Sacks says it’s helpful to have a clear definition of what “official acts” are that cause someone to be guilty. He recognizes that it’s not over, but that the decision could help Burfoot’s case.

In March a judge ruled Burfoot’s case would not be heard until after the Supreme Court ruling in the McDonnell’s case.
