joining the Senate

Seated as 100th in seniority in January 1977, Hatch set about making his presence known through advocacy of conservative causes. That year he led the longest filibuster on a legislative issue in Senate history, taking the Labor Law Reform Act to a record six unsuccessful cloture votes (to end debate), killing the bill and earning Hatch a reputation as anti-labor. In the process, Hatch invented the filibuster by amendment tactic, proposing and filing more than 2,000 amendments to the bill, discouraging even supporters from supporting an end to the filibuster.
Hatch During the Reagan Years

After campaigning as the top surrogate for Ronald Reagan in the presidential campaign in 1980, Hatch was catapulted to the chairmanship of the Labor and Human Resources Committee when the Senate turned Republican on Reagan’s coattails. Liberals feared what might happen, since the committee’s jurisdiction covered labor, education and health. But while the Republicans held a majority on the committee, that majority included maverick Sen. Lowell Weicker, (R-CT), who would frequently vote with the Democrats. Unable to force legislation, Hatch developed a policy of frequent consultations with Ranking Democrat Edward Kennedy, and the committee became a hotbed of health legislation and reform on other issues. During this period Hatch won cooperation from Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA), on orphan drug legislation, and with Rep. Al Gore (D-TN), on organ transplant legislation. Hatch continued and expanded the anti-smoking work of Sen. Moss, expanding the warning labels on cigarette packages to four more-specific, rotating warnings. Hatch wrote and passed the Home Health Care Act, authorizing Medicare funds to provide health care to people in their homes rather than at hospitals, saving significantly on individual actions and expanding the reach of federal health care assistance. Hatch’s collaborations with Kennedy would continue into the Clinton administration, with the two teaming up to push the State Children’s Health Insurance Program into law in 1997.

Hatch’s chief effect in education was persuading President Reagan to appoint fellow Utahn Terrel Bell as Secretary of Education. Bell proposed the Excellence in Education Commission whose report started education reform in the 1980s. Secretary of Labor Raymond Donovan was at odds with Hatch through much of Donovan’s term, however, due to administration bobbling of FBI information during the confirmation hearings.

Hatch also worked to increase conservative influence in Washington by recruiting a top-flight staff that would provide candidates for other key administrative positions. His Labor Committee staff included future National Labor Relations Board members Robert P. Hunter and James M. Stephens, future FDA Commissioner David Aaron Kessler, future Surgeon General Antonia Novello, future Health Care Finance Administration (HCFA) Director David N. Sundwall, and others.

Hatch & Nuclear Issues
Senator Orrin Hatch holds a press conference with Congressman Wayne Owens in March, 1989 as part of their successful charge to win passage of the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (RECA) which provides for ongoing compensation to Southern Utahns and others damaged by nuclear testing in the 1950s and 1960s.

During Hatch’s first year in the Senate, 1977, reporter Gordon Eliot White of the Deseret News published the first of what would be a lengthy series of articles detailing government malfeasance in atmospheric testing of nuclear bombs at the Nevada Test Site. Over the next 13 years White’s articles detailed how the government determined to proceed with the tests, and with mining and refining, without adequate safeguards for innocent citizens whose health would be damaged. Though Hatch feared an investigation would endanger the nation’s nuclear deterrence versus the Soviet Union and the Peoples Republic of China, by 1979 he was pushing for hearings on the issue before the Senate Labor Committee. Hatch prevailed on Committee Chairman Ted Kennedy to hold field hearings in Utah in 1980. At the end of 1980, Hatch was positioned to chair the committee himself.

By 1984 Hatch had held a dozen hearings, passed legislation requiring scientific investigation of the injuries and had enlisted the aid of the National Science Foundation and National Cancer Institute, but still could not muster the votes to get a bill. When a vote was obtained in the Senate in 1985, it failed. Hatch’s ferreting discovered a clause to pay at least $100 million to Marshall Islands injured similarly to Utah citizens, and Hatch took the treaty hostage. His hold on consideration of the treaty eventually got agreement from the Reagan administration to agree not to oppose radiation compensation for Utah citizens, but it still took another five years to get the bill through. The Radiation Compensation Act of 1990 provided compensation for citizens injured by radioactive fallout from the tests.

Hatch & Housing

In 1980, Hatch spoke in favor of rolling back provisions of the Fair Housing Act. Acting on his motion in 1988, Congress eventually voted to weaken the ability of plaintiffs to prosecute cases of discriminatory treatment in housing. At the time the 1988 Fair Housing Amendments were being debated, he introduced a bill endorsed by the National Association of Realtors to severely limit who can file anti-discrimination suits and to make the proceedings a private affair.

Hatch & Intellectual Property

Hatch caused an overnight controversy on June 17, 2003 by proposing that copyright owners should be able to destroy the computer equipment and information of those suspected of copyright infringement, including file sharing. In the face of criticism, especially from technology and privacy advocates, Hatch withdrew his suggestion days later, after it was discovered that Sen. Hatch’s official website was using an unlicensed JavaScript menu from United Kingdom based software developer Milonic Solutions. Milonic founder Andy Woolley stated that We’ve had no contact with them. They are in breach of our licensing terms. Shortly after the publication of that story in Wired magazine, the company who runs Hatch’s website contacted Milonic to start registration.[6]

One year later, he proposed the controversial INDUCE Act that attempted to make illegal all tools that could be used for copyright infringement. According to many critics, this act would effectively outlaw the Internet and personal computers, giving unprecedented legal leverage to media companies.

Hatch on Immigration, Other Issues

Hatch was one of the architects and advocates of the expansion of H-1b visas and has generally been an advocate of looser immigration policy, which upsets most members of his delegation in Utah. He also proposed the somewhat controversial DREAM Act, which would grant state-subsidized higher education to illegal immigrants.
A vocal supporter of stem cell research, Hatch was one of 58 senators who signed a letter directed to President George W. Bush, requesting the relaxing of federal restrictions on stem cell research.

He has also pushed legislation for the Equal Opportunity to Govern Amendment, which would amend Article 2, Section I, Clause 5 of the United States Constitution. Under this amendment it would allow anyone who has been a US citizen for twenty years to seek both the presidency and vice-presidency.

