Joe Hayden a member of Pashman Stein Walder Hayden’s Criminal Defense and Governmental and Internal Investigations Group was quoted in the NJ.com article, “In Shocking Move, Feds Drop all Charges Against Sen. Bob Menendez.” The article reports on the decision of the U.S. Justice Department to drop its case against U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez.

“Given the overwhelming number of the jurors in favor of acquittal, and the decision by Judge Walls entering a judgment of acquittal for insufficient evidence to prove the political contribution counts, it was clear the government had no choice but to dismiss the counts,” Hayden said. “They did not have a provable case.”
