Barry Boss, vice chair of Cozen O’Connor’s Commercial Litigation Department, participated on a panel titled “The Scourge of Over-Criminalization in the Regulatory Process.” The event focused on over-criminalization, which is the making and enforcing of vague, often duplicative laws. Over-criminalization affects all Americans by robbing us of our fundamental civil rights and costing taxpayers billions of dollars each year for criminal justice programs that are wasteful and even harmful. Over-criminalization also encourages prosecutors to over-charge for minor offenses that would be more appropriately addressed under civil or administrative law.
