In 1909, the Supreme Court decided New York Central & Hudson River R.R. Co. v. United States, which held that corporations are subject to criminal punishment for offenses committed by their employees. A century later, the application of the criminal sanction to business organizations is taken for granted. Hasnas will argue that New York Central was a mistake when it was decided, remains a mistake today, and should be explicitly overruled.
