Peter Thomson Authors Article on Taylor v. United States

Peter Thomson authored the article "Taylor v. United States" for The Federalist Society.  The article examines whether the government has to prove beyond a reasonable doubt the interstate commerce element in a Hobbs Act prosecution of a defendant who robs a drug trafficker or whether the government may simply rely on proof that the person robbed was dealing in drugs which is an inherent economic enterprise that satisfies, as a matter of law, the interstate commerce element set forth in the statute.  A copy of the article can be found here