In 2006 Hatch gave a controversial speech to the Utah Senate, stating that terrorists across the world were waiting for the Democrats here to take control, let things cool off and then strike again. [7]

Controversies

Polygamy

In 1998, Hatch, a descendent of polygamists, defended polygamy in a taped interview, saying that the Constitution was ambiguous on the issue.[8] Under pressure, he later stated that the Constitution was not ambiguous, that polygamy should remain illegal, and that polygamy was against the teachings of his church. [9]

9/11 comments

On September 11, 2001, Hatch said in an interview that the United States government’s proof of al-Qaeda involvement in the day’s attacks came from intercepted communications: They have … some information that included people associated with bin Laden who acknowledged a couple of targets were hit. [10] For several days thereafter, Hatch came under fire from members of both parties for speaking so loosely about intelligence-gathering techniques.[citation needed]

Lobbying ties

Hatch’s son Scott is a named partner and registered lobbyist at Walker, Martin & Hatch LLC, a Washington lobbying firm. The firm was formed in 2001; the other two partners are Jack Martin, a staff aide to Senator Hatch for six years, and H. Laird Walker, who has been described as a close associate of the senator’s. [11] In March 2003, the Los Angeles Times quoted Senator Hatch as saying that the firm was formed with his personal encouragement and that he saw no conflict of interest in championing issues that helped his son’s clients. [12]

Hatch has legislated for dietary supplements to be governed outside of the realm of drugs and food additives. Utah, his constituency, is considered the Silicon Valley of the supplement industry. When the FDA was reviewing the adverse effects of ephedra, Hatch defended the supplement industry. At the time, Walker, Martin & Hatch LLC were being paid, by companies with interests in ephedra manufacturing, for lobbying Congress.[12]

In March 2009, the Washington Times reported that the pharmaceutical industry, which has long has benefited from Sen. Orrin G. Hatch’s legislative efforts , had previously undisclosed connections to Hatch. Five pharmaceutical companies and the industry’s main lobbying group, Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA), wrote checks in 2007 totaling more than $170,000 to the Utah Families Foundation, a tax-exempt charitable foundation which Hatch helped start in the 1990s and had vigorously supported since. Walker, Martin & Hatch LLC was paid $120,000 by PhRMA in 2007 to lobby Congress on pending U.S. Food and Drug Administration legislation.[11]

2006 re-election campaign
Main article: Utah United States Senate election, 2006

Hatch was heavily favored to win reelection for his 6th term in November 2006. The Utah Republican Party made him their formal candidate on May 13, 2006 by giving him 78% of the delegate vote at the State Convention.[citation needed] In November, he faced Democrat Pete Ashdown, an Internet company executive, Libertarian Dave Starr Seely, Desert Green Julian Hatch, Constitutionalist Scott Bradley, and Personal Choicer Roger Price.

Senator Hatch ignored or refused open requests to participate in a series of debates.[13] Democrat Pete Ashdown asked that all Senate candidates visit all 29 counties in Utah during the summer but Hatch opted instead for a debate or two and refuses to do it to a ridiculous extreme. [14] Hatch and Ashdown commenced this series of debates on October 11 at Tuacahn High School near St. George. Several days before the debate, radio hosts Shawn Ledingham and Justin Bowles of nearby Southern Utah University requested an interview with both candidates. The students, representing the university’s public service program, the Rant and Raev Show, wished to allow students at the University an opportunity to hear the candidates’ platforms. Both candidates agreed, although the interviews were conducted separately.

Hatch prevailed on election night, winning 344,416 votes (62%) to Ashdown’s 169,369 (31%).
Musical career

Orrin Hatch plays the piano, violin and organ. Fueled by his interest in poetry, Orrin has written songs for many. (On the advice of U2 front-man Bono, he has put several of the songs under a pen name, because it’s you, man. )[citation needed] He co-authored Everything And More, sung by Billy Gilman. In addition to his job as a United States Senator, Mr. Hatch has earned over $65,000 as an LDS music recording artist.[citation needed]

Hatch also has a history in arts management. In the early 1970s he was the band manager for a Mormon-themed folk group called the Free Agency. The Free Agency was made up of members of an earlier Mormon group called the Sons of Mosiah, that was formed when guitarist David Zandonatti and vocalist Ron McNeeley relocated to Utah after their San Francisco based psychedelic group Tripsichord music box disbanded in 1971.

Rock musician Frank Zappa composed a guitar instrumental entitled Orrin Hatch On Skiis, which appears on his album, Guitar (1988).

Hatch’s song Heal Our Land was performed at George W. Bush’s January 2005 inauguration.[15]

Hatch has even written works that count as hymns, often working with Janice Kapp Perry.[16]

Writing

In 2002, Hatch’s book Square Peg: Confessions of a Citizen Senator was published by Basic Books, a member of the Perseus Books Group. This book dissertates Hatch’s life in the Senate, including the Confirmation Hearings of Robert Bork and Clarence Thomas. Many consider the book to be the Senator’s memoirs. Senator Hatch’s name is attributed as the author for several law review articles although all were almost entirely written by his staff members.

Release of Dallas Austin

Hatch assisted R&B producer Dallas Austin’s release from Dubai following a conviction for drug possession. [1] On May 19, 2006 Austin was arrested for bringing cocaine into the city, but hours after a local court sentenced Austin to four years in prison before deportation, on July 4 Dubai ruler Sheik Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum pardoned and released him. Hatch has good relations with the ambassador and other good people in Dubai, said his office in a statement.

History

Joseph Cassano and Thomas R. Savage helped start the group in 1987. AIGFP businesses specialize in aircraft and equipment leasing, capital markets, consumer finance and insurance premium finance.

AIGFP focused principally on OTC derivatives markets and acted as principal in nearly all of its transactions involving capital markets offerings and corporate finance, investment and financial risk management products. AIGFP played key roles in the acquisition of London City Airport and, in one of the largest private equity transactions announced in 2006, the management-led buyout of Kinder Morgan Inc.

AIGFP’s commodity derivatives and commodity indices helped stimulate the development of this new asset class. AIGFP’s sponsored a major study on the historical performance of commodity futures by professors Gary Gorton and K. Geert Rouwenhorst.[1] AIGFP created a specialized credit business. AIGFP focused its business on structured products like CDO’s. In 2003, it absorbed subsidiary, AIG Trading Group (AIG-TG) which dealt primarily in over the counter derivatives and created the Dow Jones-AIG Commodity Index (DJ-AIGCI) from their offices in Greenwich, CT. The DJ-AIGCI is a leading commodity benchmark composed of 19 futures contracts on physical commodities. As of the end of June 2007, there was an estimated $38 billion invested in financial products that track the DJ-AIGCI on a global basis.[2]

From 1987 to 2004, AIGFP contributed over $5 billion to AIG’s pre-tax income. During that period, AIG’s market capitalization increased from $11 billion to $181 billion, and its stock price increased from $4.50 per share to $62.34 per share.

