Bittner v. The U.S. is a case about a defendant, Alexandru Bittner, who failed to file five annual reports under the Bank Secrecy Act, which requires citizens to report involvement with foreign banks. The question in the case is how to determine the penalty for violating the Bank Secrecy Act. 

If Bittner wins, he will only have to pay $50,000. 

If The U.S. wins, he’ll have to pay $2.72 million.
