Civil RICO Practice Manual, Second Edition, takes you from the basic concepts to specialized problems of a civil RICO case. The author walks you through every complex aspect, from early pleading stages through the appeals process. You'll not only see how to use RICO on the offensive, but also develop proven strategies you can use to defend against it at trial. And you'll learn new tactics that will still let you use the statute in a securities fraud lawsuit, even after the enactment of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act. Plus, you'll receive insightful analyses of the eight major RICO cases decided by the U.S. Supreme Court, such as NOW v. SCHEIDLER.
The book also gives you updated practice forms designed to give you complete, easy-to-understand guidance for handling all phases of a civil RICO action from the actual complaint and pretrial matters to settlement agreements and even appeal.
