This recent civil penalty case from the Supreme Court is worth a read. In Bittner v. United States (https://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/22pdf/21-1195_h3ci.pdf), the Court considers the interpretation of the Bank Secrecy Act. Justice Gorsuch's opinion does a nice job discussing statutory interpretation and Skidmore deference. Most significantly for military criminal practitioners, Justice Gorsuch discusses application of the Rule of Lenity. There is a lot of good language for that appellate attorney invoking the Rule of Lenity.
