Sixth Circuit: Child porn restitution orders must be based on individual culpability

Paul Cassell, a criminal law professor at the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law, who filed a brief for amicus Vicky and participated in oral argument, said he's aware of three pending petitions for certiorari to the U.S. Supreme Court on this issue. "We think that Congress commanded that each defendant is jointly and severally liable for the full amount of their losses as the Fifth Circuit en banc has recently ruled," Cassell wrote.
