Overview

Federal White Collar Crime, Cases and Materials / Edition 5

This law school casebook addresses substantive and procedural areas of importance in white-collar criminal practice. The book covers a variety of substantive crimes, including perjury, false statements, false claims, obstruction of justice, mail and wire fraud, public corruption, insider trading, conspiracy, Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act, and money laundering. It then tackles procedural issues critical to white-collar practice such as grand jury, discovery, the Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination as applied to testimony and physical evidence, the attorney-client privilege, representation issues, plea bargaining and cooperation agreements, and parallel proceedings. The materials emphasize ethical issues facing criminal law practitioners. This revision covers: important Supreme Court decisions in the areas of mens rea (Global-Tech; Flores-Figueroa), fraud (Skilling), and RICO (Boyle); congressional action in the areas of False Claims, the new securities whistleblower program, money laundering, and the rules of evidence; amendments by the Sentencing Commission in the areas of organizational sentencing and departure analysis; and DOJ action, such as the Attorney General’s shift in charging policy and guidance regarding FCPA compliance programs.