Crisis of 2008

AIGFP’s trading in credit derivatives led to enormous losses.[3] These losses at AIGFP division essentially bankrupted the entire AIG operation, and forced the United States government to bail out the insurer.[4]

Early life

Born Francis Anthony Keating on February 10, 1944 in St. Louis, Missouri, Keating was not even six months old when his family moved to Oklahoma and settled in Tulsa. A devout Roman Catholic, Keating attended Cascia Hall Preparatory School in Tulsa, from which he graduated in 1962. Keating was accepted to Georgetown University in Washington, D.C.. He would go on to receive as Bachelor of Arts degree in History in 1966. After receiving his degree, Keating would return to Oklahoma to further his education. He received a Juris Doctorate from the University of Oklahoma College of Law in 1969.

Upon receiving his law degree, Keating began his career in law enforcement. The same year he finished law school, Keating was made a Special agent for the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Relocated to the West Coast, Keating was charged with investigating terrorism incidents in the area and other various duties. After years on the coast, Keating would return to Tulsa to become an Assistant District Attorney. In 1973, Keating, under the Republican Party banner, was elected to the Oklahoma House of Representatives. He would only serve a single term in the House, until 1975, when he was elected to the Oklahoma Senate. He would serve in the Senate from 1975 until 1981, winning reelection in 1978. While in the Senate, Keating rose to become the highest ranking Republican as the Senate Minority Leader.

Federal career

Keating’s law enforcement career and prominence in the Oklahoma Republican Party prompted newly elected President of the United States Ronald Reagan to appoint Keating as the United States Attorney for the Northern District of Oklahoma. Keating served as the US Attorney from 1981 until 1985, becoming the chairman of all US Attorneys within that four year time. Following President Reagan’s reelection in 1984, Reagan once again tapped Keating to serve in the federal government.

Reagan appointed Keating to serve as an Assistant Secretary of the Treasury and later elevated him to United States Associate Attorney General, the third ranking official within the United States Department of Justice. These appointments made Keating the highest ranking Oklahoman during the Reagan administration. In his positions as Assistant Secretary of the Treasury and Associate Attorney General, Keating over saw both the Justice and Treasury departments’ law enforcement agencies. These included the United States Customs Service, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center, the Federal Bureau of Prisons, the United States Marshals service, the Immigration and Naturalization Service, all 94 United States Attorneys, the United States role in Interpol and the United States Secret Service.

Following the election of George H.W. Bush as President in 1988, Keating continued to serve in the Justice Department in his role as Associate Attorney General. President Bush elevated Keating in 1990 to General Counsel and Acting Deputy Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, that Department’s second highest office, under Secretary Jack Kemp. He would serve as the Deputy Secretary until 1993. As with the case of the Reagan administration, Keating became the highest ranking Oklahoman in the federal government under Bush.

On November 14, 1991, Bush nominated Keating to a seat on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit, but with Democrats controlling the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee, Keating’s nomination languished, and no hearing was held before Bush’s presidency ended. President Bill Clinton chose not to renominate Keating to the seat.[1]

After over a decade of service to the federal government, Keating returned home to Oklahoma.

Governor of Oklahoma

After two years of private life, in 1994, Keating received the Republican nomination for Governor of Oklahoma. In a three way race, Keating received 47% of the vote and defeated the Democratic nominee by 17 points. Keating was sworn in as the 25th Governor of Oklahoma on January 9, 1995.

Oklahoma City Bombing
Main article: Oklahoma City Bombing

Governor Keating had little time to relax upon taking office. Within three months of taking office, on April 19, the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City was destroyed in the Oklahoma City bombing, in which the lives of 168 Oklahomans were lost and over 800 people were injured. The blast destroyed or damaged more than 300 buildings in the surrounding area, leaving several hundred people homeless and shutting down offices in downtown Oklahoma City.

Governor Keating immediately mobilized relief and rescue teams to handle the crisis, assuring prompt assistance. Over 12,000 people participated in relief and rescue operations in the days following the blast. The national and worldwide humanitarian response was immediate and overwhelming. Governor Keating declared a state of emergency, which allowed FEMA to activated 11 of its Urban Search and Rescue Task Forces to assist in rescue and recovery operations.

The national focus climaxed on April 23, when President Bill Clinton, along with Governor Keating and the Reverend Billy Graham, spoke in Oklahoma City. In the weeks following the bombing, rescue efforts ceased and the building was imploded. Through both his own works and the works of his wife Cathy Keating, Governor Keating gained both national and international attention for his efforts to help the victims and their families. Governor Keating also created a $6 million fund to assist victims and provide for scholarships for children who have lost a parent in the attack.

First term

Governor Keating set out with an impressive agenda for the state under his administration, with many of his initiatives passed, despite an often hostile Democrat controlled Legislature. Many of Keating’s proposals were polices designed for growth and reform for Oklahoma. These included education reform, environmental protection, tax relief, road building, economic development, public safety, and tougher law enforcement. Keating also lead the charge in privatizing the state’s teacher hospital system, created a public-private partnership to assure care for the indigent as well as a stronger medical education program.

Keating’s first major success was the passage of the first welfare reform law in the nation in 1995. The law, by 2001, had reduced Oklahoma’s welfare rolls by over 70%. The success of the law served as a model for President Clinton’s welfare reform act of 1996, the first major reform of Social Security since its institution. Keating even managed to improve road and highway conditions throughout the state without raising taxes through his policies.

A law and order politician, Keating used his career in law enforcement to serve Oklahomans. He implemented tough parole policies and introduced the landmark truth-in-sentencing legislation. Keating also showed little amnesty when handling death sentence criminals, allowing many of those sentenced to death to be executed. Keating also raised the salaries of Oklahoma’s state troopers from the lowest in the nation to the 24th highest.
Keating has been at the forefront of tougher regulations on Oklahoma’s hog and poultry industries. Keating appointed a special committee to craft legislation to address the issue. His Animal Waste and Water Quality Protection Task Force studied the problem, and created a solution that both regulated the commerce of the industries as well as to protected the environment.

Keating’s greatest success of his first term come in 1998 when he become the first Governor in 50 years to achieve a tax cut in the state’s income tax. This combined with reduction in the sales tax, estate tax, and unemployment tax formed the largest tax break in the state’s history until that point. Keating’s policies and tax cuts created the greatest era of prosperity Oklahoma had ever seen, causing the creation of over 130,000 new jobs for Oklahomans.

