18 U.S.C. 1015(a) Not CIMT: USA v. Li

"In sum, the Court concludes that a violation of [18 U.S.C.] § 1015(a) is not inherently fraudulent and does not include the element of materiality essential to perjury.  As a result, the crime Li was convicted of committing is not categorically a crime involving moral turpitude." - USA v. Li, Mar. 6, 2014.  [Hats off to 2013 MacArthur ("Genius Award") Fellow Margaret D. Stock!]
