       When real estate superbroker Kelly Barrett invited retirees to join her exclusive wine club, they all dreamed of la dolce vita—private tours of European vineyards, majestic accommodations fit for royalty, and of course, the rarest and most exquisite wines in the world. But when the equity in their homes mysteriously vanishes within weeks of joining the club, it leaves a bad taste in everyone's mouth and Barrett soon finds herself facing charges of identity theft and wire fraud. With a cast of colorful, and not entirely trustworthy, business associates surrounding her, Barrett maintains her innocence and suggests there's no shortage of blame to go around. Is this a case of a well-intentioned bon vivant being set up to take the fall for her cohorts' sneaky thievery? Or did Barrett put the "booze" in bamboozle and use her wine club as a means to make off with millions?

       United States v. Barrett is a challenging white collar crime file that will test students' advocacy and examination skills through this full trial. It features three witnesses per side, an expert witness in criminal fraud, and a bounty of assorted evidence, including social media evidence in the form of emails, blog posts, and websites on online "microsites." In this well-balanced case of deception among the vines, students will prevail entirely on their own legal prowess—and discover just how much truth there really is in wine.
