U.S. v. Teller: a New Plea Bargaining Role Play from HNMCP

United States v. Teller, a newly released negotiation role play case by Sam W. Straus and Robert C. Bordone of the Harvard Negotiation and Mediation Clinical Program (HNMCP), explores the challenges of negotiating plea bargains in the face of intense principal-agent tensions that pose ethical challenges. The case involves domestic terrorism and hate crime charges.  Although the fact pattern is fictional, it draws loosely on actual events in U.S. history, including the Oklahoma City bombing of a federal building in 1995 and the Boston Marathon bombing of 2013.
