26 Federal Sentencing Reporter 86 (2013)
This brief essay comments on Attorney General Eric Holder's much-publicized announcement in 2013 of new federal prosecution priorities. While Holder's announcement represents a welcome shift away from the rigid legalism that has dominated federal prosecutorial policies for a generation, some concerns are also highlighted in the essay.