Second term

As the 1998 general election rolled around, Keating won in a landslide victory, becoming only the second Governor in Oklahoma history to win two consecutive terms (after George Nigh) and the only Republican to do so. Sworn in on January 11, 1999, Keating’s second term began with a progressive agenda, based primarily on education. In his 1999 inaugural address, Keating set four goals for Oklahoma for his second term:

1. Raising Oklahoma’s ACT to the national average by 2005,
2. Decreasing Oklahoma’s divorce rate by 50% before 2010,
3. Ensure one out of every three Oklahomans has a college degree by 2010, and
4. Raising Oklahoma’s per capita income to reach the national average by 2025

Keating focused largely on education. He increased spending for common, vo-tech, and higher education facilities throughout the state and introduced charter schools to Oklahoma for the first time. His policies and recommendations on education to the Legislature lead to the largest investment, over $100 million, on higher education. Keating, in 2000, also raised teacher pay by over $3000 annually, the largest raise Oklahoma’s teacher had ever experienced. Keating even managed to get higher educational facilities attracted to Tulsa for the first time.

Along with the agenda set forth in his inaugural address, Keating also tackled out-of-wedlock births, substance abuse, and child abuse. Enlisting state government, community groups, and faith organizations, Governor Keating organized the statewide initiative to strengthen marriage. The executive branch agencies that dealt with health issues were reorganized by Keating in 2000 amid a purge of legislative patronage to the Oklahoma State Department of Health.

Next on Keating’s list was a reform of Oklahoma’s antiquated worker’s compensation system. Keating, a staunch proponent of right to work laws, struggled to get his reforms passed while the Democratic legislature debated his measures. In reasons, Keating adjusted polices, made new appointments to Oklahoma’s Worker’s Compensation Court, and other measures to control Oklahoma’s rising worker’s compensation costs. Despite his works, Keating would have to wait two years to see his vision fulfilled. In 2000 when Republicans gained many seats within both the Oklahoma House and Oklahoma Senate, the Legislature decided to put right to work laws to a referendums to be held in 2001. Keating’s six year battle came to an end when, on September 21, 2001, Oklahomans approved the measure into law.

As he had done in first term, Keating sought to grant broad-based tax cuts. To further reduce taxes, Keating won passage of an income tax break and of the creation of Oklahoma’s earned income credit system to benefit the poor. Also, under Keating’s auspices, both Democratic and Republican leaders in the Legislature launched studies to examine Oklahoma’s tax system, with the purpose of overhauling the entire system. During the study, the complete elimination of Oklahoma’s income tax was proposed.

Also continuing with his tough crime policies, Keating signed a major criminal justice bill that reformed Truth in Sentencing (TIS) to Oklahoma. This legislation extended TIS of previous administrations to ensure that violent and repeat offenders would remain in jail. To represent this to Oklahomans, Keating issued very few pardons or paroles to individuals sentenced to long detentions or capital punishment.

In other legislative initiatives, Keating signed the repeal of Oklahoma’s annual vehicle inspection program. He also granted state correctional officers and highway patrol troopers pay raises. Keating addressed the problems faced in Oklahoma’s Tar Creek Superfund site by appointing a task force on the issue.

Among Keating’s other accomplishments; overseeing the largest road construction project in Oklahoma history and leading his state through devastating tornadoes in 1999. As a crowning achievement, Keating raised more than $20 million in private money towards completion of the Oklahoma State Capitol with a dome. The capitol was originally designed for a dome, but state funding for it had run dry during World War I.

Oklahome Supreme Court appointments

Governor Keating appointed the following Justices to the Oklahoma Supreme Court:

* James R. Winchester – 2000

2000 Presidential election

During the United States presidential election, 2000, Keating, while still Governor of Oklahoma, was considered a potential candidate for the Republican nomination of Vice President of the United States under George W. Bush. After Bush chose Dick Cheney, and won the Presidential election, Keating was a contender for U.S. Attorney General in Bush’s administration. However, he was rejected when it was reported that from 1990 through 1997 Keating had accepted gifts of nearly $250,000³ from mutual fund pioneer Jack Dreyfus. Keating publicly stated that the gifts were fully disclosed and were approved by the Federal Office of Government Ethics.

Post-governorship

Following his two terms as governor, Keating accepted a position as president and CEO of the American Council of Life Insurers, the trade association for the life insurance and retirement security industry. In 2002 he authored a children’s book about Oklahoma humorist Will Rogers. Another children’s book about Theodore Roosevelt followed in 2006. Keating also served on the boards of the National Archives and Mt. Vernon. He currently lives in McLean, Va.

Keating and his wife Cathy are the parents of three children, Carrie, Kelly, and Chip. In 2001, Cathy Keating was an unsuccessful candidate for the Republican nomination to one of Oklahoma’s seats in the U.S. House of Representatives being vacated by Steve Largent. In 2006, Chip Keating was an unsuccessful candidate for the Republican nomination to a seat in the Oklahoma House of Representatives.

On December 2, 2006 columnist Robert Novak suggested Keating might be a candidate for the 2008 Republican Presidential nomination.[2]

On December 20, 2006, Keating visited Columbia, SC, where he spoke to a group of GOP supporters about a possible 2008 Presidential bid.[3]

On January 17, 2007, Keating was quoted in the Tulsa World as declining a possible run for the U.S. Presidency in 2008 [1]. His reasons for not running were associated with the relative head starts in preparations of U.S. Senator John McCain and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney. In February 2007 Keating appeared in Spartanburg, South Carolina and endorsed McCain’s bid [2].

Events

* April 19, 1995: Three months after he was sworn in as Oklahoma governor, a fertilizer bomb exploded in front of a federal building in the capital killing 168 people.
Further information: Oklahoma City bombing
* June, 2002: Keating, a practicing Roman Catholic, was named Chairman of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ National Review Board examining sex abuse by Catholic Priests.
* June 16, 2003: After months of working with the Catholic Church, Keating stepped down as head of the Catholic review board. The resignation came days after Los Angeles Cardinal Roger Mahony criticized Keating for comparing some church leaders to the Mafia. In his resignation letter, Keating said, My remarks, which some Bishops found offensive, were deadly accurate. I make no apology… To resist Grand Jury subpoenas, to suppress the names of offending clerics, to deny, to obfuscate, to explain away; that is the model of a criminal organization, not my church.

R. Crosby Kemper
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Rufus Crosby Kemper Sr. (1892–1972) transformed City Center Bank into UMB Financial Corporation in Kansas City, Missouri, during his tenure from 1919 to 1967.

He contributed substantially to philanthropies in the Kansas City area and Kemper Arena is named for him.

Rufus Crosby Kemper was born in Valley Falls, Kansas.

His father William T. Kemper bought City Center Bank (which was founded in 1913) during World War I.

