Columnist Wade Davies writes in the July-August Tennessee Bar Journal about the controversy over the U.S. Department of Justice’s motion to dismiss the case against Michael Flynn, and the important issues regarding the scope of authority between prosecutors and courts. "Can prosecutors always dismiss criminal cases? If not, why not? Can the court force a prosecutor to proceed with a case the prosecutor wants to dismiss?" After looking at the Flynn filings, Davies wondered whether controversies like this happen in Tennessee, and under what circumstances. Read what he learned in his column, "Crime & Punishment."
