Eyes Wide Shut: Recent Second Circuit Concurrence Continues Debate on Conscious Avoidance Doctrine

Added: 22.10.2014 22:40 | 0 views | 0 comments


The legal doctrine of “conscious avoidance,” which provides that a defendant who deliberately shields himself from clear evidence of critical facts is considered equally liable as one who has actual knowledge, continues to provoke debate. The doctrine, also referred to as “willful blindness,” can be critical in complex white-collar criminal cases, where the defendant’s awareness of others’ wrongful conduct is commonly a central issue. We recently addressed the doctrine in an article, “Conscious Avoidance: An Over-Used Doctrine,” following the March 2014 conviction of five former employees of Bernard Madoff after a trial that turned almost entirely on the question whether the defendants had knowledge of Madoff’s illegal Ponzi scheme. More recently, Second Circuit Judge Pierre Leval issued a concurring opinion in United States v. Fofanah that provides a detailed and thought-provoking analysis of Second Circuit law regarding when it is appropriate to give a conscious avoidance charge to a jury. The opinion provides no comfort to those concerned that the doctrine is overused and threatens to permit juries to convict on a less culpable mental state than required by statute.