The senior Kemper first appointed Crosby’s younger brother James M. Kemper (James Madison Kemper) president of the bank in 1919. James resigned a month later and went on to become president of rival Commerce Bancshares. Crosby became president of the bank, a position he held until 1950 when his son R. Crosby Kemper Jr. took over (who in turn was succeeded by his son Crosby III). Crosby Sr. stayed on as director until 1967.

The rivalry between the brothers and their descendants defines much of Missouri financial and philanthropic history.

Crosby also served as a regent at Rockhurst University, president of Interstate Securities and director of Kansas City Title & Trust Company.

James died at age 70 in 1965. Crosby died in 1972 at age 80.

History

The company was founded in 1913 as City Center Bank by William T. Kemper with $1,100 in first-day deposits. William’s son R. Crosby Kemper became president in 1919. Crosby’s brother, James M. Kemper, worked on building Commerce Bancshares. City Center Bank started what is claimed to be the first drive-up window in 1928.

In 1934, the bank was renamed City National Bank & Trust Company, and opened its headquarters in downtown Kansas City at 928 Grand Boulevard. As banking laws changed, the bank formed a holding company and changed its name to United Missouri Bancshares, Inc. In 1994, the bank again changed its name to UMB Financial Corporation to better suit its expanding, multi-state business. In 2004, it began being traded on NASDAQ.

Roberts a Federalist Society Leader, Despite Denials
July 25, 2005

The conservative Federalist Society has been a force on the right for decades, and counts three former or current Bush Cabinet Secretaries among its membership. Supreme Court Nominee John G. Roberts, Jr. denies any membership with the Federalist Society. The White House went so far as to call reporters who wrote that he was a member, and told them that Roberts, in fact, did not recall being a member. However, a 1997-1998 Leadership Directory names Roberts as a member of the steering committee. Roberts continues to deny membership despite the revelation of the directory and the White House continues to cover for him. The Republican Administration calls for a fair confirmation process, but how fair can that process be if the nominee and the White House will not be frank with the American people?
Roberts’ Name Listed in Federalist Society Leadership Directory

Roberts Was on the Federalist Society Steering Committee According to its 1997-1998 Leadership Directory. The Washington Post obtained a copy of the Federalist Society Lawyers’ Division Leadership Directory, 1997-1998. The directory lists Roberts, then a partner at the law firm Hogan & Hartson, as a member of the steering committee of the organization’s Washington chapter. Included in the entry is his firm’s address and telephone number. Since Roberts has served only two years on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit and has a long career as a government and private-sector lawyer, he does not have much of a public paper record that would show his judicial philosophy. Working with the Federalist Society would reveal an extremist right wing philosophy. Though the organization keeps its membership rolls secret, many high profile members of the Bush Administration are acknowledged current or former members. [Washington Post, 7/25/05]

* Roberts Is One of 19 Steering Committee Members Listed in the Directory. The Federalist Society Leadership Directory lists Roberts as one of the 19 steering committee members. The Post reported that, Among the others on the list are such prominent conservatives as William Bradford Reynolds, a Justice Department civil rights chief in the Reagan Administration; Ethics and Public Policy Center President M. Edward Whelan III; and the late Barbara Olson, who was a Capitol Hill staff member at the time. Her husband, former U.S. solicitor general Theodore B. Olson, is listed as president of the chapter. [Washington Post, 7/25/05]

* Roberts Was Recruited to Serve on Steering Committee. Federalist Society Executive Vice President Leonard A. Leo said that either he or another official of the organization recruited Roberts for the committee. Roberts’s task was to serve as a point of contact within the firm to let people know what is going on with the organization. [Washington Post, 7/25/05]

Roberts Has Publicly Denied Membership in the Federalist Society Since 2001. The Washington Post reported, In 2001, after he was nominated by President Bush for the seat he currently holds on the court of appeals, Roberts spoke to Post reporter James V. Grimaldi and asked him to correct an item Grimaldi had written that described Roberts as a member of the Federalist Society. In a subsequent column, Grimaldi wrote that Roberts ‘is not and never has been a member of the Federalist Society, as previous reported in this column.’ [Washington Post, 7/25/05]

* Roberts Failed to Divulge Membership in the Federalist Society During His Confirmation to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. In a 2003 Senate Judiciary Committee questionnaire, Roberts does not include the Federalist Society in the list of organizations of which he is a member. [Senate Judiciary Committee Questionnaire, 2003]

* Today, Roberts Declined to Explain Listing in the Federalist Society Directory. Supreme Court nominee John Roberts declined to explain why he was listed in a Federalist Society leadership directory when the White House says he doesn’t recall being a member of the conservative legal organization. Roberts was asked by a reporter about the discrepancy during a morning meeting with Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif. His only reply was, No, no, no thanks. [AP, 7/25/05]

White House Officials Cover for Roberts, Stating That They Would Deny His Membership Even If They Had Known of Roberts Work on the Steering Committee. The day after Bush announced Roberts’s nomination, the officials working on the nomination asked the White House press office to call each news organization that had reported Roberts’s membership to tell them that he did not recall being a member. The Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, USA Today and the Associated Press printed corrections. White House spokeswoman Dana Perino said Roberts has no recollection of being a member of the Federalist Society, or its steering committee. Roberts has acknowledged taking part in some Federalist Society activities, Perino said. When asked if the White House would have done so knowing about the leadership directory, Perino said Yes.

Group’s Mission Statement: In its mission and purpose, the Federalist Society is unique. By providing a forum for legal experts of opposing views to interact with members of the legal profession, the judiciary, law students, academics, and the architects of public policy, the Society has redefined the terms of legal debate. Our expansion in membership, chapters, and program activity has been matched by the rapid growth of the Society’s reputation and the quality and influence of our events. We have fostered a greater appreciation for the role of separation of powers; federalism; limited, constitutional government; and the rule of law in protecting individual freedom and traditional values. Overall, the Society’s efforts are improving our present and future leaders’ understanding of the principles underlying American law.

