Partner Michael Rosensaft Discusses Boston Marathon Bombing Case with Los Angeles Times and Reuters

Firm News | April 29, 2013
Michael Rosensaft, a partner in the Litigation and Dispute Resolution practice, spoke with the Los Angeles Times and Reuters about the handling of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. The former federal prosecutor explains that investigators would have initially focused on obtaining information about the plot. "First and foremost, your priority is to stop other threats and protect the public. After that, you can focus on the prosecution." Mr. Rosensaft anticipates that plea negotiations will begin almost immediately due to the apparent evidence against Tsarnaev: "If defense counsel is convinced the case against her client is exceptionally strong, speaking about a plea or possible cooperation is something defense counsel will be considering.” He adds that prosecutors will move quickly to decide whether or not to seek the death penalty, since “that obviously changes the tone of the case.” ("Legal Options Were Few in Handling of Boston Bombing Suspect," April 27, 2013; “What Next for Boston Bombing Suspect?” April 22, 2013)
