The DOJ eventually dismissed all charges against all defendants, even those who had pleaded guilty in plea bargains.

Can the accused get legal fees and damages or is this a win for the Feds because they cost the defendants millions and intimidated the industry?

Plea bargains should be ruled unConstitutional. It really leads to more, not less prosecutorial abuse. Just as administrative law allows the executive branch to abuse the public, plea bargaining allows prosecutors with weak cases to claim a “win”.

Instead, in cases like this, we need a mechanism such that the prosecutor should be fired and defense funds repaid by the government.

One of the biggest fears of the Founders were political prosecutions. Doesn’t any American learn history any more?