Federalist Society Is A Conservative Legal Network Of 25,000 Members. The Federalist Society is a collection of conservative to libertarian attorneys dedicated to preserving strong states rights positions that works hard to promote its members through ideological networking. The Federalist Society also works to promote its members to the federal judiciary. Founded by a group of conservative law students in 1982 at the University of Chicago and Yale law schools, the Federalist Society was originally supervised by Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia and Yale Law School professor Judge Robert Bork. Today, the Federalist Society has grown to include more than 25,000 conservative attorneys, policy experts and political activists, and operates on an annual budget of $3 million. According to the Oregonian, [a]t the bedrock of the Federalist Society is an unbending belief in limited government and a skeptical approach to regulation. In conservative circles, membership in or association with the society has become a badge of ideological and political reliability. Roberts’s membership was routinely reported by news organizations in the context of his work in two GOP administrations and legal assistance to the party during the contested 2000 presidential election in Florida. [The Nation, 3/26/01; New York Times, 5/9/01; Will column, Newsweek, 5/14/01; Institute for Democracy briefing paper, The Federalist Society and the Challenge to a Democratic Jurisprudence, 1/01; http://www.fed-soc.org; Oregonian, 4/19/01; Washington Post, 7/25/05]
Federalist Society Members Are Anti-Choice Activists. The Federalist Society actively targets the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that legalized abortion. According to NARAL, Of the twelve lawyers the Society currently designates on its website as ‘experts’ on abortion/Roe v. Wade, almost all have fought for Roe’s overturn; many have actively campaigned outside the courtroom for anti-choice causes, and several have engaged in political efforts against Roe. [NARAL Fact Sheet on Federalist Society, www.naral.org]

Federalist Society Members Called For Abolition of SEC, Overturning Brady Bill, Supported California Anti-Affirmative Action Initiative. Members of the Federalist Society are proponents of many conservative causes, which they frequently advocate in the practice group newsletters. In the Summer, 1998 Corporations, Securities and Antitrust newsletter, an article headlined The Case for Abolishing the SEC was featured. An early issue of the Civil Rights practice group newsletter was almost exclusively devoted to Proposition 209, according to the Institute for Democracy. Past Federalism and Separation of Powers practice group newsletters have discussed invalidation of the Brady Bill. The Fall, 1997 Labor and Employment Law practice group newsletter featured an article entitled Sex, Lies and Statistics: The Wage Gap. [Institute for Democracy briefing paper, The Federalist Society and the Challenge to a Democratic Jurisprudence, 1/01]

Federalist Society Members Have Argued Against Affirmative Action, Punitive Damages Awards By Juries. Members of the Federalist Society have argued some of the most conservative positions in law and politics, including: affirmative action programs are unconstitutional discrimination against whites; the Fifth Amendment takings provision supports constitutional challenges to a number of laws, from zoning to workers compensation laws; harassment-free workplace laws violate free speech rules; and that punitive damages awards by juries are a capricious, unpredictable, randomly destructive scheme of punishment.

Debating the Subtle Sway of the Federalist Society
By JASON DePARLE
Published: August 1, 2005

Correction Appended

WASHINGTON, July 31 – I am a member of the Federalist Society, and I do not know, quite frankly, what it stands for.

The transcript does not say whether people in the Senate hearing room responded with disbelief. But that is how one person headed for a top job in the Justice Department, Viet D. Dinh, described his relationship with the society, a conservative legal group whose influence is the source of ever-swelling myth, mystery, insinuation, denial and debate.

Jaime Rose for The New York Times

Eugene B. Meyer, president of the Federalist Society, said idealism attracted members.

In a new Washington ritual, President Bush has repeatedly drawn from the Federalist Society for cabinet members, senior aides and judges. And perhaps to deflect what many conservatives call unfair attacks by liberals, the nominees have repeatedly claimed to know little about the group’s beliefs.

White House aides have worked hard to put distance between the society and John G. Roberts, the federal appeals judge Mr. Bush has nominated for the Supreme Court. They have even demanded corrections from newspapers that identified him as a member.

Then an old directory surfaced last week, listing Judge Roberts as part of one of the group’s steering committees. The White House spokesmen clung to their line; since Judge Roberts had not, apparently, written a $25 membership check, he was not a formal member.

Who cares? Lots of people, it seems, because a fight over the influence of the Federalist Society is a proxy in the war over the federal judiciary and the Constitution itself.

Remarkable in its growth and reach, the society was founded in 1982 by law students unhappy with what they saw as liberal dominance in law school faculties and the courts. It now claims 35,000 participants (some paying dues and some not) and has chapters in virtually every law school and in 60 cities. Part of the society’s influence stems from its sponsorship of public debates, which hone and promote conservative points of view.

But much of the influence, and most of the intrigue, flows from an informal social network, which members use to advance one another’s causes and careers. Openly and behind the scenes, members have played prominent roles in the most pitched political battles in recent years, including the impeachment of President Bill Clinton and the Florida recount fracas in 2000 that led to the election of Mr. Bush.

The society takes few official positions. But to some liberal critics, the activism of its members conjures all they fear about the legal right, from the defense of states’ rights and business interests to attacks on affirmative action, gay rights and abortion. One liberal blog, democrats.com, called the group the conservative cabal that is attacking America from within.

Ralph G. Neas, president of People for the American Way, a liberal advocacy group, did not go that far in an interview last week. But he pointed to the society as a link between Judge Roberts and two Supreme Court justices many on the left abhor, Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas. Justice Scalia was a faculty adviser to the society, and Justice Thomas has praised its work and spoken at its events.

Just because someone belongs to the Federalist Society does not inherently disqualify them, Mr. Neas said. But it certainly raises a lot of questions about whether that individual adheres to the judicial philosophy of Clarence Thomas and Antonin Scalia, who are not mainstream conservatives, he said.

Leaders of the group cry foul. Steven G. Calabresi, a law professor at Northwestern University who helped found the group as a law student at Yale and is now chairman of its board, evoked the question Senator Joseph McCarthy used a half-century ago in hunting Communists: There’s been an element of ‘Are you now or have you ever been a member of the Federalist Society?’

It’s worse than McCarthyism, because at least McCarthy was going after people who advocated a total dictatorship, he said. We don’t even hold a unified set of views.

Although the group endorses a few broad principles like the separation of powers and a faithful adherence to Constitutional text, Mr. Calabresi said there was much disagreement on particulars. The Federalist Society is a debate club, he said.

The blurred lines between the group’s official debate-club role and the private activities of many of its members were on display last week as the group’s longtime president, Eugene B. Meyer, dismissed as silly accusations that the society was exercising secret influence. That’s just not how we operate, he said.

Mr. Meyer said outside observers often failed to recognized the idealism that attracted members. I don’t mean to sound too goody-two-shoes about this, but it’s an interest in good government and how people can do the best for the society, he said. Recalling a trip through rural Mexico, Mr. Meyer spoke of the Stone Age living conditions there as an example of how people suffer when they haven’t had the rule of law.

