U.S. SUPREME COURT - Double Jeopardy

"Could Supreme Court’s double jeopardy case reverse 170 years of precedent?" PBS NewsHour 12/6/2018


SUMMARY:  A Supreme Court case is challenging a long-held interpretation of the Fifth Amendment’s ban on prosecution for the same crime twice, known as double jeopardy.  The National Law Journal's Marcia Coyle joins Amna Nawaz to explain the 170-year-old “separate sovereigns” exception, what questions the court had during arguments and why the case draws attention to the special counsel’s Russia probe.
