Cassell Quoted in Washington Times Story on AG Nominee Loretta Lynch

Professor Paul Cassell is quoted in a January 4, 2015, Washington Times story, “Loretta Lynch questioned over secret deal depriving fraud victims of $40m.”

In a 2013 letter to the House Judiciary Committee, Cassell said that Lynch, the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, had failed to notify victims in a major case that they might have recourse for their losses under the Crime Victims Restitution Act, or CVRA.

“Every day that the office withholds notice from the victims in this case about the continuing proceedings that are occurring in this case is a day in which the office is violating the CVRA,” he urged the subcommittee in a letter, according to the article.

“I do think it’s something that the Senate should be investigating as part of the confirmation process,” Cassell said in an interview with the paper.