Yet down the hall from Mr. Meyer’s office, a vacated desk testified to the more activist role that members often play. It belonged to Leonard A. Leo, the executive vice president, who doubles as the head of Catholic outreach for the Republican Party and who has taken a leave of absence to help Judge Roberts win confirmation.
As he argued that the society’s influence flowed from its intellectual work – I sound a little like a broken record, but what I’m excited about are the ideas – Mr. Meyer also said he had benefited from news media training by Creative Response Concepts. That is the public relations firm that represented Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, the group whose advertisements in last year’s presidential campaign attacked the war record of Senator John Kerry, the Democratic nominee.
The Federalist Society hired the firm, Mr. Meyer said, to train members and place them on television shows during the confirmation process. He said the goal was to educate the public on the role of judges and courts. Given the general philosophical outlook, the chances are very good that they’ll support the nominee, Mr. Meyer said. But that’s not the purpose.

In the early days of the Bush presidency, administration officials said about a quarter of their judicial nominees were recommended by the Washington headquarters of the society. Mr. Meyer said the advice came from staff members speaking in their private capacities, not as official representatives.

With an annual budget of $5.5 million, the society has benefited from decades of support from prominent conservative organizations, including the John M. Olin, Sarah Scaife, and Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundations.

In the 1990’s, three Federalist Society lawyers, Jerome M. Marcus, Richard W. Porter and George T. Conway, played important but covert roles in helping Paula Corbin Jones sue President Clinton for sexual harassment. They also worked behind the scenes to disclose Mr. Clinton’s affair with a White House intern, Monica Lewinsky.

Kenneth W. Starr, the independent counsel whose report led to Mr. Clinton’s impeachment, is a prominent member of the society, as is Theodore B. Olson, who successfully argued Bush v. Gore, the case that stopped the Florida recount in 2000 and ensured Mr. Bush’s election.

According to the Senate Judiciary Committee, 15 of the 41 appeals court judges confirmed under Mr. Bush have identified themselves as members of the group. Complaining that the society serves as the secret handshake of Mr. Bush’s judicial nominees, Senator Richard J. Durbin, an Illinois Democrat on the committee, has repeatedly questioned them about the group’s mission statement. Their answers, he said, have ranged from the amusing to the preposterous.

Carolyn Kuhl, who later withdrew her stalled bid for an appeals court seat, wrote, I did not participate in writing the mission statement.

Therefore I am unable to opine, she said.

Jeffrey S. Sutton, who won a seat on the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, said, I have no idea what their philosophy is.

Mr. Dinh, who left his Justice Department position in 2003 and now teaches law at Georgetown, said he answered candidly at his confirmation hearing. I did not know, and still do not know, what the society stands for because it has no stated philosophy other than the exchange of ideas, he said. There’s no evasion in that. It’s just as straightforward as it gets.

Mr. Durbin’s questions did bring sharp words from one society member. I am on the board of advisers of the Federalist Society, and I am darn proud of it, said Senator Orrin G. Hatch, a Utah Republican on the Judiciary Committee. Mr. Hatch called the society a group of lawyers who are just sick and tired of the leftward leanings of our government.
Among those with a complex view of the group is Guido Calabresi, a federal appeals court judge and an uncle of Steven Calabresi. Judge Calabresi, a former dean of Yale Law School, was appointed by President Clinton, and his academic views are to the left of his nephew’s.

The Federalist Society was, when it got started, a wonderful idea, Judge Calabresi said, and it has made a lot of conservative thought seem as respectable and attractive as it is. But he worries that its career-advancement role invites distrust and promotes conformity.

It becomes something of a secret society, he said. The conversation becomes a conversation among people who already know what they’re going to say.

Anticipating the criticism, Steven Calabresi fired off a pre-emptive e-mail message to a reporter, arguing that the same could be said of elite law schools like Yale.

Unlike many arguments about the Federalist Society, though, this one promises to end amicably: the two Calabresis, close friends and mutual admirers, will soon be off for a shared vacation.

Correction: August 4, 2005, Thursday:

An article on Monday about the influence of the Federalist Society, a conservative legal group, omitted attribution for the first press report that a society directory listed Judge John G. Roberts Jr., nominee for the Supreme Court, as a member of one of the group’s steering committees, a role Mr. Roberts has said he does not remember. It was reported by The Washington Post.

Federalist Society
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies
The Federalist Society logo, depicting the silhouette of James Madison’s bust
Type legal
Purpose/focus To promote the principles that the state exists to preserve freedom, that the separation of governmental powers is central to our Constitution, and that it is emphatically the province and duty of the judiciary to say what the law is, not what it should be.[1]
Location Washington, DC
President Eugene B. Meyer[2]
Website http://www.fed-soc.org/

The Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies, most frequently called simply the Federalist Society, is an organization of conservatives and libertarians seeking reform of the current American legal system[1] in accordance with an originalist interpretation of the Constitution. The Federalist Society began at Yale Law School, Harvard Law School, and the University of Chicago Law School in 1982 as a student organization that challenged what its members perceived as the orthodox American liberal ideology found in most law schools. The Society is founded on the principles that the state exists to preserve freedom, that the separation of governmental powers is central to our Constitution, and that it is emphatically the province and duty of the judiciary to say what the law is, not what it should be. [1]

The Society currently has chapters at over 180 United States law schools and claims a membership of over 20,000 practicing attorneys (organized as alumni chapters within the Society’s Lawyers Division ) in sixty cities.[1] Its headquarters are in Washington, D.C. Through speaking events, lectures, and other activities, the Federalist Society provides a forum for legal experts of opposing views to interact with members of the legal profession, the judiciary, law students, and academics.[1]

Background

The Society looks to Federalist Paper Number 78[3] for an articulation of the virtue of judicial restraint, as written by Alexander Hamilton: It can be of no weight to say that the courts, on the pretense of a repugnancy, may substitute their own pleasure to the constitutional intentions of the legislature…. The courts must declare the sense of the law; and if they should be disposed to exercise WILL instead of JUDGMENT, the consequence would equally be the substitution of their pleasure to that of the legislative body.

Its logo is a silhouette of former President and Constitution author James Madison, who co-wrote the Federalist Papers. Commissioner Paul S. Atkins of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission considered Federalist Society members the heirs of James Madison’s legacy in a speech he gave in January 2008 to the Federalist Society Lawyers’ Chapter of Dallas, Texas. Madison is generally credited as the father of the Constitution and became the fourth President of the United States.[4]

The Society’s name is said to have been based on the 18th-century Federalist Party;[5] however, James Madison associated with Thomas Jefferson and the Democratic-Republican Party in opposition to Federalist Party policies borne from a loose interpretation of the Commerce Clause. The Federalist Society’s views are more associated with the general meaning of Federalism (particularly the New Federalism) and the content of the Federalist Papers than with the later Federalist Party.

Funding and history

The Federalist Society is funded by member dues and by grants.

