You are law clerk to a federal judge. She tells you that she expects to be getting a case in which a defendant is charged with aiding and abetting terrorism by contributing to an organization that helps fund terrorist activities. The judge knows little about the new laws designed to counter terrorism. She would like you to advise her as to what the issues are likely to be.
Write her an 8-page memo (double-spaced, 12-pt. Times New Roman), discussing some of the issues that might arise under the Foreign Intelligence Security Act, the Anti-Terrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996 and the USA PATRIOT Act.
You don’t know the facts of any case yet, and you are not expected to resolve all of the legal issues. The judge just wants a “heads up” on what issues the parties may raise so that she can start to familiarize herself with the law.
