Yeager v. United States
No. 08-67

Title:

    Yeager v. United States, 08-67

Subject:

    Criminal Law and Procedure, Collateral Estoppel

Question:

    Whether, when a jury acquits a defendant on multiple counts but fails to reach a
    verdict on other counts that share a common element, and, after a complete review
    of the record, the court of appeals determines that the only rational basis for the
    acquittals is that an essential element of the hung counts was determined in the
    defendant's favor, collateral estoppel bars a retrial on the hung counts.