The society was begun by a group including Edwin Meese, Robert Bork, Ted Olson and Steven Calabresi, and its members have included Supreme Court justices Antonin Scalia, John Roberts, Jr. and Samuel Alito.[6]

Aims and membership

In working to promote the ideology set forth in its Statement of Principles , the Society has created a network of intellectuals that extends to all levels of the legal community. The Student Division has more than 5,000 law students as members and, through the national office’s network of legal experts, the Society provides speakers for differing viewpoints at law school events. The activities of the Student Division are complemented by the activities of the Lawyers Division, which comprises more than 20,000 legal professionals, and the Faculty Division, which includes many in the academic legal community.

The Society seeks to debate constitutional issues and public policy questions, and this commitment extends to inviting speakers who do not agree with the society’s principles. For example, past invitees include Justice Stephen Breyer and law professor Alan Dershowitz, two legal authorities who disagree with many of the Society’s views. Society member and UCLA law professor Eugene Volokh explained this willingness to discuss other views by writing, We think that a fair debate between us and our liberal adversaries will win more converts for our positions than for the other side’s. [7] In the words of Dan Lowenstein, a Democrat and political appointee of former California governor Jerry Brown, The Federalist Society is one of the few student organizations putting on public events that contribute to the intellectual life of the law school. [7] The Federalist Society’s guide to forming and running a chapter of the society claims that the organization creates an informal network of people with shared views which can provide assistance in job placement. [8]

Federalist Society members helped to encourage President George W. Bush’s decision to terminate the American Bar Association’s nearly half-century-old monopoly on rating judicial nominees’ qualifications for office. Since the administration of President Dwight D. Eisenhower, the American Bar Association has provided the service to presidents of both parties and the nation by vetting the qualifications of those under consideration for lifetime appointment to the federal judiciary. The Federalist Society believed the ABA showed a liberal bias in its recommendations.[9][10][11] For example, while former Supreme Court clerks nominated to the Court of Appeals by Democrats had an average rating of slightly below well qualified, similar Republican nominees were rated on average as only qualified/well qualified. In addition the ABA gave Ronald Reagan’s judicial nominees Richard Posner and Frank H. Easterbrook its lowest possible ratings of qualified/not qualified .[12] Judges Posner and Easterbrook have gone on to become the two most highly-cited judges in the federal appellate judiciary.[13]

About Whitebox Advisors LLC

Whitebox has introduced three strategies since January 2000 individually focused on an identified niche. Each strategy universe of arbitrage opportunities are defined and offer investors the ability to make the allocation decision necessary to effectively diversify their portfolio holdings. Additionally, the fund offerings are structured with liquidity terms appropriate to the style of investing. The aforementioned factors are different from that of a multi-strategy structure and we believe better. This structure provides for containment of strategy drift and does not influence strategy allocation decisions that may be driven by liquidity.

Mission
The mission of The Rosenkranz Foundation is to encourage the highest levels of achievement and innovation in public policy, higher education and the arts. It seeks to promote fresh and effective intellectual perspectives. It is committed to promoting intellectual diversity in public policy discourse and higher education.

History

The Rosenkranz Foundation was established by Robert Rosenkranz in 1985. Its focus is on public policy research, higher education, and the arts, with an emphasis on Asian art. In public policy, it has initiated the Intelligence Squared US (IQ2 US) series of debates in the United States, launching in September 2006, and has supported such think tanks as the Manhattan Institute and the American Enterprise Institute. In higher education, it has made several grants to Yale University, funding the creation of 20 new courses in scientific method and quantitative reasoning, endowing the Rosenkranz Writer-in-Residence program there, and underwriting the renovation of Rosenkranz Court in Pierson College. It also provides support for The Federalist Society and other initiatives to promote intellectual diversity in legal education. In Asian art, it has sponsored a major traveling exhibition and scholarly catalogue on the artist and writer Mu Xin, donated a substantial collection of modern Chinese art to the Harvard University Art Museums and has helped fund the production of a series of books on the culture and civilization of China published by Yale University Press. The Rosenkranz Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation.

A Path to Financial Stability

APRIL 2009
A sound business strategy is important no matter what the state of the economy. As you work with clients to determine the best methods of surviving the recession, be sure to discuss the following critical points for seizing opportunities to refocus, contain expenses and reassure customers.

Take a fresh look at your budgetary and revenue needs. Are you meeting budgeted projections? How much of a drop in revenue can your business withstand and for how long? What are your cash-flow needs for the next 90 to 120 days? Or 120 to 180 days? Do you have sufficient cash reserves for the next 30 to 60 days?

Check with your lenders on the status of your credit lines. Are you in compliance with their terms? Will your bank renew their commitments at similar amounts, rates and terms? If your credit lines are frozen or at their limits, consider meeting with vendors to work out a payment schedule that will allow continued delivery of critical materials and supplies.

Look into alternative types of financing. Consider loans on life insurance policies and loans from key customers that rely on your business for their materials and supplies or from labor unions, local development agencies or the U.S. Small Business Administration.

Keep an eye on accounts receivable and the amount of credit extended to customers. Watch for new patterns of slow payments and follow up immediately. Review your largest and riskiest accounts to determine if credit constraint or an economic slowdown will affect their ability to pay you. Keep receivables aging current.

Closely manage accounts payable. Forfeiting early pay discounts may be more advantageous in preserving cash that may be needed for critical items. Keep payables aging current.

Monitor inventory levels in general to identify where lower inventory levels of materials and products can be maintained. Consider selling slowmoving inventory at a discount. Keep in contact with suppliers to co-manage replenishment and delivery schedules to avoid building excess inventory while at the same time avoiding shortages that could result in lost revenue.

Analyze your expenses specifically to determine if spending can be reduced. Communicate to staff/team members about tightening spending. Manufacturers should review inventory management practices for opportunities to reduce on-hand inventory. Service companies should ensure they’re capturing all their billable hours and invoicing promptly by billing all contractual items and passthrough expenses (that is, billable third-party services and travel and living expenses).

Don’t engage in panic selling of investments. Keep in mind that markets tend to bounce back. Focus on longterm rewards instead of reacting emotionally to short-term events. Contact your financial adviser to ensure that your portfolio is diversified and meets your risk tolerance.

Contact your good customers. Even casual discussions can lead to new business opportunities. Maintain constant communication with customers to help build stronger relationships; let them know you are available even during uncertain times. Consider ways to stay visible to customers, such as an open house or other marketing efforts.

Going forward. Continually re-evaluate and gauge your company’s current situation and the marketplace. Revisit this checklist often, stay the course and remain focused on goals. Keep track of efforts, and review and analyze the results. Identify areas where strategies are not working and modify accordingly.
