The party to the proceeding in the Fifth Circuit, whose judgment is sought to be reviewed, is Peti- tioner James Brooks.

James Patrick Phillips and Wesley C.  Walton were co-defendants in the underlying action and appellants below, but are not parties to this petition. They are filing separately.

Petitioner James Brooks makes a different argu- ment than Petitioners Walton and Phillips concern- ing mens rea in complex regulatory criminal cases. Walton and Phillips also raise an issue that is unique to them concerning defense witness immunity in their separate petition.

No corporations are parties in this proceeding.
