Justices Limit Restitution for Child Pornography Victims

Reacting to the decision, Amy’s high court counsel, Paul Cassell of the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law, said, “The majority of the court says Amy will be compensated fully some day. Our concern is that some day may be too far in the future to ever really as a practical matter occur.”

Cassell said he, Amy and her supporters would urge Congress to amend the statute to ensure that victims get restitution quickly. “We’re still evaluating options here,” he said. “Justice Sotomayor has a very straightforward and simple way to fix the statute and that certainly would be one quick way to fix the problem.”
