S.J. Quinney College of Law Professor Shima Baradaran Baughman was quoted in the July 1, 2016 edition of The Salt Lake Tribune. The story, titled “New Supreme Court bribery ruling could undermine Swallow, Shurtleff charges,” discusses rule changes for prosecuting public corruption.
“The biggest impact that this case may have on the charges against the two former attorneys general are the standard by which their dealings with potentially shady donors are held to,” University of Utah law professor Shima Baradaran Baughman said. “It is possible that due to this ruling, the state courts in Utah will require a stricter standard to prove the charges of corruption and fraud.”
